Chun-Li is a strong, competent law enforcement agent. She has shown to be a team player, and she works well with other agents such as Charlie, Guile, and Cammy. She hates criminals with a passion and has vowed to avenge her father’s death.
During a mission in China, she encounters the enigmatic Vega. She takes the opportunity to inquire about her father, inadvertently triggering an intense battle between herself and Vega. Chun-Li is able to use her kicks to overcome the stronger and faster Vega.
Following this, she is enlisted by Karin Kanzuki to help stop the Black Moons. She teams up with Ken Masters and Cammy to locate Laura Matsuda, who gave her the chess piece that is key to shutting down the Black Moons. Chun-Li also runs into Sean, who is part of the Matsuda family. She recognizes him from a previous sparring match, and he reveals that he is Laura’s brother. He tries to garrote her, but she is able to kick him unconscious and he flees.
While chasing down M. Bison, she inadvertently tracks down E. Honda and Balrog, who are both former members of Shadaloo’s mafia, and then allies herself with them in their fight against the crime lord. She also allies with Ryu and Ken to help track down Shadaloo and M. Bison. Her vendetta against Bison causes her to become rash and reckless at times, which can lead to her downfall on occasion.
