|~ Official description|
Spring Man, also known as "The Bouncer", is the main protagonist in the 2017 Nintendo video game ARMS.
Spring Man is a very enthusiastic and young man, being only 20 years old. He loves ARMS and his main hobbies, considering he has his own gym that shows advertisements of him lifting weights (one of his most favorite exercises). He is a bit cocky, similar to Max Brass, but not to the point of being unlikeable.
He is one of the first characters to be revealed alongside Ribbon Girl, and thus stars in a lot of the game's official art, sometimes seen as a background character with other characters such as Twintelle, Master Mummy or Lola Pop. 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, Spring Man 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 his health gets to a low level, Spring Man glows red, and his ARMS stay permanently charged. This allows him to make a possible comeback on his opponents.
- Spring Man only obtained his Assist Trophy status due to bad timing of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's release, but he later appeared as part of Min Min's Final Smash cinematic.
