** Notably, In both StreetFighterIV and the comic book, Sakura has an alternative uniform, which is basically a dogi with something similar to gym uniform underneath. [[spoiler: In the comics, it's her attire as Ryu's apprentice.]]



*** In the ''Super Street Fighter'' comic book by UDON, this crosses into GoneHorriblyRight, where Sakura ends up (albeit briefly) tapping into the Satsui No Hado enough to get Akuma's attention through pure determination!



* ModestyShorts: What her red spats ''technically'' are (although they still show a pretty good amount of her thigh, which causes a good number of western players to take it as a PantyShot).

to:

* ModestyShorts: What her red spats ''technically'' are (although they still show a pretty good amount of her thigh, which causes a good number of western players to take it as a PantyShot). She even uses them with her dogi, when she's barely wearing anything else other than the dogi's top.



** In ''Super Street Fighter'', Sakura has graduated, and is now living with Ryu almost full-time and learning off him. This puts her in a very bad place when Ryu is abducted...



* SchoolUniformsAreTheNewBlack: She engages in many martial arts battles in her school uniform. In ''IV'', when she took a plane to visit Ken, she donned the outfit. She continues to wear it in ''IV'' despite having graduated some time ago ([[FridgeBrilliance and it looks noticeably small on her in that game]]).

She continues to wear it in ''IV'' despite having graduated some time ago ([[FridgeBrilliance and it looks noticeably small on her in that game]]). Within the most recent UDON comics, she barely uses it as a result, preferring to go with her own version of Ryu's iconic style.

* AwesomeButImpractical: If Mika performs her full, uninterrupted speech during her V-Skill, her next throw is basically a OneHitKill. However, the full speech is over 15 seconds long, so unless the opponent is completely braindead, this is never going to happen in a real match.

* BewareTheSillyOnes: His gimmick in ''SFIV''. His attacks are slow, stupid-looking, and none-too-accurate, but do way more damage than you'd expect from their appearance. The Gadoken, for example, a parody of Ryu and Ken's famous Hadoken that launches a tiny, short-ranged green firebll, does more damage than Sagat's Tiger Shot, one of the most dangerous projectile attacks in the game.

* {{Hunk}}: In ''SFV'' there's a mod that renders him shirtless to further drive home this trope.



* FemaleGaze: His post-match victory animation has him running off to his next objective. But guess where the main focus of the camera is at?



* TallDarkAndHandsome

to:

* TallDarkAndHandsome TallDarkAndHandsome: 5'10".


Added DiffLines:

* {{Hunk}}: Textbook definition. Poison can attest to this.

** Given the fact that Guile can only perform a Charlie-style Flash Kick during his [[DesperationAttack Flash Explosion ultra]], it's likely that Guile is still far below Charlie at his peak.
** One of the strongest characters in the series, to the point that ''Bison himself'' actually compliments him on his strength and skill.

* GeniusBruiser: Charlie is a college graduate with a master's degree in biology and is one of the toughest fighters in the whole series. Some of his concept art and winposes feature him reading.



* KnowWhenToFoldEm: He got curbstomped by Bison after his resurrection and got the heck out of Dodge when he realized he was outmatched. He didn't give up on his goal of killing Bison, but knows he won't be the one to finish the job.

* LivingEmotionalCrutch: Served as one to Guile. After his [[spoiler:first]] death, Guile turns extremely bitter and introverted. {{Iron|y}}ically, in his return Nash himself would do exactly the same.

* MightyWhitey: A Meta example. Of all characters in this Japanese game, it's an American who ends up being such a complete GameBreaker that he needs to die for there to be a story.



* TooPowerfulToLive: A ''very'' rare heroic example. He defeated Bison at his strongest and later forced a stalemate (against a freshly regenerated Bison) despite being wounded.



** Bison considers Charlie the only protagonist worthy of a serious fight, as demonstrated in their pre-fight banter in ''Alpha 3''. Subverted in that Charlie holds nothing but unrestrained fury towards Bison and sees him as little more than a monster in desperate need of killing, a sentiment which has outright consumed Nash by the time of his return in ''V''.
