Chrome Dome Empire

The primary antagonists of the series, the Chrome Dome Empire rules over the world with an iron fist. By the order of its ruler, Czar Baldy Bald IV, the empire's many soldiers have invaded countless villages and towns, cutting people's hair and leaving them in ruins.
    In General 

Tropes Associated with the Margarita Empire

  • Ambiguous Situation: Other than the Czar himself, most of the Block commanders, all of the generic Hair Hunt troops and the countless Cartoon Creatures, all of the soldiers who serve the empire have hair, despite the fact ridding the world of hair is their job. Even the Four Heavenly Kings, Giga and Yami Yasha—the empire's most powerful soldiers—have hair. The fact nobody ever questions this, not even Only Sane Woman Beauty, just makes it stranger.
  • Bald of Evil: Zigzagged. The majority of the grunts and the standard leaders, including the leader himself, possess no hair on their head. Initially subverted with H-Block, who have hair, but it turns out to be wigs....only for the Big 4, the right hand man of the Czar and prominent members to have ridiculous anime hair anyway.
  • Hypocrite: The bulk of the soldiers of an empire that wants to rid the world of hair... have hair themselves. sometimes to ridiculously Anime Hair extents. How exactly that works, is anybody's guess.
  • Leitmotif: Terrifying Margarita Empire, a Dark Reprise for Coming of the Hair Hunters. It is this for the Big 4, the Czar and his aides as a whole.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Bo-bobo_Tsurulina4_9203.jpg
Voiced by: Taiki Matsuno (JP), Terrence Stone (EN), Luis Vicente Ivars (Spain)
The ruler of the Chrome Dome Empire and the Big Bad of the first series. He's essentially the embodiment of Orcus on His Throne, as he spends most of the series literally on his throne, doing nothing while the countless soldiers that make up his army fight for him.
  • 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.
    • 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.
  • Hollywood Cyborg: Turns out to be one as demonstrated with partially cybernetic eye, but has none of the fighting power of the Third.
  • Informed Ability: Soften makes Giga's power being equal to the 4th which is rendered mute when Hydrate forces him out of power
  • Manipulative Bastard: He relies on coercing others to do his work for him and ultimately planned to have them kill each other in order to get the throne. It backfires when Hydrate takes the authority away from him.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: He reliance on others to his work for him ultimately cost him his right to the throne, especially when the one who took the throne was the same little brother he sent away who trained to be by his side!
  • Orcus on His Throne: It's no exaggeration that all of his elite forces plus the previous generation of Hair Hunters were defeated before he actually decided to take matters into his own hands, the method which decided to do so, backfires on him epically.
    • It becomes justified once it's revealed that he was a Puppet King for Bibibi, having no fighting skills as a result.
  • Pointy Ears: Has them along with sharp teeth.
  • Puppet King: Bibibi's statement outright state this, which makes sense in hindsight that he didn't ever try to fight Bobobo on his own terms.
  • The Reveal: Downplayed, he is actually a Hollywood Cyborg, but his immediate retreat from power reveals he's not that strong.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Once Hydrate takes over, he ungracefully deserts his title to escape with his life.
  • Smug Snake: His default fallback is that he calls someone of a high rank in the Empire to kill his enemies for him, and become angry when they lose. Considering he relied on Dengakuman as his first option didn't help his case. It ended up backfiring when his latest scheme to hold a tournament in hopes of finding someone to kill Bobobo for him, results in his dethronement by his very resentful brother, who managed to sneak in his entire kingdom into the tournament due to negligence and laziness of checking who killed Bobobo, only that it got it done.
  • The Unfought: Despite being built up the Big Bad of the series for several arcs, he flees his empire once Hydrate takes over. And it turns out he was a Puppet King for Bibibi, to publicly run the Empie.

    Mako-chan 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Mako-chan_5038.PNG

  • The Dragon: In both literal as being a purple dragon and implied to be his right-hand mistress.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: She is the Czar's wife, one of the few people that he truly cares about, in spite of being a terrible boss regardless.
  • Fluffy the Terrible: Would you expect a demonic looking dinosaur thing be named "Mako-chan"?
  • The Unfought: Like her spouse, she doesn't get to fight Bobobo's group once Hydrate took over.

Then challenges Bobobo to fight him, with the latter eventually getting the better of him. That is until he transforms into a torpedo....girl?!! He/She proceeds to beat the crap of him until he defeats him/her with an ultimate technique. He attempts a hostage situation with Suzu, only to be curb stomped by Bobobo again. He returns as Torpedo Girl to help the main cast, until she becomes Over again against the Third, only a short time later to remain as Torpedo Girl until the end of the series.


