Capcom's Street Fighter is a one-on-one fighting game that has been around for decades. No matter what version is your favorite, the franchise is continually pumping out new titles to appease fans. One of the great lasting appeals of the franchise are the characters, all of whom have in depth stories that contain real world problems. Army vets, martial arts masters, fathers, cage fighters, dictators, men mutilated in the jungle; there is something for everyone. It was even the place where the first fighting female character was available to players. But who, after all the years of battle, stands as the most powerful player in a roster crammed with muscle?
As with my other power lists, strength isn't the only factor to consider. There is speed, wisdom, intelligence, technique and direction; even a profession can boost a rating. Please, do not take any notice of the Street Fighter film when assessing the characters. Not only was that an inaccurate portrayal, but it made viewers believe that the likes of Kylie Minogue actually had a chance at an acting career...anyway, where was I? Oh yes, power. Spinning kicks, Hadoken, Sonic Boom...moves that were screamed in the playground as you beat the hell out of your classmates and pretended to be the figures on this controversial list. Did I miss anyone? Is someone ranked too high? Please leave a comment, enjoy! Without a doubt though, these are 10 of the most powerful characters in the history of the Street Fighter franchise.
1 M. Bison
Bison is your typical bad guy, but that doesn't make him any weaker. After all, it is hard to argue with someone that evil who is desiring world domination, M. Bison is the main antagonist of the series and will easily kill for pleasure. He commands the Shadaloo and despite taking a lesser role in later games, he still remains the most powerful character in the franchise. Ruling his realm as a dictator and containing the psycho power, nearly every character on this list wants to fight him for revenge; even those that were once on his side. Replacing Sagat as the final boss in Street Fighter 2, M. Bison has become more demonic as the series progressed but still has the iconic look of his cap and cape. The capital M in his name adds to his mystique; the series has used Mighty, Mike, Master among others, but we've never found out what it actually means. Ultimately what really matters though, is that in terms of power, he is unrivalled: god-like in his abilities and strikes fear into the heart of every opponent.
