BADAZZ (Anime/Fighter Story Interest Check)

#1

An Anime Fighter Roleplay

Story

This role play takes place in an anime world where martial arts grants average humans super powers. In this world, both the government and the school systems have dojos and academies for their soldiers and students. The city where this story takes place is called Andromeda. In Andromeda, it is believed that the most powerful martial arts school exists in the government’s hands. Every day, the government funds their research and science department with the hopes of creating the strongest and most powerful soldiers the world has ever seen. However, there exists other schools run by the rich. The rich alone are a self-proclaimed “noble” class where only the strongest are permitted into their social circles. They call their organization Noblesse and with their money, they too, have been able to create some of the toughest fighters the world has ever seen. Many fall blind to greed and the desire for power. There are low-class and poor who spend their lives saving their money, hoping to get into one of these schools for there are many underground throughout Andromeda and not all of them are as clean.

The underground, in this story, are the illegal dojos and academies operating in secret. At times, Noblesse knows about them and will recruit and even sponsor fighters from these illegal arenas. A fighter sponsored by Noblesse has a better chance of getting out of the ghetto and having a better life (so it is believed). These underground schools, however, have their obstacles. Many schools are ran by criminals who only wish to recruit for their gangs. These schools will have the poor carrying out tasks that can end in three ways if one was to fail: death, apprehension, or penny-less. It is a dog-eat-dog world and gangs will milk a person dry for whatever reason they desire. They take over neighborhoods and the police will do nothing for various reasons. Two of the reasons being: 1) they at least know where the gang is holed up and can keep an eye on them, and 2) they don’t have the fighter power to stop them.

In this world, if you’re not Noblesse or employed by the government, then you are a victim to those who have the money and power to lord it over you. Even people who aren’t normally criminals, but can afford enrollment at one of the top dojos, can easily become a villain purely out of ego. But there’s hope. The underground has a very negative reputation that creates a stereotype, which masks those schools who teach in honesty.

There is a legend about a man by the name of Koizumi Akashiro. He was once upon a time the strongest fighter in the world. Every year, at the Andromeda Ultimate Fighter Championship (AUFC), Akashiro would compete, and historically, he has won for thirteen years straight. Noblesse, the government, and even the people grew tired of Akashiro winning despite him having a fan base of over a million. One day, a gang by the name of The Black Kings, started a firefight in a neighborhood. Akashiro ran to the neighborhood’s aid when Andromeda City Police (ACP) were pinned down. Akashiro took down many of the gang members until a child was caught in the crossfire. In order to save the child, Akashiro jumped into harms way and a bullet struck him in the back. The ACP were able to clear out the gang, and they found Akashiro unable to move. He was rushed to the hospital and the doctor deemed him paralyzed from the waist down. In that instant, Akashiro’s fame instantly died. Many of his fans believe it was a set up by either Noblesse or the government. Akashiro is now an old man who is visited and cared for by his niece (Niece role taken). Back in the day, fighters traveled across the world to become his students, but gradually they all abandoned him seeking employment in the government and fame in the underground. Only those truly insistent on learning Akashiro’s secrets approach him. For now, he runs a restaurant named after himself "Akashiro's," where he serves various cuisine. And this, my friends, is where our story starts.

Nomenclature
Andromeda – main setting of the game and the name of the city.
Noblesse – an organization of the richest and strongest martial artists in the world.
The Underground – a term to mean those dojos and academies that operate illegally in secret.
Andromeda City Police (ACP) – the city’s police force.
Koizumi Akashiro – a living legend who was once the strongest fighter in the world.
Andromeda Ultimate Fighter Championship (AUFC) – an annual world tournament hosted in the city.


Setting

Andromeda is mostly modern with slightly futuristic qualities mostly seen in its automobiles and street cycles. The currency in the game are on plastic cards called credits. The metropolis uses mostly green technology from nuclear to solar panels. A.I. can be found doing basic service jobs such as serving customers at a restaurant or directing traffic. Weaponry is still of a modern-level, however, the weapon models are entirely fictional. You can have a character of any ethnicity in Andromeda because regardless, they are going to be called and Andromedan. This is an anime-style game so expect anime-style shenanigans.


Character Creation

I am curious to see what kind of characters you guys come up with. There is no limitation on what kind of a story you want to give your fighter. One role that is open is the niece of Koizumi Akashiro. Koizumi in this game is a character we can gather around for he was once upon a time an undefeated champion. This means that he can give your characters what they need to be the best without any money being involved. It’s convincing the old codger to teach you that is going to be difficult, but it will make for an interesting story. Koizumi is going to be my GM character. See the character sheet below.


