Go appears in Pocket Fighter as a cameo in several of Dan's attacks. His appearance is similar to Dan's; however, he has a green karate gi, red skin, a halo (due to being dead) and a very long nose. Several of Dan's [[Mighty Combos]] involve Go; one has Dan swinging him like a hammer, using his nose as the handle, while another has Go launching a freezing energy beam from his nose. Go even uses [[Akuma]]'s [[Shun Goku Satsu]], with the kanji of "father" (父) appearing on his back instead.

*Although the move Go Hibiki used to take Sagat's eye looks remarkably similar to a [[Dankukyaku]], the dojo's name and introduction in the comic indicate the Saikyō style of karate did not yet exist, at the least not as it is currently known.

Biography

Appearance

Originally, Go first appeared in the Street Fighter Alpha series during one of Sagat's intro animations; the Muay Thai master is seen holding a man similar to Dan, but sporting a orange gi and wooden sandals.

In Super Gem Fighter Mini Mix]], Go remains somewhat similar in appearance to Dan, though he sports a green gi and a halo over his head. He also has more of a tengu-like appearance, with red skin, a wide double chin, and a long nose. Much like Dan, this design is a parody of SNK character Mr. Karate and his trademark tengu mask. Mr. Karate is the father of Ryo Sakazaki, whom Dan is designed to parody.

In the UDON comics, Go's appearance is closer to his Street Fighter Alpha cameo; his facial features are similar to those of Tekken character Heihachi Mishima. His hairstyle is slightly similar to Dan's, but short without a ponytail; his facial structure is slightly based on his Pocket Fighter appearance, with a wide double chin and a slightly longer nose.
