Tizoc, otherwise known as Griffon Mask (グリフォンマスク) or The Griffon in the Japanese version, is a character from both the Fatal Fury and The King of Fighters series. He started out in Garou: Mark of the Wolves. He replaced Raiden for the The King of Fighters 2003 lineup.

He is voiced by Hikaru Hanada.


Tizoc's gimmick in wrestling is his life. He loves to be the hero of poor children and even acts and speaks outside the ring the same way he does when he is fighting. Because of this, Tizoc is very over the top: seemingly having a naturally loud voice and a screaming habit. Mainly using this to scream his move names in an exaggerated way or speaking to befit his flamboyant poses

Fighting Style

Tizoc fights with a style derived from Pro Wrestling. He uses several real moves such as drop kicks, clotheslines, suplexes, a highly exaggerated Hurricanranna, and a highly exaggerated piledriver among others.