Code:
[b]Character Name:[/b] What is your character's name? You can add a nickname here too.
[b]Alias:[/b] Do they have an alias? This is not a nickname.
[b]Age:[/b] Self-explanatory.
[b]Gender:[/b] Self-explanatory.
[b]Height:
Weight:
Hair Color:[/b] This is an anime story so whatever color.
[b]Eye Color:[/b] This is an anime story so whatever color.
[b]Complexion:[/b] Skin color.
[b]Build:[/b] Fat, lanky, athletic, solid, etc.
[b]Occupation:[/b] Student, Cop, Unemployed, Deliveryboy/girl, Gang member, etc.

[b]Visual Appearance:[/b] Anime pics only please. Keep your pics scaled down.
[b]Written Appearance:[/b] In this you describe your character's overall appearance to include extra details not seen in the picture you are using. Scars, tattoos, piercings, headbands and other accessories, etc.

[b]Personality:[/b] Summarize how they are like.

[b]Current Story:[/b] What has happened so far in their life and what are they doing now?

[b]Weapon(s):[/b] (Optional) Do they normally use a weapon in their martial arts? Warning: If your character is walking around with an assault rifle or bazooka as a weapon, this may not go well with the police so please be smart.

[b]Fighting Style:[/b] Summarize how your character fights. Automatically, those who study a martial art are superhuman. You do not have to list one martial art. You are also free to create your own fictional martial art. Get creative.

[b]Techniques[/b]

You are allowed up to five techniques. These are fighting sequences of movement, energy attacks, whatever "bad azz" move you want to give your fighter. Try not to go too out of your character's theme, otherwise, it may look weird.
If I get enough interested writers, then I will go into game rules later. For now, this is just the interest check. Feel free to ask questions or even drop a completed CS for review! If I get 3-5 CSes, then I'm going to make the CS thread over in Extra Pages along with the OOC.

Koizumi Akashiro (GM NPC)
#2


Character Name: Koizumi Akashiro; Old Man Shiro; Shiro; Ojii-san
Alias: The Legend; The Gentleman; Lord Stache (because of his magnificent mustache)
Age: You should never ask an old man his age. Just know that I'm old enough to be your grandfather.
Gender: Male
Height: (standing) 5'10" / (sitting) 5'0"
Weight: 155 lbs
Hair Color: White
Eye Color: Blue
Complexion: Pallor
Build: Top-heavy
Occupation: Owner of "Akashiro's" restaurant.


Written Appearance: Koizumi now resembles a man who could be anyone’s grandfather. Most of his time is spent in a wheelchair and so his legs aren’t what they used to be. However, above his waist is a rock-solid man who never stopped working out even despite his handicap. His wheelchair has misled many thieves and arrogant fighters who tried to harass him at his restaurant. You do not want this man to get his hands on you. He just might put you in a wheelchair. His crisp-blue eyes are gentle, and he tends to wear an expression of reflection. Often seen wearing a white chef uniform, he can usually be found in the kitchen cooking.

Personality: Koizumi used to be a driven man, and he claimed that drive was what blinded him. He couldn’t see those who were out to get him. He didn’t care. He was so immersed in the fame and the glory that he forgot what true martial arts were. He feels that he deserves where he is now—in a chair. Someone had to put the beast down and regardless if it was all happenstance or some cruel plot, it happened and there’s no going back.

Although he would never admit it, when his disciples abandoned him he was actually hurt and internally vowed to never have students again. He wants to leave his old life in the past where it belongs. He’s done being the champ. Now all he wants is to live out the rest of his years in peace. If you didn’t come by his restaurant to eat, then get out and leave him alone.

