"Fresh from Spring Gym, we have Spring Man bouncing into the fray! Why do they call him 'the bouncer'? If you're asking, you're not paying attention! He's long dreamed of hanging that championship belt on his mantle, but will he crack under pressure?"
—Biff

Spring Man is a playable fighter in ARMS. In the game, he is a young, enthusiastic fighter, and the newest contestant to join the Grand Prix. As his name implies, his visual appearance revolves around springs. Along with Ribbon Girl, Spring Man was one of the first two fighters to be revealed for ARMS.

Appearance[edit]

Spring Man appears mostly human except for his spiraled irises and his metallic, spring-like arms. He has blue eyes, and shiny, light blue hair which is curled to resemble a spring. He wears a white athletic shirt, a red mask, gray shorts, and red sneakers. He also wears a red chest plate featuring his logo.

Backstory[edit]

"Spring Man is the newest ARMS fighter to join the tournament. He represents his own gym and loves weight training and pizza: he can eat 12 pizzas in one go."
—Official Description


Spring Man is a young ARMS athlete who trains at Spring Gym. For many years, Spring Man has dreamed of defeating Max Brass and becoming champion of the ARMS Grand Prix. His favorite food is Pizza, and he is often seen eating it in official art. Spring Man has a confident and enthusiastic personality. He takes a particular pride in his spring-like, pompadour hairstyle.

According to the ARMS Direct, an interview with Spring Man revealed that while he was initially surprised at his gift of ARMS, he later came to the realization that they were "actually pretty rad".

Abilities[edit]

One of Spring Man's abilities allows him to parry incoming attacks, giving him added time to counter and punish. It is performed by holding the dash or jump button and releasing at any time before max charge. If holding jump, the player has to wait until Spring Man touches the floor to be able to activate the ability. The parry is mainly used to bait and counter punches, cover wake-up options and defend against aggressive opponents. When Spring Man reaches 25 or lower damage, he glows red, and his ARMS stay permanently charged.
