Jackson entered the fighting game world about 1 year before Tony Umeda...
coincidence? Probably not, actually. Tekken 3 was a hugely successful
game in arcades and on PS1, so Tony definitely seemed like a
"potential" rip-off at the time. Even so, he was a comical secret
character in Bushido Blade 2 and definitely spiced up the roster...
especially since he doesn't really fit in. lol. From what I remember, he had a few
unique mannerisms... but not many.
