Gouken, the trainer and “master” of the popular Ryu and Ken characters from the Street Fighter series.

He was mentioned in games and comics before but the first time he appeared in a game and was playable too was as a unlockable character in Street Fighter IV.

His design is pretty cool for being a very aged old man and while he shares some visual designs with Akuma he is pretty unique in general.

I look forward to see this gallery growing and him being in the next Street Fighter games!
