Disambiguation of characters

Between the Japanese and American releases of the various Street Fighter games, three characters have had their names swapped from their original Japanese names. This may have been to avoid legal troubles regarding a character that resembles boxing athlete Mike Tyson in both name and image. For this reason, fans of the series have adopted an alternative set of descriptive names to help disambiguate which character someone is referring to, regardless of country or context.

Japanese name American name Alias
Vega M. Bison Dictator
M. Bison Balrog Boxer
Balrog Vega Claw

Incidentally, all three characters are Shadaloo bosses, making Sagat the only member of the four to remain unchanged.
