Street Fighter V has a pretty sizable library of skins for its colorful cast of characters. A lot of them, however, lack some creativity. Luckily, if you’re playing the game on PC, you have the ability to mod the game to add your own custom skins. There’s a lot of them out there so we’ve assembled the top 21 SFV custom skins we think you’ll absolutely love!
John Wick (Cody)
The greatest killer in movie history works great with Mayor Cody’s knife and brutal fighting style! Show your opponents what it feels like to be beaten by a man who can kill with a pencil!
Michael Jackson (G)
The late Michael Jackson and G have one thing in common and that is charisma. It’s what makes this a perfect skin to give to the president of Earth. Be sure to always give your foes the speech before ending them with your flashy combos.
Shadow Jago (Ryu)
One of the more detailed skins on this list, the dark persona of Jago is a great fit for the alter ego of Ryu. Now you can have the Killer Instinct vs. Street Fighter dream matches you’ve always wanted!
Lightning is the underrated character of the Final Fantasy protagonist lot, which is a shame because her design is amazing! Thankfully, this Falke skin is well-made and captures the character perfectly!
Tifa is a fan favorite who’s been requested as a guest character for pretty much every fighting game out there! This custom SFV skin makes that dream partially come true as a replacement for Cammy’s default.
Well now, Yuna should make the ballerina cut, considering her flexibility and agility during her summoning ritual, no? This would definitely be a perfect match for Menat as well, seeing how Menat’s orb finely replaces Yuna’s staff.
Capcom may not be making any KOF vs. SFV games, but that doesn’t mean we can’t insert their characters as skins! Since Poison also carries a whip, this is the perfect custom skin to bring alive dreams of CVS past!
Blair Dame (FEXL) (Lucia)
Another fighting game mashup custom skin for SFV, this one brings the spectacular Blair Dame into the fold! She may not be well-known but her design is truly unique and fits Lucia like a glove.
Darun Mister (FEXL) (Zangief)
The master grappler of FEXL is a fitting custom skin for the Red Cyclone himself! Their movesets may not have a lot in common but this is surely another great blend of skin and character.
Black Mamba 24 (Ryu)
We’re not sure what this skin is based on but it’s definitely basketball-related! Nonetheless, it’s the type of skin you’d never see on Ryu officially so it’s definitely unique!
Dio Brando (Urien)
You thought that Urien was coming to fight but it was in fact Dio! The greatest villain in anime history is the perfect skin to customize one of SFV’s greatest antagonists!
Another JoJo’s reference and one that fits well on several levels. Not only does a Wamuu skin fit Seth’s demeanor but also his wind abilities go well with the Tanden Engine attacks.
All Might (Balrog)
Okay, so All Might isn’t a villain by any stretch but he loves his punches and so does Balrog! This custom SFV skin is all we could think of for the strongest boxer in Street Fighter history!
Son Goku (Ryu)
You knew this was coming when the anime theme started! It’s only natural that Son Goku is a custom skin for Ryu. What’s cool about this one is that activating VT gives Goku his signature Super Saiyan hair!
Majin Buu (E. Honda)
This was also to be expected! Big fat Majin Buu is a perfect custom skin for master sumo wrestler E. Honda. The skin works particularly well when using the command grab which looks exactly like how Buu smashes his foes to the ground.
Boa Hancock (Juri)
Sexy meets sexier when you give Juri the look of one of the best One Piece characters! Boa Hancock’s seductive demeanor is a perfect fit for Juri because they both have legs for days!
Admit it. You always wanted a Luffy skin for the stretchy yoga master of SFV. This isn’t the best-rigged skin as the face looks like nightmare fuel. But, tossing out Gomu Gomu Pistols is definitely worth the effort!
Ann Takamaki (Karin)
Panther of the Phantom Thieves has the same pizzazz and drama of the head of the Kanzuki Estate. This skin, in particular, is exceptionally made with some awesome details!
Makoto Niijima (Sakura)
Makoto may not have Sakura’s spunkiness but their fighting style is quite similar. Queen loves to dish out the pain and does so amazingly in SFV!
Futaba Sakura (Menat)
Both Menat and Futaba are oracles in their own way which makes this skin just perfect if you want to add more Phantom Thieves to your ensemble. We don’t think Oracle is as nimble as Menat but we can overlook that.
Seashell Bikini (Chun Li)
We just had to include a bit of spice to end this list. Chun Li has been given all sorts of lewd custom SFV skins so it would have been poor form on our part not to include at least one!
