Street Fighter 6 has a total of 19 characters available. Some are new additions to the universe, while others are long-time fan favorites. If you are looking to get started in the Street Fighter universe, here is the character S-tier list.

In fighting games, there are multiple factors to keep in mind when evaluating a character. Some characters have kits that are complex to execute, other characters have better damage output. Based on these factors, professional players and casual players alike create a consensus on the best characters in the game.

Street Fighter 6 tier list

S TierLuke, Ken, Juri, Cammy
A TierBlanka, Guile, Marisa, Chun-Li, Dee Jay, JP
B TierRashid, Manon, Dhalsim, E.Honda, Lily
C TierKimberly, Ryu, Jamie, Zangief

Any tier list is subject to change over time. As updates roll around and new characters are introduced, some characters will climb up the ladder, and others will fall. It is only natural for developers to attempt to find balance in the game.

There are currently four S-tier characters in Street Fighter 6.

Luke

Luke is the new face of Street Fighter and the one character new players will come to know better. Capcom has placed Luke to become the Ryu of the new generations. They are achieving it by making Luke arguably the best character in the game. Luke has good range, and damage output, and is easy to master, a perfect all-rounder.

Ken

Ken has a new look and some old moves. There is a learning curve with Ken, but once you learn how to use the combos correctly, you become unstoppable. In ranked matches, Ken is an oppressive force.

Juri

Juri is unpredictable. This is an aggressive character that wants to get close and personal with the enemies. Her relentless attacks will frustrate the enemies quickly. Juri is the ideal character for anyone who wants to play fast.

Cammy

Cammy is another character that wants to be close to the opponent. She wants to attack fast, mixing normal with special moves. If you know how to pilot Cammy, you are in for a good time.
