Wolf Hawkfield (ウルフ・ホークフィールド Urufu Hōkufīrudo) is a professional wrestler from Canada that debuted in the original Virtua Fighter. He lived as a First Nations woodsman and hunter in the Canadian wilderness until he was discovered on a scouting trip by a professional wrestling promoter.
A quiet man who loves nature, he has his gentle side. He is filled with fighting spirit, however, and once provoked he is not satisfied until he finishes the job at hand. Being the strongest, he was an instant star in the pro wrestling area, and successfully defended his title several times. Dissatisfied with the level of competition, however, he turned in his belt and retired from the ring. Hearing of the World tournament, he entered to seek worthy opponents. After the end of the second tournament, Wolf had a recurring nightmare about the world being in danger. This dream was the sole reason for him joining the third tournament (Virtua Fighter 3). However, since he was defeated in the third tournament, he decided to ignore the dream and went back home. Back there, Wolf entered in countless underground tournaments and dominated. However, the same dream still haunts him.
Wolf appeared in All Japan Pro Wrestling Featuring Virtua (arcade and Sega Saturn 1997) and All Japan Pro Wrestling 2 Giant Gram (arcade and Sega Dreamcast 1999). Professional wrestler Jim Steele wrestled as "Wolf Hawkfield" in All Japan Pro Wrestling from 1997 to 2000.
IGN listed Wolf as the 4th best fake wrestler in video games, while GamesRadar ranked him as the 2nd best video game wrestler, stating "Beyond his skills and masterfully tailored ring attire, Wolf is one of gaming's most important wrestlers because of his comical self seriousness."
