Trivia / Street Fighter Alpha

  • Cut Song: This badass gem from the Japanese version of Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie 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.
  • Fan Nickname:
    • GARlie for Charlie, due to him being as manly as Guile.
    • Dan "The Man" Hibiki.
    • Sakky, for Sakura.
  • The Other Darrin:
    • Ryu was voiced by Katashi Ishizuka in the first two Alpha games. Toshiyuki Morikawa, who also voiced Charlie in the three games, took over the role in Alpha 3.
    • Rose was voiced by Yuko Miyamura, who also voiced Chun-Li in all three games, in the first two Alpha games. For Alpha 3, the role was taken over by Michiko Neya.
    • Cammy was voiced by Susan Hart in Alpha 2 Gold, by virtue of X-Men vs. Street Fighter, and by Akiko Komoto in Alpha 3.
  • Talking to Himself:
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Joe was going to be one of the new fighters in Alpha 3, but was replaced by Cody.
    • Karin was originally going to be an Early-Bird Cameo in Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter.
    • 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 Guilty Gear. Budget constraints forced him to use the standard MIDI Q-Sound system instead.
