** 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 later adaptations do depict Zangief as a hero for Russia like how he is in the games.[[note]]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.[[/note]] ''Film/WreckitRalph'' has him as a "bad guy," but emphasizes that that's just his job in the game, and he's actually a nice guy.

** Sagat was more of a downplayed example of this. Yes, he was a villainous member of Shadaloo, but older and newer 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.

** This led to the inevitable MassiveMultiplayerCrossover (see VideoGame/CapcomVsWhatever for full details), which includes ''X-Men vs. Street Fighter'' (self-explanatory), ''Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter'' (again, self-explanatory), ''Marvel vs. Capcom'' (which now included characters from other Capcom games like VideoGame/MegaMan and VideoGame/CaptainCommando), ''Marvel vs. Capcom 2'' (which introduced even more Capcom characters, including some odd {{original|Generation}} ones like Amingo, the granddaughter of the original Son Son and the pirate Ruby Heart), ''Creator/{{Namco|Bandai}} [[VideoGame/NamcoXCapcom × Capcom]]'' (a genre shift to turn-based strategy RPG), ''Creator/{{Tatsunoko|Production}} [[VideoGame/TatsunokoVsCapcom vs. Capcom]]'' (self-explanatory), ''Marvel vs. Capcom 3'', ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone'' (a pair of sequels to ''Namco X Capcom'', which brought Creator/{{Sega}} into the mix in the first and Creator/{{Nintendo}} in the second), and ''Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite''.

** M. Bison's Psycho Power is stated to gain its strength from the suffering, fear and hatred of others. Bison himself embodies it and has become something no longer human (if he ever was human). Rose, on the other hand, embodies the good form (Soul Power) and is far weaker, but much kinder and more human (at least in appearance and behavior).

* DecompositeCharacter: Akuma and his brother Gouken both started as shout-outs to the fictional character of Sheng Long, who (thanks to UrbanLegendOfZelda) was believed to be Ryu and Ken's master. Akuma appears and defeats M. Bison, just as Sheng Long was rumored to do. Both inherited moves that Sheng Long was rumored to possess, such as air fireballs, red fireballs, and multi-fireballs. The fake design used in ''Electronic Gaming Monthly'' was even used as a basis for Gouken.

** It is retconned in the ''Alpha'' series that Ryu did not defeat Sagat at the first World Warrior competition. Sagat had Ryu utterly beaten before Ryu unleashed the [[SuperPoweredEvilSide Satsui No Hadou]] and sucker-punched Sagat after the match was technically over. All this serves to do is cast doubt on Ryu's status as Sagat's better, so that Sagat can still be technically undefeated.

* 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 outside of CallingYourAttacks (except for Dhalsim and Hakan).

* OnlyKnownByInitials: This only applies to western version of the game, in relation to M. Bison. No one knows what the "M" stands for in this case. In the original Japanese version, M. was simply short for "Mike", as Mike Bison was a thinly-veiled {{Expy}} of Mike Tyson. Other characters who use initials all have known first names (Edmond Honda, Thunder Hawk) or codenames (Crimson Viper, Rainbow Mika).

* MusclesAreMeaningless: Played straight and subverted at the same time. Larger and more muscular characters (such as Zangief, Alex and Hugo) tend to do more damage in single hits, as well as take more damage or possess SuperArmor. However, smaller characters may deal more damage overall (with combos or more DifficultButAwesome moves). Also, mass and weight do nothing to stop a character from being launched or juggled by smaller characters.

* NotJustATournament: In ''Street Fighter II'', Bison's holding a tournament to get revenge on the characters who ruined his plans in ''Alpha 3''. In ''Street Fighter IV'', Seth from S.I.N. (Shadaloo Intimidation Network, the weapons division of Shadaloo) holds a tournament to gain data (and Ryu) to complete his BLECE Project, an unknown bioweapon. The tournament in ''Street Fighter III: New Generation''/''2nd Impact'' subverts this, though. The Illuminati is judging people worldwide to see who is fit to live in the new utopian world foretold in their ominous prophecy. Their leader [[MessianicArchetype Gill]] is a WellIntentionedExtremist.
