Tsugumi Sendo is a high
school student from Osaka who was taught wrestling by her father, Kantetsu from an
early age. However, she is secretly ashamed of this, especially after she was
told by a boy she had a crush that woman wrestlers are "unfeminine",
and wants to drop out of her wrestling training.
After butting heads with her overbearing father, Kantetsu will allow her to drop
out, but only under the condition that she brings a decisive victory in the King
of Fighters tournament. Despite her original hatred for wrestling, she has come
to enjoy fighting as she began to win matches. Some of Tsugumi's move names
reference her hometown, like "Tsūtenkaku Driver", "Naniwa
Lariat", and "Okonomiyaki-Ire".
