- This article is about the Downtown Nekketsu series character. For the Nekketsu Kōha Kunio-kun character, see Tōru (Nekketsu Kōha Kunio-kun). For other uses, see Tōru (disambiguation).
Maeda (前田, まえだ Maeda), full name Maeda Tōru (前田亨, まえだ とおる Maeda Tōru) is a third year student of Hanazono High School. He was a former rival of Riki. He first debuted in Downtown Nekketsu Kōshinkyoku: Soreyuke Daiundōkai.
Although his given name is Tōru, Maeda is not the same character with the same name from Nekketsu Kōha Kunio-kun, nor the character that appears in the juvenile prison in Shin Nekketsu Kōha: Kunio-tachi no Banka. Fans have made this connection in some dōjin games however, such as the one based on Nekketsu Kōkō Dodgeball Bu in which Tōru is given Maeda's face.
- In River City Ransom EX, Maeda was renamed to Rick.
