Chun-Li

Chun-Li

Chun-Li is notable for being the first well-known playable female video game character, who was first introduced in the game Street Fighter. This has earned her the title of “first lady of fighting games.” Don’t let her cute hairstyle fool you though. She packs a mean kick with her trademark Lightening Kick and Spinning Bird Kick moves.
