Introduced in Street Fighter IV
"Well, my Rufus ain't no ordinary man, he's the best fighter in America, y'know, and he's a gentleman!"
Voiced by: note
Rufus' girlfriend, who dresses like a stereotypical cowgirl. The two apparently met during a dine-and-dash.
- Absolute Cleavage: Deep enough to get lost in. Just look at the screencap of her.
- Bare Your Midriff: She wears a short pink top.
- Because Destiny Says So: According to Rose's win quote to Rufus:"You are destined to be with Candy. Treat her well."
- Horrible Judge of Character: She's convinced that Rufus is a genius and a gentleman. Yes, the guy who runs around beating up everyone, regardless of age, ethnicity or gender, because he thinks they're Ken Masters. Then again, this might be relative, as Rufus is kind enough to her, and she doesn't exactly seem to be very smart herself.
- Ugly Guy Hot Girlfriend: Rufus is a fat, ugly, loudmouthed man who has somehow managed to attract a hot cowgirl.
- Unexplained Accent: You'd think that with her stereotypical cowgirl outfit and appearing to live in the American South that she would have a Southern accent, but her voice makes her sound like she's from Brooklyn.
- Who Wears Short Shorts?: She does.
- Youthful Freckles: They're faint, but she does have three freckles on each cheek.
- Zettai Ryouiki: She wears a pair of pink stockings.
El Fuertes co-worker at the Restaurante who is stunned how bad El Fuerte is at making food.
"I love my daughters, they are so pretty!" -Hakan
Hakan's wife Melike, and their seven daughters, Abla, Susam, Hurmas, Tereyağı, Kanola, Zeytin and Ayçiçeği.
- Absolute Cleavage: Melike lets it all hang out.
- Always Identical Twins: Well, almost. Each of Hakan's seven daughters has a different hairdo pattern. Otherwise, they look exactly the same aside from age.
- Beauty Contest: Melike is apparently a former Miss Turkey.
- Dark-Skinned Blonde: Melike.
- Does Not Like Shoes: Hakan's daughters all run around barefoot.
- Good Parents: They're both loving parents, but Hakan tends to spoil his daughters, while Melike is more strict.
- Meaningful Name: The name "Melike" (pronounced 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"
- Non-Standard Character Design: Hakan's daughters, with their Kewpie-doll proportions and pie-eyes, evoke a simpler, more cartoonish artistic style — certainly when compared to any other periphery characters in the series listed here.
- Numerological Motif: Having inherited their father's bizarre hairstyle, Hakan's daughters heads are also numbered. They all have a different number of head...barnacles...in their hair, presumably showing their order of birth, the oldest having only one and the youngest having seven.
- She's Got Legs: Melike does.
- Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: Not only does Hakan look really weird, but his wife has managed to keep her looks after having a kid, then twins, then triplets, then yet another daughter.
- The Voiceless: Not one of them utters a word during Hakan's arcade mode ending.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: The children have inherited their dad's blue hair.
Maya (Crimson Viper)'s daughter.
- Cheerful Child: She's a very happy girl who loves her mother very much, and is completely unaware of her mom's real job as a CIA agent.
- Disappeared Dad: Who her father is has never been brought up.
- Morality Pet: While C. Viper is by no means a villain, she does antagonize a lot of people during IV due to her undercover operation. Lauren serves to show that she's not a bad person behind the Hidden Heart of Gold-hiding facade.
A robotic version of Zangief created by Shadaloo.
- Canon Immigrant: Originally appeared in Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter as an alternative version of Zangief, with his Banishing Flat move being replaced with Vodka Fire. Afterwards, he appeared as a transformation move for Zangief in Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes and Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes, an alternate costume in Super Street Fighter IV and Street Fighter V, and made a cameo on the Cosmic Elevator stage in Street Fighter X Tekken, which was later ported over to Ultra Street Fighter IV.
- Implacable Man: His body is coated with ceramic titanium designed to repel any attack.
