Genius Bruiser / Anime & Manga

Go To

  • The Dragon Ball franchise:
    • From the original series, King Piccolo. Not only was he ungodly powerful when he was introduced, but he was also extremely intelligent. He had the heroes collect all the remaining Dragon Balls before he confronted them and swallowed the Dragon Balls he had so they couldn't steal them.
    • Downplayed with Goku since he has never had any formal education and often lacks common sense. However, he is an excellent combatant and a tactical genius, able to pick up new skills with ease, and outmaneuver fighters who are intelligently smarter than him. Furthermore, once he gets a basic understanding of something, he learns very quickly. He figures how to drive Bulma's motorcycle and make it jump several feet into the air, despite never even seeing an automobile until an hour ago.

    • In Dragon Ball Z, Gohan is one of the most powerful members of the cast, and also one of the smartest. He is a straight A student and was able to do Pre-Calculus when he was only five.
    • Master Roshi. He has several years of wisdom, as well as being the strongest human at the start of the series.
    • Piccolo is easily the smartest of the Z-Fighters especially after merging with Kami, and after Vegeta shows up and Gohan comes into his own he's often the fourth or fifth strongest. For a short time, he was the strongest in the group. His intelligence was the reason Buu decided to absorb him, rather than merely eating him.
    • Future Trunks is a variant. His fighting style is mostly brute force, but he's quite intelligent out of battle, being raised by his mother who is a technical genius.
    • When his pride and ego isn't getting the best of him, Vegeta. He outsmarts Frieza on Namek, managing to steal his Dragon Balls and almost had all seven if Gohan didn't have the Dragon Radar. It was also his plan that killed Kid Buu. He is also a genius at fighting like Goku.

    • Cell. He inherited the cunning mind of King Piccolo and his son, which he uses to run circles around the heroes. He also uses his knowledge of Vegeta's pride to trick him into allowing him to become complete. His knowledge of fighting are second only to Goku and Piccolo and he was all but a Physical God before he was finally killed.
    • Super Buu is easily the smartest villain in the series despite his rude mannerism and dumb way of speaking. He let's people underestimate how smart he is to put them off-guard. He outsmarts Piccolo, he uses knowledge of Gotenks to make him fused so he can absorb him, and never picks up the Villain Ball unlike every other villain in the series. He becomes even smarter after absorbing Piccolo.
    • Goku Black from Dragon Ball Super. He masterminds the entire 'Zero Mortals Plan' first by stealing Goku's body using the Super Dragon Balls, recruiting his future self and giving him immortality before destroying the Super Dragon Balls, and killing all the gods in the future timeline. His end goal was to eventually fuse with Future Zamasu to create the powerful, immortal god Fusion Zamasu to rule as the supreme god of the multiverse. His plan would've succeeded too, if Future Trunks didn't return to the past to get help. He also shows his battle smarts when he reprimands Future Trunks for fighting on blind emotion and figures out quickly how to used his rage towards the mortals to become stronger.
    • Advertisement:
    • Frieza became one in the Universe Survival Arc. He seems to have become much more calculating and pragmatic than before.
  • Golgo 13: Medical knowledge? check. Mathematical genius? Yup. Oh and he's the world's deadliest assassin with insane combat skills from hand-to-hand to sniping. Of course, you actually need to be a math geek to be good at sniping. Medical knowledge is also pretty useful for an assassin who can't go to a normal hospital that needs to report bullet wounds.
  • Break Blade's Girge. He's a Badass in the battlefield, alright. But it's still unclear whether his badassery is adjusted with wit and strategy, or just rashness out of boredom.
  • Germany, America, and Russia from Hetalia. The first is a 6 feet tall warrior with a knack for making clocks and one of the few charas with lots of common sense in this world, the second is a cheerful Genius Ditz with Super Strength, and the third is a rather unstable brute with a knack in computer hacking.
  • Berserk many:
    • Pippin aside from being a Gentle Giant is expert miner and actually saves the his friends from a explosion in a sewer thanks looking out a airhole.
    • Griffith is strong enough to cut off Zodd's arm plus beat Guts in a duel twice, but his greatest strength is strategy outwitting an entire nation and anyone who tried to assassinate him. In his spare time Griffith spends his time reading, however when he becomes a evil Demon God his cunning is disastrous for everybody as Griffith uses an attempt to kill him as a way of making the Crapsack World even worse.
