Men's Club version (KoF2002UM)


Fatal Fury

Ryuji Yamazaki is a character that first appears in Fatal Fury 3 and also appears in The King of Fighters series. He is a gangster that deals in drugs and weapons and is also a broker in Hong Kong. He is known to be an insane and unstable man.

Ryuji was an orphan in the city of Okinawa until he saw a Yakuza (Japanese Mafia) boss named Sorimachi. He became Ryuji's idol and adoptive father after Ryuji joined a crime syndicate. One day, Sorimachi was captured, tortured, and slain by a rival mafia group. This tragic event triggers Ryuji's insane ego, which results in him killing the entire group on the spot.

In The King of Fighters, it is revealed that he is one of the Hakkesshu (Eight Heads of Orochi), a group of Orochi's servants, who has been bestowed with powers over darkness. However, he has no interest in the group or their goal of reawakening Orochi. Normally, he would have been eliminated, but he is just too powerful for any of the Hakkesshu. Ironically, he is the only surviving member of the Hakkesshu.

In M.U.G.E.N, Yamazaki has been made by various authors.

Gameplay (Sander71113's version) Edit


The sprites come from The King of Fighters '97. This version of Yamazaki employs his specials and hypers often. His moveset consists of cheap, dirty, and dishonest fighting techniques such as grabbing and dragging his opponents on the floor, stabbing, kicking, or punching his enemies while holding them, kicking dust into the opponent's eyes, etc. His combos are fatal and dish out plenty of damage and nearly can take most out of the player's life depending on the state of the player character. As for his A.I. he is jumpy and will attack often. He is a force to be reckoned with.

This version of Yamazaki was also used for starting the "Yamazaki stomps X in the nuts" fad by numerous mugenites
