The leader of pansexual love cult based on Russia, Rasputin is also a sorcerer with great knowledge in magic. He fights the other World Heroes, preaching about the love all mankind should have. He is based on Grigori Rasputin, Russian mystic that believed that to purge temptation, one had to be in contact with it (that includes sex). Rasputin of World Heroes is loosely based on Grigori Rasputin, a mystical adviser in the court of Czar Nicholas II of Russia. He was believed to be a healer, psychic, visionary and prophet.

It has been brought to my attention that Rasputin from World Heroes is an "offensive" stereotype of gay/bi/pansexual people. As a heterosexual person, I never liked the character either. Rasputin makes things uncomfortable for all parties involved. This is supposed to be a FIGHTING game. What is this guy even doing? Raping people? This character did not age well. Rasputin alone makes me not want to play World Heroes... and I know I'm not the only one (I mean, look what happened to the series. Facts are facts.) Good thing he doesn't appear in other games besides World Heroes, because he would ruin those games too. Thankfully, SNK was smart enough to nip this one in the bud.

If you disagree with me, you're probably a troll. For diehard "troll types" who can't relate to martial arts, or anything that resembles FIGHTING in a fighting game, perhaps they'd declare Rasputin one their favorite characters. I remember seeing social media comments such as: "OMG BEST SUPER EVAR! DERP MERP." To any such creature, I say... GTFO.
