Click here for more information about Dee Jay's other fighting game appearances.

Dee Jay was one of the four new warriors introduced in Super Street Fighter II. He was added to SFA3 in the Sega Dreamcast version (which was subsequently released in the arcades as Street Fighter Zero 3 Upper) with little additional details about his life. Known as "The Southern Comet", Dee Jay is a cheerful kickboxer who fights to musical rhythm. Eventually, he becomes a music star, though he still has time to enter the second World Warrior tournament to find some new rhythm for his songs.

Dee Jay's cheerfulness has him smiling constantly and he has a thumbs-up gesture. He wears orange loose drawstring pants with yellowish-white lettering that reads "MAXIMUM" and orange sparring gloves. His hairstyle is a braided mohawk with a letter "M" on each side of his head which stands for "MAXIMUM." Dee Jay is also seen in the anime movie and some art to be wearing a Caribbean chain necklace.

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 Billy Blanks. Dee Jay's braided mohawk also resembles Blanks's role as Khan in The King of the Kickboxers. Dee Jay is one of the few Street Fighter characters not to be directly associated with or tied in to the official storyline. Dee Jay is the only Caribbean fighter in the Street Fighter series. His pre-fight intro with Fei Long in Street Fighter Alpha 3 MAX suggest that they might know each other on a personal basis.
