nihongo|Tung Fu Rue|タン・フー・ルー|Tan Fū Rū is a character who debuted in the fighting game "Fatal Fury". He is a master of the "Hakkyokuseiken" and instructed Geese Howard and Jeff Bogard, Terry and Andy's father. The legendary master of "Hakkyokuseiken", Tung Fu Rue was the former master of both the noble Jeff Bogard and the power hungry Geese Howard after he retired as a fighter himself. In the original "Fatal Fury", when Tung took a lot of damage, he would 'buff up' & become muscular. He would then be able to perform his "Senpu Gou-ken" move (his super move in "Fatal Fury Special" and later game). In "Fatal Fury Special", Tung would have a giant spirit appear when he does some of his special moves and in his super move. Also in "Special", Tung is capable of dodging many attacks by simply standing still... he is about half as tall as most of the characters, and a good number of attacks go right over his head. Even a few special moves will completely miss, for example Wolfgang Krauser (the boss) cannot hit Tung with his "High Blitz Ball" unless Tung is jumping. In "Real Bout Special" and "Real Bout 2", Tung would 'buff up' into a giant when doing some of his special moves and when he did his supers.

nihongo|Duck King|ダック・キング|Dakku Kingu is a character from both the "Fatal Fury" and "King of Fighters" series. He appears as a playable character in "Fatal Fury Special" and "King of Fighters XI", and makes a cameo appearance as a striker (a character that hops on-screen to perform a one-time attack) in "King of Fighters 2000". A South Town native, Duck King grew up in an impoverished family in the city’s ghetto. It was in this poor district where he would take interest in fighting and even a greater interest in music and, even more so, dance. He spent a great deal of time with breakdancing and the B-boy culture so much so that it became a part of his life. Duck King began to go to frequent nightclubs as his dancing skills vastly improved. His overwhelming and thrilling antics on the dance floor worked its way into a fighting style of Duck King’s own design. Using his fighting style to confuse other fighters in the ghetto’s West Subway, Duck King started to create a reputation with the fighters in South Town. When news of Geese Howard’s "King of Fighters" tournament broke, an excited Duck King jumped at the chance to enter. While being an odds on favorite, Duck King was manhandled by the "Lonely Wolves" (consisting of Terry Bogard, Andy Bogard and Joe Higashi), more specifically, Terry (as Duck King hates his Rising Tackle).

After his loss, Duck King went back to the ghetto to develop his fighting style to flow with the rhythm of battle. Around this time he met up with the bouncer, King and the two pulled together enough money to start a massive bar in South Town called "Illusions." Here King’s King of Fighters tournament matches were hosted with Duck King acting as the DJ for the bar. During the events of "Fatal Fury 3" and "Real Bout Fatal Fury", Duck was invited to Richard Meyer’s new night club, the Pao Pao Café 2. The grand opening was spoiled by the Jin twins Chonrei and Chonshu who wrecked the café. They sought the "Jin Scrolls" which were stolen from them. These scrolls eventually end up in the hands of Geese Howard, who was once thought dead. As the Bogard brothers, Joe Higashi, and other allies banded together to stop Geese, Duck King unexpectedly joins the fight. When Geese dies in battle with Terry, Duck King parties at the rebuilt Pao Pao Café 2 taking a much needed rest from fighting.

During "King of Fighters XI", he is part of the "Fatal Fury" team composed of Terry Bogard and Kim Kaphwan. He is invited by Terry; but it took him, Choi, and Chang to convince Kim to join the team.

nihongo|Richard Meyer|リチャード・マイヤー|Richādo Maiyā is a character from the "Fatal Fury" series. Originally from Brazil, Richard is a Capoeira master who used his skills to entertain the nightclub crowds. In fact, he is the first fighting game character to use Capoeira. While he had fun entertaining the masses and loved the recognition for it, he felt he had to move on. Moving to the United States, Richard made his home in South Town. It was here he opened the "Pao Pao Café", a nightclub reminiscent to those of his native Brazil. Unlike the bars in South Town, Richard would not tolerate any discord caused by criminals and thugs in his club, literally kicking them out if they do.

When Geese Howard held the "King of Fighters" tournament, Richard entered to promote the Pao Pao Café. While he accomplished this goal and beat several fighters in the process, he was beaten by the "Lonely Wolves" (the Bogard brothers, Terry and Andy, and Muay Thai champ Joe Higashi). Richard was a good sport about losing and the Pao Pao Café became South Town’s ideal nightclub spot. The club also became a hot spot among fighters where they can spar against one another or just hang out. This was evident when another King of Fighters tournament was held by Wolfgang Krauser and all the fights were shown live in the café. The profits from that venture were so high, combine with the club’s ongoing popularity, that Richard had enough money to build a second Pao Pao Café in South Town. During the grand opening of Pao Pao Café 2, with his Capoeira student, Bob Wilson, acting as the manager, the place was wrecked by the Jin twins, Chonshu and Chonrei. As Bob went after the Jin twins for what they had done, Richard stayed to rebuild the second Pao Pao. After he rebuilds the club, he gives it to Bob, who Richard felt was worthy of full ownership because of his impressive skills. Richard has now devoted his time to entreating the masses and garnering attention for both Pao Pao Cafés. He has made many friends in the fighting community ever since. While Bob usually does the fighting, Richard will throw down once more if challenged.

