In 1996, '''''Street Fighter EX''''' was developed by Arika (a company founded by ''VideoGame/FinalFight'' and ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'' co-designer Akira Nishitani) and published by Creator/{{Capcom}} as an attempt to bring the normally [=2D=] ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' series into true [=3D=]. The game saw the return of Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Guile (in his first game since ''Super Street Fighter II Turbo''), Zangief, Akuma and M. Bison. [[CanonForeigner New characters]], who are owned by both Capcom and Arika, were also added. These characters include:

* CanonImmigrant: As of ''Street Fighter V'', as it was revealed on Capcom's CFN website that [[spoiler: Zangief gave his Chess Piece to Darun Mister to keep safe]]. The CFN website has since added other characters from the EX series, implying that while their game of origin has no place in the ''Street Fighter'' canon, the characters themselves are still a part of the ''Street Fighter'' universe, even if they never show up as playable characters again.

* TheBusCameBack: Bison, Pullum, and Darun were retired in ''[=EX2=]'' before they returned in ''[=EX2=] Plus''. Sakura was exclusive to ''EX Plus α'' until she was brought back in ''[=EX3=]''.



* PutOnABus: Akuma, Blair, and Allen in all the entries after ''EX Plus α''. Hayate was retired in the arcade version of ''[=EX2=] Plus'' for unknown reasons (although he was brought back as a bonus character in the PS version).
** TheBusCameBack: Bison, Pullum, and Darun were also retired in ''[=EX2=]'', but unlike the others, they returned in ''[=EX2=] Plus''. Sakura was exclusive to ''EX Plus α'' until she was brought back in ''[=EX3=]''.
* {{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. Capcom's CFN website would later take elements from both backstories, i.e. saying Hokuto is descended from Bushin ninjas as well as being an heir to the Mizukami clan.
