Guile (ガイル Gairu?), also known as the Air Force Pilot (空軍パイロット Kūgun pairotto?)[9], is the tetartagonist of the Street Fighter series, first appearing in Street Fighter II. He is a Colonel in the United States Air Force whose goal is to destroy the criminal organization Shadaloo, while at the same time investigating the whereabouts of his best friend Charlie Nash.



Designed by "Pigmon-san" and Akira "Akiman" Yasuda, the original character concept for Guile began in an early 1988 character pitch, starting out as a USMC commando-sweater wearing, American war-veteran named Shilke Muller (German: Schilke Müller), who had earned the nickname Killing Machine due to how savage, intelligent, and formidable he is as a warrior; a former Green Beret with a high IQ of 220 that is superhuman enough for him to be able to completely read the minds of his enemies, has lightning-fast movements, and his special move is the Jumping Hundred Crack Knife.

The prototype character design appears to be based off of the minor antagonist Narumi from the manga Riki-Oh (both characters being spiky-haired fighters with savage personalities who have habits of licking their own knives). In addition, Shilke is also oddly named after the female sprinter of East-Germany, Silke Möller.

This concept would later be passed down to the Mad Gear Gang's fourth ringleader Rolento F. Schugerg and his foot-soldier goons El Gado and Holly Wood in an up-and-coming spin-off brawler that Capcom would release a year later named Final Fight, which was briefly titled during development as Street Fighter '89 and the character would also have a weaponless moveset and a more unique appearance while being renamed as Guile.


In an interview with producer Noritaka Funamizu, he reveals that Guile's overall appearance was modeled after Jean Pierre Polnareff, a character from the manga series JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.[10] Guile's page in Street Fighter X Tekken Artworks goes into detail, explaining that early designs included Polnareff's vertical, yet modest hairstyle, but at the time the sprites were being made for Street Fighter II, the pixel artist jokingly stretched Guile's hair out to the sides. The team found it amusing and decided to give him "the always distinctive Stroheim look" instead. Noritaka also explains that Guile's name was derived from Polnareff's archenemy, J.Geil, though this was apparently the result of a mix up from the development staff at the time.[11] Furthermore, Guile's Sonic Boom was called the "Divine Sandstorm" during development [12], the signature technique of Wamuu.


Early Street Fighter II sketches and notes suggest that Guile was developed specifically to appeal to American fans. His physical appearance is strikingly different from the many Asian characters in the Street Fighter series, with light blue eyes (or green eyes) without eyebrows (pre-Street Fighter 6), a chiseled jaw, a permanently displeased expression, and his most recognizable feature: a particularly three-inch flattop hairdo. The length of Guile's hair varies greatly from appearance to appearance; it is relatively realistic in Street Fighter II, and impossibly wide in SNK vs. Capcom: SVC Chaos. Capcom source books suggest that Guile's famous hairdo is styled with a special-order army hair spray to keep it up, though he usually fixes it quickly after a match. Guile's eyelashes are also blonde.

Guile's all-American image includes military fatigues and United States flag tattoos on each shoulder; following standard United States military protocol, the stars are on the left hand side to give the illusion that the flag is flying 'towards' battle. The image of the uniformed American Airman is well known in Japan due to the number of United States Armed Forces bases present in that country.

Guile wears Charlie's dog tag alongside his own; in Street Fighter IV, one of Guile's alternate costumes resembles Charlie's costume.

In Street Fighter V, Guile wears a white military button shirt with dark blue emblems in each sides, a matching dark blue tie on the collar with 'US' emblems in each sides, dark blue military pants with a black belt on his waist and black combat shoes. He wears his signature sports sunglasses as part of his default costume and wears a blue ID with his imprinted full name on the right side and a gold eagle badge on the left. His first alternate costume is his classic attire from Street Fighter II and his second costume has him wearing a brown flak vest with a blue gray army jumpsuit with the sleeves are rolled up into cuffs and a white undershirt. He retains his sports sunglasses, black combat shoes, black watch, and Charlie's dogtag from his primary outfit.

In Street Fighter 6, Guile now has a blond goatee, eyebrows and wears a blue military sleeveless vest with emblems and matching jeans that resembles a military pilot jumpsuit. Beneath his outfit is a white short sleeve hoodie with the sleeves are rolled up to make it sleeveless and yellow boots with green outlines resembling sneakers.

His third alternate costume was his semi-casual outfit and marks the first time in Street Fighter's history to see Guile without the flat-top hairstyle. His blond hair appear as short-length with small fringes in each sides and has a small ponytail.

He wears a black and gray pinstripped formal vest with a left pocket, a white long sleeve button-up shirt which is partially opened and the sleeves are folded into cuffs, light blue jeans with a brown belt around his waist along with a gold round buckle and light red leather shoes.

This outfit is near similar to Cody's main outfit in Street Fighter V.


Guile is a tough man, both physically and mentally, who takes pride in family, and is a loving husband and father to his family. Although not shown, this care and concern also extends to his in-laws, like with Ken.

A stoic man at heart, Guile's calm and emotionless exterior actually hides intense feelings, especially his fury after Charlie's death. Although loyal to the Air Force and the United States, Guile is extremely persistent. He always seeks to get the bottom of the matter, especially concerning M. Bison, Shadaloo, and what happened with Charlie Nash, which has led to problems with his superiors. Despite this, they have high respect and esteem for him. His persistence has also caused pain to his family, which hurts him deeply.