nihongo|Michael Max|マイケル・マックス|Maikeru Makkusu is a character from the "Fatal Fury" series. Born in the slums, Michael Max became a talented heavyweight boxer. He attempted to be the greatest in the sport, but corrupted his own career when he was enticed with money and women. Falling from grace and into misery, Michael headed to South Town and using his hatred and frustration for the situation to fuel him and his constant battling of Southown thugs, Michael constantly trained to recapture what he had. He entered the "King of Fighters" tournament held by Geese Howard believing his powerful fists and grueling training will help him win. Sadly, all his training was rendered sub par by the "Lonely Wolves" (Terry Bogard, his brother Andy and Muay Thai champ Joe Higashi) and he was easily beaten.

nihongo|Hwa Jai|ホア・ジャイ|Hoa Jai is a character from the "Fatal Fury" series. Hwa Jai is a mighty Muay Thai fighter who resided in the callous Thailand jungle since birth. There he trained for most of his life to survive the jungle’s various dangers and to become a hero to his countrymen. While he was one of Thailand’s best fighters, Hwa Jai would never become world champion. In various Muay Thai tournaments, he was bested by the overconfident yet superiorly trained, Joe Higashi. The two became fierce rivals with Joe always being the victor. This prompted Hwa Jai to start cheating by drinking a strange fluid that boosted his physical attributes exponentially. Worrying he would have been found out, Hwa Jai moved to South Town, where many fighters reside and none would care about him using the drink. Entering Geese Howard’s "King of Fighters" tournament, Hwa Jai sought his vengeance against Joe. He faced off against his arrogant nemesis once more resulting in, despite his training and his drink’s power boost, Joe coming out the winner.

Shamed, Hwa Jai returned to the Thai jungle once more. Hwa Jai now lives a normal life training Muay Thai to those who, like he previously, strive to be the best. Eventually Hwa Jai’s rivalry with Joe ended with the two being sparring partners, and even friends, after Joe avenges him from Wolfgang Krauser, who left Hwa Jai in the hospital before the second tournament.cite web | author=RyuWatase | title=Ending for "Fatal Fury 2"-Joe(Neo Geo) | url=http://www.vgmuseum.com/end/neogeo/c/fat2joe.htm | work= [http://www.vgmuseum.com/ The Video Game Museum] | accessmonthday=February 27 | accessyear=2008]

nihongo|Raiden|ライデン|Raiden is a character from the "Fatal Fury" series.

nihongo|Jubei Yamada|山田 十平衛|"Yamada Jūbee" is a character from "Fatal Fury 2" and "Fatal Fury Special". In the past, Jubei Yamada was such a fierce Judo warrior, that his prowess and skill that he released in his matches earned him the nickname of "The Demon". Now he is a giddy old man who passes his time eating cookies and taking care of his dojo, where he looks over the progress of his many students, Jubei has resorted to a more peaceful life. Having chosen to live away from the ways of fighting, Jubei rested in his dojo, with not too much effort spent. He spends his time with his old friend and rival Hanzo Shiranui, a Ninjitsu master and well trained in the ways of Koppo-ken. Hanzo had been training his granddaughter Mai in the Shiranui Ninjitsu style, but when he was approached by a young American boy called Andy Bogard who wanted to learn the Koppo-ken art, Hanzo left Mai to complete her training with Jubei. Jubei realized that Andy had a lot of potential to become a superb fighter.

Even though his golden age has long been gone, Jubei refuses to sit back in a bed and wait for his death. Jubei likes to be where the action is, and always tries to live his remaining days as a youngster. Revived by the passion of other young fighters as Andy and Mai, Jubei takes a cue, and always takes to the fighting arena every now and then.

nihongo|Cheng Sinzan|チン・シンザン|Chin Shinzan|Chinese: 陳 秦山; Pinyin: Chén Qín-Shān; Cantonese Yale: Chàhn Chèuhn-Sāan is a character from the "Fatal Fury" series. Although his intentions are not really evil, Cheng's incredible amount of greed and hunger for money blinds him from more important matters. Only interested in becoming a rich man at any cost, Cheng usually overlooks many situations, in such a manner that when he tries to find out what's going on, he usually finds himself in big trouble. Nevertheless, the ambition of Cheng could be as big as his own stomach. Cheng has made appearances as a playable character in "Fatal Fury 2", "Fatal Fury Special", "Real Bout Fatal Fury Special", "Real Bout Fatal Fury 2: The Newcomers", and "Real Bout Fatal Fury Special: Dominated Mind".

