* AddedAlliterativeAppeal: A few win quotes have fun with this concept:
--> '''Akuma''' ''(vs. Poison)'' ''':''' "''Such frivolous fighting folly is beneath my cantankerous contempt!''"\\
'''Gen''' ''(vs. Vega, ''Super'' onwards)'' ''':''' "''Keep your nauseating narcissistic nattering to yourself, nitwit!''"

* RegionalSpeciality: Used in El Fuerte's ending, [[spoiler:where he mixes Zangief's and E. Honda's favourite foods, Chankonabe and Borscht, and add chilli peppers and lemon to the mix. The results apparently tasted very bad, as Honda and Zangief's faces turn blue with disgust. Then El Fuerte proclaims the food "tastes so great it sends you straight to heaven!"]]

The original twelve characters from the original ''Street Fighter II'' and Akuma returned, along with six new warriors: American spy Crimson Viper, French martial artist Abel, Mexican luchador El Fuerte, American {{acrofatic}} Rufus, Ryu and Ken's master and Akuma's brother Gouken, and the BigBad Seth. The home console versions additionally included more returning characters from ''Super Street Fighter II'' (Cammy and Fei Long) and ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha Alpha]]'' (namely Gen, Dan, Sakura, and Rose), along with the bosses being made playable. Gouken, Ryu and Ken's mysterious master, finally appears on-screen for the first time in the series.

* GameplayAndStorySegregation:
** Comparing the tier listings to the power relation of characters in-game makes for interesting reading. Ryu is several tiers higher than Ken and Sagat, and virtually always above Gouken, but Sakura is higher than him. Akuma trumps all of them, and indeed everyone (with the possible exception of Cammy), and is indeed higher tier than Oni. The three teenage girl characters (Sakura, Makoto, Ibuki) are all A-tier or above. Normal Ryu is consistently above his Evil self, despite Evil Ryu's power being greater in theory (''Ultra'' seemingly rectifies this). Seth is higher tier than Bison, so maybe he really has [[spoiler:exceeded his creator]]. Rufus is considerably higher tier than Ken and Balrog is above Dudley by some distance.
** Some of the Rival battles, in that case, should be over before they start. Seth is rarely below A+ tier while Hakan is rarely above B tier (bearing in mind that Dan is a C tier character). Similarly, there should be no reason that C. Viper should ever lose to Chun-Li, and neither for that matter should Gen. Rose and Yang's Rival matches against Ryu, however, should be incredibly hard to win on high difficulties. The hardest one, though, would be Dan against Sakura -- requiring you to beat a top-tier character with a bottom-tier one.
** ''Ultra'' has, purposefully or not, rectified this extensively. Ryu is now as average in-game as he is story-wise, and Gouken is just barely above Akuma (in the eyes of most). Still present to a degree, as Evil Ryu is still miles above most other characters, and Yun is far more powerful then he should be. It's much harder to say for the rest of the cast since characters' power has never been well defined outside of the Ansatsuken users, and the playable versions of Gouken, Akuma, and Evil Ryu are all purposefully holding back, and playable Bison and Oni are both constrained from utilizing their full strength.
*** With the 1.04 update, Ryu now plays this straight since his buffs now move him to well above average.

** Seth's [[ShowerScene shower scene]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9vowj3lJeg in his animated intro.]] Him being a [[CreatorsPet creator's pet]] ''and'' the big bad isn't what makes this a disservice, but his metallic skin tone and how he is, well, ''way'' too muscled for some fans' comfort.

** If there's a Cody {{mirror match}}, only one of the two can pick up his knife. [[http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/streetfighter/images/6/6a/Noknife.jpg The loser displays a shocked expression when the other Cody retrieves it.]]
