BIO:

Fascinated by ninjas since his childhood, his hard work and training have paid off, allowing him to acquire amazing ninjutsu/ninpo skills. Founder of the “Brazilian Ninja Arts” Dojo, Bandeiras unfortunately has no students at the moment. He hopes his participation in the KOF tournament will remedy this situation and bring a lot of students to his dojo.

(Antonio) Bandeiras Hattori is a pretty cool design. First of all, there aren't many Brazilian ninjas around... so it's nice to see something new. His cool / nerdy personality is also something unique to KOF. And while semi-annoying at times, at least he backs it up with solid and interesting fighting techniques. What struck me first about some of his special moves was the epic homage to Samurai Shodown characters. He's got Ukyo's rapid fire slashes, along with Hanzo's "disappear into a log" move & spinning suplex! Cool SNK fan service, that. Bandeiras also has some pretty unique normal moves.

Visually, Bandeiras is easily one of the best / coolest new designs to debut in KOF XIV. I could see him easily returning in a future KOF installment and I hope he does... (and I definitely wouldn't say that about every KOF14 newcomer). On that note... "something" about his design feels like it needs to develop a bit further.
