Maki Genryusai


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 Mike Haggar 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.

Maki must buy 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!
