Introduced in Street Fighter II

    Arroyo Hawk 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sfa_arroyohawk.png

Origin: 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.
  • Heroic Lineage: He may well have passed on, but his son Thunder Hawk and fellow tribespeople Juli and Lily carry on his legacy as badass world warriors.
  • 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 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sf2_dorai.png

Origin: 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.

  • Canon Immigrant: Not the character itself but his name. It comes from the Street Fighter II V series.
  • Depending on the Artist: He's shown with a 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.
  • 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 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sf2thon_9.png

Origin: Japan

Four young sumos featured in Honda’s ending. Their names are Hatonoyama, Marunoumi, Yasuhanada, and Nishinofuji.


    Eliza Masters 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sf2_eliza_2.png
No matter how old you two get, it never ends.

Origin: United States
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, Julia, 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.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: She and her older sister look nearly identical. Some artists even depict them wearing the same hairstyle.
  • Understanding Boyfriend:
    • Eliza is a gender-inverted version. She's well aware that she will forever divide her life with her husband with his passion for fighting. In Street Fighter IV, when Ken antagonizes over whether to stay with his wife with their baby due any day now or take another opportunity to fight Ryu, Eliza tells him to go right ahead and do what he truly wants to. It's not like she or the baby will be going anywhere.
    • Briefly defied in the UDON comics, after Eliza walks out on Ken when it becomes clear that he'd choose a life of fighting over her. She comes back, though, just in time to give him the morale needed to win his match.
  • 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.
  • Women Are Wiser: Specially in IV, where she's a lot calmer than her husband.

    George Ginzu 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sf2_ginzu.png

Origin: 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: Not every member of Delta Red is a combatant; he's the tecchy Teen Genius of the team.

    Gorbachev 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sf2_gorbachev_1.png
Comrade Zangief, you have made your country proud and shown that the our country's spirit can overcome all obstacles.

Origin: Russia

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 it's unambiguously in the shape of the hammer and sickle of the Soviet Union flag.
  • 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.

    Julia & Chris 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/guilefamily.jpg
Chris (left) and Julia (right)
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. Julia is actually the older sister of Eliza Masters, making Guile and Ken brothers-in-law.


  • Dub Name Change:
    • Chris' name was changed to Amy in the English localization. This changed in 6, where it uses her original name in the English dub.
    • Julia was originally known as Jane in the English version of II.
  • Fangirl: Chris is a huge fan of Dee Jay, which puts Guile in the awkward position of having to listen to his music when he isn't a fan.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Chris is normally a boy's name, though it could easily be short for Christen or Christina.
  • Girls Love Stuffed Animals: Chris 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.
  • Pen Pals: Chris is actually good friends with Dhatta, Dhalsim's son. It's a plot point, since Dhatta comments on some things that Chris has told him about her dad's work and Dhalsim realizes something wrong is about to happen.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Julia and her younger sister Eliza look nearly identical. Some artists even depict them wearing the same hairstyle.
  • 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 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sf2_wolfman.png

Origin: 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.


  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Wolfman has a scar over his left eye, which was apparently given to him by Vega.
  • I Am Very British: Befitting his status as a high-ranking British officer, Wolfman is voiced with a clipped, authoritative RP accent — just like Cammy, in fact.
  • The Leader: He's the leader of Cammy's unit.
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome: He's tall, dashing, and sports long dark-brown hair.

    Lita Luwanda 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sf2_lita.png

Origin: 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.
  • Cool Big Sis: Lita thinks of Cammy as 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.

    Matthew McCoy 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sf2_mccoy.png

Origin: 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: Of the Delta Red squad — he's a clear foot taller than even Wolfman, and is enormously rotund to boot.
  • 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.

    Max & Scott 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sf5_scott_max.png

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.
  • 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.

    Sally & Dhatta 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sf2_sallyanddhatta.png

Origin: 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.
  • Inconsistent Spelling: Her name is spelled as either Sari or Sally depending on the source, while his name is either spelled Datta, Dhatta (accurate for Indian culture), or (going by SVC Chaos' "translation") Dadda.
  • 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.
  • Pen Pals: Dhatta is pen pals with Guile's daughter, Chris.
  • Rubber Man: According to Dhalsim in 6, Dhatta can stretch his limbs like his father, but doesn't do it very often because he thinks it's weird.
  • 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.
  • Teacher/Student Romance: Sally met Dhalsim when she was a student at his yoga school in Mumbai.
  • 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 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sf2_samantha.jpg
Oh, Jimmy! I just love spending time with you! It makes me so happy!

Origin: Brazil

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.


  • Cool Old Lady: She watches her son fight in the background of the Brazil stage in 6, and will bust out some surprisingly spry samba moves as each round concludes.
  • Depending on the Artist: Her appearance varies in each game. In the original Street Fighter II, is a relatively short old lady. In the HD Remix, she looks younger, but much more portly. IV makes her old again, but a bit taller, with much longer hair. The UDON comics also waffle 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 adores her son despite his feral appearance. In 6, she can be seen in the background of his Brazil stage, cheering him on with gusto.
  • Lampshade Hanging: When the Avatar interacts with her in World Tour mode in 6, she notes that she doesn't mind her son going by "Blanka" (even if she only refers to him as Jimmy), but also notes that she always thought it was a girls' name (which it is in Latin American countries) — a wry nod to the fact that Blanka's name is oddly ill-fitting and has often been thought a Non-Indicative Name by the series' fanbase.
  • 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.

Introduced in Street Fighter Alpha

    Bob 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/9acaab59_c5e9_44b7_92ac_17b17067844f.jpeg

Origin: 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 an overjoyed Dee Jay finds 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 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sf5_dolls.png
Top: Xiayu, Jianyu, Noembelu, Decapre
Middle: Satsuki, Juni, Juli, Santamu
Bottom: Enero, Février, März, Aprile

No choice... I must face my past dead on... I have to save you all... No turning back — Cammy.

Origin: Various / Shadaloo
Voiced by: note 

A group of twelve teenage girls 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.

Three among them have been Promoted to Playable throughout the series; Juni, Juli, and Decapre.


  • 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: A troop of 12 female fighting assassins of varying skill-sets and specialisations.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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. Unfortunately, by the time of 6, Cammy has already confirmed that she is dead, having perished from her fall and all traces of her remains obliterated by the Shadaloo base's explosion.
  • 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.
  • Killed Off for Real: Cammy's World Tour dialogue in 6 confirms that März died in V's story mode.
  • Malevolent Masked Woman: Decapre and, as of V, Xiayu and Satsuki.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The Quiet One: Noembelu.
  • Sexy Backless Outfit: Their normal uniforms, until V.
  • 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.
  • Youthful Freckles: Enero has them.

    Edi. E 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sf5_edi_e.png
Voiced by: note 

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.
  • Spell My Name With An S: In his appearance in High Score Girl, his name is spelled as "Eddy".
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: We haven't seen him for a while, but given that Cody is now Mayor as of Street Fighter V, Laser-Guided Karma may be due.

    Gou Hibiki 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sfa_gou_4.png
If you want anything from me, you'll have to take it by force.

Origin: Japan

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.


    Goutetsu 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sfa_goutetsu.png

Origin: 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.


  • 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.
  • Old Master: He was old, but he's also responsible for molding Akuma and Gouken into the warriors they are now.
  • 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 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sfa_ishizaki.png

Origin: 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.
    • In V, 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.

Origin: 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.
  • Satellite Character: As Sakura's close friend, she was first glimpsed in her Alpha 2 ending but became an Ascended Extra in the UDON comics.
  • 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.

    Maggio 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sfv_maggio.png

Origin: Italy

A young man searching for his missing older sister, Aprile, who was kidnapped by Shadaloo and turned into one of the dolls.


  • Anime Hair: His hair is similar to Charlie's or Vulcano Rosso's, with a prominent, right-angled quiff, but his is bright pink.
  • Fortune Teller: He seeks the help of one while looking for his sister, and now he's studying to become one.
  • Tragic Keepsake: His yo-yo was given to him by his missing sister.

    Mike Haggar 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ff_haggar.png

Voiced by: note 

A former pro wrestler who became the mayor of Metro City. He, alongside Guy and Cody, put a stop to the Mad Gear Gang and rescued his daughter Jessica. As of Street Fighter V, though, he is no longer Metro City's mayor, and has passed the position onto Cody. That said, his dedication to keeping Metro City safe has not wavered, and he still gives tips to his former contacts such as Lucia Morgan.


  • Action Politician: Back when he was mayor, he put a stop to both the Mad Gear Gang and the Skull Cross Gang by personally going out into the streets and beating up the gang members.
  • Improvised Weapon: He's known for hitting his enemies over the head with pipes. However, when passing his job onto Cody, he acknowledges that he only used more than his fists when he felt it was necessary, and encourages Cody to do the same. Now, Cody will only pull out his trademark knife or pipe during his V-Triggers.
  • Papa Wolf: Beat up an entire street gang after they kidnapped his daughter.
  • Retired Badass: As of V, Haggar has passed his job as mayor onto Cody.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: When he's out cracking the skulls of gang members, he wears no shirt.

    Shibasaki 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sfa_shibasaki.png
Miss Karin inspires us all.

Origin: Japan
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.
  • 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 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sfa_tsukishi.png

Origin: 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.
  • 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.

    Nadeshiko Yamato 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sfa_yamato_9.png

Origin: Japan
Voiced by: note 

A 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?
  • Wearing a Flag on Your Head: Her standard wrestling costume is based on the Japanese flag.
  • 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, though the moniker invokes her persona as a Captain Ethnic Japanese wrestler sporting a leotard emblazoned with her national flag.

    Yoko Harumage 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sfa_yoko_2.png

Origin: 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sf3_wu.png
So...the "Never-Dying Warrior" has been born...

Origin: China
Voiced by: note 

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.

  • 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.
  • 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.

    Effie 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sf3_effie.png
Ohh, poor Illya! I'll help you out!

Origin: Unknown (Russia?)
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.


