Introduced in Street Fighter II
Arroyo Hawk - Mexico
T. Hawk's father, and the leader of the Thunderfoot Tribe, who was killed by M. Bison 30 years ago, eventually forcing the Thunderfoot tribe off of their land.
- All There in the Manual: Being dead, he's never made a physical appearance in the series, and it wasn't until the Street Fighter V Character Reference, nearly 18 years after he was first mentioned, that he would gain an official design.
- Animal Motif: The hawk, just like his son.
- Does Not Like Shoes
- Large and in Charge: He was the chief of the Thunderfoot tribe, and was 6' 11" (212 cm), almost as tall as his son.
- Posthumous Character: M. Bison killed Arroyo many years before the start of the series.
Dorai - China
Voiced by: note
Chun-Li's father. He was supposedly killed by Shadaloo, but his body has never been found, leaving his fate unknown. Back when he was still around, he worked alongside Chun-Li as an Interpol agent. He was also good friends with Gen.
- Badass Mustache: In the UDON comics, Street Fighter II V and even the American cartoon. Though Masaomi Kanzaki's manga shows him clean-faced during Chun-Li's flashbacks to her childhood.
- Canon Immigrant: Not the character itself but his name. It comes from the Street Fighter II V series.
- Disappeared Dad: He's heavily implied to have died, but his body has never been found. Vega enjoys toying with Chun-Li over her father, implying that he knows something more about him.
- Never Found the Body: What exactly happened to Dorai's body is a mystery.
- Posthumous Character: He's been dead/missing since the beginning of the series. He's only ever made an in-game appearance in Gen's prologue in the original Street Fighter IV.
E. Honda’s Disciples - Japan
Four young sums featured in Honda’s ending. Their names are Hatonoyama, Marunoumi, Yasuhanada, and Nishinofuji
Eliza Masters - USA
"No matter how old you two get, it never ends."
Voiced by: note
Ken's wife, and the mother of their son, Mel. The two of them originally met in the Alpha series, and got married in II. IV has Eliza pregnant, and she eventually gives birth to their son Mel. In V, she's accompanying Ken and Mel to a Street Fighter tournament being held by Karin, and she's apparently opened an organic cafe in New York. She also happens to be the younger sister of Guile's wife, Jane, making Ken and Guile brothers-in-law.
- Armor-Piercing Question: In Alpha, she catches Ken's attention not just for her nice looks, but for introducing herself through one of these:"You fight well, but what are you fighting for? Money, fame, the attention...?"
- Boy Meets Girl: Ken's Alpha I ending shows how they met.
- Damsel out of Distress: She attempts this against Vega before being saved by Ken, delivering a slap straight to Vega's face. However, considering that this is Vega we're talking about, that just plunged her into more danger.
- Distress Ball: Gets handed a big one in The Ties That Bind, thanks to Crimson Viper.
- Fan Disservice: She's a very pretty woman with a rather large chest, but in the UDON comics her boobs are on display when she's about to be murdered by Vega.
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She's a blonde and quite the Nice Girl.
- Happily Married: To Ken Masters, from II on.
- Ms. Fanservice: Plays this role in the UDON comics, where she's given a lot of Male Gaze shots and wears more skimpy outfits. She also has a phone call with Ken where she talks about buying some lacy lingerie, making it rather obvious that the two were gonna do it when Ken got there. Then Vega had to show up and ruin it by trying to kill her and Ken.
- Plucky Girl: She's a non-fighter in a World of Badass, but save for one or two distress balls she handles herself more or less well.
- Violently Protective Girlfriend: Briefly does so in The Ties that Bind, using a baseball bat to attack a mook that was about to hit Ken In the Back.
- Wet Blanket Wife: Mostly averted, though she did play it straight for a while in the UDON comic.
- Woman in White: In SVC Chaos, when Ken wakes up from his Brainwashed and Crazy stunt as Violent Ken, Eliza shows up in a white sundress to take him home.
- Women Are Wiser: Specially in IV, where she's a lot calmer than her husband.
George Ginzu - Singapore
Delta Red's resident computer expert, able to hack into enemy databases. Riding on his head is a small spy known as Oracle.
- Adapted Out: The Street Fighter cartoon series had Delta Red's members replaced by characters that were clearly inspired by the originals, but obviously weren't the same thing. Wolfman was replaced by Burke, Lita was replaced by Celia, and McCoy was replaced by Rory. George, however, didn't even get his own replacement.
- Aerith and Bob: His name and Lita Luwanda's stood out compared to the more English sounding "Keith Wolfman" and "Matthew McCoy", until it was revealed that not every Delta Red squad member is English. George is actually from Singapore.
- Alliterative Name: George Ginzu.
- Oculothorax: George has a little Blob Monster with a single eye named Oracle that appears to be some kind of alien creature or Do-Anything Robot.
- Playful Hacker: He's a computer genius and can hack into enemy computer systems, but he also looks significantly younger and more playful than any of the other squad members.
- The Smart Guy
Gorbachev - Russia
"Comrade Zangief, you have made your country proud and shown that the our country's spirit can overcome all obstacles."
The president of Russia himself, who congratulates Zangief on his victory in his ending in Street Fighter II.
- Distinguishing Mark: He has a birthmark on his head just like the real Gorbachev, but this time it's unambiguously in the shape of the hammer and sickle.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: He's former Russian leader Mikhail Gorbachev, though with a few differences, due to references to the Soviet Union being removed from later versions of Street Fighter II. Also, he's only called "Great Leader" in-game (in Japanese, Erai Hito, lit. "Great Person").
- Retired Badass: He apparently used to be an undefeated wrestler in his youth, but went into politics after graduating.
- That Russian Squat Dance: Celebrates with Zangief this way.
Jane & Amy - USA
"If you're ready to come back to us, we're ready to forgive you."
Guile's wife and daughter, with whom he became estranged due to his obsession in avenging Charlie's supposed death by Bison's hands. Jane is actually the older sister of Eliza Masters, making Guile and Ken brothers-in-law.
- Dub Name Change: Amy is known as Chris in Japan.
- Girls Love Stuffed Animals: Amy is presumably a teenager by the time of V, but she still loves stuffed animals, and is depicted holding a teddy bear.
- If You Kill Him, You Will Be Just Like Him: They pull this on Guile, urging him not to kill M. Bison. It's only in the Turbo HD Remix ending that Guile realizes this by himself.
- Long-Distance Relationship: They're just pen pals, but Amy is actually good friends with Dhatta, Dhalsim's son. It's a plot point, since Dhatta comments on some things that Amy has told him about her dad's work and Dhalsim realizes something wrong is about to happen.
- One Steve Limit: Originally, Jane's name was Julia, the same as the real name of Juli and a few minor characters.
- When You Coming Home, Dad?: Because of Guile's near-constant fight for justice in order to avenge Charlie and take down Shadaloo, his family is often left worried about him, and want nothing more than for him to come home and be a family man again.
Keith Wolfman - England
Voiced by: note
The leader of Cammy's Delta Red squad. He was the one who originally found Cammy after her time at Shadaloo was over, and took her in as a special forces operative.
Lita Luwanda - Mozambique
Delta Red's short-ranged weapons expert, handy with numerous blades and knives.
- Aerith and Bob: Her name and George Ginzu's stood out compared to the more English sounding "Keith Wolfman" and "Matthew McCoy", until it was revealed that not every Delta Red squad member is English. Lita is from Mozambique (despite her being white and blonde, which is highly unnatural for most African countries above South Africanote ).
- Alliterative Name: Lita Luwanda.
- Amazonian Beauty: She has an even more toned body than Cammy, and is taller to boot.
- BFS: Her Weapon of Choice.
- Cool Big Sis: Lita thinks of Cammy like a younger sister.
- Fashionable Asymmetry: Lita's combat uniform. It's similar to Cammy's, but hers has a single pant leg, while Cammy's has none.
- The Lad-ette: Lita is apparently foul-mouthed and dislikes formalities.
- The Lancer
- Rapunzel Hair: Her hair extends down to her rear, although her original Street Fighter II design had it even longer, down to the back of her knees.
- She's Got Legs: She ends up teasing McCoy when she catches him looking at them in one of the UDON comics.
Matthew McCoy - England
Delta Red's long-ranged weapons expert, proficient with guns and firearms.
- Alliterative Name: Matthew McCoy
- BFG: McCoy uses a gatling gun, and can use it single-handed.
- The Big Guy
- Cyborg: The right side of his head is mechanical, and he also has a cybernetic right arm.
- Race Lift: The Street Fighter V Character Reference depicts him as black, when he was originally white in Street Fighter II and the UDON comics.
- Stout Strength: McCoy is a bit chunky, but it's balanced out by his sheer height and muscle power.
- Supreme Chef: McCoy is a master chef.
Sally & Dhatta - India
Dhalsim's wife and son.
- Big Eater: Dhatta isn't a yoga master like his father, and eats a lot more than him or his mother. Despite this, he's extremely skinny in his appearance in IV. Inverted with Sally, who is able to go for long periods of time without eating.
- Depending on the Artist: Dhatta looks significantly different in the games he appears in, partially due to him getting older as the series goes on. He's a newborn baby in the Alpha series, and in II he's grown into a young boy with a turban. In IV, however, he looks a lot different, as he's now bald and severely skinny, kind of like his father. He's back to having hair again in V.
- Does Not Like Shoes: Dhatta is generally shown to go barefoot, while Sally wears sandals.
- Long-Distance Relationship: Dhatta is pen pals with Guile's daughter, Amy, though it's not a romantic relationship.
- Multi-Ethnic Name: Sally isn't exactly a name you'd hear a lot in India.
- Her name is supposed to be Sari, which is basically the Indian version of "Sally", but this got Lost in Translation somehow.
- May–December Romance: Sally is about 16 years old in Alpha 2, and Dhalsim is middle-aged for most of the series, and is growing a long grey beard in V.
- Single Woman Seeks Good Man: Dhalsim is a very wise Nice Guy, Sally surely knows that better than anyone save for Dhatta.
- Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome: Dhatta ages rather quickly from game to game. He's a baby in Alpha 2, then a young boy in II, but then he suddenly looks about 10 in IV.
- Supreme Chef: Sally is known for her amazing cooking, especially her curry.
- Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: Sometimes, due to their age difference and Dhalsim's less than handsome features. It really depends on who's the artist in charge, however. The Street Fighter World Warrior Encyclopedia even states "some would say Sally is out of Dhalsim's league."
Samantha - Brazil
"Oh, Jimmy! I just love spending time with you! It makes me so happy!"