Ever since he can remember, Cheng has always fought his way to become a man with a higher social status. The man who had money was the man who would be respected, and with that basis in mind, Cheng began to slither his way up the social ladder, via many dirty management tricks and betrayal. However, he also knew that this sort of actions would gain him many enemies who would try to finish him off at the slightest chance. Being a man of wide dimensions, the idea of becoming a prominent martial artist escaped anyone's mind. But Cheng made it in the end, by training himself in the unpredictable art of Tai Chi Ken, which allowed him to channel his inner energy and launch as actual chi blasts. Cheng also used his own weight to his advantage, as he was capable of lunging himself like a ball all around the place, and once he got going, he would be hard to contain. After establishing many business spots and shopping locals using his "influences", Cheng's ambition grew stronger. He felt that with his money and with his overwhelming strength, he could topple anyone.

Suddenly, the news that the renowned German nobleman, Wolfgang Krauser, has organized a new worldwide tournament using the name of a small local competition called "King of Fighters", and that he was seeking only the best. Aside from proving himself to be a distinguished fighter, Cheng realized he could win a lot of money from the prize cash, or he could raid Krauser's massive heritage fortune as well. Unfortunately for his reputation, Cheng didn't make it so far into the tournament, but he managed to sponsor many of his fights via his dirty money, so the broadcast of his fights earned the fat businessman a decent amount of earnings. Although he didn't gain enough money as he would have wished, something is better than nothing, so Cheng sits back and relaxes, knowing he has gained enough with not so much effort.

nihongo|Axel Hawk|アクセル・ホーク|Akuseru Hōku is a character introduced in Fatal Fury 2. A former heavyweight boxing champion who shows no remorse towards any opponent in the ring, Axel is considered to be brutal to those who fight against him and that the unlucky opponents find themselves heading straight to the hospital right after a fight with this tough contender.

As a young man growing up in the harshness of South Town, Axel realized that the only way to survive was to get stronger and show no mercy to anyone who got in his way. Upon realizing that his tough fists would get him anywhere in the world, Axel decided to take up boxing in his spare time and that he began his career as a young boxer, rising up through the ranks of the boxing world while shocking everyone with his tough but sometimes violent behavior against his opponents. Within time, Axel had became the heavyweight boxing champion of the world and that he gained many sponsors and fans that wanted to support his rising boxing career, but Axel's glory days as a boxing champion would take an unfortunate turn that was least expected. In time, both the sponsors and the fans saw Axel as nothing more than a one-hit wonder and that they considered him to be less popular to the new young boxers that were coming directly into the circuit. Upon being dropped by his sponsors and losing a lot of money endorsements from within the process, Axel's boxing career had taken a devastating plunge into complete obscurity and that the unexpected ordeal had caused Axel to doubt his own strength, thus shattering any chance of a possible comeback into the boxing world. Just when it seem that Axel's boxing days were over, a mysterious German nobleman named Wolfgang Krauser had approached Axel one day and told him that he was real impressed by his ruthlessness and tough attitude that came from his own fighting spirit. Krauser then offered Axel a deal in which he would help the fallen boxer restore his career if he was to participate in the second "King of Fighters" tournament as a "grandmaster" of the event (along with Billy Kane and Laurence Blood). Realizing that he could take his frustrations out on any fighter, Axel had agreed with Krauser on the plan and participated in the tournament, attacking and defeating the fighters that came directly to him. Though Axel's fighting spirit was tough, it was nowhere near the strength of Terry Bogard and that the Lone Wolf himself defeated the ruthless boxer with no effort. Though he was defeated, Axel felt that his fighting spirit as a boxer was restored from within the tournament and that he now seeks to continue his career as a boxer, showing everyone that he holds nothing back from within his fights.

nihongo|Laurence Blood|ローレンス・ブラッド|Rōrensu Buraddo is a character from the "Fatal Fury" fighting series. A renowned bull fighter not only in Spain, but in lots of parts in the world, Laurence Blood might be an arrogant and overconfident person who likes to minimize other people's successes, but he can sure back it up, by showing off his amazing skills as a matador, and how he gracefully dodges the charges of bulls, and kills them swiftly in one stroke of his sword. But few people suspect what is behind Laurence's incredible career. Ever since he was little, Laurence's family had had close ties with the Earl of Strolheim, represented by the Krauser family, a very influential lineage in Europe. Having served the Krauser family for generations, the Blood clan has always played the role of faithful followers to the Strolheim lineage. Laurence has not forgotten that vow, and has served the latest successor of the Strolheim heir, Wolfgang Krauser, in exchange that Krauser himself would support Laurence's training as a bull fighter.

The trade faired off quite well, as Krauser had a respected and feared bodyguard in the form of Laurence, and Laurence himself had earned a name for himself in the bull fighting arenas, where he is famous for his gracious moves with his cape, and the fatal swipes of his sword. Always the man who knows how to pay his debts, since he too is of noble heritage, Laurence attends to Krauser's call, when the Emperor of Darkness decides to host the second "King of Fighters" tournament, in hopes of finding the man who had defeated Geese Howard in the first tourney. Laurence was in charge of protecting Strolheim Castle while Krauser was out trashing worthy opponents to prove his might. But Laurence did not count on the power and courage of the "Lonely Wolves", who had already demonstrated their amazing prowess by defeating Geese the last year. Although Laurence was a formidable opponent, being both quick and deadly, he ultimately fell to the strength of the lonesome trio, and had to act as a faraway witness to his lord's fall. After Krauser's defeat, Laurence vanishes from the bull fighting scene, possibly to serve his master Krauser for all eternity to make up for his incompetence.

nihongo|Bob Wilson|ボブ・ウィルソン|Bobu Wiruson is a character introduced in Fatal Fury 3. A cheerful man who loves to combine dancing with his Brazilian style of Capoeira, Bob often seeks to test his skills out against many fighters so that he can learn the benefits and mistakes of his battles.

