* {{Foil}}: Usually to Creator/{{Capcom}}, but at around 2015-2016, they become this to Creator/{{Konami}}. SNK was known for its shaky history, including its bankruptcy and rebirth as SNK Playmore, while Konami was a steadier company with a lot of A-Games. However, around that year, Konami came into under fire of ire by fans and other developers alike due to controversial decisions and the move to Pachinko business, abandoning the A-Grade video game businesses. On the contrary, SNK Playmore instead abandons their Pachinko venture and makes a full return to video game development to the point of returning to their old name (just SNK) and logo, and continues to improve ''The King of Fighters XIV'', which suffered lackluster reception on its earlier graphics showcase, now it's considered improving a lot and even matching Capcom's fighting juggernaut ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV''. SNK has been considered by some as 'Anti-Konami' this way.

''SNK'', an acronym for ''Shin Nihon Kikaku'' 『新日本企画』 (Japanese for "New Japan Project"), is one of the better known video game companies. Besides developing arcade games dating back to 1978, SNK is also responsible for the UsefulNotes/NeoGeo home console, as well as the short-lived Hyper Neo Geo 64 and portable NeoGeoPocket. The company's legal and trading name became SNK in 1986. It also possesses a unique story of collapse and rebirth: After things started to look bad in the beginning of 2000, SNK [[DarkestHour was forced to declare bankruptcy in 2001 and sold many of its rights to various companies]]. Eventually, with hard work and effort, its CEO, Eikichi Kawasaki, eventually [[PuttingTheBandBackTogether gathered up many of its former rights and employees]] and [[HesBack rebuilt SNK, now named SNK Playmore]]. Kawasaki was the company's largest shareholder until August 2015, when his shares (along with his wife's) were bought over by a Chinese video game company. In April 2016, SNK Playmore announced that they were changing their name back to SNK.

* FollowTheLeader - A lot of SNK's pre and early NeoGeo games were clones of what was popular at the time. Compare ''VideoGame/FinalFight'' and ''Burning Fight'', ''VideoGame/{{Xevious}}'' and ''Alpha Mission'', ''Hang-On'' and ''Riding Hero'', ''Twin Hawk'' (or, depending which way you look at it, the ''[[VideoGame/NineteenFortyTwo 19XX]]'' series) and ''Ghost Pilots''... etc.

[[JustForPun/IThoughtThatWas Has nothing to do with]] ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' (which has the Japanese name of ''Shingeki no Kyojin''), despite sharing the same initials. Fans of the video game company have taken to using the company's new name (SNK Playmore) because of the potential confusion.
