  • Talking to Himself:

  • Urban Legend of Zelda: A rumor circulated that Makoto was originally going to be Ryu's sister, which may explain their resemblance.
  • 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. ‘’2nd Impact’’ would later add Akuma and Chun Li would join in ‘’Third Strike’’.
    • 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.
