* TheGreatestStyle: PlayedForLaughs by ''Franchise/StreetFighter''[='=]s [[Characters/StreetFighterAlpha Dan Hibiki]], who created his own martial art called as "Saikyo Style"[[note]]''Saikyo'' means [[MeaningfulName The Stronger One]] in Japanese[[/note]], which is all '''but''' powerful.
** Not played for laugh is Ansatsuken which is used by [[{{Shotoclone}} Ryu, Ken, Akuma, Gouken, and a few others]]. It is generally shown to be the deadliest martial art in the entire universe and the reason why Bison keeps coming after Ryu. It's also why Akuma wants him. The martial art, notably, also produces the Dark Hadou. Notably, Sakura and Dan both have a small amount of training in it, which is what makes them dangerous to World Warrior levels. Even if Dan shows a little bit of a good thing is a major bad one.
** Karin's Kanzuki-style martial arts is apparently one of the most elite styles in the Street Fighter world. Karin's story mode states that the best techniques of the style are those which are rare even for the heads of the family ([[AuthorityEqualsAssKicking by design, its strongest member]]) to fully master. Amongst its abilities is the skill to defeat enemies with nothing but a Battle Aura, and ([[UnreliableNarrator according to Karin herself]]), the ability to levitate like Dhalsim. It's telling that, on Street Fighter V's stat chart, Karin is second only to Akuma in technical skill ranking.
** Part of the reason why Sagat went so crazy after Ryu's defeat (before it was {{Retconned}}) is that his Tiger style Muay Thai was considered the greatest in the world with him as its greatest master. Sagat's defeat rebuttled this. While not strong to the level of superhuman abilities, Sagat pushed himself after this defeat that while he may not be able to achieve Ansatsuken levels of destruction, his Tiger style is certainly a second best at worst.

Each member originates from a nation associated with a distinct type of prestige:
** Pullum, Saudi Arabia (huge financial wealth)
** Blair, Monaco (ritzy exclusivity)
** Julia, England (class, heritage and tradition)
** Karin, Japan (refinement and courtesy)

** Zangief is easily the most infamous example as he was often depicted as a member of Shadaloo in various [[Film/StreetFighter American]] and [[Anime/StreetFighterIIV Japanese]] adaptations of the series back in the 1990s. The only cinematic adaptation during the '90s that didn't cast Zangief as a villain was ''Anime/StreetFighterIITheAnimatedMovie'' and he just had a cameo fight with Blanka. Fortunately for Zangief, this trend seems to have stopped over the course of the 2000s as later adaptations do depict Zangief as a hero for Russia like how he is in the games.[[note]]Dee Jay was also depicted as a Shadaloo member in the first live action ''Film/StreetFighter'' movie, but unlike Zangief, this was the only time.[[/note]] ''Film/WreckitRalph'' has him as a "bad guy," but emphasizes that that's just his job in the game, and he's actually a nice guy.

** Sagat was more of a downplayed example of this. Yes, he was a villainous member of Shadaloo, but older and newer adaptations have a strong tendency to play up his role with Shadaloo a lot more than the games did, normally depicting him as someone who has committed various crimes under Shadaloo, while in the games, he is more of a {{noble demon}} who really didn't do much for Shadaloo (especially during the ''Alpha'' series where Sagat really started to play up his noble demon persona). Adon has also been depicted as a Shadaloo member in certain ''Street Fighter'' manga adaptations, but while Adon is indeed quite the ArrogantKungFuGuy, he was never really deemed a villain in the games.

** This led to the inevitable MassiveMultiplayerCrossover (see VideoGame/CapcomVsWhatever for full details), which includes ''X-Men vs. Street Fighter'' (self-explanatory), ''Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter'' (again, self-explanatory), ''Marvel vs. Capcom'' (which now included characters from other Capcom games like VideoGame/MegaMan and VideoGame/CaptainCommando), ''Marvel vs. Capcom 2'' (which introduced even more Capcom characters, including some odd {{original|Generation}} ones like Amingo, the granddaughter of the original Son Son and the pirate Ruby Heart), ''Creator/{{Namco|Bandai}} [[VideoGame/NamcoXCapcom × Capcom]]'' (a genre shift to turn-based strategy RPG), ''Creator/{{Tatsunoko|Production}} [[VideoGame/TatsunokoVsCapcom vs. Capcom]]'' (self-explanatory), ''Marvel vs. Capcom 3'', ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone'' (a pair of sequels to ''Namco X Capcom'', which brought Creator/{{Sega}} into the mix in the first and Creator/{{Nintendo}} in the second), and ''Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite''.

*** Vulcano Rosso -- like Rose, suave and stylish (perhaps ''too'' stylish like Italians sometimes are) as well as being a VigilanteMan.