As a young boy who grew up in his native country of Brazil, Bob was known to always get his inspiration of fighting from his family, who were known to be well-renowed Capoeira fighters. Though the art of Capoeira is considered to be tough to those who are new to it, Bob was determined to be in the same league as his family so that he could make them proud of his rising ability. While training in the jungles one day, Bob had gotten the attention of an older man, who was travling through the same area and saw Bob's attempt at learning some Capoeria moves. The older man had revealed himself to be a local fighter named Richard Meyer and that he was real impressed by Bob's Capoeira skills and techniques. Richard was so impressed that he was willing to take Bob under his wing and help him develop his Capoeira style even more, which caused Bob to accept Richard's offer with no second thought. For the next few years, Bob had trained under Richard's watchful eye and became a strong Capoeira fighter, dominating Brazil's fighting circuit with no problem. When Richard told Bob that he was heading to a city in the United States called South Town in order to open a new restaurant called the "Pao Pao Cafe", Bob had decided to go with him in order to help him out with the development. Though Bob didn't participate in the King of Fighters tournament during the events of the first Fatal Fury game, he still cheered Richard on while continuing to improve his Capoeira skills. At the start of Fatal Fury 3, Richard and Bob were at the grand opening of the "Pao Pao Cafe 2" and that everything was going well. That is until the mysterious Jin twins (Jin Chonrei and Jin Chonshu) came from out of nowhere and attacked Richard and Bob while destroying the restaurant from within the process. While Richard stayed behind to tend to the repairs of the restaurant, Bob had decided to join forces with Terry Bogard and many other fighters in order to stop the Jin twins and Geese Howard from gaining "The Sacred Jin Scrolls of Immortality". Upon learning of Geese's defeat and the reformation of the Jin twins, Bob was real happy to learn that everything had worked out and in the process... was shocked to learn from Richard that he was given full ownership of the "Pao Pao Cafe 2". Though he's now the owner of a popular restaurant, Bob is still a fighter at heart and will always fight when given the chance to do so.

nihongo|Sokaku Mochizuki|望月 双角|Mochizuki Sōkaku is a character introduced in Fatal Fury 3. The ancestors of Sokaku have been known throughout history as people with the ability to summon wandering spirits from the netherworld and use them against evil demons who raise their ugly head in the world of the humans. Their main task is to seal away any possible threat to this world that might come from another realm. As an heir to this tradition, Sokaku has devoted himself to his training, preparing himself both physically and mentally for the time his services might be needed.

Having been secluded in a Buddhist temple for a long time, Sokaku knows little of the outer world. He only travels when the forces of evil grows strong in the mortal coil. Always wandering with his huge straw hat, his Buddhist prayer beads, and his purification staff, Sokaku seeks and vanquishes any evil spirit who might be causing trouble. Not without his share of trouble, Sokaku has engaged himself in a personal war with the Shiranui ninjitsu clan, a rivalry that has been raging on for centuries even. It is said that the Shiranui ninjas differ with the unnatural powers of the Mochizuki clan, and consider it dangerous to possess. Sokaku himself has faced the past leader of the Shiranui ninja clan, Hanzo Shiranui, several times, with mixed results, no match ever defining a clear winner. Now that Hanzo has died, Sokaku keeps a close eye on Hanzo's granddaughter, Mai Shiranui, so she may not interfere with his job. A bad omen had haunted Sokaku lately, and it became evident to him that an evil force was at work again. This time, the demons of the Jin family began to surge again, embodied in a malevolent plan: the two children that are the descendants of the Jin would use the Scrolls of Immortality to attain eternal life and the possibility to control the world forever. Sensing that the balance of good and evil was about to be shifted, Sokaku travels to South Town, current location of the Jins in the United States, in hopes of dealing with the ominous force at work behind the curtains. When Sokaku arrived, he noticed that other warriors were at work to stop the Jins themselves. Among them, were the legendary trio known as the "Lonely Wolves". Sokaku sensed a powerful aura of justice in their souls. He also noticed that Mai was helping them out. Working on his account, Sokaku managed to scavenge enough information, but when he was about to resolve himself in facing the Jin twins head-on, a new enemy appeared in the fray: it was Geese Howard, the greatest mob leader in South Town, who had escaped certain death, and was now in possession of the scrolls. This unexpected plot twist made Sokaku lose perception of the danger of the Jins, and instead dedicated himself to finding Geese and to retrieve the Scrolls of Immortality, to avoid the improper use of the legendary documents.

