Unlike the Marvel-themed season that revolved around a single massive collaboration, Chapter 2 Season 5 of Fortnite has facilitated a multitude of small collaborations up till now. From Kratos to the Mandalorian, several bounty hunters from different franchises have arrived in the game already. While some of these new skins are a part of this season’s Battle Pass, others were available in the Item Shop for a limited time.
The latest franchise to join forces with Fortnite for the bounty hunter season is Street Fighter. The popular fighting video game series by Capcom is not only its best-selling venture, but has even laid the foundation for the one-on-one fighting game genre.
Epic Games recently announced the arrival of Chun-Li and Ryu in Fortnite, leaving fans in a state of frenzy. The developers even released a trailer where Agent Jonesy kidnapped both the characters from a fight and teleported them to the island.
Chun-Li and Ryu are easily two of the most popular fighting game characters ever. Naturally, their arrival in Fortnite has gained a lot of attention from fans around the world.

Machine Pistol, on Twitter, posted a meme about Fortnite fans claiming that Ryu belongs to their game.
The picture not only portrayed the player as a child but also showcased a fighter thinking of casually annihilating him.
It comes as no surprise that the tweet triggered a lot of Fortnite players. Furthermore, it led to a heated argument amongst fans of both the franchises on Twitter.
A Street Fighter patron further aggravated the matter by making fun of Fortnite players for being easily offended.
On the flip side, a fan talked about how it is unjustified to mock the younger generation for lack of information on Street Fighter. Even though the video game series was huge at its peak, many people are unaware of it currently.
Here are some of the funniest replies by Street Fighter and Fortnite fans.
The back and forth between fans of both the games was hilarious, to say the least. Considering the aforementioned drama around the characters, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Chun-Li and Ryu end up being tremendous hits in the Item Shop. As for now, the Fortnite community looks forward to witnessing more such iconic characters in the game.
