All glory to Dan Habiki[edit]

Street Fighter Wiki FTW

"I hope you're ready for a beating!" —Dan, Street Fighter IV Dan Hibiki (火引 弾, Hibiki Dan) is a character from Capcom's Street Fighter series of fighting games. Dan is consistently portrayed as an arrogant, overconfident, awesome, yet utterly feeble character in many of the games he is featured in. He is widely considered to be the comic relief of the series because of his over-the-top poses, battle cries, and overall weak moveset. In essence, Dan is considered to be a joke character. In his most recent appearance in the home versions of Street Fighter IV, however, his moves have been slightly upgraded in order to be balanced with other characters.

Dan is usually given obnoxious or exaggerated attention; for example, in SFA2's intro. Added by HavocReaper48 Not long after Street Fighter II was released, rival video game company SNK released a fighting game, called Art of Fighting, starring Ryo Sakazaki and Robert Garcia. Ryo managed to bear a similarity in appearance, fighting style, and name to Ryu, and had the sa

me hair color as Ken. In humorous retaliation, Capcom included Dan as a secret character in Street Fighter Alpha. Connections to SNK CharactersEdit Dan's pink clothing is a spoof of Ryo's orange attire, while his head is a spoof of Robert's; he also taunts similarly to Yuri. Instead of using both hands to unleash his Gadouken (as Ryu, Ken, and even Sakura do for the Hadouken), he propels it with one hand, like Ryo, Robert and Yuri do for the Ko-oh-ken (that Robert calls Ryuugeki-ken). Dan can also taunt infinitely like the Art of Fighting games, unlike his fellow Street Fighter characters. In addition, he also had four unique taunts- one when he stands up, one crouching down, a short one when jumping, and a taunt exclusive to one of his special moves, Roll Taunt. Each taunt slightly fills up his Super Gauge. Dan's fighting style, the Saikyo-ryuu, is a parody of Kyokugen-ryuu, the fighting style used by Ryo and Robert. To further the parody, Saikyo-ryuu means "Strongest style" while Kyokugen-ryuu means "Extreme Style."

In Street Fighter Alpha 2, Dan is Ken's secret challenger (reached by finishing several fights in a row with Super Combos) and they exchange dialog, one line of which is Ken asking Dan if he knows the "art of fighting."

One of Dan's win quotes in Street Fighter Alpha 3 is "I hate the art of fighting, but I want to be the king of fighters!"; this is a direct reference to Art of Fighting and The King of Fighters series by SNK.


Dan's sister stopping him from killing Cyber Akuma Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In Dan's ending in Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, Dan's sister appears to prevent him finishing off Cyber-Akuma saying "Don't you know who he is? He's our...", parodying the ending of the original Art of Fighting where Ryo was about to kill Mr. Karate before being told he is their father by Yuri (Dan's sister even looks like her). In the SNK vs. Capcom series (more specifically in SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom), there is a running gag where Dan is often mistaken for Ryo or Robert, even by himself in a mirror match (Kasumi Todoh is one example: even after Dan tells her he is not Robert, she still does not believe him). In these games, Dan parodies even more of Ryo's attacks. He also mistook Mr. Karate for his father's ghost (though, in his ending in Neo Geo Pocket's SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium, he seems to acknowledge that Takuma and Go are different people). In Ryo's ending for Capcom vs. SNK 2, it is hinted that Dan came to the Sakazakis' Kyokugenryu Karate school to sign up.

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In Pocket Fighter, Dan can call on the ghost of his father, whose face resembles the same tengu mask as Mr. Karate. This is mirrored in Capcom's official artwork for Street Fighter Alpha; earlier works featured Dan's father as wearing a tengu mask while later ones show that the long nose was indeed a feature of Go Hibiki. All other instances of Go Hibiki's face are obscured, such as the image of young Sagat clutching Go's face shown at right. AppearanceEdit Dan has a similar outfit to Ryu and Ken, wearing a traditional Karate gi. Dan also wears a black undershirt like Ryo. His head and face closely resembles Robert from Art of Fighting, while his outfit is bright pink, reminiscent of Ryo's orange outfit in Art of Fighting. Coincidentally, orange is one of Dan's primary alternate colors. His fighting stance is similar to Ken and Ryu's (being how he was simply a palette-swap of those two); in later games, it is more "loose" and animated. As seen below, his appearance in Capcom VS. SNK 2 is more distinct in that he's lighter on his feet and his arms are positioned differently. In Street Fighter IV', he forgoes bouncing around in his stance in favor of hand and arm movements reminiscent of Tai Chi movements. Many of his mannerisms directly mirror those of Yuri Sakazaki.

Story Edit According to the Super Street Fighter IV blog, Dan was born on November 25. Dan's father, Gou, was a mixed martial artist and a rival of Sagat. Gou gouged out Sagat's right eye and Sagat beat him to death in retaliation. Because of this, Dan sought revenge on Sagat, 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 Saikyo-ryu or, "The Strongest Style," despite the complete weakness of his techniques. He set on a quest to find Sagat and take vengeance for his father's death. Sagat kills Dan's father Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 Street Fighter Alpha 2Edit In Street Fighter Alpha 2, Dan finds Sagat to avenge his father's death. During Dan's travels, he encounters Guy, who calls his moves cute. Guy then explains he is looking to challenge fighters. Dan accepts his challenge and fights Guy. He eventually encounters Sagat. When Dan taunts him on wanting to make the left eye match the right, Sagat comments that the man who took out his right eye paid with his life. Angered, Dan brands Sagat a murderer, knowing the man was his father. Sagat then comments that Dan should join his father, which then led to their fight. Dan's story is canonical; after their fight, Dan wins, although he doesn't know Sagat let him win, realizing how anger makes people do things they will regret. Satisfied that he finally avenged his father's death, Dan returns to Hong Kong and sets up his Saikyo-ryu Dojo. Street Fighter Alpha 3Edit

Dan opens his Dojo Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 "Dan finally defeated the man who killed his father... He made his own fighting style called Saikyo, "the strongest". But his ambitions will not rest until he achieves perfection..." —Dan's Street Fighter Alpha 3 Profile Dan travels the world, promoting Saikyo-ryu, until Chun-Li comes and questions him and asks if he is involved with Shadaloo. Dan fights her, wins and flees. While back in Thailand, he fights Sagat, hoping to take him under his wing, but refuses. After winning, he meets M. Bison, leader of Shadaloo and Sagat's employer, Dan remembers his fight with Chun-Li, blames him for it, then Bison orders Balrog to fight him. He wins, then fights Bison, after that, he finishes Bison off with his Hisshou Buraiken. He then turns the Psycho Drive Plant into his Saikyo Thailand dojo, where he and his friend Blanka, who he correctly refers to as Jimmy, learn Rolling Attack. Later, Charlie, who arrived late, comes with a flight squad and bombs the base, and Dan and Blanka escape. In an unknown time, he takes Sakura, the number 1 fan of his former master's student (Ryu) under his wing. However, while Sakura doesn't seem to mind Dan, he is unaware that she's using him to get to Ryu. Street Fighter IV Edit In Street Fighter IV, Dan is shown to be annoyed that he wasn't told of the second World Warrior Tournament, asking Blanka whether the crowds were bored to tears without a star like him to provide real action; in reality, Blanka tried to get in contact with him about the tournament, but couldn't, as Dan hadn't paid his phone bill and his phone was disconnected. Sakura also asks Dan whether he's heard anything about Ryu lately, since Dan has claimed that Ryu was an apprentice of his. To keep up this appearance, Dan says that Ken Masters is rumored to be entering the next World Tournament, which makes it likely that Ryu will also show up. Dan enters the new tournament to spread the popularity of his Saikyo style[2], barely getting enough points to qualify as a last-minute entry. At the end of the tournament, Dan is seen at the S.I.N. base, bumping into Blanka before an explosion threatens to engulf them both. They are saved by Ryu and Sakura, at which point Dan tells them to be more careful, as "even with [his] awesome powers" they may not survive the next wave. He then makes his exit to the amazement of all.[2] In an effort to capitalize on his association with great fighters, he broadcasts a commercial advertising the Saikyo-ryu dojo, telling people to drop in to enroll (his phone is still disconnected). However, when no-one turns up, S

as i was saying[edit]

akura points out that the ad didn't contain the dojo's address, whereupon Dan realizes his mistake and screams.[3]

Other AppearancesEdit Street Fighter X TekkenEdit

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In the debut trailer of the crossover game, Street Fighter X Tekken, Dan is badly beaten and "killed" by Kazuya Mishima from the Tekken universe,[4] during which he elaborates on events regarding the plot. However, he makes a non-playable apearance as the training mode instructor. He is also shown to be trapped in Pandora in Sakura and Blanka's ending. Pocket Fighter Edit

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In the unofficial events of Pocket Fighter, Dan's story begins with himself looking to expand his Saikyo-ryu school, and subsequently chooses Sakura as his student. Upon meeting Sakura, he offers to teach her his style, and she accepts after Dan defeats her in a fight. Sakura masters the entire Saikyo-ryuu style, after which writing a letter to Dan commenting on how she has purposely forgotten the entire Saikyo-ryuu style, calling his moves "retarded", thus humiliating Dan. In the Street Fighter AlphaStreet Fighter Alpha animated OVA, Dan is seen fighting Vega, as well as Birdie in another scene. Dan loses and is brutally defeated in both battles. Connections With Other Games/Media Edit Ran Hibiki, from the Rival Schools fighting game series, shares the same last name as Dan as well as some few similarities with him and it has been speculated that they are related to each other. A classmate of Ran is Chairperson, who learned to fight from a Saikyou-Ryu correspondence course. Sean from the Street Fighter III series, a student of Ken Masters who has a very limited mastery of the fighting style, has the win quotes, "Don't call me Dan!", "Rule #1: Never give up! Rule #2: Don't fight me! Rule #3: Don't be like Dan!" and "You fight like Dan. You ARE Dan!". In a Kamen Rider Decade episode, in which the characters are in Kamen Rider Hibiki's episode, Kadoya Tsukasa wears a pink kimono. This may be a reference to Dan, since the world's Rider shares his name with Dan's surname. GameplayEdit Due to his somewhat clumsy, slow and short moves, Dan is widely regarded as a joke character, not recommended to be used for any serious competition. He is also popular as a handicap to skilled players, as his weakness makes winning matches more difficult when against notably powerful characters such as Ryu, Ken and Charlie. As such, selecting Dan can in itself be seen as a taunt, since doing so implies high confidence that a player is superior in skill to his or her opponent. Strangely enough, the sheer comedy value made Dan a campy fan favorite of sorts. Although generally inferior to Ryu and Ken, in some areas he is slightly stronger. For instance his Dankukyaku can not be ducked under like Ryu and Ken's Tatsumaki Senpukyaku can, his taunt jump, allows him to jump higher than Ryu and Ken normally and it can interrupt in-air attacks. Each taunt also increases his super bar where Ryu and Ken's do not and his crouching and rolling taught and be good for avoiding and interrupting most attacks. He is difficult to use but he can be better than some of the other characters if used properly.

In Street Fighter IV, however, although his comical mannerisms remain intact, Dan appears to be more serious, and his moves have been notably upgraded to do equal damage to the those of the other mid-weight characters. His buffs and updates to his moves in the more recent games have actually allowed Dan to become a legitimate choice in the tournament setting, to the point that players say that Dan's greatest strength is the illusion that he's supposed to be bad.

Techniques Edit In the games he appears in, Dan is distinguished from Ryu and Ken by his ineffective special moves, such as a projectile with a comically short range (Gadouken, or Self-Taught Fist) and a triple-hitting flying kick that is easy to block (Dankukyaku, or Gale Kick); both are reminiscent of special attacks in Art of Fighting (if one had no Spirit Power in that game, special attacks become useless). Dan also possesses Koryuken, an anti-air uppercut (initially different, but eventually mimicking Ryu and Ken's Shoryuken) with very little horizontal range, during which he sometimes flashes and becomes completely invincible. He can also perform Premium Sign, where he autographs a portrait and flings it at the opponent. Dan has a move known as the Hisshou Buraiken, which is a standing parody of Ryo's flying Desperation move, the Ryuuko Ranbu. Dan also possesses a "Shoryu Reppa" type move called the Koryu Rekka, which was borrowed from the double uppercut at the end of Ryo's MAX Ryuuko Ranbu (he even imitates Ryo's "Kyokugen-ryuu Ougi!"/"Kyokugen-style secret!" yell that is used at the beginning of Ryuuko Ranbu, instead declaring "Saikyo-ryuu Ougi!"). Both moves have little to no range at all, and leave Dan wide open for attack if the moves are blocked.

Despite being the lowest tier amongst the main characters, Dan is still an above-average martial artist when compared to typical fighters. In the first volume of the manga Sakura Ganbaru!, Dan enters a street fighting competition and is shown doing rather well (though he admitted to using underhanded tactics, as he would "do anything to win"), only losing to Ken, who later went on to win the entire competition.

This seems to tie in to his appearance in Street Fighter IV, when he appears to be more serious, and his moves have been slightly upgraded in order to be balanced with other characters. He gains the new and quite powerful Haoh Gadouken Ultra Combo in Super Street Fighter IV, which is much similar to Ryo's super fireball. Dan's other Ultra in the Street Fighter IV series is Shisso Buraiken, which is basically his Hissho Buraiken, but he runs towards the opponent to connect. Similarly to the Haoh Gadouken, one can combo into the Shisso Buraiken with the Legendary Taunt.

TauntsEdit A running gag in all games that Dan appears in is his ability to taunt. In games where the player is limited to only one taunt, Dan is able to do an unlimited amount. Each Taunt also adds to his Super bar, generally (it varies by game) by a healthy amount. In Street Fighter IV, he is also able to perform a special Super Combo: the infamous "Super Taunt" (Chohatsu Dentetsu), which is simply a taunt dragged out for several seconds. It does absolutely no damage, and Dan is vulnerable throughout the entire escapade. It takes a whole Super Combo Gauge to perform. This attack is often seen as the ultimate insult, as it shows the player's confidence in victory enough to make him waste a chance at using a super move in favor of this, and performing it under any situation other than total victory is suicide. The interesting thing about this move is that Dan can perform his Ultra during the taunt, and, by starting this combo with the Gadouken, is the easiest way to hit with his Ultra.

Dan is one of only two characters in the Street Fighter series that has a super taunt, along with Sagat: Chouhatsu Densetsu (Legendary Taunt) and Chouhatsu Shinwa (Mythical Taunt).

Parody AttacksEdit In addition to his normal moveset, which parodies the moves used by "shoto"-style fighters, Dan has a move in some games known as the Otoko Michi (Way of the Man), which parodies Akuma's Shun Goku Satsu. The Otoko Michi is performed by doing the command for the Shun Goku Satsu in reverse. Depending on the game, the Otoko Michi can be as powerful as the Shun Goku Satsu, which can take off more than half of the opponent's lifebar, or it takes off a minimal amount of life from the opponent. In most versions, it leaves Dan with only 1% of his own life. Due to its slow speed and high costs, this move is considered highly unreliable and only used when absolute victory is certain. In Marvel vs. Capcom 2, it is the strongest single Hyper Combo in the game, even greater than the Shun Goku Satsu. In SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom, it not only does a considerable amount of damage when used, but he loses no life from performing it: this is due to the fact that it is his Exceed attack, all of which can only be done once per match and need a low amount of life remaining to become usable to begin with. Ironically, Dan parodies even more Kyokugen-style attacks in the SNK-produced games of the SNK vs. Capcom series. He gains the Gadou Sho Ko Ken (a Gadoken-ranged version of the Haoh Sho Ko Ken) in both SNK-produced games (as a Level 2 version of Shinkuu Gadoken in The Match of the Millennium, and a regular special move in SVC Chaos). In SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom, he also gains a parody version of Ryo's Tenchi Haoh Ken called Kyuukyoku Tenchi Gadou Zuki that is able to block any attack during the charge-up period, even normally unblockable moves, but does not do much damage and has an extremely long recovery time since Dan punches the opponent so hard that he breaks the bones in his hand, and needs some time to tend to it.

In Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, one can input a code just before the start of the match, in which Dan falls onto the ground, creating a comically huge explosion, instead of his normal entrance. He then gets up and the fight starts. This has absolutely no effect on gameplay.

Other Games Edit In the parody puzzle game Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, Dan's joke status continues. The gameplay in Puzzle Fighter revolves around setting up large blocks of "gems" to be broken, which will then drop countering gems on opponents in complex patterns in order to fill up their screens. Usually these attack gems fall in complex patterns designed to make it harder for opponents to successfully break them up. However, in Dan's case, every single gem dropped is red. This makes it comically easy for an opponent to break them all at once and create a massive counterattack that usually buries the Dan player completely. Perhaps even more so than in his traditional games, choosing Dan is considered the ultimate "sneer" to your opponent, since the amount of skill required to successfully play or beat someone else as Dan is so high that it is considered that no player of sound ability should ever lose to someone else playing as Dan. Stage ThemeEdit [1] [2] [3] [4] TriviaEdit Although Dan's face was originally designed to resemble Robert Garcia of Art of Fighting, his more recent portraits indicate that he may also be a spoof at Steven Seagal. Dan is one of the 19 characters in Street Fighter IV to not have second rivals in Super Street Fighter IV, despite having a ultra combo video to include his second rival (Sagat). The Dan is a Japanese mark of level, which is used in traditional fine arts and martial arts. In Street Fighter IV, Dan was unaware of the Second World Warrior Tournament, but in the non-canon UDON Comic Street Fighter II Turbo, Dan attempts to enter the finals of said tournament by stealing Guy's invitation. Guy lets him get away with it but Dan is unable to make good use of it as he is beaten by Sakura, after believing he was a contender by default. Using Dan's crouching and air taunt in SSFIV against an opponent allows him to attack, but not cause any harm to his opponent. Despite this, certain characters with counters will register them as "attacks". Additionally, using his air taunt as soon the jump animation starts increases his jumping height, making possible for him to dodge attacks such as a strong Shoryuken from Ryu, Ken, or Akuma. In the UDON comics Dan gets posessed by the Satsui no Hado for a moment. While dueling Sakura, he gets consumed by this power and kanji 'father' appears on his back as he tries to deliver an attack reminiscent of Shun Goku Satsu. In a typical Dan manner, while dashing towards Sakura, he trips on her school bag (losing the power in the process) allowing the girl to make short work of him. Later on in the UDON SFIV comic, Seth kidnaps Dan for the purposes of BLECE project which harnesses the power of Dark Hadou. According to a few of his in-game win quotes in SSFIV, Dan is unemployed, despite being able to pay for an infomercial that airs at 3 A.M, which should actually cost more than a phone bill, thus saying Dan does not set priority on his own account. According to Dan-specific win quotes in SFIV and SSFIV, most characters find Dan "entertaining", while others "can't stand him" or believe he is "all talk". Abel in particular even thanks him for the laughs. Nothing is ever stated about Dan's mother; she was possibly/most likely dead before the events pre-dating Street Fighter, although there's no source confirming that. It is possible that Sakura based her Focus Attack on Dan's EX Dankukyaku. Dan's Gadouken range has noticeably increased since his last canonical appearance in Street Fighter Alpha 3; it is much more reliable, but at the cost of him having a much slower release. The animation is also different: he extends his arm forward while launching the projectile. Dan's second costume color for his original costume is a reference to Ryo Sakazaki's default costume in the Art of Fighting and King of Fighters series. Capcom has a history of putting in subtle nods to Dan's origins as a parody of SNK's fighting games, and Dan has had the orange gi/blue shirt costume since Alpha. Dan's second alternate costume in Super Street Fighter IV might be a reference to what tribes in South America wear. Similarly, Blanka's second alternate costume is Dan's gi and outfit. These costumes are references to Dan and Blanka's friendship. In the patch for Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, Capcom has again improved Dan, albeit mildly on a basis of comparison to other characters. This is what Capcom stated: "In a lot of ways, we are aiming to make this the strongest version of Dan ever in a Street Fighter Series, so we have changed many things." Dan is seen in Sentinel's ending in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, where he is grabbed by a Sentinel for observation. In SVC Chaos Dan is the only person in the roster to not be transformed by the Red Arremer due to his lack of power. In Street Fighter IV when Dan wins against Sagat in arcade mode he says "Now I can finally visit my father's grave without being ashamed". This is a reference to Guile's qoute when he wins against M.Bison in arcade mode he says "Now I can finally visit Charlie's grave without being ashamed". Gallery Edit

Street Fighter Wiki FTW

"I hope you're ready for a beating!" —Dan, Street Fighter IV Dan Hibiki (火引 弾, Hibiki Dan) is a character from Capcom's Street Fighter series of fighting games. Dan is consistently portrayed as an arrogant, overconfident, awesome, yet utterly feeble character in many of the games he is featured in. He is widely considered to be the comic relief of the series because of his over-the-top poses, battle cries, and overall weak moveset. In essence, Dan is considered to be a joke character.

me hair color as Ken. In humorous retaliation, Capcom included Dan as a secret character in Street Fighter Alpha. Connections to SNK CharactersEdit Dan's pink clothing is a spoof of Ryo's orange attire, while his head is a spoof of Robert's; he also taunts similarly to Yuri. Instead of using both hands to unleash his Gadouken (as Ryu, Ken, and even Sakura do for the Hadouken), he propels it with one hand, like Ryo, Robert and Yuri do for the Ko-oh-ken (that Robert calls Ryuugeki-ken). Dan can also taunt infinitely like the Art of Fighting games, unlike his fellow Street Fighter characters. In addition, he also had four unique taunts- one when he stands up, one crouching down, a short one when jumping, and a taunt exclusive to one of his special moves, Roll Taunt. Each taunt slightly fills up his Super Gauge. Dan's fighting style, the Saikyo-ryuu, is a parody of Kyokugen-ryuu, the fighting style used by Ryo and Robert. To further the parody, Saikyo-ryuu means "Strongest style" while Kyokugen-ryuu means "Extreme Style."

In Street Fighter Alpha 2, Dan is Ken's secret challenger (reached by finishing several fights in a row with Super Combos) and they exchange dialog, one line of which is Ken asking Dan if he knows the "art of fighting."

One of Dan's win quotes in Street Fighter Alpha 3 is "I hate the art of fighting, but I want to be the king of fighters!"; this is a direct reference to Art of Fighting and The King of Fighters series by SNK.


Dan's sister stopping him from killing Cyber Akuma Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In Dan's ending in Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, Dan's sister appears to prevent him finishing off Cyber-Akuma saying "Don't you know who he is? He's our...", parodying the ending of the original Art of Fighting where Ryo was about to kill Mr. Karate before being told he is their father by Yuri (Dan's sister even looks like her). In the SNK vs. Capcom series (more specifically in SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom), there is a running gag where Dan is often mistaken for Ryo or Robert, even by himself in a mirror match (Kasumi Todoh is one example: even after Dan tells her he is not Robert, she still does not believe him). In these games, Dan parodies even more of Ryo's attacks. He also mistook Mr. Karate for his father's ghost (though, in his ending in Neo Geo Pocket's SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium, he seems to acknowledge that Takuma and Go are different people). In Ryo's ending for Capcom vs. SNK 2, it is hinted that Dan came to the Sakazakis' Kyokugenryu Karate school to sign up.

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In Pocket Fighter, Dan can call on the ghost of his father, whose face resembles the same tengu mask as Mr. Karate. This is mirrored in Capcom's official artwork for Street Fighter Alpha; earlier works featured Dan's father as wearing a tengu mask while later ones show that the long nose was indeed a feature of Go Hibiki. All other instances of Go Hibiki's face are obscured, such as the image of young Sagat clutching Go's face shown at right. AppearanceEdit Dan has a similar outfit to Ryu and Ken, wearing a traditional Karate gi. Dan also wears a black undershirt like Ryo. His head and face closely resembles Robert from Art of Fighting, while his outfit is bright pink, reminiscent of Ryo's orange outfit in Art of Fighting. Coincidentally, orange is one of Dan's primary alternate colors. His fighting stance is similar to Ken and Ryu's (being how he was simply a palette-swap of those two); in later games, it is more "loose" and animated. As seen below, his appearance in Capcom VS. SNK 2 is more distinct in that he's lighter on his feet and his arms are positioned differently. In Street Fighter IV', he forgoes bouncing around in his stance in favor of hand and arm movements reminiscent of Tai Chi movements. Many of his mannerisms directly mirror those of Yuri Sakazaki.

Story Edit According to the Super Street Fighter IV blog, Dan was born on November 25. Dan's father, Gou, was a mixed martial artist and a rival of Sagat. Gou gouged out Sagat's right eye and Sagat beat him to death in retaliation. Because of this, Dan sought revenge on Sagat, 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 Saikyo-ryu or, "The Strongest Style," despite the complete weakness of his techniques. He set on a quest to find Sagat and take vengeance for his father's death. Sagat kills Dan's father Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 Street Fighter Alpha 2Edit In Street Fighter Alpha 2, Dan finds Sagat to avenge his father's death. During Dan's travels, he encounters Guy, who calls his moves cute. Guy then explains he is looking to challenge fighters. Dan accepts his challenge and fights Guy. He eventually encounters Sagat. When Dan taunts him on wanting to make the left eye match the right, Sagat comments that the man who took out his right eye paid with his life. Angered, Dan brands Sagat a murderer, knowing the man was his father. Sagat then comments that Dan should join his father, which then led to their fight. Dan's story is canonical; after their fight, Dan wins, although he doesn't know Sagat let him win, realizing how anger makes people do things they will regret. Satisfied that he finally avenged his father's death, Dan returns to Hong Kong and sets up his Saikyo-ryu Dojo. Street Fighter Alpha 3Edit

Dan opens his Dojo Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 "Dan finally defeated the man who killed his father... He made his own fighting style called Saikyo, "the strongest". But his ambitions will not rest until he achieves perfection..." —Dan's Street Fighter Alpha 3 Profile Dan travels the world, promoting Saikyo-ryu, until Chun-Li comes and questions him and asks if he is involved with Shadaloo. Dan fights her, wins and flees. While back in Thailand, he fights Sagat, hoping to take him under his wing, but refuses. After winning, he meets M. Bison, leader of Shadaloo and Sagat's employer, Dan remembers his fight with Chun-Li, blames him for it, then Bison orders Balrog to fight him. He wins, then fights Bison, after that, he finishes Bison off with his Hisshou Buraiken. He then turns the Psycho Drive Plant into his Saikyo Thailand dojo, where he and his friend Blanka, who he correctly refers to as Jimmy, learn Rolling Attack. Later, Charlie, who arrived late, comes with a flight squad and bombs the base, and Dan and Blanka escape. In an unknown time, he takes Sakura, the number 1 fan of his former master's student (Ryu) under his wing. However, while Sakura doesn't seem to mind Dan, he is unaware that she's using him to get to Ryu. Street Fighter IV Edit In Street Fighter IV, Dan is shown to be annoyed that he wasn't told of the second World Warrior Tournament, asking Blanka whether the crowds were bored to tears without a star like him to provide real action; in reality, Blanka tried to get in contact with him about the tournament, but couldn't, as Dan hadn't paid his phone bill and his phone was disconnected. Sakura also asks Dan whether he's heard anything about Ryu lately, since Dan has claimed that Ryu was an apprentice of his. To keep up this appearance, Dan says that Ken Masters is rumored to be entering the next World Tournament, which makes it likely that Ryu will also show up. Dan enters the new tournament to spread the popularity of his Saikyo style[2], barely getting enough points to qualify as a last-minute entry. At the end of the tournament, Dan is seen at the S.I.N. base, bumping into Blanka before an explosion threatens to engulf them both. They are saved by Ryu and Sakura, at which point Dan tells them to be more careful, as "even with [his] awesome powers" they may not survive the next wave. He then makes his exit to the amazement of all.[2] In an effort to capitalize on his association with great fighters, he broadcasts a commercial advertising the Saikyo-ryu dojo, telling people to drop in to enroll (his phone is still disconnected). However, when no-one turns up, S


I'm back mwahahahahaha[edit]

Stop that. It's making the article longer.[edit]

but dats da point[edit]

touche.[edit]

as i was saying[edit]

akura points out that the ad didn't contain the dojo's address, whereupon Dan realizes his mistake and screams.[3]

Other AppearancesEdit Street Fighter X TekkenEdit

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In the debut trailer of the crossover game, Street Fighter X Tekken, Dan is badly beaten and "killed" by Kazuya Mishima from the Tekken universe,[4] during which he elaborates on events regarding the plot. However, he makes a non-playable apearance as the training mode instructor. He is also shown to be trapped in Pandora in Sakura and Blanka's ending. Pocket Fighter Edit

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In the unofficial events of Pocket Fighter, Dan's story begins with himself looking to expand his Saikyo-ryu school, and subsequently chooses Sakura as his student. Upon meeting Sakura, he offers to teach her his style, and she accepts after Dan defeats her in a fight. Sakura masters the entire Saikyo-ryuu style, after which writing a letter to Dan commenting on how she has purposely forgotten the entire Saikyo-ryuu style, calling his moves "retarded", thus humiliating Dan. In the Street Fighter AlphaStreet Fighter Alpha animated OVA, Dan is seen fighting Vega, as well as Birdie in another scene. Dan loses and is brutally defeated in both battles. Connections With Other Games/Media Edit Ran Hibiki, from the Rival Schools fighting game series, shares the same last name as Dan as well as some few similarities with him and it has been speculated that they are related to each other. A classmate of Ran is Chairperson, who learned to fight from a Saikyou-Ryu correspondence course. Sean from the Street Fighter III series, a student of Ken Masters who has a very limited mastery of the fighting style, has the win quotes, "Don't call me Dan!", "Rule #1: Never give up! Rule #2: Don't fight me! Rule #3: Don't be like Dan!" and "You fight like Dan. You ARE Dan!". In a Kamen Rider Decade episode, in which the characters are in Kamen Rider Hibiki's episode, Kadoya Tsukasa wears a pink kimono. This may be a reference to Dan, since the world's Rider shares his name with Dan's surname. GameplayEdit Due to his somewhat clumsy, slow and short moves, Dan is widely regarded as a joke character, not recommended to be used for any serious competition. He is also popular as a handicap to skilled players, as his weakness makes winning matches more difficult when against notably powerful characters such as Ryu, Ken and Charlie. As such, selecting Dan can in itself be seen as a taunt, since doing so implies high confidence that a player is superior in skill to his or her opponent. Strangely enough, the sheer comedy value made Dan a campy fan favorite of sorts. Although generally inferior to Ryu and Ken, in some areas he is slightly stronger. For instance his Dankukyaku can not be ducked under like Ryu and Ken's Tatsumaki Senpukyaku can, his taunt jump, allows him to jump higher than Ryu and Ken normally and it can interrupt in-air attacks. Each taunt also increases his super bar where Ryu and Ken's do not and his crouching and rolling taught and be good for avoiding and interrupting most attacks. He is difficult to use but he can be better than some of the other characters if used properly.

