Sagat (サガット, Sagatto/สกัด, Sagad) is a character in the Street Fighter series. He was originally a boss character in the early editions of the series. He was later turned into a regular, playable character. Sagat is also referred to as "The King of Muay Thai" or "The God of Muay Thai" in the games. Many Thais believe that Sagat is based on a real-life Muay Thai fighter named Sagat Petchyindee (สกัด เพชรยินดี), but Capcom has never confirmed this.
