The Invincible Dragon. Trained in the Kyokugen Style of Karate by his father Takuma, Ryo was forced to care for himself and his younger sister when he was 10 after their mother Lonette died in a car accident and their father disappeared shortly afterward. He makes his living by earning money on street fights. Whenever she saw Ryo in such condition, Yuri's desire to run away became greater. When Yuri is kidnapped by Mr. Big, Ryo and his friend, Robert, scour Southtown while battling its toughest enforcers and Mob bosses to rescue her, finding out that his father was still alive under the guise of Mr. Karate. After the incident, Ryo went to the mountains to train himself in combat, only to return to to Southtown a year later to participate in the King of Fighters tournament sponsored by Geese Howard. Despite beating him, Geese had managed to escape.

After these events, Ryo goes to Mexico in search of Robert.

Ryo has been voiced by Tetsuya Bessho (OAV, JP) and Marcelo Campos (OAV, EN).

The Raging Tiger. The son of multi-billionaire businessman, Alberto Garcia. To teach Robert humility and discipline, Alberto sent him to Takuma's dojo, where he met and befriended Takuma's children: Ryo and Yuri. Despite their initial differences, he and Ryo developed a mutual respect for one another's abilities, eventually becoming both friend and rival to each other. He developed a different kind of relationship with Yuri...which was carefully monitored by her father and brother. Robert returned home to Italy, after completing his training, where his father began teaching him the family business. Years later, he receives word of Yuri's kidnapping and rejoins Ryo. The two of them search Southtown, facing many of its worst criminals and Mob bosses to find her. They eventually learn that Mr. Big orchestrated Yuri's abduction and defeat him. After the incident, Robert trained himself in combat, only to return to to Southtown a year later to participate in the King of Fighters tournament sponsored by Geese Howard.

After these events, Robert visited Mexico to help Freya Lawrence, a childhood friend, save her brother Wyler. Wyler is attempting to perfect a drug that will enhance one's physical characteristics to superhuman levels. Robert beats Wyler, but due to the usage of the drug his mind has been destroyed. Freya, concerned for Wyler's well being, decides to stay with him in order to take care of him, and the adventure comes to an end.

[[quoteright:138:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aofryuhakutodoh_1342.jpg]]

Ryuhaku Todoh is the creator and main teacher of Todoh style karate, which derives its style from Aikido and Kendo. Todoh had a long standing rivalry with disciples of the Kyokugenryu school of karate and considers them a threat to his style of teaching in terms of profits as well as personal animosity dating back to a rivalry with Takuma Sakazaki when both men were very young. On his quest to find his younger sister Yuri, who had been abducted by Mr. Big under Geese Howard's orders, Ryo Sakazaki blatantly attacked Todoh at his school and fought him to interrogate him about the whereabouts of his sister. After Ryo easily defeated Todoh, he was humiliated and saw his schools finances as well as his attendance at his schools suffer. After the loss, Todoh went into hiding and hasn't been seen since. Because of his disappearance, his daughter Kasumi went on a personal quest to not only try to look for her father, but to gain revenge on Ryo and all Kyokugenryu disciples to try to reclaim her family's honor.

Todoh has been voiced by Creator/TakeshiAono in ''[[VideoGame/CapcomVsSNK2MarkOfTheMillennium Capcom vs. SNK 2]]'', carried over from the anime, and by Creator/JimmyZoppi in the dub of the OVA.

One of Southtown's most feared crimelords, who formerly operated under [[VideoGame/FatalFury Geese Howard]] (whom he loathes). However, they were concerned that Takuma would be a potential threat, so Geese had Big orchestrate his daughter's (Yuri) abduction, to use as leverage against him; leaving Takuma no choice but to work for them. This eventually lead to Takuma's son, Ryo and his student, Robert's involvement, and ultimately resulted in Big's defeat. And he's had it in for them ever since. Despite being the main antagonist of the series, he doesn't serve as the final boss in any of the ''Art of Fighting'' games.

Mr. Big has been voiced by Creator/IemasaKayumi in the OAV.

Takuma Sakazaki originally came to South Town in hopes of spreading Kyokugenryu's influence. Naturally, being a martial artist of great renown, this made him a cause for concern for Geese Howard, who was the Police Commissioner at that time. By using his criminal connections, he soon learned that Takuma's son and daughter were also in South Town, unbeknownst to Takuma. Geese used this to his advantage and had Mr. Big arrange to have Yuri abducted, to use as leverage against her father. Now under the guise of "Mr. Karate", he regrettably became their top enforcer.

Sometime afterwards, Takuma began to hear rumors that his son, Ryo, and his student, Robert had begun searching for her and was proud to learn they were defeating some of Big's top henchmen. Which included some of his old rivals, such as Ryuhaki Todoh and Lee Pai Long. Eventually, he even got wind that Big, himself, had been defeated by his student and found himself facing his son not long afterward. Their fight was an intense one, but Ryo's drive to save his sister gave him the strength to overcome his own father. Though Yuri intervened before Ryo could finish him with his Haoh Shoko Ken and explained who he was and how he'd been conscripted by Geese. Ryo understood and Takuma returned home with his family to resume his rightful place as head of their dojo.

The following year, he entered the first chronological ''[[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters King of Fighters]]'' tournament (''[=AoF=] 2'') to exact his revenge on Geese and Mr. Big.

Since then, he has continued to push himself and his students to greater heights, believing that Kyokugenryu is constantly evolving and is without limit. As such, he makes it a point to enter the annual ''King of Fighters'', to promote their school in hopes of further spreading it's influence by attracting new students.

[[quoteright:187:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aofwyler_9905.jpg]]

Wyler is looking for Freia Lawrence, the daughter of his dead father's former partner, who possesses information about a formula for some kind of "Jekyll and Hyde" formula that he is attempting to create. The essential data needed for completing it was taken by Freia's father when the two's partnership broke up. Wyler believes this action is the cause of his father becoming destitute and even the cause of his death. Freia now has the data.

Wyler hires the private investigator partnership of Rody Birts and Lenny Creston to find her (they are convinced it is for romantic reasons). Freia is also being sought out by her old childhood friend Robert Garcia. Wyler finds Freia, though seemingly without the help of the private eyes he hired, completes his elixir and takes it himself, turning into a large Hulk-like man. However, it has an unforeseen after-effect and reverts his mind to a child-like state. Freia chose to stay and tend to him...
