Neptuneman is a character in the Kinnikuman (anime) series. He later reappears in the manga-only arc of Kinnikuman Nisei.

About

{Neptuneman is a character in the comedic superhuman wrestling comic Kinnikuman. Originally appearing as a villain, like many such characters he turned over a new leaf after losing to Kinnikuman.

Appearance

Neptuneman is a blond moustached buff man wearing a red vest and fur-trimmed boots bearing a resemblance to Hulk Hogan. He even used an Axe Bomber-type clothesline (which Hogan was more known for using in Japan) as his trademark move.

Personality

At first, Quarrelman looked down on those who were weaker than him. He even left his match against Robin Mask because Robin Mask was too weak for him. Driven to suicide, Quarrelman leapt into the Thames River, but he was saved by Neptune King and became Neptuneman. With this rebirth, Neptuneman started a Mask Hunt to steal the masks of unworthy Chojin and re-destribute them to more worthy Chojin, i.e. his followers.

After his loss to the Machineguns, Neptuneman honored them by sacrificing his life to stop the Perfect Chojin invasion. Neptuneman would go on to help Kinnikuman and the Justice Chojin on several occasions.

Despite this, Neptuneman remained loyal to the Perfect Chojin even though The Man imprisoned during the Perfect Origin Arc because The Man thought Neptuneman was influenced by Justice Chojin. In fact, Neptuneman believed that the Perfect Chojin needed to change, and that Kinnikuman is the right man for the job.

Relationships

Quarrelman had a rivalry with Robin Mask, but Robin Mask was too weak for him. This rivalry was reignited by the match against the Chojin Master/Student Combo.

Neptuneman led the Perfect Chojin vanguard with Big the Budo. He didn't tolerate the failures of Screw Kid and Kendaman, so he and Big the Budo punishes them.

After his loss to Kinnikuman, Neptuneman would go on to sacrifice his life for the Justice Chojin. After his rebirth, Neptuneman would even join Kinnikuman's team during the Survivor Match for the Kinniku Throne tournament finals as The Samurai.

Because of his illegal reincarnation, Chojin Enma sent Omegaman Dexia to hunt him down. And for his insubordination by signing the peace treaty between the three factions, Neptuneman was imprisoned. Luckily, Peek-A-Boo freed him in time so he can help encourage Kinnikuman. Despite this, Neptuneman and Peek-A-Boo would cheer on Nemesis during his match with Kinnikuman.

Abilities

Neptuneman can control electromagnetic forces through the power of his Neptune Mask. This power can be sealed away by sealing a nearby Apollo Window Lock. He can also channel Hardness Level 10: Diamond Power on his arm in order to make Mask removal much easier.

During the Ultimate Tag Tournament In Nisei, Neptuneman kept his youth through extensive dieting and a strict training regimen. He even gained the ability to create Optical Fibers by eating strange crystals.

History

Kinnikuman

Prehistory

Neptuneman's true name is Quarrelman (喧嘩男 Kenkaman), (he was also called Street Scrapper in the US), and he is a Perfect Chojin from England. He was an incredibly powerful wrestler, so much so that he found it impossible to find opponents who could challenge him. Quarrelman even told Robin Mask that he (Robin) was too weak to fight him.

He tried to end his life by jumping into the River Thames, but in doing so found the place where Neptune King, another Perfect Chojin, had been in hibernation. Neptune King had escaped from the world years ago after Chojin Wrestling began to become less about battle and more about tournaments. He longed for the days of Death Matches, which Quarrelman found fascinating. Neptune King gave Quarrelman the Neptune Mask and rechristened him Neptuneman, and he himself wore a mask and became Big the Budo. Both masks gave them Magnet Power (transferred straight from The Earth itself) and increased their strength many fold.

