* {{Retcon}}:
** The original backstories for most of the new characters featured ties to numerous established ''Street Fighter'' characters (Hokuto is a student of the Bushin school of ninjutsu, Doctrine Dark was a former subordinate of Guile who was injured by Rolento, Jack is a former Shadaloo enforcer, Allen lost to Ken once, Pullum Purna's family has ties to Shadaloo and Darun is a rival to both Zangief and [[VideoGame/SaturdayNightSlamMasters Victor Ortega]]). In ''Street Fighter [=EX2=]'', all of these backstories were rewritten to downplay and even contradict these connections (such as claiming that Hokuto and Kairi's school is known as the Mizukami style and that Doctrine Dark's insanity was due to him being raised as a child mercenary) once it was established that Arika owned all of the new characters.

* TeamSpirit: With ''[=EX3=]''[='s=] partner matches, if one character was defeated, their accumulated super meter gauge would be transferred to the remaining teammate in what is known as Emotional Flow. At this point, the second character would now be able to hold up to six bars of super meter as opposed to the normal three.
* UnblockableAttack: The Guard Break. In ''[=EX3=]'', this would be replaced by the Surprise Blow, which no longer cost super meter, but could be blocked. It still stunned the opponent, but only if they were crouching; if it successfully struck a midair opponent, they'd immediately be knocked to the ground instead of how Guard Breaks would pop them up into the air for a juggle.

* SkeletonMotif: Skullomania wears a full body suit that has skeletons painted over his whole body. Subverted in that not only he's a hero, he's a clear-cut and rather silly one as well.

In 1998, ''Street Fighter [=EX2=]'' was released with the added feature of using custom combos (another feature similar to the ''Alpha'' series). This game also marks the first time that a ''Street Fighter'' game with its own sub-series removes characters from the roster as Akuma, Sakura, M. Bison, Pullum, Darun, Allen, and Blair were cut. In their place came ''Street Fighter II'' veterans Blanka and Vega and four newcomers:

Bison, Pullum, Darun, Allen, and Blair were cut. In their place came ''Street Fighter II'' veterans Blanka and Vega and four newcomers:



''Street Fighter [=EX2=] Plus'' brought back Pullum, Darun, and Bison and then added Ryu's rival Sagat, Area (a young inventor with a giant mechanical arm), and Vulcano Rosso ([[LiteralMetaphor fiery]] Italian fighter). Hayate was removed from the arcade version of ''[=EX2=] Plus'', but returned for the [=PlayStation=] version. ''[=EX2=] Plus'' also added Meteor Combos, a precursor to the Ultra Combo system later introduced in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV''. Aside from Super Cancels, ''[=EX2=]'' allowed for Super Combos to be cancelled into a Guard Break (Cancel Break, which could then be followed up by another Super Cancel if the player had enough/infinite meter) or a Meteor Combo (if the game allowed the player at the time to have infinite super meter or more than three bars). ''[=EX2=]'' also added Excel Combos, custom combos similar to the ones seen in ''Alpha 2'' and ''Alpha 3''.

Two {{Updated Rerelease}}s were created as ''Street Fighter EX Plus'', adding dark versions of Ryu (Evil Ryu) and Hokuto (Bloody Hokuto), and Cycloid-β (Beta) and Cycloid-γ (Gamma), two cyborg {{ditto fighter}}s with no faces (Gamma's a wireframe). PlayStation-exclusive ''Street Fighter EX Plus α'' added familiar faces Dhalsim and Sakura.

PlayStation-exclusive UsefulNotes/PlayStation-exclusive ''Street Fighter EX Plus α'' added familiar faces Dhalsim and Sakura.



In 2000, ''Street Fighter [=EX3=]'' came out exclusively for the {{PlayStation 2}}. A tag team system was added, complete with various new gameplay mechanics such as [[CombinationAttack Meteor Tag Combos]], but it wasn't well received. Everyone from ''[=EX2=] Plus'' (except Hayate) returned, as did Sakura. Ace, the sole new character for the game, was a character that can have moves added to his move list. Guard Breaks were replaced by the somewhat similar Surprise Blow, losing their unblockable properties but able to stun crouching opponents and floor airborne ones as well as costing no meter to use, while Momentary Combos, two special inputs for each character allowing them to cancel from one special move to another unique special with the press of a precisely-timed single punch or kick, were added. ''[=EX3=]'' was the final game and the least successful.

** Even the characters without connection to Capcom characters were also altered: Skullomania was changed from a salaryman to a defector from a dictatorial country in the second game.
