Creation and Concept
Great Satanman was created as the result of V-Jump's Fusion Contest to create an original fused character. The winning design of Great Satanman was created by Tsuruchi Haya from the Nagano Prefecture. The contest organisers reportedly couldn't stop laughing when they first saw the fusion which was ultimately selected leading to Great Satanman being added to Dragon Ball Fusions as a QR Character.
The V-Jump article about Great Satanman refers to him using the epitaph The EX Messiah referencing the fact that Great Satanman is the EX-Fusion of Mr. Satan and Great Saiyaman.
Great Satanman wears his own version of Gohan's Great Saiyaman Suit complete with helmet though it barely conceals his afro and mustache features he inherits from Mr. Satan. The suit features a black bodysuit with an open chest like Mr. Satan. He wears the pants of Mr. Satan's Gi. Like Great Saiyaman's other EX-Fusions, Great Satanman wears his own Great Saiyaman Watch over his left-hand glove.
His pose is even fiercer now, but if he pushes himself too much, he'll throw out his back. Great Satanman does little to hide the fact that Mr. Satan is his fusee due to Mr. Satan notoriety and legend for heroism making Mr. Satan's role in said fusion obvious. However he does conceal Great Saiyaman's identity due to Gohan's influence. Like both his fusee, Great Satanman is a heroic champion of justice though he is more confident than Mr. Satan as he has access to Gohan's power and abilities.
Great Satanman has access to Gohan's power and potential making him stronger than Mr. Satan. However he apparently inherits Mr. Satan's older physique which causes him to throw his back out if he pushes himself too hard indicating he lacks Gohan's youth and physical prowess. Due to Gohan and Mr. Satan being in-laws and having heroic personalities, they have strong affinity.
