* TheDanza: Makoto is voiced by '''Makoto''' Tsumura, also the voice of ''Anime/AstroBoy.''
* FanNickname:
** For Dudley, there's Studley, Dudeley, Doodley, and (to a much lesser extent) Duddles.
** Gilley for Gill.
** Due to Urien's UnfortunateName, there're Urine, Piss, and many others...
* HeyItsThatVoice:
** You might recognize Lawrence Bayne, the voice of Gill in ''3rd Strike'', as the voice of Cable, CaptainAmerica, and other bit parts in the '90s ''WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}}'' cartoon (he reprised the former role in ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom2'', where Cable was one of the [[FanNickname Four]] [[GameBreaker Gods]], [[HilariousInHindsight humorously enough]]).
** In ''3rd Strike'', Len Carlson voiced both Q and Hugo, otherwise known as [[TheRaccoons Bert Raccoon]] or [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfZelda Ganon]].
*** Hugo is also voiced by Creator/WataruTakagi in ''New Generation'' and ''2nd Impact'', who had the hugest work in [[VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha the Alpha series]], [[TalkingToHimself voicing 5 characters]].
*** Chun-Li and Poison are both voiced by none other than AtsukoTanaka, a.k.a. [[GhostInTheShell Major Motoko Kusanagi]].
* TheOtherDarrin: All the returning characters, sans Ibuki and Akuma, got new voice actors in ''3rd Strike''.
** Michael X. Sommers voiced Alex in the first two games, Patrick Gallagan in ''3rd Strike'' (complete with a noticeable Brooklyn accent).
** Bruce Robertson voiced Dudley in ''New Generation'' and ''2nd Impact''. Francis Diakowsky ([[MyRealDaddy the voice most commonly associated with Dudley]]) voiced him in ''3rd Strike''. Averted in the case of Naomi Kusumi, as he is Dudley's first Japanese voice actor.
** Yun was voiced by Koji Tobe in ''New Generation'' and ''2nd Impact''. Creator/KentaroIto takes over for ''3rd Strike'' and all subsequent appearances.
** As for Yang, Creator/WataruTakagi voiced him in the first two games, and Masakazu Suzuki assumed the role in ''3rd Strike''.
** Michael X. Sommers voices Necro in the first two titles, Lawrence Bayne voices him in ''3rd Strike''.
** Creator/IsshinChiba (the voice of [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Dio Brando]]) voiced Sean in ''New Generation'' and ''2nd Impact''. Creator/MitsuoIwata ([[Manga/{{Akira}} "That's MISTER Kaneda]] (or [[TheKingOfFighters Kusanagi]], if you prefer)[[Manga/{{Akira}} for you!"]]) takes over in ''3rd Strike''.
** Hotaru Fujino voiced Elena in ''New Generation'' and ''2nd Impact''. Mie Midori was her seiyuu for ''3rd Strike''.
** Averted with Ibuki. Creator/YuriAmano was the only seiyuu besides Akuma [TomomichiNishimura] to keep voicing her character after ''2nd Impact''.
** KanTokumaru voices Oro in ''New Generation'' and ''2nd Impact'', TakashiMatsuyama voices him in ''3rd Strike''.
** Creator/YujiUeda is the voice of Urien in ''2nd Impact'', Lawrence Bayne in ''3rd Strike''.
* NamesTheSame: In terms of Makoto's special moves, one of them (Hayate) is named after a swordsman from the VideoGame/StreetFighterEX series.
** She also shares her name with another incredibly strong female fighting game character, [[{{Blazblue}} Makoto Nanaya.]]
* PromotedFanboy: In ''Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Online Edition'', the last of the ten parrying trials is "EVO Moment #37", a.k.a. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KS7hkwbKmBM "The Daigo Incident."]]
* TalkingToHimself:
** Michael Sommers, the voice actor of Alex, also provides the voice of Necro in ''New Generation'' and ''2nd Impact''.
** Len Carlson is Q and Hugo, and Lawrence Bayne is Gill, Urien, Necro, and Twelve.
** Bruce Robertson, the voice actor of Dudley, also provided the voice Gill and the annoucer in ''New Generation'' and ''2nd Impact''.
** Creator/WataruTakagi and Koji Tobe (the seiyuu of Ryu and Ken in the first two titles of the ''III'' series) also voiced Yun and Yang in those games.
** Necro has the same voice actor as Alex in ''New Generation'' and ''2nd Impact''. In ''3rd Strike'', Lawrence Bayne voices Necro, Gill, Urien, and Twelve.
* UrbanLegendOfZelda: A rumor was circulating that Makoto was originally going to be Ryu's sister, which may explain their resemblance.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen
** Believe it or not, Dan was considered for ''Street Fighter III''.
** Sean was initially supposed to the only [[{{Shotoclone}} Ryu/Ken-type]] in ''StreetFighter III''. If that would have remained, he may have still been wet behind the ears, but he probably wouldn't have been nerfed in ''3rd Strike''. Heck, he probably wouldn't be treated like a joke.
** Gill's original design was to have him manipulate light and darkness. However, Capcom, for many reasons, decided to use the fire/ice alignment to showcase their spiffy new hardware. His secondary color is a reference to the original direction (but he still retains fire and ice control).
** The dev team planned to include Hugo in ''New Generation'', but he had to be DummiedOut due to time constraints.
** Shin Akuma might have possibly been planned to appear in ''Third Strike'', as he has nearly complete DummiedOut code in the game and can be completely playable with a hack.
* ShoutOut
** Pitting Alex against Hugo results in them [[http://youtu.be/0nZDHNlToLI?t=5s standing chest to chest, staring each other down]] a la [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45-IEcYi2uk Hulk Hogan/Andre The Giant at Wrestlemania III]].
