Complex Says: Chun-Li set the standard for female fighters. She brought a look that was elegant, sexy, and very tough. We don’t know how she did it. The other girls that bit her look showed plenty of leg, but none of them could top our girl Chun-Li. In the Street Fighter Alpha series, Chun-Li took a different approach by wearing a full body suit. Not many characters caught on to that, but we respect Chun-Li’s effort.
