    Note: I originally posted this in a different forum a long time ago. I have since updated it.

    I wanted to see people's timelines in fighting games by the mains they settled on for each title they played. I'll do mine as an example.

    Fatal Fury: Terry Bogard
    Mortal Kombat: Scorpion
    Time Killers: Rancid
    Samurai Shodown (Entire Series): Ukyo

    Darkstalkers (Entire Series): Jon Talbain
    X-Men Children of the Atom: Wolverine
    King of Fighters '94: Team Italy
    Mortal Kombat 3: Smoke
    Marvel Super Heroes: Wolverine
    Street Fighter Alpha: Charlie
    X-Men vs. Street Fighter: Wolverine and Charlie
    Street Fighter Alpha (2 & 3): Sakura

    Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter: Wolverine and Sakura
    Street Fighter III (New Generation & 2nd Impact): Ibuki
    Tekken 3: Paul
    Marvel vs. Capcom: Wolverine and Captain America

    Marvel vs. Capcom 2: Guile, Iron Man, and Wolverine
    Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance: Scorpion
    Super Smash Bros. Brawl: Samus
    Street Fighter IV: Sakura
    Super Street Fighter IV (AE & Ver. 2012): Makoto
    BlazBlue (Calamity Trigger & Continuum Shift): Noel Vermillion
    Mortal Kombat 9: Stryker
    Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (Vanilla & Ultimate): X-23, Dr. Doom, and Deadpool
    King of Fighters XIII: King, Mai, and Terry Bogard
    Street Fighter X Tekken: Juri and Asuka
    Skullgirls: Painwheel and Cerebella
    Persona 4 Arena: Chie
    Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Asuka and Jun
    Dead or Alive 5: Mila
    Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus (R): A.B.A
    Injustice: Harley Quinn
    Yatagarasu: Hanzo
    Divekick: Dr. Shoals
    BlazBlue Chrono Phantasma: Bullet
    Ultra Street Fighter IV: Decapre

    As far as what they have in common, well, I like playing rushdown, preferably with decent speed and mixup. The last few years, I've shifted toward using females, usually those with some sort of tomboy or alt angle to them (except Tekken, where being normal is the alternative). I usually start with a character's design and then see if the gameplay feel works for me. I stay pretty loyal until that character changes or a new one catches my attention.

    How 'bout you?

    my character preferences are solely on what i look for.

    which is purely rushdown mixup. or can be defensive mixup but i like learning stances and how to use certain stances and what not.

    Uh gee I don't really play fighters much so for some games I'll just go with what I use most (just note for most of these games I gave no clue what I'm doing so I don't consider them my main. I'll mark those in bold.)

    Blazblue: Nu
    Smash Bros: Kirby
    Skullgirls: Fortune/whatever stupid assist I decide to use that month/double(or rather just bomber itself I don't know how to use her)

    Pretty sure a lot of these characters play differently, I dunno I'm not sure how fighters even work. I'm also not sure if I should add games that I only played for a few days. What exactly constitutes a "main" anyway?

    I don't think it takes a genius to figure out what character I usually go for in any fighting game. By not having a "true" shoto, SG forced me to mix it up a bit.

    Skullgirls: Parasoul/Filia/Cerabella (can also play Fukua)

    Wasn't too big in the fighting game genre outside of super smash bros till i eventually found Skullgirls. I didn't spend much time on SF2 and MKT when i was a kid. Some of em i listed is what i mainly used then compared to a more relative time. Charizard was only used against boss fights.

    In order of my playing them (I think...):

    Soul Calibur 2: Maxi
    Melee: Marth
    Soul Calibur 3: Ninja Class Kunai
    Brawl: Ike
    MvC3: Dante, <whoever I felt like using>, Sentinel
    SF3: Makoto
    Skullgirls: Valentine
    SF4: Gen
    Persona 4 Arena: Naoto
    BlazBlue: Tager
    UMvC3: Dante, <whoever I felt like using>, Strider
    Project M: Ganondorf, Mario, Mewtwo (in order of my skill with them from 1st to 3rd)
    Injustice: Catwoman
    Divekick: Kick

    On average, I appear to lean towards rushdown, but I randomly main zoners and grapplers in a handful of games. I think Project M is a good example of how varied my mains tend to be, as I am almost equally skilled with a shoto, a slow hard hitter, and a melee-attack-based zoner with a teleport.

    As far as I care, a main is just any character you play/want to play the most. I'm terrible at DOA5; I haven't put much time in it. But, I can tell you whenever I do, I'll pick Mila.

    The point of this is two fold. First, to see what other FG's the people here got into. Second, to get them to think about the trends and tendencies in their character selection.

    The King of Fighters 2002: Unlimited Match: Vanessa / Foxy / Leona / Hinako / Shermie / Krizalid / Goenitz
    Super Street Fighter IV: played a LOT of characters but clearly gravitate towards Juri and Seth
    Arcana Heart 3: Maori / Clarice / Yoriko (very short-lived. much to my chagrin, I can't play this game AT ALL)
    Marvel vs Capcom 3: Team 1: Dante, Morrigan and Trish / Team 2: Wesker, She-Hulk and Hsien-ko
    Max Anarchy: Nikolai / Mathilda / Douglas / Fei-Rin
    Skullgirls: Parasoul (Napalm Pillar) & Cerebella (H LNL) duo to evolve into either Eliza/Parasoul duo or Eliza/Parasoul/Bella trio

