A friendly and carefree
basketball player, Lucky also dabbled in karate. One day his friend Heavy
D! invited him to the King of Fighters tournament. He joins the tournament with
Brian Battler, Heavy D to form the American Sports Team and to test his fighting ability. Even though they
performed miserably, Lucky isn't one to mourn. He keeps enjoying his life
far from the fighting arena. Lucky's original concept design was based on "Hakim"
from Bruce Lee's martial arts film, Game of Death. Some fans speculate
that his design was also inspired by Dunk Dream (or Street Hoop
/ Street Slam in North America), a sports game for the Neo-Geo.
Along with the rest of
the members of the American Sports Team, have a running gag in the history of
KOF which involves their invitations being stolen by other participants. For
one example, the backstory of Neo Geo Battle Coliseum shows Shermie
defeating Lucky and taking his invitation to the tournament. Later in KOF
Maximum Impact Regulation A, Mizoguchi
also defeats him and takes his invitation.
