  • When Eagle was first designed, he was an homage to Petrov from Fist of Fury, a Bruce Lee film. When he was brought back for this game, however, he was intentionally restyled as an homage to Freddie Mercury, the famous frontman for Queen. Aside from the blonde hair, Eagle has the same physical appearance and fashion style as Freddie. Two of his voice clips are "the show must go on" and "no time for losers," which are lyrics from Queen songs. Additionally, many of Eagle's Japanese win quotes indicate that he's gay, while Freddie was bisexual. As such, Eagle is the first canonically and acknowledged gay Street Fighter character.
