Hon Fu


Hon Fu is a Hong Kong police offer who practices Kun Fu and specializes in using a nunchaku. During the events of Fatal Fury 3, he's on a case concerning the mass illegal drug trade in Asia. He has a feeling that one of the main proprietors in his home country is Ryuji Yamazaki and follows the criminal to South Town, but never actually manages to catch him.

Kim Kaphwan is a friend of his and apparently introduced him to Myeng Swuk. Kim and Hon Fu both share a strong sense of justice, Hon Fu's isn't quite as overzealous as Kim's. At times, Hon Fu also seems to be scared of Kim and jumps at the slightest mention of his name. He is also a friend of Cheng's as they admire each others' fighting styles.

To sum up his design... Hon Fu = Jackie Chan + Bruce Lee with nunchaku. ;) To state the obvious, Hon Fu's attire is pretty generic. He looks like he could be a typical bad guy in any old school Kung-Fu flick or game who dies in 3 seconds. lol. Alright, let's give Mr. Fu a chance.... I suppose Jacky Chan's attire in his early movies was also on the "generic" side of things, but Jackie Chan was Jackie Chan. However, this doesn't really help Hon Fu in the fighting game universe, where there are far more exciting and elaborate designs based on martial arts legends. I think SNK also realized this, since we haven't seen Hon Fu appear since the Real Bout series (outside of his cool cameo with Yamazaki in Capcom Vs. SNK).

On the bright side... Hon Fu has a fairly entertaining and well-animated fighting style (notably in the later Real Bout games). He swings the nunchakus pretty well and has some authentic martial arts kicks & strikes. Not too bad, but not particularly great either.