After hearing the news of Geese's death, Sokaku thinks that the Jins would go back in using the Scrolls of Immortality for their evil purposes. But to everyone's surprise, Chonrei himself tears up the scrolls, forever banning the curse from the Jin family. Sokaku feels relieved about the decision of the Jin twins, and after burning up the shattered remains of the scrolls, Sokaku travels back to Japan, where he now dedicates himself to training the next generation of Mochizuki sorcerers in case a new evil force threatens the world.

nihongo|Ryuji Yamazaki|山崎 竜二|Yamazaki Ryūji is a video game character from both the "Fatal Fury" and "King of Fighters" series. In Gamest's 1997 Heroes Collection, Yamazaki was voted as the staff's fifteenth favorite character. He shared the spot with "Samurai Shodown" character, Galford, and "Street Fighter" character, Ken.Cite book | year=1997 | editor=Gamest | title=Gamest Game Hero Collection 1997; issue 208 | pages=240 | language=Japanese | publisher=Shinseisha ]

In contrast with most of the other fighters in combat video games, Yamazaki does not use any particular martial art - he is a self-taught brawler, and uses a wide variety of attacks in his fighting, including unfair and dishonest moves such as kicking sand in his opponent's eyes, and his ever-present knife. He also rarely takes his right hand out of his pocket unless he is using his knife. Yamazaki never had parents to look up to when he was growing up, so he quickly fell in with the wrong crowd at a young age. Eventually, after years of petty crime, he fell under the tutelage of a crime boss, where he soon climbed the ranks of crime until he became the boss's right-hand man. One day, Yamazaki and his boss went to a warehouse where an illegal deal was taking place. Yamazaki felt that something wasn't quite right with the situation, and told his boss so. The boss laughed Yamazaki's feeling off and ordered him to stay with him. Unfortunately, the deal was a setup, and both Yamazaki and his boss were ambushed by rival criminals. Yamazaki's boss was killed, and seeing the only "parent" that he ever had die before his eyes drove Yamazaki to insanity. He is now completely psychotic and is extremely mentally unbalanced. In 1995, Yamazaki was signed up by Jin Chonrei and Jin Chonshu to protect them and the scrolls of immortality.

In the "King of Fighters" series, as he was having fun at a local dojo, Yamazaki was faced by an Englishman named Billy Kane, who worked as the bodyguard of Geese Howard, main crime leader of South Town. Yamazaki refused Billy's offer to join him and participate in the 1997 edition of the "King of Fighters" tournament at first, but after terribly mauling one of the warriors, he felt an adrenaline rush through his blood. Feeling a need to fight and kill, he accepted Billy's offer. During the events of the tournament, it is revealed that Yamazaki, too, is one of the eight heralds of Orochi, and the urge that pulled him towards the tournament is the power resulting of Orochi's imminent resurfacing. During the subsequent tournaments, Yamazaki did not enter, and its unknown what he did during this time. He finally returns in the "2003" tournament to participate with Billy and Gato to engage on another of Geese's attempts to take over South Town. At the end of the tournament, tensions between the team members increase somewhat, and culminate in a fight. Gato, disgusted with his team members (whom he is obviously not friends with), simply takes his leave and reappears in the follow-up title KOF XI. However, Billy and Yamazaki continue to fight each other, and neither made an appearance in KOF XI.

Jin Chonrei (秦 崇雷, Japanese: "Jin Chonrei", Pinyin: "Qín Chónglei") is a character from the "Fatal Fury" series and who also makes an appearance in "Neo Geo Battle Coliseum". Chonrei first appeared as the final secret boss in "Fatal Fury 3", following Ryuji Yamazaki and his brother Jin Chonshu. In Gamest's 1997 Heroes Collection, Jin was voted as the staff's thirty-ninth favorite character. He shared the spot with four other characters, including "Fatal Fury" character, Joe Higashi, and "Street Fighter" character, Zangief.Cite book | year=1997 | editor=Gamest | title=Gamest Game Hero Collection 1997; issue 208 | pages=1 | language=Japanese | publisher=Shinseisha ]

Chonrei is one of the two "Jin Brothers" who search for an item stolen from them, the "Jin Scrolls" or "Scrolls of Immortality". They know the scrolls are in South Town, and send "Ryuji Yamazaki" to search the city, however several other characters are also searching the scrolls for different reasons. If the player did well throughout the course of the game, then after defeating his younger brother Chonshu, "Chonrei" appears and becomes extremely angry, promising that the player would not leave the place alive. Regardless of whether or not Chonrei was reached, the player's character's ending would play afterwards. After the events of "Fatal Fury 3", Geese Howard escapes with the Jin Scrolls and tries to attain immortality with them. The fighters of South Town seek to stop him, and Terry Bogard manages to reach him at his infamous tower. The eternal enemies fight. As they do so, Chonshu and Chonrei sneak towards the "Jin Scrolls". After Terry defeats Geese, he is too late to stop the "Jin Brothers" from reaching the Scrolls. However, in a surprising turn of events, "Chonrei" tears up the scrolls despite Chonshu's protestation. Chonrei explains to Chonshu that it is better for them to live normal lives as kids rather than continue their cursed existence as immortals. Chonshu eventually agrees, and both of them leave.

