Allen Snider (アレン・スナイダー Aren Sunaidā?) is a character who appears exclusively in the Street Fighter EX series by Arika. He debuted as a hidden character in the original Street Fighter EX.



Allen wears a dark purple gi and has a hairstyle similar to that of Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker. His hands are taped up and the sleeves on his gi are held together with a red string.



A martial artist once reputed to be the greatest living Karate master in the United States. Allen was the favored contender in the All American Martial Arts Tournament, but lost on his first match against a then-unknown Ken Masters, who told Allen that he was still a "big fish in a small pond".

Motivated by Ken's words, Allen renewed his training and developed new techniques based on Ken's such as the Soul Force (Hadouken) and the Rising Dragon (Shoryuken). Allen began traveling the world to prove that he is not only the "biggest fish in his pond", but also the "biggest in the ocean".

Other appearancesEdit

Allen also appears in the Arika-developed non-Capcom fighting game Fighting Layer along with Blair Dame.

  • He is the parallel to Ken as Dan is to Ryu, because Allen uses techniques copying the Hadouken and Shoryuken, wear an undershirt inside their gis, sport unorthodox gi colors (purple for Allen, pink for Dan) and they're both voiced by Osamu Hosoi. However, Dan is a parody of Ryo Sakazaki and Robert Garcia from SNK's Art of Fighting series.
  • Allen shares many of Ryu and Ken's attacks, but yells the attack names in English rather than Japanese; "Hadouken" becomes "Soul Force", and "Shoryuken" becomes "Rising Dragon".
  • Before Ryu's 3D model was developed for the EX series, Allen Snider was the first creation of Arika's prototype models to create the similar moveset into Ryu.
