Heihachi Mishima (Tekken)
Manliness, skill, power, money, style, and a pet Karate bear. He's got them all.

Joe Higashi (Fatal Fury)
The eternal optimist and all around goofball with unparalleled Muai Thai skill.

Yuri Sakazaki (Art of Fighting)
The slap you silly practitioner of Kyokugenryu Karate with spunk.

Fei Long (Street Fighter)
Sometimes you just want to play Bruce Lee and this adaptation hits closest to home.

King of Dinosaurs (King of Fighters)
If you want to tear your opponent apart like an animal and then Izuna drop them there is no finer choice.

Ah yes, back in the day the arcade was my second home, used to school mfs in games like Tekken 3, Soul Calibur, Rival Schools, Killer Instinct and more. I'll stick to the OT and only pick 5, 1 per franchise. In no particular order:

Eddy Gordo - Tekken 3
Orchid - Killer Instinct
Voldo - Soul Edge
Blanka - Street Fighter
Baraka - MK2

EDIT: I confused Tekken 2 with 3, getting old lol, corrected.

1. Lili (Tekken)
2. Mai Shiranui (KOF/Fatal Fury)
3. Noel Vermillion (BlazBlue)
4. Morrigan Aensland (Darkstalkers)
5. Ramlethal Valentine (Guilty Gear)







It's really hard to pick just 5 though. I loved the newest Samurai Shodown, it's a shame that all the layers of paid exclusivity and lack of good netcode killed it, because it's a fantastic game. Granblue is probably my favorite fighting game of the last 10 years, but it's extremely dead on PC.


1. Ayane (Dead or Alive)

2. Baraka (Mortal Kombat)

3. Taki (Soulcalibur)

4. Cammy (Street Fighter)

5. Noel Vermillion (BlazBlue)

Cervantes - Soul Calibur
Smoke - Mortal Mombat

Yoshimitsu - Tekken
Vanessa - Virtua Fighter

I like swords and MMA style fighters I guess. Smoke is there just cuz he is cool.
Duddley - Street Fighter
Jubei - Blazblue
Johnny - Guilty Gear
Soriz - Granblue Fantasy Versus
Shiki Ryougi (Full Moon Style) - Melty Blood

F31 Leopard

Jun Kazama - Tekken (I hope they bring her back)
Terry Bogard - Fatal Fury/KoF
