** Ken's wealthy status was first established here.



** While Bison's profile in ''Street Fighter II'' stated that he was an unrivaled street fighter and was able to form Shadaloo strictly by way of AsskickingEqualsAuthority, his actual skills and abilities weren't that far beyond what other characters in the game were capable of. In this movie, Bison has full-blown StoryBreakerPower to the point that no other character even comes ''close'' to touching him. This was later copied over to the ''Alpha'' series, where this form of Bison was dubbed "Shin (True) Bison" and is the absolute peak of Bison's Psycho Power. It was retconned that after the Shin Bison body was destroyed, along with the Psycho Drive, Bison was forced to use a much, ''much'' weaker body in the second World Warrior tournament.

* PragmaticAdaptation: While the movie is lauded as one of the most faithful video game adaptations ever made, some things obviously had to be changed, mostly to make the special moves look more realistic. Perhaps most noticably, Ryu's [[HurricaneKick Tatsumaki Senpuu Kyaku]] in his fight against Fei Long was changed from hovering through the air spinning around on one leg like a top with his other foot extended, to multiple midair roundhouse kicks with alternating legs. Similarly, Chun-Li's Spinning Bird Kick against Vega is actually done by rapidly handstanding in circles, rather than floating across the ground on her head. An added benefit of these changes was that it [[AdaptationalBadass made the special moves more "special"]]- Guile's Sonic Boom goes from a small yellow frisbee he can spam out in front of him every two seconds to an ''[[RazorWind actual sonic boom]]'' that takes him several seconds to charge and ''cut Honda's hut in half!''

* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: Every non-American character inexplicably has an American accent. Cammy (who is [[UsefulNotes/{{Britain}} English]]) in particular really sticks out.

* AnimeThemeSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uChauOW6CDI "Itoshisa to Setsunasa to Kokoro Tsuyosa to"]] plays during [[spoiler:Ryu and Ken's fight with Bison]]. ''Street Fighter Zero'', the Japanese version of the ''Street Fighter Alpha'', features an instrumental version of the song for its Dramatic Battle mode. ''[[VideoGame/ProjectXZone Project X Zone 2]]'' also features an instrumental version of the song [[spoiler: when Ryu fights a BrainwashedAndCrazy Ken in Chapter 29 of the game and later in Chapter 38 when Ryu and Ken finish off Bison.]]

* [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness They Have Served Their Purpose]][=/=][[YouHaveFailedMe They Have Failed Me]]: Just before departing for Cambodia, Bison orders Sagat to eliminate Cammy and Vega, since he no longer had a need for the former, while the latter failed to carry out his assignment to kill Chun-Li.
* ToThePain: Vega does this to Chun-Li -- and pays dearly for it.

* MarketBasedTitle: The film, known in Japan as ''Street Fighter II Movie'', was retitled ''Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie'' for its overseas release to avoid confusion with the live action film.

* AdaptedOut: There is no sort of TournamentArc whatsoever. This film takes the "Street Fighter" title literally. Even Ryu's fight with Sagat, which was supposed to be the final round of the first-ever World Warrior tournament, is done in a completely empty field in the middle of the night.

Unlike that other [[Film/StreetFighter 1994 movie based on the franchise]], ''Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie'' stays as faithful as possible to the original game (and its various [[UpdatedRerelease iterations]] of its day). Any changes made to the storyline still do their best to represent the spirit of the series. Soon after the release of this film, Creator/{{Capcom}} made a [[RecursiveAdaptation video game]] that follows the events of an upgraded Monitor Cyborg recording various Street Fighter battles. Several fight scenes and new ideas introduced in this film (the fight between Ryu and Sagat at the beginning of the film, Ken's longer hair during his training days with Ryu, how Ryu got his red headband, and a two-on-one battle with Ryu and Ken fighting Bison) [[RetCanon eventually became part of]] the ''VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha'' series. Because of its adherence to the canon and the spirit of the games, ''Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie'' remains a huge fan favorite to this day.
