Puri-Puri Man (プリプリマン) is a chojin whose appearance is based off the posterior.
Literally, a giant butt. This character actually made a cameo as an Akuma Chojin in the original Kinnikuman manga and appeared briefly in the opening titles of Kinnikuman. He was not involved directly in a story-line until the anime Kinnikuman Nisei.
As a Devil Chojin, he is brutal and ruthless, and with his physical characteristics, he is able to use all kinds of disgusting techniques, which he enjoy deploying to see his enemies suffer. He is a rather persevering and optimistic, since he isn't ashamed about his butt-head.
At first, Puripuriman was presented with a humanoid body wearing a pair of pants and shoes, as well as a couple of gloves. His most stricking characteristic was his butt-shaped head, were he only has a pair of visible eyes. His thigh-like arms are as strong as legs, and he specializes in a fart-like poison gas attack.
Later in Kinnikuman Nisei, his arms grew out like thighs, making his entire upper body resemble his lower body, as well as now wearing a "mask" that covers his mouth. Despite this, he is still portrayed as his original design in his appearance in the TV Show.
He learned how to wrestler since he was a child, and was later on life when he realize that his face was a butt. Instead of getting depressed, he used that fact in his advance, and so, he made all sorts of disgusting techniques, entering in the ranks of the Devil Chojins.
The name "Puripuriman" appears as one of the contestants on the Olympics, despite been an Evil Chojin. He doesn't appear in a single panel.
Puri-Puri Man (literally "angry smelly man")'s name was listed as the 51st place in the train tossing event in the 21st Chojin Olympics Arc. He finally debuted in one panel of the manga when Buffaloman's Akuma Chojin attacked Kinnikuman.
As a member of the d.M.p, Puripuriman had fought against Gazelleman and Terry the Kid, defeating both of them. Next is Seiuchin, who he manage to incapacitate with his Gas Attack, to then finish him with his Butt Driver. But right at that moment, Mantaro Kinniku arrives and face him.
At first its seems like Puripuriman was going to win again, but Mantaro, using his own farts, manage to disorientate Puripuriman, grapping him and defeating the evil chojin with a Kinniku Buster.
