The Strongest Woman of the World
(She was knocked out in the game)
Discussing various female fighters wearing black stocking, we should not ignore the most important female fighter. She is so called the world's strongest woman. Her name is Chun Li 春麗.
(Effective Attack against her: Bearhug)
Here is the quote of Wikipedia about Chun-Li phenomenon:
Chun-Li is one of the earliest female video game protagonists to achieve widespread popularity.
Prior to Street Fighter II being released in 1991, most female characters in games existed as objectives to be rescued or cast in the roles of other supporting characters, such as townspeople, girlfriends, the occasional opponent, or simply background decoration; as such, there were very few heroines in action-based video games.
After the success of Street Fighter II and Chun-Li's popularity, female protagonists became increasingly common. Since then, in games with selectable characters, at least one of them will almost always be female; and a number of games released since that have placed a female character in the lead role.
Wikipedia also describes the typical dressing of Chun-Li:
Chun-Li wears the qipao, a traditional Chinese dress popular among girls during the early 20th Century. Her outfit is modified to allow a far wider range of movement than a normal qipao. She also wears combat boots and dark brown sheer pantyhose with her qipao. Her qipao is blue with golden yellow accents.
