This reminds me of the “Favourite fighting game characters” thread, but I can see how it would be different for some, as a main doesn’t necessarily need to be a favourite.

However, in my case, they usually are.

  • Street Fighter: Cammy and Cody.
  • Killer Instinct: Orchid (and most likely Tusk).
  • Mortal Kombat: Jade, Reiko and Tanya.
  • Injustice: Nightwing and Catwoman.
  • Guilty Gear: Millia, Venom and Testament (also taken a liking of Sin in GGXrd, and will most likely try and main Raven in Revelator).
  • Tekken: Nina, Lars and Kunimitsu (whenever she’s available).
  • Virtua Fighter: Sarah and Jacky.
  • Dead or Alive: Hayate and Kasumi (also Sarah and Jacky in DOA5).
  • Blazblue: Bang Shishigami.
  • King of Fighters: K’, Vice and Ash (Benimaru will most likely replace Ash in KOFXIV).
  • Soul Calibur: Taki, Ivy and Zwei.

I guess these are the more recent/relevant fighting games that I play. Not sure if I forgot any…

This is how it goes for me:
KI1: Riptor
KI2: Jago
KI2013: Riptor/Jago/Shago/Omen/Aganos(It’s hard to pick just one)
Soul Calibur 2: Link/Spawn/Yun-seong
Soul Calibur 4: Yun-seong/Lizardman/Nightmare
SF4: Akuma
Mortal Kombat9: Scorpion/Smoke/Jade
Mortal KombatX: Scorpion/Goro/Tremor/Tri-borg

Smash Bros Brawl: Mario/Falcon/Snake/Sonic

Clay Fighter 64: T-Hoppy
Street Fighter 4: Ryu
MK9 : Raiden
