* FalseFlagOperation: The plot to "Keeping the Peace". A dictator of a neighboring country plants a bomb in his own mine so that when it explodes, people will assume it came from the other country and support his planned military takeover of their land. It's up to Guile and Sawada to stop him.

** Cammy [[spoiler:being brainwashed by Bison.]] This is especially notable because the overseas version of ''Super Street Fighter II'' rewrote Cammy's ending to imply that she was Bison's lover and not necessarily an agent. However, the writers ''did'' throw in plenty of subtext between them.

* CulturalTranslation: In two ways. First off, Guile is clearly intended to be the primary character of the series. This goes to the point that he overshadowed Ryu and Ken themselves.[[note]]Guile was only absent in four episodes throughout the series. These episodes, wouldn't you know it, centered around Ryu and/or Ken. They are: "The World's Greatest Warrior", "So, You Want to Be in Pictures", "The Flame and the Rose" and "Final Fight."[[/note]] Secondly, Ken, the American half of the duo, was the one who received most of the spotlight in comparison to Ryu (the Japanese half). For example, Ken was the only character who actually defeated [[spoiler:Akuma]] in single combat and became "The World's Greatest Warrior" for his success.[[note]]In the games' continuity, Akuma considers Ryu closer to being a WorthyOpponent due to his potential to tap into the Satsui no Hado, and sees Ken as an amateur at best.[[/note]] And not only is Ken constantly a douche about being better than Ryu ([[{{Jerkass}} among other things]]), the show itself helps him back it up by making Ryu seem incompetent in comparison. For example, in "Second to None", the closest thing Ryu got to a focus episode, Sagat thrashes him effortlessly - twice - and the episode makes it seem Ryu only beat him both times out of luck.

* DoomsdayDevice: In "Cammy Tell Me True," Bison, under the influence of a priceless statue [[spoiler:Cammy]] stole for him in a previous episode, decides not to TakeOverTheWorld, but instead destroy it (an idea that the statue had planted in his mind since "The Flame and the Rose") by activating all the nuclear missiles on Earth.
* DreamWithinADream: Seen in "Getting to Guile". Guile first dreams that a bunch of hostages are vaporized and wakes up. He then goes to work and meets with Escher, who suddenly turns into a werewolf.

* LimitedWardrobe: Many of the Street Fighters wear the same thing all the time, even in places where it would be seen as unprofessional or impractical. Averted by Chun-Li, however, who wears some casual clothes in her hotel room in "Getting to Guile", and a business casual lavender skirt when she works as a reporter. This is also averted in "The Warrior King", when she wears a formal dress to a ball. She wants to get out of it and into her Street Fighter uniform as quickly as possible, though, because she has a hard time fighting in the dress.
** This is most pronounced with Fei Long, who goes shirtless ''everywhere'', despite nearly every business and public place (such as airports) having a "no shirt, no shoes, no service" policy.

* MindScrew: The episode "Getting to Guile" in which Guile keeps having nightmares about people turning into monsters, and his friends turning on him. This is justified, since [[MindRape Bison was actually screwing around with his mind]].

* ObliviousToLove: Averted. Guile is well aware that Cammy has a crush on him (due to the not so subtle hints that she has given him). He does not [[NotDistractedByTheSexy share these same feelings]], however, [[spoiler: due to the fact that he is still being in love with his ex-girlfriend Lucinda.[[note]]Whom he would eventually get back together with at the end of "Strange Bedfellows".[[/note]]]] Despite this, Cammy still hits on Guile until [[spoiler:she is brainwashed by Bison in "Cammy and the Bachelor".]]

* WhatTheHellHero: Fei Long chews out Ken in "So, You Want to be in Pictures" for allowing his fame to get in the way of his training, making him a sloppy and unreliable mess during filming. To elaborate, he and Ken were filming a scene where Ken's character was meant to die. However, thanks to getting more funds for the film from his dad, and being handed creative control of the film, Ken rewrote the scene to have him get up triumphantly, amongst other things.