In Street Fighter IV, however, although his comical mannerisms remain intact, Dan appears to be more serious, and his moves have been notably upgraded to do equal damage to the those of the other mid-weight characters. His buffs and updates to his moves in the more recent games have actually allowed Dan to become a legitimate choice in the tournament setting, to the point that players say that Dan's greatest strength is the illusion that he's supposed to be bad.

Techniques Edit In the games he appears in, Dan is distinguished from Ryu and Ken by his ineffective special moves, such as a projectile with a comically short range (Gadouken, or Self-Taught Fist) and a triple-hitting flying kick that is easy to block (Dankukyaku, or Gale Kick); both are reminiscent of special attacks in Art of Fighting (if one had no Spirit Power in that game, special attacks become useless). Dan also possesses Koryuken, an anti-air uppercut (initially different, but eventually mimicking Ryu and Ken's Shoryuken) with very little horizontal range, during which he sometimes flashes and becomes completely invincible. He can also perform Premium Sign, where he autographs a portrait and flings it at the opponent. Dan has a move known as the Hisshou Buraiken, which is a standing parody of Ryo's flying Desperation move, the Ryuuko Ranbu. Dan also possesses a "Shoryu Reppa" type move called the Koryu Rekka, which was borrowed from the double uppercut at the end of Ryo's MAX Ryuuko Ranbu (he even imitates Ryo's "Kyokugen-ryuu Ougi!"/"Kyokugen-style secret!" yell that is used at the beginning of Ryuuko Ranbu, instead declaring "Saikyo-ryuu Ougi!"). Both moves have little to no range at all, and leave Dan wide open for attack if the moves are blocked.

Despite being the lowest tier amongst the main characters, Dan is still an above-average martial artist when compared to typical fighters. In the first volume of the manga Sakura Ganbaru!, Dan enters a street fighting competition and is shown doing rather well (though he admitted to using underhanded tactics, as he would "do anything to win"), only losing to Ken, who later went on to win the entire competition.

This seems to tie in to his appearance in Street Fighter IV, when he appears to be more serious, and his moves have been slightly upgraded in order to be balanced with other characters. He gains the new and quite powerful Haoh Gadouken Ultra Combo in Super Street Fighter IV, which is much similar to Ryo's super fireball. Dan's other Ultra in the Street Fighter IV series is Shisso Buraiken, which is basically his Hissho Buraiken, but he runs towards the opponent to connect. Similarly to the Haoh Gadouken, one can combo into the Shisso Buraiken with the Legendary Taunt.

TauntsEdit A running gag in all games that Dan appears in is his ability to taunt. In games where the player is limited to only one taunt, Dan is able to do an unlimited amount. Each Taunt also adds to his Super bar, generally (it varies by game) by a healthy amount. In Street Fighter IV, he is also able to perform a special Super Combo: the infamous "Super Taunt" (Chohatsu Dentetsu), which is simply a taunt dragged out for several seconds. It does absolutely no damage, and Dan is vulnerable throughout the entire escapade. It takes a whole Super Combo Gauge to perform. This attack is often seen as the ultimate insult, as it shows the player's confidence in victory enough to make him waste a chance at using a super move in favor of this, and performing it under any situation other than total victory is suicide. The interesting thing about this move is that Dan can perform his Ultra during the taunt, and, by starting this combo with the Gadouken, is the easiest way to hit with his Ultra.

Dan is one of only two characters in the Street Fighter series that has a super taunt, along with Sagat: Chouhatsu Densetsu (Legendary Taunt) and Chouhatsu Shinwa (Mythical Taunt).

Parody AttacksEdit In addition to his normal moveset, which parodies the moves used by "shoto"-style fighters, Dan has a move in some games known as the Otoko Michi (Way of the Man), which parodies Akuma's Shun Goku Satsu. The Otoko Michi is performed by doing the command for the Shun Goku Satsu in reverse. Depending on the game, the Otoko Michi can be as powerful as the Shun Goku Satsu, which can take off more than half of the opponent's lifebar, or it takes off a minimal amount of life from the opponent. In most versions, it leaves Dan with only 1% of his own life. Due to its slow speed and high costs, this move is considered highly unreliable and only used when absolute victory is certain. In Marvel vs. Capcom 2, it is the strongest single Hyper Combo in the game, even greater than the Shun Goku Satsu. In SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom, it not only does a considerable amount of damage when used, but he loses no life from performing it: this is due to the fact that it is his Exceed attack, all of which can only be done once per match and need a low amount of life remaining to become usable to begin with. Ironically, Dan parodies even more Kyokugen-style attacks in the SNK-produced games of the SNK vs. Capcom series. He gains the Gadou Sho Ko Ken (a Gadoken-ranged version of the Haoh Sho Ko Ken) in both SNK-produced games (as a Level 2 version of Shinkuu Gadoken in The Match of the Millennium, and a regular special move in SVC Chaos). In SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom, he also gains a parody version of Ryo's Tenchi Haoh Ken called Kyuukyoku Tenchi Gadou Zuki that is able to block any attack during the charge-up period, even normally unblockable moves, but does not do much damage and has an extremely long recovery time since Dan punches the opponent so hard that he breaks the bones in his hand, and needs some time to tend to it.

In Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, one can input a code just before the start of the match, in which Dan falls onto the ground, creating a comically huge explosion, instead of his normal entrance. He then gets up and the fight starts. This has absolutely no effect on gameplay.

Other Games Edit In the parody puzzle game Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, Dan's joke status continues. The gameplay in Puzzle Fighter revolves around setting up large blocks of "gems" to be broken, which will then drop countering gems on opponents in complex patterns in order to fill up their screens. Usually these attack gems fall in complex patterns designed to make it harder for opponents to successfully break them up. However, in Dan's case, every single gem dropped is red. This makes it comically easy for an opponent to break them all at once and create a massive counterattack that usually buries the Dan player completely. Perhaps even more so than in his traditional games, choosing Dan is considered the ultimate "sneer" to your opponent, since the amount of skill required to successfully play or beat someone else as Dan is so high that it is considered that no player of sound ability should ever lose to someone else playing as Dan. Stage ThemeEdit [1] [2] [3] [4] TriviaEdit Although Dan's face was originally designed to resemble Robert Garcia of Art of Fighting, his more recent portraits indicate that he may also be a spoof at Steven Seagal. Dan is one of the 19 characters in Street Fighter IV to not have second rivals in Super Street Fighter IV, despite having a ultra combo video to include his second rival (Sagat). The Dan is a Japanese mark of level, which is used in traditional fine arts and martial arts. In Street Fighter IV, Dan was unaware of the Second World Warrior Tournament, but in the non-canon UDON Comic Street Fighter II Turbo, Dan attempts to enter the finals of said tournament by stealing Guy's invitation. Guy lets him get away with it but Dan is unable to make good use of it as he is beaten by Sakura, after believing he was a contender by default. Using Dan's crouching and air taunt in SSFIV against an opponent allows him to attack, but not cause any harm to his opponent. Despite this, certain characters with counters will register them as "attacks". Additionally, using his air taunt as soon the jump animation starts increases his jumping height, making possible for him to dodge attacks such as a strong Shoryuken from Ryu, Ken, or Akuma. In the UDON comics Dan gets posessed by the Satsui no Hado for a moment. While dueling Sakura, he gets consumed by this power and kanji 'father' appears on his back as he tries to deliver an attack reminiscent of Shun Goku Satsu. In a typical Dan manner, while dashing towards Sakura, he trips on her school bag (losing the power in the process) allowing the girl to make short work of him. Later on in the UDON SFIV comic, Seth kidnaps Dan for the purposes of BLECE project which harnesses the power of Dark Hadou. According to a few of his in-game win quotes in SSFIV, Dan is unemployed, despite being able to pay for an infomercial that airs at 3 A.M, which should actually cost more than a phone bill, thus saying Dan does not set priority on his own account. According to Dan-specific win quotes in SFIV and SSFIV, most characters find Dan "entertaining", while others "can't stand him" or believe he is "all talk". Abel in particular even thanks him for the laughs. Nothing is ever stated about Dan's mother; she was possibly/most likely dead before the events pre-dating Street Fighter, although there's no source confirming that. It is possible that Sakura based her Focus Attack on Dan's EX Dankukyaku. Dan's Gadouken range has noticeably increased since his last canonical appearance in Street Fighter Alpha 3; it is much more reliable, but at the cost of him having a much slower release. The animation is also different: he extends his arm forward while launching the projectile. Dan's second costume color for his original costume is a reference to Ryo Sakazaki's default costume in the Art of Fighting and King of Fighters series. Capcom has a history of putting in subtle nods to Dan's origins as a parody of SNK's fighting games, and Dan has had the orange gi/blue shirt costume since Alpha. Dan's second alternate costume in Super Street Fighter IV might be a reference to what tribes in South America wear. Similarly, Blanka's second alternate costume is Dan's gi and outfit. These costumes are references to Dan and Blanka's friendship. In the patch for Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, Capcom has again improved Dan, albeit mildly on a basis of comparison to other characters. This is what Capcom stated: "In a lot of ways, we are aiming to make this the strongest version of Dan ever in a Street Fighter Series, so we have changed many things." Dan is seen in Sentinel's ending in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, where he is grabbed by a Sentinel for observation. In SVC Chaos Dan is the only person in the roster to not be transformed by the Red Arremer due to his lack of power. In Street Fighter IV when Dan wins against Sagat in arcade mode he says "Now I can finally visit my father's grave without being ashamed". This is a reference to Guile's qoute when he wins against M.Bison in arcade mode he says "Now I can finally visit Charlie's grave without being ashamed". Gallery Edit

All glory to Dan Habiki[edit]

Street Fighter Wiki FTW

"I hope you're ready for a beating!" —Dan, Street Fighter IV Dan Hibiki (火引 弾, Hibiki Dan) is a character from Capcom's Street Fighter series of fighting games. Dan is consistently portrayed as an arrogant, overconfident, awesome, yet utterly feeble character in many of the games he is featured in. He is widely considered to be the comic relief of the series because of his over-the-top poses, battle cries, and overall weak moveset. In essence, Dan is considered to be a joke character. In his most recent appearance in the home versions of Street Fighter IV, however, his moves have been slightly upgraded in order to be balanced with other characters.

Dan is usually given obnoxious or exaggerated attention; for example, in SFA2's intro. Added by HavocReaper48 Not long after Street Fighter II was released, rival video game company SNK released a fighting game, called Art of Fighting, starring Ryo Sakazaki and Robert Garcia. Ryo managed to bear a similarity in appearance, fighting style, and name to Ryu, and had the sa


I am a random interrupting headline!!! XD[edit]

Anyways...[edit]

me hair color as Ken. In humorous retaliation, Capcom included Dan as a secret character in Street Fighter Alpha. Connections to SNK CharactersEdit Dan's pink clothing is a spoof of Ryo's orange attire, while his head is a spoof of Robert's; he also taunts similarly to Yuri. Instead of using both hands to unleash his Gadouken (as Ryu, Ken, and even Sakura do for the Hadouken), he propels it with one hand, like Ryo, Robert and Yuri do for the Ko-oh-ken (that Robert calls Ryuugeki-ken). Dan can also taunt infinitely like the Art of Fighting games, unlike his fellow Street Fighter characters. In addition, he also had four unique taunts- one when he stands up, one crouching down, a short one when jumping, and a taunt exclusive to one of his special moves, Roll Taunt. Each taunt slightly fills up his Super Gauge. Dan's fighting style, the Saikyo-ryuu, is a parody of Kyokugen-ryuu, the fighting style used by Ryo and Robert. To further the parody, Saikyo-ryuu means "Strongest style" while Kyokugen-ryuu means "Extreme Style."

In Street Fighter Alpha 2, Dan is Ken's secret challenger (reached by finishing several fights in a row with Super Combos) and they exchange dialog, one line of which is Ken asking Dan if he knows the "art of fighting."

One of Dan's win quotes in Street Fighter Alpha 3 is "I hate the art of fighting, but I want to be the king of fighters!"; this is a direct reference to Art of Fighting and The King of Fighters series by SNK.


Dan's sister stopping him from killing Cyber Akuma Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In Dan's ending in Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, Dan's sister appears to prevent him finishing off Cyber-Akuma saying "Don't you know who he is? He's our...", parodying the ending of the original Art of Fighting where Ryo was about to kill Mr. Karate before being told he is their father by Yuri (Dan's sister even looks like her). In the SNK vs. Capcom series (more specifically in SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom), there is a running gag where Dan is often mistaken for Ryo or Robert, even by himself in a mirror match (Kasumi Todoh is one example: even after Dan tells her he is not Robert, she still does not believe him). In these games, Dan parodies even more of Ryo's attacks. He also mistook Mr. Karate for his father's ghost (though, in his ending in Neo Geo Pocket's SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium, he seems to acknowledge that Takuma and Go are different people). In Ryo's ending for Capcom vs. SNK 2, it is hinted that Dan came to the Sakazakis' Kyokugenryu Karate school to sign up.

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In Pocket Fighter, Dan can call on the ghost of his father, whose face resembles the same tengu mask as Mr. Karate. This is mirrored in Capcom's official artwork for Street Fighter Alpha; earlier works featured Dan's father as wearing a tengu mask while later ones show that the long nose was indeed a feature of Go Hibiki. All other instances of Go Hibiki's face are obscured, such as the image of young Sagat clutching Go's face shown at right. AppearanceEdit Dan has a similar outfit to Ryu and Ken, wearing a traditional Karate gi. Dan also wears a black undershirt like Ryo. His head and face closely resembles Robert from Art of Fighting, while his outfit is bright pink, reminiscent of Ryo's orange outfit in Art of Fighting. Coincidentally, orange is one of Dan's primary alternate colors. His fighting stance is similar to Ken and Ryu's (being how he was simply a palette-swap of those two); in later games, it is more "loose" and animated. As seen below, his appearance in Capcom VS. SNK 2 is more distinct in that he's lighter on his feet and his arms are positioned differently. In Street Fighter IV', he forgoes bouncing around in his stance in favor of hand and arm movements reminiscent of Tai Chi movements. Many of his mannerisms directly mirror those of Yuri Sakazaki.

Story Edit According to the Super Street Fighter IV blog, Dan was born on November 25. Dan's father, Gou, was a mixed martial artist and a rival of Sagat. Gou gouged out Sagat's right eye and Sagat beat him to death in retaliation. Because of this, Dan sought revenge on Sagat, 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 Saikyo-ryu or, "The Strongest Style," despite the complete weakness of his techniques. He set on a quest to find Sagat and take vengeance for his father's death. Sagat kills Dan's father Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 Street Fighter Alpha 2Edit In Street Fighter Alpha 2, Dan finds Sagat to avenge his father's death. During Dan's travels, he encounters Guy, who calls his moves cute. Guy then explains he is looking to challenge fighters. Dan accepts his challenge and fights Guy. He eventually encounters Sagat. When Dan taunts him on wanting to make the left eye match the right, Sagat comments that the man who took out his right eye paid with his life. Angered, Dan brands Sagat a murderer, knowing the man was his father. Sagat then comments that Dan should join his father, which then led to their fight. Dan's story is canonical; after their fight, Dan wins, although he doesn't know Sagat let him win, realizing how anger makes people do things they will regret. Satisfied that he finally avenged his father's death, Dan returns to Hong Kong and sets up his Saikyo-ryu Dojo. Street Fighter Alpha 3Edit

Dan opens his Dojo Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 "Dan finally defeated the man who killed his father... He made his own fighting style called Saikyo, "the strongest". But his ambitions will not rest until he achieves perfection..." —Dan's Street Fighter Alpha 3 Profile Dan travels the world, promoting Saikyo-ryu, until Chun-Li comes and questions him and asks if he is involved with Shadaloo. Dan fights her, wins and flees. While back in Thailand, he fights Sagat, hoping to take him under his wing, but refuses. After winning, he meets M. Bison, leader of Shadaloo and Sagat's employer, Dan remembers his fight with Chun-Li, blames him for it, then Bison orders Balrog to fight him. He wins, then fights Bison, after that, he finishes Bison off with his Hisshou Buraiken. He then turns the Psycho Drive Plant into his Saikyo Thailand dojo, where he and his friend Blanka, who he correctly refers to as Jimmy, learn Rolling Attack. Later, Charlie, who arrived late, comes with a flight squad and bombs the base, and Dan and Blanka escape. In an unknown time, he takes Sakura, the number 1 fan of his former master's student (Ryu) under his wing. However, while Sakura doesn't seem to mind Dan, he is unaware that she's using him to get to Ryu. Street Fighter IV Edit In Street Fighter IV, Dan is shown to be annoyed that he wasn't told of the second World Warrior Tournament, asking Blanka whether the crowds were bored to tears without a star like him to provide real action; in reality, Blanka tried to get in contact with him about the tournament, but couldn't, as Dan hadn't paid his phone bill and his phone was disconnected. Sakura also asks Dan whether he's heard anything about Ryu lately, since Dan has claimed that Ryu was an apprentice of his. To keep up this appearance, Dan says that Ken Masters is rumored to be entering the next World Tournament, which makes it likely that Ryu will also show up. Dan enters the new tournament to spread the popularity of his Saikyo style[2], barely getting enough points to qualify as a last-minute entry. At the end of the tournament, Dan is seen at the S.I.N. base, bumping into Blanka before an explosion threatens to engulf them both. They are saved by Ryu and Sakura, at which point Dan tells them to be more careful, as "even with [his] awesome powers" they may not survive the next wave. He then makes his exit to the amazement of all.[2] In an effort to capitalize on his association with great fighters, he broadcasts a commercial advertising the Saikyo-ryu dojo, telling people to drop in to enroll (his phone is still disconnected). However, when no-one turns up, S

Stop that. It's making the article longer.[edit]

as i was saying[edit]

akura points out that the ad didn't contain the dojo's address, whereupon Dan realizes his mistake and screams.[3]

Other AppearancesEdit Street Fighter X TekkenEdit

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In the debut trailer of the crossover game, Street Fighter X Tekken, Dan is badly beaten and "killed" by Kazuya Mishima from the Tekken universe,[4] during which he elaborates on events regarding the plot. However, he makes a non-playable apearance as the training mode instructor. He is also shown to be trapped in Pandora in Sakura and Blanka's ending. Pocket Fighter Edit

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In the unofficial events of Pocket Fighter, Dan's story begins with himself looking to expand his Saikyo-ryu school, and subsequently chooses Sakura as his student. Upon meeting Sakura, he offers to teach her his style, and she accepts after Dan defeats her in a fight. Sakura masters the entire Saikyo-ryuu style, after which writing a letter to Dan commenting on how she has purposely forgotten the entire Saikyo-ryuu style, calling his moves "retarded", thus humiliating Dan. In the Street Fighter AlphaStreet Fighter Alpha animated OVA, Dan is seen fighting Vega, as well as Birdie in another scene. Dan loses and is brutally defeated in both battles. Connections With Other Games/Media Edit Ran Hibiki, from the Rival Schools fighting game series, shares the same last name as Dan as well as some few similarities with him and it has been speculated that they are related to each other. A classmate of Ran is Chairperson, who learned to fight from a Saikyou-Ryu correspondence course. Sean from the Street Fighter III series, a student of Ken Masters who has a very limited mastery of the fighting style, has the win quotes, "Don't call me Dan!", "Rule #1: Never give up! Rule #2: Don't fight me! Rule #3: Don't be like Dan!" and "You fight like Dan. You ARE Dan!". In a Kamen Rider Decade episode, in which the characters are in Kamen Rider Hibiki's episode, Kadoya Tsukasa wears a pink kimono. This may be a reference to Dan, since the world's Rider shares his name with Dan's surname. GameplayEdit Due to his somewhat clumsy, slow and short moves, Dan is widely regarded as a joke character, not recommended to be used for any serious competition. He is also popular as a handicap to skilled players, as his weakness makes winning matches more difficult when against notably powerful characters such as Ryu, Ken and Charlie. As such, selecting Dan can in itself be seen as a taunt, since doing so implies high confidence that a player is superior in skill to his or her opponent. Strangely enough, the sheer comedy value made Dan a campy fan favorite of sorts. Although generally inferior to Ryu and Ken, in some areas he is slightly stronger. For instance his Dankukyaku can not be ducked under like Ryu and Ken's Tatsumaki Senpukyaku can, his taunt jump, allows him to jump higher than Ryu and Ken normally and it can interrupt in-air attacks. Each taunt also increases his super bar where Ryu and Ken's do not and his crouching and rolling taught and be good for avoiding and interrupting most attacks. He is difficult to use but he can be better than some of the other characters if used properly.

In Street Fighter IV, however, although his comical mannerisms remain intact, Dan appears to be more serious, and his moves have been notably upgraded to do equal damage to the those of the other mid-weight characters. His buffs and updates to his moves in the more recent games have actually allowed Dan to become a legitimate choice in the tournament setting, to the point that players say that Dan's greatest strength is the illusion that he's supposed to be bad.

Techniques Edit In the games he appears in, Dan is distinguished from Ryu and Ken by his ineffective special moves, such as a projectile with a comically short range (Gadouken, or Self-Taught Fist) and a triple-hitting flying kick that is easy to block (Dankukyaku, or Gale Kick); both are reminiscent of special attacks in Art of Fighting (if one had no Spirit Power in that game, special attacks become useless). Dan also possesses Koryuken, an anti-air uppercut (initially different, but eventually mimicking Ryu and Ken's Shoryuken) with very little horizontal range, during which he sometimes flashes and becomes completely invincible. He can also perform Premium Sign, where he autographs a portrait and flings it at the opponent. Dan has a move known as the Hisshou Buraiken, which is a standing parody of Ryo's flying Desperation move, the Ryuuko Ranbu. Dan also possesses a "Shoryu Reppa" type move called the Koryu Rekka, which was borrowed from the double uppercut at the end of Ryo's MAX Ryuuko Ranbu (he even imitates Ryo's "Kyokugen-ryuu Ougi!"/"Kyokugen-style secret!" yell that is used at the beginning of Ryuuko Ranbu, instead declaring "Saikyo-ryuu Ougi!"). Both moves have little to no range at all, and leave Dan wide open for attack if the moves are blocked.

Despite being the lowest tier amongst the main characters, Dan is still an above-average martial artist when compared to typical fighters. In the first volume of the manga Sakura Ganbaru!, Dan enters a street fighting competition and is shown doing rather well (though he admitted to using underhanded tactics, as he would "do anything to win"), only losing to Ken, who later went on to win the entire competition.

This seems to tie in to his appearance in Street Fighter IV, when he appears to be more serious, and his moves have been slightly upgraded in order to be balanced with other characters. He gains the new and quite powerful Haoh Gadouken Ultra Combo in Super Street Fighter IV, which is much similar to Ryo's super fireball. Dan's other Ultra in the Street Fighter IV series is Shisso Buraiken, which is basically his Hissho Buraiken, but he runs towards the opponent to connect. Similarly to the Haoh Gadouken, one can combo into the Shisso Buraiken with the Legendary Taunt.

TauntsEdit A running gag in all games that Dan appears in is his ability to taunt. In games where the player is limited to only one taunt, Dan is able to do an unlimited amount. Each Taunt also adds to his Super bar, generally (it varies by game) by a healthy amount. In Street Fighter IV, he is also able to perform a special Super Combo: the infamous "Super Taunt" (Chohatsu Dentetsu), which is simply a taunt dragged out for several seconds. It does absolutely no damage, and Dan is vulnerable throughout the entire escapade. It takes a whole Super Combo Gauge to perform. This attack is often seen as the ultimate insult, as it shows the player's confidence in victory enough to make him waste a chance at using a super move in favor of this, and performing it under any situation other than total victory is suicide. The interesting thing about this move is that Dan can perform his Ultra during the taunt, and, by starting this combo with the Gadouken, is the easiest way to hit with his Ultra.

Dan is one of only two characters in the Street Fighter series that has a super taunt, along with Sagat: Chouhatsu Densetsu (Legendary Taunt) and Chouhatsu Shinwa (Mythical Taunt).

Parody AttacksEdit In addition to his normal moveset, which parodies the moves used by "shoto"-style fighters, Dan has a move in some games known as the Otoko Michi (Way of the Man), which parodies Akuma's Shun Goku Satsu. The Otoko Michi is performed by doing the command for the Shun Goku Satsu in reverse. Depending on the game, the Otoko Michi can be as powerful as the Shun Goku Satsu, which can take off more than half of the opponent's lifebar, or it takes off a minimal amount of life from the opponent. In most versions, it leaves Dan with only 1% of his own life. Due to its slow speed and high costs, this move is considered highly unreliable and only used when absolute victory is certain. In Marvel vs. Capcom 2, it is the strongest single Hyper Combo in the game, even greater than the Shun Goku Satsu. In SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom, it not only does a considerable amount of damage when used, but he loses no life from performing it: this is due to the fact that it is his Exceed attack, all of which can only be done once per match and need a low amount of life remaining to become usable to begin with. Ironically, Dan parodies even more Kyokugen-style attacks in the SNK-produced games of the SNK vs. Capcom series. He gains the Gadou Sho Ko Ken (a Gadoken-ranged version of the Haoh Sho Ko Ken) in both SNK-produced games (as a Level 2 version of Shinkuu Gadoken in The Match of the Millennium, and a regular special move in SVC Chaos). In SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom, he also gains a parody version of Ryo's Tenchi Haoh Ken called Kyuukyoku Tenchi Gadou Zuki that is able to block any attack during the charge-up period, even normally unblockable moves, but does not do much damage and has an extremely long recovery time since Dan punches the opponent so hard that he breaks the bones in his hand, and needs some time to tend to it.

In Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, one can input a code just before the start of the match, in which Dan falls onto the ground, creating a comically huge explosion, instead of his normal entrance. He then gets up and the fight starts. This has absolutely no effect on gameplay.

