The Tank Topper Army (タンクトッパー軍団, Tankutoppā-gundan) is a group comprised of the Tank Toppers, under the leadership of Tanktop Master.

AppearanceEdit

Every member of the Tank Topper Army wears a tank top. The designs of each member's tank top vary.

PersonalityEdit

Every member of the Tank Topper Army takes great pride in their tank tops and associates them with a symbol of strength and pride. Many of the members are shown to be extremely rude and arrogant towards everyone but their leader, although Tanktop Master does not approve of this behavior.[1] All of the members of this army worship the words of Tanktop Master, and believe that the path to true strength is through tanktops: ironically, Tanktop Master believes this more than anyone, as seen when he observes Bang dominating Metal Bat in their sparring match, he concludes that the secret to Bang's power is that he has a tank top hidden underneath.[2]

As the mob is chanting against Saitama, Tanktop Black Hole deceives the civilians into thinking Saitama tries to attack them. The brothers challenge Saitama to "protect" the civilians as part of a publicity stunt, but were easily defeated with Tanktop Black Hole apologizing profusely. [4]

As he was about to finish the fight, Mumen Rider steps in, stopping the fight, believing Garou had already taken enough beating, to which he agrees.

    • Tanktop Master was defeated and hospitalized after Garou adapted to his movements and began using his Water Streaming Rock Smashing Fist.
