The primary antagonists of the series, whom the Rebels mean to liberate the world from.
The empire goes through four different iterations over the course of the franchise: the regular Chrome Dome Empire, which rules the world in the first series; the Former Chrome Empire, which ruled the world a cenutry prior to the beginning of the first series; the Shadow Chrome Dome Empire, which rules the underworld; and the Neo Chrome Dome Empire, which rules the world in Shinsetsu.
The Maruhage/Margarita Empire (The Chrome Dome Empire)
- Ambiguous Situation: Other than the Czar himself, most of the Block commanders, all the generic troops and the countless Cartoon Creatures, all the Hair Hunters sport full heads of hair, despite the fact they're tasked with ridding the world of hair. The fact nobody ever questions this, not even Bo-bobo himself or 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.
- Beware the Silly Ones: It may be a regime chock-full of Cloudcuckoolanders that mean to cut everyone's hair off and use amusement parks for their military bases, but they've still got no qualms ransacking entire villages and wreaking general havoc across the world.
- Early Installment Weirdness: The justification for Hair Hunters who've still got hair being them just wearing wigs is more or less forgotten come the Pomade Ring arc.
- Hypocrite: The bulk of the soldiers of an empire that wants to rid the world of hair... have hair themselves. And 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's this for the Big Four, the Czar and his strongest aides.
- Stupid Evil: A good deal of the soldiers that make up this empire are as dumb as dirt. It makes you wonder how they were able to take over the world, they're so incompetent. And then there's their MO in general: they want to cut everyone's hair off, yet never take into consideration that, unless they outright destroy the folicles of their victims, the hair of every person they shave would just grow back.
- 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.
- Big Bad Wannabe: he's merely a puppet figure for Bibibi of the first series.
- 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!
- 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.
- 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.
Tsuru Tsurulina IV's Aides
- 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 the Rebels once Hydrate took over.
- What, Exactly, Is Her Job?: Effectively the czarina of the empire, yet never does anything in the series proper and, like Baldy Bald IV, flees when Hydrate appears.
- 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.
- The Dragon: Constantly seen with the emperor and gives the rules about a tournament to decide the next 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.
- Hate Sink: He's a sadistic man turning Fist users into warped clay sculptures by physically distorting them into such shapes with his powers, including Gasser at one point with fiendish glee. He runs Cyber City a prison facility for people, which consists of balding and tormenting people with unique public executions/tortures on live television for his own amusement. On top of this, he's an insufferable Smug Super with Smug Snake undertones, who is rude to everyone including his own boss that allows his activities to continue. Prominent examples being when he tells the heroes he wasn't using a Super Fist as a sign of mocking and later tries to destroy Gasser's statue out of spite. And unlike previous major villains, there is no Freudian Excuse implied or explicit, that implies he wasn't anything other than an unpleasant person from the start. And unlike OVER or Halekulani, he doesn't do HeelFace Turn, fully intending to get revenge on Bobobo for his actions.
- Jerkass: He is extremely unpleasant with a clear disrespect to everyone, including his superior that's allowing his actions to continue. He enjoys messing with others for his own amusement like lying about using Super Fist techniques for the first half of the fight just to see their reactions.
- 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: He has an insufferable ego, but it is backed up by powerful abilities that make him ranked high enough for him to be considered the right hand man of the Czar. To a point that he actually pretends that one attack was a Super Fist, only to reveal it wasn't, just to cement his superiority.
- Sonic Stunner: Giga Sound, which summons giant speakers to immobilize the enemy.
- Troll: He has a moment where he reveals to Bobobo and the others that he was only pretending to use his Super Fist in the first half of the fight, just for personal amusement.
- Villainous Breakdown: He starts off smug and arrogant, but gradually the continued resistance Bobobo and the others put on him, get him angry and by the time he's Super Giga, he's completely insane.
- 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 Strongest Hair Hunter
He wields the Super Fist of the Skull, which allows him to manipulate skulls and other such bones, and even reconstruct and reanimate skeletons to fight for him. Like OVER before him, he transforms into something outlandish in a last-ditch effort defeat Bo-bobo.
In this case, it's Sambaman, a creature who loves to sing and dance, and is so strange that even Don Patch can't stand him.
- Always a Bigger Fish: The strongest Hair Hunter the empire's got, to the point where it's literally his title.
- Canon Foreigner: Originally appeared in 9-Kyoku Senshi Gyagu Yūgō, one of the games on the GBA, where he's its True Final Boss.
- Defeat Means Friendship: Parodied. When he's defeated as Sambaman, he outright decides to defect from the empire and join the Rebels. Bo-bobo responds by strapping him to a rocket and launching him into space.
- Disc-One Final Boss: With Baldy Bald IV vanishing before they could face him, the Dark Yaksha's the last Hair Hunter from the Chrome Dome Empire the Rebels fight, making him the effective final boss in regards to the rebellion against the empire. But once the Rebels beat him, the Shadow Chrome Dome Empire start making their move...
- Giant Space Flea from Nowhere: He's the most powerful Hair Hunter of all, but since his existence was never established prior to the Bald Bowl, he just... appears. It's exaggerated in the anime's English dub, where he's the only prominant Hair Hunter whose name and title go unrevealed.
- Killed Off for Real: Bo-bobo straps him to a rocket and shoots him into space. He's never seen or heard from again, not even in Shinsetsu, so he likely died from lack of oxygen after exiting the Earth's atmosphere.
- No Name Given: The Yaksha has no name or title whatsoever in the English dub.
- No-Nonsense Nemesis: Takes himself very seriously and is a genuine force to be reckoned with. That is, until he transforms into Sambaman...
- One-Winged Angel: Subverted. Bo-bobo and the gang make very quick work of him after he transforms into Sambaman.
- True Final Boss: Of 9-Kyoku Senshi Gyagu Yūgō.
- World's Strongest Man: The most powerful solider of the most powerful sovereign state in the world. That is, until the Rebels go to the Hair Kingdom and find out who the true mastermind behind the Hair Hunt is.
The Four Heavenly Kings (The Big Four)
- 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.
- Ax-Crazy: Each one of the Big Four is psychotically unstable in their own unique way. Gunkan/Captain Battleship is an incomprehensible Cloud Cuckoo Lander at times, Kitty-Poo is a Sadist with a Faux Affably Evil nature, OVER is unapologetically violent as well as bloodthirsty and Halekulani hides his insanity with a composed facade, but will go into Madness Mantra and Blank White Eyes when pushed to a corner.
- 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.
He fights with the "Garyū Hanage Jaken" (Self-Taught Fist of the Nose Hair).
- 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 know he had a sibling working for the New Hair Kingdom until Goisu 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 more traditional Shōnen elements 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.
- 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).
- Expy: Not as blatant as Bobobo's, but in terms of characterization and role is partially based on Shin with a little bit of Raoh throw-in, having the traits of being the rival who turned to the evil of the former while having the ambition and resentment of being passed over from the latter.
- 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 nose-hair to attack his enemies. Even his ducktail at one point
- The Resenter: Despite 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 mechas 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 since he 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.
- Ax-Crazy: It's not as pronounced as the other members of the Big 4 due to his Faux Affably Evil nature, but he's a Sadist that likes to kill others with intense relish.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Ends up being defeated the quickest of any of the Big Four (or any of the villains supposedly) when Don Patch does a Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs on him.
- 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. His subordinates' names are meant to Parody the Edible Theme Naming of that series, as well. They're also both voiced by Ryusei Nakao.
- Faux Affably Evil: Like the character he was inspired by, he's very formal and polite, hiding the fact that he's really an unapologetic Sadist.
- Hellish Pupils: His normally blue-green sparkly eyes become Yellow Eyes of Sneakiness when he shows his true nature.
- Informed Ability: He and his henchman were supposedly stronger than Gunkan but all three were curb-stomped by Don Patch of all people, their strengths are further supported by Hatenko, Don Patch, and Gasser's statements
- 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 overhyping himself.
- Villain of the Week: Ultimately this is what his and his two minions' role are, being the villains that are defeated in the same episode he's introduced in like early villains, specificially for the intermediary portion before the more significant Z-Block, Hajike/Wiggin, and Over's Castle Arcs- with the Evil Blood Mansion arc. This is especially jarring as Gunkan/Captain Battleship before him as well as OVER and Halekulani after him manage to be have entire arcs dedicated to defeating them in contrast.
- The Worf Effect: His easy defeat establishes Don Patch as being far more skilled than his initial status as a Gag Character implied.
- Yellow Eyes of Sneakiness: His normal aquamarine sparkle eyes become yellow irises with slits when he's ready for the kill.
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.
He wields the "Gokuaku Zanketsu Shinken" (True Fist of Horrible, Bloody Murder), or the "Super Fist of the Ultimately Evil Sword", which amounts to him just hacking and slashing at his opponents with his scissors.
- 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.
- Ambiguous Situation: While it's later revealed that Torpedo Girl is a daughter of Landmine Dandy, a mentor of Hydrate, how she came up with the OVER identity is never explained.
- 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 and all of his attacks are melee based In both forms.
- Catchphrase: Torpedo Girl's I'm a Torpedo to the point her Annoying Laugh is her own name. It's even lampshaded by Bobobo that it gets irritating very fast.
- Chekhov's Gunman: It's later revealed she was the daughter of the mentor to Hydrate, the Arc Villain of the Shadow Chrome Dome Empire during the current generation's foundation.
- The Comically Serious: His Ax-Crazy personality remains unflappable throughout all of his appearances even with all of the antics on display.
- Torpedo Girl parodies this as she strikes any signs of stupidity with extreme prejudice, but has shown to be Not So Above It All due to having her own eccentricities.
- Edible Theme Naming: All his Super Fist techniques are named after fruits. Word of God states he names them after fruits because he thinks the names of fruits are cool.
- Gender Bender: OVER's transformation turns him into a very female Torpedo Girl. Or rather, Torpedo Girl typically stays in the very male OVER form.
- 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.
- No-Nonsense Nemesis: OVER isn't into dragging out the fight when a person isn't worthy of fighting or indulging in the idiocies of the main cast, preferring to kill them at any opportunity when he was the Arc Villain.
- Parodied as Torpedo Girl. While she does attack the main cast for any sign of eccentric traits. She herself has weird character tics due to having a Wiggin for a father.
- Not So Above It All: As Torpedo Girl, while she attempts to be a No-Nonsense Nemesis, she has eccentric tendencies like her I'm a Torpedo, her excessive crush on Soften amongst other things. Justified in that it's implied she she got it from her father, Landmine Dandy, a Wiggin Specialist.
- 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.
- Overly Long Name: The name of his Super Fist, from its Japanese name (Gokuaku Zanketsu Shinken), to its translation (True Fist of Horrible, Bloody Murder), to its dub name (Super Fist of the Ultimately Evil Sword).
- 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.
- Something Person: As Torpedo Girl.
- 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.
- Unskilled, but Strong: His Super Fist amounts to little more than him swinging his scissors wildly at his opponent. That said, he's puts up quite the fight and all his attacks look very painful.
- Villainous Breakdown: As Torpedo Girl, she gradually stops her odd, feminine personality schtick and starts acting brutish and aggressive like OVER and then resorts to angry threats by the time she's defeated.
- Walking Spoiler: OVER having a true form called Torpedo Girl, who ends up being a very vital character in the backstory to the current foundation of the Chrome Dome Empire's current generation.
- White Hair, Black Heart: Has a long mane of white hair.
- The Worf Effect: He hunts down Captain Battleship and Kitty-Poo after the Rebels are finished with them. As punishment for failing to defeat the Rebels, OVER beats them to a pulp and cuts off their hair (in Kitty-Poo's case, his antenna). The first time the Rebels lay eyes on OVER, he's licking his scissors while Battleship and Kitty-Poo are on the floor, unconscious and covered in blood.
- You Are What You Hate: In spite of being an Idiot Killer that attacks anyone showing intense idiocy or being otherwise Too Dumb to Live; Torpedo Girl has displayed her own eccentricities at times due to having a Wiggin Specialist for a father.
- 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 get 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.
He weilds the Super Fist of Gorgeousness, allowing him to manipulate money.
- 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.
- Ax-Crazy: He usually hides it with a calm and composed nature, but when pushed to a corner, he reveals to be a money obsessed lunatic complete with Blank White Eyes.
- 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.
- Though supplementary materials it's revealed later on he had to live a hard life due to being poor and needing to steal to survive. And it is implied through this that his extreme obsession with money was so he wouldn't be poor again.

