Chrome Dome EmpireThe primary antagonists of the series, the Chrome Dome Empire rules over the world with an iron fist. By the order of its ruler, Czar Baldy Bald IV, the empire's many soldiers have invaded countless villages and towns, cutting people's hair and leaving them in ruins.
Tropes Associated with the Margarita Empire
- Ambiguous Situation: Other than the Czar himself, most of the Block commanders, all of the generic Hair Hunt troops and the countless Cartoon Creatures, all of the soldiers who serve the empire have hair, despite the fact ridding the world of hair is their job. Even the Four Heavenly Kings, Giga and Yami Yasha—the empire's most powerful soldiers—have hair. The fact nobody ever questions this, not even Only Sane Woman Beauty, just makes it stranger.
- Bald of Evil: Zigzagged. The majority of the grunts and the standard leaders, including the leader himself, possess no hair on their head. Initially subverted with H-Block, who have hair, but it turns out to be wigs....only for the Big 4, the right hand man of the Czar and prominent members to have ridiculous anime hair anyway.
- Hypocrite: The bulk of the soldiers of an empire that wants to rid the world of hair... have hair themselves. sometimes to ridiculously Anime Hair extents. How exactly that works, is anybody's guess.
- Leitmotif: Terrifying Margarita Empire, a Dark Reprise for Coming of the Hair Hunters. It is this for the Big 4, the Czar and his aides as a whole.
- Ambiguously Human: Has Pointy Ears and sharp teeth, The Hollywood Cyborg reveal only makes it more complex.
- Authority Equals Asskicking: Subverted when push comes to shove, he's quick to run away when he's cornered.
- Bad Ass Normal: Heavily implied, you gotta respect a guy who's probably as strong as any other human for being able to command over several warriors much stronger than you.
- Justified: despite being part machine, he immediately rides away once his brother takes over.
- Bald of Evil: He's bald and he's a jerk.
- Batman Gambit: Hopes that the newly awakened Former Margarita Empire would defeat Bobobo for him, but it does not work at all. He later holds a tournament hoping that the enemies will kill each other off, but it forces him to vacate his throne when his Eviler Than Thou brother takes over.
- Big Bad: till Hydrate forces him out of power.
- Facial Markings: On his forehead, he has a symbol.
- Godzilla Threshold: Several, reactivating the Wiggin Block, relying on Giga, reawakening the previous generation of Hair Hunters and finally holding the Emperor Playoffs; the latter epically backfires on him.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: His own need to protect his throne is what led to the playoffs in which he loses his title to his brother.
- Hollywood Cyborg: Turns out to be one as demonstrated with partially cybernetic eye, but has none of the fighting power of the Third.
- Informed Ability: Soften makes Giga's power being equal to the 4th which is rendered mute when Hydrate forces him out of power
- Manipulative Bastard: He relies on coercing others to do his work for him and ultimately planned to have them kill each other in order to get the throne. It backfires when Hydrate takes the authority away from him.
- Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: He reliance on others to his work for him ultimately cost him his right to the throne, especially when the one who took the throne was the same little brother he sent away who trained to be by his side!
- Orcus on His Throne: It's no exaggeration that all of his elite forces plus the previous generation of Hair Hunters were defeated before he actually decided to take matters into his own hands, the method which decided to do so, backfires on him epically.
- It becomes justified once it's revealed that he was a Puppet King for Bibibi, having no fighting skills as a result.
- Pointy Ears: Has them along with sharp teeth.
- Puppet King: Bibibi's statement outright state this, which makes sense in hindsight that he didn't ever try to fight Bobobo on his own terms.
- The Reveal: Downplayed, he is actually a Hollywood Cyborg, but his immediate retreat from power reveals he's not that strong.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Once Hydrate takes over, he ungracefully deserts his title to escape with his life.
- Smug Snake: His default fallback is that he calls someone of a high rank in the Empire to kill his enemies for him, and become angry when they lose. Considering he relied on Dengakuman as his first option didn't help his case. It ended up backfiring when his latest scheme to hold a tournament in hopes of finding someone to kill Bobobo for him, results in his dethronement by his very resentful brother, who managed to sneak in his entire kingdom into the tournament due to negligence and laziness of checking who killed Bobobo, only that it got it done.
- The Unfought: Despite being built up the Big Bad of the series for several arcs, he flees his empire once Hydrate takes over. And it turns out he was a Puppet King for Bibibi, to publicly run the Empie.
