Birtakım filolojik hassasiyetler: Eskiçağ ve günümüze dair kişisel okumalar ::: İstanbul Üniversitesi, Latin Dili ve Edebiyatı bölümünde Doktora Öğrencisi. Yeditepe Üniversitesi ve Doğa Koleji'nde Latince Okutmanı, yazar, okur, eyler!
Ryuji Yamazaki (山崎 竜二) is a psychotic criminal from southtown who is best known for his unhonorable fighting style and his mental unbalance. He worked with the Jin Twins to protect them and the scrolls of immortality in Fatal Fury 3: Road to the Final Victory.
In contrast with most of the other fighters in combat video games, Ryuji Yamazaki does not use any particular martial art – he is a self-taught brawler, and uses a wide variety of attacks in his fighting, including unfair and dishonest moves such as kicking sand in his opponent’s eyes, and his ever-present knife. He also rarely takes his right hand out of his pocket unless he is using his knife.
To bring the story that had grown too large and out of control back on track, the members of the Orochi 8ketsu Clan were teamed up in ’97. By doing this, we thought, the story would reach its conclusion for the time being…but among the three new faces including Leona’s father Gaidell, we lacked one more member for the 8ketsu. What should we do? …And along came Ryuji Yamazaki to bail us out of our predicament.
A snake charmer that even looked like a snake, he became a popular villain. He once humbled himself, joined up with the Fatal Fury team, and blended into the world of KOF more than we had predicted.
The game planner at that time really knocked himself out to provide new moves for Yamazaki. Idea after idea got a short trip to the circular file (Attract opponent after Snake Charmer move; Seven Serpent Dagger Throw, etc.), and those failures led to successful moves like the Sand Sweeper.
