Cody hates being lectured and Blanka specializes in unpredictable movement - Two old school classics show up in Capcom's new Street Fighter 5 profiles

Posted by Nicholas 'MajinTenshinhan' Taylor • June 1, 2016 at 8:22 a.m. PDT • Comments: 82

The latest two Street Fighter 5 character profiles detail my own personal main from Street Fighter 4, Cody, as well as perhaps the most hated character in Street Fighter 4, Blanka.

Both of these characters look a little bit different than last time we saw them, and if you're itching to learn more about the two, look no further. It's also worth mentioning that since neither of these characters were referenced in Street Fighter 3, this is the latest chronological look we have at the two, since Street Fighter 5 takes place after all of their previous appearances.

You can see Blanka's new look here.

Blanka's profile continues below, alongside Cody's image and profile.


He gained his electric powers in a battle with an electric eel! He unleashed fierce rolling body attacks!

(Those made for real painful counter hits back in the day...)

It's Blanka. His real name is Jimmy.

Basic info

Name: Blanka
Height: 6' 3 (192cm)
Weight: 216lbs (98kg)
Blood type: B
Birthday: 12th of February
Country of origin: Brazil

Ever since the airplane he was riding as a child crashed in the depths of the jungle, he's survived on his own as a child of the wilderness.

His specialty is making fun of his opponent and using unpredictable movement.

Oh, and the "Samantha" listed in his likes is his mother!

This time, it's the Final Fight protagonist, who brought down the crime organization Mad Gear with nothing but his fists (and knives, and steel pipes, and wooden swords).

This man knows all about beatdowns.

Basic info

Name: Cody
Height: 6' 0 (185cm)
Weight: 176lbs (80kg)
Blood type: O
Birthday: 18th of April
Country of Origin: U.S.A.

Once, he was the hero who saved Metro City, but unable to adjust to a peaceful life, he was imprisoned after being involved in numerous violent events.

He's very well-versed in using knives. He has a younger brother named Kyle.
