The characters of ''VideoGame/FatalFury'' are listed here.

Characters are listed by game of introduction.

!''Fatal Fury: King of Fighters''

[[folder:Terry Bogard - ''USA'']]
->'''Voiced by:''' [[note]]Kazukiyo Nishikiori (for the animated features), Creator/TsutomuKashiwakura (young Terry, first anime special), Satoshi Hashimoto (''Fatal Fury 3'' onwards, ''The King of Fighters '95'' onwards)[[/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 ([[spoiler: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.


* AnimalMotifs: The wolf. His nickname is even "The Legendary Hungry Wolf", a play on the series' Japanese title (''Garou Densetsu'').
* BoisterousBruiser
* CallingYourAttacks: Notable in that he nearly averted this in ''Garou''. Instead of belting out [[GratuitousEnglish "POWAH WAIF!", "BURNAKKU!", and "POWAH GEESAH!"]], he said stuff like "ROCK YOU!", "BURNING!", and "GO BANG!" The only exception?: "R U OK? BASTA WOOOOOOOOF!!!!"[[note]]In the English version of ''Garou'' on Dreamcast, ''Fatal Fury: Mark of the Wolves'', his voice clips are substituted for the original "POWAH WAVE", "BURN KNCUKLE", "CRACK SHOOT", etc. This only applies to the Japanese version and later ''The King of Fighters 2003'' and ''XI''.[[/note]]
* CartwrightCurse: In the anime. Oh so very much. Fortunately, not in the games since his [[strike:girlfriend]] [[LoveInterests love interest]] there is an ActionGirl. To be fair, the second anime special did subvert this as Terry kept things to a nice platonic level with Tony's mother Elsa. If only he remembered to do that in TheMovie... This seemes to have carried over to Animation/TheKingOfFightersDestiny which essentially retells the first anime special and has it set during ''The King Of Fighters '94''.
* CatchPhrase: "OK!"
* CombatPragmatist: While he gained some training from Tung Fu Rue, the bulk of his technique was self-taught from years of wandering the streets, getting into fights, and simply figuring out what worked and what didn't.
* CycleOfRevenge: An ironically tragic one: Geese's death orphaned Rock in the same way that Jeff's death orphaned Terry and Andy. The sliver of hope here is that while Rock is initially angered (and reasonably so) over his sudden status as an orphan, Terry adopts the boy and they strive to move past the bloody Bogard/Howard past together.
** It also helped that Geese [[ParentalNeglect wasn't exactly a good father to Rock.]] Said initial anger might have been because [[OedipusComplex Rock wanted to deal with his father himself.]]
* DoItYourselfThemeTune: Kazukiyo Nishikiori sings "Yoake no Legend" ("Legend of Dawn"), the ending theme of TheMovie.
* DisappearedDad: Jeff.
* {{Eagleland}}: He tends to be a bit of a mix. On the one hand, he's boisterous, proud, and wears stereotypical American clothes. On the other hand, he's largely self-sufficient, at least partially self-taught, and is not only a good guy, but is considered one of the most important characters in the games.
* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: In ''Mark of the Wolves'', he changes his clothes ''and'' cut his long hair.
* FingerlessGloves
* GratuitousEnglish: Used liberally in each of his appearances, from [[CallingYourAttacks shouting his attack names]], to his victory cry of, "OKAY!!".
* GroundPunch: Started with the Power Wave and was eventually supplemented by the Round Wave, which is stationary, and it's DM/HDM variants the Power Geyser and Triple/Overshoot Geyser.
* HeartbrokenBadass: The anime version of him. See CartwrightCurse above.
** [[HerHeartWillGoOn His Heart Will Go On]]: ''Twice'', in fact. [[IronWoobie Poor guy]]. Just be thankful that Blue Mary wasn't introduced, or she too may have been subjugated to this.
* HeroicBSOD: Suffers from one due to [[spoiler:the [[HeroicSacrifice death]] of Sulia in TheMovie.]] He recovers quickly, just in time to [[spoiler:''[[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu curbstomp]]'' '''''[[PhysicalGod Mars, the God of War]]''''']].
* HeroicRROD: Much like [[VideoGame/ArtOfFighting Robert did for Ryo]], in ''Garou'', Terry beats sub-boss Grant, but is too beat from the battle to press on, leaving the other protagonist (Rock) to fight the FinalBoss Kain himself.
* TheHero: Terry is credited for having repeatedly saved South Town by defeating Geese, Krauser, the Jin Twins, and Kain respectively.
* {{Hunk}}
* IDontKnowMortalKombat: [[ There's one official art]] that portrays him having a hard time [[ShoutOut playing]] ''VideoGame/ArtOfFighting'' at an arcade (though, strange enough, [[PacManFever he complains at the demonstration screen]]). TheMovie has a very similar scene where he plays a fighting game in [[ShoutOut Neo-Geo Land]], and loses, something that a little kid [[LampshadeHanging points out]].
** For bonus points, ''AOF''[='s=] John Crawley is playing ''Fatal Fury 2'' next to Terry in said artwork.
* IKnowMaddenKombat: The Power Dunk is a modified slam dunk.
* KiAttacks: Nearly all of his attacks weaponize Ki, including both his signature specials: the Power Wave and his Burn Knuckle.
* LivingLegend:
** Terry established himself as a force to reckon with when he defeated Geese Howard, and has gone on to face far stronger opponents since then. Which has earned him such distinctions as: [[RedBaron "The Legendary Lone Wolf"]] and [[BloodKnight "Hungry Wolf Bogard".]]
** His reputation continues to flourish in the ''King of Fighters'' series, where he's become a rival of Kyo Kusanagi. When Kyo was abducted by Krizlid during the '99 tournament, Terry was listed among those who helped rescue him.
* {{Mascot}}: Along with Kyo, this guy is the face of {{Creator/SNK}}.
* NiceHat: That falls off when defeated. He [[FlungClothing flings it off]] when he wins.
** TragicKeepsake - According to the intro of ''Wild Ambition'' as well as the first [[AnimeOfTheGame anime specials]], the hat [[ItWasAGift was a gift]] from his [[DisappearedDad deceased adoptive father Jeff]] [[YouKilledMyFather after he was killed by Geese]]. Terry later presents it to Rock, and the kid has cherished it ever since.
* PapaWolf: What gets him outta his drunken funk in the second OVA is seeing Tony get pummeled by Axel Hawk.
* ParentalSubstitute: He becomes one for Rock, after taking him under his wing.
* PowerFist: Terry's "Burn Knuckle" is a Ki-enhanced punch that rockets him across screen. It's been a mainstay in his arsenal since his debut in the original ''Fatal Fury'' and the ''King of Fighters''.
* SaveTheVillain: Attempts [[TakeMyHand this]] on Geese. It fails, as Geese refuses Terry's help [[GoOutWithASmile and plummets to his death with a mocking grin.]]
* SecondLove: Implied to be the case between him and Mary Ryan, who (in Fatal Fury's canon) has only recently gotten over her previous boyfriend's death.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The manly man to Andy's sensitive guy.
* ShesGotLegs: When transformed into a [[ woman]] in Dmitri's ''Midnight Bliss'' super.
* ShipTease: With Mary. Unfortunately, by the time of ''Mark of the Wolves'' it seems that they're still JustFriends.
* SpiritedCompetitor: One of his defining traits, which he shares in common with Kim Kaphwan and [[VideoGame/ArtOfFighting Ryo Sakazaki.]]
* TaughtByExperience: Though Terry received tutelage under [[BadassGrandpa Tung Fu Ru]], the bulk of his knowledge comes from years of hands-on experience spent surviving the crime infested streets of [[ViceCity South Town.]]
* TearsOfBlood: In the movie, [[spoiler:after Sulia's HeroicSacrifice]]. Even better, they appear to be mixed with bluish ki. He quickly gets over his HeroicBSOD (to the point that he's shown to be visibly angry and ''[[OhCrap bearing fangs]]''). [[LetsGetDangerous Oh, you've done it now...]]
* TechnicianVersusPerformer: Terry is the "performer", relying less on framed technique and more on applied experience. Interestingly, his ability as a fighter is actually more advanced than Andy's "technician" style.
* YouKilledMyFather: Towards Geese with regards to his foster father.

[[folder:Andy Bogard - ''USA'']]

->'''Voiced by:''' [[note]]Jun Hashimoto, Creator/KeiichiNanba (post-''Special'')[[/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.


* AdaptationDyeJob - The first anime special gives him blue hair instead of blond.
* AlwaysSecondBest: To his older brother, Terry. Andy has lost every time they've competed, despite having studied Koppo Ken and Shiranui ninjitsu. By ''Mark of the Wolves'', he's finally [[CantCatchUp made peace]] with the fact that Terry's skills exceed his own.
* BestFriend: Of Joe Higashi. Moreso in the anime adaptations, where they're stated to be sparring partners.
* {{Bishonen}} - Especially in the anime.
* CelibateHero - He ''knows'' Mai is crazy for him, but his overall behavior is more of a BigBrotherInstinct.
** Andy pretty much sees this as a LikeBrotherAndSister moment; having lived most of his life with Mai, he has a hard time adequately returning her affections. The status quo is kept in the second anime special (minus an [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome epic]] [[CurbStompBattle asskicking]] of Laurence for harming her), but this is finally averted in TheMovie, where they actually share a kiss after Andy trounces [[StalkerWithACrush Hauer]] and Mai finishes [[LoveMartyr Panni]].
* GameplayAndStorySegregation - He suffers an injury in ''3'' that continues to plague him throughout the ''Real Bout'' series, but it doesn't seem to hamper him in actual fights.
* HardWorkHardlyWorks: Despite training extensively in two martial arts forms, Terry still surpasses him through natural talent, resulting from years of [[TaughtByExperience surviving on the streets of South Town.]]
* KiAttacks
* McNinja - A [[HighlyVisibleNinja highly visible one]] at that. Sure, white ''does'' work as camouflage especially in snow, [[FridgeLogic but what need is there for stealth]] in a FightingGame?
* TheRival - To Terry. He's not the ''only'' one, but Terry recognizes Andy as his most legitimate and fiercest rival.
** In Hokutomaru's ending from ''Garou'', Andy praises his disciple for his growth as a fighter, but then states that their relationship is no longer that of master and student, but that of two rivals.
* ShipTease: With Mai in the anime. The games make it more one-sided.
* ShotoClone: His moveset is the closest to a traditional Shoto's.
** KamehameHadoken: Hisho Ken is his standard projectile, which travels full screen. Whereas the HDM version requires him use it in close quarters.
** HurricaneKick: Reppa Dan is an arcing kick that can be used to travel across screen and doubles as his secondary anti-air attack. Cho Reppa Dan is the flaming HDM variant.
** {{Shoryuken}}: Similarly named, "Shoryudan," though it looks more like Kyo's 118 Shiki Orochi, minus the flames.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The sensitive guy to Terry's manly man.
* WillTheyOrWontThey - His ''Real Bout 2'' ending pokes fun at this.

[[folder:Joe Higashi - ''Japan'']]
->'''Voiced by:''' [[note]]Katsuhisa Namase, Creator/NobuyukiHiyama (since ''Fatal Fury 3'')[[/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, [[DemotedToExtra well]]...


* AdaptationalJerkass: He's antagonistic towards King in the KOF series, often by flaunting his Bantam Weight championship belt in front her; knowing she isn't allowed to compete for it[[note]]according to Art of Fighting's canon, King once fought for championship, but was disqualified during the title bout when the officials realized she was a woman. The incident became [[NeverLiveItDown a permanent disgrace]] for her[[/note]] because of her gender. And adds insult to injury in KOF XIII by calling her Nak Muay style [[PretenderDiss "fake".]]
* AnimeHair: Joe's hair is basically a bunch of spikes, which have steadily grown taller with each new game.
* [[ArrogantKungFuGuy Arrogant Muay Thai Guy]]
* TheBigGuy: To the Bogard brothers, of course. As you can see, his might can't go wrong hoisting an alligator over his head.
** In ''2'' and ''Special'', he can do a [[WrestlerInAllOfUs frankensteiner]].
* BlowYouAway: "Hurricane Upper" is one of his signature specials, resulting in a mini-tornado that travels across screen. In later games, it's supplemented by his "Double Hurricane," while the "Exploding Hurricane" is a finisher that has to be manually linked from the final hit of his Tiger Talon HDM.
* BoisterousBruiser: While the Bogard brothers are typically reserved, Joe is the good-natured braggart of their group.
* ButtMonkey: {{Zigzagged}}.
** Joe wasn't always loveless, until the anime adaptations characterized him as being unlucky when it came to women. In the game series itself, however, Joe briefly dated Billy Kane's kid sister, Lily (during the Real Bout saga). But in the ''King of Fighters'' series, Billy has [[MySisterIsOffLimits prevented Joe from seeing her.]]
--> '''Joe:''' Aren't you Lily's big brother?
--> '''Billy:''' [[DisproportionateRetribution I'm gonna kill you.]]
** The trend continues in some of their team endings, such as KOF XIII where Mary and Mai show up to congratulate Terry and Andy on their victory. But Joe gets hugged by [[CampGay the loony fan]] he rescued in the previous game.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In the first two games, Joe was relatively [[NiceGuy laid-back and reserved.]] It wasn't until the [[TheAnimeOfTheGame anime specials]] (complete with Creator/NobuyukiHiyama's [[PigeonholedVoiceActor trademark]] [[HotBlooded fiery passion]]) that Joe evolved into the guy we know today. This characterization has stuck ever since ''3''.
* DemotedToExtra: Joe used to be a constant companion of the Bogard brothers, but his role and presence in their group has steadily diminished ever since they joined the KOF roster. In later installments, his spot is usually filled by either Blue Mary or Tizoc, and he [[PutOnABus doesn't even get a mention]] in ''Mark of the Wolves''.
* HotBlooded:
* IShallTauntYou: Big time, usually by {{mooning}} his opponent, or poking out his tonuge at them. In King's case, he does it by flaunting his championship belt at her at the start of the match.
* MartialArtsHeadband - [[WearingAFlagOnYourHead With the Japanese flag on it]].
* OutOfFocus: He's absent during ''Mark of the Wolves'' and for several installments of the ''King of Fighters'', where his spot is usually filled by Mary Ryan, or Tizoc.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: While an impressive fighter in his own right, his skills (and Andy's) pale in comparison to those such as Terry and Rock Howard.
* PlayingWithFire: Joe's signature finish is his "Screw Upper": a standing uppercut that results in a massive flame tornado, but it's stationary unlike his standard hurricane. In later games, he tops it with his Twin Tornado HDM, which spawns two of them at once; one on each side!
* RapidFireFisticuffs: Which perfectly describes Joe's TNT punch, though it lacks the vacuum effect of Ryo Sakazaki's "Zanretsuken".
%%* WalkingShirtlessScene

[[folder:Duck King - ''USA'']]
->'''Voiced by:''' [[note]]Creator/YujiMitsuya (Japanese), Creator/MattHill (English)[[/note]]

->A street breakdancer who appears in the first game as one of the competitors. In the second game, he opens a nightclub (alongside [[VideoGame/ArtOfFighting King]]), but still fights every now and then. Notable for [[HeadPet keeping a duckling in his mohawk]].


