Trivia

One of Chun-Li's win quotes makes reference to her supposedly 'throwing her bracelets'. Longtime fans know that this was a joke in reference to rumours that in the previous Street Fighter 2, Chun-Li could throw her bracelets as a projectile.

Subsequently, those rumours gave rise to Chun-Li's current Kikkoken fireball projectile added later in the series in Street Fighter 2 Turbo.
