Villains: For me my dear, it was merely a Tuesday

   0
There are many figures in Street Fighter who deserve mention as villains. There's the deadly and narcissistic Vega, the money grubbing Balrog, power-hungry Akuma, and the absolutely sadistic Juri. But for me, the head honcho and leader of the Thailand-based terrorist organization, Shadowloo, has many facets, thanks to Street Fighter's penetration of different media and styles.


TGIT!

Despite his needless but comedic posturing in the film, he still carried a certain amount of dignity and respect that is reminiscent of a much quieter Bison from Street Fighter II. He has different hats depending on whether he's on or off-duty, he appreciates good food and wine, and he affectionately dubs his floating chair 'the saddle of the world.'

Really, there's nothing I hate about M. Bison from the classic 1994 movie.

The new villains in the world of Street Fighter and fighting games in general seem flat out boring by comparison to America's favorite dictator. Bison has the advantage of not only of being one of the first, but being represented in many more forms of media, even beyond what I've listed. There are of course comics, manga, anime, and side stories. And in many of them, Bison has been the classic villain. Super Street Fighter IV introduced new villains like Seth and Juri while Akuma is also considered a villain in some respects.

Bison arguably deserves any credit he receives because he's not just some villain. He's a classic supervillain, a dictator, a man of culture, a man of arrogance, and a man of humor. Whereas Seth may talk to his defeated opponents about how inferior they are compared to him, Bison will dust off his uniform, fix his hat, and perhaps comment how they'll enjoy the view of Bison taking over the world from down on the ground.
