  • Bad Export for You: The Hispanic CPS arcade boards used for Spanish-speaking Latin America for the first Alpha game were notorious for omitting many tunes used in other boards, and in the case of Adon's stage, only a few notes could be heard, including a very annoying guitar riff that plays during all the stage until you finish it. The only way to play the game with the original tunes were using the U.S one or boards from other regions instead.note

  • 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.
  • The Other Darrin:
    • Ryu was voiced by Katashi Ishizuka in the first two Alpha games. Toshiyuki Morikawa, who also voiced Charlie in all three games, took over the role in Alpha 3, but only for a few clips; the rest of his audio was recycled from Ishizuka.
    • 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.

    • Yuko Miyamura voiced Chun-Li, in all three games, and Rose until Alpha 3.
    • Tetsuya Iwanaga voiced Ken and Guy in all three games.

    • 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.