Other Games Edit In the parody puzzle game Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, Dan's joke status continues. The gameplay in Puzzle Fighter revolves around setting up large blocks of "gems" to be broken, which will then drop countering gems on opponents in complex patterns in order to fill up their screens. Usually these attack gems fall in complex patterns designed to make it harder for opponents to successfully break them up. However, in Dan's case, every single gem dropped is red. This makes it comically easy for an opponent to break them all at once and create a massive counterattack that usually buries the Dan player completely. Perhaps even more so than in his traditional games, choosing Dan is considered the ultimate "sneer" to your opponent, since the amount of skill required to successfully play or beat someone else as Dan is so high that it is considered that no player of sound ability should ever lose to someone else playing as Dan. Stage ThemeEdit [1] [2] [3] [4] TriviaEdit Although Dan's face was originally designed to resemble Robert Garcia of Art of Fighting, his more recent portraits indicate that he may also be a spoof at Steven Seagal. Dan is one of the 19 characters in Street Fighter IV to not have second rivals in Super Street Fighter IV, despite having a ultra combo video to include his second rival (Sagat). The Dan is a Japanese mark of level, which is used in traditional fine arts and martial arts. In Street Fighter IV, Dan was unaware of the Second World Warrior Tournament, but in the non-canon UDON Comic Street Fighter II Turbo, Dan attempts to enter the finals of said tournament by stealing Guy's invitation. Guy lets him get away with it but Dan is unable to make good use of it as he is beaten by Sakura, after believing he was a contender by default. Using Dan's crouching and air taunt in SSFIV against an opponent allows him to attack, but not cause any harm to his opponent. Despite this, certain characters with counters will register them as "attacks". Additionally, using his air taunt as soon the jump animation starts increases his jumping height, making possible for him to dodge attacks such as a strong Shoryuken from Ryu, Ken, or Akuma. In the UDON comics Dan gets posessed by the Satsui no Hado for a moment. While dueling Sakura, he gets consumed by this power and kanji 'father' appears on his back as he tries to deliver an attack reminiscent of Shun Goku Satsu. In a typical Dan manner, while dashing towards Sakura, he trips on her school bag (losing the power in the process) allowing the girl to make short work of him. Later on in the UDON SFIV comic, Seth kidnaps Dan for the purposes of BLECE project which harnesses the power of Dark Hadou. According to a few of his in-game win quotes in SSFIV, Dan is unemployed, despite being able to pay for an infomercial that airs at 3 A.M, which should actually cost more than a phone bill, thus saying Dan does not set priority on his own account. According to Dan-specific win quotes in SFIV and SSFIV, most characters find Dan "entertaining", while others "can't stand him" or believe he is "all talk". Abel in particular even thanks him for the laughs. Nothing is ever stated about Dan's mother; she was possibly/most likely dead before the events pre-dating Street Fighter, although there's no source confirming that. It is possible that Sakura based her Focus Attack on Dan's EX Dankukyaku. Dan's Gadouken range has noticeably increased since his last canonical appearance in Street Fighter Alpha 3; it is much more reliable, but at the cost of him having a much slower release. The animation is also different: he extends his arm forward while launching the projectile. Dan's second costume color for his original costume is a reference to Ryo Sakazaki's default costume in the Art of Fighting and King of Fighters series. Capcom has a history of putting in subtle nods to Dan's origins as a parody of SNK's fighting games, and Dan has had the orange gi/blue shirt costume since Alpha. Dan's second alternate costume in Super Street Fighter IV might be a reference to what tribes in South America wear. Similarly, Blanka's second alternate costume is Dan's gi and outfit. These costumes are references to Dan and Blanka's friendship. In the patch for Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, Capcom has again improved Dan, albeit mildly on a basis of comparison to other characters. This is what Capcom stated: "In a lot of ways, we are aiming to make this the strongest version of Dan ever in a Street Fighter Series, so we have changed many things." Dan is seen in Sentinel's ending in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, where he is grabbed by a Sentinel for observation. In SVC Chaos Dan is the only person in the roster to not be transformed by the Red Arremer due to his lack of power. In Street Fighter IV when Dan wins against Sagat in arcade mode he says "Now I can finally visit my father's grave without being ashamed". This is a reference to Guile's qoute when he wins against M.Bison in arcade mode he says "Now I can finally visit Charlie's grave without being ashamed". Gallery Edit

All glory to Dan Habiki[edit]

Street Fighter Wiki FTW

"I hope you're ready for a beating!" —Dan, Street Fighter IV Dan Hibiki (火引 弾, Hibiki Dan) is a character from Capcom's Street Fighter series of fighting games. Dan is consistently portrayed as an arrogant, overconfident, awesome, yet utterly feeble character in many of the games he is featured in. He is widely considered to be the comic relief of the series because of his over-the-top poses, battle cries, and overall weak moveset. In essence, Dan is considered to be a joke character. In his most recent appearance in the home versions of Street Fighter IV, however, his moves have been slightly upgraded in order to be balanced with other characters.

Dan is usually given obnoxious or exaggerated attention; for example, in SFA2's intro. Added by HavocReaper48 Not long after Street Fighter II was released, rival video game company SNK released a fighting game, called Art of Fighting, starring Ryo Sakazaki and Robert Garcia. Ryo managed to bear a similarity in appearance, fighting style, and name to Ryu, and had the sa


I am a random interrupting headline!!! XD[edit]

Anyways...[edit]

me hair color as Ken. In humorous retaliation, Capcom included Dan as a secret character in Street Fighter Alpha. Connections to SNK CharactersEdit Dan's pink clothing is a spoof of Ryo's orange attire, while his head is a spoof of Robert's; he also taunts similarly to Yuri. Instead of using both hands to unleash his Gadouken (as Ryu, Ken, and even Sakura do for the Hadouken), he propels it with one hand, like Ryo, Robert and Yuri do for the Ko-oh-ken (that Robert calls Ryuugeki-ken). Dan can also taunt infinitely like the Art of Fighting games, unlike his fellow Street Fighter characters. In addition, he also had four unique taunts- one when he stands up, one crouching down, a short one when jumping, and a taunt exclusive to one of his special moves, Roll Taunt. Each taunt slightly fills up his Super Gauge. Dan's fighting style, the Saikyo-ryuu, is a parody of Kyokugen-ryuu, the fighting style used by Ryo and Robert. To further the parody, Saikyo-ryuu means "Strongest style" while Kyokugen-ryuu means "Extreme Style."

In Street Fighter Alpha 2, Dan is Ken's secret challenger (reached by finishing several fights in a row with Super Combos) and they exchange dialog, one line of which is Ken asking Dan if he knows the "art of fighting."

One of Dan's win quotes in Street Fighter Alpha 3 is "I hate the art of fighting, but I want to be the king of fighters!"; this is a direct reference to Art of Fighting and The King of Fighters series by SNK.


Dan's sister stopping him from killing Cyber Akuma Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In Dan's ending in Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, Dan's sister appears to prevent him finishing off Cyber-Akuma saying "Don't you know who he is? He's our...", parodying the ending of the original Art of Fighting where Ryo was about to kill Mr. Karate before being told he is their father by Yuri (Dan's sister even looks like her). In the SNK vs. Capcom series (more specifically in SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom), there is a running gag where Dan is often mistaken for Ryo or Robert, even by himself in a mirror match (Kasumi Todoh is one example: even after Dan tells her he is not Robert, she still does not believe him). In these games, Dan parodies even more of Ryo's attacks. He also mistook Mr. Karate for his father's ghost (though, in his ending in Neo Geo Pocket's SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium, he seems to acknowledge that Takuma and Go are different people). In Ryo's ending for Capcom vs. SNK 2, it is hinted that Dan came to the Sakazakis' Kyokugenryu Karate school to sign up.

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In Pocket Fighter, Dan can call on the ghost of his father, whose face resembles the same tengu mask as Mr. Karate. This is mirrored in Capcom's official artwork for Street Fighter Alpha; earlier works featured Dan's father as wearing a tengu mask while later ones show that the long nose was indeed a feature of Go Hibiki. All other instances of Go Hibiki's face are obscured, such as the image of young Sagat clutching Go's face shown at right. AppearanceEdit Dan has a similar outfit to Ryu and Ken, wearing a traditional Karate gi. Dan also wears a black undershirt like Ryo. His head and face closely resembles Robert from Art of Fighting, while his outfit is bright pink, reminiscent of Ryo's orange outfit in Art of Fighting. Coincidentally, orange is one of Dan's primary alternate colors. His fighting stance is similar to Ken and Ryu's (being how he was simply a palette-swap of those two); in later games, it is more "loose" and animated. As seen below, his appearance in Capcom VS. SNK 2 is more distinct in that he's lighter on his feet and his arms are positioned differently. In Street Fighter IV', he forgoes bouncing around in his stance in favor of hand and arm movements reminiscent of Tai Chi movements. Many of his mannerisms directly mirror those of Yuri Sakazaki.

Story Edit According to the Super Street Fighter IV blog, Dan was born on November 25. Dan's father, Gou, was a mixed martial artist and a rival of Sagat. Gou gouged out Sagat's right eye and Sagat beat him to death in retaliation. Because of this, Dan sought revenge on Sagat, 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 Saikyo-ryu or, "The Strongest Style," despite the complete weakness of his techniques. He set on a quest to find Sagat and take vengeance for his father's death. Sagat kills Dan's father Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 Street Fighter Alpha 2Edit In Street Fighter Alpha 2, Dan finds Sagat to avenge his father's death. During Dan's travels, he encounters Guy, who calls his moves cute. Guy then explains he is looking to challenge fighters. Dan accepts his challenge and fights Guy. He eventually encounters Sagat. When Dan taunts him on wanting to make the left eye match the right, Sagat comments that the man who took out his right eye paid with his life. Angered, Dan brands Sagat a murderer, knowing the man was his father. Sagat then comments that Dan should join his father, which then led to their fight. Dan's story is canonical; after their fight, Dan wins, although he doesn't know Sagat let him win, realizing how anger makes people do things they will regret. Satisfied that he finally avenged his father's death, Dan returns to Hong Kong and sets up his Saikyo-ryu Dojo. Street Fighter Alpha 3Edit

Dan opens his Dojo Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 "Dan finally defeated the man who killed his father... He made his own fighting style called Saikyo, "the strongest". But his ambitions will not rest until he achieves perfection..." —Dan's Street Fighter Alpha 3 Profile Dan travels the world, promoting Saikyo-ryu, until Chun-Li comes and questions him and asks if he is involved with Shadaloo. Dan fights her, wins and flees. While back in Thailand, he fights Sagat, hoping to take him under his wing, but refuses. After winning, he meets M. Bison, leader of Shadaloo and Sagat's employer, Dan remembers his fight with Chun-Li, blames him for it, then Bison orders Balrog to fight him. He wins, then fights Bison, after that, he finishes Bison off with his Hisshou Buraiken. He then turns the Psycho Drive Plant into his Saikyo Thailand dojo, where he and his friend Blanka, who he correctly refers to as Jimmy, learn Rolling Attack. Later, Charlie, who arrived late, comes with a flight squad and bombs the base, and Dan and Blanka escape. In an unknown time, he takes Sakura, the number 1 fan of his former master's student (Ryu) under his wing. However, while Sakura doesn't seem to mind Dan, he is unaware that she's using him to get to Ryu. Street Fighter IV Edit In Street Fighter IV, Dan is shown to be annoyed that he wasn't told of the second World Warrior Tournament, asking Blanka whether the crowds were bored to tears without a star like him to provide real action; in reality, Blanka tried to get in contact with him about the tournament, but couldn't, as Dan hadn't paid his phone bill and his phone was disconnected. Sakura also asks Dan whether he's heard anything about Ryu lately, since Dan has claimed that Ryu was an apprentice of his. To keep up this appearance, Dan says that Ken Masters is rumored to be entering the next World Tournament, which makes it likely that Ryu will also show up. Dan enters the new tournament to spread the popularity of his Saikyo style[2], barely getting enough points to qualify as a last-minute entry. At the end of the tournament, Dan is seen at the S.I.N. base, bumping into Blanka before an explosion threatens to engulf them both. They are saved by Ryu and Sakura, at which point Dan tells them to be more careful, as "even with [his] awesome powers" they may not survive the next wave. He then makes his exit to the amazement of all.[2] In an effort to capitalize on his association with great fighters, he broadcasts a commercial advertising the Saikyo-ryu dojo, telling people to drop in to enroll (his phone is still disconnected). However, when no-one turns up, S

Other AppearancesEdit Street Fighter X TekkenEdit

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In the debut trailer of the crossover game, Street Fighter X Tekken, Dan is badly beaten and "killed" by Kazuya Mishima from the Tekken universe,[4] during which he elaborates on events regarding the plot. However, he makes a non-playable apearance as the training mode instructor. He is also shown to be trapped in Pandora in Sakura and Blanka's ending. Pocket Fighter Edit

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In the unofficial events of Pocket Fighter, Dan's story begins with himself looking to expand his Saikyo-ryu school, and subsequently chooses Sakura as his student. Upon meeting Sakura, he offers to teach her his style, and she accepts after Dan defeats her in a fight. Sakura masters the entire Saikyo-ryuu style, after which writing a letter to Dan commenting on how she has purposely forgotten the entire Saikyo-ryuu style, calling his moves "retarded", thus humiliating Dan. In the Street Fighter AlphaStreet Fighter Alpha animated OVA, Dan is seen fighting Vega, as well as Birdie in another scene. Dan loses and is brutally defeated in both battles. Connections With Other Games/Media Edit Ran Hibiki, from the Rival Schools fighting game series, shares the same last name as Dan as well as some few similarities with him and it has been speculated that they are related to each other. A classmate of Ran is Chairperson, who learned to fight from a Saikyou-Ryu correspondence course. Sean from the Street Fighter III series, a student of Ken Masters who has a very limited mastery of the fighting style, has the win quotes, "Don't call me Dan!", "Rule #1: Never give up! Rule #2: Don't fight me! Rule #3: Don't be like Dan!" and "You fight like Dan. You ARE Dan!". In a Kamen Rider Decade episode, in which the characters are in Kamen Rider Hibiki's episode, Kadoya Tsukasa wears a pink kimono. This may be a reference to Dan, since the world's Rider shares his name with Dan's surname. GameplayEdit Due to his somewhat clumsy, slow and short moves, Dan is widely regarded as a joke character, not recommended to be used for any serious competition. He is also popular as a handicap to skilled players, as his weakness makes winning matches more difficult when against notably powerful characters such as Ryu, Ken and Charlie. As such, selecting Dan can in itself be seen as a taunt, since doing so implies high confidence that a player is superior in skill to his or her opponent. Strangely enough, the sheer comedy value made Dan a campy fan favorite of sorts. Although generally inferior to Ryu and Ken, in some areas he is slightly stronger. For instance his Dankukyaku can not be ducked under like Ryu and Ken's Tatsumaki Senpukyaku can, his taunt jump, allows him to jump higher than Ryu and Ken normally and it can interrupt in-air attacks. Each taunt also increases his super bar where Ryu and Ken's do not and his crouching and rolling taught and be good for avoiding and interrupting most attacks. He is difficult to use but he can be better than some of the other characters if used properly.

In Street Fighter IV, however, although his comical mannerisms remain intact, Dan appears to be more serious, and his moves have been notably upgraded to do equal damage to the those of the other mid-weight characters. His buffs and updates to his moves in the more recent games have actually allowed Dan to become a legitimate choice in the tournament setting, to the point that players say that Dan's greatest strength is the illusion that he's supposed to be bad.

Techniques Edit In the games he appears in, Dan is distinguished from Ryu and Ken by his ineffective special moves, such as a projectile with a comically short range (Gadouken, or Self-Taught Fist) and a triple-hitting flying kick that is easy to block (Dankukyaku, or Gale Kick); both are reminiscent of special attacks in Art of Fighting (if one had no Spirit Power in that game, special attacks become useless). Dan also possesses Koryuken, an anti-air uppercut (initially different, but eventually mimicking Ryu and Ken's Shoryuken) with very little horizontal range, during which he sometimes flashes and becomes completely invincible. He can also perform Premium Sign, where he autographs a portrait and flings it at the opponent. Dan has a move known as the Hisshou Buraiken, which is a standing parody of Ryo's flying Desperation move, the Ryuuko Ranbu. Dan also possesses a "Shoryu Reppa" type move called the Koryu Rekka, which was borrowed from the double uppercut at the end of Ryo's MAX Ryuuko Ranbu (he even imitates Ryo's "Kyokugen-ryuu Ougi!"/"Kyokugen-style secret!" yell that is used at the beginning of Ryuuko Ranbu, instead declaring "Saikyo-ryuu Ougi!"). Both moves have little to no range at all, and leave Dan wide open for attack if the moves are blocked.

Despite being the lowest tier amongst the main characters, Dan is still an above-average martial artist when compared to typical fighters. In the first volume of the manga Sakura Ganbaru!, Dan enters a street fighting competition and is shown doing rather well (though he admitted to using underhanded tactics, as he would "do anything to win"), only losing to Ken, who later went on to win the entire competition.

This seems to tie in to his appearance in Street Fighter IV, when he appears to be more serious, and his moves have been slightly upgraded in order to be balanced with other characters. He gains the new and quite powerful Haoh Gadouken Ultra Combo in Super Street Fighter IV, which is much similar to Ryo's super fireball. Dan's other Ultra in the Street Fighter IV series is Shisso Buraiken, which is basically his Hissho Buraiken, but he runs towards the opponent to connect. Similarly to the Haoh Gadouken, one can combo into the Shisso Buraiken with the Legendary Taunt.

TauntsEdit A running gag in all games that Dan appears in is his ability to taunt. In games where the player is limited to only one taunt, Dan is able to do an unlimited amount. Each Taunt also adds to his Super bar, generally (it varies by game) by a healthy amount. In Street Fighter IV, he is also able to perform a special Super Combo: the infamous "Super Taunt" (Chohatsu Dentetsu), which is simply a taunt dragged out for several seconds. It does absolutely no damage, and Dan is vulnerable throughout the entire escapade. It takes a whole Super Combo Gauge to perform. This attack is often seen as the ultimate insult, as it shows the player's confidence in victory enough to make him waste a chance at using a super move in favor of this, and performing it under any situation other than total victory is suicide. The interesting thing about this move is that Dan can perform his Ultra during the taunt, and, by starting this combo with the Gadouken, is the easiest way to hit with his Ultra.

Dan is one of only two characters in the Street Fighter series that has a super taunt, along with Sagat: Chouhatsu Densetsu (Legendary Taunt) and Chouhatsu Shinwa (Mythical Taunt).

Parody AttacksEdit In addition to his normal moveset, which parodies the moves used by "shoto"-style fighters, Dan has a move in some games known as the Otoko Michi (Way of the Man), which parodies Akuma's Shun Goku Satsu. The Otoko Michi is performed by doing the command for the Shun Goku Satsu in reverse. Depending on the game, the Otoko Michi can be as powerful as the Shun Goku Satsu, which can take off more than half of the opponent's lifebar, or it takes off a minimal amount of life from the opponent. In most versions, it leaves Dan with only 1% of his own life. Due to its slow speed and high costs, this move is considered highly unreliable and only used when absolute victory is certain. In Marvel vs. Capcom 2, it is the strongest single Hyper Combo in the game, even greater than the Shun Goku Satsu. In SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom, it not only does a considerable amount of damage when used, but he loses no life from performing it: this is due to the fact that it is his Exceed attack, all of which can only be done once per match and need a low amount of life remaining to become usable to begin with. Ironically, Dan parodies even more Kyokugen-style attacks in the SNK-produced games of the SNK vs. Capcom series. He gains the Gadou Sho Ko Ken (a Gadoken-ranged version of the Haoh Sho Ko Ken) in both SNK-produced games (as a Level 2 version of Shinkuu Gadoken in The Match of the Millennium, and a regular special move in SVC Chaos). In SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom, he also gains a parody version of Ryo's Tenchi Haoh Ken called Kyuukyoku Tenchi Gadou Zuki that is able to block any attack during the charge-up period, even normally unblockable moves, but does not do much damage and has an extremely long recovery time since Dan punches the opponent so hard that he breaks the bones in his hand, and needs some time to tend to it.

In Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, one can input a code just before the start of the match, in which Dan falls onto the ground, creating a comically huge explosion, instead of his normal entrance. He then gets up and the fight starts. This has absolutely no effect on gameplay.

Other Games Edit In the parody puzzle game Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, Dan's joke status continues. The gameplay in Puzzle Fighter revolves around setting up large blocks of "gems" to be broken, which will then drop countering gems on opponents in complex patterns in order to fill up their screens. Usually these attack gems fall in complex patterns designed to make it harder for opponents to successfully break them up. However, in Dan's case, every single gem dropped is red. This makes it comically easy for an opponent to break them all at once and create a massive counterattack that usually buries the Dan player completely. Perhaps even more so than in his traditional games, choosing Dan is considered the ultimate "sneer" to your opponent, since the amount of skill required to successfully play or beat someone else as Dan is so high that it is considered that no player of sound ability should ever lose to someone else playing as Dan. Stage ThemeEdit [1] [2] [3] [4] TriviaEdit Although Dan's face was originally designed to resemble Robert Garcia of Art of Fighting, his more recent portraits indicate that he may also be a spoof at Steven Seagal. Dan is one of the 19 characters in Street Fighter IV to not have second rivals in Super Street Fighter IV, despite having a ultra combo video to include his second rival (Sagat). The Dan is a Japanese mark of level, which is used in traditional fine arts and martial arts. In Street Fighter IV, Dan was unaware of the Second World Warrior Tournament, but in the non-canon UDON Comic Street Fighter II Turbo, Dan attempts to enter the finals of said tournament by stealing Guy's invitation. Guy lets him get away with it but Dan is unable to make good use of it as he is beaten by Sakura, after believing he was a contender by default. Using Dan's crouching and air taunt in SSFIV against an opponent allows him to attack, but not cause any harm to his opponent. Despite this, certain characters with counters will register them as "attacks". Additionally, using his air taunt as soon the jump animation starts increases his jumping height, making possible for him to dodge attacks such as a strong Shoryuken from Ryu, Ken, or Akuma. In the UDON comics Dan gets posessed by the Satsui no Hado for a moment. While dueling Sakura, he gets consumed by this power and kanji 'father' appears on his back as he tries to deliver an attack reminiscent of Shun Goku Satsu. In a typical Dan manner, while dashing towards Sakura, he trips on her school bag (losing the power in the process) allowing the girl to make short work of him. Later on in the UDON SFIV comic, Seth kidnaps Dan for the purposes of BLECE project which harnesses the power of Dark Hadou. According to a few of his in-game win quotes in SSFIV, Dan is unemployed, despite being able to pay for an infomercial that airs at 3 A.M, which should actually cost more than a phone bill, thus saying Dan does not set priority on his own account. According to Dan-specific win quotes in SFIV and SSFIV, most characters find Dan "entertaining", while others "can't stand him" or believe he is "all talk". Abel in particular even thanks him for the laughs. Nothing is ever stated about Dan's mother; she was possibly/most likely dead before the events pre-dating Street Fighter, although there's no source confirming that. It is possible that Sakura based her Focus Attack on Dan's EX Dankukyaku. Dan's Gadouken range has noticeably increased since his last canonical appearance in Street Fighter Alpha 3; it is much more reliable, but at the cost of him having a much slower release. The animation is also different: he extends his arm forward while launching the projectile. Dan's second costume color for his original costume is a reference to Ryo Sakazaki's default costume in the Art of Fighting and King of Fighters series. Capcom has a history of putting in subtle nods to Dan's origins as a parody of SNK's fighting games, and Dan has had the orange gi/blue shirt costume since Alpha. Dan's second alternate costume in Super Street Fighter IV might be a reference to what tribes in South America wear. Similarly, Blanka's second alternate costume is Dan's gi and outfit. These costumes are references to Dan and Blanka's friendship. In the patch for Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, Capcom has again improved Dan, albeit mildly on a basis of comparison to other characters. This is what Capcom stated: "In a lot of ways, we are aiming to make this the strongest version of Dan ever in a Street Fighter Series, so we have changed many things." Dan is seen in Sentinel's ending in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, where he is grabbed by a Sentinel for observation. In SVC Chaos Dan is the only person in the roster to not be transformed by the Red Arremer due to his lack of power. In Street Fighter IV when Dan wins against Sagat in arcade mode he says "Now I can finally visit my father's grave without being ashamed". This is a reference to Guile's qoute when he wins against M.Bison in arcade mode he says "Now I can finally visit Charlie's grave without being ashamed". Gallery Edit

All glory to Dan Habiki[edit]

Street Fighter Wiki FTW

"I hope you're ready for a beating!" —Dan, Street Fighter IV Dan Hibiki (火引 弾, Hibiki Dan) is a character from Capcom's Street Fighter series of fighting games. Dan is consistently portrayed as an arrogant, overconfident, awesome, yet utterly feeble character in many of the games he is featured in. He is widely considered to be the comic relief of the series because of his over-the-top poses, battle cries, and overall weak moveset. In essence, Dan is considered to be a joke character. In his most recent appearance in the home versions of Street Fighter IV, however, his moves have been slightly upgraded in order to be balanced with other characters.

Dan is usually given obnoxious or exaggerated attention; for example, in SFA2's intro. Added by HavocReaper48 Not long after Street Fighter II was released, rival video game company SNK released a fighting game, called Art of Fighting, starring Ryo Sakazaki and Robert Garcia. Ryo managed to bear a similarity in appearance, fighting style, and name to Ryu, and had the sa


I am a random interrupting headline!!! XD[edit]

Anyways...[edit]

me hair color as Ken. In humorous retaliation, Capcom included Dan as a secret character in Street Fighter Alpha. Connections to SNK CharactersEdit Dan's pink clothing is a spoof of Ryo's orange attire, while his head is a spoof of Robert's; he also taunts similarly to Yuri. Instead of using both hands to unleash his Gadouken (as Ryu, Ken, and even Sakura do for the Hadouken), he propels it with one hand, like Ryo, Robert and Yuri do for the Ko-oh-ken (that Robert calls Ryuugeki-ken). Dan can also taunt infinitely like the Art of Fighting games, unlike his fellow Street Fighter characters. In addition, he also had four unique taunts- one when he stands up, one crouching down, a short one when jumping, and a taunt exclusive to one of his special moves, Roll Taunt. Each taunt slightly fills up his Super Gauge. Dan's fighting style, the Saikyo-ryuu, is a parody of Kyokugen-ryuu, the fighting style used by Ryo and Robert. To further the parody, Saikyo-ryuu means "Strongest style" while Kyokugen-ryuu means "Extreme Style."

In Street Fighter Alpha 2, Dan is Ken's secret challenger (reached by finishing several fights in a row with Super Combos) and they exchange dialog, one line of which is Ken asking Dan if he knows the "art of fighting."

One of Dan's win quotes in Street Fighter Alpha 3 is "I hate the art of fighting, but I want to be the king of fighters!"; this is a direct reference to Art of Fighting and The King of Fighters series by SNK.


Dan's sister stopping him from killing Cyber Akuma Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In Dan's ending in Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, Dan's sister appears to prevent him finishing off Cyber-Akuma saying "Don't you know who he is? He's our...", parodying the ending of the original Art of Fighting where Ryo was about to kill Mr. Karate before being told he is their father by Yuri (Dan's sister even looks like her). In the SNK vs. Capcom series (more specifically in SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom), there is a running gag where Dan is often mistaken for Ryo or Robert, even by himself in a mirror match (Kasumi Todoh is one example: even after Dan tells her he is not Robert, she still does not believe him). In these games, Dan parodies even more of Ryo's attacks. He also mistook Mr. Karate for his father's ghost (though, in his ending in Neo Geo Pocket's SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium, he seems to acknowledge that Takuma and Go are different people). In Ryo's ending for Capcom vs. SNK 2, it is hinted that Dan came to the Sakazakis' Kyokugenryu Karate school to sign up.

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In Pocket Fighter, Dan can call on the ghost of his father, whose face resembles the same tengu mask as Mr. Karate. This is mirrored in Capcom's official artwork for Street Fighter Alpha; earlier works featured Dan's father as wearing a tengu mask while later ones show that the long nose was indeed a feature of Go Hibiki. All other instances of Go Hibiki's face are obscured, such as the image of young Sagat clutching Go's face shown at right. AppearanceEdit Dan has a similar outfit to Ryu and Ken, wearing a traditional Karate gi. Dan also wears a black undershirt like Ryo. His head and face closely resembles Robert from Art of Fighting, while his outfit is bright pink, reminiscent of Ryo's orange outfit in Art of Fighting. Coincidentally, orange is one of Dan's primary alternate colors. His fighting stance is similar to Ken and Ryu's (being how he was simply a palette-swap of those two); in later games, it is more "loose" and animated. As seen below, his appearance in Capcom VS. SNK 2 is more distinct in that he's lighter on his feet and his arms are positioned differently. In Street Fighter IV', he forgoes bouncing around in his stance in favor of hand and arm movements reminiscent of Tai Chi movements. Many of his mannerisms directly mirror those of Yuri Sakazaki.

