Chrys James, commonly known as Cool Z, is one of Wuying Ren's henchmen. Cool Z loves rap music, and his boom box is never more than an arm's length away. He appears to be intimidating, but he is actually weak in a fight. When he realizes that a fighter is pretty tough, he runs away. He and Xianweng Ni (Wong) are good friends.
Cool Z first appears when he, Sam, Larry, and Wong steal Ryo Hazuki's bag. He, Sam, and Larry spent all of the money in the bag on gambling. If Ryo succeeds in the QTE Chase with Wong, he fights Sam and Larry. Once he beats the two, Cool Z runs away scared. If Ryo fails the chase and battles when retrieving his bag, he will see Wong buying a Virtua Fighter capsule toy with Cool Z standing behind him. He then attacks and interrogates him demanding to know where his bag is. Later on, when Ren rips Ryo off, he can chase Cool Z. He will interrogate him by taking his boom box and threatens to break it unless he tells him where Ren is.
When Ryo and Ren go to Kowloon, Cool Z guards the hideout.
