Street Fighter II: Localization, names & lawsuits.

When Street Fighter II was localized in the United States, Capcom was afraid of a lawsuit from Mike Tyson over a character (Balrog) with his likeness as well as a similar sounding name (Balrog’s Japanese name being “Mike Bison”).

– The boxer is known as Mike Bison in Japan and Balrog in the U.S.
– The Spanish assassin/matador is known as Balrog in Japan and Vega in the U.S.
