* WhatTheFuAreYouDoing: Two bonus rounds involve Ryu/Ken trying to break brick pieces. It's possible to break all of them, some of them, or none at all. The latter instance will causes the character to look like this with booing sounds in the background to match.

** Ken was originally Japanese in this game, as evident by the fact that his name is spelled in kanji in the game's Japanese brochure and other promotional materials. ''Street Fighter II'' turned him into an American immigrant before retconning him into a native-born American of (mostly) Japanese descent.
** If you're expecting the game to end with Ryu defeating Sagat with his Dragon Punch, leaving Sagat with his iconic chest scar that served as the foundation of his heated rivalry with Ryu for sequels to come, then you'll be disappointed to learn that there's no such ending in this game. That was purely a retcon from ''Street Fighter II''. Not only is there no scar, Sagat takes his defeat quite well. Later on, this too gets retconned. Ryu ''didn't'' win the tournament, Sagat did. However Ryu's darker instincts took over and he scarred Sagat with a cheap shot Metsu Shoryuken after the match ended.

* NintendoHard: Even by ''Street Fighter'' standards, this game can be particularly unforgiving, [[SomeDexterityRequired especially if you don't know how to pull off special moves]].[[note]]You have to release the buttons as opposed to just pressing them, as a technique that would later be known as Negative Edge in modern fighting games.[[/note]]

** Ken didn't even participate in this tournament, according to later series canon. In this period, he was still working the U.S. martial arts circuit and won the national championship. His return to Japan to inform his master, Gouken, of his victory takes place around the time when Ryu was participating in this tournament and that's when he discovers Akuma's handiwork.
