Terryman is the best friend of Kinnikuman, as well as the love interest of Natsuko. He features in many arcs and matches, with an impressive career record, and eventually retires to start a family, where he fathers Terry the Kid.


Terryman is an American Seigi Chojin (正義超人 Seigi Chōjin, Justice Superman) from Texas and Kinnikuman's best friend. On his forehead is the character (Bei) and on his shoulders are the Star Emblems (スターエンブレム) which give him his Fighting Spirit. When he first appears he is very businesslike and looks down on Kinnikuman. But when he realises that Kinnikuman has the same Burning Spirit as himself they become best friends.

At the 20th Chojin Olympics his left leg is shot and wounded by Kinkotsuman, causing him to have to wear an prosthetic leg in order to continue fighting (however, the leg can be removed very easily).

After a while, the leg was no longer mentioned until the Perfect Origin Arc: there was revealed how Backlund was able to create a perfect, improved version of the earlier prosthetic able to be sturdily affixed and perform as perfectly as a flesh-and-blood leg. However, while fighting against Justiceman he got his latest prosthetic badly damaged, revealing how Backlund died, leaving no one able to rebuild his leg and even when he was alive he cautioned him about his prosthetic leg being one of a kind, unlikely to be ever repaired or fixed: his sacrifice ultimately convinced Justiceman to forfeit, touched by his keen sense of justice, and rely on a lesser, visibly fake, metallic leg from now on.

Whenever the laces on his ring shoes snap it signifies that one of his friends is in trouble. He is quite knowledgeable and is known for saying "Come to think of it, I've heard of this..." (そういえば、聞いたことがある…, Souieba, Kiita koto ga aru...) whenever he sees an enemy's technique and then going into an explanation.

He refers to other people as You (ユー ) (occasionally using the more common Omae (おまえ)) and in earlier chapters he referred to himself in the first person as Me (ミー ).



1st Kaiju Extermination Arc

Terryman first arrived as an American Super Hero taking over Kinnikuman's designated area of Japan. [2] Terry charged money for his services, which the Japanese Government considered "a small price to pay compared to being saved by Kinnikuman", and soon he was made the sole Hero of Japan (meaning only he was legally allowed to fight against monsters and evil chojin). [2]

A child comes to Terryman for help, as his father has been taken hostage by a monster, but Terryman kicks the child (whom lacks the finances to hire him). Kinnikuman strikes him for refusing to help someone in need, before choosing to help the child instead; Terryman warns him that the military will attack him for not being an approved hero. The selflessness of Kinnikuman convinces him to change his ways, as he fights for justice and not for money. [2]

Terryman next appears during a meeting between Natsuko and Kinnikuman, in which he defeats a monster. [3] He flirts with Natsuko and flies away. [3] When a competition between chojin and monsters arises, Terryman refuses as he will not make any money. [4] He changes his mind when he realises Natsuko will be present. The match is set to be a tag team, but Kinnikuman walks away, and this leads to Terryman being attacked with scissors. Kinnikuman hears his screams for help and returns. [4]

He is seen on a date with Natsuko, too. [5] During the date, Kinnikuman is attacked by Kinkotsuman and Terryman comes to his defence. [5] He also teases Kinnikuman for not having gadgets, such as hover-bikes. [6] Terryman later is forced to fight Natsuko when she is turned giant and evil by one of Kinkotsuman's schemes; he confesses his love and refuses to harm her, but - when Kinkotsuman attacks them - Terryman is willing to die for her safety. [7] Kinnikuman intervenes and Natsuko is returned to normal size. [7] After a trip to the south with Kinnikuman, they soon become best friends. [8]

20th Chojin Olympics Arc

Terryman is first seen in this arc, when he tells Kinnikuman that he cannot compete in the Chojin Olympics as Japan's representative has been removed by the chairman. [9] He also reveals that he is the Southern USA representative. [9] Terryman and Specialman appear together as the USA representatives in the opening ceremony, and later wins the first preliminary match, which is Rock-Paper-Scissors. [10]

He is distraught in the second preliminary match by Specialman's defeat, and deduces that his accident is at the hands of Kinkotsuman. [11] During the battle royale, to determine who comes in eight place during the third preliminary round, Terryman realises that the referee is Kinkotsuman in disguise and arranges his defeat, which leads Kinnikuman to win the match by default. [12] The first match for Terryman is against Skyman. [13] After an exchange of blows, Terryman is knocked briefly unconscious. [14] Specialman - in his injured state - comes to cheer Terryman onward; Terryman defeats Skyman with an Oklahoma Stampede. [14]

