Hoo-Ha! Welcome to the gun show, boy! It’s time for you...to die.
~ Abobo

Abobo (in Japanese: アボボ) is a recurring antagonist from the Double Dragon series, appearing as a boss in most versions and practically becoming the series mascot.

The muscles of the Black Warriors, Abobo is one of their leaders, being admired by his henchmen and feared by his enemies.

What he lacks in intelligence he more than makes it for his brute strength, being able to easily toss people around and bust walls with only his fists. Though he has been defeated by the Lee brothers more than once, he is still a force to be reckoned.

With the dissolution of the Black Warriors after their defeat in the second game, Abobo joins the Renegades along with other ex-Black Warriors members.

In ''River City Girls'', he was voiced by Patrick Seitz, who is best known for voicing Dio Brando.

Appearance

Abobo is always depicted as a tall, muscular man, usually being twice the size of the Lee brothers and other enemy characters, although other characteristics vary from game to game. Abobo's skin color tends to vary depending on the palette he's using at the moment, as he has both, dark and light skin variants and even green. His sprite in the first game depicts him with a bald head and a horseshoe mustache, although his design tends to vary between later games and certain promotional illustrations.

Trivia

  • The arcade version of Double Dragon features two variants of Abobo, the regular bald-headed version with the horseshoe moustache who appears as a recurring sub-boss and a bearded/mohawked variant who appears as the end-boss of Mission 1 and Mission 3. According to the September 1987 issue of the Japanese gaming magazine Beep, the bald version was originally named Zack (ザック), while the dark-skinned mohawked version was originally named Jack (ジャック), with Abobo being the green-skinned palettte swap from the end of Mission 3. However, the NES and other console versions at the time cut the mohawked variants and only kept the bald version, giving him the "Abobo" name in the process. The mohawked version of Abobo is alternately known as Jikku/Jick (ジック) according to the June 12th, 1987 issue of Famicom Tsushin, although this was likely a typo.
  • The 1988 NES version of Technos Japan's Super Dodge Ball features two team captains modelled after Abobo. Rajiv of Team India and Boris of Team USSR. Character designer Koji Ogata's concept art of Boris actually labelled the character Abobo.
  • Double Dragon Advance, the 2003 Game Boy Advance remake of the original Double Dragon, features afro-haired variants of Abobo in addition to the bald and mohawked variants from the arcade game. The Green Abobo also appears in this version, where he is named "Mibobo" (a combination of the Japanese word midori for "green" and Abobo's name).
  • Abobo has a minor appearance on the animated series, appearing only in the first two episodes as a henchman of the Shadow Boss working alongside Wild Willy. He is sucked into the Shadow Mural alongside Willy for their repeated failures. He has blue skin in this appearance.
  • Abobo makes an appearance in the live-action movie. Here he has his own gang, later being captured by the villain Koga Shuko and mutated into a monstrous form. His full name in the movie was Bo Abobo.
  • Abobo appears as a mid-boss in the homage game Rage of the Dragons, where he is renamed Abubo and is shown as a grotesquely muscular man.
  • Abobo also appears as the main protagonist in the homage fan game Abobo's Big Adventure, where he must beat various NES characters to rescue his son Aboboy (actually a reuse of Rajiv from Super Dodge Ball).
