==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 ''[[Pocket Fighter]]'', 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 [[wikipedia:Tengu|tengu]]-like appearance, with red skin, a wide double chin, and a long nose. Much like Dan, this design is a parody of [[SNK Playmore|SNK]] character [[w:c:snk:Mr. Karate|Mr. Karate]] and his trademark ''tengu'' mask. Mr. Karate is the father of [[w:c:snk:Ryo Sakazaki|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 ''[[w:c:tekken:Tekken (series)|Tekken]]'' character [[w:c:tekken:Heihachi Mishima|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 cleft chin and a slightly longer nose.
  +
  +
==Personality==
  +
From what is gathered from the UDON comics, Go had a very stoic and brave personality, to the point in which he would never let injustices occur around his presence. Dan almost blindly looks up to his father because of these qualities and is always constantly following the advice he gives to him, including after his death.
  +
  +
His ''[[Street Fighter V]]'' profile describes him as a "friendly old geezer" who enjoys drinking and sleeping.
  +
  +
==Story==
  +
The details of Go's life are not explained in detail during the games' storyline; what is known is that Go died while trying to defend himself against [[Sagat]] after having taken out his right eye, prompting his son, Dan, to seek revenge against the then-[[Shadaloo]] agent.

[[Sagat]] came to avenge his defeated comrade, and fought Go; during the fight, Go takes out Sagat's eye, and Sagat subsequently beat him to death.

Go Hibiki (火引 強 Hibiki Gō?) is a character in the Street Fighter series, and the father of Dan Hibiki.

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 Pocket Fighter, 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 cleft chin and a slightly longer nose.

Personality

From what is gathered from the UDON comics, Go had a very stoic and brave personality, to the point in which he would never let injustices occur around his presence. Dan almost blindly looks up to his father because of these qualities and is always constantly following the advice he gives to him, including after his death.

His Street Fighter V profile describes him as a "friendly old geezer" who enjoys drinking and sleeping.

Story

The details of Go's life are not explained in detail during the games' storyline; what is known is that Go died while trying to defend himself against Sagat after having taken out his right eye, prompting his son, Dan, to seek revenge against the then-Shadaloo agent.

It is rumored that his nose became red and big like a tengu's due to being hit on the face multiple times.[1]
