Doctrine Dark (ドクトリン・ダーク Dokutorin Dāku?), real name Holger (オルガー Orugā?)[1], also known as D. Dark, is a playable character from the Street Fighter EX series.



Doctrine Dark wears a gas mask for letting him breathe since Rolento hit him in the chin, as well wearing military clothes that resembles a S.W.A.T uniform, he uses various weapons like a fiber wire, knives and explosives and has short blonde hair.


Concept Edit

Doctrine Dark was probably based and/or inspired by Scorpion, Kabal and Baraka of Mortal Kombat fame.

  • Not only is Dark's moveset somewhat similar to Scorpion's (explained below) but in Dark's CGI rendered ending in Street Fighter EX Alpha Plus, it is revealed that his special unit's emblem is a scorpion, possibly a reference to Scorpion.
  • Both Dark and Kabal are covered by a gas mask, Kabal was burnt alive and Dark was hit by Rolento in his chin, due to this he can't breathe. Unlike Dark however, Kabal is officially seen unmasked.
  • The blades on Dark's arms are similar to Baraka.


Street Fighter EXEdit

Born in the Untied States and of German heritage[1], Dark once served under the orders of Guile with his own special tactical reconnaissance unit. During his tour of duty, his own unit got into a bit of a scuffle with another rival unit, lead by Rolento. The minor scuffle escalated into a full-on battle, with both sides receiving heavy casualties. Doctrine Dark was the only member of his unit to escape. However, he was severely injured emotionally and physically.

Street Fighter VEdit

Doctrine Dark was a brave soldier with an exceptional sense for battle. He was assigned to a special force with great expectations about his future. However, his unit was exterminated by an ambush from Rolento's enemy troops and he was the sole survivor. Filled with hatred for both Rolento and his former superior Guile, he has now become a killing machine burning with a desire for revenge, wanting to win by any means necessary.

Gameplay/Fighting styleEdit

Dark's fighting style can be comparable to Scorpion from the Mortal Kombat fighting game series, with his signature move being a wire that catches the opponent and can either drag them in for a combo (like the Mortal Kombat character) or electrified. He also makes use of concealed blades and explosives.

Stage ThemesEdit


  • On the Versus Screen Vs. Doctrine Dark, a strange sound can be heard. This doesn't happen in Street Fighter EX Plus Alpha.
  • Doctrine Dark's fighting style and dressing is similar to Karasu from YuYu Hakusho (both use explosives and wear a mask).
  • Guile's Summer Vacation alternate costume in Ultra Street Fighter IV is based on Doctrine Dark.
  • Charlie's second alternate costume in Street Fighter V, is also based on Doctrine Dark's outfit as his military outfit except the bulletproof vest and combat boots are green instead of blue.
