This awesome fan art gives Darkstalkers characters beards in celebration of Street Fighter 6's 'hot' trend


Capcom found a way to give iconic Street Fighter characters a sexy makeover with one simple maneuver… throw them a beard. What was once just your boring, unsexy Ryu became “Hot Ryu” in Street Fighter 5 with just some facial hair!





The “Hot” trend continues in Street Fighter 6, as not only Ryu has a beard this time, but Guile too. But what if we could make some of the Darkstalkers character hot too?… Artist Quasimodox had the same thought and produced some epic fan art showing what that could look like.









“It seems to be a trend for Street Fighter characters to be bearded. Hot Ryu, Hot Guile…,” Quasimodox wrote on Twitter. “How about Dark Stalkers? Hot Demitri, Hot Jedah, Hot Victor, Hot Raptor…”


These classic contenders don’t all get the same type of beard as Hot Ryu. Oh no. Instead, each has a facial haircut made just for their creepy face.


Gentleman vampire Demitri grows a full, luscious beard with a thick mustache, while Lord Raptor rocks a long goatee.


Hilariously, Jedah’s “Hot” transformation appears to give him a beard made of armor with a pair of long, yellow whiskers sticking out of his cheeks.


Finally, Victor looks like he’s straight from the early 1800s, which was a coincidence when he was born.


The artwork is very well done and the timing is just right as we finally got all five Darkstalkers games in one package here in the west thanks to the recent release of Capcom Fighting Collection. If a new Darkstalkers game is ever made in the Street Fighter 6 style, we can only hope that these “Hot” counterparts are made available as alternate costumes.