In Street Fighter X Tekken, it is revealed that he is scared of bears, while he states in his win quote toward Dee Jay in Super Street Fighter IV that he only likes country music.

In Street Fighter V, Guile is shown to be a stoic and very focused person, always giving advice to others including Abel about recklessness, bravery and the will to survive the battlefield. He is also seen to be happy when he and Charlie are having a sparring match after both end up in a draw. However, during the game's story, his friendship with Charlie was damaged when Guile was overpowered by Charlie in a fight. Throughout A Shadow Falls, his friendship with Charlie was rekindled after rescuing him and Rashid from Necalli and returning the dog-tag necklace back to him. However in the final assault against Shadaloo, Guile became very sad and concerned over Charlie's sacrifice. Following the incident, Guile also gives Luke a high regard when they spar each other within the latter's character story and also respects the latter's decision to quit the military.

Character Relationships



Although they do not have such a close relationship, they are friends and have great respect for each other as fighters and people. Ryu invited him to eat Natto once, and when he tasted it (out of respect) he found it disgusting, becoming his most hated food, which Ryu seems to know about, according to one of his win quotes directed at Guile.[13] In the November 1st, 2018 issue of Weekly Famitsu, Ryu and Guile had a section where they talk about their private lives and their impressions of each other. Ryu tells Guile that he was dissatisfied with being treated as a wanderer with no money despite having a fixed address, living a normal life when off and having the money to fly to different countries. Guile, on the other hand, was astonished.

Ken Masters

Guile gets along well with his brother-in-law, even though he doesn't like Ken because of his cocksure and conceited personality, as seen in various win quotes and intro quotes. Ken invites him and his family in Street Fighter IV to see his about-to-be-born son, and even helps him out with a bad hair day. Despite Ken's brash personality, the two look out for one another, and in Street Fighter 6, Guile seeks out Ken, worried about him and his current crisis in life, despite Ken distancing himself, not wanting Guile to be dragged by association. Guile instinctively understands Ken's actions and decides to help him by other means, deducing that an even greater threat has driven his brother-in-law to the edge.

Charlie Nash

Guile's superior officer and close friend, Charlie Nash is the one who taught Guile his current fighting style. He greatly values Guile; in order to save him and Chun-Li, he sacrificed his own life in a vain effort to end Bison. Despite his warped mental state in Street Fighter V, it is implied that he still sees Guile as a close friend. However, based on both their win quotes against each other, Charlie's change seems to mar their friendship, as Charlie states that he has nothing more to say to him about his revival. This also shows in the game's cinematic story mode, in which Helen instructs him to take a special chess piece from Guile to help him stop Shadaloo. Despite his shock at being told to fight Guile, he later confronts Guile as well as Chun-Li and Cammy coldly without a single word of explanation. Charlie manages to overpower Guile, who still doesn't fully believe this is actually him due to his stitched-together appearance and detached ruthless demeanor. However, in later scenes, the two rekindle their friendship after Guile rescues him from being chased from Necalli. At the end of A Shadow Falls, Guile watches the Shadaloo base collapse sadly, as this appears to be the second and certain death of his best friend.


When the two first met, Abel, having watched Guile practice his Sonic Boom, asked how Guile could perform it. Knowing that only he and his mentor, Charlie, could do it, Guile asked Abel where he first saw it. Thinking that Guile is a spy, Abel said that he wouldn't tell someone he doesn't know his secrets and refuses to talk, leading to a fight. The result is unknown, but since Abel later shows Guile, Chun-Li and Cammy to the S.I.N base later in the story, it is presumed that either Guile won or that Chun-Li persuaded Abel to take them.

In Street Fighter V, Guile considers Abel a friend. They work together, with Guile advising and guiding him on how to act.

Cammy White

Cammy and Guile are good friends and usually team up together with Chun-Li to do missions, mostly those involving Shadaloo. Close to the end of Street Fighter IV: The Ties That Bind, a bandaged Cammy is seen with Guile, implying that he was the one overseeing her recovery.


His longtime friend and partner. Despite their opposite attitudes, they are very similar in their way of thinking and life philosophies.


Guile is on good terms with Dhalsim, likely due, in part, to their children's closeness.

Luke Sullivan

To honor his fallen allies, Charlie, and Robert Sullivan, Guile acts as a mentor of the latter's son, Luke. Thanks to a permission to let Luke leave the military, Guile gives him advice to pursue competitive fighting circuits across the globe and fight stronger opponents there.


M. Bison

Guile despises Bison for his crimes against humanity and holds him responsible for the demise of his friend Charlie.


Because Guile reminds her of soldiers that wrought havoc in her homeland, Kolin does not have a favorable view of Guile, and the same would be true for Charlie Nash if Charlie were not under her and Illuminati's command.


Due to his evil plans, Guile views Seth as no different from Bison and wants to arrest him.

Doctrine Dark

A former subordinate of his, D. Dark blames Guile for what happened to him and his unit and seeks revenge.


After what JP did to Ken, Guile begins to investigate his surrounding and his schemes, starting from the previous Nayshall incident where JP framed Ken.



When Guile was a trainee in the United States Air Force, he met his superior officer, Charlie Nash and asked him to teach him his unique form of fighting, which Charlie agreed to do.[citation needed] Guile learned the style, but his hot temper caused him to lack proficiency in the moves compared to Charlie; Charlie can shoot Sonic Booms with one hand, while Guile needs both.

