Volten (ボルテーン, Borutēn; Viz: Boltane) is a martial artist and user of the Thunder Thunder Fist.
Volten is a man with sunken cheeks and round eyes with dark markings around it. He keeps his black hair slicked back and wears a high collared olive green outfit with golden decorative buttons.
After Volten became a monster, his hair spiked upwards and became lighter. His body was also engulfed in electricity, and his face transformed into a devilish grin. He took on an appearance resembling that of a Raiju.
Volten was struck by lightning as a child, which turned him into a superb electrokinetic fighter.
Volten is participating in the Super Fight Tournament in C-City at the C-City Super Stadium. This is the fourth time Volten has participated in the tournament. While watching the match between Lightning Max and Suiryu, he was shocked by the latters strength, and how easily he defeated his opponent.
Volten defeats Bazuzu during the first round of the tournament. In his second round, he defeats Gatlin, but suffers some minor injuries. He was later defeated by Suiryu during the semi-final in 3 seconds with one single kick.
Volten becomes a monster after eating a monster cell, wishing to enhance his powers and get stronger than Suiryu. However, even after becoming a monster, he was still no match for Suiryu and was immediately defeated when Suiryu uses Benpatsu's body to pummel him like hammering a nail.
