Rodriguez (known as Khushnood Butt in the English versions) is a
Kyokugen-style karate expert who trained under Ryo
Sakazaki. When he became a black belt, he opened a dojo in Brazil and
started teaching Kyokugenryu Karate. To prove the might of the martial art,
Khushnood entered the "King of Fighters: Maximum Mayhem" tournament.
When he returned, he learned that all of his best students got beaten up by
the "Gym Buster". Hearing that, he now seeks the maniac.
Marco lead a somewhat austere life in a wooded area on the outskirts of town,
and fights using powerful, deliberate attacks. Many
of his victory quotes sound insightful and philosophical, just as serious
as his training and demeanor.
Marco was a green belt at the time of The King of Fighters XI.