Story Edit According to the Super Street Fighter IV blog, Dan was born on November 25. Dan's father, Gou, was a mixed martial artist and a rival of Sagat. Gou gouged out Sagat's right eye and Sagat beat him to death in retaliation. Because of this, Dan sought revenge on Sagat, 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 Saikyo-ryu or, "The Strongest Style," despite the complete weakness of his techniques. He set on a quest to find Sagat and take vengeance for his father's death. Sagat kills Dan's father Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 Street Fighter Alpha 2Edit In Street Fighter Alpha 2, Dan finds Sagat to avenge his father's death. During Dan's travels, he encounters Guy, who calls his moves cute. Guy then explains he is looking to challenge fighters. Dan accepts his challenge and fights Guy. He eventually encounters Sagat. When Dan taunts him on wanting to make the left eye match the right, Sagat comments that the man who took out his right eye paid with his life. Angered, Dan brands Sagat a murderer, knowing the man was his father. Sagat then comments that Dan should join his father, which then led to their fight. Dan's story is canonical; after their fight, Dan wins, although he doesn't know Sagat let him win, realizing how anger makes people do things they will regret. Satisfied that he finally avenged his father's death, Dan returns to Hong Kong and sets up his Saikyo-ryu Dojo. Street Fighter Alpha 3Edit

Dan opens his Dojo Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 "Dan finally defeated the man who killed his father... He made his own fighting style called Saikyo, "the strongest". But his ambitions will not rest until he achieves perfection..." —Dan's Street Fighter Alpha 3 Profile Dan travels the world, promoting Saikyo-ryu, until Chun-Li comes and questions him and asks if he is involved with Shadaloo. Dan fights her, wins and flees. While back in Thailand, he fights Sagat, hoping to take him under his wing, but refuses. After winning, he meets M. Bison, leader of Shadaloo and Sagat's employer, Dan remembers his fight with Chun-Li, blames him for it, then Bison orders Balrog to fight him. He wins, then fights Bison, after that, he finishes Bison off with his Hisshou Buraiken. He then turns the Psycho Drive Plant into his Saikyo Thailand dojo, where he and his friend Blanka, who he correctly refers to as Jimmy, learn Rolling Attack. Later, Charlie, who arrived late, comes with a flight squad and bombs the base, and Dan and Blanka escape. In an unknown time, he takes Sakura, the number 1 fan of his former master's student (Ryu) under his wing. However, while Sakura doesn't seem to mind Dan, he is unaware that she's using him to get to Ryu. Street Fighter IV Edit In Street Fighter IV, Dan is shown to be annoyed that he wasn't told of the second World Warrior Tournament, asking Blanka whether the crowds were bored to tears without a star like him to provide real action; in reality, Blanka tried to get in contact with him about the tournament, but couldn't, as Dan hadn't paid his phone bill and his phone was disconnected. Sakura also asks Dan whether he's heard anything about Ryu lately, since Dan has claimed that Ryu was an apprentice of his. To keep up this appearance, Dan says that Ken Masters is rumored to be entering the next World Tournament, which makes it likely that Ryu will also show up. Dan enters the new tournament to spread the popularity of his Saikyo style[2], barely getting enough points to qualify as a last-minute entry. At the end of the tournament, Dan is seen at the S.I.N. base, bumping into Blanka before an explosion threatens to engulf them both. They are saved by Ryu and Sakura, at which point Dan tells them to be more careful, as "even with [his] awesome powers" they may not survive the next wave. He then makes his exit to the amazement of all.[2] In an effort to capitalize on his association with great fighters, he broadcasts a commercial advertising the Saikyo-ryu dojo, telling people to drop in to enroll (his phone is still disconnected). However, when no-one turns up, S

akura points out that the ad didn't contain the dojo's address, whereupon Dan realizes his mistake and screams.[3]

Other AppearancesEdit Street Fighter X TekkenEdit

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In the debut trailer of the crossover game, Street Fighter X Tekken, Dan is badly beaten and "killed" by Kazuya Mishima from the Tekken universe,[4] during which he elaborates on events regarding the plot. However, he makes a non-playable apearance as the training mode instructor. He is also shown to be trapped in Pandora in Sakura and Blanka's ending. Pocket Fighter Edit

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In the unofficial events of Pocket Fighter, Dan's story begins with himself looking to expand his Saikyo-ryu school, and subsequently chooses Sakura as his student. Upon meeting Sakura, he offers to teach her his style, and she accepts after Dan defeats her in a fight. Sakura masters the entire Saikyo-ryuu style, after which writing a letter to Dan commenting on how she has purposely forgotten the entire Saikyo-ryuu style, calling his moves "retarded", thus humiliating Dan. In the Street Fighter AlphaStreet Fighter Alpha animated OVA, Dan is seen fighting Vega, as well as Birdie in another scene. Dan loses and is brutally defeated in both battles. Connections With Other Games/Media Edit Ran Hibiki, from the Rival Schools fighting game series, shares the same last name as Dan as well as some few similarities with him and it has been speculated that they are related to each other. A classmate of Ran is Chairperson, who learned to fight from a Saikyou-Ryu correspondence course. Sean from the Street Fighter III series, a student of Ken Masters who has a very limited mastery of the fighting style, has the win quotes, "Don't call me Dan!", "Rule #1: Never give up! Rule #2: Don't fight me! Rule #3: Don't be like Dan!" and "You fight like Dan. You ARE Dan!". In a Kamen Rider Decade episode, in which the characters are in Kamen Rider Hibiki's episode, Kadoya Tsukasa wears a pink kimono. This may be a reference to Dan, since the world's Rider shares his name with Dan's surname. GameplayEdit Due to his somewhat clumsy, slow and short moves, Dan is widely regarded as a joke character, not recommended to be used for any serious competition. He is also popular as a handicap to skilled players, as his weakness makes winning matches more difficult when against notably powerful characters such as Ryu, Ken and Charlie. As such, selecting Dan can in itself be seen as a taunt, since doing so implies high confidence that a player is superior in skill to his or her opponent. Strangely enough, the sheer comedy value made Dan a campy fan favorite of sorts. Although generally inferior to Ryu and Ken, in some areas he is slightly stronger. For instance his Dankukyaku can not be ducked under like Ryu and Ken's Tatsumaki Senpukyaku can, his taunt jump, allows him to jump higher than Ryu and Ken normally and it can interrupt in-air attacks. Each taunt also increases his super bar where Ryu and Ken's do not and his crouching and rolling taught and be good for avoiding and interrupting most attacks. He is difficult to use but he can be better than some of the other characters if used properly.

In Street Fighter IV, however, although his comical mannerisms remain intact, Dan appears to be more serious, and his moves have been notably upgraded to do equal damage to the those of the other mid-weight characters. His buffs and updates to his moves in the more recent games have actually allowed Dan to become a legitimate choice in the tournament setting, to the point that players say that Dan's greatest strength is the illusion that he's supposed to be bad.

Techniques Edit In the games he appears in, Dan is distinguished from Ryu and Ken by his ineffective special moves, such as a projectile with a comically short range (Gadouken, or Self-Taught Fist) and a triple-hitting flying kick that is easy to block (Dankukyaku, or Gale Kick); both are reminiscent of special attacks in Art of Fighting (if one had no Spirit Power in that game, special attacks become useless). Dan also possesses Koryuken, an anti-air uppercut (initially different, but eventually mimicking Ryu and Ken's Shoryuken) with very little horizontal range, during which he sometimes flashes and becomes completely invincible. He can also perform Premium Sign, where he autographs a portrait and flings it at the opponent. Dan has a move known as the Hisshou Buraiken, which is a standing parody of Ryo's flying Desperation move, the Ryuuko Ranbu. Dan also possesses a "Shoryu Reppa" type move called the Koryu Rekka, which was borrowed from the double uppercut at the end of Ryo's MAX Ryuuko Ranbu (he even imitates Ryo's "Kyokugen-ryuu Ougi!"/"Kyokugen-style secret!" yell that is used at the beginning of Ryuuko Ranbu, instead declaring "Saikyo-ryuu Ougi!"). Both moves have little to no range at all, and leave Dan wide open for attack if the moves are blocked.

Despite being the lowest tier amongst the main characters, Dan is still an above-average martial artist when compared to typical fighters. In the first volume of the manga Sakura Ganbaru!, Dan enters a street fighting competition and is shown doing rather well (though he admitted to using underhanded tactics, as he would "do anything to win"), only losing to Ken, who later went on to win the entire competition.

This seems to tie in to his appearance in Street Fighter IV, when he appears to be more serious, and his moves have been slightly upgraded in order to be balanced with other characters. He gains the new and quite powerful Haoh Gadouken Ultra Combo in Super Street Fighter IV, which is much similar to Ryo's super fireball. Dan's other Ultra in the Street Fighter IV series is Shisso Buraiken, which is basically his Hissho Buraiken, but he runs towards the opponent to connect. Similarly to the Haoh Gadouken, one can combo into the Shisso Buraiken with the Legendary Taunt.

TauntsEdit A running gag in all games that Dan appears in is his ability to taunt. In games where the player is limited to only one taunt, Dan is able to do an unlimited amount. Each Taunt also adds to his Super bar, generally (it varies by game) by a healthy amount. In Street Fighter IV, he is also able to perform a special Super Combo: the infamous "Super Taunt" (Chohatsu Dentetsu), which is simply a taunt dragged out for several seconds. It does absolutely no damage, and Dan is vulnerable throughout the entire escapade. It takes a whole Super Combo Gauge to perform. This attack is often seen as the ultimate insult, as it shows the player's confidence in victory enough to make him waste a chance at using a super move in favor of this, and performing it under any situation other than total victory is suicide. The interesting thing about this move is that Dan can perform his Ultra during the taunt, and, by starting this combo with the Gadouken, is the easiest way to hit with his Ultra.

Dan is one of only two characters in the Street Fighter series that has a super taunt, along with Sagat: Chouhatsu Densetsu (Legendary Taunt) and Chouhatsu Shinwa (Mythical Taunt).

Parody AttacksEdit In addition to his normal moveset, which parodies the moves used by "shoto"-style fighters, Dan has a move in some games known as the Otoko Michi (Way of the Man), which parodies Akuma's Shun Goku Satsu. The Otoko Michi is performed by doing the command for the Shun Goku Satsu in reverse. Depending on the game, the Otoko Michi can be as powerful as the Shun Goku Satsu, which can take off more than half of the opponent's lifebar, or it takes off a minimal amount of life from the opponent. In most versions, it leaves Dan with only 1% of his own life. Due to its slow speed and high costs, this move is considered highly unreliable and only used when absolute victory is certain. In Marvel vs. Capcom 2, it is the strongest single Hyper Combo in the game, even greater than the Shun Goku Satsu. In SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom, it not only does a considerable amount of damage when used, but he loses no life from performing it: this is due to the fact that it is his Exceed attack, all of which can only be done once per match and need a low amount of life remaining to become usable to begin with. Ironically, Dan parodies even more Kyokugen-style attacks in the SNK-produced games of the SNK vs. Capcom series. He gains the Gadou Sho Ko Ken (a Gadoken-ranged version of the Haoh Sho Ko Ken) in both SNK-produced games (as a Level 2 version of Shinkuu Gadoken in The Match of the Millennium, and a regular special move in SVC Chaos). In SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom, he also gains a parody version of Ryo's Tenchi Haoh Ken called Kyuukyoku Tenchi Gadou Zuki that is able to block any attack during the charge-up period, even normally unblockable moves, but does not do much damage and has an extremely long recovery time since Dan punches the opponent so hard that he breaks the bones in his hand, and needs some time to tend to it.

In Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, one can input a code just before the start of the match, in which Dan falls onto the ground, creating a comically huge explosion, instead of his normal entrance. He then gets up and the fight starts. This has absolutely no effect on gameplay.

Other Games Edit In the parody puzzle game Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, Dan's joke status continues. The gameplay in Puzzle Fighter revolves around setting up large blocks of "gems" to be broken, which will then drop countering gems on opponents in complex patterns in order to fill up their screens. Usually these attack gems fall in complex patterns designed to make it harder for opponents to successfully break them up. However, in Dan's case, every single gem dropped is red. This makes it comically easy for an opponent to break them all at once and create a massive counterattack that usually buries the Dan player completely. Perhaps even more so than in his traditional games, choosing Dan is considered the ultimate "sneer" to your opponent, since the amount of skill required to successfully play or beat someone else as Dan is so high that it is considered that no player of sound ability should ever lose to someone else playing as Dan. Stage ThemeEdit [1] [2] [3] [4] TriviaEdit Although Dan's face was originally designed to resemble Robert Garcia of Art of Fighting, his more recent portraits indicate that he may also be a spoof at Steven Seagal. Dan is one of the 19 characters in Street Fighter IV to not have second rivals in Super Street Fighter IV, despite having a ultra combo video to include his second rival (Sagat). The Dan is a Japanese mark of level, which is used in traditional fine arts and martial arts. In Street Fighter IV, Dan was unaware of the Second World Warrior Tournament, but in the non-canon UDON Comic Street Fighter II Turbo, Dan attempts to enter the finals of said tournament by stealing Guy's invitation. Guy lets him get away with it but Dan is unable to make good use of it as he is beaten by Sakura, after believing he was a contender by default. Using Dan's crouching and air taunt in SSFIV against an opponent allows him to attack, but not cause any harm to his opponent. Despite this, certain characters with counters will register them as "attacks". Additionally, using his air taunt as soon the jump animation starts increases his jumping height, making possible for him to dodge attacks such as a strong Shoryuken from Ryu, Ken, or Akuma. In the UDON comics Dan gets posessed by the Satsui no Hado for a moment. While dueling Sakura, he gets consumed by this power and kanji 'father' appears on his back as he tries to deliver an attack reminiscent of Shun Goku Satsu. In a typical Dan manner, while dashing towards Sakura, he trips on her school bag (losing the power in the process) allowing the girl to make short work of him. Later on in the UDON SFIV comic, Seth kidnaps Dan for the purposes of BLECE project which harnesses the power of Dark Hadou. According to a few of his in-game win quotes in SSFIV, Dan is unemployed, despite being able to pay for an infomercial that airs at 3 A.M, which should actually cost more than a phone bill, thus saying Dan does not set priority on his own account. According to Dan-specific win quotes in SFIV and SSFIV, most characters find Dan "entertaining", while others "can't stand him" or believe he is "all talk". Abel in particular even thanks him for the laughs. Nothing is ever stated about Dan's mother; she was possibly/most likely dead before the events pre-dating Street Fighter, although there's no source confirming that. It is possible that Sakura based her Focus Attack on Dan's EX Dankukyaku. Dan's Gadouken range has noticeably increased since his last canonical appearance in Street Fighter Alpha 3; it is much more reliable, but at the cost of him having a much slower release. The animation is also different: he extends his arm forward while launching the projectile. Dan's second costume color for his original costume is a reference to Ryo Sakazaki's default costume in the Art of Fighting and King of Fighters series. Capcom has a history of putting in subtle nods to Dan's origins as a parody of SNK's fighting games, and Dan has had the orange gi/blue shirt costume since Alpha. Dan's second alternate costume in Super Street Fighter IV might be a reference to what tribes in South America wear. Similarly, Blanka's second alternate costume is Dan's gi and outfit. These costumes are references to Dan and Blanka's friendship. In the patch for Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, Capcom has again improved Dan, albeit mildly on a basis of comparison to other characters. This is what Capcom stated: "In a lot of ways, we are aiming to make this the strongest version of Dan ever in a Street Fighter Series, so we have changed many things." Dan is seen in Sentinel's ending in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, where he is grabbed by a Sentinel for observation. In SVC Chaos Dan is the only person in the roster to not be transformed by the Red Arremer due to his lack of power. In Street Fighter IV when Dan wins against Sagat in arcade mode he says "Now I can finally visit my father's grave without being ashamed". This is a reference to Guile's qoute when he wins against M.Bison in arcade mode he says "Now I can finally visit Charlie's grave without being ashamed". Gallery Edit

All glory to Dan Habiki[edit]

Street Fighter Wiki FTW

"I hope you're ready for a beating!" —Dan, Street Fighter IV Dan Hibiki (火引 弾, Hibiki Dan) is a character from Capcom's Street Fighter series of fighting games. Dan is consistently portrayed as an arrogant, overconfident, awesome, yet utterly feeble character in many of the games he is featured in. He is widely considered to be the comic relief of the series because of his over-the-top poses, battle cries, and overall weak moveset. In essence, Dan is considered to be a joke character. In his most recent appearance in the home versions of Street Fighter IV, however, his moves have been slightly upgraded in order to be balanced with other characters.

Dan is usually given obnoxious or exaggerated attention; for example, in SFA2's intro. Added by HavocReaper48 Not long after Street Fighter II was released, rival video game company SNK released a fighting game, called Art of Fighting, starring Ryo Sakazaki and Robert Garcia. Ryo managed to bear a similarity in appearance, fighting style, and name to Ryu, and had the sa


I am a random interrupting headline!!! XD[edit]

Anyways...[edit]

me hair color as Ken. In humorous retaliation, Capcom included Dan as a secret character in Street Fighter Alpha. Connections to SNK CharactersEdit Dan's pink clothing is a spoof of Ryo's orange attire, while his head is a spoof of Robert's; he also taunts similarly to Yuri. Instead of using both hands to unleash his Gadouken (as Ryu, Ken, and even Sakura do for the Hadouken), he propels it with one hand, like Ryo, Robert and Yuri do for the Ko-oh-ken (that Robert calls Ryuugeki-ken). Dan can also taunt infinitely like the Art of Fighting games, unlike his fellow Street Fighter characters. In addition, he also had four unique taunts- one when he stands up, one crouching down, a short one when jumping, and a taunt exclusive to one of his special moves, Roll Taunt. Each taunt slightly fills up his Super Gauge. Dan's fighting style, the Saikyo-ryuu, is a parody of Kyokugen-ryuu, the fighting style used by Ryo and Robert. To further the parody, Saikyo-ryuu means "Strongest style" while Kyokugen-ryuu means "Extreme Style."

In Street Fighter Alpha 2, Dan is Ken's secret challenger (reached by finishing several fights in a row with Super Combos) and they exchange dialog, one line of which is Ken asking Dan if he knows the "art of fighting."

One of Dan's win quotes in Street Fighter Alpha 3 is "I hate the art of fighting, but I want to be the king of fighters!"; this is a direct reference to Art of Fighting and The King of Fighters series by SNK.


Dan's sister stopping him from killing Cyber Akuma Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In Dan's ending in Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, Dan's sister appears to prevent him finishing off Cyber-Akuma saying "Don't you know who he is? He's our...", parodying the ending of the original Art of Fighting where Ryo was about to kill Mr. Karate before being told he is their father by Yuri (Dan's sister even looks like her). In the SNK vs. Capcom series (more specifically in SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom), there is a running gag where Dan is often mistaken for Ryo or Robert, even by himself in a mirror match (Kasumi Todoh is one example: even after Dan tells her he is not Robert, she still does not believe him). In these games, Dan parodies even more of Ryo's attacks. He also mistook Mr. Karate for his father's ghost (though, in his ending in Neo Geo Pocket's SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium, he seems to acknowledge that Takuma and Go are different people). In Ryo's ending for Capcom vs. SNK 2, it is hinted that Dan came to the Sakazakis' Kyokugenryu Karate school to sign up.

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In Pocket Fighter, Dan can call on the ghost of his father, whose face resembles the same tengu mask as Mr. Karate. This is mirrored in Capcom's official artwork for Street Fighter Alpha; earlier works featured Dan's father as wearing a tengu mask while later ones show that the long nose was indeed a feature of Go Hibiki. All other instances of Go Hibiki's face are obscured, such as the image of young Sagat clutching Go's face shown at right. AppearanceEdit Dan has a similar outfit to Ryu and Ken, wearing a traditional Karate gi. Dan also wears a black undershirt like Ryo. His head and face closely resembles Robert from Art of Fighting, while his outfit is bright pink, reminiscent of Ryo's orange outfit in Art of Fighting. Coincidentally, orange is one of Dan's primary alternate colors. His fighting stance is similar to Ken and Ryu's (being how he was simply a palette-swap of those two); in later games, it is more "loose" and animated. As seen below, his appearance in Capcom VS. SNK 2 is more distinct in that he's lighter on his feet and his arms are positioned differently. In Street Fighter IV', he forgoes bouncing around in his stance in favor of hand and arm movements reminiscent of Tai Chi movements. Many of his mannerisms directly mirror those of Yuri Sakazaki.

Story Edit According to the Super Street Fighter IV blog, Dan was born on November 25. Dan's father, Gou, was a mixed martial artist and a rival of Sagat. Gou gouged out Sagat's right eye and Sagat beat him to death in retaliation. Because of this, Dan sought revenge on Sagat, 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 Saikyo-ryu or, "The Strongest Style," despite the complete weakness of his techniques. He set on a quest to find Sagat and take vengeance for his father's death. Sagat kills Dan's father Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 Street Fighter Alpha 2Edit In Street Fighter Alpha 2, Dan finds Sagat to avenge his father's death. During Dan's travels, he encounters Guy, who calls his moves cute. Guy then explains he is looking to challenge fighters. Dan accepts his challenge and fights Guy. He eventually encounters Sagat. When Dan taunts him on wanting to make the left eye match the right, Sagat comments that the man who took out his right eye paid with his life. Angered, Dan brands Sagat a murderer, knowing the man was his father. Sagat then comments that Dan should join his father, which then led to their fight. Dan's story is canonical; after their fight, Dan wins, although he doesn't know Sagat let him win, realizing how anger makes people do things they will regret. Satisfied that he finally avenged his father's death, Dan returns to Hong Kong and sets up his Saikyo-ryu Dojo. Street Fighter Alpha 3Edit

Dan opens his Dojo Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 "Dan finally defeated the man who killed his father... He made his own fighting style called Saikyo, "the strongest". But his ambitions will not rest until he achieves perfection..." —Dan's Street Fighter Alpha 3 Profile Dan travels the world, promoting Saikyo-ryu, until Chun-Li comes and questions him and asks if he is involved with Shadaloo. Dan fights her, wins and flees. While back in Thailand, he fights Sagat, hoping to take him under his wing, but refuses. After winning, he meets M. Bison, leader of Shadaloo and Sagat's employer, Dan remembers his fight with Chun-Li, blames him for it, then Bison orders Balrog to fight him. He wins, then fights Bison, after that, he finishes Bison off with his Hisshou Buraiken. He then turns the Psycho Drive Plant into his Saikyo Thailand dojo, where he and his friend Blanka, who he correctly refers to as Jimmy, learn Rolling Attack. Later, Charlie, who arrived late, comes with a flight squad and bombs the base, and Dan and Blanka escape. In an unknown time, he takes Sakura, the number 1 fan of his former master's student (Ryu) under his wing. However, while Sakura doesn't seem to mind Dan, he is unaware that she's using him to get to Ryu. Street Fighter IV Edit In Street Fighter IV, Dan is shown to be annoyed that he wasn't told of the second World Warrior Tournament, asking Blanka whether the crowds were bored to tears without a star like him to provide real action; in reality, Blanka tried to get in contact with him about the tournament, but couldn't, as Dan hadn't paid his phone bill and his phone was disconnected. Sakura also asks Dan whether he's heard anything about Ryu lately, since Dan has claimed that Ryu was an apprentice of his. To keep up this appearance, Dan says that Ken Masters is rumored to be entering the next World Tournament, which makes it likely that Ryu will also show up. Dan enters the new tournament to spread the popularity of his Saikyo style[2], barely getting enough points to qualify as a last-minute entry. At the end of the tournament, Dan is seen at the S.I.N. base, bumping into Blanka before an explosion threatens to engulf them both. They are saved by Ryu and Sakura, at which point Dan tells them to be more careful, as "even with [his] awesome powers" they may not survive the next wave. He then makes his exit to the amazement of all.[2] In an effort to capitalize on his association with great fighters, he broadcasts a commercial advertising the Saikyo-ryu dojo, telling people to drop in to enroll (his phone is still disconnected). However, when no-one turns up, S

as i was saying[edit]

akura points out that the ad didn't contain the dojo's address, whereupon Dan realizes his mistake and screams.[3]

Other AppearancesEdit Street Fighter X TekkenEdit

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In the debut trailer of the crossover game, Street Fighter X Tekken, Dan is badly beaten and "killed" by Kazuya Mishima from the Tekken universe,[4] during which he elaborates on events regarding the plot. However, he makes a non-playable apearance as the training mode instructor. He is also shown to be trapped in Pandora in Sakura and Blanka's ending. Pocket Fighter Edit

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In the unofficial events of Pocket Fighter, Dan's story begins with himself looking to expand his Saikyo-ryu school, and subsequently chooses Sakura as his student. Upon meeting Sakura, he offers to teach her his style, and she accepts after Dan defeats her in a fight. Sakura masters the entire Saikyo-ryuu style, after which writing a letter to Dan commenting on how she has purposely forgotten the entire Saikyo-ryuu style, calling his moves "retarded", thus humiliating Dan. In the Street Fighter AlphaStreet Fighter Alpha animated OVA, Dan is seen fighting Vega, as well as Birdie in another scene. Dan loses and is brutally defeated in both battles. Connections With Other Games/Media Edit Ran Hibiki, from the Rival Schools fighting game series, shares the same last name as Dan as well as some few similarities with him and it has been speculated that they are related to each other. A classmate of Ran is Chairperson, who learned to fight from a Saikyou-Ryu correspondence course. Sean from the Street Fighter III series, a student of Ken Masters who has a very limited mastery of the fighting style, has the win quotes, "Don't call me Dan!", "Rule #1: Never give up! Rule #2: Don't fight me! Rule #3: Don't be like Dan!" and "You fight like Dan. You ARE Dan!". In a Kamen Rider Decade episode, in which the characters are in Kamen Rider Hibiki's episode, Kadoya Tsukasa wears a pink kimono. This may be a reference to Dan, since the world's Rider shares his name with Dan's surname. GameplayEdit Due to his somewhat clumsy, slow and short moves, Dan is widely regarded as a joke character, not recommended to be used for any serious competition. He is also popular as a handicap to skilled players, as his weakness makes winning matches more difficult when against notably powerful characters such as Ryu, Ken and Charlie. As such, selecting Dan can in itself be seen as a taunt, since doing so implies high confidence that a player is superior in skill to his or her opponent. Strangely enough, the sheer comedy value made Dan a campy fan favorite of sorts. Although generally inferior to Ryu and Ken, in some areas he is slightly stronger. For instance his Dankukyaku can not be ducked under like Ryu and Ken's Tatsumaki Senpukyaku can, his taunt jump, allows him to jump higher than Ryu and Ken normally and it can interrupt in-air attacks. Each taunt also increases his super bar where Ryu and Ken's do not and his crouching and rolling taught and be good for avoiding and interrupting most attacks. He is difficult to use but he can be better than some of the other characters if used properly.

In Street Fighter IV, however, although his comical mannerisms remain intact, Dan appears to be more serious, and his moves have been notably upgraded to do equal damage to the those of the other mid-weight characters. His buffs and updates to his moves in the more recent games have actually allowed Dan to become a legitimate choice in the tournament setting, to the point that players say that Dan's greatest strength is the illusion that he's supposed to be bad.

Techniques Edit In the games he appears in, Dan is distinguished from Ryu and Ken by his ineffective special moves, such as a projectile with a comically short range (Gadouken, or Self-Taught Fist) and a triple-hitting flying kick that is easy to block (Dankukyaku, or Gale Kick); both are reminiscent of special attacks in Art of Fighting (if one had no Spirit Power in that game, special attacks become useless). Dan also possesses Koryuken, an anti-air uppercut (initially different, but eventually mimicking Ryu and Ken's Shoryuken) with very little horizontal range, during which he sometimes flashes and becomes completely invincible. He can also perform Premium Sign, where he autographs a portrait and flings it at the opponent. Dan has a move known as the Hisshou Buraiken, which is a standing parody of Ryo's flying Desperation move, the Ryuuko Ranbu. Dan also possesses a "Shoryu Reppa" type move called the Koryu Rekka, which was borrowed from the double uppercut at the end of Ryo's MAX Ryuuko Ranbu (he even imitates Ryo's "Kyokugen-ryuu Ougi!"/"Kyokugen-style secret!" yell that is used at the beginning of Ryuuko Ranbu, instead declaring "Saikyo-ryuu Ougi!"). Both moves have little to no range at all, and leave Dan wide open for attack if the moves are blocked.

Despite being the lowest tier amongst the main characters, Dan is still an above-average martial artist when compared to typical fighters. In the first volume of the manga Sakura Ganbaru!, Dan enters a street fighting competition and is shown doing rather well (though he admitted to using underhanded tactics, as he would "do anything to win"), only losing to Ken, who later went on to win the entire competition.

This seems to tie in to his appearance in Street Fighter IV, when he appears to be more serious, and his moves have been slightly upgraded in order to be balanced with other characters. He gains the new and quite powerful Haoh Gadouken Ultra Combo in Super Street Fighter IV, which is much similar to Ryo's super fireball. Dan's other Ultra in the Street Fighter IV series is Shisso Buraiken, which is basically his Hissho Buraiken, but he runs towards the opponent to connect. Similarly to the Haoh Gadouken, one can combo into the Shisso Buraiken with the Legendary Taunt.

TauntsEdit A running gag in all games that Dan appears in is his ability to taunt. In games where the player is limited to only one taunt, Dan is able to do an unlimited amount. Each Taunt also adds to his Super bar, generally (it varies by game) by a healthy amount. In Street Fighter IV, he is also able to perform a special Super Combo: the infamous "Super Taunt" (Chohatsu Dentetsu), which is simply a taunt dragged out for several seconds. It does absolutely no damage, and Dan is vulnerable throughout the entire escapade. It takes a whole Super Combo Gauge to perform. This attack is often seen as the ultimate insult, as it shows the player's confidence in victory enough to make him waste a chance at using a super move in favor of this, and performing it under any situation other than total victory is suicide. The interesting thing about this move is that Dan can perform his Ultra during the taunt, and, by starting this combo with the Gadouken, is the easiest way to hit with his Ultra.

