This unsettled him greatly. When he realized that others were destined to defeat Shadowloo, he allowed them to do so. He has since returned home.
Fights with two rods. Part of the original England team. Eagle was hired to fight in the First Street Fighter Tournament by an unknown individual.
Rumored to be an MI5 agent. Eagle also participated in the events surrounding the first Psycho Crusher.
He apparently after his defeat in the First Street Fighter Tournament, in which he was hired to fight Sagat, he is still after his target. It would seem he does indeed meet up with Sagat, but what occured is unclear. At the height of his career, Sodom interupted one of his matches and tried to recruit him into Mad Gear. He refused and they fought.
Soon after, Birdie came to his school and tried to recruit him into Shadowloo. Honda thought he was joking and beat him in a match. After this he decides to take a break from sumo to face other styles of fighting. He went to Thailand to help destroy Vega's evil empire. Both he and Zangief trashed Vega's base before Nash's squadron bombed it. When Vega announced the Second Street Fighter Tournament, Honda joined in hopes of gain- ing respect for the art of sumo. After the tournament, he returned to sumo.
It gave Ryu the same powers Akuma weilds. For more info, see Ryu. However because of a street brawl, his father sent him to the United States. Trouble followed him there when Mike Bison tried to recruit him in to Shadowloo. He refused and beat Mike.
After the he was hunted by Shadowloo's top men. Eventually he managed to shake them off. Soon a director discovered him. Using Fei Long's life story, they made a movie. It was a smash hit and even took home awards at the premiere movie award show.
Fei Long continued this career, but eventually became bored with the lack of talent those he fought had. After competeing he went back to his movie career.
Afterwards, he sought Gouki, the dark warrior. Gen did finally find Gouki. During the battle Gen realized Gouki's mastery of the dark hadou. They fought to a standstill and both managed to escape death. Gen thought that he had indeed triumphed over Gouki. When Gouki began to increase his power, Gen went after him again. They met up for a sec- ond time. Gouki's power had increased and he used it to kill Gen. The master of dark power is one of the most feared villians in the entire video game world!
Shortly after the tournament, Akuma began searching the world for worthy opponents. Eventually he found his master, Gotetsu. Taken by surprise, Gouki finished him off. Then he dropped in on the Shotokan school. When he left, the school was ruined and everyone, including his brother, was dead. He then set his sights on the two "missing" students Ken and Ryu.
Gouki waited on an island off the coast of Japan for Ryu. Ryu soon came and they battled. In the end, Ryu won and Gouki retreated. Gouki began traveling the world again. The Chinese assasain Gen found him in China. Three years later, he meets with Gen again. This time Gouki kills the assasain. He then resurfaced at the end of the Second Street Fighter Tournament. After killing Vega before the final round, he hunted down Ryu.
They battled and event- ually Gouki was defeated. Gouki disappeared again after that. Wandering the world again, Oro finds him and defeats Gouki. Could this be his end? Gouki tackles his foe P away: Gouki lunges and attacks with his palm K close: Gouki throws his foe K away: Gouki drop-kicks his foe nothing: Gouki slide kicks his foe Super Combos: Guile was always proud to call himself a friend of Charlie Nash.
Along the way, he ran into Chun Li who tried to stop him. Guile emerged victorious and continued on the Shadowloo's base. There he fought Nash and then decided to help him find Vega.
Guile ordered the base bombed in an attempt to flush out Vega. Vega came out and battled both of them. In the fight, Nash and Guile were seperated. It was later found out that Vega killed Nash.
In the end, both Guile and Chun Li made it to the final round. Vega was, of course, there too. This time, Chun Li took down Guile and faced Vega. Chun Li defeated and probaby killed Vega. Guile then vanishes from the story. As a side note, Guile and Ken are brothers-in-law their wives are sisters. His master is Zeku. As Guy trained, Zeku saw that the "evil intent" was showing signs of appearing. As such, Genryusai warned Guy against it and then sent him away.
Guy is a good friend of Mayor Haggar. After leaving his master, he travelled to Metro City. Guy went after Mad Gear with Cody and Haggar. Together they took the gang down. However, both Roletto and Sodom remember what he did, and plotted revenge.
