The fighter on which all other fighters were based on, along with Ken, which is further down on the list for some reason.

Ryu isn't look like great, scorpion is terrible but I liked his swag of fighting games

The most iconic and recognizable character period - nytrizzle

Scorpion = a character for edgy teens
Ryu = a true hardworking hero

3 Jin Kazama - Tekken Jin Kazama - Tekken Jin Kazama is a fictional character and main protagonist of the Tekken series released by Namco Bandai Games.

We all have played fighting games (either tekken, either street fighter, either both or something else) but it's certain that we all have played and loved tekken as well as Jin...especially most gamers have identified with this epic character!

He can transform into Devil Jin and he'll beat you up like no one else. I'd like to see scorpion take on him in devil form

Jin is the most handsome and powerful character that I have seen

He is amazing and hot what else?

13 Kano - Mortal Kombat Kano - Mortal Kombat

Kano is my favourite character in Mortal Kombat and in my opinion the best character in Mortal Kombat. Kano is the most bad ass character that plays by his own rules while leading the Black Dragons and can shoot a laser out of his eye. Plus how awesome is that metal plate on his face, which I gave to my created character in MKA. I think Kano should be ranked 1.

He one of the worst guy in fighting game history there I said it - s646463

Never understood why players jumped to calling Kano 'lame' or weak. I've used them, they're neither; In my opinion hating a fight game charcter because they're an antagonist or their rival is female is a lame reason.

Kano have dead one eye, of eye he is me red shine. Kano is shine eye to push up laser and he is werry speed, bodylifting and great power. Kano is saka to heart in body. He is red and black costeem.

14 Fulgore - Killer Instinct Fulgore - Killer Instinct Fulgore is a player character in the Killer Instinct series of fighting games by Rare. Fulgore was introduced in the original Killer Instinct in 1994 as an advanced fighting cyborg and a nemesis of the protagonist Jago.

I loike the finisher were Fulgore goes up to the opponent, grabs them and then laser-eyes them - sagat2010

15 Yoshimitsu - Tekken Yoshimitsu - Tekken

35TH?! What, that's bullshit! Yoshimitsu is a complete BADASS! He is extremely iconic and so is his awesome ever changing design. The alien-like ninja has an awesome fighting style with a sword that is possessed!

He is actually so awesome that he is a regular in both Tekken AND Soul Calibur, clearly he needs to be much higher - VOTE!

He is one of those guys who know how to get people get... - sagat2010

He is the best ever.

This guy is really a cool swordsmen and why is he below voldo he clearly can eat him.

I would definitely be in the 1st in the top best swordsmen in fighting games.
