I’ve been wondering this, does Street Fighter hold the No. 1 and 2 most iconic fighters? Is it Chun Li? Guile? Ken? The demon himself, Akuma?

Or, does No. 2 fall to a different game and/or company. Is it Terry? Or Kyo?

The popularity of Mortal Kombat can’t be denied. Perhaps the true answer is Sub-Zero? Scorpion?

Tekken is still a thing, and Heihachi Mishima would like to have a word with you. Or Jin Kazama?

Perhaps it’s someone I’m not thinking of?

I’m tired of Ryu putting a quick end to these discussions, so let’s take him out of it. Who’s the second most iconic?

Probably Chun-Li or Ken.

Edit: Yeah actually Scorpion. Not sure how I ignored that.

I think answers will be different depending on where you’re from, but for me growing up in America, it would be either Chun Li or Scorpion.

NGL, I read the title as "if we take Ryu out, who is the next most iconic street fighter character" and was baffled when I saw Scorpion and Sub Zero on the poll

Probably Scorpion, although Jin Kazama was the first to come to mind because I'm a big Tekken fan.

I'd wager most of the SFII cast are more recognized than just about anyone on this list outside of Scorpion.

Chun-Li then Ken then Scorpion then Guile.

For me personally I can’t really picture how Scorpion looks just be reading his name. Something that’s easy for Chun Li.

Guess it’s regional as well?

Definitely not Kyo or Terry. Your other options are all solid though. I think something like

Chun Li = Ken > Scorpion = Sub Zero > Akuma

Honestly I think even Akuma doesn’t score that high next to most of the SFII roster

This meant to be an edit and not a reply, woop

Came here to say Mario and see if anyone else would say the same. Was not disappointed.

In a strictly fighting games character sense however I'd go with Scorpion.