He caught up with Sodom in the American desert. While he was doing this, Retu kidnapped Genryusai and Rena, his girlfriend. Guy returned to Metro City, but was unable to help because Haggar had already gone off in search of them.
Guy did however find Roletto. They fought and Guy came out victorious. When Haggar returned, Guy once again began travelling the world. His friend Cody however, had been arrested.
Cody was put in prison, but soon escaped. Guy eventually tracked Cody down and confronted him. Cody blew Guy off and they battled. Guy beat Cody, but decided to let him escape. In Thailand, Guy began searching for the woman named Rose. He found here almost dead outside Shadowloo HQ. He brought her to safety and then continued his journeys.
United By Fate, Rival Schools: Evolution, Rival Schools 2: Project Justice Kyosuke does not actually appear in Street Fighter Zero 3 Upper, however when the game was first announced there was some discussion about him on the Crawfish boards.
It was stated there that Capcom did not ask for Kyosuke to be included, although there were rumors that he would be since Eagle, Maki, and Yun. Kyosuke hails from Taiyou Gakuen High School. Battling through the high schools of Japan, the group eventually confronted Hyo Imawano, the student behind the disappearances. Justice High School engaged in kidnapping in order to try and secure the best and brightest students to use in their plan to restore Japan to it's pre-democracy state. The students there have been brainwashed into executing a diabolical plan to take over all of Japan and form a military dictatorship.
Using the power of love and friendship they manage to counteract the brainwashing and return the school to normal. A year passes and more trouble arises. A new organization, the Darkside Student Council, appears with the intent of carrying out the former mission of Justice High School. A new villan, Kurow Kirishima, is behind this ressurgence. Once more the best students Japan has to offer square off once more Street Fighter Zero 3 One of the girls kidnapped by Shadowloo, Juli still has some memories of her life before Vega began her training.
Juli is said to be of Dutch descent. Together with Juni, they make up Vega's personal guard. Both were defeated and have disappeared. One of the twelve girls Vega had kidnapped Juni showed promise in her training. As a result both her and Juli became Vega's body- guards. When Ken first came to Thailand, Vega ordered the team to attack him. They were defeated and have disappeared. Also, she is not T. Hawk's sister Enero is his sister. As a side note, there are thirteen girls that fight for Vega.
There is Cammy of course. The other twelve are named after months. They are with home countries in paranthesis: Juni throws her foe with her legs nothing: Street Fighter Zero 3 Karin is the young heir to the Kanzuki family. To gain notoriety, she has decided to find and beat Sakura in a match.
After Sakura trained with Dan, she was invited to Karin's yacht for a match. The result remains unclear, but it was enough to cause Karin to lose interest in further fights. They soon became friendly rivals. Ryu con- vinces Ken to compete on the same team as him. Together they managed to defeat the Muay Thai champ himself.
Afterwards, Ken met Eliza. They dated for a while, but soon married, making him Guile's brother-in-law. Every year from then on Ryu and Ken have a match. After Ryu fought Sagat for a second time, Ken beat Ryu. As a parting gift, Ken gave Ryu his red headband. For some reason, Ken travelled to Thailand in There he met Ryu. They had a friendly fight, which Ken lost.
Ken was thrown aside, and Ryu battled with the Shadowloo leader.

At this point Ken blacks out. When he awakens Ryu is nearby and Vega has disappeared. Ken and Ryu Say goodbye and leave Thailand. Ken's first son is born soon after. Ryu convinces Ken to compete once again. In the semi-finals, Ken and Ryu meet again. This time Ken is victorious, but he loses to Guile in the next round. Ken then returns back home. Ken agrees and begins training Sean. As this is going on, Ken also starts teaching Mel, his son, Shotokan. Sean however heads right for it.
Maki didn't know what to do, so she tried to contact Guy, Rena's boy- friend. Instead she found Mike Haggar. He immeadiately agreed to help her find Retu. Together with Carlos, they searched the world for Retu.
