Description

Ken Masters is one of the main characters of Street Fighter and is one of the only two characters (the other being Ryu) that have appeared in every single installment of the series. He is widely known by many as being Ryu's "clone" using similar attacks such as the Hadoken, Shoryuken and Tatsumaki Senpukyaku, but later games in the series have added subtle differences to their movesets such as Ken's using fire and multi-hit capabilities.

Born to a wealthy family, Ken was sent to Japan to be taught discipline in order to avoid being spoiled by his family. He was trained by his master Gouken and constantly sparred with his future rival and best friend Ryu being taught Ansatsuken, the Assassination's Fist. After leaving Gouken's dojo, Ken returns to America and enters many martial arts tournaments, eventually meeting a woman named Eliza who becomes his girlfriend. Returning to Japan to tell his master of the news of his victories in America, he witnesses the murder of Gouken by his brother Akuma, who easily defeats Ken after he tried to attack him in rage. After the attack, he then searches for Ryu to inform him of their master's death. Upon meeting up with him, the two have a sparring match which Ken comes out victorious who claimed that Ryu wasn't himself and gives him his red headband to cheer him up and telling him to keep focused. Ken later teams up with Sakura Kasugano and Sagat to rescue Ryu from Shadaloo.

Ken then receives an invitation to the second Street Fighter tournament but had been slacking in his training due to spending a lot of time with Eliza. Ryu however challenges and inspires Ken to continue training and enter the tournament. After the events of the tournament, Ken and Eliza would get married, eventually having a son named Mel.

During the events of Street Fighter III, Ken would later take up an apprentice himself in the form of Sean Matsuda of São Paulo, Brazil, after being pestered by the aspiring fighter. Ken later entered the Third World Warrior tournament, held by the Secret Society, but drops out after learning that Ryu had been defeated by the Brazilian hermit Oro. Along the way, Ken fights against Urien, the younger twin of the Society's leader Gill, and meets up with Ryu once again for their long awaited rematch. Ken later enters his third straight US martial arts tournament, where he is named the winner, offering his trophy to Sean.
