"From the remote region of Misanga, named for its eponymous deity, it's…Misango! His fighting style—enhanced by the spiritual woven entity at his side—has been passed down from generation to generation. According to a vague prophecy, Misango must enter the Grand Prix to prove that the Misangan fighting style is the greatest in the world!"

Misango is a playable fighter in ARMS released in the Version 4.0.0 update. He was released with three ARMS that all use the Poison attribute, which was also released in the update.


Misango's design appears to take heavy influence from Mayan culture. He wears a golden headband and a blue shirt and shorts, the shirt being adorned with a golden medal that depicts Misango's logo. Misango's ARMS appear to be made from some type of woven fabric (likely his namesake, miçanga bracelets).


"Misango is a skilled fighter who is fiercely devoted to his homeland, and the power of the Misanga. During a fight, he channels that power with the help of the little woven sprite that hovers at his side. His reasons for competing in the Grand Prix are simple—to prove that the Misangan fighting technique is superior to all others...and to win!"
Official description


The main draw of Misango is his spirit companion; if Misango charges up for long enough or guards long enough that the spirit drops in front of him and Misango walks into the resulting pillar of light, the spirit will fuse with him, powering Misango up with one of three different types of masks. The mask attribute that Misango can gain depends upon the color of the spirit when the charge or guard is complete.

Red makes Misango resistant to punches (like Master Mummy's super armor), increases ARM girth and general size, increases grab damage to 180, but decreases speed on the ground and in the air as well as overall jump performance. Blue increases Misango's mobility both in the air and on the ground, but decreases ARM girth and grab damage to 150. Yellow fills the Rush Gauge at a faster rate, and blocks punches automatically when activating a Rush, but decreases movement speed and decreases grab damage to 150.

The spirit also provides a shield from attacks if Misango guards for long enough. Misango can change/remove the current mask he wears if he charges fully again, guards for long enough that the spirit becomes a shield in front of him, or gets knocked down.

Grand Prix Ending[edit]


  • Misango is the first character whose default ARMS all have the same attribute, and the only character whose default ARMS all have the Poison attribute.
  • Misango is a pun on miçanga, a type of bracelet that represents good luck and friendship. This is fitting because making bracelets is stated as one of Misango's hobbies, and Misango's extendable ARMS look like miçangas.
  • Misango is one of the fighters whose two victory animations reflect the state he is in when the battle is over, namely whether he is wearing a mask or not (the other being Min Min with her dragon ARM).
  • Misango's spirit companion has no official name.