When Guile was a fighter pilot, he was shot down and taken prisoner. After being repeatedly interrogated in an enemy base as a POW, he eventually was rescued by First Lieutenant Charlie Nash, and the two have been close friends ever since.[14]

Street Fighter Alpha 3

Guile was not introduced to the series until the events of Street Fighter Alpha 3 (Street Fighter Alpha 2's events involving Charlie are now considered canon while Guile's involvement in this game is now considered non-canon), where he is addressed as "Commander". Guile is sent by the United States Air Force to look for his senior teammate and best friend Charlie, who has gone missing during a secret investigation. Guile's search eventually leads him to the Interpol investigator Chun-Li, who warns him not to follow Charlie due to the danger involved. Guile demonstrates his fighting ability, and assures Chun-Li that he will not let their friend come to harm. He eventually finds the Shadaloo base in Thailand. Guile informs Charlie that they do not need to be there any longer, as an aerial bombardment will begin in an hour. Charlie, however, insists that Shadaloo leader M. Bison will escape, and they come to blows. The sinister and powerful M. Bison appears and attacks the two Airmen, but is no match for their combined prowess. He is forced to retreat, calling a gunship to keep them pinned down and cover his escape.

The two give chase, and follow him into the base, deciding that M. Bison's source of power, the Psycho Drive, must be destroyed. Chun-Li then appears and informs them that the bombardment has been called off, surmising that Bison has somehow used his influence to avert the air strike. She goes on to tell them that she has set explosives in an attempt to destroy the base, but is unsure if they'll be enough. As she rushes to escape, Charlie and Guile decide to set explosives around the Psycho Drive to ensure that if nothing else, it at least will be destroyed.

As they set their charges, M. Bison fought with Ryu and his allies in an epic battle. In the end, Ryu defeated him, destroying his body temporarily and forcing M. Bison to regenerate in the Psycho Drive. Bison successfully regenerated his body then Charlie convinces Guile to escape while he holds Bison off, and Guile escaped right before the base explodes, with Charlie and Bison presumably caught in the blast. Chun-Li and Ryu eventually find Guile standing on a mountain, and Chun-Li says that Charlie may perhaps be alive somewhere, just as she believes that her father may be. Guile agrees, and says that he will continue to believe in Charlie.[15]

Street Fighter II

Guile is still affiliated with the USAF and now holds the rank of Major. Holding Bison responsible for the supposed death of his best friend Charlie who had gone missing while pursuing and hunting down the former, Guile was eager to take revenge against his sworn enemy. A court case against the Shadaloo dictator fails when Bison bribes all the judges to let him go free. Bison by this time wants revenge towards those who had hindered his criminal organization's efforts. To this end, he sets up the second World Warrior tournament so that he can trap and eliminate his enemies in one fell swoop. Guile takes the bait, deserting his wife and daughter to pursue his vendetta.

In his ending, he defeats Bison and lifts him on his knees by his throat to finish him off just after reminding him of who he murdered, but is dissuaded from killing him by his wife Julia (localized as Jane overseas) and their daughter Chris (localized as Amy overseas). He then spares the bruised and bloody Bison and returns to his country to spend Christmas with his family.

Guile's ending in HD Remix and Ultra depicts him having Bison at his mercy and reminding him of Charlie. Bison shows no regret and dares Guile to kill him. Guile hesitates, but ultimately refuses to kill Bison, stating he is not a murderer like Bison. Guile visits Charlie's grave three days later, saying that he knows now that revenge will not bring Charlie back and says that his obsession for revenge consumed him and destroyed his family. This monologue is interrupted by arrival of his wife and daughter, Julia and Chris who persuade him to come back home. Guile hesitates, but then embraces them, determined to be the best husband and father he can be.

Street Fighter IV: The Ties That Bind

This section is currently incomplete.
Please assist the Street Fighter Wiki,
and complete the section if you can.

Pre-Super Street Fighter IV

Some time after the fall of Shadaloo, Chun-Li, Guile and Cammy are summoned to a theme park to stop the rampage of S.I.N. operative Juri, who is wreaking extreme havoc. While Guile and Cammy try to evacuate the civilians still trapped, Chun-Li faces Juri just as she executes a rogue S.I.N agent and a woman. Juri seriously injures Chun-Li but before she can execute her, she is forced to flee when Guile and Cammy arrive due to her artificial eye malfunctioning.

Guile and Cammy later act on an anonymous tip and track Juri down to an old Shadaloo base which houses the twelve former Dolls. When they arrived, Juri had already defeated all twelve Dolls and had just finished off Juli and Juni. A fierce fight ensues and Guile is eventually incapacitated by Juri, leaving Cammy to face her alone. Guile later informs Chun-Li about their failure to apprehend Juri.

Street Fighter IV

Though Shadaloo is seemingly gone, Guile still believes it is possible that Charlie may be alive, since Charlie's body was never recovered. Guile demands that his superiors to allow him to continue the search. His commanding officer refuses, and Guile tenders his resignation. Guile is surprised when his superior ignores the resignation, assigning Guile to the investigation of S.I.N., an organization with alleged ties to Shadaloo. Guile is at first skeptical that Shadaloo lives on without Bison's leadership, but soon takes to his new assignment with zeal. Recruiting Chun-Li to the investigation, the two enter a new tournament organized by S.I.N., in the hopes of infiltrating its headquarters.

