Blanka Street Fighter 6 moves list, strategy guide, combos and character overview


Blanka was first confirmed to be a playable character in Street Fighter 6 on September 15, 2022. He was revealed alongside Dhalsim, E. Honda, and Ken in a full gameplay trailer at Tokyo Game Show 2022.

This electrifying combatant was first introduced to fans on February 6, 1991 as one of the original eight characters in Street Fighter 2: The World Warrior. He has made appearances in several other Street Fighter games including the Street Fighter Alpha series and Street Fighter 4, and even has some unexpected crossovers under his belt such as being a playable character in Fortnite.

In Street Fighter 6, Blanka has undergone one of the most significant design updates we've ever seen for the character. His overall anatomy and movement is almost ape-like, and ol' Jimmy now rocks a pair of blue overalls and a long hairdo that sees the sides of his head shaved.

This kindhearted beast now works as a tour guide in the Amazon. Blanka hopes this business will springboard him to fame, allowing him to provide a comfortable life for his mother.

Blanka retains a lot of what fans know and love him for in Street Fighter 6. He can still perform his Electric Thunder, fire off Beast Balls, Coward Crouch, and even hop to the other side of his opponents.

While Blanka has always been known for having a playstyle that revolves around trickery and gimmicks, one of his newest tools in Street Fighter 6 looks to take that to a whole new level. His Blanka-Chan Bomb special move sees Jimmy toss a Blanka-Chan plushie onto the screen, and when he strikes it with an electrical special move it will advance on the opponent in different ways before exploding allowing him to create scary mix ups and situations.

Blanka also has a new special move in his Aerial Rolling Attack. With this technique, he can perform a Beast Ball diagonally down from the air to quickly advance on the opponent and change his jump trajectory.
