    C. Viper - USA 
"My gadgets are cheating? How naïve... Nothing in life is fair. Remember that."

Voiced by: Mie Sonozaki (Street Fighter IV, Marvel vs. Capcom 3; Japanese), Michelle Ruff (Street Fighter IV, Marvel vs. Capcom 3; English)

Full name Crimson Viper. A spy from the CIA acting as a mole in Seth's organization. She was sent to gather data on S.I.N. (Shadaloo Intimidation Network) and its BLECE Project, and to stop them. Her real name is Maya and she has a daughter named Lauren.

  • Action Mom: She's stated to have a daughter in the game, and in the tie-in film, the little girl is shown in several scenes. And in the ending animation sequence of her Arcade Mode in Super Street Fighter IV, she meets up with Lauren, giving her a hug and telling her that she loves her.
  • Alternate Company Equivalent: Not so much in her fighting style but in her story, she's arguably Capcom's interpretation of Vanessa from The King of Fighters (both being female secret agents with a family life back at home).
  • Ambiguously Brown: In some artwork. She's likely mixed-race.
  • Animal Motifs: Her code name is Crimson Viper. Her red hair is styled to resemble a snake, with a loose strand forming the tongue, even.
  • Badass Longcoat: As her alternate costume.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her default and first alternate costumes, the alternate more so than the default.
  • Bifauxnen: Subverted—When first introduced, her back braid was not seen a lot, and if it wasn't for her breasts, she might've passed as a guy, what with wearing a tuxedo. Now that it's known that she has that braid...
  • Breakout Character
  • Capcom vs. Whatever: She joined the cast of Marvel vs. Capcom 3, being the first of the new Street Fighter characters to be in a Vs. game. This meant she achieved in three years what several Capcom characters have failed to do in many: appear in a Vs. game.
  • Cleavage Window: Divided in two by the tie.
  • Clothes Make the Superman
  • Code Name: Crimson Viper.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Because she uses a battle suit to fight, she's been labeled a cheater and dishonorable to some of the World Warriors. See the win quote at the top of Viper's bio for her response.
  • Combat Stilettos
  • Confusion Fu: In the hands of a master, fighting against her is a constant guessing game.
  • Cool Shades
  • Dark Action Girl: Subverted: she seems to be a reverse mole in regards to S.I.N., and while cold to the other warriors does have a kinder side that she shows to her little girl.
  • Dark-Skinned Redhead
  • Difficult but Awesome: She's generally thought of to be the hardest character in the game to learn, because her moves demand a very high execution curve. However, her unpredictable mixups and raw speed and power more than make up for it, if she is mastered.
  • The Dragon: She's played as one for Seth in Street Fighter IV and in the tie-in film, but she's apparently a reverse mole instead.
  • Eye Beams: Possibly in response to fan demand for Cyclops that never panned out in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, her shades get the ability to do this in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 as a special known as Optic Laser.
  • Foreign Fanservice: American, and her 98cm bust is the biggest among any female in the series. Ironically, Chun-Li is still bigger in-game.
  • Good Hair, Evil Hair: She boasts a delinquent pompadour, hinting at her duplicitous nature.
  • Groin Attack: C. Viper pulls off a rare female version on Cammy in The Ties That Bind. With a fistful of lightning no less.
  • Guile Heroine: Viper works for the CIA, is the reverse mole to S.I.N., investigates Shadaloo, apparently drops anonymous tips to the other fighters, etc.
  • I Have a Family
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She can be kinda icy to the other World Warriors. Still, she is sweet and cuddly with her little daughter as seen at the end of her arcade mode in Super Street Fighter IV.
    • It also shows in some of her win quotes against certain opponents in SSFIV; while most of her comments are rather caustic, some of them have express a genuine interest in and sympathy for her opponents' personal situations.
    (to Guile) "Whose dog tags are those? Ah, I see. You're fighting for a lost friend..."
    (to Ibuki) "I used to skip school all the time, too. Those were the days..."
  • Lightning Bruiser: C. Viper is not only quick, but her combos deliver a ton of damage.
    • Also, due to her Thunder Knuckle attack, she's also a literal Lightning Bruiser...
  • Mysterious Woman: Even provides the page quote.
  • Noodle Incident: A serious version: in her appearance in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, her win quote against M.O.D.O.K. is "Haven't had dealings with A.I.M. in a long time". This implies that she has a backstory of missions similar to the one she has in SFIV that we don't see anything of.
  • Nothing Personal: She's here on an assignment, nothing more and nothing less.
  • Playing with Fire
  • Punch Clock Hero/Punch Clock Villain: She seems to be highly uninterested in fighting, only using this as a means to an end to complete her mission.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her braid reaches down to the back of her knees.
  • Reverse Mole: Heavily implied that she's a CIA agent working undercover.
  • The Rival: To Chun-Li, every time they encounter each other.
  • Sensual Spandex/Sexy Backless Outfit: Her second DLC costume.
  • Shock and Awe
  • Shockwave Stomp: She can punch the ground underneath her really hard, generating localized shockwaves at different distances, depending on the strength of the punch used.
  • Statuesque Stunner
  • The Woman In Black
  • X-Ray Sparks: Thunder Knuckle has this effect on her opponents.

