Jean Kujo (ジャン 紅條, Jan Kujō) is a French full-contact karateka and a brainwashed assassin for Judgement 6 who debuted in Virtua Fighter 5 R; alongside the return of Taka-Arashi. It appears that Jean is an exponent of some style of Karate and uses lots of charge-up attacks. He was known as Karateka before his actual name was publicly revealed. He is the second J6 Assassin to be part of the Virtua Fighter roster (after Goh Hinogami).


Virtua Fighter 5 R

Following Goh Hinogami's defeat at the hands of Jacky Bryant in the Fourth World Fighting Tournament, he now gets his chance to prove his worth. He soon decides to target Lion Rafale specifically, unaware that they used to be childhood friends.