- 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.

- You Gotta Have Bluehair: Green hair. Green is the color of dollars.
- You Have Failed Me: Has a Mook turn into a coin for this.
- Minor Major Character: He's the head commander of the Block leaders and is 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.
- Only Known By His Nickname: His real name, according to his mother, is "Tsutomu". He hates being called that.
- The Un Fought: Bo-bobo never fights or meets him, as he goes straight for the Big 4 after taking down Jiggler.
- The Unfought: He never fights Bobobo directly, having been taken out offscreen by Suzu.
The commander of C-Block, who resides on the top floor of C-Block's Aitsuhage Tower.
- 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.
- Killed Off for Real: Wall Man swallows him up. Notable because he's one of the very few villains to outright die.
- The Worf Effect: Twice, he loses easily to Gasser in his introductory fight, and is then easily assimilated by Wall-Man.
- Blessed with Suck: Averted. Unlike his third cousin, he's got the ability to turn his petrificaiton powers on and off.
- Butt-Monkey: In addition to being defeated by Bobobo easily, the latter completely screws up his date by making him look bad.
- Early Installment Weirdness: He and the troops he commands are some of Bo-bobo's earliest opponents, and they've got the distinction of being the only Hair Hunter group with a sensible justification for why they've still got hair: they're all wearing wigs.
- 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.
- Brought to You by the Letter "S": He's got an M-shaped opening in the middle of his bangs.
- Gonk: Has a curved oval shaped head with no nose and a perpetual duckface expression.
- Non-Standard Character Design: He has a much more simpler and laidback design compared to the more wild and frenzied designs of the cast.
- A Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Read: When trying to read the mind of Bobobo, he the latter's plan to cell nose keychains to be a terrible idea and investment.
- Telepathy: His main power is being able to read minds.
- 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 Bo-bobo, who demonstrates his alternative Fist to defeat him. It's meant to show Gasser's inexperience and overreliance on his Super Fist, and Bo-bobo's greater experience and versatility in combat.
- Weak, but Skilled: He doesn't have a Super Fist and can only flail his arms to attack. That said, he never lets up on it and is surprisingly quick on his feet, to the point where Gasser never gets a single hit in before Bo-bobo intervenes.
- Ambiguously Human: Has much pinker skin as well as longer ears than a human, but is never directly confirmed to be non-human.
- Expy: Of Piccolo. He even fires his Hairloss Beam the same way Piccolo fires his Special Beam Cannon.
- No Ontological Inertia: Subverted. Bo-bobo defeating him doesn't reverse the effects of his Hairloss Beam, so Beauty (and Don Patch) are still doomed to lose their hair within 10 hours. Thus, they've no choice but to go to C-Block and get Geha to reverse the effects for them.
- Brought to You by the Letter "S": Has a blue "1" emblazoned on his forehead, to signify he's the tower's first guardian.
- Honor Before Reason: When Bo-bobo decides to use the elevator, he implores Bobobo to use the stairs instead for this reason.
- Killed Off for Real: In the manga, where Don Patch throws a grenade in the elevator, blowing Tesuikatsu to bits. In the anime, he's just blown against a wall, knocking him unconscious.
- Bad Boss: He apparently detests Keseran Pasera, a paramecia that works for him, and tries to fire them for little to no reason. This is more than enough for him to earn Bobobo's wrath.
Usa-chan the Rabbit (Vicious Velvet the Rabbit)
- Adapted Out: Of the original broadcast dub.
- Harmless Villain: Due to being a powerless toy rabbit that does nothing but trash-talk. Beauty ties it ears into a knot, making it the only opponent Beauty "defeats".
- Riddle for the Ages: Arguably the biggest one in the franchise. One can only imagine how (let alone why) a stuffed animal can work for an evil empire.
- Affably Evil: Engages in polite chat with Bobobo in the Ferris wheel while they are riding it.
- Large Ham: Makes loud announcements on the ride.
- Ambiguously Gay: There's really no other reason why he'd be interested in "Patchimi", considering "she's" just Don Patch, who's clearly male, pretending to be female. Though it can be argued he fell for Don Patch's guise and just thought he was a girl (and still thinks he is, even without his makeup).
- FaceHeel Turn: He went from a nice U to a manipulative 6.
- You Are Number 6: Literally transformed from a U to a 6 when he became a Hair Hunter.
- Noodle Incident: His battle with the rebels. We just see him defeated but we don't see the battle itself.
- Defector from Decadence: Implied to be a former Hair Hunter and a member of A-Block and decided to turn on his masters some time in the past.
The deputy commander of A-Block, who likes taking his opponents' possessions after defeating them as "trophies". Though he doesn't have a Super Fist, he makes up for it with his "Playback-Vac", sentient faces that appear on his body and absorb any attack coming at him.
- Almighty Janitor: Despite only being A-Block's deputy commander, he's incredibly powerful, nearly killing Gasser and being a match to Bo-bobo when they fought. He was only beaten when an unrestrained Gasser managed to overload him. During the Bald Bowl, he was worthy of holding a gold medal and fought alongside the Dark Yaksha a.k.a. the Hair Hunters' commander-in-chief. To put it in perspective, Giga, The Dragon of Tsuru Tsurulina IV himself, only had a silver medal. But in the end, he still couldn't defeat Jelly Jiggler, his former boss, and loses to him after getting hit with one attack.
- Bald of Awesome: The only member of the empire that's bald and is a genuine badass other than Baldy Bald IV himself (and even he's not that badass, considering he flees the moment his brother appears).
- Bald of Evil: One of the very few Hair Hunters that's bald and is genuinely evil.
- Curb-Stomp Battle : From his former superior, Jelly Jiggler, during the Bald Bowl.
- 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-Nonsense Nemesis: Besides the weird way his power manifests on his body, Katsu's one of the very few Hair Hunters that doesn't mess around. He's a bloodthirsty solider of an evil empire through and through, and if he hadn't taken Gasser's collar off, the Rebels' journey likely would've ended right there.
- No-Sell: His Playback-Vac is this to any one who wields a Super Fist. It can absorb any and all Super Fist techniques 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: The deputy commander of A-Block, which Jiggler commanded before defecting from the empire to join the Rebels.
- The Star Scream: Has no problem trying to kill Jiggler in the Bald Bowl.
The Pomade Ring
- 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.
Fundoshitarō (Loincloth Lloyd)
- Affably Evil: When Gasser finds out he's set to fight his former ally, Loincloth Lloyd reveals his new allegiance to the Battleship Five Quartet as if it was just a casual conversation.
- 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.
- Pyrrhic Victory: Wins against Gasser, but is so surprised at his victory his loincloth falls off. Completely humiliated, he vanished for the rest of the series and didn't appear until a new one rolled around.
- Does This Remind You of Anything?: Bobobo trying to lift up Calendar's pages is treated like he's trying to lift up a girl's skirt, complete with Bobobo making some lecherous faces. Meanwhile, Calendar reacts to being exposed like he's been Defiled Forever.
- Killed Off for Real: Was killed after losing all of his calendar pages.
- Spared by the Adaptation: While he dies in the original, the dub instead changes him to just falling unconscious, with June 7th stating he's going to hibernate for the next year.
- 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.
- The Brute: Easily the largest and toughest-looking of the Battleship Five Quartet.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Delivers an (off-screen) massive one to Don Patch.
- Invincible Villain: Effortlessly decimates Don Patch and, though he never appears again after the Pomade Ring arc, is one of the very few Hair Hunters one of the Rebels fight but never defeat.
- Shout-Out: Looks like he was ripped straight out of Fist of the North Star.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Manages to do this psychologically to Jelly Jiggler by being the food that was more preferable to a dog.