Over the course of the tournament he encounters a mysterious French fighter named Abel, who seems to recognize Guile's Sonic Boom attack. Since only he and Charlie know this attack, Guile comes to the conclusion that Abel has information on Charlie's ultimate fate, and immediately starts pressing him for answers on where he saw the Sonic Boom before. Abel is completely unwilling to share such sensitive information with a stranger who could easily be a spy, and they exchange blows. It is currently unknown who won the fight, but it is implied that Guile won, as Abel is later seen travelling with Guile and Chun-Li to the S.I.N base.

Later, in the S.I.N. headquarters, Guile recovers important data while Chun-Li is trapped by Vega with the base's self-destruction imminent. En route to rescuing Chun-Li, Guile is ambushed by one of Bison's cyborgs (in the same mold as Seth). Abel arrives and takes on the cyborg instead, telling Guile where Chun-Li is and telling him to hurry. Exactly how Chun-Li is then rescued is unclear - Gen seems to have protected her from a collapse and then broken free from the rubble, but is nowhere to be seen later as Guile and Abel watch the base explode, with an unconscious Chun-Li in Guile's arms.

After these events, Guile returns to Charlie's grave, placing a beer bottle on it as a way of buying his old friend a drink. He tells the grave that although S.I.N.'s plans have been foiled, he knows that he hasn't seen the last of Shadaloo just yet.[16]

Street Fighter V

On October 2015, a datamining of Street Fighter V's PC beta test revealed fighter data and character meshes of Guile, Dhalsim, Juri, Urien, Alex, Ibuki and Balrog.[17][18] Guile and the rest of the characters (except for Dhalsim, who was confirmed earlier as a default fighter) were later confirmed as DLC at the PlayStation Experience on December 5th, 2015. Guile himself was unveiled on April 18th, 2016, showcasing his V-Skill, V-Trigger and Critical Art, along with some miscellaneous screenshots and his reveal trailer was shown the day after.[19] He has been playable since April 28, 2016.

Character Story

In the prologue story, he saves Abel, who is undercover, after he is found out by F.A.N.G, disrupting the fight before F.A.N.G has a chance to attack Abel any further. After a brawl, Guile deducts that Shadaloo is behind the missing hackers. F.A.N.G escapes and tells Guile that he will pay for interfering. Guile tells Abel to be patient and that continuing after him will lead him into another trap. In a flashback, Charlie advises him not to get so heated, knowing about his hot temper. Guile understands and knows to keep the heart hot, but the mind cool as they spar.

Back in the present day, Guile and Abel work together to investigate into the missing hackers, noting former S.I.N members are being abducted. They find the abandoned S.I.N laboratory and notice Juri, who is also at the lab. Abel questions Juri about what she's doing there, who taunts him and escapes, telling them there's nothing of worth in the lab. Both Guile and Abel discover that Shadaloo's next plan is Operation C.H.A.I.N.S, much to their horrible shock, and the lab begins to crumble. Abel almost gets crushed into the debris, but Guile helps him to escape, stating that he does not want to have his friends die.

Back in China, Abel is happy that Guile saves him. He senses that Vega is nearby and fights him. Vega warns him about the "stage of death", before escaping. Guile tells Abel that fighting in the battlefield while staying in control means survival and that they're the ones who are going to win until the end.

A Shadow Falls

In the game's main story, Guile's superior, General Byron Taylor, is investigating the Black Moon which had detonated over New York, causing loss of signal and blackouts. Guile informs General Taylor that the attack might be connected to the missing hackers that have been kidnapped by Shadaloo. General Taylor sends him on a mission to New York with Chun-Li joining to come along.

In New York, he and Chun-Li find all four of the Shadaloo executives. He tries to stop Chun-Li from fighting, but fails. Chun-Li is knocked down by M. Bison and is nearly finished off when Cammy saves her and helps her escape with Guile.

Later, Cammy talks to Guile about the seven Black Moons and their connection to the missing hackers. She gives Chun-Li one of the keys to the Black Moons. Charlie, now resurrected, confronts Guile and fights him to get the key. Charlie manages to overpower Guile. Guile angrily throws a Sonic Boom, which Charlie absorbs. Charlie takes the key and leaves with Rashid and Azam.

Guile is enlisted by Karin Kanzuki to stop Shadaloo and their plans. Zangief, who had received a key, gave it to a friend in India, so Guile and Zangief go to India to get it. When they get the key, they are ambushed by Balrog, Ed, Santamu, and other Shadaloo soldiers. They try to fight off Shadaloo, but Ed gets the key, which was hidden inside Zangief's chest hairs, and leave.

Guile pilots an escape helicopter during the first assault on the Shadaloo base and reunites with Charlie.

When they return to the Kanzuki Estate, Guile is relieved to see Charlie again. They subdue Abel, who is under the influence of Psycho Power. Charlie uses his absorption power to remove Abel's Psycho Power. As Charlie leaves to regroup with Rashid and Kolin, Guile gives his dogtag back to him.

During the final assault against Shadaloo, both Chun-Li and Guile are confronted by Bison. Charlie appears and fights off M. Bison. Charlie sacrifices himself in an attempt to kill Bison as Guile helplessly watches. The sacrifice proves to be fruitless as Bison survives the kamikaze. Rashid eventually shuts down Operation C.H.A.I.N.S as a whole, allowing Ryu to finish off M. Bison. Guile escapes the explosion with Ryu and Chun-Li and reunites with the team, knowing that M. Bison was finally gone.