Dream Chojin Tag Arc

Prehistory

(More to Come)

First Round

The Chojin Master/Student Combo enter the third ring, where the Hell Missionaries wait for them. [1] Like the other Idol Chojins, Warsman has his Friendship Power stolen by Ashuraman and Sunshine. [2][3] Robin and Warsman work together to battle Big the Budo, until Warsman gets knocked into the ropes, and he rips the ropes to free himself and attempt Tag Formation A, which features Robin Mask taking Warsman into a Tower Bridge and spinning him, so that he may use a Rolling Bear Claw. This allows him to slash at Neptuneman's chest. [1]

Warsman watches the match from the side, as Robin Mask takes the lead. [4] After Neptuneman steals Warsman's Bear Claws, he attempts a Palo Special. Neptuneman counters, before impaling Warsman on his spike, and then using a Nose Dive and a Double Leg Suplex. [4] This knocks off Warsman's mask, causing Robin to come to his defence. [5] Neptuneman reveals he intends to steal Warsman's mask for his collection, but Warsman snatches it back and puts it back over his face. [5]

During the fight, Robin recognised Neptuneman as Quarrelman, the Chojin who had deemed him unworthy years earlier. Robin outed Quarrelman and Quarrelman then revealed his and Budō’s plan to steal the masks of the strongest Chojins and then give them to their minions (thus giving them their powers). Though Robin and Warsman tried their best (Robin even used version 1 of the Robin Special on Budō), they just couldn’t beat the Hell Missionaries and were both unmasked.

The Hell's Missionaries then use a Cross-Bomber. [5]

This knocks off Warsman's mask, allowing Neptuneman to add it to his collection. Warsman is cradled in Robin Mask's arms, while he asks who is laughing at his face, and - as Robin reassures him that no one is laughing - Warsman dies in his mentor's arms and leaves Robin weeping in grief. [5] Warsman's corpse is then tossed from the mountain by Big the Budo, but caught by Kinnikuman Great. [3] Robin is placed down on the ground and his face was fully revealed for the first time. Kinnikuman then gave Robin a towel to put over his face, as the match is declared in favour of the Hell Missionaries.

Semi-Finals

During the match-up lottery for the semi-final placements, the 20 Million Powers are matched with the Hell Missionaries. [6] The first match is between the Muscle Brothers and the Stray Devil Chojin Combo, and the 20 Million Powers stay at the edge of the ring to act as spotters. [7] At the end of the match, after the defeat of the Stray Devil Chojin Combo, the Hell Missionaries attack Sunshine, only to be stopped by the 20 Million Powers. [8] They then allow the Hell Missionaries to attack, as the dolls - created by the Stray Devil Chojin to steal the justice chojin Friendship Power scatter, and thus creates animosity between the justice chojin. [9]

The semi-final match against the Hell Missionaries is a simple barbed-wire cage match, but also a mask-removal death-match in which Mongolman must bet his mask. Buffaloman is thrown into the barbed wire by Neptuneman, who then switches with Mongolman, who is at a disadvantage from being unable to use the rope for his techniques. After being thrown into the screen cage, Mongolman rebounds with a kick. [9]

After a series of blows, the 20 Million Powers seem to have the upper hand. [10] Mongolman begins to suffer flashbacks within the ring, as the cage reminds him of his match against Warsman, and Buffaloman is unable to tag in, as both of the Hell Missionaries attack him. The spirit of Warsman helps Mongolman. [10] Buffaloman is tagged in and uses a Buffalo Avalanche Drop. [11] He proceeds to attach his Long Horn, and uses a Hurricane Heat. Mongolman is tagged into the match, but subject to a Cross Bomber. [11]

Neptuneman uses his Magnet Power in retaliation. [12] This heals the wounds of the Hell's Missionaries, and they try continuously to attack with Cross Bombers attacks, only to fail. Due to the Iron Sweat on Mongolman and Buffaloman, they are dragged towards the Hell Missionaries by their magnet power, and they almost defeat the 20 Million Powers with a Magnetic Storm Driver. [12] The 20 Million Powers are then further attacked by a magnetic suplex. [13] They are soon entangled in the magnetic barbed wires, as they regain their Friendship Power, and the Justice Chojin regain their power of friendship overall. [13]

