Go's appearance could have been inspired by an illustration showing [[Sagat]] holding a man similar to Dan by the head. The man also appears in one of Sagat's intro animations in the ''[[Street Fighter Alpha series|Street Fighter Alpha]]'' series. The character in question has been speculated to be Go, but this has never been confirmed nor denied.
Originally, Go first appeared on Street Fighter Alpha during one of Sagat's intro poses, where he is seen holding a man similar to Dan, but sporting a orange gi and wooden sandals. Go's official appearance, however, is on Pocket Fighter, where he looks exactly like Dan, but wearing a green gi, with red skin, a wide double chin, and a long nose, similar to a tengu. He also has a halo over his head.

Much like Dan, this design is a parody of [[w:c:snk:SNK|SNK]] character [[w:c:snk:Mr. Karate|Mr. Karate]] and his trademark ''tengu'' mask. Mr. Karate is the alter-ego of [[w:c:snk:Takuma Sakazaki|Takuma Sakazaki]], who is the father of [[w:c:snk:Ryo Sakazaki|Ryo Sakazaki]] (the character whom Dan is designed to be a parody of).

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

BiographyEdit

AppearanceEdit

Go's appearance could have been inspired by an illustration showing Sagat holding a man similar to Dan by the head. The man also appears in one of Sagat's intro animations in the Street Fighter Alpha series. The character in question has been speculated to be Go, but this has never been confirmed nor denied.

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 alter-ego of Takuma Sakazaki, who is the father of Ryo Sakazaki (the character whom Dan is designed to be a parody of). Earlier works featured Go wearing a tengu mask, while later ones show that the long nose was indeed a feature of his face.

In the UDON comics, his facial structure is slightly based on his Pocket Fighter appearance, with a wide cleft chin and a slightly longer nose. His hairstyle is slightly similar to Dan's, but short without a ponytail.

PersonalityEdit

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.[1]

StoryEdit

BackgroundEdit

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]

Street Fighter IV seriesEdit

In Street Fighter IV, Dan has a picture of Go hanging on the wall in his dojo, but the face is obscured by a glare of sunlight on the glass.

In Super Street Fighter IV, Go's tengu mask and green gi are worn in Dan's 3rd alternate costume set, albeit with the mask off to the side of his head rather than over his face.

Other AppearancesEdit

Super Gem Fighter Mini MixEdit

Go appears in the game and is used in several of Dan's attacks and Mighty Combos; 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 父 ( oyaji?, "father") appearing on his back instead.

UDON comicsEdit

Go appears in the Street Fighter Legends: Chun-Li comic by UDON. In this continuity, a Shadaloo goon was sent to the "Hibiki Go Dojo" to collect a 10,000 Hong Kong Dollar bribery fee for Shadaloo; the Hibiki Go Dojo was in Shadaloo country, and this was the required payment. Go refused to pay the bribe, and defeated the goon convincingly in a fight.

Shadaloo head member Sagat, seeing the refusal as an personal challenge to him, came to fight against Go; during the fight, Go takes out Sagat's eye, and Sagat subsequently beat him to death.

TriviaEdit

  • The move Go used to take Sagat's eye in the UDON comics looks remarkably similar to a Dankukyaku.
  • According to his Shadaloo C.R.I. character profile, Go practices Kenkasappō Buraiken (喧嘩殺法・無頼拳? roughly "Quarrel Killing Method: Ruffian Fist"), a street fighting style based on Karate. One of his techniques is the Shoten Buraikyaku (昇天無頼脚? "Ascension Ruffian Legs") a finisher which delivers multiple powerful knee strikes straight to an opponent's face.[1]
    • The name and description of the movement indicates a parody of Takuma Sakazaki's Shōrankyaku (翔乱脚? "Soaring Turbulent Legs") from the Art of Fighting series.
