Hwa Jai (ホア・ジャイ, Hoa Jai; หัว ใจ in Thai language) is a playable character from the Fatal Fury and The King of Fighters series. He first appeared in the original Fatal Fury game and appeared as a playable character once more in The King of Fighters XIII.


The Legacy of Hwa JaiEdit

  • Fatal Fury: King of Fighters (1991)
  • Garou Densetsu: The Legend of Wild Wolf (2006)
  • Garou Densetsu Special
  • The King of Fighters XIII (2010-2011)


Hwa Jai longs to be the best Muay Thai fighter there is. To accomplish that, he must defeat his sworn enemy Joe Higashi. After being defeated by Joe in 1992's KOF, he and Joe eventually became friends. Now, he realizes that life isn't about winning and he and Joe support each other all the time.

His KoF counterpart is rougher than his Fatal Fury counterpart, talking in a more brutal and intimidating manner. Even though he claims to have changed, he is rather cocky of his skills and is ready to start a fight at any time. His friendship with Joe has also been abandoned, thinking that he still needs to defeat his rival in a match. Considering that Raiden is "acting" like a villain in order to partake in the tournament, it can't be truly ruled out that Hwa Jai isn't just faking his cruelty in The King of Fighters for the sake of giving Kim something to work on.

Theme SongEdit

Along with Kim Kaphwan and Raiden, his theme is "Tame a Bad Boy" from The King of Fighters XIII.



  • In Fatal Fury, Joe's and Hwa Jai's normal attacks are different, unlike KoF XIII.
