Kung Fu Man is the very first M.U.G.E.N character ever made that comes pre-installed with every build of the engine as downloaded from Elecbyte's site. Conceived by Elecbyte themselves he was supposed to be a sample character that shows how things are done and is meant as a base for other creators to build their creations upon, but nonetheless he received a number of edits and imitations.
According to his sample introduction and ending sequences, KFM was going for a walk with his girlfriend when they were ambushed by Suave Dude and his minions. While KFM was fending off the minions his girlfriend was taken away which leads him to a mountainside temple with another KFM awaiting for him. After defeating his clone, KFM was about to finally rescue his girlfriend just to realize that - to this day - Elecbyte has yet to make a Suave Dude character, leaving threads hanging around.
Being a sample character, KFM is a simple 4-button character that can double jump, do basic chain combos, is capable of canceling basic moves (aside from his sweep kick) into specials, specials into super moves and a super move (Tripple Kung Fu Palm) into another super move (Smash Kung Fu Upper). He also as EX attacks that can be done at the cost of 1/3 of a single power stock.
The special moves have EX variants that can be done with doing the command with two button strengths.