  • Ambiguously Human: He has pointy ears, six orbs on his chest that light up when he's angered, and that's not even getting into the fact that his true form is an anthropomorphic torpedo.
  • Arc Villain: Of the "OVER's Castle" arc
  • Arch-Enemy: Jelly Jiggler is this to him, with his existence being enough to target him specifically.
  • Ax-Crazy: The craziest in the conventional sense in that he has an extreme Hair-Trigger Temper and a morbid obsession with cutting hair, but not as crazy as BattleShip.
  • Big Scissors: His main weapon, he uses it as a sword or just cutting people's hair
  • Blood Knight: He wants to fight Bobobo because he is strong and takes a liking to him after he's beaten by him.
  • Berserk Button: His six orbs act as this whenever he gets annoyed, especially with Jelly Jiggler.

  • Hair-Trigger Temper: When he gets annoyed, he gets extremely angry, when all orbs light up he...
  • Multiple-Choice Past: As Torpedo Girl, she's introduced with the notion she was built as a standard model, but then a conflicting story with Hydrate states that she had a childhood with her father, Landmine Dandy being her father and neither explains how OVER himself came into the equation.
  • One-Winged Angel: transforms into a female torpedo with lipstick, long fair legs with red heel toed shoes, eyelashes and a ridiculously feminine personality, even the main characters are just disappointed by this.
  • Knight of Cerebus: He's played up as a legitimately serious villain with few quirks compared to the previous two Kings who were both quite goofy. Even his weapon, a giant pair of scissors, is comparatively tame in comparison to most fighting styles and also incredibly dangerous given the series' focus on hair. Then he transforms into Torpedo Girl, but ends up being a dangerous threat anyway due to being very effective against the goofiness of the heroes as she instantly attacks them whenever they act goofy.
  • Only Sane Man: He's quite annoyed by Bobobo's actions, but he never has any of the outrageous outbursts that the rest of the straight men do. Despite becoming incredibly goofy himself when transformed into Torpedo Girl, her power actually comes from calling out others on their stupidity.
  • Shear Menace: He wields a BFS version of these as a weapon to violently slash with bloody results or or generate violet energy slashes at his enemies}} in the anime.
  • Sixth Ranger: As Torpedo Girl, complete with a Heel–Face 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.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: Has a long mane of white hair.
  • You Have Failed Me: Punishes Kitty Poo and Battleship for losing to Bobobo.

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Green ones.

Voiced By: Richard Cansino (EN), Luis Vicente Ivars (Spain)

The deputy commander of A-Block.


  • Almighty Janitor: Despite only being the Vice-Leader of A Block, he is incredibly powerful, nearly killing Gasser and being a match to Bobobo when they fought. He was only beaten when an unrestrained Gasser managed to overload him. During the Emperor Playoffs, he was worthy of holding a gold medal. To put it in perspective, Giga, who was said to be as strong as Tsuru Tsurulina IV and served as the Wake-Up Call Boss, only had a Silver Medal.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Captain Ishida 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/captain_ishidapng.png
A space policeman that a Wiggin Bird will turn into if one's Wiggin level's too low. At some point in time after the defeat of Gunkan, Ishida bought Jelly Jiggler from the store he worked at, and deliberately mistreated him in order to toughen him up... in the anime, anyway. In the manga, he's means to send Jiggler as the empire's first line of defense for invading Mars.
  • Ambiguously Human: He speaks in a very robotic manner and neither his posture nor expression ever changes, not even when Bo-Bobo attacks him. It's downplayed in the anime, however, where he moves quite a lot, speaks like a regular person and shrieks in pain when attacked.
  • Ambiguous Situation: Why exactly he's what Wiggin Birds transform into if a person's Wiggin level's too low, is anyone's guess. There's also the question of whether he's human, or a Ridiculously Human Robot, since he speaks in a robotic manner, has a statue-like posture, and there's more than one of him in the games.
  • Frozen Face: He never blinks and his mouth is perpetually agape. Even when Bo-bobo attacks him, his face stays the same.
  • Gonk: The crude way he's drawn in, coupled with his statue-like posture and Frozen Face, make him slightly unnerving.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: He's drawn in a far sloppier manner compared to how everybody else looks in the manga, probably to reflect how low the Wiggin levels of those who summon him are. It's downplayed in the anime, however, where he's drawn in the same quality as everyone else, but still has a more realistic-looking face.

The first of the Ultimate Five Assassins to face Bobobo and the others.
  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Has the honor of being one of the very few antagonists who doesn't get brutally attacked, likely due to her just being a little girl. The worst things that happen to her are Bo-bobo putting her in a trash bin and Don Patch knocking her into a hole in the ground. Keep in mind the latter scene was changed to her stumbling into the hole on her own in the anime.

  • 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.