    • Guts himself while he occasionally acts like Dumb Muscle is actually pretty damn crafty. Guts is pragmatic enough that he mercilessly exploit his enemies's weaknesses, use strategies mid-battle in order to get the jump on his opponents and even let himself get set on fire knowing he can dowse himself in a demon egg sac.
    • Serpico. true he is Fragile Speedster, but he can also shred monsters pieces and held his own against Guts three times. But mostly importantly Serpico is a genius in combat and exploited Guts's BFS by fighting the latter on a clifftop and enclosed chamber.
  • Jim Austin from Genesis Climber MOSPEADA (and his counterpart, "Lunk" from Robotech).
  • Corrector Yui:
    • Peace is a wise, cranky old man who just happens to have the ability to summon and use giant, really effective firearms.
    • If we turn towards the Corruptors, Yagi fits the trope to a T.
  • My Hero Academia:
    • Katsuki Bakugo. If you assume that violent equals dumb, he will make you regret it — he has the third-best grades in the class, ahead of Izuku and only behind Tenya Iida and Momo Yaoyorozu. He is also very capable of creating intelligent strategies if his favored method of combat (Attack! Attack! Attack!) fails to do the job.
    • The aforementioned Tenya Iida is at the head of his class. In addition to being a straight-A student, he also has impressive physical capabilities: while not as overwhelmingly powerful as Midoriya or Bakugo, the engines in his legs, combined with his runner's physique, make him formidable in battle.
  • Eyeshield 21:
    • Juumonji (OL/DL) is one of the three Hah-Hah brothers, a gang of thugs who used to beat up others on a pretty regular basis. But this image is part of his rebellion against his father; he happens to be one of the smartest people on the team (only behind the three acknowledged geniuses), often figuring out things other players miss badly.
    • The Amino Cyborgs are, to the man, gifted students bound for prestigious universities — with the physiques of bodybuilders. That said, while powerful, like actual bodybuilders they aren't as strong as they appear.
    • Shin possesses an encyclopedic knowledge of anatomy and nutrition, and has applied that knowledge towards becoming as fast and as strong as he possibly can be. He is, however, incredibly ignorant when it comes to technology.
    • And Gaou, surprisingly. He looks like a caveman, started playing the sport to find someone capable of challenging him physically and plays incredibly brutally, but he's also very verbose, well informed and polite off the pitch.
    • Donald "Mr. Don" Oberman is even stronger than Gaou. He's also fluent in many languages and possesses a very keen intellect.
  • Fullmetal Alchemist: Due to the intelligence it requires (essentially a PhD thesis) and the rigors of the job (fight like a One-Man Army), most State Alchemists are either Genius Bruisers or Badass Bookworms.
    • Major Alex Louis Armstrong is also a genius alchemist who happens to have the physique of Conan the Barbarian. Indeed he's such a skilled alchemist that his combat alchemy is always perfectly sculpted (something no one else is seen to do without spending a lot of extra time).
    • Alphonse Elric was a genius alchemist even before he saw the gate. Oh and he's also soul trapped in a seven foot tall suit of steel armor.
    • Antivillain Scar is capable pseudo-alchemist and a religious leader who is nearly as buff as Armstrong.
    • Colonel (later Brigadier-General) Basque Grand is a giant of a man who towers over even Armstrong and a feared hand-to-hand combatant who also became the master of an incredibly complex alchemical style that involves creating dozens of fully functioning firearms on the fly.
  • The Prince of Tennis:
    • Choutarou Ohtori is a softspoken musician... as well as a youth around tall with an frighteningly powerful serve.
    • Gin Ishida is a huge player form Shitenhouji who has developed the Hadokyuu, a tennis shot with 108 variations, two of them also used by his younger brother Tetsu and by Takashi Kawamura.
    • Munehiro Kabaji is around tall at the age of 13 and can copy almost any tennis style with ease.
    • Both Sadaharu Inui and Renji Yanagi, the most famous Data Players, are over tall; in fact, Inui's serve is the second strongest one in the circuit, right after Ohtori's.
    • Genichirou Sanada is a fearsome leader and player as well as a kendo practitioner, and he's just a little shorter than Renji.
  • Toriko has exstensive knowledge about everything from biology to botany, which he uses to explain all of the incredible ingredients and almost supernatural environments they come across in a scientific manner. As do many of the other characters in the series, regardless of appearance.
