Background

A Hair Hunter base that is centered in an amusement park that grew from a field of chopsticks planted by Bo-bobo.

After he is defeated, Tennosuke eventually joins Bo-bobo's resistance. Although one would figure A-Block is the most powerful of the Maruhage Empire's bases just based on the alphabetical order alone, it is actually considered one of the weakest. Z-Block is really the most powerful of the lettered blocks since the power scale actually goes backwards. In fact, even other incarnations of A-Block are thought to be more powerful, such as the A-Block of the Former Maruhage Empire and the A-Block of the Neo Maruhage Empire.

The base did not last long after its defeat at the hands of Bo-bobo. After the battle, Tennosuke left to return to his old job at the local grocery store, leaving the base without a leader. The base was then toppled again by Hatenko. Sometime later, the base was finally closed down. In the end, A-Block was torn down to make way for the Former Maruhage Empire's new, bigger base, Neo Hair-Hunt Land MAX.

SixU-kun

(ロク, Roku)/(Uくん, U-kun)/ U-ie: Guardian of A-Block's coffee cup ride, he was formerly a "U" that was in love with Don Patch (Patchimi). He tries a brain-washing ability to make his former "girl-friend" his again using hand signs of consecutive numbers, yet all it does is turn him into a goat. He is defeated when Bo-bobo proves that "3+3=8", not 6 (this was explained through some sped-up advanced math). He later briefly appears as a participant in the new emperor playoffs.

Tomohiro

Tomohiro

(トモヒロ)/Spikey: An hair hunter taken hostage by Tennosuke that is meant to lure Bo-bobo into the base. As punishment for likely betraying the general, Tomohiro is given the choice to either be forced to eat spaghetti & meatballs or eat rice and curry. Bo-bobo tries to make him choose rice and curry, he goes with the spaghetti instead. It is assumed that Tomohiro is well known by Bo-bobo even though this is the first time he is seen in the series. He seems to have completely given up his hair hunter ways as he was seen outside with Beauty while she was playing with one of the cats that had fell on him from an early event, and he just sits there with no harm done, declaring that he wants to open a pet shop.

Kegirl

Kegal

(ケガール, Kegāru), also known as Dribbles the Clown in the English dub: The "Tourguide of Dreams" (夢の案内人) of A-Block Amusement Park, who wears a pink koala costume.

When the rebels arrive at the park's front gate, Kegirl shows up to greet them. However, before they're allowed to enter the park, Kegirl presents a video message by Tennosuke. While Beauty and Heppokomaru are distracted by Bo-bobo and Don Patch's hijinxs, she tells them to pay attention to his announcement.

When Don Patch notices that there's not enough potatoes in his curry, he demands an explanation from Kegirl, who apologizes. Not satisfied with her apology, Don Patch takes her mask off, revealing that she's a "specialty education mom" ("rent-a-mom" in the English dub), who forces Don Patch to study. As the rebels head inside the park, Don Patch asks her if he can go too, to which she says no.

During a brief intermission of the rebels' battle with Ferris Wheel, Kegirl is seen giving out balloons to the park guests.
