~ Dan Hibiki

Dan Hibiki is a joke character from the Street Fighter series.

Background

Dan was the son of mixed martial arts master Go Hibiki, who was murdered by Sagat after he was responsible for gouging out the Muay Thai champion's eye. Dan then went on a quest to avenge his father's death by training to become a fighter, but was expelled from Gouken's dojo when his motivations were learned. Dan thus developed his own style of Gouken's martial art merged with Muay Thai elements and called it Saikyō-ryū, or "Strongest style," despite the complete weakness of his techniques.

After supposedly defeating Sagat (which only happened because Sagat let him win), Dan focused his attention on developing his own dojo to teach others of Saikyō-ryū, and befriended Sakura and Blanka.

Powers & Abilities

  • Saikyō-ryū Fighting Style: A combination between the Ansatsuken and Muay Thai.
    • Gadoken ("Self Way Fist"): Dan fires a small wave of Ki energy with one hand. The attack's general range is extremely short. However, Dan can hold his hand and charge the Gadoken, giving it additional power and range. The EX version is a stronger projectile, which maintains the same range. Sometimes, dan can randomly fire a red version of the Gadoken, which is stronger than normal and knocks the opponent down.
      • Shinku Gadoken: Dan performs a powered-up version of the Gadoken.
      • Haoh Gadoken: Dan charges up a full-powered, two-handed version of his original Gadoken and shoots it at his opponent; after performing the attack, Dan is shown flying backwards, insinuating that the force of the attack itself was too much for him to handle.
    • Koryuken ("Clear Dragon Fist"): Dan performs a jumping uppercut.
    • Dankukyaku ("Severing Air Leg"): Dan jumps and delivers a knee jab, to which he can add up to two kicks. The EX version is stronger and adds a fourth roundhouse kick.
    • Saikyo Chop: Dan hits the opponent with a flamboyant, overhead chop, almost losing balance doing it.
    • Saikyo Jawbreaker: Dan delivers a powerful kick upwards, striking the opponent's jaw.
    • Saikyo Kick: Dan delivers a roundhouse kick.
    • Kachiwari Chop: Dan hits the opponent with a donward chop.
    • Crouching Taunt: Dan gets down on one knee, swinging one arm up and flexing, with his other hand on his bicep. This move can be slightly damaging on touch.
    • Jumping Taunt: Dan jumps up, flexing, with his other hand on his bicep and yells "Woohooo!". This move can be slightly damaging on touch.
    • SaikyoTaikuzushi: Dan grabs the opponent by the collar, places his foot in-between the opponent's legs and uses it to sweep them, causing the opponent to fall back onto the ground.
    • Saikyo Haraigoshi Dan grabs the opponent and pulls them over his shoulder, causing them to land on their back after a bit of trouble.
    • Gadou Thrust: Dan grabs the opponent by the collar and hits them with a punch.
    • Danretsuken ("Bullet Fury Fist"): Dan delivers a quick series of punches and finishes with two strikes with both hands. The EX version is stronger and finishes with a powerful uppercut that sends the opponent flying.
    • Saikyo Defense: After blocking an attack, Dan dashes backward, creating distance for him to take advantage.
    • Saikyo Tenjinsai: Dan tackles the enemy in a quick shoulder throw, and stomps on them. In the powered up version, he follows up with a downward punch.
    • Focus Attack: A heavy move that grants an augmented defense to the user during the execution and, if it lands, makes the opponent crumple.
    • Koryu Rekka: Dan performs a quick, short-ranged Koryuken, followed by a faster and higher one immediately after.
    • Shisso Buraiken: Dan dashes towards the opponent and punches them in the face, proceeding to launch a barrage of blows and finishes with a Koryuken.
    • Legendary Taunt: Dan performs a series of taunts consecutively.
    • Hissho Buraiken ("Certain Victory Independent Fist"): Dan's strongest technique, consisting in a rapid flurry of hits. Dan delivers first a knee jab to the opponent's lower section and follows with two punches to their face. He then grabs their wrist and hits them in the midsection with a punch and a kick. Dan lets them go just to hit them in the face with two elbow strikes and two punches. After that, the opponent his forced to kneel with a low kick, which leaves them open to other two kicks in the face and the chest. Dan finishes them off with a powerful Koryuken and a disrespectful taunt.
    • Saikyo-Style Kaihi Jutsu ("Strongest Style Evasion Technique"): After blocking an attack, Dan performs an evasive movement, rolling past the opponent.
    • Saikyo Donukigeri ("Strongest Style Penetrating Kick"): Dan quickly dashes backwards to dodge an incoming attack and replies with a heavy kick, knocking the opponent down before they are able to react. He then taunts the fallen opponent.
    • Saikyo-Style Burairuten no Kamae ("Strongest Style Stance of Independent Flow"): A collection of three taunts Dan is able to perform extremely quickly, dealing a bit of damage to the opponent. The first consists in rolling forward and snap his fingers; Dan can perform this one immediately after delivering a Special Attack, either to deal additional damage or extend his combos. The second features Dan rolling backwards to evade an attack, mocking the opponent once finished. The third is an airborne taunt Dan performs by placing a hand next to his ear; its purpose is the same as the first. These taunts also have the property to raise both Dan and his opponent's energy gauge.
    • Saikyo-Style Otokoboe ("Strongest Style Manly Cry"): Dan trusts his fist out and deals a little bit of damage. The true purpose of this technique is to be used a feint, immediately canceling it out into another attack.
    • Tenchi Saikyo no Kata ("Heaven and Earth Strongest Style Form"): Dan focuses his Ki into his fists, enhancing the strength of his Gadoken and Koryuken for awhile.
      • Haten Gadoken: The amplified version of the Gadoken. It travels farther and deals much more damage than normal.
      • Goh Koryuken: The amplified version of the Koryuken. Dan can perform it twice in a row, while dealing additional damage thanks to the focused Ki.
  • Excessive Taunting: Dan can perform more taunts than any other character from the series.
