Dictator is a man who wants to rule the world with an iron fist, and his localized name certainly does reflect his actions and mannerisms. If you're form the U.S, then you may have first known him by M. Bison, and if you're from Japan, then you would have first known him by Vega. The reason why his name is different is very famous yet not so known. Look it up if you don't know. Dictator replaced Sagat as the main boss of Street Fighter. He's still the main bad guy even today in Street Fighter 5, though he's dropped and regained that role several times along the way. He's remembered as a very difficult fighting game boss, but certainly not the hardest, that title belongs to Shao Kahn. His move-set is just very annoying, with moves like the Psycho Crusher and the dreaded sliding kick being major quarter gobblers back in the arcades. His overall difficulty has been more toned down later down the line, but he's still a very strong character, with games like CvS2 and SF4 being one of his strongest incarnations.

Game-play wise, Dictator doesn't differ much from his CvS2 counterpart. His moves function the same, with the exception of the Psycho Impact, aka his alpha counter. It is now a command grab instead of a 2 hit physical attack. His combos aren't too long either. EX Attacks also have different properties, like the EX Scissor Kick being a way to extend combos, and the EX Psycho Crusher being a grab and acts like Raiden's Thunder Fly from Mortal Kombat. However, Dictator heavily relies on one mechanic: Psycho Aura. There is a lot going on with Psycho Aura, so I have a text file in Dictator's character folder that describes the mechanic in detail. Once you understand how it works and how to properly use it, you understand a very large part of Dictator's game-play. His AI is also very brutal, in a weird way. His combos and pokes are brain-dead simple, but his very knowledgeable usage of them makes him a pretty decent challenge, but you know, setting the difficulty to easy 1 also helps out a lot.
Other CvS2 mechanics like stun and guard meter are present by default, but can be changed with the configuration file.


I hope you enjoy this character.
