Jumbo Flapjack (Kimala the Bouncer in Japan) is a character from the Slam Masters series of wrestling games.
Biography[edit | edit source]
Concept[edit | edit source]
Jumbo Flapjack's appearance is possibly based upon the late wrestler Earthquake. His Japanese name (Kimala), stature, and savagery indicate that he may also be based at least in part on the professional wrestler Kamala (also known as Giant Kamala), an '80s WWF veteran portraying an overweight and facepainted "savage" gimmick. Kamala would have been enjoying a successful run in All Japan Pro-Wrestling at the time Slam Masters was being developed.
The jagged facepaint patterns, girth, and firebreathing would also possibly suggest Mr. Pogo, a hardcore "heel" wrestler in the early '90s.
Story[edit | edit source]
A lover of liquor, Jumbo formerly worked as a bouncer at a bar, but was fired after beating a customer too severely. Afterwards he took a job as a wrestler's bodyguard. However, a fight broke out between Jack and the wrestler (for reasons unknown) which resulted in Jack knocking out his employer. He gladly replaced the wrestler subsequently and made his BWA debut.
Jumbo Flapjack is a dangerous wrestler who enjoys bullying the weak and feels the highest ecstasy when he sees blood dripping from his opponents' wounds. He shows absolute obedience to The Scorpion.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Jumbo Flapjack's favorite attacks are called Giant Swing and Pancake Poison, after which he might slap his belly proudly. His deadly Bear Hug can knock even the stoutest of opponents down to size. Also, his Fire Breath and Poison Breath abilities surely made him rise above competitors on his ascent to the top.
