Many of them have multiple influences. Kemono is Goro. Ying Hua is Chun Li. Natalia is Black Widow. Leeta is one of the Sadlers' girlfriends.

They arent all direct references to other franchises. A lot of them are based around a certain fighting style more than one character. For example Gabriel is a quintessestial BJJ achetype. Some are more direct however. Kyoryu is a mix of Ryu and Raiden. Jack and Wildfire are Axel and Blaze from Streets of Rage. Brandon is Bruce Lee. Leeta is Brady's wife. Renae is Adams girlfriend. Axel and Rhys are Adam and Brady themselves. Micky Scott is Scotty from the Blacklist team. Kemono is a mix of Goto and Blanka. Project X was originally based on the girl from the Ring before she got upgraded to a full boss. Yokai is a mix of Akuma from street fighter and the super saiyan power up trope. The Don is supposed to be a legally distinct Don Corleone, with a Michael Jackson backup in Genesis. Ikuchi is evil Kyoryu, so really just evil Ryu. Jackal has a touch of M. Bison clothing with mind control powers.

Not sure if my response came across as rude, apologizes if it did. I linked the thread so you could combine your ideas with theirs and get a few more opinions on the character influences.

You weren't rude at all. You were helpful, there's a difference