  • Ascended Extra: In the SFIII games she’s simply Necro's companion who appears in his end-poses, 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.
  • Ascended Extra: The UDON comics series gives her more Character Development, including fighting abilities and powers that would have given her her own spot on the games' fighting roster. She also gets a more fleshed out backstory that reveals a new reason the Society and Urien are continuing to pursue her and Necro.
  • Captain Ersatz: While she started with twintails and Creepy Shadowed Undereyes, Art Evolution and Characterization Marches On circa Street Fighter V has updated her makeup and dyed the tips of her pigtails to make her an overt clone of DC Comics' Harley Quinn. Her mannerisms and pet names for Necro—"Sugar Plum" and "Puddin'" in the Street Fighter Unlimited comics—reinforce the similarities.
  • Chainsaw Good: Her CFN artwork depicts her with one.
  • Exhausted Eye Bags: Possibly a side-effect of her mutation. This paired with her pale skin make her look a little bit eerie.
  • 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.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: She shares this ideal with Necro, wanting to be free and lead a normal life with him as opposed to being the Society's lab rat.
  • Little Miss Badass: 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.
  • Secretly Dying: Kolin states that the experimentations that gave her her mutant abilities will slowly but surely end up killing her if she doesn't return to the Society so their doctors can find a way to stave it off. Effie chooses to remain free with Necro for however long she has left, instead.
  • 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 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sf3_elenafamily_6.png
Amina, Jafari and Marcus

Origin: Kenya

Elena's father Jafari, her mother Amina, and her brother Marcus.


  • Amazonian Beauty: Amina has the good looks of her daughter and a much more muscular body with defined arms and toned abs.
  • Can't Hold His Liquor: Jafari dislikes alcohol for this reason.
  • Combat Medic: Jafari is a warrior who spent his youth getting a PhD in pharmaceuticals and veterinary medicine.
  • 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.
  • 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 and kind.
  • 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.
  • Navel-Deep Neckline: Amina's top leaves most of her torso exposed, from her Underboobs to her navel.
  • 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 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sf3_gerald.png

Origin: 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.
  • The Cameo: Gerald makes an appearance as a competitor in the Nayshall Lowlands fighting tournament segment in World Tour mode in 6, and must be beaten to advance the story.
  • Jobber: Exists in-series purely as an opponent that Alex and Ken fought in various side tournaments to the main 3rd Strike arc.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: His name is an obvious play on Gerard Gordeau.
  • 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 third continental African character overall, after Elena and Menat (who hail from Kenya and Egypt respectively).

    Juliana Leigh, David Spender & Wayne Nakamura 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sf3_cia.png
Juliana, Wayne, and David
Send this picture out to each of our branches, security level 4! You are to start an investigation on this man immediately! Dismissed! — Wayne

Juliana 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 Juliana, 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: Juliana 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: Juliana.
  • 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: Juliana 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.
    • Juliana shares her birthday with Gillian Anderson, August 9th. Juliana's love of anime is likely 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. Juliana's last name, Leigh, is a reference to the actress' full name, Gillian Leigh Anderson. What's reversed is that Juliana is the one who believes in the supernatural, when Agent Scully was a skeptic, and it was Agent Mulder who was the believer.
  • 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: Juliana is apparently an anime fan.
  • Weight Woe: Juliana's weight is listed as being a secret.

    Hoimei & Shaomei

    The Judgement Girls 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sf3_judgementgirls.png
Top: Fair Libra, Lilly, Julia, Anna
Bottom: Rifa, Tonfa, Toli

Origin: Various

A group of girls from around the globe who show up whenever a match ends in a tie. Three of them appear at a time, and they hold up signs of who they choose to win the match, breaking the tie. This group includes Anna, a blonde Russian girl, Fair Libra, a tall African-American girl with rollerblades, Julia, an Englishwoman in riding gear, Lilly, a woman from India, and Chinese girls named Tonfa, Toli and Rifa. Necro's girlfriend Effie is also a part of the group.


  • All Girls Like Ponies: Julia's favourite hobby is horse riding and she's dressed accordingly in jodhpurs, black leather boots, and a hunting "pink" (her jacket). She belongs to the same riding club as Karin Kanzuki and even when she visits the beach in a bikini (as evidenced by her cameo on the Kanzuki Private Beach stage), she keeps her riding helmet and boots on, and her crop to hand.
  • Always Identical Twins: The Chinese girls are all sisters who look very similar.
  • Anime Chinese Girl: Rifa, Toli, and Tonfa, three Chinese girls all wearing qipao with floral patterns.
  • The Beautiful Elite: Julia is a member of the "Young Ladies of the World" Club, an elite, in-series group comprised of young women from around the globe that come from families of wealth and influence. Her fellow members are Pullum Purna from Saudi Arabia and Blair Dame of Monaco.
  • The Cameo: Julia, Anna, Tonfa, and Toli appear in the background of the Kanzuki Family Private Beach stage in Street Fighter V, while Fair Libra can be encountered as an NPC in Street Fighter 6.
  • Culture Equals Costume: All of the girls are dressed in outfits befitting their various countries of origin:
    • Anna (Russia) — wears thick, full-length furs and a traditional Russian ushanka hat.
    • Tonfa, Toli and Rifa (China) — all wear Qipao, and style their hair in traditional Chinese ways.
    • Julia (England) — is dressed for a traditional English hunt in smart riding clothes.
    • Lilly (India) — sports a prerequisite Indian sari.
    • Fair Libra (USA) — the US has no traditional national dress, but her baseball cap and sporty look are certainly appropriate.
    • Geisha (Japan) — she only ever appeared in concept sketches, but the Japanese judgment girl is dressed in full geisha regalia.
  • Dreadful Musician: Rifa dislikes singing because she can't do it.
  • Everyone Is Related: Lilly is apparently related to Dhalsim somehow.
  • Fear of Thunder: Julia is apparently afraid of it.
  • Feminine Women Can Cook: Cooking is one of Tonfa's hobbies, alongside sewing.
  • Genius Sweet Tooth: Anna loves sweets, dislikes bitter things like coffee, and wants to be a mathematician.
  • Genre Motif: Fair Libra is defined less by her nationality and more by her immersion in old-school hip-hop culture and music.
  • Head Swap: Tonfa, Toli, and Rifa all share the same basic animation, with the only difference between them being their heads and the floral patterns on their dresses.
  • Nice Girl: Toli is able to become friends with anyone, much like Elena.
  • Passionate Sports Girl: Rifa loves sports. Fair Libra seems sporty as well.
  • 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: Julia is the daughter of a wealthy English industrialist and a member of the "Young Ladies of the World" club. She is of an earnest disposition, and with her neat blonde hair and smart red riding clothes, she looks the part of a proper young English lady all set for a day of horse riding.
  • Rollerblade Good: Fair Libra is always shown wearing rollerblades.
  • Supreme Chef: Tonfa is a professional-level chef.
  • Talking with Signs: None of them actually talk. To make their judgment, they'll hold up signs with a picture of the character they want to win.
  • Tomboy: Fair Libra gives off this impression, with her rollerblades and a sporty attitude.
  • Tomboyish Baseball Cap: Fair Libra wears one.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Anna likes sweets, Julia likes parkin (a kind of gingerbread cake originating from Yorkshire), Lilly likes yogurt, Fair Libra likes pizza, and Toli likes xiaolonbao (Chinese dumplings).
  • Weight Woe: Much like Chun-Li and Patricia, Julia's weight is considered a secret.

    Li-Fen 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screenshot_2023_04_21_at_113819.png
Street Fighter III — V

Chun-Li...I wanna be strong, just like you are.

Origin: China
Voiced by: note 

A young Chinese girl who 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 are searching for.

She reappears in 6 as Chun-Li's full time pupil, with a new design to boot.


  • Action Girl: From 6 onwards. She does get herself 'kidnapped', but proves to be able to handle herself in combat by taking on a bunch of Mad Gear Gang thugs by herself when separated from the Avatar, and is still standing afterwards.
  • Anime Chinese Girl: In her younger years, she wears a traditional Chinese jacket, and Chun-Li shows her how to tie her hair into odango, as well as offering to teach her kung-fu.
  • Character Development: Compared to the shy, abused kid she's introduced as in V, Li-Fen has everything going well for her by 6; she's cheerier, more out-going, gets to her practice coding in peace and can defend herself thanks to knowing kung-fu. Being taken in by Chun-Li is easily the best thing that's ever happened to her.
  • Child Prodigy: She's a master hacker and is no more than 11-12 years old in V.
  • Cosplay Otaku Girl: Becomes this as a teenager. She even spends the entirety of Udon’s Street Fighter 6 mini-series decked out in a Japanese schoolgirl costume.
  • The Cutie: She's adorable, with vast puppy dog eyes and a sweet, gentle demeanor.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: She goes from a pair of simple pigtails to ox-horns just like Chun-Li’s — likely out of respect for her master.
  • Framing Device: Chun-Li telling her the story of how she became a fighter is used as such for Chun-Li's Character Story in V.
  • Happily Adopted: Chun-Li takes Li-Fen in as family following the events of V and III, although they refer to each other as sisters, with Li-Fen even affectionally referring to her as jie jie, meaning "older sister", but Chun-Li acknowledges that Li-Fen is young enough to be her daughter.
  • Shared Signature Move: Chun-Li's teachings have included her signature moves that she uses when fighting alongside the player character.
  • She's All Grown Up: She's no older than maybe 10 when she's introduced to the series. By 6 though, she appears to be somewhere in her teens and her martial prowess is acknowledged by Chun-Li.
    I'm sure she could handle herself without me. While it's nice to be able to say that, it's also a touch bittersweet.
  • Shrinking Violet: She's very soft-spoken and shy, but wants to be strong like Chun-Li. By 6 she's become a lot more outgoing.
  • Took a Level in Badass: By 6, she’s picked up a fair bit of kung-fu from studying under Chun-Li. Though she's nowhere near her master's level, seeing how easily Chun-Li schools her. At the very least she is probably her best student, seeing as she is the only one who can perform Chun-Li's full Kata, including the final straight-above-the-head leg stretch that everyone, including the player character, fumbles on. Later in the Mad Gear level she fights alongside the avatar and holds her own, even when separated from them.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Shaobing with extra meat.
  • Unwanted Rescue: Rashid's attempt to save her was unwanted, and also wasted time that he could have used to possibly save his friend from being killed by F.A.N.G.

