Franco Bash... what a name. I always thought Franco Bash looked like Super Mario on steroids. You did a funny thing, SNK. >_> Franco is definitely a goofy-looking character. Very G-rated. For one, he didn't get me interested in the Real Bout series and was the type of character that kept me away from the game. To his credit, following his original appearance, Franco's updated sprite in Real Bout 2 definitely helped his design a bit. His animations and some of his key special moves / mannerisms definitely improved in the sequel. The Franco dance (below) is one of his best.

Like Balrog, he punches hard... and calls it a day. His moveset isn't the most interesting, but he gets punchy and funky. He's just kind of a "fun" character by SNK. ^o^ As far as boxing in suspenders goes, Dudley does it better. Much better. Anywho, it's understandable why SNK pretty much dropped this design after a few games. You'll be lucky to make a background cameo appearance in a future SNK game, Mr. Bash (if that's your real name).
