* DesignatedHero: Ryu is a complete {{Jerkass}} in this series and talks to Chun-Li like crap (at one point he insults her ''while she's coming on to him''). He talks rudely of Ken just because Ken retired from fighting and sought a different career and is just generally unpleasent. He even gets called out on his behavior by Chun-Li.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Capcom felt this way at least, since besides changing the characterization of many characters, they also added some controversial changes as [[spoiler:killing Ken in a very brutal way]].