  • 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.

The deputy commander of H-Block, he kidnaps Beauty with the intent of making her bald, only to be the first on-screen defeat of Gasser.
  • 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.

    Puppet Man (Puppet Lad) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/puppetmanpng.png
A sentient puppet and a member of L-Block, who challenges Bo-bobo to a battle. Bo-bobo makes Gasser fight him, but without using the Fist of the Back Wind.
  • Shout-Out: He looks very much like a LEGO mini-figure.
  • The Worf Effect: He manages to easily defeat Gasser, but loses easily to Bobobo demonstrates his alternative Fist to defeat him, demonstrating the lack of experience of the former's over-reliance on his singular fist and the latter's versatile fighting techniques and greater experience.
  • Weak, but Skilled: He doesn't wield a Fist and can only flail his arms to attack. That said, he never lets up on it when fighting Gasser, never giving him a chance to attack. And he's surprisingly quick on his feet, to the point where Gasser never gets a single hit in before Bo-bobo intervenes.

  • Expy: She's the Zarbon to Kitty-Poo's Frieza.
  • Panty Shot: In the manga. It's a bit of a Fan Disservice, though, considering it happens as Don Patch punches her and blood's spewing out of her mouth.

    Yami Yasha and Samba Man

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sambamanpng.png
Voiced By: Eiji Takemoto (JP), Paul St. Peter (Dark Yasha- EN), Michael Sorich (Sambaman- EN)
The Chrome Dome Empire's highest official and a competitor in the Bald Bowl. He uses the Super Fist of Skulls, which allows him to manipulate bones of any kind, from reanimating skeletons and making them fight for him, to fashioning a sword out of skulls. Much like OVER before him, he transforms into something outlandish in a last-ditch effort defeat Bo-bobo. In this case, it's Samba Man, a very strange creature who loves to sing and dance.
  • Canon Foreigner: Originally appeared in 9-Kyoku Senshi Gyagu Yūgō, one of the games on the GBA, with his true form being the game's True Final Boss.
  • Giant Space Flea from Nowhere: He's a high-ranking member of the empire, but since his existence was never properly established prior to it, he quite literally comes out of nowhere to fight Bo-bobo in the Bald Bowl.
  • No Name Given: His human form went unnamed in the English dub for some reason.
  • One-Winged Angel: Subverted. Bo-bobo and the gang make very quick work of him after he transforms into Samba Man.
    • It's played straight in 9-Kyoku Senshi Gyagu Yūgō, however, where Samba Man is genuinely hard to take down.
  • Orcus on His Throne: More so than Baldly Bald IV, who's at least seen unleashing most of the groups Bo-bobo fights on him. Yami Yasha's apparently the most powerful Hair Hunter the Chrome Dome Empire's got that isn't a Block leader or a Heavenly King, yet did nothing to stop Bo-bobo until the Bald Bowl. Keep in mind by then, Bo-bobo and company's torn through most of the Blocks, all four of the Heavenly Kings' bases of operations, Cyber City and Neo Hair Hunt Land MAX.
  • Surprise Difficulty: Samba Man is very hard to beat in 9-Kyoku Senshi Gyagu Yūgō. Averted in the manga and anime, where he's a total pushover.
  • True Final Boss: Samba Man was this for 9-Kyoku Senshi Gyagu Yūgō.
  • What, Exactly, Is His Job?: The subtitle in his debut in the manga is "Chrome Dome Empire's Highest Official", but it's unclear where exactly that puts him in the empire's hierarchy, as he's neither a Block leader nor a Heavenly King. If anything, he's either above or around the same level as Telu, the supreme commander of the Hair Hunt troops.

    Menma (Memma) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/menmapng.png
Voiced By: Minoru Shiraishi (JP), Stephanie Sheh (EN)
The guardian of the Death Ramen Highway, the 33rd preliminary course of the Bald Bowl. She wields the Fist of Ramen, which allows her to endlessly produce bowls of ramen out of thin air.
  • And Now For Something Completely Different: She prefers to use her Fist of Ramen to challenge her opponents to a ramen eating contest instead of using it to battle them. Because of this, she's one of the very few Hair Hunters whom Bo-bobo never fights traditionally, and he never attacks her randomly like he does most of the other antagonists.
  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished: She's the only antagonist in the first series besides Ruby to go completely unscathed when encountering Bo-bobo, as she challenges him to a ramen eating contest instead of a battle.
  • Expy: Of Sailor Moon, mainly her Odango Hair and the various poses she strikes.
  • Sailor Senshi Send-Up: Has Odango Hair and tends to strike Sailor Moon-esque poses.