- Mirror Match: His purpose is to Out-Zangief the Zangief.
- Playing with Fire: He can breath fire by setting alight the vodka fueling him.
- Robot Me: He's a robot version of Zangief.
- Vodka Drunkenski: Being a robot version of a Russian wrestler, he literally runs on vodka.
One of Crimson Viper's fellow CIA operatives, who was killed by Shadaloo shortly before the events of IV.
- All There in the Manual: He's never mentioned within the game itself. He's only ever made an appearance in supplementary material.
- Animal Motif: The raven. Similarly to Crimson Viper, whose hair resembles a viper, his hair resembles a raven.
- Cool Shades
- Color Motif: Much like fellow CIA operatives Crimson Viper and Jade Goat, Smalt Raven's codename is a color followed by an animal, with smalt being a specific shade of blue.
- 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
"If it is a silly thing young master wishes to do, then I will follow his wishes."
Origin: The Middle East
Voiced by: note
Rashid's butler. He is a friend of Zangief and Shibasaki, Karin's butler. He is traveling the world along with his young master in order to find Rashid's friend, a Shadaloo scientist who they have lost contact with.
- Ace Pilot: He's the one flying the plane in Rashid's stage, Skies of Honor. He's apparently able to fly the plane well enough that two people can fight atop the wings without falling off.
- Badass Arm-Fold: His default pose. He even tends to run around and jump while still keeping his arms folded.
- Badass Beard: He's got a big bushy white beard, much like Gouken's.
- Battle Butler: We never get to see him fight with anyone, though he's presumably a capable fighter himself. He's a big guy, he's friends with Zangief, and he intimidates Birdie after Rashid's battle with him.
- Bodyguarding a Badass: He's meant to be Rashid's bodyguard in addition to his butler, despite Rashid being a fighter as well, who does a lot more fighting than Azam.
- Catchphrase: "Master." It's the only thing he ever says during the story mode. He'll say it whenever Rashid is sad, acting silly, or in danger.
- Does Not Like Shoes
- Genie in a Bottle: Whilst his master pretty much averts "Arabian Nights" Days (except for his super art), Azam's design and outfit unmistakably evokes a classic Arabian genie.
- Oh, Crap!: How Rashid and him reacts to Helen revealing to Charlie Nash that he is already dead due to the fact his body is physically dead and it won't last long.
- The Quiet One: He generally only speaks when he and Rashid are alone together. He speaks plenty in Rashid's character story, but when the general story came out, he was reduced to just reacting to Rashid's antics by saying "Master".
- Rapunzel Hair: He has a long, flowing mohawk style haircut.
- Remember the New Guy?: Well known among fighting circuits and stewards seeking a role model, respected in both worlds; Azam seems to be very well acquaint with Zangief as well, with the two remnicing even their masters were buddies in the past and now they have followed their steps. This well respected guy was never mentioned or hinted before Street Fighter V.
- Servile Snarker: Expect him to comment by saying "Master..." and shaking his head whenever Rashid's acting silly.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: A heavily muscled man from the Middle East who is pals with Zangief, has a Badass Mustache and acts as a bodyguard/servant to another character? Sounds a lot like Darun Mister.
- Walking Shirtless Scene: Much like Birdie, he only wears a vest.
"Heh. You always show up with such perfect timing. It's almost scary."
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.
- Badass Mustache
- Bald, Black Leader Guy
- Early-Bird Cameo: He plays a role in the Cinematic Story Mode, but prior to that mode's June 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.
David Crislip & Joe
Voiced by: note
Information Analysts that work for the United States Air Force under Gen. Taylor.
- Charlie Brown Baldness: David looks like he went with the Tyson Kidd◊ method of haircuts.
- Good Parent: One of Davids favorite things are his two daughters who he loves very much.
- Mr. Exposition: Both act as this involving some of Shadaloos activities.
