Not to be confused with ''[[Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub Haruhi]]'' [[Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub Fujioka]].

Japanese actor, voice actor, practicing martial artist, singer and full-fledged ''national cultural icon,'' known for bringing sheer levels of total [[BadAss badassness]] to any role he plays. His claim to fame was actually his first role, playing Takeshi Hongo/Rider 1 in the first ''[[{{Series/KamenRider}} Kamen Rider]]'' series (and singing the first rendition of the theme song).

One of his best-known roles is Advertising/SegataSanshiro, as part of an ad campaign for the SegaSaturn in the 1990s. Even after the campaign ended in the titular character's HeroicSacrifice, Fujioka continued to keep a decent relationship with Sega for many years, playing Ryo Hazuki's father Iwao in flashbacks in ''{{Shenmue}}'', and appearing in person to promote the arcade game of the fourth ''Franchise/{{Rambo}}'' film.

Oh yeah, and later on he voiced Shan Yu (the leader of the Huns) in the Japanese dub of Disney's ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'' (naturally, this also extended to the original Japanese release of ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'') and Zangan in the Japanese version of ''VideoGame/CrisisCore: VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII''.

Fujioka claims that ''[[BadassGrandpa even in his sixties]]'' he's still in peak physical condition and ready to reprise his role if Ishimori Productions ever calls him. As a matter of fact, he's recently played UFDA director Reiji Osakabe--a.k.a. R0--in ''TomicaHeroRescueFire'' (who's the very definition of CoolOldGuy and OldMaster, both). In the [[Film/HeiseiRiderVsShowaRiderKamenRiderWarsFeaturingSuperSentai third Super Hero Taisen]] movie, he takes this claim to its logical conclusion by reprising his signature role as Takeshi Hongo on-screen for the first time in 38 years.

Hiroshi Fujioka is more or less Japan's equivalent of ChuckNorris where popularity and myth are concerned; the man even has [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/12408_Fujioka an asteroid]] named after him for Pete's sake.

He visited Thailand once, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcKlz0gi8IM this is the result]].

He is now [[http://twitter.com/#!/samuraihiroshi on Twitter]]. For that matter, so is [[http://twitter.com/#!/SegataSanshiro_ one of his alter egos]].