- Inanimate Competitor: Although it was somehow animate when wearing his Battleship Five Quartet costume, once Jelly Jiggler is sent in to fight, it's just nothing but a stick of gum lying on the ground.
- Cats Are Mean: Invoked with his cutesy cat mask.
- Heart Is an Awesome Power: His powers to make those hit by his eye beam into rice-soup obsessed loons might seem like a worthless power at first, but it's actually an effective tactic to make his enemies less willing to fight.
- Octopoid Aliens: Resembles a green triple eye-socket version of one with a dopey looking face.
- Unusually Uninteresting Sight: Aside from a gag played for laughs, no one is that shocked about an alien that's facing the heroes, other than being an enemy- except Beauty. Given the much weirder elements there are in the series, he's relatively normal by comparison.
- The Assimilator: His power is being able to assimilate others into his body and then utilize their Fist Technique.
- Our Monsters Are Weird: He's a white, golden tusked, frill eared, long armed and big bodied creature with a relatively humanoid face.
- You Will Be Assimilated: Does this to Geha and planned to do this to Gasser.
The Evil Blood Mansion (The Evil House of Blood)
- Cartoon Creature: Best described as a reptilian rodent of some sort, but it's less as extreme as cases like Don Patch.
- Evil Genius: Describes himself as the evil scientist in charge of the major developments of the Empire.
- Smug Snake: He's very sure of himself in spite of not being aware of the type of series he's in, and is one of the few traditionally played villains in the show- an egotistical scientist.
- Wrong Genre Savvy: Thinks he's in your typical Shōnen scenario where he's the overconfident yet cunning genius that has the hero in his clutches...up until Bobobo decides to remind him the wacky, irrelevance of the show.
- Bald of Evil: As a standard Hair Hunt Trooper, it's a given. He's a manipulative man who distracts Bobobo so he can attack his friends in the midst of the distraction.
- Evil All Along: He initially seems to be an innocuous game show host before revealing himself to be a manipulative Hair Hunter that wanted Bobobo out of the way so he could take out the weaker members of the group.
- Killed Off for Real: When Bobobo from an Alternate Universe Kinda Like His Alter Ego turns into a dragon while still instead of Radio Man, the latter is expectedly killed when the former bursts out of him, making him one of the few confirmed permanent deaths on the enemies' side.
- No Indoor Voice: He never stops shouting.Radio Man: I'M LOUD!
- Non-Indicative Name: Radio Man is a giant television and not a radio.
- Harmless Villain: All of them are very weak in spite of their initially intimidating appearance, pathetically unable to pull in most of the group and only by bribing Don Patch that they manage to get him in.
- Art Shift: When Bobobo's alternate self turns into a dragon, one of the chef's faces goes more realistic as he stares in awe of the dragon's might.
- Nonstandard Character Design: In their true forms, they look like cartoonish caricatures of chefs with small beady eyes widely spaced from each other, bulbous noses and no visible mouths.
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: Double-Subverted. First they're actually the strongest base soldiers of the Chrome Dome Empire...., but reveal themselves to be very cartoony looking chefs whose only power is overcrowding their enemies...which actually proves to be a very useful tactic that nearly suffocates both Gasser and Beauty until Bobobo turns into a dragon to scatter them.
- Alliterative Name: In the dub, he's named Zeb Ziegler, likely to play on the Z-Block name theme.
- The Dragon: Officially, he's this to Dengakuman as the Vice Leader of Z-Block, being the last enemy faced before Dengakuman himself shows up.
- Co-Dragons: He shares this with Silhouette and Hibi, being the official second in command while the latter two are always aiding him. Justified as he had been eaten and it's implied that they occupied the empty slot during the five years that Bobobo had eaten him.
- Determinator: He was apparently eaten alive by Bobobo 5 years ago and managed to not get digested or die until he managed to escape and enact his vengeance on Bobobo.
- Eaten Alive: Apparently, Bobobo ate him alive 5 years ago and only 5 years later when he was hatched from an egg laid by Bobobo's alternate self's dragon form that he manages to escape.
- Noodle Incident: Apparently, Kibahage faced Bobobo five years ago, somehow was eaten by the latter, and later hatched as an egg when Bobobo turned into a dragon that had been Bobobo's alternative self-managing to survive not being digested while in his stomach. Notably, it's this moment that proves too weird for Beauty, who had seen very weird things up to this point to go temporarily insane and goofy like the cast due to how weird even in context this series of events was.
- Almighty Janitor: Whether they're two aides that are near Dengakuman at all times with no official ranking in Z-Block or one/both of them replaced Kibahage during his 5-year absence is never addressed.
- Face Framed in Shadow: An exaggerated example. The male is constantly in shadow when he exposes himself to the heroes rather it being to hide his true identity.
- False Friend: In spite of showering Dengakuman with praise for most of their appearance, they turn on him when he's cornered by Bobobo.
- Sinister Silhouettes: It appears this way at first with the silhouetted man, but later it's revealed that this is just what he looks like.
Hajike Block (Wiggin Block)
- Living In Animate Object: He's strip making machine that's alive.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: They get blown away by the wind before anything else can happen.
- Epic Fail: His attempt as the drinker in the round by making a dynamic entry from the ceiling failed due to not having enough rope to come down. When he gets a do-over, he just reused Don Patch's motorbike entrance leading to Don Patch effortlessly defeating him by simply blowing him away with a cannon.
- Harmless Villain: His entire gimmick is tricking others into being confused by his tea tactics, but outside of it, he has no combat abilities- leading to Don Patch unceremoniously shooting him down with a cannon when he used the same tactic he did as an incoming drinker.
- Sadist: He first appears by punishing a tied-up fellow teacup BDSM style for betrayal via having coffee instead of tea and then cut the rope holding them up before that broke them into pieces.
- Ambiguously Human: Speaks in a 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 someone's Wiggin level's too low, is anyone's guess. It also begs the question of whether more than one of him exists, but it's never discussed or shown what would happen if two or more people with low Wiggin levels touched Wiggin Birds at the same time.
- Frozen Face: He never blinks and his mouth is perpetually agape. Even when Bo-bobo attacks him, his face stays the same.
- Gonk: Drawn very crudely in the manga.
- 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 when he attacks Beauty.
- Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Downplayed, as she's only attacked once, but it's omitted in the anime. In the manga, Don Patch punches her in the head, driving her into the ground and causing blood to spew out her mouth. In the anime, she stumbles backwards into a hole in the ground, which Don Patch pulls her out of.
- The Ditz: Though much tamer compared to the borderline insanity everyone else expresses.
Infinite Kicker (Infinite Shoot)
- Artifact of Power: Averted. Don Patch steals his soccer ball from him under the assumption that it's the source of his power. Infinite Shoot points out that no, it's just a regular soccer ball, and Don Patch gives it back.
- I Know Madden Kombat: He's a soccer player.
- Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: Invoked. He's a blue-haired, red-eyed, fanged teenager that's not only a soldier of an evil empire, but a soccer player, a ninja, and a ping-pong player, as well. He also wields a kusarigama and can conjure fire with his eyes, and his soccer ball isn't actually a ball, but a ball-shaped lunchbox.
The Three Major Civilizations
A trio of goofballs, each of which are named after three of the first four major civilizations in the world: the Kouga Civilization, the leader of the group and the only humanoid; the Indus Civilization, a sentient firecracker; and the Mespotamian Civilization, a pink octopus-like creature.
- Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: The Mespotamian Civilization. He's a giant, pink-colored, human-faced sea creature that can walk on land and works as a ninja for a evil empire.
