** To further the [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure Jojo]] references, one of Zangief's new win poses is thrusting one of his hands upwards and yell in the most patriotic fervor: "Russian Wrestling is always Number One!", when translated to Japanese, it becomes "Rusian Wurestolinggu ga SEKAI ICHI!!", which was a spin to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7w8aG3VhArE Stroheim's memetic line about Nazi Science]]

** Some of his basic moves mimic the Illuminati brothers from ''III'' (such as his crouch Roundhouse) and his Focus Attack is a shoulder slam taking the appearance of Urien's Chariot Tackle. In the Omega mode of Ultra, this gets upgraded to a legit Chariot Tackle.

** In the [[Film/StreetFighter live-action movie]], Bison states that his Psycho Power (the term was not used in the movie) was "merely superconductor electromagnetism" (the details of the power was not revealed until the ''Alpha'' games, which was released later), which sounds like [[SelfDemonstrating/{{Magneto}} Magneto's mutant powers]]. ([[VideoGame/XMenVsStreetFighter They later clashed with each other.]])

The Omega Mode mentions for Sagat, Balrog, and Ibuki (i.e. gaining back old moves from previous games) don't really qualify for Shout-Out status (unless you want to do that for everyone it applies to in Ultra). Feel free to edit them back in if you feel otherwise.
Here we're going to list the references ({{Captain Ersatz}}es, {{Exp|y}}ies, {{Shout Out}}s, {{Mythology Gag}}s, "NoCelebritiesWereHarmed", etc.) of the ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' series.

** While Charlie is Guile's {{expy}} moveset-wise, in-universe, Charlie taught him those moves and was ultimately more proficient with them (such as performing his Sonic Booms with one hand or--in the case of his Sonic Break super--with his leg and performing the Somersault Shell/Flash Kick [[BadassBack backwards]]) than Guile, whose skills were hampered by his lack of emotional control at the time. As a CallBack to all of this, Flash Explosion (Guile's first Ultra in ''IV'') has Guile performing a Charlie-style Flash Kick as his second move, showing that Guile has finally been able to fully grasp his late best friend's teachings. This reaches its zenith in 'Ultra IV'' where Omega mode Guile has Charlie's Sonic Break has an EX move.

** His Final Destruction Super in ''Alpha 3'' is an extended reference to the arcade version of ''Final Fight'', where, playing as Cody, you could hit the opponent twice, turn around, quickly turn back, and repeat, for an infinite combo. The X-Ism version of this move simply turns his punches into his basic combo from ''FF'' and his jumping kick into the Crack Kick.