- Name's the Same: No, no, no, Joe isnt that Joe, David doesnt work for the CIA and neither of them have any connection to the Skull Cross Gang.
- Those Two Guys: at the desk in the command center in the Air Force base.
"Iiiiincredible! And the winner is, the Russian wrestling dynamo of iron muscle, the Invincible Red Cyclone, Zangief!"
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.
- Cool Shades
- 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.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: See Captain Ersatz above.
- Wearing a Flag on Your Head: He wears an Uncle Sam hat when he's working as a wrestling commentator.
"Eleven's duplication capabilities have been successfully implemented. It is with this ability the strongest warriors could be mass manufactured."
One of the results of the Illuminati's G-Project, and the precursor to Twelve. It is fought by Urien in his story mode, who deems Eleven a failure after he defeats it.
- Ditto Fighter: Much like Twelve, it can transform into other fighters, and fights Urien as a doppelganger of him.
- Plant Person: It was apparently created out of reformed plant matter rather than animal matter.
- The Voiceless: It doesn't speak at all if it isn't transformed into somebody else.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting
- You Are Number Eleven: It's the eleventh result of the G-Project, and it's replaced by Twelve shortly after.
Iwashigahama Japan Women's Pro-Wrestlers
Origin: Japan / Canada
A group of female professional wrestlers headquartered in Japan, but featuring women from around the world. Rainbow Mika and Yamato Nadeshiko are also a part of this group, and Yoko Harumage is the coach. They include Sunrise Nishisenba, Maple Storm note Raika, Fuka, Vivian Nishiki and Pepe Ishiwata.
- Amazonian Beauty: All of them are obviously fit, but Sunrise, Maple Storm and Fuka are downright muscular in comparison to the rest.
- Bandage Babe: Vivian, as a part of her "creepy nurse" gimmick.
- Big Little Sister: Raika is the older sister, but Fuka is significantly beefier than her.
- Captain Geographic: Maple Storm is Canadian, if you couldn't tell by her name and headband.
- Eyepatch of Power: Sunrise has one.
- Facial Markings: Pepe wears facepaint in order to mask her identity.
- The Lad-ette: Sunrise is not only one of the more muscular wrestlers, but her profile also says she's a fan of booze.

- White-Haired Pretty Girl: Fuka.

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

- The Ghost/The Voiceless: Only mentioned once by Viper in M. Bisons prologue story and never seen or heard.
"My purpose...is to become stronger, and to protect our people as you do."
Voiced by: note
An Indian policeman who wishes to study yoga under Dhalsim, in order to better protect people.
- Breath Weapon: He eventually manages to shoot a tiny puff of fire from his mouth, but as he points out, it isn't exactly on par with what Dhalsim can do. Then again, he's still an initiate, so while this is to be expected, it manages to be rather impressive in itself.
- Men Don't Cry: Averted in his case, as he was apparently reduced to tears by a movie called "Ajwain's Tears".
- The Movie Buff: He enjoys going to film festivals in his spare time.
- Police are Useless: Downplayed. He might be a perfectly competent cop, but he's nothing in comparison to Dhalsim or the other fighters. In the cinematic story, when Necalli shows up, it's up to Ryu and Dhalsim to defeat him, while Mahesh gets to cower in fear behind them.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Curry, just like Dhalsim.
Voiced by: note
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.
- Beauty Mark: On the left side of her chin.
- 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
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.
- 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 jiujitsu or capoeira.
- But Not Too Foreign: By virtue of their father's heritage, the Matsuda siblings are Japanese-Brazilian. Averted with their mother's family, the da Silvas, who are seemingly 100% Brazilian.
- Dance Battler: Cousin Enzo and his sister Manuela are capoeiristas.
- Does Not Like Shoes: Kinjiro, Fabio, Enzo and Manuela, being that they're all into Brazilian jiujitsu or capoeira.
- 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.

A young girl who is Sagat's latest apprentice, replacing his former apprentice Adon.
