MrTopTenList gives out his top 10 evil doppelgangers in fighting games

Heroes are nice and all but an evil version is always cool

For every action, there is an opposite and equal reaction. That is the law of nature. We see most fighting games have a main character then a clone or doppelganger who is evil.

In the same vein, for every hero, there's always a villain. How many times does a fighting game story succeed where there is only a protagonist and no antagonist?

So many days we get to the end of the story mode, we are juiced to see who is standing there waiting for battle. Oftentimes, it turns out that it's just an evil version of the main character waiting.

Many times we arrive and boom there it is. From Devil Jin, to Evil Ryu, it's often the darker version of our characters.

It seems many developers take the whole "my only competition is in the mirror" to heart. MrTopTenList gives us his top 10 evil versions of fighting game characters.

Sitting at the top of the list is Devil Jin. Always top tier in every game he's in essentially, it was apparent this was a given.

What do you think of the list? Are there any omissions or characters left off you think shouldn't have been?
