BIO:

A highly skilled boxer, and a true gentlemen, Dudley is the son of a wealthy British noble. His father was a former athlete turned successful businessman. Eventually, his father lost his business and the family fortune. The losses prompt Dudley to start boxing in an effort to become wealthy enough to buy everything back. He is successful and brings wealth back to his family on boxing alone. During the timeline of SF3: New Generation, Dudley sets out to find the man who purchased his father's old Jaguar (Gill). He joins the third World Warrior tournament to meet Gill and buy the car back. Although Dudley doesn't win the tournament, Gill is impressed enough with Dudley's skill to give the car back.

During the timeline of SF3: 3rd Strike, Dudley has been knighted, receiving the honorary title of "Sir" after making a comeback and winning the championship title. He was then invited into a contest that will be held in the presence of the royal family. He decides to travel the world and improve himself before the day of the match. Dudley is also shown to have a great interest in the gardens of his estate, occasionally losing track of time or getting lost, as shown in his Third Strike ending.
 
     
 
During the events of SSF4, Dudley is the reigning British boxing champion and is invited to participate in S.I.N's tournament. Although he finds the invitation to be lacking in "social graces," he accepts for two reasons: to look for suitable floral additions to his garden and to take his mind off of his father's car, which is missing. After the tournament, Dudley returns home empty handed but is pleased to suddenly find a wild rose in his garden.

In the SF3 series, Dudley took the place of Balrog as the series pugilist. Interestingly, Dudley fights completely different from Balrog, demonstrating a certain "finesse" not shown by many other fighting game boxers. Not only does Dudley do the art of boxing a lot more justice with his flashy & dynamic style, but his well-executed punches & personality brought in a new era of Street Fighter character. Along with the rest of the SF3 cast, Dudley brilliantly represented his fighting style and added so much impact to the game.

As a fairly decent SF3 Dudley player, I was happy to see him return in SSF4. While they got his visual appearance right in SF4, I'd say Dudley's new voice (both versions) and animations turned out "subpar" when compared to his original 2D appearance. Sadly, 3D Dudley's incarnation in SF4 lacks the oomph, fluidity, and personality of his original SF3 version. I guess when you've become accustomed to SF3's epic animation, it's hard to accept anything less. I think the "heart" of Dudley's design will forever live in SFIII: New Generation, 2nd Impact, and 3rd Strike. Nonetheless, Dudley is a brilliant and unforgettable Street Fighter character. Along with Steve Fox, he's one of my all time favorite pugilists!
