* Lucky Glauber's prototype design and fighting style were based on the character Hakim in the martial arts film, ''Film/GameOfDeath''. His later design might come from ''Dunk Dream''/''Street Hoop''/''Street Slam'', a sports game for the UsefulNotes/NeoGeo made by Data East.

* Mui Mui resembles the girl on the neon casino sign in Kim Dong Hwan's stage in ''[[VideoGame/FatalFury Garou: Mark of the Wolves]]''. This might explain why her origins lie in a pachislot game that came out five years after ''Garou''.

*** She also pinches various moves from the Shotoclones: in ''[='96=]'', she gains the Tatsumaki Senpukyaku; in ''[='97=]'', Sakura's Midare Zakura (multiple uppercut Super); in ''[='98=]'', the Shin Shouryuken (EX Yuri only); in ''2001'', the Shun Goku Satsu (with a 1/8 chance to inflict extra damage and copy Akuma's back-turning pose); in ''2002: Unlimited Match'', Ryu's Jodan Sokuto Geri ("Donkey Kick"); in ''2003'', the Denjin Hadoken (Ryu's chargeable electric fireball); and in ''XIII'', Akuma's Demon Flip. From ''2002''-''XI'', she also borrows Chun-Li's vertical split kick; however, she gained her normal rushing uppercut (Yuri Chou Upper) as early as ''[='95=]'', [[OlderThanTheyThink one year before Sakura made it famous]].

** Shinkuu Katategoma, Handou Sandangeri, and Genei Hurricane moves are inspired by ''Hurricane Polymar''. ([[HilariousInHindsight Funnily enough]], Creator/KunihikoYasui, the seiyuu of TheRival to Benimaru's best bud [i.e. Iori Yagami], is Polymar in ''[[VideoGame/TatsunokoVsCapcom Tatsunoko vs. Capcom]]''.)
** Other attacks have their namesakes in various anime and manga, including the Benimaru Collider/Corridor (''Anime/{{Gunbuster}}''), Elec-Trigger (''Super Robot Red Baron''), Flying Drill and Raijinken (''Anime/NeoHumanCasshern''), and Iai Geri (''Kako Teito: Ore wa Shubei!''). (Creator/DaisukeOno, the seiyuu of Nameless, voices Casshern in ''Tatsunoko vs. Capcom''. See a trend here?)

* K9999 is pretty much [[Manga/{{Akira}} Tetsuo]] with some Kusanagi DNA thrown in. He goes as far has having the same seiyuu, Creator/NozomuSasaki. This came full circle at a point, when Tetsuo's rival was [[Manga/{{Akira}} Kusanagi]], voiced by [[Creator/MitsuoIwata Kaneda's seiyuu]], followed by them yelling at each other in their shared intro. Bear in mind [[Manga/{{Akira}} where the quotes for this intro came]]. He indeed seems to have gone too far, as in ''[[UpdatedReRelease The King of Fighters 2002: Unlimited Match]]'' he has been [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute replaced]] by a very similar character called "Nameless."
