Investigating the events behind her fathers whereabouts led to news of a massive evil organization called Shadaloo, she sets out on a quest chasing the mastermind of the group; Vega. The attractive Chinese girl is dressed in formal Chinese attire with a hairstyle consisting of two buns, who has trained her legs to be thick and strong. As quickly as she emerged she became adored worldwide, and from then on she became the representing face of females in Capcom games. After defeating Vega and getting revenge for her father, she just wants to return to life as an “ordinary girl”…
Basically the same as “SF2” but with some new facts made clear. Working harder advancing her investigation, while simultaneously training in martial arts, she has added a strict muscle training regiment to endure the investigation, partly because of her diet. Originally using Street Fighting as a way to get intel and info on her investigations, she has since grown a certain fondness to the atmosphere of fighting.
In her ending, she gets to choose whether she returns to fight crime or live her life as an ordinary girl. In either case however, her attitude does not change even while fighting off thugs trying to beat her. Now added to her “SF2X” ending is an image, where it’s now possible to witness her portraying the life of a “normal girl”.
Female ICPO Rookie detective challenging Shadaloo alone to find clues for her missing father. Due to the fact the game is set before “SF2” era there is a change in appearance to make her look more “athletic”. Her “Im Sorry” chop (Gomen ne) first appears in this game, the dialogue better reflecting her younger naive appearance than previously featured. In her ending, she hunts down Vega, which results in his escape, and due to her unpreparedness she was left weakened. Although she has followed her fathers where a bouts throughout the series, this is the first game where Vega is clearly linked to the disappearance of her father.
After witnessing a Peking Opera at the age of 5 she saw an opportunity and started learning the martial arts, devising her own kicking techniques. After Vega flees in her ending, she cries for the first time after being appointed lead investigator of Shadaloo. By he way, Chun Li is now able to use the attire she wore during “SF2” series.
ICPO’s special investigator of Shadaloo, and self proclaimed “ICOP outcast”. She had been promoted to lead investigator of Shadaloo over suspecting them of distributing and trafficking narcotics and arms, but the upper echelon of the ICPO is powerless at the hands of Shadaloo. Because she is no longer able to rely on her superiors she heads out on a search for Nash; a military officer dealing with circumstances similar to her own, and together they both head out into enemy territory. In her ending she uses Shadaloo’s new weapon against Vega himself, vowing to fight against evil in the future. In this game she was not concerned in dealing with tracking down the where a bouts of her father, and she never interrogated Vega on the matter during her ending.
She makes a cameo appearance in the background. She’s visiting Japan using the hot springs in Ken’s stage. Out of the three people who are in the upper part near the sign that says hot water, she is the first woman on the left-hand side.
The first time participating in “SF3” series. Retiring from being a detective she has now opened up a Kung Fu class where she teaches children during the day, although the sudden disappearance of a female student prompts her to start fighting again to search for clues. Her endeavors have reached the ears of Urien, who knows her famous feats of annihilating Shadaloo, and her strength as the proprietor of the “legs of legend”. She should be reaching 30 soon, her victory poses have not neglected to earnestly poke fun at her age, but proud of her legs increasing in fat…not, the muscular beauty of her legs have become even more refined it seems.
