Sakura Kasugano (春日野 さくら, Kasugano Sakura) is a playable character from Street Fighter series. She is a Japanese schoolgirl who has an intense fascination with Ryu. She has managed to copy and learn some of Ryu's techniques, but really wants him to train her personally. She has a friend named Kei Chitose, who attends the same high school and sometimes goes along with Sakura on her street fight tour.

Sakura typically fights in her school's uniform, a short-skirted sailor fuku (seifuku) with the collar popped and red bloomers underneath. She also wears red Converse-esque shoes, a red top under her uniform, red boxing gloves, a yellow bola tie, and a white headband (given by Ryu before Street Fighter Alpha 2). She has short brown hair.
In all aspects, Sakura has a very outgoing personality, as she is most of the time happy, energetic, cheerful, positive, hard-working and focused. She has a strong spirit and a very determined attitude in life, either in studies or in martial arts training. She sees Ryu as an idol, rather than an opponent, since she always watches him fight and mirrors herself on his lifestyle and philosophies. Although her techniques may seem somewhat "rustic" in comparison to Ryu's, she manages to balance her schoolgirl life with her daily trainings in order to be accepted as Ryu's pupil and prove herself by fighting worthy adversaries. Now as a young adult, Sakura has matured and bloomed into a more patient and disciplined fighter, though she still maintains her cheerful personality. She is the embodiment of innocence, and is acknowledged by many characters to have great potential that will match Ryu and Ken when she gets older.
Sakura's theme song is a SFIV remix of her stage from Street Fighter Alpha 2.
