Owada seems to be a calm and serious fighter. But he got easily furious when Baki teased him with a cocky smile that looked like he wanted to tell him he already have won. But later, Owada had grown respect for Baki; for example when he was amazed when the 17 year old boy managed to defeat all of the most skilled Shinshinkai Karate fighters, even Atsushi Suedo.
Owada is a skilled Shinshinkai Karate Fighter. Despite of that, Owada got easily deafeated by Baki Hanma, who didn't even used his full strength at all.
