* AdaptationDyeJob: Vega, who was blonde in the video game. Also, went from pale to [[LatinoIsBrown brown-skinned]].



* AffablyEvil: Zangief genuinely believes that Bison is a wise leader and that he's fighting for the good guys. He sees their organization as some inspiring movement and expresses love for their "team spirit" while instructing Ken and Ryu.

** Bison is from an unspecified country, but is portrayed by the great Puerto Rican actor, Raúl Juliá, with no mention at all of the character's origins. It's even stranger when you factor in Ming-Na, an actress from Macau. In the games, Chun-Li is an Interpol agent whose father, a detective, was killed while investigating the global Shadaloo syndicate. But this film seems to suggest Bison is concentrated in a single backwater country.

* IJustShotMarvinInTheFace: Notably ''{{averted|Trope}}'' in the scene when Sagat is making his weapons deal with Bison, everybody is keeping their fingers off the triggers and appears to be pointing the weapons away from each other (though of course, they are in a large room and it's unclear if they are pointing the weapons at anybody ''[[WhatMeasureIsAMook else]]'').

* LoadBearingHero: Zangief in particular.



* NoPronunciationGuide: Ryu's name is incorrectly pronounced "Rye-you". Ironically, Guile, who fails to pronounce every other word in the dictionary, is the only character capable of saying it right. Bison gets it right, too, but he screws up Zangief's name right before that.

This is quite funny when you realize this pretty much accurately portrays how FinalBoss AI tends to work in {{fighting game}}s.

The film is also noticeable for the late Raul Julia's portrayal of Bison which would be his final role. He took the job knowing he was dying of stomach cancer and [[SoMyKidsCanWatch let his children pick out which movie would be his last]], and apparently wanted to [[HamAndCheese go out on a loud note]] for his final performance.

** Dhalsim, who goes from a [[RubberMan stretching]], fire-breathing yoga master, to a bullied lab technician with no powers. Supposedly, he would have gotten his powers in the sequel, but it was never made. Though the American cartoon have Dhalsim resemble his video game counterpart more closely, but still had a role in turning Blanka into a monster.

* CaliforniaDoubling: During the assault scenes on Bison's fortress, the Gold Coast hinterlands of Queensland, Australia fill in for South East Asia. The copious number of gumtrees make it rather obvious.
