Fei Long is a tribute to the Kung Fu movie legend Bruce Lee. Not only do the two look alike and come from the same city, Fei Long also lets out similar battle cries to Lee, and is just as furious and fast a fighter. Also, feilong is Chinese (specifically Cantonese, Hong Kong's primary dialect) for "flying dragon", as well as a type of kick; Bruce Lee's Chinese screen name was 李 小龍 (Lee Siu-Long) or "little dragon." The background of Fei Long's fighting venue is based on the Tiger Balm Garden in Hong Kong.
In Fei Long's ending in Super Street Fighter II and Super Street Fighter II Turbo, a movie director approaches Fei Long and tries to convince him into returning to make one more movie, but Fei Long refuses. In the English version, he says that "there could never be another legend like the great one and his son", which has been interpreted by many fans to mean Bruce Lee and his son Brandon who died shortly before Super Street Fighter II was released. This reference is not present in the Japanese version.
A youthful and talented action movie star, Fei Long is the master of Hitenryu Kung Fu. While he fought on the streets to sharpen his skills, he caught the eye of a movie director, who got him into the big times and made him an international sensation. He made a string of action movies until he participated in the second World Warrior tournament. He realized that he preferred the real thing to the staged, choreographed fight scenes in his movies, and gave up his career and disappeared into the streets.