- The Dragon: In both literal as being a purple dragon and implied to be his right-hand mistress.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: She is the Czar's wife, one of the few people that he truly cares about, in spite of being a terrible boss regardless.
- Fluffy the Terrible: Would you expect a demonic looking dinosaur thing be named "Mako-chan"?
- The Unfought: Like her spouse, she doesn't get to fight Bobobo's group once Hydrate took over.
- Team Pet: To the Czar, being a cute little sausage like octopus, but acts more like the royal announcer of events and advisor to the Emperor.

- Anime Hair: Has purple hair of strands with clips at the end.
- As Super Giga, has two long pigtails.
- Arc Villain: Of Cyber City.
- Break the Haughty: Bobobo delivers a big one to him.
- Body Horror: He contorts the target of his art creation with two demonic shadows that squeeze the target till he/she is a clay doll
- Dimension Lord: As Super Giga, he can create dimension to No-Sell any attack that isn't art.
- The Dragon: To the 4th
- Gratuitous French: His Objet D'Art is very French sounding, considering their association with art, it's done on purpose.
- Living Doll Collector: Does this to Fist users.
- Mind Reading: Giga creates a formula chart to calculate the enemy's thoughts.
- Mad Artist: His Fist, which allows for the creation of pieces of art that he uses to attack.
- One-Winged Angel: Turns into Super Giga, with grotesque armor and long pigtails.
- Smug Super: You thought Halekulani was smug, then he's absolutely humble compared to Giga's ego. To a point that he actually pretends that one attack was a Super Fist, only to reveal it wasn't.
- Sonic Stunner: Giga Sound, which summons giant speakers to immobilize the enemy.
- The Worf Effect: The Dragon of the Czar himself ends up being effortlessly defeated by Crimson, one of the Shadow Chrome Dome Empire's Big Four, during the Bald Bowl. It happens again in Shinsetsu, where he's defeated by Hiragi and GURA.
The Four Heavenly Kings
- Authority Equals Asskicking: With the exception of Kittypoo, each of them are very strong in their own right, easily surpassing the skills of the Block leaders while
- Big Bad Ensemble: While nominally top warriors that enforce the Emperor's will along with Giga, they act as individual villains of the own arcs with Battleship/Gunkan being The Starscream, Halekulani doing whatever he wants, OVER being around to be able to cut hair and kill others, and only Kittypoo's loyalties being ambiguous being defeated easily before he could get an arc to elaborate on his loyalties, which are all rendered mute when they all enter the Emperor's tournament to get back at Bobobo and potentially overthrow their former boss anyhow.
- Co-Dragons: With Giga
- Four Is Death: These four are the deadliest warriors in the current Empire outside of Giga and his Six Cyber Knights.
The First member of the Big 4, he was originally a fellow trainee/rival to Bobobo until he was not chosen to become the next heir. He, through unexplained series of events becomes a member of the Big 4. Despite his power, he wanted to overthrow the empire and become its new leader. He kidnaps Beauty to force Bobobo to fight him, Bobobo wins and reveals that he only wanted to be acknowledged. After that he is flat out ignored for the rest of the story.
- Affably Evil: He's the least evil of the Big 4, and he's an oddball like the rest of the main cast.
- A Father to His Men: He's much nicer to his minions than the other three, especially Kitty Poo and Halekulani
- Benevolent Boss: Implied to have a more stable relationship with his minions than the rest of the four.
- Aloof Older Brother: We didn't even known he had a sibling working for the Hair Kingdom until he revealed himself.
- Arc Villain: Arguably the Disc-One Final Boss of the first half of the series ending the complete reliance on gags, and beginning its Genre Shift to Shōnen leading into the OVER arc
- Beard of Evil: For some reason (other than being able to see his mouth more clearly), his beard is white while his pompadour is black.
- Beware the Silly Ones: Despite being almost completely nonsensical as Bobobo, he's just as badass.
- Big Bad: Of the Pomemade Ring Arc.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Despite being a wacko, he's just as effective a Nose hair user as Bobobo, if only he didn't try to use it for his own gain.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Like Bobobo, and is the last major Big Bad with this intentional trait.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He may be as big of a fool as Bobobo, but he's also one of the four leaders of the Hair Hunt Troop.
- Evil Counterpart: To Bobobo, in terms of nose-hair fighting style, Cloud Cuckoo Lander personality, having a supportive younger girl to aide him, who's much more lucid than him and having opposing hairstyles (afro versus pompadour).
