Character Actions and Interactions

Character Actions and Interactions - All Street Fighter 6 Easter Eggs

These are some actions and animations done by some of the playable characters, including the customized character, that only eagle-eyed fans might notice.

NPCs react to gestures

While in World Tour, you can make gestures near some NPCs, and they will react according to the gesture that you make.

Character animations during a fight

Some playable characters have different animations depending on certain variables during a fight, such as:

  • Luke has two different kinds of perfect win poses depending on his drive gauge level.
  • Kimberly can change the BGM of a match when she activates her level 3 super. This theme is only the instrumental version of her theme, but if two Kimberlys use both of their level 3 supers, the theme changes into its with vocals version.
  • Jamie has different kinds of taunts depending on his drink level, starting from sober and snappy, to drunk and teetering.

Chun-Li’s perfect win pose is a callback to her old victory pose. On the other hand, Juri’s perfect win pose is a mocking version of this exact pose.

Final Fight Characters

Final Fight Characters - All Street Fighter 6 Easter Eggs

Familiar Final Fight characters have once again shown up as NPCs that can be challenged to a fight or appear just as cameos in the game.

  • Carlos Miyamoto comes back as an NPC that you can fight against. He uses his Sword Attack as his special attack.
  • Thrasher Damnd comes back in a cutscene and does his signature whistle to call his goons to fight you. His messenger profile pic is the same one shown in the Final Fight intro where he appears on a TV.

  • Several other side characters appear once again such as Mad Gear Elissa, Roxy, the Andore Family, G.Oriber, and Two.P.

His name was changed to Katana in the western release of the game, but the clerk managing the truck stall is named Gomorrah, a similar biblical reference referring to the cities Sodom and Gomorrah.