Dan is one of only two characters in the Street Fighter series that has a super taunt, along with Sagat: Chouhatsu Densetsu (Legendary Taunt) and Chouhatsu Shinwa (Mythical Taunt).

Parody AttacksEdit In addition to his normal moveset, which parodies the moves used by "shoto"-style fighters, Dan has a move in some games known as the Otoko Michi (Way of the Man), which parodies Akuma's Shun Goku Satsu. The Otoko Michi is performed by doing the command for the Shun Goku Satsu in reverse. Depending on the game, the Otoko Michi can be as powerful as the Shun Goku Satsu, which can take off more than half of the opponent's lifebar, or it takes off a minimal amount of life from the opponent. In most versions, it leaves Dan with only 1% of his own life. Due to its slow speed and high costs, this move is considered highly unreliable and only used when absolute victory is certain. In Marvel vs. Capcom 2, it is the strongest single Hyper Combo in the game, even greater than the Shun Goku Satsu. In SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom, it not only does a considerable amount of damage when used, but he loses no life from performing it: this is due to the fact that it is his Exceed attack, all of which can only be done once per match and need a low amount of life remaining to become usable to begin with. Ironically, Dan parodies even more Kyokugen-style attacks in the SNK-produced games of the SNK vs. Capcom series. He gains the Gadou Sho Ko Ken (a Gadoken-ranged version of the Haoh Sho Ko Ken) in both SNK-produced games (as a Level 2 version of Shinkuu Gadoken in The Match of the Millennium, and a regular special move in SVC Chaos). In SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom, he also gains a parody version of Ryo's Tenchi Haoh Ken called Kyuukyoku Tenchi Gadou Zuki that is able to block any attack during the charge-up period, even normally unblockable moves, but does not do much damage and has an extremely long recovery time since Dan punches the opponent so hard that he breaks the bones in his hand, and needs some time to tend to it.

In Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, one can input a code just before the start of the match, in which Dan falls onto the ground, creating a comically huge explosion, instead of his normal entrance. He then gets up and the fight starts. This has absolutely no effect on gameplay.

Other Games Edit In the parody puzzle game Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, Dan's joke status continues. The gameplay in Puzzle Fighter revolves around setting up large blocks of "gems" to be broken, which will then drop countering gems on opponents in complex patterns in order to fill up their screens. Usually these attack gems fall in complex patterns designed to make it harder for opponents to successfully break them up. However, in Dan's case, every single gem dropped is red. This makes it comically easy for an opponent to break them all at once and create a massive counterattack that usually buries the Dan player completely. Perhaps even more so than in his traditional games, choosing Dan is considered the ultimate "sneer" to your opponent, since the amount of skill required to successfully play or beat someone else as Dan is so high that it is considered that no player of sound ability should ever lose to someone else playing as Dan. Stage ThemeEdit [1] [2] [3] [4] TriviaEdit Although Dan's face was originally designed to resemble Robert Garcia of Art of Fighting, his more recent portraits indicate that he may also be a spoof at Steven Seagal. Dan is one of the 19 characters in Street Fighter IV to not have second rivals in Super Street Fighter IV, despite having a ultra combo video to include his second rival (Sagat). The Dan is a Japanese mark of level, which is used in traditional fine arts and martial arts. In Street Fighter IV, Dan was unaware of the Second World Warrior Tournament, but in the non-canon UDON Comic Street Fighter II Turbo, Dan attempts to enter the finals of said tournament by stealing Guy's invitation. Guy lets him get away with it but Dan is unable to make good use of it as he is beaten by Sakura, after believing he was a contender by default. Using Dan's crouching and air taunt in SSFIV against an opponent allows him to attack, but not cause any harm to his opponent. Despite this, certain characters with counters will register them as "attacks". Additionally, using his air taunt as soon the jump animation starts increases his jumping height, making possible for him to dodge attacks such as a strong Shoryuken from Ryu, Ken, or Akuma. In the UDON comics Dan gets posessed by the Satsui no Hado for a moment. While dueling Sakura, he gets consumed by this power and kanji 'father' appears on his back as he tries to deliver an attack reminiscent of Shun Goku Satsu. In a typical Dan manner, while dashing towards Sakura, he trips on her school bag (losing the power in the process) allowing the girl to make short work of him. Later on in the UDON SFIV comic, Seth kidnaps Dan for the purposes of BLECE project which harnesses the power of Dark Hadou. According to a few of his in-game win quotes in SSFIV, Dan is unemployed, despite being able to pay for an infomercial that airs at 3 A.M, which should actually cost more than a phone bill, thus saying Dan does not set priority on his own account. According to Dan-specific win quotes in SFIV and SSFIV, most characters find Dan "entertaining", while others "can't stand him" or believe he is "all talk". Abel in particular even thanks him for the laughs. Nothing is ever stated about Dan's mother; she was possibly/most likely dead before the events pre-dating Street Fighter, although there's no source confirming that. It is possible that Sakura based her Focus Attack on Dan's EX Dankukyaku. Dan's Gadouken range has noticeably increased since his last canonical appearance in Street Fighter Alpha 3; it is much more reliable, but at the cost of him having a much slower release. The animation is also different: he extends his arm forward while launching the projectile. Dan's second costume color for his original costume is a reference to Ryo Sakazaki's default costume in the Art of Fighting and King of Fighters series. Capcom has a history of putting in subtle nods to Dan's origins as a parody of SNK's fighting games, and Dan has had the orange gi/blue shirt costume since Alpha. Dan's second alternate costume in Super Street Fighter IV might be a reference to what tribes in South America wear. Similarly, Blanka's second alternate costume is Dan's gi and outfit. These costumes are references to Dan and Blanka's friendship. In the patch for Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, Capcom has again improved Dan, albeit mildly on a basis of comparison to other characters. This is what Capcom stated: "In a lot of ways, we are aiming to make this the strongest version of Dan ever in a Street Fighter Series, so we have changed many things." Dan is seen in Sentinel's ending in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, where he is grabbed by a Sentinel for observation. In SVC Chaos Dan is the only person in the roster to not be transformed by the Red Arremer due to his lack of power. In Street Fighter IV when Dan wins against Sagat in arcade mode he says "Now I can finally visit my father's grave without being ashamed". This is a reference to Guile's qoute when he wins against M.Bison in arcade mode he says "Now I can finally visit Charlie's grave without being ashamed". Gallery Edit

All glory to Dan Habiki[edit]

Street Fighter Wiki FTW

"I hope you're ready for a beating!" —Dan, Street Fighter IV Dan Hibiki (火引 弾, Hibiki Dan) is a character from Capcom's Street Fighter series of fighting games. Dan is consistently portrayed as an arrogant, overconfident, awesome, yet utterly feeble character in many of the games he is featured in. He is widely considered to be the comic relief of the series because of his over-the-top poses, battle cries, and overall weak moveset. In essence, Dan is considered to be a joke character. In his most recent appearance in the home versions of Street Fighter IV, however, his moves have been slightly upgraded in order to be balanced with other characters.

Dan is usually given obnoxious or exaggerated attention; for example, in SFA2's intro. Added by HavocReaper48 Not long after Street Fighter II was released, rival video game company SNK released a fighting game, called Art of Fighting, starring Ryo Sakazaki and Robert Garcia. Ryo managed to bear a similarity in appearance, fighting style, and name to Ryu, and had the sa


I am a random interrupting headline!!! XD[edit]

Anyways...[edit]

me hair color as Ken. In humorous retaliation, Capcom included Dan as a secret character in Street Fighter Alpha. Connections to SNK CharactersEdit Dan's pink clothing is a spoof of Ryo's orange attire, while his head is a spoof of Robert's; he also taunts similarly to Yuri. Instead of using both hands to unleash his Gadouken (as Ryu, Ken, and even Sakura do for the Hadouken), he propels it with one hand, like Ryo, Robert and Yuri do for the Ko-oh-ken (that Robert calls Ryuugeki-ken). Dan can also taunt infinitely like the Art of Fighting games, unlike his fellow Street Fighter characters. In addition, he also had four unique taunts- one when he stands up, one crouching down, a short one when jumping, and a taunt exclusive to one of his special moves, Roll Taunt. Each taunt slightly fills up his Super Gauge. Dan's fighting style, the Saikyo-ryuu, is a parody of Kyokugen-ryuu, the fighting style used by Ryo and Robert. To further the parody, Saikyo-ryuu means "Strongest style" while Kyokugen-ryuu means "Extreme Style."

In Street Fighter Alpha 2, Dan is Ken's secret challenger (reached by finishing several fights in a row with Super Combos) and they exchange dialog, one line of which is Ken asking Dan if he knows the "art of fighting."

One of Dan's win quotes in Street Fighter Alpha 3 is "I hate the art of fighting, but I want to be the king of fighters!"; this is a direct reference to Art of Fighting and The King of Fighters series by SNK.


Dan's sister stopping him from killing Cyber Akuma Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In Dan's ending in Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, Dan's sister appears to prevent him finishing off Cyber-Akuma saying "Don't you know who he is? He's our...", parodying the ending of the original Art of Fighting where Ryo was about to kill Mr. Karate before being told he is their father by Yuri (Dan's sister even looks like her). In the SNK vs. Capcom series (more specifically in SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom), there is a running gag where Dan is often mistaken for Ryo or Robert, even by himself in a mirror match (Kasumi Todoh is one example: even after Dan tells her he is not Robert, she still does not believe him). In these games, Dan parodies even more of Ryo's attacks. He also mistook Mr. Karate for his father's ghost (though, in his ending in Neo Geo Pocket's SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium, he seems to acknowledge that Takuma and Go are different people). In Ryo's ending for Capcom vs. SNK 2, it is hinted that Dan came to the Sakazakis' Kyokugenryu Karate school to sign up.

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In Pocket Fighter, Dan can call on the ghost of his father, whose face resembles the same tengu mask as Mr. Karate. This is mirrored in Capcom's official artwork for Street Fighter Alpha; earlier works featured Dan's father as wearing a tengu mask while later ones show that the long nose was indeed a feature of Go Hibiki. All other instances of Go Hibiki's face are obscured, such as the image of young Sagat clutching Go's face shown at right. AppearanceEdit Dan has a similar outfit to Ryu and Ken, wearing a traditional Karate gi. Dan also wears a black undershirt like Ryo. His head and face closely resembles Robert from Art of Fighting, while his outfit is bright pink, reminiscent of Ryo's orange outfit in Art of Fighting. Coincidentally, orange is one of Dan's primary alternate colors. His fighting stance is similar to Ken and Ryu's (being how he was simply a palette-swap of those two); in later games, it is more "loose" and animated. As seen below, his appearance in Capcom VS. SNK 2 is more distinct in that he's lighter on his feet and his arms are positioned differently. In Street Fighter IV', he forgoes bouncing around in his stance in favor of hand and arm movements reminiscent of Tai Chi movements. Many of his mannerisms directly mirror those of Yuri Sakazaki.

Story Edit According to the Super Street Fighter IV blog, Dan was born on November 25. Dan's father, Gou, was a mixed martial artist and a rival of Sagat. Gou gouged out Sagat's right eye and Sagat beat him to death in retaliation. Because of this, Dan sought revenge on Sagat, 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 Saikyo-ryu or, "The Strongest Style," despite the complete weakness of his techniques. He set on a quest to find Sagat and take vengeance for his father's death. Sagat kills Dan's father Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 Street Fighter Alpha 2Edit In Street Fighter Alpha 2, Dan finds Sagat to avenge his father's death. During Dan's travels, he encounters Guy, who calls his moves cute. Guy then explains he is looking to challenge fighters. Dan accepts his challenge and fights Guy. He eventually encounters Sagat. When Dan taunts him on wanting to make the left eye match the right, Sagat comments that the man who took out his right eye paid with his life. Angered, Dan brands Sagat a murderer, knowing the man was his father. Sagat then comments that Dan should join his father, which then led to their fight. Dan's story is canonical; after their fight, Dan wins, although he doesn't know Sagat let him win, realizing how anger makes people do things they will regret. Satisfied that he finally avenged his father's death, Dan returns to Hong Kong and sets up his Saikyo-ryu Dojo. Street Fighter Alpha 3Edit

Dan opens his Dojo Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 "Dan finally defeated the man who killed his father... He made his own fighting style called Saikyo, "the strongest". But his ambitions will not rest until he achieves perfection..." —Dan's Street Fighter Alpha 3 Profile Dan travels the world, promoting Saikyo-ryu, until Chun-Li comes and questions him and asks if he is involved with Shadaloo. Dan fights her, wins and flees. While back in Thailand, he fights Sagat, hoping to take him under his wing, but refuses. After winning, he meets M. Bison, leader of Shadaloo and Sagat's employer, Dan remembers his fight with Chun-Li, blames him for it, then Bison orders Balrog to fight him. He wins, then fights Bison, after that, he finishes Bison off with his Hisshou Buraiken. He then turns the Psycho Drive Plant into his Saikyo Thailand dojo, where he and his friend Blanka, who he correctly refers to as Jimmy, learn Rolling Attack. Later, Charlie, who arrived late, comes with a flight squad and bombs the base, and Dan and Blanka escape. In an unknown time, he takes Sakura, the number 1 fan of his former master's student (Ryu) under his wing. However, while Sakura doesn't seem to mind Dan, he is unaware that she's using him to get to Ryu. Street Fighter IV Edit In Street Fighter IV, Dan is shown to be annoyed that he wasn't told of the second World Warrior Tournament, asking Blanka whether the crowds were bored to tears without a star like him to provide real action; in reality, Blanka tried to get in contact with him about the tournament, but couldn't, as Dan hadn't paid his phone bill and his phone was disconnected. Sakura also asks Dan whether he's heard anything about Ryu lately, since Dan has claimed that Ryu was an apprentice of his. To keep up this appearance, Dan says that Ken Masters is rumored to be entering the next World Tournament, which makes it likely that Ryu will also show up. Dan enters the new tournament to spread the popularity of his Saikyo style[2], barely getting enough points to qualify as a last-minute entry. At the end of the tournament, Dan is seen at the S.I.N. base, bumping into Blanka before an explosion threatens to engulf them both. They are saved by Ryu and Sakura, at which point Dan tells them to be more careful, as "even with [his] awesome powers" they may not survive the next wave. He then makes his exit to the amazement of all.[2] In an effort to capitalize on his association with great fighters, he broadcasts a commercial advertising the Saikyo-ryu dojo, telling people to drop in to enroll (his phone is still disconnected). However, when no-one turns up, S

touche.[edit]

as i was saying[edit]

akura points out that the ad didn't contain the dojo's address, whereupon Dan realizes his mistake and screams.[3]

Other AppearancesEdit Street Fighter X TekkenEdit

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In the debut trailer of the crossover game, Street Fighter X Tekken, Dan is badly beaten and "killed" by Kazuya Mishima from the Tekken universe,[4] during which he elaborates on events regarding the plot. However, he makes a non-playable apearance as the training mode instructor. He is also shown to be trapped in Pandora in Sakura and Blanka's ending. Pocket Fighter Edit

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In the unofficial events of Pocket Fighter, Dan's story begins with himself looking to expand his Saikyo-ryu school, and subsequently chooses Sakura as his student. Upon meeting Sakura, he offers to teach her his style, and she accepts after Dan defeats her in a fight. Sakura masters the entire Saikyo-ryuu style, after which writing a letter to Dan commenting on how she has purposely forgotten the entire Saikyo-ryuu style, calling his moves "retarded", thus humiliating Dan. In the Street Fighter AlphaStreet Fighter Alpha animated OVA, Dan is seen fighting Vega, as well as Birdie in another scene. Dan loses and is brutally defeated in both battles. Connections With Other Games/Media Edit Ran Hibiki, from the Rival Schools fighting game series, shares the same last name as Dan as well as some few similarities with him and it has been speculated that they are related to each other. A classmate of Ran is Chairperson, who learned to fight from a Saikyou-Ryu correspondence course. Sean from the Street Fighter III series, a student of Ken Masters who has a very limited mastery of the fighting style, has the win quotes, "Don't call me Dan!", "Rule #1: Never give up! Rule #2: Don't fight me! Rule #3: Don't be like Dan!" and "You fight like Dan. You ARE Dan!". In a Kamen Rider Decade episode, in which the characters are in Kamen Rider Hibiki's episode, Kadoya Tsukasa wears a pink kimono. This may be a reference to Dan, since the world's Rider shares his name with Dan's surname. GameplayEdit Due to his somewhat clumsy, slow and short moves, Dan is widely regarded as a joke character, not recommended to be used for any serious competition. He is also popular as a handicap to skilled players, as his weakness makes winning matches more difficult when against notably powerful characters such as Ryu, Ken and Charlie. As such, selecting Dan can in itself be seen as a taunt, since doing so implies high confidence that a player is superior in skill to his or her opponent. Strangely enough, the sheer comedy value made Dan a campy fan favorite of sorts. Although generally inferior to Ryu and Ken, in some areas he is slightly stronger. For instance his Dankukyaku can not be ducked under like Ryu and Ken's Tatsumaki Senpukyaku can, his taunt jump, allows him to jump higher than Ryu and Ken normally and it can interrupt in-air attacks. Each taunt also increases his super bar where Ryu and Ken's do not and his crouching and rolling taught and be good for avoiding and interrupting most attacks. He is difficult to use but he can be better than some of the other characters if used properly.

In Street Fighter IV, however, although his comical mannerisms remain intact, Dan appears to be more serious, and his moves have been notably upgraded to do equal damage to the those of the other mid-weight characters. His buffs and updates to his moves in the more recent games have actually allowed Dan to become a legitimate choice in the tournament setting, to the point that players say that Dan's greatest strength is the illusion that he's supposed to be bad.

Techniques Edit In the games he appears in, Dan is distinguished from Ryu and Ken by his ineffective special moves, such as a projectile with a comically short range (Gadouken, or Self-Taught Fist) and a triple-hitting flying kick that is easy to block (Dankukyaku, or Gale Kick); both are reminiscent of special attacks in Art of Fighting (if one had no Spirit Power in that game, special attacks become useless). Dan also possesses Koryuken, an anti-air uppercut (initially different, but eventually mimicking Ryu and Ken's Shoryuken) with very little horizontal range, during which he sometimes flashes and becomes completely invincible. He can also perform Premium Sign, where he autographs a portrait and flings it at the opponent. Dan has a move known as the Hisshou Buraiken, which is a standing parody of Ryo's flying Desperation move, the Ryuuko Ranbu. Dan also possesses a "Shoryu Reppa" type move called the Koryu Rekka, which was borrowed from the double uppercut at the end of Ryo's MAX Ryuuko Ranbu (he even imitates Ryo's "Kyokugen-ryuu Ougi!"/"Kyokugen-style secret!" yell that is used at the beginning of Ryuuko Ranbu, instead declaring "Saikyo-ryuu Ougi!"). Both moves have little to no range at all, and leave Dan wide open for attack if the moves are blocked.

Despite being the lowest tier amongst the main characters, Dan is still an above-average martial artist when compared to typical fighters. In the first volume of the manga Sakura Ganbaru!, Dan enters a street fighting competition and is shown doing rather well (though he admitted to using underhanded tactics, as he would "do anything to win"), only losing to Ken, who later went on to win the entire competition.

This seems to tie in to his appearance in Street Fighter IV, when he appears to be more serious, and his moves have been slightly upgraded in order to be balanced with other characters. He gains the new and quite powerful Haoh Gadouken Ultra Combo in Super Street Fighter IV, which is much similar to Ryo's super fireball. Dan's other Ultra in the Street Fighter IV series is Shisso Buraiken, which is basically his Hissho Buraiken, but he runs towards the opponent to connect. Similarly to the Haoh Gadouken, one can combo into the Shisso Buraiken with the Legendary Taunt.

TauntsEdit A running gag in all games that Dan appears in is his ability to taunt. In games where the player is limited to only one taunt, Dan is able to do an unlimited amount. Each Taunt also adds to his Super bar, generally (it varies by game) by a healthy amount. In Street Fighter IV, he is also able to perform a special Super Combo: the infamous "Super Taunt" (Chohatsu Dentetsu), which is simply a taunt dragged out for several seconds. It does absolutely no damage, and Dan is vulnerable throughout the entire escapade. It takes a whole Super Combo Gauge to perform. This attack is often seen as the ultimate insult, as it shows the player's confidence in victory enough to make him waste a chance at using a super move in favor of this, and performing it under any situation other than total victory is suicide. The interesting thing about this move is that Dan can perform his Ultra during the taunt, and, by starting this combo with the Gadouken, is the easiest way to hit with his Ultra.

Dan is one of only two characters in the Street Fighter series that has a super taunt, along with Sagat: Chouhatsu Densetsu (Legendary Taunt) and Chouhatsu Shinwa (Mythical Taunt).

Parody AttacksEdit In addition to his normal moveset, which parodies the moves used by "shoto"-style fighters, Dan has a move in some games known as the Otoko Michi (Way of the Man), which parodies Akuma's Shun Goku Satsu. The Otoko Michi is performed by doing the command for the Shun Goku Satsu in reverse. Depending on the game, the Otoko Michi can be as powerful as the Shun Goku Satsu, which can take off more than half of the opponent's lifebar, or it takes off a minimal amount of life from the opponent. In most versions, it leaves Dan with only 1% of his own life. Due to its slow speed and high costs, this move is considered highly unreliable and only used when absolute victory is certain. In Marvel vs. Capcom 2, it is the strongest single Hyper Combo in the game, even greater than the Shun Goku Satsu. In SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom, it not only does a considerable amount of damage when used, but he loses no life from performing it: this is due to the fact that it is his Exceed attack, all of which can only be done once per match and need a low amount of life remaining to become usable to begin with. Ironically, Dan parodies even more Kyokugen-style attacks in the SNK-produced games of the SNK vs. Capcom series. He gains the Gadou Sho Ko Ken (a Gadoken-ranged version of the Haoh Sho Ko Ken) in both SNK-produced games (as a Level 2 version of Shinkuu Gadoken in The Match of the Millennium, and a regular special move in SVC Chaos). In SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom, he also gains a parody version of Ryo's Tenchi Haoh Ken called Kyuukyoku Tenchi Gadou Zuki that is able to block any attack during the charge-up period, even normally unblockable moves, but does not do much damage and has an extremely long recovery time since Dan punches the opponent so hard that he breaks the bones in his hand, and needs some time to tend to it.

In Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, one can input a code just before the start of the match, in which Dan falls onto the ground, creating a comically huge explosion, instead of his normal entrance. He then gets up and the fight starts. This has absolutely no effect on gameplay.

Other Games Edit In the parody puzzle game Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, Dan's joke status continues. The gameplay in Puzzle Fighter revolves around setting up large blocks of "gems" to be broken, which will then drop countering gems on opponents in complex patterns in order to fill up their screens. Usually these attack gems fall in complex patterns designed to make it harder for opponents to successfully break them up. However, in Dan's case, every single gem dropped is red. This makes it comically easy for an opponent to break them all at once and create a massive counterattack that usually buries the Dan player completely. Perhaps even more so than in his traditional games, choosing Dan is considered the ultimate "sneer" to your opponent, since the amount of skill required to successfully play or beat someone else as Dan is so high that it is considered that no player of sound ability should ever lose to someone else playing as Dan. Stage ThemeEdit [1] [2] [3] [4] TriviaEdit Although Dan's face was originally designed to resemble Robert Garcia of Art of Fighting, his more recent portraits indicate that he may also be a spoof at Steven Seagal. Dan is one of the 19 characters in Street Fighter IV to not have second rivals in Super Street Fighter IV, despite having a ultra combo video to include his second rival (Sagat). The Dan is a Japanese mark of level, which is used in traditional fine arts and martial arts. In Street Fighter IV, Dan was unaware of the Second World Warrior Tournament, but in the non-canon UDON Comic Street Fighter II Turbo, Dan attempts to enter the finals of said tournament by stealing Guy's invitation. Guy lets him get away with it but Dan is unable to make good use of it as he is beaten by Sakura, after believing he was a contender by default. Using Dan's crouching and air taunt in SSFIV against an opponent allows him to attack, but not cause any harm to his opponent. Despite this, certain characters with counters will register them as "attacks". Additionally, using his air taunt as soon the jump animation starts increases his jumping height, making possible for him to dodge attacks such as a strong Shoryuken from Ryu, Ken, or Akuma. In the UDON comics Dan gets posessed by the Satsui no Hado for a moment. While dueling Sakura, he gets consumed by this power and kanji 'father' appears on his back as he tries to deliver an attack reminiscent of Shun Goku Satsu. In a typical Dan manner, while dashing towards Sakura, he trips on her school bag (losing the power in the process) allowing the girl to make short work of him. Later on in the UDON SFIV comic, Seth kidnaps Dan for the purposes of BLECE project which harnesses the power of Dark Hadou. According to a few of his in-game win quotes in SSFIV, Dan is unemployed, despite being able to pay for an infomercial that airs at 3 A.M, which should actually cost more than a phone bill, thus saying Dan does not set priority on his own account. According to Dan-specific win quotes in SFIV and SSFIV, most characters find Dan "entertaining", while others "can't stand him" or believe he is "all talk". Abel in particular even thanks him for the laughs. Nothing is ever stated about Dan's mother; she was possibly/most likely dead before the events pre-dating Street Fighter, although there's no source confirming that. It is possible that Sakura based her Focus Attack on Dan's EX Dankukyaku. Dan's Gadouken range has noticeably increased since his last canonical appearance in Street Fighter Alpha 3; it is much more reliable, but at the cost of him having a much slower release. The animation is also different: he extends his arm forward while launching the projectile. Dan's second costume color for his original costume is a reference to Ryo Sakazaki's default costume in the Art of Fighting and King of Fighters series. Capcom has a history of putting in subtle nods to Dan's origins as a parody of SNK's fighting games, and Dan has had the orange gi/blue shirt costume since Alpha. Dan's second alternate costume in Super Street Fighter IV might be a reference to what tribes in South America wear. Similarly, Blanka's second alternate costume is Dan's gi and outfit. These costumes are references to Dan and Blanka's friendship. In the patch for Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, Capcom has again improved Dan, albeit mildly on a basis of comparison to other characters. This is what Capcom stated: "In a lot of ways, we are aiming to make this the strongest version of Dan ever in a Street Fighter Series, so we have changed many things." Dan is seen in Sentinel's ending in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, where he is grabbed by a Sentinel for observation. In SVC Chaos Dan is the only person in the roster to not be transformed by the Red Arremer due to his lack of power. In Street Fighter IV when Dan wins against Sagat in arcade mode he says "Now I can finally visit my father's grave without being ashamed". This is a reference to Guile's qoute when he wins against M.Bison in arcade mode he says "Now I can finally visit Charlie's grave without being ashamed". Gallery Edit

All glory to Dan Habiki[edit]

Street Fighter Wiki FTW

"I hope you're ready for a beating!" —Dan, Street Fighter IV Dan Hibiki (火引 弾, Hibiki Dan) is a character from Capcom's Street Fighter series of fighting games. Dan is consistently portrayed as an arrogant, overconfident, awesome, yet utterly feeble character in many of the games he is featured in. He is widely considered to be the comic relief of the series because of his over-the-top poses, battle cries, and overall weak moveset. In essence, Dan is considered to be a joke character. In his most recent appearance in the home versions of Street Fighter IV, however, his moves have been slightly upgraded in order to be balanced with other characters.

Dan is usually given obnoxious or exaggerated attention; for example, in SFA2's intro. Added by HavocReaper48 Not long after Street Fighter II was released, rival video game company SNK released a fighting game, called Art of Fighting, starring Ryo Sakazaki and Robert Garcia. Ryo managed to bear a similarity in appearance, fighting style, and name to Ryu, and had the sa


I am a random interrupting headline!!! XD[edit]

Anyways...[edit]

me hair color as Ken. In humorous retaliation, Capcom included Dan as a secret character in Street Fighter Alpha. Connections to SNK CharactersEdit Dan's pink clothing is a spoof of Ryo's orange attire, while his head is a spoof of Robert's; he also taunts similarly to Yuri. Instead of using both hands to unleash his Gadouken (as Ryu, Ken, and even Sakura do for the Hadouken), he propels it with one hand, like Ryo, Robert and Yuri do for the Ko-oh-ken (that Robert calls Ryuugeki-ken). Dan can also taunt infinitely like the Art of Fighting games, unlike his fellow Street Fighter characters. In addition, he also had four unique taunts- one when he stands up, one crouching down, a short one when jumping, and a taunt exclusive to one of his special moves, Roll Taunt. Each taunt slightly fills up his Super Gauge. Dan's fighting style, the Saikyo-ryuu, is a parody of Kyokugen-ryuu, the fighting style used by Ryo and Robert. To further the parody, Saikyo-ryuu means "Strongest style" while Kyokugen-ryuu means "Extreme Style."

In Street Fighter Alpha 2, Dan is Ken's secret challenger (reached by finishing several fights in a row with Super Combos) and they exchange dialog, one line of which is Ken asking Dan if he knows the "art of fighting."

