Kim Dong Hwan (Korean: 김동환; Japanese: キム・ドンファン, Kimu Donfan) is a character from the Fatal Fury series of fighting games. He was first introduced as a playable character in Garou: Mark of the Wolves. He is one of the children of Kim Kaphwan, alongside his brother Kim Jae Hoon.
Kim Dong Hwan and Kim Jae Hoon are the two sons of Kim Kaphwan, worldwide famous Taekwondo master, While Jae Hoon is a serious practitioner and very similar to his father, Dong Hwan is very cocky and somewhat of a slacker. Though it may seem like he's goofing off, he enters the tournament to continue his father's legacy.
Very goofy, a slacker and cocky, Dong Hwan thinks highly of himself. He is a natural genius who often skips out on his training. He wants to become a taekwondo master with his own unique twist to his father's style.
He is also known for creating various made up words and phrases on whim. One of these is "pompe", which was apparently made while he was playing video games with his brother. He is hinted to also being a sore loser, because he accuses Jae Hoon of being a cheater when he loses their friendly games.
In the anime, the personalities of the brothers were reversed, as Dong Hwan was the shy one while Jae Hoon was more outgoing.
- Electrokinesis - Dong Hwan can control electricity.
- Electric Attack - Dong Hwan can deliver kicks flowing with electricity.
- Lightning Summon - By kicking in a descending motion, Dong Hwan can summon lightning from the sky.
- Acrobatics - Kim is very proficient in acrobatics, using it with his Tae Kwon Do skills.
- Advanced Kicking - Thanks to his Tae Kwon Do training, Dong Hwan is able to do very fast multiple chain kicks.
Dong's fighting style is pretty unorthodox. He often mocks his opponents by slapping the opponent in the face with several kicks. He also uses several acrobatic kicks with a more heavy focus on singular techniques (and a lesser focus on successive attacks).