Blanka's long lost mother. After young Jimmy's plane crashed, the two were separated for many years, until the Street Fighter tournament finally brought the two back together.
- Depending on the Artist: Her appearance varies in each game. In the original Street Fighter II, she was a relatively short old lady. In the HD Remix, she looked younger, but much more portly. IV made her old again, but made her a bit taller, with much longer hair. The UDON comics also waffled with her appearance, sometimes making her look like her IV appearance, and sometimes making her look very old, gray hair and all.
- Good Parents: She's a really sweet lady and she adores her son no matter what.
- Freakiness Shame: Averted. She feels no shame that her son is a green beast man, and she tries to get him to go out and make friends.
- Missing Mom: She was one to Blanka for a long time, until she saw him competing in the tournament, and recognized the anklet she gave him when he was a baby.
Scott & Max - USA
Those two guys you see fighting in the intro to Street Fighter II.
- All There in the Manual: They've never made an appearance outside the Street Fighter II intro, until Capcom wrote up bios about them.
- Bald of Awesome: Max, in his Street Fighter V redesign.
- The Cameo: Max makes an appearance in Street Fighter V, where he is shown losing a match against Alex. He also appears in the background of Balrog's Casino stage.
- Identical Stranger: Scott looks exactly like Cody before he went to prison.
- Mythology Gag: Max's story mode contribution is getting knocked out by Alex. The only other thing Max is known for in the series is getting knocked out by Scott in the intro to Street Fighter II.
- No Name Given: Not until the release of the Street Fighter V Character Reference, which made lots of players think they were Joe and Mike.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Max's backstory is very similar to Balrog's and Mike's, all of them being African-American boxers with troubled pasts. Scott is also visually identical to Cody, and also has a nearly identical backstory, to the point where his bio ends with the statement "He is not Cody."
- Tattooed Crook: Max, in his Street Fighter V redesign.
Introduced in Street Fighter Alpha
Bob - Jamaica
Dee Jay’s agent representing Jamaican Music Promotions. They met shortly after the events of Alpha 3 where Bob was impressed with his singing ability and signed Dee Jay to the label.
- Affectionate Gesture to the Head: The recipient of a hard Noogie after and overjoyed Dee Jay found out that he was to have his music produced by JMP.
- Cool Shades: Wears red-rimmed sunglasses with pointed edges.
- Token White: Implied to be Jamaican, a country that’s primarily populated with black people.
The Dolls - Various / Shadaloo
Cammy: "No choice... I must face my past dead on... I have to save you all... No turning back."
Voiced by: note
A group of twelve young women kidnapped by Shadaloo from around the world, brainwashed, and put to work as special agents. Originally lead by Cammy, her main goal has been to free the others ever since her escape from Shadaloo.
- Alternate Company Equivalent: They're conceptually very similar to the Jellyfish Pirates from the Guilty Gear series, both of them being groups of women with names themed around months of the year.
- Amazon Brigade
- An Axe to Grind: Noembelu carries a pair of tomahawks.
- Bare Your Midriff: As of Street Fighter V, the Dolls now have slight variations on their uniforms. This is how Enero differentiates herself from the rest, plus a plaited skirt and tights.
- Beauty Mark: März has one on her right cheek beneath her lips.
- Berserk Button: Satsuki gets incredibly upset when her sword is broken. The Dolls also have a literal berserk button, in the form of a skull-shaped device in F.A.N.G's possession.
- Blade on a Stick: Santamu's weapon.
- Bodyguard Babes: Most notably, Juli and Juni, who fight the player in Bison's stead in Alpha 3.
- Braids of Action: Several of the Dolls sport this hairstyle, like Jianyu, Decapre and Noembelu.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: All of them were kidnapped, brainwashed, and trained to kill. Only one of the Dolls' past identities is made clear, though. In T.Hawk's story in Alpha 3, Juli is revealed to be T. Hawk's missing friend Julia, who is apparently a member of his tribe as well.
- The girl T. Hawk is searching for was originally meant to be Noembelu, a Native American member of the Dolls whose name comes from November (v being pronounced as a w). When they added T. Hawk to the console ports, instead of making Noembelu into a playable character as well, they simply shoehorned Juli into his in-game story. Noembelu is the one with the tomahawk in this artwork◊.
- In UDON's Street Fighter Comic-Book Adaptation, T. Hawk actually searches for both, Noembelu and Julia, with Julia being the missing daughter of a German doctor who once lived with the Thunderfoot tribe and was murdered some time ago, probably by Shadaloo when they came to abduct Juli.
- In Street Fighter V, all of them are freed of their brainwashing after the device controlling them is destroyed.
- Brilliant, but Lazy: Jianyu is stated to be an amazing fighter, but also lazy and rather disobedient.
- Carry a Big Stick: Jianyu uses a quarter-staff as her weapon.
- Cool Big Sis: Aprile, the oldest of the dolls, acts as one towards the others.
- Cool Shades: Février sports a pair of light blue safety glasses in V.
- Cleavage Window: Aprile's outfit has one.
- Cloning Blues: With the exception of Decapre, averted. Unlike Cammy, they're not clones. They've just been kidnapped all over the world.
- Dangerously Short Skirt: Aprile's outfit is a skirted variant of their uniform.
- Divergent Character Evolution: Originally they were identical besides their heads and weapons, but by V each is wearing a distinct Non-Uniform Uniform. This also seems to have extended to their personalities as well. Originally, they all behaved like robotic soldiers, completely lacking any emotion. Now they not only dress differently, but they seem to have retained whatever personality they had before they were brainwashed, even though they still serve Shadaloo.
- Emotionless Girl: They give off this vibe as a whole, even often speaking in a faux-Robot Girl fashion. Sometimes the brainwashing falters, though, as Cammy and Decapre can attest. Their robotic nature seems to have been removed in Street Fighter V, where they now have their own individual personalities.
- Eyepatch of Power: Aprile wears an eyepatch with a heart on it.
- Fighting with Chucks: Xiayu's weapon of choice.
- Firing in the Air a Lot: Février does this in the Shadaloo Base stage in V, firing into the air as she excitedly watches the fight.
- French Jerk: She is brainwashed, to be fair, but Février comes across as one in her fight against Birdie. She acts much more aggressive than the other Dolls, and calls him both a "fat pig" and a "fat sack of merde", and this is before F.A.N.G hits the Doll's literal Berserk Button.
- Friend to All Living Things: Santamu loves animals, and always keeps her pet monkey Kiki close by. She also refuses to harm animals, even if they come from a force that opposes Shadaloo.
- Gun Fu: Février uses this when you fight her in Street Fighter V's story mode.
- Give 'em a Normal Life: What Cammy intends to do for them. At least with Juni, her efforts are going somewhere. After the device used by F.A.N.G to make them go berserk is broken, all of them are freed from their brainwashing, and will now be able to live normal lives...except März.
- Heroic Sacrifice: After the Dolls have had their brainwashing erased, März attacks F.A.N.G in order to save Rashid, and causes both her and F.A.N.G to plummet from the control room. F.A.N.G survives the fall, but März is never seen after that.
- I Call It "Vera": Satsuki calls her katana "Murasame".
- Katanas Are Just Better: Satsuki's weapon of choice.
- Kill the Cutie: März, the shyest of the dolls, is the only one to die after their brainwashing is erased, in a Heroic Sacrifice to save Rashid.
- Malevolent Masked Woman: Decapre and, as of V, Xiayu and Satsuki.
- Meganekko: März.
- More Dakka: Février makes full use of submachine guns, shotguns and grenades.
- Moveset Clone: Most of the dolls are fought during the cinematic story in Street Fighter V, and their movesets are identical to Cammy's, but with additional special moves unique to each of them.
- Enero can use her megaphone to let out a sound-based projectile.
- Février uses her guns in battle.
- März whacks the opponent over the head with a laptop.
- Aprile squirts poison out of a syringe, with the same effect as F.A.N.G's poison.
- Satsuki has sword-based moves.
- Santamu can throw spears, as well as spin one over hear head as an anti-air attack.
- Multi-Ethnic Name: Santamu's name is a variation on the Vietnamese word for August, "Tháng Tám", though she's apparently from Ethiopia.
- Nice Shoes: In V, Aprile is shown wearing cute Mary Jane-type shoes.
- Ninja: Satsuki's redesign for V strongly evokes the concept.
- Noblewoman's Laugh: Enero, at the same level as Karin.
- Palette Swap: They all were headswaps of each other at first. Not until V they would get Custom Uniforms to further differentiate them.
- Qipao: Jianyu wears a blue and yellow one in V, showcasing her nice legs.
- The Quiet One: Noembelu.
- Sexy Backless Outfit: Their normal uniforms, until V.
- She's Got Legs: They all do, but as of V, Santamu's outfit actually bares them in the same way as Cammy's leotard.
- Shrinking Violet: März is shown to be extremely timid.
- Sibling Team: Xiayu and Jianyu are sisters.
- Significant Birth Date: All of them were conveniently born in the month that they're named after.
- The Stoic: Satsuki is extremely serious, even for a member of the dolls.
- Symbol Motif Clothing: Aprile, as of V, has a heart motif, fitting with her theme of being the medic of the dolls. She has a heart on her eyepatch, as well as hearts on her medical supplies.
- Team Pet: Kiki, Santamu's monkey.
- Theme Naming: They're all named after a month of the year in their respective language.
- Enero (January) - Spain. Speciality is communications, carries a megaphone called "Silver Afternoon".
- Février (February) - France. Speciality is fire-arms.
- März (March) - German. Speciality is info gathering, and carries a laptop.
- Aprile (April) - Italy. Speciality is medicine. She has a younger brother named Maggio (May), who befriends Rose while searching for her.
- Satsuki (May) - Japan, Satsuki is the archaic Japanese name for May. Speciality is fighting with a katana.
- Juni (June) - German.
- Juli (July) - German.
- Santamu (August) - Vietnamese name, though she's apparently from Ethiopia. Speciality is fighting with a spear. Has a golden lion tamarin monkey named Kiki.
- Xiayu (September) - China. Speciality is fighting with nunchakus.
- Jianyu (October) - China. Speciality is fighting with a quarter-staff.
- Noembelu (November) - Native American. Speciality is fighting with twin hatchets.
- Decapre (December) - Russian.
- The Unfought: A lot of the dolls are fought in Street Fighter V except for Juni (Having already been rehabilitated), Xiayu, Jianyu, and Noembelu.
- Villainous Friendship: Even in their brainwashed state, the Dolls seem to genuinely care about each other. When März was held captive in the Kanzuki Estate with Birdie looking over her, Aprile bursts in, knocks Birdie away, and immediately begins asking März if she's okay.
