Attachment In Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact there is an unused female voice that doesn't match either Elena or Ibuki. It's possible these voice lines belonged to an earlier version of Makoto, as she was originally meant to debut in this game but was moved to 3rd Strike due to time constrains.

In a 2003 interview with the game's producer Noritaka Funamizu published in the 15th Anniversary Street Fighter limited edition DVD set, Funamizu stated that at the time he had been pushing Yoshiki Okamoto to include Chun-Li in the game, and Okamoto agreed to it, if 3rd Strike were to be developed. At the time, the team thought of making a big roster for 3rd Strike, and Okamoto was more insistent. He also stated that if Chun-Li wasn't included in the game, she wouldn't have gained the same impact as before. Okamoto thought of Chun-Li as the mascot of Capcom.

Funamizu also stated that Chun-Li's absence was the team's number one complaint they received from players for not including her in the previous Street Fighter III games. However, he stated that the team did wanted to include her in the games.

The hand sings used by Oro during his animations for blocking/parrying an attack, using his normal fireball, or using his Yagyou Dama super art, are know as mudra, which are symbolic or ritual gestures from the Hindu and Buddhist faiths; later on incorporated into various eastern styles of martial arts. Additionally, Oro draws Ki energy from a specific part of his body depending on where his hand is placed, for example, if Oro placed his hand on his head he's drawing energy from the brow chakra, and when placed on the chest he's drawing energy from the heart chakra.

Attachment In the game's data there is a remix of the "Jingle Bells" Christmas song that goes unused in normal gameplay. This music was most likely used in a location test build of the game, which had Christmas and New Years messages for the player. As these messages were removed from the final version, the Jingle Bells theme also goes unused, although you can still play it in the sound test.

A prototype version of Hugo can be found in the game data for Street Fighter III: New Generation, with only his basic moves finished and placeholder graphics. Performing certain attacks on him may cause him to become invisible or freeze the game.