Jin Chonshu (秦 崇秀, Japanese: "Jin Chonshū", Pinyin: "Qín Chóngxiù") is a character from the "Fatal Fury" series and who also makes an appearance in "Neo Geo Battle Coliseum". Chonshu first appeared as one of three bosses in "Fatal Fury 3", supposedly appearing to be the last boss following Ryuji Yamazaki. In actuality, he was not the real last boss. If the player performed well, Chonshu's brother Chonrei would be fought as the true last boss afterwards. If the player did not do well throughout the course of the game, then the player's character would fight Chonshu in one of the first two stages. Otherwise, Chonshu would fight in the third stage. After defeating Chonshu, his older brother "Jin Chonrei" appears, and becomes extremely angry. Regardless of whether or not Chonrei was reached, the player's character's ending would play afterwards.

Li Xiangfei (Chinese: 李 香緋; Pinyin: "Lǐ Xiāngfēi"; Japanese: 李 香緋 "Rii Shanfei") is a character from both the "Fatal Fury" and "King of Fighters" series. Being of Chinese heritage, but born and raised in South Town, Xiangfei grew up with vast knowledge of the several Chinese martial arts, and as she became a quick and lethal fighter, her extensive training soon paid off. Xiangfei entered the battle arenas of South Town, where she met true South Town legends: Koppoken master Andy Bogard, Muay Thai champion Joe Higashi and, finally, the "Hungry Wolf" himself, Terry Bogard.

In the "King of Fighters" series, having grown up with an intense admiration for such heroes, Xiangfei felt honored to compete with them. She soon knew about the entry of the "Lone Wolves" in the "King of Fighters" tournament, and decided to follow them and fight with them again. She tried to enter, but her Grandfather, Pai opposed it. During a normal evening of work at the Chinese restaurant where she lent her services as a part-time waitress and bodyguard, Xiangfei attended the table of a young woman who seemed like she was a martial artist. The woman seemed dead hungry, and with no reservations, she ordered a lot of food. But soon it was obvious that the girl did not have enough money to pay for such a large meal. A furious Xiangfei demanded her payment, and both soon engaged in a ferocious battle. Her theories were right: the young woman was a fighter herself. The fight was at all its rage, when suddenly, she was approached by Blue Mary, who proposed that Xiangfei enter, having seen her fights in South Town.cite web | author=SNK Playmore | url=http://kofaniv.snkplaymore.co.jp/english/history/kof99_story/index.php?num=women | title=Woman Fighters Team Story in KOF '99| work= [http://kofaniv.snkplaymore.co.jp/english/index.html King of Fighters 10th Anniversary Official Website] | accessmonthday= February 27 | accessyear=2008]

Upon her promise to get enough food to feed her face, Xiangfei joined along with King, Blue Mary Ryan and Kasumi Todoh (the woman who had been unable to pay) to form the new all-female team. Having missed out on the 2000 "King of Fighters" tournament after being too late for the registrations, Xiangfei promised she would not be left out this time. In 2001, she teamed up with King, Mai Shiranui, and the sumo fighter Hinako Shijou. She replaced Yuri Sakazaki who left for the Art of Fighting team to comfort Robert Garcia.cite web | author=SNK Playmore | url=http://kofaniv.snkplaymore.co.jp/english/history/kof2001_story/index.php?num=women | title=Woman Fighters Team Story in KOF 2001| work= [http://kofaniv.snkplaymore.co.jp/english/index.html King of Fighters 10th Anniversary Official Website] | accessmonthday= February 27 | accessyear=2008]

nihongo|Rick Strowd|リック・ストラウド|Rikku Sutoraudo is a young Native American light-weight boxer from "Real Bout Fatal Fury" series and appears in RB2: The Newcomers (arcade and console versions), as well as in "Fatal Fury: First Contact" and "Card Fighters Clash", both for Neo-Geo Pocket Color. Rick is one of the new characters of this game, along with Li Xiangfei and Alfred Airhawk. Rick is a member of a Native American tribe that lives in the outskirts of South Town. Rick's people have seen the city of South Town grow from afar, and have never meddled in the city's progress, as they knew that South Town was filled with lots of criminals and evildoers. But this didn't hold back Rick, who far from ignoring the situation, decided to train himself to one day tackle the fighters in South Town head on.

Rick's strength lies not only in his spiritual belief, but also in his fists, which he has trained and built enough to develop a crushing series of blows that would easily take out any opponent in a swift motion. Despite the warnings of his superiors, Rick was not ready to let go the chance of some day fighting the best in South Town. Every now and then, Rick takes a trip into South Town to challenge all those who are willing to face his crazy fists. Inspired by the sense of self-improvement, Rick has slowly earned a name for himself in South Town. He hopes that someday the right opponent will stand against him and challenge his amazing skills in a true fight.

Although rowdy and maybe not too proper, Rick has a heart of honor, and respects the code of the warrior. He gets excited when he faces a worthy opponent, and gets incredibly disappointed when they are weak. Rick doesn't follow the strict code of his tribe to stay away from foreigners, which has allowed him to meet new and interesting people.

nihongo|White|ホワイト|Howaito is a fictional character from fighting game '. He appears there as the rival of Alfred Airhawk. He also appears in the popular card game '. A demented psycho and all-around disturbed fellow, White finds pleasure in making people suffer and follow his every wish. He uses his mind-controlling abilities to make people his personal toys, manipulating them to his desire. White enjoys playing around with those foolish enough to challenge him, using the great amount of power that he possesses. He appears to be based on the main character, Alexander DeLarge from Anthony Burgess's A Clockwork Orange.