The iron sweat breaks from Mongoman and Buffaloman, and Buffaloman uses his Longhorn Train. [14] This increases the power of the Hell's Missionaries, who use a Silhouette Body Press, and - after a series of blows - are thrown from the war-cube. The Hell's Missionaries summon thunder to increase their electrical power. [14] Their Lightning Sabre attack renders Buffaloman and Ramenman immobile, and Buffaloman uses a fragment of Iron Sweat to draw Neptuneman away from Mongolman. [15]

Buffaloman collapses against the mat, defeated by the Light Sabres. [15]

Mongolman carries Buffaloman on his back, as they try again for a Longhorn Train, but they are defeated by a Magnetic Storm Crash. [15] Neptuneman attempts to unmask Mongolman, but Mongolman continues to fight back, even though his body has been magnetised. [16] Mongolman's mask is then removed by a Cross Bomber. [16] It is revealed that Mongolman was actually Ramenman, who returns to a comatose state and is rendered immobile without his mask. [17] Ramenman reveals that Doctor Bombe created the mask to give him back his mobility and speech, and his mask is removed permanently by Neptuneman. [17]

Finals

The match takes place with their competitors surrounding the ring, so no one is allowed escape except through death.

Terryman struggles to keep pace in the match, but Kamehame's spirit tells him that he should try to emulate him less and be his own person, and so he starts to use his own techniques and style again. [18] They begin to work well together as a team, until the cursed canvas comes to life with the spirits of the Seven Akuma Chojin they destroyed in an earlier arc. [19] The Machineguns (still believed to be the Muscle Brothers) start to fail once more, when - after sowing seeds of doubt about Kinnikuman Great II's identity - Kinnikuman and Terryman start to fight among themselves, with Kinnikuman demanding to see his face. [20]

When Terryman sacrifices himself for Kinnikuman, it reignites their Friendship Power. [20] The two then manage to win the match, after a series of events and some flashbacks to Ashuraman's childhood, with a Muscle Docking technique. [21] The final match is against Hell Missionaries; the ring is surrounded by swords, which will pierce anyone thrown out of the ring or who tries to escape. [22] The match will be a three-round match, with each round lasting ten minutes until the final round, which will have no time-limit attached. [22]

During the match against Neptuneman, some of Terryman's blond hair is exposed. [23] More and more of Terryman's face is exposed, as he panics at the idea Kinnikuman may reject him on learning the truth, and thus leaves himself open to attacks. [24] With only seconds to spare, Terryman is defeated with a Cross-Bomber in the first round and his face is revealed. [25] Terryman has his stars returned to him by Asuraman, who rejects how he gave up earlier, and - thus due to not having technically quit his match - is still eligible to compete in the tournament, as he never technically lost. [26]

They gain an advantage in the second round, and Kinnikuman - now their friendship is renewed - tears his white vest to offer a makeshift bandage to Terryman. [27] They later manage to trick their opponents by switching places underneath the ring and swapping masks, and this lets them gain the upper-hand. [28] Terryman is then knocked out of the ring onto the spikes, where he is incapacitated. [29] They work together, after Terryman recovers to win with a Muscle Docking. [30]

The Machineguns win the third round when both opponents faint. [31]

After the fight, Neptuneman flew into the sky and self-destructed, signalling for the Perfect Chojin army to retreat.

Survivor Match for the Kinniku Throne Arc

With the help of his Perfect Chojins, Neptuneman is revived illegally and escapes from the Chojin Graveyard. He arrives at the end of the Team Super Phoenix vs. Team Soldier battle and collects the ashes of Ataru Kinniku. He then hides in the bamboo forest in Nara Prefecture where Warsman is training and helps him in his fight against Mammothman with advice. He appears again in the shadows during Geronimo's match against The Omegaman and saves him from the Omega Catastrophe Drop by blowing some of Ataru's ashes into the ring. When he tries it a second time, Geronimo refuses his help, fearing that Omegaman and the Chojin Enma would learn his true identity.

