Street fighting is hand-to-hand combat in public places, between individuals or groups of people.[1]
Unlike sport fighting, a street fight might involve weapons, multiple opponents, and no rules. The venue is usually a public place (e.g. a street) and the fight sometimes results in serious injury or occasionally even death.[1]
The main difference between street fighting and a self defense situation is that a street fight is avoidable, whereas a self-defense situation is not. The other main difference is that the fight is consensual between both parties. A typical situation might involve two men arguing in a bar, then one suggests stepping outside, where the fight commences. Thus, it is often possible to avoid the fight by backing off, while in self-defense, a person is actively trying to escape the situation, using force if necessary to ensure his or her own safety.[1]
In some martial arts communities, street fighting and self-defense are often considered synonymous.[1][2]

Street Fighter V (2016)[edit]
Main article: Street Fighter V
In July 2013, Ono commented that while he desired to make a Street Fighter V for an eighth-generation console, such as the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, a next-generation game would require a large staff and a large budget. He also stated that making the game a free-to-play title was an option, though he was not fully open to it, and confirmed that the game was currently not in development.[34] In June 2014, Ono refuted claims that Street Fighter V would include a "pay to win option", stating that Street Fighter V is still in the early planning stages.[35]
On December 5, 2014, a teaser trailer for Street Fighter V was unintentionally released by Capcom to the public before being taken down again. The trailer mentioned that the game would be exclusive to PlayStation 4 and PC,[36] and will enable cross platform gameplay.[37][38] The official announcement was made at Sony's PlayStation Experience event on December 6.[39] It was released on February 16, 2016.[40]
Film and TV[edit]
Jackie Chan's film City Hunter features a fight scene where Chan and his opponent (played by Gary Daniels) transform into various members of the Street Fighter II cast, including Ken, E. Honda, Guile, Dhalsim, and Chun-Li.
In the Family Guy episode "Tiegs for Two", Peter Griffin and an Asian dry-cleaners operator named Mr. Washee-Washee did battle in a parody of the original Street Fighter II. Peter had the move set of either Ken or Ryu, while Mr. Washee-Washee had the move set of E. Honda. In another episode, "Sibling Rivalry", Peter mentions some of the characters' names, which are Blanka, Chun Li, Guile, Zangief, and E. Honda, before Brian cuts him off by saying "That's Street Fighter."
The animated film Wreck-It Ralph features cameo appearances from Street Fighter characters, including Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Cammy, Blanka, Zangief, and M. Bison.
