Sagat, a character from the popular video games series Street Fighter, is one of the most powerful fighters of the game Street Fighter. In fact, he’s so powerful that in the very first Street Fighter, he was the final boss. It was in an update to the second game, Street Fighter II, that he become a playable character.
Dressing up like Sagat is one of the easiest cosplays ever. To dress up like him, you’ll need to put on a pair of Boxing Shorts and wear his signature Pirate Eye Patch. Then, it’s just a matter of getting yourself some athletic tape and building it up on your hands and legs. After that, it’s easy. Put on the Fake Zombie Scars and make it look realistic by dabbing it with Vampire Blood Gel.
Sagat is a proud and haughty character with some of the most destructive moves in Street Fighter history. His signature moves are the Tiger Cannon and Tiger Destruction. Acting out some of his moves will definitely make cosplaying Sagat much more effective.
Also, since you’re cosplaying the powerful Sagat, you have lots of other fighters you can pair him up with. Gather your friends and start planning the most powerful team-up ever. As a start, we’d suggest one of your friends cosplay with fellow fighter, Ryu. But while Ryu’s the obvious pair, you still have unlimited possibilities with characters from other universes like Tekken and Mortal Kombat being ideal choices.

Sagat was born in Thailand. As a former member of the powerful Shadaloo organization, Sagat was the final boss in Street Fighter I. He is known as “Emperor of Muay Thai” due to his superb Muay Thai fighting style. Although he is proud and likes to belittle his opponents, he is completely fair in his fighting practices and hates anyone who uses unhonorable means to win fights.
His biggest opponent and the one he considers worthy of fighting is none other than the lead character, Ryu. This is due to the fact that after a very long time, only Ryu was able to defeat Sagat in a final battle, which resulted in heavy damage to his chest. Sagat isn’t afraid to show this wound to his chest and even uses it to evoke emotions of hatred to win battles. He is not inherently evil and has the capacity for goodness, making him a highly unique character to cosplay.
