Biography[edit | edit source]
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Juri wears a purple dudou (a form of Chinese bra top) on her chest supported with eight straps that meet on her back, forming a spider pattern. She wears long, baggy, off-white colored sweat pants and purple tights, and long, fingerless gloves. Her fingernails and toenails are painted bright pink. She has dark hair styled into two horn-like bangs at the top of her head, which appear to be fastened with pink ribbons. She wears Taekwondo foot wraps on her feet.
Her left eye was damaged long ago (explained below) and replaced with the Feng Shui Engine which amplifies her abilities.
In Street Fighter V, she is wearing a purple and pink collared catsuit with a spider-shaped pattern in the back, with a black high-neck sleeveless top underneath, black fingerless gloves with pink designs, the pants from her catsuit have black inlines with dark purple and pink. She also has a black eyepatch with a magenta pattern on her left eye.
Her first alternate costume is a blue-green winter jacket, pink and white pants, black knee-high boots, and matching gloves. She doesn't wear her eye patch in this costume, as her story mode appearance in this outfit occurs before Bison ripped out the Feng Shui Engine. Her second costume is somewhat similar to her primary outfit in Super Street Fighter IV, her dudou is white, her trousers are black with pink and white outlines and wears matching black taekwondo ankle wraps on her feet, her hair is down and her bangs are dyed pink.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Juri fights purely for the thrill of the battle; unlike Ryu, who seeks meaning, her drive is much more vengeful, selfish and ruthless, as she's extremely sadistic, liking to inflict pain on her foes, and she's also extremely hot-tempered, as she can easily lose her temper when she is struck back in retaliation without warning. Juri loves combat to the point where she becomes irritated when it is denied to her like when Rashid refused to fight her seriously Juri said "he could just die" if that was the case. She displays several traits of a femme fatale, as she makes provocative and suggestive remarks toward her enemies, as well seen in her win quotes; she is also very cunning, as she is not above leaving her partners to further her own agenda. At times, she appears to be brooding and depressed, Menat claimed she felt a sense of "loneliness" from Juri implying all her wiles and cruelty is just a cover for how broken she is on the inside.
However, despite her vengeful and ruthless behavior, she still has some vague sense of honor; during her mission (in the Super Street Fighter IV OVA), she left a young boy alive despite many civilians being caught in the crossfire. Juri also appears to detest fighting children, and views Evil Ryu to be a far more abhorrent type of ruthlessness, which somewhat contradicts her opinion on other Ansatsuken users. According to her win quote against Blanka in Street Fighter V, she is against animal cruelty. Juri is also slightly hypocritical, or feels the need to mask her pain. She mocks the suffering of Cammy and Decapre at the hands of Bison despite having gone though similar pain in her childhood. But then always returns to help them in their times of need. Juri also calls Vega a "pervert" despite her also taking sexual delight in hurting others. This seems to provide enough evidence that Menat was right about her.
Juri may also have been the first openly bisexual character in Street Fighter lore. Her listed interests upon her release originally included Spicy food, spiders and large breasts before being changed to only spicy food and spiders. Despite this, her flirtatious nature with both genders remains, particularly with both Cammy and Chun-Li, the latter of which she claims has a "schoolgirl crush" on her.
Concept[edit | edit source]
Super Street Fighter IV's development team was instructed to make a female Korean character in response to many Korean fans who wished for Capcom to add a Korean character in Street Fighter - something already established by SNK and Namco in their respective fighting game franchises. According to Capcom senior staff member Yoshinori Ono, the team had planned to include a Korean character since soon after Street Fighter II became popular in Korea but the Korean government had a strict limitation against the Japanese language and culture, preventing them from including such a character. However, other competitors' fighting games (released some time shortly after Street Fighter II), such as SNK's Fatal Fury and Namco's Tekken, have had Korean characters, so it is unclear if this excuse is accurate.
The designers toyed with many different ideas, totaling between 400 and 500 variations of the character's appearance; there were hundreds of concept designs for Juri, including an overweight version and one that used mixed martial arts. Design Director Kami said regarding Juri: "From the start, we felt like, 'let's make her an evil, sexy character'."
