Besides Pac-Man, there's probably no more recognized arcade game than Street Fighter. It started a video game revolution, and introduced the world to what a fighting game could TRULY be. It's enthralling, it's deep, and it's beautiful, and behind the game are its characters, which are some of the greatest and most interesting in all of gaming history.  

But who's the best character in the entire Street Fighter universe? You probably don't have to be a genius to guess number one, but you might be surprised with the characters on the way to the number one spot. So plunk in some quarters (Or put your quarters up by the screen to announce you're next), and get ready to brawl with this top 25 list of the best street fighters. HA-DOU-KEN!!
