* In ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Maximum Impact 2'', Rock Howard's story mode has him getting into a fight with Mai Shiranui after he calls her "Oba-san" ("Auntie"). He's actually trying to be polite and treat her like family[[note]]Terry Bogard is his surrogate father, Mai is dating Terry's brother Andy, so Rock is being nice and treating her like an aunt even though she and Andy aren't married yet[[/note]]; obviously she doesn't see it that way or else doesn't know all the details, since she just sees a punk calling her old and flips her lid.

Then when he forgets to put a "-san", she beats him again, reminding him that she ''is'' an oba-han and thus deserves respect.

Chiyo is generally called "Chiyo-baa-sama.".