Other Prologue Appearances

  • In Chun-Li's prologue story (during the events of the Street Fighter Alpha games), Guile and Charlie reunite with Chun-Li who is trying to pursue Vega. Chun-Li decides to find Vega alone until Charlie challenges her to a fight much to Guile's surprise. After this, Charlie tells her that she was ready but needs back up to help her. When Birdie and other Shadaloo soldiers are blocking their way to attack them, he and Charlie manage to take them down with their Flash Kicks allowing Chun-Li to pursue Vega. After she fails to arrest the Spanish ninja, Guile advises her not to act so recklessly and encourages her not to give up.
  • In Charlie's prologue story (also during the events of Street Fighter Alpha), Guile was sent by their superior to track down Charlie. He successfully finds Charlie and tells him about their commander's orders. Guile becomes worried about his best friend, noticing his personality change, and decides to help him. Charlie refuses and tells Guile that his family needs him.
  • In Kolin's prologue story (which takes place between Street Fighter IV and Street Fighter V) Guile continues his search for Charlie and was confronted by Kolin, unaware that she was the one who took Charlie's corpse in order to revive him. Guile asks her where Charlie is, which she refuses to answer as she attacks him. After being defeated by her, she disappears and Guile meets up with his superior officer, General Byron Taylor, and tells him that Charlie is already dead. As they leave the scene, Kolin is revealed to be hiding on the branch of a tree after she defeats Guile and became disgusted by them because they are the ones responsible for destroying her home during the war.

Street Fighter 6

A US Air Force pilot who fights for his country, Guile succeeded in dismantling Shadaloo and avenging his friend Charlie. He enjoys living the family man life, but new battlefields await him. Guile also appears in the Carrier Byron Taylor stage when not used by the players.

Arcade Mode

Guile: In-Laws

Taking place after the Nayshall incident (as depicted in Days of the Eclipse). After Guile and Luke had a sparring match on board the USS Byron Taylor, they discussed about the incident in Nayshall. Guile asks if Luke were involved in any way with Ken, who was blamed for the incident. Luke answered his former superior that Ken is innocent and was in fact "set up" by the terrorist.

After Luke leaves, Guile briefly monologues to the player about how Ken got involved in the incident. According to Guile, Ken wanted to invest in Nayshall's development before being accused of funding terrorists, which forced him to resign from the Masters Foundation and "disappeared from the limelight" afterwards. Guile still doesn't believe that Ken is the type of person who would do anything for monetary gain, though he wanted to find Ken to ask him directly about it.

Some time later, Guile found Ken hiding within the Metro City Downtown. Since Guile found that Ken is hiding "right under [his] nose" the entire time, he asks if Ken wanted to keep in low profile and only comes out when someone is trying to tamper with his family's foundation. Ken quickly dejects Guile's question however, as he believes Guile came here to scold "[his] loser of a brother-in-law." Guile denies that he came there to insult his brother-in-law, and then challenges Ken for a fight, as he believes the only language that Ken would understand is their fists.

After the fight, Guile tells Ken that his wife Julia had told him everything about what really happened, and mentions that Ken's wife Eliza were worried about him too. Despite this, Ken refuses to go back to his family. Assuming that Ken is still worried about the incident, Guile assured him that him and his associates knew that he were framed and would help him. Still too shaken by the incident, Ken laments on how he is "not even sure what [he's] fighting for anymore" and refuses Guile's help, as he wanted to solve the problem without having anyone he loved being put in danger.

As Ken leaves, Guile decided to take the matter his own hands, and start to investigate what really happened in Nayshall himself, as he believes whosever responsible for driving Ken into the edge must be a greater threat than they anticipated.

Crossover appearances

Marvel vs. Capcom series

Guile makes a brief appearance in Charlie's ending in X-Men vs. Street Fighter, vowing to avenge Charlie's apparent death, though he is named only as "Charlie's friend" and his face is obscured by shadows. He appears as a playable character in Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes.

Capcom vs. SNK series

Guile appeared as a playable character in Capcom vs. SNK: Millennium Fight 2000, Mark of the Millennium 2001/EO, SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium and SNK vs. Capcom: SVC Chaos.

Guile has a special introduction against Rugal Bernstein in the Capcom vs. SNK games where he cuts a statue of himself in half with a Sonic Boom before Rugal destroys the base with a Reppuuken. This is in reference to The King of Fighters '94 where Rugal had a statue of the likeness of Guile among his various trophies, and to how one of his most infamous acts was trying to kill Heidern of the Ikari Warriors mercenary group when the latter was in the military.

SNK vs. Capcom: SVC Chaos sees that Guile is in possession of vital and confidential information presumably gathered by the US government and the social climate the game's time setting portrays, having extensive knowledge of Geese Howard's intricate Southtown criminal empire, knowing that "Blue" Mary Ryan is undercover with Terry Bogard, and Doctor Thomas Light's inventions, especially those related with the "Mega Man Project", eventually confronting and mistaking Zero as the titular Mega Man.

Capcom Fighting Evolution

Guile also appeared playable in Capcom Fighting Evolution.

Street Fighter X Tekken

Guile is a playable character in Street Fighter X Tekken, where he is paired with Abel. He is ordered to secure Pandora, and is called by Abel to get a ride to the South Pole in order to join him. Though Guile allows this, he orders Abel not to blow their cover - which he nearly does on several occasions.

During the cutscene before their rival battle against Heihachi and Kuma, Abel makes a "deal" with Heihachi, stating that they will take Kuma if they win - a proposition neither Guile nor Kuma particularly approve of. Guile is less than fond of bears, and is in no hurry to compromise his mission; Kuma and Heihachi, on the other hand, assumed Abel intended to eat the former (a running joke throughout the game), when in reality Abel simply wanted to pet him.

