This is a list of Dudley's references in general pop culture since his introduction in Street Fighter III: New Generation.
Street Fighter Edit
- In Final Fight: Streetwise, if the player enters Mike Haggar's gym and looks closely at the posters on the wall, they read "Dudley vs Balrog".
Other video games Edit
- Steve Fox from the Tekken series is similar to Dudley in terms of being British boxers; both are descripted as national boxing champions. Coincidentally, on Street Fighter X Tekken, in their win quotes, both wanted to clash each other on the ring, but they couldn't due to their different categories.
- One of Dudley's costume colors has a resemblance to Nintendo's mascot, Mario. Another one of his colors bears a resemblance to one of Mario's enemies, Wario.
- Makoto Nanaya from the BlazBlue series of games gains several of Dudley's moves when in her alternate "Unlimited" form; this includes the Short Swing Blow (renamed Shooting Star), Machine Gun Blow, Duck/Ducking Straight/Ducking Upper (renamed Dash Straight and Upper), Cross Counter (renamed Space Counter) and Rolling Thunder. She even gains a variant of Dudley's taunt, with an acorn replacing the rose. She also gains her Street Fighter namesake's Abare Tosanami and Seichusen Godanzuki.
Comics and Manga Edit
- Dudley looks similar in design to Major Alex Louis Armstrong from the Fullmetal Alchemist series. Also, both of them come from a wealthy family.
- In the fifth volume of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter book series, Dudley Dursley (Harry's bully cousin) is said by his father Vernon to have started practicing "the sacred sport of boxing". This is a coincidence, since both Dudleys are British and sport on boxing.
Television and Animations Edit
- His winquote in the prior two installments of Street Fighter III regarding tossing opponents into the Thames River bears reference to the slow motion river fight found in the 1970 Stanley Kubrick movie adaptation of the famous novel, A Clockwork Orange.
- Dudley's alternative costume in Super Street Fighter IV is a reference to rock legend Freddie Mercury of Queen and his costume from the 1986 Wembley concert.