One of Dan's win quotes in Street Fighter Alpha 3 is "I hate the art of fighting, but I want to be the king of fighters!"; this is a direct reference to Art of Fighting and The King of Fighters series by SNK.


Dan's sister stopping him from killing Cyber Akuma Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In Dan's ending in Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, Dan's sister appears to prevent him finishing off Cyber-Akuma saying "Don't you know who he is? He's our...", parodying the ending of the original Art of Fighting where Ryo was about to kill Mr. Karate before being told he is their father by Yuri (Dan's sister even looks like her). In the SNK vs. Capcom series (more specifically in SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom), there is a running gag where Dan is often mistaken for Ryo or Robert, even by himself in a mirror match (Kasumi Todoh is one example: even after Dan tells her he is not Robert, she still does not believe him). In these games, Dan parodies even more of Ryo's attacks. He also mistook Mr. Karate for his father's ghost (though, in his ending in Neo Geo Pocket's SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium, he seems to acknowledge that Takuma and Go are different people). In Ryo's ending for Capcom vs. SNK 2, it is hinted that Dan came to the Sakazakis' Kyokugenryu Karate school to sign up.

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In Pocket Fighter, Dan can call on the ghost of his father, whose face resembles the same tengu mask as Mr. Karate. This is mirrored in Capcom's official artwork for Street Fighter Alpha; earlier works featured Dan's father as wearing a tengu mask while later ones show that the long nose was indeed a feature of Go Hibiki. All other instances of Go Hibiki's face are obscured, such as the image of young Sagat clutching Go's face shown at right. AppearanceEdit Dan has a similar outfit to Ryu and Ken, wearing a traditional Karate gi. Dan also wears a black undershirt like Ryo. His head and face closely resembles Robert from Art of Fighting, while his outfit is bright pink, reminiscent of Ryo's orange outfit in Art of Fighting. Coincidentally, orange is one of Dan's primary alternate colors. His fighting stance is similar to Ken and Ryu's (being how he was simply a palette-swap of those two); in later games, it is more "loose" and animated. As seen below, his appearance in Capcom VS. SNK 2 is more distinct in that he's lighter on his feet and his arms are positioned differently. In Street Fighter IV', he forgoes bouncing around in his stance in favor of hand and arm movements reminiscent of Tai Chi movements. Many of his mannerisms directly mirror those of Yuri Sakazaki.

Story Edit According to the Super Street Fighter IV blog, Dan was born on November 25. Dan's father, Gou, was a mixed martial artist and a rival of Sagat. Gou gouged out Sagat's right eye and Sagat beat him to death in retaliation. Because of this, Dan sought revenge on Sagat, 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 Saikyo-ryu or, "The Strongest Style," despite the complete weakness of his techniques. He set on a quest to find Sagat and take vengeance for his father's death. Sagat kills Dan's father Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 Street Fighter Alpha 2Edit In Street Fighter Alpha 2, Dan finds Sagat to avenge his father's death. During Dan's travels, he encounters Guy, who calls his moves cute. Guy then explains he is looking to challenge fighters. Dan accepts his challenge and fights Guy. He eventually encounters Sagat. When Dan taunts him on wanting to make the left eye match the right, Sagat comments that the man who took out his right eye paid with his life. Angered, Dan brands Sagat a murderer, knowing the man was his father. Sagat then comments that Dan should join his father, which then led to their fight. Dan's story is canonical; after their fight, Dan wins, although he doesn't know Sagat let him win, realizing how anger makes people do things they will regret. Satisfied that he finally avenged his father's death, Dan returns to Hong Kong and sets up his Saikyo-ryu Dojo. Street Fighter Alpha 3Edit

Dan opens his Dojo Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 "Dan finally defeated the man who killed his father... He made his own fighting style called Saikyo, "the strongest". But his ambitions will not rest until he achieves perfection..." —Dan's Street Fighter Alpha 3 Profile Dan travels the world, promoting Saikyo-ryu, until Chun-Li comes and questions him and asks if he is involved with Shadaloo. Dan fights her, wins and flees. While back in Thailand, he fights Sagat, hoping to take him under his wing, but refuses. After winning, he meets M. Bison, leader of Shadaloo and Sagat's employer, Dan remembers his fight with Chun-Li, blames him for it, then Bison orders Balrog to fight him. He wins, then fights Bison, after that, he finishes Bison off with his Hisshou Buraiken. He then turns the Psycho Drive Plant into his Saikyo Thailand dojo, where he and his friend Blanka, who he correctly refers to as Jimmy, learn Rolling Attack. Later, Charlie, who arrived late, comes with a flight squad and bombs the base, and Dan and Blanka escape. In an unknown time, he takes Sakura, the number 1 fan of his former master's student (Ryu) under his wing. However, while Sakura doesn't seem to mind Dan, he is unaware that she's using him to get to Ryu. Street Fighter IV Edit In Street Fighter IV, Dan is shown to be annoyed that he wasn't told of the second World Warrior Tournament, asking Blanka whether the crowds were bored to tears without a star like him to provide real action; in reality, Blanka tried to get in contact with him about the tournament, but couldn't, as Dan hadn't paid his phone bill and his phone was disconnected. Sakura also asks Dan whether he's heard anything about Ryu lately, since Dan has claimed that Ryu was an apprentice of his. To keep up this appearance, Dan says that Ken Masters is rumored to be entering the next World Tournament, which makes it likely that Ryu will also show up. Dan enters the new tournament to spread the popularity of his Saikyo style[2], barely getting enough points to qualify as a last-minute entry. At the end of the tournament, Dan is seen at the S.I.N. base, bumping into Blanka before an explosion threatens to engulf them both. They are saved by Ryu and Sakura, at which point Dan tells them to be more careful, as "even with [his] awesome powers" they may not survive the next wave. He then makes his exit to the amazement of all.[2] In an effort to capitalize on his association with great fighters, he broadcasts a commercial advertising the Saikyo-ryu dojo, telling people to drop in to enroll (his phone is still disconnected). However, when no-one turns up, S


I'm back mwahahahahaha[edit]

Stop that. It's making the article longer.[edit]

but dats da point[edit]

touche.[edit]

as i was saying[edit]

akura points out that the ad didn't contain the dojo's address, whereupon Dan realizes his mistake and screams.[3]

Other AppearancesEdit Street Fighter X TekkenEdit

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In the debut trailer of the crossover game, Street Fighter X Tekken, Dan is badly beaten and "killed" by Kazuya Mishima from the Tekken universe,[4] during which he elaborates on events regarding the plot. However, he makes a non-playable apearance as the training mode instructor. He is also shown to be trapped in Pandora in Sakura and Blanka's ending. Pocket Fighter Edit

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In the unofficial events of Pocket Fighter, Dan's story begins with himself looking to expand his Saikyo-ryu school, and subsequently chooses Sakura as his student. Upon meeting Sakura, he offers to teach her his style, and she accepts after Dan defeats her in a fight. Sakura masters the entire Saikyo-ryuu style, after which writing a letter to Dan commenting on how she has purposely forgotten the entire Saikyo-ryuu style, calling his moves "retarded", thus humiliating Dan. In the Street Fighter AlphaStreet Fighter Alpha animated OVA, Dan is seen fighting Vega, as well as Birdie in another scene. Dan loses and is brutally defeated in both battles. Connections With Other Games/Media Edit Ran Hibiki, from the Rival Schools fighting game series, shares the same last name as Dan as well as some few similarities with him and it has been speculated that they are related to each other. A classmate of Ran is Chairperson, who learned to fight from a Saikyou-Ryu correspondence course. Sean from the Street Fighter III series, a student of Ken Masters who has a very limited mastery of the fighting style, has the win quotes, "Don't call me Dan!", "Rule #1: Never give up! Rule #2: Don't fight me! Rule #3: Don't be like Dan!" and "You fight like Dan. You ARE Dan!". In a Kamen Rider Decade episode, in which the characters are in Kamen Rider Hibiki's episode, Kadoya Tsukasa wears a pink kimono. This may be a reference to Dan, since the world's Rider shares his name with Dan's surname. GameplayEdit Due to his somewhat clumsy, slow and short moves, Dan is widely regarded as a joke character, not recommended to be used for any serious competition. He is also popular as a handicap to skilled players, as his weakness makes winning matches more difficult when against notably powerful characters such as Ryu, Ken and Charlie. As such, selecting Dan can in itself be seen as a taunt, since doing so implies high confidence that a player is superior in skill to his or her opponent. Strangely enough, the sheer comedy value made Dan a campy fan favorite of sorts. Although generally inferior to Ryu and Ken, in some areas he is slightly stronger. For instance his Dankukyaku can not be ducked under like Ryu and Ken's Tatsumaki Senpukyaku can, his taunt jump, allows him to jump higher than Ryu and Ken normally and it can interrupt in-air attacks. Each taunt also increases his super bar where Ryu and Ken's do not and his crouching and rolling taught and be good for avoiding and interrupting most attacks. He is difficult to use but he can be better than some of the other characters if used properly.

In Street Fighter IV, however, although his comical mannerisms remain intact, Dan appears to be more serious, and his moves have been notably upgraded to do equal damage to the those of the other mid-weight characters. His buffs and updates to his moves in the more recent games have actually allowed Dan to become a legitimate choice in the tournament setting, to the point that players say that Dan's greatest strength is the illusion that he's supposed to be bad.

Techniques Edit In the games he appears in, Dan is distinguished from Ryu and Ken by his ineffective special moves, such as a projectile with a comically short range (Gadouken, or Self-Taught Fist) and a triple-hitting flying kick that is easy to block (Dankukyaku, or Gale Kick); both are reminiscent of special attacks in Art of Fighting (if one had no Spirit Power in that game, special attacks become useless). Dan also possesses Koryuken, an anti-air uppercut (initially different, but eventually mimicking Ryu and Ken's Shoryuken) with very little horizontal range, during which he sometimes flashes and becomes completely invincible. He can also perform Premium Sign, where he autographs a portrait and flings it at the opponent. Dan has a move known as the Hisshou Buraiken, which is a standing parody of Ryo's flying Desperation move, the Ryuuko Ranbu. Dan also possesses a "Shoryu Reppa" type move called the Koryu Rekka, which was borrowed from the double uppercut at the end of Ryo's MAX Ryuuko Ranbu (he even imitates Ryo's "Kyokugen-ryuu Ougi!"/"Kyokugen-style secret!" yell that is used at the beginning of Ryuuko Ranbu, instead declaring "Saikyo-ryuu Ougi!"). Both moves have little to no range at all, and leave Dan wide open for attack if the moves are blocked.

Despite being the lowest tier amongst the main characters, Dan is still an above-average martial artist when compared to typical fighters. In the first volume of the manga Sakura Ganbaru!, Dan enters a street fighting competition and is shown doing rather well (though he admitted to using underhanded tactics, as he would "do anything to win"), only losing to Ken, who later went on to win the entire competition.

This seems to tie in to his appearance in Street Fighter IV, when he appears to be more serious, and his moves have been slightly upgraded in order to be balanced with other characters. He gains the new and quite powerful Haoh Gadouken Ultra Combo in Super Street Fighter IV, which is much similar to Ryo's super fireball. Dan's other Ultra in the Street Fighter IV series is Shisso Buraiken, which is basically his Hissho Buraiken, but he runs towards the opponent to connect. Similarly to the Haoh Gadouken, one can combo into the Shisso Buraiken with the Legendary Taunt.

TauntsEdit A running gag in all games that Dan appears in is his ability to taunt. In games where the player is limited to only one taunt, Dan is able to do an unlimited amount. Each Taunt also adds to his Super bar, generally (it varies by game) by a healthy amount. In Street Fighter IV, he is also able to perform a special Super Combo: the infamous "Super Taunt" (Chohatsu Dentetsu), which is simply a taunt dragged out for several seconds. It does absolutely no damage, and Dan is vulnerable throughout the entire escapade. It takes a whole Super Combo Gauge to perform. This attack is often seen as the ultimate insult, as it shows the player's confidence in victory enough to make him waste a chance at using a super move in favor of this, and performing it under any situation other than total victory is suicide. The interesting thing about this move is that Dan can perform his Ultra during the taunt, and, by starting this combo with the Gadouken, is the easiest way to hit with his Ultra.

Dan is one of only two characters in the Street Fighter series that has a super taunt, along with Sagat: Chouhatsu Densetsu (Legendary Taunt) and Chouhatsu Shinwa (Mythical Taunt).

Parody AttacksEdit In addition to his normal moveset, which parodies the moves used by "shoto"-style fighters, Dan has a move in some games known as the Otoko Michi (Way of the Man), which parodies Akuma's Shun Goku Satsu. The Otoko Michi is performed by doing the command for the Shun Goku Satsu in reverse. Depending on the game, the Otoko Michi can be as powerful as the Shun Goku Satsu, which can take off more than half of the opponent's lifebar, or it takes off a minimal amount of life from the opponent. In most versions, it leaves Dan with only 1% of his own life. Due to its slow speed and high costs, this move is considered highly unreliable and only used when absolute victory is certain. In Marvel vs. Capcom 2, it is the strongest single Hyper Combo in the game, even greater than the Shun Goku Satsu. In SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom, it not only does a considerable amount of damage when used, but he loses no life from performing it: this is due to the fact that it is his Exceed attack, all of which can only be done once per match and need a low amount of life remaining to become usable to begin with. Ironically, Dan parodies even more Kyokugen-style attacks in the SNK-produced games of the SNK vs. Capcom series. He gains the Gadou Sho Ko Ken (a Gadoken-ranged version of the Haoh Sho Ko Ken) in both SNK-produced games (as a Level 2 version of Shinkuu Gadoken in The Match of the Millennium, and a regular special move in SVC Chaos). In SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom, he also gains a parody version of Ryo's Tenchi Haoh Ken called Kyuukyoku Tenchi Gadou Zuki that is able to block any attack during the charge-up period, even normally unblockable moves, but does not do much damage and has an extremely long recovery time since Dan punches the opponent so hard that he breaks the bones in his hand, and needs some time to tend to it.

In Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, one can input a code just before the start of the match, in which Dan falls onto the ground, creating a comically huge explosion, instead of his normal entrance. He then gets up and the fight starts. This has absolutely no effect on gameplay.

Other Games Edit In the parody puzzle game Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, Dan's joke status continues. The gameplay in Puzzle Fighter revolves around setting up large blocks of "gems" to be broken, which will then drop countering gems on opponents in complex patterns in order to fill up their screens. Usually these attack gems fall in complex patterns designed to make it harder for opponents to successfully break them up. However, in Dan's case, every single gem dropped is red. This makes it comically easy for an opponent to break them all at once and create a massive counterattack that usually buries the Dan player completely. Perhaps even more so than in his traditional games, choosing Dan is considered the ultimate "sneer" to your opponent, since the amount of skill required to successfully play or beat someone else as Dan is so high that it is considered that no player of sound ability should ever lose to someone else playing as Dan. Stage ThemeEdit [1] [2] [3] [4] TriviaEdit Although Dan's face was originally designed to resemble Robert Garcia of Art of Fighting, his more recent portraits indicate that he may also be a spoof at Steven Seagal. Dan is one of the 19 characters in Street Fighter IV to not have second rivals in Super Street Fighter IV, despite having a ultra combo video to include his second rival (Sagat). The Dan is a Japanese mark of level, which is used in traditional fine arts and martial arts. In Street Fighter IV, Dan was unaware of the Second World Warrior Tournament, but in the non-canon UDON Comic Street Fighter II Turbo, Dan attempts to enter the finals of said tournament by stealing Guy's invitation. Guy lets him get away with it but Dan is unable to make good use of it as he is beaten by Sakura, after believing he was a contender by default. Using Dan's crouching and air taunt in SSFIV against an opponent allows him to attack, but not cause any harm to his opponent. Despite this, certain characters with counters will register them as "attacks". Additionally, using his air taunt as soon the jump animation starts increases his jumping height, making possible for him to dodge attacks such as a strong Shoryuken from Ryu, Ken, or Akuma. In the UDON comics Dan gets posessed by the Satsui no Hado for a moment. While dueling Sakura, he gets consumed by this power and kanji 'father' appears on his back as he tries to deliver an attack reminiscent of Shun Goku Satsu. In a typical Dan manner, while dashing towards Sakura, he trips on her school bag (losing the power in the process) allowing the girl to make short work of him. Later on in the UDON SFIV comic, Seth kidnaps Dan for the purposes of BLECE project which harnesses the power of Dark Hadou. According to a few of his in-game win quotes in SSFIV, Dan is unemployed, despite being able to pay for an infomercial that airs at 3 A.M, which should actually cost more than a phone bill, thus saying Dan does not set priority on his own account. According to Dan-specific win quotes in SFIV and SSFIV, most characters find Dan "entertaining", while others "can't stand him" or believe he is "all talk". Abel in particular even thanks him for the laughs. Nothing is ever stated about Dan's mother; she was possibly/most likely dead before the events pre-dating Street Fighter, although there's no source confirming that. It is possible that Sakura based her Focus Attack on Dan's EX Dankukyaku. Dan's Gadouken range has noticeably increased since his last canonical appearance in Street Fighter Alpha 3; it is much more reliable, but at the cost of him having a much slower release. The animation is also different: he extends his arm forward while launching the projectile. Dan's second costume color for his original costume is a reference to Ryo Sakazaki's default costume in the Art of Fighting and King of Fighters series. Capcom has a history of putting in subtle nods to Dan's origins as a parody of SNK's fighting games, and Dan has had the orange gi/blue shirt costume since Alpha. Dan's second alternate costume in Super Street Fighter IV might be a reference to what tribes in South America wear. Similarly, Blanka's second alternate costume is Dan's gi and outfit. These costumes are references to Dan and Blanka's friendship. In the patch for Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, Capcom has again improved Dan, albeit mildly on a basis of comparison to other characters. This is what Capcom stated: "In a lot of ways, we are aiming to make this the strongest version of Dan ever in a Street Fighter Series, so we have changed many things." Dan is seen in Sentinel's ending in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, where he is grabbed by a Sentinel for observation. In SVC Chaos Dan is the only person in the roster to not be transformed by the Red Arremer due to his lack of power. In Street Fighter IV when Dan wins against Sagat in arcade mode he says "Now I can finally visit my father's grave without being ashamed". This is a reference to Guile's qoute when he wins against M.Bison in arcade mode he says "Now I can finally visit Charlie's grave without being ashamed". Gallery Edit

All glory to Dan Habiki[edit]

Street Fighter Wiki FTW

"I hope you're ready for a beating!" —Dan, Street Fighter IV Dan Hibiki (火引 弾, Hibiki Dan) is a character from Capcom's Street Fighter series of fighting games. Dan is consistently portrayed as an arrogant, overconfident, awesome, yet utterly feeble character in many of the games he is featured in. He is widely considered to be the comic relief of the series because of his over-the-top poses, battle cries, and overall weak moveset. In essence, Dan is considered to be a joke character. In his most recent appearance in the home versions of Street Fighter IV, however, his moves have been slightly upgraded in order to be balanced with other characters.

Dan is usually given obnoxious or exaggerated attention; for example, in SFA2's intro. Added by HavocReaper48 Not long after Street Fighter II was released, rival video game company SNK released a fighting game, called Art of Fighting, starring Ryo Sakazaki and Robert Garcia. Ryo managed to bear a similarity in appearance, fighting style, and name to Ryu, and had the sa

me hair color as Ken. In humorous retaliation, Capcom included Dan as a secret character in Street Fighter Alpha. Connections to SNK CharactersEdit Dan's pink clothing is a spoof of Ryo's orange attire, while his head is a spoof of Robert's; he also taunts similarly to Yuri. Instead of using both hands to unleash his Gadouken (as Ryu, Ken, and even Sakura do for the Hadouken), he propels it with one hand, like Ryo, Robert and Yuri do for the Ko-oh-ken (that Robert calls Ryuugeki-ken). Dan can also taunt infinitely like the Art of Fighting games, unlike his fellow Street Fighter characters. In addition, he also had four unique taunts- one when he stands up, one crouching down, a short one when jumping, and a taunt exclusive to one of his special moves, Roll Taunt. Each taunt slightly fills up his Super Gauge. Dan's fighting style, the Saikyo-ryuu, is a parody of Kyokugen-ryuu, the fighting style used by Ryo and Robert. To further the parody, Saikyo-ryuu means "Strongest style" while Kyokugen-ryuu means "Extreme Style."

In Street Fighter Alpha 2, Dan is Ken's secret challenger (reached by finishing several fights in a row with Super Combos) and they exchange dialog, one line of which is Ken asking Dan if he knows the "art of fighting."

One of Dan's win quotes in Street Fighter Alpha 3 is "I hate the art of fighting, but I want to be the king of fighters!"; this is a direct reference to Art of Fighting and The King of Fighters series by SNK.


Dan's sister stopping him from killing Cyber Akuma Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In Dan's ending in Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, Dan's sister appears to prevent him finishing off Cyber-Akuma saying "Don't you know who he is? He's our...", parodying the ending of the original Art of Fighting where Ryo was about to kill Mr. Karate before being told he is their father by Yuri (Dan's sister even looks like her). In the SNK vs. Capcom series (more specifically in SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom), there is a running gag where Dan is often mistaken for Ryo or Robert, even by himself in a mirror match (Kasumi Todoh is one example: even after Dan tells her he is not Robert, she still does not believe him). In these games, Dan parodies even more of Ryo's attacks. He also mistook Mr. Karate for his father's ghost (though, in his ending in Neo Geo Pocket's SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium, he seems to acknowledge that Takuma and Go are different people). In Ryo's ending for Capcom vs. SNK 2, it is hinted that Dan came to the Sakazakis' Kyokugenryu Karate school to sign up.

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In Pocket Fighter, Dan can call on the ghost of his father, whose face resembles the same tengu mask as Mr. Karate. This is mirrored in Capcom's official artwork for Street Fighter Alpha; earlier works featured Dan's father as wearing a tengu mask while later ones show that the long nose was indeed a feature of Go Hibiki. All other instances of Go Hibiki's face are obscured, such as the image of young Sagat clutching Go's face shown at right. AppearanceEdit Dan has a similar outfit to Ryu and Ken, wearing a traditional Karate gi. Dan also wears a black undershirt like Ryo. His head and face closely resembles Robert from Art of Fighting, while his outfit is bright pink, reminiscent of Ryo's orange outfit in Art of Fighting. Coincidentally, orange is one of Dan's primary alternate colors. His fighting stance is similar to Ken and Ryu's (being how he was simply a palette-swap of those two); in later games, it is more "loose" and animated. As seen below, his appearance in Capcom VS. SNK 2 is more distinct in that he's lighter on his feet and his arms are positioned differently. In Street Fighter IV', he forgoes bouncing around in his stance in favor of hand and arm movements reminiscent of Tai Chi movements. Many of his mannerisms directly mirror those of Yuri Sakazaki.

Story Edit According to the Super Street Fighter IV blog, Dan was born on November 25. Dan's father, Gou, was a mixed martial artist and a rival of Sagat. Gou gouged out Sagat's right eye and Sagat beat him to death in retaliation. Because of this, Dan sought revenge on Sagat, 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 Saikyo-ryu or, "The Strongest Style," despite the complete weakness of his techniques. He set on a quest to find Sagat and take vengeance for his father's death. Sagat kills Dan's father Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 Street Fighter Alpha 2Edit In Street Fighter Alpha 2, Dan finds Sagat to avenge his father's death. During Dan's travels, he encounters Guy, who calls his moves cute. Guy then explains he is looking to challenge fighters. Dan accepts his challenge and fights Guy. He eventually encounters Sagat. When Dan taunts him on wanting to make the left eye match the right, Sagat comments that the man who took out his right eye paid with his life. Angered, Dan brands Sagat a murderer, knowing the man was his father. Sagat then comments that Dan should join his father, which then led to their fight. Dan's story is canonical; after their fight, Dan wins, although he doesn't know Sagat let him win, realizing how anger makes people do things they will regret. Satisfied that he finally avenged his father's death, Dan returns to Hong Kong and sets up his Saikyo-ryu Dojo. Street Fighter Alpha 3Edit

Dan opens his Dojo Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 "Dan finally defeated the man who killed his father... He made his own fighting style called Saikyo, "the strongest". But his ambitions will not rest until he achieves perfection..." —Dan's Street Fighter Alpha 3 Profile Dan travels the world, promoting Saikyo-ryu, until Chun-Li comes and questions him and asks if he is involved with Shadaloo. Dan fights her, wins and flees. While back in Thailand, he fights Sagat, hoping to take him under his wing, but refuses. After winning, he meets M. Bison, leader of Shadaloo and Sagat's employer, Dan remembers his fight with Chun-Li, blames him for it, then Bison orders Balrog to fight him. He wins, then fights Bison, after that, he finishes Bison off with his Hisshou Buraiken. He then turns the Psycho Drive Plant into his Saikyo Thailand dojo, where he and his friend Blanka, who he correctly refers to as Jimmy, learn Rolling Attack. Later, Charlie, who arrived late, comes with a flight squad and bombs the base, and Dan and Blanka escape. In an unknown time, he takes Sakura, the number 1 fan of his former master's student (Ryu) under his wing. However, while Sakura doesn't seem to mind Dan, he is unaware that she's using him to get to Ryu. Street Fighter IV Edit In Street Fighter IV, Dan is shown to be annoyed that he wasn't told of the second World Warrior Tournament, asking Blanka whether the crowds were bored to tears without a star like him to provide real action; in reality, Blanka tried to get in contact with him about the tournament, but couldn't, as Dan hadn't paid his phone bill and his phone was disconnected. Sakura also asks Dan whether he's heard anything about Ryu lately, since Dan has claimed that Ryu was an apprentice of his. To keep up this appearance, Dan says that Ken Masters is rumored to be entering the next World Tournament, which makes it likely that Ryu will also show up. Dan enters the new tournament to spread the popularity of his Saikyo style[2], barely getting enough points to qualify as a last-minute entry. At the end of the tournament, Dan is seen at the S.I.N. base, bumping into Blanka before an explosion threatens to engulf them both. They are saved by Ryu and Sakura, at which point Dan tells them to be more careful, as "even with [his] awesome powers" they may not survive the next wave. He then makes his exit to the amazement of all.[2] In an effort to capitalize on his association with great fighters, he broadcasts a commercial advertising the Saikyo-ryu dojo, telling people to drop in to enroll (his phone is still disconnected). However, when no-one turns up, S

Stop that. It's making the article longer.[edit]

but dats da point[edit]

touche.[edit]

as i was saying[edit]

akura points out that the ad didn't contain the dojo's address, whereupon Dan realizes his mistake and screams.[3]

Other AppearancesEdit Street Fighter X TekkenEdit

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In the debut trailer of the crossover game, Street Fighter X Tekken, Dan is badly beaten and "killed" by Kazuya Mishima from the Tekken universe,[4] during which he elaborates on events regarding the plot. However, he makes a non-playable apearance as the training mode instructor. He is also shown to be trapped in Pandora in Sakura and Blanka's ending. Pocket Fighter Edit

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In the unofficial events of Pocket Fighter, Dan's story begins with himself looking to expand his Saikyo-ryu school, and subsequently chooses Sakura as his student. Upon meeting Sakura, he offers to teach her his style, and she accepts after Dan defeats her in a fight. Sakura masters the entire Saikyo-ryuu style, after which writing a letter to Dan commenting on how she has purposely forgotten the entire Saikyo-ryuu style, calling his moves "retarded", thus humiliating Dan. In the Street Fighter AlphaStreet Fighter Alpha animated OVA, Dan is seen fighting Vega, as well as Birdie in another scene. Dan loses and is brutally defeated in both battles. Connections With Other Games/Media Edit Ran Hibiki, from the Rival Schools fighting game series, shares the same last name as Dan as well as some few similarities with him and it has been speculated that they are related to each other. A classmate of Ran is Chairperson, who learned to fight from a Saikyou-Ryu correspondence course. Sean from the Street Fighter III series, a student of Ken Masters who has a very limited mastery of the fighting style, has the win quotes, "Don't call me Dan!", "Rule #1: Never give up! Rule #2: Don't fight me! Rule #3: Don't be like Dan!" and "You fight like Dan. You ARE Dan!". In a Kamen Rider Decade episode, in which the characters are in Kamen Rider Hibiki's episode, Kadoya Tsukasa wears a pink kimono. This may be a reference to Dan, since the world's Rider shares his name with Dan's surname. GameplayEdit Due to his somewhat clumsy, slow and short moves, Dan is widely regarded as a joke character, not recommended to be used for any serious competition. He is also popular as a handicap to skilled players, as his weakness makes winning matches more difficult when against notably powerful characters such as Ryu, Ken and Charlie. As such, selecting Dan can in itself be seen as a taunt, since doing so implies high confidence that a player is superior in skill to his or her opponent. Strangely enough, the sheer comedy value made Dan a campy fan favorite of sorts. Although generally inferior to Ryu and Ken, in some areas he is slightly stronger. For instance his Dankukyaku can not be ducked under like Ryu and Ken's Tatsumaki Senpukyaku can, his taunt jump, allows him to jump higher than Ryu and Ken normally and it can interrupt in-air attacks. Each taunt also increases his super bar where Ryu and Ken's do not and his crouching and rolling taught and be good for avoiding and interrupting most attacks. He is difficult to use but he can be better than some of the other characters if used properly.

