Top 10 Fighting Game Characters

The Top Ten Fighting Game Characters

1 Scorpion - Mortal Kombat Scorpion is a recurring player character and occasional boss character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game franchise created by Ed Boon and John Tobias. His debut is in the first Mortal Kombat game.

Liu Kang might be the hero of Mortal Kombat, but Scorpion is definitely the face of Mortal Kombat and all fighting games

Best moves, easy to play with, cool ninja custom, and a very catchy catchphrase. Scorpion is a total package.

Yeah, a character that iconic easily deserves his place in this top ten list. What else could I say? "Come here. "

Most of all is signature moves are legendary moves.

He has a nice story (not the best but very good) he's fun to play in every mk game and is also the face of one of the best selling fighting games of all time

2 Ryu - Street Fighter Ryu is a video game player character created by Capcom, the protagonist of the Street Fighter series.

He is a very easy to use character along with ken. The hero we don’t deserve

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

How is Scorpion higher, he's just some dead ninja designed for angsty teenagers who love blood. Ryu is a genuine hero, Scorpion just gets manipulated over and over again, that stupid dumbass.

Ryu is the symbol of fighting games and nobody can challenge him.

3 Reptile - Mortal Kombat Reptile is a video game character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game franchise created for Midway Games by Ed Boon and John Tobias. He debuted in Mortal Kombat as a hidden opponent and appeared in subsequent titles as a playable character, also appearing in the merchandise and other media related more.

Reptile is one of the first secret characters in fighting game history. But ruined him by turning him from a badass reptilian like ninja to a damn lizard (MKDA)

4 Sub Zero - Mortal Kombat Sub-Zero is a video game character from the Mortal Kombat series and one of the original characters in the first Mortal Kombat game in 1992. A mainstay of the series, Sub-Zero is the only character who has appeared in every main Mortal Kombat fighting game.

He and scorpion are like the Ken and Ryu of Mortal Kombat. Sub Zero is an amazing character and a very patient, calm and reserved character.

He's better than second best ninja in fighting game's. Fist it's Scorpion

Sub-Zero is litterally the coolest fighter around! And nobody does brutal elegance like he does.

He could above from guile

5 King - Tekken

His looks as to having a Jaguar mask is what turned me on to this character. I got more in depth to his story and I find it more intriguing than the Mishima storyline lol. King is one of the most badass characters in fighting game history. I find him better than Jin and Kazuya

Who Is Perfect With King, Will Always Hit A Perfect in Tekken!

King is the best..his storyline.. His chain grapple is the best

King is king

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

From being a discount Kazuya to one of the Strongest Fighters in Tekken Universe.

He has devil powers, destroyed both his father and grandfather (I know it sounds weird), Looks cool(although does stoopid things like causing war), and has an awesome moveset

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

7 Cammy - Street Fighter Cammy White, also known as Cammy and the codename Killer Bee in Street Fighter Alpha 3, is a video game character in the Street Fighter fighting game series and the second female fighter to appear in the series, after Chun-Li.

Best girl of street fighter. Cammy is an icon in fighting games.

In my opinion she is the best female in street fighter

8 Nitara - Mortal Kombat

Nitara, really? I feel like she’s a character with potential for future mk games but doesn’t deserve to be this high on the list

9 Johnny Cage - Mortal Kombat Johnny Cage is a fictional video game character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game franchise by Midway Games. He was introduced as one of the series' original seven player characters in the first Mortal Kombat game in 1992, and has become a staple of the series.

If anyones old school like me Johnny Cage is my main on Mortal Kombat 2

He's awesome


10 Vega - Street Fighter Vega, is a fictional character from the Street Fighter fighting game series by Capcom. Vega is a mask-wearing, claw-wielding fighter from Spain who uses a personal fighting style combining Japanese ninjutsu and Spanish bullfighting, earning him the nickname of "Spanish Ninja".

