Street Fighter series Edit
- Guile's theme (particularly the CPS II version from Super Street Fighter II)is so popular that it can be found on YouTube and several other media sources in videos that feature Guile's theme. The meme is appropriately titled "Guile's Theme goes with everything". The number of videos count grew to some 5,000+ as of 2018.
- A common developer oversight in Guile's early appearances was in one of his win quotes, "Go home and be a family man!" and "Are you man enough to fight me?!". He would say that randomly whenever he won a fight against any fighter, including Chun-Li. In later versions this was addressed; In SSFII, the quote was tweaked to "Are you bad enough to fight me?!". Either that or the quote became "Are you man enough to fight with me?".
- Interestingly, Guile's "Go home and be a family man" quote returns in Super Street Fighter IV, as his win quote against Ken. Another reference to the quote itself can be seen in Guile's win quote against Ibuki in which he tells her to "Go home and be a school girl".
- This phrase also returns in Street Fighter X Tekken as Ken's win quote against Guile; "You should go home and be a family man... Hey, I guess it applies to me too now".
- Also perhaps interestingly, after being assigned to voice Guile in the English version of Street Fighter IV, Travis Willingham would go on to marry Laura Bailey (Chun-Li's English voice actress), thus becoming a family man like Guile.
- Guile has a cameo in Final Fight 2 during the boss fight with Freddie in France. He can be seen in the background, cheering him on.
- Guile makes a cameo in X-Men vs. Street Fighter in Charlie's ending under the name "Charlie's friend". He is set to find out who was behind this, beginning the events of Guile's story in Street Fighter II.
- In the science fiction action-adventure game Crimson Tears, after completing certain conditions, the player can unlock character skins of Guile, Ryu, Chun-Li and Sakura.
Other video games Edit
- There are several non-Street Fighter-related games with character creation modes which include the choice of using Guile's hair, allowing a character based off him to be able to be made. These include most WWE Smackdown vs. Raw installments and Mortal Kombat: Armageddon.
- He has a cameo in Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law.
- He also makes a cameo in a Miniclip game called Assault Course.
- In the indie fighting game Skullgirls: 2nd Encore on the River King Casino stage, one of the two dogs that can be seen there is dressed as Guile and the other is dressed as Chun-Li. This was actually submitted by a Kickstarter backer to be put in the game.
- Rungo Iron from the Battle Arena Toshinden series has a similar hairstyle to Guile's.
Comics and Manga Edit
Television and AnimationsEdit
- He makes a cameo appearance in the first episode of the anime series Lucky Star, under the name of Foreigner. He was asking Tsukasa for directions, but Konata thought he was threatening to kidnap her, so she fought with him and won, using similar moves to Ryu, all the while fighting in Ryu's stage.
- He makes a cameo appearance in episode ten of the mature anime series Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt. He is seen riding in a truck and eating burger in the music video portion of the episode.
- Jorgen Von Strangle from the cartoon The Fairly OddParents! shares a few similarities with Guile, in that they're both tall, muscular males with flattop cuts and green fatigues that consist of a tight-fitting green tanktop with camouflage pants and combat boots.
- In Disney's 2012 video game-themed film, Wreck-It-Ralph, Guile makes a cameo as one of the portraits in Tappers.
