Pyunma, aka 008, is one of the nine protagonists of the 1979 incarnation of Cyborg 009.

AppearanceEdit

Pyunma is an African-American with dark skin with a purplish tint while his hair and mouth have a lighter shade. His hair is styled into a short buzz cut. He is taller than Chang Changku, though shorter than his other fellow 00 Cyborgs. His face is drawn in the "Blackface" stereotype used in the manga, with an extra-bulbous nose and huge lips.

In battle, Pyunma wears a red, double-breasted military uniform with padded shoulders, black contrast bands, and four large yellow buttons on his chest and torso. On his waist is a black belt with a gun holster that holds his blaster, his main weapon. He wears knee-high black boots and a long, yellow scarf wrapped around his neck.

When not fighting, he can be seen wearing various civilian outfits.

PersonalityEdit

HistoryEdit

AbilitiesEdit

Pyunma's body has been installed with a specialized set of mechanical lungs, allowing him to breathe underwater and survive at any depth in the ocean. This makes him suitable for ocean recon and water-based combat.

NotesEdit

  • Pyunma's 1979 incarnation was the last to be drawn with the traditional "Blackface" appearance from the manga, until his character was redesigned in Legend of the Super Galaxy.
  • While most official sources, even to this day, listed Pyunma's home as simply "Africa", the 1979 series denotes Kenya as his home country in a letter in episode 4. However, this would not be reflected in the manga until 1992.
