Street Fighter was a series of fighting video games released in the 1980s. The Brothers Chaps reference it in several of their cartoons.


  • Main Page 17 — The 20X6 Marzipan's pose is nearly identical to Chun-Li's victory pose from Street Fighter II (and all of the later Street Fighter variants and spinoffs). "Yatta!" is a Japanese word which means "I did it!", or "All right!" in English.
  • 20X6 Vs. 1936 — The kicking attack Stinkoman practices bears a strong resemblance to Chun Li's lightning kick attack from the Street Fighter 2 series.
  • 3 Times Halloween FunjobThe Poopsmith dresses up as M. Bison, the final boss of Street Fighter II.
    • The flaming maneuver the Poopsmith does when you click on him is M. Bison's Psycho Crusher attack from Street Fighter. The move was known in earlier versions of SFII as the "flaming torpedo". Hence, the reference to a "flaming Poopsmith".
  • Email FAQ — It states that, "That drawing of Homestar in the fan section is NOT Michael Jackson like you said. Did you know that? Same with that one you said is Ken from Street Fighter."
  • Email Dangeresque 3 — The pipes are broken!" is Homestar trying to say "Tatsumaki Senpuukyaku" a move from Street Fighter II usually called the Hurricane Kick in U.S. versions of the game. The name is changed because the characters' voices in Street Fighter II are hard to understand (due to low-quality recordings), and sound like they are saying something else. He says this because the kick is the same as Ryu's and Ken's hurricane kick in the games/movies.
  • Stinkoman 20X61-Up's spin-kick is similar to the Street Fighter move "Tatsumaki Senpuu Kyaku" (otherwise known as the Hurricane Kick).
  • Email Strong Badathlon — The Homestar Vs. Homestar fights may be a reference to the mirror match fights from Street Fighter.
