How Old Is Each Character From Street Fighter V

Street Fighter V features a large cast of new and returning characters. However, the age of returning characters can be particularly confusing to some players.

This is because they might appear both older and younger than you would expect from previous games.

Whether you’re wondering how Street Fighter’s timeline works or are just curious about your main character’s age, this article should give you the info you need!

Before we start, keep in mind that Street Fighter V doesn’t have an exact timeline. The game takes place a few years after Street Fighter IV but before Street Fighter III.

There are no exact dates given for the game’s timeline. However, it seems to take place in a 3-year timeframe between Street Fighter IV (1994) and Street Fighter III (1997).

For the sake of simplicity, we will use the earliest possible year for Street Fighter V: 1995.

The first Street Fighter took place in 1987 as well. This is important to keep in mind as we can use it to guess the age of the characters. Additionally, most characters don’t get birth years anymore. Capcom simply omits this information so they can use a sliding timeline.

Only characters from the first two games have official birth years. Even then, these years might not be fully canon anymore. Still, they can help us guess the age range of the characters.

Characters without any known age-related information will be omitted from this article. There’s just no way to tell how old they are, such as with Abigail.

In this section, we will list all the characters with known official birth years. These are mostly sourced from the game manuals for Street Fighter I and Street Fighter II.

Again, it’s unknown if Capcom still considers these birth years canon currently. However, they’re the most accurate information we have currently.

Without further ado, this is the list of characters with known ages, from oldest to youngest:

  • Dhalsim: born in 1952, 43 years old.
  • Sagat: born in 1955, 40 years old.
  • Zangief: born in 1956, 39 years old.
  • Guile: born in 1960, 35 years old.
  • E. Honda: born in 1960, 35 years old.
  • Ryu: born in 1964, 31 years old.
  • Ken: born in 1965, 30 years old.
  • Blanka: born in 1966, 29 years old.
  • Vega (Claw): born in 1967, 28 years old.
  • Cody: born in 1967, 28 years old.
  • Balrog (Boxer): born in 1968, 27 years old.
  • Chun-Li: born in 1968, 27 years old.
  • Juri Han: 26-28 years old, though her official profile for Super Street Fighter IV listed her as 25 years old.
  • Karin: born in 197X, 16-25 years old.
  • Sakura Kasugano: 23 years old and is believed to be 8 years younger than Ryu.
  • Lucia: born in 1973, 22 years old.
  • Laura: born in 1974, 21 years old.
  • Cammy White: born in 1974, 21 years old.
  • Akira: late teens as she is a 3rd or 4th year at Sejyun High School.
  • Alex: 17 years old according to character concept art.

That’s all the possible known ages for Street Fighter V characters. Again, these are mostly speculative. Capcom’s use of a sliding timeline makes guessing ages inaccurate and confusing.

Still, it works to let us know how old these characters are meant to be.