They ran into Roletto in Italy, who told them Retu was in Japan. They travelled there and found Retu atop a dojo. The battle began and, in the end, Maki kicked Retu and sent him through the paper wall. He plunged to his death. Thanking Haggar, she went home with Rena and Genryusai.
A few years later, Maki set off on another journey. She began searching for Guy, having not seen him since before Retu's defeat. She did eventually find him, and presumably convinced him to return home. He learned the hard way that cheating will damage one's professional career. Afterwards he was approached by Vega. Vega asked if he would like to join Shadowloo and make lots of money. Mike thought this was a good idea and oversaw the Shadowloo gambling rackets in Las Vegas. Life was good until one day when a man named Fei Long arrived at Mike's favorite casino.
Upset, to say the least, Mike attacked Fei Long and was defeated. The next he heard of Fei Long was his acceptance speach at the most respected movie award ceremony on the planet a movie had been made about Fei Long's run-ins with Shadowloo. Humiliated, Mike went back to running his casinos, until Vega "requested" that he participate in the Second Street Fighter Tournament. He didn't win, but who cares? He was making lots of money as it was although Vega's defeat brought his rackets close to closer.
She was kidnapped by Vega and brainwashed into becoming one of his dolls. Eventually she rebelled against Vega with the other dolls, and was apparently defeated.
She also fought her brother, as ordered by Vega, so it is unclear exactly how both events occured.
Street Fighter Alpha 3 - Moves List
After her defeat at the hands of her brother, Thunder grabbed her and brought her ack home with him. In the game she is represented by Juni in one fight with Thunder Hawk. She takes the stage name Rainbow Mika. Witnessing the horror of war, and then seeing that his country cared little for "losers," Roletto realized that the US needs reform. To fulfill his dream, Roletto joined Mad Gear Gang thinking they would be the catalysts for a new country. Helping to subdue Metro City, Roletto set up his headquarters in am abandoned construct- ion site.
Then Haggar was elected mayor. As Haggar and company ripped through town, Roletto dug in. When they arrived at his home turf, Roletto anbushed them.
However Haggar, Cody, and Guy fought back and beat his men. He engaged Guy in combat, but was beaten. Belgar was killed soon after.
As the gang regrouped, Roletto went after Guy. He searched the world for him, but they ended up meeting back in Metro City. They fought and again Roletto was beaten. Fleeing to Italy he was contacted by Retu, Mad Gear's new leader. He agreed to try and hold of Haggar and his new allies for Retu who had kidnapped Reni and Genryusai. Roletto battled Haggar, Maki and Carlos atop a building. After a long fight, Roletto fell to the ground defeated.
He told Haggar where Retu was and, taking advantage of Haggar's shock, escaped capture. Rolleto returned to Metro City and tried to take over Mad Gear.
However, the ressurection of Belgar and the traitorous actions of El Gado foiled his plans. After defeating El Gado, he left town. He then met up with Sodom. They fought and Roletto won. Bound by honor, Sodom swore loyalty to Roletto.
They have since been compiling their forces, planning for an unknown action. She apparently once aided Vega, but has since beem ordered by her masters to hunt him down and kill him. Rose searched for Vega all over the world. She eventually learned his whereabouts and confronted him. They fought, and it appeared that Vega had died.
However she soon discovered this was not the case A man came to her seeking help. He told a story of how Shadowloo had kidnapped his sister, Aprile, and explained that the man behind this was Vega.
Shocked by this, Rose set out once more. Rose began looking for Vega harder after that incident. As she searched, she met Ryu. Rose realized that Vega would search for Ryu and tried to stop Ryu's travels.
She was beaten but warned Ryu about "that man. Rose continued on to Italy and faced Vega.
Vega defeated and apparently left her for dead. However, Guy found her and saved her life. It was not learned until much later that Rose's body had in fact been possessed by the soul of Vega He trained long and hard. In fact he trained so hard that he almost lost sight in one eye during practice. This was a small detourent though, for he defeated the Muay Thai champion and became the greatest fighter in Thailand.
