* MusicalThemeNaming: Much like other VideoGame/{{FinalFight}} enemies, her name is a rock music reference. Specifically to the 80's hair band Music/{{Poison}}.

** This can be justified in that Akuma's motivations and pursuit of the ultimate fighting technique caused him to tap into something he really shouldn't have. That entity (Oni) doesn't need a lot of characterization because its mere existence is enough to tell you about it.
* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Regular Akuma is [[http://www.eventhubs.com/tiers/sf4/ higher on the tier list than Oni is.]]
** Although it could be not entirely a lie. Oni seems to be incapable of fully controlling his power like Akuma. We have also seen that he required a lot of effort to do a task (blow up a volcano) that Akuma might do on a bigger scale without much effort.

* UnexpectedCharacter: Due to the Sheng Long joke happening at least ''three'' times beforehand (especially since the third time was near the game's release), a few people doubted he really existed and was just yet another prank. Moreover, the fact that the character was apparently considered canonically ''dead'' was thought to put a damper on a playable appearance.



* UnexpectedCharacter: Averted in this case, as it was widely speculated that it would be incredibly easy to port her and the other ''X Tekken'' newcomers into ''Street Fighter IV''. This is supported by there being quite a lot of desire by the fanbase to have her as a playable character in the first place.



* ADeathInTheLimelight: [[spoiler:It is strongly implied that she dies in her ending (She doesnt), as she has already begun to deteriorate. Bison says there is a way to save her, and knowing how often he's cheated death, it wouldn't be out of the question for her to be alive in later games. And sure enough, she makes a return in ''V''.]]



* UnexpectedCharacter: Decapre was the fifth and mysterious character for ''Ultra'', and nobody could imagine that she would appear in this game.

* HardWorkHardlyWorks: Subverted. At first glance, it looks like Rufus came up with his elaborate fighting techniques simply by ''watching kung-fu movies and eating like a pig''. However, it's revealed that in order to refine his [[PunnyName Kung Food]], Rufus took on correspondence courses and later went to China to study under various masters.

Not to mention he built muscle by carrying motorcycles on his back.

* GenreSavvy: Gouken is well aware that it is only a matter of ''when'', not ''if'', in regards to Akuma finally losing control and succumbing to the Killing Intent.



* GenreSavvy: He [[MetaGuy gets pretty meta]] about media and its influence on people in Fei Long's ''SFIV'' ending. Fei Long isn't exactly convinced, though.

* FatAndProud: He scoffs at "skinny dudes" (i.e., the majority of the roster), frets about losing too much weight with exercise, and tells [[TopHeavyGuy Zangief]] that he should fatten up like Rufus to be healthy.