    Abel - France 
"Street fighting is all about analysis, prediction, and reaction. That's it."

Voiced by: Kenji Takahashi (Street Fighter IV, Street Fighter X Tekken; Japanese), Jason Liebrecht (Street Fighter IV, Street Fighter X Tekken; English)

A ridiculously tall and large young Frenchman who uses mixed martial arts. He is an amnesiac who was taken in by a mercenary who rescued him from one of Shadaloo's bases. After the mercenary died, he decided to hunt down surviving members of Shadaloo, believing them to be the connection to his lost memories. He enters the Street Fighter IV tournament to find out Shadaloo's connection to the S.I.N. corporation.

  • Apologetic Attacker: More than one of his quotes have him either apologizing to his opponent or showing some worry for their well-being.
  • Cloning Blues: It is hinted in Seth's story mode and Abel's ending that Abel may be a clone of Seth, or perhaps Seth's original.
  • Confusion Fu: One of his unlockable titles is "Mixup Master."
  • French Jerk: Nope.
  • Gentle Giant: Has a thing for dogs, specially the white puppy he befriends in his Super SFIV prologue. Who happily comes to greet him in his ending, as Abel happily says "It's good to be back home."
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: While is more apparent in the art for the character than on his actual in-game model, Abel has his body Covered with Scars from head to toe, similarly to Zangief.
  • Gratuitous... Something: His voice in English has a particularly muddled accent that randomly switches from English to French to German to... You wouldn't know he's French if not for the flag in his selection screen picture.
    • Gratuitous French: He now actually uses a little French in his Street Fighter X Tekken appearance - "En garde, s'il vous plaît." ("Get ready please" more or less) and "Aidez-moi!" (Help!) when he tags out.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Linked to Shadaloo. As such, he's something of an Man Child. Just see the below trope.
  • Lightning Bruiser
  • Loony Fan: In IV, his rival battle is against Fei Long. He's a huge fan of Fei Long's movies; when Fei Long meets him in Fei's rival battle, Abel expresses his admiration of the guy by picking a fight with him. You'll laugh when a sound byte of Abel saying, "I've seen all of your movies~!" plays after, say, Abel using his HCB + P command throw on Fei Long.
  • Quest for Identity: "Someone out there must know something about me. I've got to find them!"
  • Protagonist Without A Past
  • Spear Counterpart: Of Cammy, arguably. They're both young, amnesiac clones of the Big Bad of the game they first appeared in, and both enter the tournament in order to find out who they really are. They're also both blond with light blue eyes, and also share a scarred face. However Cammy prefer cats while Abel chooses dogs.
  • Uh-Oh Eyes: His eyes briefly turn black during his Soulless Ultra, hinting at his connection to Seth.
  • Unnecessary Combat Roll: Abel incorporates the Marseilles Roll, a rolling maneuver, in his fighting style. Although, this move is actually effective when it comes to closing the distance on projectile-spamming foes, or dodging attacks, so it's actually a necessary combat roll.
  • Younger than They Look: Possibly as an homage to K' from The King of Fighters, who looks like he's in his 20s but is actually 16.

