Fatal Fury: King of Fighters

    Terry Bogard - USA
Voiced by: note 

The main protagonist of the series who happens to be an expert street fighter. A young man who grew up in Southtown, he and his young brother Andy were adopted by Jeff Bogard, a rival martial arts student of Geese Howard. Out of spite and jealously, Geese had killed Jeff in front of him, and both Terry and Andy seek revenge against him. After countless battles and many struggles, Terry defeats Geese from within their last fight at the top of Geese's personal tower building (and tries to save Geese from falling off in the end, only to see that Geese had refused his help and allowed himself to fall to his own death) and in due time, Terry adopts Geese's young son, Rock, to raise and ensure that he doesn't go down the same path as Geese himself.

    Andy Bogard - USA

Voiced by: note 

The younger brother of Terry and a McNinja. He was taught a basic form of Shuranui ninjitsu by Mai's grandfather Hanzo. After hearing of his father Jeff's death at the hands of Geese Howard, he joins forces with Terry and Joe Higashi, and the three of them enter Geese's King of Fighters tournament. Although Andy fights Geese first, he loses badly, and Terry finishes the villain off... maybe. He's also the apple of Mai's eye, although he rejects her advances.

    Joe Higashi - Japan
Voiced by: note 

A Japanese man who is well versed in the fighting art of Muay Thai. He is the best friend and friendly rival of both Bogard brothers and helped them fight against Geese and his henchmen in the first game. After that, well...

    Richard Meyer - Brazil

A Brazilian Capoeira master who happens to be the owner of the Pao Pao Cafe, a popular Southtown drinking spot. He competed in the first King of Fighters tournament, but after losing in the competition, he had decided step into the background and focus more on his restaurant. Throughout the series, he can be seen running the Pao Pao Cafe in cutscenes (and in Bob's intro in the third game).

  • Dance Battler - His fighting style is Capoeira. He was the first fighting game character to use it.

  • Retired Badass - Passed the torch to Bob.
  • Unexpected Character - Nobody expected him to return in Maximum Impact 2 as a playable fighter.

    Billy Kane - England
Voiced by: note 

Geese Howard's British right-hand man. He wields a staff that freely separates into multiple chained sections, and which he can light on fire. His devotion to Geese is total, and if you want to get to Geese, you have to go through Billy. Only his sister is closer to him.

    Geese Howard - USA
Voiced by:: note 

The Big Bad. Formerly the Chief of Police for Southtown (as seen in Art of Fighting 2), he stepped down from that role when he decided crime was more profitable. He killed Jeff Bogard when Tung Fu Rue chose Jeff to inherit his secrets, and has a vendetta against Bogard's sons as well. Waterfowl names were never so scary before.

Fatal Fury 2 and Fatal Fury Special

    Mai Shiranui - Japan
Voiced by: note

    Wolfgang Krauser - Germany

Practices Kyokugenryu karate, which was created by his father. Originally appeared in Fatal Fury Special as a hidden boss character. Canonically, he is considerably older than the main cast of Fatal Fury, which is reflected in his second appearance during Wild Ambition (where he uses the moniker "Mr. Karate II", which is taken from his father's on-again, off-again persona).

Fatal Fury 3

    "Blue" Mary Ryan - USA

A Southtown freelance agent who takes up any case that comes her way. Had a boyfriend named Butch who was killed on duty when working as a Secret Service agent. Practices Combat Sambo in her spare time and has a dog named Anton.

A Capoeira student of Richard Meyer. Works at the Pao Pao Cafe with Richard and trains in Capoeria from within his spare time. Also manages the second branch of the Pao Pao Cafe.

    Franco Bash - USA

An Italian-American former kickboxing Super Heavyweight champion whose great strength is matched only by his big heart. Having retired from kickboxing, he was working as an airplane mechanic in Southtown when his son was kidnapped by Yamazaki to draw him into the battle for Jin's secret scrolls. In Real Bout, he resolves to make a comeback, with his wife's blessing.

    Hon Fu - Hong Kong
Voiced by: note 

An eccentric police officer from Hong Kong and an old friend of Cheng Sinzan. Though klutzy and a little headstrong, he is diligent and popular among his colleagues. His pursuit of Yamazaki brought him to Southtown and the battle for the scrolls. His weapon of choice is a pair of nunchaku, which are set ablaze during some of his special moves.

