Bio

The bald, hulking Sagat wears no more than an eyepatch, a pair of trunks, and tape wrapped around his knuckles and soles, and is a master of Muay Thai kickboxing. In Street Fighter, he is the last boss to be fought, right after Adon, another Muay Thai kickboxer. Sagat defended the world's strongest title from one Go Hibiki, who cost him the use of his right eye. But another challenger, Ryu, unleashed a desperate Shoryuken (Dragon Punch) on Sagat, scarring his chest and seizing the title from him.

Enraged, Sagat trained with thoughts of vengeance emanating from his scar, going so far as to make Ryu's moves his own. His high and low Tiger Shots are his version of Ryu's Hadouken, and his Tiger Uppercut mirrors the Shoryuken. He also executes a gut-clenching Tiger Knee, which can pass through projectiles. Combined with his height and long reach, Sagat is one intimidating Street Fighter.

Sagat's fighting qualities catch the attention of M. Bison, leader of the Shadoloo crime organization. He grants the former world champion the position of bodyguard and, when the second World Warrior tournament begins, a chance for a rematch with Ryu. The only rematch Sagat accepts is an honorable fight to the death...
