Mario tickling Chun-Li in the Club Nintendo comic

Chun-Li is a character from the Street Fighter series. A Chinese kung fu expert, she is Mario's second opponent in the Club Nintendo comic "Super Mario Klemp-Won-Do: Muskeln sind nicht alles!".

As Mario progresses to become Street Fighter II grand master, he meets his challenger, Chun-Li, and immediately falls in love with her. Unknowing she is his next challenger, Mario expects a "victory kiss" from her in result of his last fight with Zangief, but is surprised when she suddenly starts kicking him. With this, Mario is given the idea of tickling her feet with a feather. Chun-Li uncontrollably laughs and is unable to battle, leading to her loss and Mario's victory.

Chun-Li was also one of the fighters that laughed at Mario before the tournament started.

Chun-Li also appears as a Spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, where she is represented by Zero Suit Samus.
