D.D. is known as "The Crimson Thunder". His full name is Daisuke Dejima. He is a man who, through the intervention of a secret organization, had his dormant cells awakened and became a "Code Holder". He's a strike-based power fighter. He envelops his attacks with deep crimson thunder to destroy all manner of things. To stop the great catastrophe afflicting Metro City, he went there together with his companions. To be honest, one of the subtitles in the game said "Daisuke Dejima, right in the nick of time!"

His special moves all moved him forward, and you could connect his special attacks together. He's got very heavy rushdown, but is weak to dramatic counters because of it. He's most powerful in a straightforward battle.

His design and fighting style seem to be partly inspired by the Mishima's of the Tekken franchise. One of D.D.'s signature punches even closely resembles the Electric Wind God Fist. Seemingly due to his gloves, he is also able to electrocute foes with punches (similar to C. Viper).

I'll never forget this character. I remember when Capcom revealed the CFAS roster... and I was already thinking D.D. was "new main material". He had a sidestep technique and an EWGF like a Mishima. Welcome to TEKKEN, 2D Street Fighter kids. Unfortunately, CFAS got canned and we never got to enjoy this character. D.D. seemed like he had potential to be a very cool and different kind of Street Fighter character.  The "positive" and "negative" symbols on his gloves are intriguing... I wonder what that could've been about. 

Screenshots and video show D.D. with a punch similar to the Electric Wind God Fist and even a Steve Fox-style backsway technique... which leads me to believe that D.D. was most definitely a TEKKEN inspired Street Fighter character. As a fan of both series, I wanted to see this. In closing, D.D. definitely deserves to make a comeback to a future game. Hey got featured in SFV art at least, so we know Capcom hasn't forgotten about him! Bring him back! On a side note: D.D. shares a subtle likeness to C. Viper... I wonder if they work for the same corporation. Hmm.