- Voice Changeling: Enero is apparently capable of this, and demonstrates it by mimicking Karin's laughter.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: März is never shown or mentioned again after her Heroic Sacrifice to both save Rashid and kill F.A.N.G, who survives long enough to see Bison's death, leaving no definitive answer as to whether the fall killed her, F.A.N.G killed her, or if she survived.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: März has blue hair, and Enero has bright pink hair.
- Youthful Freckles: Enero has them.
Edi. E - USA
Voiced by: note
Edi. E is an officer for the Metro City PD who was on Mad Gear's payroll. After he was defeated by Cody, Edi. E was one of the lucky few to escape prosecution and retaining his job. Edi. E grew to hate Cody and when he broke out of jail in Street Fighter Alpha 3, Edi. E is seen trying to apprehend him and send him back to jail.
- Acrofatic: Pretty fast for a guy his size, he can almost catch Cody...almost.
- Anti-Villain: As a police officer, he's doing his job and trying to capture an escaped convict. However, he's not doing it because of the law, but because he hates Cody.
- The Cameo: Chases Cody in Street Fighter Alpha 3 in one of his win poses after his escape from prison. Even earlier still he's in the background of Guy's stage in Alpha 2.
- Carpet of Virility: As of his Street Fighter V concept art, though he's always been hairy in Final Fight.
- Dirty Cop: One of the bosses of the first Final Fight games as a member of Mad Gear.
- Firing in the Air a Lot: While in pursuit of Cody, he fires off a round of ammo in the air. It doesn't get Cody to stop and he's not shooting at Cody, so he's pretty much wasting bullets.
- Race Lift: Capcom can't seem to decide on what his skin color is. In the original Final Fight, he's Ambiguously Brown. Then in Alpha 3, he was white. Then in Final Fight Revenge, he's black. As of Street Fighter V, he's white again.
Gou Hibiki - Japan
"If you want anything from me, you'll have to take it by force."
Dan Hibiki's deceased father, and the reason Sagat has to wear an eyepatch. He was killed by an enraged Sagat after said eye injury, resulting in Dan's pursuit of revenge.
- Action Dad: Unlike his son Dan, Gou was quite the fighter. Again, Sagat wouldn't need an eyepatch if it weren't for him.
- Ascended Extra: He becomes one in the UDON comics, where his battle against Sagat is actually shown. He also appears in Super Gem Fighter in several of Dan's moves, where he's been given a long nose and red skin a la Mr. Karate.
- Badass Mustache
- Big Ol' Eyebrows
- Family-Unfriendly Death: Up till UDON's Legends series, Gou Hibiki's death was more or less Played for Laughs, via Dan's over-the-top dramatic reactions. Then they show the whole, brutal scenario in full. It doesn't help that the company keeps treating Dan like dirt in their following stories.
- Posthumous Character: Sagat had an eyepatch in Street Fighter I, so Gou's been dead for quite some time.
Goutetsu - Japan
Voiced by: note
Gouken and Akuma's master, killed by Akuma in a Duel to the Death after he gave in to the Satsui no Hadou.
- Badass Beard: He had a long grey goatee.
- Badass Grandpa: He was old, but he's also responsible for molding Akuma and Gouken into the warriors they are now.
- Badasses Wear Bandanas: He wore a yellow bandana on his head.
- Big Fancy House: In Generations, he lives in a huge Japanese house atop of a hill. His niece Sayaka lives with him and handles the housework.
- Depending on the Artist: Goutetsu basically has two designs; one with a bandana, receding hairline and long goatee, or one with more hair, no bandana and no beard. The former is used for his appearance in the games and comics, and the latter in various spinoff anime. His appearance in Assassin's Fist looks fairly close to the latter, but with the addition of a more close-cut goatee.
- Evil Mentor: Well, not exactly evil per se, but it is telling that he was proud of Akuma's willingness to kill, and that Gouken purposefully taught Ryu and Ken less extreme, non-lethal versions of the Ansatsuken techniques taught to him by Goutetsu.
- Go Out with a Smile: He gladly accepted his death, as he was proud of Akuma for being strong enough to kill him.
- Posthumous Character: He was killed twenty years prior to the events of the first game.
- Small Role, Big Impact: He was the teacher of both Akuma and Gouken, and is responsible for the way they are now. Without Gouken, there'd be no Ryu or Ken, and without Goutetsu, there'd be no Gouken.
Ishizaki - Japan
Karin's bumbling, portly assistant who accompanies her in Alpha 3.
- Big Eater: As evidenced by his large figure. In the UDON comics, Karin uses Ishizaki to cheat at a hot dog eating contest against Sakura, feeding him the hot dogs instead of eating them herself.
- Bumbling Sidekick: He was meant to be babysitting Karin on her journey, but this trope is more in line with what he really is.
- Butt-Monkey: He doesn't get a lot of respect from Karin, or her other staff for that matter. Sometimes he shows up in Karin's stead and assumes a fighting stance, only for Karin to toss a tray at him and get him to go back to work. This is played up even further in the UDON comics, as he was once forced into a fight with Karin...while wearing Sakura's schoolgirl uniform.
- This trend continues in V, where he appears in the background of the Kanzuki Estate stage. He'll excitedly watch the fight from the sidelines, but the more excited he gets, the more annoyed the maid next to him becomes. Eventually she'll become so annoyed that she'll knock him upside the head with a dinner tray.
- Foil: To Shibasaki. Ishizaki's Butt-Monkey status and Bumbling Sidekick ways serve to highlight just how much of a Hyper-Competent Sidekick Shibasaki is.
- I Just Want to Be Badass: He sometimes wants in on the action, only for Karin to shoot him down and get him back to work.
- Throw the Dog a Bone: In the UDON comics, Karin uses him to cheat at a hot dog eating contest against Sakura, hiding him under the table and forcing him to eat the hot dogs. However, E. Honda, the judge of the contest, declares Ishizaki the winner, much to Karin and Sakura's surprise. After Ishizaki tries to give the trophy to Karin, she lets him keep it, stating that he's the one who earned it.
Kei Chitose - Japan
Voiced By: note
Sakura's classmate and best friend. She cannot understand Sakura's dogged obsession about street fighting, but supports her nevertheless.
- Butt-Monkey: Most notably in the UDON comics, where she gets in a lot of trouble while trying to keep Sakura out of trouble. In the Legends: Sakura series, while Sakura is showing off the wrestling moves she knows when meeting Rainbow Mika, she does them all on the nearest person - namely, Kei.
- Collector of the Strange: She collects merchandise related to cephalopod aliens.
- Ordinary High-School Student: As ordinary as it gets in the Street Fighter-verse. Her grades aren't even particularly good or bad.
- Photographic Memory: She never forgets the face and name of anyone she meets, even once.
- Straight Man: She tries to be a voice of reason to Sakura, but fails more often than not.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Girly Girl to Sakura's Tomboy.
Shibasaki - Japan
"Miss Karin inspires us all."
Voiced By: note
Karin's steward and most faithful assistant. He keeps charge of fighting data for Karin, tracking various fighting styles and opponents from around the world, and also maintains her busy schedule.
- Ascended Extra: In Alpha 3, Shibasaki just appeared in the background of Karin's stage and had a single line in her ending. In V, he's accompanying Karin wherever she goes, in place of Ishizaki.
- Badass in a Nice Suit
- Battle Butler: Karin's story mode in Street Fighter V shows that he is himself a capable fighter. When a low-ranking Shadaloo soldier is sent careening towards Karin by Zangief, he darts in front of her like a bullet, and stops him with a single hand.
- Foil: To Ishizaki. While Ishizaki is somewhat bumbling, goofy and gets no respect, Shibasaki is extremely competent and straight-laced.
- Hyper-Competent Sidekick: Downplayed, since Karin herself is smart and a powerful fighter, but Shibasaki does his job extremely well and has Karin's respect, unlike Ishizaki.
- The Jeeves: He isn't British, but he is a butler that performs his job flawlessly. Birdie even calls him "Jeeves" during Karin's story mode.
- Spell My Name with an "S": His name was spelled as "Shibazaki" in Alpha 3, but it's spelled "Shibasaki" in V. The kanji used is still the same, though.
- The Stoic: He is extremely unemotional and strictly professional, able to maintain his composure even under stressful circumstances, such as when Zangief sent a Shadaloo grunt flying towards Karin, and he was able to block it without so much as a thought. The only time he's ever been surprised is when Karin began using "The Ruler's Staying Hand", a technique in the Kanzuki family that apparently uses pure muscle power to overwhelm opponents thousands of miles away, and then watched Zangief effortlessly replicate it.
Tsukushi Kasugano - Japan
Sakura's video game obsessed little brother.
- Annoying Younger Sibling: Sakura really hates playing video games with him, due to the fact that she always loses to him.
- Does Not Like Shoes: He rarely goes outside for anything except school, anyway.
- Otaku: He's always seen playing video games, and he's also a fan of plastic models.
- Unusually Uninteresting Sight: He's in the background of Sakura's Alpha 2 and V stage playing video games. Despite the fact that there's two people fighting just outside his house, he is never distracted from his game.
Yamato Nadeshiko - Japan
Voiced by: note
A black haired female wrestler who is also R. Mika's tag-team partner.
- All There in the Manual: Her first appearance was in an artwork for Capcom Secret File, where her name is given. She never appeared in the actual game, until Street Fighter V, where she ends up assisting Mika in some of her moves.
- Ascended Extra: From a piece of artwork to a helper for Mika in battle in Street Fighter V.
- Assist Character: Her role towards Mika in Street Fighter V.
- Ass Kicks You: She's one half of Mika's Peach Assault attack, meaning that the opponents head is going to be sandwiched between both Mika's ass and Nadeshiko's ass.
- Boyish Short Hair: She has a bowl cut.
- Chairman of the Brawl: Mika's V-Trigger 2 has Nadashiko run in from the side of the screen and hit the opponent with a chair.
- Dynamic Entry: Mika's V-Trigger 1 has Nadeshiko fly in from either side of the screen with a kick, or from the top of the screen with a body press.
- Face–Heel Turn: Her alter-ego Yasha Nadeshiko
- Gameplay and Story Segregation: She goes completely unmentioned in R. Mika's story mode cutscenes, and the story of the game in general, despite the fact that she's still present as a part of Mika's moveset. In fact, Zangief's story ends with him and Mika becoming tag-team partners. How exactly does Nadeshiko feel about this?
- Yamato Nadeshiko: In an interesting twist, she may bear the name, but with her beefy build, boyish hair and aggressive fighting style, she doesn't exactly exhibit the required virtues.
Yoko Harumage - Japan
AKA Demon Coach Yoko, she is a representative of Iwashigahama Women's Pro Wrestling and R. Mika's trainer, as well as the one to give her the name "Rainbow Mika." She usually uses a scooter to get around ever since a neck and back injury ended her wrestling career.
- Ambiguously Brown: In Alpha, she looks about as Japanese as Mika does. In other words, not at all. Her updated appearance for V makes her look a bit more Japanese, with lighter skin and darker hair.
