The Street Fighter V CE Story Thread: Back From The Dead & Better Than Ever


Recommended Posts

Dan has become a worthless except as a perfect example of Capcom's seeming inability to do anything but Flanderize their most prominent characters. Instead of being lovable and having redeeming qualities, Dan just keeps getting his joke-status upgraded again and again.

 

I'm hoping they prove me wrong...but I doubt it.

 

Man, I really really hope SF6 has a very new direction

I am very happy with what we saw today, also Oro looks great! What a nifty surprise!

 

Rose’s stage, the animation, her scarf effects, the Tarot card functions, Dan’s functions, I dig it. Overall the new presentation style is good. Dang, so new training stage and yes, Eleven is a bonus character, so 5th is still a mystery. Hmmm. Good work Capcom, keep it up!

Wasn't he deemed a failure? Why would they introduce a character like that unless they intend to flex the engine to the max and do crazy animations - but we got a bit of that with Seth.

That's what I'm curious about....though for the last couple of hours since the rumours started. I wondered if in a totally crazy, left-field decision it's part Charlie part Eleven in a post-ASF survival bit of weirdness or something. Otherwise, I'm thinking they had left over money somehow and made him as a true bonus and to say sorry about the delays?

Heh, well you're good dude, real good. I legit am down to collab with you and pay you for assisting with my project if you ever are interested. 👍

I finished my first book and finally got the stones to post it on B&N and Amazon. So I have time. It's a hobby so my second book comes out when it comes out.

I knew it's gonna be close to my previous request in SRK threads

 

Something like SFEX Extra Random Select, Marionette and Shadow from Vampire Savior.

 

because also the ransom-attack leak never shown any completed Eleven content.

 

Eleven ended up like what I'm expecting a random select feature, Not a real playable character. 


It also totally makes entirely a sense

Because Eleven doesn't show that it can fight like Twelve in some previous preview or could fight without the mimicking another character.

Twelve gets the interesting features of Eleven and Necro (Elasticity).

Twelve came late from the SF3 series(3rd strike)

 

Which technically makes the project where Necro is belong also did a contribution to  evolution of Twelve as a being.
 

It's lore wise that also show that your giving an advantage over an opponent and the match isn't to be viewed ordinary by spectators. Which is very good indicator.

 

In UI and UX design, It's something close to a diegetic UI as we call it.

 

The feature that Eleven wasn't made close to the likes Marionette or Shadow(DS3) is likely because of DLC character encounters that some players may had not purchased yet.

I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!
Not only did Capcom choose the best stage Rose has ever had (SFZ2) mixed with the best theme music Rose ever had (SFZ3, maybe the only theme actually better than those of the previous game); they even confirmed one of my suspicions about that stage in SFZ2.
We all know that Rose’s Genoa stage in SFZ2 and SFV is actually Venice with only few elements of the actual Genoa. One was Cristopher Columbus’ statue, the other was the ship.
I always suspected they wanted to refer either to the Santa Maria or to the Neptune, a galleon replica used in Roman Polański’s 1986 movie Pirates, indeed now docked in Genoa’s old port; but in SFZ2 it was too difficult to pinpoint her with any certainty.
Now Capcom pretty much confirmed the ship is in fact the Neptune.

They even faithfully reproduced the aftercastle’s lamps!

Justice for Twelve.

Kolin repurposed Eleven and used it to resurrect Nash. It had it's use.

Chun-Li to Dan: "Sorry. You were acting suspicious, so I kicked you. It's what I do."

 

Dan to Chun-Li: "C'mon, give it a rest, lady! What are you investigatin' me for?!

 

 

Thoughts: Okay, Chun's win quote to Dan is actually freaking funny. I think Chun might actually kick Dan for being annoying more than being suspicious. (Because Really, Dan suspicious?)  But her quote made me laugh.

 

Dan to Chun-Li's quote, sounds like he's just trying to get away from her because he can't escape from being the joke. Poor Dan, he can't escape any BS

 

(Dan is the only character to talk during his YOU WIN animation too)

Dan's pretty fun, here's a quick run down:

-Dan's story is simple but fun. He's moping around about no new students to himself, scares some school girls with his hilariously over the top faces as he finds the Blanka-chan dolls, decides he needs to captialize on this idea. Cracks the glass and runs off, Sakura chases him and they fight. After the fight Dan bums some cash from Sakura, then we get SF2 map screen as he flies to Brazil and fights Jimmy. There's some great little moments between Dan and Jimmy. Dan keeps saying they're both using Sakikyo style and calling Blanka-chan creepy, but Jimmy's getting a bit annoyed at that. Dan crafts and mas produces Saikyo boy dolls. The end. Goofy bit of fun

In arcade mode I fought Rashid on 2nd level, got here comes a new challenger with Sakura after.

Dan's final boss is G.

