* Almost all of the Street Fighter characters have tragic backstories, with most of them involving being affected by a member of Shadaloo in some way (Guile, Charlie, Chun-Li, T. Hawk, Juri, Dan, Cammy, the Dolls, etc.), but also involving broken homes (Remy, Vega), being survivors of tragic incidents (Blanka, Dhalsim, F.A.N.G), being the results of experimentation (Necro, Abel), or being orphaned (Ryu).

** The incident was revisited in ''Unlimited'' [[spoiler:where Dan finally corners Sagat. Sagat, regretting his past actions and how they affected Dan, offers up his head so Dan can find closure for Go's death. Though clearly tempted, Dan ultimately refuses the chance to take revenge and walks away in bitter tears, saying the only thing he wants is his father back. '''''Ouch'''''.]]

* * Many victory quotes against Evil Ryu in the Arcade Edition of ''IV'', especially from friends and associates of Ryu, express severe shock, sadness, concern or disappointment at his fall from grace. Some are quite heartbreaking.

* ''Generations'' may not be fully canon, but damn it is depressing. Specially in [[spoiler: the flashbacks to Akuma and Gouken's more or less happy lives before it went FromBadToWorse]], and the BittersweetEnding where [[spoiler: Akuma recovers some parts of his humanity after almost killing Ryu in battle (and mind you, this particular AlternateUniverse all but states that ''Ryu is Akuma's son'')]] and later [[spoiler: the OldMaster that Ryu befriends passes away, and Ryu leaves after mourning him.]]

* Juri's backstory, first revealed in the ''Super Street fighter IV: Juri OVA'' above, was expanded by UDON. [[spoiler:She was a Taekwondo prodigy who was frequently pressured to uphold her family name, and her parents, while loving, were strict and demanding. Her father's decision to prosecute Shadaloo led to Juri's mother being killed, and him being ransomed and publicly executed on camera. Juri, however, survived, but she lost her left eye to a stray bullet when Shadaloo attacked and fell into a coma for a month. All of this left Juri with a very intense hatred of Shadaloo, Bison in particular]].

* Rashid's entire storyline can count. He desperately tries to rescue his friend, a female scientist forced to work for Shadaloo. He even went so far as to work with the , who clearly don't care about his dilemma. [[spoiler: Tragically, he was too late as she was already murdered by F.A.N.G. Even worse, it happened just as Rashid was infiltrating the base, meaning he could have saved her if he didn't stop to rescue Li-Fen. Still, like Charlie above, he gets a CrowningMomentOfAwesome when he avenges her death by beating the crap out of F.A.N.G and using her final command code to stop the Black Moons.]]