  • All the center players in Slam Dunk. Specially Takenori Akagi, who's tall and is not only the Shohoku captain, but a straight A student (There's a quite funny scene where Kogure explains this to Sakuragi and both he and Rukawa imagine a gorilla in a school uniform).
  • Kogarashi the Maid Guy in Kamen no Maid Guy reveals that he attended MIT (gives lectures, point of fact) and is quite intelligent, even if his idea of service tends to be a bit rough. Not quite what one would expect from his appearance as a musclebound man in a dress.
  • Jotaro Kujo from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure has a Stand which specializes purely in exceptional strength and speed, without any of the fancy tricks that other Stands have until he randomly gains time stopping powers at the end of his arc. According to his enemies, however, what makes him most dangerous is his ability to think on his feet and out-strategize the enemy. His career path?? A PhD in marine biology, so that's Dr. Kujo to you.
    • As well as every other "JoJo" from Part 1 through 4. Despite being hulking masses of muscle, or at least having their major fighting ability being pure fists, their wit and quick thinking are what get them out of otherwise fatal conundrums. Although they had a bit of Indiana Jones-flair to them.
    • Johnathan Joestar, protagonist of the very first story arc, was already a published authority on archaeology before graduating. He also defeated an immortal vampire before and after learning Hamon.
    • Dio Brando not only has immense physical strength and a large array of offensive powers as an immortal vampire, but also has a massive personal library and an actual law degree.
    • Joseph Joestar, full stop. He's as heavyset as his grandpa Jonathan, but not only is Joseph 10x more cunning he's willingly to exploit cheap tactics and be tricky as possible instead of just using physical force. In later story arcs, not only Joseph is kicking ass in his late 60s and 70s but he's also a business mogul and expert pilot.
      • Joseph's foes in Part 2 the Pillar Mmen were also extremely powerful and extremely intelligent, especially Wammu. Joseph only prevailed against them by out-thinking them. When that wasn't enough in the end, only pure instinct saved him.
  • Neon Genesis Evangelion: Asuka Langley Sohryu was the best fighter and Humongous Mecha pilot in the series. She was out of college by the age of 14. Her Rebuild of Evangelion counterpart is no slouch, being a European Air Force captain at the same age as her.
  • The title character from Space Adventure Cobra has superhuman levels of strength, agility and endurance, as well as a deadly Arm Cannon. But he's primarily a Gentleman Thief with numerous talents, from mechanics to art history, and he often beats his enemies by outwitting them rather than by brute force.
  • Viede from Chrono Crusade is implied to be one of these — although he's the most physically imposing member of the Sinners, he's shown in a flash back playing chess with brainy Big Bad Aion, and he serves as a voice of reason to both Aion and Genai. This is only in the manga. In the anime, most of his appearances on screen seem to consist of him punching his fist into his hand and laughing evilly.
  • Vinland Saga: Magnificent Bastard that he is, Askeladd can tear heads off with the best of them. And "the best of them" in this case can take out 30+ experienced warriors with their bare hands.
  • Gai from the Getter Robo Go manga is not only beefy and strong, but both the Getter Robo's main mechanic and pilot of Getter 3. He's also maybe a little too obsessed with the Getter Robo. He can be seen wondering aloud if you can truly fall in love with a machine.
  • Jack Rakan in Mahou Sensei Negima!, though he does his very best to pretend to be a moron. In his own words, he's more experienced than smart.
  • Marco Owen from King of Thorn. A Tattooed Crook and extremely badass Action Survivor, he's also a brilliant computer hacker. In fact, that's what got him sent to prison in the first place — it wasn't until after he was behind bars that he started pumping iron and taking levels in badass.
  • Soul Eater. Franken Stein. PhD. Vivisected his best friend on a regular basis. Has issues differentiating between reality and his own stream of consciousness. And is the absolute hands-down strongest fighter for Shibusen when he is in his lucid phases.
    • Though he was anything but lucid when he sliced Medusa in two. In fact, his madness at that point is the reason why he was capable of striking even when the snake's arrow was at his neck.
  • The eponymous protagonist of Riki-Oh can punch through concrete walls, shrug off blades and bullets and kill men and beasts alike bare-handed, yet he shows a lot of knowledge of history and human anatomy.
