These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
One-Scene Wonder: The film's producers tried to fit in all sixteen fighters from Super Street Fighter II into the film somehow, so a few of them had to get the short end of the stick. The fight between Blanka and Zangief bears no significance to the plot, and several fan favorites became bit players. Since Capcom announced Super Street Fighter II Turbo shortly after production of the film began, the animators included Akuma as a cameo to avoid shoehorning his presence into the film.