    In the horizon:
    Ultra SFIV - Juri / Seth
    Guilty Gear Xrd - Faust / I-no
    Persona 4 Ultimax - Yukiko / Kanji / Adachi / Mitsuru

    I played a lot of fighting games but sadly didn't learn much from it besides muscle memory with the motions and whatnot. I'm much better at SG than I've ever been at any other game and that still isn't saying much.
    As for tendencies, well, I always went for what I thought looked cooler or was more fun so picks are all over the place. However, when it comes to move sets, I favor characters with good pokes/footsies and the more deliberate types that hit harder. In fact, my original intention in SG was to run Val/Bella but me and rushdown is just not meant to be.
    And yeah, I loved picking cheap ass boss characters. :P

    Oh that's easy for me, I like to pick female or weird characters and by weird I mean I'm the type of guy to pick Arakune in Blazblue. I hate to pick people based on teirs like how MvC3 tournaments are dominated by like 4 people (don't quote me on this just making an example) based on specific set of skills they have over say Rocket Raccoon (who I love) I also tend to pick kawaii over sexy females.

    Without rambling the better question is do people psychologically pick characters based on preferences in their own lives or past, I do
    I pick female characters 1.Because coming up as a young boy in the 90's,games were filled with tons of males and cartoons didn't have to many female protagonists 2.My first friend was this young girl who helped shaped the person I became and 3. Females heavily influenced my life both good and bad. Shuma was the first character I ever used in any fighting game that's why I like weird characters. I might just write an article or post later on the psychology of our fighting game choices.

    The only games I took any kind of seriously were Tekken 2/3, Soul Calibur II, and Skullgirls. So the other characters are generally who I played the most and likely would have main'd had I put anything more than casual time in. There are also huge gaps. I became more of a PC gamer and stopped playing FG entirely, so my list is likely smaller than Elky's (Jesus Christ man!).

    Tekken 2 & 3: Lei Wulong
    Tekken 6: Zafina/Lei Wulong
    MK 2009: Smoke/Mileena
    MK 1: Sub-Zero
    MK 2: Reptile/Baraka
    MK 3+: Jade/Katana
    Soul Calibur II+: Ivy/Voldo
    Smash Bros: Princess Zelda
    SG: Painwheel (and now some Squigly)
    Street Fighter II: Blanka
    Street Fighter IV: El Fuerte/Rose
    GG: A.B.A/Zappa

    So I don't think I have much of a type as far as rushdown/zone/etc. I generally go right for an aesthetic and try to make it work. That aesthetic is often monster/evil/undead though obviously there are huge exceptions. I am probably more attracted to stance characters (true stance characters like Lei/Ivy/Zafina, not Squig style stance characters). I also gravitate toward whatever is considered low tier. It is a sickness. Tell me that a character sucks, and they begin to look beautiful to me.

    alexpi Your waifu sucks

    I'm sure I'm remembering the spellings wrong but:

    Street Fighter II (All version starting with World Warrior): Chun
    Mortal Kombat parts 1-3: Sub-Zero
    Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3: Smoke
    MK9: Mileena
    Soul Edge/Blade: Seong Mina
    Soul Calibur 1-4: Ivy
    Soul Calibur 5: Tira
    Samurai Showdown (all): Nakororu
    Darkstalkers 1 and 2: Felicia
    Vampire Saviors: Morrigan
    Tekken 2: Marshall Law and Anna Williams
    Tekken 3: Anna Williams and Ling Xiaoyu
    Tekken Tag Tournament: Damn near everyone. Anna, Xiaoyu, Julia, Michelle, Law, Jin, Lei, Jun, Bruce, Kazuya, and both mimic characters got heavily used by me. My strongest characters were probably Anna and Xiaoyu, but I didn't like their synergy too much so didn't often play them as a team. I never figured out a way for them to get a lot out of eachother's tagout moves.
    Other Tekkens: Xiaoyu and whichever Law was in
    Children of the Atom: Psylocke
    Marvel vs 1: Morrigan/Chun
    Marvel 2: Jill/Morrigan/Doom. Sent and Cable sometimes swapped in.
    Marvel 3: Joe/Morrigan/Taskmaster
    UMVC3: this game sucks
    Divekick: Dive
    Guilty Gear XX and on: I-No
    Killer Instinct (the original): Glacius
    Virtua Fighter 5: Shun and Eileen
    Smash (all of them): Jigglypuff. Learning Zelda/shiek for Other M

    Goddamn I've been playing too many games

    Lockdown: Strider+Doom, Arakune, Eddie, Scharlachrot, Relius, Parasoul+Double

    Characters that throw random items: Platinum, Hsien-Ko, Faust, Teddie



    As for why i pick characters... Usually I just watch high-level match videos and see a move/combo/setup, something that looks cool and I'll go try it out. I'll usually mess around with lots of characters in a game before settling on a main.

    I haven't really dedicated myself to these games, so these are generally the characters I use the most or pick first (read: ones I've found are easy-ish to mash with).

    Skullgirls: Started w/ Filia, threw in Valentine and swapped their order when Big Band came out
    Melty Blood: Crescent Moon Nanaya
    BlazBlue: Ragna
    Guilty Gear: May
    Virtual-On: Temjin (I don't have a 360 so the version of Oratorio Tangram that I play is outdated and I've never played against a human)
    Yatagarasu: Shimo or Crow
    Gundam EXVSFB: X3 or F91

    If I ever get around to playing Persona 4 Arena, probably Yosuke.
    Haven't looked at Arcana Heart 3 characters yet.