  • Arch-Enemy - To Yamazaki. This carries onto the Capcom vs. SNK series, where Hon Fu joins up with Chun-Li to bust Yamazaki and cameos in her intro pose with Yamazaki in CvS1 and CvS2.
  • Bruce Lee Clone - Subverted. He has the nunchaku and trademark high-pitched Kiai, but he takes more pages from Jackie Chan.
  • Butt-Monkey - Hon-Fu is prone to slapstick misfortune, from jump-kicking through windows and subsequently faceplanting or hitting himself in the head or crotch to setting his posterior on fire in the fake version of his flaming uppercut move.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass - His kindly demeanour and streak of bad luck notwithstanding, he is a master of Northern Style Kung-Fu and the nunchaku.
  • Expy - Of Jackie Chan.
  • Fighting with Chucks
  • Flanderization - While he was always somewhat clumsy and quirky, he gradually turned into an out-and-out goofball, culminating with his Real Bout 2 P.Power attack: he hits the ground with his nunchaku, causing an explosion which leaves his clothes singed and him with a dumbfounded expression.
  • Groin Attack - Unusually and hilariously enough, it is not directed towards his opponent, but rather towards himself. Should you use his Honoo no Taneba and neglect to keep pressing the A button, Hon-Fu will accidentally hit himself in the crotch, then jump up and down in pain while covering it with his hands. As a Real Bout Special FAQ put it, "Stop pressing to hit dick."
  • The Klutz
  • Playing with Fire
  • Justice Will Prevail - He's a Super Cop. Besides helping to introduce Kim to his wife Myeng Swuk, the two are good friends due to their shared interest in upholding justice. Oddly enough, Hon Fu isn't nearly as justice-obsessed as Kim is. And Kim isn't a police officer.
  • The Worf Effect - When Terry, Andy or Joe faces Yamazaki for the second time in Fatal Fury 3, he has already curb-stomped Hon-Fu.

    Sokaku Mochizuki - Japan
Voiced by: note 

A monk of a Buddhist order that has a steep rivalry with the Shiranui clan (the clan Mai belongs to and that Andy trained under). Wields a staff that he can magically control. He had arrived in Southtown to destroy the Jin scrolls, which he perceives as a great evil.

    Ryuji Yamazaki - Japan
Voiced by: note 

An unhinged, murderous Yakuza, hired by the Jin brothers to look for the Jin Scrolls while serving as their bodyguard. Fighting with a self-taught version of Okinawan karate, he also carries a large knife and won't hesitate to use it. ''The King of Fighters '97'' reveals that he possesses the blood of the Orochi, which explains a lot.

