A recent Street Fighter 6 tournament was momentarily impeded due to the use of an illicit mod — and we stress the word illicit here. The mod in question may not have provided an advantage for the tourneygoer playing as Chun-Li in the form of actual gameplay, but rather in the form of a distinctly distracting alternate costume… or lack thereof.
During the tournament’s second round in a match-up between Chun-Li and Kimberly, it was ahem, revealed that the tournament organizer forgot to disable their nude Chun-Li mod which saw Chun-Li taking on her opponent butt naked.
The nude Chun-Li mod clip was shared on Twitter/X by Nicholas De Orio. The clip features a few seconds of the nude Chun-Li and Kimberly approaching one another before the confused-sounding commentator states, “Um, yeah that’s a very interesting Chun-Li costume there,” while the other commentator erupts into laughter. The video then quickly cuts away from the nude Chun-Li mod footage to the tournament bracket.
NSFW Warning: The following video shared on Twitter/X features footage of the nude Chun-Li mod at the tournament. Viewer discretion is advised.

According to its most recent earnings report, the sales success of Street Fighter 6, along with the Resident Evil 4 remake were the top performers for the company in its first fiscal quarter, elevating net sales up 74% year-on-year to $313 million.
What do you think of the tournament organizer forgetting to turn off their nude Chun-Li mod prior to the tourney starting? What do you think of there being a nude Chun-Li mod in general? Let us know in the comments.
