Sneagator (スニゲーター) is a character from Yudetamago's manga and anime series Kinnikuman.

About

Sneagator was another of the Devil Knights, and the teacher of the Seven Devil Chojin. He had the ability to shape-shift into any form ranging from a claw to a snake to a shoe. Generally, his form was reptilian, and wore sneakers, or had laces somewhere on it. The only exception to this was his last form, the Claw form. He faced Kinnikuman and was smashed into the mat in the end. His original form was the foot of a T-Rex.

He makes two more brief appearances near the end of the series, one escaping from Hell and being apprehended by Omegaman, and another at the very end, inexplicably revived and cheering on Kinnikuman after his Face Flash. Afterwards, he appears with the other Devil Knights when they take on the Perfect Origin. His opponent was Perfect Seventh, Ganman. Despite his many tricks on Ganman, he gets killed with no remorse.

His grandson is Maxman, one of the villains in Kinnikuman Nisei.

Story

Kinnikuman

Golden Mask Arc

Kinnikuman attends a chojin physical with his colleagues. [1]

The Chojin Power of his colleagues is halved, with only his power left intact. It is revealed that the golden mask on Planet Kinniku has been stolen, and the Silver Mask travels through space into Kinnikuman's hands, as a group of six masked men descend on Kinnikuman. [1] Only one of them has the true Golden Mask, and each says they will go to a specific location to wait for Kinnikuman; if he battles them and wins, they will give him their mask, and their tournament will end when he finds the true Golden Mask. [2]

The first match is against Sneagator in the Budokan Stadium. [3] The ring seems empty, until Sneagator appears to turn all the chairs into alligators and the confetti into lizards. [3] Sneagator bites through the ropes, which turn into snakes and attack Kinnikuman. [4] He then bites down onto Kinnikuman's right shoulder, before using a Hell Space Walk, which is a powerful sneaker kick.

Sneagator then bites into Kinnikuman's torso, before using another sneaker-kick and biting him in three separate places. At this point, Meat realises the animals are illusions caused by a light projector. Sneagator attempts to bite off Kinnikuman's head, but Kinnikuman stops him by holding onto the sides of his jaws, before using a Mouth-Ripping Kinniku-Buster, and covers the light projector with Sneagator's blood. [4]

Sneagtor then sheds his skin and returns in a tortoise form. [5] He uses a Strong Body Press on Kinnikuman, but Kinnikuman uses a Muscle Curtain, and Sneagator sheds his skin again. Kinnikuman gets behind Sneagator and rips the fins from his head, but Sneagator turns again into a chameleon to camouflage into his environment. Kinnikuman allows himself to be injured, so he can use his blood to force Sneagator to become visible. [5] Sneagator then turns into a dinosaur hand, but Kinnikuman gets him in a Bear Hug. [6]

This allows him to see Sneagator's true face, which is on one of his fingers.

He uses a Front Suplex to then defeat Sneagator. [6]

Kinnikuman (2011)

Perfect Origin Arc

Sneagator shows up, alive and well, during the Devil Knights' invasion of the Chojin Graveyard. He enters a portal that somehow lead to the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy. Confused, Sneagator wonders why he was sent there instead of an arena containing one of the Perfect Origin. A voice belonging to a Perfect Origin tells him that the portal doesn't usually lead here and reveals that he was the one who made it in the first place.

A hooded figure rises out of the portal and sneak attacks Sneagator, who asks if he is one of the Perfect Origin. Flinging off his disguise and confirming Sneagator's suspicions, the figure properly introduces himself as "Perfect Seventh" Ganman and orders Sneagator to grovel before him. Ganman follows up with a headbutt and talks down to Sneagator, saying that he's just like any ordinary Chojin, but with the unique trait of being Goldman's pupil.

Insulted, Sneagator asks why that's a big deal. Ganman repeats that Sneagator is a student of Goldman, a disgusting traitor of the Perfect Origin. Goldman left the Perfect Origin millennia ago, so he sent worthless inferior Chojin like Snegator to fight the noble Ganman on his behalf. Ganman's insulted by this, thinking that the Devil Chojin are anklebiters sent out on a fools' errand. To rub salt on Ganman's wounds, Goldman has decided to wreck the Chojin Graveyard, the sacred home of the Perfect Origin for millions of years.

Ganman will never forgive Goldman at all for being a two-timing, double-crossing bastard. Ever since he saw the future from the day Goldman and Silverman left the Chojin Graveyard, he knew that the Perfect Origin will face those inferior Chojin in combat. Thus, he suggested that the Perfect Origin should purge the inferior Chojin with the help of the Perfect Large Numbers at the Perfect Origin meetings.

Sneagator retorts that the Devil Knights don't need to see the future to know that. General Devil's Seven Devil Chojin are already keeping the Perfect Large Numbers busy. Ganman retorts that the Perfect Origin have been lagging behind because Goldman would always shoot down his advice. Ganman doesn't mind that inferior chojin are staying as inferior chojin, though. There are certain Chojin whose powers go beyond normal inferior chojin. And seeing as Sneagator's one of Goldman's best students, Ganman's been keeping an eye on him because of that potential. Sneagator's honored by that, but Ganman orders him to be silent, for Sneagator is inferior filth. 

