SNK Wiki

Hokutomaru (北斗丸ほくとまる) is a character in the Fatal Fury series. He first appeared in Garou: Mark of the Wolves as the disciple of Andy Bogard, and he is the youngest character in that game.

He was voiced by Junko Takeuchi.


Hokutomaru is a boy who grew up in nature; his best friends are the mountain monkeys near his training grounds. He knows nothing of the civilized world, being excited and confused by life in a big city. He is a brash kid who doesn't like to be treated as a child. He's very noisy and often acts before thinking, but he has a strong will. Though he is obedient to his master and admires Andy, Hokutomaru clashes with his "big sister" Mai.


  • Pyrokinesis - Using his ninja powers, Hokutomaru can throw fire tinted kunai and shuriken and envelop his body in fire (he burns himself sometimes). Using exploding devices or maybe his pyrokinetic powers, Hokutomaru can also teleport.

Fighting Style

His fighting style is considered by some an amalgam of Andy and Mai's fighting styles. He uses Andy's Kuhadan and Mai Shiranui's weapon throwing. He is quick and unpredictable, having some of the fastest attacks in the game.
