Ryuji Yamazaki (山崎 竜二) is a psychotic criminal from southtown who is best known for his unhonorable fighting style and his mental unbalance. He worked with the Jin Twins to protect them and the scrolls of immortality in Fatal Fury 3.

Story (in the KOF Orochi Saga)[edit]

KOF Orochi Yamazaki.png

Ryuji Yamazaki was offered a chance to join the King of Fighters 1997 tournament by Geese Howard through his henchman Billy Kane. Although he declined at first, he reconsidered later and formed the '97 Special Team together with Billy and Blue Mary.

Due to the very different characteristics of the participating fighters and the constant fighting between Billy and Ryuji, this team only joined the (canonial) tournament once in 1997 and did not accomplish much storywise. But contrary to this, the '97 Special Team keeps on appearing in dream matches throughout the KOF saga.

Ryuji Yamazaki didn't join another KOF tournament for several years after 1997.
