    I'm curious as to why his stage is called Apprentice Alley though.

    I think it's where Dhalsim teaches people his yoga. You can see some people in the background doing some yoga floats.
    This is the most plausible reason, Dhalsim has been teaching people to float since Alpha 2

    That's his Z3 stage.

    Damn, I pulled the same shit over on the Warriors Fate thread mistaking Guy's Alpha stage for his Alpha 2 stage. I confuse all the Alpha stages, they all seem to run together for me, especially Akuma's and Sagat's Z2 and Z3 stage. :pensive:

    Either way, Dhalsim isn't unfamiliar to teaching his yoga to others. He may have successfully taught multiple students by the time SFV rolls around. He certainly has that "Master" vibe this time around in terms of looks.

    Dhalsim becoming a full-on teacher would be great growth for him.

    Dhalsim Yoga Pants DLC costume would be epic.

    Well Sim isn't the only character who may be tied to that stage so I dunno. I wonder if we'll see more stages or not. I'm expecting a new stage reveal with Fan which may pan out some storyline. We certainly haven't seen a shadowloo stage or anything yet.

    Is there a capacity limit on threads here? It could be that the thread got some many posts it deleted itself. I've been to forums that had that kind of thing in place.

    I noticed the off-topic and WTF buttons are gone. How is vasili gonna communicate with us now?

    I guess I'll be stuck with 5 Off Topics and 12 WTF's forever. As long as they don't get rid of the LOL button I'm good. Daemos I concur with you Vasili's last post. That was definitely WTF worthy. Back to the topic, are we only expecting a Fan reveal or will be getting more info on the SFV's story presentation at Playstation Experience.

    I think we will only be getting the Fan reveal now. They will probably wanna save the big guns for a higher impact event like PSX. Whatever the case, the story stuff should be popping up in the coming 4 weeks.

    Also @Darc Requiem if you check your profile you will notice the Off-topic and WTF counts have also been removed.

    I see someone noticed. Since you asked, It t's because I didn't like having 'The' in the thread title twice, it didn't have a nice ring to it. Removing the second 'the' from 'the new challengers' didn't feel right either so I went with 'new generation' instead.

    Wow...I...

    F.A.N.G. is...awful looking. It looks like they gave up halfway through designing him and just said "Fuck it". He looks like a poor mans Tao Pai Pai with far less personality. Even his entire visual style just looks...wrong for the game. Like a One Piece aesthetic suddenly jumped into the game but is totally limited to one character. Bizarre.

    His fighting style looks...immaterial. Generic kung-fu from comedy films. The long sleeves are totally stupid and make him look like gender-swap Hsien-Ko. The long-sleeves work for Hsien-Ko because they reinforce her sort of cute look as if she's wearing something too large for her. With Fang it just looks awkward and dumb.

    Basically, he looks like a bland rip-off of these guys...

    kung-fu-hustle-tueurs-fung-hak-on_229a328be90500badd6ab4186d507177.jpg

    And they were awesome with their music & claw-based martial arts. That's cool and unique. Fang? Not so much. I think everyone that frequents this thread knows that I've been very positive with the game and have loved the cast especially knowing my boy Urien is in which gives me 1 game with my 3 favorite characters from the 3 generations of SF (Vega, Charlie and Urien)...but this is a total miss for me. I had high-hopes for a new Shadaloo lord and, for me, this is a miss in every way. His look and fighting style are both terrible.

    Holy shit, was I off or what? I did not expect him to look like this at all. Still ended up looking really creepy, though.

    Why in the world would Lord Bison be associated with fucktards like this? Age must be getting to him, because Bison seems like the type to vaporize guys like this just for looking like that.

    Regardless, I'm looking forward to seeing his connection with Shadaloo and stuff. Looks like he took Sagat's place.

    He also seems to have some type of Poison, so that's probably what Bison was referring to in that voice clip.
    Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. It's just that yours is stupid.

    Yea I definitely thought of those guys from Kung Fu Hustle when I seen Fan... or Fun... I mean Fang... Fin Fang Foom?
    He has the Mercenary Tao style threads, a Kung Lao style hat, but his fighting style is just kung fu clownish. Out of all the Shadaloo lords I'm betting he's the boot-licker, one that is totally obedient to Bison to the point its saccharine. Why is his name an acronym, and what does it stand for, or like S.I.N will we ever know?

    Although the new Shadaloo stage is looking pretty epic. I think there's a ninja fighting a sorcerer in the background, and the statues are just boss.

