Dee Jay is a supporting character in the Street Fighter series.
Dee Jay is the only character in the series to be designed by Capcom USA. He was designed by James Goddard, who modeled Dee Jay after martial arts film star and Tae Bo creator, Billy Blanks. Dee Jay's braided mohawk also resembles Blanks's role as Khan in The King of the Kickboxers. He is a Jamaican Kickboxer as well as a break dancer and recording artist.
Dee Jay is a Jamaican kickboxer who fights with musical rhythm and is known as the "Southern Comet". During the events of Street Fighter Alpha 3, he anonymously challenged and defeated Adon, who uses rival kickboxing style Muay Thai. After defeating him, Dee Jay set his sights on The God of Muay Thai, Sagat. Sagat, now a Shadaloo enforcer for M. Bison, didn't take the cheerful Jamaican seriously. Dee Jay managed to defeat Sagat, adding to Sagat's losing streak at the time. After Dee Jay's victory over Sagat, M. Bison took an interest in him and offered him a position in Shadaloo, but Dee Jay refused. After the tournament, Dee Jay returned to Jamaica and created some new music that was inspired from his earlier battles. His new tunes caught the ear of a record producer, who eventually offered Dee Jay a record deal.
By the time of Super Street Fighter II, Dee Jay was a music sensation. He entered the second World Warrior tournament to find some new rhythm for his next album. How far he got in tournament is unknown, but he did find the rhythm he was looking for and his new record was a smash hit. In Street Fighter IV, Dee Jay was feeling restless, so he took a break from music to test his fighting abilities by participating in S.I.N.'s tournament. During the tournament, Dee Jay met Rufus, whom he found to have interesting "rhythm" in his voice and belly. He didn't do much else during the tournament, but he was seen fighting one of the Seth dolls.
Dee Jay has a large, muscular physique. He wears orange loose drawstring pants with black sides and yellowish-white lettering that reads "MAXIMUM" and orange sparring gloves. His hairstyle is a braided mohawk, with a letter "M" cut on each side of his head. Dee Jay is also seen in the anime movie and some artwork with a Caribbean chain necklace.
Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie
Dee Jay plays a minor role in Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie. Here, he beats up a few punks causing trouble at a nightclub before being warned by Guile and Chun-Li that he is being monitored by Shadaloo, which he does not believe until Chun-Li destroys one of their cyborgs in front of him.
Dee Jay also appeared in the Street Fighter 1995 cartoon but his role is minimal. He serves as the team's helicopter pilot. Likewise, he is a friendly and capable fighter (and he isn't seen using computers). Yet, in "Demon Island", he is shown to be quite easily angered (a trait that fits more with Balrog) and he also seems to have his own gym in the episode.
Super Smash Bros.
Dee Jay's stage them A and B appears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as soundtracks, he also appears as a novice-ranked primary grab-type spirit. His spirit battle is a stamina battle against four Diddy Kong who favors side specials on the frisbee dog park portion of Wuhu Island with reduced jump powers.
