** Despite being a main character in the game itself, Ken's role [[MinorMajorCharacter is minor]]. ''The Animated Movie'' changed this by fleshing out his history with Ryu and reveals that his iconic red headband [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JUlZnM-Trd0 used to be Ken's hair ribbon.]] Which was later canonized in ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha Street Fighter]]'' ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xKG699RzsrE Alpha 2]]'', albeit under different circumstances.[[note]]In ''The Animated Movie'', Ken ties it around Ryu's forehead as a form of apology after accidentally injuring him during one of their sparring sessions. In ''Alpha 2'', Ken simply gives it to him as reminder of their promise to settle their rivalry once and for all.[[/note]] Ken is also given plot relevance, by having Bison target him as a means to get to Ryu, and makes him jointly responsible for Bison's defeat at the end.[[note]]In the ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' series, Bison has no interest in Ken. In addition, Ken has never taken part in any of the major battles against the series main villains.[[/note]]

Thanks to its popularity, the ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' series received an [[TheAnimeOfTheGame anime film adaptation]] in 1994: '''''Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie'''''.

A must-see super battle action movie for All Street Fighter fans.''" - Official description from the Japanese laserdisc. After the unexpected success of the original ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'' and its subsequent revisions and console ports, Capcom decided to produce [[TheAnimeOfTheGame a feature-length anime film adaptation]] movie]] based on the series. The movie, simply titled ''Street Fighter II Movie'' in 1994: '''''Street Japan and later released internationally as ''Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie'''''. Movie'', was first announced in 1993 at the same time as ''Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers'' (the fourth version of the game) began distribution in the arcades. It was released theatrically on August 8, 1994.

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 Ken and Ryu 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. The film's original American release in 1995 came with a healthy dose of censorship attached -- cuts to the infamous Chun-Li shower scene accompanied toned-down blood and swearing. Creator/MangaEntertainment rectified this in 2006 with a dual-sided DVD that contained a (virtually) uncensored version of the English dub and a (completely) uncensored version of the original Japanese version of the film. In 2008, Netflix began streaming a fully uncut version of the film's English dub with either the English or Japanese soundtrack backing the dub. It is currently licensed by Creator/DiscotekMedia, who have [[https://www.facebook.com/147168055312297/photos/a.196378827057886.55668.147168055312297/1025494254146335/?type=1 announced plans for a DVD and Blu-ray re-release]].
