Terry Bogard

Terry Bogard is an SNK character who makes appearances in Fatal Fury and King of Fighters. Terry is a formidable fighter who enters worldwide tournaments, but his basic clothes gives no hint of that save the fingerless gloves and sleeveless shirt.

Guile

In the Street Fighter series, Guile is a US Air Force major who sets out to avenge his wingman’s death. He does this by bare-knuckle brawling M. Bison. An F-14 Tomcat would get the job done much faster, but where’s the fun in that?

Blanka

Blanka makes his first appearance in Street Fighter II. As a child, he becomes stranded in the Amazon after a plane crash. There he becomes exposed to electric eels that mutate his appearance and give him his electric powers.

Cammy

In the Street Fighter series, Cammy is an assassin who turns on M. Bison to become an MI6 secret agent. Cammy’s gloves and boots are well suited for combat. Her leotard and braided pigtails? Not so much.

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.

E. Honda

Edmond Honda, better known as E. Honda, is a professional sumo wrestler who’s featured in the video game Street Fighter. Honda’s signature move is the Hyaku Retsu Harite which literally translates to the Hundred Violent Sumo Hands but is more commonly referred to as the Hundred Hand Slap.

Sakura

Sakura Kasugano is a Japanese schoolgirl in the famous fighting game, Street Fighter. Fascinated by Ryu from the same series, she studies his combat and picks up his fighting style, making her one of the top females in the popular game produced by Capcom.

Ryu

Ryu is notably one of Street Fighters most popular characters. Premiering in the very first Street Fighter in 1987, he’s been hadoken-ing his way through a series of sequels, crossovers, and even mangas to date. He is arguably one of the most prominent icons in video game history. Just Google ‘Ryu’. Do it. You won’t.