He returns as The Samurai to help Kinnikuman and Robin Mask in a 3-man tag match against Kinnikuman Super Phoenix, Omegaman, and Mammothman. When the Samurai's Muscle Prophecy page is burnt his costume goes away and he is changed back into Neptuneman. Super Phoenix eventually ties him up underneath the string connected to his real page and places a candle on his back. He breaks free anyway, breaking the string and burning his page, in order to take Kinnikuman's place in the Omega Catastrophe Drop, after which he disappears. His soul then helps Robin, Ataru, and Gero free Kinnikuman's Fire of Inner Strength and defeat Super Phoenix. The four of them are later revived by Kinnikuman's Face Flash.

Kinnikuman (2011)

Perfect Origin Arc

During the beginning of the arc, Neptuneman shows up to sign the treaty between the Justice Chojin, Devil Chojin and the Perfect Chojin as the Perfect Chojins' representative. As Ashuraman and Neptuneman had helped out Justice Chojin in their own special way, it made perfect sense to sign the treaty.

For most of the arc, Neptuneman is jailed by the Perfect Large Numbers for committing treason against Perfect Chojin. Peek-a-Boo frees Neptuneman just in time for Kinnikuman's match against Nemesis. Just as Kinnikuman is about run away from his destiny, Neptuneman gives Kinnikuman a pep talk with the help of Peek-a-Boo. Kinnikuman's kindness helped out another Perfect Chojin. Kinnikuman must fight Nemesis!

Both Neptuneman and Peek-a-Boo are confident that Kinnikuman can convince Nemesis to change the Perfect Chojin world for the better. It's time for a revolution for the Perfect Chojin world. The current rules are holding the Perfect Chojin back. Neptuneman admits that Silverman was right all along. Neptuneman tried to start a revolution, but it failed miserably. An outsider like Kinnikuman could be the change that the Perfect Chojin needed.

Despite this encouragement, Kinnikuman refuses. Neptuneman brings up his victories against Ramenman and Robin Mask. However, Kinnikuman thinks that those victories were pure flukes. Kinnikuman brings up how Nemesis defeated Ramenman and Robin Mask in fair fights. Kinnikuman is just a phoney.

Irritated by Kinnikuman's self-loathing, Neptuneman places him into a choke-hold. Neptuneman asks if Kinnikuman's victory against him is a fluke. Kinnikuman says that it was. After Neptuneman slaps Kinnikuman aside, Neptuneman decides to kill Kinnikuman with a Quarrel Bomber. Kinnikuman dodges the Quarrel Bomber with ease. However, Neptuneman does another one, but with his Diamond arm. In self-defense, Kinnikuman decides to charge at the Quarrel Bomber and activates his Fire of Inner Strength. As Neptuneman says, "[A person] can leave the ring, but the ring can never leave [them]."

And with that, Neptuneman leaves. Kinnikuman thanks Neptuneman for the pep talk as he returns to his restoration capsule. During the match against Nemesis, Neptuneman and Peek-a-Boo cheered on Nemesis.

Omega Centauri's Six Spear Arc

During the meeting with The Man, Neptuneman and Nemesis reveal themselves to tell that Kinnikuman must fight for the future of mortal Chojin.

Upon seeing Ataru, Nemesis exchanges a few pleasant words with his grand nephew, observing that he's just like Tatsunori Kinniku. However, Ataru corrects Nemesis. Ataru did run away from home and all. In a sense, Ataru's like Sadaharu. History does repeat itself.

The battle against the Gods isn't being waged by one group. It's being waged by all mortal Chojin. And if they lose, they will be wiped out. Neptuneman doesn't know where the Gods will strike next, but he understands that the Gods will come after the Man's Capillaria Ray crystal piece soon. The group must keep that piece out of the Gods' hands no matter the cost.

