Art of FightingEditEdit

Kasumi is the daughter of Ryuhaku Todoh, the first enemy in the original Art of Fighting.

Kasumi grew up learning the Todoh school of Aikido and Kobujutsu, taught to her by her father. As her family's sole heir, she does all she can to stand up for the Todoh way. When Ryuhaku stayed atSouthtown to settle an old score with a man named Takuma Sakazaki, Kasumi remained in her house, waiting for her father's return. A couple of months later, she got some bad news: Ryuhaku had been defeated by Ryo Sakazaki, Takuma's son and hasn't been seen since. She decided to fight Ryo and anybody else in order to avenge her father. Unfortunately enough, her mother, Mizuho, did not like that idea. But she eventually makes peace with him and returns to Japan with her mother.

The King of FightersEditEdit

In the 1996 tournament, Kasumi is referred to the event by King. She greets and tests her other teammate, Mai, through a short martial arts scuffle. Overjoyed to participate in a grand event with worthy teammates, she becomes a member of the Womens Team. After she left to search for her father, Kasumi clashes with the antagonistic waitress, Xiangfei, before the 1999 tournament. By chance, King and Mary stop their fight and ask them to be their teammates. She is called by Yuri to be a member the next year and gracefully accepts.

Thinking to have spotted her father during the 2000 tournament, Kasumi remains unreachable until The King of Fighters XI whenMalin gets in contact with her. Once Kasumi reports Takuma's hospitalized state to him, Eiji interests are perked and he agrees to be a part of their team. Forming the Anti Kyokugenryu team, the triocontinue to spy on their rivals throughout the tournament. In their team's ending, Kasumi seems more focused on finding her father over beating her rivals. But the three of them ended up being knocked out by an irritated King.


Kasumi is just like any teenage girl: she wants to enjoy her life. She loves her family very much and, when her father went missing, she wanted to restore his honor so her family would be together again. She had a relatively sheltered upbringing so she doesn't always know how to react to society's standards.


  • Cutting Projectile: She can fire a projectile of cutting energy from her hands.
  • Sense: She can sense the presence of people nearby.


  • English Proficiency - As of Art of Fighting 3, it is heavily implied that she can speak some conversational English. This skill is downplayed in the KOF series.