- 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.
The guard of OVER's Castle.
- Expy: The dub makes him sound like the actual Forrest Gump.
Hallelujah Land (Holy Guacamole Land)
Galubel 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.
- Expy: Of the T-800, if his name wasn't enough of a clue.
- The Stoic: He not only plays himself professional at all times, but is the only known character in the series to never smile.
- Not So Stoic: Don Patch's antics causes him to be exasperated as anyone else.
The Three Prison-Murderer Brothers (The Terrible Triplets/The Super Hell Brothers)
The last of the Hell Killers, a trio of brothers that face off against Bobobo's party. They consist of Haou, a stern, green creature and the eldest brother; Megafan, a man dressed like a pirate who fights with chewing gun and the middle brother; and Beep, a muscular man who wears a mask and is the youngest brother.
- 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.
- Assassin Outclassin': Attempted to assassinate Bobobo in his sleep, only for fight him directly anyway.
- Fate Worse than Death: Halekulani turns him into a coin. After that, he's never seen again. Though, if No Ontological Inertia came into play, he turned back into a human after Bo-bobo defeated Halekulani.
- You Have Failed Me: Halekulani turns him into a coin for his failure 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.
- Surprisingly Realistic Outcome: When the heroes first encounter him, all the blood has rushed to his head from being upside-down for so long.
Shibito (The Bad Bard/The Poet)
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.
- Evil Red Head: Has red colores spiky hair.
- Written Sound Effect: Utilizes them as weapons with the words taking on the powers of their definitions.
The second to last Cyber Knight Bobobo and the others face off against.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: In one of the rare stomps that doesn't involve Insane Troll Logic, Calvinball or Confusion Fu, all of Otto's tactics are met with one-sided demolition of his forces and later a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown for his troubles.
- Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: He absolutely fails to do anything resembling damage to Bobobo and Softon.
- Non-Human Head: He's got a car for a head, and after his fight with Bobobo, his face gets beaten so badly that it gets turned into a plane.
- Fate Worse than Death: Subverted. Hatenko using his "Super Fist of the Key — Eternal Lock" leaves him locked in place as a statue, with Hatenko saying he would stay like that forever, fittingly not returning for the remainder of the series. By Shinsetsu however, he's back to normal and working alongside J attempting to stop the raid on Cyber City by the Neo Maruhage Empire, only to be easily beaten by Porusutoroi and Made a Slave.
- 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.
He manages to easily defeat Soften and proves to be deadly enough for Bobobo to need to fuse, with J attempting to avoid a confrontation with Bobopatch by having Dengakuman replace Don Patch as the fusion component, only to be defeated by Denbo anyway.
- 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.
- Evil Counterpart: To Softon. He's a stern, soft-spoken man with a Non-Human Head and powers beyond the regular events of the series, it's unknown if J's head is either his actual head or a mask like Softon's.
- Non-Human Head: Bobobo agonizes over whether J's head is an onion or a garlic.
- 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.
- One-Letter Name: When asked his name, he builds it up by performing some flashy poses before revealing it to just be J.
- 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.
- The Worf Effect: J is one of the stronger characters the Rebels have ever fought, so when a new enemy needs to be seen as a threat, he tends to get his ass handed to him. This was the case for the New Emperor Playoffs guardian Menma, and the Neo Maruhage member Porusutoroi.
- 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.
- Expy Their designs are heavily inspired by the Storm Troopers of Star Wars.
- Meaningful Name: Biki wears a bikini, while Bathro wears a bathrobe.
- Neutral Females: Don't do anything besides hype up Giga, though they attack the Narrator in the anime when he tries to get them to stop praising Giga (and start praising him instead).
- No Name Given: Their names are never revealed, but Word of God apparently revealed at some point that their names are "Biki" and "Bathro".
- Sadist: Not as prominent as Giga, but their resultant giggling at Gasser's forced transformation imply they also enjoy the suffering and humiliation Giga inflicts on his victims.
Assassination Corps (Enforcer Unit)
- Adaptational Badass: He trades his regular knife for an unnamed technique that allows him to use his hands to release ranged slashes of energy by having his hands do a slashing motion.
- Affably Evil: One of the lesser evil bald members of the Hair Hunters. Killalino puts aside his assassination job to spend his time talking to Takashi/Ducky about his personal issues before resuming his assassination when the conversation was done, having accepted the underwear the way he is. He also takes time off during the Reverse Maruhage Empire Arc, relaxing on a beach
- Bald of Evil: Though has enough heart to have a talk with his duck underwear hat about the latter's uncertainty about his existence, temporally putting his assassination attempt on Bobobo on hold until the issues were resolved.
- Bowlderize: One of the more infamous examples as Killalino had his duck underwear on his crotch- leading to a very unfortunate Gag Penis gag. The anime censorship had him wear the duck on his head, making his perverted nature not as blatant, but still sell him as a weirdo.
- To a lesser extent, his knife technique in the manga is swapped with an ability to make his hands do knife slicing movements to release ranged slashes.
- Breakout Character: To an extent, he manages to make a reappearance during the Blood Mansion Arc- one of the few original arc villain characters outside of Katsu and Jelly Jiggler to make a significant reappearance in the future arcs.
- Punch-Clock Villain: Implied. He and his duck underwear take the time to have a chat about the latter's personal issues, taking time off the hit on Bobobo- resuming when the issues were resolved. He also takes time off on a beach during the Reverse Maruhage Arc.
- Informed Abiltiy: In spite of being the strongest assassins outside of Nunchaku, they never get a chance to show off their abilities due to the fact one of them gets damaged from the landing and leaves the survivor guilt-ridden- unable to fight.
- The Unfought: Bobobo isn't even made aware of their existence due to how self-disposing they turned out to be.
- Killed Off for Real: Bo-bobo fastens shackles with steel balls hanging off 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 Super Fist to create a parachute and land safely, but unless he didn't...
- Cartoon Creature: His name's Japanese for "mole", but he looks very little like one.
The Maruhage/Margarita New Emperor Playoffs (The Bald Bowl)
- And Now For Something Completely Different: She uses her Super Fist for holding ramen-eating contests instead of fighting.
- Beauty Is Never Tarnished: She's the only female Hair Hunter in the first series that's never harmed in any way. Though her pride got harmed when she lost her own contest.
- The Worf Effect: Parodied. She managed to defeat J, the strongest of the Cyber Knights... in a ramen-eating contest.
- Informed Ability: His name means "big rock", but whether that refers to his powers or not is anyone's guess.
- The Ghost: Parodied. He's only mentioned once in one panel in the very first chapter where the empire's hierarchy map is shown, and but Bo-Bobo never encounters him and he's never seen or mentioned in the story.
- The Reveal: He's revealed to be a tiger in supplemental materials. As in a non-anthropomorphic, realistic-looking tiger.
- 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.
- Dude Magnet: While Kitty-Poo is in the middle of a long speech, Don Patch walks up to Lemon Fizz and hands her a Love Letter, which she promptly rips in half. Bobobo follows, with the same result. Then Hatenko gives her one, resulting in a Luminescent Blush and her happily opening it, only for it to be a note asking her to return a manga volume he lent her a year ago.
- Expy: She's the Zarbon to Kitty-Poo's Frieza.
