    As Capcom named the first six DLC characters' silhouette, Boxer has a robe dress with an Eye of Providence-like emblem on it. He could have his own agenda working in the shadows for Urien. Guile has an emlbem too on his military jacket.

    The new Shadaloo lab stage has exotic fighters training in martial arts, a scientist and an cosmonaut floating around.

    My guess is Fang was probably a typical Shadaloo lackey at some point, but was eventually selected for an experimental procedure that would turn him into a living weapon. This procedure was developed by SIN as the F.A.N.G. project, and was there next step after the BLECE project. Once he was transformed, Bison immediately appointed him as the 2nd in command after seeing his power and enthusiasm to serve him

    I'm sure it'll be vastly different in the actual story. I think it's a good start, though.

    Now that we have all 16 inicial characters revealed, i believe that the final boss will be bison.
    fang just doesn't feel like he can fit the role... he's a goofy fighter imo and unless he's faking the speech and maneirisms (like tobi in naruto anime) he isn't going to be the boss, but would be awesome if it did turn out to be like that!
    I can imagine him being like how he's presented in the trailer just to piss off Vega...
    Necalli does have that feel though but only if he's in constant ssj mode... which i believe won't happen.
    Bison on the other hand is that bad guy we all know even though he's not the boss in every game he's been, so i guess he's the one who we will face at the end.
    All the other characters just don't have the boss type material in them, unless ryu becomes his other self (which i won't mind at all) and goes out on a rampage...
    But it would be nice, though, to have a secret character as the final boss after all those leaks...
    That would show'em right Ono?
    Please? :p

    as for fang's origin... i'm guessing he's a part of an experiment by SIN with some kind of poison contraption like vipers shoes that allowed fire and propulsion and was integrated in bison's ranks after seths betrail and sagat leaving shadoloo...

    I highly doubt we have someone like Akuma waiting. He still needs character art and an announcer voice clip; Capcom would have had to add everything at the last minute, which I doubt they'll do because they already have the DLC characters there.
    I think Balrog probably has this outfit or something similar:
    Street-Fighter-Balrog-USA-Robe-Exclusive-1.jpg
    They probably waited to change Birdie's affiliation because "Kanzuki family freeloader" would have made Karin too obvious. I always thought "Ex-member of Shadowloo" was a really stupid affiliation because it just says who he isn't with.

    Someone on the Fang thread made a telling observation concerning Fang. The kanji symbol 貳 on the front of his garb, and 二 on his sleeves stands for "Two". This would make sense as he is now Bison's second in command, but 貳 could also be seen as "betray". Could this allude to Fangs true intentions?
    The man I face...my closest friend, my brother in arms, and my greatest rival...how has it come to this?

    Despite his over the top mannerism I think F.A.N.G is the only associate to trust for Dictator. He sounds completely devoted to the cause, plus he's a brainy scientist and more credible than Claw and Boxer. One is an unpredictable narcissistic sociopath and the other's a greedy watchdog -remember that he was hired only to guard Dictator's replacement bodies in IV- always looking for the highest bidder. It's clear that those two don't have any interest in Dictator's world domination philosophy and they are still serving him for their own purposes.

    I remember Boxer's line to Seth "I could sell this data for millions! Now, I just need to find a buyer...", talking about all those fighting techniques and secrets acquired. This and the fact he kindapped that young replacement body could be a good nod to his affiliation with the highest bidder of the day: Urien. I never believed the idea that Abel/Seth/Urien/Gill sharing the same moves is just a coincidence. That could be explained by those aforementioned sold data or something similar.

    hmm... Fang could be the scientist that eventually creates Necro and develops Twelve; His current gear could be in answer to C.Vipers seemingly superior tech, and his canny design could complement or even contrast other WW too. I would hold off any critical judgements but my initial reaction was this...

    If Tao-Pi-Pi was a Disney character, that moved like Voldo, cosplaying as Hsien-Ko, with some of Starscream's mechination, and formerly henched for the Monarch... He'd be almost as complexly inspired as Fang. Weather or not this is a good thing remains to be scene.

    p.s. That weapon flapping CA reminded me of Mousse from Ranma1/2 (near sighted amazon male w/ a duck curse who specializes in hidden weapon fighting)

    From the looks of that intro it looks like Evil Ryu is still a thing. Also, there's no way Necalli isn't the final boss, at least of season one with how much focus they gave him.
    The only thing I really know is that I don't know a damn thing.

    Looks like Necalli is targeting Ryu from the opener. Ken is standing in for Guile helping Chun and Cammy deal with Bison.

    So Capcom gave us the opening cinematic for SFV on stream. It's kind of short, it goes like this:
    -Ryu does the pose from the cover
    -Chun, Cammy, and Ken are fighting Bison
    -Hi Necalli
    -Ryu is knocked down
    -Rashid vs Fang
    -More Necalli, the scars on his body glowing in a V shape
    -Cut to logo

    Eagle called it first: "Another gutter slob looking for a handout, no doubt..."

    So I guess the Kanzuki family is a relevant faction now? Right now we are looking to see
    Shadowloo (Bison, Balrog, Vega, Fan)
    Illuminati (Urien, Nash)
    Kanzuki affiliates (Karin, Birdie, Mika)
    anti-Shadowloo squad (Guile, Chun, Cammy)

    I feel Juri and Ibuki will find a place among these groups. No Mad Gear makes me :sad:

    Never, Juri is the wild card. The "ace in the hole". Yesssssssssssssssssssssssssssss she doesn't need mere peasants! That girl....is alllllllllllllll solo.

