* TalkingToHimself: The laziest case in the series. Everyone not named Chun-Li had the same voice set. This was fixed in ''Super''.

** "You must defeat Sheng Long to stand a chance!" This mistranslation of Ryu's winquote ("You have no chance against my Dragon Punch!") resulted in a long-standing rumor that Sheng Long was a SecretChracter or BonusBoss. EGM's running of an April Fools' Day hoax article purporting to give instructions on how to fight him only fueled it further, but also resulted in the birth of Akuma (and indirectly, Gouken.)

* AscendedFanon: How Akuma was conceived. ''EGM'' created Sheng Long (the would-be [[VideoGame/StreetFighterIV Gouken]]) for one of their infamous April Fools' articles and caused fans to swarm to arcades to find him. Capcom USA ended up calling Capcom of Japan about this secret boss character, and so they decided to go with it and add in Akuma.

The method to summon him in ''Turbo'' is a greatly simplified version of the hilariously impossible instructions in the joke article.

*** Mexican gamers gamers calls E. Honda as "Porky" or "Super Porky" (after a famous Mexican wrestler) since Honda is fat and his ramming head-butt attack (the famous "Dosukoi") sounds like he's saying "oink oink" instead in Spanish.

** More like ''Fan Abbreviation'', but many fans just call Zangief as plain ol' Gief. Also "Blue/Green hand" for his Banishing Flat.

* SerendipityWritesThePlot: Dee Jay's pants [[WhatCouldHaveBeen were originally going to have "MANTIS" printed on them]], but "MANTIS" was changed to "MAXIMUM" so that the letters would have the horizontal symmetry necessary for an AmbidextrousSprite.

* UrbanLegendOfZelda: "You must defeat Sheng Long to stand a chance!" ** [[RippedFromTheHeadlines Right off the heels of the Mike Tyson ear bite]], rumors persisted that you could become a CoolLoser by cancelling Boxer's Megaton Punch into a hidden Super Combo just as the punch lands. Rotate the controller full-circle twice and hit all three buttons and Boxer will lock his opponent in a headlock and start biting until [[VideoGame/FinalFight Edi. E]] busts Balrog and carts him off to jail, forfeiting the match. ** AscendedMeme: In ''Super IV'' he gets a new Ultra called Dirty Bull which, before ''AE'', was two full-circle controller rotations and involves illegal boxing maneuvers such as sucker punching, stepping on someone's foot, and clinching.

* RetroactiveRecognition: YokoShimomura, the woman behind the music of ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG'', ''VideoGame/ParasiteEve'', ''VideoGame/{{Legend of Mana}}'', ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' and ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigi Mario & Luigi]]'', composed almost the entire soundtrack of the original games. The only tracks she didn't do were Sagat's theme and the round start/new challenger jingles.