It's not as simple as that. As the Five Evil Gods still possess their pieces in some fashion, they will also be targets for the God of Harmony's faction. The God of Brutality told Ataru all about the God of Harmony's plan in advance. As a result, Meat states that the Fated Princes have become leads for Kinnikuman's group as they've survived their matches. Aristera reminds everyone of the Six Spears' quest to find Magnet Power and Friendship Power. Even if Aristera knows about Friendship Power, he and the other Six Spears can't activate it all because of their grudge towards The Man.

Kinnikuman states that Aristera can activate Friendship Power. He's seen how the Six Spears have fought and knows that he and Aristera aren't so different after all. The Six Spears only fought for the sake of their friends and their home. Kinnikuman brings up his signature catch phrase and shakes Aristera's hand, confusing the Omega Clan head in the process. Kinnikuman states that he's doing the handshake of friendship, a basic greeting of Justice Chojin. Now that Aristera's come to understand Kinnikuman, he can understand the truth behind Friendship Power.

The Man admits that he and the other Perfect Origin haven't understood Friendship Power completely and admits that Aristera can bring out Friendship Power to its limits. The Man reveals the Mortier de Pileur, explaining that it extracts power from the Earth and turns it into Chojin power. It can be reversed so that it injects Chojin power back into the planet it's resting on. The Man promises to give Aristera the Mortier de Pileur as a way to atone for his past crimes against Omega Centauri. In order to get the Omega Centaurians' help, The Man must solve their planet's problem first. In response, Aristera and Pirateman swear allegiance to The Man.

Kinnikuman Nisei

Prehistory

For over 30 years Neptuneman lived in England in peace as Quarrelman. But after the Time Chojin attack, he returns to active duty as Neptuneman and sneaks aboard the H.M.S. Kevin Mask time-ship with Mantaro and the New Generation

Neptuneman enters the base of the Time Warp 8. [32]

He explains that he is seeking a tag-partner to enter the Ultimate Chojin Tag Tournament, and decides that Seiuchin will be his partner. [32] Seiuchin explains he came to the past with no intention to fight, but Neptuneman insists that Seiuchin the strongest of the New Generation, based off his prior observations. [33] Seiuchin decides to follow Neptuneman, and says goodbye to his friends. [33] They train together in the Okutama Mountains. [34]

Neptuneman ties Seiuchin to the ceiling of a cave for six hours, as part of their training, and tells him the fable of The Walrus and the Carpenter. This helps to encourage Seiuchin to assume a more bestial form. [34] Check Mate enters to plead with Seiuchin to return to his previous docile state, but Seiuchin and Neptuneman use a Cross Bomber together upon Check Mate, which removes his face. [35] They later proceed to the entrance ceremony of the Ultimate Chojin Tag Tournament, where they carry a coffin with the unconscious Check Mate. [36] Neptuneman then puts a hood over Seiuchin to keep him controlled. [37]

As "The Hell Expansions", the two collect the skin off of their opponent's faces instead of masks.

Battle Royale

Due to too many teams competing, a battle royale is announced. [38]

Seiuchin and Neptuneman sit on the side-lines, as they decide to let the other teams tire themselves out before joining the battle. [38] Eventually, Neptuneman joins the fray by grabbing Chaos Avenir by his head. [39] Chaos breaks free and knocks Neptuneman away with a kick, before asking Mantaro to throw him with a rolling clutch hold, and uses this momentum to deliver a German suplex on Neptuneman. [39] Chaos then has a panic attack, requiring his inhaler to calm down his symptoms. [40]

After Neptuneman rises, he grabs Chaos by his hair and kicks aside Mantaro. [41] Seiuchin breaks free of his chains and then prepares to use a Cross Bomber with Neptuneman. [41] Seiuchin remove his hood, while Neptuneman reveals he no longer needs his magnetic power, as he instead uses optical fibres. [42] Mantaro tosses Seiuchin's hood into the ring to block the move and protect Seiuchin. Seiuchin then uses a body-press to knock down Chaos, while Neptuneman uses a Double-Leg Suplex on Mantaro. [42]

