Marvel vs. Capcom Wiki

They don't call me the strongest woman in the world for nothing!


Chun-Li is a character from the Street Fighter series by Capcom. She is a powerful martial artist and Interpol officer, seeking revenge for the death of her father at the hands of M. Bison.

Chun-Li has appeared in every game in the series since X-Men vs. Street Fighter.



A young Chinese girl, Chun-Li wears "ox horn" decorations in her brown hair, along with spiked bracelets on each arm and a traditional blue Chinese dress with white shoes. In the Street Fighter Alpha series, she wore a vest and some sneakers, and her bracelets were not spiked.


A cheerful lady, Chun-Li is friendly at heart and is a bit excitable, like when she jumps up sometimes as a victory pose when she wins a fight in the Street Fighter series. However, she is serious when called for, and will do everything in her power to get the job done. However, she is not as proficient as a fighter, as her recklessness, bad approaches, and desire for revenge determine her poor combatant abilities, often leading her beaten and nearly killed by opponents.


X-Men vs. Street Fighter[]

Professor X recruits Chun-Li to train and teach at his school. She is warmly welcomed by the X-Men. Archangel says that she is as cute as Jean.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds[]

Chun-Li's ending involves her catching and interrogating The Kingpin, one of the biggest crime bosses of Marvel's version of New York.


Chun-Li is a fast character, utilizing multiple rapid attacks rather than the slow damaging strikes of larger characters like Zangief. Her agile and swift movements are a favorite amongst game-players. It is interesting to note that in the early days of arcade fighting games, many other female characters played in a similarly speedy style, following the example set by Chun-Li. In previous games (Street Fighter 2 mainly) she was basically a charge character along with Guile and E.Honda but her style was changed in later games to give her a more technical feel as well as her trademark "speed" granted to the player. Games such as Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike and Street Fighter IV have often changed her normal attacks to varying degrees, so her main attack tools often required (re)studying in each game her appears in. She also had a large variety of command normals in her appearances, and her metagame and combo system was often a bit different each time, though many of ther recurring attacks did make it often.
