M. Bison is the main antagonist of the Street Fighter series, first appearing as a non-playable boss in Street Fighter II before becoming playable in its update, Street Fighter II: Champion Edition. He is a self-imposed dictator and megalomaniac seeking world domination. He is incredibly strong due to his usage of Psycho Power.

Personality Appearance

His general attire consists of a red military uniform with large silver shoulder plates, wrist bands, and shin guards; on his peaked/service cap is the skull insignia of his crime syndicate known as Shadaloo. His irises were originally red but, turned white after Hyper Fighting.

Name change

Originally, the character was to be named Vega but, the character originally named M. Bison resembled Mike Tyson too much and Capcom worried they would be sued. Instead, they rotated the name of the three new boss characters so the Boxer is named Balrog in the west, the Assassin is named Vega in the West and the Dictactor is named M. Bison.
