|~ Lucky Glauber's Winning Battle.|
Lucky Glauber is a character in The King of Fighters series. He first appeared in The King of Fighters '94 as a member of the American Sports Team. His prototype design was based on the character Hakim in the martial arts film, Game of Death. His current design exists due to the plainness of the original though his karate stayed as a remnant to his tribute, although there is speculation that his design was also inspired by Dunk Dream ("Street Hoop" or "Street Slam" on Western shores), a sports game for the Neo-Geo, by Data East.
Lucky is a karate champion who is also a former professional basketball player who is asked by his friend, Heavy D!, to form a team with him in the King of Fighters tournament. Aside from his desire to help bolster his friend's confidence, Lucky joins the tournament to test his fighting ability. In their ending, he says he'll continue street fighting.
He, along with the rest of the members of the American Sports Team, have a running gag in the history of KOF which involves their invitations being stolen by other participants. Similarly, in the backstory of Neo Geo Battle Coliseum, Shermie defeats Lucky and takes his invitation to the tournament.
Makoto Mizoguchi also takes his invitation by defeating him in KOF Maximum Impact Regulation A.
Even when fighting, Lucky is always seen smiling around. He is very cheerful towards everyone and likes to fight very much.
- The color palettes used on his design are direct homage of several NBA teams uniforms. His default color scheme represents the L.A. Lakers, which is the team that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar used to play. Other colors represent the Chicago Bulls (Red and White), Seattle Sonics (Green and Yellow) and San Antonio Spurs (Black and White).
