I guess it doesn't make much more sense than naming the Thai general and crime lord after a North American animal. But... at least they fixed the Vega problem. And I personally think the big tough boxer makes a better Balrog than the fancypants dancing bullfighter.
M. Bison/ Vega. His name was from a the Star Vega, which as you pointed out it was changed because north americans felt it was non threatening (even though its a name belonging to a massive ball of burning fission) and swapped with balrog which due legal concerns over mike Tyson and m. bison was then switched again.
The name Balrog has nothing to do with lord of the rings.
Still it is a quiz stated original sf2 characters so the names should go in the original Japanese order rather than the later import order.
not the most well known, not of highest selling game. Original. That means first.
If the quiz was original avengers you wouldn't have captain America in it. Even though he is one of the best known avengers characters.
As for balrog, I don't think that a obscure character from an old English novel would have had that much influence on a Japanese software engineer. Admitedly I could be wrong, but I am pretty sure its not. At least it has not been mentioned as the basis for the name on any of the major sf2 websites or magazines I have seen/read.
The boss lineup above is the original lineup for most of the world. Get over it.
In the original Lord of the Rings, Arwen helps Frodo after amon sul not glorfindel
and in the original Hobbit, Azog is killed by Thorin in the battle of the five armies instead of being killed at Moria by Dain.
because that's what happened in the movies and most of the world have seen the movie rather than read the books.
And Run DMC must the original artists of the song walk this way.
According to the Cambrigde English Dictionnary :
Rogue : a person, organization, or country that does not behave in the usual or acceptable way.
Government stooge, upon hearing of Guile's plan to storm Bison's compound: "Colonel, have you lost your mind?!"
Guile: "No, you've lost your balls."