At the Nippon Budokan, Terryman arrives to the semi-finals alongside Robin Mask. [15] Terryman gets up at the end of the Kinnikuman vs. Ramenman match, at which point he sees Kinkotsuman attempting to assassinate Kinnikuman with a gun, and gets shot in the leg by accident. [16] He crawls to his dressing room, where he is found by Natsuko, and begs her not to tell the chairman, as it would cause him to forfeit his match against Robin Mask (which is about to start). [17] Terryman knocks Natsuko unconscious, before arriving at the last minute for his match. He pretends to not be injured, before fighting with dirty tactics. [18] He throws sand in Robin's face and uses steel knuckle-dusters to attack.

Terryman screams in pain when he attempts his spinning tone-hold. [19] Robin implements the Boston Crab, which causes him to give up and forfeit the match. Natsuko reveals that Terryman fought injured, at which point Robin Mask and Kinnikuman offer him their places in the finals. He then engages in a minor scuffle with Kinnikuman, as they bicker as friends. [20] He later dances with Natsuko at the ball celebrating the finals. [21] In a competition to determine who will be third place, he then battles Ramenman. [22]

Terryman wins the match due to foul-play by Ramenman. [22]

American Tour Arc

A tag tournament is announced, in which Kinnikuman must engage in a round robin. [23] He must fight the Chojin Council, Chojin Federation, Chojin Association, and the Kaiju - the winner of the four groups will gain control of America. [23] Kinnikuman finds Terryman in Amarillo, Texas; Terryman initially refuses to participate, due to the work on his ranch, and it is revealed he has lost his left leg. [24] The wound he obtained by Kinkotsuman increasingly got worse, until he was forced to amputate. [24] Kinnikuman eventually convinces him to use a prosthetic leg. [25]

Over 100,000 people attend to watch the tournament in Houston, Texas. They form The Machineguns, with the theme of "The Magnificent Seven" as they make an entrance. Their first match is against Beauty Rhodes and Jean Steamboard, who form The Emperors. [26] During their match, Terryman is accidentally knocked out by Kinnikuman. Kinnikuman begins to lose, but Terryman wakes up long enough to save Kinnikuman with his own body. [27] The match ultimately ends in a draw. [28] The next few matches take place in Los Angeles. [29]

Terryman and Kinnikuman are set to win by default against Rugged Brothers, as one of their opponents lost in their previous match and is unable to compete. Kinkotsuman reveals that he is the new tag partner, and the group rename themselves Monster Master/Student Combo. [30] Kinnikuman and Terryman get trapped under a lighting rig that Kinkotsuman crashes down on them, but Kinnikuman knocks Terryman out when Terryman panics over the loss of his leg when faced with Kinkotsuman that caused his leg injury. [31] Kinnikuman wins the match in record time against both Kinkotsuman and Iwao.

In the The Emperors vs. Blood Illusions match, the Blood Illusions continue to attack despite The Emperors forfeiting the match. [32] Terryman enters the ring to intervene; Terryman loses his prosthetic leg and is attacked by the Blood Illusions, as is Meat when Meat comes to his defence.

The next few matches take place at Madison Square Gardens, New York. [33] Terryman panics in the waiting room while waiting for their match against the Blood Illusions, and seeks to quit the tournament, but a small boy in a wheelchair comes to return his lost hat. The boy also lost his leg, but - since seeing Terryman fight - was inspired to use his prosthetic leg to walk again, and walks unsteadily to Terryman. Terryman promises to be brave, just as the child was brave to try his prosthetic. [33] Iwao intervenes in the match and removes Terryman's prosthetic leg. [34] Kinkotsuman hits the child and knocks him unconscious.