  • The Major from Ghost in the Shell has a first class military cybernetic body and is a master of both martial arts and tactics. She is also probably one of the best hackers in the entire country, if not even the world.
  • In Pokémon: The Legend of Thunder!, Buson fits this, even though he's only shown to fight using his Pokémon. He's incredibly muscled, keeps showing off his powerful arms, and despite his crude sense of humor is the techie in his two-man army. His production sketch has a note saying he's a tanuki personality (his partner is a kitsune), and tanuki are known for being clever and sneaky while giving the impression of stupidity.
    • And in the Pokémon Adventures manga, there's Wild Child Sapphire, who can easily kick ass with her own bare hands. Despite the fact that she can't read, helping her father out in his studies means that she has a near encyclopedic knowledge of Pokémon biology and ecology. She gets a great moment in proving it too — before challenging Gym Leader Roxanne, all trainers must take an aptitude test. Although Sapphire has a bit of trouble with the longer words, once she gets past those she gets a perfect score on the first try.
  • Leo Regulus from Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas may be Leo Aiolia's expy, but he has something Aiolia never had: brains. Not only is he a "fighting genius", he's a child prodigy (it was implied that he was one in general) and can outwit much older and more experienced opponents even without his considerable strength. Too bad his ultimate technique backfired on him because his body couldn't handle it.
  • Akisame from Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple: master martial artist, but he's more famous for his artistic and intellectual abilities than for his ability to make men five times his size his bitch in less than a minute. His artistic ability is world famous and all of his works of art are priceless. He learned how to hack computers in less than five minutes by watching someone else do it. He regularly builds training machines by hand that would put the Saw movies to shame. He once built a Buddha statue by hand from the wreckage of a radio tower in the middle of a fight to use as a weapon (his opponent, an artist himself, was amazed), and singlehandedly designed a workout regimen that brings out 100 percent of the human body's muscular potential. He can throw stone Buddha statues around like paper weights, but he much prefers meditation, learning, and philosophy to kicking ass, probably because he's already mastered the art of whoopass.
  • Kai Hiwatari from Beyblade is the muscle hound of the Bladebreakers, and gifted.
  • One Piece:
    • Whitebeard is the World's Strongest Man and yet able to match wits with Sengoku during the Marineford battle. If it wasn't, the Whitebeard pirates and their allies would have been finished earlier than expected. In fact, it seems that both Sengoku and Whitebeard consider the other their Worthy Opponent.
    • Montblanc Noland a highly skilled botanist, doctor and explorer. Who can also effortlessly behead a giant snake and equal Jaya's strongest warrior in a duel.
    • In the Straw Hats Pirates Franky, Sanji, and to a lesser extent Chopper also qualify:
      • Franky is a comically large-fisted cyborg, and also a massively talented engineer who designed and built the Straw Hats' current ship, the Thousand Sunny, as well as fully functioning robotic prostheses out of random junk from scratch.
      • Sanji is part of the "Monster Trio" (the three inhumanly strong Straw Hats) alongside Luffy and Zoro. He is also the smartest of the three, a skilled tactician whose strategies and planning have saved the entire crew on numerous occasions (such as in the Little Garden, Alabasta, Water 7, Enies Lobby abd Zou arcs). Luffy himself actually calls Sanji a genius after one of his more brilliant plans in Enies Lobby which involved rendering an entire battle fleet useless.
      • Chopper is a Genius Ditz version of this due to his naivete and innocence. Chopper can be massive and monstrous and is a doctor with extensive knowledge of human anatomy.
    • Many villainous examples (often overlapping with The Chessmaster) e.g Kuro, Don Krieg, Crocodile, Enel, Rob Lucci and Doflamingo. However, Break Out Villain Charlotte Katakuri is absolutely the best recent example, he will take any advantage in battle, deny the Transformation Is a Free Action rule and also aid his family with his Devil Fruit powers as well giving Luffy a brutal beatdown.
  • Lordgenome of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. Genetic engineer responsible for the entire Beastman race. Master hacker. Thousands of years old, with an immense and thorough knowledge of the Anti-Spirals and the workings of Spiral Energy. Considers using his mecha in a fight to be holding back. Trashes mecha several times larger than himself. Catches on fire from sheer awesomeness when he's about to beat the crap out of things. Instead of being vaporized by a big bang, he turns it and himself into a giant drill. Yeah.
