King Hippo

In Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!!, King Hippo is a boxer from Hippo Island. Both his girth and face resemble a hippopotamus. He has helpfully taped an X over his belly, which gives Mac a target to aim for when trying to hit King Hippo’s weak spot.

Little Mac

In the Nintendo series Punch-Out!!, Little Mac is a scrappy underdog boxer who’s trained with Doc Louis. He’s worked his way up from the bottom to face Mike Tyson, Mr. Dream, and even make an appearance in the next Super Smash Bros.

Rocky Balboa

Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) is a small-time boxer who makes ends meet as the muscle for a loan shark. When undefeated heavyweight Apollo Creed rolls through town, Rocky gets a shot at the title against all odds. Commence the cow beatings!

Apollo Creed

In the Rocky series, Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) is the The Master of Disaster, The King of Sting, The Prince of Punch, and the Undisputed Heavyweight Champion of the World. He throws Rocky Balboa a bone by giving him a shot at the title. Little does he know that they’d become nemeses, and later best buds.