    El Fuerte - Mexico 
"In the ring or in the kitchen, no one can beat me!"

Voiced by: Daisuke Ono (Street Fighter IV; Japanese), JB Blanc (Street Fighter IV; English)

A luchador/aspiring chef. He enters the tournament to find the perfect recipe for his new delicacy. El Fuerte is an old friend of T.Hawk.

  • Catch Phrase: "IT'S SUPER DYNAMIC COOKING TIME!!!"
  • Chef of Iron: Type 1. He enters the tournament to find new recipe ideas.
  • Confusion Fu: El Fuerte has a normal move called Habanero Dash, where he runs towards you. Doesn't sound that bad, no? Well, this move has six different followup moves: evasive actions, high attacks, low attacks, air attacks, and throws. Given that they all start with that running animation, you might be realizing the big picture about now.
  • Cool Mask/Masked Luchador
  • Cordon Bleugh Chef: The opinions on his cooking are mixed throughout the series, but his ending is another story: He mixes Chanko stew and Borscht, Honda and Zangief's favorite national foods, trying to quell the argument between them as to whose dish is better. One bite and they're both blue in the face.
  • Fanboy: Of Rainbow Mika.
  • Fragile Speedster: A first for the series, as nearly all wrestling-themed characters are of the Mighty Glacier type.
  • Forgotten Childhood Friend: He only remembered his childhood friendship with T. Hawk after an insult-sparked brawl.
  • Frying Pan of Doom: Averted. He's shown wielding one in his fight intro, but he doesn't use it in battle.
  • Gratuitous English: In Japanese, he randomly shouts out English, despite being Mexican.
    • Makes sense, considering who his seiyuu is.
    • Gratuitous Spanish: In T. Hawk's rival match with him, El Fuerte drops an audible "amigo" in his opening line. El Fuerte's English VA, J.B. Blanc, adds a few more Spanish words to his dialogue. He even refers to Zangief (during their rival fight) by using the Spanish translation of Zangief's own Red Baron moniker: "Tornado Rojo."
  • Incoming Ham: See catchphrase, and his intro cinematic Big "OMG!" — over meal preparation.
  • Joke Character: In-universe. He's a lethal chef with no concept of good cooking (and that is sadly what drives his motivation to fight).
    • Lethal Joke Character: On the "joke" side, he's got ludicrous premises, hammy voice actors, comical-looking attacks with silly food-themed names — it's difficult to take him seriously. On the lethal side, he's got a level of mobility second only to Vega, an unpredictable array of attacks, rapid aerial defense, and high comboability. In the right hands, he's got quite a lot going for him.
  • Lethal Chef: Figuratively and literally. Chanko Stew + Borscht + a pinch of Chili Pepper = The taste that will send you straight to heaven.
    • His ending in SSFIV has his cooking assistants flat out asking if he really knows what the heck he's doing.
    • Subverted slightly, as he is very good at making Mexican dishes, but is played straight when he tries to cook anything else.
  • Loony Fan: Of R. Mika. In the UDON comics, when T. Hawk says R. Mika looks ridiculous, El Fuerte feels he has no choice but to start a fight over it.
  • Masked Luchador
  • Meaningful Name: "El Fuerte" is Spanish for "the Strong."
  • Red Baron: "The Hurricane of the Gulf of Mexico."
  • Shout-Out: The El Fuerte Ultra Spark. The finishing hold looks very much like the Muscle Spark.
  • Theme Naming: His attacks are named after Mexican food.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene
  • Wall Jumper

