How Bandeiras joined the Tourney
Fascinated by ninjas since his childhood, his hard work and training have paid off, allowing him to acquire amazing ninjutsu skills. Founder of the “Brazilian Ninja Arts” Dojo, Bandeiras unfortunately has no students at the moment. He hopes his participation in the KOF tournament will remedy this situation and bring a lot of students to his dojo.
In his team's ending, he travels to Japan to advertise his new ninja school, not realizing the country is more modern and civilized than he was led to believe. He fails to follow his fellow teammate's advice and ends up getting arrested for causing a scene.
Determined to get a student for his “Brazilian Ninja Arts” Dojo, Bandeiras finds a group of Gorin High students. He tears up an expulsion report written by Natsu Ayuhara and offers to train her in Brazilian ninjutsu.
