The first "guest character" in a fighting game... Gon was a hilarious, memorable, and unexpected secret character to appear in the console version of Tekken 3. Gon introduced some of the most hilarious attacks ever seen in a fighting game to date... including an epic fart attack. Gon's comical moveset and playstyle was especially interesting in a 3D, martial arts-based fighting game like Tekken. Worth mentioning, Gon's awesome "loop" Tekken 3 FMV ending was also equally hilarious and actually quite brilliant! One of the best endings of all time, for sure

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 newer era of Tekken, I just can't see him fitting in with the cast at all. In Tekken 3, he was a bit annoying to fight against (being so laughably small) and would likely throw off game balance pretty significantly. On a side note, I wonder if Gon is at all related to Hauser... those stubby arms look familiar.
