In Dan's Flash Combos, we get to see his music appreciation side, as well as his love for his deceased father. His Upper Combo is a close immitation of Ken and Ryu's Upper Combo, and is the only Flash Combo to repeat an attack twice. Dan's Oyaji Combo shows that his dedication to his father's memory is so great, that he has actually incorporated his father's body into his Saikyo Groove attack style. Dan's tengu-masked father (a humorous reference to Takuma Sakazaki from Art of Fighting) also appears in two of his Super Combos. The Enka Combo shows Dan's unfortunate enjoyment of the often sad styling of 20th century Japanese folk music. And last, but not least, Dan pays homage to his favorite artist, "the King" Elvis Presley, in his Elvis Combo. It should be noted that Dan's weakness from Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo has followed him to Pocket Fighter: Just as Dan can only send red gems to his opponent in Puzzle Fighter, Dan's attack only evoke red gems from his opponents in Pocket Fighter.
Dan enters the ruckus to promote his "awesome" fighting style, the Saikyo-ryuu. To do this, he handpicks Sakura as his first student; but, due to her obsession with Ryu and reluctance to follow the way of Saikyo, Dan sees no choice but to beat some convincement out of her.
