How Todo joined the Tourney
Todoh is the creator and main teacher of Todoh style Kobudo, which derives its style from Aikido and Kendo. Todoh had a long standing rivalry with disciples of the Kyokugenryu school of Karate and considers them a threat to his style of teaching in terms of profits as well as personal animosity dating back to a rivalry with Takuma Sakazaki from when both men were very young.
In his quest to find his abducted younger sister, Yuri, Ryo Sakazaki blatantly attacked Todoh at his school and fought him to interrogate him about the whereabouts of his sister. After Ryo easily defeated Todoh, he was humiliated and saw his school's finances as well as the attendance at his schools suffer. After the loss, Todoh went into hiding and hasn't been seen since. Due to his disappearance, his daughter Kasumi went on a personal quest to not only try to look for her father, but to gain revenge on Ryo and all Kyokugenryu disciples to try to reclaim her family's honor.
Todoh resurfaced when he saw Johnny Joestar reading a newspaper article announcing the second Smash Bros. Tourney. In hopes of restoring his dojo, he signed up.
