|~ Dan Hibiki|
Dan Hibiki is a protagonist from the Street Fighter series. He appeared in the 53rd episode of DEATH BATTLE!, Hercule Satan VS Dan Hibiki, where he fought against Hercule Satan from the Dragon Ball series. He was voiced by Brad Venable.
Dan was the son of mixed martial arts master Go Hibiki, who was murdered by Sagat after he was responsible for gouging out the Muay Thai champion's eye. Dan then went on a quest to avenge his father's death by training to become a fighter, but was expelled from Gouken's dojo when his motivations were learned. Dan thus developed his own style of Gouken's martial art merged with Muay Thai elements and called it Saikyō-ryū, or "Strongest style," despite the complete weakness of his techniques.
