Deku was the only original character created for Fighters Megamix. Deku is a comical Mexican green bean in a hat. When his hat is knocked off, a bird is under it, perched on his head. If you win a match with it knocked off, the bird squawks during Deku's win pose. For his alternate costume, the Sega Saturn logo is on his head instead, which makes a strange vibrating noise if Deku wins a bout with his hat knocked off. (the sound is actually taken from Sonic the Fighters; the noise is heard after the end credits as Eggman is seen hovering in his ship, Metal Sonic by his side-it's SE No.30 on the game's sound test in Sonic Gems Collection)

Deku is probably the biggest WTF character in Sega fighting game history... and also borderline racist? I don't think Sega meant any harm, but still. A mexican green bean in a sombrero is very 90's cartoon character. Deku is a funny reminder of some of the things games, movies, and TV used to get away with in the 90's. lol. On the other hand, if you're "offended" by Deku, you should probably find some better things to do. Who really cares... this character went nowhere.

I wonder if Deku has any relation to Amingo.... Green bean + sombrero... Cactus + sombrero... same thing? Probably not, but if the two ever appeared in a crossover game together, I'd be pretty entertained. All things considered, this character design was pretty lame, even as a joke... yet still somehow strangely funny as a character in a Sega fighting game (games that are known to have characters with pretty "stiff" personalities). Thankfully, comic relief characters in fighting games got much better than Deku in the future. Also, sorry about you're animation's page, Deku. Janet didn't need to do you like that.
