Franco Bash is one of the heroes from Fatal Fury series.
Franco is a former heavy kickboxing champion who is unbeaten in his fighting career. He probably retired to support his family and became an aircraft mechanic at Nancheng Airport to continue to support them.
In order to encourage the champion to fight in the tournament, Yamazaki kidnapped Franco's son, Junior. Franco reluctantly became his right hand until his son returned to him after Yamazaki's defeat.
As his family encouraged his fighting career to officially come back, he participated in the next game.
Franco was introduced as a tragic 'hero' who was searching for his son and would not stop at any cost. After finding his son, he becomes comic relief used by SNK and his personality becomes somewhat goofy and very noisy.
- He looks vaguely similar to Capcom's Mike Haggar however this is merely a coincidence.
