Trivia Edit

  • Despite his hero name, Smile Man has actually never smiled within the series. Rather, he maintains a blank, emotionless face, much like Saitama and Watchdog Man.
  • His overall design, along with the kind of hammer he wields and his color scheme, may be a reference to the mexican TV superhero El Chapulín Colorado , known in America as Captain Hopper, created by Roberto Gómez Bolaños.