  • Admiral Dozle Zabi of Mobile Suit Gundam is a brilliant commander and a seven-foot badass who pilots a walking Weapon of Mass Destruction (the infamous Big Zam). His Dying Moment of Awesome remains one of the most epic moments in the franchise.
    • Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin amps up both sides: on the bruiser side, when the car he was on with his brother Sasro explodes he kicks the door out of the hinges and emerges with Sasro's body in his arms demanding to know who dared, and during the battle of Loum he bends a metal tube with a single hand by accident; on the genius side, he was at one point the headmaster of Zeon's military academy, when Garma led the cadets into attacking the Federation garrison he correctly determined that Char was the real culprit and had manipulated his brother, before Loum he sees that the other generals and admirals are intimidated by the Federation's overwhelming superiority and motivates them with a simple reminder that if they lose they'll be all hanged as war criminals, and is the one who came up with the idea of the mobile suit and its tactical doctrine to begin with. While the tactic used to decimate the Federation fleet at Loum was Gihren's plan and the trap was prepared by Kycilia, Dozle was the one who made it possible to begin with and correctly applied it.
  • Lionel "Pops" Racer is a designer and builder of cutting-edge racing cars and engines, with the Mach 5 being his crowning glory. He was also a wrestling champion in his highshcool years and has only gotten bigger and stronger since then, as many thugs have found out the hard way.
  • Some of the men who practice at Hiyori's dojo in the Kotoura-san anime are college graduates, coming from prestigious universities like Tokyo University and Harvard.note 
  • Sanada Kazuki from Hajime no Ippo is a boxer and a medical student who uses his extensive knowledge of the human body as an advantage in the boxing ring.
  • In Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's, Jose, the member of the Three Nobles of Yliaster who represents Aporia's elderly self, is both the strongest and smartest member; he has the knowledge and experience of Aporia's full lifetime, and in one memorable scene, was able to lift Sherry's D-Wheel with her on it. (The purpose of the scene was to give a display of how dangerous he was.) Later, when he, Placido, and Lucciano assume their true form as Aporia, they become even smarter and stronger, for the most part.
  • In Hunter × Hunter, two members of the Genei Ryodan fit the bill. Uvogin looks like a savage brute but he can fight quite intelligently when he faces skilled opponents. Case in point: he defeats three skilled assassins after they have already paralyzed him from the neck down. Franklin looks like a Frankenstein's monster but he's a Gentle Giant (to the other members of the Genei Ryodan anyway) who is able to mediate between the others (no small feat since they are all vicious criminals) by using logic whenever they are about to come to blows.
  • Kasumi Kenshiro from Fist of the Blue Sky is often found dressed like a nerd, with his nose buried in a book, but he is also the successor of Hokuto Shinken.
  • Attack on Titan has several characters that turn out to be this.
    • Reiner Braun is implied to be this. He's primarily known for his Heroic Build and incredible strength, but Bonus Material reveals he frequently plays chess with Armin.
    • Annie Leonhart is mostly known for her exceptional skills as a fighter, but also possesses keen insight into human nature and is quite the skilled investigator while working for the Military Police Brigade.
    • The Beast Titan combines inhuman strength with a genius intellect, with its official stats giving it an 11/10 in Intelligence.
  • Cage Of Eden:
    • Yarai Kouichi plays this straight as he is probably the strongest survivor but his understanding of evolution rival's Maria and he also demonstrates knowledge in several fields such as geology and the Glasgow Coma Scale
  • Balsa from Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit is highly intelligent as well as a capable warrior.
  • Tokyo Ghoul:
    • Koutarou Amon is primarily known for his Heroic Build, but graduated Valedictorian from the Academy. His investigative talents were honed by his mentor, Mad Scientist Kureo Mado.
    • Yukinori Shinohara is another man known primarily for his Heroic Build and incredible endurance, being a highly-decorated veteran in the field. But he briefly retired to work as an Instructor at the Academy, and demonstrates his considerable intelligence while explaining various complex subjects to his Book Dumb partner.
    • The legendary Hero Killer, the One-Eyed Owl. It is primarily known for its incredible strength, and normally appears as a massive armored creature that bulldozes through anything in its path. But beneath that armor, it's actually The Chessmaster and a highly-acclaimed novelist. A glimpse of one of its private hideouts reveals a sizable library, and Franz Kafka appears to be a particular favorite.
