Aran Ryan (アラン・ライアン, Aran Raian) is a character from the Punch-Out!! series. He first appeared in Super Punch-Out!! for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System as a boxer from Dublin, Ireland, and went on to appear in the Wii game Punch-Out!!. In the Wii game, Aran Ryan is one of the few characters from Super Punch-Out!! (note: SNES version) to make an appearance. He is twenty three years old in the series and weighs 160 pounds.

The game Punch-Out!! shows him with a design change. Also, his personality is fleshed out. He is a crafty, cheating Irishman who clearly breaks the rules. He is incredibly hyperactive in this game, and never stands still in the same place for more than a few seconds. To do any real damage to him, the player must counter all of his attacks. He is not above using headbutts, elbows, and even a weapon (a weighted boxing glove ties to a rope) to win.

During the second time he fights Little Mac, the crowd knows he's cheating and throw trash at him. Also, the Ref tries to restrain him, but is assaulted by him. It is safe to say that Aran Ryan is a little insane.
