BIO:

Lee Pai Long is a master of Chinese medicine and Chinese martial arts. His style of fighting is described as "a gentle yet destructive" art. His adoptive father and mentor, Lee Gakusuo, passed on his pharmaceutic knowledge and martial arts to him before instructing Lee to finish his studies in South Town. Once he arrived there, Lee became fascinated with the local style of Kenpo and neglected his roots to be a street fighter. He pursues his wishes to be a pharmacist in the following game. In his ending to AOF2, Lee would humorously become famous for finding the cure to hemorrhoids.

His adoptive father considers himself to be a good acquaintance and sparring partner of Takuma. When Gakusuo was 93, he clashed with the younger Takuma bare handed and became responsible for the X-shaped scar on his chest. This is briefly touched upon in Honki ni Natta Mr. Karate's ending for SNK vs Capcom: SVC Chaos where Takuma fondly chats with Lee. Choi from KOF uses a similar fighting style and attacks very similar to Lee's.

I always thought Lee Pai Long was a VERY UNDERRATED and particularly cool part of the Art of Fighting roster! Still to this day, Lee hasn't appeared in many other fighting games outside of his debut. Lee's slightly creepy and mysterious personality, along with his cool fighting style makes him pretty unique... even against some of the iconic fighting game characters of the early / mid 90's. Hey, he's less of a rip-off than John Crawley, at least.

While I loved Lee's AOF1 appearance... I found his AOF2 design to be pretty dull and disappointing! Did Lee go on a dumpling binge after losing in AOF1? The dude looks like he put on 65 pounds in AOF2. lol. After Lee's not-so-great appearance in AOF2, he was absent from fighting games for over a decade! Finally in 2005, Lee made his epic return in Neo Geo Battle Coliseum... and whaddya know... SNK brought back his original AOF1 appearance! Out of all the characters announced for NGBC, I think I was most excited about the return of Lee. Still to thi day, Lee is one of my favorite characters of AOF