Once they defeat Ogre and get to Pandora, Abel is mesmerized by Pandora's beauty, while Guile attempts to pull him back, saying they don't know whats inside Pandora, when the box opens and creates several "alien" copies of Kuma, which makes Abel come even closer, at which point Guile appears to give up on bringing back Abel and heads back to the U.S.

Guile's ending after the credits shows he becomes world famous, and he appears to enjoy it all. However, due to Abel's actions during their journey to Pandora, Guile swears to never work with partners again - coincidentally, Abel's ending has him planning to call on Guile once more.

Power Rangers Legacy Wars

Guile is a playable character in this game. As Rita Repulsa's hold on the Morphin Grid stretches across multiverses, Guile is among the warriors who are sucked into the Grid, pitted against those from the Power Rangers multiverse.

Guile is the main protagonist of the Street Fighter animated series, and is depicted as the leader of an organization of Street Fighters consisting of himself, Chun-Li, Blanka, Ryu, Ken, T. Hawk, Cammy, Dee Jay, Fei Long and Dhalsim. M. Bison survived his battle with Guile following the events of the film, and Guile's sole goal is to destroy Bison once and for all.

Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie

Guile is assigned to work together with Chun-Li in order to take down Bison, whose organization Shadaloo (Shadowlaw in the English dub) has been kidnapping martial artists and brainwashing them to do his evil bidding. Guile is, at first, far from happy to work with another person on the case, claiming loudly that "Bison's ass is mine", but a friendship builds between the two partners.

The film follows Guile's plot from the video game in Guile tracking down Bison to avenge Charlie's death, and his vendetta is amplified when Chun-Li is severely beaten by Vega on Bison's orders. Near the end of the film, Guile manages to track Ryu down but is followed by Bison and a brainwashed Ken. Guile engages Bison in combat but is outmatched by the crime lord's overwhelming speed and only manages to damage his cape with a Sonic Boom. Bison then finishes the fight by blasting Guile down a chasm. Guile survives this, although exhausted and bloodied, and when Bison finds Guile he decides to spare him, as an insult, and leaves. Guile is rescued along with Balrog by E. Honda. In his final scene, Guile, fully recovered, is moved to tears when informed that Chun-Li survived Vega's attack.

Street Fighter II V

In this TV series, Guile is a flattop-f Technical Sergeant (E-6) in the U.S. Air Force, who spends most of his time training physically and who has great pride in the Air Force. He faces Ryu in a bar fight after Ryu and Ken beat up some of his men, although it was Guile's men who started the fight in the first place when Ken angered and humiliated them by stealing one of their dates, Guile easily defeats Ryu, only to face Ken, who challenges him in an air force base to avenge Ryu. Despite a severe hangover, Guile is able to defeat Ken, which motivates the duo to start a training journey and improve their martial arts skills by challenging opponents around the world.

While in a temple located in India, Ryu fights an illusion of Guile during a training session, but stops the fight and acknowledges his respect for the Sergeant for showing them how arrogant they were and inspiring them to travel the world. Later in the series, Guile is recruited by Ken's father along with his friend Charlie (who retains his Japanese name, Nash, in the dub) when Ryu, Ken and Chun-Li are taken captive by Shadaloo. He faces Zangief while infiltrating Bison's base, while Nash confronts Bison himself. Guile knocks Zangief out, but is unable to rescue Nash in time from Bison's grasp, who pits a brainwashed Chun-Li against the enraged Sergeant. Outside, Guile fights Chun-Li until Bison's demise snaps her out of her brainwashing, and he is last seen showing admiration for Ryu and Ken when they emerge unharmed from the battlefield.

Comics and Manga

Please assist the Street Fighter Wiki,

Udon Comics

Guile is given a central role alongside Chun-Li, particularly in the first arc but he also is a frequent cast member in later arcs. Similar to the official story, Guile is chasing after Shadaloo to discover the whereabouts of his Air Force buddy, Charlie Nash. Guile is first introduced to Charlie after his aircraft is shot down and Charlie commands a black-ops mission to rescue him. Like the official story, Charlie teaches Guile to fight. For the first arc of the comics, Guile spends his time looking for Ryu, believing to there to be a connection between him and Shadaloo. He traces him to the US and then back to Japan. While in Japan, he and Chun-Li engage a Shadaloo-controlled Charlie (codenamed "Agent Shadow") and fight him off. At the end of the first story arc, Charlie regains his senses and rejoins Chun-Li and Guile before they're attacked by M. Bison. Charlie unleashes his latent Psycho Power abilities and sacrifices himself to take out Bison (Charlie giving his own life to stop Bison echoes Guile's ending in Street Fighter Alpha 3), leaving Guile distraught and swearing vengeance against Shadaloo. Afterwards, Guile continues to assist Chun-Li in looking for Bison (whom they believe survived his encounter with Charlie) but all the while juggling his struggling relationship with his wife, Julia, and their daughter, Chris. Eventually the family reconciles at the end of the comic's second arc. Guile isn't heavily active during the second series of comics (Street Fighter II) but he is given an invitation to Bison's tournament, which he accepts as his final bid for vengeance. The final series (Street Fighter II Turbo) documents Guile's entry into M. Bison's fighting tournament. While on Shadaloo island, he is contacted by Cammy, who needs his help but cannot openly assist him as she is attempting to fool Bison into thinking she is under his control. Through a carefully woven set of scripted matches, Guile and Chun-Li get themselves eliminated from the tournament and successfully free the Delta Red squadron. Together they manage to locate and destroy Bison's Psycho Drive before evacuating the island as it sinks. The aftermath of the tournament show that Guile is satisfied with the results, believing he has successfully avenged Charlie, and is now comfortably living with his family.