The creators decided to give Juri a strong, unusual personality to make her a character which people will either love or hate. Juri was designed to be a member of S.I.N. in order to associate her with the Street Fighter IV characters; thus, the Feng Shui Engine was created to give her a strong connection with S.I.N. The creators thought about putting the engine in her abdomen (like Seth's Tanden Engine), but as this looked unattractive, they ended up putting it in her eye.
An idea early in development was to have her in a tragic love story, caught up with the wrong people. However, once this was put to Yoshinori Ono, he responded: "No way, that's no good, she can't be a good girl. Surprise everyone and make her a really evil chick." They also chose to make a spider Juri's trademark, explaining the spider-web design on her top and her nickname, Spider. Her behavior and personality are also typically likened to that of a female "spider", as many species are known in particular for eating their mates.
Taekwondo had not been used by any character in the Street Fighter series before, so they decided that it would be a great chance to make Juri a practitioner. Juri's outfit was designed specifically so that her silhouette would look like a traditional Taekwondo outfit, but they gave her bright colors and unique designs to differentiate her from the rest of the cast.
Juri can be interpreted as a "dark mirror image" of Chun-Li. Both had their parent(s) killed by M. Bison and, subsequently, swore a vendetta against him. The main difference is that Chun-Li maintains a strong sense of justice even while seeking to punish the Dictator, whereas Juri is willing to hurt anybody and everybody who gets in the way of her quest for revenge. Notably, another character designed after Chun-Li in Capcom's works holds greater similarities to Juri, being that of the character June Lin Milliam of Star Gladiator, whose vendetta was more rooted in vengeance and retribution out of bereavement out of the death of both parents and whose character is themed with a butterfly motif.
It should also be noted that aspects of Juri's design, such as her hair and chestwear, seem to resemble Jolyne Cujoh from the manga/anime series JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. In addition, Juri has a spider motif and cleaves a butterfly in her official artwork; Jolyne has a butterfly motif (and clothes with a spider-web pattern) and her Stand turns her body into threads and webs. Juri even has the same "ora ora ora" battle cry as Jolyne and other members of her family when using Fuharenjin. Coincidentally, Jolyne's voice actress in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle and Eyes of Heaven (licensed games developed by CyberConnect2 and distributed by Bandai Namco Entertainment), Miyuki Sawashiro, also voices Cammy in Street Fighter IV and V. Eri Kitamura, Juri's Japanese voice actress, also voices Yasuho Hirose in the same games.
Character interactions[edit | edit source]
Juri and Chun-Li have a strong rivalry. Chun-Li has tried to arrest Juri at least twice, including when Juri captures and brutalizes the Dolls, despite originally expressing disdain at having to fight women.
Unlike Chun-Li's hatred for her and all criminals, Juri does not seem to hate Chun-Li as much as she does enjoy toying and mocking her, even suggesting at some point that Chun-Li has a "schoolgirl crush" on her.
In Project X Zone, Chun-Li sees that Juri still has some good in her. After that, Juri would accept the offer to join the other heroes to save the universe. Given this, Juri may be the only criminal that Chun-Li doesn't hold any true contempt for.
Cammy[edit | edit source]
Juri and Cammy initially had a mutual contempt for each other. Cammy bore a grudge against Juri for what she did to her "sisters", the Dolls, while Juri claimed that Cammy was sinful because of what she did in the past, before she lost her memory.
But during the story mode in Street Fighter V, Juri saved Cammy and Decapre from the police and earned the former's thanks, though Cammy still hadn't forgiven her and warned not to hurt her "sisters" ever again. Juri was much less hostile, even fighting off Vega for her and in the process saving her. Later she helped Cammy and the Dolls in the final battle against Shadaloo, once again, along with Decapre, helping save Cammy from Vega. She is shown during the ending standing triumphantly with Cammy and the rest of the Dolls. It is assumed she doesn't consider the dolls hostile anymore since the fall of Shadaloo and that given Juri's actions, Cammy no longer holds the contempt she once did for her.
Juri hates M. Bison with a passion, as his organization was responsible for the murder of her parents and the loss of her left eye, and she constantly plots to destroy him. Conversely, M. Bison regards Juri as he does many of his usurping 'pawns', if not most of his foes in general: a minor nuisance at worst. In spite of this, Juri and Bison are shown about to engage in another fight in M. Bison's ending, after Juri threatens that Bison should be less worried about where her special eye came from, and more about what she is about to do to him with it.