My first fighting game was Street Fighter 4 and I always played as Vega when I was a little kid. Now I’m 16 and I still love Vega. Such an awesome character

Man kabal should be number 3 subzero should be number 2

He is one of Kirby's rivals, but occasionally teams up with the pink puffball to defeat a common enemy. Meta Knight is known for his powerful slashing attacks and flight in the Super Smash more.

Meta Knight is everything, he's all you ever wanted. You can win a set now, even if you never won it. Clashes he always wins, trade, they ain't ever gonna. You want him forever any counter pick he's better on it.

Aerial is down, press it while I'm jumpin' up. Then hit the B button like I don't give a F***, I know you wait for it, but you're out of luck, I can do the same thing every single time, I say

19 Link - Super Smash Brothers Link refers to several different incarnations of the same protagonist of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series.

Has an amazing move set really well balanced character.

20 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 the best ever.

31st? Bull! Yoshimitsu is iconic, being one of the most innovative and unique characters of two different series! Vote!

22 Liu Kang - Mortal Kombat Liu Kang is a fictional character and the main protagonist of the Mortal Kombat fighting game series from Midway Games, introduced as one of the original seven player characters in the 1992 first game as a Shaolin monk who enters the Mortal Kombat tournament to save Earthrealm.

Real hero from MK series. He saved their asses so aften

Get out of here scorpion here comes an g

A.K.A Mr. Bruce Lee.

23 Kano - Mortal Kombat Kano is a character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. He is one of the few original characters, debuting in the first Mortal Kombat arcade game.

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

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.

24 Raditz - Dragon Ball Z Raditz is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

When she debuted, Lili was described as a rich shallow girl from Monaco, who uses her skills in dance to fight in her own street fighting style. Lili more.

Her fighting moves are very graceful... Her costume is really the most attractive I've seen so far in female characters... Definitely one of the best fighting game characters... So I think she deserves the top 5..

Hottest female character... Got my vote lili

34 Darth Vader - Soul Calibur IV
35 Noel Vermillion - Blazblue
36 Hsien-Ko - Darkstalkers
37 Hwoarang - Tekken

Even tho he has a hot headed personality , he's not someone to mess with.Call him Foolish or Brave but he stood n survived an encounter with Devil Jin and that's impressive to say the least. He's one of those characters that is easy to pick and play but is also extremely complex with his various stances .

He is the Kick Master.

He's AMAZING rival's for Jin.

He is the best figher

38 Benimaru Nikaido - The King of Fighters

He is cool and electric

39 Sonya Blade - Mortal Kombat Sonya Blade is a video game character from the Mortal Kombat series. Debuting in the original Mortal Kombat game from 1992, she was a late addition to the game as developers decided deep into the development cycle that the game needed a female character.

The most famous female character in any fighting game sonya blade what a bad ass she is

This girl knows how to kick your...

40 Heihachi Mishima - Tekken

Heihachi is probably the last old guy you would like to have trouble with. Despised his old age he's ridiculously strong . 'A human with a strenght of devil'. He's such a power house that he even walked in like absolute badass and single handedly regained control of Mishima Zaibatsu as a rightful owner. Heihachi has such a durability and strenght that it's even questionable if he can die by unnatural causes as throughout the Tekken history we saw him numerous times survive death .

Hah. Old Bastard.

41 Goku - Dragon Ball Z Son Goku (Kakarrot) is the main protagonist in Dragon Ball franchise created by Akira Toriyama in 1984. He has many abilities like, super strength, utilization of ki, flight, teleportation, super speed, enhanced reflexes, and Super Saiyan transformation that increase strength, speed, and durability. more.

How the hell didn't anyone vote for Goku, the greatest Saiyan, the greatest fighting character of all time! He deserves to be the BEST, just look at his history, nobody defeated more characters tgan Goku did. No other fighting character attacks at the speed of Goku, nobody has more super powers than him, nobody can make wishes just like he does, nobody is more respected than him, what more can I say. Goku I ssimply the best
