Bandeiras Hattori is one of the heroes from The King of Fighters series.
Fascinated by ninjas since his childhood, and his hard work and training paid off, earning him amazing ninjutsu skills.
Bandeiras is the founder of "Brazil Ninja Art" Dojo and currently has no students. While he hopes that his participation in the KOF tournament will solve this problem and allow many students to participate in his dojo.
At the end of his team's, he traveled to Japan to advertise his new ninja school without realizing that the country was more modern and civilized than he thought. So Bandeiras failed to act on the advice of his teammates and was eventually arrested for causing a scene.
Bandeiras is clearly proud of his skills and is eager to show them off to the world. But he believes himself to be a true ninja and tries to act the part, and while he clearly has the skills, he ultimately comes off as being an obsessed fanboy who's not nearly as knowledgeable on ninjas and Japanese culture as much as he would like to believe.
- During his original reveal trailer, his name was spelt "Banderas", which means "flags" in Spanish. His name was later changed to "Bandeiras" in subsequent trailers and the final game, which is Portuguese for the same word.
