Violent Ken


When Ken Masters absorbed the Orochi power in SNK VS Capcom: Chaos, he became Violent Ken. This "evil" version of Ken was inspired by Sennou Ken (which literally means 'brainwashed Ken' in Japanese), who debuted in Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie where he is being controlled by M. Bison. Violent Ken uses purple flames in his Shoryuken, not unlike Akuma.

Ryu has an evil form... so why not Ken?! Ken's evil incarnation in the Street Fighter 2 animated movie was actually badass if you ask me, so his fighting game iteration was well-deserved (and it sure took long enough). Violent Ken's poofy white afro is something else... I think SNK was trolling Capcom a bit there! ^o^ Indeed that is a comical and random hairstyle, especially the way it's drawn in the official SVC: Chaos artwork (but somehow, also kinda cool?). On that note, it's also pretty odd that Ken's hair is "back to normal" in the in-game SVC dialogue artwork and his character sprite. Weird... (and intriguing?). 

Nonetheless, Violent Ken turned out to be a pretty cool character in SVC: Chaos. Though still a shoto at heart, his powered-up moves and teleporting abilities definitely put an interesting spin on classic Ken.
