Mine would have to be Ken. Sure, Ryu maybe be more recognizable as the Street Fighter poster boy, but I find Ken to be a way cooler Character. While Ryu focuses mainly on the Hadoken (going by his Speacils in Street Fighter games) Ken relys more on the Shoryuken. which I like more than the Hadoken (which is more like a Kamehameha fi anything.) Plus, His theme pretty much became THE song for Street Fighter for alot of people.  and in my opinon, is one of the songs most Recognizable to gaming. (for me anyway)

Ryu is being trained by Oro, nuff said, Ryu > Ken.

Zangief and balrog

Guy and Sakura. I used to be into Ryu quite a bit, but in all of the anime/manga he's in it's always about the "Dark Hadou" inside of him and how he has to overcome it. It starts to grate after a while.

I like Ryu the most. Although Ken is pretty much the same character I just don't like to use him.

Chun, Ibuki, Alex, Ryu, Rolento

Me and Ryu go way back, you know, but I loves me some kunoichi and classy businesswomen.

I mostly play Ryu.

@REVenant00: Akuma is not really corrupted, but at least you didn't say demonic like everyone else does (he's not that either). He just has an interesting code he lives by.
 
But yeah, probably Akuma.

I play as Chun so I should say her... but I really like other characters for their design like Rufus in IV and Q in Third Strike.
#13 Posted by Driadon (2995 posts) -

Blanka, in both play style and that he's just plain goofy. Cammy's pretty cool to.

#14 Posted by Scarlet_Rogue (497 posts) -

Somehow I doubt that....
#21 Posted by mubress (1517 posts) -

Rufus because he looks like a joke character but is actually GOD LIKE in SFIV.
 
Hope he plays okay in super.

#22 Posted by Plasma (931 posts) -

3s Dudley of course, more the way he plays than the character really...
Picture from some SF manga where Oro is training Ryu to try and match Dudleys speed, and this punch actually breaks Dudley's arm =(

I like the more obscure Street Fighter characters. Zangief, Dhalsim, Balrog, Sagat, and Bison are my favorites. Don't make me choose beyond that.

#27 Posted by Necrotrophic (261 posts) -

Ryu is the man, no doubt.

My picks as well. I used to play with Cammy a lot in SSF2, while Blanka seems so different then the rest of the roster. It's just fun to play as him.

By Blanka I meant Ken. Sorry for the confusion. :)
#31 Posted by Scooper (7882 posts) -

Sagat and Oro are my favourites.

#32 Posted by MrJared (397 posts) -

Without question, Zangief is my favorite character. Not only do I love everything about his design and how he's evolved over the years (He's a gigantic, bear-wrestling, Russian gay with the most powerful moves in fighting games. Too good.), but he's also the reason why I started taking SF2 seriously when I was a kid. All my friends would play just Ken and Ryu but when I went looking for competition, I saw every character in the roster and realized that I could play whoever I wanted, and thus began a decade+ of practically non-stop Zangief play. Everyone knows I love the dude ... my girlfriend made me a custom Gief toy and I even had him etched into my iPhone.  
 
Runners-up? Hugo from SF3: 3rd Strike comes to mind immediately, not only because I have a certain affinity for the giant grapplers, but because I love all his ridiculous animations. Makoto, also from 3rd Strike is up there mainly because her sprite work is probably Capcom's best. Every frame of her attacks is filled with so much energy and emotion that it's hard not to get excited watching her fight.

Balrog and Dudley.

#35 Posted by Stang (4726 posts) -
@demontium: First to ten? Thought so. Kthx.
 
I am going to give this Dudley chap a shot in Super. His man titties are overwhelming, he has to be top tier.

Someone has a fetish for black gentlemen with big muscles.
#37 Posted by Napalm (9020 posts) -

I like Sakura, Charlie and Dan (for comic relief).

#38 Posted by Symphony (1912 posts) -

Chun Li, Ibuki, Sakura, Juri, and Vega.

#39 Edited by Melvargh (489 posts) -

I never really played alot of SFIII, but my favourite character is in it. And that character also happens to be in Super Street Fighter IV...
 

 Let's fight like gentlemen.
Everything about Dudley is awesome. The look, the style, the attitude, the moves, it's all fantastic.

Skullomania.

@thegoldencat7: Hmm, Bison was getting discussed over in another thread too. Quite tempted to pick him up again. Want to play some games tonight? I'm trying to use a fightstick atm.
#44 Posted by addictedtopinescent (3645 posts) -

Real obscure picks there. Champion Edition obscure! lol 
 
I used to like Ken the most, but in SFIV he is mad gay. So forget him.
#46 Posted by Belonpopo (1823 posts) -

I play as Gouken and Gen a lot. A little Rufus and Chun-li, I squeeze a lot of Ryu time in too.

#47 Posted by SuperSecretAgenda (696 posts) -

It's a tie between Dan and Karen.

#48 Posted by RedEyesBlueBunny (1011 posts) -

Gen. Vega and Chun Li are pretty cool too, i guess. and the new chick for super ss4 looks cool too
