Ken Masters Street Fighter II Original Artwork from 1990 Ken Masters Street Fighter Alpha Art Ken Masters

 Ken Masters is one of the most known Street Fighter characters and is a part of the series since 1987 already.

He was also featured in almost all of the Capcom vs SNK / Marvel or Tekken crossovers and is known as one of the most used guys online.

His design was the same for over 25 years but Capcom finally changed him in Street Fighter V (2016) to look more different than a typical “Shoto” before.

Besides the official illustrations for Ken, you will find some of the best Ken Masters fan art images and sooner or later also cosplay photos of him as well in this gallery.
