Bayhou is a primate-like creature from China, who lives simply by his animalistic instincts. He was eventually visited by Fo Fai, who passed down his iron claws to him and trained him in his fighting style. After being targeted by the Organization, Bayhou enters the third Toshinden tournament.

A fighting snow monkey... with Vega claws... as a successor to Fo? I'm cool with this. He's got all the qualities of an obscure fighting game character to stand out among the rest of the cast. I'm pretty sure Bayhou is also the first (playable) monkey to appear on a fighting game roster. Paku Paku first appeared in SS2 as a support character in 1994, later becominga playable character in SS6 in 2005. Bayhou debuted in 1996. Maybe Paku's 2P outfit in SS2 inspired his fur color, at the least?

In terms of Hominoidea, Bayhou is a rather cool looking ape design.  Although Bayhou's fighting style isn't 100% original and lacks depth... Fo's style of fighting actually suits this design pretty well. Bayhou shares some similarities with Lee Pai Long as well.