Kinkotsuman keeps attacking the unconscious child, as he clings to the leg to prevent Kinkotsuman from destroying the lower limb. [35] In this arc, Terry got stabbed in the forehead repeatedly, and from this point on, his forehead kanji looked more an asterisk. Beauty Rhodes returns the leg to Terryman. Terryman goes on to win the match and celebrates with the child, while they - the New World Supermen Association - goes on to control America. [35]

2nd Kaiju Extermination Arc

Beansman goes to Texas to find seven chojin to protect Planet Rakka. [36] He tests Terryman's power with a monster, which Terryman easily defeats. Terryman agrees to help the planet. [36] They travel the world together to find the rest of the seven chojin needed to fight. [37] They win against their opponents and manage to save Planet Rakka. [38]

21st Chojin Olympics Arc

Terryman prevents Kinnikuman from fighting Rikishiman, as the first preliminary events occurs. [39] He wins the first round by not falling from the giant sieve. [39] He wins the second round of a swimming competition, where they must swim faster than the ensuing fire, and cheers on Kinnikuman. [40] The third preliminary match tests how far each chojin can push a train; after pushing it far enough to disqualify Rikishiman, who will now be in last place, he chases after the train at full speed. [41] He stops the train to save a puppy, but the act of touching the train - after it has left the station - disqualifies him and allows Rikishiman to be an entrant.

He acts as a commentator for much of the arc that follows, such as the final preliminary event. [42] This trend follows even into the finally fight between Warsman and Kinnikuman, where he still acts as a commentator. [43]

Seven Akuma Chojin Arc

During the celebrations for the 21st Chojin Olympics: The Big Fight, the Seven Akuma Chojin are accidentally freed by Kinnikuman. [44] They kidnap Alexandria Meat during the festivities, and each take a body part, and declare that Kinnikuman must defeat each of them to retrieve a part and bring Meat back to life. [45] When Kinnikuman is later injured during his match with Stereo Cassette King, Terryman tries to fight in disguise as Kinnikuman, but it ultimately defeated as the remaining Seven Akuma Chojin fight him 6-on-1. [46] The Mountain finishes this attack with a Mountain Drop. [46]

When Kinnikuman beats Black Hole, he cannot fight any longer and the Seigi Chojin decide to fight on his behalf. [47] The remaining Seven Akuman Chojin - and seigi chojin - match up to find their opponents, and The Mountain is matched with Terryman (and the Mountain possesses Meat's hips). [48] The match will take place in the Chichibu mountains. At first, it appears that Terryman is alone in the ring, but then the Mountain reveals he was disguised as one of the mountains and was there all along. [48]

They exchange a series of blows, but - while grabbing Mountain in a Spinning Toe Hold - Terryman notices one of the laces on his shoe has snapped (a bad omen in Japanese culture). [49] He later is in danger and caught on the ropes by Mountain. [50] Terry attacks with a Deadly Drive, only for another shoe-lace to snap. [51] A third lace snaps, but barely holds together, and Terryman realises that Brocken Jr. is clinging to life.

Terryman barely avoids a Body Slam. [52]

The last string of Terryman's laces snaps. [53] Terryman is heavily beaten by the Mountain, but - when Mountain insults his fallen comrades - this reinvigorates Terryman into attacking anew. Terryman cries, as he attacks Mountain, even when Mountain is touching the ropes and his actions are illegal. Terryman climbs the ropes and chances a Flying Knee Drop, but the attack causes Terry extreme pain, as it injures his prosthetic leg. The Mountain attempts a Mountain Drop, but Terryman counters with ease and stops the attack. [53]

Terryman ends the match with a Brain Buster. [54] The Mountain reveals that - although defeated - he won't die alone, and the ropes to the ring snap as he grabs at Terryman's ankle. They both fall from an extreme height, which results in The Mountain's death and Terryman's seeming demise. [54] It is revealed that - remembering his promise to Kinnukuman- Terryman clung to life and returned to reunite with his friends. [54]

During the fight with Atlantis, he, Brocken, and Mongolman go through the Spirit World Pocket to stop the fallen Devil Chojins from manipulating Kinnikuman. During the fight with Buffaloman, Terry is the one who gives Kinnikuman the idea of giving Buffaloman too much power.

