Warsman in the anime

Warsman (ウォーズマン) is a character from Yudetamago's manga and anime series Kinnikuman and it's sequel Kinnikuman Nisei. He is primarily voiced by Hori Hideyuki.


Warsman is a Robo Chojin (ロボ超人, Cyborg Superman) and possessed retractable iron claws called Bear Claws (ベアークロー). He also possesses excellent artificial intelligence and calmly judges his opponents so as to defeat them within 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, his inner computer begins to shut down and smoke emits from his body. Originally he was Zangyaku Chojin (残虐超人, Brutal Superman), and he even put Ramenman (known as "The Most Brutal Chojin") in a vegetative state. After the Chojin Olympics, he becomes a Seigi Chojin (正義超人, Justice Superman).


warsman's killer smile

He typically has no facial expression, but when he faces a formidable opponent a creepy smile known as the Warsman Smile (ウォーズマンスマイル) appears on his face.

As a Robo Choujin his body is constantly meeting with problems. Because of this poor treatment despite his popularity, Warsman has gained sympathy from readers and become even more popular well into Kinnikuman Nisei.

When he first appears, the only sound that comes from his mouth is a creepy breathing (Ko~Ho~ (コーホー), similar to that of Darth Vader from Star Wars. In the anime, Warsman's voice has a robotic effect.

Using both sets of Bear Claws (increases his Chojin Power to 2,000,000), Warsman jumps double his usual jumping height (increases his Chojin Power to 4,000,000), and then triples his spinning speed (increases his Chojin Power to 12,000,000), and launches himself towards his opponent.

Pallo Special The End (パロ・スペシャル ジ・エンド)
A more painful version of the Pallo Special where while performing it, he forces his opponent face down onto the mat.
Fighting Computer (ファイティング・コンピューター)
Warsman’s inner computer that allows him to pinpoint and exploit any weakness his opponent may have (even if they aren’t aware of the weakness). It also allows him to devise brand new techniques on the spot when needed. The computer can only last for 30 minutes, after which he overheats and white smoke emits from his body.
In the anime , Warsman don't have this weakness (the fight with Kinnikuman at the final of 21th choujin olympics, have a duration of more than hour and half, and the inner computer malfunction are induced by the Kinnikuman's Kajiba no Kuso Djikara).

Wars Leg Breaker (ウォーズ・レッグブリーカー)

Siberian Snow Storm
An anime only attack that was used against Bulldoggy and Big Magnum in the final arc of the anime (before the Survivor Match for the Kinniku Throne). Warsman was fighting Bulldoggy during the 5-on-3 tag match when he got bitten from behind by one of Bulldoggy's fangs. As Warsman tried to tag in Brocken Jr., Bulldoggy applied a body scissor to decrease his mobility and Big Magnum jumped in to finish Warsman off. Warsman quickly stabbed Big Magnum in the chest with his Bear Claws and picked him up over his head. Warsman then proceeded to Cossack Dance his way to the ropes and jumped out of the ring into the clouds (the ring was on top of a mountain range), sacrificing himself to defeat his two opponents.



Born half Robot and half Choujin in a poor Russian family, Warsman had a very rough childhood. Having been teased and ridiculed for his robotic face, Warsman’s dream was to grow up to protect poor children from bad people. He grew up getting into fights with various bullies. The SKGB recruited Warsman to do intensive training in the Wolf Room (Волк Комната), and during this period he befriended Kommandas. Months later, Warsman discovered that the SKGB was training Chojin to use them as robotic Chojin soldiers capable of destroying an entire army; the wrestling training being only a ruse, and with the success of their first soldier, Warsman, they plan to mass produce him. Angry, Warsman attacks SKGB members and flees, and they send their second Robo Chojin to kill him-- Kommandas, who was transformed into a cold-hearted fighting machine. Warsman didn't want to harm his friend, but Barracuda tells Warsman that is no longer the Kommandas he knew and that he must be merciless. Warsman then killed Kommandas with his Bear Claw and the Pallo Special. Barracuda put him through hellacious training in order to exact his own personal revenge on Kinnikuman, changing him into a blood-thirsty beast. The only thing that could calm Warsman down and keep him in check was to see Robin’s mask. Also, focusing on the intense training so much caused Warsman to only be able to communicate through a creepy breathing.

21st Chojin Olympics

Robin's revenge was going to take place at the 21st Chojin Olympics: The Big Fight, which Kinnikuman was going to be competing in. Warsman’s first opponent was Teapackman whom he easily defeated and killed with his Screw Driver technique. In the next round he went up against Pentagon, and although Pentagon’s aerial techniques worked on Warsman for awhile, Warsman eventually tore of Pentagon’s wings and eviscerated him with his Bear Claws. In the next round, Warsman was to fight the “Most Brutal Chojin” Ramenman in a “Battle of the Beasts”. The match was a Steel Cage Casket Death Match. The winner was the first to throw his opponent out of the cage and into a coffin. It was during this fight that Warsman’s fighting computer was first mentioned. Though he gave it his all, Ramenman just couldn't gain an advantage over Warsman. Warsman threw him out of the cage and through a table. He then got on the top of the cage and jumped towards Ramenman with his trademark Screw Driver technique, but Ramenman blocked it with the ring bell. He thought he had trapped Warsman's Bear Claws, but Warsman burst through the bell and stabbed Ramenman in the temple, turning him into a vegetable. He then threw Ramenman's limp body into a coffin, winning the match. Before his finals match with Kinnikuman, Barracuda requested it be a Mask Removal Death Match (if a member of Kinnikuman’s clan reveals his face he must end his own life). During the fight, Natsuko’s kind words and Kinnikuman’s refusal to kill him made him turn to the side of good and destroy his Bear Claws (though they show up again in the next story arc). After 30 minutes Warsman’s computer shutdown and Kinnikuman defeated him with a Kinniku Buster.

