Black Bravo by HitoshiAriga Black Bravo by HitoshiAriga
Black Bravo
Bravoman's rival.
His backstory was changed when they made the shift from the arcade version to the TG-16 version, but I prefer the original arcade version.

His true identity is Myoshima, a salesman who works for a rival company.
Myoshima and the main character Nakamura are rivals in battle, while the companies they work for are rivals in the corporate world.
To top it all off, Myoshima and Nakamura live in the same neighborhood (they just don't know it).

Bravoman is technically categorized as a comical hero, but I believe comical heroes are the most difficult to depict.
If the hero is uncool, you almost expect him to mess up or be silly, so it's not really funny when he does.
In order to be effectively humorous, a comical hero must be cool first. (this is my own personal opinion)

Bravoman is not a sharp, cool type character by default because Nakamura is a nice guy (too nice, in fact) and that personality seeps out even when he is Bravoman.
As a result, his character feels rounded and even a bit slow at times.
The secret to Bravoman's awesomeness is awesome enemies. By having him face enemies that have their act together, it brings out Nakamura's (Bravoman's) innate awesomeness.

Therefore, I like Black Bravo.

On a side note, when I saw the Black Sea Bravo in the TG-16 version, it was so cute it made me laugh.

・ブラックベラボー
「ベラボーマンのライバルキャラ。
アーケード版とPCエンジン版では設定が変わってしまいましたが
元々のアーケード版の設定が好きです。

彼の正体は妙島(みょうしま)、主人公ナカムラが勤める会社の
ライバル会社に勤めるセールスマンです。
しかも、ご近所さんのようです(本人たちは気づいていない)

ベラボーマン自体はコミカルヒーローにカテゴリされると思うのですが
コミカルヒーローは、とても難しい題材です。
かっこ悪いヒーローがズッコケるのは、ある意味、当たり前すぎて
面白くありません。
まず、かっこよくなければコミカルな演出も映えないのです。
(一般的な話ではなく、私個人の考えです)

ベラボーマンは、ナカムラの人の良さがにじみ出てる為か
どこかとぼけた所があります。
が、脇を固める敵役に、ある種のかっこよさを入れる事で
ナカムラ(ベラボーマン)の持つかっこいい部分が生きてくるのです。

ブラックベラボー、大好きなキャラです。

余談ですが、PCエンジン版では海の中に
ブラック・シーベラボーが出てきた時は
その愛らしい姿に笑ってしまいました。

Neigbors and just don't know it? If any one of them found out who the other is prepare for a REALLY akward family feud (if they bothw ent on Family Feud, the show as their Bravoman identities, gonna be akward to watch knowing that both families have superhumans as husbands).

...Oh god flashback to a PPG episode. No WONDER carl looked so damn familiar! (a villan from the show with eerily similar traits that mirrors Bravoman)

Every good hero needs an equally effective rival antagonist.
