Dan Hibiki

Either the most underappreciated or the most overblown fighting game character of all time, Dan Hibiki first appeared as a playable character in Capcom's "Street Fighter Alpha". A parody of characters from SNK's "Art of Fighting" games, Dan's inability to take things seriously, and his fighting style of Saikyou-ryu (a cheap amalgam of Ryu and Ken's Ansatsuken, Sagat's Muay Thai kickboxing, and making fun of his opponent) made him a fairly mediocre character. Originally he sought revenge for the death of his father, Go Hibiki, who was killed by Sagat. These days, he's more of a joke character than anything. He has developed quite a cult following, however, and he even has his own animutation trilogy.
