The son of a Russian senior bureaucrat, Biff has received special education in wrestling since he was a child. He practices an assortment of martial arts (sambo, karate, etc.) and has won many championships. Disliking showmanship, Biff prefers executing his attacks with concentrated power and playing out every move in his head. At one time, he was a student at Mike Haggar's gym, along with his friend/rival and fellow wrestler Gunloc. It upsets him greatly that some individuals consider wrestling to be fake.
Biff's quote when losing alludes to the possibility that he was once a training partner and/or is friends with Zangief: ("Comrade Zangief was right! You all play cheap!").
- Biff is believed to have been one of the influences in the character design for Alex from Street Fighter III.
- Biff's Japanese backstory states that he's from Moscow, Russia, but his USA profile lists Kiev as his home town.
- While the game says that Kiev is in Russia, it is actually located in the former Soviet republic of Ukraine.
- It's possible that due to their own similarities, Biff may have been based on and inspired by the late WWE wrestler Nikolai Volkoff.
