Wan-Fu is a warrior king from China. He always observes to see if he could over-throw the current ruler. He heads to Japan to see if he can find warriors worthy to be his men. But not satisfied with anyone, he comes to back to China. The following year, he was told by one of his prophets that an egg existed. This egg, in exchange for one's soul, would allow the person to rule the world. Hearing this, Wan-Fu heads to Japan once more. It's unknown what happened to him. He uses a huge stone pillar as his weapon in Samurai Shodown 2, and in Samurai Shodown 1, he used the scimitar as his weapon.

Wan Fu's original debut in Samurai Shodown was a bit boring... he was pretty much just labeled as "the fat guy with the scimitar". However, his "redesign" in SS2 turned out much better. He now fought with a huge stone slab of a weapon and packed a set of rock hard abs... yeah, he way much cooler looking. His fighting style was also completely original to fighting games and he had some particularly hard-hitting moves.

I didn't think he'd ever make a comeback in the series after SS2, but lo & behold he returned in Samurai Shodown 6. However, his new weapon & moves are a bit uninspiring and he seems to have put back on the pot belly. What's with switching your weapons all the time Wan Fu??? Geez, make up your mind and stick to it!! lol. I think any Samurai Shodown fan would agree that SS2 was his best appearance. On a side note, his SS2 stage music was freakin' epic... that tune still gets stuck in my head.
