Jacky Bryant is a fictional character in the video game series Virtua Fighter. Nicknamed the "Blue Flash", Jacky is an indy car racer, and is featured as a playable character in Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing (in a team with Akira Yuki). He's also playable in Dead or Alive 5: Ultimate (along with Akira, Sarah, and Pai Chan). He was born on August 28, 1970 in San Francisco, California. He is also the elder brother of Sarah Bryant.

Jacky fights using Bruce Lee's incredibly versatile Jeet Kune Do style, allowing him a few of Bruce Lee's actual techniques that he chose to perfect during his lifetime. The most important aspect of Jacky's game are his combos, which can be utilized to repeatedly strike and inflict massive damage.

Jacky has a hot passion for speed, to a point where it extends to everything in his life. He considers himself "faster than lightning", and has a very low tolerance for anything or anyone he perceives as being too slow. In any situation he finds himself in, he never loses his confidence, especially when it comes to Sarah, his friends, or his racing career. Jacky enters the World Fighting Tournament in an effort to put an end to Judgment 6, the organization responsible for all the troubles he and his sister have endured throughout the series.

Jacky was injured in the 1990 Indianapolis 500 and around 2 years later, he found the mystery group who caused the accident and lost his sister, Sarah. He didn't rescue her (his intentions in the 1st and 2nd tournaments) until Virtua Fighter 3, but made her lose her memory due to an attempt to un-brainwash her. She ended up moving to her own apartment in New York. He joined the 3rd tournament to protect her. Sarah did regain her memories and Jacky lost the motivation to fight. He started his own racing team, but J6 killed any sponsor he had. He joined the 4th tournament due to a letter J6 gave him making him join. Vanessa Lewis, Sarah's bodyguard, went missing after the 4th tournament. J6 was still messing with his racing career, making sponsors pull-out and his car breaking down. Jacky decided to get revenge and then the invitation to the 5th tournament came.

In Super Smash Bros. 4[edit]

A Mii Brawler dressed as Jacky.

Jacky is the basis for a paid downloadable content costume for Mii Brawlers. Nintendo also released a QR code for those who wish to have the exact Mii used in the costume's advertising. The costume resembles his appearance from the recent Virtua Fighter games, where he wears a leather jacket.

Trivia[edit]

  • In the New Content Approaching Direct, the Jacky Mii is seen fighting Zero Suit Samus, a possible reference to how she and Sarah Bryant look similar.
    • This was referenced once again when they were showing off the Akira Assist Trophy in the November 1 Ultimate Direct, along with Wolf, referencing Wolf Hawkfield.
