Yakisobapanman's head is based on bread and fried noodles. He wears a brown hat, an orange outfit with the letter Y, a green bandana, a yellow belt, and red boots and gloves.
Yakisobapanman can be seen riding a horse. He has a sister named Yakisobakasu-chan. Yakisobapanman attacks with spatulas that act as boomerangs. He throws his weapon cutting anything in it's path before returning to him.
Yakisobapanman first appears on the episode "Anpanman and Yakisobapanman" (January 22, 1999). His sister did not appear until an episode in the next month, called "Anpanman and Yakisobakasu". Afterwards, both made more appearances in the anime, establishing them as popular minor characters.
The two have appeared in Anpanman live theatre performances.
