Explore the world of Street Fighter V through this side-story about Bison’s venomous right-hand man…
To flesh out the world surrounding the events of Street Fighter V, the Capcom Fighters Network website has occasionally featured “The Side Readers”: short-stories that delve into untold aspects of the characters, outside of the game’s main narrative. CFN expanded on this series recently by adding Side readers 05: Toxicity, which follows F.A.N.G after the fall of his chosen master, M. Bison. Here’s an excerpt:
Bison sought to rule the world using his violence. Finally, F.A.N.G had found what he was looking for – Bison’s ambition. F.A.N.G left his organization and joined Shadaloo, devoted his everything to Lord Bison, and dedicated his efforts towards realizing Bison’s ambitions. F.A.N.G became Bison’s right hand man, and one of the Shadaloo Four Kings.
However, Shadaloo was destroyed.
Bison fell, and with him, his ambitions vanished.
With his leader gone, the emptiness in F.A.N.G’s life returned.
However, F.A.N.G wasn’t entirely convinced that Lord Bison was truly dead. Hoping to revive Shadaloo, F.A.N.G visited dark companies he’d had dealings with in the past, hoping to gain resources. He had once controlled these companies through power, but now a different approach was needed – to sit down and have a talk over drinks.
F.A.N.G had finished in one such meeting. Though the drinks flowed freely, F.A.N.G was unaffected. As a side effect of his unparalleled resistance to poison, there was no amount of alcohol in the world that could influence F.A.N.G in any way…
