Jeffry McWild




A fisherman who lives on the Australian coast, Jeffry lived in the salty tang of the tides and the hot sun. The most skillful fisherman of his village, he has an engaging personality. He was bested by only one opponent - the giant, eight-meter long, man-eating Satan Shark. They fought several battles, and finally met in their ultimate match. Jeffry was routed and his boat wrecked, but he somehow managed to recover as he hovered on the verge of death. He entered the World Fighting Tournament with a vow to build a new boat and do battle with the shark again.

There's no arguing with the big black man in Virtua Fighter. He looked like one of the toughest dudes in the game. Jeffry was a cool and ultra-effective character in the VF series... at least for the greater portion of it. I found it odd and upsetting that they decided to completely change Jeffry's iconic stance in VF4.. -___- Why TAKE AWAY one of the most visually defining parts of the character? His fighting stance? And epic beard? Well at least they got that right.

Jeffry's VF4 appearance wasn't bad, but Sega decided to give him some really dumb win quotes... which pretty much killed his personality. Jeffry is portrayed as if he can't speak English at all. in VF4, he actually says (and I quote) "Uuooohuhuhuuu, IIIII'm the wiieeeanaaargphhh!" C'mon Sega. Couldn't think of something more unoriginal? Jeffry's VF5 appearance didn't do a whole lot for his design either, besides making him look tougher and bigger as a character. Sega could've done so much more with him. Even Jeffry's VF5 moveset lacks flash and depth. At least... Jeffry still has all of his memorable moves from his earliest days. In general, he's a good design... just very underused and under-developed.