Renowned as a dangerous crime lord, White is in control of one of the most dangerous weapon and drug dealing organizations in the world. But White is far beyond any common thug. Despite his bizarre appearance and odd clothing, White has an attribute that makes him the menace that he is: he has incredible psychic powers, that allow him to look into the mind of any person, and be able to manipulate their thoughts to his pleasure. Since the moment that White surged to create his crime syndicate, he has easily thwarted any possible opposition to his rule, and has even made allies out of some of his enemies, thanks to his brainwashing skills. His wrath against society, and the desire to create a new world order, has inspired White to secure strategic locations which his illegal operations can pass through without any sort of danger. One of the places that he made his own base of operations was a small village where a young pilot called Alfred lived. But White, who always aims for higher ambitions, has set his sight on a better prey. For White, his ultimate ambition is to gain complete control of South Town, an industrial city that proves to be more than perfect for his evil plans, since the city has always thrived on criminal activities. White meets his own share of enemies, but most of them quickly surrender to his superior mind power. White seems more than intent on winning South Town over, but a young man, a survivor from White's past conquests, has stepped forward to put an end to White's twisted dreams.

He cannot crouch, jump, dash or block, but his attacks have extreme priority, and his projectile will dizzy the opponent 100% of the time when it connects, even if the target is already dizzied. For his most dangerous attack, White has a final shot when the player defeats him that can only be jumped over or blocked low that he fires from his cane: if it connects, the player is instantly KO'ed and White gets up, winning the round. This becomes exceptionally dangerous if the player is hit by his dizzying projectile as White is knocked out: when they land, they'll be stunned, and take the attack head on.

nihongo|Touji Sakata|坂田 冬次|Sakata Tōji is a character from "Fatal Fury: Wild Ambition". He is an aged man and one of the 2 original characters in this game, along with Tsugumi Sendo. Touji was the rival of Tatsumi Suō (Blue Mary's grandfather and Geese Howard's master).
A prime martial artist in his youth, Touji now spends the remainder of his life strolling down the streets of South Town without a care in the world. Once a jolly and high spirited fighter who had earned a name for himself in the world of fighting with his solid and refined Aikido style, which allowed him to deliver several powerful blows in just a few seconds, Touji is now nothing more than a forgotten old man who is terribly resentful towards the society that once worshipped and admired his feats.

Touji just passes most of his time wandering around the crime infested streets of South Town. Any thug foolish enough to try and mug him would suffer terrible consequences, and probably end up in a hospital for their insolence. However, ever since the appearance of Geese Howard in the fighting scene, Touji's interest has been somewhat moved. It seemed that the challenge of the crime lord had once again reactivated the dormant fighting spirit within him. Touji was fully aware of Geese's legendary Hakkyokuseiken style, since he had faced Tung Fu Rue, Geese's master, several times in the past. Inspired by the new batch of fighters that have appeared to challenge Geese, Touji just might yet revive his old fighting flame, and teach the new generation a thing or two about true battle experience.

A high school student who has entered a student exchange program in South Town, Tsugumi soon finds herself submerged in a town with an unnatural passion for fighting. Although it wasn't precisely the kind of town she expected it to be, filled with crime and evil ambitions, Tsugumi found it to be a great place to practice her wrestling skills that she had learned in Japan. Tsugumi hears the rumors about a new crime lord in town called Geese Howard, and is intrigued by the fact that Geese has defeated several fighters without contest. More so, Tsugumi finds it very interesting about the fact that many different fighters from different schools of martial arts roam the streets in search of a good fight. Tsugumi thinks that her trip to South Town might just leave her something more than just school knowledge.

Some of Tsugumi's move names reference Osaka, like "Tsūtenkaku Driver", "Naniwa Lariat", and "Okonomiyaki-Ire".

In her ending, she passes out amidst the destruction of Kain's mansion after defeating him. Her crew saves her from being trapped under the rubble, but fails to secure any of the treasure they had been looking for.

In "The King of Fighters Maximum Impact 2", her parents are revealed to be incredibly wealthy; she formed the Lillien Knights when she became bored of her tedious lifestyle. Before the start of the tournament, she attends a party in her otherwise occupied parents' place. While there, the son of the host attempts (and fails quite miserably) to impress her with his paltry skills in Savate. Although Jenet is rather repulsed by his arrogance and embarrassing lack of skill, she learns from him that the King of Fighters tournament is being held once again. After her Lillien Knights knock the man unconscious and rob his father, Jenet decides to join the tournament in hopes of winning the prize money.

Heinlein from the crumbling mansion. Gato appears to know the stranger, but he is blinded before he can act. As the mansion falls, the stranger taunts Gato, telling him to start training in order to defeat him. Gato appears to have a vision of his past and his father, and angrily swears vengeance - this insinuates that the stranger is connected to Gato's past (the stranger's outfit appears to resemble Gato's), but nothing has been officially confirmed. Gato also appears in the ending of Hotaru Futaba, who claims that he's her older brother and slaps him when he denies even knowing her. He then leaves her there, and Hotaru silently prays for Gato to come back to her and their father.

