The Street Fighter VI Story Thread: Shadaloo Died so Luke Could Live!

Recommended Posts

I know Street Fighter lore isn't for everyone. It tends to annoy people only concerned with game play. So discuss the SF story, characters, and narrative here.

Did Cammy give Chun-Li and Juri the treatment yet or are they still playing coy?



Serious note:

So many new characters have shown up sense after the release of the first batch of DLC characters. I wonder how all of the characters are going to fit into the next story mode? As if to say, what roles will the play? I hope there is not anywhere near as much jobbing as in the S1 story.

Since the usual lore heavy weights are stuck in Discord....Discourse. I guess I'll have to drop my humor shtick and get serious for a moment. If we get a second story mode. What direction do you think it should take. I'll start off.


I think the main focus should be on Ed's formation of Neo Shadaloo. I think it should be more of an Anti-Hero type of organization. Ed could be trying to recruit and give safe haven to victims of Shadoloo/S.I.N. experimentation. This could provide an interesting narrative and give a reason for Capcom to reuse the doll assets from A Shadow Falls.


Some of the dolls would stay with Cammy and others would fall in line with Ed. He could have an "any means necessary" method to his tactics. This would give him good intentions but put him at odds with hero characters like Cammy and Chun Li. You could have some of the dolls that didn't get a move set fall in league with Ed. This would allow players to fight against Noembelu, Xiayu, and Jianyu. Decapre, Juli, and Juni could fall in league with Cammy.


The Illuminati would be in the background. Gill, Urien, and Kolin would be using the power vacuum created by the fall of Shadaloo to their advantage. While the "hero's" are focused on Neo Shadaloo. The Illuminati would be setting the table for the events of SF3 to take place. Maybe one of the characters from the main story line would join their ranks. Decapre could be tempted by the possibility of having her scars healed. Or Ed could convinced to fall in line with Gills doctrine and roll Neo Shadoloo in their ranks.


Just spit balling ideas off the top of my head. Anyone else have thoughts on the matter.

All I can say is that there are some positive aspects of the story but it is absolutely laughable in many other areas (not that such a description is that much different from most other fighting games, depending on ones point of view). However, it still leaves us with so much to discuss as to what is actually going on between the characters as well as what can take place at a later date (considering that Capcom hires some decent writers).




I still want Cammy to give Chun-Li the real business.

I want a naked Tori Hughes waiting for me when I get home from work. We can't always get what we want.

Nice to see this thread taking off too, I've been too busy to post here or on SRK lately but it's nice to have a second place to talk story-related business.

She can't. Considering all that happens during a Shadow's fall, she is clearly Juri's sex doll.


Cammy is no one's doll! >:(




She and Juri are in a fully consensual and mutually enjoyed relationship based on mutual respect and angsty angry lesbian sex.

He's a giant man who owns a remodeled ship
and appears at the ports heading a bunch of thugs.
It looks like he belongs to a suspicious organisation
on behalf of which he smuggles weapons.

He possesses astounding physical abilities,
and often jumps very high and comes from above with a Hip Attack.





A gangster with a pigtail and a rosary.

He owns a Chinese restaurant...
But what's his true face?

A fearless man with powerful punches.
He hides the fact he’s a serial killer
while operating for a certain organisation.


It seems he’s somehow linked to Dean¹…



¹ Stray killed Dean’s family, so in FF3’ story Dean avenged them by killing him.

So he is the one that killed Dean's family and he's a serial killer. Seems like one of the most irredeemable characters in the SF universe.

Indeed, along with the likes of Bison and Urien.

(For some reason, the forum doesn't seem to show Stray's jpg. I've tried to edit my post two times, and the preview is correct but the final post shows only part of the URL... :expressionless:)

Whatever you did fixed it. I can see the picture now.

A sinister masked man
who carries a baseball bat.
He approaches you while muttering something… Scary!

What does it mean that he hates sports
when he wears a baseball attire?
He’s a member of a gang that operates in the city.
He approaches you from behind your back and maims you mercilessly with his bat.
It’s rumored that under his mask he’s actually a very handsome man.




