* ShowerScene: The movie provides one of the earliest and most well known examples in anime. In fact, [[ComeForTheXStayForTheY word of Chun-Li's shower scene]] actually helped the film gain notoriety, during the time of its original release.

** Ryu and Ken also exemplify it, by teaming up to take on Bison. Near the end of the fight, Ryu even goes so far as to grab Bison's legs to hold him still, so Ken could nail him with his [[HurricaneKick Tastumaki Senpuu Kyaku.]]

* AdvertisedExtra[=/=]BillingDisplacement: Almost every piece of merchandise and promotional material released in Japan featured Cammy. She even received top billing on the [[http://eiga-chirashi.jp/view_item.php?titleid=3568 Japanese flyer]] (as seen above) -- despite her screen time totaling [[OneSceneWonder less than five minutes]]. Guile, who is actually more important to the plot than she was, is lumped together with the less important Street Fighters.

* EffeminateMisogynisticGuy: [[SissyVillain Vega.]] In fact, his characterization here, as well as his earlier game appearances, was the reason gamers believed that Vega was gay until Capcom set the record straight (as it were) years later. In the movie, [[HomoeroticSubtext he seemingly becomes jealous]] when he notices Bison [[MaleGaze staring at Chun-Li's breasts]], while watching a video feed of her and Guile. Bison notices his reaction and gives him the order to eliminate her, which Vega gladly accepts. During the fight, he takes his time torturing her until she fights back and [[BerserkButton and steps on his face.]] At this point, Vega loses his shit [[ItsPersonal and drops all pretense of toying with her.]]

* MoodWhiplash: Near the end of the movie, Guile returns to the hospital to discover that [[spoiler:Chun-Li died from her injuries that she got in her fight with Vega. This turns out to be a rather messed-up prank that she plays on him, but [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming everything worked out in the end]]]].

* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: Every non-American character inexplicably has an American accent. Cammy (who is [[UsefulNotes/{{Britain}} English]]) in particular really sticks out.
* NotQuiteDead: [[spoiler:After being thrown off a mountain by Ryu and Ken, Bison looks like he was done for. But at the very end of the movie, he turns out to be just fine and tries to run over Ryu in a truck.]]

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 and is sometimes considered the greatest video game-based movie ever made.
