    Kazuya - Japan


    Barts - USA

    Lihua - Taiwan

  • Blow You Away: Her Desperation Attack have her create a tornado around her and sucking in the poor sap that is too close.
  • Cool Sword: She uses it mostly in her special moves. It should be noted that she is the only one besides Gekkou to have a weapon.
  • Fingerless Gloves: Just like Barts, she wears these.
  • I Will Find You: Lihua is quite determined to find her missing parents.
  • Lady of War: She is quite the graceful fighter.
  • Mundane Utility: In her scene in the credits, she used her sword to cut some food up when cooking.

    Boggy - USA

    Liza - Brazil

    J. McCoy - USA

  • Action Dad: Has an unnamed son that shows up in his win poses and ending.
  • Boxing Battler: He is the token boxer of this game. Though unlike most examples, he is not restricted to using only his fists in battle.
  • Eagleland - Flavor 1. I mean like at what he is wearing for crying out loud!
  • Extremity Extremist: Averted, even though he's still a boxer.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: Not surprising, considering his fighting style.
  • Shoryuken: Starts with a forward dash.

    Wulong - China

    Gekkou - Japan

  • Adorkable: You wouldn't enter the token ninja to be this but in his win quote against Lihua and Liza, he seems flustered at the thought of beating up a woman and sheepishly apologizes.
  • Fuuma Shuriken: Throws one as a projectile.
  • Highly Visible Ninja: A ninja clad in PURPLE?
  • The Stoic

    Marco - Germany

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: He has purple skin. Justified because of the mutation he had went through.
  • Bandaged Face: His entire face save for one eye is covered in bandages.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Despite his frightening appearance and his victory quote where he threatens his opponent, he is otherwise a nice guy.
  • Dumb Muscle: Maybe it is the effects of the mutation because he doesn't appear to be too bright. In fact, he seems to act like a Manchild. One of his attacks even includes flailing his arms around while crying.
  • Eek, a Mouse!!: In his scene in the credits, he freaked out over a mouse. Let me repeat that. The big, hulking monster got scared of a little mouse.
  • I Am a Monster: His goal in the tournament is to win the money so he could fund a science research to make him human again.
  • Mighty Glacier: He not only slowly and hits hard, his jumps are slow.
  • Rubber Man: To make up for his slow speed, he could stretch his arms out just like Dhalsim.
  • Self-Destruct Mechanism: His ultimate attack though instead of it being mechanical, he is a biological lifeform.
  • Stout Strength: He has a gut on him but it doesn't stop him from laying the beatdown.
  • Taking You with Me: His Desperation Attack where he grabs the opponent and a number count appears over his head. When it reaches zero, Marco explodes, damaging his opponent in the progress. This is subverted when Marco somehow regenerates his body while his opponent is on the ground after taking a lot of damage.
  • Use Your Head: One of his special moves have him take off his head and throw it across the screen.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Sort of. He IS the token grappler of the game, after all. At least the playable grappler in Gonzales' case.

    Gonzales - Russia

    Azteca - Mexico


    General - Unknown

  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Both the general of his army and the single strongest individual in it.
  • Badass Moustache: He has a moustache and yes, he IS a badass.
  • Catch Phrase: "I am a perfect soldier!" Trust me when I say this, you WILL see this quote a lot.
  • Doppleganger Attack: One of his infamous moves is sending out ghostly figures of him around him, making it impossible for the player to even get near him.
  • Evil Laugh: "HUHUHUHUH! HUHUHUHUH!". He'll belt it out every time you challenge him, so get used to this one.
  • Expy: Let's see. A SNK Boss that is dressed like a dictator. M. Bison much? His design is clearly based on the Golan Colonel from Fist of the North Star.
  • Pet the Dog: In Marco's ending, he not only gives Marco the money to fund the science research project but he also helps out with it by giving up Marco a human body for him to have.
  • SNK Boss: Goodness. Observe. This guy is basically the hardest boss throughout all fighting games since its release. For further proof? Even the writers from game magazines gave up to write strategies against him. It took until 2014 until he was finally beaten fairly, here, and even then it was a very narrow win.
  • Teleport Spam: One of the big factors in his difficulty is that he can spam a DBZ-esque teleport like there's no tomorrow. And he knows it, closing every distance by a chokeslam-followed teleport and casually teleporting behind you every time he feels like it.
  • Space Zone: His space station stage. How his opponent managed to get all of the way up there is up to debate.


How well does it match the trope?
