DD Gangs and Groups
Among the characters in game, gang members in the future are still present, some being joined with villains, while others changed their ways to do good. Some gangs have wanna-bes, who try really hard to be notice and accepted to either of the primary gangs as well.
The Sweets Gang
This group had been formed a few months after the defeat of The Animal Pack. The leader had been a gang member who had been recruited by The Animal Pack and his genius nearly caused the group to destroy a part of Chicago with a bomb. Hector V. Sweets the 3rd lead the group and performed operations behind the scenes. Hector was good at manipulating and lying to those who cared to listen, and often those people serves as a human shield for Hector, for example, J-Mayre, who fought James Konta substituted for Hector as he makes his daring escape. Hector isn’t a superhuman or strong like his enemies, but he is very, very smart and cunning and makes up for that in most encounters.
Hong Kong Triads
Old Japan’s corruption started to spread through other countries, including Hong Kong. Triads at the time were gang members until they took a turn to save their people instead of harming it, after seeing how crazed their government had went, not addressing serious crimes going on by their own party.

The group was feared by many, that they were forced to stay indoors, and other gang members who didn’t join them were killed.
The Yakyuza Wanting to seek new life away from the corruption, chaos and politics of Japan; the clan went to a new landmass located far away from Japan (far southeast, almost entering the pacific) and called it New Japan. Because of some rivalry among the few, the group had broken up into clans and spread throughout the continent and claimed lands. Because they were at peace, they lived as if they lived in 19th century Japan and remained on the misty landmass permanently. Original Japan called this land New Japan and wanted to claim it, however, officials stopped protesters and riots broke out. The officials told people of Japan that all of the Yakyuza members and their families and close friends moved there, and they are to have them stay there, they didn’t want gang members looming over them. Saying that they are able to start anew since they are all gone. As Old Japan has continued to fall into corruption and falsehood, the people of New Japan and the Yakyuza lived in peace and prosperity.
