* {{Expy}}: While not ''quite'' the same in terms of gameplay, he visually as well as storyline-wise (somewhat) serves as the "[[Franchise/StreetFighter Ryu]]" of the game



* {{Hunk}}: He's big, beefy and beautiful.

* {{Expy}}: Possibly of Gao, an evil bald monk from the second season of the anime, much like Vanessa and Nyon.he also resembles famous Hong Kong movie star Gordon Liu who portrayed the legendary monk San Te in The 36th Chamber of Shaolin a.k.a Master Killer.

* {{Expy}}: Vanessa is ''incredibly'' similar to Nyon, a villain who only appeared in the second season of the anime several years before Vanessa was introduced in ''4'' also her brown skin and white hair make her look like Storm from ''X-Men'' .

* {{Expy}}: Of [[Wrestling/ReyMysterioJR Rey Mysterio]]. Also, his name could come from Japanese wrestler [[Wrestling/TakuyaSugi El Blazer]], but given that he and the videogame debuted the name more or less at the same time, it's unknown who copied who.

* {{Expy}}: Seems to be based on [[CallingTheOldManOut Jin Kazama]]. This is most likely due to sharing the same initials (JK), both having villainous traits as well as using Karate as their fighting style of choice.

* {{Expy}}: Clearly based on Arab-themed wrestler {{Wrestling/Sabu}} from both his name and appearance. Though American, Sabu had been with Japanese promotion FMW since the mid-80s and was one of its biggest stars by the time of the first Virtua Fighter game. As he was still obscure in the US, they may have been concerned that people would not see the reference and think Siba was intended as a terrorist character. By the time Fighters Megamix came out, Sabu had returned to the US and established himself as a star in ECW and WCW, thus making the reference more obvious to people. and a likely justification for his inclusion in the game.

* {{Expy}}: Is very reminiscent of ''VideoGame/FinalFight'' and ''[[Franchise/StreetFighter Street Fighter's]]'' Rolento with a little El Gado and Holly Wood.

* MexicansLoveSpeedyGonzales: Virtua Fighter has long been popular in arcades in the Middle East, and many Youtubers from those countries have commented that they really like Siba and wish he had been in the game, noting both his badass mercenary appearance and the general rarity of Arab characters in fighting games. In particular, Siba is noted as one of the few Arab characters in games who is not explicitly identified as a villain.
* WorkingTitle: Siba's name in development is "Majido", which was a Japanese attempt at the Arabic name "Majid". He is still named this when playing as him via cheat codes in the first game.

* {{Badass}}: Not only did he win the third tournament, but he made it to the finals in the subsequent tournament and wrecked Dural when she interfered with the match. Technically speaking, Kage-Maru has the best tournament standings of the entire cast.

* TheGreatestStyle: Lau's style of Koen-ken is considered a "total offensive package" with both speed and power. It's to learn the secrets of this technique that Lei-Fei betrayed his order of Monks, and later betrayed and tried to kill Lau himself. After this betrayal, Lau has basically accepted that this style is now doomed to die with him.