    Masaru 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sf3_masaru.png

Origin: Japan

Makoto's father. He was the original sensei of the Rindo-kan dojo, until he died and passed the dojo onto his daughter.


  • Curb-Stomp Battle: He suffered from one shortly before his untimely death, against a strong opponent in South America, presumably Oro.
  • Does Not Like Spam: He notably detested gari (pickled ginger), just like his daughter does.
  • Posthumous Character: He's already passed away by the time of IV and III.

  • Deadpan Snarker: In the official prequel comic for 6, Days of the Eclipse, it's shown that Mel's grown to be just as cocky as his dad, making snide comments towards Luke, who's been assigned to escort him to Ken in Nayshall.

  • Groin Attack: He (accidently) delivers one to his dad in Ken's Second Impact ending, leaving him doubled over in agony.
  • Older Than They Look: He’s only three years old in III, but he looks at least twice as old.
  • Parental Issues: By the time of 6, the relationship between Mel and Ken has become strained. Though Ken has retired from fighting and now acts as the head of his family business, he still wants to be as much a part of Mel's life as ever, but he goes about doing this by taking Mel on business trips with him, without taking his son's feelings into account.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: He's apparently able to punch his dad in the groin hard enough to get him to concede victory.
  • Relationship-Salvaging Disaster: The first few issues of the prequel comic for 6 depict Mel as having become rather despondent in regards to his dad. However, Mel's perception of his father improves after JP kidnaps Mel, and Mel sees Ken's determination to save him firsthand. By the end of the comic, he's one of the few people who believes in Ken's innocence after JP frames him for the terrorist attacks in Nayshall.
  • Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome: As with most other young characters, Mel ages quite quickly from game to game.
  • Strapped to a Bomb: JP kidnaps him and straps him to a chair with a bomb underneath it in order to extort Ken into detonating a set of bombs that JP has placed all over Nayshall.

But of course, sir.

Origin: England

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 a British butler as you can get, plus even more dedicated. He'll deliver Dudley's afternoon tea by airlift if he has to.
  • Meaningful Name: His first name, Ortho, literally means "straight" or "upright".
  • Old Retainer: Mr. Gotch originally served Dudley's late father.
  • Punny Name: Take a look at his first two initials: OK, gotcha.
  • Quintessential British Gentleman: Just like Dudley, Mr. Gotch is a well-mannered Englishman.

    Narumi 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/narumi_stf.jpg

Origin: Japan

Elena’s best friend while she's an exchange student in Japan.


  • Big Guy, Little Guy: Elena towers a clear foot above Narumi, who has the archetypal "brainy-girl" look down pat.
  • Only Sane Man: Trying to get Elena to slow down riding her bike on a steep slope downhill.

    Pulk Hogen 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sf3_pulkhogen.png

A wrestler from the WWCA who faced Zangief in a match, but ended up getting knocked out by Sean after rampaging through the audience.


  • All There in the Manual: He only appears in a single picture from a piece of supplementary material about Street Fighter III, and nothing was known about him until the CFN website wrote about him.
  • Hoax Hogan: He's a rather obvious parody of Hulk Hogan. In addition to his name and his look, he also used to be a bodybuilder and was in a band. And they have the same birthday!
  • Sore Loser: Zangief threw him out of the ring, and he ended up rampaging through the audience. Sean, who was in the audience, ended up being the one to knock him out.

    Remy's Sister 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sfiii30324.png

Origin: France

The deceased sister of Remy, whose body has been preserved in ice by her brother.


  • Human Popsicle: Remy encased her in ice, not to keep her alive, but to preserve her body. He eventually lets her go by releasing her into the ocean.
  • Morality Pet: She's the one thing that Remy doesn't hate.
  • Posthumous Character: She's already dead by the time Remy first appeared.

    Sarai Kurosawa 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sf5_sarai.png

Origin: Japan

Ibuki's best friend in both school and ninja training. Of the two, Sarai has a much more normal life or is a fellow ninja depending on the media and is a lot more responsible. In Street Fighter X Tekken, she can actually be seen in action in the background of one of the stages. According to the Legends: Ibuki comic, this was pretty recent and she just started her training.

  • Depending on the Writer: In the mainline canon of the games Sarai is also a ninja and Ibuki's childhood friend. In the UDON comics Sarai is still Ibuki's childhood friend but she doesn't become a ninja until the Glade of Ninjas (at Ibuki's request) agrees to train her sometime after Sarai graduates High School.
  • Gamer Chick: She's a fan of puzzle games, with her favorite being Don't Pull from Three Wonders.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: She wears a pair of orange goggles around her head like a headband, but she's never shown actually using them for anything. An example of a late 90s (silly) fashion trend that's aged horribly.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: In the Legends: Ibuki comic, she grows jealous when Elena and Makoto start hanging out with Ibuki and ultimately gets into an argument with her that result in her not speaking to Ibuki for several months. When the two finally do talk again, she mentions that she just felt inadequate compared to the three since they're all fighters.
  • Meaningful Name: Ibuki's design is heavily inspired from "Linn Kurosawa", another Capcom character from another game. Sarai's last name is also Kurosawa to further tie Ibuki with the source character.
  • Muggle Best Friend: Prior to IV.
  • Out of Focus: While Ibuki doesn't appear much in side media either Sarai was a big part of Ibuki's own comic (especially after the out of focus in comic she received) and was present during the most dangerous parts despite being a normal girl. In Unlimited while Ibuki and her gal pals of Makoto and Elena are shown together Sarai is not mentioned once.
  • Straight Man: Compared to Ibuki, Sarai is a lot more responsible in both school and her ninja training, being much less boy-hungry and more level-headed.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Originally just a normal schoolgirl, she she eventually began training to be a ninja. She's even shown trying to pick a fight with Kunimitsu in Street Fighter X Tekken, and tries chasing her down after she refuses.

    Somsak

    Tom & Patricia 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sf3_tomandpatricia.png

Voiced by (Patricia): note 

Tom is Alex's trainer and surrogate father figure. He was friends with Alex's biological father, who died while in the army. Patricia is Tom's biological daughter, who treats Alex like a big brother.


  • Affectionate Nickname: Patricia tends to call Alex "Alec", and Alex shoots right back by calling her "Pat."
  • 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.

    Yuta Homura

    Candy

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.


  • 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.
  • Youthful Freckles: They're faint, but she does have three freckles on each cheek.

    The Cook 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/maxresdefault_496.jpeg

Origin: Mexico

El Fuerte’s co-worker at his restaurant, who is stunned how bad El Fuerte is at cooking.


  • Beleaguered Assistant: To El Fuerte, who's passion for cooking is only outmatched by his bizarre culinary ideas.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Calls El Fuerte “Professor” when it comes to his “creative” concept of making chili soup with aojiru.
  • No Name Given: His name is never stated during the scenes he's in.

    Hakan's Family 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sf4_hakanfamily.png
I love my daughters, they are so pretty! — Hakan

Origin: Turkey

Hakan's wife Melike, and their seven daughters, Abla, Susam, Hurmas, Tereyağı, Kanola, Zeytin and Ayçiçeği.


  • Always Identical Twins: Well, almost. Each of Hakan's seven daughters has a different hairstyle pattern. Otherwise, they look exactly the same aside from age.
  • Beauty Contest: Melike is apparently a former Miss Turkey.
  • 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 May-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"
    • Hurmas - "Persimmon"
    • Tereyağı - "Butter"
    • Kanola - "Rapeseed"
    • Zeytin - "Olive"
    • Ayçiçeği - "Sunflower"
  • Navel-Deep Neckline: Melike's outfit has a plunging neck that goes down to her stomach.
  • 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 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.
  • 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.

    Lauren 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sf4_lauren_2.jpg

Maya (Crimson Viper)'s daughter.


  • Cheerful Child: She's a very happy girl 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 isn’t truly a villain, she has no problem playing the part of one while undercover within S.I.N. during the events of IV, on top of being a condescending and dismissive person in general. To that end, her sincere love for her daughter, Lauren, is used to emphasize her Hidden Heart of Gold.

    Mech-Zangief 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sfmsh_mechzangief.png

Origin: Shadaloo

A robotic version of Zangief created by Shadaloo.


    Smalt Raven 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sf4_smartraven.png

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.
  • 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.
  • Master of Disguise: What he apparently excelled at before his death.
  • Posthumous Character: By the time IV starts, he's already dead.
  • Shock and Awe: He wore a special combat suit similar to Viper's.

Introduced in Street Fighter V

    Azam 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sfv_azam_5.png
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.
  • Battle Butler: He's friends with Zangief, and he intimidates Birdie after Rashid's battle with him, although he's never shown actually fighting until Street Fighter 6, where he can be fought much like any other NPC.
  • 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.
  • Character 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.
  • Failure Is the Only Option: A side mission in 6 requires the player to purposely lose a couple fights against Azam, as he demonstrates how to comfort one's master after they've been defeated in battle.
  • 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.
  • High-Class Glass: In 6, he wears a monocle over his right eye.
  • 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". 6 averts this in World Tour, where he speaks directly to the Avatar throughout Rashid's bonding missions, but he remains silent in Rashid's arcade story, where he merely stands in the background acting as a Silent Snarker to his master's antics.
  • 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 acquainted 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.
  • Secret A.I. Moves: When fought in 6, he generally uses a mix of Zangief and Rashid's moves, but with the addition of a unique command throw where he lifts the player above his head then tosses them high into the air, creating a tornado in the process.
  • 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 mustache and acts as a bodyguard/servant to another character? Sounds a lot like Darun Mister.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: His outfit in V is just a vest. Averted in 6, where he wears a full uniform.

Voiced by: note 

A Texas-born General in the United States Air Force, and Guile's boss. He's a combat sambo master, and a workaholic.


