Blanka from Brazil

Blanka who represents Brazil is one of the eight playable characters from Street Fighter II, the very popular fighting game which changed the whole genre and inspired a ton of other games and character designs.

The story of Blanka is hilarious sometimes, like that he earned his power from animals like eels and monkeys, but his fighting style is simply awesome, and his visual design super fitting for a man fighting like a beast.

Blanka has been in almost all Street Fighter games, and in the most cross overs like Capcom vs SNK or Street Fighter X Tekken, but he never made it into the Marvel vs Capcom series or played a prominent role in any of the games yet.

The currently last game with Blanka is Street Fighter 6 (2023) where Blanka is one of the base roster characters. In the previous game, Street Fighter V (2026) he joined the roster as a DLC character in 2018.

Take a special look at the two Blanka artworks made for our Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Tribute in 2012 as well at the official artworks of Blanka!