    Rufus - USA 

Voiced by: Wataru Hatano (Street Fighter IV, Street Fighter X Tekken; Japanese), Christopher Corey Smith (Street Fighter IV, Street Fighter X Tekken; English [as Chris Kent])
Candy voiced by: ? (Street Fighter IV; Japanese), Laura Bailey (Street Fighter IV; English)

A morbidly obese man who wants to fight Ken to prove that he is the number one fighter in the USA.

  • Acrofatic: It says something that Rufus has one of the highest jump arcs in the game. In addition, he is capable of cartwheels, pirouettes and Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: "You just can't compare!"
  • Big Eater
  • Big Fun
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Several characters comment on how surprisingly strong Rufus is, and fathom how powerful he could be if he just lost weight.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Some of his rants are really random, to say the least.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass
  • Eagleland: Loud, obnoxious, dumb, clinically obese, obsessed with sci-fi? Type 2 all the way.
  • Fat Idiot
  • Girlish Pigtails: In his alternate costume, whereas his normal outfit displays a single one.
  • Gonk
  • Hard Work Hardly Works: Subverted. At first glance, it looks like Rufus came up with his elaborate fighting techniques simply by watching kung-fu movies and eating like a pig. However, it's revealed that in order to refine his Kung Food, Rufus took on correspondence courses and later went to China to study under various masters.
  • Hot-Blooded
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Him and his girlfriend Candy.
  • I Know Mortal Kombat: The crux of his fighting style, as it is wholly based on things that he gleaned from watching martial arts flicks in his youth. Gets some credit because he traveled the world in order to sort out the reality from the fiction.
  • Jiggle Physics
  • Lampshade Hanging: Some of his quotes has him do this to certain characters, such as Chun-Li's hips or asking Seth what it's like being a robot.
  • Large Ham
  • Lethal Joke Character: He's considered one of the best characters in the game, and in Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition (Version 2012), Rufus is (still) a top pick for tournaments.
  • Lightning Bruiser: He seems to be quite similar to Tekken 6's Bob as an incredibly agile fat guy.
  • More than Meets the Eye
  • Motor Mouth
  • The Munchausen: Rants a lot in his winning quotes.
  • Oh Crap: He says this upon being KO'd.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: His Snake Strike.
  • Rescue Romance: How Candy became his girl, as implied in his exchange with Rose:
    Rufus: "I'll never forget when I first met my girl. It was a rainy day in October and I was on my way home from a fight. Suddenly, this chick came outta an' was all like 'Help!' I guess she pulled a dine an' dash, so I beat up the waiter that was chasin' after her!"
  • Seinfeldian Conversation: Many a player has read his win quotes (yes, it is possible) and thought, "What the heck is he talking about?" Check them.
    • Averted in SSFIV. He actually does stay on topic better, even if he goes off from time to time.
  • Shown Their Work: An in-universe example. Rufus watches a lot of movies, and when he wanted to become a fighter, he traveled around the world to confirm which techniques in movies can or cannot be performed, in the process becoming a formidable fighter that is very, very easy to underestimate.
  • Spin Attack: His Galactic Tornado.
    • Messiah Kick begins with a series of mid-air spins. More visible in the EX version where his spinning actually causes hits.
    • His second Ultra from SSFIV, Big Bang Tornado, is also this, mixed with Snake Strike and brought Up to Eleven.
  • Stout Strength
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Girlfriend: Rufus' girlfriend is a hot little number named Candy who thinks he's super awesome. Doubles as a Huge Guy, Tiny Girl couple.
  • Unknown Rival: Inverse example. He counts himself as Ken's rival, but doesn't know who Ken actually is, and mistakes every blond character for him. Then played straight, as Ken has no knowledge of his existence prior to their match.
    • He mistakes Cammy for Ken, because of her hair color. Even besides the no pants, different appearance, and being female thing, you'd think he'd keep both hair color and length in mind.
    • He mistakes Makoto for Ken, because she uses a gi and goes barefoot. Try and top that.
    • This even goes beyond universe - in one of the trailers for Street Fighter X Tekken, he mistakes Bob for Ken, because he is blonde and wears red. It gets even more amusing when he goes flying past Ken himself later on in the trailer.
  • Unreliable Voice Over: He narrates his long road to becoming such a formidable fighter in the UDON comics... except when he talks about his tireless effort we see him watching TV late at night and eating like a pig. Though it's subverted when we're shown him jogging with two motorcycles strapped to his back.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Though he's not too fond of doing so.
    Rufus: "I don't get my jollies beatin' up on schoolkids, alright? This is a tournament an' I was just followin' the rules is all."
  • X Meets Y: Looks like Alexander The Grater in Lien Neville's leotard.

