Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Grew up... with no heart. Little is known of M. Bison’s past before he rose to power, including with the “M” really stands for. However, at one point he did purge all goodness from his body to achieve more complete, but dark, powers.

Living... in Thailand. Bison operates out of a secret base there, controlling his vast criminal organization Shadaloo.

Profession... military dictator. As supreme commander of Shadaloo, Bison directs everything from its expansive drug trafficking network, to its numerous science projects like cloning and brainwashing, to the various World Warrior martial arts tournaments it hosts.

Interests… conquering the world. All Bison wants in life is to become the strongest fighter in the world and rule it with an iron fist. Everything he does is in service of accomplishing that goal.

Relationship Status... single. As a megalomaniac who cares only for himself, Bison doesn’t have time for romance. However, he does have a few twisted relationships with his associates like Juri; his mindlessly obedient “doll” assassins like Cammy; and his “daughter” Rose, who wields power that counters his own.

Challenge... mastering the Psycho Power. Bison’s most intimidating weapon is the deadly Psycho Power. It manifests as purple energy beams that he uses to obliterate opponents. However, because of its chaotic strength, Bison’s body gradually deteriorates while holding it inside him. So while he searches for a way to overcome this weakness, Bison is forced to periodically and inconveniently transfer his soul between human hosts.  

Personality... pure evil. Bison is a callous, diabolical mastermind. And the only thing that surpasses his power is his ego. As he said to World Warrior Chun-Li while recalling the time he murdered her father, “For you, the day Bison graced your village was the most important day of your life. But for me, it was Tuesday.”