- Greater-Scope Villain: Of the arcs leading up to and during the C-Block and A-Block Arcs, with his agents acting on his behalf or he himself being subtly hinted throughout the early part of the series.
- Hard Work Hardly Works: Didn't earn the title as a master of the Fist of the Nose Hair because he doesn't have Royal Blood to the Hair Kingdom.
- Multiple-Choice Past: To go with his Bad Liar tendencies, he goes from saying he met Bobobo in a street brawl to being robots before finally admitting his Freudian Excuse of Hard Work Hardly Works.
- Obfuscating Stupidity: When confronted with the fact he's one of the Big 4, he pretends to be an octopus so therefore he's not guilty of his crimes.
- Prehensile Hair: Like Bobobo, he can use nosehair to attack his enemies. Even his ducktail at one point
- The Resenter: Despite being being much harder working than Bo-bobo, he wasn't chosen to inherit the dojo because he wasn't descended from the Hair Kingdom. Or they were giant HumongousMechas and Bo-bobo got more prestige by having a better pilot. Either way, never forgave Bo-bobo for not giving him any credit.
- Rival Turned Evil: To Bobobo, through Hard Work Hardly Works Freudian Excuse reasons.
- The Star Scream: To the Margarita Empire, he even outright states it when he was interrogated.
- Subverted: really wanted Bobobo to acknowledge him as a warrior.
The second member of the Big 4, a horned cat who rides in a pod that flies around in a pod with two elite henchmen, killing innocent lives if he gets annoyed by them and takes pleasure in it. Remind you of anyone? He finds Bobobo while terrorizing a village and proceeds to say how strong he is and how weak Gunkan was. Then, he gets beaten in one move by Don Patch of all people
- Expy: Of Frieza. Both normally travel in flying pods, have one effeminate (although in Purupu's case, it's a woman) and one Gonk (in this case, a box of cigarettes/chocolates) henchmen accompanying them, are sadistic and are beaten easily by a character who later gains a Super Mode. They're also both voiced by Ryusei Nakao
- Hellish Pupils: Comes out when he's ready to kill
- Informed Ability: He and his henchman were supposedly stronger than Gunkan but all three were curb stomped by Don Patch of all people, which is further supported by Hatenko and Gasser's indications.
- Minor Major Character: He's one of the Big Bad's top Quirky Mini Boss Squad, but is defeated even easier than most of the named Mooks that had been faced so far.
- Small Name, Big Ego: If his swift defeat by Don Patch is an indication, then his claim of being Gunkan's superior is extremely exaggerated.
- Smug Snake: He talks a good game, but seriously lacks the power, his other teammates had. Doubles as Small Name, Big Ego.
The third member of the Big 4, he commands an army of Ninja and being the most extremely dedicated to cutting hair. He punishes Battleship and Kittypoo for their failures by cutting off their hair. Then challenges Bobobo to fight him, with the latter eventually getting the better of him. That is until he transforms into a torpedo....girl?!! He/She proceeds to beat the crap of him until he defeats him/her with an ultimate technique. He attempts a hostage situation with Suzu, only to be curb stomped by Bobobo again. He returns as Torpedo Girl to help the main cast, until she becomes Over again against the Third, only a short time later to remain as Torpedo Girl until the end of the series.
- Ambiguously Human: He has pointy ears, six orbs on his chest that light up when he's angered, and that's not even getting into the fact that his true form is an anthropomorphic torpedo.
- Arc Villain: Of the "OVER's Castle" arc
- Arch-Enemy: Jelly Jiggler is this to him, with his existence being enough to target him specifically.
- Ax-Crazy: The craziest in the conventional sense in that he has an extreme Hair-Trigger Temper and a morbid obsession with cutting hair, but not as crazy as BattleShip.
- Big Scissors: His main weapon, he uses it as a sword or just cutting people's hair
- Blood Knight: He wants to fight Bobobo because he is strong and takes a liking to him after he's beaten by him.
- Berserk Button: His six orbs act as this whenever he gets annoyed, especially with Jelly Jiggler.
- The Brute: Among all of the Big 4, he is the first to resort to fighting rather than wait patiently like his cohorts to explain himself.
- The Comically Serious: His Ax-Crazy personality remains unflappable throughout all of his appearances even with all of the antics on display.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: When he gets annoyed, he gets extremely angry, when all orbs light up he...
- Multiple-Choice Past: As Torpedo Girl, she's introduced with the notion she was built as a standard model, but then a conflicting story with Hydrate states that she had a childhood with her father, Landmine Dandy being her father and neither explains how OVER himself came into the equation.