  • A Handful for an Eye: Subverted; One of his moves involves him kicking sand/dirt into his opponent's face.
  • Animal Motifs - The snake, as seen during his Sadomaso tongue-flicking taunt.
  • Ax-Crazy
  • Bloody Murder - After a fashion. His secret 5th level of his Drill super has Yamazaki throwing multiple Double Return projectiles, which makes it look like he is spraying his opponents with his blood.
  • The Bus Came Back: He finally makes his return as a DLC character in KOF XIV.
  • Catch and Return - One of his specials consists of grabbing energy projectile attacks and then nonchalantly flinging them back at the opponent at breakneck speed.
  • Chekhov's Gunman - His status as one of the Orochi Hakkesshu didn't come into perspective until his Crossover into KOF and is a partial explanation for his insanity.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: In the King Of Fighters games. He hasn't appeared since KOF 2003, and no real explanation has been given as to where or why he's gone. He does return in KOF XIV, however.
  • Coat Cape - His pre-battle intro has him standing in front of his opponent with a fine fur coat draped over his shoulders. He then walks away from his opponent and discards it as he takes his position for the start of the match.
  • Combat Sadomasochist - One of his moves is even named Sadomaso. He taunts by sticking out his tongue, and if he is hit, he takes no damage but instead counters with a vicious attack of his own.
  • Dark and Troubled Past - Aside from the above, his drama CD reveals that Yamazaki lived a happy life as a mobster until his boss was killed, prompting Yamazaki to snap and become the psycho we know, love, and fear.
  • The Dragon: His boss is Jin Chonshu in Fatal Fury 3.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Turns down Yashiro's offer to join the Hakkeshu. Besides, if Orochi destroys everything, there'd be nobody for Yamazaki to fight against.
  • Fingerless Gloves
  • Flanderization - His Fatal Fury self started out as a ruthless and sadistic but mostly sane mobster. In the more cartoonish RBS, his malicious chuckle made way for a maniacal laugh and he gained an unsettling "Ikuzo... Ikuzo... IKUZO!" chant while charging his Snake Arms. His KOF incarnation was based on this version, and would gradually (d)evolve into a slavering lunatic whose MAX2 sees him grabbing and tossing opponents using his mouth. YMMV on what version is the most appealing.
  • Fur and Loathing - Just look at that pimp coat.
  • Hunk
  • The Insomniac: He apparently has no problem staying awake for up to three days at a time.
  • Knife Nut
  • Maniacal Laugh - With excessive drooling/foaming at the mouth.
  • Multicolored Hair
  • Played for Laughs - His Snake Arm move is seen as a high-speed bitch slap.
  • Psycho for Hire
  • Rubber Man
  • Trying to Catch Me Fighting Dirty - Combat Pragmatist turned Up to 11. He kicks sand in his opponents' eyes and stomps on their crotches... repeatedly. If that doesn't do it, he'll bring out his foot-long knife.
    • Drill. Brutal with a capital, italicized, and bolded B.
    • His Guillotine super also involves him dragging his opponent across the ground. (and in some cases, he ends it by repeatedly stomping and kicking them)
  • Whip It Good: His trademark Snake Arm attack, which might as well be a variation of the Flicker Jab.
  • With My Hands Tied - Always keeps one hand his pockets... unless he's stabbing you to death with his knife.

    Jin Chonshu - China
Voiced by: note 

One half of the Jin brothers who had hired Yamazaki in order to search for the Jin scrolls, a powerful tome that is part of their ancestry. Said to be very stubborn and headstrong, with an inability to understand defeat.

  • Affably Evil: In Fatal Fury 3 and Real Bout. He drops the act starting in Special.
  • Big Bad: of Fatal Fury 3. This is also one of the two members of a Big Bad Ensemble in Real Bout Fatal Fury with the other competing Big Bad being Geese Howard.
  • Bilingual Bonus/It Is Pronounced "Tro-PAY": Their names are written in Japanese in a more broken-form of Chinese, though the real ways to say his name are as follows:
    • Chinese/pinyin: Qin Chongxiu (Chee-n Choh-ng-she-oh).
    • Japanese/on'yomi: Shin Suushuu (also a case of Spell My Name with an "S" via the final part of his name having an extended vowel via the spelling "Chonshuu").
  • Blue Oni: In stark defiance to his choice of color, Chonshu is the calmer, more easy going of the pair, at least outwardly.
  • Chinese People
  • Divergent Character Evolution: The pair get more and more different properties and moves as time goes on.
  • The Dreaded: It's implied during his ending in Fatal Fury 3 and Neo Geo Battle Colosseum, that if the Jin Twins were to ever reawaken as their "true selves", that Chonshu would actually be the worst of the two.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: ...and sounds like one too. To this day, there are gamers who still believe that Chonshu is really a girl. The fact that he wears eyeliner, while some of his official art also shows him with lipstick, further confuses the issue.
  • Guyliner: In red, from his upper eyelashes, to the corners of her eyes.
  • Final Boss: Of Fatal Fury 3, unless you've met the necessary criteria to face Chonrei.
  • Harmful to Minors: His backstory.
  • Immortality Seeker: This is one of the reasons he is looking for the Jin scrolls.
  • Power Floats: Seen during his victory pose, where he levitates and snickers at his opponent.
  • Powers via Possession: His power comes from his ancestor's spirit possessing him. He is seeking the Jin scrolls to unlock his and his brother's possessing spirits for more power.
  • Sealed in a Person-Shaped Can: So long as the Jin Scrolls remain sealed, that is...
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Sensitive Guy to Chonrei's Manly Man.
  • Shoto Clone: Both he and and brother, though they lack an equivalent of a Hurricane Kick.
  • Teleport Spam: His forward and backdash animations causes him to teleport, as do several of his special attacks.
  • Twin Telepathy
  • Unflinching Walk: If you simply hold forward, he casually (albeit, still menacingly) stalks up to his opponent.