Juri met Rashid thanks to Helen bringing him and Charlie to the Illuminati meeting, Juri immediately challenged Rashid to a fight, but Rashid had no interest in fighting her. Disappointed, Juri stated if he didn't take her seriously she'd have to kill him but Helen stopped them before the situation became serious.
Kolin[edit | edit source]
During Street Fighter V, Kolin and Juri seem to have a somewhat professional relationship since they had a common enemy to take down, M. Bison as well as Shadaloo. Both characters are not truly evil, as they both are just willing to go to great, and often questionable, lengths to achieve their goals; with Kolin wanting to help her lord Gill achieve a prophecy and Juri wanting to take down those who have harmed her in the past.
Seth[edit | edit source]
Juri sees Seth as a pawn in her attempt to get revenge for the murder of her parents, despite the perverse joy she displays in working for him and brutally dealing with the enemies of S.I.N. Seth is well aware of this as shown in his ending.
Vega[edit | edit source]
As seen in A Shadow Falls, Juri sees Vega as a "pervert" due to his obsession with beauty, though this is quite hypocritical given her own interactions with other male fighters. Vega on the other hand appears to feel genuinely attracted to Juri's beauty and psychopathic tendencies, calling her the "personification of evil beauty itself" in his SSFIV win quote against her, though he dislikes her provocations, saying that she lacks "delicacy".
Story[edit | edit source]
Early History[edit | edit source]
At the age of 15, Juri was the preeminent practitioner of Tae Kwon Do. Her father was a lawyer in charge of prosecuting organized crime operations. When he started targeting Shadaloo, her family was kidnapped by the organization. During the ordeal, Juri lost her parents and her left eye was gravely wounded.
Ten years later, she undergoes an operation at the S.I.N. laboratory to have the Feng Shui Engine implanted into that eye. The people operating on her note her calmness during the implanting. Juri assassinates operatives in a public area as her first mission in order to test out the Feng Shui Engine. Even with guns, her enemies stand no chance against her, taking them out one by one from behind. Chun-Li was called to the scene to stop the massacre. Chun-Li rushes into the scene to arrest Juri, and arrives just as Juri killed the gunmen using her Feng Shui Engine from the inside of a building. A woman dies in the attack from collateral damage. Juri and Chun-Li battle, ending with Juri unleashing her eye's power and knocking out Chun-Li. As her victim lays on the ground, Juri prepares to deal the finishing blow. However, her Feng Shui Engine malfunctions, forcing her to flee back to the lab.
After getting it fixed, Seth assigns Juri her next mission: capturing M. Bison's elite female assassins, the Dolls. Juri flies to the base of the Dolls with several S.I.N. employees. She manages to defeat every single assassin in combat, including Juli and Juni. As she carries the two unconscious assassins away to an S.I.N. plane, Cammy and Guile arrive.
They have a heated fight, but Juri comes out on top and manages to incapacitate Guile. She boards her plane and straps Juni and Juli to beds with wheels. As it takes off, Cammy manages to jump and grab onto the open boarding ramp, and confronts Juri for one final time. After an intense conflict, Juri pushes one of the rolling tables (with Juni on it) which collides with Cammy, who both fall off the boarding ramp into mid-air. They survive the fall, with snow breaking their fall.
Juri flies off and is congratulated by Seth upon returning. She licks her lips in anticipation, sensing that S.I.N and Shadaloo will clash in the very near future.
- "I just wanted to pit you two idiots together while I took over."
- —Juri Han, referring to Seth and Bison
During the global tournament hosted by Seth, he sends Juri in to participate; she sees it as a perfect opportunity for some 'fun.' During the tournament, Juri is confronted by Cammy and Chun-Li again; the results of the fights are unknown. Juri continues to tend to her hidden agenda.
In her ending, she approaches Seth, who was incapacitated as a result of Bison's brutal beating, and taunts him for "being nothing more than Bison's spare body." Before she is to dispose of him, she reveals that she was to serve S.I.N. for as long as it suited her purposes, since she was merely trying to pit Seth and Bison against each other - a task Seth obviously was not up to. Juri viciously crushes Seth's Tanden Engine by stomping on it, and leaves him for dead.
On October 2015, a datamining of Street Fighter V's PC beta test revealed fighter data and character meshes of Juri, Dhalsim, Ibuki, Alex, Urien, Guile and Balrog. Juri and the rest of the characters (except for Dhalsim who was confirmed earlier as a default fighter) were later confirmed on December 5th, 2015 at the PlayStation Experience.
