- This article is about the Street Fighter character. For the Final Fight 3 enemy, see Joe (Final Fight 3). For the Street Fighter V NPC, see United States Air Force.
- "Okay, baby!"
- —Joe, Street Fighter
Joe is a tall, young fellow who has short, spiky, blond hair and wears red pants with white shoes.
Joe was formerly the unbeaten kickboxing champion of the United States before violent outbursts and financial troubles caused him to become an outlaw on the road. He currently participates in indie wrestling tournaments under the identity "Super Star".
- Joe is loosely based on the late kickboxing legend, Joe Lewis.
- Up until their new artwork was released for the Street Fighter V website, Mike and Joe were the only fighters never to be officially featured in any other Street Fighter related media outside the original game.
- Many fans believed that Joe was the blond character in the Street Fighter II intro who punches the African-American character who was often speculated to be Mike but the Street Fighter V website later revealed that the blonde character in the intro is a different character named Scott while the African-American fighter is named Max.
- The train yard stage in Street Fighter Alpha: Warriors' Dreams 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. This implies that he was probably supposed to be a feisty, impulsive individual, not unlike Cody.
