Introduced in Street Fighter II

    Arroyo Hawk

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.
  • Does Not Like Shoes
  • Large and in Charge: He was the chief of the Thunderfoot tribe, and was 6' 11" (212 cm), almost as tall as his son.
  • Posthumous Character: M. Bison killed Arroyo many years before the start of the series.


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 

Origin: Japan

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

    Eliza Masters
"No matter how old you two get, it never ends."

Origin: USA
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...?"
  • Armor-Piercing Slap: In the UDON comics, Eliza gives one to Vega when he attempts to sexually assault her in a hotel room, smacking him in the face. Unfortunately, this sends Vega absolutely ballistic and puts him straight into Kill Mode when he was previously coldly smug; and being a non-fighter, she likely would have been carved to pieces had Ken not intervened just in time.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Wet Blanket Wife: Mostly averted, though she did play it straight for a while in the UDON comic.
  • Women Are Wiser: Specially in IV, where she's a lot calmer than her husband.


    George Ginzu

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

"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 this time it's unambiguously in the shape of the hammer and sickle.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: He's former Russian leader Mikhail Gorbachev, though with a few differences, due to references to the Soviet Union being removed from later versions of Street Fighter II. Also, he's only called "Great Leader" in-game (in Japanese, Erai Hito, lit. "Great Person").
  • Retired Badass: He apparently used to be an undefeated wrestler in his youth, but went into politics after graduating.
  • That Russian Squat Dance: Celebrates with Zangief this way.

    Julia & Amy
Amy (left) and Julia (right)
"If you're ready to come back to us, we're ready to forgive you."

Origin: USA

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: Amy is known as Chris in Japan. Julia was originally known as Jane in the English version of II
  • Girls Love Stuffed Animals: Amy is presumably a teenager by the time of V, but she still loves stuffed animals, and is depicted holding a teddy bear.
  • If You Kill Him, You Will Be Just Like Him!: They pull this on Guile, urging him not to kill M. Bison. It's only in the Turbo HD Remix ending that Guile realizes this by himself.
  • One-Steve Limit: Averted. Julia does have the same as the real name of Juli and a few minor characters.
  • Pen Pals: Amy is actually good friends with Dhatta, Dhalsim's son. It's a plot point, since Dhatta comments on some things that Amy has told him about her dad's work and Dhalsim realizes something wrong is about to happen.
  • 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

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.

    Lita Luwanda

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 like a younger sister.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Lita's combat uniform. It's similar to Cammy's, but hers has a single pant leg, while Cammy's has none.
  • The Lad-ette: Lita is apparently foul-mouthed and dislikes formalities.


    Matthew McCoy

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
  • Cyborg: The right side of his head is mechanical, and he also has a cybernetic right arm.
  • Race Lift: The Street Fighter V Character Reference depicts him as black, when he was originally white in Street Fighter II and the UDON comics.
  • Stout Strength: McCoy is a bit chunky, but it's balanced out by his sheer height and muscle power.
  • Supreme Chef: McCoy is a master chef.

    Sally & Dhatta

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.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Dhatta is generally shown to go barefoot, while Sally wears sandals.
  • Multi-Ethnic Name: Sally isn't exactly a name you'd hear a lot in India.
    • Her name is supposed to be Sari, which is basically the Indian version of "Sally", but this got Lost in Translation somehow.
  • May–December Romance: Sally is about 16 years old in Alpha 2, and Dhalsim is middle-aged for most of the series, and is growing a long grey beard in V.
  • Pen Pals: Dhatta is pen pals with Guile's daughter, Amy.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: Dhalsim is a very wise Nice Guy, Sally surely knows that better than anyone save for Dhatta.
  • Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome: Dhatta ages rather quickly from game to game. He's a baby in Alpha 2, then a young boy in II, but then he suddenly looks about 10 in IV.
  • Supreme Chef: Sally is known for her amazing cooking, especially her curry.
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: Sometimes, due to their age difference and Dhalsim's less than handsome features. It really depends on who's the artist in charge, however. The Street Fighter World Warrior Encyclopedia even states "some would say Sally is out of Dhalsim's league."

"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.

  • Depending on the Artist: Her appearance varies in each game. In the original Street Fighter II, she was a relatively short old lady. In the HD Remix, she looked younger, but much more portly. IV made her old again, but made her a bit taller, with much longer hair. The UDON comics also waffled with her appearance, sometimes making her look like her IV appearance, and sometimes making her look very old, gray hair and all.
  • Good Parents: She's a really sweet lady and she adores her son no matter what.
  • Freakiness Shame: Averted. She feels no shame that her son is a green beast man, and she tries to get him to go out and make friends.
  • Missing Mom: She was one to Blanka for a long time, until she saw him competing in the tournament, and recognized the anklet she gave him when he was a baby.