A new group founded by Ed following the downfall of Shadaloo. Ed founded the group with the intention of helping those like him; people who have been experimented on by Shadaloo. So far, it's been shown that Ed has recruited Falke, a gorilla, and a lanky man with crazy hair. A number of other members also appear in an art book.
- Animal Theme Naming: The few members that are currently named have this going on. 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).
- Anti-Villain: They're either this or they've been mistaken for evil. They're interested in helping those who have been tortured and experimented on by Shadaloo, which sounds noble, but they're given an overall sinister looking uniform. The heroes also seem to have issues with Ed and Falke's use of Psycho Power, but so far they seem to just want to be left alone.
- 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.
- Fat Girl: One of them is a chubby girl in a Hawaiian hula outfit.
- Improbable Hairstyle: The lanky man's hair is a massive, 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.
- Killer Gorilla: One of them happens to be a gorilla.
- Monochromatic Eyes: The gorilla has glowing blue eyes.
- Team Mom: The chubby Hawaiian girl is stated to be this for the team.
"She's the agent working for Shadaloo! We have the authority to arrest her!"

A 59-year-old police officer from Brazil. He has three sons, who are also police officers. He's fought by Cammy in the game's story mode, in order to save Decapre from arrest.
- The Danza: Voiced in English by Peter "Combofiend" Rosas.
- Expy: He looks quite a bit like Commissioner James Gordon
- Joke Character: He has ridiculously low health, and only a few simple moves. It's practically impossible to lose to him, even on hard mode.
- Lawman Baton: One of his only moves is a double-swing of a nightstick.
- Police are Useless: An aging police officer stands no chance against a young special forces agent.
- Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: He actually does use his gun...once, in a cutscene, and he misses. Then, when Cammy begins retaliating, he puts the gun away and tries to take her down with only a nightstick and a few simple punches and kicks. It doesn't work out well for him.
"I have to go now, Rashid. One last thing: please enjoy the rest of your life. Goodbye."
Voiced by: note
A female scientist who helps to stop Shadaloo from the inside by stealing the Operation C.H.A.I.N.S access keys, and sending them around the world to various fighters.
- Boyish Short Hair
- 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.
- Meganekko: She wears a pair of red-framed glasses.
- No Name Given: She's only ever referred to as "Rashid's friend". Not even Rashid ever says what her name is. For that matter, the characters all seem to go out of the way to avoid saying "she" or "her" (except for one instance, courtesy of Helen), even though her gender isn't exactly masked by her single appearance in the story. This seems to be a thinly-veiled attempt to cast doubt as to whether the person Rashid was looking for was her or someone yet to be seen, at least up until F.A.N.G confirms that it's her by blurting out in frustration that he "should've killed that traitor much earlier" right in front of an angered Rashid.
- Parts Unknown: It isn't made clear as to where she's from. She is friends with Rashid, who is from an unidentified country in the Middle East, but she does not look or sound at all Middle Eastern, but then again, Rashid doesn't have an accent either.
- Playful Hacker: It seems that she was this before getting taken by Shadaloo, with her last program containing a cute chibi Rashid.
- Small Role, Big Impact: All she did was steal the Operation C.H.A.I.N.S access keys, and sending them around the world to various fighters and creating a command code to shut down Operation C.H.A.I.N.S before meeting her demise but it was because of her Shadaloo has been defeated. If she didn't do what she did then things would have gone very differently.
- Ungrateful Bitch: Despite them having been close and being fond of each other, Rashid always thought she was this, since according to him, she never thanked him once for all the times he saved her ass. However, she does get to thank him at the end of the story, through voicemail, some time after dying, making for one hell of a Tear Jerker.
- The Unseen: Subverted. She has an onscreen appearance, but it's very brief before she's killed, and the camera mostly shows her from behind. The image above is from her model being datamined by modders after the story mode patch released.
