Chun Li’s Mega Man 9 Cameo

By Spencer . September 23, 2008 . 11:06am

chunlimm9Did you watch Mega Man 9′s introduction video before challenging the eight robot masters? Chun Li briefly makes an appearance in it as a newscaster! This isn’t the only time Chun Li appeared in a game outside of the Street Fighter series. She’s an Easter Egg in Breath of Fire too. Still a neat surprise for Capcom fans though.


There is another reference Mega Man fans should be able to pick up in the intro sequence. Take a look at Dr. Wily’s Swiss Bank account number…

    December 17th 1987? that’s the release date of Megaman I

  • James A. Calwell III

    That’s not the cameo I would have used. I don’t get the connection between Chun-Li and the media.

  • Chow

    …Other than the non-canon Street Fighter Van Damme movie.

  • James A. Calwell III

    Oh yeah.

    It’s funny they sneak in these references :)

    I was hoping for more 8-bit cutscenes other than the intro, you don’t even get a great pose on the new weapon screen. Still, enjoying the old school madness tremendously, only beaten 3 bosses so far..

    The one thing I was so happy they “included”? The fact that you can still employ the “make the enemy disappear if they traverse far enough off-screen” trick – done mostly with those enemies that slide super fast on the ground when Megaman’s on the same platform. I keep doing it halfway into Concrete Man’s level where there’s that long segment with the sliding enemy over the spikes. I make him disappear every time.

    Has anyone actually beat this game? I am embarassed to say this but I can’t get past a single stage……I guess I am a bit “too” rusty when it comes to these 8-bit games. This game makes all of todays current titles seem like cake walks.
