Zangief Vs. Kuma
See those scars on Zangief? Those are training scars from fighting and wrestling bears in his home country, Russia. Dude’s strong enough to take on bears, but Kuma here is no ordinary bear. He’s a bear with martial arts training, making him a hundred times deadlier than, well, a regular bear.
Ryu Vs. Kazuya Mishima
Ryu’s the poster boy of Street Fighter, while Kazuya was the original protagonist of the first Tekken game. They’re the most recognizable (and most popular) faces of their respective franchises, so this is sure to be a battle of pride. Pushed to the extreme, they might just release their inner dark sides, Evil Ryu and Devil Kazuya.
Akuma Vs. Ogre
Akuma is a power-hungry bastard, driven by an unearthly greed to become the most powerful being on earth. The same can be said for the monstrous Ogre who’ll stop at nothing to destroy anyone standing in front of his path. They won’t be hanging out together at bars anytime soon.††
Guile Vs. Paul Phoenix
A real hair-raiser
This is about as evenly-matched as two fighters in this game can get. Their biceps and chest look equally ripped. They both sport mean scowls. Their fighting styles are reckless (see: Guile’s back-flipping flash kick and Paul’s super wind-up megapunch). And best of all, they sport Vanilla Ice flat-tops. Loser gets his head shaved.
Chun-Li Vs. Xiao Yu
Once upon a time in China
Ask us to give you a female Chinese name, and chances are it would either be Mulan or Chun-Li. Chun-Li’s awesome. She's a true icon and a legend, making us pause a game just to see digital panties. Would the much younger Xiao Yu, with all her fancy crane-like fighting moves, ever be able to top that?††
Balrog Vs. Steve Fox
Styles make fights in boxing. Balrog’s the aggressive, in-your-face, no-nonsense Mike Tyson type. Steve, on the other hand, is a pretty boy British boxer who likes to weave around and counter at the ideal moment. We’ve yet to receive Vegas odds for this mega-fight.
Poison Vs. Nina Williams
Hot girls fighting is always a spectacle to see, and these two represent the sauciest for both franchises. They make high kicks even more awesome to watch. Just a little word of warning: while Poison looks extremely hot, she’s also officially a post-op transsexual.
Poison first appeared as a female thug in the seminal 90s arcade game Final Fight. Capcom changed her gender, fearing that North American feminists groups might make a fuss out of seeing a woman being beaten up by a male protagonist.
Hugo Vs. Bob Richards
The big lumbering dudes. What fighting game is complete without them? Hugo is an Andre the Giant clone, who boasts a screen-filling presence. Bob looks like a truck driver who’s actually pretty nimble for his size. Count on it that they won’t take each other lightly.
M.Bison Vs. Heihachi
These dudes fight like a boss. M. Bison with his fancy psychic techniques and megalomaniac tendencies, and Heihachi with his old-man grit, and constant teeth-grinding ruthlessness . One world is not enough for two baddies, both of whom have delusions of world domination. One of them will have to go.
Dhalsim Vs. Yoshimitsu
One’s known for having the ability to stretch his arms like Mr. Fantastic, and one’s a crazy samurai who has one move where he intentionally pierces through his own body with a sword. Hard to say who’d win, but this one’s sure to be a circus of a fight!