Seven Devil Chojins Arc

He and Robin then became Idol Chojin and joined in the Individual Battles during the Devil Choujin Arc. Warsman went up against their leader, Buffaloman. And although Warsman was able to break off one of Buffaloman’s Long Horns, Buffaloman eventually killed him after a succession of Hurricane Mixers. Warsman was revived (along with Robin and Wolfman) by a dying Buffaloman, who became good after fighting Kinnikuman.

Golden Mask Arc

During the Golden Mask Arc, Warsman was taken out pretty early. During the fight with Planetman, Planetman made the faces of Warsman, Terry, Robin, Brocken, Bibimbap, and Kinnikuman’s parents appear on his body, causing Kinnikuman to not want to hit those parts. Warsman sacrificed himself by telling Kinnikuman to punch through his face, which was over Planetman's heart. After the fight, the remaining Devil Knights ventured into Warsman’s unconscious body and the Five-Story Ring matches took place. During the match against Asuraman and Terryman, the fight temporarily takes place on Warsman's heart. Terryman uses Buffaloman's arms to shock Warsman's heart back to life, though he remains unconscious. Later, when Geronimo sacrifices himself so that the other Idol Choujins can escape, Warsman's tears flush him out with them. However, Geronimo still dies when Warsman, Kinnikuman, and the others each try to sacrifice a bit of their power for him, but his human body won't accept it. When Ashuraman mocks Kinnikuman for being late for their fight, Warsman tries to attack him but is easily put in the Ashura Buster. Before Ashuraman can finish the technique, though, Kinnikuman arrives and saves Warsman.

Warsman Unmasked


Dream Chojin Tag Arc

Like the other Idol Chojins, Warsman then has his Friendship Power stolen by Ashuraman and Sunshine, causing him to turn on Kinnikuman when the Universal Choujin Tag Tournament comes along. He instead teams up with Robin to form the Choujin Master/Student Combo (超人師弟コンビ, Choujin Shite Konbi). The first match is against the Hell Missionaries (Neptuneman and Big the Budou). During the fight, Warsman is hit with Neptuneman's Quarrel Bomber clothesline, sending him into the ropes and, on the rebound, hit with the Double Leg Suplex, which knocks his mask off. It is after this that Neptuneman reveals his quest to collect the masks of the greatest Choujin. Warsman puts his mask back on and continues to fight, but unfortunately the shock from the Double Leg Suplex knocked out his sight and he is soon killed by the Cross Bomber and his mask is added to Neptuneman's cape.

Survivor Match for the Kinniku Throne

When Mixer Taitei separates Kinnikuman's Kajiba no Kuso Djikara from his body, he also separates his soul and sends it to the Choujin Graveyard. While in there, Kinnikuman runs into Warsman and learns that Choujin can return to life if they collect 4 Life Spheres (from doing manual labor) within 6 months. Warsman offers Kinnikuman his spheres and helps him escape. During the semi-finals against Team Zebra, Dr. Bombay helps Warsman come back to life by implanting a Heart Crystal into him. Unfortunately, Warsman escapes before Bombay can completely restore his memory. He arrived in time to save Meat from The Manriki, and then took his place in the fight. Because he hadn't regained all of his memory, he couldn't remember his own fighting style or even how to use the Bear Claws (he tried throwing them at one point). With the help of Robin Mask pretending to be Barracuda again, he regains his memory and fighting style and defeats Manriki with a Palo Special. Warsman trained in a bamboo forest outside of Nara for his finals match against Mammothman and (with hints from a hiding Neptuneman) learns how to defeat the Big Tusks. However, before Warsman can make it to Osaka Castle, Mammothman ambushes him and takes him out. As he crawls on, Geronimo finds him and takes him to a hospital, taking his place in the finals. He shows up along with Terry, Ramenman, Wolfman, Jesse Maivia, and several other Seigi Choujins to cheer on Kinnikuman during the final match with Kinnikuman Super Phoenix.

Chojin Olympics: The Resurrection Arc


In Kinnikuman Nisei, Warsman has assumed the identity of Chloe (クロエ) (Lord Flash in the English dub) and serves as Kevin Mask’s trainer and second, first appearing as his three-legged race companion. At the end of the Chojin Olympics: The Resurrection, his mask broke and revealed his true identity.

Ultimate Chojin Tag Arc

He later stows away on the "HMS Kevin" time ship in order to compete in the Ultimate Chojin Tag Tournament. He teams up with Teddy Bear Chojin Michael (posing as fellow Teddy Bear Belmond) as the Hell's Bears.
