  • What Could Have Been:
    • New Generation was originally meant to be a full-on retool of the franchise, with a roster strictly comprised entirely of new characters. It was only later in development that it was decided to add Ryu and Ken into the roster. Akuma and Chun-Li would be added to the roster in 2nd Impact and 3rd Strike, respectively.
    • 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.note 
    • The development team planned to include Hugo in New Generation, but he had to be Dummied Out due to time constraints.
    • Shin Akuma might have possibly been planned to appear in 3rd Strike, as he has nearly complete Dummied Out code in the game and can be completely playable with a hack.
    • Remy's place in the roster could have been taken up by a character that used poisonous attacks, predating F.A.N.G.