- Boobs of Steel: She's got a very large chest, and is a former wrestler.
- Career-Ending Injury: She hurt her neck and back in a match against Black Widow of Saturday Night Slam Masters fame, so she retired from the ring. She still serves as a coach for other rising stars, though.
- Fat Girl: She's a little on the hefty side in comparison to the other Street Fighter women, weighing in at 115 kg (253 lbs).
- Names to Run Away from Really Fast: She has both "Yoko Harmageddon" and "Demon Coach Yoko" going for her.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: Her penchant for facepaint and styling her hair straight up in the ring (as noted by the Street Fighter V Character Reference) is a likely reference to former joshi superstar Bull Nakano.
- Skunk Stripe: The Street Fighter V Character Reference depicts her with a white streak in her hair.
- Tomboyish Baseball Cap: She wore a backwards green baseball cap, to go with her green tracksuit, back in the Alpha series.
- Wooden Katanas Are Even Better: She carries a wooden training sword around with her, and apparently used weapons in the ring.
Introduced in Street Fighter III
Doctor Woo - China
"So...the "Never-Dying Warrior" has been born..."
A famous scientist who was kidnapped by the Illuminati. He now works closely with Urien on the G-Project, responsible for Eleven and Twelve, as well as Necro's body modifications.
Voiced by: note
- Adaptation Name Change: He originally appeared in 3rd Strike under the name "Dr. Kure", but this was apparently a misreading of his name, according to the CFN website.
- Improbably High I.Q.: He claims to have an IQ of 1300.
- Kidnapped Scientist: He was taken by force by the Illuminati in order to work for them, although he's apparently beginning to enjoy the experiments they give him.
- Gonk: Combine his giant head with his big ears, big nose, tiny eyes, and small stature, and you have one weird looking guy.
- My Brain Is Big: He has a bulbous, egg-shaped head.
- Nice Hat: He's shown wearing a tiny graduation cap in both Twelves 3rd Strike ending and Urien's story mode in V.
- Shorter Means Smarter: He's one of the shortest characters in the series, at only 4' 11" (152 cm), and is working on a project to create Artificial Humans with the power of Voluntary Shapeshifting and Power Copying.
- Stockholm Syndrome: He was kidnapped by the Illuminati, although it's evident that he enjoys working on the G-Project, despite his apparent aversion to violence.
Don-chan - Japan
Ibuki's pet tanuki, who's been with her since she was a child.
- Intellectual Animal: He's one of many tanuki that live in Ibuki's ninja village, but unlike the others, he's learned ninjutsu.
- Nice Hat: He wears a straw hat typical of the Tanuki of folklore.
- Non-Human Sidekick: To Ibuki.
- Ridiculously Cute Critter
- Trademark Favorite Food: Persimmon. He can even be seen stealing some with Ibuki in the intro to Super Street Fighter IV.
Effie - Unknown
"Ohh, poor Illia! I'll help you out!"
Voiced by: note
Necro's girlfriend, and the one who saved him from being destroyed by the Illuminati. She's also apparently an Illuminati experiment herself, though her exact purpose and function remain unknown.
- Adaptational Badass / Ascended Extra: In the SFIII games she was simply Necro's companion who mimicked his moves, even in defeat, as well as one of the random Judgement Girls. In the UDON Street Fighter Unlimited series, she's a Made of Iron Little Miss Badass who tag teams with him in several fights.
- Chainsaw Good: Her CFN artwork depicts her with one.
- Dangerously Short Skirt
- Exhausted Eye Bags: This paired with her pale skin make her look a little bit eerie.
- Expy: Her CFN artwork gives some slight tweaks to her design, and she's looking a lot more like Harley Quinn.
- Her mannerisms and constant referring to Necro with pet names such as "Sugar Plum" and "Puddin'" in the Street Fighter Unlimited comics are also nods to Harley.
- Fingerless Gloves
- Gameplay and Story Segregation: When acting as a judgement girl, she won't necessarily vote for Necro. She could even potentially vote for Urien, Twelve, or Gill, the very people trying to capture them in the first place.
- Genki Girl: If Necro wins a match, she'll occasionally show up to imitate whatever victory pose he's doing.
- Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: She isn't very big to begin with, and pairing her with lanky Necro makes her look even smaller.
- Little Miss Badass / Made of Iron: There's a reason Urien trusted her to retrieve Necro in Street Fighter Unlimited; Not only does she single-handedly take out two of the Delta team members transporting him, she also takes out their truck by letting it crash into her. And gets not so much as a scratch from it, either.
- She later tag teams with Necro to fight Alex and in the Final Battle, she's among the fighters going toe to toe with Gill.
- Older Than She Looks: She's in her early twenties, although she looks no older than sixteen.
- Perky Goth: She sports a cyber-goth look, and has a sweet, peppy personality.
- Together in Death: Downplayed, since matches just end with a character getting knocked out. When Necro is defeated, Effie will run in from the side and lay down beside him, as if she had just been KO'd herself. Granted, this trope might be taken literally if Necro's beaten by Urien, Twelve or Gill, and possibly Q.
- Ugly Guy Hot Girlfriend: She's a cute and relatively normal looking girl, and her boyfriend is a lanky, pale-skinned Rubber Man with a big nose.
Elena's Family - Kenya
Elena's father Jafari, her mother Amina, and her brother Marcus.
- Absolute Cleavage: Amina's top doesn't cover much.
- Can't Hold His Liquor: Jafari dislikes alcohol for this reason.
- Culture Chop Suey: Whilst Elena and her family are likely based on Kenya's native Masai people (via their height, collar beads, tribal existance etc) it's only an allusion in part, and their designs are something of a mish-mash, borrowing from other cultures including native north Americans and southern American Indians.
- Cultured Warrior: At first glance, they just seem like a family of Capoeira-using warriors who live on the African savanna, but they also visit the city every weekend, going to museums and theaters. Jafari has even studied abroad in France, where he earned a medical PhD, and his daughter Elena is also studying abroad.
- Does Not Like Shoes: They're a tribal people, after all. Amina apparently doesn't even like walking on paved roads.
- Earthy Barefoot Character: All of them live off the land in the African savanna by choice, although they visit the city on weekends.
- Extremity Extremist: They're all Capoeira practitioners.
- Fan Boy: Marcus is a huge fan of Dee Jay's music, but he keeps it a secret.
- Good Parents: Jafari is strong and wise, and Amina is very loving.
- Healing Factor: Much like Elena, they all have the ability to heal themselves. Jafari even has a PhD in pharmaceuticals and veterinary medicine that he received while studying abroad in France.
- Implausible Hair Color: Elena and Marcus seem to have inherited their white hair from their mother.
- Multi-Ethnic Name: Curiously, Jafari and Amina have Swahili names, but their children, Elena and Marcus, have more English sounding names.
- Statuesque Stunner: Amina is just as tall and beautiful as her daughter.
- Stripperiffic: Like Elena, they don't wear much. They basically wear swimsuits with various accessories, like Jafari's cape or Amina's half-skirt.
- Walking Shirtless Scene: Jafari and Marcus.
Gerald Golby - South Africa
An MMA fighter who appears in Ken's 3rd Strike ending, losing a match against him. He previously lost against Alex in the semi-finals of a Vale Tudo tournament called "Eternal Fighting".
- All There in the Manual: He has seconds of screen-time in 3rd Strike, and went unnamed until the CFN website wrote about him.
- Jobber: Exists in-series purely as an opponent that Alex and Ken fought in various side tournaments to the main 3rd Strike arc.
- Real Men Eat Meat: Meat is listed as one of his favorite things, the other being training.
- Token Minority: There is a fairly wide spread of black characters in the series generally, but Gerald represents the very first South African character in the series and only the second African character, after Elena (who hails from Kenya).
Gillian Leigh, David Spender & Wayne Nakamura - USA
"Send this picture out to each of our branches, security level 4! You are to start an investigation on this man immedietly! Dismissed!" -Wayne
Gillian and David are a pair of CIA agents investigating Q, a mysterious man in a trenchcoat and iron mask. They appear in Q's arcade mode ending, presenting their findings to their boss, Wayne, who demands a full scale investigation after Q begins appearing in photographs from around the world, seemingly at the same time.
- Agent Mulder: David is outright named after David Duchovney, although ironically, it's Gillian, who is named after Gillian Anderson, Agent Scully, who is the actual Agent Mulder of the duo. She believes in the supernatural after an encounter as a child with a strange creature with pure white skin that could shafeshift, obviously alluding to Twelve (Or rather, one of its prototypes).
- Agent Scully: Gillian is named after Gillian Anderson, who played Agent Scully, but David, named after David Duchovney, Agent Mulder, is the actual Agent Scully of the duo, being the one who is skeptical of the supernatural.
- Boyish Short Hair: Gillian.
- The Mole: Q's ending might be implying this about David, as Q and David have similar skin tones, white collar shirts and red ties.
- Named After Somebody Famous: Gillian and David's names come from the actors who play Scully and Mulder on The X-Files, Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny. Their CFN profiles reveal more about their personalities and make it clear that the reference was intentional.
- David and Mulder both have the same birthday of October 13th, are bastketball fans, and don't like insects. David's last name, Spender, comes from both Mulder's fellow agent Jeffrey Spender, as well as the true name of the Cigarette Smoking Man, the show's primary antagonist, and father to both Mulder and Jeffrey. What's reversed, however, is that David is a skeptic of the supernatural, while Mulder is a believer, and it was Scully who was the skeptic.
- Gillian shares her birthday with the actual Gillian Anderson, August 9th. Gillian's love of anime is a reference to when Gillian Anderson voiced Moro in Princess Mononoke, and her dislike of sleep deprivation is a reference to the fact that Gillian Anderson notoriously suffered from sleep deprivation during the first season of The X-Files. Gillian's last name, Leigh, is a reference to the actress' full name, Gillian Leigh Anderson. What's reversed is that Gillian is the one who believes in the supernatural, when Agent Scully was a skeptic, and it was Agent Mulder who was the believer.
- Multi-Ethnic Name: Wayne Nakamura.
- No Name Given: Wayne Nakamura had no name in Street Fighter III, and he was given the name Richard Burgman in the comics. With his SFV profile, Capcom offically named him Wayne Nakamura.
- Otaku: Gillian is apparently an anime fan.
- Weight Woe: Gillian's weight is listed as being a secret.
Houmei & Shaomei - Hong Kong
Two teenaged sisters who were raised with Yun and Yang, and have been their friends ever since then. Older sister Houmei is headstrong and outspoken, little sister Shaomei is shy and gentle.

