Sumo Kuma is a character in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Under Jei's brainwashing, Sumo Kuma is merciless in attacking his foes, whether with his club, or dawning his sumo robes to sumo wrestle them, as he only serves Jei with utmost loyalty.
Once free of the brainwashing, Sumo Kuma is much friendlier and apologetic for his actions under Jei. He also proves his position as head monk with sagely advice to the young Kintaro as to how he could use his powers to aid the Turtles with returning home to their world and promising to raise Kintaro well in the guidance of his temple's teachings.
- Kuma means bear in Japanese.
- Sumo Kuma never appeared in the Usagi Yojimbo comics. He was created for the series.
- His club in Kagayakei! Kintaro looks similar in appearance to the weapon used by Xiahou Yuan in several of the Dynasty Warriors video games.
