My personal favorite female character in fighting games would either be Noel Vermillion or Tsubaki Yayoi from the BlazBlue series.
She's a newer addition to the pantheon of female fighting game characters, but I freaking love Jaqui Briggs from Mortal Kombat. I like both her character and find playing her a ton of fun.
Yesss. She was okay in X, but amazing in 11. Between her and Takeda, I think the whole "Kombat Kids" thing worked out shockingly well, as much as I hated the idea at first. I even like Cassie quite a bit, even if she's the most "what if these two characters, but at once?" of the batch.
Bit of a sentimental pick rooted entirely in gameplay - in fact, I had to do a Google just to remember her name - but Sakura from Street Fighter IV. It was the only time in my life I had a regular group of friends who both did and didn't play games but somehow all got into SFIV, smoking weed and drinking together on the weekends. Sagat was my go-to character generally, but I always had a ton of fun with Sakura and felt like that was me at my most frustrating. Always fun to see friends' reactions to her agility.
There's so many good fighting game characters, it's tough to nail just one down. Makoto & Chun-Li from SF rank super highly for me, as do Xiaoyu, Eliza, and Julia from Tekken; Tira & Taki from SC; Rachel & Noel from BB; Mileena & D'Vorah from MK; King & Mature from KoF; I-No & Baiken from GG... Does Double from Skullgirls count?
If I was forced to pick just one... it'd probably be Chun-Li, as much as that's probably the safest and most popular answer I just always find her so much fun to play across all the games she's been in, and I love the vast majority of her designs too.
In my thread, I don't get to see anyone mentioning any female character from Super Smash Bros, really?
You said "Fighting Games" :P.
Yeah, Super Smash Bros is considered to be a fighting game franchise, for this thread, I was intending to see users share their personal favorite female character in this genre.
Plus I was expecting users to mention one of the playable female characters from Super Smash Bros.
When I was 8 or 9, my brother got a Super Nintendo and a little game called Street Fighter II. I immediately picked Chun Li, the sole Chinese and female character, and refused to use any other character. I am also Chinese and female, and it felt important to me to pick the character who looked like me. (I don't actually play a lot of fighting games, so.. Chun Li is my answer)
@azuregale: I mained accel cause his off-the-wall shot covered the entire screen and needed no weapon to do so while sending stones my way on flat maps, then falcon cause the huge damage against friends when I thought i needed it in 2 vs 1. Little did I know later in life I'd main the champ Ayame for life. She goes in my book as a glass cannon polished to perfection. Yeah, you can take me out in a good few clean combos...but can you even hit me. I'll be halfway across the screen by the time you shoot off your special even 3 inches in front of me. Best girl for sure.
LOL. I like the Brazilian dancer in street fighter too, animation is too smooth i wonder how they did it back then, Chun li for....reasons....DOA fighters....for reasons....I guess....a bunch of others....for...
Some of my favorites from different series.
Sakura from Street Fighter Alpha 2. Elena and Makoto from Street Fighter III. Menat from Street Fighter V.
Baby Bonnie Hood/Bulleta from Darkstalkers 3/Vampire Savior.
Jam and May from Guilty Gear XX. Ramlethal from Guilty Gear Xrd.
Akira and Hinata from Rival Schools.
Yuri from Art of Fighting 2 and King from Art of Fighting. Hotaru from Garou: Mark of The Wolves.
I'm naming the characters from where they originated from, but I like them in all the version of games they are in.
