Sho Hayate (ショー・疾風, Shō Hayate), also known as just Hayate (ハヤテ), is the main character of the Savage Reign series.

His trademark yell (うおおおおおおおおおおおお!!!, "Uoooooooh!!!") during Savage Reign's intro made him a cult favorite amongst Japanese fans. This same shout was used during the audition for Hayate's new voice actor in The King of Fighters XI.

He is voiced by Kenichi Hayashi and Hiroyuki Inoue.


As the lone practitioner of his fighting style, Hayate is determined to show its might to anyone who bears witness. He hopes to one day become a true master, training non-stop and vigorously.


He is a dedicated warrior who is a bit behind on the times. His loud voice makes him unintentionally rude to others, which unfortunately gets him into a lot of fights.


  • Energy Attacks - Hayate can infuse his weapon, punches and kicks with ki energy.
  • Multiply Weapon - Hayate can create two energy copies of his boomerang.

Fighting StyleEdit

He fights with a boomerang and his own type of martial arts.


  • Cha-Cha-Cha - Savage Reign, The King of Fighters XI
