    YouTube user Jed Hudson recently revealed some unused character models in the original Virtua Fighter. While you may have long known about the character Siba, who was later used in an official capacity in Fighters Megamix, the two other character models certainly warrant some discussion or speculation around what could have been. The SEGAbits channel have put together a little review on this new finding.

      If it's true that vf1 team members went to namco for tekken1 then jack/pjack being based off Jeff makes sense

      I am just wondering why they had a character named Jeff when they already had Jeffery in there? Unless, Jeffery had a different name when they first created the character.

      I'm guessing Jeffry's name was still "Willy" when this Jeff guy was being worked on.

      It is pretty much evident that these prototypes ended being in Tekken. The early model for Akira was used for Kazuya Mishima and the military character Jeff Buckman that ended being Jack.

      There's also of course Siba/Shiiba/Majid/Majido our favorite middle eastern character way before the existence of SF's Rashid and Tekken's Shaheen.

      Here the three in motion:



      There was also a brown haired character with three different outfits. It appears under the Dural name some speculating that he may have been a prototype boss character. Some say his name was named Takeru, others say that Takeru was the original intended name for the prototype Akira that looked like Kazuya Mishima, a 22 year old karateka from Japan. His three skins are: One with a Chinese outfit. Other with a more urban clothing and the last one with a pro wrestling like design:

      While it appears to be the same character his hairstyle seems different, less spiky

      Would you like to see them being re-imagined for VF6?
