"Concentrate not on destroying your foe, but on attaining your own victory." Gouken is the marital arts Master who trained Ryu and Ken, as well as his brother and former training partner, Akuma.
Gouken is originally the training partner of his brother, Akuma, under the tutelage of their master, Goutetsu. Both Gouken and Akuma are trained to utilize lethal techniques including Hadouken, the Shoryuken and the Tatsumaki Senpukyaku, however after Akuma uses these techniques to kill Goutetsu, Gouken modifies them to eliminate their lethality and creates a new system which he teaches to his young students Ken and Ryu. Though it is originally believed that Gouken is killed by Akuma, the former survives the latter’s Shun Goku Satsu technique by succumbing to a protracted catatonic state. He later reveals his perpetuity to Ryu, intervening when Ryu begins to exhibit the corrupting darkness commonly associated with Akuma.