Voiced by: Ryotaro Okiayu (JP), David Lodge (EN), Salvador Serrano (Spain)
The ruler of the Chrome Dome Empire from 100 years ago, resting until his reawakening in the Former Hair Hunt Troop Arc where he fights Bobobo and Co. Unlike every other villain, he decides to remain evil, killing Bibibi to obtain his Hair Ball and becomes the Big Bad of the Shinsetsu Time Skip.
  • Arc Villain: Of the Former Hair Hunters arc, uniquely, he manages to ascend into the Big Bad role for the Time Skip by finally obtaining the Hair Ball from Bibibi.
  • Always a Bigger Fish: Much, much worse than Baldy Bald IV and Hydrate
  • Big Bad: Of the Former Hair Hunters arc and Shinsetsu.
  • Clipped-Wing Angel: Played with, His absorption of Bobobo and Don Patch does give him the powers he craved....., but made him change into a pink Cartoon Creature, which was not his intention. Subverted with his later attempt with Bibibi that results in a far less humiliating form.
  • Cherry Tapping: Ultimately defeated by Bo-bobo giving him a light chop to the armpit in Shinsetsu, after the standard arc-ending montage attack.
  • Fantastic Racism: Considers humans nothing but scum.
  • Hollywood Cyborg: As it turns out, he's truly some sort of android with a human exterior, revealed when he was injured for the first time as part of a Robotic Reveal and later briefly as his skin peels off to reveal his robotic form just before His Clipped-Wing Angel.
  • Ignored Epiphany: After Bobobo goes to get efforts to show a technique to show him the wonders of humanity, he still decides to Take Over the World and make it worse than before.
  • Kick The Son Of The Bitch: Does this to Bibibi, who started the entire current generation of the Hair Hunt operations that wiped out his original civilization, temporally murdered his own family and had been a Big Brother Bully even prior to this. He takes his Hair Ball, temporarily killing him.
  • Kick the Dog: He has a roulette attack just to target Bobobo's friends one by one until they were destroyed.
  • Kick Them While They Are Down: kills Bi-bibi and steals his Hair Ball after Bo-bobo has defeated him, paving the way for his rise to power and the sequel series.
  • Knight of Cerebus: A misanthropic megalomanic whose first action against Bobobo is to immediately try and kill him, and decided to slowly kill off his friends once he finds out that he is a Living Macguffin. Not something you'd expect from odd series like this
  • Lack of Empathy: When confronted by Bobobo after pushing his Berserk Button
    "Do you think I care?"
  • Leitmotif: A subtle, but noticeable organ is played twice in his fight during his dark moments.
  • Not Even Human: Upon absorbing the Hair Ball in the first fight with him, he reveals his true form to be a robotic demonic being.
  • Our Robots Are Non Standard: Being an android and all.
  • No-Nonsense Nemesis: Has little to no quirks compared to his underlings and his reaction to any comedy is to ignore and continue to try to kill someone.
  • Order Versus Chaos: seeks an entirely ordered world where those who do not obey his every command are dead.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: In his introduction, he throws a few knives off into the distance. The result is something ripped right out of Dragon Ball.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: He rest for 100 years prior to his awakening.
  • Superpower Lottery: Notably, he's the only main villain to not have just one, but two Super Fists, Red Magic that deals with physical stage magic based attacks and Blue Magic that focuses on mental degradation based attacks.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: A very notable example considering most of the villains become allies at this point Despite Bobobo sparing his life, he decides to screw everyone over by taking Bibibi's Hair Ball and reestablishing his empire for the Shinsetsu Time Skip series.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: He's a cybernetic, misanthropic megalomaniac with no hesitation in committing atrocities in order to maintain his authority. He stands out since most of the series involves light-hearted yet bizarre comedy, and is the sole reason after getting the Hair Ball that he manages to make the series Darker and Edgier with his new abilities.

  • 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.

  • Meaningful Name: As in "Rapid Eye Movement", a stage of sleeping.

The subordinates of Major Minor, they are, as their names imply, a pair of girls wearing swimsuits. They used to be the leaders of J-Block (Bathing Suit Girl) and W Block (Bikini Girl)
  • 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.

The last of the Reverse Four Heavenly Kings/Shadow Big 4 Bobobo and the others face.
  • The Baroness: She's very domineering and likes using her sexual appeal to dominate others. She even reveals a domantrit outfit when it's her turn to fight.
  • 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, utilizing kisses and exploitive sexual themes to weaken her enemies.
  • 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!
  • The Smurfette Principle: The only prominent female member of the Shadow Big 4, let alone the Shadow Chrome Dome Empire.
  • Stripper Iffic: Wears a very scandalous outfit of a crop top and a very gorgeous figure to flaunt it. It's then taken Up to Eleven when she reveals her dominatrix outfit.
