Chun Li Profile
Chun-Li is a video game character produced by Capcom. First introduced in Street Fighter II: The World Warrior, she has since appeared as a player character in each subsequent game.
An undercover Interpol agent, Chun-Li enters Street Fighter II 's fighting tournament as a way of getting to its founder, M. Bison. She seeks to avenge her father, who was murdered while investigating Bison's crime syndicate, Shadaloo. Her signature move is the Hyakuretsu Kyaku, commonly known as the Lightning Kick, which involves repeatedly kicking her opponent from a tilted standing position. Chun-Li is notable for being the first female playable character in a fighting game, and has acquired the nickname "First Lady of Fighting Games" among enthusiasts.
Chun-Li made her debut in the original version of Street Fighter II as one of the game's eight playable characters and the sole female character in the game (before the addition of later characters such as Cammy, Rose and Sakura).Chun-Li's backstory centers on her quest to avenge her father's death, an undercover police agent who disappeared while investigating M. Bison's organization. In her ending, she fulfills her revenge and decides to return to her life as an ordinary girl. In Super Street Fighter II, the player is given the option to make Chun-Li return to ordinary life or continue her work as a police officer.
Chun-Li is brought back in Street Fighter Alpha: Warriors' Dreams, which is set prior to the events of the Street Fighter II. Chun-Li is depicted as an undercover ICPO agent who is after M. Bison and his drug cartel. In the first Alpha game Chun-Li is dressed in a Chinese acrobatics outfit, although the two sequels: Alpha 2 and Alpha 3 feature Chun-Li's original outfit from SFII as an alternate version of the character with alternate special abilities and super combos.
She appears as a playable character in Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike, the third iteration of Street Fighter III, as one of five new playable characters that were added, making her one of the few Street Fighter characters to appear in all major sub-series. Set years after the Street Fighter II, Chun-Li has retired from street fighting to teach martial arts to young children, but is forced to return to law enforcement after one of her students is abducted by Urien.
Chun-Li appears in Street Fighter IV as one of the returning World Warriors from SFII (which was subtitled World Warriors) with her brand new Ultra Move, H?senka (???, Phoenix's Fan Petals?). Her in-game narrative shows she is at a current crossroads in her life and her eventual return to both street fighting and law enforcement.
In the Street Fighter EX sub-series, Chun-Li's story is similar to that of Street Fighter II, in which she is a police officer investigating Shadaloo in search of her missing father, instead of avenging his death.
Chun-Li has made appearances in several other Capcom-produced fighting games including all of the Marvel vs. Capcom, where she was made an honorary member of the X-Men, and Capcom vs. SNK crossovers. She also appears in the puzzle game Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo and its sequel, Pocket Fighter. She is also a playable character in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All Stars, representing her debut game Street Fighter II. She also makes a cameo in Mega Man 9 as a television news reporter during a scene where Mega Man and Dr.Light were watching a breaking-news report, and in Final Fight 2, where she can be found eating ramen in the first stage. She also has a cameo appearance in Breath of Fire where you can see her practicing her lightning kicks in the thief's house in the town of Bleak if you ask him to perform a magic trick and respond to his questions correctly. Chun-Li also appears in the Tactical RPG game Namco × Capcom, where she will team up with Cammy White as you progress. She is found in almost any Capcom fighting game, one exception was the first Street Fighter III and its first revision, 2nd Impact, until she was finally added to the third and last revision Street Fighter III 3rd Strike. Chun-Li also appears in the Pachislot game 'Chun-Li Ni Makase China!'; the first game CAPCOM has produced that features Chun-Li in the starring role.
She also appears as an unlockable costume swap in Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams for Ohatsu, though purely cosmetic. Incidentally a remix of her stage soundtrack can be heard if the player wears this Secret Costume and plays as Ohatsu in the aforementioned game's Dark Realm minigame.