- Berserk Button: In both Yun's IV ending and Yang's III one, the twins learn that sneaking out of Hong Kong without telling Houmei can bring PAINFUL consequences.

- In some official artwork◊ and Yun's Second Impact ending, Houmei wears a pink shirt and pink hair decs plus blue jeans. In Yang's Third Strike ending and in IV, she's wearing red clothes/decs instead.
- Shaomei wears a white and dark red outfit in Yang's Second Impact ending, but switches to a dark blue or purple qipao plus black jeans in Yang's aforementioned Third Strike ending and official art◊. In the art seen above, however, she wears a light blue qipao blouse plus her black pants.
- Hair Decorations: Both wear similar hair clips. Though it in the picture above, it seems seems the older Shaomei has ditched hers.
- Lethal Chef: Houmei, as it befits a tsundere.
- Love Dodecahedron: Houmei and Yun have quite the degree of Belligerent Sexual Tension and Slap-Slap-Kiss. Yang is Houmei's Hopeless Suitor and is quite aware of it. Shaomei has a crush on Yang and is gathering her courage to confess to him someday, and it's hinted that Yang might be able to reciprocate.
- Pink Is Feminine: Subverted, as the tomboy is the one who wears pink. The girly girl wears pink clips... with either dark blue or purple clothes.
- Sibling Yin-Yang - Tomboy and Girly Girl: Houmei is a Hotblooded tomboy, Shaomei is a gentle Shrinking Violet. Funnily enough, this is mirrored in which brother they're associated with the most (Houmei with the loudmouthed, free-spirited Yun, Shaomei with the quiet, focused Yang).
- Tsundere: Houmei is a Type A. She's super Hot-Blooded and nagging to the twins and specially Yun, but according to Shaomei she literally worries herself sick and can barely eat if the boys are not around and she doesn't know if they're well or not.
- Wet Blanket Wife: Played for Laughs with Houmei, as said above.