    Jin Chonrei - China
Voiced by: note 

Chonshu's brother and the ultimate opponent of Fatal Fury 3. Protector of his brother to a near-fanatical degree. Following Fatal Fury 3, supposedly both brothers mellow out and enter Tung Fu Rue's tutelage.

Real Bout Fatal Fury 2

    Li Xiangfei - USA
Voiced by: note 

A Chinese-American girl from the Chinatown district of Southtown, part-time waitress and full-time face-stuffer. She knows Kung Fu.

  • Anime Chinese Girl: Made readily apparent by her hairstyle and her attire.
    • But Not Too Foreign: Although she is of Chinese ancestry, Xiangfei was born and raised in Southtown, making her Chinese-American.
  • Big Eater: One of her two main defining character traits, though it's mainly seen during her team endings in the King of Fighters series.
  • Cute Bruiser: She cute, she's hyper, and she hits with the force of a bullet train.
    • Lightning Bruiser: Invoked during some of her specials, which are preceded with a sudden burst of speed.
  • Flash Step: Her Taitesujin HDM (seen at 3:30-3:32) has her stomp the ground, then suddenly teleport across screen and shoulder check her opponent.
  • Forehead of Doom:
  • Fun Personified: Xiangfei takes her job as a waitress seriously, but mainly competes for fun.
  • Genki Girl: Her other defining character trait, which is on a level near rivalling Yuri Sakazaki's in terms of sheer childishness. In other words, she's a goofball.
  • Hammer Space: Seen during her victory poses, where one of them has her whip out a pair of jian from thin air.
  • I Shall Taunt You: From making faces and sticking out her tongue, to simply pointing and laughing.
  • Ki Attacks
  • Ocular Gushers: If she loses due to time expiring, she falls to her knees and turns on the waterworks ala Soun Tendo.
  • Odango Hair: Her hair is done up in what's commonly referred to as "Ox Horns", with a looped pair of braids.
  • Spam Attack: Majinga deals 100 hits, while the HDM version varies from 101-108 hits depending on the game.
  • Teen Genius: She's said to be a prodigy at the martial art form that she uses, and is already competiting against heavyweights like Terry and co. at age 17.

Garou: Mark of the Wolves

    Rock Howard - USA
Voiced by: note 

Son of Geese and adopted by Terry. Has a grudge against his father for abandoning him and his mother which caused her death though Kain says otherwise. Although his fighting skills were taught by Terry, he somehow acquired some of Geese's attacks as well. He entered the tournament to find information about his mother.

    Bonne Jenet - England

A rich aristocrat who fled from her parents to become a captain of a crew of modern-day pirates out of sheer boredom. Became interested when she found out that the sponsor of the tournament was quite wealthy. Quite the Attention Whore. (When she runs, she waves.)

    Gato - Unknown (implied to be Japan)
Voiced by: note 

A cold and stoic martial artist who is well-versed in Chinese martial arts involving powerful strikes. He is Hotaru's brother although he constantly denies it. He enters the tournament to prove he is the strongest and get revenge on his father.

    Hotaru Futaba - Japan

Gato's little sister who is well-versed in Chinese martial arts involving soft strikes and ki blasts. She enters the tournament hoping she could convince her brother to come back to her.

    Tizoc/Griffon Mask - Mexico

A Mexican Luchador wearing a griffon mask. He enters the tournament for his fans and for charity. At the end of the tournament, he retires but comes back anyway after he caught a glimpse of a young fan who admires him.

    Freeman - England

A nihilistic British Serial Killer who lives for life-and-death thrills and views his murders as works of art. A year prior to the events of Mot W, he killed Kevin Rian's partner, who was also the father of Marky.

