* 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 (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).

That being said, ''Street Fighter'' lasted two seasons for a total of 26 episodes. It had more ''Street Fighter'' characters seen throughout its run than any other animated adaptation of ''Street Fighter'', considering the inclusion of the ''VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha'' characters during the second season and an entire episode devoted to ''VideoGame/FinalFight''.

* BroadStrokes: The series implies that the events of [[Film/StreetFighter the movie]] occurred, but not exactly as depicted there. "Keeping the Peace" shows a flashback of Guile being court-marshaled for invading Shadaloo City against his superior's orders, which happens in the movie. However, the sole fact that Dee Jay and Balrog are now working on opposite sides, among other inconsistencies, makes it impossible for the movie to fit in the show's continuity.
