Yugo Ogami



Yugo's quest to uncover the mysterious circumstances of his father's death led him to Tylon Coroporation's secret research institution. He learns that his father was kidnapped and forced to become a test subject for Tylon's zoanthrope weapons plans. To avenge his father, Yugo destroys the research institute together with Gado.

After surveying the destruction of the research facility, Yugo found a young boy in the midst of the smoke and rubble. Instincts told Yugo that the boy was a man-made zoanthrope - probably the result of a Tylon Corporation experiment. Together with the boy, whom Yugo named "Kenji", Yugo returned to Japan and continued his professional boxing career.

Though he keeps his zoanthrope nature a secret, the life of a boxer satisfies Yugo's fighting instincts well. Kenji has no memory of his life before Yugo, but seems happy to be under his care. All is well until one day, Kenji is abducted right before Yugo's eyes by a man who claims to be the scientific genius, Busuzima, who is responsible for the experiments of the man-made zoanthrope assassins. Apparently, Kenji is the sole succesor to Tylon's former top assassin, Bakuryu. Yugo is thrusted into another dangerous quest - this time to save a young boy whose future lies in his hands.

Yugo is a semi-decent, "safe" hero design for the series. I say safe, because his original BR1 attire is pretty simple, and even resembles several other popular fighting game characters (at the time of his debut), including Lion & Kensou. His Bloody Roar 2 & 3 outfits were slightly better, and in Bloody Roar 3: Primal Fury, his appearance evolved yet again. Something about his newer style reminds me of Jin Kazama for some reason... maybe it's the spikier hair, the way he holds his glove, and the flame designs? lol. The fact that the Bloody Roar series was trying to ride the coattails of the Tekken series also adds to the effect. ;)

At the end of the day, I suppose he's one of the better designs from Bloody Roar, but he's also kinda boring in some ways. He doesn't have much personality for one. And compared to many other fighting game heroes, Yugo clearly falls a bit short.
