SUPER STREET FIGHTER II - THE NEW CHALLENGERS
Simultaneously press the L and R buttons to cancel character selection (Versus Mode only).
Each of the attack buttons as well as the Start button will give you a different costume color. An eighth costume color can be selected by pressing and holding any Punch or Kick button for a few seconds.
SUPER STREET FIGHTER II TURBO
The two codes listed above also work for Super Street Fighter II Turbo.
Akuma can be selected in two ways. The long method is to highlight Ryu (or Ken), T. Hawk, Guile, Cammy, and Ryu (or Ken) for 3 seconds each, then placing the cursor on any character and pressing Start, then all 3 Punch buttons simultaneously. The easier method is to highlight Ryu and press both the L and R buttons simultaneously.
The SUPER (more commonly known as OLD) characters can also be selected in two ways. The following lists the arcade method of selecting these characters. Choose your character with any button and then press the following, finishing with LP (or LP+LK for alternate costume color):
Ryu: Right, Right, Right, Left
Ken: Left, Left, Left, Right
E. Honda: Up, Up, Up, Down
Chun-Li: Down, Down, Down, Up
Blanka: Right, Left, Left, Left
Zangief: Left, Right, Right, Right
Guile: Up, Down, Down, Down
Dhalsim: Down, Up, Up, Up
T. Hawk: Right, Right, Left, Left

Cammy: Up, Up, Down, Down
Dee Jay: Down, Down, Up, Up
Balrog: Left, Right, Right, Left
Vega: Down, Up, Up, Down
Sagat: Up, Down, Down, Up
M. Bison: Right, Left, Right, Left
An easier way to select these characters is to hold down the R button, then press any attack button (LK for alternate color).
To face Akuma in Arcade Mode, reach Stage 12 without using any continues.
