Maki is a Bushin
ninja like Guy. She made her first
appearance in Final Fight 2. In the Final Fight 2 storyline, Maki's father and
sister (Genryusai and Rena) are kidnapped by the newly revived Mad Gear gang
led by Retu (which is plot of Final Fight 2). With Guy (Rena's fiance and
Genryusai's student) off training and unable to help, Maki enlists the help of
and Carlos Miyamoto to
assist her on her mission to save them. In Italy, Maki fights and defeats Rolento.
After defeating him, she questions him on her family's location and Rolento
reveals that they are being held hostage by Retu in Japan. Maki rushes back to
Japan to rescue them. During the final battle with the Retu, Maki kicks Retu
with so much strength that Retu couldn't block, and the powerful kick sends
him flying out of the dojo window to his death.
After the events of Final Fight 2, Maki is on a mission to find and
defeat Guy in order to become the next Bushin-ryu successor. She finds Guy and
challenges him, but their fight ends abruptly when they both sense M.
Bison's presence. Bison attacks them and Maki becomes stunned by one of
his attacks, but Guy saves her an causes Bison to withdraw. After the battle,
she hesitantly thanks Guy and states that she might not be ready to become the
next Bushin-ryu successor, but she will be when they meet again.

Wow, Maki must
her cloths from the same store as Mai... Heh. Even though
her look may not be the most original, Maki is an awesome character simply
because she's pretty much the female version of Guy (who is a total badass if
you didn't know).
was quite a surprise to see Maki cross over to a high profile fighting game like
Capcom VS SNK 2, from a more humble and lesser known SNES exculsive, Final Fight 2...
but a treat none the less, especially for those of us that actually played FF2. ;)
Maki's transition from beat-em-up to fighting game was very accurate, as she
quite a few
of her moves from Final Fight 2, but also offers a unique and innovative fighting style to the games she appeared in. And yeah, she's
definitely a hottie as well. :)
