    Short summary describing this character.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    Balrog was once an amazing boxing champion and skilled fighter. He was banned from boxing permanently for injuring his opponents and killing one of them. M. Bison then found him and offered him a position in the Shadaloo criminal organization. Balrog accepted this and worked his way hard to the top, eventually becoming Bison's heavy-duty enforcer. While doing jobs for M. Bison, Balrog killed Dhalsim's elephant with only one Gigaton Punch. In one mission, Balrog was sent to kill Birdie.

    Although he did not know the reason why, Balrog did as what he was told and went anyway. Birdie told Balrog about the Psycho Drive, and Balrog agreed to help Birdie find the weapon, thinking he could make a profit from finding it. When the Psycho Drive exploded, Balrog noticed that he didn't get his pay recently. In the second World Warrior tournament, the winner would face off against the Four Devas of Shadoloo and Bison sent Balrog first because of his powerful punches and violent behavior. When M. Bison was killed at the hands of the unmerciful Akuma, ownership of Shadaloo organization was given to the former prize fighter. Unfortunately, he ended up ruining the entire organization in no time. After the fall of Shadaloo, Balrog became nothing more than a bum on the streets before Bison was resurrected and he and Vega were re-recruited in the syndicate.  At the end of the tournament Balrog is seen raiding the S.I.N. building in search of money. Instead he finds a young girl who seems to have some sort of power. Balrog thinking that the girl has some value, takes her with him.
