Meitenkun is a member of KOF XIV's "China Team" along with Tung Fu Rue and Shun'ei. He is a sleepy young fighter who is always seen holding a pillow and is a disciple of Master Tung Fu Rue. His fighting style was named Hakkyokuminminken (Eight Extremities Sleepy Fist) by Tung. He conceals enough energy to earn himself the title of Tung's "secret weapon".

FUN FACT: The name Meitenkun sounds almost the same as the Chinese phrase "mei tian kun" in Mandarin, which literally means "sleepy everyday".

SNK, you've put another character in your game that makes me feel like I'm too old to play it. Even Bao didn't seem so completely out of place as... *yawn* Meh-tenkun. I used to play fighting games to get away from bright-shiny characters like these. Is Mei a Nintendo / Smash character? Seems like for kids.

An "outside of the box" design for KOF... Meitenkun is literally half asleep all the time {insert laugh}), plus he has ridiculous magical powers and throws pillows at his opponents. So is he a Guilty Gear character? Bedman's nephew? >_> Points for originality I guess? But this character looks pretty stupid fighting against cool series veterans like Kyo, Iori, K', etc. (literally name 100's of characters here). MEH. Meh-tenkun doesn't look like a "KOF" or "SNK" character at all... so his gimmick seems to stand out the most. I'm not sure I get the joke or understand this character archetype. I'm good, I just won't pick him and hope not to fight against him. Yes, he's a character like that. You know the ones.
