Several members of Team Foo Fighter, not long after its founding.

Team Foo Fighter (known as Team Asteroid in the English version) is an organization of cardfighters in the Cardfight!! Vanguard Anime.

History

Team Foo Fighter (sometimes abbreviated FF) was founded by Ren Suzugamori and Tetsu Shinjou several years before the events of the Cardfight!! Vanguard Anime. After meeting Toshiki Kai, they offered him a place in the team, which he accepted.

The team continued with three members for some time, until Ren (now under the influence of PSY Qualia) decided to expand the team by commissioning the construction of a large headquarters with the intention to gather many skilled cardfighters under his leadership. Kai objected to this plan and ultimately left the team after being unable to persuade Ren. Ren continued with his plan, recruiting an increasing number of followers including Asaka Narumi, Kyou Yahagi and the members of Brilliant Stars.

Members of Foo Fighter participate in Vanguard tournaments, including the Regional and National Tournaments, and have won the National Championship.


Etymology

  • In the Japanese version, the team is named "Foo Fighter" based on Tetsu's comment on Ren, that he is a "mysterious, unidentified fighter".
  • In the English version, the team is named "Asteroid" based on Tetsu's comments on Ren, that he's like an "asteroid who crash landed on Earth".

Philosophy

The members of Foo Fighter are trained to value strength and skill at cardfighting above all else. Failure is not tolerated, with members who lose matches being treated harshly, even to the point of expulsion from the team.


Membership

During the first season of the Cardfight!! Vanguard Anime, Team Foo Fighter was stated to include over 500 members.


Manga

In the manga, Foo Fighter are a feared and infamous cardfighting gang who invade card shops. By forcing players to fight using Vanguard Fight Gloves, which, in the manga, cause pain to the wearer when damage is taken, they drive players away from card shops and force them out of business. While the team Foo Fighter AL4 does not exist in the manga, Ren Suzugamori and Tetsu Shinjou are still the founders of the organisation, while Asaka Narumi and Kyou Yahagi are the other two members of Foo Fighter's top four players.
