Trivia Edit

  • He is the smallest and weakest playable character by far.
  • He resembles the playable character from the game DJ Boy, another side-scrolling beat 'em up. This arcade game, developed by Kaneko, was later published by Sega on the Mega Drive. In fact, Sega changed the in-game name of the character from "Sammy" in Bare Knuckle 2 (Japanese release) to "Eddie" in Streets of Rage 2 (U.S. release);
  • Since he wields the Chi of Fire, he is only character in BKIII/SoR3 that can throw Big Ben (Bongo in The Japanese version).
  • His clothes show fondness of yellow and black like his older brother, Adam Hunter.
  • He is the master of lifting and Tae Kwon Do
