~ Alex

Alex (アレックス Arekkusu) is a character as well as a hero in the Street Fighter series. He first appeared in Street Fighter III: New Generation, and is the game's protagonist as well as 2nd Impact and 3rd Strike. He is voiced by Michael Sommers (New Generation and 2nd Impact), Patrick Gallagan (3rd Strike) and Hiroki Yasumoto (Tatsunoko vs. Capcom). Several years later, he appears again as one of the first wave DLC characters in Street Fighter V and voiced by Mark Whitten in English and Katsuyuki Konishi in Japanese.

Biography

Appearance

Alex is a very well-built individual with long blonde hair, and wears camouflage green overalls with the straps down, open-fingered gloves of the same color, combat boots, and a wide red bandana. He also has red marks (most likely painted on) on both of his shoulders where his overall straps should be, and red marks under his eyes (possibly face paint).

In his Capcom Fighting Evolution ending, Alex is also shown to wear camo green MMA shorts, along with what appears to be slate colored open fingered training boxing gloves.

The event that Alex and Balrog fought in shown in an arcade flier for Street Fighter III: New Generation is called the Vale Tudo Eternal Fighting (B.E.F). He is shown to wear exactly the same attire as his CFE ending, except his trunks appear to have a red stripe design down each side.

Concept

Many of Alex's character traits allude to famous professional wrestler Hulk Hogan. His fighting style can be considered as an amalgamation of Hogan's repertories during his career in both the New Japan Pro Wrestling circuit and WWF back in the 80's; in Japan, Hogan used more traditional wrestling maneuvers in the ring, while in the US, Hogan was well known for his brute force and raw power brawling.

His intro actions before a fight reference quite a few of Hogan's own introductions; both are known to rip off their shirts before engaging in the match. His most notable opening is with Hugo, as this opening references the staredown between Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant before their famous match at WrestleMania III.

Personality

Often crass and abrasive, Alex's boldness tends to land him in deep trouble; he is also prone to violent outbursts of extreme aggression, especially if the people he loves are threatened. He is also very straightforward and refuses to mince words, especially when it comes to his confidence in his abilities. Alex does have a softer side that he only shows to people he cares about and/or respects, such as Tom and his daughter Patricia.
