This is based solely on the fact that Ken borrows the Ryubi Kyaku in ''Capcom vs. SNK'' and ''[=CvS2=]'' or, rather, uses an extremely similar special known as the Ryusenkyaku. (A wheel kick also popped up as his and Ryu's running kick attack in ''[[VideoGame/SuperGemFighter Pocket Fighter]]''.) Given the chronological placement of ''IV'' in the timeline and the similarities between Sean's Ryubi Kyaku/Ken's Ryusenkyaku and Abel's Wheel Kick, who's to say Ken didn't modify Abel's move for his own use and pass it on to his "pupil" by the time of ''III''? Ken himself doesn't use the move [[note]]in-universe, not due to the fact that ''III'' preceded ''[=CvS=]'' by 2-3 years[[/note]] because he possibly noticed some gaping flaw in the technique's execution or eventually surmised that it didn't fit his overall style, and Sean's version might be "incomplete" like his other derivatives of Ken's moves (which wouldn't be surprising seeing as Ken half-asses his teaching of Sean anyway).

Think about it: he's killed Goutetsu in the past, attacked Gouken once in Ryu's early years and again in his adult years, and has hounded Ryu to get him to draw out the Satsui no Hado inside of him and basically make him a second Akuma. While he may not like or even be aware of the other practitioners or imitators of the style (Ken, Sakura, Dan, Seth, Sean, Mel), if he even gets wind of some of their darker sides (Brainwashed/Violent Ken, Sunburnt/Dark Sakura, Dark/Evil Dan) or that they have Satsui no Hado potential, he will hound them mercilessly. He's been doing it to Ryu ever since the fateful encounter in SFA2 and he practically worships Ansatsuken and the Satsui no Hado. He'd try to bring that inherent aspect of that fighting style out of them in order to turn them into his definition of worthy opponents. Sakura and Dan's darker sides have shown to be capable of performing even the dreaded Shun Goku Satsu in some incarnations (although Dan didn't get to connect it thankfully when he tried it on Sakura), and as Dan pointed out Sakura has some ''terrifying potential''. By SF3 Ryu's officially axed the murderous intent, so Akuma has more targets to pursue.

* Definitely within the realm of possibility (just listen to his approval at facing Evil Ryu in ''IV''), but it goes without saying that Ken, Sakura, and Dan's "Evil" forms are non-canon (and Sunburnt Sakura doesn't actually have anything to do with the Satsui no Hadou). It's also worth nothing that, in light of his "meeting" with Gouken in ''IV'', Akuma may have been made to swear an oath to stop hounding Ryu if he lost their duel.

If that was the case, then that might explain how Guile got his shoulder tattoos; he purposely made his tattoos look like American flags so he can prove that he is not his grandfather and that what Stroheim did in life doesn't apply to what HE does in life. It might also explain why Guile was so close to his best friend [[VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha Charlie Nash]]; he was the one who defended Guile from people who picked him because of Stroheim, earning Guile's [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe steadfast loyalty]].

* By the way, some of them actually do that (mainly the ones who don't know about Shadaloo's Doll program, anyway). And Cammy herself is a big BerserkButton for Decapre, for rather obvious reasons (look up the [[Characters/StreetFighterIV SFIV Chars page]]).

[[WMG: Guile is a direct descendant of [[Anime/JoJosBizarreAdventure Rudolf von Stroheim]].]]

This has been in my mind for quite a while, so I might as well put this out now. I've noticed that a lot of elements of Stroheim's character design was put into Guile, to the point that Guile gained his '[[AnimeHair tall flat-top]]', his CoolShades, and patriotism. The only differences lie in their abilities (Stroheim is a cyborg while Guile can use ki energy), loyalties (Stroheim is a [[ThoseWackyNazis German Nazi]] while Guile is an [[EagleLand American]].), and personalities (Stroheim is a [[LargeHam hammy]] NobleBigot while Guile is a [[TheStoic stoic]] HurtingHero.)

I'd imagine that sometime before meeting Joseph Joestar in "Battle Tendency" and fighting the Pillar Men, Stroheim had a child with a blonde, blue-eyed German woman (because Nazis were obsessed with the [[MasterRace Aryan race]]), but he left because he was drafted into the army when World War II started. That child, either a son or daughter, eventually immigrated to America upon Stroheim's death and married someone there, and Guile was born. Because his grandfather was a Nazi, Guile was teased and bullied many times, most likely due to SinsOfOurFathers, even though Stroheim himself believed more in his country's strength and less on the Nazi philosophy on racial purity.

If that was the case, then that might explain how Guile got his shoulder tattoos; he purposely made his tattoos look like American flags so he can prove that he is not his grandfather and that what Stroheim did in life doesn't apply to what HE does in life. It might also explain why Guile was so close to his best friend [[VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha Charlie Nash]]; he was the one who defended Guile from people who picked him because of Stroheim, earning Guile's [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe steadfast loyalty]].

* Don't Cammy and Sari (Dhalsim's wife) make a cameo in the Judgment decision in ''3rd Strike''. There's also the case of Cody, Guy, Hugo/Andore (yes, they're the same person; WordOfGod has confirmed this), and Cammy appearing in ''FinalFight Streetwise'' (which would appear to occur much later in the overall timeline that any of the other entries in this SharedUniverse barring ''CaptainCommando''; Sodom and Poison [[WhatCouldHaveBeen were also planned to be in the game, with concept art of the two existing]]), but that seems to be CanonDiscontinuity on [[CanonDiscontinuity both]] [[FanonDiscontinuity ends]] of the market.

[[WMG: Aside from Maki FinalFight 2 and 3 are pretty much CanonDiscontinuity as far as the Franchise/StreetFighter series is concerned.]]
When Capcom wanted to fully add in Street Fighter characters they pretty much only focused on the first Final Fight and ignored the games SNES-only sequels. After all in Guy's ending for Street Fighter Alpha 2 Zeku is Guy's master even though according to Final Fight 2 Guy's Master is an elderly man by the name of Genryusai. Why does Guy have ShipTease moments with Rose in Street Fighter Alpha 3 and Street Fighter IV even though he is supposedly HappilyMarried to Rena? Simple - Rena no longer exists and Capcom assumed that nobody cared about FinalFight 2 so Guy gets to have an occasional tender moment or few with Rose.

Now you might be wondering what about Maki from FinalFight 2? How come she got excluded from the Limbo that Capcom has placed everyone else from the later 2 FinalFight games? Simple - at first she was going to share the others' fate but she got a lucky break when Capcom decided to make her into an UnexpectedCharacter addition to Capcom Vs. SNK 2. And since Capcom has already bothered to ever use her again they figured why not [[ThrowTheDogABone throw the fans a bone]] by actually acknowledging her existence in the Street Fighter series. Granted her role in the story is pretty much [[ExcusePlot trying to find Guy and defeat him in battle]] but at least she gets to be the (so far) sole FinalFight character that wasn't in the original game to appear in the Franchise/StreetFighter series.
