Volten S2

Volten's previous appearance as a human.

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.[1]

Suiryu attacks Volten

Suiryu hammers Volten by using Benpatsu's body

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.[2] While watching the match between Lightning Max and Suiryu, he was shocked by the latters strength, and how easily he defeated his opponent.[3]

Volten defeats Bazuzu during the first round of the tournament.[4] In his second round, he defeats Gatlin, but suffers some minor injuries.[5] He was later defeated by Suiryu during the semi-final in 3 seconds with one single kick.

Super Fight ArcEdit

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.
