Eagle's initial design in the original ''Street Fighter'' is a homage to the character Petrov (a bodyguard hired by noblemen) portrayed by [[wikipedia:Robert Baker (martial artist)|Robert Baker]] from the [[wikipedia:Bruce Lee|Bruce Lee]] film, ''[[wikipedia:Fist of Fury|Fist of Fury]]''.

Starting with his ''Capcom vs. SNK 2'' incarnation (based off his appearance in the [[Street Fighter Alpha (manga)|''Street Fighter Alpha'' manga]]), it is apparent that Eagle had been made into an homage to the late [[wikipedia:Queen (band)|Queen]] frontman, [[wikipedia:Freddie Mercury|Freddie Mercury]]. In addition to resembling a blonde version of Mercury, some of Eagle's voice clips are remniscent of him (such as "the show must go on" and "no time for losers"). This has lead to speculation that since Mercury is commonly believed to have been homosexual (Mercury himself stated he was actually bisexual), Eagle is as well (one or the other); this is backed up by several of his Japanese winquotes, which seem to indicate as much.

* In the original ''Street Fighter'', Eagle's stage is in front of a castle (presumably that of the noble family he works as a bodyguard for) standing in British countryside and overlooking a lake in a valley. The English castle background from [[Cammy]]'s stage in the ''Street Fighter II'' games is reminiscent of Eagle's background.

* [[Dudley]] shares some similarities with Eagle; he also wears a dinner suit and hails from England, and has the same characteristics of being a gentleman and upholding chivalrous values.

** While [[Necro]] is completely different from Eagle in terms of visual appearance, two of his special moves ([[Flying Viper]] and [[Tornado Hook]]) are highly reminiscent of Eagle's moves from the original ''Street Fighter''.

* In ''Capcom vs. SNK 2'' and ''Street Fighter Alpha 3 MAX,'' it is shown that Eagle and [[Zangief]] have some sort of rivalry before they fight. However, this is somewhat dubious, since they have never been shown interacting with each other. Rather, it is more likely that said intro is actually based in the fact that both of them have similar special moves (Zangief's [[Double Lariat]] and Eagle's [[Manchester Black]]).
