Street Fighter IVEdit

Prologue Edit

Ken: "Hmm... Damn... Now's just not the time."

Eliza: "Is something the matter?" (beat)

Eliza brings refreshments to Ken.

Ken: "No... It's nothing."

Eliza: "Isn't that the postcard that came this morning? (beat) Hey, are you hiding something from me?"

Ken: "No way!"


Eliza: "Oh! It's from Ryu! "Ready to keep your promise for a rematch?""

Ken: "I mean, of course I'm just gonna tell him to wait. Now's not the time. I was just about to write him back..."

Eliza: "We're talking about Ryu here. How would you get in touch with him?"

Ken: "Uhh..."

Eliza: "It may be faster to just go see him. You just got invited to another tournament, right? Why not stop by and get a few matches in while you're at it?"

Ken: "Eliza... honey..."

Eliza: "It's fine. The baby's not coming for a little while yet. Just be sure to tell him I said "hi", OK?"

Ken smiles.

Ending Edit

Ken: "Eliza, I'm home!"

Eliza: "Welcome back, Ken!"

Ken: "Was everything alright? How do you feel?"

Eliza: "Fine. Same goes for the bun in the oven. No problem at all! Well, did you get to see Ryu?"

Ken: "Yeah. But we had our hands full with the other fights. Couldn't give it our all. Still, it was good to spar with him again."

Eliza: "Great (beat) Oh! Hey!"

Ken: "Ah, nice kick! This one's destined to be a better fighter than dear ol' dad!"

Eliza: "Sure is... Sure is..."

Prologue Edit

"Yeah. Everything's going great. What about you? How'd the tests go? Great! Listen, take it easy, OK? When you go down steps, make sure you-What? Oh, I read it in a baby book. OK, OK. I'll back off. I love you too, Eliza. I'll call you again later."
*hangs up*
"Just think -Me, a dad! It feels like I'm dreaming. I guess it'll all feel pretty real once he's born, though. You and I used to just be plain old fighters, didn't we, Ryu? Then I up and got married and now I'm on the road to fatherhood. I wish I could say I felt the same way now as I did when we trained together, but things will definitely change from here on out. I'm feeling pretty strange here, Ryu. Change is good, but it can be scary too. I wonder what advice you'd have for me... Guess I'll just ask you in person!"

Ending Edit

  • "He's so small... Congratulations, mom! We were waitin' for ya, kiddo! Welcome to the Masters family!"

Arcade ModeEdit

  • "You've got potential, but you need to keep your head in the game."
  • "I knew walking into the ring that I'd humiliate you! And I did it my way!"

  • "Just who do you work for anyway? Keep in mind your answer will have consequences."
  • "Don't look so mad, kid! You're cuter when you're smiling!"
  • "Anyone ever say that you're a workaholic? Take a vacation once in a while!"
  • "I'm always up for a rough and tumble fight, dude!"
  • "You've really deepened my appreciation for boxing!"
  • "It'll take more than Sumo to take away my American title, friend!"
  • "You're getting too old for this. Have you thought about retiring?"
  • "You're not mad at me are you, master?"
  • "Don't get me wrong. I really like red. I just don't like it suits a ninja."
  • "Dude, you're looking a little crispy. I guess my moves don't mix well with oil."
  • "Alright! Alright! I won't treat you like a kid from now on. Happy?"
  • "Your days as an evil overlord are over! Don't show your face around here again!"
  • "What? No, it's me. Seriously. Just a stunt double? Gimme a break!"

  • "Haha, I like it! You got power, kid! Let's do it again sometime!"
  • "You didn't give it your all, did you? Were you afraid of my Hadokens?"

Ultra Street Fighter IVEdit

  • "Not bad! Looks like I just earned myself a new rival!"
  • "You know my moves, don't you? Why'd you just walk into 'em like that?"
  • "Natural ability is great, but it takes work to use it!"
  • "Phew! I bet that would make for one exciting replay!"

Arcade Intro (Paired with Ryu) Edit

  • Ryu: "The box seems to have a power over people. It creeps in, and makes them lose all sense of self. Is it possible that Pandora's Box is connected to the Satsui no Hado...?"
  • Narrator: "Ryu sets his sights on the Antarctic to discover the true nature of the box. Ken, worried about his friend, decided to accompany him."
  • Ken: "Guess there's no reasoning with you on this one, huh? Okay. I suppose I might as well tag along for the ride."

  • Ryu: "Hmm? You say something, Ken?"
  • Ken: "No. Nothing, nevermind..."

  • "Maybe you're a little overworked? You seem more sluggish than normal."
  • "Nothin' wrong with getting a little down and dirty! I used to be like you back in '82."
  • "Spitting fire is a cool trick. Mind teaching me how it's done?"

  • "You should go home and be a family man!...Hey, I guess that applies to me too!."

Tekken Edit

  • "Holy smoke, what else you got under there? You'd be cute if not for the chainsaws."
  • "You have to think with your head and not get too carried away. Remember that for our next fight!"
  • "You're a lot faster than you should be. Is that just a suit full of air or something?"
  • "You picked the wrong guy to start a fight with. I'm the one who always ends them."
  • "You've been old for, like, forever. What's the deal?"
  • "You remind me of the cartoons my son likes to watch. Don't you shoot lasers out of your eyes?"

  • "Greed will be your downfall...Read that on a fortune cookie once."
  • "You're an assassin hired by the Mishima Zaibatsu? Maybe they should ask for a refund..."
  • "Maybe if you'd take those sunglasses off you could see better?"
  • "You sure you're a ninja? You stick out like a whale in a goldfish pond."


  • " You know, you'd probably perform better if you cut the salt out from your diet. That stuff's killer."
  • "A cat. Walking around like a human. What’s next, a boxing kangaroo?"
  • "Maybe I shouldn't ask, but where'd you get that weird outfit?"
  • "Your fundamentals are all over the place! You need to go back to the training room!"
  • "I hope Eliza never catches wind that I just fought with a cat... I'd never hear the end of it..."
