Tizoc, otherwise known as Griffon Mask (グリフォンマスク, Gurifon Masuku) or the Griffon in the Japanese version, is a character from both the Fatal Fury and King of Fighters series. He started out in the Fatal Fury game, Garou: Mark of the Wolves. He replaced Raidenfor the The King of Fighters 2003 lineup.
He is voiced by Hikaru Hanada.
Tizoc is a famed star in the wrestling world who has gained exceptional favoritism amongst the children audience since his debut. As time passed, it seemed like he would be unbeatable until a mysterious man suddenly appeared and soundly defeated him (the fan Q&A implies that the man is Gato's father). Devastated by the loss, he has spent the following two years searching for the man. Seeing himself as a washed up has-been by the time Mark of Wolves begins, he enters the King of Fighters tournament in order to gain his passion for the ring and to hopefully find the mystery man.
When the events of King Of Fighters 2003 occur, Tizoc is an up and coming superstar in the professional wrestling circuit and joins the Fatal Fury team after being invited by Terry Bogard himself after his brother, Andy, was unavailable since he was tending to his young student in Japan. B. Jenet summons him to join her team in KOF XI. He joins for the "heart" of the fight and is not concerned with winning the prize money.
Tizoc's gimmick in wrestling is his life. He loves to be the hero ofpoor children and even acts and speaks outside the ring the same way he does when he is fighting.
Tizoc fights with Pro Wrestling. He uses several real moves such as drop kicks, clotheslines, suplexes, a highly exaggerated Hurricanranna, a highly exaggerated piledriver and others.
