  • Trivia

    • In this episode, during meditation, Blanka has a flashback to the time he was mutated into a beast by Bison and Dhalsim. In the movie, he was sitting down, with the TV reception feeding horrible images into his head. The mutation chamber in this episode is completely different; it looks a lot like a gas chamber.

    • Balrog takes over Dee Jay's role from the movie, he is now the computer technician loyal to Bison. This is his first (and only) appearance in the whole series.

    • Featured Street Fighter characters: Guile, Bison, Blanka, Chun-Li, Ken, Ryu, Cammy, Dhalsim and Balrog. Also cameos by Street Fighter Alpha characters (who reappear in Season 2) including Adon, Birdie, Sodom, Rose, Guy and Charlie (he also appears in Blanka's flashback, funny how he's somehow managed to be meditating and physically fighting at the same time...but to his credit, we only see him on a TV monitor).

  • Quotes

    • Bison: (Regarding Kurst's mutants) Look at them, Kurst! They have my eyes!

    • Guile: Bison's behind this somehow, now all we have to do is find him!
      Cammy: Well, we could take out a personal. "Wanted: One flaming jerk. Likes midnight strolls through minefields and moonlight invasions."