    I bet the last thread was deleted because we dug too deep into the unknown history of SF comics. Talking about SvC was fine, but when we pulled out the 3rd student of Goutetsu and Bison's master, well, it would seem someone wants these things to stay secret.
    Gill and Illuminati confirmed lol

    *ducks out of corner, looks left and right* I...I actually like Fang. *goes back to corner*

    From what I remember of the leaked audio, he absolutely is. He's the first Shadaloo member we've seen who is so devoted to Bison. He wants to be the highest member without taking over just so he can serve Bison better.

    About the acronym, I've been speculating that he's not above experimenting on himself since he's so devoted to rising to the challenge, coupled with his bizarre appearance, claws and poison. I think he made a new project and applied it to himself.

    Fuck you guys, Fang's awesome. Martial arts movies have a rich history of screwball kung fu masters, and I'm glad to see one here. His name and poison effects make me think he'll have a strong "snake" theme to his design, which is a pretty common trope on both sides of the Pacific. (Reptile, Hazama, Jafar, Cobra Commander)

    He's a tribute to kung fu movies. I applaud him and hope to main either him or Dhalsim.

    I dunno how about you guys, but I just can't help but think that F.A.N.G. is not human. His proportions are not typically human, his appearance is really weird, his name is stylized as an abbreviation, and his moves (poison projectiles and poison cloud) also come off as rather unusual

    He is a freak-character that stands out from the more down-to-earth designs of SF cast, and he reminds me of the likes of Faust, Twelve, Necro, Arakune

    Quite possibly he is a Shadaloo experiment, which explains his membership (shown potent as a fighter, basically a successful project) and, like it or not, Bison DOES need a Sagat replacement since Sagat chose a peaceful life

    The flapping is weird, but rewatching the trailer it looks like he's spreading the poison and fanning it into the airborne opponent. At first I thought he infected people with claw swipes, but looking back it is a launched projectile (smoke or a mist of some sort)

    Why would Bison hire this turd as his #2? Why would he authorize the construction of statues of his lackies whom he actually knows they will betray him (yes even FANG will betray Bison according to the leaked sound files)? And in his control room of all places!!!! SF is becoming a parody of itself. It's the difference between the firsy Evil Dead film and its comedy sequel Army of Darkness.

    Seth is a masterpiece compared to FANG (whatever that stands for).

    @Shockdingo SIN actually stands for Shadaloo Intimidatiom Network yet the heroes in SF4 were trying to see if the corporatiom has connections to Shadaloo. That's the level of stupid we could be dealing with again.
    He may be bizarre, but the guy's got an interest in dubious experimentation and is a fighter, could have caught his eye by presenting him with interesting results and he could have made a name for himself by killing, creating, or gathering resources for Shadaloo. Way too early to write off his competence.

    Meh, a parody of itself? I disagree. Sure there's elements I'm not a fan of, but I don't see it heading in that direction.

    I don't think you're far off actually. In his write up, the mention he has a passion for the experiments of Shadaloo. Maybe he was a longtime researcher or someone important to Bison, but not a Shadaloo trooper (or a looooow one who's chief contributions came from elsewhere), and he finally made a scientific breakthrough, tested it upon himself, became this thing and applied the technique or treatments to Bison to push him into his strongest form? With his ambition, I really can see this guy taking on dangerous experimentation to push himself higher in performance so senpai can notice him. Heck, maybe that's where the experiment fetish comes from. "It did wonders for meeeeeeeee! Let's see what it can do for others!"

    Actually now that I see Fang and I think of those audio files...maybe Fang isn't as "ra-ra Bison!" as we think and is actually more like Bison's own personal Starscream. He seems like a duplicitous scumbag...

    I think the proportions and his super are what's REALLY bothering me about him. The overall look I could be down with...but his design looks distinctly impossibly inhuman compared to everyone else and it is seriously irking me. It's like he's in an entire different art style.

    That could be. I didn't listen to all the audio files, the only ones I heard had him praising Bison more than any past Shadaloo character. Who knows? Maybe he is "ra-ra Bison is my king, my God!" at first, but over the course of the storyline he (Bison) gets, injured or something. This creates a moment like Adon and FANG feels that his hero wasn't that great afterall, or now he could do better and his obsession pushes him to now be number 1 for the sake of the purity of the vision of Shadaloo that Bison now has strayed from rather than a simple betrayal for the sake of a betrayal? (Could be interesting to see a guy so invested in Bison's vision that he feels his leader husbando straying from it an iota is call for revolt --kinda like super obsessed fans who turn on a pop star or film star if they have a misstep) Like I said, didn't hear the ones that showed he'd betray Bison, so I could be waaay waaaay off.
