10 Characters We want To See In Street Fighter V

 

It's not hard to see that the Street Fighter series has it's fair share of unique characters, many of whom get plentiful of love and affection. Regrettably, this does not apply to all characters. With that said, here are 10 characters we want to see make their debut in the forthcoming PS4 and PC exclusive Street Fighter V.

1. King Cobra




The series is supersaturated with martial artists, adding another karate character to the roster would have felt excessively unnecessary. Nevertheless the style and presentation on Cobra is a great deal in tune with fight culture and the series than any of the other characters in recent years. A quick summary of King Cobra tells us several things. An African American that isn't a boxer, already this character is separating himself from the rest of the pack and standing out.

Cobra's shaven head and young appearance shows us that this man is attempting to prove his worth by challenging the greatest fighters around the world.  Hopefully Daigo Ikeno is saving King Cobra for Street Fighter V and he debuts as one of the new challengers.


2. R.Mika 




Push aside the dark hadou and all the moodiness of Akuma, and at heart Street Fighter is a gleaming, flamboyant series. Nobody embodies the colourful fun of the series more than Rainbow Mika. Sure, she isn't the toughest of fighters, but she looks like she's having fun. The simplest way to describe R.Mika is she's a female version of Zangief. We haven't seen her since Street Fighter Alpha 3, so it's time to bring her back into the mix.

3. Alex 



Another grappler we hope to see return is Alex from Street Fighter 3. The flagship character of the third Street Fighter installment hasn't been seen in action since 2010, in a spin-off title. Alex's arrogant personality, cool character design and flashy move-set really stand out and we'd like to see him return for the fifth Street Fighter outing.

4. Sean Matsuda 




Sean is another character from the Street Fighter III series that we hope makes it on to the final roster. If Sean is bought back his 2nd Impact move-set would be prefered as well as a stronger story canon as opposed to being written off as a joke character.

 And while he may have a style that's a bit similar to Dan, Sean's no pushover. With his Double-Fist Shoryuken and ground and pound offense, Sean would make a cool addition to the roster, and also serve as a nice middle ground between Dan and Ryu.

5. Sodom




Another Final Fight character that crossed over into the Street Fighter Franchise, Sodom just about looks like a samurai NFL player. Starting off as the leader of Mad Gear gang from Metro-city, he joined the Street Fighter tournament in order to recruit more tougher opponents to join his crew. Handling katanas or jitte, he was certainly a force to be reckoned with.

6. Maki



Originally making her first appearance in Final Fight 2 as one of the main characters , Maki would fade into obscureness after her sole occurrence in the series. She was brought back in Capcom vs SNK 2, which in turn led to her making an appearance in the PSP port of Street Fighter Alpha 3.

While Maki may seem unneeded with Guy, Maki could make a good comrade for the trainer-clad ninja. Both share many similar traits, but feature enough differences that having two wouldn't feel clone-some. So capcom should step up it's ninja game and bring back the female assassin for Street Fighter V.

7. Q



Who the heck is Q? To us he's just a really tall cyborg that's sent out by M.Bison to locate all of his enemies. His fighting style is just direct and barbarous. Clotheslines, pimp slaps, dropkicks and everything else in his repertory all are equivalent to a character that would make for a cool fit in Street Fighter V.

8. Elena 



The first African female character of series deserves to make her return in Street Fighter V. Much to our pleasure the Kenyan princess was bought back in Street Fighter X Tekken and Ultra Street Fighter IV alongside three other obscure characters, but like fan favourites Chun Li and Cammy we want her to become a regular part of the roster.

She's much more than just a two-piece-clad tease with fluent and graceful motion. Elena's also a lot of fun to play and has the ability to chain together quick combos with a speedy, kicks-only capoeira fighting style that makes her just about the polar opposite of Balrog.

9. Mike Haggar



Despite being arguably one of the most recognizable characters to come out of the Final Fight series, the previous mayor of Metro City is one of it's three original heroes to never be playable in a Street Fighter game.

Sure, he appeared in stage backgrounds in the past, and sure, you can purchase his costume for Zangief to wear in the Street Fighter IV series, but the mustachioed, ass-kicking wrestler-turned-politician has yet to come out of retirement to snarl with the likes of Ryu and M.Bison.


10. Karin



The stereotypical rich girl and daughter of the owner of the Kanzuki Corporation, Karin would fit right in. Also, we have seen enough of Ryu and Ken's rivalry. It's about time we have a Sakura-Karin thing going on.

Although her fighting style looks similar to Sakura, she created an alternate version of it adding a lot of variation to speed of her attacks, feign strikes, and counter attacks. Her combos are pretty difficult to master but with practice she can be a very effective character.

Who you do you want to appear in Street Fighter V?

  1. King Cobra would be my first pick too and Capcom would certainly redeem themselves if they made him playable again in Street Fighter V.

  8. Every SFEX character... yeah I know it isn't possible, but it's a nice thought.

  9. man people like to set themselves up for disappointment. this is like ultra 5th unrevealed character all over again. sf4 had a pretty diverse roster, but that took like around 7 years to build. i pretty sure street fighter v will do the same, but all in time.

    ReplyDelete
  10. they need some EX characters like Blair and Pullum and some alpha characters like R. Mika.

