Captain Kidd is
a pirate who enjoys women, casinos, sea, gold and wine... like any
pirate should. After he robbed all of the treasures he could find, he joined the
World Heroes tournament. He is based off of William "Captain" Kidd.
Kidd is a fairly generic-looking pirate... but he's probably one of the most easily-likeable characters from World Heroes (while some others are more of an acquired taste). Capt. Kidd is far less outlandish than some of the other World Heroes character designs and actually seems like a proper fighter. The bloke can throw an actual punch... I can respect
While there's nothing particularly
original or exciting about Captain Kidd's appearance (I mean, he just looks like any common pirate with some status), C. Kidd's special moves and
projectiles were pretty original for the time, and cool to look at, at least. On that note, he's got one of the cleanest sprites in the WH series IMO. I think he would've made a pretty decent guest character in one of the SNK / crossovers. For the record, Ruby Heart and Capt. Kidd would make a pretty cool team. They even
match, color-wise. Maybe someday, Kidd!