- Fan Disservice: She's a fairly pretty girl and you're able to get a look at her panties in the manga... except this happens the same time Don Patch punches the hell out of her and causes blood to fly out her mouth. Also, the last time you see her in the manga proper is shortly after Don Patch attacks her: she's on the ground, surrounded by debris and with a look on her face implying Don Patch either knocked her unconcious or killed her.
- Informed Ability: According to Kitty-Poo, she's stronger than Captain Battleship. Since she, Kitty-Poo and Chocolate Munchie are all promptly defeated by Don Patch in one fell swoop, this power is never demonstrated.
- Panty Shot: In the manga, when Don Patch punches her, which launches her in the air. It's a bit of a Fan Disservice, though, as blood spews out of her mouth in the process.
Video Game Exclusive
- Accidental Misnaming: Nice Guy apparently cannot remember people's names, so he refers to everyone as "Tanaka".
Jail wields the Super Fist of the Black Chain, which allows him to attack his enemies with an endless amount of chains.
The Former Maruhage/Margarita Empire (The Former Chrome Dome Empire)
The third era of the Chrome Dome Empire, which was led by Czar Baldy Bald III. For reasons unknown, Baldy Bald III and all twenty-six of his Block leaders were put in cryogenic chambers, where they slept for 100 years. Now the Block leaders are awake, Baldy Bald IV sees this as a chance to defeat Bo-bobo once and for all. So Baldy Bald IV creates Neo Hair-Hunt Land MAX, yet another amusement park that doubles as a battleground, for the Block leaders to dwell in and fight the Rebels while Baldy Bald III continues to rest until it's time for him to take center stage.
- Always a Bigger Fish: Though they ultimately fail to stop the Rebels, they're still much more formidable than the various groups from the empire's fourth era, often forcing Bobo-Bo and his gang to break out all sorts of new tricks to defeat them.
- Bare Your Midriff: Rem, Lambada, and Jeda, the latter two being male examples.
- Badass Army This entire generation of soldiers is described as such, having conquered almost all the known world in four days.
- Hypocrite: Once again, despite the fact they're dedicated to ridding the world of hair, a good deal of their members have full heads of hair. Even Baldy Bald III, robot or not, has hair.
- Oddly Small Organization: They don't have the various factions and subsidiaries of Hair Hunters the fourth era has. It's just Baldy Bald III, his 26 Block leaders, Rose-Lily's five Hair Hunters, and the two Hair Hunters that encounter Baldy Bald IV, bringing the amount of members they've got to a grand total of 34. That said, they aren't pushovers and came very close to defeating the Rebels.
- Older Is Better: In the current fourth generation, the Hair Hunter regular troops and their commanders are mostly pushovers to a skilled Fist user with the exception of A-Block, with a lot of the power reliant on the Big 4, Giga's Cyber City, some assassins, and Dark Yasha- with the current Czar proving to be inept in terms of leadership and physical ability even discounting the fact he's merely a figure head for Bibibi. The Third generation, its direct predecessor, are significantly more powerful, with a select number of regular Mooks being as difficult a threat as one of the Big 4/Cyber City's Quirky Mini Boss Squad, with the Hair Hunt Block commanders, individually requiring Bobobo to need a power-up to defeat them, and a Fusion Dance to defeat the three strongest ones. Their leader, a very powerful fighter with not one, but two Super Fists not only proves to be a difficult challenge requiring OVER of all people to aid, but briefly puts Bobobo in a corner, and manages to become the much more efficient Big Bad of the Time Skip with a much more competent empire under his leadership once he gains a Hair Ball to reestablish his leadership.
- 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.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: They've got their own versions of the fourth era's block leaders. For example, Jeda the Wind God and Rose-Lily Kikunojo are essentially their era's versions of the fourth era's Geha the Gale and Hagen.
- 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.
- Creepy High-Pitched Voice: In the English dub, he has a dissonantly higher-pitched voice that contrasts with his more regal appearance, which gives him an uncanny eeriness even before the Robotic Reveal. Averted in the original version, where his voice is appropriately deep.
- Deconstruction: Of the Cruel Mercy trope. Bo-bobo's chosen to let every Hair Hunter up to this point live, likely because he sees them living with the knowledge they were defeat by him to be a Fate Worse than Death. Either that, or he believes that they've still got a chance to change their ways. Tsurulina III takes the fact Bo-bobo let him live as a chance to commit even more atrocious acts, to the point where he revives the Chrome Dome Empire in Shinsetsu and tears through the Hair Kingdom, where he kills Bi-bibi and absorbs his Hair Ball. Needless to say, Bo-bobo should've killed him when he had the chance.
- Evil Sounds Deep: Played straight the original Japanese version, courtesy of Ryotaro Okiayu that gives him a suitably deep and regal voice. Subverted in the English dub, which gives him a much higher pitch voice.
- Fantastic Racism: Considers humans nothing but scum.
- Genre Refugee: He wouldn't be out of place in a regular fighting shounen manga, as he stands out for being completely serious and ruthless. The only other antagonist who comes even close to him is Bibibi.
- 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.
- Hypocrite: Robot or not, he's the leader of an empire that wants to rid the world of hair, yet has head full of red hair.
- 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 a 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 to his younger siblings even prior to this. He takes his Hair Ball, temporarily killing him and leading into the events of the Time Skip, but the killing was seen as well-deserved punishment as Bobobo had let Bibibi off the hook too easily after defeating 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. He becomes more of this in the Time Skip, leading the series to be slightly Darker and Edgier.
- 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.
- No Indoor Voice: He practically screams all of his lines in the dub.
- 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.
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: In the context of the story, he was the latest Arc Villain to defeat, which made his refusal to give up his evil ways, leading to him returning to become the Big Bad of the Time Skip.
- 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.
- Primary-Color Champion: Inverted HARD. His color scheme consists of primary colors, such as red hair and blue eyes, the yellow phoenix tattoo on his forehead, as well as his blue coat, red shoulderpads, and yellow belt, but he's the single most serious, ruthless, and dangerous villains in the entire series
- 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.
- Vocal Dissonance: He has a very loud, high pitched voice in the English dub in contrast to his regal and intimidating appearance. It foreshadows the artificial quality of him, once it's revealed that he's a robot underneath his appearance and is incomplete without a Hair 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 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.
The Seven Main Block Leaders
After joining up with the Rebels, he fights with "Hanpen Jujitsu", a goofy, but powerful form of martial arts.
- A Father to His Men: Treats his allies with more respect than Bo-Bobo does his own.
- Blood Knight: Although he was confident he was superior and later fights for his comrades, Hanpen likes a good fight.
- The Dragon: To Czar Baldy Bald III.
- HeelFace Turn: Much like Jiggler before him, Hanpen sides with the Rebels after getting defeated by them, choosing to fight alongside them during the Bald Bowl.
- Non-Human Head: His head is a fishcake with a face, and he apparently used to be just a fishcake.
- 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.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Like Jelly Jiggler, he's an eccentric, anthropomorphic foodstuff and the leader of his era's A-Block, who defects from his empire to join the Rebels after getting defeated, only to treated as a joke for the remainder of the series.
- Crossdresser: Although unwillingly.Lambada:Why am I dressed like a colorblind prom date!?
- Cross-Dressing Voices: In the English dub.
- Determinator: According to Rem, he once had a stare-down with General Lee Fishcake until the General passed out.