Shortly after the fall of S.I.N., Juri faces off against Bison again to avenge her family. However, Bison quickly gets behind her, attacks her with Psycho Power and grabs her head. He rips out her Feng Shui Engine and leaves her for dead. She goes into an abandoned S.I.N. laboratory and finds another eye, the Feng Shui Engine Alpha. Juri meets up with Kolin (under the disguise as Helen). Kolin offers Juri the ability to join her, when they are interrupted by Balrog, who's looking around for S.I.N. agents. Wanting to test out her new eye, Juri fights him, before Ed tells him that they have to get back to base to discuss a plan. Juri later meets C. Viper, who informs her that the only reason she's not in jail is because she is not the primary threat and warns her about Shadaloo's motives.
Later at the Shadaloo base, looking around for data on Shadaloo, Juri confronts F.A.N.G., who becomes insulted by her remarks on being Bison's second in command. Their fight ends with F.A.N.G using his poison clouds to make Juri retreat. Juri now realizing their motives, calls Kolin by phone and finally accepts her offer to take down Shadaloo.
When Rashid and Azam meet Charlie Nash and Helen, Juri arrives by kicking open the door. She eyes the other people in her team and decides to fight Rashid, which he is reluctant about. Juri overwhelms him and he tells her to stop fighting. Juri threatens to kill him if he won't fight her seriously, at which point Azam steps in to defend Rashid. Helen breaks up the conflict and explains the danger of the Black Moons and presents a plan to stop Shadaloo. Juri shows interest in the plan and joins.
In Brazil, When Cammy defends Decapre by assaulting police officers, Juri arrives by motorbike and rams an officer. She picks up Cammy and Decapre, finding the situation amusing. Juri later watches with amusement as Cammy and Decapre (who is under the influence of the Psycho Power) fight before Cammy knocks Decapre out. When Vega arrives and defeats Cammy, Juri intervenes, calling Vega a pervert and mocks him. She fights him off and Vega decides to leave temporarily. She brings Cammy back to Russia with her team as they plan their final attack on Shadaloo.
During the final assault on Shadaloo, Juri and Decapre arrive to take on Shadaloo's soldiers. Decapre saves Cammy from Vega's claw. They team up to fight the other Dolls, who are still under the influence of the Psycho Power, who are controlled by F.A.N.G.
Other character story appearances[edit | edit source]
Juri appears at the end of Cammy's character story. She is shown to be listening in on a conversation between Cammy and Juni, as Cammy swears to free the other dolls no matter the cost. Juri then comments on how "things are getting interesting".
In Guile's character story, Juri is spotted by Guile and Abel at the abandoned S.I.N. Laboratory, taunting them and stating that they should see what Shadaloo is up to before leaving.
In Abigail's character story, as he is constantly screaming about himself feeling "flat", Juri hears him and accuses him of calling her flat, believing that he "insulted her curves", and threatens to make him flat. Ultimately, Juri loses the fight and Abigail said that she got "wrecked".
In Seth's character story, she recovers the salvaged brain of former S.I.N. leader Seth, and places his brain in the latest model known as "Doll Unit Zero". Despite the warning, she boots the system immediately.
Crossover appearances[edit | edit source]
Juri is a playable character in Street Fighter X Tekken.
In the fifth CG trailer, she is seen defeating Ling Xiaoyu during Bison's raid on Mishima Zaibatsu. Juri kicks Xiaoyu into Jin Kazama's office, where Jin is fighting off Bison. Seeing Xiaoyu being beaten down causes Jin to give in to the power of the Devil Gene, and he quickly grabs Juri by her head, but hesitates to finish her off as he is trying to regain control of his body. Juri takes the opportunity to activate her Feng Shui Engine and kick Jin away, and Bison intervenes and strikes Jin down, using his trademark Psycho Crusher to finish him off. However, Jin is finally transformed by his Devil Gene as both stare at him, intimidated by his power.
