KUNOICHI 2001 , colloquially as KUNOICHI 1. (officially KUNOICHI2001冬, literally KUNOICHI 2001 Winter, as well as KUNOICHI Muscle Ranking Special)

This tournament marked the first KUNOICHI of the first reboot.

  • KUNOICHI 2001 aired as the winter Kinniku Banzuke special. Commercials announcing the tournament stated the following:
筋肉番付 2001冬スペシャル!!

(Muscle Ranking 2001 Winter Special)

Origin

With the previous era of KUNOICHI being scrapped, producers met in late 2001 and came up with a reboot of KUNOICHI for Kinniku Banzuke.

Within weeks, 70 competitors were scouted to compete in this tournament by visiting various colleges, pubs, everyday workplaces, and as well as a preliminary trials held through MUSCLE GYM segments on Kinniku Banzuke.

  • For the first time, KUNOICHI was also hosted outdoors and the course was multi-staged.

While it was hoped that the results would be better than KUNOICHI 1999 and 2000, the newly designed obstacles were so difficult that only two women, Yusa Masami and Yamada Miho, were able to clear the 1st STAGE. In the 2nd STAGE, they both failed the first obstacle, leaving the remainder of the Stage untouched, and the FINAL STAGE unknown.
