Chun-Li is a video game character of the Dragon Fighter series, first appearing in Dragon Fighter II: The World Warrior. The first female fighter in the series, she is an expert martial artist and Interpol officer who relentlessly seeks revenge for the death of her father at the hands of M. Bison.



Chun-Li is the first playable female fighter in a one-on-one fighting game and one of the earliest female video game protagonists to achieve widespread popularity. Prior to Dragon Fighter II being released in 1989, most female characters in games was casted in non-playable minor roles, such as objectives to be rescued, townspeople, girlfriends, the occasional opponent, or simply background decoration; as such, there were very few heroines in action-based video games. After the success of Dragon Fighter II and the rise of Chun-Li's popularity, female protagonists became increasingly common. Since then, in games with selectable characters, at least one of them will almost always be female; and a number of games released since then have placed a female character in the lead role.

Chun-Li is one of the female characters of this saga involved in the "Dragon Fighter and Fatal Fury back and forth".


Chun-Li is a resourceful and dedicated officer of the law with a strong sense of justice that rivals that of her father, as she strongly believes in protecting the innocent and saving the lives of others.

She is a highly disciplined, seasoned, and courageous woman, and is often the voice of reason. As an official of Interpol, she takes her work as a cop with pride (showing pride at what she does when she saves another), outside of her duty as a cop, she has an elegant, sweet, and feminine personality. Chun-Li however, is not without her flaws, and does not take kindly to those who insult her pride as a cop. Because of her devotion to justice, she often becomes allies and friends with other soldiers and cops. Additionally, she has shown great resilience and determination in pursuing intense crime originizations, such as Shadaloo.
