Capcom's earliest attempt in the fighting genre, the game allows you to play as one of two young martial arts experts and pit them into a worldwide cast of other street fighting champions. Though this game did not really shine as a hit, it introduced Ryu and Ken to the world as well as a classic cast of characters that reappeared in future sequels such as Birdie, Gen, Adon and Sagat. It is not until 4 years later that the franchise became a monumental blockbuster to the fighting game genre.

Bison, the Lord of Shadaloo. The game proved extremely popular worldwide that it spawned multiple franchises and sequels, as well as other companies making their own versions of fighting games. This legendary patriarch of the modern fighting game era introduced another two very popular characters: the Chinese agent Chun-Li and American G.I. Guile, both having personal grudges against Bison for the murder of her father and his best friend, respectively.
