* [[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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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!''

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.

* NamedByTheAdaptation: Ken Masters and Cammy White are given their full names in this movie (although the "Masters" surname predates this movie, as it was given to Ken in Hasbro's ''Street Fighter II'' action figure toyline to avoid confusion with Barbie's boyfriend of the same name). Subverted with Ryu and Ken's sensei, who was given the name Goutetsu in the script, but goes unmentioned in the actual movie (Goutetsu eventually became the name of sensei's sensei in the ''VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha'' series).

* 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 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 sh*t [[ItsPersonal and drops all pretense of toying with her.]]

** There was no explanation for the change of Ryu's headband until Capcom worked in the movie's backstory about it being a gift from Ken. However, the reason behind the gesture was changed.
