Fuuma Kotaro

Fuuma is the fifth leader of the Fuuma clan. Ever since a Kotaro beat Hanzou Hattori when he was 19, the two clans have been rivals ever since. Unlike his rival, Fuuma adopts to the new culture that he's in and is excited by change. He disguises himself as blond-haired business man to make ends meet. The company that he works for isn't really elaborated on, but ADK World implies that he works at an American general trading company. Ryu from Ninja Commando is his 32nd descendant. He is based off of the real Fuuma Kotaro.

Every fighting gamer's first impression of Fuuma? Clearly "the Ken Masters" of the World Heroes series. Yeah, he's the "red guy" alright. Didn't he make a cameo in Double Dragon? Just kidding. As the rival of the main ninja character of World Heroes (Hanzou), he had a somewhat cool persona in the series and similar special moves to mirror is brother. Half-brother? Friend? I forget. Strangely, Fuuma also appeared in the SNK spin-off fighting game, Aggressors of Dark Kombat (an absolute flop). I bet Fuuma regrets that one.

Many years later, SNK surprisingly brought Fumma back and refined his design in NeoGeo Battle Coliseum - easily his coolest appearance to date (although some of his new moves are pretty cheap)! Fuuma in NGBC is almost an entirely different character from is early World Heroes appearance. I'd even say he's badass! The dude's hair game is strong, for sure (unless that's a wig).
