How El Blaze joined the Tourney

With his lightning fast Lucha Libre fighting style, his reputation spread - finally reaching the Judgement 6 tournament judges. They were impressed with the way he defeated wave after wave of opponents in the light-heavyweight division. As he watched Wolf dominate the heavyweight division, he burned with envy and jealousy. He knew the only way to combat these feelings was to prove that he was truly the best fighter in the world and he quickly signed up for the Fifth World Fighting Tournament.

Defeated by Wolf at the Sixth World Fighting Tournament, El Blaze trained long and hard for a rematch. Suddenly, he was spied on by a member of F.O.X.H.O.U.N.D., Liquid Snake.

How to unlock

For both methods, you must fight El Blaze at the Arena (Virtua Fighter 5). Alternatively, you can avoid clashing with him by wishing for him from Black Star Shenron, or purchasing him for 550 Smash Coins in the Smash Store. After defeating El Blaze, wishing for him from Black Star Shenron, or purchasing him from the Smash Store, the announcer will say "Someone else has joined the Tourney!" after a Smash Ball appears on the lower-right corner of the screen with a message saying "You can now use Wolf's Lucha Libre rival, El Blaze!" He will be seen left of Yoshitsugu, right of Mr. Ping, below Ramon and above Zarina.