Juri and Bison's ending is similar to that of fellow Shadaloo members Vega and Balrog. Bison begins harnessing Pandora and plans to take over the world. While he is seemingly distracted, Juri attempts to strike him down. Bison easily avoids her attack by teleporting above her, and tells her that he knew all along what she was up to, mocking her predictability. As the tension mounts, the power of Pandora awakens within them and the two begin charging at each other. The screen then fades to black. After defeating M. Bison, she falls under the evil influence of Pandora, and goes to fight in many tournaments around the world against other fighters, eventually getting the attention of many tournament hosts around the world to want her to fight for them.
In Namco's crossover RPG for the 3DS, Juri appears along with Seth, Alisa Boscovonitch and Dural as a rival unit, and later switches to the hero side to become a solo unit along with Heihachi Mishima and Alisa after Seth planned to use her Feng Shui Engine for his plans of world conquest.
Juri also returns in the sequel, once again as a rival unit, this time apparently working for M. Bison. While it is not known whether or not working for Bison was her choice, she remains allied with Bison throughout the story, and thus never fights alongside the party.
Comics[edit | edit source]
UDON comics[edit | edit source]
Juri appears in UDON's Super Street Fighter: New Generations comics. As a teenager, she is not yet a capable Taekwando fighter and is being trained by her instructor during a sparing match. Her parents are present during her defeat and she is lectured by her mother for not showing much improvement. Her father is called by fellow prosecutors relating to the prosecution of Shadaloo and M. Bison. Juri had dinner with her parents where she learns of her father plans to prosecute members of Shadaloo, he tells her that this job is important and it is his duty to convict these criminals just as it is her duty not to let down the Han family.
Juri feels pressured by her parents expectation of her during their dinner, she travels with her parents to see her father off at the airport; however, their car is suddenly attacked by Shadaloo at the request of Bison himself. A stray round caught Juri in the left eye and left her comatose for a month. Upon awakening, she found out that her mother was murdered by Shadaloo and her father was taken and ransomed by Bison, and later was murdered by him live on camera after his ransom was not paid by the South Korean government.
Five months after the assassination of the Han family, Juri fell into a deep depression and developed an immense hatred for Bison. While planning her revenge, she tells her master to teach her everything he knows. Her prowess in later years would catch the interest of Seth and S.I.N.
During a mission for Seth, she brings back a necklace related to a company that has been hidden throughout the world for years, and a case; Seth tells her that the necklace belongs to the Secret Society. As he opens the case, he finds out that the Society has been following him by using a tracking device inside the case, and Bison and other members of the Society have come to reclaim what is rightfully theirs.
When Seth was defeated, Juri was told that the Society's ruler wants her to join them. Seeing this as the perfect time to achieve her revenge against Bison, she agrees to his side of working for the Society in hopes of taking Bison out at the right time.
As Guile, Alex, and Dan are out to stop the Society, Guile is fighting against Bison in hopes of bringing him to justice. Juri attacked Bison as well, with various combo attacks. Before she deals the fatal final blow, Bison's appearance changes into Twelve. He begins to attack her as his hands turn into claws. After the battle, Bison flees. As he escapes, Juri goes after him, and at some point, she is visited by C. Viper, who wished to recruit her. In response, Juri told her that she is done with working for S.I.N., Shadaloo, the Secret Society or any other organization that has taken a notice to her power. C. Viper told her that her revenge to restore the Han family is still possible. Juri then decided to listen to her.
She helped her out with her quest in order to find out about the DOLLS and the connection between Shadaloo and the Secret Society who used her to their plains, she was going after one of other DOLLS that was with Delta Blue, but was knocked out by the Shadaloo member F.A.N.G.
He bought her back to their hideout, as she awoken, F.A.N.G told that Shadaloo has been planing on capturing her at some point, and that the Engine inside of her is actually connected to Psycho Power and the Satsui no Hado, he plain to use her and the DOLLS who all had Psycho Power inside them they captured from Delta Blue as way to complete Bison's newest body, as Cammy, Viper, and Delta Blue were out to rescue Juri and the DOLLS from F.A.N.G, it was too late as Bison's soul went into a new body, they base they were in was going to be destroyed, Cammy was able to save the knocked out Juri and the DOLLS, but Bison, F.A.N.G, and many of his henchmen were able to escape, letting them savor their rescue mission until Shadaloo is ready to take over the world, after this event, she finds out more information about the connection between Bison and Gill's companies and how they tie to each other for their plains of world conquest in the Shadaloo special.
