Street Fighter IV's boss character, Seth, has made his way onto YouTube courtesy of LordAzrael707. The video shows Seth's intro and a quick bit of fighting.
Also here's a capture showing him on the character vs. screen and some the details about his moves courtesy of Tuan on the Capcom-Unity boards.

Seth Street Fighter IV Boss vs. screen

-- He's got Dhalsim's Hard Punch (stretchy arms).
-- He can throw Sonic Booms, including two consecutively.
-- He can Shoryuken (Dragon Punch).
-- He's got Urien's Shoulder Tackle as well as the Dive Knee, but he does it by bouncing off the wall and then flying at you... he can cover quite a bit of distance.
-- He's got the Urien/Gill anti-air elbow, and he can chain this into a mid-air sequence that ends with a Shoryuken. However, half the time he missed the Shoryuken.
-- His throw is an uppercut punch to the gut, which sends the opponent in the air, and then he jumps up and Screw Piledrives them to the ground.
-- He whiffed what looked like the Screw Piledriver animation twice. Maybe the "regular" throw I mentioned before was the Screw Piledriver.
-- He's got a Bison-like teleport.
-- He can suck you towards him and then attack you.
-- He's got the Gill standing Medium Kick...? The one where he's got a lot of reach...but if he hits you, then your character freezes and gets hit by multiple invisible hits.
-- His super or ultra... he fires a burst of air at you from his midsection. If it hits, your character gets sucked up into a whirlwind and then sucked into Seth's midsection...and then he spits them out. The air burst can be blocked and jumped over with the right timing, but if he catches you in the air at an inopportune moment... he will hurt you with this.
-- While I don't think this is unique to Seth, I got hit out of ultras/super combos A LOT.
-- The first round he takes it easy, but in round two he turns up the heat big time.

Sounds like he is going to be on par with facing Gill in Street Fighter 3 Third Strike. Let's just hope Capcom doesn't make Seth playable in online competition.
