The Emperors (ジ・エンペラーズ)


The tag-team of Jean Steamboard and Beauty Rhodes. They fight under Edith Harrison, as a part of the World Supermen Council, and feature in two matches against The Machineguns and Blood Illusions. They are ultimately defeated, but change their ways and ultimately become true Seigi Chojin.


After Kinnikuman's eventual victory in the American Tour Arc, God Von Erich declares that a tag-tournament will determine which organisation will control the USA. [1] Beauty Rhodes is introduced to Jean Steamboard at New York Airport. [2] They enter the ring for the opening ceremony of the tournament, where they insult The Machineguns, only to later engage in a free-for-all brawl with all the other teams. [3] Their first official match is declared to be against The Machineguns. [4]

Jean Steamboard starts with an advantage, while Beauty Rhodes focuses upon Terryman. Terryman forces Kinnikuman out of the ring, as he tries to fight alone primarily against Rhodes, but Kinnikuman eventually fights alongside him and the two teams are evenly matched. Kinninkuman accidentally knocks out Terryman. [4] The Machineguns are unable to finish their attack before the end of the 60 minutes time limit, and this causes the match to end in a draw. [5]

After driving to their next match destination, The Emperors decide to shower with Edith Harrison. [6] The next match is against Blood Illusions; the match is even in skill, until Devil Magician throws gasoline over Beauty Rhodes and Skull Bozu light him aflame. [7] The Blood Illusions then throw daggers at Jean Steamboard, until Edith Harrison gives up the match on their behalf - they continue to attack. After Terryman and Meat Alexandria come to their defence, all four men are left in a bloody mess upon the ring by the Blood Illusions. [7] The Emperors are later seen again when Terryman lose his leg in The Machineguns vs. Blood Illusions, as they retrieve his leg from Kinkotsuman and return it to him. [8]
