Smile Man (スマイルマン, Sumairuman, VIZ: Smileman) is the A-Class Rank 27 professional hero of the Hero Association and the eldest of the Surly Brothers.


Smile Man is a lean muscular man with short brown hair that peaks out from his headcover. He wears a red bodysuit and a black mask. His bodysuit and belt have a smiley face.


Smile Man is a realist, who is aware of the Hero Association's ranking and the attitudes of the heroes who usually join it. He's not arrogant, very cautious, and calm individual as he wasn't agitated when he was suddenly attacked by a Demon-leveled Fist Fight Djinn.

Abilities and PowersEdit

As an A-Class hero, Smile Man is a skilled and powerful fighter. He defeated a Demon level threat with help from his brothers - though they doubted the monster was actually worthy of that threat level.

Physical AbilitiesEdit

Enhanced Durability: Smile Man was able to take a hit from Fist Fight Djinn, a Demon-level Mysterious Being, receiving only moderate injuries.

Enhanced Speed and Reflexes: Smile was able to dodge a freezing attack from the Withered Sprout.

Fighting StyleEdit

Kendama Combatant: Smile Man uses his kendama in combat to perform mid-ranged attacks. His secret moves are all based on tricks with the kendama. He can freely control the kendama for both attack and defense.[2]

  • Round-the-World Beatdown (暴走世界一周, Bōsō Sekai Isshū): He moves the kendama in a wide motion, smashing everything in the vicinity.[1]
  • World-Shattering Spin (地球破壊回し, Chikyū Hakai-mawashi): Smile Man launches his kendama with a spin at incredible speeds.[3]


Kendama: Smile Man's weapon of choice. It is a giant kendama with a smiley face on its ball. He is very skilled at wielding it.[4]

Trivia Edit

  • Despite his hero name, Smile Man has actually never smiled within the series. Rather, he maintains a blank, emotionless face, much like Saitama and Watchdog Man.
  • His design, fight style, and even weapon are theorized to be a reference to the Mexican character: "El Chapulin Colorado", also a superhero parody created by the late comedian Roberto "Chespirito" Gómez Bolaños.
