These ten World Warriors probably won't be making it into Super Street Fighter IV, and we should be thankful for it.
In case you're not familiar with it, Something Awful's WTF, D&D!? series is a hilarious look at some of the, shall we say, more unintentionally amusing Pen-and-Paper RPG sourcebooks we've seen over the years. Last week, the writers took a look at Street Fighter: Contenders, a companion to the Street Fighter pen-and-paper RPG that listed some original characters as alternatives to Ken, Ryu, and Chun-Li.
I don't know whether or not the ten characters featured here are all of the ones in the book (I suspect not) or if these are just the worst of the lot, but one thing remains certain: These characters are stunningly and hilariously awful.
I can't decide which of them is the worst of the worst. Is it the Latino fighter who joined the Army while "looking for ways to make his already gorgeous legs even more attractive"? Is it the 13-year-old girl in the Spanish ninja's body? Is it John McCain with two extra robot arms, the naked interplanetary wrestler, or is it Eric the Red So Fine - possibly the worst name for a fictional character in the entire history of fictional characters.
There may still be five unannounced contenders waiting in the wings for Super Street Fighter IV, but at least we can take comfort in the fact that none of these characters will be showing up - ever again.
