Shiba Ryu, Ibuki Tanuki, Spider Juri and more: Artist QuasimodoX re-imagines the Street Fighter cast as their spirit animals filled with puns

Capcom released a pack of animal skins as DLC for the world warriors back during the Street Fighter 4 days, but now we can see them fully personified by their inner beasts.

An artist known as QuasimodoX recently released a collection of sketches they made to show off the Street Fighter cast as their spirit animals which is both cute and hilarious at the same time.

Where else should we start than with our lead protagonist... Shiba Ryu — an obvious pun on the Japanese Shiba Inu breed of dog making our Hadouken thrower more fluffy and meme worthy.

There are a number of other punny beasts here too with Bull Bison, Viper Vega, Hippo Honda, Ibuki Tanuki and perhaps my favorite of the whole bunch in F.A.N.M.I.N.G.O.

There's also a few others that the fighting game community will likely appreciate with Monkey Ken pulling the banana hair off his head along with Lion Akuma, Gorilla Alex and Llama G.

QuasimodoX said he tried out this thematic exercise as a way to perhaps introduce more people to the Street Fighter cast since everyone likes animals. You can check out their full works in the gallery below.