In Street Fighter IV, however, although his comical mannerisms remain intact, Dan appears to be more serious, and his moves have been notably upgraded to do equal damage to the those of the other mid-weight characters. His buffs and updates to his moves in the more recent games have actually allowed Dan to become a legitimate choice in the tournament setting, to the point that players say that Dan's greatest strength is the illusion that he's supposed to be bad.

Techniques Edit In the games he appears in, Dan is distinguished from Ryu and Ken by his ineffective special moves, such as a projectile with a comically short range (Gadouken, or Self-Taught Fist) and a triple-hitting flying kick that is easy to block (Dankukyaku, or Gale Kick); both are reminiscent of special attacks in Art of Fighting (if one had no Spirit Power in that game, special attacks become useless). Dan also possesses Koryuken, an anti-air uppercut (initially different, but eventually mimicking Ryu and Ken's Shoryuken) with very little horizontal range, during which he sometimes flashes and becomes completely invincible. He can also perform Premium Sign, where he autographs a portrait and flings it at the opponent. Dan has a move known as the Hisshou Buraiken, which is a standing parody of Ryo's flying Desperation move, the Ryuuko Ranbu. Dan also possesses a "Shoryu Reppa" type move called the Koryu Rekka, which was borrowed from the double uppercut at the end of Ryo's MAX Ryuuko Ranbu (he even imitates Ryo's "Kyokugen-ryuu Ougi!"/"Kyokugen-style secret!" yell that is used at the beginning of Ryuuko Ranbu, instead declaring "Saikyo-ryuu Ougi!"). Both moves have little to no range at all, and leave Dan wide open for attack if the moves are blocked.

Despite being the lowest tier amongst the main characters, Dan is still an above-average martial artist when compared to typical fighters. In the first volume of the manga Sakura Ganbaru!, Dan enters a street fighting competition and is shown doing rather well (though he admitted to using underhanded tactics, as he would "do anything to win"), only losing to Ken, who later went on to win the entire competition.

This seems to tie in to his appearance in Street Fighter IV, when he appears to be more serious, and his moves have been slightly upgraded in order to be balanced with other characters. He gains the new and quite powerful Haoh Gadouken Ultra Combo in Super Street Fighter IV, which is much similar to Ryo's super fireball. Dan's other Ultra in the Street Fighter IV series is Shisso Buraiken, which is basically his Hissho Buraiken, but he runs towards the opponent to connect. Similarly to the Haoh Gadouken, one can combo into the Shisso Buraiken with the Legendary Taunt.

TauntsEdit A running gag in all games that Dan appears in is his ability to taunt. In games where the player is limited to only one taunt, Dan is able to do an unlimited amount. Each Taunt also adds to his Super bar, generally (it varies by game) by a healthy amount. In Street Fighter IV, he is also able to perform a special Super Combo: the infamous "Super Taunt" (Chohatsu Dentetsu), which is simply a taunt dragged out for several seconds. It does absolutely no damage, and Dan is vulnerable throughout the entire escapade. It takes a whole Super Combo Gauge to perform. This attack is often seen as the ultimate insult, as it shows the player's confidence in victory enough to make him waste a chance at using a super move in favor of this, and performing it under any situation other than total victory is suicide. The interesting thing about this move is that Dan can perform his Ultra during the taunt, and, by starting this combo with the Gadouken, is the easiest way to hit with his Ultra.

Dan is one of only two characters in the Street Fighter series that has a super taunt, along with Sagat: Chouhatsu Densetsu (Legendary Taunt) and Chouhatsu Shinwa (Mythical Taunt).

Parody AttacksEdit In addition to his normal moveset, which parodies the moves used by "shoto"-style fighters, Dan has a move in some games known as the Otoko Michi (Way of the Man), which parodies Akuma's Shun Goku Satsu. The Otoko Michi is performed by doing the command for the Shun Goku Satsu in reverse. Depending on the game, the Otoko Michi can be as powerful as the Shun Goku Satsu, which can take off more than half of the opponent's lifebar, or it takes off a minimal amount of life from the opponent. In most versions, it leaves Dan with only 1% of his own life. Due to its slow speed and high costs, this move is considered highly unreliable and only used when absolute victory is certain. In Marvel vs. Capcom 2, it is the strongest single Hyper Combo in the game, even greater than the Shun Goku Satsu. In SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom, it not only does a considerable amount of damage when used, but he loses no life from performing it: this is due to the fact that it is his Exceed attack, all of which can only be done once per match and need a low amount of life remaining to become usable to begin with. Ironically, Dan parodies even more Kyokugen-style attacks in the SNK-produced games of the SNK vs. Capcom series. He gains the Gadou Sho Ko Ken (a Gadoken-ranged version of the Haoh Sho Ko Ken) in both SNK-produced games (as a Level 2 version of Shinkuu Gadoken in The Match of the Millennium, and a regular special move in SVC Chaos). In SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom, he also gains a parody version of Ryo's Tenchi Haoh Ken called Kyuukyoku Tenchi Gadou Zuki that is able to block any attack during the charge-up period, even normally unblockable moves, but does not do much damage and has an extremely long recovery time since Dan punches the opponent so hard that he breaks the bones in his hand, and needs some time to tend to it.

In Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, one can input a code just before the start of the match, in which Dan falls onto the ground, creating a comically huge explosion, instead of his normal entrance. He then gets up and the fight starts. This has absolutely no effect on gameplay.

Other Games Edit In the parody puzzle game Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, Dan's joke status continues. The gameplay in Puzzle Fighter revolves around setting up large blocks of "gems" to be broken, which will then drop countering gems on opponents in complex patterns in order to fill up their screens. Usually these attack gems fall in complex patterns designed to make it harder for opponents to successfully break them up. However, in Dan's case, every single gem dropped is red. This makes it comically easy for an opponent to break them all at once and create a massive counterattack that usually buries the Dan player completely. Perhaps even more so than in his traditional games, choosing Dan is considered the ultimate "sneer" to your opponent, since the amount of skill required to successfully play or beat someone else as Dan is so high that it is considered that no player of sound ability should ever lose to someone else playing as Dan. Stage ThemeEdit [1] [2] [3] [4] TriviaEdit Although Dan's face was originally designed to resemble Robert Garcia of Art of Fighting, his more recent portraits indicate that he may also be a spoof at Steven Seagal. Dan is one of the 19 characters in Street Fighter IV to not have second rivals in Super Street Fighter IV, despite having a ultra combo video to include his second rival (Sagat). The Dan is a Japanese mark of level, which is used in traditional fine arts and martial arts. In Street Fighter IV, Dan was unaware of the Second World Warrior Tournament, but in the non-canon UDON Comic Street Fighter II Turbo, Dan attempts to enter the finals of said tournament by stealing Guy's invitation. Guy lets him get away with it but Dan is unable to make good use of it as he is beaten by Sakura, after believing he was a contender by default. Using Dan's crouching and air taunt in SSFIV against an opponent allows him to attack, but not cause any harm to his opponent. Despite this, certain characters with counters will register them as "attacks". Additionally, using his air taunt as soon the jump animation starts increases his jumping height, making possible for him to dodge attacks such as a strong Shoryuken from Ryu, Ken, or Akuma. In the UDON comics Dan gets posessed by the Satsui no Hado for a moment. While dueling Sakura, he gets consumed by this power and kanji 'father' appears on his back as he tries to deliver an attack reminiscent of Shun Goku Satsu. In a typical Dan manner, while dashing towards Sakura, he trips on her school bag (losing the power in the process) allowing the girl to make short work of him. Later on in the UDON SFIV comic, Seth kidnaps Dan for the purposes of BLECE project which harnesses the power of Dark Hadou. According to a few of his in-game win quotes in SSFIV, Dan is unemployed, despite being able to pay for an infomercial that airs at 3 A.M, which should actually cost more than a phone bill, thus saying Dan does not set priority on his own account. According to Dan-specific win quotes in SFIV and SSFIV, most characters find Dan "entertaining", while others "can't stand him" or believe he is "all talk". Abel in particular even thanks him for the laughs. Nothing is ever stated about Dan's mother; she was possibly/most likely dead before the events pre-dating Street Fighter, although there's no source confirming that. It is possible that Sakura based her Focus Attack on Dan's EX Dankukyaku. Dan's Gadouken range has noticeably increased since his last canonical appearance in Street Fighter Alpha 3; it is much more reliable, but at the cost of him having a much slower release. The animation is also different: he extends his arm forward while launching the projectile. Dan's second costume color for his original costume is a reference to Ryo Sakazaki's default costume in the Art of Fighting and King of Fighters series. Capcom has a history of putting in subtle nods to Dan's origins as a parody of SNK's fighting games, and Dan has had the orange gi/blue shirt costume since Alpha. Dan's second alternate costume in Super Street Fighter IV might be a reference to what tribes in South America wear. Similarly, Blanka's second alternate costume is Dan's gi and outfit. These costumes are references to Dan and Blanka's friendship. In the patch for Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, Capcom has again improved Dan, albeit mildly on a basis of comparison to other characters. This is what Capcom stated: "In a lot of ways, we are aiming to make this the strongest version of Dan ever in a Street Fighter Series, so we have changed many things." Dan is seen in Sentinel's ending in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, where he is grabbed by a Sentinel for observation. In SVC Chaos Dan is the only person in the roster to not be transformed by the Red Arremer due to his lack of power. In Street Fighter IV when Dan wins against Sagat in arcade mode he says "Now I can finally visit my father's grave without being ashamed". This is a reference to Guile's qoute when he wins against M.Bison in arcade mode he says "Now I can finally visit Charlie's grave without being ashamed". Gallery Edit

All glory to Dan Habiki[edit]

Street Fighter Wiki FTW

"I hope you're ready for a beating!" —Dan, Street Fighter IV Dan Hibiki (火引 弾, Hibiki Dan) is a character from Capcom's Street Fighter series of fighting games. Dan is consistently portrayed as an arrogant, overconfident, awesome, yet utterly feeble character in many of the games he is featured in. He is widely considered to be the comic relief of the series because of his over-the-top poses, battle cries, and overall weak moveset. In essence, Dan is considered to be a joke character. In his most recent appearance in the home versions of Street Fighter IV, however, his moves have been slightly upgraded in order to be balanced with other characters.

me hair color as Ken. In humorous retaliation, Capcom included Dan as a secret character in Street Fighter Alpha. Connections to SNK CharactersEdit Dan's pink clothing is a spoof of Ryo's orange attire, while his head is a spoof of Robert's; he also taunts similarly to Yuri. Instead of using both hands to unleash his Gadouken (as Ryu, Ken, and even Sakura do for the Hadouken), he propels it with one hand, like Ryo, Robert and Yuri do for the Ko-oh-ken (that Robert calls Ryuugeki-ken). Dan can also taunt infinitely like the Art of Fighting games, unlike his fellow Street Fighter characters. In addition, he also had four unique taunts- one when he stands up, one crouching down, a short one when jumping, and a taunt exclusive to one of his special moves, Roll Taunt. Each taunt slightly fills up his Super Gauge. Dan's fighting style, the Saikyo-ryuu, is a parody of Kyokugen-ryuu, the fighting style used by Ryo and Robert. To further the parody, Saikyo-ryuu means "Strongest style" while Kyokugen-ryuu means "Extreme Style."

In Street Fighter Alpha 2, Dan is Ken's secret challenger (reached by finishing several fights in a row with Super Combos) and they exchange dialog, one line of which is Ken asking Dan if he knows the "art of fighting."

One of Dan's win quotes in Street Fighter Alpha 3 is "I hate the art of fighting, but I want to be the king of fighters!"; this is a direct reference to Art of Fighting and The King of Fighters series by SNK.


Dan's sister stopping him from killing Cyber Akuma Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In Dan's ending in Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, Dan's sister appears to prevent him finishing off Cyber-Akuma saying "Don't you know who he is? He's our...", parodying the ending of the original Art of Fighting where Ryo was about to kill Mr. Karate before being told he is their father by Yuri (Dan's sister even looks like her). In the SNK vs. Capcom series (more specifically in SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom), there is a running gag where Dan is often mistaken for Ryo or Robert, even by himself in a mirror match (Kasumi Todoh is one example: even after Dan tells her he is not Robert, she still does not believe him). In these games, Dan parodies even more of Ryo's attacks. He also mistook Mr. Karate for his father's ghost (though, in his ending in Neo Geo Pocket's SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium, he seems to acknowledge that Takuma and Go are different people). In Ryo's ending for Capcom vs. SNK 2, it is hinted that Dan came to the Sakazakis' Kyokugenryu Karate school to sign up.

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In Pocket Fighter, Dan can call on the ghost of his father, whose face resembles the same tengu mask as Mr. Karate. This is mirrored in Capcom's official artwork for Street Fighter Alpha; earlier works featured Dan's father as wearing a tengu mask while later ones show that the long nose was indeed a feature of Go Hibiki. All other instances of Go Hibiki's face are obscured, such as the image of young Sagat clutching Go's face shown at right. AppearanceEdit Dan has a similar outfit to Ryu and Ken, wearing a traditional Karate gi. Dan also wears a black undershirt like Ryo. His head and face closely resembles Robert from Art of Fighting, while his outfit is bright pink, reminiscent of Ryo's orange outfit in Art of Fighting. Coincidentally, orange is one of Dan's primary alternate colors. His fighting stance is similar to Ken and Ryu's (being how he was simply a palette-swap of those two); in later games, it is more "loose" and animated. As seen below, his appearance in Capcom VS. SNK 2 is more distinct in that he's lighter on his feet and his arms are positioned differently. In Street Fighter IV', he forgoes bouncing around in his stance in favor of hand and arm movements reminiscent of Tai Chi movements. Many of his mannerisms directly mirror those of Yuri Sakazaki.

Story Edit According to the Super Street Fighter IV blog, Dan was born on November 25. Dan's father, Gou, was a mixed martial artist and a rival of Sagat. Gou gouged out Sagat's right eye and Sagat beat him to death in retaliation. Because of this, Dan sought revenge on Sagat, 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 Saikyo-ryu or, "The Strongest Style," despite the complete weakness of his techniques. He set on a quest to find Sagat and take vengeance for his father's death. Sagat kills Dan's father Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 Street Fighter Alpha 2Edit In Street Fighter Alpha 2, Dan finds Sagat to avenge his father's death. During Dan's travels, he encounters Guy, who calls his moves cute. Guy then explains he is looking to challenge fighters. Dan accepts his challenge and fights Guy. He eventually encounters Sagat. When Dan taunts him on wanting to make the left eye match the right, Sagat comments that the man who took out his right eye paid with his life. Angered, Dan brands Sagat a murderer, knowing the man was his father. Sagat then comments that Dan should join his father, which then led to their fight. Dan's story is canonical; after their fight, Dan wins, although he doesn't know Sagat let him win, realizing how anger makes people do things they will regret. Satisfied that he finally avenged his father's death, Dan returns to Hong Kong and sets up his Saikyo-ryu Dojo. Street Fighter Alpha 3Edit

Dan opens his Dojo Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 "Dan finally defeated the man who killed his father... He made his own fighting style called Saikyo, "the strongest". But his ambitions will not rest until he achieves perfection..." —Dan's Street Fighter Alpha 3 Profile Dan travels the world, promoting Saikyo-ryu, until Chun-Li comes and questions him and asks if he is involved with Shadaloo. Dan fights her, wins and flees. While back in Thailand, he fights Sagat, hoping to take him under his wing, but refuses. After winning, he meets M. Bison, leader of Shadaloo and Sagat's employer, Dan remembers his fight with Chun-Li, blames him for it, then Bison orders Balrog to fight him. He wins, then fights Bison, after that, he finishes Bison off with his Hisshou Buraiken. He then turns the Psycho Drive Plant into his Saikyo Thailand dojo, where he and his friend Blanka, who he correctly refers to as Jimmy, learn Rolling Attack. Later, Charlie, who arrived late, comes with a flight squad and bombs the base, and Dan and Blanka escape. In an unknown time, he takes Sakura, the number 1 fan of his former master's student (Ryu) under his wing. However, while Sakura doesn't seem to mind Dan, he is unaware that she's using him to get to Ryu. Street Fighter IV Edit In Street Fighter IV, Dan is shown to be annoyed that he wasn't told of the second World Warrior Tournament, asking Blanka whether the crowds were bored to tears without a star like him to provide real action; in reality, Blanka tried to get in contact with him about the tournament, but couldn't, as Dan hadn't paid his phone bill and his phone was disconnected. Sakura also asks Dan whether he's heard anything about Ryu lately, since Dan has claimed that Ryu was an apprentice of his. To keep up this appearance, Dan says that Ken Masters is rumored to be entering the next World Tournament, which makes it likely that Ryu will also show up. Dan enters the new tournament to spread the popularity of his Saikyo style[2], barely getting enough points to qualify as a last-minute entry. At the end of the tournament, Dan is seen at the S.I.N. base, bumping into Blanka before an explosion threatens to engulf them both. They are saved by Ryu and Sakura, at which point Dan tells them to be more careful, as "even with [his] awesome powers" they may not survive the next wave. He then makes his exit to the amazement of all.[2] In an effort to capitalize on his association with great fighters, he broadcasts a commercial advertising the Saikyo-ryu dojo, telling people to drop in to enroll (his phone is still disconnected). However, when no-one turns up, S


I'm back mwahahahahaha[edit]

Stop that. It's making the article longer.[edit]

but dats da point[edit]

touche.[edit]

as i was saying[edit]

akura points out that the ad didn't contain the dojo's address, whereupon Dan realizes his mistake and screams.[3]

Other AppearancesEdit Street Fighter X TekkenEdit

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In the debut trailer of the crossover game, Street Fighter X Tekken, Dan is badly beaten and "killed" by Kazuya Mishima from the Tekken universe,[4] during which he elaborates on events regarding the plot. However, he makes a non-playable apearance as the training mode instructor. He is also shown to be trapped in Pandora in Sakura and Blanka's ending. Pocket Fighter Edit

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In the unofficial events of Pocket Fighter, Dan's story begins with himself looking to expand his Saikyo-ryu school, and subsequently chooses Sakura as his student. Upon meeting Sakura, he offers to teach her his style, and she accepts after Dan defeats her in a fight. Sakura masters the entire Saikyo-ryuu style, after which writing a letter to Dan commenting on how she has purposely forgotten the entire Saikyo-ryuu style, calling his moves "retarded", thus humiliating Dan. In the Street Fighter AlphaStreet Fighter Alpha animated OVA, Dan is seen fighting Vega, as well as Birdie in another scene. Dan loses and is brutally defeated in both battles. Connections With Other Games/Media Edit Ran Hibiki, from the Rival Schools fighting game series, shares the same last name as Dan as well as some few similarities with him and it has been speculated that they are related to each other. A classmate of Ran is Chairperson, who learned to fight from a Saikyou-Ryu correspondence course. Sean from the Street Fighter III series, a student of Ken Masters who has a very limited mastery of the fighting style, has the win quotes, "Don't call me Dan!", "Rule #1: Never give up! Rule #2: Don't fight me! Rule #3: Don't be like Dan!" and "You fight like Dan. You ARE Dan!". In a Kamen Rider Decade episode, in which the characters are in Kamen Rider Hibiki's episode, Kadoya Tsukasa wears a pink kimono. This may be a reference to Dan, since the world's Rider shares his name with Dan's surname. GameplayEdit Due to his somewhat clumsy, slow and short moves, Dan is widely regarded as a joke character, not recommended to be used for any serious competition. He is also popular as a handicap to skilled players, as his weakness makes winning matches more difficult when against notably powerful characters such as Ryu, Ken and Charlie. As such, selecting Dan can in itself be seen as a taunt, since doing so implies high confidence that a player is superior in skill to his or her opponent. Strangely enough, the sheer comedy value made Dan a campy fan favorite of sorts. Although generally inferior to Ryu and Ken, in some areas he is slightly stronger. For instance his Dankukyaku can not be ducked under like Ryu and Ken's Tatsumaki Senpukyaku can, his taunt jump, allows him to jump higher than Ryu and Ken normally and it can interrupt in-air attacks. Each taunt also increases his super bar where Ryu and Ken's do not and his crouching and rolling taught and be good for avoiding and interrupting most attacks. He is difficult to use but he can be better than some of the other characters if used properly.

In Street Fighter IV, however, although his comical mannerisms remain intact, Dan appears to be more serious, and his moves have been notably upgraded to do equal damage to the those of the other mid-weight characters. His buffs and updates to his moves in the more recent games have actually allowed Dan to become a legitimate choice in the tournament setting, to the point that players say that Dan's greatest strength is the illusion that he's supposed to be bad.

Techniques Edit In the games he appears in, Dan is distinguished from Ryu and Ken by his ineffective special moves, such as a projectile with a comically short range (Gadouken, or Self-Taught Fist) and a triple-hitting flying kick that is easy to block (Dankukyaku, or Gale Kick); both are reminiscent of special attacks in Art of Fighting (if one had no Spirit Power in that game, special attacks become useless). Dan also possesses Koryuken, an anti-air uppercut (initially different, but eventually mimicking Ryu and Ken's Shoryuken) with very little horizontal range, during which he sometimes flashes and becomes completely invincible. He can also perform Premium Sign, where he autographs a portrait and flings it at the opponent. Dan has a move known as the Hisshou Buraiken, which is a standing parody of Ryo's flying Desperation move, the Ryuuko Ranbu. Dan also possesses a "Shoryu Reppa" type move called the Koryu Rekka, which was borrowed from the double uppercut at the end of Ryo's MAX Ryuuko Ranbu (he even imitates Ryo's "Kyokugen-ryuu Ougi!"/"Kyokugen-style secret!" yell that is used at the beginning of Ryuuko Ranbu, instead declaring "Saikyo-ryuu Ougi!"). Both moves have little to no range at all, and leave Dan wide open for attack if the moves are blocked.

Despite being the lowest tier amongst the main characters, Dan is still an above-average martial artist when compared to typical fighters. In the first volume of the manga Sakura Ganbaru!, Dan enters a street fighting competition and is shown doing rather well (though he admitted to using underhanded tactics, as he would "do anything to win"), only losing to Ken, who later went on to win the entire competition.

This seems to tie in to his appearance in Street Fighter IV, when he appears to be more serious, and his moves have been slightly upgraded in order to be balanced with other characters. He gains the new and quite powerful Haoh Gadouken Ultra Combo in Super Street Fighter IV, which is much similar to Ryo's super fireball. Dan's other Ultra in the Street Fighter IV series is Shisso Buraiken, which is basically his Hissho Buraiken, but he runs towards the opponent to connect. Similarly to the Haoh Gadouken, one can combo into the Shisso Buraiken with the Legendary Taunt.

TauntsEdit A running gag in all games that Dan appears in is his ability to taunt. In games where the player is limited to only one taunt, Dan is able to do an unlimited amount. Each Taunt also adds to his Super bar, generally (it varies by game) by a healthy amount. In Street Fighter IV, he is also able to perform a special Super Combo: the infamous "Super Taunt" (Chohatsu Dentetsu), which is simply a taunt dragged out for several seconds. It does absolutely no damage, and Dan is vulnerable throughout the entire escapade. It takes a whole Super Combo Gauge to perform. This attack is often seen as the ultimate insult, as it shows the player's confidence in victory enough to make him waste a chance at using a super move in favor of this, and performing it under any situation other than total victory is suicide. The interesting thing about this move is that Dan can perform his Ultra during the taunt, and, by starting this combo with the Gadouken, is the easiest way to hit with his Ultra.

Dan is one of only two characters in the Street Fighter series that has a super taunt, along with Sagat: Chouhatsu Densetsu (Legendary Taunt) and Chouhatsu Shinwa (Mythical Taunt).

Parody AttacksEdit In addition to his normal moveset, which parodies the moves used by "shoto"-style fighters, Dan has a move in some games known as the Otoko Michi (Way of the Man), which parodies Akuma's Shun Goku Satsu. The Otoko Michi is performed by doing the command for the Shun Goku Satsu in reverse. Depending on the game, the Otoko Michi can be as powerful as the Shun Goku Satsu, which can take off more than half of the opponent's lifebar, or it takes off a minimal amount of life from the opponent. In most versions, it leaves Dan with only 1% of his own life. Due to its slow speed and high costs, this move is considered highly unreliable and only used when absolute victory is certain. In Marvel vs. Capcom 2, it is the strongest single Hyper Combo in the game, even greater than the Shun Goku Satsu. In SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom, it not only does a considerable amount of damage when used, but he loses no life from performing it: this is due to the fact that it is his Exceed attack, all of which can only be done once per match and need a low amount of life remaining to become usable to begin with. Ironically, Dan parodies even more Kyokugen-style attacks in the SNK-produced games of the SNK vs. Capcom series. He gains the Gadou Sho Ko Ken (a Gadoken-ranged version of the Haoh Sho Ko Ken) in both SNK-produced games (as a Level 2 version of Shinkuu Gadoken in The Match of the Millennium, and a regular special move in SVC Chaos). In SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom, he also gains a parody version of Ryo's Tenchi Haoh Ken called Kyuukyoku Tenchi Gadou Zuki that is able to block any attack during the charge-up period, even normally unblockable moves, but does not do much damage and has an extremely long recovery time since Dan punches the opponent so hard that he breaks the bones in his hand, and needs some time to tend to it.

In Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, one can input a code just before the start of the match, in which Dan falls onto the ground, creating a comically huge explosion, instead of his normal entrance. He then gets up and the fight starts. This has absolutely no effect on gameplay.

Other Games Edit In the parody puzzle game Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, Dan's joke status continues. The gameplay in Puzzle Fighter revolves around setting up large blocks of "gems" to be broken, which will then drop countering gems on opponents in complex patterns in order to fill up their screens. Usually these attack gems fall in complex patterns designed to make it harder for opponents to successfully break them up. However, in Dan's case, every single gem dropped is red. This makes it comically easy for an opponent to break them all at once and create a massive counterattack that usually buries the Dan player completely. Perhaps even more so than in his traditional games, choosing Dan is considered the ultimate "sneer" to your opponent, since the amount of skill required to successfully play or beat someone else as Dan is so high that it is considered that no player of sound ability should ever lose to someone else playing as Dan. Stage ThemeEdit [1] [2] [3] [4] TriviaEdit Although Dan's face was originally designed to resemble Robert Garcia of Art of Fighting, his more recent portraits indicate that he may also be a spoof at Steven Seagal. Dan is one of the 19 characters in Street Fighter IV to not have second rivals in Super Street Fighter IV, despite having a ultra combo video to include his second rival (Sagat). The Dan is a Japanese mark of level, which is used in traditional fine arts and martial arts. In Street Fighter IV, Dan was unaware of the Second World Warrior Tournament, but in the non-canon UDON Comic Street Fighter II Turbo, Dan attempts to enter the finals of said tournament by stealing Guy's invitation. Guy lets him get away with it but Dan is unable to make good use of it as he is beaten by Sakura, after believing he was a contender by default. Using Dan's crouching and air taunt in SSFIV against an opponent allows him to attack, but not cause any harm to his opponent. Despite this, certain characters with counters will register them as "attacks". Additionally, using his air taunt as soon the jump animation starts increases his jumping height, making possible for him to dodge attacks such as a strong Shoryuken from Ryu, Ken, or Akuma. In the UDON comics Dan gets posessed by the Satsui no Hado for a moment. While dueling Sakura, he gets consumed by this power and kanji 'father' appears on his back as he tries to deliver an attack reminiscent of Shun Goku Satsu. In a typical Dan manner, while dashing towards Sakura, he trips on her school bag (losing the power in the process) allowing the girl to make short work of him. Later on in the UDON SFIV comic, Seth kidnaps Dan for the purposes of BLECE project which harnesses the power of Dark Hadou. According to a few of his in-game win quotes in SSFIV, Dan is unemployed, despite being able to pay for an infomercial that airs at 3 A.M, which should actually cost more than a phone bill, thus saying Dan does not set priority on his own account. According to Dan-specific win quotes in SFIV and SSFIV, most characters find Dan "entertaining", while others "can't stand him" or believe he is "all talk". Abel in particular even thanks him for the laughs. Nothing is ever stated about Dan's mother; she was possibly/most likely dead before the events pre-dating Street Fighter, although there's no source confirming that. It is possible that Sakura based her Focus Attack on Dan's EX Dankukyaku. Dan's Gadouken range has noticeably increased since his last canonical appearance in Street Fighter Alpha 3; it is much more reliable, but at the cost of him having a much slower release. The animation is also different: he extends his arm forward while launching the projectile. Dan's second costume color for his original costume is a reference to Ryo Sakazaki's default costume in the Art of Fighting and King of Fighters series. Capcom has a history of putting in subtle nods to Dan's origins as a parody of SNK's fighting games, and Dan has had the orange gi/blue shirt costume since Alpha. Dan's second alternate costume in Super Street Fighter IV might be a reference to what tribes in South America wear. Similarly, Blanka's second alternate costume is Dan's gi and outfit. These costumes are references to Dan and Blanka's friendship. In the patch for Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, Capcom has again improved Dan, albeit mildly on a basis of comparison to other characters. This is what Capcom stated: "In a lot of ways, we are aiming to make this the strongest version of Dan ever in a Street Fighter Series, so we have changed many things." Dan is seen in Sentinel's ending in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, where he is grabbed by a Sentinel for observation. In SVC Chaos Dan is the only person in the roster to not be transformed by the Red Arremer due to his lack of power. In Street Fighter IV when Dan wins against Sagat in arcade mode he says "Now I can finally visit my father's grave without being ashamed". This is a reference to Guile's qoute when he wins against M.Bison in arcade mode he says "Now I can finally visit Charlie's grave without being ashamed". Gallery Edit

All glory to Dan Habiki[edit]

Street Fighter Wiki FTW

"I hope you're ready for a beating!" —Dan, Street Fighter IV Dan Hibiki (火引 弾, Hibiki Dan) is a character from Capcom's Street Fighter series of fighting games. Dan is consistently portrayed as an arrogant, overconfident, awesome, yet utterly feeble character in many of the games he is featured in. He is widely considered to be the comic relief of the series because of his over-the-top poses, battle cries, and overall weak moveset. In essence, Dan is considered to be a joke character. In his most recent appearance in the home versions of Street Fighter IV, however, his moves have been slightly upgraded in order to be balanced with other characters.

