' Atsushi Suedo (末堂厚) - A 3rd dan Shinshinkai student, he fought Baki in a karate tournament, representing Doppo's Shinshinkai karate, and was defeated by Baki. His role is greatly downsized in the anime TV series, where his fight with Baki was omitted. He is somewhat skilled, but he does not compete in the tournament. When Katou vandalized the Shinshinkai building, Suedo was one of many who tried to defeat him. Like the rest of his friends, he failed miserably. He later has a fight with Dorian in the Convicts saga, to avenge Katou's defeat, but he fails and is nearly killed by falling from a rollercoaster. He reappears in Son of Ogre, alive and well.
