Little Mac (リトル・マック, Ritoru Makku) is the main protagonist in the Punch-Out!! series of games.
Little Mac is 17 years old, 5' 7" (170 cm) (4' 8" (142 cm) in the NES version) tall, thus having slighly below average height compared to the average man, weighs 107 lb (49 kg) and hails from the Bronx, in New York. He usually appears as a medium-built Italian-American with black hair and wears a black singlet, black and white shoes and green shorts and boxing gloves. His black hair changes between games from a short ball cut in the NES installment to a standing-up hairstyle. In Super Punch-out!! however, he is now tanner, has blonde hair, wears blue shorts and no top. In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS, his design is more detailed, as he appears more muscular and tanner than in his Wii installment and looks more realistic, being drawn up in a similar fashion to the Fire Emblem characters and Legend of Zelda characters that are included in the game.
He is interested in getting into the World Video Boxing Association, which has a long history of rookie boxers joining the ranks in an effort to become world champions. He traveled to New York City in hopes of searching for someone that could train him. Unfortunately for him, he was rejected by over 200 trainers because of his size and possibly his age (he is a minor) and it was not until he met Jerome "Doc" Louis, who was a former heavyweight champion in his own right, then he began his journey to the top of the World Circuit, beating many other boxers standing in his path. He does not have much development and not much is known about him or his personality. In matches, he is very good at punishing mistakes, using his size to his advantage to quickly dodge attacks and uses a defensive playstyle focused on dodging and countering. In Punch-Out!! for the Wii, if he wins without taking much damage, he happily celebrates his victory and, if he gets KOd three times, it's possible for him to resist just before he falls to the ground and this can be done once per round, showing that he is humble and very determined to show others they misjudged him. He also feels uneasy with his fans sometimes as shown in Title Defense Super Macho Man's cutscene.