    Scott & Max

Origin: USA

Those two guys you see fighting in the intro to Street Fighter II.

  • All There in the Manual: They've never made an appearance outside the Street Fighter II intro, until Capcom wrote up bios about them.
  • The Cameo: Max makes an appearance in Street Fighter V, where he is shown losing a match against Alex. He also appears in the background of Balrog's Casino stage.
  • Identical Stranger: Scott looks exactly like Cody before he went to prison.
  • Mythology Gag: Max's story mode contribution is getting knocked out by Alex. The only other thing Max is known for in the series is getting knocked out by Scott in the intro to Street Fighter II.
  • No Name Given: Not until the release of the Street Fighter V Character Reference, which made lots of players think they were Joe and Mike.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Max's backstory is very similar to Balrog's and Mike's, all of them being African-American boxers with troubled pasts. Scott is also visually identical to Cody, and also has a nearly identical backstory, to the point where his bio ends with the statement "He is not Cody."
  • Tattooed Crook: Max, in his Street Fighter V redesign.

Introduced in Street Fighter Alpha


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 and overjoyed Dee Jay found out that he was to have his music produced by JMP.
  • Cool Shades: Wears red-rimmed sunglasses with pointed edges.
  • Token White: Implied to be Jamaican, a country that’s primarily populated with black people.

    The Dolls
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
  • Bare Your Midriff: As of Street Fighter V, the Dolls now have slight variations on their uniforms. This is how Enero differentiates herself from the rest, plus a plaited skirt and tights.
  • Berserk Button: Satsuki gets incredibly upset when her sword is broken. The Dolls also have a literal berserk button, in the form of a skull-shaped device in F.A.N.G's possession.
  • Blade on a Stick: Santamu's weapon.
  • Bodyguard Babes: Most notably, Juli and Juni, who fight the player in Bison's stead in Alpha 3.
  • Braids of Action: Several of the Dolls sport this hairstyle, like Jianyu, Decapre and Noembelu.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: All of them were kidnapped, brainwashed, and trained to kill. Only one of the Dolls' past identities is made clear, though. In T.Hawk's story in Alpha 3, Juli is revealed to be T. Hawk's missing friend Julia, who is apparently a member of his tribe as well.
    • The girl T. Hawk is searching for was originally meant to be Noembelu, a Native American member of the Dolls whose name comes from November (v being pronounced as a w). When they added T. Hawk to the console ports, instead of making Noembelu into a playable character as well, they simply shoehorned Juli into his in-game story. Noembelu is the one with the tomahawk in this artwork.
    • In UDON's Street Fighter Comic-Book Adaptation, T. Hawk actually searches for both, Noembelu and Julia, with Julia being the missing daughter of a German doctor who once lived with the Thunderfoot tribe and was murdered some time ago, probably by Shadaloo when they came to abduct Juli.
    • In Street Fighter V, all of them are freed of their brainwashing after the device controlling them is destroyed.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Jianyu is stated to be an amazing fighter, but also lazy and rather disobedient.
  • Carry a Big Stick: Jianyu uses a quarter-staff as her weapon.
  • Cool Big Sis: Aprile, the oldest of the dolls, acts as one towards the others.
  • Cool Shades: Février sports a pair of light blue safety glasses in V.
  • Cleavage Window: Aprile's outfit has one.
  • Cloning Blues: With the exception of Decapre, averted. Unlike Cammy, they're not clones. They've just been kidnapped all over the world.
  • 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.
  • I Call It "Vera": Satsuki calls her katana "Murasame".
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Satsuki's weapon of choice.
  • Kill the Cutie: März, the shyest of the dolls, is the only one to die after their brainwashing is erased, in a Heroic Sacrifice to save Rashid.
  • Malevolent Masked Woman: Decapre and, as of V, Xiayu and Satsuki.
  • More Dakka: Février makes full use of submachine guns, shotguns and grenades.
  • Moveset Clone: Most of the dolls are fought during the cinematic story in Street Fighter V, and their movesets are identical to Cammy's, but with additional special moves unique to each of them.
    • Enero can use her megaphone to let out a sound-based projectile.
    • Février uses her guns in battle.
    • März whacks the opponent over the head with a laptop.
    • Aprile squirts poison out of a syringe, with the same effect as F.A.N.G's poison.
    • Satsuki has sword-based moves.
    • Santamu can throw spears, as well as spin one over hear head as an anti-air attack.
  • Multi-Ethnic Name: Santamu's name is the Japanese phonetic spelling for the Vietnamese word for August, "Tháng Tám", though she's apparently from Ethiopia.
  • 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.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: März is never shown or mentioned again after her Heroic Sacrifice to both save Rashid and kill F.A.N.G, who survives long enough to see Bison's death, leaving no definitive answer as to whether the fall killed her, F.A.N.G killed her, or if she survived. Cammy's ending in the Arcade edition shows her alongside the rest of the Dolls being rescued by Cammy, however it is unknown if this is canon.
  • Youthful Freckles: Enero has them.

