During the early development of Street Fighter II, many characters had placeholder names until they were given proper ones:
•Zangief was referred to as “Vodka Gorbavsky".
•Chun-Li was named "Chinese Girl"
•Blanka was called "beast"
•M.Bison (Dictador) was named Washizaki (鷲崎 "Eagle Cape"), likely a reference to the villian of the same name from the manga series Riki-Oh.