- Julia (England) — is dressed for a traditional English hunt in smart riding clothes.
- Lilly (India) — sports a prerequisite Indian sari.

- Pretty in Mink: Befitting her Russian nationality, Anna sports a full length, fur-trimmed coat and fur ushanka (a type of traditional Russian hat). She even keeps it on at the beach in V.
- Proper Lady / English Rose: Julia is the daughter of a wealthy English industrialist and a member of the "Young Ladies of the World" club.

A young Chinese girl that was kidnapped by Urien and the Illuminati, only to be saved by Chun-Li. She appears again in V, where Chun-Li chats with her about her early days as an Interpol agent. She also plays an integral role in the fall of Shadaloo, since she's one of the missing hackers that Guile and Chun-Li were searching for.

Mr. Ortho K. Gotch - England
"But of course, sir."
Dudley's faithful family butler. He is friends with the other butlers of the series, Shibasaki and Azam.
- The Jeeves: Mr. Gotch is about as stereotypical of the British butler as you can get, plus even more dedicated. He'll deliver Dudley's afternoon tea by airlift if he has to. He averts the "smarter than his employer" side of the trope, though, since Dudley himself is just as smart and well-mannered as he is.
- Meaningful Name: His first name, Ortho, literally means "straight" or "upright".
- Old Retainer: Mr. Gotch originally served Dudley's late father.
- Quintessential British Gentleman: Just like Dudley, Mr. Gotch is a well-mannered Englishman.

- Badass Beard: Tom's got one, and it used to make him look like a Jean Reno.
- Bare Your Midriff: Patricia, in Alex's 3rd Strike ending.
- Career-Ending Injury: Averted, although Alex certainly treats it this way. Tom gets badly beaten by Gill and is hospitalized, spurring Alex to seek revenge. By the end, Tom's well enough to be able to move around, albeit with a crutch.
- Depending on the Artist: In III, Tom was a dead ringer for Jean Reno, but concept art in V makes him look a bit different, as well as less muscular. He's still a fit looking guy, but he definitely isn't as big as Alex anymore.
- Supreme Chef: Patricia is apparently very good at making sandwiches, and provides Alex with some during his story mode.
- Weight Woe: Possibly with Patricia. Much like Chun-Li, her weight has gone undisclosed, and it's listed as being "secret", instead of just "unknown" like everyone else with unknown height, weight, likes, dislikes, etc.

Introduced in Street Fighter IV
Candy - USA
"Well, my Rufus ain't no ordinary man, he's the best fighter in America, y'know, and he's a gentleman!"
Voiced by: note
Rufus' girlfriend, who dresses like a stereotypical cowgirl. The two apparently met during a dine-and-dash.
- Absolute Cleavage: Deep enough to get lost in. Just look at the screencap of her.
- Bare Your Midriff: She wears a short pink top.
- Because Destiny Says So: According to Rose's win quote to Rufus:"You are destined to be with Candy. Treat her well."
- Horrible Judge of Character: She's convinced that Rufus is a genius and a gentleman. Yes, the guy who runs around beating up everyone, regardless of age, ethnicity or gender, because he thinks they're Ken Masters. Then again, this might be relative, as Rufus is kind enough to her, and she doesn't exactly seem to be very smart herself.
- Ugly Guy Hot Girlfriend: Rufus is a fat, ugly, loudmouthed man who has somehow managed to attract a hot cowgirl.
- Unexplained Accent: You'd think that with her stereotypical cowgirl outfit and appearing to live in the American South that she would have a Southern accent, but her voice makes her sound like she's from Brooklyn.

- Dark-Skinned Blonde: Melike.
- Does Not Like Shoes: Hakan's daughters all run around barefoot.
- Good Parents: They're both loving parents, but Hakan tends to spoil his daughters, while Melike is more strict.
- Meaningful Name: The name "Melike" (pronounced Mee-lee-kay) means "Queen" in Turkish, which is suitably apt considering that her husband Hakan's name means "King". Their children's names are all terms relating to oil.
- Abla - "Elder Sister", also a play on the Japanese term for oil, "Abura".
- Susam - "Sesame"
- Hurması - "Persimmon"
- Tereyağı - "Butter"
- Kanola - "Rapeseed"
- Zeytin - "Olive"
- Ayçiçeği - "Sunflower"
- Non-Standard Character Design: Hakan's daughters, with their Kewpie-doll proportions and pie-eyes, evoke a simpler, more cartoonish artistic style — certainly when compared to any other periphery characters in the series listed here.
- Numerological Motif: Having inherited their father's bizarre hairstyle, Hakan's daughters heads are also numbered. They all have a different number of head...barnacles...in their hair, presumably showing their order of birth, the oldest having only one and the youngest having seven.
- She's Got Legs: Melike does.
- Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: Not only does Hakan look really weird, but his wife has managed to keep her looks after having a kid, then twins, then triplets, then yet another daughter.
- The Voiceless: Not one of them utters a word during Hakan's arcade mode ending.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: The children have inherited their dad's blue hair.
Lauren - USA
Maya (Crimson Viper)'s daughter.
- Cheerful Child: She's a very happy girl who loves her mother very much, and is completely unaware of her mom's real job as a CIA agent.
- Disappeared Dad: Who her father is has never been brought up.
- Morality Pet: While C. Viper is by no means a villain, she does antagonize a lot of people during IV due to her undercover operation. Lauren serves to show that she's not a bad person behind the Jerkass Façade.
Smalt Raven - USA
One of Crimson Viper's fellow CIA operatives, who was killed by Shadaloo shortly before the events of IV.
- All There in the Manual: He's never mentioned within the game itself. He's only ever made an appearance in supplementary material.
- Animal Motif: The raven. Similarly to Crimson Viper, whose hair resembles a viper, his hair resembles a raven.
- Cool Shades
- Color Motif: Much like fellow CIA operatives Crimson Viper and Jade Goat, Smalt Raven's codename is a color followed by an animal, with smalt being a specific shade of blue.

