The plot of the series revolves around the character Guile, who forms a G.I. Joe-esque team composed of other Street Fighter characters, which includes Chun-Li, Blanka, Cammy, Ryu and Ken, among others, to fight against General M. Bison and his terrorist organization, Shadaloo. The series combined plot elements of the Street Fighter video games and the live-action movie. While the characters were originally strictly from the Street Fighter II series of games, characters from the Street Fighter Alpha sub-series were featured as well following the releases of the first two games. Captain Sawada from the live-action movie appears in a few episodes, as do other supporting characters from the games such as Gouken, Delta Red, and the cast of Final Fight, who are featured in an episode based on that game.

CharactersEdit

Character Voice Actor Notes
Guile Michael Donovan Guile is the main protagonist of the series and is depicted as the de-facto leader of the "Street Fighters", a fictional peacekeeping force composed of several main characters from the games. He retains his rank and full name from the live action movie (Colonel William F. Guile). Unlike in the video games, Guile is single and has no children. He has an on-and-off relationship with an ex-girlfriend named Lucinda (an original character), and has a mutual attraction with Cammy. He appears in all Season 1 episodes and in most of Season 2.
M. Bison Richard Newman Like in the games, Bison is the ruthless and megalomaniacal ruler of Shadaloo. He serves as the main antagonist of the series.
Chun-Li Donna Yamamoto Chun-Li serves as the lead female character in the series and appears in most episodes like Guile. Like in the games, she seeks to avenge her father, who was killed by Bison. Like her movie counterpart, she also works as a news reporter.
Blanka Scott McNeil Like in the movie, the Blanka of the TV series is Guile's combat buddy Charlie, who was turned into a mutant by Dr. Dhalsim. He temporarily reverts back to his original human form in "Eye of the Beholder", where he wears an outfit similar to Charlie from the Street Fighter Alpha games, but with a green version of the same vest and still wears his shackles.
Ken Scott McNeil Ken is depicted as a traveling con-man who prefers to find ways to get rich rather than helping Guile and his team. He becomes a more prominent character during the second season and is the only character in the series to defeat Akuma in "The World's Greatest Warrior".
Ryu Tong Lung He is portrayed as Ken's traveling partner and is depicted as the more mature and responsible one of the duo. Like Ken, he becomes more prominent during the second season and retains his rivalry with Sagat from the games. His surname is "Hoshi" in the series and he has a cousin named Sachi who appears in "The Hand That Feeds You", though he has no relatives in the games.
Cammy Lisa Ann Beley Cammy is portrayed as a member of Delta Red who harbors a mutual attraction with Guile. In "Chunnel Vision", she leaves Delta Red in order to become a member of Guile's team. However, she is unexpectedly brainwashed by Bison in "Cammy and the Bachelor", and appears through the remainder of the series as one of his agents, until her brainwashing wears off in the final episode "Cammy Tell Me True".
E. Honda Paul Dobson E. Honda is depicted as a computer whiz who loves hacking into government files while also serving as a member of the Street Fighters.
Dee Jay Paul Dobson Unlike in the movie, Dee Jay is one of the heroes. He serves as the team's helicopter pilot.
T. Hawk Paul Dobson T. Hawk is a powerful Native American warrior who serves as a member of the Street Fighters.
Fei Long Paul Dobson Fei Long is a martial arts movie actor who is allied with the Street Fighters.
Dhalsim Garry Chalk Dhalsim is depicted as a former scientist who retreated to the Himalayan mountains and shunned technology after being forced to experiment on Blanka by M. Bison.
Rose Kathleen Barr Like the other Alpha characters, she has a non-speaking cameo in "The Medium is the Message", but plays a major role in "The Flame and The Rose" as a mystical psychic who enlists the help of Ken and Blanka.
Sakura Saffron Henderson (uncredited) Sakura appears in "Second to None" as a young Japanese girl who got into martial arts after witnessing Ryu's past fight against Sagat.
Guy Paul Dobson Guy makes a non-speaking cameo as Blanka's opponent in "The Medium is the Message", but plays a major role in "Final Fight", where he and Cody are assisted by Ryu and Ken from within their rescue mission to save Jessica from the Mad Gear Gang.
Cody Michael Dobson Cody appears in the episode "Final Fight", though he, Jessica, and many other Final Fight characters had previously made cameo appearances in the tournament audience from within "The Medium is the Message". As the episode in which he has a starring role is based on the events that took place before Street Fighter Alpha 3, Cody is shown to be in a healthy relationship with Jessica, and wears his civilian outfit from Final Fight.
Zangief Michael Donovan Zangief is depicted as one of Bison's recurring lackeys in the series, despite not working for him in the games. He had a similar role in the live-action movie, as well as in the unrelated Japanese anime series Street Fighter II V.
Sagat Robert O. Smith The second-in-command of Shadaloo. He eventually betrays Bison after the latter announces his plan to unleash a nuclear holocaust upon the world.
Vega Paul Dobson He appears in two episodes, "Eye of the Beholder" and "Face of Fury", both times as Blanka's rival.
Balrog Paul Dobson He makes a single appearance in "The Medium is the Message", where he ironically appears as a computer specialist working for Bison.
Sawada Michael Dobson He appeared twice in "Keeping the Peace" and "The Hammer Strikes" as Guile's replacement in the A.N.
Birdie Paul Dobson He is a henchman of Bison who plays a minor role and is beaten in a fight against Chun-Li. He appears again with a larger role in "Cammy and the Bachelor", where he works alongside Sodom.
Adon N/A Adon appears briefly in "The Medium is the Message" and has a non-speaking role as an unnamed street fighter.

Escher John Payne The head employer and liaison officer of the Street Fighters who usually contacts Guile and his team in order to give them their missions.
Gouken Robert O. Smith The master of Ryu and Ken whose chi is stolen by Akuma in "The World's Greatest Warrior". It is restored back to him by the end of the episode via Ken's victory over Akuma.
Burke Garry Chalk The leader and field commander of Delta Red who has a notable scar over his left eye.
Rory Scott McNeil A robust member of Delta Red who has both a cybernetic right eye and two cybernetic arms.
