Gather round kids! It's time for some fun facts about the Street Fighter character Dan!

Dan made his first appearance as a secret/joke character in Street Fighter Zero/Alpha pt 1 (1995).

However, Dan's roots can be traced years earlier to this official illustration of Sagat from Street Fighter 2 (1991) by Akiman! See that limp goon in Sagat's grip? The pink gi? Ponytail? The tight black undershirt? That's Dan!

From the start it was clear that Dan Hibiki was a parody of Ryo and Robert from SNK's rival fighting game series, Art of Fighting. The unnamed, utterly defeated. throwaway fighter from the Sagat illustration grew into the character we know and love today!