* AnimeHair: He's easily recognized by his [[MulticoloredHair blonde and blue]] striped mohawk.
* ButNotTooBlack: Though it didn't become apparent till ''Real Bout''.
* CoolPet: His pet, P-Chan, the adorable chick that copies Duck's every move. (Not to be confused with ''[[Manga/RanmaOneHalf the other]]'' P-Chan).
* CoolShades: Duck is never seen without his trademark blue rayban sunglasses.
* DanceBattler: His fighting style is based entirely on breakdancing, from his idle animations (which usually has him either juking in place, or pop-locking), to his more devasting attacks such as his "Space Cowboy" HDM, where he generates a miniature storm by windmill kicking his opponent.
* FingerlessGloves:
* FunPersonified: Duck isn't in it for the money, the KOF Tournament simply gives him a venue to show off his dance moves and promote his club.
* GoKartingWithBowser: In the anime adaptations, he's friends with the Bogard brothers and Joe, but he's also shown to be on good terms with Billy Kane. The third film even has a scene where he invites Billy to hang around his new nightclub. Billy accepts the invite and congratulates Duck on the opening.
-->'''Duck King''': "Hey, Billy. Long time, no see."
-->'''Billy''': ''(making peace sign)'' "Nice place you got here, Ducky."
-->'''Duck King''': "Thanks, man. It's my grand opening. Why not hang around and check it out?"
-->'''Billy''': "Right. I think I will."
* HeadPet: His [[TeamPet pet ducklings]] ride on his hair.
* PerpetualSmiler: The only time you'll see a frown on his face is when he loses. Though, in later games, he simply shrugs it off.
* RaceLift: He was [[ clearly white]] in the first game.

[[folder: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).


* TheCameo: Showed up as an unplayable opponent[[note]]Usable in the home ports but only by Player 2[[/note]] in the first game, relegated to dozens of cameo appearances before appearing, fully playable for the first time ever, in ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters: [[AlternateContinuity Maximum Impact 2]]''.
* ChefOfIron: He owns a cafe, and is often seen tending at a bar.
* DanceBattler: {{Subverted}}. While he's the earliest known Capoeira practitioner in fighting games, the limits in technology at the time made his character movements stiff and awkward looking. By the third game, technology had improved enough to allow Bob to more accurately portray the fluidity associated with the style.
* DemotedToExtra: Keeps making cameos but never returns to the arena (except once, see above). At least once it's said that he realized he was outclassed in combat and decided to focus on his restaurant.
%%* {{Hunk}}: Quite handsome.
* {{Mentor}}: He's the instructor for Bob Wilson.
* RetiredBadass: From ''Fatal Fury 3'' onwards, which introduced his student, Bob Wilson. Which leaves Meyer free to manage the Pao Pao Cafe full-time.
* SharpDressedMan: Only seen during Bob's endings in ''Fatal Fury 3'' and ''Real Bout'', where Richard now dresses as a bartender.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: He doesn't wear one as long as he's in the ring.
* TheWorfEffect: The first anime film briefly plays up his credentials during his bout with Terry, who basically shrugs off all of his attacks. One Rising Tackle (and as many seconds) later, Richard was KO'd.

[[folder:Michael Max - ''USA'']]

->An African-American boxer who seeks to test his skills out against many opponents. He competed in the first game, but after losing from within the competition, had decided to retire from mainstream fighting, though he does help train Axel Hawk from time to time.


* AlliterativeName
* AlternateCompanyEquivalent: He was clearly meant to be SNK's equivalent of ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Street Fighter II's]]'' Balrog, given he was also modelled after Creator/MikeTyson.
* BlowYouAway: He also has the Hurricane Upper, though Max's version of it is faster and stronger than Joe's.
* ExtremityExtremist: Like Balrog, all of his moves result in punches, even if a kick button is used.
* {{Mentor|s}}: To Axel.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: He was clearly modelled after Creator/MikeTyson, the same as with [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Balrog]].
* PutOnABus: From ''Fatal Fury 2'' onward, he was replaced by Axel.
* ReligiousBruiser: Shown when he does the Sign of the Cross after winning a round.
* TwoFirstNames

[[folder:Tung Fu Rue - ''China'']]

->The Chinese master of Hakkyokuseiken and mentor to both Terry and Andy. He, along with the trio of Terry, Andy, and Joe had participated in Geese's King of Fighters tournament but doesn't win. Later on, he accepts the Jin brothers (Chonshu and Chonrei) as his new understudies.


* BadassGrandpa: Not only is Tung a prolific martial artist in his old age, he was the one who taught to Jeff Bogard and both briefly mentored both of Jeff's sons.
* BaldOfAwesome
* DeathByAdaptation - Died in the first anime special, but is still alive in the games as of ''Real Bout 2''.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning - Senpu Ken and Senpu Gou Ken is him spinning himself around like a dervish. Terry's Rising Tackle is based on these moves.
* OldMaster
* ShoutOut - Has lots of things in common with Kame Sennin/Master Roshi from ''Manga/DragonBall'', but his personality is different (especially in that he's not a pervert).
* SuperMode - In the first game only, right after losing 1/3 of his life and until losing another third, he would morph into a hulking giant much stronger than his regular self. [[TemporaryBulkChange In later games, his ability to become gigantic like this is used more freely.]]

[[folder:Hwa Jai - ''Thailand'']]

->An arrogant Muay Thai fighter and early rival of Joe, he becomes a more formidable fighter after getting a little tipsy. Eventually smooths out his rivalry with Joe and the two are now good friends.


* AlternateCompanyEquivalent: He became one to ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha Street Fighter: Alpha's]]'' Adon, when Creator/{{Capcom}} retroactively adapted Hwa's unhinged antagonism towards Joe by having Adon be insane and hostile toward Sagat. Adon also developed a similar laugh and his moves became jaguar themed like Hwa's.
* [[ArrogantKungFuGuy Arrogant Muay Thai Guy]]
* DefeatMeansFriendship: After years of antagonism, he finally buried the hatchet with Joe. However, he hasn't given up on trying to defeat him. The difference being that now he's motivated by sportsmanship.
* DemotedToExtra: Makes cameos around Joe, but never gets to fight again [[spoiler:until his [[AscendedExtra ascension]] to ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters XIII'']].
* DivergentCharacterEvolution: He was initially a pallet swap of Joe (except bald), but was eventually given his own character sprite and separate moves to further distinguish him from Joe.
* DrunkenMaster
* EvilCounterpart: To Joe, in the earlier parts of the series. In the original game, they share nearly the exact same moveset with two exceptions: Hwa doesn't have a projectile, but he has a drunken mode is unique to him.
* TheRival: To Joe Higashi, ever since Joe defeated him for the Bantam Weight championship title. The third anime film finally gives him his long-awaited rematch. But after taking punishing blows form Hwa for over a minute, Joe drops him in the opening round with a single well placed Tiger Kick.
* SuperMode: Activated by drinking from his gourd. In the original game, it would trigger automatically once his health meter dipped below half. Later installments require the player to trigger it themselves, though it requires sufficient super meter to use. Hwa gains huge buffs to his speed and attack power, but he's [[PowerAtAPrice unable to block]] until the effect wears off.
* WakeUpCallBoss
* WalkingShirtlessScene

[[folder:Raiden/Big Bear - ''Australia'']]

->A pro wrestler that has two personas, representing good and bad. When being villainous, he takes on the name "Raiden" and wears a mask. When portraying a more righteous character, he does not wear the mask and goes by the name "Big Bear". Works under Geese during the original ''Fatal Fury'' but breaks away once Geese is defeated by Terry.


* AlternateCompanyEquivalent: He's [=SNK's=] equivalent of [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Zangief]], from his beard, to his massive girth and career as a pro-wrestler. It's proabale that Big Bear's name itself may be an allusion to the fact that Zangief is said to have perfected his Spinning Piledriver by practicing it on Grizzly bears.
* AscendedExtra: After [[UnexpectedCharacter an unexpected appearance]] in both ''[[VideoGame/CapcomVsSNKMillenniumFight2000 Capcom vs. SNK]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/CapcomVsSNK2MarkOfTheMillennium Capcom vs. SNK 2]]'', Raiden crossed over to ''KOF'' in ''The King of Fighters XII'' ([[WhatCouldHaveBeen originally]], he was to appear in ''[='94=]'', but the original idea for the England Team was axed; in ''2003'', the dev team thought Tizoc would be a better and [[EnsembleDarkhorse more popular]] choice).
* BoisterousBruiser
* BreathWeapon[=/=]FireBreathingDiner - His original desperation move was a fire breath attack.
* CompositeCharacter - In ''Wild Ambition'', Raiden sports his trademark mask, but also is decked out in the beard of his {{Face}} persona, Big Bear. This would carry over into the ''[=CvS=]'' games.
* CoolMask
* FaceHeelTurn: [[AllThereInTheManual According to his backstory]], he became Raiden after his tag-team partner betrayed him in the ring. He then went to work for Geese as an enforcer. After being bested by Terry & co., Raiden had a change of heart and reverted to his honorable, kindly Big Bear persona.
* FaceHeelRevolvingDoor - Although as of late, this is just his wrestling gimmick. In real life, he'd be a {{Face}}.
* FatBastard - Mainly as Raiden.
* FingerlessGloves
* LandDownunder: His character bio says he's from Australia, but missing the accent.
* MightyGlacier
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Of Wrestling/BigVanVader, who was massively popular in Japan.
* TheRival: To Joe Higashi in the first two anime films. He was Joe's designated opponent during the first film's climax, and challenged him to a rematch in a prize fight in the second one. Raiden lost both times.
* StoutStrength
* SurprisinglyGoodEnglish - Had an actual English VA.

[[folder:Billy Kane - ''England'']]
->'''Voiced by:''' [[note]]Creator/DaikiNakamura (for the first anime special, Japanese), Creator/PaulDobson (for the animated adaptations) (English)[[/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. [[BigBrotherInstinct Only his sister]] [[MoralityPet is closer to him]].