    Edi. E
Origin: USA
Voiced by: note 

Edi. E is an officer for the Metro City PD who was on Mad Gear's payroll. After he was defeated by Cody, Edi. E was one of the lucky few to escape prosecution and retaining his job. Edi. E grew to hate Cody and when he broke out of jail in Street Fighter Alpha 3, Edi. E is seen trying to apprehend him and send him back to jail.

  • Acrofatic: Pretty fast for a guy his size, he can almost catch Cody...almost.
  • Anti-Villain: As a police officer, he's doing his job and trying to capture an escaped convict. However, he's not doing it because of the law, but because he hates Cody.
  • The Cameo: Chases Cody in Street Fighter Alpha 3 in one of his win poses after his escape from prison. Even earlier still he's in the background of Guy's stage in Alpha 2.
  • Carpet of Virility: As of his Street Fighter V concept art, though he's always been hairy in Final Fight.
  • Dirty Cop: One of the bosses of the first Final Fight games as a member of Mad Gear.
  • Firing in the Air a Lot: While in pursuit of Cody, he fires off a round of ammo in the air. It doesn't get Cody to stop and he's not shooting at Cody, so he's pretty much wasting bullets.
  • Race Lift: Capcom can't seem to decide on what his skin color is. In the original Final Fight, he's Ambiguously Brown. Then in Alpha 3, he was white. Then in Final Fight Revenge, he's black. As of Street Fighter V, he's white again.
  • 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
"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.

  • Action Dad: Unlike his son Dan, Gou was quite the fighter. Again, Sagat wouldn't need an eyepatch if it weren't for him.
  • Ascended Extra: He becomes one in the UDON comics, where his battle against Sagat is actually shown. He also appears in Super Gem Fighter in several of Dan's moves, where he's been given a long nose and red skin a la Mr. Karate.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows
  • Family-Unfriendly Death: Up till UDON's Legends series, Gou Hibiki's death was more or less Played for Laughs, via Dan's over-the-top dramatic reactions. Then they show the whole, brutal scenario in full. It doesn't help that the company keeps treating Dan like dirt in their following stories.
  • Posthumous Character: Sagat had an eyepatch in Street Fighter I, so Gou's been dead for quite some time.
  • What Could Have Been: Gou is shown as having been a very strong fighter in his own right, along with having been very stoic and brave personality and would never let injustice occur around his presence. He is everything Dan should and could have been.


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.


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.
    • This trend continues in V, where he appears in the background of the Kanzuki Estate stage. He'll excitedly watch the fight from the sidelines, but the more excited he gets, the more annoyed the maid next to him becomes. Eventually she'll become so annoyed that she'll knock him upside the head with a dinner tray.
  • Foil: To Shibasaki. Ishizaki's Butt-Monkey status and Bumbling Sidekick ways serve to highlight just how much of a Hyper-Competent Sidekick Shibasaki is.
  • I Just Want to Be Badass: He sometimes wants in on the action, only for Karin to shoot him down and get him back to work.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: In the UDON comics, Karin uses him to cheat at a hot dog eating contest against Sakura, hiding him under the table and forcing him to eat the hot dogs. However, E. Honda, the judge of the contest, declares Ishizaki the winner, much to Karin and Sakura's surprise. After Ishizaki tries to give the trophy to Karin, she lets him keep it, stating that he's the one who earned it.

    Kei Chitose

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.
  • 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.


Origin: Italy

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

  • 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

Origin: USA
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.

"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.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit
  • Battle Butler: Karin's story mode in Street Fighter V shows that he is himself a capable fighter. When a low-ranking Shadaloo soldier is sent careening towards Karin by Zangief, he darts in front of her like a bullet, and stops him with a single hand.
  • Foil: To Ishizaki. While Ishizaki is somewhat bumbling, goofy and gets no respect, Shibasaki is extremely competent and straight-laced.
  • Hyper-Competent Sidekick: Downplayed, since Karin herself is smart and a powerful fighter, but Shibasaki does his job extremely well and has Karin's respect, unlike Ishizaki.
  • The Jeeves: He isn't British, but he is a butler that performs his job flawlessly. Birdie even calls him "Jeeves" during Karin's story mode.
  • Spell My Name with an S: His name was spelled as "Shibazaki" in Alpha 3, but it's spelled "Shibasaki" in V. The kanji used is still the same, though.
  • The Stoic: He is extremely unemotional and strictly professional, able to maintain his composure even under stressful circumstances, such as when Zangief sent a Shadaloo grunt flying towards Karin, and he was able to block it without so much as a thought. The only time he's ever been surprised is when Karin began using "The Ruler's Staying Hand", a technique in the Kanzuki family that apparently uses pure muscle power to overwhelm opponents thousands of miles away, and then watched Zangief effortlessly replicate it.

