All Hail the Emperor of Muay Thai!
Sagat holds a special place in the pantheon of videogame characters for being the first of two characters (the other being Adon) to use Muay Thai as a fighting style.
Me, personally, I enjoy using him as he is powerful and in the right hands, he is unstoppable. Repeated Tiger Blows in the corner makes people mad in Alpha 3.
Capcom should at least give him some new sprites instead or recycling them from past games. Eventhough SvC Chaos blew, the SNK Sagat looked pretty cool.

Sagat won the title of Emperor/God of Muay Thai from Nuah Kahn as a teenager, and became a national hero in Thailand. He defended his title from a fighter named Go Hibiki, in a match that cost Sagat the use of his right eye, and cost Go his life. Go's son, Dan, swore revenge on Sagat.
Sagat trained Adon, and held the first World Warrior tournament to prove that he was not only the strongest Muay Thai kickboxer, but the strongest fighter in the world. Only one fighter managed to reach Sagat: a young martial artist named Ryu. Initially, Sagat was able to pin Ryu, and was sure that he was the winner of the match. However, Ryu became desperate to win the fight and was consumed by the Satsui no Hadou and executed the Metsushoryuken, grievously wounding Sagat and leaving a massive scar across his chest. Because of this event, Sagat has sworn revenge on Ryu.
During the alpha series, Adon mocked his teacher for losing to Ryu and challenged him for the title of God of Muay Thai. His rage blinded him, and Sagat lost to Adon, but not before beating the younger man so hard that he would be in traction for four months. Consumed with rage and hatred, Sagat eagerly joined the criminal organization known as Shadoloo. M. Bison had offered him Shadoloo resources to find Ryu and provide Sagat with a rematch. Sagat's nearly indomitable power provided him with the position of Bison's personal bodyguard, one of the feared Shitenno (Four Heavenly Kings of Shadoloo).
During his tenure in Shadoloo, Sagat encountered Dan, now an adult seeking revenge for his father's death in the fight with Sagat. Sagat realized how anger can make people do things they regret, so he purposely lost the fight (Although Dan doesn't believe that he did), which allowed Dan to defeat him and satisfy his anger.
Sagat realized that his scar was a result of the killing intent which possessed Ryu called the Satsui no Hadou. Finally understanding that true rivals should not be blinded by rage and hatred, nor be seduced by it, and realizing Bison's real intentions, Sagat left Shadoloo.
However, when Sagat tendered his resignation, Bison presented him with a brainwashed Ryu, and told Sagat he could have the rematch he always wanted. Despite Sagat's disappointment with fighting a corrupted opponent, Sagat still fought Ryu. To break Bison's mind control, he implored to Ryu that a true warrior would not give in to such treachery. Ryu awakened from Bison's control and, rejecting the Satsui no Hadou, drove Bison off. Sagat finally realized that rivalries must have their limits.
