Chun Li Vs. Vega clip from Streetfighter II Anime

A character created for Capcom’s Street Fighter series. Born in China on March 1st 1968 Chun-Li (beautiful spring) has been training since she was five years old. Generally considered to be the first female fighting character in videogames, she first got interested in the martial arts when she became a fan of Bruce Lee. Chun-Li's style was originally listed as Wushu style Kung Fu, but recently Capcom decided to call it Tai Chi instead.

Following the death of her father she discovers that he has been killed by a crime lord called Bison (head of Shadoloo an international crime syndicate). She joins ICPO (Interpol) to get the resources to find and bring him to justice. She challenges Bison, but the villain makes quick work of her.

Though deeply shocked by her defeat, she later joins Charlie in SFA3 to destroy Bison. She was invited to the second tournament and entered to destroy Bison for good. She may have been the one who actually won it’s not clear. Her actions following this contest appear to show that she indeed had made peace with her vendetta.

She continued her work as a police officer, and retired from mainstream street fighting to teach young children martial arts after taking down Shadoloo for good, she later adopted a young girl.

In the live-action Street Fighter Movie Chun-Li was given the last name Zang/Xiang, but Capcom hasn't officially recognized it.

So far vega and chun-li's fight was the best scene in the street fighter animation. i love the way she bounce at the wall and kicked vega's maniac ass.. lolz..

Serious lol @ calling Vega, Balrog. Balrog is a completely different character!
Gotta love those panty shots though.

It's funny... because isn't Chun Li supposed to be an accomplished martial artist? The anime at the beginning only portrayed her as a "helpless girl"... something the writers of the script sure love, I reckon.

@Dante20XX:

Vega ist called Balrog in the japanese versions of Street Fighter while M. Bison is called Vega an Balrog called M. Bison. This was changed for the rest of the world because Capcom thought Bison might sound too much like (Mike) Tyson.

Watch Vega's playthru on Streetfighter 4 on youtube; there's actually a reference to this scene where Chun Li says to him, "I thought you were dead!" and he replies "Maybe I'm a ghost." Well, if you knocked a guy out of a window, you could make the assumption that he bought the farm. XD

Btw, I always supported the name change; Vega suits the Spanish Ninja a lot more better than it does the big boss; and Balrog is best for the boxer.
