** The tension when Rugal regards the Fatal Fury team in ''[='94=]'' is screwed by him referring to their enemies as "Geese and Klauser." RougeAnglesOfSatin applies here, but yeah.

** 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://www.vgmuseum.com/end/neogeo/b/kof2kart-24.png which ended up rendering them as something akin to a horrid Botox disaster.]]
*** It's ''supposed'' to be a stock comedic reaction, but it's not hard to argue where some might see it as overblown.



** 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.

* ''The King of Fighters XIV'':
** In XIV, the leader of the "Villain Team", Xanadu is one HELL of a FashionVictimVillain. It's impossible to take him seriously with his FacialMarkings, his literally blue beard...

** Lucky Glauber of the American Sports Team has possibly one of the most hilarious [[DeathCryEcho death cry echoes]] that you'll ever hear in a fighting game and that it pretty much negates the impact of his own defeat from within a fight.

* Then we come to ''2000''. "You can't resist me! I'll beat you all like a drum!" as said by Clone Zero. It doesn't help that any dramatic or scary shot of him is ruined by his utterly humourously silly Pringles moustache, hence the name "[[FanNickname Commander Pringles]]."

* Finally, we cut to ''2001''. Igniz is [[SNKBoss a hard mofo]] (perhaps the Creator/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.

* 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]].

* 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. This is compounded with the subsequent spelling error: "Rugal '''B'''efeated"

*** For many, it's not ''that'' narmy (especially since it's only said once before the [[ThePowerOfRock "guitar"]] in [[AwesomeMusic/{{SNK}} "Guitar, Omega, and Rugal"]] kicks in). Also, seeing as ''KOF '95'' predates ''JSR'', they stole the idea from ''him''.

* 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 Terry 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 Terry just said that.

* The same takes place in ''99'', if you defeat Krizalid with the Psycho Soldiers team (you have to win with Kensou to trigger this scene). 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...?]]
* [[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 [[Narm/HouseOfTheDead "Suffer like G did?"]]
* Then we have ''[='99=]''. Once Krizalid goes down, NESTS decide to kill him by [[DroppedABridgeOnHim dropping a rock on him]]. The dramatic tension would have been a real surprise hit... had they not had an image of Krizalid looking less shocked at his death and more smiling like a junkie who'd just hit up a shot. The face is just HILARIOUS when he pulls it off. [[http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w100/MightyKombat/kof99hero-15.gif Here, check it out and tell me that doesn't look goofy.]]

** We cannot forget this one! One of Clone Zero's attacks apparently aims to make him appear BadAss by having him blow the opponent away by the mere undulation of his cloak. Except that he first turns around, and instead looks as if he's... [[{{Fartillery}} farting]]. Cue immature lulz from the players.

*** Not even dialogue really but the arranged version of Rugal's ''[='95=]'' theme has some suitably {{badass}} church bell chimes... and then the badassery is wiped out by some guy shouting "UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT OF LOVE!"...