Go Hibiki came to Sagat and challenged him to a match after that. Go took advantage of Sagat's bad eye in the fight. As it drug on, Go leaped forward and plucked out Sagat's bad eye. Enraged, Sagat killed Go. Sagat then took an apprentice, Adon. After extensive training he called the First Street Fighter Tournament. Two young Shotokan students, Ken and Ryu, made it to the finals to face him. Sagat decided to battle Ryu. They fought a long battle.
In the end, Ryu used a dragon punch to defeat Sagat and scare his chest. Humiliated by his defeat, Sagat sent Adon away and isolated himself. Vega came to him and asked Sagat to join Shadowloo. Sagat didn't want any part of a criminal organization, but Vega offered him a chance tto find Ryu. Sagat agreed on that matter to help Vega. Adon came with Vega and fought Sagat. Sagat let him win, to appease Adon. He did the same for Dan Hibiki when he came to fight Sagat.
Sagat then found Ryu and they fought. This time Sagat won. He then left Shadow- loo. One year later, Vega captured Ryu. Vega planned on using Ryu to conquer the world. Vega had awakend the "evil intent" in Ryu. With the help of Sakura and Ken, they managed to stop Vega and free Ryu. Vega escaped into his HQ, but Sagat didn't have time to chase him. Instead he helped get Ryu to safety. The Second Street Fighter Tournament is held.
Sagat joins to fight Ryu once more and reclaim his title. In the semi-finals, Ryu and Sagat battled. It is unknown what happened, but neither of the warriors fought for the duration of the tournament. Sagat now waits in Thailand for worthy opponents. Evolution Sakura Kasugano attended middle school in Japan. These stitches are shown to be attached to darker-colored skin across his arms and even the right side of his facewhich could mean that said skin may either be burned, or not his own.
To top it all off, his personality is significantly darker. This is definitely not the Charlie we remember from Alpha. At the end of Alpha 2. But it appears that somebody had some His Alpha 2 ending, in which a U.
V confirms that this was Charlie's canon fate. One of Charlie's grabs in SFV has him slip behind the opponent, put them in a sleeperhold, and then toss them aside, all while shouting "Go to sleep! Although generally serious, in Street Fighter Alpha 3, Charlie gained a winquote: Are you mad at me?
Did I 'tick' you off? Cruel and Unusual Death: Charlie appears to die in the story of every single game he appears in, and it's never truly dignified; at best he gets a Heroic Sacrifice. Worse endings of note include being ambushed by Bison and being betrayed by corrupt military personnel. And even though he does get something resembling a heroic death, he dies at a very young age; he is in his mid-late 20s at the time of Alpha 3.
Bison himself acknowledges this; Bison: So not only does he not get a truly dignified death, but now he doesn't even get a Heroic Sacrifice. That comes in V's cinematic story. Gives his opponent a menacing one right before unleashing Judgement Saber. In the Alpha series. This is surprisingly carried over to Street Fighter V, although turned down like most of his endearing traits. He can be heard muttering "Too easy Defiant to the End: Spends his seemingly last few minutes fighting Bison, and, according to accompanying comics, mocking Bison's failure every second of them.
Died in Your Arms Tonight: His V arcade mode ending has him deal the final blow to Bison rather than Ryu, but he still ends up giving his life in the process. This time he dies in Guile's arms with a smile on his face. His win quotes against Cammy and Chun-Li in V shows that his obsession with revenge has so blinded him to reason that he is perfectly willing to kill his former allies if they get in his way.
To Chun-Li Get in my way again, and I'll kill you where you stand. To Cammy If you were his servant, then you are just as guilty. Nash used to be a charge character, playing almost exactly like Guile, but in V he is a motion character with a more offensive edge.
Being an advanced Revenant Zombie tends to have that effect. Also, since he's on Borrowed Timehe's not going to get his tasks done by turtling around. The Dog Bites Back: Despite being a living exemplar of justice, Charlie is routinely rewarded with betrayals and tragedies throughout his backstory.
Upon his return he questions just what use it is to help others, when all he was rewarded with was pain and suffering. Since Guile needs his best buddy to stay dead in order to have the motivation to tear out Bison's spinal cord and jam it up his assCharlie must die in every ending to keep the universe from going out of whack.
