Dan and his characteristics
I love Dan because is a CRAZY hidden character. He's FUN in all the things he 
do. He is weak, ok, but with some advanced techniques, you can manage him very 
well and beat your opponent with facility. He is weak because all his moves 
release Red Gems who charge up the Gadoken Special Move, a very short 
projectile not very useful. I repeat it another time: DAN IS FUN! You have to 
take him!
Basic Moves
Here are Dan's Basic Moves (learn!):
Forward: Walk Forward
Back: Walk Back
Down: Crouch
Up: Jump
Forward, Forward: Dash
Back, Back: Jump Away
Down, Up: Super Jump
Punch: Normal Punch
Down\Forward + Punch: Oyaji Uppercut
Forward, Forward + Punch: Dashing Body Slam
Kick: Normal Kick
Down\Forward + Kick: Sweep
Forward, Forward + Kick: Dashing Knee Hit
Comments: Forward (X2) + Punch is very fun. First, he jump on you. If it 
connects, he continue rolling forward and he taunts the opponent. If it 
doesn't connect, he fall back and he lie on the ground for 2 seconds. Also the 
uppecut is fun.
Special Moves
Here you are the Special Moves, they ROCK! :
- Gadoken: D, DF, F + Punch
It's a normal fireball, but it's not a projectile. Weak but cool. It has got 
Red Gems and it's very easy to charges up!!!!!!!
At Level 1: Tiny Size
At Level 2: Small Size
At Level 3: Big Size
- Koryuken: F, D, DF + Punch
A Shoryuken-like Move. It has Yellow Gems and it's hard to charge up!
At Level 1: Short Uppercut 
At Level 2: Medium Uppercut
At Level 3: High Uppercut
- Danu-Kyaku: D, DB, B + Kick 
It's a Robert Garcia-like Flying Kick. It's the most spectacural and useful 
move of Dan. It has got Blue Gems and it's hard to charge. 
At Level 1: 2 Hit Rush
At Level 2: 3 Hit Rush
At Level 3: 2 Hit Rush plus a final Koryuken (3 Hit Rush)
Comments: The Gadoken is weak but if it connects, it makes fly the opponent 
far away... It's powerful! The Danu-Kyaku it's cool and very spectacular, and 
at the Level 3 it's pretty fantastic. Super Dan!!!!
Super Moves:
Dan's good and freak Super Moves, check these out:
- Shinku Gadoken: D, DF, F + Super
It's a more powerful version of the basic Gadoken
- Shinku Koryuken: F, D, DF + Super
It's a 7 Hit Rush more powerful version of the basic Koryuken
- Father Nose Blast: B, DB, D, DF, F + Super
A Dan-like monster appear and makes Energy Blast from his nose (???). 
- Father Raging Demon: F, DF, D, DB, B + Super
The Dan-like monster appear and attacks the opponent (it's unblockable and it 
costs 3 Level of Energy!). If it connects, the screen comes white, multiple 
Comments: The Shinku Gadoken is a sucks Super Move. Shinku Koryuken it’s 
a good move, Father Nose Blast too (but it's not as fast as the 
Tabasa's Robot Blast). Now a special notation for the Father Raging 
Demon: it release a lot of BIG gems and I consider it "The Ultimate Move". 
Pretty Cool!
Here are the Dan’s throws. Funny, hehe:
PK: Normal Throw
Jump + PK: Air Throw
F, DF, D, DB, B + PK: Overleap Throw
B, BD, D, DF, F + PK: Sing a Song Throw (let’s stone the opponent!)
Comments: Any.
Dan can Taunt all the time, whatever he want. He can do it VERY WELL:
T: Normal Taunt (Oyajiiii!)
D + T: Crouching Taunt (Ya!)
Jump + Taunt: Air Taunt (Yahoo!)
B, BD, D, DF, F (x2) + Taunt: SUPER TAUNT!!!
Comments: Dan is a pretty fun taunter! I love especially the Crouching Taunt, 
it’s good and symphatic. Even the SUPPA TAUNT is good: he make a lot of 
stranges poses!
Flash Combo
This is ALL the Dan’s Flash Combo with the explanation:
P, P, P, P: Punch, Jab, Jab, Oyaji Uppercut (it release a box!)
P, P, K, P: Punch, Jab, Megaphone Attack, Oyaji Uppercut (it release a box!)
P, K, P, K: Punch, Elvis Punch, Karaoke Punch, Sing a Song Throw
P, K, K, K: Punch, Elvis Punch, Elvis Kick, Sing a Song Throw

P, K, P, P: Punch, Elvis Punch, Karaoke Punch, Ax Attack
P, K, K, P: Punch, Elvis Punch, Elvis Kick, Ax Attack
Comments: This combo are pretty good, but I think that I have confused a 
little bit the Flash Combo who release a box (I'm sorry. Sigh!)
Dan, like the other Pocket Fighter Characters, haven’t any kind of 
combat strategie, so, I dunno what can I write. Oh yes, I can write that 
I'm stupid!
Comments: I'm stupid
