Episode Summary

EDIT
Sleep Fighter
AIRED:
At the end of the last episode, Kid Muscle was down after suffering Baron Maxamillion's devastating finisher - the Baron Wasteland. The episode begins with Kid still unconscious and his friends doubting his victory, when suddenly, much to the chagrin of the Baron, Kid comes to his feet. As excited as everyone is that Kid Muscle is standing again, Meat informs everyone that Kid Muscle may be standing - but he is sound asleep on his feet as a result of all the punishment that Maxamillion has inflicted!

Meat is of course disheartened as the Baron begins to assault the dozing hero, but King Muscle informs everyone that he and Kid Muscle used to share a bed together and that, because both kicked in their sleep, they developed a system of "Sleep Fighting". Meat finds this hard to believe at first, but then Kid starts blocking all of the Baron's hits. Unaffected by the Kid's "sleep fighting", Baron Maxamillion tosses him into the air and prepares to put the Kid away with the Honor Drop, a move that greatly resembles Checkmate's Piledriver Stallion Checkmate notices this too, and yells to the sleeping Kid Muscle to think back to their match and disable the Honor Drop the same way he got out of the Piledriver Stallion Kid responds and delivers a headbutt to Maxamillion's knee just like he did to Checkmate in their previous encounter. After escaping the move, Meat and King Muscle joke that Kid Muscle fights better asleep that awake. Baron Maxamillion, however, is not impressed and states that no amount of sleep fighting can save Kid Muscle from - the Baron Wasteland!

As Maxamillion approaches, planning on finishing off the Kid, Jeager invokes the power of the Skull of Mystery and tosses it to the still sleeping Kid and Kid Muscle is able to ward off the Baron with the Red Rain of Pain. Kid's friends, fans, and Roxanne, all begin to chant the Kid's name and show their support. Meanwhile, the Kid is in a deep dream in which he is confronted by Ninja Ned and Grand Chancellor Minch. The three of them are on a boat in the middle of a lake and Ned and Minch remind Kid Muscle of all the support his friends and his fans all around the world are showing for him. They even show that past rivals are routing for him (some of which include Hydrozoa, Sunshine, and Mars). With this support, the Kid finally awakens and finds himself in the middle of an all-out war with Baron Maxamillion. Everyone, especially Roxanne and King Muscle, are happy to see the Kid up again. Wasting no time, he immediately envokes the power of Ultimate Muscle - but Maxamillion won't have that. He immediately strikes the Kid down before he can use Ultimate Muscle. He then informs Kid that he won't give him the chance to summon the power of Ultimate Muscle. But the support of Kid Muscle's friends is too much for the Baron to overcome and Kid Muscle ultimately calls upon Ultimate Muscle. After a series of moves, Kid nails a Kinniko-Driver and hurts the Baron badly despite his attempts to deny his injuries. The Baron then freaks out and tries Baron Wasteland again, but Kid Muscle frees himself. The Baron then thrusts Kid Muscle back down to the ring where he bounces up and flies all the way up to where Roxanne is currently being held. He looks at Roxanne and smiles - because in his hand - he has the ring rope! Though the Baron believes he did this to save himself, Kid Muscle informs him that he grabbed the ropes so he could hit his ultimate move - THE MUSCLE MILLENNIUM! Kid fires into the Baron and blasts him out of the ring, through solid rock, and launches the Baron right out the side of Mount Fuji! The Kid then returns to the ring and is declared the winner.
Of course, Maxamillion had a back-up plan as he detonates explosives within the Poison Six-Pack's Jester Head, and sends Roxanne flying through the air and over the edge of Mount Fuji. Kid Muscle rushes to her and just barely manages to catch her. But there is no one to catch him. He is then caught by all of his friends working together. Kid Muscle, having saved Roxanne asked for a kiss as a reward. Then, to the shock of Kid and everyone else, she agrees. The Kid leans in for a kiss, but at the last second, Roxanne substitutes Doc instead. The Kid yells at Roxanne for forcing him to kiss the balding announcer, but she tells the Kid that she loves - and does not get to finish the sentence because the rest of the Jester Head explodes.

Meanwhile, on a road exiting Mount Fuji, we see Kevin Mask (who no one watching had noticed was gone up until now) on his motorcycle and he scoffs that "Next time, Kid Muscle might not be so lucky as to have Kevin Mask on his side..." Possibly suggesting a showdown between the two in the finals of the Ichiman Chojin Crown.moreless