- One-Winged Angel: transforms into a female torpedo with lipstick, long fair legs with red heel toed shoes, eyelashes and a ridiculously feminine personality, even the main characters are just disappointed by this.
- Knight of Cerebus: He's played up as a legitimately serious villain with few quirks compared to the previous two Kings who were both quite goofy. Even his weapon, a giant pair of scissors, is comparatively tame in comparison to most fighting styles and also incredibly dangerous given the series' focus on hair. Then he transforms into Torpedo Girl, but ends up being a dangerous threat anyway due to being very effective against the goofiness of the heroes as she instantly attacks them whenever they act goofy.
- Only Sane Man: He's quite annoyed by Bobobo's actions, but he never has any of the outrageous outbursts that the rest of the straight men do. Despite becoming incredibly goofy himself when transformed into Torpedo Girl, her power actually comes from calling out others on their stupidity.
- Shear Menace: He wields a BFS version of these as a weapon to violently slash with bloody results or or generate violet energy slashes at his enemies}} in the anime.
- Sixth Ranger: As Torpedo Girl, complete with a HeelFace Turn.
- Smug Super: As Torpedo Girl, she's a very justified confidence that she is nigh-unstoppable and for the majority of the fight, there's little to prove her wrong.
- The Smurfette Principle: As Torpedo Girl, she's technically the only female of the Big 4, even though OVER is considered the official identity of the third seat.

- Token Evil Teammate: When he returns to being Over, he only helps Bobobo with the intention of killing him sooner or later after they kill the big villain at the time.
- White Hair, Black Heart: Has a long mane of white hair.
- You Have Failed Me: Punishes Kitty Poo and Battleship for losing to Bobobo.
The final and strongest of the Big 4, he left the empire for unknown reasons; only to conveniently come back as soon as the other three were defeated. He waits for Bobobo to come after him, only to beaten a little more easily than Over. He eventually helps Bobobo against the Shadow Empire, never to appear again afterwards until the end of the series.
- Anime Hair: Spiky Shonen Hair of green.
- Anti-Hero: After his HeelFace Turn, he decides to fight the Reverse Empire with the Rebels, but is mostly motivated by anger at nearly being used. During the fight against Crimson, after suffering repeated attacks from both sides, he regains his Blank White Eyes and starts throwing money at everyone, though this does aide in defeating Crimson by allowing the creation of Kintenbo.
- Arc Villain: Of the "Hallelujah Land"
- Armor Is Useless: During the course of their fight, his armor has done nothing to protect him from Bobobo's attacks.
- Zigzagged in the fight against Crimson. After regaining his Blank White Eyes, he transforms his armor into a large amount of money that attacks everyone with. While it is useless as armor, it makes a powerful weapon.
- Bishōnen: He's the most conventionally handsome of the Big 4
- Big Ol' Eyebrows: Green ones.
- Blank White Eyes: During his Villainous Breakdown, and it's creepy.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Ultimately, what his nearly one-sided fight with Bobobo amounted to. Not helped by the fact he gets hit twice immediately into the fight.

- Freudian Excuse: Implied to have one, but Bobobo immediately hits him before he get even started.

- Noodle Incident: Whatever made him left the Empire in the first place.
- Pet the Dog: He saved Beauty from an enemy when he's on his way to the Empire Playoffs, only to tell her to let Bobobo know he's coming.
- HeelFace Turn: What saving Beauty leads to.
- Money Mauling: His Fist of Gorgeousness revolves around this.
- Put on a Bus: After the defeat of the Reverse Empire, he returns to Hallelujah land, serving virtually no role in the remainder of the original series or Shinsetsu. He does receive a cameo at Jelly Jiggler's Margarita reunion party at the end though.
- Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: His Fist of Gorgeousness revolves around this, and the fact that he's rich also. In fact, all he cares about is money, in fact he begins a Madness Mantra about money.
- Super Mode: By gathering all of his wealth's power into his being, he can become much stronger than before...it didn't really help against Bobobo at all
- Taken for Granite: His "Death Money Board Game" slowly turns people into diamonds as he drains their spirit money.
- Talk to the Fist: He's interrupted during his explanation of his Super Fist
- Tragic Villain: It's implied that he has a sad backstory, and he would have told it...if Bobobo had not attacked him before he could get more than one sentence out.
- Bonus manga material reveals he used to live as a street rat, having to steal to survive. His past led to his developing his obsession with money and his Fist of Gorgousness.

- Momma's Boy: He still lives with his mother, much to his lower officers' surprise.