Roxy, Axl and J

- Anime Hair: J, whose hair is long and points upwards.
- Badass Biker: Axl likes motorcycles and works for Abigail's vehicle modding company.
- Disproportionate Retribution: Abigail lends them his monster truck so they could do some shopping. Then Abigail forgets about that, goes on a rampage, and when they return and remind him that he willingly let them borrow it, he beats them up, even though they did nothing wrong.

- Reformed Criminal: They seem to be working a legitimate business under Abigail's supervision.
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.
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 appears as a boss in the Extra Battle Mode in V.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Chun-Li is forcibly turned into a cyborg minion by Shadaloo.
- Canon Immigrant: The Shadaloo Combat Research Institute profiles on the Street Fighter V Character Encyclopedia website has an entry for her.
- Cyborg: Shadaloo forcibly converts Chun-Li into a machine against her will by Shadaloo. Her robotic body contains a veritable arsenal of high-tech weaponry.
- Double Jump: Her triple jump, actually. It's done thanks to the built-in Rocket Boots she has.
- Energy Shield: Shadow Lady can use the Plasma Barrier to zap and stun opponents. It can be also used as an anti-air.
- 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. As announced on the Street Fighter website, the boss battle is insanely tough as she has more armor, leaves behind afterimages that are distracting, and takes little damage. On the other hand, Shadow Lady 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.
- 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 cybernetic minion for Shadaloo. Unlike Chun-Li, Shadow Lady is a calculating and near-robotic individual who is dedicated solely to aiding Shadaloo's criminal activities.
- Robot Girl: Her Extra Battle Mode challenge in Street Fighter 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: Her feet have built-in miniature Vernier thrusters for flight, enabling her to do an air dash to evade enemies.
- Secret Boss: Only appeared as an extra boss battle in Street Fighter V's Extra Battle Mode for a limited time.
- SNK Boss: She is an utter nightmare to fight against as she plays by Marvel-style rules, and even the Street Fighter website describes the boss battle as very tough, with devastating combos that can eat away 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.
- 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: Shadow Lady's body has been plated with Ceratanium armor that can shapeshift into several forms. Most notably, she can turn her hands into drills for certain attacks.
- Unwilling Roboticization: Chun-Li was captured against her will by Shadaloo and converted into a brainwashed machine. Her modifications by Shadaloo have also granted her some new abilities too, such as hiding missiles within her body or generating fields of electricity 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.
- Wall Jump
- X-Ray Sparks: Shadow Lady protects herself with a plasma barrier that electrifies enemies. Said electrocution makes the player's skeleton visible.

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.

Originally a member of the Mad Gear Gang, Two-P acts as the NPC opponent in the Bonus Stage of Arcade Mode.
- Cool Shades
- 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
"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.
- Does Not Like Shoes
- Framing Device: Him espousing on the legend of Necalli is the Framing Device for Necalli's story.
- Knife Nut: He wields blades carved from animal tusks, though he isn't shown using them against Necalli.
- 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.
- Rapunzel Hair: His helmet fashions his har into a long ponytail.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He has long purple hair.
Sagat's faithful pet tiger who accompanies him wherever he goes.
Origin: India / USA
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 Indian nationals.
- 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.

- 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.

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.
- Shopkeeper: In V, she runs the game's shop with her brother. She even gives the player suggestions on what they might like depending on who they main.
- 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 Ito 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 Other Media
The sole playable character in the Street Fighter II (Animated) Movie game released in Japan only, the Cyborg in the game is a heavily modified Monitor Cyborg constructed specifically for combat, capable of analyzing his target's moves and use them after learning them. This cyborg tracked Ryu and in the game defeated him in battle. Depending on the ending, he gets inspired by Ryu and turns against Bison or he sticks to his programming and ends up replacing the fallen Vega as one of the Four Devas.
- Canon Immigrant: Originally from Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie and playable in the game based on it, the Monitor Cyborgs are apparently considered canon thanks to the Street Fighter V Character Reference.
