Rival Dialogues

Rose: "My mind is made up. Is it your place to try and help me? Even if so, your help is not anything that I need nor want."


Guy: "Soul Power..." Most impressive! But never underestimate his power. He's a man of such evil energy, even my kindred fear him."

Rose: "Thanks for the advice, but I must continue on my path..."

Vs. Vega

Rose: "Vega! Warrior of Shadaloo! I've finally found you! You know where Bison is, don't you? Tell me!"

Vega: "I have no reason to do such... However, as your name implies you possess the beauty and thorns of a rose. So I shall adorn you in a pure red to suit your name better."


Vega: "Remember... Bison looks forward to your challenge... I don't understand his thinking, and I probably never will... Why would you dare to go to him, only to be slain in the end...?"

Rose: "By reading your mind, I now know where Bison is... Once divided, two separate fates unite. This is our fate... I don't know what awaits us... And neither does he..."

Vs. Juli and Juni

Bison: "You arrived earlier than I had anticipated... Sorry, but I have another appointment... Come back later."

Rose: "Bison! You can't avoid this... You know you can't... Since the day we met, fate knew it had to end in this way..."

Bison: "Ha ha ha ha! Don't be so melodramatic! Why don't you play with them if it's a challenge you desire? You have nothing to lose... Except perhaps your life..."

Vs. M. Bison

Rose: "Did you truly believe they could defeat me? There's no escape... for either of us..."

Bison: "A rose without thorns means friendship... Come now... I should never have allowed you to grow thorns..."

Rose: "No! That obedience is what caused all this tragedy... The game is over... Let's finish this now!"

Street Fighter IV series

Pre-fight intro

  • "You're nervous, aren't you?"


"No matter how many times I attempt to read the future, the answer is always the same. Only the Fool Card can stand up to him. It is the Card of Freedom and Beginnings... The Card of Reckless Heroism. I may be able to stop him temporarily, but I simply cannot destroy him, for I hold the same power inside me that Bison has. The fate of this card lies in the hands of one man. But he cannot act, until the stars align to herald his coming. I can only protect him, guide him, offer aid in his quest to destroy Bison. This will be my last mission."


Rose: "Where... Where am I? Ah, I remember now. Bison, he... (she sees a vision of Ryu confronting Bison) I can't feel a thing! Is this what it is to be dead?"
