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, hyper-active Brazilian person and the sister of Sean.



Laura has long black hair, the right side being worn loose and the left side starting as cornrow braids before blending with the rest at the back. She has light brown eyes.

She wears a bright green sports bra top with yellow linings and a tie at the centre, matching bright green martial arts pants with yellow linings with a black belt to her waist, it has black and yellow linings and at the center resembles a bright green thong and black ankle wraps on her bare feet. She also wears several bracelets in different colors similar to Elena's. The color scheme of her outfit matches the Brazilian flag.

Her alternate costume consists of a short sleeved bright green mini shirt which uncovers half of her breasts and the word "bonita" (Brazilian Portuguese for "beautiful [woman]") at the center of her mini shirt, denim short shorts with straps of her black thong exposed, brown gladiator-style sandals, yellow and red bracelets in both of her wrists and a red choker on her neck with a gold round at the center of her choker.

Her second alternate costume consists of a yellow openly karate gi with black outlines, a black bikini top underneath, bright green buruma with a black karate belt to her waist and black leg wraps on her feet. She also wears black fingerless gloves. Her braids are tied in a high ponytail.


Described as "bohemian", Laura has a free spirited and energetic personality and enjoys thrills. Similar to Makoto, she has a desire to promote her family's fighting style. Laura also likes to give advice to others. Her character-specific versus quotes imply that she is also very easy to befriend too.

In A Shadow Falls, Laura has a very hyper-active side when she tries to use her Jiu-Jitsu moves and a headlock to her younger brother, Sean which is the reason for him to be afraid of her. She also shown to be short tempered when she mistakes Ken Masters as an enemy before Sean corrects her about them being saved from the Shadaloo soldiers led by F.A.N.G.


The earliest design of Laura bore a near resemblance to Street Fighter EX fighter Pullum Purna, a later design had her resembling her brother Sean more closely.