- Blow You Away: As per his powers as a wind god.
- Clipped-Wing Angel: His forced fusion with Baron Von Horny, results in a ridiculous form that makes all of his attacks ineffective.
- Humiliation Conga: Once Patchbobo is formed, Jeda's competency as a fighter is torn to shreds by the fusion, the worse was being fused with Baron Von Horny, resulting in a form that makes all of his attacks useless on top of looking ridiculous.
- Merging Mistake: The pinnacle of his humiliation was being fused with Baron Von Horny into a silly form that makes his attacks completely worthless.
- Sinister Scythe: He summons one for his "wind scythe" attacks.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: He's the former Chrome Dome Empire's answer to Geha the Gale, being the leader of C-Block and having wind-based powers.

- 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...
- HeelFace 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 sleep.
- Mind Screw: Some of her background, is that she's the rather human offspring of two beds. Thinking about that might make your head hurt.
- Power Dyes Your Hair: In her Berserker form, her hair turns from white to lavender and her eyes turn pink.
- Power Makes Your Hair Grow: And gives you a jacket.
- Troubled Backstory Flashback: Apparently, she's actually the daughter of two beds. During her childhood, she was mocked by the other bed children.
- It's worse in the manga, she was BEATEN BY HER PARENTS.
- Stripperiffic: Yet no one really cares.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: She's the Kitemasu of the former Chrome Dome Empire, due to having a sleep Motif (Rem's narcoleptic, while Kitemasu wears pajamas).

