The first iteration of Kung Fu Man, this timeless character came bundled with DOS M.U.G.E.N up until version 2000.06.27, where he was replaced by a more handsome man. Everything about this character is original, including his sprites and sound effects, though with only two buttons, his moveset is particularly barren and his gameplay is incredibly simple; regardless, this character is truly a relic to behold.
The first character ever created, Kung Fu Man has a very limited two-button moveset, using (A) and (B) to punch and kick, respectively.
Kung Fu Man's combo system allows (A) Normals to cancel into the (B) Normal of that statetype, which can then be cancelled into either version of Kung Fu Palm and then Super Kung Fu Palm, though the timing is incredibly strict as the cancel window lasts for as long as the opponent is in hitpause, which is usually 8-12 frames depending on the strength of the attack; some moves are able to link together rather than cancel to form a combo, though this is typically restricted to (A) Normals.
Kung Fu Man has no custom A.I. and instead using the default A.I. built into the engine, though this is to be expected given that typical A.I. programming methods such as humanly-impossible commands and Winane's Helper-based A.I. had yet to be be created, as well as the the fact that Elecbyte wouldn't attempt actual A.I. integration until M.U.G.E.N 1.0 with its AILevel trigger, of which even laterversions failed to make use of; as an opponent, Kung Fu Man displays the typical behaviour of a character using the engine's A.I., adopting an overly defensive style of play should the opponent play aggressively and only ever attacking at seemingly random intervals.

This character does not have any victory quotes, meaning it uses the screenpack's default.
Kung Fu Man will go into a non-existent state if his throw is executed due to the actual move coding being absent, even though the activation code is there. This non-existent state is denoted by Kung Fu Man performing his walking animation on the spot.
