I thought Johnny Cage was suppose to be a Homages to Jean Claude Van Damme

"His Legend Lives On."

Oh hey Johnny, what're you doing here?

Hon Fu - Fatal Fury, he has 2, 4, 5, 6, & 9. Although he doesn't have shirtless, he does have a low cut tank top that shows off his chest. Oh & the dragons are in some of his move names.

Finally, got him added. Thanks for that.

Johnny Cage was actually based off Van Damme in Bloodsport
The4thSnake's avatar
He was, but they've added a lot of Bruce Lee-isms since.

Any plans to add Blaziken in?

How does it qualify?

Hitmonchan works better

I meant Hitmonlee
I think Johnny Cage would actually be a "Jean-Claude Van Damme" homage
The4thSnake's avatar
He is, but with elements of Bruce Lee.

Forest Law did/does have a Game of Death costume, without sleeves, but it's still skintight/yellow n black.……
The4thSnake's avatar
Thanks for the tip.

How about Rock Lee?
The4thSnake's avatar
He didn't originate in a game, so he doesn't really qualify.

As much as I think Chie Satonaka should be in this list, I am also against my idea since:

1. She's a girl
2. She rarely wears the yellow track suit
3. She mostly/only uses kicks despite being a fan of kung-fu
4. Since she's a girl, she can't be shirtless
5. She doesn't use nunchakus either.

As for Jam Kuradoberi, she deffo has some similarities to Chie as to why she should not be in this pic. Obvious difference? Her hair length.

I like it. Though slightly surprised Johnny Cage was on this list (considering he's a karate fighter first and foremost), but I ain't exactly complaining.

Good work.