Quotes

Dan vs Ibuki: Stabbin' someone in the head with a kunai is not cool! That woulda been deadly for anyone else!

Dan vs Juri: Really leanin' hard into that psychopath shtick, huh? I'd dial it back a little, sister.

Dan vs Kolin: Your moves are freezin' cold...! Hey, y'know, the Saikyo Dojo needs an air conditioner...

Dan vs Charlie: Don't take this the wrong way, but you kinda look like a zombie. You okay?

Dan vs Vega: King of a borin' mask you got there, chief. If you want, I can get you a WAY cooler one!

Dan vs Sagat: Some emperor you are. Consider my father avenged!

Dan vs G: President of the World, huh? I'm Dan Hibiki of Saikyo fame! But you knew that already.

G vs Dan: It is no contradiction to say we can all the the strongest! I am here to prove that!

Dan's ending: he thinks he beat G, in his thought bubble we see all the bosses, Blanka and others training under G, but G totally beat him up in reality and says "That's quite the imagination you've got, citizen."

Entertaining and dumb. Dan's story and Dan's character in a nutshell.

Very fitting, fun, and stupid. I love it.

Appreciate that, Shock. Nothing will ever be nearly as tough as tackling Lucia, Honda, and Poison in the same night. That was hell!

"It begins with Dan walking around a neighborhood wondering why no one has shown interest in joining his dojo. With Saikyo-Style being the strongest, surely that would be enough to rope others in. Dan’s won a championship tournament and even appeared on a TV commercial. On top of all that, Saikyo is a super cool fighting style, has the self-proclaimed best master in the entire world, is well respected throughout the world, and the master is “extraordinarily handsome”.

 

His good looks is almost reinforced by one of the nearby girls. The other seems to think he’s creepy, with Dan admitting he can’t hide his creepiness. Neither of the girls were actually paying any attention to Dan, though. Both were focused on the dolls within the crane machine. Dan immediately recognized them to be mascot dolls of his good friend, Jimmy. Apparently when he wasn’t paying attention, Jimmy’s popularity exploded in Japan once he released his dolls there. Dan is shocked about this...while also cracking the crane machine’s glass with his face.

 

In that same moment, the frightened girls called for someone to get the weird guy away from the machine. Seeing that the crane machine was broken again, Sakura gives chase to Dan and eventually catches up to him. With Dan’s troublesome behavior, he’s lucky it was Sakura that caught up to him instead of the authorities. Dan tells Sakura it’s because of the doll he saw in the crane machine, which Sakura refers to as the “Blanka-chan” doll. The doll was pretty popular among teens for a while. Upon hearing this, Dan suddenly has a great idea….but he needs to borrow money from Sakura to get there. His destination is Brazil.

 

Once he comes across Blanka, the two have a quick sparring match before catching up. Blanka is impressed that Dan is still strong, but Dan assures him that their progress is because of Saikyo-Style. Blanka, of course, reminds Dan that he’s not a Saikyo-Style practitioner. Dan doesn’t seem to care either way. What he’s interested in is Jimmy’s overnight success with Blanka-chan. He’s still surprised that a creepy doll could be so popular, though Blanka disagrees on the creepy part.

 

Dan then decides to show his interesting looking creation: Saikyo-boy doll. This is his response to Blanka-chan. He’s already mass produced them in hopes of building up a following for Saikyo-Style. This upcoming mascot will be the next big thing in terms of winning over the hearts of the teens. Blanka shares Dan’s enthusiasm...aside from Dan’s proclamation that Saikyo-boy will undoubtedly become a hundred times more popular than the creepy Blanka-chan ever was.

 

Dan is determined to make Saikyo-boy doll a hit with teens across the world. Once Saikyo-boy is a hit, they can focus on making Saikyo-Style a hit as well. Blanka, again, has to remind Dan that he’s not Saikyo-Style, but Dan doesn’t consider that part a big deal. Why? Because Saikyo-Style is #1 in the world."

 

I really enjoyed Dan's story. It was lighthearted and fun.

Finally some new character content!.....and it's Dan. ...😒

 

Well his SFV ending is interesting enough. I'm sure that G was supposed to be an important boss character than what he currently is, hopefully this gets expanded upon in SF6 since this season is SFV's swansong.

 

Does Dan ever have an original idea of his own?  Now he's gone and copied Blanka's business idea.

Link to post

For anyone that is interested, I just posted a bunch of SFVI concepts in the character concept thread. I've been sitting on them since November. It takes a significant amount of time to post them due to having to manually format each one. The formatting doesn't carry over from my documents unfortunately.

RyoRedcyclone points out that, although Dan is generally written as a joke, he has some real ability: not only his fighting prowess was actually recognised by Gouken (he kicked Dan out, but that's another story), but, since SFZ3, he's also the official interpreter for Sakura in her journey around the world. He can speak Japanese, English, Cantonese, Thai and even a bit of French and Russian!
