Story

Kinnikuman (anime)

21st Chojin Olympics Arc

After Warsman's match against Teapackman, he follows his victory by slighting Pentagon as he ignores his offer of a handshake, in advance of their upcoming match. [5] Later, the semi-finalists are required to participate in a ceremony, in which they ride horses around a race-track - they all finished at the same time (save for Kinnikuman). [6] Pentagon then fights Warsman in the 21st Chojin Olympics Quarter Finals, 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. [7]

Dream Chojin Tag Arc

His cousin is Devil Chojin Black Hole, and the two of them participated in the Dream Chojin Tag Arc as the 4D Killer Combo. Despite possessing these near invincible techniques, he does not use them during his fight with Warsman, implying he might not have mastered them during the 21st Chojin Olympics.

The 4D Killer Combo await the Muscle Brothers by standing on the ceiling above the first ring, and - as the Muscle Brothers enter - drop down upon them as a pre-emptive attack. [8] Kinnikuman strikes at Pentagon, who retaliates with a Flying Body Attack, but Kinnikuman throws him out of the ring when a 4D Warp is used (allowing Black Hole to suck Pentagon into his body). This counter allows Pentagon to appear behind Kinnikuman and strike him in the face with an Elbow Bat. [8]

Kinnikuman ignores Kinnikuman Great's attempt to tag in, despite bleeding profusely, and this allows Black Hole to swap places with Pentagon. Black Hole throws Kinnikuman to the ropes; Kinnikuman Great reassures Kinnikuman they are equals, but Kinnikuman is determined to prove himself to what he considers his master. He still tags in Kinnikuman Great, despite his reservations, who uses a martial arts kick to attack Black Hole. They exchange several blows, but Kinnikuman Great temporarily incapacitates Black Hole with a Rolling Savate. [8]

The other teams leave their rings, so that they may watch the match. [9] Black Hole catches Kinnikuman Great off-guard and throws him to the ropes, in an attempt to engage in a German Suplex, but Kinnikuman Great counters with a Reverse Kick. Kinnikuman worries about loses the spotlight, as he starts to argue with Kinnikuman Great and trust breaks down, and this leads to the 4D Killer Combo gaining an advantage. As the 4D Combo use 4D Warp again, Great throws Kinnikuman out of the ring so that he may strike Pentagon midair. [9] This fatigues both Pentagon and Great.

Kinnikuman locks Black Hole in a Boston Crab, while Pentagon uses Chronos Change, which reverses their positions and allows Black Hole the upper hand. Each move Kinnikuman uses on Black Hole becomes countered with Pentagon's Chronos Change, and - as Great comes to the defence - Pentagon uses Time Stop to freeze Great and stop him with a Pile Driver. They stop Great with a 4D Cross. [9] Kinnikuman tries to counter with a White Hole, but Black Hole's body is now double-layered. [10]

Kinnikuman tries to fight alone, using a Body Slam on Pentagon, but Pentagon uses Chronos Change to switch Kinnikuman's place with Black Hole. 4D Combo tries to use a 4D Cross on Kinnikuman, but he counters with advice from the voice of Great. Kinnikuman forcibly spins the star on Pentagon's face, making him turn back time and enabling Kinnikuman to use a Pile Driver attack. Great tries to escape through Black Hole, grabbing his mask in the process, but Black Hole closes access to his dimension. [10]

Black Hole and Great fight within the dimension, and Great uses a Kinniku Buster to defeat Black Hole, while Kinnikuman uses the Kinniku Driver to defeat Pentagon. They combine their attacks into a Muscle Docking, which allows them to win the match. [10][11]

Kinnikuman (2011)

4D Killer Combo vs. Jack Chi

During the match against Jack Chi, it is revealed that even light itself was pulled into Black Hole's Extreme Black Hole, and this leads to him communicating psychically with Pentagon. He then uses a Fourth Dimension Cross, which causes him to turn into Pentagon. [12] Pentagon attacks Jak Chi with Angel Wing Claws, which burns Jak Tea's flesh about his face. [13] Pentagon attacks with a series of blows, ending with Space Shuttle and Space Falcon, and Jak Chi tries to retaliate again with a Faucet Crusher, but Pentagon stops it with a Chronos Change. This allows Jak Chi to take monumental damage. Pentagon then swaps places again with Black Hole. [13] Black Hole finishes off Jak Chi with a Fourth Dimension Kill. This defeats Jak Chi. [13]
