Hong Xiao-Hu (洪 小虎, Hon Shaofū; "Xiǎo-Hǔ Hóng") also known as "The Man-Eating Tiger of Sichuan" (四川の人食い虎, Sìchuān no Hito-gui Tora) is a Chinese affiliated fighter within the Kengan matches and the main fighter of Iwami Heavy Industries.
Hong Xiao-Hu is a muscular man with a very well defined physique. He has a ball of black hair that covers his head and ears with a long queue that falls below his back. While fighting, Hong wears an attire consisting of only black Chinese-style martial artist's pants with black martial arts shoes.
Hong appears to be a very confident man, especially due to his unique ability. However, when faced with certain defeat or a situation he deems embarrassing, he quickly loses his composure.
Lined up to face Mikazuchi Rei in a Kengan match, Hong initially matched his opponent until he was forced to reveal his trump card. Being quickly taken down anyway, the referee called his defeat but Hong refused and tried to resume fighting. Just then, Kurayoshi Rino walked into the fighting area and put him down for good by switching off his unique skill, rendering him completely incapacitated.
Power & Abilities
Hong Xiao-Hu is a powerful combatant with one of his main strengths being his physical attacking speed. Prior to fighting Mikazuchi Rei, his only loss was in his 12th Kengan match against the Fang of Metsudo; however, he was one of the few people that had fought the Fang and come out without being incapacitated.
Jiyi Quan (極意拳, Jí Yì Quán; lit. Ultimate-Intention Fist): Hong is a practitioner of Jiyi Quan, being a very proficient user. He is able to use the style's secret art which allows the user to control the secretion of opioids in their brain; Hong uses this unique skill to completely negate his sense of pain. With his sense of pain nullified, Hong enters a berserker-like state where he attacks without regard to his overall health. This allows Hong to move seemingly unimpeded even with injuries as severe as broken thigh bones and shattered knees.
