Street Fighter II

Mike Tyson is purportedly the model for the Street Figher II character Balrog, who is not coincidentally, an imposing African-American heavyweight boxer with a penchant for illegal moves.  In the Japanese versions of Street Fighter titles Balrog appears in, his name is actually M. Bison, with the dictator named Vega and the clawed fighter named Balrog.  These names were most likely flipped in an effort to disassociate the boxer’s identity from Tyson’s when the games were released in the west.
