Tokuro Fujiwara (藤原 得郎 Fujiwara Tokurō, born 7 April 1961), sometimes credited as Professor F or Arthur King, is a Japanese video game designer, involved in the development of many classic Capcom video games. He directed early Capcom titles such as Ghosts 'n Goblins, Commando, Bionic Commando, and the survival horror game Sweet Home. He was also a main producer for the Mega Man series and worked on the CP System arcade game Strider. He also conceived of Resident Evil as a remake of his previous game Sweet Home, and worked on the game as general producer. He worked as the general manager of the Capcom Console Games Division from 1988 to 1996.
After working at Capcom for thirteen years, he left the company to form his own studio, Whoopee Camp. His last game was MadWorld with PlatinumGames. He is notorious for making his titles difficult for the average video game player. IGN listed Fujiwara at number 13 in its "Top 100 Game Creators of All Time" list.

- Shinji Mikami interview:
-- By the way, At that time, did you have a role model? I mean, someone you admired in the field?
Mikami: Mr. Fujiwara.
-— He is your master?
M: Yeah. He is scary master for me. Maybe evil master. I still can't compete with him. I'll put myself at his feet. He has some kind of different atmosphere than other people. He is not big or macho and he doesn't raise his voice either but he is really scary. His way is not "Yes or No" only "YES". I learned a lot from him, one big thing I learned from him is "Create freedom inside restriction."