  • Bald of Authority: He’s a bald USAF captain general and Guile's superior officer in the V era. By the time of 6, he’s gone a Rank Up, becoming a United States Senator.
  • Continuity Nod: He appears in the background of Guile’s stage, as well as in the story mode in V, and by the time of 6, he has an entire aircraft carrier named in his honour, which acts as Guile's stage.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He plays a role in the Cinematic Story Mode, but prior to that mode's release, he appears as one of the background characters in the Air Force Base stage.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: He has a scar over his right eye.
  • Heroes Love Dogs: He's a dog lover, and has five bulldogs.
  • Workaholic: He loves to work, though his work-first philosophy has apparently weakened his domestic life.

    Daigo Kazama 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/akirav_6.png

Origin: Japan
Voiced by: note 

Akira's older brother, who assists her in some of her attacks. Leader of Gedo High's gang, Daigo is fiercely determined to protect his hometown, and teaches his followers on how to do so. When the kidnapping and attacks strike local schools prior to the events of United By Fate, Daigo sets out to find out who is behind it. He does find out the student council president of Justice Academy, Hyo Imawano, is The Man Behind the Man and challenges him to a fight, but is defeated and becomes a brainwashed servant of Hyo. It takes the intervention of his sister Akira and two of his gang's most loyal members, Eiji "Edge" Yamada and Gan Isurugi, to break him out of it. Disappointed by the loss, Daigo set out to train himself to avoid such a defeat. During that time, he is somehow turned into a brainwashed sleeper agent of Kurow Kirishima, which segues into Project Justice. Under Kurow's influence, Daigo orders Edge, Gan and the rest of Gedo's gang to attack the other schools, which concern Edge and Gan to the point where they team up again with Akira (now enrolled in the Seijyun Ladies' Academy) to knock some sense into Daigo. Depending on the ending, either they succeed in breaking Daigo out of his brainwashing and Daigo sets off to train himself again, or he dies from fighting them too many times.

  • Assist Character: One of Akira's V-Triggers involves her summoning her brother Daigo for a Dynamic Entry-esque Goomba Stomp. Her Critical Art also entails him joining his little sister in laying the smackdown on her opponent.
  • Badass Back: Invoked in one of Akira's V-Triggers, where his turning his back on her opponent is accompanied by a Battle Aura that can blow the opponent away. Fittingly, the V-Trigger is called "Otoko no Senaka" ("A Real Man's Back").
  • Badass Longcoat: Befitting his role as a heroic delinquent leader.
  • Big Brother Instinct: According to Dan's description of Akira's Summer outfit, Daigo is rather quick to beat up any boy that shows off even the slightest interest in his little sister. Going by the aforementioned description, Dan himself can apparently testify to this.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has a scar running straight down his right eye. That being said, Daigo himself is firmly on the side of good.
  • Goomba Stomp: He appears by literally dropping onto Akira's opponent, feet first.
  • Japanese Delinquents: Unlike the other students of Gedo, Daigo aims to work these tendencies out of his gang.
  • Sarashi: When playing as Akira in her Tracksuit alternate costume, his outfit also changes to that of a tracksuit as well, which reveals that he wears this.
  • Shonen Hair: Well, he's technically a seinen.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Just about anything his sister cooks, especially when it's anything sweet.

Voiced by: note 

A wrestling announcer and talk show host that appears in Zangief's story and the Cinematic Story, commentating a tag-team match of Zangief and R. Mika vs. Alex and Laura.


  • All There in the Manual: Everything about him from his name to his backstory isn't explained in-game, where he appears in Zangief's story, where he's simply credited as "Ring Announcer", and one scene in the cinematic story.
  • Captain Ersatz: He's basically WWE legend Jimmy Hart in all but name. Megaphone(s)? Check. Cool Shades? Check. Long '80s Hair and Porn Stache? Check. Attention-getting, bombastic personality? Super check.
  • Dreadful Musician: Downplayed. He started his career as a rock musician, but his band never took off. However, his stage presence still helped him in the end, as the CWA specifically asked for him to work for them as a commentator.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Possibly. He may or may not be the man in the yellow suit that appears in Balrog's stage in Street Fighter II. They already look very similar, and when the stage was remade for Street Fighter V, Don Sauvage is there.
  • Large-Ham Announcer: It's his job to hype up the crowds outside the casino where Balrog fights.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: He's a very thinly-veiled take on WWE legend Jimmy Hart.
  • Wearing a Flag on Your Head: He wears an Uncle Sam hat when he's working as a wrestling commentator.

    Jade Goat 

Origin: Unknown

One of Crimson Viper's fellow CIA operatives and contact during the events of Street Fighter V.

  • Animal Motif: The goat. Similarly to Crimson Viper name.
  • Color Motif: Much like fellow CIA operatives Crimson Viper and Smalt Raven, Jade Goat's codename is a color followed by an animal, with jade being the name of a green gemstone.
  • The Ghost/The Voiceless: Only mentioned once by Viper in M. Bison’s prologue story and never seen or heard.

Origin: India
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.
  • 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.
  • Tender Tears: He was apparently reduced to tears by a movie called "Ajwain's Tears", a poster of which appears in the background of Dhalsim's India stage in V.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Curry, just like Dhalsim.

Secretary to the Metro City mayor. She previously worked for Mike Haggar, and promised him to keep a close eye on the new mayor, Cody Travers.


  • Beleaguered Assistant: She's the hardworking assistant to a reluctant mayor.
  • Expy: Of Sara Bellum from The Powerpuff Girls, another Beleaguered Assistant to an inept mayor who wears red and has her face obscured in every scene she appears in.
  • The Faceless: There seems to be an effort to keep her face mostly hidden. Due to her thick glasses and long hair, only the bottom half of her face has been shown in full. During Cody's character story, her face is at one point blocked by Cody's arm, and at another her face is hidden in shadow with only her glasses visible. Similarly, in Cody's V Arcade Mode ending, only the bottom half of her face is shown.
  • Male Gaze: Three panels in Cody's V Arcade Mode ending show Marlowe's butt prominently.
  • Mustache Vandalism: She has a little fun with this in Cody's V Arcade Mode ending, messing with a photo on Cody's desk of him, Haggar, Guy and Jessica. She gives Haggar a bowl-cut, lipstick, and a hairier chest and arms, while Guy is given a katana, a samurai ponytail, rosy cheeks, a mustache and a goatee. Finally, she draws a heart around Cody and Jessica's faces.
  • Not So Above It All: Although normally unflappable, even she can take some time to have a little fun. In Cody's Arcade Mode ending in V, doodling on a picture taken of him, Jessica, Guy, and Haggar after the events of Final Fight.
  • Opaque Nerd Glasses
  • Sassy Secretary: Constantly berates Cody for his irresponsibility and spaciness.
  • Scary Shiny Glasses: Her glasses give off this effect after she finds Cody fighting Zeku after having wandered away from her.
  • Sexy Secretary: She's Cody's assistant and easy on the eyes.
  • Shipper on Deck: She seems to want Cody and Jessica to get back together, as she draws a heart around a photo of the two during happier times.
  • They Call Me MISTER Tibbs!: Often referred to as Miss Marlowe.

    The Matsuda Family 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sf5_matsudas.png
Top: Fabio, Enzo, Manuela
Bottom: Kinjiro, Yuichiro, Brenda

Origin: 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.


  • All There in the Manual: Complete detail of the extended Matsuda clan was revealed on the Character Reference at the Capcom Fighters Network official website. Only Laura and Sean make an appearance in the story, while the rest of the family is never mentioned by name.
  • Badass Bookworm: Fabio, the oldest of the Matsuda siblings, lists "reading" as his favorite thing on his bio.
  • Badass Family: All of them are skilled in either Brazilian jiu-jitsu or capoeira.
  • But Not Too Foreign: The first Japanese immigrants arrived in Brazil in 1908 and today Brazil is home to the largest Japanese population outside Japan. As of 2014 there were approximately just under 1.5 million Japanese-brazilians, so their case isn't that unusual. Their mother's side of the family, the da Silvas, however, are Portuguese-heritage Brazilians and therefore more commonplace.
  • Dance Battler: Cousin Enzo and his sister Manuela are capoeiristas, a fighting style that is based on dance moves.
  • Dreadlock Warrior: Both Fabio and his cousin Enzo favour this hairstyle, and are skilled in jiujitsu and capoeira respectively.
  • 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 Kinjiro, his son Yuichiro, and the four out of five Matsuda/da Silva cousins; Fabio, Laura, Enzo and Manuela.

So far, Ed has recruited Falke, a super-intelligent gorilla named Baba Mwalimu, a lanky man with crazy hair named Cypher, and a blond man who can alter his body mass named Dobermann. A number of other members also appear in an art book.

In 6, there are seemingly other entities that use the name "Neo Shadaloo" who are plotting a revival of the organized crime syndicate, with plans to make Ed or JP their leader.