* BigBrotherInstinct - To his sister Lilly. Needless to say, he ''[[MySisterIsOffLimits does not]]'' approve of Joe and Lilly dating.
* TheDragon: Serves as Geese's right-hand and personal bodyguard, including at the KOF Tournament. Anyone who wants a shot at Geese's title has to go through Billy first.
** DragonTheirFeet - Implied in the cellphone novel ''Stray Dog, Stray Wolf''.
* GratuitousEnglish[=/=]SurprisinglyGoodEnglish - Depends.
* HeelFaceTurn - EX Billy does this in ''Real Bout Special'' realizing that without anyone to care for him, he should start clean and change his ways. [[RealMenWearPink He even tints his bandana and cane pink]]. Sadly, many are freaked out by the redeemed and gentle Billy. Mai shoots down the guy's advances without hesitation, [[SingleTargetSexuality although Billy should have been expecting that...]]
%%* MoralityPet - Lilly, too.
* MySisterIsOffLimits: In the ''King of Fighters'' series, Billy is the reason Joe's relationship with Lily has seemingly ground to a halt. It's mainly due to Joe helping the Bogards to oppose his boss, but also because Billy thinks Joe is [[TheCasanova a playboy.]]
* NoSmoking: His one pet peeve. He wears the sign on the back of his jacket and [[BerserkButton will knock the block off of anyone who blows smoke in his face]]. The only exception to this rule would seem to be Geese.
* [[NiceHat Nice Bandanna]]
* PlayingWithFire: All of his DM and HDM techs ignite his staff to deal insane amounts of damage. In certain installments, several of his standard specials also set his opponent ablaze when they connect.
** RingOfFire: His "Salamander" HDM has him rapidly spin his staff to generate a flame ring before he flings it across screen. If done while his opponent is trapped in a corner, the spinning portion juggles them for additional damage.
* PunnyName: Subverted. His last name isn't pronounced "cane" (like the weapon he uses), but "kon" or "kaan".
* TheRival: Who it applies to varies between the games themselves and the anime adaptations.
** In the game series, his beef is with Terry because he defeated Billy during the semi-finals of the original game. Doubly so, since Terry went on to defeat Geese and was responsible for his death[[note]]in the original ''Fatal Fury'', Terry does it to avenge his adopted father's death. It was retconned by ''Real Bout: Fatal Fury'', which is a retelling of the original game's events. This time, Terry tried to save Geese at the end of their match, but he refused to take Terry's hand and chose to fall to his death out of spite[[/note]].
** The anime changed it by having Andy be the one to defeat Billy. Despite this, their resulting rivalry is {{downplayed}} since Billy never gets his chance to settle the score with him. Instead, Andy is challenged by Laurence Blood and Hauer in the second and third films respectively.
* ShirtlessScene - Somewhat. He wears a jacket, but no shirt underneath.
* ShoutOut - His original appearance was similar to former British pro wrestler Dynamite Kid. His redesign in the ''Real Bout'' series has Billy looking like [[Music/GunsNRoses Axl Rose]] (only without long hair).
* SimpleStaff
* WearingAFlagOnYourHead - Aside from his bandanna, he wore a Union Jack shirt in ''2''/''Special''.
* TheWorfEffect - He gets his ass kicked a ''lot'' by up-and-coming villains.

[[folder:Geese Howard - ''USA'']]
->'''Voiced by:''': [[note]]Creator/HidekatsuShibata (in the anime special and TheMovie), Kong Kuwata (from ''3'' onward)[[/note]]

->The BigBad. Formerly the Chief of Police for Southtown (as seen in ''VideoGame/ArtOfFighting 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.


* ArchEnemy: To Terry Bogard for the murder of his adopted father, Jeff Bogard. Whereas Geese has been out for revenge against Terry ever since his defeat.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: He's the head of the Howard Connection for a reason: because he has extensive underworld connections and influence among South Town's top politicians and law enforcement. ''And'' he's capable of channel vast amounts of Ki to supplement his mastery of both Hyakyoku Seiken and Kubojutsu.
* [[WrestlerInAllOfUs Aiki-jujutsuka In All Of Us]] - Geese is a master of Aiki-jujutsu and other traditional forms of barehanded Japanese martial arts, wich shows in the large arsenal of throws he possesses. However, gameplay-wise, he is not a grappler since his playstyle is centered around mix-ups, not landing a high-damage throw.
%%* BadassBaritone
* BadassBoast: "The immortal Geese is about to show you to a very hot place, indeed."
* BadassInANiceSuit: First seen during his cameo appearance in ''Art of Fighting 2'' and, later, in the opening animation for ''Fatal Fury 3'' which shows him in a different suit (a brown one with a red necktie).
* BattleAura: As Nightmare Geese.
* CigarChomper
* CoatCape - Few video game characters can rock the CoatCape quite as well as Geese. He combines this with BadassArmfold before flinging it off in nearly all of his intros. In the ''Capcom vs. SNK'' games, Geese is actually wearing his Gi (martial arts) jacket properly, so he wears his suit jacket as a cape instead.
* CounterAttack: He can intercept attacks then slam you down, with a good dose of Engrish to go with it.
* DifficultButAwesome - His Raging Storm command has an unusual series of inputs consisting of going from down-back then to a half-circle back (so from forward to back) and then finishing with a down-forward. The FanNickname for this is the "Pretzel" because the easiest way to do it is to go from down-back then to up-forward before going to the half-circle back motion and then going one direction past (up-back) before finishing at down-forward, which forms a pretzel-pattern. However it's a good all-purpose reversal and anti-air move so mastery of the motion is necessary for a good Geese player.
* DisneyVillainDeath - The first time he's knocked off of Geese Tower by Terry, he gets better. The second? Er, [[KilledOffForReal not so much]].
* TheDreaded: For most of South Town, Geese is essentially the Big Bad Wolf. He can ruin lives through his various criminal connections, or take lives by ordering the hit. Worse, he might decide do it himself and he's likely to get away with it, since the most of the city's police force are in his pocket.
* EmbarrassingFirstName: And he'll ''still'' kick your ass.
* EvilLaugh: And he goes [[LaughingMad plum crazy]] when you beat him as Nightmare Geese in ''Real Bout Special''.
* ExecutiveSuiteFight: Most of his matches take place in his office.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Has a nasty scar on his back from the survival of his first fall. He also has a gaping wound across his chest, though the cause of it is uncertain. Initially, it was implied to have been inflicted by Krauser, when they were teenagers[[note]]Geese tried attack the Krauser's father for allegedly abandoning his mother, but Krauser blocked the attack then struck Geese in retaliation[[/note]]. But during ''The Motion Picture'', Geese attributes the wound to his fight with Terry and implies that it was his Burn Knuckle that left the wound in his chest.
* GoOutWithASmile: Maniacal grin, actually: Geese sees his death as the last slap in Terry's face, and he lets it show as he falls.
* GratuitousEnglish: Just as bad as his rival (most famous for "[[ PREDICTABO!]]").
%%* {{Hunk}}: Of the rare villainous variety.
* {{Immortality}} - Speculation rages over whether Geese received immortality from the Jin scrolls.
* KiAttacks
* KilledOffForReal: At the end of ''Real Bout Fatal Fury''. Geese still shows up in the following sequels, ''Real Bout Special'' and ''Real Bout 2: The Newcomers'', but both of those titles are considered to being [[DreamMatchGame Dream Match Games]] which has no effect on the current ''Fatal Fury'' storyline.
* KnowWhenToFoldEm[=/=]ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Invoked at the conclusion of his match against Ryo Sakazaki, in ''[[VideoGame/ArtOfFighting Art of Fighting 2]]''. Geese was losing and fled before Ryo could claim his revenge,[[note]]for ordering his sister, Yuri's abduction to blackmail his father, Takuma into working for him[[/note]] by finishing him off with his Haoh Shoko Ken.
* {{Leitmotif}}[=/=]BootstrappedTheme: Geese Howard's theme, from game to game. So far he's had [[BreadEggsMilkSquick a kiss, soy sauce, a stiff neck, a nightmare]], [[PlayedForLaughs and now mustard]].
* LonghairedPrettyBoy: In his younger years as South Town's police commisioner ([=AOF2=]), which caused some gamers to mistake him for Andy Bogard.
* TheManBehindTheMan: Geese's connection to Mr. Big was first mentioned in the Takara version of ''Art of Fighting'' for the SNES, and revealed he was actually the one responsible for ordering Yuri Sakazaki's abduction. This wasn't shown in the arcade version, which ended on a cliff-hanger. But [[ the intro of AOF2]] made it official by canonizing the Takara ending almost verbatim.
* ManOfWealthAndTaste: Geese portrays the image of a corrupt politician: from neatly pressed corporate attire, lavish penthouse suites, to regularly being chauffeured around in black limousines.
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Kong Kuwata, Geese's game Seiyuu, is a Gospel singer. This is made even more notable as Kuwata sings a special track on the ''Real Bout Garou Densetsu'' arranged OST titled ''Romei'', which can be viewed and heard [[ here]].
* NormallyIWouldBeDeadNow: Survived ''two'' falls from his tower before the third one that stuck. Or did it?
* OccidentalOtaku - It's heavily implied in almost all his stages and the way he dresses (with the only exception of ''Art of Fighting 2'' when he fights in a executive dress, and in his office) that Geese seems to love Japanese culture maybe ''too much''. In fact, in ''[=AOF2=]'', he escapes to Japan after he's defeated.
* ParentalAbandonment - Rock ''loathes'' the man not only for abandoning him and his wife Marie, but for turning down his pleas to save his mom ''[[TearJerker the very night that she died]]''. Ironically, Geese hates ''his'' father for [[spoiler:leaving him and his mother Maria to fend for themselves in Southtown while he went on to become the head of the Strolheim family. Geese even tried to kill his dad, but half-bro Krauser stopped him.]]
* SayMyName - Gets this a lot from the [[YouKilledMyFather Bogard Bros.]] Luckily, [[ParentalAbandonment Rock]] and [[spoiler: Kain]] don't get a chance to join in.
* SchrodingersCast - He's dead here, alive in ''The King of Fighters'', and dead ''again'' in ''KOF: [[AlternateContinuity Maximum Impact]]''.
* ShirtlessScene: From ''Special'' onwards, Geese never wore the top of his dogi, arguably thrusting him into the land of WalkingShirtlessScene.
* ShockAndAwe - His Raimei Gouha Nage special throw and his Thunder Break super.
* SNKBoss - TropeNamer and one of the two main {{Trope Codifier}}s.
* TheSyndicate - Howard Connection is this, although Geese [[VillainWithGoodPublicity fools the people]] by using his seemingly benevolent actions and the police force as a front.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood - Rare steak.
* YourMindMakesItReal - The fight against Nightmare Geese is heavily implied to be one big nightmare. That doesn't stop him from being a nightmare of the ''[[SNKBoss other]]'' variety, though.
* [[WearingAFlagOnYourHead Wearing a Flag on Your Back]] - For his first appearance only, the American flag was plastered onto the back of Geese's dogi.

!''Fatal Fury 2'' and ''Fatal Fury Special''

[[folder:Mai Shiranui - ''Japan'']]
->'''Voiced by:''' [[note]]Creator/KotonoMitsuishi (in the anime specials) (Japanese), Creator/LisaAnnBeley (for TheMovie, [[TheOtherDarrin taking over from]] Sarah Sawatsky in the second anime special) (English)[[/note]]

->A beautiful kunoichi from Japan. Her grandfather trained Andy and she herself has a bit of a crush on the man herself. Best known for her outfit (or [[{{Stripperific}} lack thereof]]). Her main modes of attack are the folding fans she carries.


* ActionGirl <- -> FauxActionGirl - ''Really'' depends on which media we're talking about. She's more competent in the games, whereas in the anime she suffers a ''bad'' case of {{Chickification}} ([[spoiler:except for her fight with Panni, where Mai ''[[CurbStompBattle brutally]]'' [[CurbStompBattle curbstomps]] and kills her with a single but very well-timed and placed Chou Hisatsu Shinobibachi. About time, dammit]]).
** [[spoiler: Though it's implied that the anime's supposed chickification is more about Mai going the DeliberatelyDistressedDamsel way just to get Andy's attention.]]
* AdaptationDyeJob: Has brown or black hair in the games; red in the anime.
** Her hair in her ''Real Bout Special'' ending is purple.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: While Andy does kiss her in the movie, no in-game event yet shows him unambiguously returnng her feelings in the same degree as hers.
** They finally did become a couple in ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' series.
* AssKicksYou: Her Wild Cherry attack.
* ClothingDamage: A bit in the second anime special, much more in TheMovie.
* CombatHandFan: She is known of using folding paper fans in combat.
* CoolBigSis: To Hokutomaru, apparently (he refers to her as "Mai-neechan" aka "sister Mai"). She also plays this role to Sulia in TheMovie.
* FieryRedhead: Her personality fits perfectly, but she only has [[AdaptationDyeJob red hair in the anime]].
* {{Flanderization}}: She wasn't as obsessed with Andy in the early games as she was in later installments. WordOfGod even [[LampshadeHanging jokes about this]], as they say that as of ''Garou'' she's probably still looking for Andy.
* {{Fartillery}}: In ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive 5 Last Round'', her Gekka-Midare-Botan becomes this. Keep in mind, it's still a fiery explosion.
* JigglePhysics: She was probably the first video game character to ever do it.
* {{Hammerspace}}: Where she keeps all of her fans.
** Seems to overlap with VictoriasSecretCompartment.
* HartmanHips: The width of her hips varies according to her character sprite in each game, but her official art shows she's got 'em regardless. Most notably in ''VideoGame/NeoGeoBattleColiseum'' and the upcoming ''SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy'' (seen [[ here]] and [[ here]]).
* HelloNurse: Gets reactions from several male characters, especially in ''Fatal Fury 3''.
* HighlyVisibleNinja: It'd be near impossible for anyone to ''not'' notice her, given the ample size of her boobs along with [[{{Stripperific}} what little]] she's wearing. To quote Ryu from ''[=CvS=]: Chaos'':
-->'''Ryu''': ''(incredulously)'' "NINJA?! Lady, people can see YOU coming from a mile away!"
* HopelessSuitor: In the ''Fatal Fury'' series, Andy maintained a platonic relationship with Mai out of respect for his ninja master, because she's his granddaughter. Mai persisted, despite her frustrations, in hopes that he'd eventually come around. It finally happened in KOF XIV, by having them officially become a couple - after [[BelatedHappyEnding more than 20 years.]]
* IconicSequelCharacter: Introduced in ''Fatal Fury 2'' and probably just as important to the series as Geese or Terry.
* MasterOfDisguise: Not often dwelt upon, but it's apparently part of her kunoichi skill set, as several of her intros and win poses depict her performing {{Instant Costume Change}}s. She even playfully disguises herself as Chun-Li during their shared pre-fight intro in ''VideoGame/{{Capcom Vs SNK 2|Mark Of The Millennium}}''.
* {{Mondegreen}}: During Mai's standard winpose, she says "Nippon Ichi!" But to English fans, it sounds like she's saying "Me bouncy!" instead.
* MsFanservice:
** Initially averted by her earlier appearances, which were modest by design. Later games steadily [[FanservicePack increased her breast size]] and filled out her figure, while her outfit became progressively skimpier.
** It was her depiction in the anime adaptations that solidified it, by further increasing her breast size, their bounciness, and by making her outfit even more revealing than it already was. All of which lead to several brief [[FreezeFrameBonus nipple slips]], groping (by Jubei Yamada), and the third film gave her a ShowerScene, for good measure.
* NippleAndDimed: Averted in the anime movie. There are brief nip-slips that can be seen if [[FreezeFrameBonus one looks hard enough]].
* PlayingWithFire
* PluckyGirl: Always cheerful and stubborn in the face of danger, loneliness, etc.
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: KOF [[{{Flanderization}} flanderized]] her character to the point that she literally fights half naked. In most games, no one [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight comments on it.]] But XIII finally [[{{Subverted}} subverts it]] by having the majority of the cast point out the indecency of [[{{Stripperiffic}} what little she's wearing.]] Mai's reaction varies between trying to explain that it's the traditional garb worn by the women of [[BadassFamily the Shiranui]] [[{{Ninja}} Ninja Clan]], to being insulted.
%%* SheFu
* ShesGotLegs: They don't get as much attention compared to her chest, but she has thick thighs. It's mainly seen in her official character art and her character sprites in the ''Real Bout'' saga and ''Capcom vs SNK 2''.
* {{Sideboob}}: With breasts that size barely hidden behind strips of cloth, it's a wonder how they don't pop out entirely.
* SingleTargetSexuality: Everyone knows she only has eyes for Andy, 'cuz she won't shut up about it much to the annoyance of her friends.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: From the moment she joined the KOF roster, but the anime exaggerated it much further, and the spinoff games also ran with it.
* YamatoNadeshiko: Mai is supposed to be one (or at least believes to be), and to her credit, she tries hard. [[ One of the official arts]] has her wearing a kimono while apparently hosting a tea ceremony for Terry and Andy, and this is invoked again in ''[[ The King Of Fighters: KYO]]'' during one of Kyo and Yuki's dates.

