* ArtisticLicenseGeography: According to Capcom, Charlie's stage is in Detroit. The map however locates the stage at the tip of Lake Michigan rather than Lake Huron, so it's most definately Chicago.
* CutSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkH9Ybg3SCc This badass gem]] from the Japanese version of ''Anime/StreetFighterIITheAnimatedMovie'' plays during the ''Alpha 1'' Dramatic Battle in the Japanese arcade version. This song is not featured in the overseas releases or in the console versions, where it was replaced with M. Bison's theme.

** Karin [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=anJOQs5_-vo was originally going to be]] an EarlyBirdCameo in ''VideoGame/MarvelSuperHeroesVsStreetFighter''.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sT9T2HRa1Z0 According to Seth Killian (at the start of the video),]] Rolento was initially going to be called Lawrence. Given that his name reads like a badly Romanized version of the name "Laurent" this makes good sense.
** Juni and Juli may have originally been designed to be played at the same time, similar to when you fight them in Arcade Mode when playing Cammy.
** For ''Alpha 3'', Takayuki Iwai, the main musical composer for the game, originally wanted to use a custom CD-based soundboard in order to make a hard rock soundtrack similar to ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear''. Budget constraints forced him to use the standard MIDI Q-Sound system instead.