This was almost averted in Alpha 3, where Charlie actually survived, but Guile's inclusion in the home ports rectified this "oversight". Nash in Japan, Charlie everywhere else. Averted ever since Guile was seen holding a "Charlie Nash" dog tag in his Street Fighter IV story mode, consolidating the full name in canon and allowing them to safely bill him as Nash across all regions in Street Fighter V. Heavily Type I, though fortunately not in an irritatingly stereotypical way.
He's basically Guile turned up a notch. Charlie teleports towards his opponent who becomes surrounded by a black mist. While the opponent searches for him, Charlie rises up behind them, a sinister gleam flashes across his glasses, and then he slams a vertical Sonic Hurricane into the opponent's head.
Nash's V-Skill, Bullet Clear, lets him reach out and pluck projectiles out of the air coming his direction, transforming them into energy for the V-Trigger. This becomes a crucial plot point in the Cinematic Story Mode where he uses his power to drain Bison of his Psycho Power and weaken him enough for Ryu to finish him off.
The Tragedy Assault, in which Charlie performs a flying leap and slams his opponent into the ground by their face before infusing them with Ki and tossing them away. His new design features a good third of his face composed of ashen grey skin held together by massive staples, plus a gem embedded in his forehead. In Alpha he was an incredibly handsome man, loved by both fangirls and fanboys alike. In V, however, the Body Horror that he was subjected to has left horrifying marks not only in his psyche, but in his body.
His Sonic Move V-Trigger allows him to teleport above, behind, or infront of his opponent. He dies in all of his endings, including X-Men vs. The only exception is Street Fighter Alpha 3, although they "fixed" this "oversight" by having him die again in Guile's ending for the console versions.
The Street Fighter IV Character Relations chart by Capcom revealed that Charlie raided a Shadaloo base and rescued Abel purportedly in the interim between Alpha 3 and IV, providing an early hint towards his return and grudge against Bison, as well as the part in the cinematic story of SFV where Abel recognizes Nash walking away at the Kanzuki mansion as he recovers from the corrupting influence of Psycho Power which Nash had just Bullet Cleared out of his system.
It may also help make sense of the Continuity Snarl that was presented in his return story with his Alpha 2 death established as his canon death, retconning out his Heroic Sacrifice in Guile's Alpha 3 campaign mode. Unlike Guile, who was added to Alpha 3 for the console editions, Nash was in the original arcade release, and in Nash's own campaign, he tracked down Bison, survived their fight, and destroyed the secret Shadaloo base Bison was using at the time.
The implication was the events of Nash's campaign took place at some point in the past, presumed at the time to be prior to the events of Guile's, however with the latter's retcon they also could've easily taken place before his Alpha 2 death. The hint that he rescued Abel may have been a part of that mission, and it might be related to why he lost his cool and decided to go after Bison alone in Alpha 2 according to his prologue flashback in V.
In any case, Abel recognizing Nash confirms the details of the chart. Nash's comments after fighting Ryu on how much stronger he expected the latter to be with the power of the Satsui no Hado foreshadow a major hint about A Shadow Falls. Dhalsim explaining that Ryu needs to face his Hado instead of suppressing it so that he can control the power and not the other way around turns out to be the answer that Ryu needed in order to push forward with his training, and between getting humbled via curb stomped by Bison in his attempt at vengeance and having his conscience stirred by Rashid's mention of his missing friend, Nash realizes he lacks the ability to kill the Dictator but Ryu may be able to.
So he decides to use the little time he has left to rejoin his friends, then come back and fight Bison again as part of their final assault on Shadaloo so he can gorge on Bison's Psycho Power via Bullet Clear until his body overloads and explodesweakening Bison enough so that Ryu, who just mastered the Hado and turned back Necalli decisively, would be able to destroy him.
His Heel Realization in his winquote against Necalli about a battle of monsters; the way his prologue story establishes that he'd been losing his cool about Bison as far back as his fateful Alpha 2 mission as well as that his current state is "dead man walking"; in fact, anything he says during gameplay, winquotes, or prologue scenes that isn't handing around death threats; all hint at the fact that Nash actually still has his own mind and his Tunnel Vision about killing Bison up until halfway through A Shadow Falls is not an unnatural side effect of coming Back from the Dead.
