In a similar vein to Dan being a parody of Art of Fighting's Ryo Sakazaki, the appearance of Dan's father, Go Hibiki, is also a parody of Mr. Karate.

In Super Gem Fighter: Mini Mix, Dan can call upon his father's ghost, whose tengu-like face bears a striking resemblance to the mask worn by Mr. Karate, who is also known as Takuma Sakazaki, the father of Ryo Sakazaki.
