"Street Fighter Plot guide and character pages" , posted Sun 6 Apr 05:35post reply

1.
The Street Fighter Plot Canon guide (current version) by TiamatRoar will now be run by vasili10 and he will soon drop the first update.

2.
I'm planning to start with the character pages for FightingStreet.com soon, collecting various official information for each character of Street Fighter, Final Fight and Muscle Bomber.

I'd like to know what topics you would like to find there. Each topic will feature at least a short paragraph or a longer description. Sources (mostly Japanese books) will be given.

These are the topics so far:

Name (list of names and variations, meanings,...)

Stats (size, weight,.. according to which game)

Nationality, ethnic group, religion/believe

Likes/Dislikes (Ryu dislikes spiders etc.)

Habits (Guile and Nash smoke,...)

First appearance (at all, in a game, in a fighting game by Capcom)

Games/Movies (in which the character appeared)

Fightingstyle, Power, Moves (how getting hit by a Hadouken feels etc.)

Inspirations (for the design etc.)

Design/Art/Look/Gimmicks (how the look of a character changed,...)

Music (who did it, song title, notes etc.)

Stage (what can be seen, what could it mean)

People (voice actor(s), designer,...)
_____________

General information

Relations to other characters

Rumours, speculation, misbelieves
_____________

Links to other pages

These pages will start incomplete and will constantly be updated over time.

Thanks for your help.

The only request I can think to make is to not try and explain away any inconsistencies in the information. I suspect the people at Capcom are making this stuff up as they go and aren't trying to tell some sort of grand multi-title storyline. But even with that some fans still tie themselves into knots trying to explain what is canon based on conflicting scraps of information. If you avoid doing that you'll probably save yourself a lot of time and headaches.

My suggestion (opinion) is that the pages should just concentrate on the characters as designs, instead of treating them like your love interests listing their history etc. Information like what inspired the character, sketches, changes in moves between games, seiyuu and bgm information etc is something I find far more interesting than some mess various people at Capcom have decided to explain what happened to who and when... and doesn't the plotguide do that already?

Thanks for your replies, well that's pretty much what I was going to do anyway, the Plot Guide is for the plot, the pages are a collection of information about the character and sources for people to check where they are from. It's more a collection of lists than one guide.


I wouldn't say that there is no single plot or at least that there never was one plot for all games but due to the changes and updates certain parts got streched a lot and don't make much sence anymore, which is why Capcom doesn't mention them a lot.

I didn't get the part about not treating them like real people, anybody ever did that?

My biggest suggestion would be to grab some free wiki software so that you can organize the information in a neat, navigable way.

About the wiki thing, I don't have any dynamic server features so I'm not sure wether I'm able to run it.

Bummer. I still appreciate all the work done on the plot guide.