- HeelFace Turn: Something that could happen after he beats Ryu.
- Hurricane Kick
- Kamehame Hadoken
- Shotoclone: He has Ken's special moves from Super Turbo with a new sprite.
The father of Karin Kanzuki, and original head of the Kanzuki family, before being usurped by Karin.
- Alternate Company Equivalent: He looks a lot like a young Heihachi Mishima, and the relationship between him and Karin can be compared to that of Heihachi and Kazuya - except without all the evil, of course.
- Archnemesis Dad: He's been trying desperately to take back his place as the head of the Kanzuki family. Unfortunately, he's been unsuccessful so far.
- Badass Mustache
- Canon Immigrant: Much like Karin herself, he originally appeared in the manga Sakura Ganbaru. However, he's yet to make an appearance in any of the actual games.
- Dysfunctional Family: He and Karin aren't exactly on good terms ever since he was kicked from his position as head of the household, and he apparently doesn't even live on the Kanzuki Estate anymore.
- Non-Idle Rich: He was the head of the Kanzuki family, after all.
A legendary Muay Thai fighter who defeated Sagat when he was a young boy.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: His body is covered in scars, the most obvious being the x-shaped scare on his face.
- Large and in Charge: He's 210 cm tall (6' 8'') and a Muay Thai champion.
- Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Was one when he was a child, and he was allegedly strong enough to have defeated Sagat at that age.
- Rags to Riches: He comes from a poor village, but made a name for himself with his fighting ability.
A lieutenant of Delta Red, and trusted friend of Keith Wolfman, in charge of tactical operations and support.
- Beware the Nice Ones: She's nice, but is apparently feared amongst her peers because when she gets angry, things get ugly.
- Canon Immigrant: Her first appearance is in Masahiko Nakahira's Super Street Fighter II: Cammy Gaiden, although with a much different look.
- Fat Girl: Compared to the other Delta Red girls, she's a lot rounder, which makes sense, considering that she isn't normally a combatant.
- Friend to All Living Things: Her profile picture shows her caring for a rabbit and a bird, and her profile says she has six cats.
- Kind Hearted Cat Lover: She's got six of them, after all. Not even Cammy has that many.
- Punny Name: "Ackerson" is a perfectly regular English surname, but the way it's pronounced in Japanese is very similar to the word for "mum/mom" — "Okasan". As she's something of a Team Mom for Delta Red, this is likely no accident.
Dee Jays good friend and manager who despite being a fun guy like Dee Jay has to somtimes brings him down to Earth. Owns a pet parrot named Bellamacha as well as her three chicks which can be seen from Rick's head.
- Butt-Monkey: Prone to getting hurt by Dee Jay's antics.
- Cool Shades: Wears white glasses with transparent orange shades.
- Determinator: Practiced the bongo-sized djembe drum until he suffered hematuria from sitting down for so long.
- Does Not Like Shoes: Barefoot in his picture.
- Dreadlock Rasta: Wears a head full of braids.
- Fun Personified: Described as having the same mood as Dee Jay, that mood being happy and easily excitable.
The youngest child in a family of fishermen, who sails the seas on her ship Partenaire.
- Canon Immigrant: She originally appeared in Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes as Ruby Heart, as one of three Capcom characters that premiered in that game.
- Cool Ship: She has one, named Partenaire. It's unclear if it's a Cool Airship like in her origin game, though.
- Everything Sounds Sexier in French: Her nationality is Norwegian, but she mostly spoke French in MVC2, and even her ship's name is French for "Partner".
- Pirate Girl: She has the look of one, and her father was a pirate, but she's apparently just a fisherman and sea explorer.
Portrayed by: Kenya Sawada.
