* Luong's personality and stances make her an AlternateCompanyEquivalent to ''[[Franchise/StreetFighter Street Fighter's]] Juri Han, a character who ironically enough was joked about as being an SNK-style design.




to:

* Kukri's usage of bandages in addition to his hood make him a dead ringer for [[Franchise/MortalKombat Ermac]]. His sand manipulation and silent tone are based on [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Gaara]], while his moveset is similar to [[VideoGame/KillerInstinct Kan-Ra]].

* According to WordOfGod, Chizuru's design was inspired by Yoko Shiraki from ''Manga/AshitaNoJoe''. Both are [[LongHairIsFeminine long-and-dark-haired]] [[{{Ojou}} high-class]] young women who either help handle or handle directly venues related to fighting: Yoko sponsors a boxing gym with her grandfather, Chizuru organized the KOF tournament more than once.

* Maxima is both an homage to the main character of the SNK BeatEmUp ''Robo Army'' and an expy of Hary Ness from the obscure fighting game ''The Fallen Angels'', whom his character designer worked on before joining SNK.

to:

* Choi Bounge's "Shakushi" MAX2 move is identical to [[OnePiece Captain Kuro's version]], all the way down to the name and the random hitboxes. According to WordOfGod, his Maniac Striker ("Cool Choi") borrows his glasses-adjusting gesture from the same character.
* In '99, Leona gains two moves that reference JojosBizarreAdventure. Her "Earring Bomb 2: Heart Attack" works like Kira Yoshikage's "Killer Queen" Stand ability, with the move's name referencing his "Bomb #2: Sheer Heart Attack" and her quote "Makete owari." resembling "Makete shine!" (an alternate Reading of his "Bomb #3: Bites the Dust" quote). Her "Grateful Dead" (S)DM drains the opponent's life force, similarly to Prosciutto's "Grateful Dead" Stand.



* Bonne Jenet is a {{pirate}}, there's the ''Bonne'', and stalks a main character (Rock Howard in ''[[VideoGame/FatalFury Mark of the Wolves]]'' and the ''Maximum Impact'' series). Yep, she seems to be SNK's matured version of [[VideoGame/MegaManLegends Tron Bonne]].

Yep, she seems to be SNK's matured version of [[VideoGame/MegaManLegends Tron Bonne]]. Considering the time of her MotW debut (1999), she could also be a nod towards OnePiece.
