Joe Higashi has Japanese roots, but his fighter journey began in Thailand, where he learned all the traditional techniques and later became a champion in Muay Thai Boxing.

He met Terry and Andy in South Town and has remained good friends ever since, even though, as time went by, Joe started to take battle lightly and become conceited.

The Young Champ of Muay Thai had a long rivalry with Hwa Jai. However, they became friends after Terry wasted Wolfgang Krauser.


Joe was born in Japan but spent most of his time in Thailand, where he studied Muay Thai. After some time, Joe has become a hardy man who lives for training and fighting. After a while, he became an arrogant man who considers himself the best in everything, ready to challenge everyone he meets and not serious about fights.


Joe uses all traditional Muay Thai moves and combos with hurricane summoning.


Joe wears a japan flag headband and gym shorts and wraps his fists in bandages.