[[folder:Kim Kaphwan - ''South Korea'']]
->'''Voiced by:''' [[note]]Creator/DaikiNakamura (in the anime specials and in TheMovie) (Japanese), Creator/DavidKaye (for the above) (English)[[/note]]

->A Korean Taekwondo expert and champion of ''justice''! He's also a pretty good father, and his sons are his foremost students.


* AnimalMotifs - ThePhoenix. In the ''Real Bout'' series, Kim can even inexplicably [[SummonMagic summon]] [[HotWings one]] at the end of his [[LimitBreak Hou'ou Kyaku]].
* BadassNormal: He has no abilities other than his insane adeptness when it comes to Taekwondo, and yet can still match people like Terry and Geese in combat.
* DetectEvil: The signature of his character, complete with a CatchPhrase.
-->"''Aku wa yurusan!''" ("Evil is [[ThisIsUnforgivable unforgivable]]!")
* ExtremityExtremist - Only has ''one'' punch.
* FingerlessGloves
* {{Flanderization}} - His love of '''JUSTICE'''!
* HairFlip - His [[ sprite]] for the ''Real Bout'' series has Kim doing this.
* HotBlooded
* {{Hunk}}
* JusticeWillPrevail - A defining part of his character, pretty [[{{Flanderization}} exaggerated]] as of late (as you can see in his entry on ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' [[Characters/TheKingOfFightersTheRugalSaga characters page]]).
* {{Kiai}} - Whenever he starts whipping out his specials, expect the sound barrier to be utterly ''[[NoIndoorVoice broken]]''.
--> '''Kim''': "[[CallingYourAttacks Hou'ou Kyaku!]] [[SpamAttack ATATATATATATATAAAAA!!]] [[FinishingMove WATAAAAAA!!!]]"
* {{Leitmotif}}: In Kim's appearances in both Fatal Fury: The New Battle and the motion picture, [[ this]] song plays.
* LoveFreak
* MartialPacifist - Although he occasionally shows flashes of being a TechnicalPacifist when confronting villains.
* ShoutOut - The aforementioned {{Kiai}}? [[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar Kenshiro]] did it first.
* TheSouthpaw - During ''Real Bout'', anyway, if his back-facing stance is any indication. Typically he fights facing the camera, though.
* TeamDad - To his ''entire'' Taekwondo school.
* ThisIsUnforgivable - [[CatchPhrase "Aku wa yurusan! HA!"]] Usually done with a dramatic finger point and DeathGlare.
* TwinkleSmile: Used as one of his victory poses along with a thumbs up.
* VocalEvolution - In his debut, Kim was given a rather youthful voice. Around ''Special'', Hashimoto switched to a much deeper tone.
* [[WearingAFlagOnYourHead Wearing A Flag On Your Back]] - The Korean flag.

[[folder:Jubei Yamada - ''Japan'']]
->'''Voiced by:''' [[note]]Creator/JojiYanami (in the anime)[[/note]]

->An ancient judo master and longtime friend of Mai's father who pervs out on Mai constantly.


* AdaptationalBadass: He isn't particularly reputable in the games themselves. But during the second anime film, he was able to go one-on-one with Andy in an extended sparring session and nearly succeeded in defeating him. Andy had to [[GuileHero pretend to be unconscious]] to catch Jubei off guard with a surprise attack.
* AdaptationRelationshipOverhaul: In the game series itself, Andy's master is said to be Mai Shiranui's grandfather. Yet, the anime films cast Jubei as Andy's master instead.
* DirtyOldMan: In anime depictions only. The second film had a scene where he leers at Mai before [[ThanksForTheMammary groping her.]] But in ''The Motion Picture'', Jubei makes a cameo appearance at Duck King's new nightclub, where he's accompanied by a group of younger women Mai's age.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: One of his signature attacks is to throw giant ''[[TrademarkFavoriteFood rice crackers]]'' at you.
* MiniatureSeniorCitizens: He's barely half the size of most of his opponents.
* OldMaster: The anime adaptations has Jubei serve as Andy's mentor figure, so long as there aren't any pretty girls around to divert Jubei's attention that is.
* PutOnABus: ''Fatal Fury 2: Special'' marked his second and final appearance as a playable character in the series. Since then, he's been reduced to being a background character in the KOF series.

[[folder:Cheng Sinzan - ''Taiwan'']]
->'''Voiced by:''' [[note]]Creator/{{Chafurin}} (in the anime)[[/note]]

->A Taiwanese Tai Chi expert whose strong power is as big as his own greed. Seeks to make himself even more rich from within his participation in the King of Fighters tournament.


* {{Acrofatic}} - And how. This guy was [[VideoGame/StreetFighterIV Rufus]] before Rufus existed.
* AllAsiansKnowMartialArts
* ArtEvolution - His sprite looked different in ''Fatal Fury 2'' and ''Fatal Fury Special''; later games made him look a lot more like in the official art.
* BalloonBelly - That is used to attack.
* BigBeautifulMan
* {{Greed}} - The main theme of his character.
* KiAttacks
* OpaqueNerdGlasses - Which evolve into CoolShades.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS - Sometimes his name is given in-game as "Chin."

[[folder:Axel Hawk - ''USA'']]

->A cruel, abrasive, rotund pro boxer with a mean streak a mile wide and a soft spot for his mother that's even bigger.


* ArtisticLicenseMartialArts - Just look at his stance. No matter how badass you may think you are, boxing just ''isn't'' meant to be fighting with your arms down and your guard wide open!
* AwesomeMcCoolName
* BlowYouAway
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas
* ExtremityExtremist
* {{Jerkass}}
* LongBusTrip
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Inspired from George Foreman.
* SNKBoss
* StoutStrength

[[folder:Laurence Blood - ''Spain'']]
->'''Voiced by:''' [[note]]Creator/KojiTotani (for the anime)[[/note]]

->A prissy, aristocatic Spanish matador who serves as Wolfgang Krauser's perrenial right hand man.


* AlternateCompanyEquivalent: To ''Street Fighter II's'' Vega, being that they're both Spanish matadors. However, Laurence's design is a closer representation of an actual matador's; complete with a sword and cape. And, unlike Vega, he actually fights in the bull ring.
* BeardOfEvil: Sports the exact same style as [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Mirror Spock]], in fact.
* CatchPhrase: "Strong... ''too strong''!" Said both times in anime film two, after being floored by Andy Bogard, and during ''The Motion Picture'' where he gets defeated by Panni.
* ClothingCombat: Being a matador, it's only natural that [[{{Hammerspace}} Blood hides his sword in his muleta]]. That very same cape double as a spinning instrument of murder in its own right.
* TheDragon: To Krauser.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: One of his specials is essentially the [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Psycho Crusher]].
* NobleDemon
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Sensitive guy to Krauser's manly man.
* SNKBoss
* SomethingAboutARose: In his victory pose, he slashes it with her rapier.
* TemptingFate: You'd think he'd realize he was outmatched after seeing Panni summon a massive column of water. Laurence dismisses it as mere spectacle, right before Panni flattens him with it.
* TheWorfEffect: The anime adaptations builds him up as Krauser's right-hand, only to have him get effortlessly curbstomped twice by Andy and Panni in the second and third films respectively.
** Andy shuts him up [[ShutUpHannibal in mid sentence]] with a surprise Zan Ei Gan, before flooring him with his Cho Reppadan HDM - ending the "match" in all of 2-3 seconds. By the time Andy walks away with Mai, Laurence's body had only just hit the ground.
** Panni evades Laurence's [[SpamAttack sword flurry]] and counters his "Bloody Spin" by shielding herself behind a pressurized column of water. Then uses it to slam him into the wall at high speed, dropping like a rag doll.
-->'''Laurence''': ''(wheezing)'' "Strong... ''too strong.''" ''(faints)''

[[folder:Wolfgang Krauser - ''Germany'']]
->'''Voiced by:''' [[note]]BJ Love, Creator/HirotakaSuzuoki (in the anime special) (Japanese), Creator/PaulDobson (in the anime special. And he actually makes Krauser sound German.) (English)[[/note]]

->The well-known and respected Earl of Stolheim in Germany [[spoiler:who happens to be the half-brother of Geese Howard]]. A cultured gentleman outside of the ring, he shows no compunction in a fight and will always commit the full extent of his ability in any battle.


* AntiVillain ([[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Noble Anti-Villain]])
* BadassMustache - Oddly enough, he didn't have one in the anime.
* BloodKnight
* BlowYouAway - Gigatech Cyclone.
* BulletProofFashionPlate - Used as a visual cue in the second anime special; whereas Geese has visibly aged and has been scarred, Krauser has retained his [[{{Bishonen}} youthful looks]], showing who is the better and more fearsome fighter of the two.
* ClothingDamage - Self-inflicted, no less! [[LampshadeHanging Poked at]] with his ''Real Bout 2'' ending, where his butlers become more and more PO'ed at having to refit Krauser's armor just for him to break out of it. Eventually, they [[MegatonPunch uppercut]] him into the stratosphere.
* [[spoiler:DrivenToSuicide - According to ''Memories of Stray Wolves'', Krauser committed suicide sometime after his loss at the hands of Terry.]]
* GoodScarsEvilScars - His head has a "X" going across it, but Krauser is not a [[XMarksTheHero hero]].
* {{Hunk}}: In a graceful, yet rugged way.
* LukeIAmYourFather - [[spoiler:Apparently, Geese is his half-brother.]]
* LightningBruiser
* NobleDemon - To a degree. He's not ''evil'' per se, just a major CombatPragmatist who doesn't have any mercy on his opponents, yet is more or less pleasant while not fighting.
* PlayingWithFire - Blitz Ball (no, not ''[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX that]]'' Blitzball), anyone?
* PublicDomainSoundtrack - [[OminousLatinChanting Dies Irae]] in ''Fatal Fury 2'' and ''Special''. [[OminousLatinChanting Lacrimosa]] in the ''Real Bout'' series.
* RetCanon - Originally, Krauser was simply a rival crimelord whom Geese was afraid to take on. The anime specials established Krauser and Geese's relationship as that of [[spoiler:half-brothers]] and SNK went with this scenario for the games from ''Fatal Fury Special'' and onward.
* [[spoiler:SelfMadeOrphan - Killed his father to become the Earl of Strolheim. Subverted in that he didn't hate Krauser Sr., he just did it because he had to.]]
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Manly man to Laurence's sensitive guy.
* ShirtlessScene - When he breaks out of that armor, that is.
* ShoutOut - His name, taken from Music/WolfgangAmadeusMozart and one of the ring names from former pro wrestler Karl Istaz.
* SNKBoss
* SpiritedCompetitor
* SurprisinglyGoodEnglish - It does help that his voice actor, B.J. Love, is a native speaker of English.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]]

[[folder:Ryo Sakazaki/Mr. Karate - ''Japan'']]

->GuestFighter from the ''VideoGame/ArtOfFighting'' series, where he serves as the main protagonist. The son of Takuma Sakazaki, older brother of Yuri Sakazaki, and best friend/rival of Robert Garcia. 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).


