** Ken Masters, the series' deuteragonist, is also based on Lewis. Joe Lewis was an American who learned a traditional style of Karate in Japan, only to come back to the U.S and become the champion, first in karate tournaments, then in Kickboxing and Full Contact Karate (both sports that he actually created, at least in the West). He was a friend and student of Bruce Lee, and during the height of his fame, he appeared several times on various media sporting his well-known RED colored Karate uniform and the long, flowing blonde hair he used to have at the moment. Just looking at one of these covers is enough to convince one that Joe, voted as "Greatest Karate fighter" by the likes of Chuck Norris, is the basis for Ken known for his red gi, blonde hair and for being an American who studied a traditional style of Karate-like martial art in Japan and coming back to the U.S to become a world famous Champion. This makes Joe Lewis the only man to have two SF characters based on him.

** The first appearance in a media after the first ''Street Fighter'' was in Masahiko Nakahira's ''Street Fighter Alpha'' manga, showing Eagle defeated by Adon. His outlook in this manga could be based for his redesign in ''Videogame/CapcomVsSNK2'' and later in ''Alpha 3'' portable versions.

** Each of Eagle's special attacks and Super Combos are named after a British city, locale, or historical reference.
** Because of his fighting style and the double stick he uses, Eagle is compared with [[VideoGame/ArtOfFighting Mr. Big]]. Or maybe he could be based on Eagle, due to the creators of the first game went to SNK to create ''Art of Fighting'' and ''Fatal Fury''.
* '''Birdie''', as well Eagle, is named after a Golf term.
** [[WordOfGod As stated in his story]], he was a wrestler and with a rivalry with Titanic Tim from ''VideoGame/SaturdayNightSlamMasters''.
** In his ''SFV'' appearance, he wears a tattoo on his stomach similar to Wrestling/CMPunk.



* One of '''Blanka''''s alternate costumes in ''Super Street Fighter IV'' looks exactly like Lobo.

** And he shared a similar backstory than [[VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha Birdie]].
** His appearance is based on ''Manga/LupinIII''[='s=] Daisuke Jigen. [[Creator/BanjoGinga Jack's seiyuu]] also voiced Jigen for one of Lupin's movies: ''The Plot of the Fuma Clan''.



* '''Ace'''[='s=] [[http://images.wikia.com/streetfighter/images/a/ae/SFEX2Ace.jpg design]] draws ''heavily'' from that of [[http://www.fightabase.com/charMain.aspx?id=1760 Haiji Mibu]] from the 1998 Psikyo/Steel Hearts fighter ''The Fallen Angels/Daraku Tenshi''.

Added DiffLines:

* '''Hokuto''' bears a strong resemblance to SNK's Kasumi Todoh from ''VideoGame/ArtOfFighting'' and ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' series.
** Her secret alternate costume as "Bloody Hokuto" also resembles Reiku Hakurei from ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' series.

** There's a pit fighter in ''Videogame/FinalFightStreetwise'' who looks and fights a lot like Joe called [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname "Ghost"]]. If Ghost is ''really'' Ghost in this game is unknown.

** Latin American fans (and especially from UsefulNotes/{{Chile}}) believe M. Bison could be based on local military dictators in TheSeventies, mostly UsefulNotes/AugustoPinochet as seen in pics like [[http://www.contrainjerencia.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/Pinochet.jpg this]] and [[https://media1.britannica.com/eb-media/75/92975-004-161CFD5C.jpg this]]. Even the spanish version of Wiki/{{Uncyclopedia}} [[http://inciclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/Street_Fighter jokes about it]].



** Due to him being based off of Robert Garcia, he ends up looking like Creator/StevenSeagal, something that is made even more noticeable with his appearance in ''IV''. [[http://imagenes.viciojuegos.com/img/reportajes/504/dan-seagal-hibiki.jpg Behold!]]

** And about the movie, in ''Alpha 2'' there's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZtv8o_z0vE Australian Outback stage]], which pays homage to the first scene with Ryu and Sagat fighting under the storm. Also, this is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9XmsIUATwK8 Sagat's last stage]], with Ryu as his FinalBoss.



** Her schoolgirl outfit resembles a lot of [[VideoGame/RivalSchools Taiyo High School uniform]].
** Her kunai throw move resembles a lot of Rolento's Stinger move. Probably Capcom is aware of this making her cosplay of Rolento in ''VideoGame/SuperGemFighter'' and having him as partner in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterXTekken''.




to:

* '''Rashid''' is an arabic version of [[Manga/DragonBallZ Vegeta]], scouter eyepiece included.
** Rashid seems to have similarities with Shaheem from ''VideoGame/Tekken 7'', another arabic character.
** Also, he has been compared to Alfred Airhawk from ''[[VideoGame/FatalFury Real Bout Fatal Fury 2: Dominated Minds]]''.
* '''Laura''' shares some similarities with other brazilian fighters from ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'': Eddy Gordo, Christie Monteiro and Katarina Alves.
** Not to mention she's also able to manage electricity like Blanka, and both character are from Brazil.
** And visually looks a lot like Black Orchid from ''VideoGame/KillerInstinct'' series.

* Given his appearance and backstory, '''Allen''' might very well be the ''SF'' equivalent of ChuckNorris.

** The [[MonumentalBattle Rome stage]] shared by Rose and Birdie in ''Street Fighter Alpha'' is taken directly from the Creator/BruceLee film ''Film/WayOfTheDragon'' where he fights ChuckNorris in the Coliseum. [[CuteKitten Stray cats]] are seen watching the fight in the film, as well.

* '''Urien''' could be confused for [[KingOfFighters Yashiro Nanakase's]] twin, especially with his StreetFIghterV look. Furthermore both Yashiro and Urien have earth elements as part of their powers.
