BIO:

Older brother to Billy, Jimmy Lee practices the Sousetsuken fighting style (a self-taught fighting style which combines Shaolin Kenpo, Tai Chi, Karate, Judo, and Aikido). He focuses primarily on powerfully offensive moves, rather than quick attacks like Billy Lee. Initially, he is wary about trying to end the crime and violence in their city, but he eventually agrees to help put a stop to the violence.

In the Rage of the Dragons storyline, Jimmy is a very unsociable young man. He lived on his own for a while. After his girlfriend was captured by gang members, he, and his brother Billy, decided to get some revenge... but his girlfriend was killed, and Jimmy later found out that Billy had some history with this gang. He hasn't spoken to Billy since.
Jimmy's first appearance was in the 1987 arcade game by Technos, Double Dragon.

Ahhh... the "Red guy" from Double Dragon! You've changed, buddy. Jimmy has seen things and been through hard times. I can respect that. Jimmy's original fighting game debut in the 1995 NeoGeo title was pretty generic. I think he should've kept the classic red vest & boots. Many years later, his 2002 redesign in Rage of the Dragons was a bit more interesting in my eyes. Something about his ROTD outfit is cool, yet awkward-looking in some ways... but for some reason, I like it. You rock those suspenders, bro. I like that long coat though..

Jimmy's fire effects in ROTD are particularly cool. Some of the best sprite-work in the game if you ask me! I also found it cool (and funny) that Jimmy's Rage of the Dragons fighting style turned out to be a hybrid of Ryu's and Terry Bogard's... I'm pretty sure that was no coincidence.