  • Alphabetical Theme Naming: The current members of Ed's Neo Shadaloo are named in alphabetical order: Amrita, Baba (Mwalimu), Cypher, Dobermann, Ed, Falke, and Goliath.
  • Animal Testing: Shadaloo's cruel experiments with Psycho Power were not limited to humans, as they performed testing on animals such as a gorilla (Baba Mwalimu) and a dolphin (Amrita).
  • Animal Theme Naming: There's Falke (German for "Falcon") and Dobermann, as well as three characters named after the three monkeys, Mizaru (See No Evil), Kikazaru (Hear No Evil), and Iwazaru (Speak No Evil).
  • Bad Powers, Good People: Ed's Neo Shadaloo's leaders underwent experiments that forced them to use Psycho Power while they were Shadaloo's captives, but this group is a group of heroes.
  • Big Sister Instinct: Falke plays the role of a big sister within Ed's group and towards Ed himself.
  • Deathbringer the Adorable:
    • In general, Ed's group represents a group of Shadaloo victims, but unlike Shadaloo, the organization is a force of good instead of evil. Ed, who at the time of founding the organization was a child in an adult's body due to Rapid Aging, did not understand the implications of naming the group "Neo Shadaloo", invoking the name of a globally infamous Nebulous Evil Organization.
    • A more specific example is Goliath, who despite their name is little more than an infant.
  • Expy: Kikazaru is a robot girl with a detachable head, making her very similar to Alisa.
  • The Faceless: Iwazaru's face is completely obscured by a monkey that clings to him.
  • Gentle Gorilla: One of them — Baba Mwalimu ("Father Teacher" in Swahili) — happens to be a gorilla.
  • Goo-Goo-Godlike: Another unusual test subject/team member is an actual baby named Goliath, and whilst it’s currently unknown what the infant's true abilities with Psycho Power are, or how powerful he’ll be, one piece of art, set in a Neo Shadaloo pool hall, shows him psycho-kinetically levitating a set of pool balls.
  • Heroic Dolphin: One member of Ed's group is an actual dolphin named Amrita (Sanskrit for "Immortality"), who sports a jaunty little garrison cap to boot.
  • Improbable Hairstyle: Cypher’s hair is a curly, triangular mass that connects to his beard.
  • In the Hood: Iwazaru wears a hood, which in addition to the monkey clinging onto his face, completely obscures his head.
  • Intelligent Primate: Baba Mwalimu inherits Bison's wisdom and intellect, which, according to Ed, allows them to "quadruple their brain matter". Naturally, they would serve as Neo Shadaloo's computer hacker.
  • Monochromatic Eyes: Baba Mwalimu has glowing blue eyes.
  • Not Evil, Just Misunderstood: Ed's group's name and its leaders' use of Psycho Power suggests that it is evil to several of the other heroes. It is actually not evil, and opposes Shadaloo.
  • The Quiet One: According to Ed, Cypher is not a very talkative person, tending only to give single-word answers.
  • Team Mom: The chubby Hawaiian girl is stated to exhibit a motherly instinct for the rest of the team.
  • Team Pet: Interestingly, the group, particularly Baba Mwalimu, is accompanied by a golden lion tamarin named Kiki, whom fans will recognize from the previous game as the pet monkey of fellow Doll Santamu. The monkey appearing alongside Baba Mwalimu in several artworks, as well as the appearance of several Dolls in Ed's World Tour artwork in 6, implies that an alliance was made between the Dolls and Neo Shadaloo long after the events of A Shadow Falls.
  • Teleport Spam: Cypher inherits Bison's ability to teleport in a blink of an eye.
  • Temporary Bulk Change: Dobermann can morph his body mass into any shape he wants, based on data collected from Dhalsim.
  • Weapon Specialization: Cypher specializes in knives, which he can also Dual Wield.

She's the agent working for Shadaloo! We have the authority to arrest her!

Origin: Brazil
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
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: He doesn't have much technique, having about as much finesse as your standard street thug. Considering he was fighting a Special Forces agent, even if unknowingly, gotta respect the stones on the guy.
  • 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 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rashidfriend.png
I have to go now, Rashid. One last thing: please enjoy the rest of your life. Goodbye.

Origin: Unknown
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.


  • Childhood Friends: Rashid mentions having known her since the two were kids.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    Robert Sullivan 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/robsullivan.png
Luke's father, who gave his life saving his son and a group of bystanders from an IED.


  • Death by Origin Story: His death is what sets Luke on his path as a fighter.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: After spotting an IED in a crowded mall, he guided Luke and a group of bystanders to safety, but died in the ensuing explosion.
  • Hidden Depths: By Luke's own admission, Robert was a quiet man, never even raising his voice at home, so he was surprised that when he spotted the IED, he immediately kicked into action took charge to warn everyone of the impending danger.
  • Posthumous Character: He died back when Luke was still a kid.

    Shadaloo Soldiers 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sfv_shadaloosoldiers.png

Origin: Shadaloo

M. Bison's minions who carry out his will. Their uniforms represent their rank. The blue-clad soldiers are the lowest rank, in charge of base security and other odd jobs. The green-clad soldiers with red berets are the mid-rank, going on field missions with the Four Kings of Shadaloo. The red-clad soldiers are the highest rank, and are able to wield Psycho Power. There's also the white-clad medical personnel, in charge of the well-being of the other soldiers and also performing experiments in a research lab.


  • Eye-Obscuring Hat: The Low-Rank Soldiers wear helmets that do this.
  • Gold-Colored Superiority: Extra Battle mode features weekly fights against these guys, where they're given gold or silver plating, as well as a boost in strength and health.
  • In the Hood: The High-Rank Soldiers wear red hoods.
  • Joke Character: None of them are exactly hard to beat in a fight. They mainly fight using clumsy versions of Bison's moves and have extremely low health. The ones fought in Extra Battle mode, though, can potentially put up a difficult fight, with them being given some armored moves and more health.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Among the mid-rank soldiers is a character named Sergeant Ashida, who provides commentary on costumes and colors on the CFN website, often making hints at what they are references to.
    Sgt. Ashida: (On Menat's Battle Outfit) Wrapped up in bandages, Menat looks similar to Cleopatra. Wonder if those bandages work for detox? For Color 13, I can envision her leaping off a futuristic skyscraper.
    Sgt. Ashida: (On Ed's School Uniform) Honor student Ed, from the private Street Fighter Academy. Balrog's certainly happy about Ed's academic success. Don't you think he looks a bit like Roy from Pacific High School?
    Sgt. Ashida: (On Kilin's Holiday Outfit) Kolin with her own take on the holiday look. You might be thinking - those are the wrong colors! I'd agree, but sometimes you just gotta let it go...
  • Malevolent Masked Man: The High-Rank Soldiers wear masks that cover the lower halves of their faces.
  • Mascot Mook: The CFN website where most supplementary information about the Street Fighter canon comes from is portrayed as being run by these guys, with various developers taking on the roles of soldiers in the army.
  • Military Salute: The ones that appear in the Shadaloo Base stage will salute whenever Bison, Vega, Balrog or F.A.N.G wins a round.
  • Monochromatic Eyes: The Mid-Rank and High-Rank Soldiers have these, likely due to the influence of Psycho Power.
  • Mooks: They're all a part of Bison's army. Individually, though, they're not very strong.
  • Vile Villain, Laughable Lackey: While they can be potentially threatening, most of the time they're not meant to be taken seriously. In the Shadaloo Base stage, they'll watch the fight just as excitedly as any other background character, and they'll only get serious so they can salute when one of the Four Kings of Shadaloo wins a match.

    Shadow Lady 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sfv_shadow_lady_1.jpg

Origin: Shadaloo
Voiced by: note 

A non-canon "What If?" version of Chun-Li originally created for the crossover game Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes. Having been forcibly cyborgized into a brainwashed minion for Shadaloo and augmented with their technology, she is now a pure killing machine named Shadow Lady, dedicated to expand their criminal operations. She also appears as a secret boss in the Extra Battle Mode in V.

  • Alternate Self: She is an alternate version of Chun-Li who was kidnapped, unwillingly roboticized and brainwashed to become a Shadaloo minion.
  • Black Screen of Death: Her Critical Art is the Shichisei Ranka (aka Final Mission), which has been turned into her own version of Akuma's Raging Demon. The screen turns black, she administers a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown via a a flurry of fast kicks and white explosions while she trashes the opponent.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: She can morph her hands into a drill and use it as a charging attack, courtesy of her Abnormal Limb Rotation Range.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Chun-Li is forcibly turned into a robotic enforcer for Shadaloo.
  • Canon Immigrant: The Shadaloo Combat Research Institute profiles on the Street Fighter V Character Encyclopedia website has an entry for her.
  • Cyborg: Forcibly robotized against her will by Shadaloo, with her body containing a veritable arsenal of high-tech weaponry that demonstrate her cybernetic nature.
  • Cybernetics Eat Your Soul: Shadaloo added a Restraining Bolt to her programming, rendering her an emotionless minion fully loyal to them...at first.
  • Darker and Edgier: Shadow Lady is a darker, evil and more powerful version of Chun-Li created by Shadaloo.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Once her memories return and she joins Shadow in their efforts to stop Shadaloo.
  • Double Jump: Her triple jump, thanks to built-in Rocket Boots.
  • Energy Shield: She can use the Plasma Barrier to zap and stun opponents. It can be also used as an anti-air.
  • Energy Weapon: She can fire the Big Bang laser beam from her hands in Marvel vs. Capcom.
  • Evil Costume Switch: Once Bison has her under her employ, Chun-Li now dresses in a dark blue qipao with glowing yellow Tron Lines, and her full body is entirely obscured.
  • Forced into Evil: Captured and forced into becoming an evil enforcer by Bison and Shadaloo.
  • Heel–Face Turn: In her Marvel vs. Capcom arcade ending, she breaks free of M. Bison's control, regains her memories as Chun-Li and joins forces with Shadow to take him down to atone for the crimes she committed under Shadaloo. She and Shadow then convert Jin into a cyborg after finding him mortally wounded by Onslaught.
  • Homing Projectile: The three missiles fired from her back home on an opponent. She can also launch a Macross Missile Massacre in Marvel vs. Capcom.
  • Hyperspace Arsenal: Drills, plasma beams, missiles and electric shield, all contained within her metallic frame.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Like normal Chun-Li, but only much faster and stronger as a boss character. Her boss battle is insanely tough as she has more armor, leaves behind afterimages that are distracting, and takes little damage. She can dish out devastating combos that can whittle down the player's health very rapidly. The only mercy in this fight is that her attacks don't affect the player's stun gauge.
  • Made of Phlebotinum: Her drills are made of an alloy of "Light Ceramical Titanium" armor, the Japanese name of "Ceratanium".
  • Not Herself: After first reawakening as Shadow Lady, she retains no traces of her personality as Chun-Li and behaves like, well, a robot who's been programmed to obey Shadaloo.
  • Prayer Pose: While bowing down, the Galaxy Missiles fire off from her back.
  • Paint It Black: She appears as if she was painted completely black.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Her eyes have turned red, showing that she is under Shadaloo's control.
  • Reforged into a Minion: Forcibly converted into a brainwashed cyborg by Shadaloo. Unlike Chun-Li, Shadow Lady is a calculating and near-robotic individual dedicated solely to aiding Shadaloo's criminal activities...at least for a while.
  • Robot Girl: Her Extra Battle Mode challenge in V describes her as a "mysterious mech." Much of Chun-Li's body has been mechanized, with built-in homing missiles from her back, an electric barrier to zap her opponents, miniature Vernier thrusters that enable flight, and drills in her hands.
  • Rocket Boots: Although her feet have miniature Vernier thrusters, they only allows her to dash in mid-air, not fly properly.
  • Secret Boss: Only appears as an extra boss battle in V's Extra Battle Mode for a limited time.
  • SNK Boss: She plays by Marvel-style rules and even the Street Fighter website describes her as being brutally tough with devastating combos that can whittle a player's health easily while taking little damage.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Unlike in Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes where she explodes after being defeated, Shadow Lady instead short-circuits after being knocked out.
  • Speed Echoes: Leaves behind afterimages as she moves around, which are very distracting.
  • Super-Soldier: The intention from Bison's experients on her: to turn his Arch-Enemy into a powerful enforcer bent to his will.
  • Swiss-Army Appendage: Her hands can morph into drills for a charging attack.
  • The Bus Came Back: Shadow Lady comes back as a boss challenge after years of absence.
  • This Is a Drill: Her body has been plated with Ceratanium armor that can shapeshift into several forms. Most notably, she can turn her hands into drills for a charging attack.
  • Tron Lines: The gold outlines on her outfit emit a pulsating glow, signifying her cyberized nature.
  • Turned Against Their Masters: She follows Shadow in this after her memories return.
  • Unwilling Roboticization: Chun-Li was forcibly robotized by Shadaloo. Her modifications granted her some new abilities too, such as hiding missiles within her body or generating an Energy Shield around her.
  • Videogame Dashing: Her Air Dash has the ability to rocket forward with her legs trailing after her, allowing her to evade enemies and launch potential combos. This is because she has Vernier thrusters in her feet that enable such abilities.
  • X-Ray Sparks: She protects herself with a plasma barrier that electrifies enemies. Said electrocution makes the player's skeleton visible.

