Capcom's big fighting game is here, but there's still important questions that need to be answered. 

Foremost among these questions: Who are the hottest characters in Street Fighter 6? It's not as obvious as it might seem at first glance. Thanks to the rendering capabilities of the RE Engine on modern gaming hardware and the utterly-unleashed artistic direction of the game, there's a plethora of hot characters here. More hot than not, really. 

Having spoken to a range of people — from Street Fighter fans to those who have never played it, with a wide range of tastes — I've come up with the only objectively correct list. So, here is it: Street Fighter 6 characters ranked by well as other aspects like their personalities. 


Street Fighter 6 Deluxe Edition

A big part of fighting games is all the characters that come post-launch, which means even more opportunities for Capcom to unleash incredibly attractive characters on the audience, especially if there are certain returning characters from games past.

Below, I've gathered some quick facts and details that back up the ranking, starting at the lowest tier characters and working up. I've also got details such as their ages, though take these with a grain of salt: Street Fighter has always played fast and loose with aging. Naturally, this list will be updated over time as the cast grows via post-launch DLC. 

An important note: If there's a character you don't see on this list, that's for a darn good reason. 


The big green guy. (Image credit: Capcom)
  • Height: 6'4"
  • Weight: 216 lbs
  • Age: Unknown
  • Likes: Samantha, Blanka-chan dolls
  • Dislikes: Army ants
  • Tier ranking: D-tier

He's a nice guy, but...c'mon. Look at him. I understand that "ugly cute" is a thing, but from all the artists I follow and people I've talked to, Blanka's name never comes up. He's at the bottom of the bottom tier.


Well, at least he's flexible? (Image credit: Capcom)
  • Height: 5'9"
  • Weight: 106 lbs
  • Age: >60 years
  • Likes: Meditating
  • Dislikes: Distractions, harming others
  • Tier ranking: D-tier

I understand that stretching limbs has its appeal, but time has not been kind to Dhalsim's physical form. And he's probably okay with that, being focused on inner harmony and peace! Still, it earns him an extremely low-ranking spot.

E. Honda

He's got a healthy appetite, for sure. (Image credit: Capcom)
  • Height: 6'1"
  • Weight: 302 lbs
  • Age: Late 30s/Early 40s
  • Likes: Baths
  • Dislikes: Indecisiveness
  • Tier ranking: C-Tier

Being clean and having a great appetite are good pluses, but the sumo vibe and lifestyle is going to be hugely off-putting. Not because he's big (just check Twitter when the design for Thor in God of War Ragnarok was shown) but the angry face paint just isn't doing it for many people. 


A military man. (Image credit: Capcom)
  • Height: 6'0"
  • Weight: 218 lbs
  • Age: 63
  • Likes: Watching sports, dog walking
  • Dislikes: Secretive people, layabouts
  • Tier ranking: C-tier

With fantastic arms and a no-nonsense yet still wholesome personality, Guile makes a great first impression. Unfortunately, he loses some ground with that haircut. I know it's iconic, but that's not because it looks good dude. 


A certified Gamer. (Image credit: Capcom)
  • Height: 6'1"
  • Weight: 198 lbs
  • Age: Late 20s
  • Likes: Travelling, PC games, wacky T-shirts
  • Dislikes: Horror games
  • Tier ranking: C-tier

Luke is a Capital-G Gamer (derogatory) that hates horror games, and he's a mercenary, meaning he's not making a great impression from the start. He's handsome enough, but the childish haircut and attitude drag him down massively here. Maybe check in 10 years to see if he's grown up yet. 

Dee Jay

Feeling the beat. (Image credit: Capcom)
  • Height: 6'0"
  • Weight: 203 lbs
  • Age: 57
  • Likes: Singing, dancing, hollering
  • Dislikes: Silence
  • Tier ranking: B-tier

As a professional musician and dancer, Dee Jay is certainly going to stay on beat. He represents everything there is to love about the laid-back party lifestyle, so he definitely knows how to have a good time.


Definitely not sober. (Image credit: Capcom)
  • Height: 5'9"
  • Weight: 170 lbs
  • Age: Mid-20s
  • Likes: Yun, Yang, dancing, his grandmother
  • Dislikes: Getting lectured, arrogance
  • Tier ranking: B-tier

An athletic dancer, Jamie makes a great debut into the roster here, as there's no denying how in shape he is. Anyone that can chug alcohol and stay that quick on their feet has got the right moves. That said, his attitude may be a bit off-putting for some. 


A distinguished old gent. (Image credit: Capcom)
  • Height: 6'3"
  • Weight: 214 lbs
  • Age: Late 60s/early 70s
  • Likes: Chess puzzles, cleaning, local cuisines
  • Dislikes: Stains on his clothes, sleep
  • Tier ranking: B-tier

For all of you that tend to get thirsty over older gentlemen, here you go. This is your icon. The cane, the walk, the beard, the fashion sense, all of it. You're set from now on. He's also evidently fond of cats!


