* AscendedMeme: M. Bison's taunt in this game has him float with his arms crossed and say "[[ButForMeItWasTuesday For me, it was a Tuesday]]."
** Bison's winquote against Jin and Hugo references the "YES! YES!" and "This is delicious!" memes at once. And against Chun-Li it references the "I killed my father too and you don't hear ME whining about it!" meme.
*** He also has a winquote against Guile which references [[Film/StreetFighter The Movie]].
*** And his winquote against Blanka has him denying creating something "as ridiculous as him," mocking the movie which showed Bison's genetic experiments transforming Carlos Blanka into a green skinned monster.
** Speaking of Blanka, there's his winqote against Guy:
-->'''Blanka''': You say funny things. What's profound sadness anyway?
* DevelopmentHell: Since [=TxSF=]'s announcement, there's been virtually no news on it's status.
* FanNickname:
** [[http://i.imgur.com/5Q9BD.jpg "Bob Saget"]] for the team-up of Bob from ''{{Tekken}}'' and Sagat from ''StreetFighter''.
** [[Series/ArrestedDevelopment Bob Loblaw]] for Bob and Law, which kind of extends to Tekken Tag Tournament 2 as well.
** "Blonde-Li" for Nina, thanks to Capcom's love for [[ShesGotLegs epic-sized thighs]] being transferred from Chun-Li over to her.
** Pandora, the game's powerup mechanic, has been jokingly referred to as [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 Xross Factor]] in some circles.
** "[[VideoGame/MegaMan Dr. Wily]]" for Heihachi as the game's rendition of him has a striking visual similarity to the classic villain. This gets driven home when he's [[MythologyGag Mega Man's opponent]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g3cNFeKOAMM in the Guest Fighter trailer.]]
** Lili and Poison is referred to by some as "Team Lady and the Tramp."
** Elena and Dudley are "That Ass and that Class"
** "Team GB (Great Britain)" for any combination of Cammy, Dudley and Steve.
** [[{{Acrofatic}} Beer Belly]] VideoGame/MegaMan, for [[FunWithAcronyms Bad Boxart Mega Man (BBM/BBAMM).]]
** Pac-[[VideoGame/MegaManLegends Bon]][[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 ne]] for PacMan's incarnation in this game. The robot is also fan-called Mokujinbot.
** Toro is known as Sony Cat for the few westerners that knew him prior this game.
** Creator/SethGreen for Ogre, whose design in this game looks like...[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a green Seth]].
** Maximum Raven for Raven's Doppelganger super, which looks similar to [[MarvelVsCapcom3 Wesker's]] Phantom Dance and Lost in Nightmares.
*** Dark Wesker / Black Wesker, for Raven himself, because he has the same [[Creator/DCDouglas voice actor]] as Wesker.
** [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Team Korea]] for Juri/Hwoarang.
** At the time when Mega Man had the flying glitch, the action itself was referred to as "[[TheSimpsons I have to go now. My planet needs me.]]"
*** Time Gem and [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure ZA WARUDO]] for Rolento's GameBreakingBug, now patched, which caused the system to completely freeze when his Stinger knife collided with another projectile.

** Cole is voiced by Eric Ladin, by virtue of ''VideoGame/{{Infamous}} 2''.
** The Japanese voice of Bob, Tsutomu Isobe, is a {{Toku}} actor who played [[Series/MahouSentaiMagiranger Wolzard Fire]]. Julia's Japanese voice actress, SeikoYoshida, previously voiced [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Kyousuke Kamijou]].

** Japanese: Creator/JunichiSuwabe as Lars and Vega, Kenichiro Matsuda as Jack and Raven, Creator/TomokazuSeki as Bryan and Yoshimitsu.
* TrollingCreator:
** If the constant inclusion of [[CreatorsPet Seth]] in ''SSFIV'' didn't make Yoshinori Ono one already, then the methods he used to include Toro and Kuro makes him as one.
** [[WordOfGod Namco Bandai producer Katsuhiro Harada]] once claimed the game wouldn't come out until 2018.
** Harada also made a popularity poll for both ''Tekken'' and ''Street Fighter'' characters, stating beforehand that it won't influence the developer team's choices, it is just for "research"... and yet some fans are voting like crazy in hope ''it will'' get their favorite character in; knowing the ''[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 MvC3]]'' polls' hype and consequent fiasco, Harada knew what was coming for this poll.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** The absolute first initial press release that these games were being made indicated that they might have been called "''Capcom vs. Namco''". It was later revealed that this was not the actual title, but rather what we have now.
** [[http://www.joystiq.com/2011/07/30/dan-and-anna-knocked-out-of-street-fighter-x-tekkens-final-rost/ Dan and Anna were considered,]] but ultimately did not make the cut. In fact, Dan was '''{{killed|OffForReal}}''' by Kazuya in the Comic Con 2010 trailer [[ShooOutTheClowns to drive this point home]].
** [[{{Halo}} Master Chief]] and [[GearsOfWar Marcus Fenix]] were considered for exclusive characters for the 360 version. However, bad timing meant it was rendered impossible, and the 360 will receive no one.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmPTKAr0S64&=04m05s According to this]], Classic VideoGame/MegaMan was considered for the game, but KeijiInafune himself axed the idea, saying that "it wasn't interesting enough" and challenging Ono to come up with something original. Ono suggested using Bad Box Art Mega Man instead, and making him obese as a joke at how 25 years had passed since that iteration of the character had appeared. Inafune loved the idea, [[DudeNotFunny but Mega Man fans, on the other hand...]]
** [[{{Uncharted}} Nathan Drake]] [[http://www.eventhubs.com/news/2012/mar/05/uncharteds-nathan-drake-was-considered-street-fighter-x-tekken/ was considered as a guest fighter for the PS3 version]], but the dev team settled on Cole due to his abilities.
** Originally, the PS3 exclusive characters were going to be region exclusive. Cole for the American version and Toro & Kuro for the Japanese version. It finally was changed so any region could enjoy all 3 bonus characters.
** Originally originally, Mega Man and Pac-Man were going to be in the Xbox 360 version of the game as well instead of being PS3 exclusive, however, Microsoft did not want those characters on their system and instead wanted to game to be ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin, no bonus characters.
** [[http://www.eventhubs.com/news/2012/apr/09/mega-mans-concept-art-street-fighter-x-tekken/ Bad Box Art Megaman's concept art]] shows he (and this version of Roll) had numerous different interpretations including Classic Megaman as [[WesternAnimation/MegaMan a muscle bound hero]] or even skinny teenage hoodie Megaman.
