MASA, Bad Darkness
Bonus Kun (also put as Bonus-kun) is a character that appears mainly in the two fighting games made by Sunsoft, Galaxy Fight and Waku Waku 7. He appears as a bonus character (hence his name) in Arcade Mode of both games, but the Waku Waku 7 incarnation is generally more recognized.
Bonus Kun is a punching bag who originally came from Punching Bag Planet, but left to become a fighter. He is a direct parody of Ryu, being coloured white like Ryu's clothing, having Ryu's red headband, and can perform several of Ryu's attacks like Hadouken and Shoryuken. He also has Ryu's 'serious' expression on his face.
Bonus Kun was made for M.U.G.E.N by a Japanese creator known as MASA, who is known for making characters from 2D fighting games (more commonly Street Fighter).
MASA's Bonus Kun
MASA's version is based off the Galaxy Fight version, but all it can do is shoot a Hadouken, kick and headbutt the opponent; this could be because that is all the character had in Galaxy Fight as compared to his Waku Waku 7 incarnation. Even when not controlled by the AI, this character can still attack on its own accord when it isn't told to do anything for a certain period of time, most commonly after it has been attacked.
Bad Darkness's Bonus Kun
This version uses the Waku Waku 7 counterpart, so there's more content in it than MASA's version. There are no new bells and whistles with this version. Just a straight, to-the-point conversion of said character, which can be preferable to those who prefer simplicity.
Bonus Kun is designed to be a shoto-clone, harboring all the moves used by Ryu and Ken, including the Hadouken, Shoryuken, and Hurricane Kick. His Dangerous Move has him charging up, then crashing down onto the opponent like a bomb.
