Street FIghter V Character Hopefuls

Street FIghter V is already preloaded on my PS4. I'm hyped. And for some reason I wanted to do a blog about the characters I hope come to 5 in the future, with really quick reasons. ISome of these aren't shocking, but I bet most are unlikely. One of the only unlikely characters I've wanted since IV is Rainbow Mika, thankfully she's in the game! And in case someone says it, I know about the legalities between Capcom and Arika.

Makoto

What's weird is I never knew about Makoto until I read Street Fighter Legends: Ibuki. And I just loved her character. Then I bout USIV and fell in love with the fighter. I love that she's so cute and yet pounds her opponents so relentlessly. I just think she's adorable, and was my main in Street Fighter IV(I usually wreck shop too!) She is a fairly popular character(definitely one of the most loved SFIII characters.) So yeah, this doesn't seem too farfetched.

Elena

Elena is just such a happy and joyous character, and she wrecks shop with only her legs. She was the most requested Super Street FIghter IV character allegedly, so fan demand was high then, hopefully it still is.

Skullomania

I haven't played Street Fighter EX since the 4th grade(11 years ago); however, I still remember just about every character that was introduced there. I think they managed to give them a great aesthetic that separated them from other street fighter characters. Skullomania, skull superhero, is fairly popular and he's just insane. He would be a great addition. Though EX characters are extremely unlikely.

Garuda

Akuma is a really awesome character. I mean as far as demons go, he's probably one of the most iconic, especially in gaming. However, if I had to choose my favorite demon from Street Fighter it would certainly be Garuda. FIrst of all, it would mean one less Shotoclone in the roster. But also, this MFER here is just the coolest. He's got knives coming out of his body, a bada** mask, and it just awesome. If I had to have one character from EX making it to the Street Fighter 'canon,' it would be him(possibly her?)

Sakura

Shotoclones right? Maybe it's because I'm not professional, but I don't feel too much difference amongst most of the shotoclones.Only slight differences. That might be what makes the game so technical, but when it comes to those characters, it can be boring. Only Sakura feels significantly different to me. Sacrificing some power, and giving significant speed. Sakura actually mangages to feel different, and is my favorite of the shotoclones, she's also so cute!

Sharon

This was the character I used the most in Street Fighter EX, I don't know why. I guess it's because of her awesome design. The outfit seems beyond impractical, but it just resonates bada** for me! Also the rose and haircut. I remember her being something of a secret agent, which is occupied by VIper now, but she was my favorite character from those games, so I want her.

Pullum

If Elena was in the game, Pullum would probably be repetitive. But Elena and Dee Jay were in the same game, and Pullum is as technically different as those two are. I had a lot of fun playing with her in EX. Though even amongst these EX characters, she still seems like a longshot.

Area

She's a cute girl with glasses, rocket skates, and a throwable rocket arm! Nuff said.

Nanase

She has a Goku power pole! I think I played with her the most after Sharon(mainly because I learned all her special moves), and she was awesome. Bring her back!

GUEST CHARACTERS!

Asura

No Caption Provided

If you've played Asura's wrath, then I think you know why. They already did a crossover. Again I love Akuma, but I rather see this guy in his place. He's already got an insane fighting style, just transfer it over.

Valentine

No Caption Provided

The best character from SkullGirls. Valentine is an a** kicking doctor and scientist who uses medical paraphenelia, to decimate and destroy her opponent. She's just insane with a great theme. I can't think of a reason she'd show up, and she is probably the least likely all of characters on this list, but this is a wish list. And I'd give up half of my requests, to see Valentine in Street Fighter V.

Paul Phoenix

Tekken and Street FIghter have already crossed over. Paul seems like the most obvious crossover character in my opinion, and he's my second favorite, so let's do this!

Yoshimitsu

No Caption Provided

My favorite Tekken character. I couldn't say with a straight face that Yoshimitsu(especially this tekken 7 version) fits with the Street Fighter 'aesthetic,' But neither did Necro or Twelve and a lot of others, and those characters aren't nearly as awesome as Yoshimitsu in my opinion. So again, let's do this!

Mega Man/Rock

No Caption Provided

Bad Box Art Mega Man in Street Fighter X Tekken was an okay joke; however, Smash Bros has shown me how fun it is to play with a fully functional Mega Man. He should appear in an official manner in Street Fighter.
