Street Fighter general storyline
The Street Fighter series storyline
Attention: keep in mind that SF0 takes place between SF1 and SF2.
Now the rest of the characters, in all the episodes, have simple stories, with simple plots that
are explained at the end of the game. So I'm not gonna spoil everything... I think the
above is enough.
- Regarding Ryu, Ken, Gouken, Gouki/Akuma and Goutetsu.
This is clear only if you pay attention... All of this takes place before SF1.
Goutetsu has teached three killing technics to his two students, Gouken and Gouki (Akuma), who
are brothers. These technics are the ShouRyuKen (Dragon Punch), the HadouKen (Fireball) and the
TatsuMakiSenpuuKyaku (Wirlwind Kick).
Being a "good man", Gouken removes the "intent to kill" from the technics and teaches them to Ryu
and Ken. But Gouki is more evil. He perfects his art of killing, and to make his strength
ultimate, tests it in a fight with his master (Goutetsu). He wins. His only quest is now to find
oponents worth to kill.
It is possible that he also killed his brother (Gouken), but we're not certain for now.
- Regarding Ryu and Sagat.
SF1: Having finished his training with Gouken, Ryu tests his strength in a fight with
Sagat, a great Thai fighter. He defeats him severely, opening a huge scar on his chest with a
SF0: Since then, Sagat seeks revenge. His scar reminds him every day of the boy who
defeated him, and feeds his hate, to a point rarely seen before...
SF2: Again, Sagat seeks revenge, but in the meantime he has joined the Shadoloo,
Vega/M.Bison's criminal organisation.
- Regarding Ken and Gouki/Akuma. ATTENTION, SPOILERS FOR SF0'S ENDINGS!!
It seems in SF0 that Ken has been much more affected than ryu by his master's death. The only
really important thing for Ryu seems to be the true way of the warior. But Ken is much more
emotive. He lets his rage flow when he fights.
After SF0: At the end of SF0, Ken meets Eliza. She asks him why he fights with so much
energy, and he tells her he won't stop before he gets one man. The begining of a love
SF2: After defeating the boss (makes more sense if it is Gouki from SSF2X), he meets back
Eliza, and marries her. Could it be the end of Ken in the SF series ?
Note: The story with Ken wanting Gouki for killing Gouken is only speculation since it is not
very clearly explained.
- Regarding Chun Li and Vega/M.Bison. ATTENTION, SPOILERS FOR SF0'S ENDINGS!!
After SF1: For some reason, Vega kills Gen (from SF1), who happens to be Chun Li's
SF0: Chun Li goes after Vega to arrest him for his drugs trafics, but even more
for having killed her father. She gets defeated, but is still alive.
SF2: Having recovered, she is once more determined to arrest him.
- Regarding Nash/Charlie, Guile and Vega/M.Bison. ATTENTION, SPOILERS FOR SF0'S ENDINGS!!
SF0: Nash, a member of the US army, wants to arrest for Vega/M.Bison for some
unknown reason. As he gets victorious, Vega strikes him in his back, viciously killing him.
SF2: Guile, a very close friend of Nash, goes after Vega to kill him, for good.
