Comic 81: Introducing: Tecmo

Introducing a new character: Tecmo! Creator of Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive (under the Team Ninja brand - shown on his headband) and one of the two companies that would later merge into Koei Tecmo.

Anyway, this is based on a quote from DoA creator Tomonobu Itagaki when he was still working there and pre-merge: "Back when the original DOA came out, Namco aired a radio commercial insulting the series. As the father of DOA, I will never forget an insult to my family. I will get them back with nuclear missiles more than 100 times for that. I will never forget it." He would also list Tekken 1-5 as his "most hated games" with the reasons for 4 of them being just "hate"... So because of that, Tecmo has a huge, ridiculous grudge against Namco. If he still keeps this in his merged form... well, we'll just have to wait and see.

If only they actually HAD nukes or something! :D

Now that would have made it much more serious... Luckily, those are just empty threats for now.

Geezer here, checking in late and out of context:

DoA f***ing rules and every other fighting game ever can go to hell. New favorite character!

by Zanreo at 19th Jan 2016, 2:47 AM

Haha, I see he's quite a popular character already :D

Right! Yeah.
Not much of a fighting game fan but I prefer Tekken over DoA myself. Both are for different audiences anyway.
I like how Tekken has characters like Panda or other whacky stuff. DoA has fan service so... that counts for others :D
