YMMV / Street Fighter: The Movie

Go To


  • Accidental Innuendo: When the numeral "5" looks like the letter "S" during match play, "5 HIT COMBO" has a different interpretation.

  • Cult Classic: The console version isn't talked about much, but is fondly remembered by those who've played it and is considered superior to the arcade version.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: While he may be seen as a joke now by a majority, including Capcom themselves, Captain Sawada is fondly remembered by those who've played the console version, thanks to his revamped moveset.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: In M. Bison's Arcade ending, his rule is described as spreading across the Globe "like a cancer." Considering that it was well known that Raúl Juliá had cancer at the time...
  • Narm Charm: If you and your opponent get into a throwing war, counter your opponent's throws enough to hear "SLAMMASTER!" It's undoubtedly goofy but still a fun soundbyte.
  • No Problem with Licensed Games: While the arcade version is pretty terrible, fans were surprised to find that the console version was actually a pretty decent game, since it plays more like an actual Street Fighter game. It was also the first game in the series to feature EX Attacks, which would make it into the proper series and become a pretty important part of the gameplay in games they're included in.
  • Older Than They Think:
    • The arcade version was the first game to give Vega a multiple flip kick Super Combo (Hell's Scarlet), which became a standard part of his movelist (Scarlet Terror) in other games, starting with Street Fighter Alpha 3.
    • Honda's Super Shiko special move in the arcade version became the Shikofumi command move in Street Fighter IV.
    • The home version was the first Street Fighter game to feature EX Attacks, predating Street Fighter III 2nd Impact by a couple years.
    • The arcade version was the first Street Fighter game to have more than one Super Combo per character.
    • This is the first game where Akuma's name appears in-game. It is also the first game where he's playable from the start instead of being a secret character.
    • It is the only Street Fighter game to have a "proper" Story Mode until Street Fighter V.
