Jean Pierre


Jean Pierre is a French gymnast who always achieved perfect scores until one day he unexpectedly scored a 9.98. Since that time, Jean began martial arts in order to improve his grace and strength. He participates in the Great Grapple tournament in order to see the results of his personal training. From within his participation in the 1996 Summer Olympics, Jean was personally surprised to see Ryoko participating in the event as well. Later on, Jean would compete in the second Great Grapple tournament in order to help buy a small chalet in the southern region of France.

In Fighter's History: Mizoguchi Kiki Ippatsu!! cameo he encounters Mizoguchi during the latter's quest. Jean agrees to help Mizoguchi out in taking him to South Korea, but instead of having Mizoguchi ride in his personal aircraft, Jean has him tied up on the front of the aircraft itself until Mizoguchi inadvertently falls off and crashes into a local South Korean restaurant, to where he unexpectedly meets up with and encounters Yungmie.

"This guy looks like such a pansy." -My 10 year old self in 1993. I think Jean's actual official backstory is that he was Guile's stunt double for a Street Fighter movie sequel that later got cancelled. (Also, Jean got fired before the movie was canceled because he was caught selling coke and showed up to work smelling like... well... roses.)

By the time I was 11 or 12 years old, I would've been embarrassed play a game like Fighters History... with the characters looking like cheap "dollar store" versions of the REAL fighting game characters. In retrospect, I don't hate Jean Pierre... I just don't like him. Still, something about his design still has that cheesy, nostalgic 90s charm. His animations were somewhat memorable.
