Apparently he was one of the earliest characters and was conceived as a Ninja/Matador. Okay, i guess i get that.
I just don't quite get the name. That's why i looked up Spanish surnames with those letters.

Maybe even バーグ. I wonder if the name was thought of when the original design looked like it would fit in The King of Dragons or those other fantasy beat-em-ups that Capcom made around that time.

So Balrog is: バルログ
If it were Barg it'd be: バルグ ?

I doubt the Barg thing, I checked the Japanese for Street Fighter Balrog with the stage from Strider and they both had the same katakana.

To clear up the name confusion for those who don't know,

JAPAN: Mike Bison USA: Balrog

JAPAN: Balrog USA: Vega

JAPAN: Vega USA: M. Bison

COA thought Vega was too weak a name for the final boss. Also, they wanted to remove the Mike Tyson reference.

As for the name Balrog, i suspect it's an incorrect romanization of "Barg" which is a Spanish surname. I don't think they would've named a Spanish cage fighter after a LOTR monster but you never know.

Nope. Capcom later revealed they're completely separate characters. Balrog is a violent thug while Mike is a friendlier and cool dude.
Jan 10, 2023, 1:05 PM
That would make sense, since he's M(ike) Bison in Japan.

Wasn’t Mike confirmed to be Barlog later on?
