    Main Villains 

The Whole Trio

  • Balloon Belly: All of them get this when they eat a lot. Except for Horrorman, because, well, he's a skeleton.
    • Whenever they have a big belly, this can also rip their costumes if they're in disguise as someone else.
  • Big Eater: Oh boy, do they have a big craving for eating food.
  • Butt-Monkey/ The Chew Toy: Oh boy, they suffered a lot of this big time.
  • Master of Disguise: They can easily disguise themselves as an innocent bystander or another character.
  • Terrible Trio: Baikinman is considered the leader, while the latter are the henchmen (though they can be consider equals).
  • A Twinkle in the Sky: Pretty much every time they get punched by Anpanman towards the end of the episode.

Baikinman/Bacteriaman (ばいきんまん)

Voiced by: Ryusei Nakao

The main antagonist of the series.

He was an alien from another planet. His egg followed the same shooting stars that would give birth to Anpanman of Earth.

  • Evil Laugh: HAHIHUHEHO!!!
  • Evil Knockoff: Had one in the 2009 film short.
  • Harmless Villain: Although he uses violence, he never seems to have a desire to kill.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Why else would he have his spaceship and all of his machinery other than to defeat Anpanman?
  • Gratuitous English: He would often say "Okay!", Spicy!", "Chance!", and "Let's Go!".
    • Language Barrier: While he does understand English, he has trouble trying to speak it. This is proven example from the Edutainment specials.
  • Guys Are Slobs: Other than his hatred for baths, he doesn't really keep his lair really organized and tidied up.
  • The Grinch/ The Scrooge: Inverted. While he doesn't hate Christmas, he does like ruining it for others.
  • Hates Baths: He doesn't like taking baths, which shrinks him to a tiny fly and changes color into white instead of black. Though he doesn't seem to have a problem of washing his hands in the edutainment specials.
  • I Choose to Stay: After saving the Princess Powder Snow at the end of the 2005 film, she asked Baikinman if he wants to join with her in the kingdom. He chooses not to.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite being a jerk, he can often show his nice side.
  • Karma Houdini: He never gets any punishment for any of the damage he's done. Though the only punishment he mostly gets is getting punched by Anpanman or any of the other heroes.
  • Kick the Dog: He'll often be a backstabber to whoever he's trying to convince Anpanman is the bad guy. Like when he kicked Panpon off of his UFO after he was done rusting Uncle Jam's oven.
  • Literal Surveillance Bug: He uses one to spy on what Anpanman and the Bakery staff to see what's going on.
    • Mind-Control Device: He also made a few of them as mind control devices, like what he did on Tin Kid.
  • Made of Explodium: Pretty much every time he gets punched, his ship explodes into pieces.
  • Meaningful Name: Baikin is Japanese for "bacteria" and "germs".
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: In one episode, he and Dokinchan were finding a secret treasure in the middle of the desert. They poked it, only to unleash some underground water which created an oasis. The main heroes actually thanked him for finding it.
    • Another example was when Motchi-kun was heading the wrong way to Oshiruko-chan's house and he showed him the right path. Though that was done on purpose since he likes Oshiruko-chan's dishes.
  • Overly Long Tongue: Uses this either when he eats or as a weapon.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: In the Edutainment episodes, he's the red to Anpanman's blue.
  • Remembered I Could Fly: There are a few times where he'll fall off of something, but he remembers that he has wings to fly.
  • Secret Identity Apathy: He knows Naganegiman's real identity, but he doesn't plan to reveal to everyone. Mostly because he knows that he'll always defeat him, no matter what.
  • Shrink Ray: He built one in an episode where he plans to use it to shrink his nemesis, only to get shrunk himself thanks to Horrorman.
  • Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome: Similar to Anpanman's first appearance, he started out as a infant/toddler until the second half of the episode. Though somewhat justified since he's an alien.
  • Smoke Out: He uses this to get away.
  • Take Over the World: His original main goal was the turn the whole world infected by germs. However, he seems to stray away from this plan since after his debut.
  • Temporary Love Interest: He'll often have a crush on certain female characters, but forget about them by the next episode.
  • The Tooth Hurts: Prior to Mushibakinman's debut, Baikinman would often try to give people toothaches. Best example was in Hamigakiman's debut episode.
    • Baikinman would often give himself a toothache, either because of Mushibakinman or when his teeth just lacked brushing. This happened to him in one of the edutainment specials when he and the other kids were eating lunch and they're about to brush their teeth. Anpanman warned Baikinman to brush his teeth, but he ignored this because he wants to play. However, he felt a pain in his mouth, and Hamigakiman came to help.
  • Those Two Bad Guys: With either Dokinchan or Mushibakinman.
    • Terrible Trio: With both Dokinchan and Horrorman. Also with his brothers Aokinman and Akakinman.
  • Villain Respect: Did this to Banna (Who is the main protagonist of the 2012 film). Despite this, Baikinman's an antagonist while Banna is a protagonist
  • Villain Song: Has a few of them, but his most recognizable one is "Ikuzo! Baikinman".
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Horrorman.
  • Vocal Evolution: Similar to Anpanman, except in the opposite way. He went from having a gruff voice, to eventually having his current screechy voice.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Originally in his early appearances, he usually gets defeated by being cleaned with soap or toothpaste, which makes him shrink. This was later changed for being punched, which is more famous. Though they brought back his original weakness in the more recent episodes.
  • Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: There was one episode where he did actually wanted to smash Anpanman's head while he was napping in a meadow. Unfortunately, this plan didn't work as he started to feel sleepy as well.
  • Wings Do Nothing: Somewhat subverted. He can use his wings for flight, but not for a long time due to him being weak.

  • Kawaiiko
  • Meaningful Name: Doki-doki is a Japanese onomatopoeia for a rapid heartbeat.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: Usually let's Shokupanman go if Baikinman's captures him. Then again, what do you expect from her?

  • Vocal Evolution: Her voice became softer in the later episodes.
  • Weapon of Choice: Originally her spear. She later uses a hammer, though this is just used to whack Baikinman.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Though she never intentionally intends to kill them (remember, this a kids show), she does point a weapon on the kid characters if Anpanman does try to hit Baikinman. This is just to weaken Anpanman so Baikinman can attack back.
