Characters: World Heroes

Characters who appear in the time-traveling fighting game series World Heroes.

World Heroes

Hanzou Hattori

Kotaro Fuuma

Janne D'Arc

Kim Dragon

Muscle Power

  • All American Face: Mostly evident in his Perfect ending. ("America! A great body from that great land!")
  • Badass Beard: In the first game; he shaved his moustache because it was unpopular with kids.
  • Bicep-Polishing Gesture
  • Catch Phrase: "NUMBER ONE!" Also, at least 90% of his dialogue revolves around muscles and exercise.
  • Eagleland: Type 1.
  • Fail O Sucky Name: "Muscle Power" is up there with Fight Fever's "Magic Dunker."
  • Friend to All Children: His profile states that he has a soft spot for children.
  • Lightning Bruiser: He's a pro-wrestler, sure. But he has a great mobility due to his lariat and drop kick, and god help you if he ever lands a grab on you. His only problem? He's the only character in the series without a command move that destroys projectiles, so he's fairly helpless against them.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: He is Hulk Hogan, complete with Axe Bomber lariat, Leg Drop, big boot kick, "listen-for-applause" taunt and shirt-tearing/arm-flexing intro poses. This is probably the real reason his moustache was nixed after the first game.
  • Pro Wrestling Is Real
  • Underwear of Power
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: His standing block animation has him sticking his chest out to absorb everything from sword slashes to killer sharks.
  • Wearing a Flag on Your Head: Or rather wearing a flag as your wrist-bands, elbow-bands, boots and speedo

Brocken

  • Action Bomb: One of his specials involves blowing his ENTIRE UPPER BODY UP. Like Stroheim, that does not keep him down for long.
  • Blond Guys Are Evil: Mostly subverted after the first game, what with his comic relief-laden endings.
  • Cyborg
  • Expy: Of Brocken Jr. from Kinnikuman and Stroheim from [1]. His ending in Perfect even has him boasting loudly about German technology ("Best in the world! Number one on the planet! Jahahahahaha!")
  • Nice Hat
  • Those Wacky Nazis

Julius Carn

Rasputin

Dr. Sugar Brown

(Neo) Geegus

World Heroes 2

Ryoko Izumo

Captain Kidd

Johnny Maximum

Mudman

Shura Nai Khanomtom

  • Butt Monkey: His family treats him like a nuisance, and several characters' Perfect win quotes (including his own mirror match quote!) touch on his perceived status as dull and unpopular.
  • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: Deeming his Kuuchuu Nidan Mawashi Geri (Twirl Kick) from WH 2 too lethal to use, he sealed it away for Jet. It made its return as the finisher of his MAX Crazy Death Blow in Perfect. The joke here is that it was neither particularly effective nor very spectacular.
  • Hero-Worshipper: To his older brother, as well as Dragon (who reminds him of the former).
  • I Will Find You: His older brother disappeared and may have been killed, so he sets out to find him. Subverted: said brother was looking for him instead and dragged Shura back home while scolding him for going off and worrying their family.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene

Erick

(Neo) Dio

World Heroes 2 Jet

Jack

  • Ax-Crazy
  • Blood Knight: In quite a literal sense: he desires to drink the blood of the world's strongest, and often refers to this in his quotes. His idle animation in Perfect even has him spraying excess blood from his mouth!
  • Evil Redhead
  • Flung Clothing: Shreds his black cloak and top hat in his intro.
  • Jack the Ripper: Half this, half Spring-Heeled Jack.
  • The Quincy Punk: Part of his motif: mohawk hairstyle, heart-shaped tattoo, a penchant for sticking out his tongue farther than the norm....
  • Wearing a Flag on Your Head: One of his win poses sees him donning a cloak with a Union Jack flag motive.
  • Wolverine Claws

Ryofu

Zeus

World Heroes Perfect

Son Gokuu
