Doctrine Dark is one of the Street Fighter EX series characters and made his debut in 1996 as one of the completely new characters in Street Fighter EX.

He served under the orders of Guile and was confronted by Rolento together with his troops. This battle left both emotional and physical wounds on the soldier who was once known as Holger. He fled from the hospital and when he returned to the surface he became Doctrine Dark who is not able to breath normally anymore.

Doctrine is probably very inspired by the Mortal Kombat characters Scorpion, Kabal and Baraka. His special moves are very similar to Scorpion’s, he also uses a blade attached to his arms similar to Baraka’s.

Doctrine Dark made Guile responsible for his losses and wants to confront and kill him during the events of Street Fighter EX. 

Doctrine Dark is a playable character in all three Street Fighter EX games and also returned in Fighting EX Layer in 2017 as one of the last revealed characters shown for the game before it launched.

In Ultra Street Fighter 4, Guile got a dlc costume that seems to be based on Doctrine Dark actually.

Back in December 2011 we organized a very big Art Tribute for the 25th Anniversary of the Street Fighter series.

And while Doctrine Dark and the SFEX games are not developed by Capcom and therefore, not counted “canon” we included D.Dark and everyone else from the Street Fighter EX games in our project.
