** Shouldn't matter at all, considering how friggin' ''long'' the chain on the handcuffs is...

* DoesNotLikeShoes: Subverted. In the UDON comics, she tries going barefoot in order to emulate Ryu, but doing so on a gravel road [[AgonyOfTheFeet probably wasn't a good idea]].
** Her Battle Costume in ''V'' is a Ryu outfit, but instead of being completely barefoot, she's wearing red footwear that look similar to Ryu's gloves that leave her toes and heels exposed.



* GamerGirl: She likes playing video games (except with her little brother, since he always wins), and as of ''V'', she now works a part-time job at an arcade.

* MartialArtsHeadband: Her white headband is actually the headband that Ryu wore in the original ''Street Fighter'' and ''Alpha''. Ryu gave it to her and switched to his iconic red headband, which was originally worn by Ken to tie back his hair.

Added DiffLines:

* TechnicianVsPerformer: The Performer in comparison to Guile. Charlie's moves look a lot more effortless, creative and flashy, whereas Guile just sticks to the basics.

* ShesAllGrownUp: In ''V'', Sakura has finally graduated from high-school and works part-time at a local arcade. This heralds a brand new, grown up look for her, and her main outfit in ''V'' is her arcade worker uniform, which is based on that of a classic [[https://i.imgur.com/KuiAYbI.jpg pachinko parlour]] [[https://www.japantimes.co.jp/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/n-pachinko-c-20140822.jpg attendant]], complete with blouse, waistcoat, neck-scarf and headset.

* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: In ''V'', Cody now keeps his hair slicked back, adding to his cleaned up look as the new mayor of Metro City.



* InstitutionalApparel: Gets the horizontal stripes variant in ''Alpha 3'', which becomes his default outfit in the ''Street Fighter'' franchise as a whole. ''SSFIV'' gives him orange scrubs as DLC.

* InstitutionalApparel: Gets the horizontal stripes variant in ''Alpha 3'', which becomes his default outfit in the ''Street Fighter'' franchise as a whole. ''SSFIV'' gives him orange scrubs as DLC. Averted in ''V'', where his default is instead a nice suit, and the intro to ''Arcade Edition'' even shows his old prison uniform lying discarded on the ground.



* PhysicalGod: Cody is an odd example; In a series where the other strongest characters (Gouken, Oni, and Oro) use Ki attacks, Cody relies on sheer physical strength, and the skill which sets him apart from other physical fighters like Zangief, to pummel his opponents (including the aforementioned strongest Ki users) into the ground. His punches are so strong that they create a ''vaccuum'' and cause a small tornado to form. And this is all ''before'' he decides he's found a fight worth going all out on. There is a reason that Oni shows some measure of respect to him.

* LosingAShoeInTheStruggle: Well post match anyway and PlayedForLaughs. Her original win poses in the ''Alpha'' series had her do a fighting pose finishing with a kick...to which her sneaker would (sometimes) fly off and hit her in the head.

* FragileSpeedster: ''Videogame/StreetFighterV''[='s=] stat chart indicates that Karin is listed along with ''Zeku and Akuma'' in terms of technical skill and is also ranked extremely high in terms of mobility. However, she is also second to him only in fragility as well.
