It was quite a momentous birthday for one of the most famous female fighting game characters in the world, Chun-Li. Originally appearing in Street Fighter II: The World Warrior, March 1st marked the Chinese Interpol officer’s 50th birthday.

The official Street Fighter Twitter account and several others have posted celebratory art and cosplay:

Also, last year, XusesGB made a “History and Evolution of Chun-Li” video that showcased her different looks and attacks across the library of games she starred in:

And finally, from the Shoryuken staff, we wish the warrior with the strongest thighs in the world a happy 50th birthday and many, many more opponents to kick down in the future.