Current Story: There is a legend about a man by the name of Koizumi Akashiro. He was once upon a time the strongest fighter in the world. Every year, at the Andromeda Ultimate Fighter Championship (AUFC), Akashiro would compete, and historically, he has won for thirteen years straight. Noblesse, the government, and even the people grew tired of Akashiro winning despite him having a fan base of over a million. One day, a gang by the name of The Black Kings, started a firefight in a neighborhood. Akashiro ran to the neighborhood’s aid when Andromeda City Police (ACP) were pinned down. Akashiro took down many of the gang members until a child was caught in the crossfire. In order to save the child, Akashiro jumped into harms way and a bullet struck him in the back. The ACP were able to clear out the gang, and they found Akashiro unable to move. He was rushed to the hospital and the doctor deemed him paralyzed from the waist down. In that instant, Akashiro’s fame instantly died. Many of his fans believe it was a set up by either Noblesse or the government. Akashiro is now an old man who is visited and cared for by his niece. Back in the day, fighters traveled across the world to become his students, but gradually they all abandoned him seeking employment in the government and fame in the underground. Only those truly insistent on learning Akashiro’s secrets approach him. For now, he runs a restaurant named after himself "Akashiro's," where he serves various cuisine. Your character can learn more about him in game.


Weapon(s): Some believe his wheelchair to be a weapon.

Fighting Style: Akashiro can fight in and out of his wheelchair to his enemy’s surprise. Have you ever seen a wheelchair go airborne? Have you ever seen a wheelchair become a weapon? Then you have not seen legendary. Ever since Akashiro lost use of his legs, his upper body has compensated. He can move swiftly about on his hands without his chair and spring off of them to reach higher areas. His style has primarily become grappling, so an enemy would not want this man to get his hands on them. He just might turn them into a pretzel.

Techniques

Akashiro knows numerous techniques. Most of them have only been seen on TV and those weren't even believed to be all of them. Those were just his "tournament-friendly" ones.

I'll leave my character sheet here for now, since I just finished it. Let me know if I need to make any changes lore wise!

Character Name: Aoki Heizo; Ai (To close friends)
Alias: The Dragon Lady, Dragon Mistress, Ebony Dragon
Age: 24
Gender: Female
Height: 5'6ft (167.64cm)
Weight: 133 lbs.
Hair Color: Brunette
Eye Color: Hazel
Complexion: Beige
Build: Athletic build
Occupation: Bartender of "The Bleeding Dragon"
Written Appearance: Aoki is a young, average height female with slightly toned features. Aoki doesn't show much in muscular strength, but what she lacks in strength she excels with endurance. Aoki is known for stopping barfights by force and would sometimes leave the fight with a few new scars. They were nothing special, just small bruises on her arms and some scratches here and there that would heal but end up leaving some marks on her body. She is usually seen wearing black when taking over her bar shifts, but would usually wear an oversized hoodie and some leggings (Or anything else she finds comfortable) when she isn't working.

Personality: Aoki is a force to be reckoned with. Since taking charge of the Bleeding Dragon seven years ago, she learned how to deal with drunken brawls and annoying patrons. She can dismantle a barfight with a warning to patrons who knew her brute force. For the newcomers, well, they eventually learn not to disrespect the bar. Some of the patrons have given her alias such as the "Dragon Lady" or "The Ebony Dragon", almost all the names a large majority of the names contain a dragon theme to them, due to the fact the bar she worked at had the same title as well. Overall, Aoki can be a laid back and patient person. She's easy to approach and is open to conversation, although she doesn't speak unless spoken to. Unless she really needs to get her point across then she'll participate in taking charge of the conversation. Other than that she enjoys her silence. One of the cons of owning a popular bar was dealing with the constant rowdiness of customers. The times Aoki has to herself are a blessing and she would much rather keep it that way.

Current Story: Aoki's family was never really rich, nor were they poor. The Heizo family were mostly known as farmers and wanted their children to carry out their legacy. Aoki is the youngest of seven siblings and thought that her family deserved a whole lot more in life rather than just shoveling manure all day. She began practicing judo under her friend's uncle during her free time. At the age of 15, Aoki wanted to make it into the big leagues of Andromeda. She had been practicing judo for almost a decade and was figuring out how to get herself out of her small town and into the bustling city life. Aoki didn't find any potential in her small hometown. It was located in the countryside, completely out of the minds of the people of Andromeda. Aoki figured if she needed to make it into the big leagues she needed a way into the city and couldn't rely on her fighting skills alone. At the age of 19, Aoki got in touch with some distant relatives and got herself a job as a bar back for one of the popular bars in the downtown area of the city, "The Bleeding Dragon". Aoki began living in a small apartment, enrolling herself in a school within the city. She focused on her studies there and attempted to gain the attention of Noblesse. She also was able to work her way up within the bar, going from a bar back to a bartender at age 21. It had been three years since she had finally finished her teachings and still hadn't gained any attention from the higher-ups. Most of the other students in her school weren't noticed as well and Aoki knew she had to find a way to distinguish herself from the rest. Running out of options, Aoki decided to seek out this so-called "legend" she had heard the residents gossip about and ask for his aid.

