** 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.

It was a far cry from [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII the sequel]] that revolutionized the industry, but it did feature many of the staples of the series: a six-button control setup, the best-out-of-three match structure, Ryu and Ken, naturally, and even many of the now-common motions for special attacks. Alternate arcade cabinets could be found that were also the first to use a two-button, pressure sensitive layout rather than the standard cherry switch six button layout, one for punches and one for kicks, to control the strength of the attack. It was confusing to use and more expensive to maintain than most standard cabinets, so a version that featured the more familiar six-button configuration seen in all the follow ups was offered as a cheaper alternative.

[[SequelDisplacement Although not many people know this]], there was a ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' game before ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII''.

''Street Fighter'' is a {[fighting game}} that was released in arcades in 1987. The game features two martial artists, Ryu and Ken, who travel around the world taking on some of the best fighters in the world, culminating with a match against the massive Thai kickboxer Sagat.

** 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.

*** Ken didn't even participate in this tournament, according to later series canon. In this period he was still working the US 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.
