Press the Buttons has posted an article regarding the recurring character archetypes found in fighting games. They list the Japanese warrior, big-breasted women, etc etc…oh, they forgot to list synchronized swimmers. Anyways, one not commonly found are evil and corrupt politicians. Flashback to the time of the Sega-CD when video games were under attack for violence and all that stuff kids love. The Sega-CD had a game called, Eternal Champions: Challenge From The Dark Side, featuring a man with powers…POLITICAL POWERS!! Like Press the Buttons, I have no doubt this guy was inserted into the game in protest to the politicians of the time. Here is the Senator’s profile:
Fighting Style: Dishonesty; Using deceit and lies the senator can deliver a wide variety of underhanded moves. He can also abuse and misuse the political powers that were given to him. The most dangerous weapon he has is a total lack of morals.
Biography: The Senator made a living by voting the ways of special interest groups and creating issues to make himself popular. Given his lifetime membership in the good-old-boys club, he was surprised when he wasn’t supported by his party for re-election. It seems that he once voted for a Human rights issue and his party was angry that humanity was considered above their personal profits. When he lost in a landslide election after spending millions of his own money, he died of a massive heart attack.
Goal: If the Senator was to recover from his bad case of death by winning the contest, he would attempt to came back and make up for his years of civil abuse, maybe.
You know, he reminds more of his sexy excellency, Emperor Palpatine...
