- For other uses, see Hayate (disambiguation).
Hayate is a Japanese swordsman from the village of Kukunochi whose father was the legendary hero who sealed the beast of Orochi. When Orochi escapes from his imprisonment and kidnaps the local shrine maiden, Hayate slays the demon like his father did before him. Hayate and the maiden then become the new guardian deities of the village.
Hayate is notable for being the only character from the original Street Fighter EX 2 not to return in the arcade version of Street Fighter EX 2 Plus. He appears in the PlayStation version as a hidden character. According to the game's storyline, Hayate vanquishes the demon his father once sealed and saves the local shrine maiden, becoming the new guardian deity of Kukunoichi, which may explain this.
- Hayate uses his katana only in his special moves, command normal, supers and throws; all his normals are the same as all other characters as with almost all EX characters.
