Maki is a Bushin
ninja like Guy. She made her first
appearance in Final Fight 2. In the Final Fight 2 storyline, Maki's father and
sister (Genryusai and Rena) are kidnapped by the newly revived Mad Gear gang
led by Retu (which is the plot of Final Fight 2). With Guy (Rena's fiance and
Genryusai's student) off training and unable to help, Maki enlists the help of
and Carlos Miyamoto to
assist her on her mission to save them. In Italy, Maki fights and defeats Rolento.
After defeating him, she questions him on her family's location and Rolento
reveals that they are being held hostage by Retu in Japan. Maki rushes back to
Japan to rescue them. During the final battle with the Retu, Maki kicks Retu
with so much strength that Retu couldn't block, and the powerful kick sends
him flying out of the dojo window to his death.
After the events of Final Fight 2, Maki is on a mission to find and
defeat Guy in order to become the next Bushin-ryu successor. She finds Guy and
challenges him, but their fight ends abruptly when they both sense M.
Bison's presence. Bison attacks them and Maki becomes stunned by one of
his attacks, but Guy saves her an causes Bison to withdraw. After the battle,
she hesitantly thanks Guy and states that she might not be ready to become the
next Bushin-ryu successor, but she will be when they meet again.

her cloths from the same store as Mai Shiranui... lol. Even though Maki's appearance might not not be the most exciting or original, she's definitely a cool character as the first heroine of the Final Fight series. Maki was one of the earliest "Rule 63" characters of the Capcom universe. Seeing a female version of
Guy was definitely cool for any Capcom fan in the 90's.
Final Fight 2 was a sleeper hit and only SNES fans remember that game... so it
was an awesome surprise to see Maki appear in a high profile fighting game like
Capcom VS SNK 2! Maki's CVS2 sprite is amazing on all levels. Capcom did an excellent job evolving her personality / moveset, and making her stand out in the game. Maki's transition from beat-em-up to fighting game was very accurate, as she
retains all of her iconic moves from Final Fight 2... and then some. Did I mention her CVS2 sprite and moveset is amazing? She's definitely one of my favorite characters in CVS2. Don't you dare miss her animations page, below!