Juri makes a cameo appearance in the comic crossover Street Fighter VS. Darkstalkers.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Fighting style[edit | edit source]
Juri fights using Taekwondo and like most practitioners of the Korean martial art in fighting games (e.g. Kim Kaphwan from Fatal Fury/The King of Fighters and Hwoarang from Tekken), Juri is an offensive-oriented, general rushdown character whose moveset mostly focuses on various kicks; she is a very flashy fighter who likes to toy with her opponent, and is used best in bursts of aggression or playing footsies.
Moveset[edit | edit source]
Juri "roughs up" many traditional Tae Kwon Do moves by putting her own sadistic spin on them, as well as throwing in a few of her own moves. She is designed to be a hectic character with fast attacks that keep her opponents off guard; as such, she is weak defensively, and many of her moves can leave her open if blocked. She was created to be a very hard character to learn, yet very rewarding once fully mastered.
Juri has a short-range projectile that she can choose to charge in a method similar to Balrog's Turn Punch or El Fuerte's Quesadilla Bomb. If she chooses to charge it, she does a high kick that leaves a trail of energy which will hit very close opponents or cancel out approaching projectiles if timed correctly. Juri can then unleash her fireball/projectile at any time after that by releasing the button, either immediately or much later in the match. She also possesses an aerial dive kick that moves at several ranges depending on the kick button pressed, and can be followed up with more kicks, unlike most dive kicks.
Her most notable technique is her pinwheel kick, which moves her forward as she does a wheel kick similar to Guile's Flash Kick and Chun-Li's Spinning Bird Kick. Juri also has a counter move known as Kasatushi, in which she taunts her enemy into hitting her, and if the opponent strikes, Juri will either move backwards, jump into the air (and optionally react with an air attack), or dart behind her opponent..
Juri's Super Combo, Fuharenjin, has her unleash a flurry of fireballs that juggles the opponent, ending with a fireball that hits the opponent in the air diagonally. Her first Ultra Combo is Feng Shui Engine, which is a time-based move that allows her to chain together combos with her normal moves that ordinarily wouldn't combo together via the power of Juri's eponymous eye. Her second Ultra Combo is Kaisen Dankairaku (chosen more often due to its easier use and direct damage), where Juri kicks the opponent, follows up with a multi-hit helicopter kick, and then kicks her opponent to the ground. Using the Feng Shui Engine's power, she gets to the ground before they land, "catches" them with one last kick, and then slams her opponent to the ground.
In Street Fighter V, Juri maintains her moves. Her V-Trigger is the Feng Shui Engine (alpha); she chains her combos to her opponent. Her Critical Art is the Sakkai Fuhazan; Juri unleashes a devastating heel drop to inflict multiple hits on her opponent.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Juri is the only character to use a four-button Kick system (Her Fierce Punch button is substituted as another Roundhouse Kick).
- Her Shikusen has follow up moves called "Second Impact" and "Third Strike", a reference to the last two games in the Street Fighter III sub series.
- Juri's seductive behavior as well as her association with spiders is most likely based on the Jorogumo mythlogy of a demon female spider who seduces her victims into holding a spider egg for her before she devours her victims. Said association could also be a nod to the Western beliefs of spiders being manipulators who deceive and trap others.
- Additionally, her name written in Hanja contains the Chinese character for spider (蛛).
- Yoshinori Ono commented that Capcom faced some criticism over Juri's appearance. Fan reaction to Juri in South Korea, her home country, has been less than positive. Critics claim, among other complaints, that Juri looks too much like Chun-Li and shares similar moves.
- Juri's Feng Shui Engine is associated with the Yin-Yang, the symbol of balance and light and darkness.
- Juri shares the same birthday (New Year's Day) as Batsu Ichimonji from the Rival Schools series and Mai Shiranui from the Fatal Fury and The King of Fighters series.
- Juri's official measurements in Street Fighter IV were B83/W56/H85. Her official weight was 46kg, about 25 pounds lighter than she is in Street Fighter V. When her bio was first posted on Street Fighter IV's official Japanese web site, her bust was listed as 75cm before it was edited to 83cm. "Big breasts" were also listed as being among her favorite things, but it was later removed.
- Despite Juri's midfight banter in Street Fighter X Tekken talking about how much she enjoys pain and how she wants her opponent to hit her harder. Ironically, Juri is actually a low health character in said game. This means she actually can take less damage than most of the cast before she is defeated.
