Ingrid (イングリッド Inguriddo?), also known as the Eternal Goddess, is a video game character who first appeared in the fighting game Capcom Fighting Evolution, before joining the Street Fighter series starting with Street Fighter Alpha 3 MAX. She was originally designed by Hidetoshi "Neo_G" Ishizawa and Yoshinori Ono for the canceled fighting game Capcom Fighting All-Stars as one of four original characters.
Ingrid has long, pure white hair with bangs and two, large gold pins, one on each side of her head. Her irises are red in color. Her outfit resembles that of a schoolgirl's, consisting of a light, purplish-blue, long-sleeved top with white accents, gold buttons, and a white bow below the collar; a matching, short, pleated skirt with a white petticoat; white gloves; brown tights; and black, high-heeled Mary Janes with a bow on each instep.
Based on her Street Fighter Alpha 3 MAX in-game profile, Ingrid is the shortest and lightest playable Street Fighter character to date, standing at only 5' (152.4 cm) and weighing 86 lbs (39 kg). The Street Fighter: World Warrior Encyclopedia, however, states her height to be at around 5'10" (179 cm) and her weight at 108 lbs (49 kg).
Ingrid is an extremely powerful being who detests the evil nature of the Satsui no Hado. Wise and intelligent despite her apparent physical age, she also has a playful side which includes the tickling of defeated opponents, yet also displays an unusual lust for power and often comes across as aloof. Furthermore she holds Ryu and Rose in high regard.
Little, if anything, is known about Ingrid; however, Street Fighter Alpha 3 MAX presents some possibilities about her true origins. Her source of power is apparently derived from Psycho Power, yet is not purely evil like that of M. Bison; though seemingly quite similar to Rose's Soul Power. Ingrid claims that she is the true bearer of what is called "Psycho Power", telling M. Bison that said power is hers and that he has stolen it. How M. Bison came into possession of the power is never explained, however the core of the machine he uses to harness it, the Psycho Drive, does bear a resemblance to the gold crests on her hair. When M. Bison is eventually defeated, she comments that a regular human being like him couldn't possibly control such power and takes the whole Psycho Drive with her as she leaves.
Ingrid also possesses psychic abilities similar to Rose's, addressing both Ryu and Rose by name, despite never revealing them to her. This power is so intense that if given the chance, she can actually break Ryu's madness if he ever succumbs to the Satsui no Hado. Rose also cannot look into Ingrid's future as she did with other Street Fighters. In addition, Ingrid has the power of time travel, sending herself to the year 201X in her arcade ending, where she notices that Ryu "is up to something interesting".
Before cancellation, some plot details of Capcom Fighting All-Stars revealed that Ingrid was one of three Code Holders (the other two being D.D. and Rook) contacted by Mike Haggar, who are needed to defuse a bomb called Laughing Sun, hidden in Metro City by a character known as Death. She is also given the nickname "Eternal Ray", likely relating to a ray of sunshine, given her attack theme.
After the cancellation of Capcom Fighting All-Stars, Ingrid, unlike the other three original characters, was remade as a 2D sprite for Capcom Fighting Evolution. Her gameplay is for the most part unchanged, outside her Sunshot traveling a much farther distance.
After finishing arcade mode with Ingrid, her ending depicts her banishing Pyron, after which she decides to take off her gold crests, possibly giving up her power.
Ingrid is included as one of 10 S-grade Capcom character cards in SNK vs. Capcom Card Fighters DS, with her artwork being drawn by SNK artist Takkun.
Ingrid's model from Capcom Fighting All-Stars was used as a test model in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom and according to the Japanese pre-order booklet, she was also revealed to be playable at one point but was cut alongside Phoenix Wright from the Ace Attorney series, Komugi Narahara from Nurse Witch Komugi and Muteking from Muteking, The Dashing Warrior.
According to the prologue comic book by UDON, Ingrid plays a role in the background story of Street Fighter X Tekken as the creator of Pandora; she sent it as a 'gift' to Earth to test humanity by using the temptation of the box's power.
Capcom Social Games Edit
Ingrid appears alongside other Capcom characters in the social games Minna to Capcom All Stars, Onimusha Soul and the rhythm RPG Otoranger. The latter of which also includes appearances from D.D. and Rook.
Ingrid appears as a solo unit in Project X Zone 2.
Gameplay and fighting styleEdit
Ingrid fights using an unknown power that infuses ballet-like attacks with energy manipulation including telekinesis, power blasts and strange magical sigils.
Her gameplay mostly focuses on using her flashy specials for a large variety of mix-ups. She has great air maneuverability thanks to her exceptionally long and deceiving hitbox, her back-flip is an efficient anti-air and her counter is strong however stricter in timing compared to other characters with counters such as Karin. Her zoning capabilities are also unique due to her arching projectiles, the only fighter in the series known to have one. Despite these advantages, her overall damage output isn't very strong and she has low vitality.
- See Ingrid/Quotes.
- In Street Fighter Alpha 3 MAX, when Ingrid finishes her opponent by using her Level 3 Sun Delta Super Combo, her Midnight Bliss pose from Capcom Fighting Evolution is reused as a victory pose.
- Ingrid has a unique opening when facing Blanka in Street Fighter Alpha 3 MAX, where she throws a random fruit (being either a pineapple, a watermelon or a hand of bananas) upon which he either catches it in his mouth or gets hit on the head with it.
- Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada has cited Ingrid as one of his favorite Street Fighter characters and has teased about the idea of her being a rival to Tekken character Lili (whom is similar in appearance).
- Her theme song, entitled "Heat Haze", sung by Maiko Kubo, contains a series of six notes that resemble part of the opening riff from "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" by Iron Butterfly.