- Hidden Eyes: His helmet casts a shadow over his eyes.

- Trap Master: He uses the Super Fist of Trapping.
- Beard of Evil: Somehow sports one, despite having an inorganic object for a body, and it's depicted as a black ring around his mouth.
- Elemental Powers: Oddly enough, fire, in the form of the Sun, which leads to him being a Joke Character.
- HeelFace Turn: In order to get past a guard, he sides with Don Patch and Beauty. This lasts about five minutes before a FaceHeel Turn.
- Joke Character: He's a bowl of shaved ice, and has the Fist of Summer. This does not end well for him.
- One-Winged Angel: Capable to transform into a Death Star-esque version of himself
- Punny Name: Doubling as a Meaningful Name, his name is a play on "ujikintoki", Japanese shaved ice.
- Gender-Blender Name: With a name like "Rose-Lily", you'd think he was female.
- Kick the Dog: Telling Bobobo in the most jerk-like way possible that his ancestors had always been helpless hairballs instead of the heroes he admired. And attacking all of his friends on top of it.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: To Hagen, being an effeminate man who leads G-Block and is the very first major player of his era of the Empire the rebels fight and defeat.
- Wake-Up Call Boss: Manages to be this, pushing Bobobo to a corner before he reverses it with his Super Bobobo powers.
Other Block Leaders (in Block order)
- Meaningful Name: In the original Japanese, he's named after a kind of fishcake that he looks like.
- Equippable Ally: Parodied, at a point during the fight Hanpen uses him as armor, it proves to make him unable to move and it didn't protect him from any attack.
- Unexplained Recovery: Tenbobo cuts his head, however he's fine in the next shot.
- Nice Hat: His big "takuhatsugasa" hat.
- HeelFace 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.
- 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)
- Our Vampires Are Different: The sunlight doesn't bother him.
- Ambiguous Situation: Why he looks like Haoh is anyone's guess, but it's likely he's just Haoh's ancestor.

- Reused Character Design: Looks a lot like Haoh but with longer horns, one extra horn in the middle of his head and angry eyes, although this is never commented on.

