Is Billy Kane really 24 years old in Fatal Fury: King of Fighters and 28 years old in the original Real Bout Fatal Fury? I can tell by the characters' ages going up by 2 every 2 games up until Real Bout Fatal Fury 2. 68.205.83.35 02:45, January 16, 2010 (UTC)

Characters don't have official ages in the first Fatal Fury so I can't say that he is 24. The official story says only one year passes between the first game and the second game. There was a conjecture from another user who kept arguing that Terry can't be 22 in Fatal Fury 2, even though that's his actual listed age. Yes, it's doesn't exactly add up (since 10+10+1 =/= 22), but it's still the age that SNK gives him. You can see for yourself what I mean here. The ages listed for Billy in his infobox are his official ages from SNK too, but it's most likely not mathematically correct.
If you need a comparison for ages/time, the backstory says that a year passes between Fatal Fury and Fatal Fury 2. One year passes from the sequel to Fatal Fury 3. So Billy is 26 in Fatal Fury 2 and let's accept that he would theoretically be 27 or 28 in Fatal Fury 3. He doesn't have an official age listed for that game so I can't say if that's his actual age. Real Bout Special is supposed to take place approximately two years after FF3, and Billy's age is officially listed as 30. You can't say that Real Bout Special was three years later, since this contradicts other character ages that just add two years (again, see the character scan from the first paragraph to see what I mean). If it's any comparison though, Mai's 21 in Fatal Fury 3 so I don't know how that adds up.
I hope that kinda answers your question. :) I've given up trying to logically analyze SNK's continuity with ages a long time ago. Sake neko 04:01, January 16, 2010 (UTC)
Eh, the file you provided is entirely in Japanese. I do not understand Japanese, and I think Billy is 25 years old in the first Fatal Fury. 68.205.83.35 22:15, January 16, 2010 (UTC)
Here's a quick lesson in Japanese if you want to at least read what I'm talking about regarding ages in the image scan. "年齢" means "age" and any number preceding this character (歳) is their age. So if it says "年齢: 22歳", that person is 22 years old. Keep in mind that the scan is for Andy, Terry, and Joe. It doesn't include Billy's because I don't think there's really a need to scan it. His ages are already in the infobox.
And you're free to believe that Billy was 25, I won't argue that with you. But I will say that that is not his officially recorded age from SNK so don't put it in his infobox. As long as you know and understand that, then I have no problem with your conclusion. Sake neko 00:32, January 17, 2010 (UTC)
