Oro is a
mysterious, aged hermit whose
powers gave him an extremely long life (He is 140 years old). He lives in a cave
somewhere in the Amazon Jungle with many different animals, including a dog and
a turtle. When Oro was younger, he used to be a martial arts instructor in
Japan. He moved to Brazil in the early 1900s with a friend of his. His life in
Brazil wasn't going very well and he eventually became a recluse. He spent most
of his time practicing Senjutsu (Mystic Arts), a style made up of techniques
used by the immortal mountain hermits in Taoist myth. After many years, Oro
became a master of the style.
Oro became bored one day and decided to embark on a journey to find a student
worthy of inheriting his fighting style. He decided to enter the third World
Warrior tournament, and sat atop of airplanes to travel to various locations.
After defeating many fighters, he encountered Ryu.
After defeating him, Oro dropped out of the tournament and decided that Ryu was
a potential successor. Later,
found Ryu and began observing and aiding the young warrior's training, all while
remaining undetected. Ibuki had to fight
Oro once as a test to pass her ninja school graduation exam. Oro was
disappointed when Ibuki challenged him because he thought she was asking him for
No, Oro might not
be the prettiest character to look at, but he's a very original character in
more ways than one. From his awesomely-animation normal moves, to his
mannerisms, to his special & super moves... Oro is a very clever and well
thought-out design. He has some very "outlandish" attacks (some of
them rather humorous), and all of which were VERY original for 2D fighting game
character when he debuted in SF3: New Generation.
Oro is technically
the "oldest" character in the Street Fighter universe, making
interesting and entertaining design if you give him a chance. In case you
haven't been paying attention, Oro only uses one arm because he feels he's too powerful if he uses
that's pretty badass (unless of course he ends up losing. lol). Oro isn't the easiest character to
like, but I'm sure he has some fans out there.