* EightiesHair: He sports a mullet in ''Special'' and ''Art of Fighting 2''. From then on, his hairstyle changed to being short and spiky.
* AlternateCompanyEquivalent: [[Creator/{{SNK}} SNK's]] version of ''Street Fighter's'' Ryu.
* AnimalMotifs: The dragon. Goes by the [[RedBaron nickname]] of "The Invincible Dragon."
* BadassBeard[=/=]PermaStubble: He has a moustache and goatee in ''Wild Ambition''.
* BonusBoss: Of ''Fatal Fury Special'' (this was the first step towards what would end being ''The King of Fighters'' franchise) and ''Wild Ambition'' (as [[LegacyCharacter Mr. Karate (II)]] - home version only).
* ButNotTooForeign: Ryo is of mixed heritage, being half Japanese (father/Takuma Sakazaki) and half American (mother/Ronnet).
* TheCameo: His inclusion in ''Special'' [[RequiredSpinoffCrossover served as a tie-in]] to the ''Art of Fighting'' series.
* FriendlyRivalry: With Terry, starting in ''Wild Ambition''. They've been good friends ever since and both their teams regularly compete with each other in the KOF Tournament.
* HairColorDissonance - Is supposed to be blond, but appears to have a bit of an orange hue in this game.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: He's the protagonist of the first two AOF games and became the first canonical champion of the King of Fighters by defeating Geese, 10 years prior to the events of the original ''Fatal Fury''.
* KiAttacks: As in AOF, Ryo can use both the Kooh Ken and it's HDM variant, the Haoh Shokoh Ken which is a massive wall of Ki that depletes [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill half his opponent's health meter]] if it connects!
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Ryuko Ranbu is an unblockable desperation attack that becomes available once his life meter drops below ¼.
* {{Shotoclone}}:
** KameHameHadoken: Both his Kooh Ken and the much dealier Haoh Shokoh Ken.
** {{Shoryuken}}: Koho is his standard anti-air attack. In his own series it has low priority, which made it unsafe to use. But in ''Fatal Fury'', it was given invincibility frames on startup.
** HurricaneKick: Hien Shippuu Kyaku is a two hit flying kick. In the latter parts of the KOF series, it became a three hit attack that begins with a lunging knee followed by two spinning kicks.

[[folder:"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.


* ActionGirl: She works as a private investigator in one of the most crime ridden (fictional) cities in the US and has fought alongside KOF veterans such as King and Mai Shiranui, while undercover.
* BadassNormal: Her fighting prowess is limited strictly to her own speed, strength, and military training. She has no ability to channel Ki, unlike many of her friends, or the people she's assigned to investigate.
* BareYourMidriff: Her standard attire includes a red halter top, pictured above.
* BikerBabe
* ButNotTooForeign: Her grandfather was Japanese.
* CanineCompanion: Her pet dog Antonio (or Anton for short). Tends to pop up in several of Mary's poses.
* {{Expy}}: According to the series' developer she was modeled after [[Anime/DragonBallZ Android 18]].
* FaceHeelTurn - Not canonically, but her EX version from ''Real Bout Special'' depicts what would happen if Mary ever went bad and became a sexbomb sadist. She clearly is a MixAndMatch of DarkActionGirl and FemmeFatale[=/=]TheVamp[=/=]TheBaroness. EX Blue Mary even wears [[LadyInRed a red jacket]] and a black bra. Her ending shows her desire to make Terry into her "[[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything pet.]]" When Joe volunteers to also be her pet ([[EvilIsSexy and who could blame him?]]), she retorts that he already is one.
* FemmeFatale - Subverted. She appears to be one at first, but it turns out that she's actually a kind-hearted ActionGirl.
* FingerlessGloves:
* ForeheadOfDoom: Particularly in her first appearance; since then, it's been toned down.
* IntercontinuityCrossover: In the KOF series, she has a working relationship with King, whom she's teamed up with on occasion. She also seems familiar with Whip, albeit to a lesser extent.
* JigglePhysics: Funnily enough, all that she's wearing is a ''bra''.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The [[ water-induced nip-slip ringout]] from ''Real Bout''.
* HerHeartWillGoOn: She moves on after her boyfriend's death by the end of ''Fatal Fury 3'', where she continues to serve as a private investigator in South Town to honor his memory.
* MurderousThighs
* NiceGirl: While she's serious about her job, she's usually very friendly.
* SecondLove: She's implied to have developed feelings for Terry Bogard, though nothing comes of it in ''Fatal Fury's'' canon. The KOF series makes the attraction between them more apparent, but they're still only friends as of this writing.
* ShipTease: In the KOF series, she often has flirtatious pre fight dialogue with Terry and will occasionally appear in the Fatal Fury team's endings to congratulate him. Likewise, Terry sometimes has special victory quotes for when he defeats her.
* ShockAndAwe: Gained an electric attack in the first ''Real Bout'' game, but it's rarely seen in other games.
** It's a StaticStunGun, by the way.
* TragicKeepsake: Her jacket [[ItWasAGift was a present]] from her dead lover Butch.
* WillTheyOrWontThey: As previously noted, she has a thing for Terry, but it remains to be seen if it ever goes beyond casual flirting.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: She's said to use Commando Sambo, but mainly subdues her opponents with grappling manuevers and submission holds.

* AlternateCompanyEquivalent: He is SNK's answer to [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Dee Jay]], given their similarities when it comes to being cheerful musicians.
* TheApprentice: To Richard Meyer.
* BlowYouAway: Several of his standard specials are wind based kicks and his first HDM generates a mini-cyclone around his body.
* DanceBattler:.
* PrettyBoy: [[ With a smile]]!
* SuperiorSuccessor: In terms of gameplay, both his form and his fighting ability is leagues above Meyer's. Bob even takes over his role as the series' resident Capoeirista from ''Fatal Fury 3'' onwards, limiting Meyers to only making cameo appearances.
* ThemeNaming: All of his attacks tend to have animal name motifs (Wild Wolf, Bison's Horn, Lynx's Fang, Rolling Turtle, Hornet Attack, Dangerous Wolf).

[[folder: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.


* AlternateCompanyEquivalent: He is SNK's answer to [[VideoGame/FinalFight Mike Haggar]], in terms of both appearance and motivation. He also resembles Music/FreddieMercury, down to the hair style, moustache and dungarees.
* BadassMustache
* BigOMG - His DeathCryEcho.
* BoisterousBruiser
* {{Flanderization}} - To an even greater extent than Hon-Fu and Yamazaki. Come ''Real Bout Special'', his design was changed from a HeroicBuild to a [[StoutStrength caricaturally bulky frame]], which received a ShoutOut in his ''Real Bout 2'' ending, where he is shown popping out of an overbody. Also, his [[HotBlooded fiery]] [[TurnsRed temper]], [[NoIndoorVoice propensity for top-of-the-lungs shouting]] and [[DumbMuscle brawn-over-brains persona]] took similar proportions: in the Japanese version of ''RBS'', his win quotes are written in katakana and come close to HulkSpeak:
--> "Nice guy! Nice fight!"
--> "Yamazakiiii! Kill you!"
--> "Billy, you dangerous."
--> [[ForeignCussWord "Fuck you!]] Geese!"
* ForcedIntoEvil - In his first appearance, as Yamakazi blackmailed him to work as Yamazaki's henchman if he wanted his son back.
* LargeHam - folks.
* LightningBruiser
* PapaWolf
* [[SayMyName Say His Name]] - "[[LargeHam JUNIOOOOOOOOOOOOOR!!]]"
* SurprisinglyGoodEnglish - Again, his VA is a native speaker of English.

[[folder:Hon Fu - ''Hong Kong'']]
->'''Voiced by:''' [[note]]Creator/ToshiyukiMorikawa ('''MAJOR''' PlayingAgainstType, if you remember what kind of roles Morikawa plays.)[[/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.


* ArchEnemy - To Yamazaki. This carries onto the ''[[VideoGame/SNKVsCapcom Capcom vs. SNK]]'' series, where Hon Fu joins up with [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Chun-Li]] to bust Yamazaki and {{cameo}}s in her intro pose with Yamazaki in ''[=CvS1=]'' and ''[=CvS2=]''.
* BruceLeeClone - Subverted. He has the [[FightingWithChucks nunchaku]] and trademark high-pitched {{Kiai}}, but he takes more pages from Creator/JackieChan.
* ButtMonkey - 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.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass - His kindly demeanour and streak of bad luck notwithstanding, he is a master of Northern Style Kung-Fu and the nunchaku.
* {{Expy}} - Of Creator/JackieChan.
* FightingWithChucks
* {{Flanderization}} - While he was always somewhat clumsy and quirky, he gradually turned into an out-and-out goofball, culminating with his ''Real Bout 2'' [[LimitBreak P.Power attack]]: he hits the ground with his nunchaku, causing an explosion which leaves his clothes singed and him with a dumbfounded expression.
* GroinAttack - Unusually and hilariously enough, it is not directed towards his opponent, but rather towards ''himself''. Should you use his [[SpamAttack 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."
* TheKlutz
* PlayingWithFire
* JusticeWillPrevail - He's a SuperCop. 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.
* TheWorfEffect - When Terry, Andy or Joe faces Yamazaki for the second time in ''Fatal Fury 3'', he has already curb-stomped Hon-Fu.

[[folder:Sokaku Mochizuki - ''Japan'']]
->'''Voiced by:''' [[note]]Creator/KoujiIshii[[/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.

* BaldOfAwesome
* TheFaceless: Subverted. His face can be seen sometimes, but it's hidden by his kasa most of the time.
* PlayingWithFire: Like Mai he can envelop himself in fire.
* ReligiousBruiser
* ShockAndAwe: Can summon lightning from the sky.
* SimpleStaff
* SummonMagic
* TheStoic

[[folder:Ryuji Yamazaki - ''Japan'']]
->'''Voiced by:''' [[note]]Creator/KoujiIshii (several games), Tsuguo Mogami (''KOF XIV'')[[/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. [[AlternateContinuity ''The King of Fighters '97'']] reveals that he possesses the blood of the {{Orochi}}, which explains a ''lot''.


* AHandfulForAnEye: Subverted; One of his moves involves him kicking sand/dirt into his opponent's face.
* AnimalMotifs - The snake, as seen during his Sadomaso tongue-flicking taunt.
* '''AxCrazy'''
* BloodyMurder - After a fashion. His secret 5th level of his [[ThisIsADrill Drill]] super has Yamazaki throwing multiple Double Return projectiles, which makes it look like he is spraying his opponents with his blood.
* TheBusCameBack: He finally makes his return as a DLC character in KOF XIV.
* CatchAndReturn - One of his specials consists of grabbing energy projectile attacks and then nonchalantly flinging them back at the opponent at breakneck speed.
* ChekhovsGunman - [[TheReveal 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.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: 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.
* CoatCape - 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 [[FlungClothing discards it]] as he takes his position for the start of the match.
* CombatSadomasochist - 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.
* DarkAndTroubledPast - Aside from the above, [[AudioAdaptation 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.
* TheDragon: His boss is Jin Chonshu in Fatal Fury 3.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Turns down Yashiro's offer to join the Hakkeshu. Besides, if Orochi destroys everything, there'd be nobody for Yamazaki to fight against.
* FingerlessGloves
* {{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 [[EvilLaugh 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.
* FurAndLoathing - Just look at that [[BadassLongcoat pimp coat]].
* {{Hunk}}
* TheInsomniac: He apparently has no problem staying awake for up to three days at a time.
* KnifeNut
* [[EvilLaugh Maniacal Laugh]] - With excessive drooling/foaming at the mouth.
* MulticoloredHair
* PlayedForLaughs - His Snake Arm move is seen as a high-speed bitch slap.
* PsychoForHire
* RubberMan
* TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty - CombatPragmatist turned UpToEleven. He [[AHandfulForAnEye kicks sand in his opponents' eyes]] and [[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown stomps]] [[GroinAttack 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)
* WhipItGood: His trademark Snake Arm attack, which might as well be a variation of the Flicker Jab.
* WithMyHandsTied - Always keeps one hand his pockets... unless he's stabbing you to death with his knife.
** If he ever takes his other hand out of his pocket, either A) he's about to stab the shit out of you, B) he's about to CatchAndReturn one of your projectiles, C) you're on the ground and [[OhCrap you're about to suffer through the worst version of his Drill super]], or D) he's out cold. Aside from that last scenario, you can guarantee that you ''don't'' want him to take his hand out of his pocket.

[[folder:Jin Chonshu - ''China'']]
->'''Voiced by:''' [[note]]Creator/KappeiYamaguchi[[/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.


