Sagat, the Emperor of the Muay Thai boxing world, is the national hero of Thailand. He has defeated many opponents who sought his title, including Dan Hibiki's father, but no fight has left as strong an impression as his first encounter with Ryu. After a shocking defeat, Sagat was left with a wound that still burns though his chest to this day. The pain and hatred that followed his loss lead Sagat to briefly join M. Bison's criminal organization. He left after realizing Bison's devious plans and returned to Thailand to train his body and mind in hopes of a true rematch with Ryu.
Sagat's towering form is a large asset, granting him long-reaching attacks. His punishing kicks and knees are impressive to watch, but they should be avoided at all cost.