Inferior Chojin under supervision are still inferior Chojin because they are mentally undeveloped trash. To that end, Ganman hated The Man's stance of letting worthy irregulars join Perfect Chojin, arguing that all inferior Chojin should be purged instead. Ganman already saw his upcoming fight against Sneagator a long time ago with his Cyclops ability. Keeping the world's status quo is a goal that Perfect Chojin seek to strive for, thus the irregulars must be punished with death. 

Sneagator hates Ganman's smug, self-righteous attitude, adding that all Devil Chojin can't stand that all. He'll enjoy killing Ganman right here and now. Ganman quips that was supposed to be his line and thanks Goldman for connecting the Chojin Graveyard and Earth. The Perfect Origin won't need that tool Mirageman's permission. Ganman reiterates that he came to Italy to purge the irregulars. Sneagator realizes the Perfect Origin are now out and about because of Goldman's actions. Goldman and the Devil Knights' actions of invading the Chojin Graveyard have opened seal to their forbidden door. 

Noting that they don't have to fight behind closed doors, Sneagator announces that the Devil Knights and Perfect Origin can fight in the open instead and goes for a dive kick on Ganman, but Ganman grabs him by one of his legs with ease. Ganman chastises Sneagator for being so eager and approves of the all out war between the Devil Knights and the Perfect Origin. However, the match between Sneagator and Ganman needs a certain arena. Sneagator's current behavior is why he'll be called inferior until the end of time. Ganman orders Snegator to look down in the nearby area, noticing a pair of humans wondering about the sudden seat stands. 

This will be Ganman's first public purge on the surface world because it's exciting to show it to a crowd of humans and inferior Chojin. Sneagator demands to know where's the essential component to their fight, a Chojin wrestling ring. To that question, Ganman throws Sneagator aside and straightens the Leaning Tower, revealing a ring in the back of the tower ready for the rumble. The humans are frightened and confused by that. 

Sneagator asks why straightening the Tower revealed the ring and Ganman fully explains the history of the Leaning Tower. It is a knockoff of the Tour Parfait, the headquarters of the Perfect Origin during their time on Earth eons ago. Tour Parfait was the place Goldman, now known as General Devil, once trained. The ring resurfaced when Ganman recreated the memories of the straight Tour Parfait with the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Ganman lands in the ring, causing some humans to back away from his intimidating presence. The main reason Ganman came to Italy is to bring back Tour Parfait as the Perfect Origin's headquarters and replace the shattered Chojin Graveyard. However, Sneagator will shatter those dreams in a flash and confronts Ganman in the ring. The humans are now excited to watch since they're not being attacked by the Chojin. Ganman encourages them and warns them not to watch ringside, as he doesn't want any casualties. 

As the human audience for the match gathers, he insults them and puts them in the same boat as the inferior Chojin. Sneagator hates that Ganman enjoys talking to himself. He notices that General Devil did fight in this ring, motivating him to fight Ganman harder. The General Devil's honor is on the line for this match!  

Ganman tells Sneagator that he's powerless here, but Sneagator tells him to shut up with a bite to the arm. Sneagator even announces his title to show that he means business. Ganman flash-steps behind Sneagator to avoid the bite. Sneagator tries biting Ganman again, but Ganman successfully avoids each bite without any trouble. Ganman announces his presence and lariats Sneagator.  

The reason why Ganman can avoid Sneagator's bites is because of his Cyclops ability. He explains how the Cyclops ability works in combat to predict an opponent's movement in detail. While inferior Chojin to make a big show with their moves, Ganman prefers to strike first and gloat later. 

Sneagator ignores that explanation and attempts to gouge Ganman's eye out, but Ganman says that countless Chojin have gone after that point countless times and counters with his Elk Horns, smashing Sneagator into a pulp. Ignoring the Elk Horns is why those inferior shortsighted Chojin have lost to Ganman, completely epitomizing their mindset. Noticing the humans audience's comments, Ganman belittles Sneagator. Upset at Ganman, Sneagator hates him for mocking the bond General Devil and Sneagator share as teacher and student.  

Through sheer determination, a wounded Sneagator forces the Elk Horns open, but Ganman uses his Elk Horn Scissors technique in response, splattering more of Sneagator's blood over the ring. Ganman is in the set up for his finisher, the Elk Horn Compressor, and pulls it off. Luckily, Sneagator already escaped, already changed into his Aliigator Snapping Turtle form. 

Ganman tries his Elk Horn Scissors again, but fails due to the hard shell. The Cyclops ability can't keep up if Sneagator constantly changes. After a quick explanation, Sneagator kicks Ganman in the face and slams into Ganman with his Turtle Kill Shell technique. Sneagator follows up with a bite to his shoulder.  