In the live action Street Fighter movie, Captain Sawada was one of Guile's more trusted allies in the AN and aided in the assault on M. Bison's base. In the arcade game based on the film, Sawada is promoted to commander. In the main canon as of Street Fighter V, Sawada is still a military Captain who works for the United States Air Force who personally volunteered for any operations against Shadaloo. He uses his own self-taught style called the Sawada-ryu Kenkajutsu (Sawada-style brawling techniques) mixed in with some elements of Ninjutsu (most likely his teleportation move the Ninpo Kamikakushi).
- Bloody Murder: His Gokusatsu Jibakujin, a move where he stabs himself and forms an arc of blood to protect him from attack while simultaneously damaging opponents if they get too close. The move gets lampshaded in his SFV profile as it tells the readers that they "must not imitate it".
- Canon Immigrant: Originally from the first Street Fighter film and Street Fighter: The Movie. While Street Fighter V is rolling, Capcom has been steadily releasing concept art for pretty much every character who ever threw a punch in SF, extras, or just-for-fun stuff. He is included as one of the former cases◊. Now, he is considered canon to the main series.
- Composite Character: He was already this for Guile (military may in fatigues) and Fei Long (Asian man with quick normal moves, a "Rekka-like" attack and a flying kick). Becuase of his SFV art and profile, he's also being compared to Ryu (Japanese man with some stoicism who loves to train and wears a headband).
- The Danza: For his actor, Kenya Sawada, to the point in his canon SFV profile that every single one of his stats and preferences is lifted from the actor's website (with love of course).
- Finger Poke of Doom: His Super Combo in the console version, Kamikaze Banzai. He puts his hands in the air and sliding into his opponent. It looks stupid but it's quite damaging; he's invulnerable to projectiles while performing it.
- The Good Captain: His rank in both the first Street Fighter film and official canon, where his SFV profile calls him Captain Sawada. This was also his former rank in the Street Fighter cartoon before he replaced Guile in the AN.
- Katanas Are Just Better: He actually doesn't use it often, the "sword" people thought he used for the Ki Raisen and Ku Raisen in the arcade version of Street Fighter: The Movie was just a motion blur. In the console games, he only uses it to initiate the Gokusatsu Jibakujin. In the Street Fighter cartoon, however, he practically goes nuts with it in his second appearance.
- Lethal Joke Character: While his special moves in the arcade version were practical and effective, in the home version new moves were created out of the old ones or created from scratch but had a more...unique take on them. The Hyakuretu Izungiri looked cool but had Gadoken level priority, see Bloody Murder for the Gokusatsu Jibakujin, Sawada Special '95 was an amazing combo kick attack that's been instantly dated by the year the console game came out, Ninpo Kamikakushi uses a stance that may poke fun at the "win taunt" Sawada used in the ending movie, and the Kamikaze Banzai, while a powerful 5-Hit combo super move that can snuff out projectiles, also has him do a standing slide into his opponents while his arms are raised above his head.
- Made of Iron: In the case of the elements at least as he has a strong resistance to cold.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: Kenya Sawada obviously but also his close friend, Jackie Chan who Captain Sawada bares more than a slight resemblance to in his SFV artwork.
- Rapid Firefisticuffs: His Hyakuretsu Izungiri, which is a ki-based rapid chop attack that surrounds his hand with blue and red energy with a similar appearance to the Sonic Boom.
- Teleport Spam: Ninpo Kamikakushi, which works the same way as Dhalsim's Yoga Teleport.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Effectively replaces Fei-Long in the movie-based game's lineup.
Blade, Arcane, Khyber and F7 are based off the Bison Troopers in the live action movie. These four are high-tech shock troops from Shadaloo's American branch who are skilled in using deadly weapons as well as hand to hand combat.
- Adaptation Name Change: Initially known as the "Bison Troopers" in the 90's film, the name of these elite shock troops became "Shadaloo Troopers" when they became part of the main Street Fighter canon.
- All Your Powers Combined: F7 has all the other Troopers' attacks.