  • Ax-Crazy - Oh boy, that's an understatement.
  • Barbarian Long Hair - He's a serial killer with long messy hair. You can't be any more barbarian than that.
  • Bare Your Midriff - His outfit can be described as Benimaru Goes Goth.
  • Black Cloak - During his introduction.
  • Blood Knight - Obsessed with the concept of death to an almost comical degree.
  • Composite Character - In addition to his character traits bringing to mind Iori Yagami, he also wears the above-mentioned Benimaru-esque outfit and fights similarly to Mature and Vice (with heavy metal-themed attack names to match).
  • Counter Attack - His Creeping Death super attack just has him walk forward. However, if his opponent tries a physical attack, cue Gory Discretion Shot.
  • Evil Albino
  • Evil Redhead
  • The Faceless - His face is never shown (and is hidden under his bangs in his sprite), save for a cameo in The King of Fighters 2002: Unlimited Match, but it's too small to make out his features properly.
  • Gory Discretion Shot - One of his DM/SDMs, Creeping Death, has him viciously attacking his opponent in the dark.
  • Mad Artist - He thinks of granting someone a "beautiful death" as doing his victims a great service.
  • Maniacal Laugh
  • Mistaken Identity - He's extremely reminiscent of Iori Yagami from The King of Fighters. He also bears a more-than-passing resemblance to Remy, who himself looks similar to Iori.
  • Never Found the Body - He's shot by SWAT teams in his ending and falls into a river, his fate never revealed.
    • Put on a Bus - And this is the main excuse for why he hasn't appeared in anything since Garou Mot W.
  • Serial Killer
  • Shout-Out - Not only does his fighting style resemble that of Mature and Vice, he also follows their tradition of naming his attacks after heavy metal bands. His Round 1 winquote is "Kono akumu he... youkoso", which essentially means "Welcome to my nightmare."
  • Wolverine Claws - At least partially subverted. Some pieces of artwork depict him with long fingernails, but like the aforementioned Iori, Mature and Vice, he seems to shred opponents with his fingertips.

    Hokutomaru - Japan
Voiced by: note 

Andy's young and brash apprentice. Upon learning of a tournament, he comes to the city for the first time and causes a huge mess in a road intersection.

    Kevin Rian - USA

    Khushnood Butt/Marco Rodriguez - Brazil

A Brazilian Kyokugen-ryu practitioner who enters the tournament for the sake of advertising his dojo for new students. He was left in charge of the dojo by Ryo Sakazaki when he went training. At the end of the tournament, his dojo gets trashed anyway so he goes to look for the guy who did it.

    Kim Dong Hwan - South Korea

Kim Kaphwan's eldest son and Jae Hoon's brother. A slacker who uses unorthodox methods of fighting as he would prefer to hit on women than practice.

    Kim Jae Hoon - South Korea

Kim Kaphwan's youngest son and Dong Hwan's brother. He resembles his father in the sense that he upholds a high sense of justice (even more than Kevin, who is a cop) and often scolds his brother for not practicing.

    Grant (Abel Cameron) - USA

Kain's best friend and most trusted bodyguard. When Kain and Grant were children, they saw a young boy who was beaten up by some older boys. The young boy didn't fight back and eventually died from the beating, thus the two adopted the philosophy of survival of the fittest. Their bond is so strong, he took a gunshot for Kain in one assassination attempt. Despite this wound, he's still one of the most powerful people to face against in the tournament.

    Kain R. Heinlein - USA

Geese Howard's brother-in-law and Rock Howard's uncle. He holds the Maximum Mayhem Tournament for the strong to compete against each other. He personally fights the victor in a showdown of who's the strongest. He took over Southtown after Geese's disappearance and, according to Rock's ending, was only following only the will of Geese. Despite this, he holds great contempt against Geese for taking away his sister though he doesn't show it often.

  • Ascended Extra - Only for this game. Makes a cameo later as one of the Lillien Knights under B. Jenet's service.
  • Shout-Out - His father, mother, and sister are respectively named Darren, Samantha, and Tabitha and his dog is named Lassie. Somebody at SNK must have been a big fan of 1960's Hollywood sitcoms.