    Gouken - Japan 
"No illusion is safe when bathed in the pure light of the moon. Now is the time to test your strength!"

Voiced by: Tōru Ōkawa (Street Fighter IV; Japanese), Rod Clarke (Street Fighter IV; English)

Gouken is the master of Ryu and Ken and Akuma's older brother; he trained with Akuma under Goutetsu until Akuma killed their master in a Duel to the Death. Gouken refined the special techniques from the assassination art taught to him by Master Goutetsu into a non-lethal martial art, then passed on his knowledge to Ryu and Ken. He was believed to be dead, but he managed to survive his battle with Akuma by using the Power of Nothingness — which empties the mind and soul of all thought and sin — to render the Shun Goku Satsu useless. As a side effect, however, he was rendered unconscious for several years. Gouken now hopes to reunite with his pupils and test their strength.

    Seth - S.I.N 
"Do not grieve. Your data will reside in me for eternity."

Voiced by: Akio Ohtsuka (Street Fighter IV, Project X Zone; Japanese), Michael McConnohie (Street Fighter IV; English'')

Seth is the CEO of S.I.N, the (former) weapons division of Shadaloo. Seth modified his own body to include a S.I.N invention known as the Tanden Engine; the device is used to help Seth assimilate the abilities of anyone he fights. Seth also created the BLECE Project, which relies on ki to create super-soldiers (in this case, the Ki Seth uses is the Satsui no Hadou); he sees Ryu as the "ultimate test subject" and desires his untapped Satsui no Hadou to complete the BLECE project. Seth has another goal in mind, as well: surpassing his creator, M. Bison, before destroying him once and for all.

Debuting in Super Street Fighter IV

    Juri - South Korea 
"Hmm... You look like you're in good shape..."

Voiced by: Eri Kitamura (Super Street Fighter IV, Street Fighter X Tekken, Project X Zone; Japanese), Jessica Straus (Super Street Fighter IV, Street Fighter X Tekken; English)

Her full name is Juri Han, and her codename is "Spider"; she is a Taekwondo prodigy from South Korea who serves as an agent of S.I.N. She is testing out one of S.I.N's most advanced pieces of technology: a cybernetic eye implant known as the Feng Shui Engine. The implant, which a smaller version of Seth's Tanden Engine, takes ki energy from the surrounding nature and feeds it to the Engine's user to heighten their abilities and make them more powerful. Juri pledges loyalty to Seth in exchange for the "new toy", then enters the new Street Fighter tournament to test her new abilities... and further her own dark agendas. Juri is a dangerous, hedonistic sociopath who likes to taunt her opponents — and she doesn't care about anything but satisfying her dangerous whims.

    Hakan - Turkey 
"Looks like it's time to oil up!"