  • Sailor Moon examples:
  • Dr. Slump: Robot girl Arale is mainly known as a Cute Bruiser and Pint-Sized Powerhouse who can split the planet in half with one punch. But she is also an android with a computer brain, can easily solve advanced math problems better than a computer, and is apparently able to perform surgical operations (successfully removing a frog's appendix). However her strength is emphasized much more than her brain during the series.
  • Also Izumo/Gyu-oh from the anime InuYasha qualifies for this. By day he is a pure human, and showing his great intelligence. He was able to make copies of the sacred jewel (even if as strong as the original were not), and has designed a brilliant plan to lure Inuyasha and his friends into a trap. Even Miroku, who is also very intelligent, has this plan does not recognized. At night he turns into a demon, however, and is then very strong. In the fight against Inuyasha which is strong even for a half-demon, he was a powerful opponent.
  • The Seven Deadly Sins: Escanor, bearer of the Lion's Sin of Pride and one of the titular sins, bounces between this and a Guile Hero. This is because his power levels vary from pathetic weakling at night to one of the strongest characters in the story as noon approaches. Even in his weak form, he is a cunning and dangerous foe. When his friends found him in the story, it was night and they were chased by two powerful demons. He hides his friends and stalls the demons by getting them pissed drunk and plays opossum until the sun began to rise, and so did his strength and pride. After enough time, he challenged one to combat, beating him with no effort and the female demon who tries eating his soul finds it too spicy and is burned alive from the inside. Later, when two other demons had manipulated another friend to attack him, he made a declaration to destroy those who prey on people's emotions that on the surface seems to be towards his friend, as his friend is telepathic and just tried mind raping Escanor. Instead, his powerful attack doesn't hit his friend but the demons, giving an opening for Captain Meliodas to attack them.
  • Tsukasa in Dr. Stone is a textbook example of this trope. The man fights a pack of lions while unarmed and wins, AND he's smart enough to always remain one step behind Mad Scientist Senku (and that's after Senku realizes Tsukasa's intellect and hastens his own actions in response). But the single moment that best simultaneously displays his brute strength and genius is when Tsukasa threatens to snap Senku's cervical plexus with his bare hands, then proceeds to do just that.
  • Amshel Goldsmith from Blood+ is a clever researcher who has achieved excellent results in the field of genetic engineering. And he is also the oldest (and probably strongest) chevalier of Diva.
  • In Claymore is Clare. In addition to her superhuman strength, she shows that she can also be very clever.
    • Ophelia is number four in the organization, and powerful enough to defeat an Awakened Being, who was once in a single-digit rank. At the same time, however, she is also quite intelligent.
    • The male Awakened Being in the mountains of Paburo is marked as very cunning in the rating of the organisation.
  • As a wrestling manga, any particularly smart character in Tiger Mask is one by default:
    • Giant Baba was noted as the physically strongest fighter of the Japan Wrestling Association. He was also a master technician that could not be fooled.
    • Tiger Mask himself, most notably through the complex yet brutally effective techniques he came up with.
    • Mr. Question may have been the physically weakest wrestler in the series (owing to him being seventy years old), but his intelligence was evident in his ability to dissect, learn and/or counter any move he saw and make it look easy.
    • According to Mr. X, Technician Miracle 3 knew all the strengths and weaknesses of the other challengers for the NWA Maskmen Championship through his sheer smarts and having seen them fight at least once. He proves it when he counters the Fujiyama Tiger Breaker in a way Tiger Mask had not been ready for even if he had reversed all other counters until then, the method also requiring exceptional strength.
      • His anime counterpart, Tiger the Great, is just as smart and even stronger, and is only defeated due him being unable to anticipate just how terrifying Tiger Mask would become after getting unmasked during a match.
  • As the sequel to Tiger Mask, Tiger Mask W has its fair share too:
    • The new Tiger Mask is physically almost as formidable as the original, and he too came up with complex yet brutally effective Finishing Moves and a variant of the second to counter the one counter, one that led to him being able to use the full power variant due the victim having suffered a Game-Breaking Injury from getting out of the variant.
    • Tiger the Dark, the one who came up with the counter for Tiger Mask's first finishing move.
    • Fukuwara Mask pulled off the Charlie Brown from Outta Town trope successfully in a series where the trope regularly fails because of it.
    • Tiger the Great the Third is Tiger the Great's Legacy Character. His plans and strategies are top notch, and in combat he's The Juggernaut.