Weapon(s): Aoki prefers close hand-to-hand encounters rather than weapons. She believes it to be a cheap way of winning fights.

Aura: White

Fighting Style: Aoki follows the martial art style of judo. Judo requires Aoki to focused both mentally and physically, so she's able to include her energy into her attacks

Techniques: Aoki follows a judo style, yet would sometimes add a bit of tai chi (which she learned a bit of from time at school) into the mix. She's able to focus her energy into her hands causing her attacks to pack more of a punch, which is beneficial to her slight lack of muscular strength.

Fighting Style: Aoki follows the martial art style of judo. Judo requires Aoki to focused both mentally and physically, so she's able to include her energy into her attacks

Techniques: Aoki follows a judo style, yet would sometimes add a bit of tai chi (which she learned a bit of from time at school) into the mix. She's able to focus her energy into her hands causing her attacks to pack more of a punch, which is beneficial to her slight lack of muscular strength. (This should be a list of techniques. Here are some examples--you don't have to use these. I'm just clarifying:
• Dragon Throw: Aoki will grab her opponent and throw them "x" feet. She can lob enemies who weigh up to "x" with little effort.
• Dragonfire: Aoiki charges a fiery ki in her hands and upon thrusting out her palms, sends a cannonball of (color) ki at her foes.
These were just some examples. You are allowed up to five. I didn't list any for Akashiro because he's an old man with tons of experience and has over five techniques.
I marked anything that may have needed your attention in red. Overall, besides what I pointed out (some things I just pointed out so you can see them) this CS is great. No changes to the lore, her personality, or anything. You grasped the concept of this game superbly! Aoki seems really cool and I can't wait to see her temper in game. The Dragon Lady comes off as the type to not let anyone push her around! :3D:

Thanks for reviewing it! I just finished editing the sheet and added some examples for the technique. For shifting scales, I could tone down the counter to one style, since I wasn't so sure if having three counters could act as one move. I tried not to make it too overpowering. I also kept the two moves you gave as an example since they sounded pretty cool.

Hey Tira; I wouldn't worry too much about cool downs. I am entrusting everyone to play by the "Rule of Cool." Those rules simply being don't go overboard. I am entrusting everyone, when it comes to in-game fight situations, to not go overboard--for example, taking on one hundred enemies and not having a single scratch on them or even breaking a sweat. Not at the start of this game at least. :hornskiss: The RP will mostly be PVE. PVP will be decided between those writers who wish to have their characters spar. Combat rules will be explained in the main game once we get there. She looks good. I have nothing further to comment on. ^_^
 
#10
So I may actually be building the OOC today. I say "building" because I was experimenting with BBCode yesterday, and I plan to go all out with it, making tabs, and having character buttons that will link people to their CSes. I am still looking for some more CSes - at least two more. But there will be an OOC that I will link here once I get it going. I will start on it after work. Even if you see my WIP, you will still be free to post in it. :3D:
 
#11
Here is the OOC and Character Thread. Whether you are working on a CS, finished and have an approved CS, or just want to socialize with other potential writers/game participants - you are free to chat in the OOC. I'm still working on it. It took me some hours just to get the prototype up. @Tiramiisu go ahead and post Aoki into the CS thread. I'm going to be testing out special avatars and links to the CS page from the OOC page. I may do this tomorrow though. All that coding made me tired. zzzz

I will be accepting CSes either posted here in the Interest Check or in the OOC. However you guys want to get them to me for approval. :grinningteeth:
 
#15
I could be interested in this. I'll see about setting up a character.

Will there be a Discord for the OOC?
This sounds interesting. Is there any posting frequency you have in mind?
We could create a discord server. I use discord for gaming and other RPs I'm involved in. I want to make sure that enough people are interested in discord and are capable of having access to it though. We will establish that as we gain some more characters.

