Choujin Kyoudo (超人強度), literally Superhuman Strength, is the system for measuring the strength of Choujin. They are measured by units called Power (パワー) (ex: 950,000 Power).
The existence of Choujin Kyoudo is first mentioned during the Warsman/Buffaloman fight during the Seven Devil Choujins Arc. Warsman, being the Choujin Olympics runner-up and a big-wheel in the Choujin World, has the highest Kyoudo amongst the Idol Choujin (1,000,000 Power). However, Buffaloman possessed a 10,000,000 Power
From then on in the series, when new Choujins appear their personal Kyoudo is noted. In the final story arc, Survivor Match for the Kinniku Throne, Choujins with a 100,000,000 Power appear but are defeated by Kinnikuman, Robin Mask, and others with less than 1,000,000 Power, leading many fans to believe that the Kyoudos had very little to do with a Choujins abilities after all. In the sequel, Kinnikuman Nisei, the concept of Choujin Kyoudo is continued, but although each Choujin's personal Kyoudo is noted it is almost never important to the story and they are rarely far away from the 1,000,000 mark.
Notable uses of Choujin Kyoudo
- Buffaloman's Kinniku Buster Reversal requires him to increase his Choujin Kyoudo 10-fold.
- Buffaloman was originally a regular 1,000,000 Power Choujin, but was promised 10,000 Power from Satan for each Choujin he defeated, leading to his trademark 10,000,000 Power.
- During the Akuma Choujin Arc, Buffaloman was shown to be able to raise and lower his Choujin Kyoudo from 0 to 10,000,000 at will. When lowered to 0, he could move so fast no one could see him.
- Choujins can give amounts of their Power to other Choujins, and if they use an amount equal to a deceased Choujin's Kyoudo they can be revived. This does not work on regular humans.
