M. Bison is scary as as hell in the '96 movie. I suppose this can be attributed to a number of things.
>The movie's upfront establishment of the consequences and lethality of its fights.
>the overall seriousness of its tone
>fact that a remorseless and almost godlike villain is hunting the MC
>and the personal knowledge that I couldn't stand up against the weakest character in the movie, let alone Bison if he were hunting me like he did Ryu.
Pretty damn good music helps too, and yet I can't easily put my finger on exactly what it is that makes M. Bison so terrifying to me or the situation so tense. This makes finding anime with similar levels of tension difficult to find. What have you watched that has thrilled you in this way?
