When selecting which version you want to play as, hold Start and select "SUPER TURBO". Release Start then select you character. Now, if you select Chun-Li, E.Honda, or Vega, they have the ability to "Store" special moves and Super Combos. For example, do the super motion for Chun-Li's Senretsukyaku partially (Charge Back for 2 seconds, Forward, Back, then hold Forward without pressing K). Now the move is stored. Next time you press a Kick button, the Senretsukyaku will come out instantly.
Fight Shin Akuma
Select a Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo character in Arcade mode, then beat the game without losing any rounds or using any continues. The difficulty setting does not matter. When you reach M. Bison, Shin Akuma will come in just as the match is about to start and do the raging demon on M. Bison, and you will proceed to fight Shin Akuma instead. Shin Akuma is much faster than regular Akuma, inflicts more damage, and can perform two air fireballs instead of one.
Fight Q in SF3TS Arcade Mode
This works on any difficulty. To fight Q, play a game and don't lose a single match. At the 8th match after defeating your opponent, Q's will appear on screen, and you'll fight him in the 9th round.
Selecting the 13th costume in SF3TS
There is a 13th costume for each character. Select your character by pressing Square + Circle + R1.
Skip over characters in HSF2 Arcade mode
While playing arcade mode, once you know who your next opponent is, use the second controller to challenge. Have the second player be the fighter you were about to fight before. Defeat him/her and return to the one player game. That character will be eliminated from the opponents list in Arcade mode and you will move on to the next person. This can be done for all characters except Bison. This secret can be helpful in trying to fight Shin Akuma.
