Pizza Pasta, like Kid Quick, only appeared in the arcade version of Punch-Out!!. His first and last names are references to Italian food. According to Punch-Out!! creator Genyo Takeda in his interview for the 2009 Punch-Out!! Wii title, the boxer's name "means that he sticks around and is hard to beat down", while former president of Nintendo Co. Ltd. Satoru Iwata said, "Like the way cheese on pizza is sticky."


Punch-Out!! (1984)Edit

F05 - pizza pasta

In the Punch-Out!! arcade game, he fights with basic moves, and is as quick and tough as Kid Quick; however, his most notable move is when he comes in to grab his opponent. As soon as he does this, he throws a very powerful uppercut. Players must keep punching him in the face repeatedly until he goes down. In the SNES version of Super Punch-Out!!, an Irish boxer named Aran Ryan does a superior version of Pizza Pasta's special move, where he not only grabs his opponent, but also regains his health. He is a palette swap of Piston Hurricane.
