Mudman is a shaman from New Guinea and uses "Hua Hua Spiritual" fighting style. He is considered a holy warrior of his tribe, and fights in the name of his god, Fah Fa, to rid evil in the world. He resembles New Guinean headhunters seen in photographs of the island chain. He is also a homage to Daijiro Morohoshi's manga, Mudmen.

Mudman was a bizarre design from the get-go. He was the first "freak" character of the World Heroes series, and perhaps one of the most memorable designs in the series, in my opinion. There are parts of this design that I like, and parts that I dislike, but he definitely made the World Heroes roster a bit more interesting.

I thought Mudman would be left in the vaults of SNK's history and be forever forgotten, but to my surprise (and everyone else's), SNK brought him back in Neo Geo Battle Coliseum! It was pretty epic seeing him actually make a comeback, with an all new 2D sprite to boot. At the end of the day, I'm still not incredibly fond of his overall look or fighting style... but I give the design credit for being original.
