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?
Second one. He never switched bodies, ever, ever ever.
I wonder whatever happened to Rose if, as you say, her body was never taken over by Bison.
I always thought that her and Bison were good characters, but I think they wore Bison a little too thin over all the games and didn't really develop him too much. I mean, this topic, for example ? we don't even know his nationality.
... anybody else see anything wrong with this?
They never made any backstory on him at all?
Look at precrisis Bison (Alpha 3). Asians don't get that damned big.
TS, Vega's soul took over Rose's body during their battle in Zero 3. That was not made up. AAC says it, Rose's SFZ3 entry. Take it as you will.
Apparently, TS's strongest points were that 'it hasn't been stated, therefore it can't be true' and 'the endings dont support it, so it can't happen'
As we know both of those premises are very weak and easily proved true and false, kinda like saying 'ryu won the SFII tournament because he's clearly one of the best and because a lot of endings showed him walking away after beating bison.'
Now, when i first heard the body-switching 'theory', it was a direct translation from one of the official capcom books, AAC apparently, so i believed it to be fact.
TS, you have said nothing that truly disproves it, all you are saying is that you dont believe it in spite of the facts because there isn't enough in-game proof to please you...
Ok here it is...
"In the ending, it is revealed that the Lady was Vega's once Disciple. It was only near the end of the battle that she realised, too late, that she and Vega's souls were the same, subsequently, Vega's Soul and Rose's body continued in existence.."
AFAIK the argument here should be "Did Rose's ending, where Bison's Soul got transferred into her body, really happen?"
And from here, I shall just say that if that were true, then it's a rather weird end because then that means Bison's Body is no more, as he immediately disappears. So how do the other endings fit in?
1. I've NEVER seen anywhere stating that Rose came from Vega.
2. Rose makes it clear in the ending that vega was once her Master, as in TEACHER, not Lord. In the AAC Summary it is stated that she was his DISCIPLE. So the relationship is very clear here.
3. Vega says that his soul will live on.
4. Where it says
"Right... we'll return to where we belong... as was our wish!!
Two separate lives share the same... soul..."
it should actually mean
"Yes...right back where we began. Yours.... and My wish will succeed!"
I always figured he was middle eastern, like a mix of Muslim and Indian. That's just based on his skin tone and map spot though. It's just a completely uneducated guess.