Excitable and energetic. (Image credit: Capcom)
  • Height: 5'6"
  • Weight: 134 lbs
  • Age: Early 20s
  • Likes: 80's music, sneakers, large numbers
  • Dislikes: Tear-jerker movies
  • Tier ranking: B-tier

For the younger audience, Kimberly is definitely relatable and attractive. She's brainy (having graduated college a bit early) and has a range of interests to the point you know she can hold a conversation.


Maybe a haircut? (Image credit: Capcom)
  • Height: 5'9"
  • Weight: 183 lbs
  • Age: 58
  • Likes: Family
  • Dislikes: Pointless meetings
  • Tier ranking: B-tier

Ken is having a bit of a rough time. Framed for criminal behavior and divorced, he's not really living his best life. He's still got the rugged charm to pull you in, but a haircut and some personal grooming wouldn't hurt. Plus, he invested in cryptocurrency, and we have to ding him a bit for that.


She's beauty and she's grace. (Image credit: Capcom)
  • Height: 5'9"
  • Weight: 129 lbs
  • Age: Early 30s
  • Likes: The color gold, cosmetics, her family
  • Dislikes: Crowds, chatterboxes
  • Tier ranking: B-tier

Manon has the diva catwalk strut down, which is instantly going to put her on many people's admiring radar. If you're not into the whole fashionista personality, then you probably won't find her that compelling.


"Wild" is an understatement. (Image credit: Capcom)
  • Height: 5'5"
  • Weight: 126 lbs
  • Age: 38
  • Likes: Motorcycles, spiders
  • Dislikes: Buzzkills, rules
  • Tier ranking: A-tier

There's two camps of people interested in Juri. The first group is for anyone that's into crazy girls that are probably not going to have a healthy relationship with you, and we've all been there. The second group? You know who you are. 


Big woman is here. (Image credit: Capcom)

This picture should be shown next to "muscle mommy" in the dictionary. The tallest woman in the franchise, with enough power to break you in half. She's also confirmed to be bisexual, so men and women alike can file in to have their spines snapped.

  • Height: 6'8"
  • Weight: 269 lbs
  • Age: Mid-30s
  • Likes: Worthy opponents, ossobuco, fine arts
  • Dislikes: Heights
  • Tier ranking: A-tier


A mountain of muscle. (Image credit: Capcom)
  • Height: 7'0
  • Age: 67
  • Likes: Wrestling, Cossack dancing
  • Dislikes: Projectiles
  • Tier ranking: A-tier

There's going to be a small minority of people who think this is still too low, and I respect their opinions. The ridiculously over-the-top physique just speaks for itself here. That said, he might be a bit too focused on improving himself and his students to make time for anyone else in his life right now.


The Killer Bee herself. (Image credit: Capcom)
  • Height: 5'5"
  • Weight: 134 lbs
  • Age: 49
  • Likes: Cats
  • Dislikes: Everything (if she's grumpy)
  • Tier ranking: S-tier

We're at the cream of the crop now, and there's no denying that Cammy is one of the reigning champs for good reason. It doesn't matter if you prefer her old outfit or her new one, she's one of the hottest here. Plus, she makes sure you won't have to pay for a chiropractor!


The undisputed first lady. (Image credit: Capcom)
  • Height: 5'7"
  • Weight: Secret
  • Age: 55
  • Likes: Days off, shopping with Li-Fen
  • Dislikes: Crime, indecisiveness 
  • Tier ranking: S-tier

I mean, come on. Chun-Li is an icon, and rightfully so. All these years later, she's still got the best thighs in fighting games. She's the Classic Coke of characters, and that's not going to change any time soon. Also, she inspired this amazing tweet from the sadly now-defunct Jiggle Physics podcast:


The OG. (Image credit: Capcom)
  • Height: 5'9"
  • Weight: 187 lbs
  • Age: 58
  • Likes: Martial arts
  • Dislikes: Spiders
  • Tier ranking: S-tier

Street Fighter 6 was initially announced with a look at Ryu's muscles, which should make his placement in this list fairly understandable, regardless of preference. He's never looked better and earns his place alongside Chun-Li and Cammy as the best of the best.

That's everyone! Here's the final tier listing that we've got:

Just have fun!

It really doesn't matter what your preferences are, Capcom has made sure there's something for everyone in Street Fighter 6. With more characters coming post-launch, that'll only improve over time.

In our Street Fighter 6 review, writer Miles Dompier shared that " Capcom continues to demonstrate precisely how a team can triumphantly transform established IP. The blood, sweat, and style pouring from nearly every moment in Street Fighter 6 will delight newcomers and veterans alike."
