Capcom's CFN Portal Returns With New Street Fighter V Concept Art For Canon Characters


After a 3 month hiatus, Capcom's CFN Portal returns with some new Street Fighter V character concept artwork. Among the new "canon" characters covered are Hakan's wife and daughters, and two pro-wrestlers who take inspirations from real-life wrestling legends.



Name: Meteorito Jr.
Height: 177cm
Weight: 90kg
Blood type: Unknown
Birthday: April 20th
Country of Origin: Mexico
Likes: Movies (he acts in them) [That sounds a lot like El Santo], Baseball
Dislikes: Airplanes

Private Nakagawa: "He was originally a superb high-flyer, who used as his special move, a modified Moonsault Press named "Yucatán Tornado." [This references Último Dragón‘s move Cancún Tornado, a Twisting Moonsault (that Último Dragón mainly did springboarding outside the ring). The inventor of the Twisting Moonsault was Chaparrita ASARI, who named it Skytwister Press, and for this reason it’s considered mainly a female wrestler move in Japan: think DOA’s Tina, or Tekken’s Jaycee for instance, both equipped with the move.] When he came to Japan for a fight, (he went by ship because he’s afraid of planes) he injured his neck after being caught in Antler Inoki’s Abdominal Stretch. From then on, he started using a spinebuster named Kukulkán as a finisher. He’s known as an excellent trainer and has opened his dōjō in Mexico, where he’s raising many promising young wrestlers." [Exactly as Último Dragón himself has done with his Toryumon]

For the 280th Profile, we meet (the likeness of) one of the top Japanese professional wrestlers in history, Antler Inoki.

Private Nakagawa: "The worthy rival of SASHA Nishiki and Meteorito Jr. He even fought against the macho mayor Mike Haggar, a true wrestling legend! The image below depicts him when he was still active." [Antonio Inoki is currently retired and is a wrestling promoter and politician, well known in Japan for his meetings with Saddam Hussein before the Gulf War and, more recently, with North Korean officers, in an effort to improve the relationship between North Korea and Japan.]


Name: Antler Inoki
Height: 191cm
Weight: 100kg
Blood type: AB
Birthday: February 20th
Country of Origin: Japan [All copied straight from Antonio Inoki's real stats. Yup, even his blood type.] Likes: Sunflower Seeds [Antonio Inoki actually sells his own brand of sunflower seeds.] Dislikes: Egg Dishes

Private Nakagawa: "With his unique talent for sports, he was active as a big name killer. [Among others, Antonio Inoki beat Andre the Giant and Vader during his career.] He had friendly relationships with various federations in the whole world, [Even with the then WWF, in which he was an unrecognized champ, having beaten Bob Backlund in a controversial match] and several wrestlers came to Japan to wrestle him in famous matches. He has a fan club, who every month receives cool Antler Goods."

Special thanks once again to Midgardsorn for the translations and footnotes.

Name: Melike [From the Semitic root mlk, "king," and obviously "queen" when in feminine form.] Height: 175cm
Weight: 49kg
Blood type: A
Birthday: April 20th
Country of Origin: Turkey
Likes: Hakan, Her Daughters
Dislikes: Liars

Private Nakagawa: "She's a hugely successful businesswoman who supports her husband. Among her many activities, she sponsors the yağli güreş great tournament [I guess they’re referring to the annual Kırkpınar tournament in Edirne.] and owns a football team. Hakan has such a soft spot for his daughters, that he always buys them whatever they want on the spot. Melike always scolds him for being too indulgent. He never dares to contradict her."

Finally, we move on to Hakan’s seven daughters:


Name: Hakan's daughters
Country of Origin: Turkey
Likes: Daddy and Mommy
Dislikes: Daddy’s songs

Private Nakagawa: "Their special trait is undoubtedly their incredibly unruly hair. It seems it’s a bit of a sore spot for them, too…

Their names are…

The first: Abla ["Elder sister," literally. They don’t have actual Turkish names, taking them mainly from oil-related Turkish terms. With "Abla" they even played with the Japanese term abura, aka "oil", the Turkish "abla" being written the same in katakana.]

128cm / 29kg / July 7th

The second: Susam [ "Sesame"]

125cm / 25kg / October 2nd

The third: Hurması ["Persimmon, date"“, but incorrect as it should be simply hurma. Hurması is the third person possessive form, so it's actually “her persimmon/date.". The Turkish ı (without the dot) is like the English short e in open.]

124cm / 25kg / October 2nd

The fourth: Tereyağı [ "Butter". The Japanese 照れ屋 tereya means "shy", so they played with its meaning by having Tereyağı in her turbulent phase instead. The Turkish ğ doesn't have a real sound, actually lengthening the preceding vowel. So it's like it was written "Tereyah-i." It's the remnant of an old intervocalic g that lost its sound fairly recently, and it’s because of this that now we pronounce the "g" in "yogurt" (a word that came from the Turkish yoğurmak, "to knead") and they don’t anymore.]

121cm / 20kg / December 7th (now in her rebellious phase)

The fifth: Kanola ["Canola"]

122cm / 21kg / December 7th

The sixth: Zeytin ["Olive"]

122cm / 21kg / December 7th

The seventh: Ayçiçeği ["Sunflower". The Japanese "aichichi" can mean "Love daddy." The Turkish ç is the English ch.]

117cm / 17kg / October 16th

"All are blood type A. Their order is visible from the number of blocks in their hair. They like a type of Hakan doll that oozes oil if you squeeze it strongly."

Private Nakagawa:
"They are the daughters of Hakan and Melike. Seven sisters full of energy and vitality. A large family that gets along pretty well, anyway. It seems their father buys them whatever they want."