Introduced in Street Fighter V
Azam - Middle East
"If it is a silly thing young master wishes to do, then I will follow his wishes."
Voiced by: note
Rashid's butler. He is a friend of Zangief and Shibasaki, Karin's butler. He is traveling the world along with his young master in order to find Rashid's friend, a Shadaloo scientist who they have lost contact with.
- Ace Pilot: He's the one flying the plane in Rashid's stage, Skies of Honor. He's apparently able to fly the plane well enough that two people can fight atop the wings without falling off.
- Badass Arm-Fold: His default pose. He even tends to run around and jump while still keeping his arms folded.
- Badass Beard: He's got a big bushy white beard, much like Gouken's.
- Battle Butler: We never get to see him fight with anyone, though he's presumably a capable fighter himself. He's a big guy, he's friends with Zangief, and he intimidates Birdie after Rashid's battle with him.
- Bodyguarding a Badass: He's meant to be Rashid's bodyguard in addition to his butler, despite Rashid being a fighter as well, who does a lot more fighting than Azam.
- Catchphrase: "Master." It's the only thing he ever says during the story mode. He'll say it whenever Rashid is sad, acting silly, or in danger.
- Does Not Like Shoes
- Genie in a Bottle: Whilst his master pretty much averts "Arabian Nights" Days (except for his super art), Azam's design and outfit unmistakably evokes a classic Arabian genie.
- Oh, Crap!: How Rashid and him reacts to Helen revealing to Charlie Nash that he is already dead due to the fact his body is physically dead and it won't last long.
- The Quiet One: He generally only speaks when he and Rashid are alone together. He speaks plenty in Rashid's character story, but when the general story came out, he was reduced to just reacting to Rashid's antics by saying "Master".
- Rapunzel Hair: He has a long, flowing mohawk style haircut.
- Remember the New Guy: Well known among fighting circuits and stewards seeking a role model, respected in both worlds; Azam seems to be very well acquaint with Zangief as well, with the two remnicing even their masters were buddies in the past and now they have followed their steps. This well respected guy was never mentioned or hinted before Street Fighter V.
- Servile Snarker: Expect him to comment by saying "Master..." and shaking his head whenever Rashid's acting silly.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: A heavily muscled man from the Middle East who is pals with Zangief, has a Badass Mustache and acts as a bodyguard/servant to another character? Sounds a lot like Darun Mister.
- Walking Shirtless Scene: Much like Birdie, he only wears a vest.
Byron Taylor - USA

- Large Ham Announcer: It's his job.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: See Captain Ersatz above.
- Wearing a Flag on Your Head: He wears an Uncle Sam hat when he's working as a wrestling commentator.

One of the results of the Illuminati's G-Project, and the precursor to Twelve. It is fought by Urien in his story mode, who deems Eleven a failure after he defeats it.
- Ditto Fighter: Much like Twelve, it can transform into other fighters, and fights Urien as a doppelganger of him.
- Plant Person: It was apparently created out of reformed plant matter rather than animal matter.
- The Voiceless: It doesn't speak at all if it isn't transformed into somebody else.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting
- You Are Number Eleven: It's the eleventh result of the G-Project, and it's replaced by Twelve shortly after.

Rainbow Mika and Yamato Nadeshiko are also a part of this group, and Yoko Harumage is the coach. They include Sunrise Nishisenba, Maple Storm note Raika, Fuka, Vivian Nishiki and Pepe Ishiwata.

Mahesh - India
"My purpose...is to become stronger, and to protect our people as you do."
Voiced by: note
An Indian policeman who wishes to study yoga under Dhalsim, in order to better protect people.
- Breath Weapon: He eventually manages to shoot a tiny puff of fire from his mouth, but as he points out, it isn't exactly on par with what Dhalsim can do. Then again, he's still an initiate, so while this is to be expected, it manages to be rather impressive in itself.
- Men Don't Cry: Averted in his case, as he was apparently reduced to tears by a movie called "Ajwain's Tears".
- The Movie Buff: He enjoys going to film festivals in his spare time.
- Police Are Useless: Downplayed. He might be a perfectly competent cop, but he's nothing in comparison to Dhalsim or the other fighters. In the cinematic story, when Necalli shows up, it's up to Ryu and Dhalsim to defeat him, while Mahesh gets to cower in fear behind them.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Curry, just like Dhalsim.
The Matsuda Family - Brazil
Sean and Laura's extended family; including their Japanese father Yuichiro, grandfather Kinjiro, their Brazilian mother Brenda, their older brother Fabio, and their cousins, Enzo and Manuela da Silva.

- No Celebrities Were Harmed: The Matsuda clan, with their mixed Japanese-Brazilian heritage and their Matsuda Jiu-Jitsu are a combination of the Machida family (who produced Lyoto Machida) and the Gracie clan, who are known for basically inventing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, which they call Gracie Jiu-Jitsu.
- Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Grandpa Kinjiro is the master martial artist of the family, and every other family member is at least one head taller than him. At 5' 5" (166 cm), he'd be one of the shortest fighters in the series if he were playable.
- Shown Their Work: "Sean" isn't a common Brazilian name at all, but Brenda, Enzo, Fabio and Manuela are all perfectly suitable.
- Strong Family Resemblance: Laura's a dead-ringer for her equally buxom mother, Brenda, and it's easy to see where she gets her looks and curves from.
- Three Successful Generations: When it comes to martial prowess (barring Sean); represented by Badass Grandpa Kinjiro, his son Yuichiro, and the four out of five Matsuda/da Silva cousins; Fabio, Laura, Enzo and Manuela.

Voiced by: note
A 59-year-old police officer from Brazil. He has three sons, who are also police officers. He's fought by Cammy in the game's story mode, in order to save Decapre from arrest.
- The Danza: Voiced in English by Peter "Combofiend" Rosas.
- Expy: He looks quite a bit like Commissioner James Gordon
- Joke Character: He has ridiculously low health, and only a few simple moves. It's practically impossible to lose to him, even on hard mode.
- Lawman Baton: One of his only moves is a double-swing of a nightstick.
- Police Are Useless: An aging police officer stands no chance against a young special forces agent.
- Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: He actually does use his gun...once, in a cutscene, and he misses. Then, when Cammy begins retaliating, he puts the gun away and tries to take her down with only a nightstick and a few simple punches and kicks. It doesn't work out well for him.
Rashid's Friend - Unknown
"I have to go now, Rashid. One last thing: please enjoy the rest of your life. Goodbye."
Voiced by: note
A female scientist who helps to stop Shadaloo from the inside by stealing the Operation C.H.A.I.N.S access keys, and sending them around the world to various fighters.

- Dead All Along: Rashid's main motivation is to save her, but unknown to him she's been dead since he first confronted Shadaloo.
- Dead Man Writing: After the day has been saved, a voicemail message from her is automatically sent to Rashid's phone.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Based on a voicemail message from her which is automatically sent to Rashid's phone, it is implied she knew that what she did to stop Shadaloo would lead to her demise and she did so willingly without regret.
- I'm Melting!: She's melted into a puddle of purple goo by F.A.N.G early on in the story.
- Meganekko: She wears a pair of red-framed glasses.
- No Name Given: She's only ever referred to as "Rashid's friend". Not even Rashid ever says what her name is. For that matter, the characters all seem to go out of the way to avoid saying "she" or "her" (except for one instance, courtesy of Helen), even though her gender isn't exactly masked by her single appearance in the story. This seems to be a thinly-veiled attempt to cast doubt as to whether the person Rashid was looking for was her or someone yet to be seen, at least up until F.A.N.G confirms that it's her by blurting out in frustration that he "should've killed that traitor much earlier" right in front of an angered Rashid.
- Parts Unknown: It isn't made clear as to where she's from. She is friends with Rashid, who is from an unidentified country in the Middle East, but she does not look or sound at all Middle Eastern, but then again, Rashid doesn't have an accent either.
- Playful Hacker: It seems that she was this before getting taken by Shadaloo, with her last program containing a cute chibi Rashid.
- Small Role, Big Impact: All she did was steal the Operation C.H.A.I.N.S access keys, and sending them around the world to various fighters and creating a command code to shut down Operation C.H.A.I.N.S before meeting her demise but it was because of her Shadaloo has been defeated. If she didn't do what she did then things would have gone very differently.
- Ungrateful Bitch: Despite them having been close and being fond of each other, Rashid always thought she was this, since according to him, she never thanked him once for all the times he saved her ass. However, she does get to thank him at the end of the story, through voicemail, some time after dying, making for one hell of a Tear Jerker.
- The Unseen: Subverted. She has an onscreen appearance, but it's very brief before she's killed, and the camera mostly shows her from behind. The image above is from her model being datamined by modders after the story mode patch released.

