Click here for more information about Sakura's other fighting game appearances.

Don't be fooled by her schoolgirl charm. Sakura is far from your average teenager. After witnessing her idol, Ryu, win the first World Warrior Tournament, she was instantly inspired to become a fighter he would be proud of. She traveled the world in hopes of persuading Ryu to train her, but is turned away when he confesses that he himself has much to learn and cannot take on a pupil. Now word on the street is that a new fighting tournament is starting up and Sakura enters with head held high, hoping to see Ryu once more.

Sakura's fighting style is similar to Ryu's, having memorized his movements and trained with Dan, a previous student of Ryu's sensei, Gouken. She may not have the same power as her idol, but her impressive ability to manipulate ki is hard to ignore.
