Since its initial release in 1987, the Street Fighter series has been widely recognized for its iconic sound effects that can be heard whenever players are in a match. From Ryu’s famous “Hadouken” slogan to the commonly used “Perfect” sample in hip-hop tracks, Capcom’s fighting game franchise is filled to the brim with random catchphrases that are still relevant today.

While most of the audio heard in Street Fighter titles is believed to have been created by Capcom itself, it appears some come from other notable forms of media. according to a Twitter post by Naughty Dog Senior Character Artist Del Walker, Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike’s “Let’s Go” sound effect that occurs when your Superbar charges up is actually a line from Adam West’s 1966 Batman TV show.
The short video that was attached to the same post first shows a fight between two classic characters in Akuma and Ryu. Immediately after one of the character’s superbars was charged, a soft “Let’s Go” from the game commentator could be heard over the noise of battle.
The same snippet then transitions into a digital audio workstation sequence in which the user shows how Adam West’s original line was distorted and altered until it became the recognizable Street Fighter sound effect.

Commenters under the same post initially speculated that the sound effect was inserted on purpose due to the game’s street theme. Fortunately, Walker would then confirm in a Answer that the audio clip was actually included on purpose as the entire 3rd Strike soundtrack uses samples from hip hop and jazz songs.
