Top 10 Most Offensive Street Fighter Characters

The Top Ten
1 Balrog Balrog, also known as Boxer, is a fictional character in Capcom's Street Fighter series. He made his first appearance in Street Fighter II: The World Warrior in 1991.

I don't see why anyone should get offended by any of these characters, it's fiction. I understand not liking the use of stereotypes as many have been used so much to the point that it's annoying, but to the point of them being offensive? No.

He's supposed to be a Mike Tyson parody. In fact, he's Mike Bison in Japan- the character we know as M. Bison is Vega there ("our" Vega being Balrog there).

His personality has "African Brute" and "American Pig" written ALL over itself and has virtually NO redeeming qualities, but at least playing as him can be pretty fun at times

Not to be THAT GUY, but you have to take into consideration these games were made in the 90s by the (then, sorta) non-diverse Japan.

2 Birdie

The version of him that appears in Street Fighter 1 actually is a quite normal white guy, but the version of him that appears in the Street Fighter Alpha trilogy is a black guy who quite-literally looks and acts like a gorilla, while the version of him that appears in Street Fighter 5 adds an almost-equally offensive stereotype (The Fat and Gluttonous Black Guy) to said caricature. However, HE generally is nowhere NEAR being as despicable as Balrog

3 Rufus

He is so much of a Fat American Idiot that he somehow thinks that going to THE NORTH POLE just to find cold weather is a good idea (a GREAT idea, in fact)

4 Adon

In Ultra Street Fighter 4, he takes being an Arrogant Asian Jerk to the point where he almost causes Courage TCD's Di Lung to look like a nice guy at times

5 F.A.N.G.

He looks like one of THE most stereotypical Chinese cowboys on Earth, and one of his main abilities is poisoning people (polluting Earth and spreading diseases)

6 El Fuerte

Being a luchador might be normal in Mexico, but being a "Super Dynamic Cooking Luchador" who is SO much of an idiot that he thinks that combining one good-tasting thing with another good-tasting thing always has good-tasting results DEFINITELY is not

7 Rashid
8 T. Hawk
9 Necro

The fact that he basically has "Chernobyl" written all over himself would be pretty offensive even if he didn't look and act stereotypically black, have a name that can easily get mispronounced as "Neekro", and have an EXTREMELY white girlfriend

10 Dhalsim Dhalsim is a video game character in Capcom's Street Fighter series. He made his first appearance in Street Fighter II: The World Warrior in 1991. In the series, he is a yogi, a husband, a father, and a pacifist who goes against his beliefs by entering the World Warrior tournament to raise money for ...read more.
The Contenders
11 Chun Li Chun-Li is a character in Capcom's Street Fighter series. The first female fighter of any fighting game franchise, she made her first appearance in Street Fighter II: The World Warrior in 1991.
12 Dan Hibiki

In practically all of the official Street Fighter games that he has appeared as a playable character in so far, he has taken being a terrible Chinese knock-off of the amazingly talented and Japanese Ryu to the point where his version of Hadoken is so pathetically short-range that practically ALL of his standard attacks are more useful than it

13 Sodom

He is a highly brutish American guy who takes being a pathetic dork who is completely obsessed with Japan despite not actually being Japanese (a weeaboo) to the point where he wears an utterly ludicrous-looking samurai armor suit during fights AND (in the original versions of Street Fighter Alpha 1, 2 and 3) accidentally says things such as "DIE JOB DEATH CAR?" after fights due to the fact that he ironically does not know how to properly use the language that he constantly pretends that his native language is

14 Sean

In Street Fighter 3, he has taken being a terrible (bubblegum-chewing and basketball-playing) black knock-off of the amazingly talented and non-black Ken to the point where he actually has been even MORE pathetic than Dan in some ways (for starters, the fact that Dan actually can use his version of Hadoken without "super charging" it while Sean cannot do so)

15 Cammy 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.
