Trivia / Street Fighter II V

Go To

  • Dueling Dubs: Manga Entertainment/Animaze provided the English dub for the North America/Oceania market, while ADV Films provided the dub for the British/Irish market.
  • Dueling Works: Quite literally with Virtua Fighter, seeing as both series first aired in 1995 and take younger versions of established fighting game characters and have them travel across the globe.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Secondhand DVD copies are out-of-print and run for high prices, and it's no longer available to buy digitally or stream legally on any English website. The ADV version is even harder to find these days, so much that the version was thought to be lost for the longest time. This is simply due to the fact that they don't exist anymore (well, not in their original form, anyways), and they only released their version on VHS and exclusively in the UK.
  • Name's the Same:
  • Relationship Voice Actor:
  • Role Reprise:
    • Several of the English voice actors who previously worked on Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie return for the Animaze dub of this series. This includes:
      • Skip Stellrecht as Ryu.
      • Kirk Thornton as Guile.
      • Lia Sargent as Chun-Li.
      • Peter Spellos as Sagat.
      • Richard Cansino as Vega.
      • Joe Romersa as Balrog.
      • Debra Rogers as Cammy.
      • Michael Sorich as Zangief.
      • Tom Wyner as Bison.

    • The same goes, through partially, with the original Japanese version, as both Ken, Vega and Cammy's voice actors (Kenji Haga, Kaneto Shiozawa, and Yoko Sasaki respectively) reprise their roles.
    • And this goes Up to Eleven in the Latin American Spanish dub, which was done in Colombia, as it used the entire voice cast from the Colombian dub of Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie and also from the American animated show. In the latter case this is justified, as the anime adaptation was normally broadcasted at the end of the American show and viceversa, since both shows were sold in that region as a part of the same broadcasting package.
  • What Could Have Been: The series was planned to have a full 51 episode run, but because of underwhelming ratings (due to the show airing against Crayon Shin-chan on the same time slot), it was Cut Short to 29 episodes. As a result, the series underwent drastic rewrites at the last minute, with the most notable changes being Balrog's portrayal as an Interpol double agent without any fighting skills (despite the opening and earlier promotional art showing him in full boxing gear), in order to wrap up the show's storyline as quickly as possible. This also meant that the remaining four fighters from the games (E. Honda, Blanka, T. Hawk and Dee Jay) never got to show up.
