Game: Street Fighter 2 (1991)
He's not as treacherous as M. Bison. He's not nearly as suave as Vega. But Balrog's got a punch that drains health with a quickness. What made this fighter so lethal was the combination of speed and power. Once his rushing cross connected, the pugilist would unleash uppercuts, hooks and jabs in a blinding fury. Balrog didn't give even the most skilled of fighters a chance to counter with a Sonic Boom or Yoga Fire. Plus he had showgirls cheering him on.