- The Unfought: He never fights Bobobo directly, having been taken out offscreen by Suzu.
The Commander of C-Block
- Arc Villain: Of the C-Block Arc.
- Blow You Away: His fighting style.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Shows up at the meeting with the other top Hair Hunt Troop commanders before taking a bigger role as the Arc Villain of the C-Block Arc.
- The Worf Effect: Twice, he loses easily to Gasser in his introductory fight. and is then easily assimilated by Wall-Man.
- Butt-Monkey: In addition to being defeated by Bobobo easily, the latter completely screws up his date by making him look bad.
- Taken for Granite: Like Medusa, he possesses the power to turn people into stone, but Bobobo turns into various vegetables instead for some odd reason.]

The deputy commander of A-Block.
- Almighty Janitor: Despite only being the Vice-Leader of A Block, he is incredibly powerful, nearly killing Gasser and being a match to Bobobo when they fought. He was only beaten when an unrestrained Gasser managed to overload him. During the Emperor Playoffs, he was worthy of holding a gold medal. To put it in perspective, Giga, who was said to be as strong as Tsuru Tsurulina IV and served as the Wake-Up Call Boss, only had a Silver Medal. Doesn't stop him from suffering a Curb-Stomp Battle against Jelly Jiggler though.
- Bald of Awesome: Practically, the only bald one that is badass other than the 4th.
- Bald of Evil: He is a hair hunter after all, one with an obsession with trophies.
- Curb-Stomp Battle : Surprisingly from Jiggler, who was merely a joke at this point.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Katsu has a large admiration for accessories, leading to him removing Gasser's collar. With the collar removed, Gasser enters his baby mentality, multiplying his power ten fold. The increased amount of gas proves too much for the Playback-Vac, leading to his defeat.
- No-Sell: His power, Playback-Vac, serves as this to any Fist User. It absorbs any Fist Technique by having smiley faces appear all over his body. Whatever they eat is called "Delicious". Even Gasser's farts! It does have a limit though....
- The Dragon: To Jiggler before he became apart of the main cast.
- The Star Scream: Has no problem trying to kill his boss in the Playoffs.
- A Dog Named "Dog": Aside from Loincloth Lloyd and Death Mask, all of the other members names are like this. The rest of the group consists of Calendar, his son June 7th, Tough-Looking Guy, and Gum.
- Animate Inanimate Object: Calendar is a talking calendar, and June 7th is a talking page from inside Calendar. Gum, though, is only animate when the group is wearing their cloaks and masks, and is otherwise just an inanimate stick of yogurt flavored gum.
- Black Cloak: When they first show up, they all appear as humanoids wearing black cloaks with white masks. This is despite the fact that Calendar and June 7th aren't at all humanoid in shape, Tough-Looking Guy is much larger outside of his disguise, and Gum is a stick of gum.
- Companion Cube: Gum somehow goes from being a humanoid in a cloak to being a completely inanimate stick of gum.
- Dark Horse Victory: Jelly Jiggler can't even win a battle against an inanimate stick of gum.
- Non-Indicative Name: There are actually six members of the group, although June 7th claims that his father, Calendar, wasn't a real member. The English dub name for them makes even less sense, since a quartet consists of four people.
- The final member, Death Mask, has an adorable looking kitten face.
(Fundoshitarou) Loincloth Lloyd
- Evil Former Friend: He was Gasser's friend who he fought alongside while defending their home city before joining The Battleship Five Quartet.
- Expy: A very obvious homage to Kinnikuman from his appearance and some of his behavior.

- Killed Off for Real: Was killed after losing all of his calendar pages.
- Expy: Has a very Arnold Schwarzenegger-esque voice in the dub.
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: Manages to dodge Bobobo's Nose Hair, forcing him to use Bobobo World in order to confuse him into insanity.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Delivers an (off-screen) massive one to Don Patch.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Manages to do this psychologically to Jelly Jiggler by being the food that was more preferable to a dog.
- Cats Are Mean: Invoked with his cutesy cat mask.
- Baleful Polymorph: Causes Beauty to become a dol.
- Octopoid Aliens: Resembles a green triple eye-socket version of one with a dopey looking face.
- You Will Be Assimilated: Does this to Geha and planned to do this to Gasser.
- Ambiguously Human: He speaks in a very robotic manner and neither his posture nor expression ever changes, not even when Bo-Bobo attacks him. It's downplayed in the anime, however, where he moves quite a lot, speaks like a regular person and shrieks in pain when attacked.