Anime specials and The Motion Picture

    Jeff Bogard - USA 
Voiced by: note 

He is the father of Terry Bogard and Andy Bogard, and once a disciple of Tung Fu Rue. His age is not known, but he was older than his former companion Geese Howard before his death... at the hands of said former companion, who was Driven by Envy since he got passed up as the successor of the secret Hakkyokuseiken techniques to favor Jeff. This happened in front of Jeff's sons, who swear to get even with Geese, and this pretty much gets the ball of the whole Fatal Fury plot rolling...

    Lily McGuire  
Voiced by: note 

In the first anime special, she first appears a little girl whom Geese forces to get involved in the circumstances that lead to Jeff Bogard's death. Flash forward to ten years, and we see her as the "Queen of South Town," a beautiful Femme Fatale who is a part of Geese's entourage. Deep down, though, still feels guilty for the part she took in the aforementioned tragedy.

  • Birds of a Feather: Part of the reason that she and Terry fall in love is because of the fact that they both can relate to the harshness and trials of growing up in Southtown.
  • Break the Cutie: Oh God, does she get broken...
  • Broken Bird: Her self-worth never was very good, but after the tragic incident it took a massive nosedive.
  • The Cameo: In The King of Fighters '94, she can be seen among the crowd (and alongside Geese) in the Mexico stage.
  • Decoy Damsel: To be fair it NOT by choice: not only she was a little girl, but Geese forced her to play the role to get Jeff killed.
  • Destination Defenestration: How she dies. More exactly, Lily is cornered by Geese when she's about to escape with the Bogards and an injured Joe; she's right in front of a third story window, Geese unleashes a Reppuken on her, and then...
  • Failure Knight
  • Femme Fatale
  • Friend to All Children: We see that she's not The Vamp when Terry catches her giving food, money and affection to the local street children.
  • Hard-Drinking Party Girl/The Tease: In her first apparition as an adult, Lily seems to be slightly drunk and also consumes some more alcohol on-screen. The truth behind her behavior, however, is much sadder and bitter.
  • High-Heel–Face Turn
  • Hooker with a Heart of Gold: More implied than anything. She's very beautiful, curvy, nicknamed the "Queen of South Town", first wears a white dress with a generous cleavage, is a part of Geese's entourage, and throws a rose in the air with the promise of spending a whole night with the man who catches it — but any word similar to this trope, "The Mistress" or "High-Class Call Girl" is never directly uttered.
  • Innocent Flower Girl: Cruelly subverted, as Geese forces little!Lily to pose as one so she can distract Jeff and he can kill him.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: In one of her and Terry's spirit talks, she explicitly tells him to stop grieving for her.
  • Kill the Cutie
  • Pimped-Out Dress: Both of the dresses she wears in the anime.
  • She Is All Grown Up: In her first scene she's an adorable little girl. Flash-forward to ten years later, and she returns as a total babe.
  • Spirit Advisor: Assumes this role for Terry after her death.
  • Silk Hiding Steel: She's soft-spoken and emotionally broken, but she won't let her few loved ones get hurt.
  • Stuffed into the Fridge: Poor, poor Lily.
  • The Tragic Rose: Her life is an almost unending parade of tragedies, and as said above in her first scene tosses a rose up in the air while promising to spend a whole night with the man who catches it. The guy who does is obviously Terry. They never get to spend their night together, as right after her High-Heel–Face Turn, she's killed by her boss Geese.
  • Woman in White: Was wearing a white dress in her first apparition as an adult.

Voiced by: note 

In the second special, this pre-teen boy from South Town is introduced as a huge Terry fanboy. However, he catches his idol in a particularly low moment...

  • Cute Bruiser: Terribly subverted when he goes against Axel Hawk's assistant (who is reluctant to fight a kid, but only concedes because 1. Tony is eager to fight them so they won't trouble Terry, and 2. Axel wants them to fight to draw Terry's attention).
  • Fiery Redhead
  • Hero-Worshipper: Idolizes Terry, which leads to a subversion when Terry goes through his drunken Heroic B.S.O.D..

Tony's mother, who has been rasing him on her own.

    Sulia Gaudeamus

A girl who appears in The Movie. A young girl from a rich family with a huge secret, she escapes from her older brother Laocorn's grip and seeks for Terry and his friends's help, becoming the key to unlock a massive conspiration...
