In this Korean name, the family name is "Kim".

Kim Jae Hoon (Korean: 김재훈, Japanese: キム・ジェイフン) is a character from the Fatal Fury series. He was first introduced as a playable character in Garou: Mark of the Wolves. He is one of the children of Kim Kaphwan, alongside his brother Kim Dong Hwan.

He is voiced by Hiroki Asakawa.

Personality

Jae Hoon is very serious, diligent in his studies, and a charismatic man. He has a strong sense of justice, just like his father. He also has a gentle side to him as he likes the sight of small animals such as rabbits, hamsters, or martens. It's this dedication and compassion which has earned him his own fanclub.

In the anime, the personalities of the brothers were reversed, as Dong Hwan was shyer while Jae Hoon was more outgoing.

Powers

  • Pyrokinesis - Jae Hoon can control fire.
    • Fire Attack - Jae Hoon can deliver kicks flowing with fire.
    • Phoenix - By kicking in an ascending motion, Jae Hoon can summon a phoenix of fire from the ground.

Skills

  • Acrobatics - Jae Hoon is very proficient in acrobatics, using it with his Tae Kwon Do skills.
  • Advanced Kicking - Thanks to his Tae Kwon Do training, Jae Hoon is able to do very fast multiple chain kicks.

Fighting Style

While Jae Hoon's style is a spitting image of his father's fighting style, he infuses fire on his Hienzan, Hangetsuzan, Ryuusei Raku, and Hou-Ou Kyaku techniques. Jae Hoon can either end with a slide or a fire-infused kick to trick his opponent using his father's annoying Hishou Kyaku technique, uses a lot of weight while using his father's Neri Chagi (with a high-angle variation), plus he slams his opponent with his Shakka Shuu kick combination, making him inflict a considerable amount of extra hurt than his father. If timed right, Jae Hoon can be scarier than his father as he can follow up his Houyaku Tenshou Kyaku with his father's Hou-Ou Kyaku if your execution and power level management is good enough.
