Bolo is a supporting character of the Shantae series. This young and hot-headed warrior is Shantae's friend and sparring partner. He was the one to teach her, some of her fighting moves. Bolo is described by Shantae as a "block-head hero for hire", he springs to life when he has occasion to fight, however, he is often left behind by the main protagonist. While not being too bright, Bolo possesses incredible determination and will to fight. He has a weakness for older women and can be deceived by them rather easily (which was proven when Risky seduced him and then knocked him off)