- Ambiguous Situation: Why exactly he's what Wiggin Birds transform into if a person's Wiggin level's too low, is anyone's guess. There's also the question of whether he's human, or a Ridiculously Human Robot, since he speaks in a robotic manner, has a statue-like posture, and there's more than one of him in the games.
- Frozen Face: He never blinks and his mouth is perpetually agape. Even when Bo-bobo attacks him, his face stays the same.
- Gonk: The crude way he's drawn in, coupled with his statue-like posture and Frozen Face, make him slightly unnerving.
- Non-Standard Character Design: He's drawn in a far sloppier manner compared to how everybody else looks in the manga, probably to reflect how low the Wiggin levels of those who summon him are. It's downplayed in the anime, however, where he's drawn in the same quality as everyone else, but still has a more realistic-looking face.
- Bait the Dog: Initially seems to be a cutesy character until he reveals his true nature as psychotic, arrogant sadist.
- Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Has the honor of being one of the very few antagonists who doesn't get brutally attacked, likely due to her just being a little girl. The worst things that happen to her are Bo-bobo putting her in a trash bin and Don Patch knocking her into a hole in the ground. Keep in mind the latter scene was changed to her stumbling into the hole on her own in the anime.
- I Know Madden Kombat: He's a soccer player.
The Three Major Civilizations
- Terrible Trio: Fight as a three man group, in fact, are the originators of the formula in the series that had been one on one fights up till that moment.
- Portal Door: His mouth acts a literal portal door to OVER's Castle.
The guard of OVER's Castle.
- Expy: The dub makes him sound like the actual Forest Gump.
Holy Guacamole Land (Hallelujah Land)
Garbel the Fresh-Blooded (Garbel of Manicura)
The first of the Hell Killers, he faces off against Bobobo, Jelly Jiggler and the others.
- Femme Fatalons: A male example. He manipulates his nails as long ranged weapons.
The second of the Hell Killers, he faces off against Don Patch.
The Three Prison-Murderer Brothers (The Terrible Triplets)
The last of the Hell Killers, a trio of brothers that face off against Bobobo's party.
- Bishōnen: Beep is secretly this underneath his helmet.
- Butt-Monkey: Beep continuously gets punished by Bo-bobo's Bo-bobo Roulette technique.
- Good Old Fisticuffs: This is Haoh's entire fighting style.
- Twincest: Beep and Megafan perform a move called "Brotherly Love Energy Recovery", which apparently involves the two of them kissing, but Bo-bobo and Don Patch tickle them before they can actually do it. The original US broadcast cuts before the two start leaning in.
- Strong Family Resemblance: Inverted. Beep and Megafan are both blonde-haired humans, but Haoh is a short green cartoonish oni-type creature with similar body proportions to Don Patch.
An assassin sent by Halekulani to defeat Bobobo.
- Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: Spends most of his fight being a complete punching bag, even worse for him it's implied he wouldn't have much better chance if the heroes weren't reduced to children.
- Obviously Evil: He has horns, and oh yeah, the kanji for "Enemy" is written on his forehead. Gasser sees right through him when he tries to act like the team's friend.
- Would Hurt a Child: What'd you expect of a Hair Hunter that hangs around an area that turns everyone but him into kids?
- Your Worst Nightmare: Has the ability to bring his opponents nightmares to life, unfortunately for him, this is useless against the heroes.
- My Death Is Only The Beginning: In his defeat, he tells Bobobo that the other Cyber Knights will not be so easy to defeat before dying.
- Jet Pack: utilizes this as part of his means to keep afloat and his means of combat. He can even utilize a transformation to make him resemble a jet more.
Shibito (Bad Bard)
The fifth of the Cyber Knights to be introduced and one of the only three with Super Fists. He faces a combination of Beauty, Don Patch, Jelly Jiggler and Torpedo Girl.

The second to last Cyber Knight Bobobo and the others face off against.

- Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: He absolutely fails to do anything resembling damage to Bobobo and Softon.
- The Unfought: Downplayed. In spite of being the one to bring Gasser to Giga, Bobobo never faces him in combat, but Wan ends up being defeated by Hatenko.
- Affably Evil: Compared to his colleagues, he's a essentially doing his job to protect Cyber City as the sole protector of the power core for the center city and dealing with intruders. He is genuinely respectful to Soften, even aiding him to get stronger after losing to Denbo and is overall well-mannered.
