Hakushon Daimao (also known as The Genie Family) is an old comedy anime made by Tatsunoko Productions. The series ran from October 5th, 1969, to September 27th 1970, and had 52 episodes in all. Hakushon Daimao made his fighting game debut in the Japanese version of Tatsunoko VS Capcom. Due to licensing issues, Hakushon Daimao didn't appear in Tatsunoko VS Capcom: Ultimate All Stars.

As the story goes: An old bottle has found it's way to a modern family. A Genie and his daughter, Akubi reside inside the bottle. It is owned by a child named Kan. What he is unaware of when he finds the bottle is that whenever anyone sneezes, the Genie is brought out and must grant the wishes of whoever sneezed. Whenever anyone yawns, his daughter must do likewise. Getting these wishes granted may not be a good thing though, the Genie is extremely clumsy and usually bungles whatever wish he grants. Akubi is mischievous and likes to twist the words of anyone's wishes so that something bad usually comes of it. All of this results in hilarious adventures for the poor family who owns the bottle!

This guy brings the LOLS to Tatsunoko VS Capcom... Sadly, he only appeared in the Japanese version of the game (which I own). Daimao turned out better in the game than I originally thought he would. He's a hilarious character to watch in action, and his facial expressions during gameplay are priceless. Visually, he doesn't really fit in so much with the rest of the roster, but for some reason I'm glad he's in the game. I was disappointed to see him taken out of Tatsunoko VS Capcom: Ultimate All Stars. :(
