Gon is the first "guest character" in a fighting game... and definitely one of the most memorable. Gon was a hilarious, memorable, and unexpected secret character to appear only in the console (PS1) version of TEKKEN 3. This litttle random dino introduced some of the most hilarious attacks ever seen in a fighting game... including an epic fart attack. Gon's comical moveset and playstyle was especially interesting in a 3D, martial arts-based fighting game. He actually had a unique playstyle. Also worth mentioning, Gon's brilliant "Loop" FMV ending was the perfect icing on the cake for this guest character. Gon's T3 ending is one of the best fighting game endings of all time, easily.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who misses Gon a little... but then again, Gon doesn't really "belong" in TEKKEN. In the modern era of TEKKEN, I can't see him fitting in with the rest of the cast (without being annoying to fight against). He would likely throw off game balance and break the game. On a side note, I wonder if Gon is at all related to Hauser... those stubby arms look familiar.