    T.U.S.K & T.A.I.L 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sfv_nguuhao.png
Even if he only grazes you, you'll eventually melt to nothing. — T.A.I.L

Origin: Somewhere in Asia
Voiced by: note 

F.A.N.G's subordinates, who were killed along with the rest of the Nguuhao in their failed attack against M. Bison.


  • All There in the Manual: Their names are only given on the CFN website. In-game, they're only known as Nguuhao Lieutenants A and B.
  • Everyone Is Related: T.U.S.K is apparently related to Wong Who, one of the members of the Mad Gear Gang from Final Fight.
  • Fat and Skinny: T.U.S.K is the fat, while T.A.I.L is the skinny.
  • Fun with Acronyms: Their codenames are written out this way, though they likely don't actually stand for anything.
  • Poisonous Person: As members of the Nguuhao, they have the ability to generate poison from their bodies.

    Two-P 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sfv_twop.png

Originally a member of the Mad Gear Gang, Two-P acts as the NPC opponent in the Bonus Stage of Arcade Mode.


  • Delinquent Hair: Has an orange mohawk.
  • Expy: Two-P is based on the Player 2 character from Forgotten Worlds, hence his name ("Two-P" as in "2P" or "Player 2"). This is once again brought up in Two-P's SFV bio, implying that he is the same 2P from Forgotten Worlds.
  • Mysterious Past: Two-P was found by Mad Gear collapsed half-naked in the street with no idea who he is.
  • Throw a Barrel at It: In Arcade Mode's Bonus Stage, he tries to mess up your attempts at breaking all the barrels, which includes throwing them at you.

    The Warrior Prophet 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sfv_prophet.png
To witness Necalli...is to know that you are a true and strong warrior.

Origin: Aztec Empire
Voiced by: note 

An Aztec warrior who acts as the Framing Device for Necalli's Character Story.


  • Animal Motif: Snakes. His headdress resembles a snake's head, and he has a pair of golden snakes wrapped around his legs.
  • Badass Preacher: It's said Necalli only appears to true warriors, and Necalli appeared before him eventually, though it ended in a Curb-Stomp Battle: With the Prophet getting consumed.
  • Covered in Scars: He has X and V-shaped scars all over his body, which are retained by Necalli after it eats him.
  • Framing Device: Him espousing on the legend of Necalli is the Framing Device for Necalli's story.
  • Mayincatec: He's an Aztec warrior, though this isn't specified in-game.
  • No Name Given: He's just known as the Warrior Prophet. His true name seems to have been lost to the sands of time.
  • Posthumous Character: He's assimilated by Necalli long before Street Fighter V takes place.
  • The Prophecy: He says that Necalli will hunt down and devour Ryu (for his Satsui no Hado), Dhalsim (for the power given to him by Agni), and Bison (for his Psycho Power), before being eaten himself. He's wrong.

    Willa Maiu 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/willa.jpeg

Origin: Thailand

Sagat's faithful pet tiger who accompanies him wherever he goes.


  • A Dog Named "Dog": 'Willa' is an archaic Thai term for a cat. 'Maiu' is likely a transliteration error of 'Maew', the usual word for cat in Thai. So his name is essentially something like 'Kitty Cat' in English.
  • Panthera Awesome: No other animal is more appropriate for Sagat than a tiger.
  • Right-Hand Cat: A more heroic example than most, since Sagat is a former villain turned into a Jerk with a Heart of Gold.

    Yoga Masters 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sfv_yogamasters.png
Top: Master Y, Gulab Jamun, Amitahb
Bottom: Sheila, Mahabali G, Jagjit

Origin: India / United States (Sheila)

Six yoga masters residing in India. Rashid mentions seeing them listed online as "the world's seven greatest Yoga Masters you gotta meet at least once", with Dhalsim being the seventh listed member. Sheila is the American in the group, whilst the rest are from India.


  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Master Y is purple, Gulab is green, Sheila is pink, Mahabali G is red, and Jagjit is blue. Amitahb and Dhalsim are the only ones with regular skin colors, although Amitahb has a hint of yellow in his skin.
  • Balloon Belly: Gulab Jamun's ability is to inflate himself like a balloon.
  • Blessed with Suck: Gulab Jamun's power of inflating is useful in defending himself, but it also means that he doesn't have any disciples, since blowing up like a balloon isn't exactly a power most people want.
  • Career-Ending Injury: Mahabali G used to be a cricket player, but injured his neck while playing, and he turned to yoga for answers.
  • Delinquent Hair: Sheila has a white mohawk.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Gulab Jamun is named after a South Asian sweet that's pretty popular in the Indian subcontinent, and is usually reserved for major celebrations like festivals, birthdays, and weddings.
  • Foreign Fanservice: Sheila, the scantily clad female of the group, is the only one not native to India, originally hailing from New York.
  • Hypocrite: Mahabali G is stated to hate people with arrogant attitudes, but became arrogant himself once he became famous.
  • Implacable Man: When Gulab Jamun inflates himself, he becomes invulnerable to enemy attacks.
  • Levitating Lotus Position: Jagjit is shown doing this.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Sheila wears very little clothing and her main yoga power is her amazing flexibility. She also has a yoga DVD that sold extremely well, probably for this reason.
  • The Quiet One: Amitahb spends months at a time meditating. When people ask him for answers, it could take him months to answer, meaning whatever problem he was asked about is usually solved by the time he answers.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: Master Y is able to do this, with dangerous animals becoming meek near him.
  • Super-Strength: Mahabli G's yoga power. He famously lifted four elephants using his legs.
  • Teleportation: Jagjit's specialty. He once saved a group of fifty people from a flood by teleporting them all away to safety at once.
  • The Voiceless: Master Y can't speak normally, only communicating through telepathy.

    Yuriko Hibiki 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sfmsh_yuriko.png

Origin: Japan
Voiced by: note 

Dan Hibiki's little sister. She originally appeared in Dan's ending in Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, but eventually found her way into Street Fighter V where she acts as the game's shopkeeper.

  • Actual Pacifist: She's not a fighter, and she wishes her brother would settle down.
  • Adaptational Attractiveness: Her appearance in V makes her into your average cute Japanese schoolgirl, but in her original appearance, she had the exact same face as Dan.
  • Canon Immigrant: It's explicitly mentioned in her profile that she's from a parallel universe, and sarcastically refers to her as a "very real" character. She was eventually given canon status as the shopkeeper in V.
  • Expy: Of Yuri Sakazaki, right down to even having a similar first name.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: She was about to reveal this about Akuma to Dan in his ending, only to be cut off by the "The End" screen.
  • Passionate Sports Girl: She's a pitcher on her school's softball team.
  • Remember the New Guy?: She appears literally out of nowhere in Dan's ending. Her profile states that she travels the world with her brother, bragging about his fighting style, and that somehow Dan, the player, and the developers of the game never noticed her.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: In her original appearance, she was literally just Dan's head pasted onto the body of a Japanese schoolgirl. Toned down in V in order to make her look cuter, although she does have the same forelock as her brother.
  • Take That!: In the same way that her brother is a parody of Ryo and Garcia from Art of Fighting, Yuriko is a parody of Yuri, Ryo's sister, from the same game. Yuriko appears in Dan's ending to prevent him from finishing off Akuma with the revelation that they're related, just like how Yuri prevents Ryo from finishing off Mr. Karate by telling him that he's their father. This is also extended to her voice in Street Fighter V, when Shizuka Itō does an almost flawless impersonation of both Kaori Horie (Yuri's previous voice actress) and in less degree, Ai Kakuma's (her current VA) voice.

Introduced in Street Fighter 6

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/street_fighter_6___world_tour__fighting_ground__battle_hub_game_mode_trailer___ps5___ps4_games_0_37_screenshot__1.jpeg
Promotional appearance
Origin: Various
Voiced by: note 

The Player Character of World Tour mode. A prospective recruit at Buckler Security Services, Luke helps to send them off on a journey around the world and hone their talents.

