Why He Rocks

    • In fact, one of his biggest inspirations are his good friends Ken Masters and Sakura Kasugano.
  2. He is incredibly brave, traveling across the world for a single fight in the streets, even if it means probable death.
  3. He appears in many of Capcom's produced crossovers along with Chun-Li, such as the Marvel vs. Capcom titles and the Project X Zone duology.
    • In fact, he also appeared in Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U and will return in Ultimate, making it the first time he met the cast of Nintendo other than the ones from Fire Emblem such as Marth.
  4. He trains to become strong enough so he can fight against his greatest enemies, M. Bison and Akuma.
  5. He started the trend of competitive fighting games, along with Scorpion for horror-based fighters.
  6. He never backs down from becoming a better martial artist.
