The Union Station is a stage in Street Fighter V.
Description[edit | edit source]
The battle takes place in the ticket hall of a busy train station in central London.
The left and right edges of the stage can cause special cinematic knockouts if the final blow is landed at the corners. On the left side, the character is thrown through the men's bathroom wall where they will be stuck halfway through.
On the right side, the character is thrown into a British guard station, knocking the trombone player off of his feet. The musician's Queen's Guard Bearskin Hat pops off of his head and falls on top of the character. The character stands upright with the hat on their head, before collapsing on their knees and falling to the ground. Should another round begin afterwards, the character will start the round with the hat on their head, which can be knocked off during the fight.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The steam engine in the background of the stage is a LB&SCR E2 class tank locomotive. With its shared type and very similar livery, it appears to be a reference to the well-known British children's book and television character Thomas the Tank Engine.
- The station's architecture appears to be modeled on that of the King's Cross and St. Pancras International railway stations in Central London. Additionally, the station clock in the middle of the stage is modelled after the one outside London Victoria station, aka "Little Ben".
- A sign for Colombian Roastmasters and Frozen Dreams, locations from the Dead Rising series, appear as an easter egg in a tunnel. They are only visible during an environment KO on the far right side of the stage, or at certain camera angles during character intros at the start of the fight.
- The departures/arrivals board lists the cities/towns Birmingham, Carlisle, Dover, Oxford, Newcastle [upon Tyne], Manchester, Norwich, Penzance, Portsmouth and York (in England); Dundee, Edinburgh, Elgin and Glasgow (in Scotland); and Carmarthen and Holyhead (in Wales). Except for Elgin, these all have rail stations with direct links to various London stations.
