Here's something that's kinda interesting to me. DOA's Bass is cut from the same cloth as Hulk Hogan, right? I was flicking channels not too long ago and ended up watching a bit of his VH1 reality show, where he is over-protective of his aspiring pop star daughter. At the time I had just gone through a DC nostalgia session involving DOA, so the storyline was fresh on the mind. The Bass/Tina relationship in that game is exactly like Hogan and his daughter's. This is DOA 2 we are talking about here. Did Hulk work with Team Ninja and tell them his hopes and aspirations regarding his daughter growing up to be a "gentle lady" (Bass's words) or was this just a coincidence?
i think i could've gone through life without seeing voldo cosplay.
anyway, to answer the question: terry bogard, kibagami genjuro, and akira...who is at core a boring design, but has the most awesome moves in fighting game history. and actually he's started to look pretty cool in vf4 and vf5.
