Street Fighter hottest Female Characters
Street Fighter Girls by Reiq

Plenty of questions are commonly asked about individual Street Fighter games, pertaining to who the best fighters are and the best strategies to use for players while fighting online and for local play. Here’s one asked a tad less commonly: Who are the sexist female characters in the Street Fighter franchise? Not to say the question has NOT been asked -- you know it has. But it’s a conundrum for The Hotness Connoisseurs.


10. Karin Kanzuki

Karin Kanzuki by T-bone

See Karin in action:

Karin Kanzuki debuted as an alternate counterpart to Sakura Kasugano (not on this list, sorry) in the Street Fighter series in Street Fighter Alpha 3, a rival like Ken is for Ryu. The two have since resolved any bitter feelings they had for each other into adulthood, embracing the Ryu/Ken dynamic by being friendly rivals. Karin never hesitates to let others know she’s rich, and shows it, but she maintains a healthy balance between haughtiness and kindness.

Karin also knows how to keep a good mixture between classy and sexy, shown through her wardrobes in Street Fighter V. Several of her outfits show off her solid toned physique and great legs, while showcasing her expensive (though affordable to her) tastes in clothes. This even goes for her swimsuit, in which she wears a large and classy straw hat to protect her from the hot sun alongside a short cape and expensive sunglasses.

The Street Fighter franchise has strong competition for the sexiest female characters, but Karin distinguishes herself through her desire to keep it stylish. All her outfits exude subtle sexiness instead of in-your-face fanservice, because it’s not like there aren’t plenty of other characters to fill that gap. The stellar combo of her stylish class, the pigtails, and the ever-faithful noblewoman laugh really do it for some people. But no one’s calling you out if that’s your type.


9. Falke

Falke by Senga

See Falke in action:

Falke was new on the scene in Street Fighter V, as somewhat of a female counterpart to Ed. Like him and others affiliated with Shadaloo, she uses Psycho Power in battle, with the combination of that and her staff usage making her move set unique. She’s also similar to Ed through how she was made to be a host body for M. Bison whenever he found himself in serious, and perhaps fatal, trouble.

Falke sticks (ha) out from the rest of the Street Fighter cast thanks to her figure. Her default outfit in SFV shows her well-endowed toned physique, forgoing pants for a gaze at her legs. Honestly, all of her outfits nail a bunch of fetishes, with her Story outfit in the game also providing a solid display of her feet. She doesn’t know how to use those toes as well as Juri, though.

Her best display of sexiness comes from her Christmas season outfit, which comes complete with a boob window and mimics her default outfit through how she doesn’t wear any pants. That’s absolutely impractical for winter, but the legs simply cannot be contained.


8. Rose

Rose by Easson Li

See Rose in Action:

Rose originated from the Street Fighter Alpha games, another character who was a potential host body for M. Bison should something fatal happen to him. The man clearly has a type. She’s remained in the franchise as a fortune teller since then, helping other characters like Ryu along their way, and even taking on an apprentice like Menat.

Rose was a character for the older types before Chun-Li and, to a lesser extent, Cammy were finally aged up in Street Fighter 6. Her outfits are more modest compared to the other female characters, but she exhibits a subtler sense of sexiness through a tight onesie that emphasizes her curves. It helps that she’s “anime” enough that she hasn’t visibility aged all that much.

The subtle sexiness also applies to her array of other outfits throughout the years, including the Victorian dress that emphasizes the bosom. It’s the kind of outfit fans wanted for years after seeing a certain piece of art that originated from the Alpha days in the 1990s. When you’re young at the time, these images stick with you.


7. Crimson Viper

Crimson Viper by @kage_matu_re

See Crimson Viper in Action:

C. Viper was one among about a handful of characters introduced in the Street Fighter IV days. She starts off as a character spying on Shadaloo and scoping out M. Bison, pretending to be on their side while infiltrating them. This leads to her best-friends-forever relationship with Juri, which simply must continue in a future game. Hey, that could be Street Fighter 6.

She’s, pardon the trend here, another lady designed for the older set through her appearance, with her being a mother over 30. Not to mention that nearly every single one of her outfits highlight her incredible physique. She’ll need that to use the body suit with experimental powers, and her other athletics.

The sexiness power level could only increase on the scouter if she maintains and strengthens that friendship with Juri. Just imagine how fearsome the duo could be, outside the copious amount of fanart and some of the official stuff out there.


6. Poison

Poison by JadeGretzAI

See Poison in Action:

Poison debuted in Final Fight as one of the most common enemies the player encountered during their side-scrolling brawling quest. Her popularity wasn’t high enough for her to appear in future Final Fight games (outside the little-remembered Japan-only fighting game), but it was enough for her to make her way into Street Fighter as a playable character.

Every single one of Poison’s appearances emphasizes how hot she is. Her default outfit consists of a tank top that bares her midriff, Daisy Dukes, and heels made for piercing her opponents in combat. She bears enough skin to show off her muscular and athletic physique.

