Ken Masters and Eliza Divorce, The break up that shook up the video game world
Ken Masters started as a Blonde Head-swap of Ryu in the first Street Fighter game, but as the series progresses, the two best friends go in different directions in life. Ryu became a world-traveling hermit who trains to be the best Martial Artist. He wanted to win tournaments, meet rivals that were beyond stronger than him and compete. While Ken is an heir to a million-dollar company, Without a doubt, He cannot live Ryu’s lifestyle even if he wanted to be the greatest fighter too. He is the Number one Martial Artist in America but has time for his business and family.
Ken Masters and Eliza, The happy times.
Fans of Street Fighter Grow up watching the love story of Ken and Eliza. When Ken defeated M.Bison in Street Fighter II, Eliza was the first person to show up and give him support. This romantic moment leads to their marriage. Previously before they got married, people saw their dynamic as a dating couple in Mangas and Anime of Street Fighter. She is probably the most popular NPC in Street Fighter lore.

Eliza and Ken gave birth to their first son Mel. During Eliza’s pregnancy, Ken sets aside his fighting career to be with Eliza. She has always supported Ken, to the point of her being a Manic Pixie girl who dedicates her life to him.
Eliza is always beside Ken whenever he competes in tournaments. Mel joining the family gives them the image of a happy family. She is patient and understands the consequences of getting married to a Street Fighter.
The Masters family evolves into a more solid and concrete unit as sequels go by. Male Street Fighter fans got this fantasy: they have a supportive and loving wife like Eliza. If you think about it, Both of them are Blonde. They are like Barbie and that male doll that shares the name with the Street Fighter.
One thing noticeable about Ken Masters is that he always smiles. Even during the fights, you can see the pearly whites because he is optimistic. Ken’s CGI character model for Street Fighter 6 doesn’t smile anymore. His plot also got a leak that Eliza left him and took Mel. The cause of the breakup is not yet specified, but the Miserable Ken meme became viral everywhere on the internet.
Some Fans are upset that the flawless couple is separating.
But what I don't understand is that Eliza was pretty supportive of Ken's path even up to third strike
– 2: they get married
– 4: She encourages him to find Ryu while pregnant/Ken watches her give birth
– 3: She watches him win a tourney
I hope this isn't true oml pic.twitter.com/tJL306ogEY

Here are some hilarious memes of “Divorced Ken”
There is this Meme that the cause of Divorce is Ken investing all of his money on NFTs.
Ken invested in Ape jpegs, so Eliza was in her full right to divorce and take the kids. And the house. And the money. https://t.co/gFEFdi2RII

Ken, I heard Amber Heard is available. Maybe you should try dating her.

Wow, this is a Dark storyline, but you know what? This misfortune could be great for Ken’s character development. He is living a picture-perfect life throughout all of his existence in Street Fighter while Cammy is dealing with PTSD, Chun-li is Mourning her father’s death, Charlie is getting screwed all over again, and T. Hawk is fighting for the rights of his tribe. In contrast, the love of his life was a Brainwashed doll who lost her soul.

This is terrible. Ken has been my primary character in numerous Street Fighter games. Surely Ryu would not abandon his rival and friend in such a manner? Man, I hope he has a redemption narrative, or else Ken will get violent in the future. Sigh. What are the writers thinking?

Ken’s new look has some lovely details. Many fans were unaware that Ken is not naturally blonde. Because his mother is Japanese, he has either black or brown hair. Ken frequently dyes his hair blonde to make him appear less Japanese and more American. He’s attempting to pass as white. Now he is depressed, as seen by the black roots in his hair. He no longer cares about dying, and his face is stubbled. His clothes become less showy and more washed-up dad-like.

Ken is in denial stage with this tweet.
LOL I love this meme.

Goku and Chi-Chi from Dragon Ball Z divorcing, I can understand because that is a verbally abusive loveless marriage. Goku don’t even kiss Chi-Chi and they are married for like 25 years. Yet Goku and Chi-Chi are still together and they have grandchildren already.
Meanwhile, Eliza and Ken always have this perfect marriage with no flaws. All their moments together looks blissful.

You guys got baited by this publicity stunt. Capcom made two happily married fictional characters divorce and now you are all talking. A marketing with zero effort because everyone are now talking. People are eve even taking this seriously. I guess it gave Geeks a sense of reality. Marriages fail and separations happen. Just because a couple looks happy it doesn’t mean that’s what happen in close doors.

Is Capcom going to play safe and have Ken and Eliza reconcile or are they going to a dark path and separate them for real. In Mortal Kombat X, Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade also divorced but they got back together thanks to their daughter.

Whatever Ken’s troubles are in his future storyline, I can see Ryu stepping in and giving his friend the push he needs to get back up, just like when Ken pushed him out of his rut all those years ago, as evidenced by his red headband.

I never mained Ken, My Mains in Street Fighter V are Karin and Charlie but Ken is so alone right now. So I will main him out of pity.
June 8, 2022 @ 4:26 pm
He is BroKEN… Get it? BroKEN! sorry for my corny joke.

Meme of the year! I can’t get enough of the divorced Ken memes. They are dark and depressing but for some unknown reason they are hilarious too. The Meme made Ken more popular than Ryu and Chun-li at this moment.

Terry Bogard better be a Guest character, So He can ask Ken if he is okay.🤣🤣🤣

This is why I never risked my cash on NFTs and Crypto.

Ken might become a highly playable character at launch because people sympathizes with him. He use to have everything and now everything is taken away.

I am not even a Ken main but I want to see Ken’s trailer now because of his current story.
