And there you go! Remember that our list may vary on whatever best works for you. The way all characters in Street Fighter: Duel interact with each other and the number of possible combinations can make even the most mid-character in the game a total winning machine. With that being said, if you were to pick a character to aim for first, I would say M. Bison is the best choice. He is a beast in both PVE and PVP thanks to his Return of the Inferno passive skill, making him, at least in my opinion, arguably one the best Street Fighter: Duel characters.
