Trivia / Strider

  • Approval of God: The dudes from Capcom who're playing the Strider reboot here suggests that people check out the Ryu Hayabusa Vs. Strider Hiryu episode of Death Battle (though they do spoil that Hiryu wins).
  • Canon Discontinuity: The Capcom-developed arcade version of Strider 2 is a direct follow-up to the arcade game, and completely ignores the U.S. Gold-produced sequel, Strider II/Strider Returns, that was released for home computers during the early 90's.
  • No Export for You: The manga was never officially published in English.
    • Strangely inverted with the NES game. Its Famicom counterpart was canceled despite being heavily promoted in ads and previewed in several magazines and videos.
  • Short Run In America!: The NES version (as there was no Famicom release).
  • Talking to Himself: Kosuke Toriumi voices both Hiryu and Hien in Strider 2.
  • Recycled Script: The final two stages in Strider 2 consist of a fight atop the warship Balrog and inside the Third Moon space station, just like in the first arcade game.
  • What Could Have Been: Strider Hiryu's return for the canceled Capcom Fighting All-Stars. In 3D.
    • Notably, his skillset would have been toned down considerably from Marvel vs. Capcom, with his Cypher only being utilized in specials and supers.
  • Working Title: For the original arcade game, the English version was almost changed to "The Falcon" before release.
