—El Gado, Final Fight Revenge

El Gado (エル ガド Eru Gado?), also known as "E.G.", is a character from the Final Fight series. He is a member of the Mad Gear Gang, a knife expert who answers to Rolento.



El Gado's appearances changes wildly between games, but what stays consistent is that he is a tall, thin man with black hair who wears fatigues, carries a knife (or several), and usually sports a mustache and beard. He often wears a headband, but in some appearances, he wears a beanie. In Final Fight and its variations, he wore green, but in the Street Fighter Alpha series, he had a dull yellow outfit. His fellow foot soldier, Holly Wood, shares a very similar appearance. El Gado is of Hispanic origin, and his fighting style is Souo-katsuken (Double Scorpion Tail technique).

In his Street Fighter V profile artwork, El Gado sports a white bandana, along with a greenish-white outfit with several belts holding knives strapped to his chest. He also wears green wraps around his wrists and ankles.

Personality Edit

El Gado is portrayed as being a very stoic and secretive person, not telling many people about his past. He always sleeps with one eye open, causing him to be feared by many, even his friends. However, he seems to maintain a good relationship with Holly Wood, as the two regularly compete in knife throwing.[1]


Background Edit

El Gado's past is largely unknown, but apparently before coming to Metro City, he was trained in guerrilla warfare. Final Fight Revenge reveals his reason for joining the Mad Gear Gang, namely wanting to kill Rolento, who is apparently responsible for the death of his family.

Final Fight Edit

El Gado appears in Final Fight as a common foot soldier for the Mad Gear Gang, working under Belger's orders in his bid to retain control over Metro City. He attacks with kicks and by throwing knives.

Final Fight RevengeEdit

Final Fight Revenge expands on El Gado's backstory, revealing his desire for revenge against Rolento. In his ending, El Gado finally catches Rolento alone and puts a knife to his throat, causing Rolento to frantically bargain with him, telling him they can work it out and that he can make El Gado a very powerful man.[2] Since Rolento is still alive by the time of Street Fighter Alpha 2, and El Gado is apparently still working for him (as seen in Rolento's win poses), it is likely he has accepted the offer.