As for the frequency question, as long as you post once a week, I don't see a problem. I am not a speed poster because I am usually in a different timezone than the majority of participants and work keeps me busy. I hope that frequency is tame for you. :3:

"I don't actually care for fighting to tell ya the truth."
adf3ec11144440976381412f584eb517934c1e74_hq.gif
Character Name: Taiga Ryuzaki
Alias: The Hollow Swordswomen
Age: 19
Gender: Female
Height: 5’9
Weight: 146 ibs
Hair Color: White
Eye Color: Gold
Complexion: Pale
Build: Lanky
Occupation: Currently Unemployed


Visual Appearance 69694-1532336916.jpg
Written Appearance: Taiga doesn’t look like what most would call a martial artist, her arms are slim and she gives off the aura of a weakling. Yet under her clothes one would find her body is covered in scars, not just that but she is actually very muscular. She typically wears clothes that will cover her scars like jackets, hoodies, or long sleeved t-shirts.


Personality: Often mistaken for a boy Taiga is very self conscious about her looks and worries about coming off as too manly. She blames it on her mother for not being very womanly, despite her worries she only ever seems manly when it comes to danger. Taiga normally is shy and keeps to herself but when it comes to danger it’s as if a switch is flipped and she gets incredibly serious. In truth Taiga’s shyness is just a front to hide as she had learned the way she had acted before drew a lot of unwanted attention. Even though it’s one of the few things she’s good at Taiga actually quite dislikes fighting and would rather solve things with words rather than fist. She dislikes fighting so much Taiga often pretends to not know how to fight and will let people who seem troublesome beat her up until they lose interest in fighting her. Taiga just wants to live comfortably, so she avoids getting involved in things that seem like they will breed problems. When Taiga feels like her comfortable life is threatened she will drop her act and get serious. tenor (3).gif
Current Story: Taiga’s birth was born out of necessity rather than a love, her mother and father were members of two rival dojos. The elders of the dojos decided the two families should join forces to strengthen their fighting style. Thus they chose their best fighters to give birth to the next generation of the the two families. Taiga often envied other children as she never got a chance to act like one or do what most kids do. Like play outside, or go to school, or have friends instead her childhood was completely devoted to training. As such her social life was non-existent as her parents put her through harsh training. Taiga was often told that it would be her job to lead the new age of the family yet all she could think about was getting a chance to be her own person. She got that chance when her parents told her to head into city and test this new fighting style. Taiga on the other hand sees this as her chance to have her chance at a comfortable life. She just hopes she can stay out enough trouble so she can keep this chance.

Weapon(s): Due to both her martial arts and how carrying a weapon might prove troublesome Taiga does not do so.

Fighting Style: Taiga grew up learning two styles of martial arts and was tasked with finding a way to splice the two into a new style. The two previous styles Torakasai and Ryutento were very different. Torakasai focused on using quick and precise strikes users of this style had no need for weapons as their body did just fine. Ryutento was focused on counters and blocks, users of this style were practically living walls as they were capable of even deflecting blades. Taiga combined these two styles creating Chuku ha or hollow blade style. Taiga created this style out of her desire to live comfortably.

Techniques
Broken Blade: When hit with an attack Taiga moves with the attack in order to damper the damage it deals to her. This is not possible if Taiga can not follow the attack.


Chipped Blade: Taiga strikes her opponent in the center of their chest just before they hit her knocking the wind out of them.

Traitorous Blade: A moves used when surrounded Taiga guides her foes attacks towards others effectively making the group fight each other.

Seppuku: Taiga uses the momentum from an attack she had taken to deal twice the damage to her foe. She can not use Broken Blade when using this technique and must take the hit head on in order to use it properly.

Golden Eyes: A technique Taiga developed due to her keen instincts and observation, while using this technique Taiga becomes capable of dodging most incoming attacks so long as she is looking at the person attacking her. This is almost impossible to use against multiple foes. All of Taiga’s focus is on dodging as such she can not fight back while using this technique.

She just hopes she can stay out enough trouble so she can keep this chance.

Weapon(s): Due to both her martial arts and how carrying a weapon might prove troublesome Taiga does not do so.

Fighting Style: Taiga grew up learning two styles of martial arts and was tasked with finding a way to splice the two into a new style. The two previous styles Torakasai and Ryutento were very different. Torakasai focused on using quick and precise strikes users of this style had no need for weapons as their body did just fine. Ryutento was focused on counters and blocks, users of this style were practically living walls as they were capable of even deflecting blades. Taiga combined these two styles creating Chuku ha or hollow blade style. Taiga created this style out of her desire to live comfortably.

Techniques
Broken Blade: When hit with an attack Taiga moves with the attack in order to damper the damage it deals to her. This is not possible if Taiga can not follow the attack.


Chipped Blade: Taiga strikes her opponent in the center of their chest just before they hit her knocking the wind out of them.

