Something very strange has been happening in Japan after Terry Bogard was revealed. Apparently, there are many young Japanese gamers who are unaware who the character is, and are calling him a “muscular version of Pokemon Trainer”, another fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
There have been many comments such as these shared on Twitter, and some have went viral (translated by NintendoSoup):

“Is it normal to hear elementary/middle school students saying they don’t know who Terry Bogard is? How many years ago was the Legend of the Hungry Wolf released?”
