M.Bison's nationality?

KindredSpiritzKindredSpiritz Joined: Posts: 191
Where the heck is M.Bison from? One would assume he was from Thailand but he don't look very Thai does he? I heard he was in Vietnam but then again he doesn't look Vietnamese. Is he Middle Eastern? I heard someone once say he was Spanish but isn't that Vega (the Spanish matador ninjitsu fella?).

Does anybody know? Thanx for your time.

    I've always wondered too. Is he Asian or white? It's hard to tell.

    If Bison does indeed switch bodies at will then chances are he doesn't have a nationality anymore.

    Nationality: Chances are that the Thai government renounced his citizenship or Bison renounced it himself in favor of Shadaloo or something like that.

    Race: Bison is southeast asian(Thai/Vietnamese/Cambodian/Laotian). He has the same complexion as Sagat. Shadaloo capitol is in Thailand. Also IMO Bison's relationship with Sagat was a small bit of trust through racial bond. Or something like that.

    I thought I read he was Japanese? I hope this doesn't break out into a "IS DUDLEY BLACK?" kind of debate...

    His nationality has always been stated as 'Unknown' and in SFA3 he kinda' hints that he's taken many different forms and has gone by many different names, so it's hard to say. He has no official nationality.

    What Asians are you referring to? There are East Asians i.e. Chinese, Japanese Korean and South Asians like Indian and Pakistani.

    South Asians can be quite tall.

    -Bison never switched bodies.

    -Rose did not come from Bison.

    -Bison's nationality was intentionally never stated, and his origin was likewise left undisclosed to make him seem more mysterious. Anyone who tells you his nationality is guessing.

    He is quite mysterious, he wears a Soviet Uniform and practices Lerdrit which is Thai. He's also has bases in South America like Brazil and Venezuela, he's also been to Vietnam and Cambodia.

    Lerdrit came from Capcom USA. I believe the fighting style Bison uses is simply called "Psycho Power."

    He's from Thailand right? I mean, in SFII, I assume that whatever you country you go to is where the guys from right? And when you fight Bison, you jump a plane to Thailand....

    [Edit]
    My bad. According to the SFII Turbo Instruction Manual:

    "M. Bison
    Date of Birth: Unknown
    Height: 5'1"
    Weight: 254 lbs.
    Blood Type: A
    Nationality: Unknown
    Fighting Style: Unknown

    Never has a man been more cloaked in secrecy than M. Bison."

    Yep, he's pretty much cloaked in secrecy

    Yeah, I was gonna say that's not always the case, Urien in SF 3 has stages in Egypt and Mexico it doesn't necessarily mean he's Mexican or Egyptian....(what is he by the way??!)

    given his actual name is Vega, he's a latino of some sort.. i would guess spanish

    i would think this is kind of obvious, especially for you sf comic/cannon nerds
  • two2tonetwo2tone R U Hmoob? Joined: Posts: 1,359
    Bison is a robots... He seems to use hella steriods during the Alpha series... then he got skinny again in SFII... then got Buff again... From looking @ the old Street Fighter (live actions) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0111301/ he is obviously... a guy from mexico or spain... but then again the OLD SF commercials that CAPCOM used to have played... he is an asian guy... so i wouldnt know either...

    I have a comment about Urien? What's the fucken use of wearing clothes when he strips every fucken match?
    The more I play SF4, the more I realize how 3S is such a better game SF4 is.

    Of course they did, quite a bit actually, just nothing that clear-cut finalizes his nationality.

    To ragnafrak, the name Vega is also Arabic.

    Are you saying that, aside from Rose, Bison never switched bodies, or are you saying that he never took over Rose temporarily before having the new body made for him?

    On the topic, Bison wasn't given a nationality in any canon source. I don't think he looks that Asian, either, but I can't tell since he doesn't even have pupils.