So they started with FF3 goons. Well, still 11 to go: May, Fritz, Joe, Arby, Fat Jack, Dirk, Rick, Billy, Ray, Johnny… and G.
A curious coincidence…

A strong giant.
He frequently changes jobs, using his strength
to seek employment as a bodyguard for various organisations.




Name: Arby
Height: 191cm
Weight: 179kg
Blood Type: 0
Birthday: March, 21
Country of Origin: USA
Favorite things: Eating, Sleeping
Dislikes: Horror Movies


He’s interested in sumō wrestling since he saw it in tv once,
and learned as an autodidact how to do harite¹ and buchikamashi².
He’s unexpectedly helpful with people,
and often shoulders his friends’ debts.
It seems he doesn’t actually work for the money;
instead, he’s only searching for a place to show off his strength.




¹ The standard sumō palm strike. It’s not technically a slap (see Honda’s Hyakuretsu harite often translated as “100 hand slap”).
² Sumō’s name for the head/shoulder block, often done at the start of a match. In Japanese pro wrestling is used as an alternative name for the regular Shoulder Block if executed by a former sumō wrestler like Takeshi Rikiō.

@Miðgarðsorm I noticed you changed your avatar, any significance?

As my previous avatar was in memory of the late writer Terry Pratchett (it was Tiffany, my favourite amongst his characters), this is Anne Shirley from Akage no An (Anne of Green Gables), in memory of its director Isao Takahata recently passed away. That series is a masterpiece, even better than the original novel.

I spoke about him in the other forum.

A psyched-up man with eye makeup and a mohawk.
He’s weak in a fight, but nevertheless likes to be noisy and cause havoc.
He’s the sort of man that likes the means more than the results.

He moved to US from UK just two years ago.
He came to live with an acquaintance, befriended during a punk band concert.
Eventually, while he and his friend were fooling around,
they ended up in a gang.


It seems he knows unexpectedly well
romantic literature and theatre.

He hits with iron claws!
Special attention must be paid to his rushing attacks.
Once he’s knocked out, he lies on the ground for a while;
because of this, there’s a rumor he regenerates his health bar during that. (He actually doesn’t do it in game)




Name: Rick
Height: 198cm

Dislikes: Meat


He became a gang member after being invited
by a man whom he got to know in prison.
He has the bad habit
of reducing in pieces the street signboards with his claws.


Hey, kids, it’s property damage! Don’t imitate him!

Mr. G loves himself.
He has no relation at all with that other "G".
As a good delinquent, every day he works hard to his evil deeds.
His slight clumsiness makes him somehow attractive.




Name: G
Height: 172cm
Weight: 77kg
Blood Type: A
Birthday: April, 2
Country of Origin: USA
Favorite things: His Hairstyle
Dislikes: Money Management


His favourite attack is the Kenka Kick¹!
The "G" stands for "Great".
Because he cannot maintain his hairstyle during rainy days, he usually doesn't work when it rains.
He's very generous and always treats his friends to dinner,
but as he doesn't pay attention to his money he usually ends up skint in no time.



¹ Standard name for the running frontal kick, aka "Running Big Boot". Its original name was Yakuza kick (because it was used by Masahiro Chōno, who played the part of a yakuza man), but, because of the Japanese tv censorship, it was changed into the neutered kenka, "brawl".

This man loves his Stielhandgranaten beyond all else.
The warm feeling of their wooden stalks

His family-owned business went bankrupt
and just when he found himself in financial crisis,
he discovered in the warehouse of his late father
a large mass of hand grenades.
He used them to assault a bank,
then he joined a criminal group.
Now he’s supporting a criminal organisation
for which he smuggles weapons.

They have to start somewhere. Honestly I find the work they are doing at CFN to be encouraging. The character profile are a nice way to build out the Street Fighter world. The side stories do a good job of giving insight into the characters personalities. What Capcom needs to do is make the lore from CFN accessible in SFV. It's something they've already created and it increases the casual appeal. Despite what pros and EH commenters think, they are a lot of people that like Street Fighter for the lore.
