Hwa Jai (ホア・ジャイ) is a powerful, Thailand based Muay Thai fighter.

Story (in the Fatal Fury Saga)[edit]

FF Hwa.png

While Hwa Jai was one of Thailand’s best fighters, he was bested in several international tournaments by the overconfident yet (superiorly trained) Joe Higashi. The two became fierce rivals with Joe always being the victor.

This prompted prompted him to start cheating by drinking a strange fluid that boosted his physical attributes exponentially. Worrying he would have been found out, Hwa Jai moved to Southtown, where many fighters reside and none would care about him using the drink. Entering Geese Howard’s King of Fighters tournament, Hwa Jai sought his vengeance against Joe. He faced off against his arrogant nemesis once more resulting in (despite his training and his drink’s power boost) Joe coming out the winner.

Shamed, Hwa Jai returned to the Thai jungle once more. Hwa Jai now lives a normal life training Muay Thai to those who, like he previously, strive to be the best. Eventually Hwa Jai’s rivalry with Joe ended with the two being sparring partners, and even friends, after Joe avenges him from Wolfgang Krauser, who left Hwa Jai in the hospital before the second tournament

Hwa Jai is one of the few fighters who only appeared as a boss character in the first Fatal Fury game (Fatal Fury) and has not appeared as a playable character since.
