Since the character "Oni" is supposed to be Akuma completely giving into the Satsui no Hado, maybe that's where the oni of Japanese mythology in general originate. Many Japanese myths seem to imply that oni can have human origins, so in the Street Fighter universe, this is probably exactly how it happens.

[[WMG: E. Honda is originally Japanese-American, but returned to his ancestral Japan to do sumo.]]
I mean, why would he have a name like Edmond? If he's ethnic Japanese ''and'' born/raised in Japan, I doubt he would have a Western name like that. So my guess is he wasn't.

Shadaloo is implied to be heavily involved in drug trafficking in several warrior's storylines. During the Alpha period, Bison is often fought in South America. We also know he bribes politicians and military staff to the point Shadaloo is an [[NGOSuperpower N.G.O. Superpower]]. In every ending, Charlie is betrayed by the army brass and killed. And the period roughly corresponds to the 80's. In real life, during the 80's, the CIA and US military were involved in drug trafficking to prop up [[YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters anti-communist rebels]] and [[BananaRepublic dictatorships]]. Some even suspect them of using the War on Drugs to destroy America's urban minority communities. M. Bison represents the South American drug lords and petty dictators, Charlie a patriotic American who takes the War on Drugs at face value, and his superiors the cynical intelligence agencies and chiefs of staff who will sacrifice their own citizens to realize their twisted schemes for the Americas.

** Well, don't forget that Yun appeared in a console version of Alpha 3. Also, we have to wait until the confirmation of the other 5 characters of [=SSFIV=] to see if Capcom "hates" SFIII. Maybe there will be one or two surprises. Plus, don't forget that Alex appears in [[CapcomVsWhatever Tatsunoko vs. Capcom]], the most recent game in the Vs. series.

Just [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6F5WWgGkKc#t=1m40s look]] at the result of [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Demitri's]] [[GenderBender Midnight Bliss]] on him. Then watch carefully when Demitri drains Hugo's lifeforce. Coincidence that Poison wants to manage him? [[note]]NOTE: I didn't know if I should put this here or in the CapcomVsWhatever entry[[/note]]

** Response from former ''Street Fighter'' fan Tropers/JusticeReaper: If [[DCComics comic]] [[MarvelComics books]] can have their own multiverses, why not ''Street Fighter''? And to the above poster, I think I may have preempted you and added to that multiverse with a fanfic I recently started writing ([[HighSchoolAU albeit with a few key differences]]).

* 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 ''VideoGame/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.

***At this point, whatever it stood for before, it now will stand for Marz. Hear me out; fear, hatred, despair, all the negativity-that's the essence of Psycho Power. Marz at the time of her fall is feeling all these. More than that, she's damaged from the fall itself, the fight with F.A.N.G, and the overload from earlier. Would she be able to hold off Bison's soul jumping into her? He already wanted a female body, anyway.

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).
