Akatsuki-maru definitely isn't the first fighting game Sumo Wrestler but is the first one on the alphabet. ;) Let's start with some fun facts about Sumo Wrestlers: Sumo wrestlers eat lots of healthy and delicious food like Chanko Nabe soup as part of a weight gain diet. I wonder if Hinako eats lots of that stuff.

Anyway, Akatsuki-maru is a pretty traditional-looking Sumo. No nonsense about him. In the fighting game universe, he appears a bit bland. His facial structure resembles Ganryu in particular. He seems a lot smaller than Taka-Arashi, however. I bet all three of them are friends and eat at the same Chanko Nabe restaurant.
