How Gouken joined the Tourney

After awakening two years later, Gouken leaves his dojo and tailed his students, pleased that they have come so far. However, he was not satisfied with just watching them and he decided to enter the new Smash Bros. Tourney in order to test their strength himself. Gouken successfully finds Ryu after Seth's defeat, and managed to seal the Satsui no Hado so he would never have to suffer with this power again.

Gouken does his one handed version of the Hadoken.

Tatsumaki Gorasen (Up)

Gouken does a swing kick to the face, then flies upward while doing a Tatsumaki, ending with a strong spin kick.

Kinjite Shoryuken (Hyper Smash)

Based on his Street Fighter IV Super Combo, Gouken raises his right fist back for a bit, then flies upwards with his fist upwards. If his opponent is too close to him, Gouken will bring the opponent up with him doing 8 hits.

Denjin Hadoken (Final Smash)

Based on his second Super Street Fighter IV Ultra Combo, Gouken puts his hands to his sides shouting "This is it!" then charges a Hadoken of lightning. He then shoots it forward. If it hits an opponent, he/she will be hit multiple times before being blown away. Players can also charge it up to add more damage.
