'Give it up, baby. I've studied all ya moves!'
Kano (NOT to be confused with Kano Shuuya) is one of the newer members of the Hunger Games Avatars
community and secondary tribute under the mentoring factors of Hanzo/Scorpion. He has joined the community originally as a filler on the 26th July 2015, before shortly becoming one of the main tributes after an amusing RP session.
He is based of the ruthless mercenary and cutthroat leader of the Black Dragon faction with the same name in the Mortal Kombat series.
He has won his first victory in the Thirteenth Dedede Games 2 days after his induction. Up to date, he has won 22 victories so far in the HGA Community.
He currently has an account on Steam, which is the same account as Scorpion's, though he considers plans on earning a new account in case anything happens.
Relationships and Connections Edit
Along the way, Kano has made several allies and friendships during his time in the HGA Community. Like Scorpion, he is active during the GMT hours in the UK, hence being the same user. But it doesn't stop him from causing chaos and having fun.
Ocelot and Kaz: Despite brief encounters with one another, Kano met Kazuhira during an event few days ago before Revolver Ocelot joined the party as well. They usually refer to Kano either by his name, comrade, brother or mainly by Soldier. Ocelot and Kano currently get along very well, equally similar to a bromance.
Others: Other HGA Avatars and Members he have befriended includes Drei, Baron Blade, Gumball and Nicole Watterson, Handsome Husbando Endo, Emi, Deadpool, Birdy, Jesus, Pac, Bronn, Sophisto, Alma Elma, Neko and many others.
Game-Exclusive Connections Edit
Gotham Games (hosted by Endo/Scarecrow) - Injustice League: He is the sixth member of the Injustice League since his victory during the tenth Gotham Games (see Notable Events). As well as planning to take over Gotham and defeat the Justice League once and for all, he also has a somewhat friendly rivalry with Nepgear in waiting for the Champions Game (the latter being in the Justice League).
Augmented Games (hosted by Aali) - Lost And Damned (formerly Neutral): Kano's main faction is the Lost and the Damned, despite occasionally switching to the preferred side of his choice. He has yet to win a faction-based game, but managed to reach the top ten places several times - the highest place being second as a Damned Hunter. He has confirmed to step up as the Faction Leader on the 29th-30th September, as well as keeping the faction neutral from any alliances (he plans on doing what's best for the Lost and Damned). On the 11-12th October, both the Nekomata and the Lost and Damned took over the Halycon Facility during the Flashpoint.

Trivia and Other Notes Edit
- The Asuka CODA Prom Games on the 2nd August 2015 was the first time that Kano and Scorpion participated with their dates. The two tributes, in general, remain neutral towards another - but they have competed in the same Arena as one another (The Knight Rosabell Arena) during that event.
- The avatar picture folder related to him is currently over 375 files and counting.
- He is mainly referred to as Kano, though he have been so far dubbed as: Ser Kano (by Stannis/Looking Glass Knight), Mr. Kano (by Neko/Olivia), Cyborg Man (by Bork Lazer/Dean Ambrose), Robocop (by Ebola-chan), Soldier (mainly by Ocelot), Brother (JC), comically Laser Face (sometimes by Nicole Watterson) and K (by Pac). He is also referred as Cyborg by several others.
- Like Hanzo/Scorpion, he doesn't seem to mind particpating in both the 'four seas' or the 'eight seas' (a play on 4chan and 8chan respectively - those nicknames were first used by Southern, then Hanzo/Scorpion who now generally calls them 4flan and double-flan).
- It is rumored that he is considering on a new tripcode for both him and Hanzo/Scorpion altogether, to avoid confusion.
- When interacting without an image on 4chan (due to its 150 image limit), he usually dubs himself as either '>Kano' and/or '>Cutthroat Mercenary'.
- Some of his alternate forms when entering tournaments consist of Revolution Kano, Lewd Kano (the latter being exclusive to Mion Lewd Games), 420 Kano (exclusive to Shorty's Potfest Games) and Late Kano so far.
- His use of language can range from mild-strong to strong.
- It is surprisingly rare for the user behind Kano to fall asleep during a game, but he has done so a few times - some of those cases includes during the tenth Gotham Games and the Sixth Shadow Isles (both of which Kano won).
- When entering a HG series (in which he've already won one of the games), there is a chance that he will attempt to claim a sequence of [number]-time victories. He is dubbed upon those attempts as 'Returning Champion Kano' alongside other aliases (such as 'Returning Archduke Kano' in the Classy Games, or 'Injustice Kano' in the Gotham Games).
- Despite Kano not being given a set birthday, the birthday for the user behind him (or OOC/IRL mode) is set on the 24th September.