He has major trust issues thanks to his own military's betrayal, his already-burning hatred for Bison has been stoked even further by the extent of Shadaloo's reach and the fact he got played for a fool, and he knows that he's living on borrowed time.
None of these circumstances are exclusive to the undead, and they all can affect a person's psyche. His appearance in Street Fighter V evokes this, with stitched-together flesh on his face, forearm and torso made more obvious because said flesh is a different, darker colour. For Halloween, his costume takes it even further, with neck bolts added to make the connection even more obvious. The Glasses Come Off: His fight intro in the Alpha series.
Capcom Fighting All-Stars would have averted this, however. This is averted in Street Fighter V. The glasses are for show. Charlie has perfect eyesight. He may be back in V, but it's clear that the process used to revive him has left him a mismatched horror, complemented with a shift to a far darker personality and by further association, move-set.
Subverted somewhat; the mismatched appearance and unnatural powers may be related to the revival process, but his new ruthless approach has everything to do with the events that put him in that grave. Additionally, he can be heard muttering "Too easy!
A variant in the Tragedy Assault. Charlie's win quote against Necalli seems to indicate that even he knows that he is going too far in his pursuit of revenge.
Especially in a battle between monsters Guile's Alpha 3 ending has him staying behind to kill a freshly regenerated Bison and destroy the Psycho Drive. This ending is believed to be canon, with the added twist that Bison, rather than retreating to the Psycho Drive, was regenerated by it after being defeated by Ryu, Sagat, Sakura, and Ken.
Street Fighter V retcons this and confirms that his Alpha 2 ending is his true death. In the cinematic story mode, however, he finally gets a proper and dignified sacrifice, giving up his life to de-power Bison as much as possible so that Ryu can destroy his body. After years of hiding, Charlie makes his triumphant return in Street Fighter V Though not as we remember him.
In SFV there's a mod that renders him shirtless to further drive home this trope. In the actual story, it only happens briefly, and he eventually remembers everything. His intro in V has him threatening to kill his opponent if they stand in his way and his winquote against Bison has him declaring he came back to kill him. Both are signs that Charlie is Not Himself. His Critical Art activation quote as well; "I'll end you! In gameplay, it's no faster than any of the other projectiles.
In V, Urien only ever refers to him as an "it", or as a doll or puppet. Jerkass Has a Point: Despite his bluntness, his Street Fighter V winquotes death threats aside usually invoke this. Highlights include calling Rainbow Mika on fighting far outside her element, lecturing Karin on her raging overconfidence, and remarking on how Ryu isn't as strong as he could be due to suppressing the Killing Intent. The latter example also counts as major foreshadowing.
His Flash Kicks also utilize Ki focused into his legs. Killed Off for Real: In pretty much every game, with Alpha 2 and V being the canon examples. Know When to Fold 'Em: After getting curbstomped by Bison after his resurrection, Nash got the heck out of dodge when he realized he was outmatched. He didn't give up on his goal of killing Bison but knew he wouldn't be the one to finish the job.
In the international versions of the game, he is normally referred to as "Charlie" while he's a good guy at least by friends but switches to "Nash" after returning with a more dark and ruthless personality. Served as one to Guile. After his first death, Guile turns extremely bitter and introverted. Ironicallyin his return, Nash himself would do exactly the same. Living on Borrowed Time: In V, Helen reveals that he was only brought back to destroy Bison and only has a short time left before his body gives out and he dies again.
Charlie is well aware of this. His hair is a little paler in V. Not himself, but his Alpha 3 theme is named "Decisive Bout", and also happens to refer to his fight against M. Bison, one of the most significant fights in the series. It finishes with Bison's strongest body destroyed, the Psycho Drive in ruins, and Shadaloo temporarily crippled. It also leads to the formation of S.
N and Abel being rescued from Shadaloo. Unfortunately, it ends with Charlie missing, and, as Street Fighter V shows, mortally wounded and mutilated. Speaking of which, that brings us to his "Paradoxical Avenger" title in V. His body is mortally wounded and physically dead, yet he's traveling and fighting and scouting enemies, essentially a dead man walking. Then there's his ultimate goal being vengeance on Bison and Shadaloo.
