Honda is one of the playable characters in the Street Fighter series by Capcom. He debuted in Street Fighter II (1991) representing the Japanese Sumo Wrestling sport and returned in all updates of the game and Street Fighter: The Movie (1995) as well as in Street Fighter Alpha III (1998) and Street Fighter IV (2008).

E.Honda was the last of the classic Street Fighter II characters that would return in Street Fighter V (2016). He was released as a dlc character alongside Lucia and Poinon in August 2019 for the game.

E.Honda drawn for the Game-Art-HQ Video Game Character Database 

E.Honda was a really cool character back when he debuted in Street Fighter II as the first playable Sumo Wrestling character in a worldwide released video game. I remember how he became one of my favourite Street Fighter characters back in around 1993 because Yokuzuna was such a badass “monster” in the World Wrestling Federation who defeated guys like Hulk Hogan and even the Undertaker.  His funny special moves like the “Hundred Hand Slap” and especially his Sumo Headbutt made him a very capable character. I did not like how Capcom changed him more into a joke character in Street Fighter IV though. 

E.Honda is one of the two characters that were contributed by Mortalshinobi who is a part of Game-Art-HQ since we started back in 2011 already. It was great to see him participating in our DB Project with Honda and Cyclops from Marvel but what I liked the most was that he made a rather serious illustration of this guy. The face kinda reminds me at the painting seen in Honda’s classic Street Fighter II stage!