Other appearances

Street Fighter EX series


Since the storyline of Street Fighter EX is an alternate storyline, it takes place around the time that the event depicted in Street Fighter Alpha would have occurred. As such, M. Bison is at large and in the process of building up his Shadaloo army.

Guile awaits any news about his commander Charlie, who was last sent on a recon mission to discover the whereabouts of M. Bison's secret Shadaloo hideout. When no word is heard from Charlie in over a month, Guile begins to plead for the chance to lead a rescue mission, but his superiors refuse.

Then word reaches Guile about an underground Street Fighting tournament being held, reportedly hosted by M. Bison himself. Guile sees this as the opportunity that he's been looking for, and arranges to enter the tournament as a way to investigate the whereabouts of his commander and best friend.

During the tournament, Guile meets the Interpol agent Chun-Li. At first, he is shocked to meet a woman who is such a competent fighter. Then he learns that she is a member of Interpol, and that she is seeking revenge on M. Bison for the death of her father. He sees Chun-Li as a powerful potential ally, and conducts his investigation in cooperation with hers. Seeing the third EX tournament as a chance to take down M. Bison for good, he asks Chun-Li to be his partner, and she accepts.


Street Fighter EX

"My burden is different from yours. For my friend and for Holger, I cannot rest until I have saved their souls. For I am an avenger!"

Street Fighter EX Plus α

"Holger, vengeance is not everything!" Guile, the soldier who once fought to avenge his friend. And he suffered because of his mind was filled with maliciousness and fear. Can he dissuade Doctrine Dark from this desire?

Street Fighter EX2

"Sonic Boom Typhoon!!"
A flash of light engulfed Bison at the speed of sound. It was the end of Shadaloo. "Kill me already!" said Vega. But just when Guile is about to comply and deliver the finishing blow, a voice begs him to stop.
"Vengeance is not what he would have wanted. Look, this is your child. Please give us a chance again!"
The cold heart of a lone military man was warmed by the family he thought he abandoned.

Street Fighter EX2 Plus

"I must endure to protect my friends and family."
The training of the recruits was becoming extremely intense. "Sir!" answered the recruits. Guile murmured quietly in his mind...
"Revenge... It's nothing but an act of emptiness."

Street Fighter EX3

Though Guile won the fight against Bison, he was seriously wounded, and was starting to lose consciousness. With the henchmen of the Shadaloo surrounding him, sounds of metal could be heard as one man snarled, "...Time to die, hero..." When Guile realized that this would be his last stand, the memories of his wife and daughter flooded in mind. As he rose to his feet, he thought, "I won't let this be the end! I will come back to you!"

Gameplay and fighting style

Guile's overall style revolves around patiently anticipating the opponent's next move and attacking. He has a strong mix of solid offense and defense, combined with reliable agility and air grabs. However, Guile can easily be baited into using his moves at the wrong time and be subject to sweeping and airborne attacks. His style is also an inspiration from the MCMAP (Marine Corps Martial Arts Program).

Guile's moveset has remained fairly consistent throughout his appearances compared to the rest of the cast - his only special moves are the Sonic Boom and Flash Kick. Both moves require a charge motion, thus, he requires a bit of skill and frequent use of certain situations such as jump-ins to integrate them into combos. Due to the greater difficulty of playing Guile offensively rather than defensively, Guile is known for trying to space his opponent more than trying to gain an offensive edge; staying one step ahead of his opponent and proper execution of his defensive patterns is vital. Though his options may seem limited, his wide array of Unique Attacks mean that he is far from predictable. Options such as Spinning Back Knuckle, Knee Bazooka, and Guile High Kick are used in conjunction with his special moves to control space, mistime the opponent, or get even more damage from various opportunities. Knowing when to use these options is key to proper Guile play.

In Street Fighter V, while Guile still has his two original special moves, he now has three new methods to his battle plan; Faultless Move allows him to keep his charge while moving forward, using his V-Skill, Sonic Blade, Guile spins up energy to create a stationary projectile that can also power up his Sonic Booms, and finally Guile powers up and tosses out continuous Sonic Booms with each button throws when using his V-Trigger, Solid Puncher, he can throw a Sonic Boom at a different speed and it can be used in combos on three or four consecutive hits.

Guile is known in particular for his various command normals and combo abilities, and is also one of the most notable characters in fighting games to have a double hitting sweep (though only one can hit unblocked). Overall, his gameplay style is a contrast to Charlie's gameplay style despite their similar abilities.

Sonic Boom in Street Fighter 6, when Guile inputs the punch button within four frames of the last directional input, deals more damage, and is visibly bigger than its normal counterpart. His Sonic Blade and Sonic Cross also returns to the game, now as special moves.

Super/Ultra Combos

Guile's signature Super Combo is the Double Flash, sometimes better known as the Somersault/Flash Kick Strike; he performs 2 or 3 consecutive Flash Kicks in a row. Starting in Street Fighter Alpha 3, he also has the Sonic Hurricane, a short-range 'cyclone' projectile that traps the opponents if it hits; some games give it a bit of a vacuum effect. As of Street Fighter 6, he gains a upwards, diagonal version of the Sonic Hurricane that acts as an anti-air projectile.