Gato first appears in the "King of Fighters" series in "King of Fighters 2003" as part of the Outlaw Team, along with Ryuji Yamazaki and Billy Kane. Gato is summoned to Geese Howard's office and forced to cooperate in order to prevent his sister from being harmed. Gato does not like his team mates at all as revealed by the ending, in which Gato ditches the other two immediately and tells them off, leaving Yamazaki and Billy to fight. In KOF XI he is partnered with Bonne Jenet and Tizoc to form a "Garou" Team. He also immediately leaves them, though on somewhat friendlier terms (he declines their invitation to celebrate).

But Gato was a man who was tormented to become an accomplished martial artist, and was pushed too far by their father. Still, Hotaru knows who the real Gato is, and she is sure that he is not such a bad person at heart.

Gato's disappearance led Hotaru to a hostile city located in the United States: Second South Town, where fighting rules all, crime rules the society, and strength dictates who lives and dies. In this harsh place, Hotaru set out to find clues about her brother. She then heard news of a fighting tournament of epic proportions that would soon occur in Second South Town - "King of Fighters: Maximum Mayhem." Hotaru had a feeling that her brother would enter the tournament, as he was always looking for strong opponents to fight. Following her premonitions, Hotaru entered the tournament as well.

nihongo|Rock Howard|ロック・ハワード|Rokku Hawādo is a character from "" and the "King of Fighters" series. Rock is the son of the most noteworthy crime lord--and most feared fighter--in all of South Town, Geese Howard. Since Geese never acknowledged him, Rock was raised solely by his mother, Marie Heinlein. When Rock was barely eight and a half years old, Marie contracted a fatal disease, and died while in Rock's care. When Geese is defeated by Terry Bogard on top of Geese Tower, he refuses Terry's help and falls to a presumed death. Rock having lost both his parents, is adopted by Terry, who takes him under his wing (it is known that this is Terry's own volition and not Geese's wish).

As the years go by, Rock becomes a formidable fighter, due in no small part to having been trained by Terry and his blood line. Approximately ten years after Geese's death, Second South Town was established. During this time, a new King of Fighters tournament arose dubbed "Maximum Mayhem", which Rock and Terry both decide to join. By the end of the tournament, Rock finds his final opponent is Kain R. Heinlein, who reveals himself to be both the host and Rock's uncle. Upon winning, Rock discovered that the tournament was orchestrated by Kain to bring Rock to him. Kain, aware that Geese Howard's will held presumably valuable secrets but unable to discover them without assistance, won Rock's aid in working through the document by offering information regarding Rock's mother—whom Kain claimed was still alive. Terry accepts Rock's decision to become Kain's new partner, with Rock promising to return.cite web | author=Rey, Kitsune Sniper | title=Ending for 'Garou:Mark of The Wolves"-Rock Good Ending(Neo Geo) | url=http://www.vgmuseum.com/end/neogeo/a/garourock.htm | work= [http://www.vgmuseum.com/ The Video Game Museum] | accessmonthday=February 27 | accessyear=2008]

His move list is an amalgam of his mentor, Terry Bogard, and his father, Geese Howard. He possesses several of Geese's trademark moves such as the "Reppuken", "Double Reppuken", "Raging Storm" DM, the "Shinkunage" throw, reversals, and the "Deadly Rave" SDM. Moves loaned from Terry include the "Rising Tackle", variants of the "Power Dunk" and "Crack Shoot" moves, along with his "Shine Knuckle", which is a DM version of Terry's "Burning Knuckle". In addition, Rock's "Hard Edge" is similar to Geese's "Evil Shadow Smasher". Also, his "Crack Counter" is a reversal that can be directed high or low akin to Geese, where upon succeeding, Rock slams an opponent with a kick that resembles Terry's "Crack Shoot".

In comparison with his father, Rock still lacks the control over his "evil blood", which boils from time to time hurting him after ending a combat with the "Raging Storm" and the "Deadly Rave". Thus, most of moves taken from his father take him more time for recovering or are less powerful. However, the precedent of his lineage states that Rock has not reached the top of his game yet.

Tizoc, otherwise known as nihongo|Griffon Mask|グリフォンマスク|Gurifon Masuku or the Griffon in the Japanese version, is a character from both the "Fatal Fury" and "King of Fighters" series. He started out in the Fatal Fury game "Garou: Mark of the Wolves". By the time of "Garou: Mark Of The Wolves", Tizoc already sees himself as a washed up has-been and enters the tournament in order to gain his passion into going back into the ring. When the events of "King Of Fighters 2003" occur, Tizoc is an up and coming superstar in the professional wrestling circuit and joins the Fatal Fury team after being invited by Terry Bogard himself after his brother Andy becomes unavailable since he is teaching a young boy in Shiranui style Ninjitsu in Japan (the boy would later grow up to be known as Hokutomaru in "Garou").
