Top 20 Street Fighter Characters of All Time

9. Akuma (Super Street Fighter II Turbo)

9. Akuma (Super Street Fighter II Turbo)

Introduced in Super Street Fighter II Turbo as a new final boss, Akuma has the same fighting style as Ken and Ryu, but he enhances these moves with supernatural powers. His cross-screen teleport is incredible, his aerial fireballs do major damage and his dragon punch is so quick and efficient that it's incredibly hard to counter. In addition, his outfit screams badass, with huge dragon beads around his neck and a glowing emblem on his back.

    Ken made his debut in street fighre 1, so whoever did this countdown probably didnt do enough reserch and probably only picked this on his own judgement. The top 4 should have been, 4.CHUN-LI, 3.AKUMA, 2.KEN, 1..RYU. Simply cause Ryu as well as Ken has been in almost every street figther bassed game around they are the original characters. This is like putting Darth Vader last in a best star wars villians countdown. Not good

    Are u serious? How do u pick Chun-Li over Ryu and Ken? And how does Guile end up at 10? Guile, Ken, and Ryu should've been the top 3. This countdown sucks big time.

    Chun-Li over Ken and Ryu? ARE YOU MAD?!?!!? And then Blanka and Zangief over KEn? WTF? Dammit I need to stop reading these b/s articles, cause you guys are idiots. Chun-Li over Ken. riiight.

    I always picked Chun-Li first too! when i noticed that she wasn't in this, i thought you guys were going to be bias and pick ur Ryu or Ken first. ut i see now that Chun-Li is the ultimate Street Fighter.

    Chun-li is my favorite too, she belongs there.

    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.

  • ookees on 12/2/2008 10:35 pm

    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.