Golden Mask Arc

Terryman appears with the other seigi chojin for a fitness test. [55]

It is during this time that the Golden Mask and Silver Mask are separated, resulting in all seigi chojin slowly losing their power, and Terryman is the first to seen faint. [55] Terryman rushes to attack the Devil Knights, but is knocked back by them. [56] Terryman - along with his companions - are placed into plastic bubbles, which act as life-support devices. [57] During Kinnikuman's battle with Planetman, Planetman steals the souls of the siegi chojin trapped within the life support devices. [58] Terryman - and the others - are saved when Kinnikuman sacrifices Warsman in order to protect the rest of the group and defeat Planetman. [59]

This defeat of Planetman restores Terryman - and others - to full power. [59]

Warsman is revealed to be alive, but in a precarious state. Terryman decides to turn into a microscopic size and go inside Warsman's body, along with Robin Mask, Brocken Jr., Kinnikuman, and Geronimo. [60] Terryman decides that the group will hold off the remaining Devil Knights, until Kinnikuman can reach the top floor and retrieve the Golden Mask - the matches will take place on a tower of rings formed along Warsman's spinal column. [60] Kinnikuman eventually manages to climb his way to the third floor of the tower inside Warsman, where Terryman is fighting Asuraman. [61]

When Asuraman seeks to defeat Terryman with an Asura Buster, Kinnikuman jumps into the ring to absorb the impact and save Terryman's life. [62] Terryman manages to gain some advantage in battle, but Asuraman steals both of his arms and leaves him without the ability to use attacks involving his arms. [63] It is revealed that - during battle - Terryman allows Warsman's control unit to be hit, which causes him to spasm and threatens all their lives (and Warsman's), and only a second - and equal strike - will save the unit. [64]

Terryman is willing to sacrifice his life to the Asura Buster to save the others. [64]

Asuraman reveals that he never stole Buffaloman's arms, which gives Terryman an idea: he borrows Buffaloman's strength to summon his arms and use them to replace his missing arms. [65] He grabs Geronimo's tomahawks, as Asuraman lifts him into the air, and commits the Honourable Death Drop against Asuraman, as both he and Asuraman plummet towards the control unit. He uses Buffaloman's arms to finish the blow to the unit, which gets it to work again. [65]

Asuraman is the first to stand after the attack, which means he has technically won, but - with both him and Terryman out of the ring - he has to return to the ring to claim his victory. [66] Terryman uses the last of his strength to tackle Asuraman and prevent him from returning to the ring, which results in a draw. Terryman holds Asuraman back long enough for Kinnikuman to continue his climb. He soon collapses out of exhaustion, but - even unconscious - he manages to keep a leg hold on Asuraman, keeping him in place. [66]

Dream Chojin Tag Arc

A second Mount Fuji appears in Japan. [67]

On top of this mountain, the Universal Chojin Tag Team trophy appears. Underneath, there appears a series of rings that allow for eight tag-teams to compete. Terryman - along with the other seigi chojin - goes to Kourakuen Hall to discuss the situation. After the others announce their group, Terryman states he has no reason to object to their decision and walks away. [67] Terryman reveals he will not team up with Kinnikuman, but instead seeks to work with Geronimo and bring him back to full health (since he is now in a vegetative state). [68]

Terryman visits a Cherokee village in Oklahoma, where - despite his soul supposedly having left his body - Geronimo protects him from being attacked by the villagers. Terryman begs Chief Cheyenne to heal Geronimo and bring him back to full health. [68] Once Geronimo is healed, and turned into a chojin, they arrive together in Japan for the tournament. [69] They enter their ring through a randomised set of corridors, which pits them against the Stray Akuma Chojin Combo. [70] Later, when the seigi chojin group together to protect Robin Mask, whose face is exposed, Terryman refuses to offer his help and states that his merciful nature has made him weak. [71]

The New Machineguns - (compromised of Terryman and Geronimo) - start the match dirty, by attacking after pretending to shake hands with their opponents: Stray Akuma Chojin Combo. [71] Terryman starts to strangle Asuraman with a bandage. [72] Asuraman counters with a Body Slam, and Terryman then calls Geronimo in for a tag-team counter-move, before he tags in Geronimo. Terryman soon starts to doubt himself and regrets not having teamed with Kinnikuman. They then break off two of Asuraman's arms. [72]

The dolls collected by the Stray Akuma Chojin Combo scatter and break on the ring-mat, which leads Terryman to suspect that it means his destiny is to be killed in the match. [73] They exchange a series of blows, but are soon outmatched with a Hell's Combination technique. [73] Terryman is then heavily beaten, but Geronimo fails to understand his hand gestures, and Terryman realises his mistake in pairing up with someone other than Kinnikuman. [74] Kinnikuman offers his support from the crowds, reinvigorating Terryman who nearly wins against Sunshine, but Asuraman threatens to take Geronimo's life lest Terryman concede. [75]