The countdown starts to ring out for the Muscle Brothers Nouveau, and Chaos is tempted to stay down, until - on the count of nine - Neptuneman forces Mantaro upward. [43] Neptuneman proceeds to use the Quarrel Special. The Hell's Bears then intervene to stop Neptuneman, who kicks them out of the ring and uses a Quarrel Ride. [43] The Hell Expansions try another Cross Bomber, but Seiuchin is conflicted. [44] They eventually use the Cross Bomber, but are stopped midway by the Fireball Flying Fogey Squad, who save Mantaro by placing themselves in the Cross Bomber's path. [44]

This ends the battle royale, as the Fogey Squad's loss allows for the correct number of finalists. [45] Neptuneman adds their two faces to his collection, but must snatch the face of Barrierfreeman from Seiuchin, who tries to eat the face. [45] Seiuchin proceeds to insult the Time Warp 8, and Neptuneman feeds him fluorite to help increase the power of their optical-fibre powered Cross-Bomber. [46]

First Round

The Super Trinities enter from the Blue Corner at Kuramae Kokugikan, after the defeat of the Choppers. [47] Jade had dedicated the fight to his Lehrer Brocken and carried a photo of them together on his person. Scarface enters in his original gangster disguise, while seemingly ignoring Jade and finally shaking off his disguise for his true appearance. [48] Jade and Scarface argue over who is to fight first, before it is settled on Jade. He fights first against Neptuneman, who captures him in his "Referee's Lock-Up". [48] Neptuneman lets him go, on seeing that he has one vital weakness (later revealed to be the lack of his Red Rain of Berlin), and lets Seiuchin take over the match instead. [49]

Seiuchin lands a series of attacks, until Scarface encourages Jade to counter. Jade lands a temple kick on Seiuchin, but Seiuchin attacks with a Cyclone Ocean Kick, and - after succumbing to a Side-Suplex - Jade is forcibly tagged out by Scarface. Neptuneman then swaps places with Seiuchin. The two exchange blows, until Scarface traps Neptuneman in a triangle hold and Jade comes in with his Red Rain of Berlin. [49] Due to Brocken Jr's amputated arm, he was unable to teach Jade the technique, thus he is now unable to use the technique. [50] Jade tries again, but Seiuchin and Neptuneman combine a drop-kick to break Jade's hand. [50]

A photograph falls from Jade's pocket, revealing that Brocken Jr. has a prosthetic arm in this timeline. [51] This knocks Jade's confidence, leaving him without a signature technique, and enables Seiuchin to get several violent blows against Jade. Once Jade is downed, Scarface forcibly tags in with his foot. [51] Scarface uses his Madness Mask to increase his power.[52] Scarface treats Jade roughly, before launching into an attack on Seiuchin, and kicks Jade out of the ring.

Scarface uses an Acapulco Roll, before throwing Seiuchin by his tongue. This is followed by a Swallow Tail. Scarface reveals that his motivations have changed since going into the past, and now that he wishes to win the tournament to use the Trophy Bulbs to become a Complete Chojin. He thus intends to fight alone. [52] Scarface is able to take on both Neptuneman and Seiuchin alone, while continuing to alienate Jade. [53] He delivers a Dragon Suplex to both of the Hell Expansions, and his brutal attack of them triggers memories from Jade. [53]

During Scarface's onslaught, Chaos notices that Neptuneman has stepped aside and is watching Seiuchin being beaten. [54] Finally, the dents made by Scarface in Seiuchin's body extend in a porcupine-line fashion. They are used to knock down Scarface, who attempts to use his Ultimate Scar-Buster, but Seiuchin breaks free with his protrusions and bites into Scarface's throat. [54] Neptuneman reveals he needed Seiuchin to be badly beaten in order to complete the transformation into a Perfect Chojin, while Seiuchin drinks the blood of Scarface. [55]

