Real name William F. Guile

Guile (ガイル, Gairu) is a character in Capcom's Street Fighter series of fighting games. He debuted as one of the original eight characters in 1991's Street Fighter II and appeared in the game's subsequent updates. In the games he is portrayed as a major in the United States Air Force who is seeking to avenge the death of his Air Force buddy Charlie at the hands of the villainous dictator M. Bison.

One of the most popular characters in the series, Guile has appeared in other Street Fighter games, including Street Fighter Alpha 3 (where he is a playable character alongside Charlie) and Street Fighter IV. He is also a playable character in various spin-off titles, such as the Street Fighter EX, Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and SNK vs. Capcom series. In addition, Guile has appeared in other Street Fighter media. He is one of the main characters in the 1994 live action Street Fighter film and its animated spin-off, as well as Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie. The character has also been featured in various official comics and merchandise.

Guile has been perceived as one of the more unique Street Fighter II characters in both appearance and gameplay. He is noted as having only two signature moves in the game, both of which are performed by first holding a direction on the joystick ("charging") - the Sonic Boom and somersault (or "Flash Kick"). Guile has been well received, with the character often placing highly in various lists of the best Street Fighter characters of all time.


Né le 23 décembre 1960, le colonel Guile est le meilleur ami de Charlie, et fait partie comme lui de l'armée de l'air US. Charlie enquêtait sur les connexions entre certains officiers américains et Shadaloo, l'organisation criminelle dirigée par M. Bison. N'ayant plus donné signe de vie, Guile est envoyé à sa recherche.

À la fin de Street Fighter Alpha 3, Guile retrouve son ami dans la base secrète de Bison, et lui ordonne de sortir car le site va être bombardé dans moins d'une heure. C'est alors que Bison surgit, Guile le vainc, mais l'infâme fait appel à toute son énergie psycho power contenue dans le psycho drive. Charlie crie alors à Guile de s'enfuir pendant qu'il retient Bison. Guile assiste alors impuissant à l'explosion de la base secrète.

Dans Street Fighter II, Guile reçut une invitation pour participer à ce tournoi et sut par la même occasion que Bison était toujours en vie. Il le bat une deuxième fois, mais au moment de l'abattre, il se souvient des mots de sa femme Jane : "Le tuer ne fera pas revenir Charlie, cela ne fera de toi qu'un meurtrier comme Bison". Guile épargne alors Bison et rentre chez lui, apaisé.

Pour les deux épisodes, Capcom indique que la fin officielle est celle de Guile. Les fins des autres personnages sont soit hypothétiques, soit se sont produites sans contredire la storyline officielle.

Guile et Charlie utilisent le même style de combat, à quelques différences près (comme Ken et Ryu). C'est Charlie qui a inventé la technique du sonic boom et Guile qui l'a fait évoluer en sonic hurricane.

Bison (Raul Julia) and the Allied Nations, a multinational military force, led by their regional commander, Colonel William F. Guile. Bison has recently captured several A.N. relief workers, and via a live two-way radio broadcast, demands Guile secure a US$20 billion ransom in three days or else face responsibility for the hostages' deaths. Guile refuses and vows to track Bison down, but his assistant, Sergeant Cammy (Kylie Minogue) is only partially able to pinpoint Bison's location to the river-delta region outside the city. One of the hostages is Guile's close friend, Carlos "Charlie" Blanka (Robert Mammone), who Bison orders taken to his lab for his captive witch doctor, Dhalsim (Roshan Seth), to turn into the first of his supersoldiers.
