(Gouki)
…………。
(Vega)
フ… どうした?かかってこんのか?

そのすさまじい「気」、みせかけではあるまい!
(Vega)
Hmph... What's the matter? Aren't you going to attack?

Surely that tremendous "Ki" cannot be just for mere show!
(M. Bison)
Rarely have I seen such power!

Why do you hesitate?
(Gouki)
…うぬに倒せるか…?
我こそ拳を極めし者なり!!

...could you defeat...?
I alone am the one who has mastered the fist!!
(Akuma)
Is it possible that you can defeat me?
No! I will always triumph!
ゴウテツ……ゴウケン……
そしてベガ……。
あらゆる強敵がゴウキに倒された。
『殺意の波動』の前になすすべもなく沈んでいった……。
Goutetsu..... Gouken.....
And now Vega......
Many formidable enemies have been defeated by Gouki.
They all fell helplessly before the "murderous surge"......
If evil has a name it is Akuma!
Many have opposed this warrior.
All have failed.
Powerless against his great skill, even Bison fears the mighty Akuma.
「我を超えるものはこの世に存在せぬのか」
「ならばこの世に生きる道理もなし……」
"Doesn't there exist anyone in this world who can surpass me?"
"In that case there is also no reason to live in this world....."
There is no one who can defeat me.
My quest is at an end.
Yet I am... empty...
究極の拳を手に入れた男の孤独。

最強への到達……
それは終焉のことなのか?
The loneliness of the man who has obtained the ultimate fists.

Attaining the title strongest......
Does it mean the end?
For some, it's the path not the goal.
