Nanase (七瀬?) is a video game character from the Street Fighter series, first appearing in Street Fighter EX2 as a hidden fighter.. She is the current successor to the Mizugami clan, and younger sister to Kairi and Hokuto.



Nanase appears as a brown-haired teenage girl of average height, with her hair tied back in a ponytail. The top half of her outfit resembles a sleeveless floral-print yukata, with a purple shirt worn underneath it, as well as a breastplate on top. The bottom half of her outfit is a blue skirt resembling that of a traditional Japanese schoolgirl's uniform, along with matching colored socks and green sneakers. She wears greenish-blue gloves, matching her breastplate in color.

Her outfit remains mostly the same in Street Fighter V, save for her gloves and breastplate being brighter in coloration, and her sneakers being colored white.


Nanase is generally very cheerful, and has a bright and lively personality.[1]


Nanase was born to the main house of the Mizugami (水神?) family, growing up with her beloved elder sister and role model Hokuto. Although born to a family of kobujutsu masters, Nanase only trained to maintain the tradition and actually dislikes her training, slipping out whenever she gets the chance. However, Nanase avoids cutting training as much as possible in order to not upset her sister. In spite of her reluctance to train, Nanase is a skilled master of bojutsu.

One day, Nanase was surprised by Hokuto's sudden decision to forsake the title of Seiden (正伝?) of the Mizugami Ancient Art of Jujutsu and handed it down to her. Not long afterward, Hokuto disappeared and set off on a journey to fight a new enemy. Nanase later learned that Hokuto was in fact, searching for their long-lost elder brother Kairi, and went on a trip to prevent the two from fighting each other.

In her Street Fighter EX3 ending, she reflects upon her long-lost elder brother, Kairi, who had changed her life forever. Since her sister Hokuto left to find Kairi and never return, she was forced to learn and become a master of the art of her family's Mizugami style. Nanase, however, does not want to take this role, and wishes that one day things will go back to the way they were.


Fighting styleEdit

Nanase's fighting style is based in Bojutsu. Her growing bo-staff is usually used as part of her every special attack. Nanase also shares some attacks with Hokuto, particularly her throws. She is versatile in that she can attack from different ranges using her staff.
