TOP FIVE MOST NOTABLE STREET FIGHTER CHARACTERS

Round 1 Fight!!! Well, when it comes to that 2d platform Fighting Game, You will only think of 2 notable games which is either Mortal Kombat or Street Figthers! Street Fighters influenced and changed the gaming history. Who among us are not familiar with at least 2 or three of its cute characters. And now, i will be listing the
TOP FIVE MOST NOTABLE STREET FIGHTER CHARACTERS
I just can't name this list as the "Best Street Fighter Characters" because you can only measure the character's ability and strength through gamers or player's gaming strategy.

TOP 5 MOST NOTABLE STREET FIGHTER CHARACTER
"BLANKA"

Blanka has green skin and long orange hair. He is a native and believed to be a monster by many. Blanka's first appearance in the Street Fighter series was in Street Fighter II. His prototypical name was "Big Dean Caves." Blanka was originally going to look more like a caveman and there are rumors that the design for King Rasta Mon from Saturday Night Slam Masters was one of the early Blanka character models. In Street Fighter Alpha 3, his character design was again changed to make him less ferocious-looking. Blanka has also made appearances in several spin-off titles. Blanka is available as a playable character in the later games of the Street Fighter EX series, Street Fighter EX 2 and Street Fighter EX 3. He also made appearances as a playable character in Capcom vs. SNK and Capcom vs. SNK 2.


TOP 4 MOST NOTABLE STREET FIGHTER CHARACTER
"M. BISON"

M. Bison, known as Vega in Japan, is one of the main villains and primary bosses of the Street Fighter games. His first chronological appearance is in Street Fighter Alpha 2, as the head of an elusive criminal and military organization known as Shadaloo. Along with his aspirations for world conquest, M. Bison has been working on perfecting a lethal and deadly energy that will exponentially increase his fighting ability, an inherently evil energy he refers to as "Psycho Power". His general attire consists of a red military uniform with large silver shoulder plates, wrist bands, and shin guards; on his cap is the skull insignia of his crime syndicate known as Shadaloo (sometimes referred to as Shadowlaw or Shadowloo). His clothing highly resembles the uniforms worn by SS officers of Nazi Germany, the winged skull on his visor cap and the first letter of Shadaloo on his belt is shaped as a single sig rune. The fact that Bison has anything to do with Nazi Germany storywise has yet to be confirmed since there's no official reference to this for except his clothing.



TOP 3 MOST NOTABLE STREET FIGHTER CHARACTER
"CHUN-LI"

She is the first female playable character to appear in a 1-on-1 fighting game. Introduced in Street Fighter II, Chun-Li was the only female character in the game, (as well as one of the youngest fighters to appear in Street Fighter II) and while not as physically powerful as the other characters, she was by far the quickest. Her most famous attack is the Hyakuretsukyaku (Hundred Rending Leg, commonly known as the Lightning Kick), where she repeatedly kicks her opponent from a tilted standing position with incredible speed. Chun-Li's appearance has differed several times in the Street Fighter series, as well as in official art and cameos she has made in other works. She is known for her very muscular thighs. She is 5 feet 6 1/2 inches according to her Street Fighter Alpha 3 biography. Chun-Li is the original fast character in the Street Fighter series, utilizing multiple rapid attacks rather than the slow damaging strikes of larger characters like Zangief. Her agile and swift movements are a favorite amongst game-players. It is interesting to note that in the early days of arcade fighting games, many other female characters played in a similarly speedy style, following the example set by Chun-Li.

TOP 2 MOST NOTABLE STREET FIGHTER CHARACTER
"KEN"



He is one of the main characters from the Street Fighter series of fighting games alongside Ryu. Although this has been debated by fans, Ken is also stated to be the second most popular character in the series, coming second to Ryu. Like Ryu, Ken's goal is to test his power against many different fighters and strive to become stronger. Ken is most easily recognized by his sparring gloves (yellow in the Alpha Series, red or brown elsewhere) and bright red karate gi with the arms ripped off, similar to Ryu's (Capcom has said that a red gi was chosen to stand out and to reflect his more flashy style of fighting). His gi is usually seen in better shape than Ryu's, since he can easily afford to keep up with and/or own spares. His hair is blond (some sources indicate that his hair may in fact be dyed; evidenced that some of his sprites and official artwork depict him with brown eyebrows) and has long eyebrows. He wears a black belt at his waist and fights barefooted. While Ryu is the serious and stoic of the two, Ken is the complete opposite. He's flashy, unorthodox, and unpredictable. He can also be very egotistical, arrogant and short tempered at times.


THE MOST NOTABLE STREET FIGHTER CHARACTER
"RYU"



Ryu has made an appearance in every Street Fighter game, as well as in every crossover fighting game with Capcom characters in it. Ryu has arguably become the most famous character in the fighting game genre, starring in early fighting games such as Street Fighter, but really got well known in Street Fighter II, where he was considered a "basic" character.In many of his appearances, Ryu carries around a large, white duffel bag containing items important to his travels such as: clothing, plane tickets, passports, and local currency. Ryu is usually a silent, serious individual whose severity is often juxtaposed against the light-hearted, fiery persona of his best friend, Ken. He travels the globe with a stern nature, often appearing to others as boring or detached. On rare occasion, Ryu shows a very bad sense of humor. Ryu is the quintessential "basic" character in fighting games with an intuitive array of punches and kicks, and very basic special moves. This simplicity makes Ryu a favorite for beginner and intermediate players. Ryu is available in every single Street Fighter game, allowing players familiar with previous Street Fighter games to begin playing immediately, without having to worry about learning how to use a new character, however, there are a few tweaks in his moveset which vary depending on the game.
