** Due to Arika and Capcom jointly owning the rights to the ''EX''-exclusive faces but Capcom having no desire to do anything with them, the question has been occasionally raised as to if Arika would be better off forgoing a fourth ''EX'' game in favor of a fighter that includes ''only'' the ''EX'' newcomers (and the cast of ''VideoGame/FightingLayer''). With the announcement of ''Fighting EX Layer'' and [[ContestedSequel the hotly debated quality]] of ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV'', this argument has picked up traction once more.

* {{Moe}}: Hokuto became this in ''Fighting EX Layer'', largely thanks to her character art depicting her as more youthful than her appearances in ''EX''.

*** Reached its peak at EVO 2017 when Skullomania was finally revealed for Arika's currently unnamed fighting project. It garnered one of the loudest positive reactions from the audience present at the event, close behind the announcement of ''VideoGame/BlazBlueCrossTagBattle'' and the reveal of [[VideoGame/FatalFury Geese Howard]] as ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}} 7''[='s=] second GuestFighter. Considering how ''Tekken'' is the most successful and popular 3D fighter on the market and how large [[Franchise/BlazBlue the individual]] [[VideoGame/Persona4 fan]][[VideoGame/Persona4Arena bases]] [[VideoGame/Persona4ArenaUltimax of]] [[VideoGame/UnderNightInBirth the IPs]] [[WebAnimation/{{RWBY}} featured in]] ''Cross Tag Battle'' are, it's pretty damn impressive that Skullo can generate that much hype after all these years.

** Whether or not [[OriginalGeneration the characters]] [[CanonForeigner introduced here]] should become {{Canon Immigrant}}s or not. The issue cooled down over time as the series slowly became VindicatedByHistory (see below), eventually leading to the CFN website for ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV'' revealing that [[spoiler:Zangief entrusted one of the chess pieces necessary for stopping Bison's master plan to Darun Mister for safekeeping]], suggesting that, though they may never be playable in a mainline title, the ''EX'' characters are indeed canon to the greater ''Street Fighter'' universe.

** Skullomania becomes this in 2009, where we got [[Series/KamenRiderDouble Kamen Rider Skull]], complete with a scarf and the letter S on his forehead. Personality-wise, though, he's pretty much Skullo's opposite.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: Ace's theme, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HwcsVmT7DUQ "Harem Beat,"]] sounds like something you'd hear in a ''VideoGame/{{Mega Man|Classic}}'' game. More specifically, it sounds like a rock-heavy version of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7v0B-mP81k Gravity Man's theme]] from ''[[VideoGame/MegaMan5 5]]''. Inversely, it also resembles Shang Fenghuang's [[https://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.

* {{Fanon}}: Aside from the examples found above, 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 KillingIntent, and Bison having access to his Shin form (as well as a majority of the ''Alpha'' voice cast being used for most of the roster).
