THE ART OF FIGHTING SAGA
THE CHARACTERS - CONTINUATION
If the main plot of the saga is mainly happening around the Sakazaki family, Art of Fighting still features a lot of secondary characters, among whom the most memorable ones are included in the first game. One can easily remind King (and the doubt about his/her personality), of course Todoh who we face early in the game; there's also in the second game Eiji the ninja and Temjin the ... fatso, who probably less marked memories. Art of Fighting 3 took place much later and staged brand new fighters. The last character linked to the saga appears in 1999... in Garou: Mark of the Wolves.