  • The Ace: They learn the techniques and martial arts styles of the base roster, regardless of how mystical or frankly outlandish some of their fighting styles are. This includes Dhalsim's ability to elongate and stretch his limbs, Blanca's Shock and Awe, and even the Psycho Power from JP and Ed.
  • All Your Powers Combined: By training with 6's roster long enough, they become able to use all their moves, mixing and matching them as they please.
  • And the Adventure Continues: After the Final Boss battle, the PC informs Luke of what's transpired, with the latter asking if their journey's over. Upon telling him otherwise, Luke notes that they have unfinished business and offers them some "coachly" advice by saying their journey doesn't have an ending. While it's uncertain what the PC intends to do now as far as the story is concerned, in gameplay this translates to throwing the PC back into the game world and completing their training with their mentors.
  • Bad Powers, Good People:
    • The Psycho Power they inherit from JP (or at least a portion of it) was previously used by a madman hellbent on controlling the world and is currently being used by a man enacting a money laundering scheme in a foreign country, nevermind the ominous and dark nature of the Psycho Power in itself. In the hands of the Player Character, however, it's mainly used to help refine and assist them in honing their skills as a martial artist.
    • The Avatar is able to learn and use A.K.I's full list of poisonous attacks after being led to her location in China.
  • Cant Hold Their Liquor: They obviously can't handle their first sip of Jamie's Gargle Blaster and get seriously hammered when trying to take that sip.
  • Character Development: Not in terms of character growth, but in fighting ability. At the start of World Tour, the PC struggles to learn and mimic the fighting abilities of their mentors, as seen in cutscenes when they unlock that character's fighting style. As you progress through World Tour, however, they learn much more quickly and show little problem in imitating their fighting style, with the obvious exceptions of characters who fight using more mystical abilities.
  • Didn't Think This Through: When they fail to disarm the Championship Belt bomb in time, their only option at this point is to directly enter the Nayshall Tournament and make it to the top in hopes of gaining the belt so that it can presumably be defused or removed from the area before its activation. Li-Fen outright lambasts the absurdity of this plan — and they don't even get the chance to try it, as their being caught by JP amidst the defusal attempt compels him to check the belt and find the bomb off-screen. JP being JP, he knowingly activates the bomb in Yua's hands before the Avatar or Bosch can approach it safely, forcing the latter to perform a Heroic Sacrifice with the Avatar all but useless in preventing any of it.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Generally the Avatar tries to follow Bosch's trail to help him with whatever he's gotten himself into, and seems dead set on making sure he can be rescued from his Psycho Power situation. Then they find out from the Nayshall Resistance that he's been embroiled this entire time in a plan to suicide bomb JP to save their nation. The Avatar's first response is to be visibly enraged, before wordlessly raising their fists and beating the everliving hell out of Rewancha to "voice" their displeasure.
  • Friendly Rival: With Bosch, returning the latter's respect over their growth as a fighter with equal measure.
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation: They can learn every fighting style used by the base roster of 6, including fighting styles that use mystical means or, in Dhalsim's case, freakishly outlandish. While the PC gains a portion of the Psycho Power from JP and earns the favor of the spirits with Lily's help, explaining how they can imitate their respective fighting styles, it's not explained how the PC can elongate their limbs or how they can use Blanka's Shock and Awe abilities.
  • Multiple-Choice Past: They don't hail from a singular country like most fighters and can potentially come from anywhere in the world.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Their involvement in the plot unintentionally complicates several matters for the Nayshall Resistance's plans to try to assassinate JP, forcing extreme measures to be taken. And their getting caught inside the Championship Belt room by JP while trying to disarm the bomb within the belt causes him to check it afterwards, discover the bomb, and keep it active intentionally so that he can specifically draw out Bosch to his death by Heroic Sacrifice after putting the activated bomb in Yua's hands.
  • Odd Friendship: They gradually earn mutual trust with some of their more, er, troublesome mentors, such as Juri. It says a lot when she feels comfortable enough around them to tell them a bit of her past, whereas anyone else who would've asked her about it would've gotten the shit kicked out of them or worse.
  • One-Man Army: Though they have a few team-ups in major fights, generally the Avatar tears through the Mad Gear Gang, the Crows, SiRN security, leagues of random martial artists and criminals and even JP's own security forces singlehandedly. The Conservation of Ninjutsu means the skilled, singular opponents are typically the biggest threats to them, compared to utterly tearing through virtually everyone else.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: The final fight in World Tour sees an enraged PC fighting JP after he confesses to knowing about the bomb in the championship belt, but did nothing about it.
  • Silent Protagonist: They speak in battle, but while out in the open world and in cutscenes, they're silent. This is best showcase in the ending cutscene where they're on the phone with Luke where their lips are moving, but there's no sound.
  • Skilled, but Naive: They begin the game with good practical training, enough to join Luke's security business at all, but the point of World Tour is to continue gaining more experience by meeting various masters and training under them. Often, they're flustered by the cast's exotic powers, or overeager to learn the moves without getting into the right headspace, but they ultimately prove able to meet their standards, and willing to put in the work, which earns them the approval of their masters.
  • Vengeance Feels Empty: They realize this after they pound the tar out of JP when he confesses to knowing the championship belt was rigged to explode (and even activated the bomb himself) and indirectly killed Bosch purely out of amusement. When they look at their rival's charred corpse in despair, JP laughs as they now realize how little their victory over him means.
  • Virtual Paper Doll: Every facet of the PC can be customized, from their physical features at the start of the game to their clothes, potentially allowing you to make some really wacky and weird-looking characters.
  • Worthy Opponent: Played with. While most martial artists engage with the PC on friendly terms like Chun-Li and Ryu, others require the PC to prove themselves in a fight. Juri, for example, agrees to tutor the PC because they're good in a fight and mimic her fighting style surprisingly well.
  • Wouldn't Hurt a Child: The Avatar can challenge mostly everyone, but they consistently are unable to challenge any children into a fight.

    Albert Jackson 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screenshot_2023_05_16_at_162106_8.png

Kimberly's uncle and one of Ken's senior advisors at the Masters Foundation. He appears in the Days of the Eclipse prequel comic, and his disappearance is Kimberly's main motivation for participating in the events of the game proper.

  • The Consigliere: He acts as Ken's chief advisor, and is a cool, calming presence.
  • Searching for the Lost Relative: Albert is seemingly killed when the car he and Ken are travelling in whilst in Nayshall is attacked by terrorists and explodes. Kimberly, his niece, sets out on a mission to find out what happened to him.
  • Speak Truth To Power: Albert doesn't mince words with Ken, despite him effectively running the Masters Foundation, advising him that his decision to invest in and joint-host a fighting tournament in the emerging nation of Nayshall — at a cost of a cool $350 million — is leaving a bad impression with his board of investors, even noting that it's been perceived as a vanity project to recapture Ken's glory days.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: He exists for one chapter of the prequel comic, and is established as someone who works with Ken in his financial advisories — only to subsequently be blown up in a False Flag Operation as part of JP's machinations to bleed profits out of the Masters Foundation and the resulting tournament.

    Bosch 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screenshot_2023_04_21_at_113743.png

Origin: Nayshall
Voiced by: Kyouhei Natsume (Japanese), Griffin Puatu (English)

Full name Bosch Waraya. Your rival, introduced in the game's tutorial while you're in Luke's gym.

  • Climax Boss: Is effectively the Final Boss of the game for the player character, with their fight in the finals being the true test of how well they've mastered fighting techniques. Compounding this, the only difference in the subsequent cutscene that plays regardless of winning or losing to Bosch is his and the Avatar's positions on the podium, and Bosch still rushes into his Heroic Sacrifice first before the player character can react to the rigged champion's belt being armed. Even with JP being the True Final Boss, he's a markedly easier challenge to overcome and freely admits he's not the strongest out there and his defeat earns nothing for the Avatar beyond the satisfaction of beating him down momentarily, contrasted against the emotional high-stakes confrontation between them and Bosch just moments before.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: Bosch has nothing all that special going on as far as Street Fighter is concerned, and yet is still consistently on-par with the fighting prodigy that is the Player Character. Then Amnesia shows up and turns him into a Psycho Power fueled Super-Soldier.
  • Establishing Character Moment: While you have Luke amiably giving your avatar the basics of fighting, Bosch appears out of nowhere to surprise attack you, looking to start a fight.
  • Evil Makeover: Later in the story, he is encountered with a very different look and acts a lot more aggressive. The bandages on one arm are extended past his elbow, his bracelets are replaced with heavy metal shackles, he's wearing a purple-splotched Mad Gear box mask, and he is topless aside from a single shoulder pad, exposing a variety of nasty purple scars as a result of Amnesia's Psycho Power experiments.
  • Friendly Rival: For all of his brashness and negative first impression, he does still show a lot of respect to the player and an appreciation for their mutual growth as fighters.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Saves the player character and Yua by grabbing the sabotaged champion's belt and attempting to throw it to a safe distance, only for the bomb within to go off as soon as he does, killing him in the blast.
  • Killed Off for Real: Once the bomb goes off as soon as it leaves Bosch’s hands, the story goes out of its way to repeatedly show his charred corpse on the ground as the only dead body in the entirety of the game, just to emphasize how meaningless and violent his demise was.
  • The Rival: He serves as the gateway challenge to your avatar in World Tour as you've wrapped up training with Luke.
  • Shout-Out: He shares a name with Johnny Yong Bosch, an actor that's worked on many Capcom titles like Mega Man, Devil May Cry, and of course Street Fighter. Given that there are also several NPCs in World Tour that share their names with various Breath of Fire Characters, his name may refer to the characters of the same name from II (known in English as "Bow") and Dragon Quarter.
  • SNK Boss: As the Psycho Power-infused Cardboard Combatant, Bosch is a Lightning Bruiser with inflated attack power and defense, and stronger versions of Luke's special moves that require no Drive Gage to use, including a projectile that cancels any of your own projectiles. His sole Super Art, which only needs one bar worth of Super, is also much more powerful than even the main cast's Level 3 Super Arts: an unblockable sequence of multiple hard-hitting Psycho-powered strikes that can knock large chunks out of the player's health bar and ends in a free Drive Impact, draining at least two full bars of the player's Drive Gage ontop of all the damage. The attack can be dodged or hit out of, but mandates either perfect reflexes or timing to avoid or cancel the Super Art.

    Carlos Miyamoto

Origin: Brazil

One of the main heroes of Final Fight 2. He can be challenged to a battle in Metro City.