Voiced by: Shintarou Oohata (Super Street Fighter IV; Japanese), Lance Holt (Super Street Fighter IV; English)

The other new character introduced in Super Street Fighter IV line-up. He is stated to be the Turkish CEO of a cooking oil company, and a practitioner of the national sport of Yagli Gures otherwise known as oil-wrestling. His in-game self reflects this with lots of oiled-up grappling and even a move that has him apply more oil to his body, powering up his moves for a short time and making him faster.

  • Absurdly Youthful Mother: His wife. She has a fairly petite build, despite having given birth to seven daughters.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Tomato red skin, sky blue hair(?).
    • There's an explanation for that: Hakan stays oiled up all the time. Turkey is a sunny place. What does Oil + Sunhine create? At first, a tan. But Hakan did go beyond that. Ken even notes that he "looks a little crisp." The hair is probably blue because he uses oil for that, too and they didn't want to give him black hair.
    • In reference to his hair—the appearance of Hakan's hair is a pun, as he is Turkish and the Japanese word for Turkey is "Toruko", his hair resembles stone and the Japanese word for stone is "Ishi", and his hair color is turquoise and the Japanese word for turquoise is "Toruko Ishi". This holds true for European languages as well: the English word turquoise comes from the Old French turqueise which literally means "Turkish [stone]".
  • Animal Motifs: Both his beltbuckle and the barrel that he uses to "oil up" seems to share the same leonine theme.
  • Anime Hair: His hair is curled into very short ringlets that look like giant barnacles. In one of his taunts, he expresses concern that his opponent will mess it up. His daughters appear to have inherited this style, or at least style it like their father.
  • Badass Mustache
  • Bear Hug: One of his special grabs. (However, because he is slippery, the opponent flies off instead of getting crushed.)
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Very much so.
  • Catch Phrase: "Looks like it's time to oil up!"
  • Cheshire Cat Grin: In his versus silhouette.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: Seems so. While he loves and cares for his wife and daughters, he's rather pleasant to the major part of the Action Girls in the cast (barring Viper and Juri), if his post-battle lines are signs.
  • Cultured Badass: In his own Turkish cultured way, he's pretty refined as well.
  • Doting Parent: Implied in his first line in his character trailer.
    • Confirmed in his ending, when the seven little girls come greet him and Hakan is quite happy to see them.
  • Everybody Knew Already: Despite Capcom's best efforts to keep him under wraps before his planned debut, he was mentioned as far back as September '09 when details of the game first emerged.
  • Expecting Someone Taller: C. Viper almost says this word-for-word.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry
  • Friend to All Children
  • Gentle Giant
  • Happily Married: And he's got the multitude of daughters to prove it!
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Him and his as yet unnamed wife.
  • I Have a Family: A wife and septuplet daughters, to be specific.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Seems to be this based on gameplay videos.
  • Monochromatic Eyes
  • Murderous Thighs
  • Nice Hat: In one of his alternate costumes, he wears a classic turkish Fez.
  • Pre-Asskicking One-Liner: "Looks like it's time to oil up!"
  • Remember the New Guy: Hakan and E. Honda are old friends, to the point where the former casually calls the later "Edmond". SSFIV marks Hakan's debut in the Street Fighter continuity. Also both of their fighting styles are similar.
  • Slippery Skid: His oiled-up body allows him slide along the floor into opponents.
  • The Idiot from Ankara: He speaks in Kansai-ben in the Japanese version, despite being Turkish. In the English version, he speaks with a thick Turkish accent instead.
  • There Are No Good Executives: Averted.
  • Theme Naming: Hakan's every single Special, Super or Ultra move has the word "oil" in it. No idea why.
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: His official art, in addition to showing his seven daughters, has a pretty woman in the background that is his wife.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: A rather odd case. Most characters in Street Fighter who are clearly human in appearance run the entire gamut of naturally occurring hair colors. Hakan's is turquoise colored, probably as a result of oils. But when you look at his seven kids, it could be hereditary.

