- Yuda (ユダ Yuda )
- Yuda (also romanized as Juda) is the successor of Nanto Kōkaku Ken (南斗紅鶴拳, South Dipper Crimson Crane Fist) style and one of the Nanto Rokusei Ken (Six Holy Fists of Nanto), bearing the destiny of the "Star of Enchantment or Beauty" ((妖星, Yōsei) which is also referred to as the "Star of Betrayal" (裏切りの星, Uragiri no Hoshi).
- Known as the infamous traitor of the Nanto Rokusei Ken, Yuda betrayed them in order to ally himself with Raoh, along with 27 subordinate branches of Nanto Seiken. It was later revealed that Yuda was manipulated by Souther into doing so, and this consequently plunged the Nanto Rokusei Ken into chaos.
- In his vain and treacherous nature, Yuda keeps a harem of concubines who are forced to worship his beauty, and he is more than willing to sacrifice his underlings for his own advantage. It was revealed that Yuda kidnapped Mamiya on her 20th birthday, murdering her parents before her very eyes and making her part of his harem, until she eventually escaped. When Rei discovered this, he challenged Yuda to avenge Mamiya's honor. Yuda, himself, was hiding a deep-seated hatred towards Rei prior to the apocalypse, feeling that Rei's beautiful Nanto Suichō Ken had overshadowed his own fighting style.
- Aware that Rei had only days to live after his fight with Raoh, Yuda used his wiles to avoid confrontation until he believed Rei was on the brink of death. However, Rei's life was extended by Toki, making Yuda no match for his revitalized strength and spirit. Not to be outdone, Yuda had his minions destroy the dam in Mamiya's Village, using the flood to restrict Rei's graceful footwork and leaving him vulnerable to Yuda's long-range attacks. Yuda appeared to have turned the tables until Kenshiro sealed the dam, which allowed Rei to perform Hishō Hakurei and finish the fight.
- After his defeat, Yuda confesses his feelings of envy and admiration for his rival and kills himself with Rei's hands. In death, he concedes that Rei was always the stronger and more beautiful fighter.
- In the spinoff Rei Gaiden, we are introduced to a young Yuda after he has been named Nanto Kōkaku Ken successor, and his early rivalry with Rei. He baits Rei into a fight, which is interrupted by Rofu, and later plots Rei's demise with Amiba, who wishes to become Nanto Suichō Ken successor. Yuda's heart is stolen after witnessing Rei's Hien Ryūbu at the Cliff of Darkness.
- After the nuclear war, Yuda launches a siege on the city of Asgarzul, however, his thousand strong army is annihilated single-handedly by Rofu, and Yuda is left licking his wounds. He reappears at the Nanto Seitoden with the rest of the Nanto Rokusei Ken to watch Rei's battle with Rofu.
