Baki is a mysterious martial artist who has only been entering tournaments (and possibly has only been training) for a few years yet wins every match, frequently with a single strike. He's a classic mystery martial artist who lives only for the fight, always training for the next contest and truly only happy when someone's trying to kill him.
In addition to traditional tournaments, he is also champion of Tokyo's underground circuit, a no-holds-barred arena where fighters are routinely crippled or even killed. There Baki must face his most ruthless opponent, a man who's "cord cutter" technique consists of reaching into an opponent's body and snapping their nerves and tendons. After a long drawn out fight, Baki wins, is patched together by the doctors, and remains champion.
