Guy, Rolento and Sodom are from Capcom's "Final Fight" - Guy as a selectable character, Sodom as the second boss, and Rolento as the fourth boss. Guy's and Rolento's music are taken from "Final Fight".
In Guy's stage you will see many familiar faces from "Final Fight". There's Mike and Jessica Haggar, Cody, Poison, Andorre and a few other bosses in the background - most of the "Final Fight" characters that have gone on to other games are there.
In Rose's battle location there are represented the 'gondole', the typical elements of another and more famous Italian sea-town, Venice. This is clearly wrong cultural knowledge by Capcom's programmers.
Here is a list of cameos in Ken's Yacht stage :
* Eliza (It's her birthday after all!)
* Captain Commando & Sho
* Strider Hiryu (wielding a teddy bear!)
* Lynn Kurosawa (from Alien Vs Predator)
* Morrigan, Felicia, Zabel Zarock ('Lord Raptor' outside Japan) & Lei-Lei ('Hsien-Ko' outside Japan) (these last two are pretty much alive in this cameo, unlike in the Vampire & Vampire Savior games!) :)
* Michelle Heart (from "Ares no Tsubasa" as another waitress!)
* A few thugs from "Final Fight" (working as waiters?!)
Dan Hibiki, the pink-clad Shotokan fighter, was an attempt by Capcom to make fun of SNK fighting games. Ryo Sakazaki was thought to be so much like Ryu that Capcom had to make a statement. Dan is mainly a hybrid of Ryo Sakazaki and Robert Garcia from the "Art of Fighting" series. This is most evident in his appearance in which he has Robert Garcia's trademark pony tail and Ryo Sakazaki's black undershirt. His animations were heavily tailored to look like a take on the aforemetioned characters. Dan's father was killed by Sagat (This is the man who Sagat hits with a Tiger Uppercut during the Ryu vs. Sagat intro in "Street Fighter Alpha 3"), so Dan developed his own style of fighting called 'Saikyo-ryuu', which is Japanese for 'strongest style', a poke at the "Art of Fighting" 'Kyokugen' karate style ('Kyokugen" is Japanese for 'extreme'). Fei Long makes a guest appearance in Dan's stage.
The sumo wrestler 'Fujinoyama' that Sodom challenges in his ending had so much of a resemblance to E. Honda that Capcom, for "Street Fighter Alpha 3", changed it to E. Honda.
The Australian prairie stage where Sagat fights Ryu is based on the opening scene of the animated 'Street Fighter II Movie', in which Ryu and Sagat fight in a prairie during a thunderstorm.
Victor Entertainment released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Street Fighter Zero 2 : Capcom Game Soundtrack - VIZL-24) on June 21, 1996.
After the first release of SFZ2, an upgraded version of the game called "Street Fighter Zero 2 Alpha" was released in Japanese arcades in August 1996, and to home consoles in North America and Europe in 1997. It included some enhancements like new moves, a unique variation of Sakura, the survival mode, the dramatic battle and the player was able to fight with Zangief, Dhalsim and 'Satsui no Hadou Mezameta Ryu' (Evil Ryu).

Then highlight Adon, Gouki, Adon, then return to Ryu. Then hold Start for one second, while holding start press any attack button.

* Sally in Every Stage : In Dhalsim's stage you may have noticed a girl who cheers for him. That is his wife Sally, known as Sari in the Street Fighter comic book series by Udon. When you play as Dhalsim, its possible to make her appear on every fight by holding down LP+HK before the fight starts (You must do this at the beginning of every round).
* Alternate Sodom Stage : An alternate version of Sodom's stage appears every 4096 matches. The artwork on his truck is different. The Japanese text is replaced with English and the man on the side of the trailer is now wearing sunglasses. This alternate version of the stage is the one used in "Street Fighter Zero 2 Alpha".
* Fight against Shin Gouki : It only works with the character's first color (meaning the original color). Fight through the game without losing a single round. Get at least three perfect wins and three super special finishes. Shin Gouki appears as your last boss now.
