Rufus
 

BIO:

The self-proclaimed number one fighter in the U.S., Rufus uses his own homegrown style of kung-fu. He is obsessed with Ken Masters, whom he considers his rival. He is on a mission to prove that he is stronger than Ken, though, on his journey he frequently mistakes many other fighters for Ken. Rufus is often seen riding his motorcycle with his girlfriend, Candy, who seems to adore him and agree with his beliefs. Rufus is a loud-mouth and tends to ramble continuously until someone cuts him off.

What an awkward and weird looking character... Hmm, he fits right in with the original Street Fighter 2 cast doesn't he? ;D I would think it's a bit early for a Bob inspired character, so it probably was a coincidence that both companies came out with an agile, high-kicking fat guy around the same time... but you never really know with Capcom & Namco. ;) In any case, Bob from Tekken did come first.

Of course, my first impression of Rufus was "WTF!?" just like everyone else's, but Rufus actually came through as an entertaining Street Fighter character. He has completely ridiculous yet entertaining fighting style, and he's pretty damn hilarious to watch... epic belly-jiggle physics. XD His SF4 story mode cut scenes also can't be missed, and are possibly my favorite in the game. lol. Call me crazy, but I'm actually glad to see Rufus appear in SFXT. He'll be solid comic relief as usual. ;)