* [[TruthInTelevision Historically Accurate]] AbusivePredecessors: Although the Qin Dynasty was significant as the first unifying empire of Chinese history, records tell of how brutally totalitarian and ruthless the Qins were during their rule. Qin Hai Long, the ancestor of the Jin Twins, was have said to been the more monsterous and bloodthirsty of the twins who originally founded Hakkyokuseiken and found the secrets of immortality before their early demises.
* AffablyEvil: In ''Fatal Fury 3'' and ''Real Bout''. He drops the act starting in ''Special''.
* BigBad: of Fatal Fury 3. This is also one of the two members of a BigBadEnsemble in Real Bout Fatal Fury with the other competing Big Bad being Geese Howard.
* BilingualBonus[=/=]ItIsPronouncedTroPay: 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 SpellMyNameWithAnS via the final part of his name having an extended vowel via the spelling "Chonshuu").
* BlueOni: In stark defiance to his choice of color, Chonshu is the calmer, more easy going of the pair, at least outwardly.
* ChinesePeople
* DivergentCharacterEvolution: The pair get more and more different properties and moves as time goes on.
* TheDreaded: It's implied during his ending in ''Fatal Fury 3'' and ''Neo Geo Battle Colosseum'', that if the Jin Twins were to ever [[PowersViaPossession reawaken as their "true selves"]], that Chonshu would actually be the worst of the two.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: ...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.
* FinalBoss: Of ''Fatal Fury 3'', unless you've met the necessary criteria to face [[TrueFinalBoss Chonrei.]]
* HarmfulToMinors: His backstory.
* Immortality Seeker: This is one of the reasons he is looking for the Jin scrolls.
* PowerFloats: Seen during his victory pose, where he levitates and snickers at his opponent.
* PowersViaPossession: 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.
* SealedInAPersonShapedCan: So long as the Jin Scrolls remain sealed, that is...
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Sensitive Guy to Chonrei's Manly Man.
* ShotoClone: Both he and and brother, though they lack an equivalent of a HurricaneKick.
* TeleportSpam: His forward and backdash animations causes him to teleport, as do several of his special attacks.
* TwinTelepathy
* UnflinchingWalk: If you simply hold forward, he casually (albeit, still menacingly) stalks up to his opponent.

[[folder:Jin Chonrei - ''China'']]
->'''Voiced by:''' [[note]]Creator/KappeiYamaguchi[[/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.


* [[TruthInTelevision Historically Accurate]] AbusivePredecessors: Although the Qin Dynasty was significant as the first unifying empire of Chinese history, records tell of how brutally totalitarian and ruthless the Qins were during their rule. Qin Wang Long was the general of Qin Shi Huang, and was a merciless warrior said to have slain a thousand soldiers singlehandedly in combat. Qin Kong Long is Qin Wang Long's eldest son, and was one of the writers of the founding scroll of the Hakkyokuseiken School and the secrets to immortality, until his untimely death. With Qing Wang Long's sons desiring to return to life, they also seek to wrap up the unfinished business of immortalizing themselves and reviving the Qin Dynasty through global domination.
* AnimeHair: And it's [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blue]] with [[SkunkStripe yellow streaks]]!
* AntiVillain: [[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Villain in Name Only]].
* BigBrotherInstinct - Doubles as a BerserkButton and crosses into KnightTemplarBigBrother territory; the guy ''will'' snap if you defeat Chonshu, but not before calling you "[[{{Narm}} mousse-head]]."
* BilingualBonus[=/=]ItIsPronouncedTroPay: 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 Chonglei (Chee-n Choh-ng-lay).
** Japanese/on'yomi: Shin Suurai (though in his used name he unlike his brother Chonshu averts the usual SpellMyNameWithAnS cases of romaji).
* BringIt: his taunt, along with very audibly [[CrackingUp cracking his neck.]]
* ChinesePeople
* DemonicPossession: His power comes from his ancestor's spirit possessing him. [[spoiler: He wants to get rid of these spirits unlike his brother.]]
* {{Expy}}: Looks like a kid [[Manga/DragonBall Vegeta]]. Sometimes he even has the attitude too.
* [[spoiler:GoodAllAlong: He tears up the Jin Scrolls in his and his brother's endings, ruining the plans of their ancestors that are possessing them to start conquering again.]]
* HarmfulToMinors: His backstory.
* HotBlooded: So much so that in his idle stance, his fingers twitch impatiently and he barely seems able to stand still.
* RedOni: Again, in defiance of his color scheme. He's the raging, hot blooded, explosive red to Chonshu's subdued blue.
* ScreamingWarrior: While this also applies to his brother, Chonrei's case has him display a more deep-tone from Kappei Yamaguchi's voice acting.
* SealedInAPersonShapedCan: As long as the Jin Scrolls remained sealed.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The Manly Man to Chonshu's Sensitive Guy.
* ShotoClone: Same as Chonshu, though he's more focused on single-hit moves than gimmicks.
* TrueFinalBoss: In ''Fatal Fury 3'', provided the player wins every fight without continuing, or any rounds lost, and defeats Chonshu with an AA rank or higher.
* TwinTelepathy
* UnflinchingWalk: Same as his brother.
* WhoWantsToLiveForever: Despite him being so close to Chonshu, he's not as keen on eternal life as his bro. [[spoiler:He even tears up the Scrolls of Jin in both his and Chonshu's endings in ''Real Bout'', both to stop anyone else from trying to dabble on its secrets like Geese did, and to give himself and his brother a normal life under Master Tung's wing.]]

!''Real Bout Fatal Fury 2''

[[folder:Li Xiangfei - ''USA'']]
->'''Voiced by:''' [[note]]Creator/MamiKingetsu[[/note]]

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


* AnimeChineseGirl: Made readily apparent by [[OdangoHair her hairstyle]] and her attire.
** ButNotTooForeign: Although she is of Chinese ancestry, Xiangfei was born and raised in Southtown, making her Chinese-American.
* BigEater: One of her two main defining character traits, though it's mainly seen during her team endings in the ''[[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters King of Fighters]]'' series.
* CuteBruiser: She cute, she's hyper, and she hits with the force of a bullet train.
** LightningBruiser: Invoked during some of her specials, which are preceded with a sudden burst of speed.
* FlashStep: Her Taitesujin HDM [[ (seen at 3:30-3:32)]] has her stomp the ground, then suddenly teleport across screen and shoulder check her opponent.
* ForeheadOfDoom:
* FunPersonified: Xiangfei takes her job as a waitress seriously, but mainly competes for fun.
* GenkiGirl: Her ''other'' defining character trait, which is on a level near rivalling [[Characters/ArtOfFighting Yuri Sakazaki's]] in terms of sheer childishness. In other words, she's a goofball.
* HammerSpace: Seen during her victory poses, where one of them has her whip out a pair of jian from thin air.
* IShallTauntYou: From making faces and sticking out her tongue, to simply pointing and laughing.
* KiAttacks
* OcularGushers: If she loses due to time expiring, she falls to her knees and turns on the waterworks ala [[Manga/RanmaOneHalf Soun Tendo.]]
* OdangoHair: Her hair is done up in what's commonly referred to as "Ox Horns", with a looped [[BraidsOfAction pair of braids.]]
* SpamAttack: Majinga deals ''100 hits'', while the HDM version varies from 101-108 hits depending on the game.
* TeenGenius: 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.

[[folder:Rick Strowd - ''USA'']]

->A Native American boxer who works prize fights at a casino. Believing he has a higher calling as a fighter than simply acting as a showpiece, he decides to enter a street fighting tournament.


* BlowYouAway
* DarkSkinnedBlond
* DemotedToExtra - Notice how much emphasis is put on him and Xiangfei for this game. Rick [[WhatCouldHaveBeen was considered for the lineup]] of ''The King of Fighters '99'', but was ultimately passed over in favor of Xiangfei. Sadly, it seems that Rick might never make it into ''KOF'', especially with Vanessa "borrowing" his moves.
* ExtremityExtremist
* FingerlessGloves
* {{Hunk}}: And ''how''!
* MagicalNativeAmerican
** ButNotTooForeign - His dad is a Native American, but his mom is Caucasian.
* MulticoloredHair - White and black[[HairColorDissonance /]][[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blue]].
* RapidFireFisticuffs
* TallDarkAndHandsome: At 6'1".
* WalkingShirtlessScene

!''Real Bout Fatal Fury Special: Dominated Mind''

[[folder:Alfred - ''USA'']]
->'''Voiced by:''' [[note]]Creator/HiroYuki[[/note]]

->A young man whose passion is flying. Became the main protagonist in ''Dominated Mind'' to defend his village and to get revenge against White for killing his grandfather.


* BonusBoss
* EarlyBirdCameo[=/=]MarthDebutedInSmashBros - Although he was created to be the protagonist of ''Dominated Mind'', Alfred's first appearance was in ''Real Bout 2'', a game released ''months'' before his proper debut. Since ''Dominated Mind'' was never released outside Japan, most people overseas know him for being a bonus boss in ''Real Bout 2''.
* FingerlessGloves
* FunPersonified
* GogglesDoNothing - Subverted. Makes use of them when flying a plane like in the ''Dominated Mind'' intro. Also uses during certain moves.
* TheHero - Of ''[[WordSaladTitle Real Bout Garou Densetsu Special]]: [[MeaningfulName Dominated Mind]]''.
* NotQuiteFlight - Can glide, but it's unknown if he has any degree of [[BlowYouAway aerokinesis]].
* OnlyOneName - Some fansites list his full name as "Alfred Airhawk." That is a purely fan-made full name.
* ScarfOfAsskicking
* SNKBoss - Can't utilize the line system like everyone else or use chain combos, but his attacks do ''double damage'', he has a command throw that can be used on block, and his super take off insane chunks from your lifebar. See [[ here]] for an example.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood - Apples!

[[folder:White - ''England'']]
->'''Voiced by:''' [[note]]Creator/KeijiFujiwara (in a ''grand'' case of PlayingAgainstType)[[/note]]

->A dangerous British drug lord who has more than a few screws loose in his head. Wields a staff and has powers of mind control. Loathes society and desires to remake it in an image he sees fit.


* AxCrazy - Probably the only character to outdo Yamazaki in this department. Now ''that'' says something.
* ArmsDealer - Mentioned as being one in his profile, though it never seems to figure into the story.
* [[{{Brainwashed}} Brainwashing]] - White's preferred method of dealing with rivals.
* ButForMeItWasTuesday - White with Alfred's village.
* EarlyBirdCameo - Shows up in Yamazaki and Hon-Fu's endings in ''Real Bout 2''.
* {{Expy}} - Is a huge ShoutOut to Alex [=DeLarge=] from ''Film/AClockworkOrange''.
* EvilerThanThou - Enthralls Billy Kane, Geese's former [[TheDragon Dragon]], to his will.
* FacialMarkings - Which look like eyeliner.
* KaizoTrap - When his life bar is depleted when you're on match point, White will deploy a cheap shot from his staff, which is a OneHitKO. You have to dodge this and score one final hit on him to end the match.
* LackOfEmpathy - Described in his profile as a "demented psycho who finds pleasure in making people suffer".
* ManiacalLaugh
* MeaningfulName: Say, what color is he wearing?
** Although, this becomes an aversion if you pick anything other than his main colors.
* MonsterClown
* OnlyOneName - Presumably as another parallel to Alex.
* PeoplePuppets
* PsychicPowers - Mind control and precognition, mainly. He's also got some illusion-generating abilities, which hints at telepathy.
* PsychopathicManchild
* RedEyesTakeWarning
* SNKBoss - Can't jump, duck, dash, or block, but has high priority over ''everything''.
* TakingYouWithMe - [[KaizoTrap After being beaten]], White fires a desperation attack that kills your character instantly if it connects unless your character blocks low or jumps over it. But afterward you have a couple of seconds to [[CantGetAwayWithNuthin make him pay dearly for cheating against you]].
* [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere Villain From Nowhere]] - White appeared in one game with little storyline justification and hasn't been seen since.

!''Garou: Mark of the Wolves''

[[folder:Rock Howard - ''USA'']]
->'''Voiced by:''' [[note]]Creator/EijiTakemoto (in his first famous role)[[/note]]

->Son of Geese and adopted by Terry. Has a grudge against his father for abandoning him and his mother which caused her death [[spoiler: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.


* {{Angst}} - Or {{Wangst}}.
** BadassAngster: Say what you will, he can still lay the smackdown.
* DisappearedDad - We're still not sure whether Geese actually died or if it was just a case of NeverFoundTheBody.
* EarlyBirdCameo - Rock is the kid who shows up in Terry's endings in ''3'' and throughout the ''Real Bout'' series.
* {{Emo}} - [[MisaimedFandom Commonly misconstrued to be one]]. [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters K']], a character similar to Rock who debuted around the same time, is also seen as one by proxy.
* FaceHeelTurn - Approved by TheHero, even. Rock ends up joining Kain and becoming his [[TheDragon Dragon]], but in order to find out about his MissingMom. Terry told him to just forge his own path.
** ForcedIntoEvil - However, he's not exactly thrilled and apologized to Terry as he left.
* FingerlessGloves
* GenerationXerox - Tries to avoid this, but...
** A lighter example comes from the fact that Rock is childhood buddies with Jae and Dong. In a sense, this descends from Terry and Kim's own friendly rivalry.
* HairColorDissonance - While it was rectified in later {{Crossover}} appearances, Rock's hair has a noticeable green tint in ''Garou''.
* TheHero - Of ''Garou'', arguably.
* HeroicBSOD - A somewhat milder example: if Rock wins a match using his Neo Raging Storm or Neo Deadly Rave ([[InTheBlood moves he "inherited" from Geese]]), he'll slump down to the floor in pain, agonizingly and momentarily unable to control his Blood Rage.
--> ''Why does my evil blood boil?''
* InTheBlood
* KiAttacks
* NoSocialSkills - Rock can function normally in society, but since [[RaisedByDudes he grew up surrounded mainly by men]], [[{{Adorkable}} he's flustered by women]], hence his shy reaction to B. Jenet (whom he suggests to get less revealing clothes). However, this doesn't stop him from helping those in need (as seen in his interactions with Hotaru).
* OedipusComplex - To a degree. Rock is pretty much ''defined'' by his hate of his DisappearedDad, Geese Howard.
* RedEyesTakeWarning - Subverted and later played straight in his ending.

