SNK Saturday T-Type: Whip 9:18 PM
With a crack of her weapon Voodoo, the appropriately named Whip appears on the scene, in search of her brother K'! Strangely enough, no one seems to mind that she's flailing a long whip around in all these fighting tournaments! Rumor has it, she's packing even more dangerous fire power...
Whip was one of the more interesting introductions of the KOF cast in the later installations and I'm pretty fond of her design. I always thought it was strange that she was dressed in an olive drab, military style outfit, yet she wields a very slick looking, sci-fi sort of whip. The jewelry she wears reveal her feminine side, while her uniform says "I'm all business!"
Protip: Her real name is Muchiko!
SNK Saturday T-Type: Joe Higashi 4:13 PM
The third member of the Fatal Fury trifecta and best friend to the Bogard brothers, Joe Higashi explodes into the ring with unsurpassed kick boxing prowess!!
Joe is by far and wide my favorite Muay Thai fighting game character and he's always been a blast to play as. He manages to be as funny as most goofy joke characters in other fighting games without having to sacrifice actual worth in combat. He's also got the best taunt ever!
Get out of the way, shrieking wanna-bes and eye-patched poseurs!! Here comes the real king of Muay Thai!!

SNK Saturday T-Type: Blue Mary 12:05 AM
Oops! A little late to the show! Due to unforeseen, quite shaking circumstances, this past SNK Saturday T-type was a little late.
This time, Py and I ended up going for the same character...Blue Mary! I became a big fan of Blue Mary when I encountered the Real Bout games. As such, I decided I would put her in the Real Bout get up. I always thought she was a great character to play as and a perfect counterpart for Terry. Finally, a girl who can hold her own in a fight! Can she tame the hungry wolf!?
SNK Saturday T-Type: Ryo Sakazaki 12:44 PM
Kicking off SNK SATURDAY with my wife, Py! We decided to both make a quick illustration of an SNK character every saturday to celebrate the slow approach of King of Fighters XII, a game we can't wait to get our hands on!
This week I chose Ryo Sakazaki! I remember fondly the days at the local skating ring, rocking all the awesome 90s arcade games. Art of Fighting was among them! Since then, Ryo has really distinguished himself from other fighting game karateka who will go nameless and has become one of my favorite KOF characters. ORA ORA!
