Darun is a dark-skinned Indian who has a muscular build similar to Zangief. He has short black hair, a matching sharp mustache, an red indian mark on his forehead and eyes with no visiable pupils. He wears black wrestling shorts with a matching black wrestling belt and boots. He also wears gold bracelets in each sides of his wrists.
His alternate appearance consist of light orange wrestling shorts, a black strap on the center on his wrestling belt. He is barefoot, barehanded and wears gold leg warmers. His outfit is his traditional wrestling attire.
In Street Fighter EX2 and onward, he has black wrestling trunks, his boots have gold designs in each sides and his gold bracelet on his wrists also have designs.
Darun Mister's appearance, as well as his fighting style, are largely inspired by The Great Gama, a well known Pehlwani wrestler active from the 1900s to the 1930s.
Besides The Great Gama, Darun is possibly based on a well known Turkish wrestler, Koca Yusuf.
Darun hears of Zangief's legendary wrestling prowess and, bored with his inferior opponents, seeks out the Russian to prove to himself that he is indeed the world's ultimate fighter. He also acts as a bodyguard for Pullum.
In his Street Fighter EX3 ending, Darun finally reveals his new found purpose for himself as he thinks. "Young lads have no guts these days!" Sometime later, Darun becomes a master and instructor of Indraut Wrestling as he teaches his students to learn the Indra Bridge until he angrily scolds them from their wrong performance ("You fools! That's not Indra Bridge! It's an ordinary bridge!").
Darun is an Indian bodyguard who accompanies his employer Pullum, while she enjoys her travels across the world, fighting strong warriors. He is the champion of Indraut (インドラウト Indorauto?), an Indian version of wrestling where only bravest participate. He is friends with Zangief, with whom he has a mutual understanding with. They also had formed a tag team at one point called; "Ultimate Meteo Tag Team".
Gameplay and fighting styleEdit
As a wrestler, Darun's fighting style is similar to Zangief's. He also possesses similar full-circle moves, known as Indra Bridge and Brahma Bomb, his signature throw is a DDT, and his signature move is a power bomb. His Dusk Lariat is a series of clotheslines.
- Darun is the second Indian character to be introduced in the series, after Dhalsim. Interestingly, both share the same stage and theme music in Street Fighter EX Plus α for the PlayStation.
- Super Street Fighter IV newcomer Hakan is very similar to Darun in terms of appearance, as well as in some of his moves.
