'--M. Bison'

'M. Bison', known as Vega (ベガ, Bega) in Japan, is the main antagonist of the Street Fighter II and Street Fighter Alpha series. He was inspired by Washizaki (鷲崎, Eagle Cape), a villain from the manga and anime Riki-Oh; and Yasunori Kato (加藤保憲), the antagonist from the fantasy film, Tokyo: the Last Megalopolis (aka Teito Monogatari, 帝都物語). In Street Fighter Alpha 3, he refers to himself by the full title of Master Bison (マスター・バイソン, Masutā Baison).
