* {{Fanon}}: Aside from the examples found in {{Jossed}} on the Trivia tab, a common [[EpilepticTrees theory]] claims that ''EX'' is meant to be a [[AlternateUniverse retelling]] of ''VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha''[=/=]''VideoGame/StreetFighterII''. The presence of certain characters on the roster, their appearances, and their motivations ''do'' lend more support to this idea than not, though. For example, Sagat still being in Shadaloo and wanting revenge on Ryu, Blanka trying to find his mom, Akuma seeking out a strong seeker of the killing intent, and Bison having access to his Shin form.

* {{CommonKnowledge}}: Much misinformation has been spread about the series' storyline due to it not being well known overseas. Some of the things that has been considered canon by fans are:
** Blair and Sharon are sisters.[[note]]Blair is the heiress of a wealthy European family, while Sharon was orphaned as a child and never knew her real parents.[[/note]]
** Hokuto and Hayate are lovers.[[note]]Hokuto and Hayate have nil to do with each other, although Hayate does end up being paired with a shrine maiden in his Japanese ''[=EX2=]'' ending.[[/note]]
** Skullomania and Shadowgeist are twin circus performers.[[note]]Skullomania is a Japanese businessman, while Shadowgeist is a vigilante from an unknown dystopian nation.[[/note]]
** Shadowgeist is Skullo's [[CainAndAbel evil supervillain of an older brother]] and the heroic Skullomania must put him down.[[note]]Despite the similarities between their movesets, this isn't the case. Plus, Shadowgeist is an anti-hero at worst.[[/note]]
** Kairi kills Akuma.[[note]]Akuma simply disappears from the series, with no explanation given for his absence.[[/note]]
** Garuda is Goutetsu's third student.[[note]]Originally, Garuda was an evil spirit created from the souls of fallen warriors killed by the Satsui no Hadou. However, he was later retconned into an evil spirit created from humanity's negative emotions.[[/note]]
** Hayate was killed off, which is why he doesn't appear in ''[=EX2=] Plus'' and ''[=EX3=]''.[[note]]No explanation was ever given as to why Hayate was removed from the series.[[/note]]

** Arguably, ''EX'' is [[CultClassic the darkhorse of the entire series]], a status that extends to most of its characters.
** Skullomania. To this day, he ''still'' shows up on a disproportionate amount of character wishlists.
*** Among Skullo fans, there's also [[DistaffCounterpart Skullo Lady]] from ''[=EX3=]''. Mentioned once, and never made a playable appearance.

** For clarification, strong support includes Sagat still being in Shadaloo and wanting revenge on Ryu, Blanka trying to find his mom, Akuma seeking out a strong seeker of the killing intent, and Bison having access to his Shin form. Characters like Sakura and Evil Ryu being present could, however, still refer to SFIV just as much as Alpha. But it leans more to the former, and it's understandable why people see it.

** The Cycloids become a bit more amusing when you compare them to Seth (making his debut in ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighter IV]]''), who does the exact same [[DittoFighter moveset mimicking]] as them and (due to his [[BarbieDollAnatomy appearance]]) somewhat resembles Cycloid-γ. Heck, he's even been [[FanNickname dubbed]] "Cycloid Seth" on several occasions.
* OlderThanTheyThink: The ''EX'' series could honestly be referred to as "''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'', only a decade early" (which makes the whole BrokenBase debate above even more ironic). Many of the gameplay features used in ''IV'' (TwoAndAHalfD, [[DesperationAttack Ultra Combos]], [[UnblockableAttack Focus]] [[InvulnerableAttack Attacks]]) originated here (TwoAndAHalfD, [[LimitBreak Meteor Combos]], [[UnblockableAttack Guard Break]]). Several characters in ''IV'' even had a few of their moves from ''EX'' transplanted to their movesets in ''IV''.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: Ace's theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HwcsVmT7DUQ "Harem Beat,"]] sounds like something you'd hear in a ''VideoGame/MegaMan'' game. More specifically, it sounds like a rock-heavy version of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7v0B-mP81k Gravity Man's theme]] from ''5''. Inversely, it also resembles Shang Fenghuang's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4HJJ0Y4cUmI theme]] from ''VideoGame/FightingLayer'' (an arcade-only game also developed by Arika in 1998, three years before ''[=EX3=]''), albeit sped up.
