Tsugumi Sendo is a high school student from Osaka who was taught wrestling by her father, Kantetsu from an early age. However, she is secretly ashamed of this, especially after she was told by a boy she had a crush that woman wrestlers are "unfeminine", and wants to drop out of her wrestling training. 

After butting heads with her overbearing father, Kantetsu will allow her to drop out, but only under the condition that she brings a decisive victory in the King of Fighters tournament. Despite her original hatred for wrestling, she has come to enjoy fighting as she began to win matches. Some of Tsugumi's move names reference her hometown, like "Tsūtenkaku Driver", "Naniwa Lariat", and "Okonomiyaki-Ire".

Yes, Tsugumi's eyes are drawn weird (and look a bit creepy) in her official Fatal Fury: Wild Ambition artwork. It's surprising too... since nearly all of the other characters from Wild Ambition look awesome / badass in that set of artwork.

Anyhow, Tsugumi is yet another Japanese fighting game character design that takes a bit of research to figure out whether it's a guy or a girl. Interestingly, her costume design and some of her animations really make her seem like an "early" Asuka Kazama. Tsugumi actually appeared about 5 years before Asuka, so it's possible Namco was a fan of this character and took some inspiration for Asuka. Tsugumi has some decent throw techniques and comic relief in her moveset, but her attack animations are quite stiff (blame Fatal Fury: Wild Ambition's engine for that). Overall, she's a sleeper and lesser-known SNK character who we may never seen again in a future title.
