Since March 30th, 2016, the CFN Portal site’s Shadaloo Activity Report–with the help of Shadaloo’s Private Nakagawa–has been bringing fans a variety of character profiles from throughout the Street Fighter universe. From chronicling nearly every single playable character in the entire series to this point, to spotlighting various non-player characters (NPCs), a large portion of the cast of Final Fight, to alternate universes like the canceled Capcom Fighting All-Stars & Street Fighter 2010, and even–most recently–the cast of the Street Fighter EX series. Back in July, the CFN Portal commemorated its first 100 profiles by detailing Ryu, the first playable member of the current Street Fighter V cast to receive one. Now the Portal hits its second milestone of 200 profiles, with a variety of characters on display in this next batch!

With Lucia and Dean rounding out profiles on the protagonists of Final Fight, we turn out attention to Mayor Mike Haggar’s beloved daughter: Jessica!

Private Nakagawa: She’s the daughter of that macho mayor. It seems that, for awhile, she formed a happy couple with Cody, who had saved her life, but…

Basic Info:

Name: Jessica
Height: 176 cm
Weight: Unknown
Blood type: A
Birthday: October, 31
Home Country: USA
Likes: Travel, Poker
Dislikes: Selfish Men

Private Nakagawa: As the mayor’s daughter, she was abducted by the criminal organization Mad Gear when the continuous efforts of her father to improve the public order proved to be too much of a nuisance for them. She was rescued by Haggar, Cody, and Guy, and became Cody’s lover. However, when Cody was imprisoned for his numerous acts of violence she estranged herself, and ultimately broke up with him. We heard she’s currently studying in France.

Next up, we move on to Dee Jay’s good friend and manager, who’s existed as a concept since the Street Fighter II days, but is finally making his first appearance: Rick!

Private Nakagawa: He certainly exudes the same mood as him. He’s actually a good friend of Dee Jay, and joins him on tour. It seems he’s his manager.

Basic Info:

Name: Rick
Height: 179 cm
Weight: 77 kg
Blood type: A
Birthday: January, 9
Home Country: Jamaica
Likes: Music, Showy Birds
Dislikes: Alcohol (he can’t take it)

Private Nakagawa: He has parrot chicks on top of his head. All chicks of Rick’s own pet. While Dee Jay tends to abuse him, he supports his friend in various activities. He is particularly able to play the djembe, a type of drum played with clapping and striking, between his legs. It seems he once practiced it until it gave him bloody urine.

Our next profiles take us back to Final Fight. But with all of the heroes and the bosses of Final Fight 1 covered, it’s time to move on to some of the first game’s “generic” members of the Mad Gear Gang, starting with J!

Private Nakagawa: Finally, a fighter who gives off the same smell of our lower rank soldiers. Even his name is cool: a simple letter!

Basic Info:

Name: J
Height: 181 cm
Weight: 78 kg
Blood type: B
Birthday: January, 9
Home Country: UK
Likes: Health Foods, Punk
Dislikes: Meat

Private Nakagawa: He’s an extremely introverted personality. But when it comes to fighting, he makes his opponents suffer with his quick steps and razor-like jabs. It’s almost impossible to escape his punch combos. After Mad Gear’s destruction, it seems he’s hanging out with Abigail and Axl. In contrast with his appearance, he’s a health freak and drinks only decaf.

Now we feature his partner/”head swap,” who bears an uncanny resemblance to a “forgotten” classic Capcom character: TWO.P!

Private Nakagawa: If you think of an orange Mohawk, that’s him. The green dragon print on his back is cool, don’t you think? You can write his name as TWO-P or TWO P, too.

Basic Info:

Name: TWO.P
Height: 183 cm
Weight: 82 kg
Blood type: B
Birthday: He forgot
Home Country: USA?
Likes: Green Salad, Dark Places
Dislikes: Steel Pipe, Lizards, Earthworms

Private Nakagawa: He was rescued by a Mad Gear member who found him collapsed half-naked in the street. It seems he lost his memory, so he doesn’t remember details such as his birthday. Also, it seems he’s good with heavy weapons [direct reference to Forgotten Worlds, whence his name came]. He has a sense of humor, and speaks mixing jokes in his sentences. His favorite phrase is “Yeah, me too, man!” [player 2’s quote in Forgotten Worlds’ ending]

Finally, we close things by bringing you to the 200th Profile: Phantom Bison!

Private Nakgawa: And we’ve reached 200 profiles! I didn’t think we’d ever continue this long. Obviously, for this milestone, we have to do Lord Bison! Aaah! His body is transparent! Lord Bison, are you alright?

Basic Info:

Name: Phantom Bison
Height: Roughly 182 cm
Weight: Unknown
Blood type: Unknown
Birthday: Unknown
Home Country: Unknown
Likes: World Domination
Dislikes: Weaklings, Incompetent Subordinates

Private Nakagawa: So, due to a certain accident, Lord Bison had his body turned to pure thought. Even with his body destroyed, his power and will won’t disappear. If you want to know why he became like this, try the General Story Mode.
But even in that state,

…that never changes, I’m in awe! So cool!

A member of the community also created a special piece of fan art for the occasion, which depicts some of the more notable and obscure characters that have been profiled by the CFN Portal, including Nadeshiko, who was the very first entry, Enero, the leader of the Shadaloo Dolls, Fair Libra from the Judgment Girls, holding a sign of Private Nakagawa, Ruby, Goutetsu, Skullomania, Blade, and Sodom, the first playable character to be profiled. The artwork also features one of the “Extra” characters, Capcom Fighting All-Stars’ Ingrid, as well as her evil counterpart, Dark Ingrid.

That does it for the latest group of CFN profiles, as the Shadaloo Activity Report now looks to embark on the road to 300! Do you have any fond memories of smacking around J and TWO.P in the original Final Fight? Did you recognize him from playing Forgotten Worlds back in the day? What do you think about finally meeting Dee Jay’s manager after all these years? Do you have any thoughts on Phantom Bison’s “predicament”?
