Nenchaku

Nenchaku

(ねんちゃく), also known as Nunchuck Nick in the English dub, and Sticky in the English manga[1]: Nenchaku is the leader of the Assassination Corps. He is a man with spikey black hair, an "X" made from tape on his forehead, two large shoulder blades, and a large fur collar on his coat. He has both pointed teeth and ears similar to OVER's.

Nenchaku uses stop "STOP Shinken" (STOP真拳; "Fist of Stop"), a fighting style that uses duct tape to bind or stop an opponent. Occasionally, Nenchaku makes the tape razor sharp, so that it can kill his opponents rather than just hold them in place.

On an interesting note, Tsuru Tsurulina IV has commented that Nenchaku is even stronger than OVER and Halekulani, the two strongest of the Four Heavenly Kings. This is further proven by the fact that he was given a gold medal to start with during the New Emperor Playoffs, while the two kings were given silver medals.

One of the newcomers of the "New Empire Playoffs", Nenchaku attacks Bo-bobo, Don Patch, and Tokoro Tennosuke immediately as the playoffs officially start. At first, he attempts to stick them in place multiple times, but when this doesn't work, he finally melts them by sticking tape to their inards! However, the melted trio "fuse" together into several odd fusions, each one more powerful than the last. Eventually, the rebels return to their old selves, leaving them vulnerable to Nenchaku's attacks once more. Bo-bobo creates "Bo-bobo TV", an attack where Nenchaku is exposed to whatever horrible programming the rebels can think of! At the end of the attack, Bo-bobo draws power from the ratings percentage (0%) and defeats Nenchaku, eliminating him from the competition, and giving the rebels entrance to the Playoffs.

Purupu's Subordinates

Lamune

Lemon Fizz

Lamune

(ラムネ, Ramune)/Lemon Fizz: A green haired woman, wearing orange armor with a pink dress underneath. She is one of Purupu's two subordinates.

Lamune is first seen flying towards Iguana Town, alongside Purupu and Kinen. After her initial introduction, she and her comrades have shaved the residents of Iguana town within a matter of minutes and captured one of the locals: Sparkman, who tells them that he is not the one person they are looking for. Lamune then accuses him of playing ignorant, since they caught him. As Purupu examines the photo of the person they're looking for (a normal human), Lamune mentions that they look alike, but aren't the same. When Purupu realizes that Sparkman is not the same person as the one in their photo, Lamune gets rid of their Hair Hunter subordinate for capturing the wrong person.

After the confusion involving two tennis players and Kinen trying to calm Purupu is cleared up, Lamune tells Don Patch (who is dressed as a burglar, under the alias "Love Hunter Y") that she noticed him sneaking around and tells him to state his business, while he tries to open Bo-bobo's afro like a safe.

As Purupu introduces himself and his subordinates to the rebels, both Don Patch and Bo-bobo give her love letters, but she rips them up right in front of them without even opening them. When Hatenko gives her one, she blushes and reads it, only to learn that he just wants her to return his copy of Saint Seiya Volume 15 (Bo-bobo Volume 5 in the anime) that he lent her a year ago, much to her disappointment. As Lamune and Kinen charge towards the rebels, Don Patch (as Love Hunter Y) puts on his glasses and delivers a powerful punch, sending her flying into the roof of a nearby house.

Lamune can be seen at the end of Shinsetsu Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo, alongside Purupu and Kinen. The three are attending Tokoro Tennosuke's Maruhage Reunion.

Out of the three of them, Lamune is the only one to show any sort of power. In the manga, she easily forced her hand through one unlucky soldier's body, while in the anime, this was changed to her being able to fire blue energy blasts from her hands.

  • Trivia:
    • Her name is the same as a Japanese lemon soda.
    • Her boss claims that she is stronger than Gunkan, yet loses easily to Don Patch.
    • She may have a secret crush on Hatenko, taking into account that she only accepted his "love letter".
    • Lamune is not seen besides Purupu or Kinen during the New Emperor Playoffs arc. Both made it to the finals, and it can be assumed that she either got eliminated early, or chose not to participate. This turns out to be good luck on her part, as the two are later sacrificed to the Reverse Maruhage Empire (though they are both revived later).

Kinen

KinenKinen (Anime)

(禁煙, Kinen) also known as Chocochocotto (チョコチョコット, Chokochokotto)/Chocolate Munchie: Kinen is one of Purupu subordinates. In the manga, he was a walking box of cigarettes who's name was "No Smoking" in Japanese, with the words "Mild Eight" written vertically on his left side and "Super Right" written on his right side. In the anime, he was made into a tamer box of chocolates.

Regardless of either version, he was seen at Iguana Town alongside his two partners after the massacre. He possesses a deep hatred for Don Patch, who at one time snitched him out at school for doing bad things. Despite his desire for revenge, Don Patch defeats him with no effort. Kinen is later used as a sacrifice by the Reverse Maruhage Empire after being defeated by Crimson and Love. He returns to normal after the reverse empire is defeated.

Kinen, alongside Lamune and Purupu, is seen in the last chapter of Shinsetsu Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo, attending Tokoro Tennosuke's Maruhage reunion.

Kuunyan is the master of Parachute Shinken (パラシユ-ト 真拳; "Fist of Parachute"). This technique can be used to create parachutes wherever he wants. The parachute's can be used as a very effective handicap on his enemies; on the plane, he originally attached parachutes to Bo-bobo's team, and was planning on letting the intense air currents blow them off the edge. He can also use the parachutes' as a shield for incoming projectiles.