    Tsukushi Kasugano

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.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: He rarely goes outside for anything except school, anyway.
  • Otaku: He's always seen playing video games, and he's also a fan of plastic models.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: He's in the background of Sakura's Alpha 2 and V stage playing video games. Despite the fact that there's two people fighting just outside his house, he is never distracted from his game.

    Yamato Nadeshiko

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.

    Yoko Harumage

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
"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.


Origin: Japan

Ibuki's pet tanuki, who's been with her since she was a child.

"Ohh, poor Illya! I'll help you out!"

Origin: Unknown
Voiced by: note 

Necro's girlfriend, and the one who saved him from being destroyed by the Illuminati. She's also apparently an Illuminati experiment herself, though her exact purpose and function remain unknown.

  • Adaptational Badass / Ascended Extra: In the SFIII games she was simply Necro's companion who mimicked his moves, even in defeat, as well as one of the random Judgement Girls. In the UDON Street Fighter Unlimited series, she's a Made of Iron Little Miss Badass who tag teams with him in several fights.
  • 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 / Made of Iron: There's a reason Urien trusted her to retrieve Necro in Street Fighter Unlimited; Not only does she single-handedly take out two of the Delta team members transporting him, she also takes out their truck by letting it crash into her. And gets not so much as a scratch from it, either.
    • She later tag teams with Necro to fight Alex and in the Final Battle, she's among the fighters going toe to toe with Gill.
  • Older Than She Looks: She's in her early twenties, although she looks no older than sixteen.
  • Perky Goth: She sports a cyber-goth look, and has a sweet, peppy personality.
  • 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
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.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: They're a tribal people, after all. Amina apparently doesn't even like walking on paved roads.
  • Earthy Barefoot Character: All of them live off the land in the African savanna by choice, although they visit the city on weekends.
  • Extremity Extremist: They're all Capoeira practitioners.
  • Fan Boy: Marcus is a huge fan of Dee Jay's music, but he keeps it a secret.
  • Good Parents: Jafari is strong and wise, and Amina is very loving 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.
  • Multi-Ethnic Name: Curiously, Jafari and Amina have Swahili names, but their children, Elena and Marcus, have more English-sounding names.
  • 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

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.
  • 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 second African character, after Elena (who hails from Kenya).

    Juliana Leigh, David Spender & Wayne Nakamura
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

Origin: USA

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.
  • Multi-Ethnic Name: Wayne Nakamura.
  • No Name Given: Wayne Nakamura had no name in Street Fighter III, and he was given the name Richard Burgman in the comics. With his SFV profile, Capcom offically named him Wayne Nakamura.
  • Otaku: Juliana is apparently an anime fan.
  • Weight Woe: Juliana's weight is listed as being a secret.

     Houmei & Shaomei

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.
  • 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 is certainly appropriate.
    • Geisha (Japan) — she only ever appeared in concept sketches, but the Japanese judgement 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.
  • One-Steve Limit: Averted with Julia, who is one of two Julia's in the series. There's also Shadaloo doll Juli, whose real name is Julia.
  • 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 judgement, 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 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.

    Kenichi Kakutani

Origin: Japan

A karate master who lost to Makoto in her 3rd Strike ending. He was a friend of Makoto's father.

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

Origin: China
Voiced by: note 

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

  • Anime Chinese Girl: She is dressed in a qipao, and Chun-Li shows her how to tie her hair into odango and offers to teach her kung-fu.
  • Child Prodigy: She's a master hacker.
  • The Cutie: She is freaking adorable.
  • Framing Device: Chun-Li telling her a past story is the Framing Device for Chun-Li's Character Story in Street Fighter V.
  • Happily Adopted: Eventually becomes a happy and outgoing kid as Chun-Li's daughter, by end of Street Fighter III she is the most promising of all the children Chun-Li took in as her kids and disciples.
  • Shrinking Violet: She's very soft-spoken and shy, but wants to be strong like Chun-Li.
  • 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.


Origin: Japan

  • Curb-Stomp Battle: He suffered from one shortly before his untimely death, against a strong opponent in South America, presumably Oro.

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

    Pulk Hogen

Origin: USA

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 

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

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 an at-the-time current (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 ultimatly 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 "Lynn 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.
  • Youthful Freckles

    Tom & Patricia

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

    Yuta Homura

Origin: Japan

One of Ibuki's ninja friends. He's the ninja that Ibuki spars with in one of her intro animations in Street Fighter III.
