|~ Magent Magent|
Magent Magent is a minor antagonist featured in Steel Ball Run.
Magent Magent is presented as an affable and genial henchman to Funny Valentine, trying to bond with his new partner Wekapipo through idle chat or questionable jokes. However, he is quickly exasperated by Wekapipo's gloomy attitude and comes to hate him for leaving him behind in the cold.
When first seen Magenta Magenta is along with his partner in crime, Wekapipo, and waiting to ambush Gyro and Johnny. His disgusting habits are mentioned by his partner and upon battle he quickly shows his capabilities by disabling Gyro's steel balls with his defensive stand.
Getting carried away Gyro is able to outwit him and heavily scars his face, and figures that Magenta Magenta is dead. This is later shown to be false when he ambushes his ex-partner while trying to kill Stephen Steel.
He ended up wrapping himself with dynamite and tried to blow Wekapipo up, but the impact sends him into a river, where he awaits to be rescued by Diego.
- Magent Magent has a fate similar to that which Kars met in Battle Tendency.
