Voiced by: Taiki Matsuno (JP), Terrence Stone (EN), Luis Vicente Ivars (Spain)

  • 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.

  • Big Bad: till Hydrate forces him out of power.
    • Big Bad Wannabe: he's merely a puppet figure for Bibibi of the first series.
    • Non-Action Big Bad: Despite being a Hollywood Cyborg, he displays no fighting abilities at all.
      • The fact that he runs ungracefully from his throne once Hydrate takes over only establishes this point.
  • 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.

  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: He reliance on others to his work for him ultimately cost him his right to the throne.
  • 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.
  • Pointy Ears: Has them along with sharp teeth.
  • Puppet King: Bibibi's statement outright state this, which makes since in hindsight.
  • 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 someone 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.
  • The Unfought: Despite being the Big Bad of the series for several arcs, he flees his empire once Hydrate takes over.

    In General 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/The_Four_Heavenly_Kings_2113.PNG

    Gunkan/Captain Battleship 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Captain_Battleship_4409.PNG
Voiced by: Ryuzaburo Otomo (JP), Takashi Nagasako (PS2 game), Paul St. Peter (EN)

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.


    Purupu/Kittypoo 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/412px-Purupu_2162.PNG
Voiced by: Ryusei Nakao (JP), Liam O'Brien (EN)

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


    OVER 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Over_6170.PNG
OVER: Tomokazu Sugita (JP), Liam O'Brien (EN)
Torpedo Girl: Hiromi Nishikawa (JP), Melodee Spevack (EN), Mabel López (Spain)

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.


  • Arch-Enemy: Jelly Jiggler is this to him.
  • Ax-Crazy: The craziest, 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...
  • 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.
  • 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.

    Halekulani 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/BoBoBo_Halekulani_2801.JPG
Voiced by: Shin-ichiro Miki (JP), Joe Cappelletti (EN), Luis Bajo (Spain)

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 Heel–Face 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.
  • 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.

Hair Hunters

    In General 

Tropes Associated With The Hair Hunt

    Teru 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/180px-Telu_1554.PNG
Voiced by: Masaya Onosaka (JP)

  • Minor Major Character: He's the head commander of the commanders, supposedly stronger than Jiggler, but never appears after the first chapter/episode.
  • Momma's Boy: He still lives with his mother, much to his lower officers' surprise
  • The Un Fought: Bobobo never fights or meets him, going instead straight for the Big 4 after Jelly Jiggler's defeat.

    Katsu 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Katsu_6884.PNG
Voiced By: Richard Cansino (EN), Luis Vicente Ivars (Spain)
  • Almighty Janitor: Despite only being the Vice-Leader of A Block, he is incredibly powerful. 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.

    Ukikki/ 6 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/110px-Six_6698.PNG

    Gunkan's Five Great Warriors/The Battleship Five Quartet 

  • 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.
  • Evil Former Friend: One of the members is Loincloth Lloyd, who was Gasser's friend who he fought alongside while defending their home city.
  • 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.


Former Chrome Dome Empire

    In General 

    Tsuru Tsurulina III/Czar Baldy Bald III 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Czar_Baldy_Bald_the_Third_5723.jpg
Voiced by: Ryotaro Okiayu (JP), David Lodge (EN), Salvador Serrano (Spain)

  • 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 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.
  • No-Nonsense Nemesis: 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    Hanpen/General Lee Fishcake 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hanpen.png
Voiced by: Hiroaki Miura (JP), Steve Kramer (EN), Rais David Báscones (Spain, first apparitions), Juan Navarro (Spain, rest of the series)


  • A Father to His Men: He certainly treats his allies with more respect than the main hero.
  • Blood Knight: Although he was confident he was superior and later fights for his comrades, Hanpen likes a good fight.
  • The Dragon: To the Third.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After his defeat, he sides with Bobobo and the gang during the Hair Hunt Tournament.
  • Redemption Demotion: Not as bad as Jelly Jiggler, but he's much less useful as a hero than he was as a villain.
  • Social Darwinist: He harks on about the worthiness of his opponents.

    Lambada 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lambada.png

  • Bare Your Midriff: She only wears a bra-like halter top.
  • Defeat Equals Friendship: As with a lot of Bobobo's foes, she turns good after being defeated.
  • Heavy Sleeper: She struggles to start her battle because she can't stop falling asleep. Even in mid battle or MID-AIR she'll fall asleep.
    Rem: Just five more minutes...
  • Heel–Face Turn: The entire latter half of Bobobo's battle with her involves melting her heart and turning her good.
  • Meaningful Name: As in Rapid Eye Movement, a stage of sleeping.
  • Mind Screw: Some of her back story, being that she's the rather human offspring of two beds

    Combat Blues/Major Minor 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/combat_blues.png
Voiced by: Eiji Takemoto (JP), Michael Sorich (EN)


  • Covert Pervert: His two subordinates are two girls in swimsuits, and he's able to get back up if they cheer him on.

    Ujikin TOKIO/Not Nice Cream 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/424px-Ujikin_TOKIO_9547.jpg
Voiced by: Kenji Hamada (JP), Liam O'Brien (EN), Jorge Saudinós (Spain)


    Swimsuit Girl and Swimsuit Gal 
The subordinates of Major Minor, they are, as their names imply, a pair of girls wearing swimsuits.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Though they weren't exactly evil to begin with, they're convinced by Bobobo to be good, without any hesitation from them.
  • Nice Girl: Both of them. Even when they work under Major Minor, they don't actually do anything to harm the heroes, they just play with each other in the pool and cheer on Major Minor when he needs their support. Bobobo convinces them to abandon the Major and fight for good extremely easily.

Voiced by: Shigeru Chiba (JP), Kirk Thornton (EN), Juan Navarro (Spain)


    Halon Oni/Maloney Oni 

    The Three Sacks 

    Crimson 

    LOVE 
  • Dark Action Girl: She's the last and possibly strongest of the Four Heavenly Kings of the Reverse Margarita Empire to be faced.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Her Dark Fist of Sexy revolves around this invoked trope.
  • Hoist by Her Own Petard: When she uses her powers to affect OVER, it annoys which light his one anger orb up (with Jelly Jiggler lighting all the other five in one act!). This results in turning back into Torpedo Girl and since LOVE's Dark Fist can't work on her own gender, this leads to her downfall.
  • Lust: Has a thing for muscles. Much to Over's chargin.
  • One-Winged Angel: Transforms into a large griffin which doesn't have anything to do with her Dark Fist!

    Byakkyo 
  • Co-Dragons: Along with Be-bebe since he's the right-hand man to Hydrate.
  • Enfante Terrible: He was revealed to be this when he killed warriors of the Holy Land Of Babylon as a boy!
  • Evil Genius: Although he shows more of this in his fight.