- Balloon Belly: Gulab Jamun's ability is to inflate himself like a balloon.

He uses his own self-taught style called the Sawada-ryu Kenkajutsu (Sawada-style brawling techniques) mixed in with some elements of Ninjutsu (most likely his teleportation move the Ninpo Kamikakushi).
- Bloody Murder: His Gokusatsu Jibakujin, a move where he stabs himself and forms an arc of blood to protect him from attack while simultaneously damaging opponents if they get too close. The move gets lampshaded in his SFV profile as it tells the readers that they "must not imitate it".
- Canon Immigrant: Originally from the first Street Fighter film and Street Fighter: The Movie. While Street Fighter V is rolling, Capcom has been steadily releasing concept art for pretty much every character who ever threw a punch in SF, extras, or just-for-fun stuff. He is included as one of the former cases◊. Now, he is considered canon to the main series.
- Composite Character: He was already this for Guile (military may in fatigues) and Fei Long (Asian man with quick normal moves, a "Rekka-like" attack and a flying kick). Becuase of his SFV art and profile, he's also being compared to Ryu (Japanese man with some stoicism who loves to train and wears a headband).
- The Danza: For his actor, Kenya Sawada, to the point in his canon SFV profile that every single one of his stats and preferences is lifted from the actor's website (with love of course).
- Finger Poke of Doom: His Super Combo in the console version, Kamikaze Banzai. He puts his hands in the air and sliding into his opponent. It looks stupid but it's quite damaging; he's invulnerable to projectiles while performing it.
- The Good Captain: His rank in both the first Street Fighter film and official canon, where his SFV profile calls him Captain Sawada. This was also his former rank in the Street Fighter cartoon before he replaced Guile in the AN.
- Katanas Are Just Better: He actually doesn't use it often, the "sword" people thought he used for the Ki Raisen and Ku Raisen in the arcade version of Street Fighter: The Movie was just a motion blur. In the console games, he only uses it to initiate the Gokusatsu Jibakujin. In the Street Fighter cartoon, however, he practically goes nuts with it in his second appearance.
- Lethal Joke Character: While his special moves in the arcade version were practical and effective, in the home version new moves were created out of the old ones or created from scratch but had a more...unique take on them. The Hyakuretu Izungiri looked cool but had Gadoken level priority, see Bloody Murder for the Gokusatsu Jibakujin, Sawada Special '95 was an amazing combo kick attack that's been instantly dated by the year the console game came out, Ninpo Kamikakushi uses a stance that may poke fun at the "win taunt" Sawada used in the ending movie, and the Kamikaze Banzai, while a powerful 5-Hit combo super move that can snuff out projectiles, also has him do a standing slide into his opponents while his arms are raised above his head.
- Made of Iron: In the case of the elements at least as he has a strong resistance to cold.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: Kenya Sawada obviously but also his close friend, Jackie Chan who Captain Sawada bares more than a slight resemblance to in his SFV artwork.
- Rapid Firefisticuffs: His Hyakuretsu Izungiri, which is a ki-based rapid chop attack that surrounds his hand with blue and red energy with a similar appearance to the Sonic Boom.
- Teleport Spam: Ninpo Kamikakushi, which works the same way as Dhalsim's Yoga Teleport.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Effectively replaces Fei-Long in the movie-based game's lineup.
Shadaloo Troopers - Shadaloo
Blade, Arcane, Khyber and F7 are based off the Bison Troopers in the live action movie. These four are high-tech shock troops from Shadaloo's American branch who are skilled in using deadly weapons as well as hand to hand combat.
- Adaptation Name Change: Initially known as the "Bison Troopers" in the 90's film, the name of these elite shock troops became "Shadaloo Troopers" when they became part of the main Street Fighter canon.
- All Your Powers Combined: F7 has all the other Troopers' attacks.
- Alternate Company Equivalent: Take a good look at them and the game they're originally from, and then recall the various ninja characters like Scorpion, Sub-Zero and Reptile from the Mortal Kombat series, as well as the robots Sektor and Cyrax. In fact, Arcane's name is spelled as Arkane in the original game. Switching hard C's with K's is Mortal Kombat's gimmick.
- Canon Immigrants: Originally from the first Street Fighter film and Street Fighter: The Movie, they are now canon thanks to the Street Fighter V Character Reference.
- Cool Mask: They all wore identical masks in their original appearance, but then their Street Fighter V artwork gave each of them a unique mask.
- Crossover: Blade's true identity is supposed to be Gunloc from Saturday Night Slam Masters, who is rumored to be Guile's brother.
- Elite Mooks: Each of them is considered an elite Shadaloo soldier, with Blade being the lowest rank and F7 being the highest.
- Evil Minions: They are a part of Shadaloo, after all.
- Expy: Of the the multicolored ninjas (Scorpion, Sub-Zero and Reptile) and robots (Sektor and Cyrax) from Mortal Kombat.
- Faceless Goons: Although their Street Fighter V artwork at least gives them unique looking masks.
- Fat Bastard: Street Fighter V artwork depicts Khyber as a heavyweight.
- Knife Nut: Blade and F7 and how!
- The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: According to their SFV bios, Blade is from America, Khyber is from America and F7 is from America. Arcane, on the other hand, is from Poland.
- Palette Swap: Blade wears a red suit, Arcane wears blue, F7 wears black and Khyber wears yellow. Their Street Fighter V artwork differentiates them a lot more, with each of them having a unique looking mask and differing body types.
- Playing with Fire: Khyber and F7.
- Psycho Electro: Arcane and F7.
- Rubber Man: Khyber and F7, though this is downplayed or ignored as of their Street Fighter V descriptions.
- Spell My Name with an "S": It's either Arcane or Arkane, depending on whether you're looking at the English CFN website, or the Japanese site and the game he's originally from.
- Stun Guns: Blade and F7.
- Super Soldier: They're Shadaloo's elite troops.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Khyber's and Arcane's specialties are fire and electrocution attacks, just like Dhalsim and Blanka respectively.
- Teleport Spam: Arcane and F7.
Shin - South Korea
The sole new character of Street Fighter Online: Mouse Generation, a Japanese-Korean Taekwondo master whose father is a former Japanese Karate master, while his mother comes from a long line of Taekwondo masters from South Korea. Though, he didn't like fighting and would rather become a musician or painter. Eventually, he changes his tune after being inspired by seeing Alex battle Gerald Golby in a Vale Tudo tournament during his time in America. After seeing that fight, Shin returned home and returned to his TKD training.
- Bishōnen: A young man with full blonde hair, green eyes and movie star looks. He has pretty boy all over him.
- But Not Too Foreign: As mentioned in his bio, he's half Japanese and half Korean, he also has blonde hair.
- Canon Immigrant: Included in Street Fighter V's Character Reference after a near decade of uncertanty if he even was a Street Fighter character.
- Extremity Extremist: Uses kicks as most of his attacks.
- The Fighting Narcissist: Shin is a mild case, while he's relatively easy going, he has great confidence in himself, likes flashy things, and hates things that are plain, simple or what he precives to be uncool. He takes his appearance very seriously and the only reason he chose to study Taekwondo over Karate is because he thought TKD looked cool.
- I Know Karate: Subverted, he could have been a karateka, but choose to do the taekwondo thang instead.
- Original Generation: The only truly new character created for a game that was more like a crossover, than a true Street Fighter game.
- Sliding Scale of Free Will vs. Fate: Initially, Shin did not want to follow in his family's footsteps and become a fighter, as he did not like combat sports and had other interests. He changed his mind because the thought TKD was cool, but it's stated in his story that he was destined to be a fighter due to his lineage and his own personality. All it took was semi-final fight in America to change his tune.
