Top 20 Street Fighter Characters of All Time

2. Ryu (Street Fighter)

2. Ryu (Street Fighter)

Ryu is the original World Warrior, the one who's been in the series since it began in 1989. He uses a powerful technique that enables him to throw fireballs, dragon punches and hurricane kicks. For whatever reason, he refuses to train Sakura, doesn't bother with Sagat's revenge plot and rarely fights Ken . He always seeks a bigger challenge, and that determination makes him one of our favorites.

    M. Bison here = Vega there Vega here = Balrog there Balrog here = M. Bison there The name switch was to avoid lawsuits because Capcom purposefully Named the boxer M. Bison to make gamers think Mike Tyson in Japan.

    Ok, I know alot of people think chun li shouldn't be 1 but I seriously used to beat the world with her when I played street fighter II Not only that but she's also really good in marvel vs capcom 1 and 2. I play with sakura sometimes on streetfighter vs xmen and I do like her character and seriously wonder whats up with Ryu not training her. I guess im a guy that likes to play with girl characters, but its usually because they are more quick and nimble then some of the other characters.

    actually this explains it all, some weird 3 way switch.

    Im sorry but wasn't M.Bison original Balrog in Japan, and they switched hear in America because M.Bison being a boxer sounded too much like Mike tyson, at least thats what I remember and wikipedia also has it that way.
