G-Mantle / The Mask


G-Mantle ("G" stands for "game") is a mysterious character who appears in several SNK games and advertisements. He was originally used as a mascot for Neo Geo before the likes of Terry Bogard and Kyo Kusanagi. He makes cameo appearances in a wide variety of SNK games, including: Blue's Journey, Cyber-Lip, The Super Spy, Burning Fight, Fatal Fury, Fatal Fury 3, Robo Army, King of The Monsters 2, KOF '97, KOF XI, KOF '94: Rebout and KOF '98: Ultimate Match.

In Card Fighters Clash, G-Mantle AKA "The Mask" is a mysterious card-fighter who shows up in random locations within card battle arenas to battle the player and holds many rare cards. He is never heard talking, only laughing.

SNK Vs. Capcom: Card Fighters Clash DS, The King of Fighters 2000 (striker)


Page Updated:  Apr. 7th, 2023

G-Mantle is a mysterious SNK / NeoGeo icon who you may or may not have seen appear in various advertisements and games. "The Mask" was a pretty cool and mysterious opponent in the original Card Fighters Clash. He was a key opponent to earn rare cards in the game, and showed up in random areas in the Card Fighters world. As a Card Fighters Clash player, I was always happy to see him and battle against him (since he was somewhat difficult to find).

G-Mant'es appearance as a striker in The King of Fighters 2000 was unexpected, but a pretty cool tribute to old school SNK fans who remember him. Sadly, his striker ability wasn't very strong. lol.
