Ash is a mini-boss in the Japanese version of Streets of Rage 3. He was taken out of the American version, as he was deemed to be offensive. This is because he comes across as a stereotypically gay man in derriere-bearing chaps who prances around the screen, giggles, and cries when he's defeated.
Despite all this, he is a very powerful opponent who can slam the player to the ground or smack them hard, taking a lot of their health. He was planned to be a playable character after defeating him, but removed again for the same reason. He can be played with cheat codes, however.