  • Badass in a Nice Suit: In 6, Carlos swaps his all denim outfit for a blue suit, black dress shirt, red tie and Cool Shades.
  • But Not Too Foreign: He's Japanese-Brazilian, and hails from the latter.
  • Hero of Another Story: He is one of four playable heroes in Final Fight 2, whereas here he's an NPC that you can do a sidequest with in World Tour.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: He has an exclusive attack where he swings his blade around him several times in a row. You cannot armor break, Drive Impact, or even attempt to projectile it without getting drawn in if it tags your hitbox. If it hits you in full, that's upwards to a third of a health bar gone, and getting suckered into the final hit is by itself almost a fourth.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: He shows up in the optional post-game boss in the Suva'hal Tournament questline, where he insists that he's not Carlos but someone else, all while just wearing a robber mask and still carrying his sword around. He reveals himself if the Avatar beats him regardless, but still initially baffled that the Avatar can see through his disguise (despite it being poorly made).
  • Private Detective: He describes himself as something of a mix between this and a freelance action hero in World Tour Mode: he seeks out people with problems on the streets of Metro City, investigates on their behalf and fights whatever thugs or villains were involved. During the story, you help him out investigating a robbery.

The flamboyant host of the Battle Hub. They appear during the mode's introductory cutscene.

  • Agent Peacock: Eternity is quite the flamboyant fellow, but they're no slouch in a fight themselves.
  • Alternate Company Equivalent: If Kimberly shares some parallels with Isla, then Eternity is Capcom's answer to Clemence Bellamy.
  • Ambiguous Gender: Eternity is presented as a gender-nonconforming character and sports an androgynous look. They are also never referred to with specific pronouns at any point during World Tour or Battle Hub.
  • Game Show Host: They've got the excitable, over-the-top exuberance down pat and act as the host for the Battle Hub network, a virtual arcade for online gaming.
  • Large-Ham Announcer: Their delivery on every line is quite flamboyant, not to mention their flashy and campy attire that drives home their focus on showmanship and presentation.
  • Moveset Clone: Eternity fights using Juri's fighting style.
  • Shout-Out: Comparisons were made to the irrepressible Ruby Rhod as soon as they debuted.

JP's secretary and native to Nayshall. She appears in the game's prequel comic, Days of the Eclipse.

  • Anti-Hero: In World Tour, she wants nothing more than to stop JP, but is willing to stoop to ruthless methods to do so, namely using Bosch as a suicide bomber to try and take out JP in an explosion.
  • The Atoner: She saves Ken from being detained by authorities after finding out what JP's plans for her country are. Unfortunately, she fails to assassinate JP himself and gets stabbed with her own knife, with JP standing over her dying body to gloat about how he's going to bleed her country dry until it's outlived its use to him.
  • Didn't Think This Through: The plan involving using the young, inexperienced Bosch as a suicide bomber against JP has so many holes that it shows how desperate she and the Resistance are. It's only thanks to him bungling up in his haste and being kidnapped by Amnesia to be imbued with Psycho Power that he even manages to become strong enough for such a role — and then the plan completely fails because JP knows ahead of time about the bomb hidden in the champion’s belt, forcing Bosch to make his Heroic Sacrifice to save his sister Yua when the bomb is activated, which ultimately ends up looking like a failed terrorist attack against a good-standing CEO.
  • Early Installment Character-Design Difference In the prequel comic, her hair is entirely dark. Her depiction in Ken's story and World Tour shows her as having a dual-toned hairstyle of white and black.
  • He Knows Too Much: After she finds out about JP's true goals for Nayshall and attempts to assassinate him, JP casually turns her own knife on her, leaving her for dead, though she survives to show up in Metro City during World Tour Mode.
  • La Résistance: By the events of World Tour, she's the leader of the resistance group in Nayshall.
  • Meaningful Name: Kalima is a Hindi-originated name meaning 'Speaker' or 'Mouthpiece', which is appropriate given her role as JP's secretary and public liaison in Nayshall.
  • Not Quite Dead: She is described as "missing" in Ken's story despite having been stabbed seemingly fatally by JP. Sure enough, she's alive and well by the time of World Tour.
  • Unwitting Pawn: She was the one responsible for coordinating JP's operations, not knowing that he was plotting to stage a terrorist attack on her country to profit off of the chaos.

    Rudra

Origin: Nayshall
Voiced by: Shinya Takahashi (Japanese), Bill Butts (English)

The leader of The Crows, a new Metro City-based gang that rivals Mad Gear.

  • Don't Call Me "Sir": He hates being called "Boss" by his underlings, preferring "Mister Rudra".
  • Friend to All Children: He started training under Dhalsim in order to protect homeless youths who couldn't protect themselves, many of whom would continue to follow Rudra as members of The Crows.
  • Justified Criminal: He and the other Crows commit crimes like theft that are needed for survival due to their poverty.
  • Lean and Mean: He's very gaunt and rangy in build, with sunken cheekbones and a snarling, unkind look. However, while he is the leader of street gang, he ultimately turns out to be not such a mean guy after all.
  • Moveset Clone: He's a disciple of Dhalsim, although Rudra puts more stock in the fire-breathing aspect of Dhalsim's style.
  • Necessarily Evil: Rudra views himself and The Crows this way. He and his crew are essentially homeless who are just stealing and using violence to survive on the streets, but when they were labeled as a gang alongside Mad Gear, they ran with the label.
  • Playful Cat Smile: The sides of his mouth are pursed in such a way that it resembles a cat smile.
  • Playing with Fire: He uses Dhalsim's fire-breathing techniques, but also has a couple of unique fire attacks that Dhalsim doesn't have. The first is a wall of flame that acts as a ground-based projectile, and the other can be described as an anti-air version of Yoga Flame that reaches full screen.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: "Rudra" is an ancient Hindi name associated with the god Shiva, the principle deity in Hinduism.
  • Rubber Man: He uses Dhalsim's normals.
  • The Rival: He acts as one to Damnd, with the two of them being leaders of rival gangs vying for a shot at representing Metro City in a tournament being held in Nayshall.
  • Shadow Archetype: He's one to his old master, Dhalsim. While Rudra's still very much a decent guy deep down who just wants to look out for the downtrodden, he's also a brash and cocky gang leader who's not above stealing and using violence to get by. If not for Rudra using his trademark techniques, it'd be surprising to find out that the peaceful, pacifistic Dhalsim was this guy's master.

    King Shari of Nayshall 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screenshot_2023_05_05_at_143409.png

Origin: Nayshall

The boy-king of the fledgling nation of Nayshall, one the game's major locations. He first appears in the game's prequel comic, Days of the Eclipse.

  • A Child Shall Lead Them: He rules the mountainous emerging nation of Nayshall, and yet is ostensibly a young teenager.
  • Micro Monarchy: The Kingdom of Nayshall is a thinly-veiled analogue of the real-world Kingdom of Bhutan, a tiny, landlocked nation secluded in the Himalayas. The name 'Nayshall' also sounds very much like Nepal, a neighbouring Himalayan nation that was also a monarchy up until 2008.
  • Requisite Royal Regalia: He's decked out in voluminous robes and a huge headdress, befitting his status as king.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: He effectively enables JP's manipulations, alongside Ken, as the royal seal of approval in Nayshall matters causes the prequel comic and 6's story to unfold with all the hell that entails, and he's completely oblivious to the root cause. He only appears for part of a chapter in the comic itself, and has no greater role past the plot point described.
  • Unwitting Pawn: King Shari is a sweet young man, and is entirely taken in by the seemingly benevolent JP and his grand plans for Nayshall, including the reopening of an ancient fighting arena which, with Shari's blessing, JP uses as a platform to promote his fighting tournament betting app, through which he plans to launder money and suck Nayshall dry.

    Thrasher Damnd 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screenshot_2023_04_21_at_113805.png

Voiced by: note 

A Dominican Republic born bruiser, Damnd was the lowest ranking of Mad Gear's leaders during the gang's days working for Belger. He makes his return to the Street Fighter / Final Fight universe in World Tour mode, which shows that in the years since Belger's death he has become the de facto leader of the gang, being the only one of its prominent and powerful members to keep it up and running, though they now operate on a much smaller scale.

  • Affably Evil: He's an incorrigible crime lord who causes the heroes a great deal of trouble in the first half of the game, but darn if he's not also cheerful, friendly, and easy to get along with. Damnd respects strength, and as long as you've got it you're all right in his book, even if you're his enemy. He's not particularly volatile and holds no grudges for anything - it's noted that even had he caught Bosch after the latter stole from him, the worst he would've done was offer Bosch a job with no strings attached. When the player later beats down his entire gang and refuses the same offer, he lets him go with a cheery offer to team up in the future. Even when he kidnaps Li-Fen, the player finds her entirely unharmed and unconcerned, and the whole thing turns out to be a job offer.
  • All Bikers are Hells Angels: In World Tour mode, set prominently in Metro City, he wears a motorcycle jacket that has "Mad Gear M C" (M C often stands for "Motorcycle Club"), "Mad Gear Gang", and "Metro City" emblazoned across it.
  • Clean Dub Name: He is called 'Thrasher' for the SNES and Sega CD ports of Final Fight, which is reintroduced here as part of his full in-game name. Eventually, both of his names were consolidated into one, his full name becoming "Thrasher Damnd".
  • Cool Shades: Wears a classic pair for most of his appearances, including World Tour, where he sports blue-rimmed wayfarers.
  • Dragon Ascendant: He has ascended to become the Mad Gear Gang's new leader after other gang leaders like Belger and Retu have been killed.
  • Dynamic Entry: He first appears in a teaser trailer for World Tour mode, dropping into view dramatically.
  • Scary Black Man: A massive wall of muscle who is taller and larger than Haggar, with a demented cackle to match his Cheshire Cat Grin.
  • Shout-Out Theme Naming: He is named after the band The Damned.
  • We Can Rule Together: Talking with his minions reveals that Damnd is obsessed with recruiting strong and capable new members for Mad Gear, so that they can one day rule the city again. Every action he takes in the story mode is in pursuit of this: he pursues Bosch to try and offer him a position, he kidnaps Li-Fen to try and convince her to be a hacker for Mad Gear, and he tries to convince the Avatar to help him revive Mad Gear practically every time they meet.
