Eternity is a new NPC that welcomes players in the Battle Hub, which is the main place for online play in Street Fighter 6. The avatars created by fans in World Tour mode can free roam this location to meet up, hang around and play together. Eternity is percived by many fans as an LGBTQ+ representative in the game.

Fans have noticed that Eternity resembles Ruby Rhod from Fifth Element played by Chris Tucker. The NPC is a host in their own show called “Channel Eternity”. Its vibe is also a parallel to many popular streaming channels on twitch or YouTube, as the host is asking for likes and subs at the end of their show.

The sole presence of Eternity was enough for some players to leave negative reviews on sites like Metacritic or on Steam. It seems like the real fans didn’t bother too much because the game has attracted more than a million players days after its release. That’s even more impressive considering very strong competition from the side of Diablo IV which was released around the same time.
