Article on Wikipedia Doc Louis

Doc Louis (ドック・ルイス, Doc Louis) is a non-playable character from the Punch-Out!! series. He is a retired boxer who trains Little Mac in the NES and Wii Punch-Out!! games.

Origin[edit]

Doc Louis first appeared in Punch-Out!!. He is an ex-heavyweight boxing champion and Little Mac's coach. He can be seen training him throughout the Punch-Out!! series, and is the sparring opponent in Doc Louis's Punch-Out!!, a WiiWare game serving as a spinoff of the Punch-Out!! Wii game.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Doc Louis does not appear in Brawl in person, but he is mentioned in the description of Little Mac's trophy.

In Super Smash Bros. 4[edit]

Doc Louis appears in Little Mac's trailer for Super Smash Bros. 4, where he is seen training him, as well as narrating the gameplay portion of the trailer as advice called out to Mac. He appears in all of Little Mac's victory poses in the game itself, briefly sparring with him and cheering him on. Occasionally when Little Mac taunts in game, Doc can be heard cheering for him. These clips change with Little Mac's size, and can even play when Little Mac is metal. A real life Doc Louis also appears in an American commercial for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS.

He also appears as an item in Smash Tour: he boosts by 1.5x the effect of all powerups gathered in the turn his trophy is selected.

Victory pose dialogue[edit]

In all of Little Mac's victory poses, Doc is seen saying one of the following phrases:

  • "(in tandem with the announcer) And the winner is... Little Mac! Hahaha!"
  • "Y'know, that belt looks good on you, son."
  • "Ya got what it takes, Mac!"
  • "Nice work, Mac. You got it all figured out."
  • "Way to go, Mac! You're the champ, baby!"
  • "You win, Mac!"
  • "Alright! I think I hear a chocolate bar callin'."
  • "Was that a little too easy for ya, son?"
  • "World Circuit's all yours Mac!"
  • "Ahh, winnin' feels good, don't it?"

In addition, Doc will say one of the following phrases if Little Mac is in his wireframe attire.

  • "Nice moves, Mac. I could barely keep my eyes on ya, son."
  • "Ain't you flashy? You making my eyes water, son."
  • "You're lookin' mighty good, son. Just like old times, huh?"

Ntsc Every great boxer needs a capable teacher. Little Mac lucked out with former famous heavyweight Doc Louis. If he's not eating his favorite chocolate bar or making jokes, he's sparring with Little Mac. He'll gladly take a knockout blow from Little Mac if it will help the boxer make it big!
Pal Behind every great boxer is a first-class coach, and energetic former heavy-weight champion Doc Louis is Little Mac's. Now and then, he'll put his chocolate bar down, his game face on, and spar with Little Mac, throwing punches just like in his glory days. No one's happier to take a knockout blow from Little Mac than Doc Louis!