The combination of her outfits and whip emphasize how she inherits a dominatrix/BDSM style for usage in combat. Old brawlers had an interesting fascination for BDSM styles in the 1990s, and it’s nice that the developers have continued to give Poison this style over the years. Decades, really, considering she goes back to the late 1980s.


5. Rainbow Mika

R. Mika by Dantegonist

See Rainbow Mika in Action:

Rainbow Mika (typically shortened as R. Mika) debuted in Street Fighter Alpha 3, as the first female wrestler to appear as a playable character in the Street Fighter series. As such, she uses a plethora of wrestling moves in battle. She even includes her tag-team partner, Nadeshiko, in some attacks in Street Fighter V.

R. Mika, being a wrestler, has one of the most muscular physiques in the Street Fighter series. Her being a female Japanese wrestler means she was one of the most extravagant and scantily-clad default outfits in the series. Heck, her default one manages to show more skin than her swimsuit. She has an even wilder alternate outfit too.

All of her outfits are made to emphasize her curves and muscular appearance, being a wrestler capable of body slamming several guys who are far larger than she is. But don’t get distracted by her appearance before you get clotheslined.


4. Laura Matsuda

Laura by Naughtyaigirl

See Laura in Action:

Laura was introduced as one of the newest characters in Street Fighter V. But like several new faces in the series, she has a connection to a previous member of the roster. She’s the older sister of Sean Matsuda, the latter introduced as the new trainee of Ken Masters in the Street Fighter III series. Laura isn’t a trainee, though, which explains why she fights so differently.

In addition to her fighting style, the design team at Capcom made sure to highlight her curvy Brazilian form. Most of her outfits sport some sort of cleavage up top. Several of her bottoms leave little to the imagination, including tight chaps if they aren’t short shorts or bikini bottoms. She’s electric.

Well, she’s also electric because she uses electric-based attacks in battle, thanks to her projectile and powered-up command throws. Someone at Capcom clearly thinks that all Brazilian fighters use some sort of electricity, between Laura and Blanka.


3. Juri Han

Juri Han by Dantegonist

See Juri in Action:

Juri was one among the several characters introduced in the Street Fighter IV series, and became by far the most popular character from the games. She’s the first Korean fighter introduced in the franchise, one who incorporates a fantasized Taekwondo style with her Psycho Power-suffused attacks. She’s one of the most likably-evil anti-villains in the Street Fighter franchise, and perhaps all of fighting games.

Let’s be real: Her sexiness absolutely helps here. Many of her outfits bare her midriff and show off her curvy figure. She uses her legs for many of her attacks, which need to be strong and toned to pull them off. She also knows how to use her feet, and tortures her opponents with them. Truly, evil is sexy.

It’s honestly blasphemous to see Juri wearing an outfit that doesn’t bear her feet these days. Though maybe Capcom should give it a shot just to see what the reaction will be like.


2. Cammy White

Cammy White by EndOfLineArt

See Cammy in Action:

Cammy is an MI6 operative for the British Government also referred to as the “Killer Bee” who debuted in Super Street Fighter II, though she wasn’t always in that position. The Street Fighter Alpha series and Animated Movie both showed how she started off as an assassin for Shadaloo, though was brainwashed at the time. All of her fighting knowledge led to her becoming the speedster she remains today.

Cammy has always brought sexiness with her, sporting a leotard (of power) in her very first appearance. The leotard outfit became so iconic that variations of it stuck on as her default outfit for several games. But even her newest outfit in Street Fighter 6 emphasizes her sexiness by showing the abs on her midriff and wearing tight exercise pants.

She’s very popular and highly-played for good reason, though it helps that she constantly places high on tier lists in several games. She’s not stopping here, either.


1. Chun-Li

Chun-Li by Easonn Li

See Chun-Li in Action:

Chun-Li was a former police officer and Interpol agent, with her chief objective being to take down M. Bison for the litany of crimes he committed. She also has a personal stake, after Bison ruthlessly murdered her father. She’s since retired to care for an orphanage, and raise her adopted daughter, Li-Fen.

There are several gamers for whom Chun-Li was the first female character they found attractive, thanks to her massive legs. They’ve remained a staple to this day, to the point that Chun-Li acknowledges them herself in Street Fighter 6’s World Tour. She’s had tough competition with Cammy, but Chun-Li tops this list thanks to being the OG.

Capcom also knew this when they gave her a dizzying array of alternate outfits throughout Street Fighter V’s lifeline. She is, and will remain, the most popular female character in not only the Street Fighter universe, but fighting games overall. She’s got the looks to back it up, too.


There was plenty of tough competition for the sexist female character in the Street Fighter series, which made this list a bit difficult to craft. Don’t fret if your favorite was left off, though they likely weren’t given their popularity. Fully expect Manon and Marisa to grace lists like these in time, when they get more hot, sexy, and sultry alternate outfits. You know they’re inevitable.
