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.
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.
"With arms made of springs, no wonder they call him "the bouncer"! At first glance it's hard to take this guy seriously, but in the ARMS game, he always takes center stage. He can perma-charge in a pinch, and that indomitable spirit is gonna take him right to the top!" —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."
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% (250 HP) or lower damage, he glows red, and his ARMS stay permanently charged.
