Julius Reinhold (ユリウス・ラインホルト, Yuriusu Rainhoruto; "Julius Reinhold"), also known as "The Monster", is the affiliated fighter of Toyo Electric Power Co. in the Kengan Annihilation Tournament.
Julius is a monstrously muscular person, with an overwhelmingly well-defined and bulky frame and high vascularity in his arms. He is completely bald with many veins visible on his forehead, has a notable lack of eyebrows with visibly large eyebrow ridges, a generally 'muscular' face and his small eyes hold a piercing stare. He almost always has a stern, uncaring expression on his face. Julius wears only a pair of tight black shorts.
Julius is a firm believer in the notion that brute power trumps everything, including skill. He also has no issue taking extreme measures as precaution.
One week before the tournament, Julius underwent "conditioning" that consisted of resisting against the force of an F1 race car pulling in the opposite direction. Julius proved resistant and finished by snapping the chains, causing the driver of the race car to crash and die.
Julius stood by his employer as he sent out his assassins to retrieve as many fighters positions as possible.
In the first round of the Kengan Annihilation Tournament, he represented Toyo Electric Power Co. and was set to fight Sawada Keizaburo, however Murder Music forfeited, gifting Julius the win. Very shortly after, Sawada called Julius out for the dirty tactics employed by Hayami Katsumasa. Saying he would take the three of them down, Sawada attacked and Meguro Masaki took him on first. With Meguro getting too riled up, Nikaido Ren prepared to calm him down while Julius stepped in to take care of Sawada. Taking Sawada's strongest attack, Julius ruthlessly subdued him when suddenly Yamashita Kazuo and Tokita Ohma appeared, with the former hitting Julius on the head with a can. Perceiving Yamashita to be a threat, Ren attempted to take him out, only to be left in shock when Yamashita seemingly dodged the attack. The three of them then left.

Power & AbilitiesEdit
Julius has extremely highly developed muscles, derived in part from special doping, having taken enough steroids to kill an average man. His immense muscular structure grants him colossal physical strength, durability and destructive power, as shown when remained unmoved and even pulled against an F1 race car that was trying to yank him away as well as easily snapping the specially ordered chains wrapped around his body.
Julius is also deceptively fast, being able to sprint as fast a first-rate sprinter despite his size and weight of 200 kg. Defensively, his guards can be compared to iron armor, witch can even shatter rock. And that's nothing compared to his exceptional strength, which allows him to lift extremely heavy weights overhead with one hand.
When he fought against Sawada Keizaburo, not only was he able to stop the man's full-powered kick with only his trapezius muscle, but he also broke Sawada's leg by merely clenching his hand and knocked him out by simply throwing him against the wall, with the force of the hit even shaking the building he was in as a result. When his and Wakatsuki's fists clashed, it shook the entire Kengan Dome from the emitted shockwave. He is one of two fighters who Kanoh Agito said "outclasses" Wakatsuki Takeshi, the other being Kure Raian.
Despite almost exclusively using brute force while fighting, Julius is actually extremely smart. Formerly a doctor, he created a form of doping that gave him superhuman strength and, in order to use his muscles as their full capacity, Julius also studied biology, medicine and even physics. His combination of biological knowledge and physical strength makes him an extremely dangerous combatant.