    It sounds crazy and i hope i'm not the only one but i want Geki back :/

  14. The SF2 cast are set for life while a good chunk of human characters from 3 should be seeing a comeback again as they did in 4s expansions. The characters introduced in 4 however are screwed because they're too minor and didn't see much play. El Fuerte, Hakan, Seth, C Viper and Rufus don't have a chance. Abel makes sense story wise and the fanbase have generally took a liking to Juri for some reason.

  15. That feel when your main might not be in Street fighter v.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I agree with alot your list but I would definitely replace Maki with ingrid, she far more interesting but its always good to meet another fan of King Cobra, Sean, Karin, Elena and Alex.

    Shame though, knowing Capcom I fully expect them to play it safe and stick with the classic cast unfortunately

  17. Dudley please!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Capcom need to bring back Non-nerfed Sean. He was higher on tiers than Chun-Li or Yun.

    ReplyDelete
  19. And King Cobra is a must for Street Fighter V, the freshest Street Fighter concept EVER.

    I really hate this, why don't they do like tekken does it, all characters from the previous game + new characters!

    I know there would be a fuck ton of characters, but why not!? the more the merrier!
    They should just include the fighters from the original down to ultra, including those guys from EX some of those guys are fucking cool and they're just stuck in that piece of shit game covered in dust...

    ReplyDelete
  22. Karin....Fuck Yeah !

  24. Mike Haggar, About time we bring him back!

  25. Karin Kanzuki must be included in this game if it wants to sell well. If Yoshinori Ono has any clue, he will add her. Also, King Cobra would be a nice addition.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have a feeling because of the time it takes place we'll see a decent amount of SF3 characters. If so, I'm excited to see how their stories might tie in and intertwine with some of the leftover SF2 and 4 stories and characters.

    ReplyDelete
  27. The subject of the timeline might influence certain inclusions, as SF3 had a few younger characters. Assuming it takes place before SF3, the amount of time between SF5 and SF3 could render characters like Yun, Yang, Ibuki, Elena, and Sean a bit young to be included.

    all of USF4 - ALL , and charlie, Sean, Alex And Ingrid could be back, well it would be the best if all ever characters would be there including more Shadaloo dolls

    ReplyDelete
  29. I wouldn't mind seeing Alex in SF5, although not in any serious role. Oh, and Guile has to be in the next game.

    ReplyDelete
  30. King Cobra is the best choice on this. To be honest i want to see new characters and new villains mostly. Always new characters before old ones making a comeback, except for the S2Turbo ones and evenso, not all of them.

    Alex and Sean are definitely my choices mainly to make a comeback on for Street Fighter V! But I would love to see new characters and how their new playstyle to be introduced!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'd like to see older Sakura and any of the young fighters but like in their 20's or something. Maybe a new move here and there, something to make them feel fresh.

    A non-prison Cody without handcuffs would be awesome, along with some more Remy. I'd really like to learn more about him.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Capcom needs to tap into their sub characters more from the sf universe. Ibuki's ninja mates? R. Mika's other wrestler Yamato? I want to see Gill's secretary make a cameo (Kolin) as well but fat chance that'll happen? Looking forward to their new character designs. Give us some King Cobra Capcom!

    ReplyDelete
  34. No Skullomania?! This list is a JOKE. (Just kidding, I know it's because Capcom doesn't own him.)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Balrog
    Birdie
    King Cobra
    R.Mika
    Elena

    I think its time for haggar to make his street fighter debut.

    ReplyDelete
  37. No love for the Street Fighter ex characters :(

    ReplyDelete
  38. Lets be realistic; characters such as Necro, Remy, Karin have very similar move-sets as the original cast (Blanka/Sim, Guile/Charlie, Makoto) and they will most likely be left out.

    As well as any character from the Street Fighter EX series since Arika partially developed the series.

    Since this will not be a spin-off but an entirely new entry in the series I would assume all the "Street Fighter IV" characters (Rufus, Viper, El Fuerte, Juri, Hakan) not to appear.

    Most likely the original cast including The Shadowloo will be playable. It is plausible the "Super Street Fighter II" cast (Fei Long, Cammy, Dee Jay, T. Hawk) might be as well.

    That being said, original move-set characters might see a return; R. Mika, Ingrid, Sean, Sodom, Oro, Alex, to name a few.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Why does everyone like Karin? I didn't play Alpha 3 but she doesn't look that good or fun to play, am I wrong?

    ReplyDelete
  40. I think it's highly likely that Alex will be making a comeback, I’m hoping Sean and Q get some love and I want to see R. Mika finally make her long overdue return, Elena would be nice to see again.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Can anyone explain the fascination with Karin and R.Mika. I always see them rank high in these character polls.
    Is everyone that asking for them actually main them in Alpha? Or is this another case of a few serious ones and the rest are bandwagon jumpers trying to look cool by voting against the norm?(eg. Shotos)

    And do people actually plan to main these characters or just drop em after like a week to go back to status quo top tiers?
    I recall a similar thing with people nagging for Rolento back in Street Fighter, but you hardly ever see him represented.

    Not trying to hate people's choices. Just trying to understand them.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Maybe Capcom would take the SFIII route and mostly introduce completely new characters and just retain a few old ones. I honestly don't mind if they go this route since the series needs to evolve beyond the usual and familiar world warriors of the past.
