I mean just everything about them. The character designs (raven-haired women are the best), fighting styles (always so fluid and elegant), and personality. It's also the main reason I want Chi-Chi in FighterZ.

The most famous example being of course the first lady of fighting games Chun-Li from Street Fighter fame.

Oh my gosh, "What...?" was my initial reaction, too.

Meh. "Wacky" or mostly unarmed fighters for me, while I'm here. Really don't care which nationality... Examples I mean are like... Cracker Jack from SFEX, with his kinda odd moveset despite not being nearly the weirdest thing in the series, or possibly Viewtiful Joe in Tv and MvC. I mean mostly unarmed because I really like it when they have a weapon attack, but not something traditional like a sword or fairly normal gun. Frank West being the best example I can think of here. However, I can think of some exceptions of characters I like despite being completely unarmed. Mokujin, I love it's physical design (And Pac-Mojukin if that even counts), Mizoguchi from Fighter's History, like his attacks far more than Ryu's, and the Lee brothers, talking about the Neo Geo fighter. For a few occasions, I simply like "underdog" characters, or characters that most people hate, not necessarily due to their role in the story. Like Pac-Mokujin again, Box Art Mega Man, Sean, Servbot, or Sylvie.

What is “the chinese girl archetype”?? I don’t see how Chi Chi and Chun Li are similar.

I’m familiar with fighting game archetypes but not this one...

It's a female character that is...

1. Highly trained in the martial arts, always traditionally Chinese.

2. Wear Cheongsam or similar Chinese clothing.

3. Have a distinct accent and/or are from China

BONUS:  Their hair is done in Odango style.

Wait, I don't think I gave the proper intended type of response going by some comments up there... Well, I don't have an answer for that side.

Also, now that I think about it, I don't think "Chinese" is an "archtype". Grappler, zoner, all around, gimmick, that type of stuff... Unless there's "character design archtypes"?

So mostly based on appearance and stereotype.

I guess I’m more into the European Dude Archtypes.(blond hair is the best) Lol

those are way too specific to be a fighting game character archetype and they seem more like a description of a waifu.
a fighting game archetype would be something like grapplers, charge characters, balanced, rush down etc...
