Benimaru's appearance is based off of Jean Pierre Polnareff from the manga and anime series - Jojo's Bizzare Adventure, similarly in a way that Fighting Vipers' Bahn is based off of Jotaro Kujo from the same series. Ironically, Capcom, SNK's well known rival, made a Jojo's Bizarre Adventure fighting game.

Series AppearancesEdit

Benimaru has appeared in every KOF game, from KOF 94, right up to KOF XIII, including KOF Neowave. He has not, however, appeared in the KOF Maximum Impact spin-off series. In KOF 03 and KOF XI, instead of wearing his usual black vest, he wore a leopard-skin vest.

Other AppearancesEdit

Benimaru has appeared in plenty of other games outside the King Of Fighters series since his debut. They are:

Capcom Vs. SNK: Millennium Fight 2000

Capcom Vs. SNK Pro

Capcom Vs. SNK 2: Mark Of The Millennium

SNK Vs. Capcom: Card Fighters Clash

SNK Vs. Capcom: Card Fighters Clash 2 Expand Edition

Benimaru was allegedly planned for SNK Vs. Capcom: SVC Chaos, but was replaced with Shiki from Samurai Shodown.

Apparently, Benimaru's hair stands up by itself due to the static electricity that charges through his body.

Though Benimaru does not appear in the Maximum Impact games, one of Soiree Meira's alternate outfits in Maximum Impact 2 resembles Benimaru, though the hair is much shorter and red as opposed to blonde.
