Fuuma Kotaro (風魔 小太郎, Fūma Kotarō), often referred to by his surname, "Fuuma" (フウマ), is a character from the World Heroes series. He is Hanzo Hattori's rival. His IQ is said to be "higher than a monkey's".

He is based on the historical moniker of the same name, which was given to the head of the much debated Fuuma clan. His weapon, Murasame, is also named after the legendary sword of the same name.


Fuuma is the fifth leader of the Fuuma clan. Ever since a Kotaro beat Hanzo when he was 19, the two clans have been rivals ever since. Unlike his rival, Fuuma adopts to the new culture that he's in and is excited by change. He disguises himself as a blond-haired business man to make ends meet. The company that he works for isn't really elaborated on, but ADK World implies that he works at an American general trading company.

Ryu from Ninja Commando is his 32nd descendant.


He's an easy going womanizer who doesn't like to work any harder than he has to. He also acts like a rebellious kabukimono, posing and announcing himself in the same manner. In his appearance in Aggressors of Dark Kombat, he momentarily slips into the same speech mannerisms as Hanzo. This is the only game he slips into an archaic tone, but this is mainly blamed on a glitch caused by the time machine.


Aside from these powers, he also has all the skills perceived to be had by ninja (stealth, swimming, climbing, ect.).

  • Pyrokinesis: Using his ninjutsu, Fuuma can control flames. With this, he can throw blaze-tinted kunai, create a rising uppercut, and shoot red energy from his hands.
  • Teleportation - Fuuma can teleport short distances.

He is the "Ken" to Hanzo. His special moves tend to have multiple hits and are usually shorter ranged.