Dan is usually given obnoxious or exaggerated attention; for example, in SFA2's intro. Added by HavocReaper48 Not long after Street Fighter II was released, rival video game company SNK released a fighting game, called Art of Fighting, starring Ryo Sakazaki and Robert Garcia. Ryo managed to bear a similarity in appearance, fighting style, and name to Ryu, and had the sa

Anyways...[edit]

me hair color as Ken. In humorous retaliation, Capcom included Dan as a secret character in Street Fighter Alpha. Connections to SNK CharactersEdit Dan's pink clothing is a spoof of Ryo's orange attire, while his head is a spoof of Robert's; he also taunts similarly to Yuri. Instead of using both hands to unleash his Gadouken (as Ryu, Ken, and even Sakura do for the Hadouken), he propels it with one hand, like Ryo, Robert and Yuri do for the Ko-oh-ken (that Robert calls Ryuugeki-ken). Dan can also taunt infinitely like the Art of Fighting games, unlike his fellow Street Fighter characters. In addition, he also had four unique taunts- one when he stands up, one crouching down, a short one when jumping, and a taunt exclusive to one of his special moves, Roll Taunt. Each taunt slightly fills up his Super Gauge. Dan's fighting style, the Saikyo-ryuu, is a parody of Kyokugen-ryuu, the fighting style used by Ryo and Robert. To further the parody, Saikyo-ryuu means "Strongest style" while Kyokugen-ryuu means "Extreme Style."

In Street Fighter Alpha 2, Dan is Ken's secret challenger (reached by finishing several fights in a row with Super Combos) and they exchange dialog, one line of which is Ken asking Dan if he knows the "art of fighting."

One of Dan's win quotes in Street Fighter Alpha 3 is "I hate the art of fighting, but I want to be the king of fighters!"; this is a direct reference to Art of Fighting and The King of Fighters series by SNK.


Dan's sister stopping him from killing Cyber Akuma Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In Dan's ending in Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, Dan's sister appears to prevent him finishing off Cyber-Akuma saying "Don't you know who he is? He's our...", parodying the ending of the original Art of Fighting where Ryo was about to kill Mr. Karate before being told he is their father by Yuri (Dan's sister even looks like her). In the SNK vs. Capcom series (more specifically in SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom), there is a running gag where Dan is often mistaken for Ryo or Robert, even by himself in a mirror match (Kasumi Todoh is one example: even after Dan tells her he is not Robert, she still does not believe him). In these games, Dan parodies even more of Ryo's attacks. He also mistook Mr. Karate for his father's ghost (though, in his ending in Neo Geo Pocket's SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium, he seems to acknowledge that Takuma and Go are different people). In Ryo's ending for Capcom vs. SNK 2, it is hinted that Dan came to the Sakazakis' Kyokugenryu Karate school to sign up.

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In Pocket Fighter, Dan can call on the ghost of his father, whose face resembles the same tengu mask as Mr. Karate. This is mirrored in Capcom's official artwork for Street Fighter Alpha; earlier works featured Dan's father as wearing a tengu mask while later ones show that the long nose was indeed a feature of Go Hibiki. All other instances of Go Hibiki's face are obscured, such as the image of young Sagat clutching Go's face shown at right. AppearanceEdit Dan has a similar outfit to Ryu and Ken, wearing a traditional Karate gi. Dan also wears a black undershirt like Ryo. His head and face closely resembles Robert from Art of Fighting, while his outfit is bright pink, reminiscent of Ryo's orange outfit in Art of Fighting. Coincidentally, orange is one of Dan's primary alternate colors. His fighting stance is similar to Ken and Ryu's (being how he was simply a palette-swap of those two); in later games, it is more "loose" and animated. As seen below, his appearance in Capcom VS. SNK 2 is more distinct in that he's lighter on his feet and his arms are positioned differently. In Street Fighter IV', he forgoes bouncing around in his stance in favor of hand and arm movements reminiscent of Tai Chi movements. Many of his mannerisms directly mirror those of Yuri Sakazaki.

Story Edit According to the Super Street Fighter IV blog, Dan was born on November 25. Dan's father, Gou, was a mixed martial artist and a rival of Sagat. Gou gouged out Sagat's right eye and Sagat beat him to death in retaliation. Because of this, Dan sought revenge on Sagat, 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 Saikyo-ryu or, "The Strongest Style," despite the complete weakness of his techniques. He set on a quest to find Sagat and take vengeance for his father's death. Sagat kills Dan's father Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 Street Fighter Alpha 2Edit In Street Fighter Alpha 2, Dan finds Sagat to avenge his father's death. During Dan's travels, he encounters Guy, who calls his moves cute. Guy then explains he is looking to challenge fighters. Dan accepts his challenge and fights Guy. He eventually encounters Sagat. When Dan taunts him on wanting to make the left eye match the right, Sagat comments that the man who took out his right eye paid with his life. Angered, Dan brands Sagat a murderer, knowing the man was his father. Sagat then comments that Dan should join his father, which then led to their fight. Dan's story is canonical; after their fight, Dan wins, although he doesn't know Sagat let him win, realizing how anger makes people do things they will regret. Satisfied that he finally avenged his father's death, Dan returns to Hong Kong and sets up his Saikyo-ryu Dojo. Street Fighter Alpha 3Edit

Dan opens his Dojo Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 "Dan finally defeated the man who killed his father... He made his own fighting style called Saikyo, "the strongest". But his ambitions will not rest until he achieves perfection..." —Dan's Street Fighter Alpha 3 Profile Dan travels the world, promoting Saikyo-ryu, until Chun-Li comes and questions him and asks if he is involved with Shadaloo. Dan fights her, wins and flees. While back in Thailand, he fights Sagat, hoping to take him under his wing, but refuses. After winning, he meets M. Bison, leader of Shadaloo and Sagat's employer, Dan remembers his fight with Chun-Li, blames him for it, then Bison orders Balrog to fight him. He wins, then fights Bison, after that, he finishes Bison off with his Hisshou Buraiken. He then turns the Psycho Drive Plant into his Saikyo Thailand dojo, where he and his friend Blanka, who he correctly refers to as Jimmy, learn Rolling Attack. Later, Charlie, who arrived late, comes with a flight squad and bombs the base, and Dan and Blanka escape. In an unknown time, he takes Sakura, the number 1 fan of his former master's student (Ryu) under his wing. However, while Sakura doesn't seem to mind Dan, he is unaware that she's using him to get to Ryu. Street Fighter IV Edit In Street Fighter IV, Dan is shown to be annoyed that he wasn't told of the second World Warrior Tournament, asking Blanka whether the crowds were bored to tears without a star like him to provide real action; in reality, Blanka tried to get in contact with him about the tournament, but couldn't, as Dan hadn't paid his phone bill and his phone was disconnected. Sakura also asks Dan whether he's heard anything about Ryu lately, since Dan has claimed that Ryu was an apprentice of his. To keep up this appearance, Dan says that Ken Masters is rumored to be entering the next World Tournament, which makes it likely that Ryu will also show up. Dan enters the new tournament to spread the popularity of his Saikyo style[2], barely getting enough points to qualify as a last-minute entry. At the end of the tournament, Dan is seen at the S.I.N. base, bumping into Blanka before an explosion threatens to engulf them both. They are saved by Ryu and Sakura, at which point Dan tells them to be more careful, as "even with [his] awesome powers" they may not survive the next wave. He then makes his exit to the amazement of all.[2] In an effort to capitalize on his association with great fighters, he broadcasts a commercial advertising the Saikyo-ryu dojo, telling people to drop in to enroll (his phone is still disconnected). However, when no-one turns up, S


I'm back mwahahahahaha[edit]

Stop that. It's making the article longer.[edit]

but dats da point[edit]

touche.[edit]

as i was saying[edit]

akura points out that the ad didn't contain the dojo's address, whereupon Dan realizes his mistake and screams.[3]

Other AppearancesEdit Street Fighter X TekkenEdit

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In the debut trailer of the crossover game, Street Fighter X Tekken, Dan is badly beaten and "killed" by Kazuya Mishima from the Tekken universe,[4] during which he elaborates on events regarding the plot. However, he makes a non-playable apearance as the training mode instructor. He is also shown to be trapped in Pandora in Sakura and Blanka's ending. Pocket Fighter Edit

Added by Ed-boy-wonder1718 In the unofficial events of Pocket Fighter, Dan's story begins with himself looking to expand his Saikyo-ryu school, and subsequently chooses Sakura as his student. Upon meeting Sakura, he offers to teach her his style, and she accepts after Dan defeats her in a fight. Sakura masters the entire Saikyo-ryuu style, after which writing a letter to Dan commenting on how she has purposely forgotten the entire Saikyo-ryuu style, calling his moves "retarded", thus humiliating Dan. In the Street Fighter AlphaStreet Fighter Alpha animated OVA, Dan is seen fighting Vega, as well as Birdie in another scene. Dan loses and is brutally defeated in both battles. Connections With Other Games/Media Edit Ran Hibiki, from the Rival Schools fighting game series, shares the same last name as Dan as well as some few similarities with him and it has been speculated that they are related to each other. A classmate of Ran is Chairperson, who learned to fight from a Saikyou-Ryu correspondence course. Sean from the Street Fighter III series, a student of Ken Masters who has a very limited mastery of the fighting style, has the win quotes, "Don't call me Dan!", "Rule #1: Never give up! Rule #2: Don't fight me! Rule #3: Don't be like Dan!" and "You fight like Dan. You ARE Dan!". In a Kamen Rider Decade episode, in which the characters are in Kamen Rider Hibiki's episode, Kadoya Tsukasa wears a pink kimono. This may be a reference to Dan, since the world's Rider shares his name with Dan's surname. GameplayEdit Due to his somewhat clumsy, slow and short moves, Dan is widely regarded as a joke character, not recommended to be used for any serious competition. He is also popular as a handicap to skilled players, as his weakness makes winning matches more difficult when against notably powerful characters such as Ryu, Ken and Charlie. As such, selecting Dan can in itself be seen as a taunt, since doing so implies high confidence that a player is superior in skill to his or her opponent. Strangely enough, the sheer comedy value made Dan a campy fan favorite of sorts. Although generally inferior to Ryu and Ken, in some areas he is slightly stronger. For instance his Dankukyaku can not be ducked under like Ryu and Ken's Tatsumaki Senpukyaku can, his taunt jump, allows him to jump higher than Ryu and Ken normally and it can interrupt in-air attacks. Each taunt also increases his super bar where Ryu and Ken's do not and his crouching and rolling taught and be good for avoiding and interrupting most attacks. He is difficult to use but he can be better than some of the other characters if used properly.

In Street Fighter IV, however, although his comical mannerisms remain intact, Dan appears to be more serious, and his moves have been notably upgraded to do equal damage to the those of the other mid-weight characters. His buffs and updates to his moves in the more recent games have actually allowed Dan to become a legitimate choice in the tournament setting, to the point that players say that Dan's greatest strength is the illusion that he's supposed to be bad.

Techniques Edit In the games he appears in, Dan is distinguished from Ryu and Ken by his ineffective special moves, such as a projectile with a comically short range (Gadouken, or Self-Taught Fist) and a triple-hitting flying kick that is easy to block (Dankukyaku, or Gale Kick); both are reminiscent of special attacks in Art of Fighting (if one had no Spirit Power in that game, special attacks become useless). Dan also possesses Koryuken, an anti-air uppercut (initially different, but eventually mimicking Ryu and Ken's Shoryuken) with very little horizontal range, during which he sometimes flashes and becomes completely invincible. He can also perform Premium Sign, where he autographs a portrait and flings it at the opponent. Dan has a move known as the Hisshou Buraiken, which is a standing parody of Ryo's flying Desperation move, the Ryuuko Ranbu. Dan also possesses a "Shoryu Reppa" type move called the Koryu Rekka, which was borrowed from the double uppercut at the end of Ryo's MAX Ryuuko Ranbu (he even imitates Ryo's "Kyokugen-ryuu Ougi!"/"Kyokugen-style secret!" yell that is used at the beginning of Ryuuko Ranbu, instead declaring "Saikyo-ryuu Ougi!"). Both moves have little to no range at all, and leave Dan wide open for attack if the moves are blocked.

Despite being the lowest tier amongst the main characters, Dan is still an above-average martial artist when compared to typical fighters. In the first volume of the manga Sakura Ganbaru!, Dan enters a street fighting competition and is shown doing rather well (though he admitted to using underhanded tactics, as he would "do anything to win"), only losing to Ken, who later went on to win the entire competition.

This seems to tie in to his appearance in Street Fighter IV, when he appears to be more serious, and his moves have been slightly upgraded in order to be balanced with other characters. He gains the new and quite powerful Haoh Gadouken Ultra Combo in Super Street Fighter IV, which is much similar to Ryo's super fireball. Dan's other Ultra in the Street Fighter IV series is Shisso Buraiken, which is basically his Hissho Buraiken, but he runs towards the opponent to connect. Similarly to the Haoh Gadouken, one can combo into the Shisso Buraiken with the Legendary Taunt.

TauntsEdit A running gag in all games that Dan appears in is his ability to taunt. In games where the player is limited to only one taunt, Dan is able to do an unlimited amount. Each Taunt also adds to his Super bar, generally (it varies by game) by a healthy amount. In Street Fighter IV, he is also able to perform a special Super Combo: the infamous "Super Taunt" (Chohatsu Dentetsu), which is simply a taunt dragged out for several seconds. It does absolutely no damage, and Dan is vulnerable throughout the entire escapade. It takes a whole Super Combo Gauge to perform. This attack is often seen as the ultimate insult, as it shows the player's confidence in victory enough to make him waste a chance at using a super move in favor of this, and performing it under any situation other than total victory is suicide. The interesting thing about this move is that Dan can perform his Ultra during the taunt, and, by starting this combo with the Gadouken, is the easiest way to hit with his Ultra.

Dan is one of only two characters in the Street Fighter series that has a super taunt, along with Sagat: Chouhatsu Densetsu (Legendary Taunt) and Chouhatsu Shinwa (Mythical Taunt).

Parody AttacksEdit In addition to his normal moveset, which parodies the moves used by "shoto"-style fighters, Dan has a move in some games known as the Otoko Michi (Way of the Man), which parodies Akuma's Shun Goku Satsu. The Otoko Michi is performed by doing the command for the Shun Goku Satsu in reverse. Depending on the game, the Otoko Michi can be as powerful as the Shun Goku Satsu, which can take off more than half of the opponent's lifebar, or it takes off a minimal amount of life from the opponent. In most versions, it leaves Dan with only 1% of his own life. Due to its slow speed and high costs, this move is considered highly unreliable and only used when absolute victory is certain. In Marvel vs. Capcom 2, it is the strongest single Hyper Combo in the game, even greater than the Shun Goku Satsu. In SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom, it not only does a considerable amount of damage when used, but he loses no life from performing it: this is due to the fact that it is his Exceed attack, all of which can only be done once per match and need a low amount of life remaining to become usable to begin with. Ironically, Dan parodies even more Kyokugen-style attacks in the SNK-produced games of the SNK vs. Capcom series. He gains the Gadou Sho Ko Ken (a Gadoken-ranged version of the Haoh Sho Ko Ken) in both SNK-produced games (as a Level 2 version of Shinkuu Gadoken in The Match of the Millennium, and a regular special move in SVC Chaos). In SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom, he also gains a parody version of Ryo's Tenchi Haoh Ken called Kyuukyoku Tenchi Gadou Zuki that is able to block any attack during the charge-up period, even normally unblockable moves, but does not do much damage and has an extremely long recovery time since Dan punches the opponent so hard that he breaks the bones in his hand, and needs some time to tend to it.

In Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, one can input a code just before the start of the match, in which Dan falls onto the ground, creating a comically huge explosion, instead of his normal entrance. He then gets up and the fight starts. This has absolutely no effect on gameplay.

Other Games Edit In the parody puzzle game Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, Dan's joke status continues. The gameplay in Puzzle Fighter revolves around setting up large blocks of "gems" to be broken, which will then drop countering gems on opponents in complex patterns in order to fill up their screens. Usually these attack gems fall in complex patterns designed to make it harder for opponents to successfully break them up. However, in Dan's case, every single gem dropped is red. This makes it comically easy for an opponent to break them all at once and create a massive counterattack that usually buries the Dan player completely. Perhaps even more so than in his traditional games, choosing Dan is considered the ultimate "sneer" to your opponent, since the amount of skill required to successfully play or beat someone else as Dan is so high that it is considered that no player of sound ability should ever lose to someone else playing as Dan. Stage ThemeEdit [1] [2] [3] [4] TriviaEdit Although Dan's face was originally designed to resemble Robert Garcia of Art of Fighting, his more recent portraits indicate that he may also be a spoof at Steven Seagal. Dan is one of the 19 characters in Street Fighter IV to not have second rivals in Super Street Fighter IV, despite having a ultra combo video to include his second rival (Sagat). The Dan is a Japanese mark of level, which is used in traditional fine arts and martial arts. In Street Fighter IV, Dan was unaware of the Second World Warrior Tournament, but in the non-canon UDON Comic Street Fighter II Turbo, Dan attempts to enter the finals of said tournament by stealing Guy's invitation. Guy lets him get away with it but Dan is unable to make good use of it as he is beaten by Sakura, after believing he was a contender by default. Using Dan's crouching and air taunt in SSFIV against an opponent allows him to attack, but not cause any harm to his opponent. Despite this, certain characters with counters will register them as "attacks". Additionally, using his air taunt as soon the jump animation starts increases his jumping height, making possible for him to dodge attacks such as a strong Shoryuken from Ryu, Ken, or Akuma. In the UDON comics Dan gets posessed by the Satsui no Hado for a moment. While dueling Sakura, he gets consumed by this power and kanji 'father' appears on his back as he tries to deliver an attack reminiscent of Shun Goku Satsu. In a typical Dan manner, while dashing towards Sakura, he trips on her school bag (losing the power in the process) allowing the girl to make short work of him. Later on in the UDON SFIV comic, Seth kidnaps Dan for the purposes of BLECE project which harnesses the power of Dark Hadou. According to a few of his in-game win quotes in SSFIV, Dan is unemployed, despite being able to pay for an infomercial that airs at 3 A.M, which should actually cost more than a phone bill, thus saying Dan does not set priority on his own account. According to Dan-specific win quotes in SFIV and SSFIV, most characters find Dan "entertaining", while others "can't stand him" or believe he is "all talk". Abel in particular even thanks him for the laughs. Nothing is ever stated about Dan's mother; she was possibly/most likely dead before the events pre-dating Street Fighter, although there's no source confirming that. It is possible that Sakura based her Focus Attack on Dan's EX Dankukyaku. Dan's Gadouken range has noticeably increased since his last canonical appearance in Street Fighter Alpha 3; it is much more reliable, but at the cost of him having a much slower release. The animation is also different: he extends his arm forward while launching the projectile. Dan's second costume color for his original costume is a reference to Ryo Sakazaki's default costume in the Art of Fighting and King of Fighters series. Capcom has a history of putting in subtle nods to Dan's origins as a parody of SNK's fighting games, and Dan has had the orange gi/blue shirt costume since Alpha. Dan's second alternate costume in Super Street Fighter IV might be a reference to what tribes in South America wear. Similarly, Blanka's second alternate costume is Dan's gi and outfit. These costumes are references to Dan and Blanka's friendship. In the patch for Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, Capcom has again improved Dan, albeit mildly on a basis of comparison to other characters. This is what Capcom stated: "In a lot of ways, we are aiming to make this the strongest version of Dan ever in a Street Fighter Series, so we have changed many things." Dan is seen in Sentinel's ending in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, where he is grabbed by a Sentinel for observation. In SVC Chaos Dan is the only person in the roster to not be transformed by the Red Arremer due to his lack of power. In Street Fighter IV when Dan wins against Sagat in arcade mode he says "Now I can finally visit my father's grave without being ashamed". This is a reference to Guile's qoute when he wins against M.Bison in arcade mode he says "Now I can finally visit Charlie's grave without being ashamed". Gallery Edit

She tipped the ambassador in the pit and threw astrologers at him!

You don't notice the dead leaving when they really choose to leave you. You're not meant to. At most you feel them as a whisper or the wave of a whisper undulating down. I would compare it to a woman in the back of a lecture hall or theatre whom no one notices until she slips out. Then only those near the door themselves, like Grandma Lynn, notice; to the rest it is like an unexplained breeze in a closed room.

Naming conventions. Follow the naming conventions!

We always look on the brighter side of death.

Gods big things, not safe.

Yes, my child.

There is no dreaming without waking. The Nightmares aren't real until you make them up.

Oh, don't get your knickers in a twist, Megan. I'm too lazy to take over the Darkside.

Every adventure requires a first step. Trite, but true, even here.

Three days to the chicken.

This is a full sentence.

Being in love was like China; you knew it was there, and no doubt it was very interesting, and some people went there, but I never would. I'd spend all my life without ever going to China, but it wouldn't matter, because there was all the rest of the world to visit.

You get that when you open a door that is not there with a key that does not exist...

'Spinach' is my code word for 'spinach'.

Goodbye.

Home is where the heart is.

Colour is a funny thing. We expect it to be there and it is not, we do not and it is... and what, even, is it? Funny.

Rolling around at the speed of death plane...

This was ridiculous. The last thing he needed now was to be killed. It would require all sorts of explanations. They didn't hand out new bodies just like that; they always wanted to know what you'd done with the old one. It was like trying to get a new pen from a particularly bloody-minded stationery department.

You know what they say.

A workforce full of retards is a retarded workforce.

"I will do nothing!" she yelled defiantly, and ceased existing.

Narrowly escaping death through a clever use of undead vegetables...

Ya like jazz?

So, I'm a racist because I'm human? Tell me, dwarf... who is the racist?

There is no dreaming without waking. The Nightmares aren't real until you make them up.

I do not fear death. Do you? You should. You are not yet dead.

Life as a slave is not life at all.

I miss the good old days when skill, not technology, determined squishiness.

Salt your watermelon, m'love...

I always order food in a restaurant.

Two by two. Everyone has a match, a mate, a doppler. I love you.

Ideas can be glorious. But what is the use when they do not get written down? They just fade into oblivion...

Zombiebaron zombiebaron zombiebaron. Zombiebaron, zombiebaron!

By the way, I'll tell you that in Belgian Congo there's not a single person who tells the truth. They just lie all day long. Start at seven in the morning and keep at it until nightfall. So if I lie a little now and then, it's just because I've spent a little too much time in Belgian Congo.

I'm getting bored...

Why, you didn't see it coming? Who would, really, trapped in a gallery of hearts... it's unimaginable.

Why don't you look out of the window?

Then did I wake.

No excellent soul is exempt from a mixture of madness.

Does that make sense? I didn't think it did.

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Operating under the assumption that the assumption is valid, the assumption is no more valid than the assumption that precedes it. Which assumption is valid?


In normal times, evil would be fought by good...

Lady, I'm your worst nightmare - a pumpkin with a gun!

And indeed there will be time, there will be time to prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet.

This is the house of leaves. Here the memories begin.

I'm not a terrorist. I'm just a jerk.

The answer? A resounding maybe.

Traffic congestion is not included in GDP.

It's raining... whispers in the leaves.

If it's not practically useful, then it's practically useless.

I see only from one point, but in my existence I am looked at from all sides.

This is the way the world ends.

Ah, zombie estimation at its finest.

We'll do things that rich people do. We'll bathe in... fish. And eat our weight in chocolate buttons!

We are small but we are many, we are many, we are small... we were here before you rose; we will be here when you fall.

Anyone can decide something is the case, and if one is resolute enough, it will really be the case... if only for a little bit. But minds are curious things.

You shouldn't have yelled. It made me nervous.

What's the point of being better than everybody else if nobody else sees it?

We see patterns. We see what we know. What we think we know, what we want to know...

It seemed like a good idea at the time.

I am better than fish.

Oh, we've got lots of mercy... lots and lots of mercy...

Interesting, yes... lots of mad people questioning madness. Some plead sanity, some insanity, but neither group really know what they're talking about.

Gag me with a spoon!

What happened to our little truce? Why, it had a fatal accident...

The filesystem tree is full of holes. Walk down the branches, follow the inodes, one misstep and into the abyss we go. The leaf was not what it seemed. It was a root. The root. Another root. Tree growing out of a tree growing out of itself growing out of another tree... infinite recursion. Infinite holes.

Never trust a man who knows only truth; he will try to tell it to you, and it will all be wrong.

U+FDD0 is actually Unicode for the eye of the basilisk, but for safety reasons no font actually renders it.

Centuries of philosophical debate reduced to a potty joke. Nice.

If others had not been foolish, we should be so.

Oooh, magical food. Wonder what it tastes like... perhaps it can turn me into a mutant! A... vegetarian mutant, because it would be cannibalism to eat ham.

But I like being miserable.

We are the skins of dead men. We collect skins. Oh, but we would cherish its skin; it has such a lovely skin... and it would live forever as a skin.

What's that, you say? My exam? Oh, it's going straight to hell, and thank you for asking. At least it gave me these beautiful lines so that I can flunk with style, yes?

The lame-stream media is very lame.

I knew it was going to be in the last place I looked for it. So I looked there first!

The computer, after much analysis and consideration, proudly announced that there was no possible way to remove the sofa from its improbable position. So on a hunch, he told it to analyse how it had gotten there in the first place. After much analysis and consideration, it announced that there was no possible way it could have arrived in that position, either.

My name is Indigo Montoya. You killed my father; prepare to die.

You can't... change... people.

I am the truest mask. The... truest...

BLOBS! Well, okay... binary large objects. But blob sounds better.

The Goddess protects me from angry hornets, forever and always!

What is conciousness?

This is the madness.

The robot is pregnant. It isn't mine.

We are very sophisticated. We have just proven that the expected value of 5 is 5.

Your interference will not be tolerated.

Don't break the world.

There is no home but for heartbreak.

All they are is ideas... until someone puts them together.

'I will build a garden of remembering. And there the dreams will dream.' Or so I kept insisting.

Goats smell really bad. And the smell lingers... on the milk, the cheese...

For all intents and purposes, it does not exist.

Copying visions from my imagination...

We still remember, even if the memories aren't even our own...

Completely implausible? Yes. Nevertheless, worth keeping a can of shark repellent next to the bed.

The whole affair ended horribly unspectacularly, no shoot out, no time machines, not even a shrink to coax me off a ledge. Such a shame.

Sometimes you have to drop a bomb on civilians to bring folks to the table.

They'd come here too spoon and, on one memorable occasion, fork.

I really would prefer not to have a glass half empty or full of nuclear waste. I would much prefer to have a glass entirely empty of the stuff.

No, no, no, no, no, no! No!

This is how it always should have been - beautiful and empty, pristine and perfect... impeccable form. Funny how all we needed do was stop worrying about what to do... or about anything at all.

What in the blazes possessed you to try to input a file with SQL statements in it into a bloody MySQL database?

I have worn so many masks... I have forgotten which one is my real face.

This is the way the world ends.

And what will you put your faith in? Certainly not something so simple or unknown as the human mind; that is no more sensible that any other fallacy. But without our fallacies, what have we? Objects shall fall upwards, perhaps? Effect precedes cause... but of course it does. I am standing on my head because you are about to dare me to do so. I trust you to be you.

The present is but a nightlight that lights up the dark hallway we call life.

It is said that your life flashes before your eyes just before you die. That is true, it's called Life.

It's not what you think.