His end comes before he even has a chance to finish teaching Guile. He returns to Street Fighter V with a stitched together body. Urien's character story reveals that the green parts of his body come from Eleven, the prototype for Twelve. Already very handsome, and he goes around in nothing but pants and a flak jacket, exposing his quite ripped physique to the world. The comics make a big deal of emphasizing his abs and muscles.
Even in Street Fighter V where Charlie is mutilated, the flak jacket only exposes the intact parts of his torso, which just so happens to include his abs. Never Found the Body: Bison, grand master of the Villain Ball that he is, decided that searching for his body wasn't necessary.
The Illumination the other hand, were smart enough to decide otherwise. Lo and behold, Charlie is shown to be alive and well to a degree as of V.
No Body Left Behind: In the General Story of V, absorbing Bison's Psycho Power causes his body to overload and results in an explosion that only leaves his dog tags behind for Guile to collect.
Depending on how canon the new Arcade Mode endings in AE are, however, this may be a subversion as his body remains intact and he dies for real in Guile's arms. No Place for Me There: One of his win quotes implies that even if he succeeds in killing Bison, he will likely have no reason to continue living even if he has saved the world.
Adding to this is the fact that the military, who betrayed him, has written him off as legally dead, and given his appearance, showing that he is alive would cause more than a few problems. There is no future for me, just as there is no longer one for you. It actually turns out to be more than that. As in, he did actually die but was temporarily revived by the Illuminati since they want Bison dead as much as he does. He's only even "alive" long enough to go after Bison anyway.
Not Even Bothering with the Accent: Despite being American, he has a Japanese accent, because the games didn't have English VAs until the late '90s. Gone is the cool, snarky, level-headed partner and mentor to Guile from the Alpha series.
In V, Charlie's behavior is much more serious and menacing, coldly announcing to his opponent that he will kill them if necessary.
Not So Above It All: Despite his obsession with revenge in SFV, he isn't above making a few sarcastic quips to his foes "Too easy! This is a hint that the old Nash is still in there somewhere, which is proven by his actions in the cinematic story after getting his ass handed to him by Bison. His newfound brutality, coldness, and vengeful nature make him resemble Bison himself all too closely. He also became this to pre- Character Development Guile, who was also fixated on revenge In Ryu's story mode, Charlie seeks him out because he thinks his new power and Ryu's Satsui no Hadou might be similar.
However, after fighting Ryu who refuses to give in to or use the Satsui no HadouCharlie says that he might have been mistaken. Still, he encourages Ryu to embrace it, much like Charlie has embraced his darker side. Holding off Bison at the end of Alpha 3 to ensure that Bison wouldn't escape the explosion. Retconned and replaced by V with draining Bison's Psycho Power until he can't take anymore and explodes in order to weaken Bison enough for Ryu to kill the bastard. The man who advocates a cool-headed efficient fighting philosophy goes and tracks down M.
Bison on his own while he's in no condition to fight, then refuses to either pull back and recover or accept Guile's help when the latter catches up to him. Even Guile can tell he's obviously not thinking straight, and it only goes downhill from there.
Our Zombies Are Different: The CG opening in which he appears in a cracked open grave may not have been just for show. Several win quotes by characters in V note that Charlie may be up and walking around, but his body is physically dead. In his story mode, Ed taunts him by saying his body probably won't last very long. Every living thing has a weakness, but I guess that wouldn't apply to you. Living or dead, in my stomach, all are equal.
I'd be more worried about yourself. Aren't you supposed to be dead?
Since you're oblivious, here's some free advice: Dead bodies generally don't move around or fight people. I wouldn't bet much on your body lasting too long. Then there's his win quote against Necalli about a "battle between monsters". Helen eventually confirms that he actually is dead and was experimentally cross-stitched back to life for a limited time.
Charlie attempted to pass his as-of-yet unnamed martial art on to Guile, but the events of Alpha 3 occurred before he could finish, leaving Guile to fill in the gaps on his own.
