* Hein is pretty much what happens when you combine [[Manga/BlackButler Claude Faustus]] and [[Manga/SakamotoDesuGa Sakamoto]]. He has Sakamoto's appearance and constant air of coolness and mystery surrounding him, with Claude's status as a BattleButler for an evil blond and dark powers.

** Whip's round entry quote when entering as the second or third team member is "Kakugo wa ii? Watashi wa dekiteru." ("Are you prepared? I am."), referencing one of [[JojosBizarreAdventure Bruno Buccellati's]] catchphrases.



** One of her DMs (especially its SDM version) has her do multiple kicks, then steps onto her opponent's head and stomps their head 3 times. It's pretty much [[Videogame/StreetFighterEX Vulcano Rosso's]] 2 Super Combos combined.
* Nelson's attacks and background about getting cybernetic implants in his arm so he can box again are based on [[VideoGame/KillerInstinct TJ Combo]].

* Nelson's attacks and background about getting use of a cybernetic implants in his arm so he can box again are based on may be a nod towards [[VideoGame/KillerInstinct TJ Combo]]. Unlike Combo, who resorted to titanium implants to keep his title and was banned from the professional boxing circuit when they were discovered, Nelson was forced to use his to be able to box at all.

* Many of Clark's moves are borrowed from ''Manga/{{Kinnikuman}}'': '96-XI's Napalm Stretch (Kinniku Ataru), '96-'02's Clark Spark (Muscle Spark, Kinnikuman), '03-XI's Clark Special (Robin Special, Robin Mask) and XIV's Climax move (Big Ben Edge, [[Anime/UltimateMuscle Kevin Mask]]).

** The upper portion of his new (if not somewhat goofy-looking) stance in ''XIII'' seems to be taken from [[Manga/BakiTheGrappler Doppo Orochi]]. His Biruto Appa/Built Upper Neo MAX from the same game ends with a brutal chop similar to Akuma's ''[[VideoGame/SNKVsCapcom Capcom vs. SNK]]''-exclusive [[DeathFromAbove Misogi]].