Terryman rips off his stars from his arms, symbols of his chojin nature, and concedes. [75] He is saved by Kinnikuman Great, when the Stray Akuma Chojin Combo fight on past the bell, but this act costs Kinnikuman Great a vast deal of injuries and incapacitates him. [76] It is shown that Kinnikuman Great is dying, and he gives Terryman his mask and asks Terryman to act in his place: Terryman agrees. [77]

Prince Kamehame's spirit then trains Terryman. [78]

A tug-of-war determines that Terryman's next match is against the Stray Devil Combo again (due to him assuming Kamehame's position and joining Kinnikuman's team with no one wiser). [79] The match takes place with their competitors surrounding the ring, so no one is allowed escape except through death. [79] 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. [80]

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. [81] 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. [82] When Terryman sacrifices himself for Kinnikuman, it reignites their Yuujo Power. [82] The two then manage to win the match, after a series of events and some flashbacks to Asuraman's childhood, with a Muscle Docking technique. [83]

It is later Terryman who discovers Doctor Bombe is deceased, and stops the others from uncovering his dead body, lest it demotivate them, and he then buries Bombe alongside his best friend: Kamehame. [84] 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. [85] 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. [85]

During the match against Neptuneman, some of Terryman's blond hair is exposed. [86] 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. [87] With only seconds to spare, Terryman is defeated with a Cross-Bomber in the first round and his face is revealed. [88] 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. [89]

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. [90] They later manage to trick their opponents by switching places underneath the ring and swapping masks, and this lets them gain the upper-hand. [91] Terryman is then knocked out of the ring onto the spikes, where he is incapacitated. [92] They work together, after Terryman recovers to win with a Muscle Docking. [93]

The two of them win the third round when both opponents faint. [94]

They then continue together to retrieve their trophy. [94]

Five Fated Princes Arc

Terryman attends Kinnikuman's coronation. [95]

He is appointed "Staff Officer" of the Justice Chojin Corps. [95] When the Five Fated Princes arrive, Terryman states that he is unable to help Kinnikuman due to his new role requiring him to be impartial, and that - as Kinnikuman is no longer prince he must not join his team. [96] Terryman - instead - returns to Texas to teach his students, such as Dickieman, and watches the first round matches on a television set. [97] On seeing Kinnikuman murdered in the ring, he abandons his medals and flees to go to the ring. [98]

During the match against King the 100-Ton, Terryman and Robin Mask arrives together to save Meat. [99] They are allowed to fight on Kinnikuman's team, as he has secretly added their names to the member roster in invisible ink (which is now visible). Terryman thus takes over in the match against 100-Ton. Terryman enters the ring on Kinnikuman's behalf, who begins the match with a drop-kick that is easily blocked by King, and - as tries again with a punch - his fists become bloodied. [99]

King then jumps on his hands. King takes off several of his weights, until he is left with only 20 tons, as he seeks to prove a point to Terryman. This allows him to move at a quicker speed. King then presses a lever on the ring, which reveals a see-saw was hidden beneath the canvas. Each time King jumps on the see-saw, he adds weights to his body and Terryman goes higher and higher, until he finally strikes the ceiling at some force. [99]

Terryman learns to time his attacks, so he can reverse the see-saw and send King hurtling backwards. [100] After Terryman gets him in a hold, King withdraws his limbs inside his body and turns into a spherical shape. King is able to split into two balls and return as one, which enables him to be creative in his attacks, and finally his turns into a giant dumbbell, which starts to crush Terryman under its enormous weight. Kinnikuman discovers King is being manipulated by Kinnikuman Mariposa, who uses signs to tell him how to attack, and Kinnikuman uses a sign to force King to return to his usual form. Terryman is then able to use a Texas Clover Hold. [100]

King finds a stray card, which allows him to turn his body into spikes to fight off Terryman. [101] He finally returns to his full weight and full power, and he plans to hit Terryman with full impact, intending to break every bone in his body. It indeed breaks every one of Terryman's bones. Kinnikuman bends the see-saw with a Face Flash, which allows Terryman to alter his cause and headbutt King. The flashcards all fall from the ceiling in the kerfuffle, which causes King's body to shift chaotically into everything at once. Terryman takes advantage by stopping him from transforming, using the ropes of the ring, and wins with a Calf Branding. [101]