Debuting in Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition

    Oni - ??? 
"I shall grind beneath my heel... all that exists."

Voiced by: Taketora (Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition; Japanese), Dave Mallow (Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition; English)

His full title is Kuruoshiki Oni ("Mad Demon"). This is the form Akuma takes when he reaches the absolute peak of his training; all of Akuma's remaining humanity is consumed in full by the Satsui no Hadou and he becomes a demon, although Oni views himself as transcending gods. Now that he has reached the peak of the Satsui no Hadou, he decides to destroy the world... possibly out of boredom.

  • Amazing Technicolor Population
  • Battle Aura: Oni has a purple one, to be exact.
  • Battle in the Center of the Mind/Enemy Within/Enemy Without/Your Mind Makes It Real: Akuma and Oni's quote for one another confirm that Oni plays this role to Akuma, as Oni represents the one thing Akuma doesn't want to become (luckily, as canon dictates, Akuma being consumed by the Satsui no Hadou will most likely never come to pass, if III is any indication).
  • Beating A Dead Player: The only character in IV to directly interact with the opponent during their win screen pose, Oni grabs his defeated challenger by the head/neck and slams them face-first into the screen, presumably killing them. That last part happens just off-screen, of course.
  • Bonus Boss: Oni appears as a secret boss by completing Arcade Mode under certain conditions, namely not losing a round, getting two Perfects, five Super or Ultra combo finishes, ten first attacks, and defeating Seth with a Super or Ultra combo.
    • True Final Boss: Oni falls into this, considering he's stronger than Akuma, Gouken, and Evil Ryu combined.
      • Evil Ryu and Oni appear to be rivals of sorts. So it's likely give and take with their power levels. Both are off the charts and by far the most powerful in the cast.
      • SNK Boss: Oni's A.I. is also harder than the aforementioned characters. He has more vitality and stun than the playable version and his moves are altered (for example, all of his chargeable moves are fully charged when he uses them).
      • Although the bonus boss doesn't get nearly as many complaints as Seth does. Evil Ryu is actually easier to abuse due to his ability to cancel his teleport into anything at any time. Capcom has long made the boss characters different than playable characters (Shin Akuma, Shin Bison, etc). Evil Ryu and Oni are seen to be rivals of sorts and are somewhat comparable in power, Super Saiyan Aura and all.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: He flat-out says that he's evil in his intro.
  • Charged Attack: His Gohadoken. The more it's charged, the farther it goes.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: His voice is the same as Akuma's, but distorted even more by Power Echoes. Averted in the English version, where even with the Power Echoes his voice is surprisingly tenor.
  • Flat Character: He's evil and... yeah, that's pretty much it.
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation: Regular Akuma is higher on the tier list than Oni is.
    • Although it could be not entirely a lie. Oni seems to be incapable of fully controlling his power like Akuma. We have also seen that he required a lot of effort to do a task (blow up a volcano) that Akuma would do in a bigger scale without much effort
  • Ground Pound: This happens at the beginning of his Ultra II and his Sekisei Jiraiken special move.
  • Kneel Before Zod: His taunt orders the opponent to do so.
  • Obviously Evil
  • One-Winged Angel/Superpowered Evil Side: Is this to Akuma.
  • Power Limiter: Word of God is that the playable version of Oni is being held back by remnants of Akuma's will, and that the True Final Boss‎ version of him, "Shin Oni", is not.
  • The Rival: To Asura in Lost Episode 2, where Akuma apparently somehow learned to control this form and use it at will without losing himself completely.
    • Given the situation, the transformation was more of a last resort. Still, it shows that he has some semblance of control this time around.
    • His rivalry with Ryu carries over from whatever little part of Akuma is left in him. Oni even seems pleased that Ryu's finally given into the Satsui no Hadou if you face him with Evil Ryu. Oni is also intrigued by the power/potential of certain characters and seeks to test them in a Worthy Opponent-like manner; most notably, Oni remarks that if Cody were to stop voluntarily holding himself back by wearing those handcuffs, he'd prove to be quite the challenge.
  • Say My Name: His Ultra activation quote in his Rival Battle against Gouken has Oni furiously belting out the name of his nemesis at the top of his lungs. Nothing more would probably suffice.
  • Super Mode: During several of his Supers, Oni turns jet black with glowing eyes and hair and Volcanic Veins on his fists and arms.
  • Third-Person Person: Oni speaks this way in some of his winquotes.