[[folder: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 AttentionWhore. (When she runs, she ''waves''.)


* BlowYouAway
* CombatStilettos: ''[[ImprobableWeaponUser Which she]] [[ShoeSlap whacks you with.]]''
* CoolBoat: Which is capable of turning into a submarine.
* FemmeFatale: Although in no way is she evil, Jennie ''will'' use her womanly charms to gain the desired effect.
* FingerlessGloves
* ForeignFanservice: British. She's MsFanservice in ''Garou'', considering the absence of Mai and Blue Mary. Her only competition is Hotaru, and that isn't much competition at all.
* FunPersonified
* {{Going Commando}}/{{Vapor Wear}}: Her [[ sprite]] and [[ animations]] in ''Garou'' send the impression B. Jenet's not wearing underwear thanks to how she wears a dress that [[ShesGotLegs REALLY shows off the legs]] while doing her [[KickChick strong kicks]]. This is especially noticeable when she's KO'd or doing her stiletto attack, as both look suspciously like she's exposing her crotch. Her official art in the same game does show her wearing underwear though, see {{Panty Shot}} below. As such, this might be from an oversight in development.
* GoodBadGirl: More or less.
* KickChick: The LK Arts seem to be primarily based off of Savate, the French version of kickboxing.
* KissOfDeath - In one of her super moves, she ends her attack with a kiss complete with a heart... which still damages you.
* TheLadette
* PantyShot: Her official art for ''Garou: Mark of the Wolves'' [[ shows her underwear]]. This carries over into her [[ King of Fighters: Maximum Impact 2 official art]] [[ and model]], but not her ''King of Fighters XI'' appearence.
* {{Pirate}}: The Lillien Knights are [[APirate400YearsTooLate modern-day equivalents of this]].
* PirateGirl
* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: Subverted. The reason they joined the tournament is to loot Kain of his belongings.
* RichBitch: Subverted, she's from a rich family but doesn't like relaying on ''their'' money.
* RuthlessModernPirates[=/=]APirate400YearsTooLate
* SexyBacklessOutfit
* SexyWalk
* ShesGotLegs
* ShoeSlap
* TheTease: Especially with Hokutomaru which unnerves him a bit.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Sirloin steak.

[[folder:Gato - ''Unknown (implied to be Japan)'']]
->'''Voiced by:''' [[note]]Creator/KoujiIshii[[/note]]

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


* AloofOlderBrother - If he is indeed Hotaru's brother.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy
* BadassNormal
* GoodScarsEvilScars - He's got three on his back, courtesy of his father.
** AcheyScars
* HandicappedBadass -[[spoiler: Is blinded by a man who appears to be his father in his ending.]]
* {{Jerkass}} - Wouldn't think twice to shout at his poor little sister to get the hell out.
** Hell, wouldn't think twice to shout at ''anyone'' to get the hell out... complete with TrashTalk.
* MurderousThighs - A male version; one of his super moves has him jumping with the opponent he just knocked in the air ''[[RuleOfCool breaking their neck in midair]]''.
* TheStoic

[[folder:Hotaru Futaba - ''Japan'']]

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


* ArmorPiercingSlap - To Gato in her ending. He "lets her off the hook" as he leaves, but promises to kill her should they meet again.
* CuteBruiser
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything - Her "[[GettingCrapPastTheRadar orgasmic]]" super.
* HairDecorations
* GirlishPigtails
* KiAttacks
* MartialPacifist - A more tragic example; Hotaru simply wants to reunite her family. Fighting, unfortunately, is the only way to go.
* MeaningfulName - Her name means "firefly," which explains the animation behind a few of her attacks.
* MoralityPet - Possibly, for Gato.
* MusclesAreMeaningless - Defied with moderate success. As opposed to Gato's physical, "hard" style, Hotaru fights with internal (or "soft") Kung Fu and most of her special moves involve KiAttacks.
* ParentalAbandonment - Her mom is dead and her father has left for parts unknown. Hotaru is currently searching for both her dad and Gato, who is heavily implied (but not outright stated) to be her older brother.
* WeaselMascot - Her pet marten Itokatsu.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

[[folder: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, [[spoiler:he retires]] but comes back anyway after he caught a glimpse of a young fan who admires him.


* AnimalMotifs: The griffon.
* BoisterousBruiser
* ContemplateOurNavels - Considers leaving the ring because he sees himself as a has-been. [[TenMinuteRetirement It takes just the support of one fan to encourage Tizoc to do otherwise]].
* FingerlessGloves
* {{Hunk}}: He's certainly got the muscles and manliness for this!
* LargeHam - He loves [[CallingYourAttacks to shout his move names]], possibly to an exaggerated degree.
* LoveFreak
* MaskedLuchador - Although more bulky than usual, see below.
* MightyGlacier - As luchadors go, Tizoc is proportioned much more like a Raiden/Big Bear or [[Franchise/StreetFighter Zangief]] than a lightweight lucha libre specialist.
* ShoutOut - A few of his moves seem to mimic that of Japanese pro wrestler Tiger Mask.
* SpinningPiledriver - [[InASingleBound Ahem...]] [[MeteorMove Big]]. [[FinishingMove Fall]].
* WalkingShirtlessScene

[[folder:Freeman - ''England'']]

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


* AxCrazy - Oh boy, that's an understatement.
* BarbarianLongHair - He's a serial killer with long messy hair. You can't be any more barbarian than that.
* BareYourMidriff - His outfit can be described as [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Benimaru]] Goes Goth.
* BlackCloak - During his introduction.
* BloodKnight - Obsessed with the concept of death to an almost comical degree.
* CompositeCharacter - 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 ([[ShoutOut with heavy metal-themed attack names to match]]).
* CounterAttack - His Creeping Death super attack just has him walk forward. However, if his opponent tries a physical attack, cue GoryDiscretionShot.
* EvilAlbino
* EvilRedhead
* TheFaceless - His face is never shown (and is {{hidden|Eyes}} [[BlindingBangs 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.
* GoryDiscretionShot - One of his [=DM/SDMs=], Creeping Death, has him viciously attacking his opponent in the dark.
* MadArtist - He thinks of granting someone a "beautiful death" as doing his victims a great service.
* ManiacalLaugh
* MistakenIdentity - He's ''extremely'' reminiscent of Iori Yagami from ''The King of Fighters''. He also bears a more-than-passing resemblance to [[VideoGame/StreetFighterIII Remy]], who ''himself'' looks similar to Iori.
** {{Hilarious|InHindsight}}ly, Iori's new moveset in ''XII'' has fans now claiming Iori to be a ShoutOut of Freeman.
* NeverFoundTheBody - He's shot by SWAT teams in his ending and falls into a river, his fate never revealed.
** PutOnABus - And this is the main excuse for why he hasn't appeared in anything since Garou MotW.
* SerialKiller
* ShoutOut - Not only does his fighting style resemble that of [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters 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 "[[Music/AliceCooper Welcome to my nightmare.]]"
** Funnily enough, Freeman has a couple of [[{{ShoutOut}} shout-outs]] of his own in the form of [[VideoGame/XuanDouZhiWang Tsukikage Arashi]] and [[VideoGame/UnderNightInBirth Carmine]]. (with Carmine being a slightly more egregious example). A HilariousInHindsight subversion comes in the form of one of Benimaru's alternate color options in [[VideoGame/CapcomVsSNK2MarkOfTheMillennium Capcom VS SNK 2]], which essentially ''mirrors'' one of Freeman's alt-color options in Garou MotW.
* WolverineClaws - 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.

[[folder:Hokutomaru - ''Japan'']]
->'''Voiced by:''' [[note]]Creator/JunkoTakeuchi[[/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.


* BigEater - One of his winposes has him eating two large apples and a bomb in one gulp each.
* FragileSpeedster
* CrossdressingVoices - Voiced by Creator/JunkoTakeuchi. So if Hokutomaru sounds familiar to you, [[Manga/{{Naruto}} he damn well should]].
* {{Ninja}}
** NinjaBrat
* NoIndoorVoice - He's not a HighlyVisibleNinja, but he's a Highly ''Audible'' one.
* ScarfOfAsskicking

[[folder:Kevin Rian - ''USA'']]

->A SWAT officer who is often seen around with his young friend, Marky. He's looking for Freeman, the killer of his partner, Marky's father.


* AlternateCompanyEquivalent - He kinda reminds you of a more competent [[VideoGame/MortalKombat3 Stryker]].
* CowboyCop
* EveryoneIsASuspect - He suspects ''everyone he encounters'' of possibly being the one who kidnapped Marky.
* FairCop - A male variant.
* FingerlessGloves
* {{Hunk}}: Check out those muscles! And that smile!
* PapaWolf - Do ''not'' mess with Marky if you value your life.
* PlayingWithFire
* PoliceBrutality - He's a heavily armed SWAT officer running around beating up martial artists. Unsurprisingly, he's [[GameBreaker extremely overpowered]].
* SpearCounterpart - Kevin is basically a male version of Blue Mary; It's been suggested that he's her brother or cousin.
** WordOfGod says he's a "distant relative."
** CompositeCharacter - He's more of a power-player, making him more similar to [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Ralf Jones]] than Blue Mary (a grappler somewhat like Clark Still).

[[folder: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.


* EightiesHair - [[FunnyAfro Frompadours]] have [[AfroAsskicker only been so badass]] [[Advertising/SegataSanshiro once before.]]
* AfroAsskicker
* BadassBeard
* [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Black Brazilian-American Presumably Buddhist Or Shintoist Karateka With An Arabic/Indian-Sounding Name Who Speaks Japanese]]
* [[{{Bowdlerise}} Bowdlerization]] - Inverted; Butt is his name in the ''American'' versions.
** [[WordOfGod This was to prevent confusion with Ricco Rodriguez, a mixed martial artist.]]
* ButNotTooBlack - Very averted. He's as black as they come and no one would have it any other way.
* ButNotTooForeign / GratuitousSpanish - Brazil's official language is Portuguese, yet Marco's name in the Japanese version is spelled the Spanish way, ending in "Z." The Portuguese version ends in "S." As for the DubNameChange, to quote Creator/AlexTrebek: [[UnfortunateName "I won't ask."]]
* CarpetOfVirility
* DoesNotLikeShoes - All official artwork depicts him barefoot. [[OverlyNarrowSuperlative All three of them!]]
* DubNameChange - Although it's utterly ''absurd''. The name "Marco Rodriguez" was dropped due to its similarity to a real martial artist, sure, but why was "''Khushnood Butt''" the winning replacement?
* {{Hammerspace}} - One of his winposes has him pull out a wooden panel as big as he is. Fine and dandy until [[FridgeLogic you realize the implications]] of [[WillfullyWeak him being as competent a fighter as everyone else]] [[WithMyHandsTied even though he carries several pounds of wood underneath his dogi]].
* HermitGuru - Deliberately lives and trains in a forest, away from the city, with the aforementioned bear.
* HotBlooded - Played both for laughs and seriously.
* HotBloodedSideburns - Full force.
* {{Hunk}}: With that pompadour with his!
* ImAHumanitarian - Hopefully he's joking, but the sight of Tizoc makes Marco hungry. He mistakes him for a giant poultry.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed - Shares [[HotBlooded quite]] a [[RuleOfFunny few]] [[EightiesHair traits]] with Advertising/SegataSanshiro.
* RapidFireFisticuffs - His Zanretsuken move is a staple of Kyokugenryu Karate.
* RatedMForManly - Not to say Ryo wasn't that manly (Kyokugenryu Karate is a pretty intense martial art) but he was a bit of a pretty boy compared to his father. Marco, however, is about as grizzled and bear as they come (his stage even takes place out in the woods in his private training retreat, surrounded by wildlife; it's not hard to imagine him toughening up by punching trees shirtless). Also when he wins he bursts out of his gi top with his rippling muscles, [[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar Kenshiro-style]].
* RealMenWearPink - [[AllThereInTheManual His profile specifically mentions]] a tendency to cry while reading Disney picture books.
** One of his alternate color schemes has him wearing bright green shirt and pink pants.
* ScaryBlackMan - Although he's a good dude.
* {{Shotoclone}} - Has a projectile and jumping uppercut, with the HurricaneKick being replaced by the standard Kyokugenryu Hien Shippuu Kyaku (plus his own variation where he travels up instead of forward).
* SoulBrotha - Looks a lot like someone who would have starred in a UsefulNotes/{{Blaxploitation}} karate flick of TheSeventies (like Jim Kelly in ''Film/BlackBeltJones''), complete with beard, era-appropriate hairdo, and sideburns.
* TallDarkAndHandsome: At 6'0".
* UnfortunateName - [[DubNameChange Take a wild guess.]]

