Street Fighter V: LAURA – All Costumes, intro, Blows, Combos (update: April 2021)

Laura Matsuda (ララ・マツダ/松田 Rara Matsuda?) is a video game character from the Street Fighter series, first appearing in Street Fighter V. She is a free-spirited, hyperactive Brazilian woman and the older sister of Sean.

Laura Matsuda, her younger brother, Sean, and older brother, Fabio were all born in Brazil, though their father (Yuichiro Matsuda) and paternal grandfather (Kinjiro Matsuda) were Japanese (hence the surname). Yuichiro married Brenda and had three children (Fabio, Laura, and Sean). Laura has two maternal cousins (Enzo and Manuela Da Silva) who practice capoeira.

Laura was trained by Kinjiro in the art of the family’s Matsuda Jiu-Jitsu. When Sean leaves at some point to become Ken Masters’ apprentice and pupil, Laura becomes the heir of the art.

Character story
Heir to the Matsuda Jiu-Jitsu style, Laura looks for opponents to fight and to promote her fighting style. Before leaving her house to seek strong fighters, she hugs and teases Sean a bit. She encounters Birdie and offers him a free meal if they fight, afterwards Laura asks Birdie if he knows any strong fighters to which he points her in the direction of Karin. After their fight, Laura asks her if she knows any strong fighters, Karin replies by telling her about Ryu, after finding and fighting the wandering warrior, he talks about the Satsui no Hado. Later on, Laura meets and fights against Zangief who gives her tickets to a wrestling scouting event.

At some point during R. Mika’s character story, Laura is fighting against R. Mika in a wrestling match while Zangief is watching both of them. Before her match with R. Mika is interrupted, Laura happily states that she was tougher than she thought.

Fighting Style
Her fighting style is an original martial art inspired by Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu known as “Matsuda Jiu-Jitsu”[5].

Laura uses grappling techniques and breaking throws. Some of her kicking moves are similar to Elena’s Rhino Horn and she is able to manipulate electricity similar to Blanka. Her Thunder Clap projectile works in a similar fashion to Juri’s Fuhajin and some of her special attacks include grabbing her opponent and breaking their leg while another involves slamming the opponent to the ground and breaking their arm.

Her Critical Art, the Inazuma Spin Hold has her grabbing the opponent in a tornado fashion in mid air and slams them to the ground, forming a lightning strike as she spins her opponent in a electric dodge ball (similar to Blanka’s first Ultra Combo in the Street Fighter IV games) to finish her opponent with a headlock.

Interestingly, despite debuting in Street Fighter V, she is eligible to complete the Street Fighter III storyline in the game’s arcade mode. This is likely because the designers have made her a stand-in of sorts for Sean, as she is even wearing his colors when she is fought by a character completing this storyline.
