Guile is a playable character from Street Fighter series. He first appeared in Street Fighter II. Although his role in the Street Fighter story was at first minimal, he is considered the third leading and best male character in the series, after Ryu and Ken, largely due to his effectiveness as a character and his popularity.

Early Street Fighter II sketches and notes suggest that Guile was developed specifically to appeal to American fans. His physical appearance is strikingly different from the many Asian characters in the Street Fighter series, with light blue eyes, a chiseled jaw, and a particularly tall flattop haircut. The length of Guile's hair varies greatly from appearance to appearance; it is relatively realistic in Street Fighter II, and impossibly tall in SNK vs. Capcom: SVC Chaos. Capcom source books suggest that Guile's famous hairdo is styled with a special-order army hair spray to keep it up (though he ends up fixing it quickly after a match).
Another way Guile's image differs from the Asian combatants in the series is his United States flag tattoos on each arm, following standard United States military protocol having the stars on the left hand side, giving the illusion that one of the flags is backwards.
Finally, Guile's military fatigues complete his all-American look. The image of the uniformed American Airman is well-known in Japan due to the number of United States Armed Forces bases present in that country.
Guile wears Charlie's dog tag alongside his own, as he searches for Bison. In Street Fighter IV, one of Guile's alternate costumes is Charlie's costume.
Guile is a tough man, both physically and mentally, who takes pride in family, and is a loving husband and father to his family. A stoic man at heart, Guile's calm and emotionless exterior actually hides the rage within him after Charlie's death.
Although loyal to the military and the United States, Guile is extremely persistent. He is so driven to find out who betrayed him in the jungles of Thailand, and to try and get at M. Bison, that he would even put that over his duties.
In Street Fighter X Tekken, it is revealed that he is scared of bears.