[[folder: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.


* [[RedOniBlueOni Blue Oni]] - To Jae Hoon's red.
* BrilliantButLazy[=/=]CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass - He sure looks like a goofball but don't get him started...
* CasanovaWannabe
* EmbarrassingFirstName - [[UnfortunateNames We'll let you figure it out for yourselves.]]
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: Foolish sibling to Jae Hoon's responsible one.
* HardWorkHardlyWorks - Slacks off constantly yet remains a legitimate rival for his brother.
* LightningFireJuxtaposition - The lightning to Jae Hoon's fire.
* MeaningfulName - Don Juan
* MulticoloredHair - Light-brown and black.
* PerfectlyCromulentWord - Made up a bunch of imaginary words and phrases on a whim, mostly from playing video games with his bro. One of them ("pompe") is actually a word... it just happens to be one from [[BilingualBonus French and Italian vocabulary]].
* PrettyBoy
* {{Retcon}} - Young Dong Hwan in the anime is actually [[ShrinkingViolet more shy]] than Jae Hoon. In ''Garou'', he's the more outgoing and slacker son. Then again, Dong Hwan ''was'' a little child in the anime; he could have just grown out of his shell sooner than his brother did.
* ShockAndAwe
* TheSlacker
* TechnicianVsPerformer - The Performer, since he prefers to do Tae Kwon Do for his own amusement rather than the discipline his brother exudes. Still presents a formidable challenge in spite of it.

[[folder: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.


* BattleCouple - Him and his ActionGirlfriend Sausu; both are Taekwondokas.
* CheerfulChild - In TheMovie, he was a totally adorable and outgoing little boy. While Dong Hwan started as a tiny ShrinkingViolet in said movie but grew into a cheerful slacker, Jae Hoon became more serious and focused.
* DetectEvil - Inherited his father's "justice sense."
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: Responsible sibling to Dong Hwan's foolish one.
* GenerationXerox - Played straight at first, but Jae's ending has him contemplating on if following his father 100% is the right way to go.
* HotBlooded
* InstantFanClub - Has one. Sausu herself is a part of their ranks.
* JusticeWillPrevail - LikeFatherLikeSon.
* PrettyBoy
* LightningFireJuxtaposition - The fire to Dong Hwan's lightning.
* PlayingWithFire
* [[RedOniBlueOni Red Oni]] - To Dong Hwan's Blue.
* ThisIsUnforgivable - "Evil cannot be forgiven!" ("Aku wa... yurushimasen!")
* TechnicianVsPerformer - The Technician, as he retains a strict sense of dedication and pride in his form compared to Dong Hwan's lazy, natural talent.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

[[folder: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 [[SocialDarwinist survival of the fittest]]. Their bond is so strong, he took a gunshot for Kain in one assassination attempt. [[SecretStabWound Despite this wound]], he's still one of the most powerful people to face against in the tournament.


* BadassCape - Look at it. ''Look at it''.
* BloodBrothers - He's sworn an oath of eternal allegiance with Kain, as seen in a special intro pose.
* BringIt - "Now show me your awesome power... show me all you have."
* CoolMask
* DealWithTheDevil - Gained the sinister power of "Ankoku Karate" through a pact with an unidentified entity.
* DeathSeeker - To a degree. Due to his [[SecretStabWound bullet wound]], Grant lives every day as if it were his last and wouldn't mind the prospect of dying in the heat of battle, as long as Kain can live on to fulfill their dreams.
* TheDragon - To Kain R. Heinlein.
* HandicappedBadass: He's got a bullet wound, he will destroy you with his fists anyways.
* HeterosexualLifePartners - With Kain.
* IHaveManyNames - Real name Abel Cameron, usually known as Grant, also goes by the title "Martyr of Might."
* KnightTemplar - Wholeheartedly supports Kain's plan to build a better Southtown through survival of the fittest cullings.
* LightningBruiser
* ParentalSubstitute - In Kain's youth, Grant served as his father figure.
* SelfInflictedHell - An interesting detail: he hates hot places, but chooses to fight in a flame-filled underground chamber.
* [[SecretStabWound Secret Bullet Wound]] - Hides an injury he received protecting Kain, a bullet which is ''still lodged in his chest''.
* SNKBoss - Very powerful, yet is playable by using a code.
* SpiritedCompetitor
* TrademarkFavoriteFood - Beef stew.
* UndyingLoyalty - To Kain.
* WalkingShirtlessScene

[[folder: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 [[EvilPowerVacuum 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.


* AntiVillain (The Noble variant)
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking - Though he's more balanced than his right hand man was, he has one deadly trick up his sleeve - when fighting him in arcade mode winning the first round leads to his T.O.P bar extending to ''his entire lifebar'' afterward/
* BadassInANiceSuit
* BadassLongcoat
* BarbarianLongHair
* BloodBrothers - He's sworn an oath of eternal allegiance with Grant, as seen in a special intro pose.
* CreepyCoolCrosses - One of his win poses has one of these, made out of his blue flames, form behind Kain.
* DarkMessiah - Kain's motive is to build a better Southtown through trial, conflict and violence.
* GratuitousGerman - His moveset is completely written (and for the most part, [[CallingYourAttacks shouted]]) in German, with attacks like Schwarze Flamme and Schwarze Panzer leading to [[{{Mondegreen}} humorous misunderstandings]] like "Shirt Flake!" and "Shirt Hunter!"
* HeterosexualLifePartners - Him and Grant.
* LoveMakesYouEvil - [[spoiler:His sister Marie's death]] was his StartOfDarkness.
* [[spoiler:LukeIAmYourFather - Is Marie Howard's younger brother, thus making him Rock's [[EvilUncle uncle]].]]
* ManOfWealthAndTaste
* MisanthropeSupreme - Looks down upon anyone who isn't a fighter.
* TheManBehindTheMan
* MyRulesAreNotYourRules - Aside from the T.O.P. bar thing above, Kain is a charge input fighter (as in holding backward then tapping forward to use a special, a la Guile). Kain somehow doesn't seem to care while fighting you, as he can use said attacks ''while walking towards you''. Being a SNKBoss, this is ''entirely'' intentional.
** Adding to this, his moves have incredible priority, which are usually balanced out with the charging style, but since TheComputerIsACheatingBastard...
** Invoked in-game with the winquote against Kevin Rian: "Your justice and mine... You'll never understand..."
* MysteriousMiddleInitial - Could be Robert, considering [[Creator/RobertAHeinlein his partial namesake]].
* PlayingWithFire - Wields [[TechnicolorFire blue flames]] (purple in-game) similar to those of the Orochi.
* ShoutOut - Kain's name is a homage to novelist Creator/RobertAHeinlein. His first name also brings [[CainAndAbel two brothers to mind]] although he and Grant get on well.
** [[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar Shin]], is that you?
* SNKBoss - Is playable by using a code (except in the AES version where he and Grant are immediately selectable,) but is harder to control than Grant, since many of his moves are charge attacks.
* SocialDarwinist
* TrademarkFavoriteFood - Apple pie!
* TrueFinalBoss - You can only fight him (and get an ending) by meeting certain conditions.
* VillainousFriendship - Type I with Grant. Whereas the true extent of Geese and Billy's relationship has always been a bit hazy from Geese's side, Kain and Grant truly have each other's back through thick and thin.
* WarriorTherapist - Many of his win quotes [[BreakingSpeech pick at his opponent's motivations]].
* WeCanRuleTogether - To Rock Howard at the end of Rock's ending. Surprisingly enough, Rock takes the deal [[spoiler:since Kain's sister Marie was Rock's mother]].
* WickedCultured

!''Fatal Fury: First Contact''

[[folder:Lao - ''USA'']]
->A strong yet sluggish man who isn't exactly the sharpest knife when it comes to thinking.

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

!Anime specials and The Motion Picture

[[folder:Jeff Bogard - ''USA'']]
->'''Voiced by:''' [[note]]Creator/UnshoIshizuka (Japanese), Creator/ToshiyukiMorikawa (Japanese, ''Animation/TheKingOfFightersDestiny''), Creator/DavidKaye (English)[[/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 DrivenByEnvy 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...

* DeceasedParentsAreTheBest: Terry, despite all his own badassery, feels that he'll never ever surpass his dear father.
* DiedInYourArmsTonight: Young Terry's, as shown in the intro for ''Wild Ambition''.
* DisappearedDad: Terry and Andy's.
* FriendToAllChildren: His first and only scene in the anime specials has him interacting with a bunch of local children before everything goes to Hell.
* ItsASmallWorldAfterAll: Has a history with Takuma Sakazaki from ''VideoGame/ArtOfFighting'', though it's only referenced sparingly in ''[[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters KOF]]''.
* PapaWolf: To Terry and Andy.

[[folder:Lily [=McGuire=] ]]
->'''Voiced by:''' [[note]]Creator/KikukoInoue[[/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 FemmeFatale who is a part of Geese's entourage. Deep down, though, still feels guilty for the part she took in the aforementioned tragedy.

* BirdsOfAFeather: 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.
* BreakTheCutie: Oh God, does she get broken...
* BrokenBird: Her self-worth never was very good, but after the tragic incident it took a massive nosedive.
* TheCameo: In ''The King of Fighters '94'', she can be seen among the crowd (and alongside Geese) in the Mexico stage.
* DecoyDamsel: 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.
* [[spoiler:DestinationDefenestration: 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...]]
* FailureKnight
* FemmeFatale
* FriendToAllChildren: We see that she's not TheVamp when Terry catches her giving food, money and affection to the local street children.
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl[=/=]TheTease: 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.
* HighHeelFaceTurn
** LoveRedeems
** [[spoiler:RedemptionEqualsDeath]]
* HookerWithAHeartOfGold: More implied than anything. She's very beautiful, curvy, nicknamed the "Queen of South Town", first wears [[WomanInWhite a white dress]] with [[AbsoluteCleavage 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, "TheMistress" or "HighClassCallGirl" is never directly uttered.
* InnocentFlowerGirl: Cruelly subverted, as Geese forces little!Lily to pose as one so she can distract Jeff and he can kill him.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: [[spoiler:In one of her and Terry's spirit talks, she explicitly tells him to stop grieving for her.]]
* KillTheCutie
* PimpedOutDress: Both of the dresses she wears in the anime.
* SheIsAllGrownUp: In her first scene she's an adorable little girl. Flash-forward to ten years later, and she returns as a total babe.
* SpiritAdvisor: [[spoiler:Assumes this role for Terry after her death.]]
* SilkHidingSteel: She's soft-spoken and emotionally broken, but she won't let her few loved ones get hurt.
* StuffedIntoTheFridge: [[spoiler:Poor, ''poor'' Lily.]]
* TheTragicRose: Her life is an almost unending parade of tragedies, and as said above in her first scene tosses [[SomethingAboutARose 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. [[spoiler:They never get to spend their night together, as right after her HighHeelFaceTurn, she's killed by her boss Geese.]]
* WomanInWhite: Was wearing a white dress in her first apparition as an adult.

->'''Voiced by:''' [[note]]Creator/MasamiKikuchi[[/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...

* CuteBruiser: 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).
* FieryRedhead
* HeroWorshipper: Idolizes [[BigBrotherMentor Terry]], which leads to a subversion when Terry goes through his drunken HeroicBSOD.

* HealingHands - Her powers.
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice]]

->Kim's beautiful, serious and kind wife.

* PluckyGirl
* ProperLady: Beautiful, polite, soft-spoken but not an ExtremeDoormat, and extremely coolheaded when push comes to shove.
* ShesGotLegs: She's actually introduced [[MaleGaze legs first]]. (That one's justified as that particular take also included Jae Hoon, who's a very short child back then.)
* ThisIsSomethingHesGotToDoHimself: When Kim is being trounced by [[spoiler:Cyber Cheng]], Joe gets pissed off and decides to help; however, Terry asks Joe to not intervene because doing so would crush the faith of Myeng Swuk and (most importantly) Kim's sons. Cue to a shot of Myeng Swuk staring at her husband's fight and holding her scared kids comfortingly, [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome completely focused on staying calm and on trusting Kim no matter what.]]

->'''Voiced by:''' [[note]]Creator/KenjiUtsumi[[/note]]

->One of Laocorn's three retainers. An honorable and powerful man who happens to be on the wrong side and unable to leave.

* AntiVillain ([[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Noble Anti-Villain]]): Follows Laocorn out of loyalty and honor, cares for Sulia greatly.
* BulletCatch: With two fingers. And he can throw it back with enough force to kill a man.
* TheDragon: To Laocorn, although he shares the role with Panni and Hauer.
* GracefulLoser: When he realizes he and Terry are evenly matched and that the colliding power from their attacks would kill them both, he drops his guard and takes the hit so Terry can go on and save Sulia.
* MyMasterRightOrWrong: Utterly loyal to the Gaudeamus family.
* LightningBruiser: When Terry first clashes with him, Jamin is shown to have the [[SuperSpeed upper hand in the speed department]]. Terry also notes that he's as strong as Krauser, a foe whom he ''barely'' defeated.
* NobleDemon
* PlayingWithFire
* SpiritedCompetitor