- Alternate Company Equivalent: Take a good look at them and the game they're originally from, and then recall the various ninja characters like Scorpion, Sub-Zero and Reptile from the Mortal Kombat series, as well as the robots Sektor and Cyrax. In fact, Arcane's name is spelled as Arkane in the original game. Switching hard C's with K's is Mortal Kombat's gimmick.
- Canon Immigrants: Originally from the first Street Fighter film and Street Fighter: The Movie, they are now canon thanks to the Street Fighter V Character Reference.
- Cool Mask: They all wore identical masks in their original appearance, but then their Street Fighter V artwork gave each of them a unique mask.
- Crossover: Blade's true identity is supposed to be Gunloc from Saturday Night Slam Masters, who is rumored to be Guile's brother.
- Elite Mooks: Each of them is considered an elite Shadaloo soldier, with Blade being the lowest rank and F7 being the highest.
- Evil Minions: They are a part of Shadaloo, after all.
- Expy: Of the the multicolored ninjas (Scorpion, Sub-Zero and Reptile) and robots (Sektor and Cyrax) from Mortal Kombat.
- Faceless Goons: Although their Street Fighter V artwork at least gives them unique looking masks.
- Fat Bastard: Street Fighter V artwork depicts Khyber as a heavyweight.
- Knife Nut: Blade and F7 and how!
- The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: According to their SFV bios, Blade is from America, Khyber is from America and F7 is from America. Arcane, on the other hand, is from Poland.
- Palette Swap: Blade wears a red suit, Arcane wears blue, F7 wears black and Khyber wears yellow. Their Street Fighter V artwork differentiates them a lot more, with each of them having a unique looking mask and differing body types.
- Playing with Fire: Khyber and F7.
- Psycho Electro: Arcane and F7.
- Rubber Man: Khyber and F7, though this is downplayed or ignored as of their Street Fighter V descriptions.
- Spell My Name with an "S": It's either Arcane or Arkane, depending on whether you're looking at the English CFN website, or the Japanese site and the game he's originally from.
- Stun Guns: Blade and F7.
- Super Soldier: They're Shadaloo's elite troops.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Khyber's and Arcane's specialties are fire and electrocution attacks, just like Dhalsim and Blanka respectively.
- Teleport Spam: Arcane and F7.
Origin: South Korea
The sole new character of Street Fighter Online: Mouse Generation, a Japanese-Korean Taekwondo master whose father is a former Japanese Karate master, while his mother comes from a long line of Taekwondo masters from South Korea. Though, he didn't like fighting and would rather become a musician or painter. Eventually, he changes his tune after being inspired by seeing Alex battle Gerald Golby in a Vale Tudo tournament during his time in America. After seeing that fight, Shin returned home and returned to his TKD training.
- Bishōnen: A young man with full blonde hair, green eyes and movie star looks. He has pretty boy all over him.
- But Not Too Foreign: As mentioned in his bio, he's half Japanese and half Korean, he also has blonde hair.
- Canon Immigrant: Included in Street Fighter V's Character Reference after a near decade of uncertanty if he even was a Street Fighter character.
- Extremity Extremist: Uses kicks as most of his attacks.
- The Fighting Narcissist: Shin is a mild case, while he's relatively easy going, he has great confidence in himself, likes flashy things, and hates things that are plain, simple or what he precives to be uncool. He takes his appearance very seriously and the only reason he chose to study Taekwondo over Karate is because he thought TKD looked cool.
- I Know Karate: Subverted, he could have been a karateka, but choose to do the taekwondo thang instead.
- Original Generation: The only truly new character created for a game that was more like a crossover, than a true Street Fighter game.
- Sliding Scale of Free Will vs. Fate: Initially, Shin did not want to follow in his family's footsteps and become a fighter, as he did not like combat sports and had other interests. He changed his mind because the thought TKD was cool, but it's stated in his story that he was destined to be a fighter due to his lineage and his own personality. All it took was semi-final fight in America to change his tune.