    Ken, Chun, and Cammy fought Bison. Rashid fought Fang. Ryu fought Necalli. Possible that we may have character specific bosses, with Bison being a default final for most of the cast.

    If Necalli is the final boss then it's gona be a facepalm. The guy can barely speak as it is. And hopefullly then he gets the seth treatment. The only question remains then is who....who actually beats necalli? I don't see it being ryu.
  • FengShuiEnergyFengShuiEnergy ARIA is the only answer Joined: Posts: 11,050
    Something is odd about ryu's eyes. It couldn't be the SNH since ryu isn't the type to actually let it out from something like this. Doesn't make sense. Then there's gouken sealing it away.

    But necalli may somehow be able to draw it out regardless of ryu's will. Who knows but I'm not buying it just yet.

    The SNH would have been better if only akuma had possession of it. It's basically the SF version of SS from DBZ. And the power isn't even cool either. :/

    Need more FSE, psycho power other power action.

    SnH is actually a bit more nuance than a Super Sayain power-up, although these day's they're virtually indistinguishable in terms of presentation. SnH is the original form of energy manipulation Ryu's martial art used before switching over to Gouken's "emptiness", it's not a power-up, but just another way to garner energy, albeit life threatening. SnH is access to great power at the cost of death, and it has been portrayed as unstable. Not only can it destroy the user and his opponents, but any and all natural life that can't withstand being within the vicinity of a SnH will be subject to it.
    This is usually why Akuma's portrayal is media has been foreshadowed by a sudden evacuation of the local wild life, and occasionally dying foliage.

    We don't need all 12, but it could be a good way to introduce a new weapon user out of the ones we haven't seen yet. I'd really like Santamu or Noembelu.

    If it was so "unstable" Akuma should still be having SOME difficulty with it. Even though he's mastered it. As for it's presence. Multiple have come into contact with the SNh and none so far have been affected by it. But eh, I' never been a fan of the power.

    I don't think it's the full intro. We're probably getting it for launch trailer.
  • Chun-Li_ForeverChun-Li_Forever Chun-Li Fan Forever Joined: Posts: 771
    I hope so. Hopefully they'll extend it more. There are 16 characters in the initial launch. And they only showed Ryu, Chun-LI, Ken, Cammy, Bison, F.A.N.G, Rashid, and Necali. I would expect that they would showcase everyone.

    And I bet that as we get more unlockable characters, the intro is gonna change as well.

    Well i wouldn't mind that but this game needs one character to be the boss.
    and considering that sf1 had sagat (though you could only play ryu...), sf2 had bison, sf3 gill and sf4 seth, sf5 will imo be like the previous ones... but now that i think of it, each one had a different boss... sooooo.... maybe bison is also sitting this one out like in sf4.
    which leaves who? Like i said earlier fang just doesn't work for me... and all the others don't have what it takes to be the boss except for ssj necalli and possibly evil ryu... maybe Ono is going to have us in the dark with a final secret char released at launch as the boss.
    and then he will post a video where he shows his grand master plan of deliberatly leaking the chars until now just to keep the 17th char secret while he's laughing his a$$ off...
    that would be the ultimate troll x'D

    If it was so "unstable" Akuma should still be having SOME difficulty with it. Even though he's mastered it. As for it's presence. Multiple have come into contact with the SNh and none so far have been affected by it. But eh, I' never been a fan of the power.

    It's not that Akuma should or shouldn't have difficulty using SnH at this point, it's that his use of SnH will eventually drive him towards becoming an unstable entity. Akuma is still very much human, but on the brink of becoming something that's not. He has mastered SnH in the sense he has gained tremendous powers without succumbing to the Oni, but he wants a fight where he can let loose and fully break the boundaries of his humanity. Akuma's instability is inevitable, and he will welcome it wholeheartedly if he finds someone who can draw it out in a fight.

    Also, if you're implying Ryu has difficulty using SnH, even in his "Evil" form, you'd be mistaken. It's all too easy for Ryu to use SnH because this is what his art is based on, but it is in conflict from what his master Gouken has taught him. Even if Ryu were to turn to Evil he would still be in a major conflict with himself, and this is portrayed as "madness". Akuma would have no such inner conflict, as Goutetsu encouraged the use of SnH as that was the basis of energy gathering before Gouken. Akuma would feel like he has pushed the boundaries by constantly using SnH, while Evil Ryu would just be in utter confusion, but both would still be driven by a strong urge to fight to the death.

    This is where the whole instability lies with SnH, the energy is used to kill and that's all it will drive you to do while using it. In certain media's for SF outside of the games the SnH has been portrayed as miasmal, with Akuma's presence usually effecting the nature around him to the point of killing it.

    Tradition of fighting games mostly. The way the character line up is now I wouldn't be surprised if there isn't a traditional boss character and it ends up like Alpha 2.

    I think that'd actually be a cool boss. Kinda like God Rugal in a way. A hybrid fighter utilizing moves from both, though the majority would be Necalli's moves infused with Psycho Power. I'd like to see something like that. I'd even be fine with a souped-up, Alpha 3 like Bison as the final boss in Story Mode. I always preferred Bison as a boss character.

    Actually, it would logically be the majority if Bison's moves but more powerful than we have ever seen them. Bison's consciousness should take over Necalli's body, which would cause Necalli's consciousness to either be become latent, absorbed, or permanently destroyed.

    Either way I'd like to see a modern take on the Shin Bison character.