This breaks King into dozens of pieces, killing him instantly. [102] Unfortunately, a falling piece of 100-Ton's body knocks out Terryman, which means the match ends in an official tie. Terryman is too injured to continue, and so Robin Mask takes over against Kinnikuman Mariposa. [102] When Robin struggles in his match, Terryman appears - heavily bandaged - to offer support for Kinnikuman and motivate Robin. [103] Terryman is next pitted against Motorman, but is treated to a barrage of attacks that he is too weak to fend off. [104]

Motorman appears as a competitor and second guard for Team Kinnikuman Zebra, where he is pitted against Terryman in Himeji Castle. [105] Motorman lays a series of blows against an already weakened Terryman, until Terryman traps him in a double-arm suplex. The suplex is incomplete, leading Motorman to dive head-first into Terryman, who catches his drill with both hands. He proceeds to use his Battery Claw, before drilling into Terryman's chest. This is followed with a Spark Ring Flash. [105]

Terryman aims an attack for his legs, which do not emit light, and knocks him down to the mat, but Motorman retaliates with a Drill-a-Hole Spark. He hits Terryman and sends him flying out of the ring. [105] Terryman is caught by Ramenman, who is in disguise as Bikeman. He is then laid down to rest. [106]

Once healed, Terryman helps Kinnikuman train for his final match. [107]

They work with Robin Mask on top of two adjacent towers, before a crystal lake pool, where they throw down dummies and judge by the reflection what position works best. Terryman then sacrifices himself, so that Kinnikuman can practise on a real human as opposed to a dummy. [107] Terryman - now too injured to participate - sits out the rest of the tournament to rest and recover. [108] Once recovered, Terryman - along with other Seigi Chojin - go to the final battle to offer support, where he meets Kinnikuman Super Phoenix's mother and leads her to Osaka Castle. [109] He is last seen supporting and celebrating Kinnikuman's victory. [110]

Kinnikuman (2011)

Perfect Large Numbers Arc

Terryman is reintroduced saving a boy in Japan. [111]

He has come to Japan at the request of Meat Alexandria, where three chojin factions plan to sign a peace treaty: Seigi Chojin, Perfect Chojin, and Zangyaku Chojin. Terryman is the spokesman for the Seigi Chojin. He signs the treaty at the Japan Martial Arts Stadium, and several days later he participates in a Chojin Appreciation Day. After his shoelace snaps, he notices that the arena is being invaded. [111] Terryman gets the children to safety, when it is revealed these are Perfect Chojin from outer space. [112]

After Max Radial defeats Specialman and Canadianman - and Tileman, Curry Cook, and Benkiman are turned into humans - Terryman jumps into the ring to protect people and stop the Perfect Chojin. [113] He punches Big the Budo and declares a full-scale tournament. [114] Natsuko and Geronimo beg Terryman not to compete, as he would need to defeat all seven chojin alone, but he states that he must for the safety of the world. He picks a card at random that determines his opponent: Max Radial.

The match takes place at the Tokyo Dome. [115] Terryman attacks from the red corner, before the match begins, before landing a storm of punches and proceeds with a Spinning Toe Hold. It is revealed Max Radial's legs are made from suspensions, so the leg hold has no power, and he tightens them and releases them so that Terryman is sent flying in the distance. Terryman attempts a Calf Branding, but Max's tires stop his face from making contact with the ring canvas. [115]

Terryman is attacked by a Drift Tackle, but - when he stands - his body is torn with slashes from the tires. [116] Terryman attempts to counter with an Oklahoma Stampede-styled Throw, but Max stops this with a Big Radial Fin. Max attacks again and again, until Terryman's skin is ripped into shreds. Even after Terryman faints, he stands and prevents another Drift Tackle. [116]

It is revealed that Terryman has been wearing down the tires on Max Radial's shoulders, which is where Terryman starts to focus his attacks. [117] Terryman manages to scrape the rubber from the tires, before exploding the tires. He is finally able to use a Calf Branding attack and a Texas Condor Kick, before winning with a Tenacious Blow. [117] Terryman falls out of the ring, only to be caught by Kinnikuman. [118] When Max Radial is murdered by Big the Budo, Terryman is horrified and fails to understand them. [118]

(More to Come)

Perfect Origin Arc

As such, he fought and won Max Radial, getting grievously injured, sitting over until the Perfect Origin Arc, and then he fought against Justiceman, revealing how Backlund had secretly replaced the prosthetic leg he wore in the 20th Chojin Olympics with a more advanced, one-of-a-kind model able to perform exactly as a real, flesh-and-blood leg and never be dislodged, the apex of his farrier's skill. However, despite knowing that his new leg was unable to be repaired or rebuilt (as Backlund died sometime before) he let Justiceman trash him during the fight: touched by his sacrifice, Justiceman forfeited, letting him win by default.

