hes going based off sales, all these game sell better in America than Japan

Because there are more people. as far as I can tell, VGchartz doesn't do a ratio of purchases to population.

the character's first games dont tell that by much.


The Western market is much, much larger than the Japanese market, even if you separate them into North America and Europe. Most games will sell more in the Western market than in the Japanese market. Look at MGS4 for example, that's a Japanese game with a Japanese character that sold more in North America and Europe than in Japan.

 

By popularity, Dante, Raiden and Heihachi are definitely Japanese characters.

Metal Gear Solid 2 sold more games per capita in Japan than in the US. 
population/millions of units sold
