Notable Shinnipporian locations Edit

- Fire Station 69 - where Billy Herrington used to work fighting fire outbreaks.
- Atlas Auto Wreckers Junkyard/Tsuyoshi Industries ((有)ツヨシ工業, Tsuyoshi Kougyou) - where cars are being fixed or dismantled for spare parts, or where wrestlers also battle each other with a bath of water guns. Became one of the biggest businesses within the Marakawa Ward.

- Cosmetology (established in AD 720)
- History (1810, initially about Shinnippori)
- English language (1690, most likely through trading with the Dutch from Nagasaki due to national isolation. Possibly also used soramimi to transcribe English dialogue, though the incident with a British ship in 1808 emphasized education on properly translating the English language for interpreters)
- Foreign/Asian languages (presumably started since the Asuka or Nara periods as the nation of Japan sought to emulate Chinese imperial society)
- Literature and calligraphy (AD 1172)
- Oil painting (AD 440)

Scenes of Shinnipporian lifeEdit
Shinnippori in reports by the Japanese fandomEdit
- Shinnippori's name is based on the mishearing of Danny Lee's utterance as he was wrestling Billy Herrington, "Two can play it!"
- "Shinnippori!" can also be heard between the "commercials" in the trailers for the International Wrestling Festivals' videos, in which the logo for each collaboration is shown.
- The kanji for "Shinnippori" (新日暮里) appear as a decoration (such as in the IWF collabs), but like the Kai-San-Kyo (戒賛許) they may also serve as reminders for the Fairy Philosophy.
- Shinnippori's name is based on the real-life interchange railway station, Nippori Station (日暮里駅 "Nippori-eki"), which is located in Arakawa, Tokyo, Japan.
- Chinese fans tend to misspell Shinnippori's kanji as "新日幕里" ("幕" (meaning "curtain" or "act", instead of "暮" meaning "twilight")
- Shinnippori should not be confused with Singapore, a real-world city-state republic in Southeast Asia.
Et cetera Edit
- Sometimes, "Shinnippori University" (新日暮里大学) and "Shinnippori High School" (新日暮里高校) are mentioned. They are among other locations that reference "Shinnippori" as the hypothetical setting for many Gachimuchi sources (e.g. a video of an airplane would be "Shinnippori Air", while police arresting an arsonist would be "Shinnippori Police").
- Furthermore, in fanon, many of the facilities and amenities in Shinnippori tend to have names that are vulgar puns.
- From sources such as "Tales From The Foxhole", Shinnippori's armed forces tend to consist mostly of infantry.