The Hell Expansions start to attack Scarface together, gaining the upper hand. This triggers another memory from Jade, who remembers Brocken Jr. teaching him a technique in place of the Red Rain of Berlin. [55] Jade protects Scarface from a tag-team move by the Hell Expansions, which leads him to use his newly remembered technique against Seiuchin: Brocken's Return. [56] He proceeds to talk Scarface down from his Madness Mask, bringing him back to his senses. [57] Jade uses a Beefcake Hammer against Neptuneman, and launches a series of attacks against him, before combining his Brocken's Return with Scarface's Swallow Tail to create the Red Rain Tail. [58]

This damages Neptuneman's sides but exhausts Scarface. Jade attempts to use his Brocken's Return on Seiuchin, but Seiuchin's peaceful side tries to come out and causes Jade to hesitate. [58] Seiuchin uses this to his advantage, as he uses a Mad Bite on Jade's leg (the one used for his Brocken's Return). [59] He uses a Mask the End with Neptuneman, which breaks Jade's helmet and causes him to go blind. The Hell Expansions use their Optical Fibre power, followed by their Optical Fibre Cross-Bomber, but Scarface jumps into the fray and takes the attack on Jade's behalf. This removes his face, adding it to Neptuneman's collection. [59]

Jade tries to continue fighting, with Mantaro's support, even as his friends advise otherwise.[60] He drops his photograph of Brocken Jr., which Neptuneman tramples, and Jade tries to attack in a rage, but every attack is dodged or countered. He uses his hearing to compensate for his sight, and attempts a Brocken's Return, but merely knocks off some of Neptuneman's studs from his jacket. Jade then falls to the mat, where he drops a letter from Dorothy and Suzie that was written to Seiuchin. [60] He tries to appeal to Seiuchin, who hesitates, and the Hell Expansions use their Optical Fibre Cross Bombe again, which knocks the helmet from Jade (his face saved due to Seiuchin's hesitation. [61]

The gong is rang and the match called in the Hell Expansions' favour, and Jade and Scarface are taken to hospital. [61]

Quarter-Finals

This was until the team faced off against the "Hell's Bears", which consisted of Belmond (Warsman) and Michael (Mammothman). Seiuchin fought Mammothman, and in the middle of the match, returned to his senses and betrays Neptuneman. However, Mammothman betrays Warsman and sides with Neptuneman, which leads to both of them knocking off Seiuchin's face with an Optical Fibre Cross Bomber and defeating Warsman.

Before the semi-finals, Satan appears, and Neptuneman and Mammothman reveal their apparent alliance with the Time Chojin (Thunder and Lightning), throwing a spider spawned by Satan at Suguru, which enters his chest and forms into an hourglass.

Semi-Finals

The Nova Hell Expansions attack the Five Disasters with elbow drops, as they try to enter the ring. [62] They continuously strike their backs like a drum, until Lightning tries to counter and is thrown onto the ring in Tournament Mountain, followed by Thunder being blown into the ring by Mammothman's Ear Gust. The Nova Hell Expansions land on the ring, where Neptuneman throws his cape of faces onto the ceiling. The sides of the War-Cube are replaced by walls covered in swords. [62]

Neptuneman begins the match with a Cross Bomber against Lightning. [63] Lightning catches himself on the ropes, and counters an oncoming Quarrel Bomber with a kick to the back of Neptuneman's head. The gong is then officially rung. Mammothman and Thunder collide, shaking the ground. [63] Neptuneman and Lightning tag into the match, trading places with Mammothman and Lightning. [64]

They exchange a series of blows, until Lightning gains an advantage and breaks Neptuneman's left arm. [65] Just as the Nova Hell Expansions attempt an Optical Fibre Cross Bomber in response, Lightning uses his power of Acceleration to escape. [66] Lightning then uses a Double Neck Cut. [66] He escapes another attempt an Optical Fibre Cross Bomber, by forcing them to curve the optical fibres. [67] The Five Disasters then slam both of the Hell Expansions into the ring, and follow with Acceleration to toss both of the Hell Expansions onto the swords outside of the ring. [67]

