Fei-Long

}} is a video game character from Capcoms Street Fighter fighting game series.

Appearances

Fei-Long made his first appearance in Super Street Fighter II as one of the four new characters introduced in the game. Fei-Long is depicted as an action film star from Hong Kong who enters the World Warrior tournament to test his skill as a martial artist. In his ending in the game, he gives up his film career to become a more dedicated fighter instead.

Fei-Long was designed as a pastiche of real-life martial artist and movie star Bruce Lee. The English localization of the original arcade game pays tribute to Bruce Lee by having Fei-Long state "there could never be another legend like the great one and his son", a reference to Bruce Lee and his son Brandon, who died shortly before the release of the game, although these references were removed in the revised localization of the Game Boy Advance version of the game.

Fei-Long reappears in the console versions of Street Fighter Alpha 3 (). The game takes place before Fei-Long achieved fame as a movie star, as he makes his first hit movie in his ending in the game. He is set to return as a playable character in the console versions of Street Fighter IV.

As a non-playable character, Fei-Long appears as a spectator in Dans stage in Street Fighter Alpha 2 and in Felicias ending in Super Gem Fighter: Mini-Mix.

In other media

  • In Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie, Fei-Long appears as an opponent who challenges Ryu to a match while taking a break from filming his new movie. He was voiced by real-life martial artist Masakatsu Funaki in Japanese and voice actor Philip Williams in the English.
  • He is the only character from Super Street Fighter II who was not featured in the 1994 live-action Street Fighter film. An original character named Captain Sawada replaced him in the film, as well as in Street Fighter: The Movie, the video game based on the film. An actor dressed as Fei-Long appears as a chained prisoner in the background of the "Dungeon" stage during a Cammy vs. Chun-Li match.
  • In the anime series Street Fighter II V, Fei-Long is portrayed as martial artist and movie star who is a childhood acquaintance of Chun-Li, having been trained by her father, Inspector Dorai. He ends up fighting against Ken, who poses as a stunt actor during the filming of a new movie, and the two become friendly acquaintances along with Ryu. He later ends up having to protect his injured master from a misguided Cammy.

Promotion and reception

IGN ranked Fei-Long at number nineteen in their "Top 25 Street Fighter Characters" article, stating "If there's any martial arts star who deserves a videogame homage, though, Bruce Lee is probably the one. Fei Long helped begin a long...string of characters inspired by the kung fu icon...".

References

: In SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighters Clash, his name appears misspelled as 'Fei-Ling'. This a misspelling in the English version, rather than Engrish as the Japanese version does read 'Fei Long'.