- No-Nonsense Nemesis: J doesn't gloat or waste time like his colleagues, going straight for the kill with trickery and overwhelming force. He immediately tries to avoid a confrontation with Bobopatch by replacing Don Patch with Dengakuman for a potentially weaker fusion and attacks Denbo anyway, reasoning she's the fusion of two guys anyway.
- Punch-Clock Villain: Compared to his colleagues and his boss, that are sadistic jerks who torment others for their own amusement, J's only concern is maintaining the core of Cyber City and defeating the intruders. While he does fight with trickery, it's more pragmatic than outright sadistic.
- Worthy Opponent: Finds Soften to be this.
- Would Not Hit a Girl: Downplayed and Zigzagged. He claims this when he's about to attack Denbo, only to attack her anyway with the rationalization she's a fusion of two guys anyway. He does however does not attack Beauty.
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: Initially appearing as a joke, he soon reveals his expert combat skills.
- HeelFace Turn: He aids the heroes against the Shadow Chrome Dome Empire in the Playoffs.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Is easily defeated by Bobobo's nose hairs.
- Sadist: It's heavily implied in addition to wanting to sell it on the black market that he does it for his own sick amusement.
- Shout-Out: He looks very much like a LEGO mini-figure.
- The Worf Effect: He manages to easily defeat Gasser, but loses easily to Bobobo demonstrates his alternative Fist to defeat him, demonstrating the lack of experience of the former's over-reliance on his singular fist and the latter's versatile fighting techniques and greater experience.
- Weak, but Skilled: He doesn't wield a Fist and can only flail his arms to attack. That said, he never lets up on it when fighting Gasser, never giving him a chance to attack. And he's surprisingly quick on his feet, to the point where Gasser never gets a single hit in before Bo-bobo intervenes.
- Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Subverted. Don Patch punches her so hard that blood spews out her mouth like a geyser and she flies right into the wall of a nearby house.
- Expy: She's the Zarbon to Kitty-Poo's Frieza.
- Panty Shot: In the manga. It's a bit of a Fan Disservice, though, considering it happens as Don Patch punches her and blood's spewing out of her mouth.
- Killed Off for Real: Bo-bobo fastens shackles with steel balls hanging of of them to his wrists and ankles, then kicks him off the airplane they were fighting on top of. Granted, he could just use his Fist of Parachutes to land safely. But, unless he didn't...
- Assassin Out Classin: He's officially the leader of the Assassination group of the Chrome Dome Empire.
- Canon Foreigner: Originally appeared in 9-Kyoku Senshi Gyagu Yūgō, one of the games on the GBA, with his true form being the game's True Final Boss.
- Giant Space Flea from Nowhere: He's a high-ranking member of the empire, but since his existence was never properly established prior to it, he quite literally comes out of nowhere to fight Bo-bobo in the Bald Bowl.
- No Name Given: His human form went unnamed in the English dub for some reason.
- One-Winged Angel: Subverted. Bo-bobo and the gang make very quick work of him after he transforms into Samba Man.
- It's played straight in 9-Kyoku Senshi Gyagu Yūgō, however, where Samba Man is genuinely hard to take down.
- Orcus on His Throne: More so than Baldly Bald IV, who's at least seen unleashing most of the groups Bo-bobo fights on him. Yami Yasha's apparently the most powerful Hair Hunter the Chrome Dome Empire's got that isn't a Block leader or a Heavenly King, yet did nothing to stop Bo-bobo until the Bald Bowl. Keep in mind by then, Bo-bobo and company's torn through most of the Blocks, all four of the Heavenly Kings' bases of operations, Cyber City and Neo Hair Hunt Land MAX.
- Surprise Difficulty: Samba Man is very hard to beat in 9-Kyoku Senshi Gyagu Yūgō. Averted in the manga and anime, where he's a total pushover.
- True Final Boss: Samba Man was this for 9-Kyoku Senshi Gyagu Yūgō.
- What, Exactly, Is His Job?: The subtitle in his debut in the manga is "Chrome Dome Empire's Highest Official", but it's unclear where exactly that puts him in the empire's hierarchy, as he's neither a Block leader nor a Heavenly King. If anything, he's either above or around the same level as Telu, the supreme commander of the Hair Hunt troops.
- Fate Worse than Death: Gets turned into a coin by Halekulani.
- And Now For Something Completely Different: She prefers to use her Fist of Ramen to challenge her opponents to a ramen eating contest instead of using it to battle them. Because of this, she's one of the very few Hair Hunters whom Bo-bobo never fights traditionally, and he never attacks her randomly like he does most of the other antagonists.
