Street Fighter V


Bison’s character

Alternate costumes

Story mode costume:

Still goes unexplained by the game, unlike the story costumes of all the other characters. I like to think this is Bison after the destruction of his base in the ‘A Shadow Falls’ storyline.

Dan’s description in the SFV Shop: “That look makes it look like he just came out of a fight where he lost his sleeves. Maybe they were torn out by his Psycho Power… Mine, by the way, I tore out because they look cool!

Battle costume:

Bison’s battle costume was first available as a pre-order bonus. Later it became a release available to anyone. The first time Bison is seen with facial hair.

Dan’s description in the SFV Shop: “This is said to be one of Shadaloo’s ceremonial uniforms, which I think makes sense. I mean, those shoulder pads kinda shout ‘evil organization focused on world domination’.

30th Anniversary costume:

They went all out with this one and I love it. Looks like Bison has a taste for the ‘Napoleonic look. He even has a large ermine-lined cape…

Dan’s description in the SFV Shop: “Man, check out that cape! That just screams “I’m the leader of an evil organization.”. And since he IS the leader of an evil organization, it’s a good choice!”

Street Fighter V put a lot of effort into detailing Shadaloo. Before the game it was more of a notorious name than an empire with a face.
