The final boss in Street Fighter was originally Balrog, would you have prefered him or M.Bison? ?

Balrog was supposed to be the final boss, his name was also originally 'M.Bison' (aka Mike Tyson) which is also why he happens to look like Mike Tyson. But due to legal reasons they could not use the name M.Tyson. So instead they chose the thailand army general to be M.Bison and changed the boxer to Balrog.

    Indeed M.Bison was changed to Balrog when they made the western version of Street Fighter 2, but the final boss as far as I'm aware was always Vega/M.Bison, the dictator/general character. They chose to switch M.Bison's name from Vega because they believed that "Vega" didn't sound like a strong name for a final boss in the west, and instead gave that name to the Spanish assassin, Balrog.

    Typically street fighter fans will just refer to them as "Boxer", "Claw, and "Dictator" to avoid confusion.
