** Captain Sawada served as a substitute for Fei Long, who is the only character from the series at the time who didn't appear in the film. This was because of copyright issues due to Fei Long's resemblance to BruceLee. Among the other reasons, the producers deemed Fei Long "too generic" a character, the uncertainty of how a Hong Kong action movie star would fit in the story and the fact he would risk making Ken and Ryu seem redundant.
