Hiryu in Street Fighter Alpha 2

YEAR: 1996

Before Hiryu made his appearance in Marvel vs. Capcom, he made a brief appearance in Ken's stage in Street Fighter Alpha 2, along with several other Capcom characters. Yes, the teddy bear made it in too. This later led to the rumor that the teddy bear was an homage to a programmer who committed suicide... but that's another story.

Incidentally, despite popular opinion, that's not really Hiryu in Ken's stage. See, it's Eliza's birthday party, and everyone's dressed up as a different Capcom character. So technically, it's just one of Eliza's guests... dressed up like our man Hiryu.

Not that it really matters, either way.
