Raiden (ライデン, Raiden) is a character from the Fatal Fury series who originally appeared in the first Fatal Fury.

He was long considered for The King of Fighters series and he finally made his debut in The King of Fighters XII. Developers wanted to add him as the big burly guy for the cast. The reason they didn't choose his face counterpart was due to the overall insistence to add a giant, evil character. His official nickname is The Out-of-Control Giant.

StoryEdit

Fatal FuryEdit

Raiden is a professional wrestler known for his ruthlessness in the ring. He is very strong and is known to manhandle his opponents. He moved to South Town to get involved with strong fights. He was eventually hired by Geese Howard as one of his henchmen. He entered The King of Fighters tournament created by Geese, but was eventually defeated by Andy Bogard. He eventually chose to redeem himself under his face persona.

The King of FightersEdit

His profile story in The King of Fighters XII mentions that his loyal fan is Kain Goldman, who lived in Second Southtown and idolized Raiden since his childhood days. Raiden enters The King of Fighters tournament to mainly relive his glory days of pro wrestling.

In the series' backstory, he hasn't entered a The King of Fighters tournament in years. His past history with Geese is summarized when he meets Hwa Jai in South Town, stating that he left Geese to live a new life back in his home country. Content with his heel and face personalities in the wrestling ring, he is surprised when Kim believes that he is still working for Geese. In spite of the misunderstanding, he convinces Hwa Jai to join since teaming with Kim will boost their reputations as fighters.
