- "Okay, baby!"
- —Joe, Street Fighter
Joe is a blond-haired American kickboxer who entered the first World Warrior Tournament but lost to Ryu.
Joe fights in a train yard, and very little is known about him.
- Many fans believe that Joe is the blond character in the intro to Street Fighter II who punches the African-American character who is often speculated to be Mike.
- However, other fans believe that the blond character is Cody because Final Fight was originally planned to be a sequel to the original Street Fighter titled Street Fighter '89 and the intro was going to be used for the game.
- The train yard stage in Street Fighter Alpha is reminiscent of Joe's train yard stage.
- In Final Fight: Streetwise, Kyle faces a Kickboxing fighter in Little Italy's fight club named "Ghost", who sports the same pants and hair style as Joe, leading some to believe that Joe and Ghost are the same person.
- Joe was originally planned to be in Street Fighter Alpha 3 as the "escaped prisoner fighter" but was later replaced by Cody.
- Joe is loosely based on Kickboxing legend Joe Lewis.
- Aside from the original game, Joe was never officially featured in any other Street Fighter related media.
- Joe is, however, included in the Tekken X Street Fighter poll for which characters fans would like to see included, meaning that he could very well make an appearance in the upcoming crossover. Also among the list are Mike, Geki, Retsu and Lee, fellow Street Fighter characters who have yet to be playable.