True Akuma Chojin Arc

During the True Akuma Chojin Arc Terryman, with a new (but far less advanced) prosthetic leg was called to Planet Kinnku for a celebration of his latest efforts: however, Satan himself, in a bid to aid the Omega Centauri's Six Spears put a force-field around Planet Kinniku's throne room, trapping him and most of the Seiji Chojin. After Kinnikuman took the throne, Terry settled down on a ranch with Natsuko and the two had a son, Terry The Kid.

Kinnikuman Nisei

Hercules Factory Arc

Originally, Terryman had little impact in the sequel story. He appeared as one of the vanquished veteran chojin who were defeated by the dMp, but for the most part appeared in flashbacks regarding his son.

It is revealed at the Hercules Factory that Terryman still spoke highly and kindly about Kinnikuman, even slapping his own son for accusing Kinnikuman of stealing the glory, the limelight and the best trophies from his friend. This forces Terryman and Kinnikuman to attempt to repair the friendship between their sons; it pushes their sons into a repeat of their vitriolic, close knit, argumentative relationship of their earlier days.

Kinnikuman vs. Terryman

In a special edition chapter, Meat tells a story to Terry the Kid and Mantaro Kinniku. In which, Terryman challenges his best friend Kinnikuman to a fight. [105] This is an filler arc set twenty-nine years previous to the Chojin Olympic Resurrection.  After twenty-six years of service, Kinnikuman was set to return to Planet Kinniku, but Terryman challenges him to a fight for honour, and Kinnikuman is granted fives days for the match (preparation and the fight itself). [105] He announces the fight will be at 6pm Todoroki Stadium, with no press or audiences allowed.

Warsman arrives at Terryman's ranch in the USA, riding a horse, and he is alongside Buffaloman - they declare they will help him to train. They initially defeat Terryman, proving he has a lot of progress to make to defeat Kinnikuman. Two days later, Terryman is able to defeat them both. They leave together for the match, only to discover Natsuko was in a car accident. [105]  Terryman stays by her side in the ICU, while Warsman and Buffaloman sleep outside. Natsuko awakes just long enough to tell Terryman to go to Japan and fight. 

When Terryman cannot be found, Kinnikuman is one of the only people who believe he will appear. Robin Mask acts as referee and announcer, but it then begins to rain and Kinnikuman is scheduled to leave in just one hour. Terryman arrives at 6:50, just ten minutes before Kinnikuman must leave. Robin Mask intervenes at 7:00 to announce the match is a draw, and Kinnikuman and Terryman embrace. [105]

Ultimate Chojin Tag Tournament

In this arc, Terryman is present alongside other Chojin.

He is seen winning the 1983 Universal Tag Tournament, alongside Kinnikuman, and it is this point to which the Time Chojin appear, after they win with Muscle Docking at 48 minutes and 23 seconds. They are stopped from removing the Championship trophy by the Time Chojin, who Terryman suspects are ancient Chojin from the past, unaware of their current status or strength or purpose. They attack Terryman, who has been weakened by his previous battle. The Time Chojin reveal they are from 34 years in the future, setting the current arc in 2017. Robin Mask intervenes to save Terryman and Kinnikuman's lives, but dies in the process, which leads to Kevin Mask dying in 2017, as he is slowly wiped from existence. This triggers the New Generation to go back and time to change events, in an attempt to save Robin's life. 

Terryman has currently teamed again with Kinnikuman, reforming The Machine-Guns. They are unaware that Kinniku Mantaro and Terry the Kid are their sons, but gradually comes to believe the truth that the Kid is indeed his son and they are related in future timelines, and this is helped by Natsuko who realises the truth with great speed (recognising the same mannerisms). The Machine-Guns win against the Carpet Bombings, comprised of Ortega and Moaidon, but lose in their second round to Muscle Brothers Nouveau, comprised of Mantaro Kinniku and Kinnikuman Great III. They are both there to witness Muscle Brothers Nouveau win the tournament, which saves Alisa's life and by extension Kevin Mask's life. This ends the arc.
