* TooCoolToLive: [[TheObiWan Charlie]], according to WordOfGod, does everything Guile does but better, demonstrated in-game by his being able to throw Sonic Booms one-handed (or even out of his feet). And we can't have one of ''Street Fighter''[='s=] poster boys being overshadowed, can we? Bye bye, Charlie. He eventually [[BackFromTheDead came back]] in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV'', though.

* BaseBreaker: [[VideoGame/CapcomFightingEvolution Ingrid]]. Those who like her think she's cute and a decent fighter atop of that. Those who don't disliked her. The fact that she was a crossover character from a universally-hated game, and her DeusExMachina storyline didn't help matters at all. This is even more so when it was confirmed that she was the reason the ''VideoGame/StreetFighterXTekken'' conflict happened in the first place. Given both the [[CriticalDissonance fanbase's reaction]] to that game and the box's nature of giving prizes that are either [[DudeWheresMyReward extremely underwhelming]] or outright screws the winners over, she's really not helping her case any.

* AmericansHateTingle: Ingrid is very popular in Japan, but has a significant hatedom in the Western fandom.



** Ingrid. Despite appearing in few games, [[http://fb.namcobandaigames.com/fbtekken/statistics_user.php?sid=78423 she is one of the most voted characters]] by fans for ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterXTekken Tekken X Street Fighter]]''.

* FanonDiscontinuity: Some fans would rather pretend that Ingrid's appearance in ''Alpha 3 MAX'' didn't happen.



** Guy in the first ''Street Fighter Alpha'' due to his fast and damaging chain combos. He actually cracks a pretty bad joke in ''[=SFA3=]'' about how he has his opponent "on a chain" in reference to this.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: ''Alpha 2'' developed a large [[TournamentPlay competitive following]] in the States, especially on the West Coast. This is in contrast to its native Japan where it wasn't received as well, especially compared to its sequel, ''Alpha 3''. It came to the point where it was generally accepted that the US would hands down beat Japan if they ever competed in the game, a reverse of what usually happens.

** [[SNKBoss Final Bison]]'s Final Psycho Crusher from ''Alpha 3''. It does ridiculous amounts of damage regardless of if you block it or not. The only way to avoid it is to use a high-priority move (i.e. {{Shoryuken}}), WallJump, or, if you're Akuma/Evil Ryu, Ashura Senku it out of there. The first two require critical timing and ''a lot'' of luck. On top of that, Bison's boss-exclusive Shadaloo-ism allows him to build meter incredibly fast, meaning he can abuse said Super multiple times per round [[AIRoulette if he's feeling nasty]]. Making matters worse is the fact that if you lose to Bison, that's it. You don't get a chance to continue and try again; it just goes straight to the [[DownerEnding bad ending]].

** Early in 2013, some ROM makers managed to make a ''Street Fighter IV'' hack that let you play as Rolento (using his model from ''Street Fighter X Tekken''). In July 2013, Rolento was announced as one of the new characters to be included in ''Ultra Street Fighter IV''.

* BaseBreaker: [[VideoGame/CapcomFightingEvolution Ingrid]]. Those who like her think she's cute and a decent fighter atop of that. Those who don't soon started screaming GodModeSue.

* CommonMarySueTraits: Ingrid has a lot, from being a precocious youngster to having the opposing force of Bison's Psycho Power.
** GodModeSue: Ingrid possesses a version of Bison's Psycho Power (which she claims he stole from her) which functions like Rose's Soul Power but is much stronger. Rose, as powerful as her psychic abilities are, can't read Ingrid's fortune. Additionally, her powers so strong that she snaps Evil Ryu out of his trance by merely ''[[WarriorTherapist besting him in combat]]''.

any.



* FanonDiscontinuity: Read Ingrid's entry on CommonMarySueTraits above. Some fans would rather pretend none of that actually happened, which is pretty easy when you consider that Ingrid doesn't make any unique or significant contributions to the storyline overall, other than being shoehorned into the storyline.

** The crouch cancel bug in ''[=SFA3=]'' (basically, being able to cancel longer move recoveries by crouching during a Custom Combo, which made it so that since the character using it never entered a neutral state, their opponent never got an opportunity to flip out of their combo) which made the already powerful "V-Ism" borderline broken by allowing players to kill their opponents in one long combo.
