After chronicling the History and Evolution of Cammy, Xuses returns to take a look at both Crimson Viper and Sagat, two characters that could be likely candidates for future Seasons of Street Fighter V.

Starting with Viper, he spotlights a handful of the most notable players who brought the CIA agent into battle throughout the lifespans of Street Fighter IV and Marvel vs. Capcom 3, such as Wolfkrone, Latif, MF|Tonpy, BT|Marlinpie, and Unkn0wn doing what they do best against the likes of┬áRB|Luffy, Chris Hu, Secret|Poongko, RZR|Xian, BST|Daigo Umehara, Kawaguuchi, RDK, and AlukardNY. He closes with a look at Viper’s three appearances in the SFV Prologues of M. Bison, Juri, and Urien, perhaps laying the groundwork for a Season 2 appearance? You can catch the video below.

Moving on to Sagat, who has a much deeper Street Fighter history, Xuses begins by showing him playable in the original Street Fighter (via hacks) before moving on to a showcase of his proper playable debut in 1992’s Street Fighter II: Champion Edition. He also looks at his trio of appearances in the Alpha series, as well as 1995’s Street Fighter: The Movie, Street Fighter EX2 Plus and EX3, as well as his involvement in the Vs. series via Capcom vs. SNK and CvS2, and SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom. Finally, he moves on to the Emperor of Muay Thai’s more recent appearances, such as Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix in 2008, a rare non-fighting game appearance as a Boss Character in Street Fighter X Mega Man Version 2.0, and of course, Street Fighter IV and Street Fighter X Tekken. Like with Viper, Xuses ends the video with a clip from Rashid’s Street Fighter V Prologue, where the Turbulent Wind discovers, through the Street Fighter universe’s version of Twitter, (the Capcom Fighters Network?) where the King may be residing these days, as Abel says that he “Found Sagat, former member of the Shadaloo Kings. What’s he doing here deep in the mountains…” You can see his video below.