- Curb-Stomp Battle: He delivers one to Tennosuke and on the receiving of a colossal one by Don Patch.
- Enemy Summoner: Can summon monsters to fight for him.
- Enemy Scan: Has an telescope that allows him to do this, unfortunately for him it is totally useless against Don Patch.
- Even Evil Has Standards: When Don Patch fishes Jelly Jiggler back into the fight, Roman Samurai chastises him for breaking the rules.
- I Have Many Names: When he first appears, he's referred to as "Romantic You". It's only after a little while longer his actual name, "Ishikawa Goemon", is revealed.
- Named After Somebody Famous: He's likely named after "Yagyu Munenori", a famous swordsman from the Tokugawa Era.
- Bishōnen: Parodied. He styles himself as a pretty boy model, but is actually more in line with a Gonk in terms of appearance.
- Gonk: Despite how much of a Bishōnen he thinks he is, he's quite the visually unappealing fellow: he's got a pair of massive eyes that look like holes; no visible neck, eyebrows, or ears, and an ugly haircut.
- Joke Character: The only former Block commander to be no threat whatsoever, as his only "power" is holding fashion shows.
- Ass Shove: His specialty and does this Up to Eleven in the later story arcs...

- Sdrawkcab Name: Abubul, as in "a bubble."
- Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Torpedo Girl manage to defeat all of them offscreen.
- Ridiculously Average Guy: Assuming that theirs looks were changed for the sake of the joke, all of them like bland, featureless humanoids, which is stark contrast to the varied designs of the other Hair Hunt Troop leaders from 100 years ago.
- Series Continuity Error: Due to an animation error, when the pile of Block leaders are shown, there are six of them when there should only be five of them.
- The Worf Effect: Their existence is to essentially show how strong Torpedo Girl by managing to defeat 5 former Hair Hunter troop commanders from 100 years ago with ease while the others were met with some difficulty.
Rose-Lily Kikunojo's Hair Hunters
- Breath Weapon: He can breathe fire.
- Fat Bastard: Round and is a villain working with the villainous former G-Block commander from 100 years ago.

- Riddle for the Ages: Just like Rose-Lily Kikunojo, #5's got a string with a bell attatched to it around his neck. Why he does is unknown. Maybe he's Rose-Lily's deputy commander?
- Dissonant Serenity: #6 keeps a perpetual cheerfulness in spite of being unashamedly bloodthirsty.

- Always a Bigger Fish
- Darker and Edgier: They wield "Dark Fists" instead of Super Fists.

- Always a Bigger Fish: Much more powerful than his brother could ever hope to be.
- Big Bad: Takes over his older brother's role during the story arc.
- Comically Serious: Despite being even more evil and more powerful than his brother, he's not above using wacky items and his Shinken. Lampshaded by Beauty:Beauty: Is this guy really a dark-series character?!
- Conflict Killer: His interrupting of the Bald Bowl pretty much calls off the war on the regular Chrome Dome Empire, as Bo-bobo goes the Hair Kingdom to face Bi-bibi after defeating Hydrate, completely forgetting about Baldy Bald IV.

- Evil Overlord: Desired to be this since his childhood, but Bobobo manages to defeat him before he gets too far. However, he manages to be infinitely more confident than his older brother ever was.
- Heart Is an Awesome Power: He uses the Ura no Ashi Shinken, the Fist of Foot Sole which is exactly that.
- Interim Villain: He more or less interrupts the plot with his invasion, as his plans have nothing to do with the conspiracy surrounding the Hair Kingdom, and neither he nor anyone from his empire returns after he's defeated.
- Powered Armor: Exaggerated. He goes through three different armors during his battle: the "Nyan-Nyan Armor" (a.k.a. cat pajamas), which somehow make him Nigh-Invulnerable apart from an Ass Shove by Kancho-kun and Dengakuman's power, of all people; the "Aburage Armor", which consists of a wooden bra and loincloth; and the "Dark Necros Armor", which makes him even more Nigh-Invulnerable.

He wields the Ope Shinken (The Super Fist of Surgery), which allows him to fully embrace his sadistic tendencies by being able to cut anyone and everyone open with scalpuls and other such surgical intruments.
- Ax-Crazy: He has a very bloodthirsty, insane, and sadistic personality- even by the show's standards side when the battle goes long, forcing the fight to go from a 3-on-3 to everyone against him to stop him once and for all. He wiped out almost the entire Babylon tribe as a child to sate his bloodlust and he's Unlike the usual craziness of the show, his insanity is played dark and disturbingly straight.

- Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: Even when compared to Czar Baldy Bald the III before the Timeskip, Byakko is a dark and disturbing character that contrasts with the shows' usual silliness. A psychotic murderer from a young age that massacred an entire tribe and has a fighting style that is built around grotesque surgery, sadomasochism, and murder.
- Animal Motif: He was a cat when he was 8!
- Bishōnen: In fact he's so handsome that it's startling to know that he's the older brother of Bobobo who looks older than him.

The Reverse Four Heavenly Kings (The Shadow Big Four)
- BFS: Can manifest these as projectiles, but his transformed state allows him to wield one perpetually.
- The Brute: As powerful as he is, his fighting style amounts to little more than flinging giant swords at his opponents. It gets even worse once he becomes Halon Oni 2, where he more or less just thrashes about with his massive BFS.

- Fate Worse than Death: Subverted. He gets struck by lightning and inexplicably transformed into a Baby Patch, but he doesn't seem to mind it.

- One-Winged Angel: In desperation, he fuses with his own Fist to transform into "Halon Oni 2", a grown-up version of himself with a BFS.

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.

It's later revealed by Tsurubinya that Namerou was born with a powerful aura. That aura serves as proof that Namerou is the true heir to the throne, and that he'd one day rule the Maruhage Empire after Baldy Bald III. Tsurubinya decides to speed this along by unlocking Namerou's aura, causing Namerou to proclaim himself "Emperor Tsuru Trusulina V". Namerou than gains the Super Fist of the Emperor, which allows him to channel his aura in the form of attacks that kill his opponents instantly.
The Neo Chrome Dome Three Great Kings
The Nine Experts
JatyHiragi's assistant and a doppelganger of Beauty, who came into existence one night when Beauty was alseep.

Her Super Fist is a reversed, weaponized version of the regular Beauty's role in the series: Jaty forces others to react to bizarre situations, all while lobbing ice-themed attacks at them.
- Evil Counterpart: To Beauty. Jati's a superpowered Action Girl that reacts to barely anything, while Beauty's a powerless Neutral Female that overreacts to everything.
- Meaningful Name: Jaty's name is the Kanji for "evil" (邪, pronounced ja) with the last two letters in Beauty's name added at the end.
- Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: She really hates Don Patch, which is likely derived from the way Don Patch treats the real Beauty.
- Wild Take: Her Super Fist allows her to make others do this while she attacks them with ice.

The Holy Spaghetti Academy
