Above is the old standby, Ryu. He's Ryu and you know him. I can feel you knowing him already. Below is someone I don't know, R. Mika. The R stands for, I don't know, probably Rachel I guess. Rachel Mika:Here's M. Bison. The M stands for, I don't know, probably Mike. He's Mike Bison, a play on Mike Tyson, a boxer who was in his prime when the original Street Fighter was made.