Still arrogant despite the assault, Ganman points the weakness of Sneagator's current form: his soft underbelly! Ganman takes advantage of this and punches Snegator real hard in that region. Sneagator quickly sheds that form and wraps around Ganman as a giant python. Ganman quickly slams an already shed Sneagator snake skin in confusion, as Sneagator's already one step ahead of Ganman with his Komodo Dragon form. Sneagator continues the assault on Ganman and goes for a poisonous bite at Ganman's blood. According to an audience member, the Komodo Dragon is the fiercest reptile, eating horse and deer for its meals.  

Ganman knows about the weakness of the Komodo Dragon: a punch right at the mouth. Ganman tells Sneagator not to get ahead of himself and slams a toothless Sneagator into the mat. Relying upon these transformations is admission of natural weakness in Ganman's opinion. Ganman doesn't need to transform as he's fully confident in his original form. Transforming is a dirty tactic in Ganman's book. As Sneagator is a Devil Chojin, he's completely fine with using transformations in combat as dirty tactics is how Devil Chojin fight. 

Sneagator lunges at Ganman, but Ganman goes for a double chop to the neck, slicing into Sneagator's flesh. Tired of Sneagator's transformations, Ganman activates his Cyclops ability on Snegator, reverting Sneagator back into normal and slamming into the canvas. 

Back in his crocodile form, Sneagator lays dazed on the floor, just as confused as the audience. Irritated with lies, Ganman uses the Cyclops ability, exposing human audience's deceptions as well. Angered by the Cyclops ability abuse, Sneagator tells Ganman off for his cruelty towards humans. Calm as always, Ganman just wants everyone to stop hiding behind their lies. What's so cruel about that? 

Sneagator goes for another skin shed, but Ganman negates it instantly with his Cyclops ability. Ganman thinks that Sneagator's the one who hides behind his lies the most. Ganman orders Sneagator to stop hiding behind those shameful transformations, wanting Sneagator to fight Ganman in his real form, so they can achieve the ideal Perfect Chojin are supposed to keep. Ganman starts slapping Sneagator mercilessly, but Sneagator blocks and counters with a kick to Ganman's head. Ganman didn't feel that kick, thinking it was less than a mere tickle. Ganman counters with a perfect example of a mighty kick comparable to General Devil's kicks. 

Sneagator hates that Ganman thinks of himself as a funny person. Leaking blood from his body, Sneagator stands up, still determined to win. Ganman gets serious by imagining Sneagator as General Devil. As General Devil's student, Sneagator must surpass his teacher! And to do that, Sneagator sheds again but into another crocodile form. Sneagator chucks his shed skin right at Ganman, blinding him. 

Sneagator uses this moment to grapple Ganman's legs with a Boston Crab, getting Ganman's praises for that clever moment. However, Ganman uses his Elk Horn Scissors on a vulnerable Sneagator, saying that Sneagator's plan is just another dirty trick. The monitor connects to the Tottori Sand Dunes in Japan, revealing the surviving combatants against the Perfect Large Numbers. Sneagator asks how the Devil Chojin are doing, having a friendly conversation with Buffaloman on why Sneagator is in Italy instead being in the Graveyard with the other Devil Knights until he notices Springman's decapitated head in Buffaloman's grasp.  

Springman died an honorable death, according to Buffaloman. And so did the others as well. The only survivors are Buffaloman and Black Hole. Seeing as he trained the Seven Devil Chojin, he cannot let himself die, turning into his Tyrannosaurus Foot in a Sneaker form out of pride. Sneagator unties his laces, revealing his true form, and slams Ganman into the Leaning Tower. Seeing as Ganman can't move, he tries his Cyclops on Sneagator, but it fails because Sneagator is in his true form. Meat and Kinnikuman have a chat about the fight Kinnikuman had against Sneagator, concluding that the T-Rex foot is saved as a last resort. Ganman must be crazy strong if Sneagator is forced to use that form.

Sneagator asks if this is what Ganman wanted, to fight in his true form. Ganman laughs at Sneagator, easily breaking out of his grip by flexing. Ganman easily susses out Sneagator's real face with a grapple because the real face is still grieving his students' defeats at the hands of the Perfect Large Numbers. With this knowledge at hand, Ganman painfully slams Sneagator's head on one of the ring's wooden poles. Perfect Chojin only recognize those with skill, ignoring those who die in combat since they lack skill.

Determined to fight even after that attack, Sneagator still attacks in a last-ditch effort. For his trouble, Sneagator gets shredded into pieces by Ganman's Elk Horn Tempest. The audience is shocked by Ganman's brutality. As he's attacked again by Sneagator, Ganman says that Sneagator is a sore loser and finishes him off by kicking him at the monitor screen. After the bell rings, Ganman is declared the winner. Before dying, Sneagator gets praised by Kinnikuman for being strong and delivers a speech to his surviving students, so they can surpass him.
