'Outlaw' is a playable character introduced in Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage and its sequel. He is available as downloadable content in the first game, in both games he is used for Dream and Challenge modes and has no ending or story paths of his own, though he can play the missions of others in free mode or co-op mode.

Overview Edit

Outlaw is a nonspecific character who acts as a culmination of the various outlaws found within the Fist of the North Star universe. His attacks all come from various techniques and martial arts used by "small fry characters" in the manga, usually to stop heroes such as Kenshiro.
In Outlaw's accompanying DLC mission, Wasteland Rescue, when the mission is played with him, Outlaw has to protect villagers from KING while helping some fellow punks defect from KING. If they are rescued, Outlaw will receive a motorcycle as thanks.
The challenge, Bad Science is also altered if Outlaw is played, instead of fighting Jagi, Outlaw will instead fight Kenshiro who has been misled by Amiba in his Toki disguise. After battling Outlaw, Kenshiro realizes he was tricked and battles against the Fake Toki.

Characterization Edit

While a composite of all the various small fry in the manga, Outlaw is still given a little bit of characterization. He is a wild man who lives for the moment and does whatever he wants regardless of the consequences.
Like many outlaws, he fights dirty and goes out of his way to humiliate his opponents. He is also lecharous, asking Colonel if he can borrow one of his ladies and thanking his luck when fighting Mamiya. The unique DLC missions for Outlaw indicates he has sympathy for fellow outlaws and is willingly to help others if there is something in it for him. The Bad Science mission has him team up with Kenshiro to escape the Village of Miracles.
