Kaiju Big Battel (spellingintentional) is a story of the constant "fighto" between good and evil, played out before live studio audiences.Constant battels by giant batteling monsters threatened the safety and happiness of the Earth. To protect our way of life, the Kaiju Regulatory Committee, KRC, created the Big Battel, to contain the struggle between good and evil and protect the public. And to allow them to watch for a reasonable price. The KRC is led by a mysterious Commissioner, and its events are overseen by a to-scale referee, Referee Jingi. Ringside commentary is provided by Louden Noxious, who is exactly what his name suggests.The faces in the battel include American Beetle, Los Plantanos (the plantain twins), Dusto Bunny, Robox the mighty cardboard robot, and Hero Intern. The organization's chief Heel is Dr. Cube, whose "posse" seeks to destroy civilization as we know it. His minions include The Grudyin and Hell Monkey (the Apes of Wrath), Silver Potato, Superdimensional Slug 1 (SDS-1), and Gomi-man, the radioactive monster formed from New Jersey's trash. A few rogues, like Team Space Bug (led by Uchu Chu) and Kung-Fu Chicken Noodle make trouble for everyone else.Now, without the Kayfabe. Kaiju Big Battel is an affectionate parody of Professional Wrestling and Kaiju monster movies. Colorful characters in foam rubber suits square off in model cityscapes in venues like anime conventions and arthouse theaters. Established in 1996. A TV pilot for G4 has been performed and shot, but not yet aired or picked up.As of this year, there have been sweeping changes throughout the KBB. With newcomers, old friends and foes, and sweeping changes, the Big Battel shall be changed for the better..or the worse, all depending.A common user of Japanese Media Tropes and Professional Wrestling tropes, with a wink, a nod, and a laugh each time.The official site can be found here.
Crossover: Call-Me-Kevin, Unibouzu and D.W. Cycloptopuss III teamed up as the Sea Amigos for the CHIKARA King of Trios 2008 tournament in a losing effort to the Order of the Neo-Solar Temple (UltraMantis Black, Crossbones and Hydra). More significantly, Dr. Cube was the former holder of the Eye of Tyr, and UMB sent Chris Hero to work for Cube in exchange for the Eye, which led to the formation of the BDK at the end of the 2009 Season FinaleThree-Fisted Tales.
This is subverted in the manga; after Dr. Cube wins a championship, he gets a call from Jingi, who tells him that after reviewing tape of the title fight he noticed Cube used some kind of nerve gas when he wasn't paying attention and the match has been declared a draw.
Elite Mooks: Dr. Cube has a handful of Super Minions, minions who have been subjected to his genetic experiments, including Super Minion #96 (who has cinderblocks for hands and feet and wears a stone helmet) and Craw (who has an iron jaw and a giant crayfish claw). Later these would be replaced by Cube's top goons Haack, Slaash, and #13.
Face-Heel Turn - Silver Potato murdered Pablo of Los Plantanos, and joined Dr Cube's Posse. Pedro took revenge for his brother, but then Cube brought Pablo back as a zombie.
It's been discovered via news post that Silver Potato is still alive somewhere out there, and the one who killed Pablo was a fake. To add further, Pablo went through stem cell surgery and is now back to his fun loving self
Fake Ultimate Hero - Super Wrong may be the dance sensation that's sweeping the nation, but his name says it all.
The Giant: Napalean, the single largest kaiju in competition. Every faction has its own Giant type, though: in addition to Napalean of Dr. Cube's Posse, Mota Naru is the certified "Big Guy" of Team Space Bug, Slo Feng is the Heroes' version, and Vegetius fills the role for the Rogues.
Killed Off for Real - The official site actually has a "Graveyard" in its character bio section. Not included there due to dying later and the site never really updating the bios are Sky Deviler and Silver Potato, probably the biggest characters to get killed off forever.
No Celebrities Were Harmed - According to his official bio, Sentai Jin was once a severely handicapped physics genius named Steven Nawt Walking.
Paper-Thin Disguise: Although the CIA Plantains are yellow, wear tracksuits, have "CIA" stamped on their backs, and are obviously bananas, it took Louden and Beav an embarrassingly long time to tell them apart from the real deal, just because they have the same faces as Pablo and Pedro
Punny Name - A few kaiju have names that are puns in Japanese — most notably Shroomatango, "matango" being Japanese for "mushroom".
Retraux - The manga, which is drawn in a style characteristic of the late 70s and specifically resembles early Kinnikuman. Which, hey, was originally about fighting giant monsters before a Genre Shift to pro wrestling.
Rouge Angles of Satin - Apart from the obvious stuff like "battel" and "fighto", the word "rogue" is more often than not spelled "rouge"
Size Shifter - Virtually every fighter has this ability (specifically, growing to giant size); notable exceptions are Napalean, who is always giant, and Dr. Cube, who is (almost) always human sized.
Considering fighting giant monsters like Sky Deviler and Napalean is part of the job description, anyone who does not have this ability innately needs to have some way of achieving the same end. As such, size shifting technology was developed by Robo Dynamics, and then leaked to everyone else after Shadow Trooper Robo went evil.
Surfer Dude: Tadd Bradley, Hawaiian Paddler. He actually uses his board in most of his finishers.
Truce Zone - the local bowling alley, for whatever reason.
