Let the evil powers of the Shadaloo leader bring you many SFV victories (and a lot of gaming fun!)

It seems like everyone loves praising game heroes. But who are they without great villains? Without Robotnik, Sonic becomes just a hedgehog. Without Bowser, Mario is just a plumber. Street Fighter V would also lose a significant part of its excitement if there were no decent bad guys who all the time invent new motivations for good ones to move forward and become even better. M. Bison is just a perfect villain for such a role!

Would you like to master the powerful leader of Shadaloo? Then take a look at this SFV guide on DashFight! Here we explain his exceptionally glorious (who knows, maybe M. Bison is reading this) personality and moves list.

Street Fighter 5 M. Bison

Take a look at the appearance of this SF5 fighter and you will get a lot from his personality. M. Bison looks like a military dictator who is ready for everything only to get world domination.

In the virtual universe of Street Fighter, M. Bison has built the criminal organization Shadaloo. He uses it to take control of the governments all over the world and rule the whole planet while staying in shadow. Other activities of Shadaloo include weapon and drug trading - probably to have some extra cash.

Some of the Street Fighter characters are supporters of M. Bison - for example, F.A.N.G., Balrog, and Vega. Still, many other fighters battle against Shadalo and even have a personal war against M. Bison. Guile and Chun-Li want to avenge the death of a friend and the further respectively. Once, M. Bison offered Ryu to become a part of his army, but the guy refused.

The strength of M. Bison comes from the evil energy Psycho Power (Ryu and Ken use Hadou). Psycho Power is very dangerous, so Bison decided to prepare a new body for himself, which even became a game fighter too - Cammy. The girl grew independent and also started fighting against M. Bison.

Of course, the best way to discover all the shades of M. Bison’s background and his relationships with other characters is playing games of the Street Fighter series!

Emperor of Evil - M. Bison in Street Fighter 5

For the first time, players fought M. Bison in arguably the best SF game ever - Street Fighter II (where he performed his well-known M. Bison Scissor Kick). First, he was only a boss but then was added to the playable roster in the Champion Edition. In that game, M. Bison was defeated by a secret hero, Akuma.

M. Bison was available in the games of the Street Fighter Alpha sub-series. In Street Fighter IV, he controlled the main antagonist - Seth. Street Fighter 5 Bison is both an evil boss and a playable character. He is available in the game after the initial release, so you get him with both SFV Arcade and Champion Editions.

Street Fighter V Basic attacks of M. Bison

  • Light Punch is a very quick hit with the left hand that deals a small amount of damage.
  • Medium Punch - from the crouching position, this attack often starts SF5 Bison combos. The hit is strong and covers a big distance. Standing Medium Punch and jumping Medium Punch change the attacking hand - they are good for pressuring the opponent.
  • Heavy Punch - it’s a powerful uppercut from the crouching position. Standing Heavy Punch is surprisingly quick
  • Light Kick is very fast from the crouching and standing positions. Jumping Light Kick takes a bit more time to perform.
  • Medium Kick has a good range. Use it to keep the opponent at a medium distance.
  • Heavy Kick - from the crouching position, M. Bison slides very far and hits the opponent very low. Standing Heavy Kick is a knee hit and it’s one of the most effective attacks for a neutral game.