In the Street Fighter EX series, Guile can use the Opening Gambit, which features consecutive punches with a finishing sideways Flash Kick. His Meteor Combo in the EX series is called Sonic Boom Typhoon; he creates a giant Sonic Boom tornado that inflicts a heavy amount of damage. In Capcom vs. SNK he gains another Super Combo called Total Wipeout, which allows him to perform consecutive punches that end with a final backhand punch that knocks the opponent away.

His Ultra Combos in Super Street Fighter IV are the Sonic Hurricane and the Flash Explosion, a Double Flash followed by one more Flash Kick to strike the opponent as they fall out of the air.

In Street Fighter V, Guile uses the Sonic Hurricane as his Critical Art and has another move called Sonic Tempest which deals slightly more damage than the Sonic Hurricane and which receives a damage and range boost when his V-Trigger is active. This ability can be contrasted with Charlie's Judgement Saber, which also uses Sonic Hurricane, but in a vertical manner by slamming behind his opponent's head after being engulfed in a dark mist.

Street Fighter 6 turns his Solid Puncher V-Trigger from Street Fighter V into his level 2 Super Art, brings back the Sonic Hurricane as level 1, and introduces a new Super Move in the form of the Crossfire Somersault, in which Guile sends the opponent into the air with a Flash Kick, maintains it in the sky with a charged Sonic Boom, and finishes it off with another Flash Kick. The Critical Art version, Crossfire Double Somersault, makes him ends the foe with a second Flash Kick.

Stage Themes



  • In the live action Street Fighter movie, Guile is given the full name of William F. Guile, with the military rank of colonel. Although Capcom did not canonize the name, it was also used in the US Street Fighter cartoon that was loosely based on the movie. However, in UDON's Street Fighter comic book, "Guile" is the character's first name. According to the official Street Fighter website, Guile has the USAF rank of Major at the time of Street Fighter IV.[20]
    • Guile is a noun meaning "insidious cunning in attaining a goal" or "crafty or artful deception".
    • Guile's dogtags in his Battle costume and Halloween costume have conflicting variations of the name, with one reading William F. Guile while the other reads Guile F. Williams.
  • Guile's birthday is on December 23, 1960.
    • The 1994 live action movie was released on that date.
    • Guile shares his birthday with Tiffany Lords from the Rival Schools series. He also shares his dislike for Natto with Tiffany.
  • The aircraft in Guile's background is a General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon.
    • Also, before it was established that Charlie taught him the move, it was said that the main reason for Guile's ability to use the Sonic Boom was because he is a fighter pilot and frequently broke the sound barrier when flying, developing the ability to use the special move as a result.
  • Guile is the only character in Street Fighter IV and Street Fighter V to have two air throws.
  • Guile's theme music in Street Fighter Alpha 3 bears a resemblance to A-ha's song "Take On Me".
  • Guile only listens to country music, according to his win quote against Dee Jay in Super Street Fighter IV.
  • Guile is one of the six characters from Street Fighter IV (the others being Cammy, C. Viper, Chun-Li, Ryu and Seth) to have a second rival in Super Street Fighter IV. His second rival is M. Bison.
  • Guile's wife was originally named Julia in the Japanese version and was localized as Jane overseas. His daughter was originally named Chris in the Japanese version and was localized as Amy overseas.

A developer oversight in his win quote

  • Early official artwork shows Guile having only one tattoo, though in-game, due to character sprites' left and right sights being mirrored, he has one on both sides. In later years after this was noticed, his artwork shows him with tattoos on both shoulders.
  • Guile is referenced in Project X Zone. In a pre-battle dialogue with Vashyron, Ken and Ryu states that they know a soldier who can use the Sonic Boom.
  • Guile's ending in Super Street Fighter II Turbo Revival seems to indicate that he was dreaming the entire time.
  • Guile is the only character in the entire series to have only two special moves. Every other character has at least three.
  • In 2017 Guile became the spokesman of J, a Japanese hair gel from Yanagiya. The gel's official site includes an interview with Guile, where he notes that he learned about the gel from Ken on a day he was having hair problems due to humidity.[21]
  • In Street Fighter X Tekken, if Guile loses to Ken, Ken says that he should "go home and be a family man." This is a reference to the former's win quote from Street Fighter II, as well as Guile's abandonment of his family to seek revenge on Bison.
    • In Ultra Street Fighter IV, if the exact opposite occurs, where Ken loses to Guile, Guile will also tell him to "go home and be a family man."
    • Referencing above in the same game, Guile will tell Ibuki in his win-quote to "go home and be a school girl."
    • The quote trades between Ken and Guile is somewhat an irony and a jab; Ken and Guile, brothers in-law, are both family men by the events of Street Fighter IV with Ken about to have a son, and Guile being married with a daughter.
    • In Street Fighter V, Dan uses Guile's famous quote against him.
  • Guile's victory quote in Street Fighter II was "Go home and be a family man"; in his ending, he reunited with his family, following his own advice.
  • Guile was originally envisioned as a rival for Zangief, referencing the former conflict between the USA and the Soviet Union.
  • In his own fighting stage (Carrier Byron Taylor), Guile appears as a non-playable character in Street Fighter 6, when he's not fighting in the stage.
    • In the first round, he appears parking his jet fighter, and jumping out of it, to talk with a subordinate.
    • In the second round, he gave his helmet for another subordinate, and makes an attention position for more one, before accompanying the fight.