The Nova Hell Expansions stand again, and Neptuneman uses an Ignition Crash on the Five Disasters. [68] Neptuneman attempts a Quarrel Press, but misses, and follows with a Chojin Hanging on Lightning. This is follows by Mammothman's Nose Freezing. [68] Due to physics, this temporarily stops their Acceleration from working and thus is cannot be used. [69] Later, the Five Disasters then use their exotic matter to revert Mount Fuji to the state of an active volcano, which causes debris and boulders from the eruption to rain down on the Nova Hell Expansions. [70]

Mammothman uses his nose to block further debris from striking Neptuneman. [71] Two rocks strike his legs, which knock him down onto the canvas. This is followed by a Hot Rock Gyro from Lightning, and then the Five Disasters team up for a Giant Beat Cremation. [71] The Five Disasters continue to use tag-team moves on Mammothman, as he rises during the countdown. [72] Neptuneman uses his Magnet Power Comeback to stop another Giant Beat Cremation. [72] He follows with a Quarrel Sword Bomber, while the Five Disasters return to using their Acceleration, but this is stopped short by another Quarrel Sword Bomber. [73]

Neptuneman criticises the Five Disaster, as - even though they are all Evil Chojin - he cannot support their lawless nature and breaking of rules, and he goes to Mammothman's defence. The Five Disasters try to use their Death Watch Branding on Mammothman, but Neptuneman stops them with an Iron Bat Squeeze. [73][74] Mammothman confronts Neptuneman, as his actions go against the teachings of a Perfect Chojin, in that they should not help anyone (not even a team member). [74] He uses a Blind Alley Ear against Thunder.

Mammothman eats the volcanic debris, which helps increase his magnetic power, and - with Neptuneman - engages in a Cross Bomber Resurrection. [74] The attack knocks off a piece of Thunder's mask. [75] It fails to rip off Thunder's mask or face, as it is revealed Mammothman purposely failed the attack in order to destroy Neptuneman's arm, as he seeks to maintain the Perfect Chojin teachings, even if Neptuneman does not. [76]

Thunder then takes out Neptuneman's Achilles heel, and a Lion Comb down Neptuneman's back. [77] A Lion Fan takes out Neptuneman's other arm. [78] Lightning uses his Boiling Sickle to knock the studs off from Neptuneman's shirt, which attach to his own costume, and then uses a Double Leg Suplex, which cracks off Neptuneman's mask. Mammothman forfeits the game and leaves the ring. [78] Neptuneman finally realises the meaning of Friendship Power, but the Five Disasters use a Perfect Decay Finale on him. [79]

This knocks down Neptuneman, as Mammothman leaves with Phoenixman. [79]

He struggles to his feet, as he realises the error of his ways and returns to being a Justice Chojin. [80] He tries to attack, but Lightning reveals that he has a heart defect and will die regardless, and proceed to kill him with a Death Watch Branding. The match is called in the Five Disasters favour, but they flee the ring with Neptuneman's body towards the smouldering Mount Fuji. [80] At this time, Chaos Avenir climbs Tournament Mountain with the device left by Warsman that should go to Neptuneman. [81]

The Five Disasters toss Neptuneman's body into Mount Fuji, but Chaos uses the last of his exotic matter to stop Neptuneman from falling into the lava. [82] Chaos uses his exotic matter to revert Neptuneman back to a perfect state, and jams the device into Neptuneman's chest, which fixes the heart defect. [83] He sends Neptuneman back to the future, so that Neptuneman - as a Justice Chojin - can teach a new generation. [84]

Fighting

Techniques

Neptune Mask (ネプチューンマスク)

  • The source of Neptuneman's Magnet Power. It takes magnetic energy from The Earth itself and transfers it to Neptuneman's body. Locking a magic keyhole in the Earth's crust is the only way to turn the mask off.

Diamond Arm
