Template:CharacterInfoboxKhushnood Butt, named Marco Rodriguez (マルコ・ロドリゲス, Maruko Rodorigesu) in Japan, is a character in the Fatal Fury series of fighting games, who was first introduced in Garou: Mark of the Wolves. His role in the game is to substitute Ryo Sakazaki as the new Kyokugenryu Karate practitioner. His name was probably changed to avoid confusion with mixed martial artist Ricco Rodriguez. Since his introduction, Khushnood created a great fuzz, with several fans wanting SNK to use him in The King of Fighters series or in the next Garou. Creators state that he is the most durable fighter of the new cast.

He was voiced by Hikaru Hanada, who also voices Tizoc.


Khushnood Butt was an apprentice of Ryo Sakazaki. When he became a black belt, he opened a dojo in Brazil and started teaching Kyokugenryu Karate. To prove the might of the martial art, Khushnood entered the "King of Fighters: Maximum Mayhem" tournament. When he returned, he learned that all of his best students got beaten up by the "Gym Buster". Hearing that, he now seeks the maniac.


Khushnood's personality balances between goofy and serious. He is reckless, but also wise. He looks up to his master and respects him very much. He considers Tizoc to be a worthy adversary.
