YMMV / Street Fighter II V

Go To



  • Alternative Character Interpretation: This series has alternate versions of the main casts' personalities:
    • Ryu is much more of a typical Shōnen hero, in stark contrast to his stoic persona in the games.
    • Chun-Li is more innocent, cheerful, and outgoing, as she appears before her beloved father is murdered.
    • Fei Long not only has Anime Hair but is far more Hot-Blooded and emotional than in the games, bordering sometimes on Tsundere.
    • Bison and Shadaloo want to conquer the world so they can force humanity to stop abusing the environment and save the planet, almost making them well-intentioned extremists. In the games, Bison is just rapacious and power-hungry, and Shadaloo is merely his tool in world domination.
  • Awesome Music:
  • Cult Classic: This series isn't talked about much compared to other Street Fighter animations, but has a devoted fanbase, especially in Brazil.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Was very popular in Brazil during the '90s to the point that it was more successful than Dragon Ball, which was aired on the same channel and anime block. Plus, Brazil was one of the first countries to air this anime outside of Japan. To this day, there are still fans who get this adaptation's incarnations of the characters confused for the main games' backstory and personality traits.

  • Heartwarming in Hindsight: This series has Sagat on surprisingly friendly terms with Ryu considering that, at the time the series was released, the game's canon had Sagat hating Ryu and wanting revenge on him for scarring him. Cue Street Fighter IV and how Sagat's plot progresses in both it and its Super revision, and now Sagat and Ryu are on far better terms than they used to be, almost like this series.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: This series has its own version of Bison's "YES! YES!" Unfortunately, it's not nearly as hamtastic as its American counterpart.
  • Ho Yay: There's a lot of beefcake in certain scenes (like the gym at Guile's Air Force base), and Ryu and Ken are very comfortable in each others' company. Especially in a certain pool scene. It has to be seen to be believed.note 
  • Memetic Mutation: "I'M NOT A GIRL, I'M A TOUR GUIDE!"
  • Narm:
    • While the fight between Vega and Ken is very graphic and serious most of the time, the High-Pressure Blood his claws inflict is very over-the-top and unintentionally funny at times.
    • Upon learning that Ken is the son of one of the world's most wealthiest men and Chun-Li is Dorai's daughter, Bison goes into a huge Psycho Powered giggle fit that lasts so long you're more likely to start laughing along with him. And Zoltar's completely calm response afterward:
    "You destroyed your chair, I'll get you another one."
  • Narm Charm: This scene of Vega admiring himself in a mirror, then licking his claw to draw blood from it, is both incongruously funny and terrifying thanks to his creepy theme music in the background.


How well does it match the trope?