Debuting in Ultra Street Fighter IV

    Poison - USA 

Voiced by: Atsuko Tanaka (Third Strike, Street Fighter X Tekken, Ultra Street Fighter IV; Japanese), Karen Strassman (Street Fighter X Tekken, Ultra Street Fighter IV; English)

Poison is an ex-member of the Mad Gear gang, and currently acts as the manager of Hugo Andore. Despite her managerial duties, she herself is a quite a capable fighter. She and Hugo enter the tournament in 3rd Strike to promote their wrestling stable, the Huge Wrestling Army (or H.W.A.).

She has appeared as a background character in the Alpha games, as well as in Hugo's winposes and endings, but it wasn't until Street Fighter X Tekken that she finally became a playable character. And now, Poison finally makes her true debut into the main Street Fighter series proper, as a brand-new character introduced in the upcoming 2014 update, along with Hugo, Elena, Rolento, and Decapre.

     Decapre - Russia 

"Execute."

Voiced by: Miyuki Sawashiro (Japanese), Caitlin Glass (English)

One of Bison's Dolls. While Juri ended up severely crippling the majority of the Dolls, Bison managed to keep at least one of them still active. Decapre's motives are unclear. She works under Bison's direct orders like the rest of the Dolls, and it is hinted that she is searching for Cammy as one of her targets. She also has memories of the scary childhood of growing up as a lab experiment.

  • Ascended Extra: Her first appearance was in Street Fighter Alpha 3 during the boss fight introduction against Juli and Juni.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: She has a retractable blade in each of her gauntlets.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: She's been heavily conditioned from birth to be an assassin and only follow Bison's orders.
  • Charged Attack: The "Hold" variety like most other characters in the series. She seems to be a Charged Attack version of Cammy.
  • Cool Mask: Has had two different types of metallic mask amongst her appearances, one which covers her face entirely and one which exposes her mouth and nose.
  • Cloning Blues: She's a clone of Cammy, but unlike Cammy, is still under Bison's manipulation. If Capcom takes anything from her character in the Udon comics (as they have done for other characters), then she's actually a failed prototype of Cammy.
  • Clothes Make the Maniac: The black mask on her face is certainly sinister looking, but it's unknown if it serves any combat purposes. In the Udon comics, half of her face is horribly burned and scarred.
    • The pre-production art that Capcom released shows that she's scarred here as well.
  • Energy Ball: Her Psycho Stream Ultra fires a large slow-moving one.
  • Flash Step: Has couple of teleporting moves which is accomplished with this.
  • Knife Nut: Uses claws like Vega, except these ones are retractable.
  • Moveset Clone: Averted, she only retains a couple of special attacks from Cammy, both of which she uses very differently. Her Cannon Drill is not only now a charge move, but it can ony be done in the air (while Cammy can only do hers on the ground). Meanwhile, her Cannon Strike is now a follow up to her new Scramble teleport move (whereas Cammy could do it anytime on jump in).
  • Theme Naming: Decapre is Russian for "December", going along with the names of all the other dolls. However, the proper romanization of the Russian word is "Dekabr", not "Decapre" (which is likely just a phonetic spelling), and her name should be properly said "dee-KAH-br", not "de-CAP-ree".
  • Wrestler in All of Us: As a Cammy clone, she naturally has her German Suplex and Frankensteiner grabs.
