** Speaking of ''2000'', during the Art of Fighting team's ending, Takuma saves King from the [[KillSat Zero Cannon]]. He then reveals that he wants King to carry Ryo's baby... while the revelation is shocking enough, the players were more bowled over by Ryo and Robert's faces of surprise, [[http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w100/MightyKombat/kof2kart-24.gif which ended up rendering them as something akin to a horrid Botox disaster.]]

** The Yagami Team's ending has Iori going TotallyRadical and telling Ramon that "a [[{{Noob}} nub]] like you [him]" can't win against him. He then calls Ramon a [[http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=noodnik "noodnik."]] Wow, Iori. You might walk the walk (and fight like a wild beast), but you most certainly ''can't'' talk the talk.

** In the Japan Team ending, while Igniz is going on his tirade about being unworthy of godhood, Kyo takes the opportunity to rub the defeat in his face. Igniz responds [[SarcasmMode in a most grandiloquent manner]]: "Insolence! Put a sock in it!"

** In the same vein of the Art of Fighting Team ending in ''2000'', there is the Women Fighters Team ending here, which is a call back to the team's ''99'' ending. If Ryo and Robert's reactions to Takuma wanting King to bear his grandson were over-the-top, [[http://www.vgmuseum.com/end/neogeo/c/kof2k1fem-38.png just look at her and Mai]] reacting to Hinako slapping Xiangfei's restaurant bill on them. Nona absolutely ''destroyed'' them in that picture.

* Then there's ''[='96=]''. Beat [[SNKBoss Goenitz]] with anyone else and he dies proclaiming "I am being called away to heaven..." Beat him with the ''Fatal Fury'' gang, and when Joe accuses him of running away, Goenitz actually shouts "No, I'm not, I'm dying you idiot!" Thus he goes from calm religious zealot to a guy who acted like he can't believe Joe just said that.

* The same takes place in ''99'', if you defeat Krizalid with the Psycho Soldiers team. When the team is escaping, Athena's reply to the NESTS announcer proclaiming the superiority of the group is... "Well, knock me down and call me Pocahontas!" [[FlatWhat Wha...?]]

** It's even worse when you play as Team Japan (Kyo, Benimaru and Daimon). [[spoiler:Having Kyo refer to his BrainwashedAndCrazy father as "Papa-san" ''in the English translation'' smacks of BabyTalk (which would've been a little more believable if Kyo was a KidHero, but he's at least ''in his late teens'' and has very rough speech patterns) and '''horribly''' ruins what should've been a very emotional IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight.]] A simple [[spoiler: "Dad"]] or [[spoiler: "Father"]] would've been more than enough, Kyo; what likely sounds decent in the original Japanese is pure Narm in English.

Thanks to Creator/{{SNK}}'s trademark "[[BlindIdiotTranslation Dodgy English]]", ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' has had a veritable effton of Narmy moments. For example:

** Most winquotes are hilarious stuff, but Joe Higashi's "ALL OF YOU ARE JUST BIG!" (said to the US Sports Team) is probably the cheesiest.

* [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu Beat]] {{Orochi}} in ''[='97=]'', and watch as the dramatic tension crumbles as he announces "Continue this way of living and you'll destroy yourselves?"... in the same form of question as the infamous [[VideoGame/HouseOfTheDead "Suffer like G did?"]]

* Finally, we cut to ''2001''. Igniz is [[SNKBoss a hard mofo]] (perhaps the NorioWakamoto voice helps) but if you're looking for some Narm to heal your wounds after constant use of continues on him, then be prepared to giggle as he asks in pain: "Is this the end of lovable Igniz?" Ironic considering the only emotion we had for him was seething hatred... or adoration. So maybe he IS right. He IS lovable.

Added DiffLines:

* In KOF 2002, K' vs Kula intro is hilarious because of how K's voice which is usually deep (not baritone, but pretty manly) [[LarynxDissonance cracks up]].

---> '''Foxy''':"Boku-chan de wa ano ko ni katenai wa yo/This [[UnderestimatingBadassery little boy]] can't win against this girl"
---> '''K'''':Tsubusozu kora!/[[PreAssKickingOneLiner I'll crush you!]]

* Whenever you beat Rugal in ''[='95=]'' with an edited team, he goes out with an indignant tirade. This tirade is made more comical with his scream of "I'll be back... YOU JERKS!", making him sound less like an evil BloodKnight and more like a whiny schoolkid who's just had his lollipop stolen by bullies.
** The above is compounded with the subsequent spelling error: "Rugal '''B'''efeated"

*** I guess even Rugal won't deny ''VideoGame/JetSetRadio'' is [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic awesome]].
