Witness the horror of Street Fighter characters turned human by Google’s AI

WTF?! These days there are plenty of AI-based apps that can make us look older, younger, change our sex, and even add our likeness into movie scenes, but could there be a better use for such advanced technology? Yes: discovering what video game characters would look like in human form. In the case of Street Fighter’s extensive cast, there are some quite disturbing results.

As reported by VG24, Twitter user Siberian_644 posted a series of images showing the fighting series’ most popular characters turned into humans by Google’s algorithm. Some are actually very impressive and do resemble real-life versions of the combatants. Others, however, are the stuff of nightmares.

First up is Guile, who in human form resembles a young Jake Busey.

Following the movie star theme, here’s Guile again, now in his alternative outfit and easily mistaken for Tom Cruise during the actor’s Top Gun days.
