* SharedUniverse: Many of Capcom's in-house titles are implied through cameos and crossovers to be in one centered around ''VideoGame/StreetFighter''.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFight'' is outright confirmed to be this through a number of playable character and stage appearances across the ''Street Fighter'' series. In fact the first ''Final Fight'' was supposed to be called ''Street Fighter '89'', which would leave no question what universe it was in, but had its title changed due to the dev team catching on late to how differently it played than previous ''SF'' games.
** ''VideoGame/CaptainCommando'' is set in a future version of the same city as ''Final Fight'', cofirming its place in the 'verse by proxy.[[note]]Although the online profile for one of Ibuki's friends in the ''Street Fighter V'' site indicates it actually exists as a fictional beat'em up in-universe.[[/note]]
** ''VideoGame/SaturdayNightSlamMasters'' has enough ''Final Fight'' and ''Street Fighter'' cameos it can't be written off as a simple marketing nod.
** ''VideoGame/RivalSchools'' and ''Street Fighter''[='=]s fighting schoolgirl characters are established as associates through various cameos.
** ''Franchise/MegaMan'' would have to be in the future in order to work, but the SignatureMove of ''Street Fighter'' is hidden as an EasterEgg that can be used by the PlayerCharacter in a lot of the games.[[note]]''Street Fighter V'' story mode "A Shadow Falls", however, has Sean playing an undisclosed ''Mega Man'' game on his handheld.[[/note]]

*** Two.P (one of the {{Mook}}s from ''VideoGame/FinalFight'') was designed after the 2P Unknown Soldier from ''VideoGame/ForgottenWorlds'', but his ''Street Fighter V'' website profile heavily implies they are the same character, who somehow ended up at the side of some road, shirtless[[note]]The Unknown Soldiers' initial state before picking an armor powerup[[/note]] and with no memories of his past.
