** The fact that no matter how many times [[ItWasHisSled the tournament was run/interupted by the]] MonsterOfTheWeek, no one has even considered to ban the tournament, [[StupidityIsTheOnlyOption even though it would usually foil whatever plan the Big Bad had.]] It also doesn't help that the winner of [[VideoGame/FatalFury the original KOF]] got kidnapped.

** 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"

** Before your team fights the true form of Krizalid, he tells the team that he'll use their data for clones, and tells them to look at a set of monitors in case they don't believe him. Everyone who looks comments about the multiple Kyo's instantly act as if it was the real deal, even if they're right next to Kyo-1/2, Kyo himself, who points out that he has clones in his win quote, and Kyo-1/2 themselves, even though Krizalid just talked about clones.



** 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]]."

** 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"]] (or even [[spoiler:"Old Man"]], considering the kind of character Kyo is) would've been more than enough, Kyo; what likely sounds decent in the original Japanese is pure Narm in English.

** It should be telling that one of the marketed features of ''[=MI2=]'' was the option to ''switch to the original Japanese voices''.

* ''R-2'' is a cartoony adaptation of '''98'' that features a story mode with several misspellings and a very enthusiastic narrator.
** "Your sworn enemy, the evil Rugal: Weapons dealer. ''c''loner. ''Bad dude!''"
** Rugal's Black Noah battleship is always mistranslated as "Blak Noia". They also manage to swap the r and l on his name in one line.
** One of Kyo's win quotes: "To be blunt: you stin''c''!"
** In most episodes, the Custom Hero exclaims "Holy black hole! ...I feel like a wet noodle!" when told of the InterfaceScrew for the next fights.
** When fought as an boss in Making Mode, Yuri keeps shouting "Gunga Lunga!", much to the Custom Hero's confusion.
** After one chapter, the Custom Hero "holds back tears and screams" that even powerful fighters can be defeated if they lack virtue. This is after fighting a boss who went around yelling about how much karate rules.

** 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...
