The #1 character based on the TRUE Master of the Martial Arts (Bruce Lee) ... nothing more really need be said.
But did you see the Japanese anime w/ Fei Long vs Ryu?!! ... It was clearly biased to the Japanese character (Ryu had to beat the Chinese, Fei Long) , but we all know WHO would've won that fight.  WaaaaTaaaa!!
