* BootstrappedTheme: Every character, as early as ''II''. Back then, the music was associated to the stages, not to the characters, but since each of them had their own home stage, the music effectively extended to the character who were based in each stage. It went to an extent that the ''SFII'' music was remixed into the World Warriors' new stages in ''Alpha'' and ''Alpha 2'', and solidified by the time of ''IV'', as the concept of home stages had been ditched altogether.

* BootstrappedTheme: Every character, as early as ''II''. This is because the music was for the stage, and not its respective character.

** Zangief is easily the most infamous example as he was often depicted as a member of Shadaloo in various [[Film/StreetFighter American]] and [[Anime/StreetFighterIIV Japanese]] adaptations of the series back in the 1990s. The only cinematic adaptation during the '90s that didn't cast Zangief as a villain was ''Anime/StreetFighterIITheAnimatedMovie'' and he just had a cameo fight with Blanka. Fortunately for Zangief, this trend seems to have stopped over the course of the 2000s as more recent adaptations do depict Zangief as a hero for Russia like how he is in the games (Dee Jay was also depicted as a Shadaloo member in the first live action ''Film/StreetFighter'' movie, but unlike Zangief, this was the only time).
** Sagat was more of a downplayed example of this. Yes, he was a villainous member of Shadaloo, but old and even recent adaptations have a strong tendency to play up his role with Shadaloo a lot more than the games did, normally depicting him as someone who has committed various crimes under Shadaloo, while in the games, he is more of a {{noble demon}} who really didn't do much for Shadaloo (especially during the ''Alpha'' series where Sagat really started to play up his noble demon persona). Adon has also been depicted as a Shadaloo member in certain ''Street Fighter'' manga adaptations, but while Adon is indeed quite the ArrogantKungFuGuy, he was never really deemed a villain in the games.

* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: While for the most part the cast of the games have plausible skin tones, the series manages to give us a few exceptions: we have green-skinned Blanka, blood-red Hakan[[note]]which is basically an exaggeration on the results of consistently oiling up in a Mediterranean country[[/note]], yellow-toned Oro, Necro and Twelve that are as white as the snow, [[ThatOneBoss Gill]] who's ''half red, half blue'', no less, Dhalsim who also tends to have some unnatural alternate skin colors like grey or orange among the others, Birdie who has a green color, grey M. Bison, slate-Blue Seth.[[note]]Seth is justified since he's an artificial creation.[[/note]] And let's not get started about the various {{palette swap}}s.

* DivergentCharacterEvolution: Ryu and Ken used to be identical in almost every aspect gameplay-wise ([[JustifiedTrope justified]] as it was the only way back then to have a pure [[MirrorMatch mirror match]]), but from ''Super Street Fighter II'' onward, they both received several changes that made the characters much different from each other (Ryu's refined Hadouken techniques, Ken's different kicks and the Flaming Shoryuken). In ''3rd Strike'', Ken's EX Hurricane Kick hit multiple times and launch the enemy while Ryu's hits once for the normal versions and hits the enemy away while keeping him in place in the EX version (i.e. his Shinku Tatsumaki Senpuukyaku super is downgraded into his EX Tatsu).

ShoutOut sheet found [[ShoutOut/StreetFighter here]].



!!{{Trope Namer}}s from entire series:
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: With HamAndCheese.
* CapcomSequelStagnation: Perhaps the purest example alongside ''Franchise/MegaMan''.
* CherryTapping
* {{Combos}} as we know them wouldn't exist without ''Street Fighter''.
* HurricaneKick: Also known as the Tatsumaki Senpuukyaku.
* KamehameHadoken: The second part of the name is the name of the fireball move by Ryu, Ken, and others (just wasn't called that in the West, even though they still said it in the game). [[note]]The [[EnergyBall regular Hadouken]] and its Shinkuu Hadouken Super Combo variant usually do not count. It is in only in crossovers (''[=MvC=]'' and ''[=TvC=]'' [[PowerCreepPowerSeep in particular]]) where the Shinkuu Hadouken assumes the form of a giant beam of ki associated with the trope.[[/note]]
* LetsFightLikeGentlemen: [[CulturedBadass Courtesy of]] [[VideoGame/StreetFighterIII Dudley]].
* {{Shoryuken}}: From the Dragon Punch... sorry... ''Rising Dragon Fist'', to the Tiger Uppercut, and even kick versions with Chun-Li (Tenshokyaku), Cammy (Cannon Spike), and Fei Long (Shienkyaku).
* {{Shotoclone}}: Ryu, Ken, Akuma, Dan, Sakura, and Sean; Sean's projectile attacks take the form of basketballs (save for his first Super Art, the Hadou Burst), though. Amazingly enough, Gouken is actually a ''subversion'' of this, as he fights very differently from the typical Ryu/Ken-type -- he does have his own unique take on the Hadouken, but his Shoryuken is only used as a super, and he has many other moves that no other Ryu/Ken-type has. There's also Allen Snider and Kairi from the ''EX'' series; Kairi, in particular, became the Akuma analogue when Akuma [[PutOnABus left]] after the first game.

* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: The English voice work in the games and adaptations have a tendency to play with this. If you are from Europe, or to a lesser extent the Americas, you will probably get an accent. If you are from Asia, you most likely will not (except for Dhalsim and Hakan).

** Subverted in ''Street Fighter III 2nd Impact''. Every character that returned from ''New Generation'', excluding Ken, Sean, and Gill, received a new version of their previous theme, but in ''3rd Strike'', everyone except for Alex and Yun & Yang (who kept [[AwesomeMusic/StreetFighter "Jazzy NYC" and "Crowded Street"]] from the past two installments) were given new themes. In fact, Dudley and Ibuki's themes in ''IV'' are based off of their ''3rd Strike'' themes.
