A sumo wrestler, a Brazilian monster, a soviet boxer and, my personal favourite, a fire-breathing mallu yogi formed one half of the original ensemble of heroes. Their antagonists included matadors and Thai boxers. What was the “show”?

Cracked by: Dibyo , udupendra , Abhishek , BiGFooT , prasanth , rahultimate , nishas thambi , jayanth , gammafunction and shashank.

Answer:  These were 4 of the 8 fighters in Capcom’s path-breaking arcade fighting game Street Fighter 2: World Warriors. See the comments for people who’ve identified all of them :-)

Shashank: The clue in the title is the sequence of buttons you need to push to perform the famous “Ha Dou Ken” move. Only people who’ve had an extremely nerdy childhood are expected to know that…