- Beauty Is Never Tarnished: She's the only antagonist in the first series besides Ruby to go completely unscathed when encountering Bo-bobo, as she challenges him to a ramen eating contest instead of a battle.
- Expy: Of Sailor Moon, mainly her Odango Hair and the various poses she strikes.
- Sailor Senshi Send-Up: Has Odango Hair and tends to strike Sailor Moon-esque poses.
Former Chrome Dome Empire
- Bare Your Midriff: Rem, Lambada, and Jeda, the latter being male examples.
- Badass Army This entire generation of soldiers is described as such, having conquered almost all the known world in four days.
- Older Than They Look: They've been put in cryogenic sleep chambers for 100 years so however old they appear to be, add 100 years to that.
- Arc Villain: Of the Former Hair Hunters arc, uniquely, he manages to ascend into the Big Bad role for the Time Skip by finally obtaining the Hair Ball from Bibibi.
- Always a Bigger Fish: Much, much worse than Baldy Bald IV and Hydrate
- Big Bad: Of the Former Hair Hunters arc and Shinsetsu.
- Clipped-Wing Angel: Played with, His absorption of Bobobo and Don Patch does give him the powers he craved....., but made him change into a pink Cartoon Creature, which was not his intention. Subverted with his later attempt with Bibibi that results in a far less humiliating form.
- Cherry Tapping: Ultimately defeated by Bo-bobo giving him a light chop to the armpit in Shinsetsu, after the standard arc-ending montage attack.
- Fantastic Racism: Considers humans nothing but scum.
- Hollywood Cyborg: As it turns out, he's truly some sort of android with a human exterior, revealed when he was injured for the first time as part of a Robotic Reveal and later briefly as his skin peels off to reveal his robotic form just before His Clipped-Wing Angel.
- Ignored Epiphany: After Bobobo goes to get efforts to show a technique to show him the wonders of humanity, he still decides to Take Over the World and make it worse than before.
- Kick The Son Of The Bitch: Does this to Bibibi, who started the entire current generation of the Hair Hunt operations that wiped out his original civilization, temporally murdered his own family and had been a Big Brother Bully even prior to this. He takes his Hair Ball, temporarily killing him.
- Kick the Dog: He has a roulette attack just to target Bobobo's friends one by one until they were destroyed.
- Kick Them While They Are Down: kills Bi-bibi and steals his Hair Ball after Bo-bobo has defeated him, paving the way for his rise to power and the sequel series.
- Knight of Cerebus: A misanthropic megalomanic whose first action against Bobobo is to immediately try and kill him, and decided to slowly kill off his friends once he finds out that he is a Living Macguffin. Not something you'd expect from odd series like this
- Lack of Empathy: When confronted by Bobobo after pushing his Berserk Button"Do you think I care?"
- Leitmotif: A subtle, but noticeable organ is played twice in his fight during his dark moments.
- Not Even Human: Upon absorbing the Hair Ball in the first fight with him, he reveals his true form to be a robotic demonic being.
- Our Robots Are Non Standard: Being an android and all.
- Robotic Reveal: The reason why we know he's one.
- No-Nonsense Nemesis: Has little to no quirks compared to his underlings and his reaction to any comedy is to ignore and continue to try to kill someone.
- Order Versus Chaos: seeks an entirely ordered world where those who do not obey his every command are dead.
- Person of Mass Destruction: In his introduction, he throws a few knives off into the distance. The result is something ripped right out of Dragon Ball.
- Sealed Evil in a Can: He rest for 100 years prior to his awakening.
- Superpower Lottery: Notably, he's the only main villain to not have just one, but two Super Fists, Red Magic that deals with physical stage magic based attacks and Blue Magic that focuses on mental degradation based attacks.
- Ungrateful Bastard: A very notable example considering most of the villains become allies at this point Despite Bobobo sparing his life, he decides to screw everyone over by taking Bibibi's Hair Ball and reestablishing his empire for the Shinsetsu Time Skip series.
- Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: He's a cybernetic, misanthropic megalomaniac with no hesitation in committing atrocities in order to maintain his authority. He stands out since most of the series involves light-hearted yet bizarre comedy, and is the sole reason after getting the Hair Ball that he manages to make the series Darker and Edgier with his new abilities.

- Furry Reminder: A variant (as he's not an animal) but he is a vampire and will suck blood and attack with biting. Of course, while he can suck blood, he can't do that with stuff that isn't blood, as he found out with Jiggler (who's made of jelly)
