    Short summary describing this character.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    Sakura is a native Japan teenager who idolizes the champion of the first world tournament Ryu. After seeing how great of a fighter Ryu had been in the world tournament, she pursued him in attempt to find him and ask to be trained by the greatest. When she had finally encountered Ryu she asked him to train her to become a more stronger and experienced fighter. Ryu declined Sakura's offer after stating that he still had more to learn about himself before he could learn how to train another and parted ways with the young aspiring fighter. During the Rival Schools saga, Sakura realized how important it was to her protecting the things she cared about. Once again the young fighter began her quest on finding Ryu and along the way she met the likes of Dan and Blanka. While on her quest with Dan and Blanka, Sakura encountered rival and best friend of Ryu, Ken.

    After ditching Dan, Sakura gave a heart-warming speech about how much she loved fighting and training to better herself and inspired Ken. Ken and Sakura began traveling to find Ryu which was later revealed to be in Thailand under Bison's mind control, where Sagat came into action and took on Ryu as Ken and Sakura faced off against Bison. A mixture of Sagat's pleas and Sakura's injuries finally awoke the possessed Ryu where he fended off Bison, forcing him to back down. Ryu told Sakura a second time that he was not yet ready to be taken on as her mentor and once again walked off into the sunset.
