Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition – All Arcade Endings Unlock Guide

Not all endings are created equal in Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition. There are over 200 endings in the new Arcade Mode, and each one will unlock a special bonus piece of art. Some of the art is pretty stunning, but not all of it is easy to get — certain endings have special requirements you’ll need to fulfill.

Here, we’ll break down all the endings available to each character, and each “game” in the series. Arcade Mode is split into six sub-modes that cover the entire franchise history, from Street Fighter 1 all the way to Street Fighter 5 (and including Street Fighter Alpha) — the earlier games feature fewer current characters and endings, and each arcade mode is slightly different. If you want to know how to unlock some special hardcore bonus endings, here’s exactly how to do it.

All Arcade Endings Unlock Guide

There are lots of endings in SFV. As of [1/18] there are 222 endings, and there will be more endings as the Season 3 characters are released. Here, we’ll break down all the endings — split into two categories.

Standard Endings are simple to unlock; all you have to do is complete the Arcade Mode with the listed characters. Special Endings are unique bonuses with unique stipulations. We’ll list how to get each Special Ending in detail.
