Fu Manchu has a long [[GoodHairEvilHair Evil Moustache]] in the famous [[ShapedLikeItself "Fu Manchu" style]]. [[note]]The Moustache is a bit of a BeamMeUpScotty -- in the original books he was clean-shaven.[[/note]] He has squinty eyes: pure YellowPeril. He is a {{Chessmaster}} setting up ThePlan and he's as much of a KarmaHoudini as the codes of production allow.
