Reiji Oogami (大神おおがみ 零児れいじ) is a character who is introduced in The King of Fighters EX2: Howling Blood as a member of the Hero Team. He is one of the keepers of the Ten Sacred Treasures, the "Hetsu Mirror" (辺津へつ かがみ).

He is voiced by Tetsu Inada.

Story[]

Reiji shows up with a King of Fighters invitation at the home of Kyo Kusanagi, who is living in America. As a representative for Chizuru Kagura, he asks Kyo to join him as his teammate in the championship competition so that they can investigate the waves of mystery that are interfering with the "Orochi" seal.

Personality[]

Like Chizuru, he is focused and serious when it comes to his clan's duties. However, Reiji is more laid back and optimistic, especially with his daughter.

Powers[]

  • Illusions - Like Chizuru, Reiji can project mirror images of himself to attack opponents.
  • Explosive Punch - Reiji can end one of his desperation moves with a fiery punch.
  • Fiery Kick - Reiji can channel a fiery aura around his legs and jump kick his opponent.

Fighting Style[]

Reiji uses his skills in Ancient Martial Arts to fight.

Music[]

  • Goodbye Esaka (GBA version) - The King of Fighters EX2

Etymology[]

  • The name Reiji means "zero, nought" (零) (rei) and "child, infant, kid, young of animals, tot" (児) (ji).
  • Reiji's surname Oogami means "big, great" (大) (o) and "god, deity" (神) (kami/gami).

Trivia[]

  • For some time, Reiji was rumored to be Chizuru's husband; however, they are actually just friends, and representatives of the same clan. This is why Reiji's daughter is dressed in a similar outfit to Chizuru. Its also possible that he's either married to someone else, or he may not be married at all, as he was seen flirting with Jun Kagami in the Hero Team's cutscene.