Traitorous Blade: A moves used when surrounded Taiga guides her foes attacks towards others effectively making the group fight each other.

Seppuku: Taiga uses the momentum from an attack she had taken to deal twice the damage to her foe. She can not use Broken Blade when using this technique and must take the hit head on in order to use it properly.

Golden Eyes: A technique Taiga developed due to her keen instincts and observation, while using this technique Taiga becomes capable of dodging most incoming attacks so long as she is looking at the person attacking her. This is almost impossible to use against multiple foes. All of Taiga’s focus is on dodging as such she can not fight back while using this technique.
I love the concept. It's definitely different than what this game would expect. She's approved. Maybe she'll want to get a job working at Akashiro's as a service maid or something? :)

Written Appearance: Juro's body is slim, but noticeably muscled and toned from a lifetime of surviving in a rough neighborhood. Most of his body is scar free, save for his arms, which are checkered with multiple thin and long marks from fights long past. Resembling tiger stripes, these scars get more numerous and densely packed as it gets closer to his hands and knuckles which always seem to bruised. When it comes to dress, Juro's style focuses on a good range of movement with a strong urban flair. Usually opting for loose fitting joggers and sneakers in his typical "Ass kicking" attire.

Personality: Loud, brash, and egocentric to boot. Juro portrays himself as a self serving punkish personality. Showing a fierce disdain for authority, or pretty much anyone who tells him what to do. A born shit-talker, Juro has a tendency to poke fun at his friends and enemies no matter the situation (especially in fights). He's also obsessed with strength to a fanatical degree he constantly chases it; both for himself and in others. An impulsive thrill seeker, he'll challenge anyone who he sees as considerably strong -- even if he know's he's outmatched. This one track pursuit of strength has and continues to put him in painful and potentially life threatening situations (not that he cares) all for the purpose of becoming stronger.

Current Story:
Born in one of the shittiest neighborhoods in Andromeda; known lovingly by it's inhabitants as the Seventh Circle. Acting as the center for a massive four way gang war, Seventh Circle had little to no police presence and acted as the center for a massive four way gang war. Fighting to survive was a way of life and Juro had to grow up fast, constantly finding himself in and out of trouble. It was customary for kids to form cliques and pick a side in the gang war for protection. Juro however was extremely strong, even without martial arts. Seeing his strength, gangs would try to recruit him to their side, but being the stubborn ass that he was, he'd always refuse.

After a while, some gangs started to try to either recruit him by force, or to remove him from the situation entirely and stop him from picking a side. It got to the point where everyday he was under attack, eventually the fights were starting to take their toll and he honestly didn't expect to live to 18 -- or even the end of the week. Luckily enough for him he met another unaffiliated kid by the name of Shao, but he was known by the neighborhood as Shadow. They were fast friends and quickly became partners in crime. Roughing up the gangs in their neighborhoods. Shadow was extremely charismatic and something of a leader, while Juro was the real muscle behind the two of them. It wasn't long before Shadow began to gain a following of people who were inspired by their efforts against these gangs. Soon enough the word spread and they gained more and more members numbering in the hundreds with Shadow as their leader they became known as The Legion.

Years later and the situation's gone to shit. Shadow's dead and the gang pretty much scattered to the wind, as did Juro. Vengeful and grief stricken, he's set out on a quest for strength, power, and prestige that him and his old friend used to dream of for themselves. He's searching for an old and now retired "Legend" that his friend used to look up to and gush stories about for tutelage.

Weapon(s): In Juro's words, his knuckles are lethal weapons.

Fighting Style: A hodgepodge mixture of Boxing, Wrestling, and Street fighting, Juro has had no formal training in martial arts and pretty much has just been making it up as he goes along. While extremely physically powerful, his style is simple and unrefined lacking in both technique and finesse. Juro compensates with pure brute force, relying on his strength and speed to overwhelm the opponent, while also throwing in a little flair to style on his enemies.

Techniques

  • Knuckle Buster: A haymaker thrown with over 200% effort! The knuckle buster is Juro's be-all end-all move.
  • Buster Storm: What's better than just one punch? A storm of em'! Juro releases a relentless barrage of Knuckle Buster's on the target.
  • Hell Drop: Juro grabs his opponent around the waist, bending backwards using the opponents weight and gravity to slam them into the floor.
  • A-Bomb: A simple but devastating dropkick using speed and weight for a surprising amount of force!
