Also known as "The
Griffon", Tizoc is a famous wrestler in Second Southtown who gained
favoritism amongst the children audience since his debut. He always donates his
winning to an orphanage and fights to inspire others.
Over time, it seemed like no one could beat Tizoc, until a mysterious man
appeared and soundly defeated him. Tizoc was devastated by the loss and spent
two years searching for the man (rumored to be Gato's
father). By the time of Garou: Mark of the Wolves, Tizoc saw himself as a
washed up has-been, and entered the King of Fighters tournament to regain his
passion for the ring and to find the man who defeated him.
During the events
of King Of Fighters 2003, Tizoc is an up and coming superstar in
professional wrestling and joins the Fatal Fury team after being invited by Terry
Bogard. Terry's brother Andy,
was unavailable at the time since he was tending to his younger student (Hokutomaru)
in Japan. In King of Fighters XI, B.
Jenet requests that he join her team, and he accepts. Tizoc enters simply
for the "heart" of the fight and is not concerned with winning the
prize money. In The King of Fighters XIV, a new challenger known as The
King of Dinosaurs strongly resembles Tizoc. Is he the same person?

Tizoc is me hero.
In MOTW's story, it's suggested that Tizoc is underestimated as a legitimate
fighter because he's a pro-wrestler. And after he hicks a character's ass, he
pretty much compliments them and/or their unique fighting style. What a guy. As the lone grappler
and "big guy" of Garou: Mark of the Wolves, Tizoc holds an important role.
He's no stereotypical pro wrestler... Tizoc has a very interesting, original theme,
and shows off memorable and hard-hitting moves. Typically, a masked
wrestler can only have so much personality, but
like King from Tekken,
Tizoc pulls it off thanks to his badass moveset, awesome super moves and epic
voice. I don't know what the hell he's saying half the time, but whatever he
says, it always sounds EPIC. lol.
It was awesome to
see him crossover to the King of Fighters series in KOF '03... I
definitely wasn't expecting it. Tizoc is one of my favorite
characters to use in every game he's appeared in. I hope SNK brings him back in future games as
well. Tizoc is an excellent design all around. I only wish SNK used him to his
Style / Moveset
