* Benimaru Nikaido was modeled after [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Jean-Pierre Polnareff]], in terms of appearance and personality. He is even jokingly called Polnareff by the dev team.

** 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."

* Kusanagi, the Kyo clone, references Domon Kasshu from ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'' with his one of his super moves ("Ore no Kobushi wa Makka ni moero!" = "This fist of mine is burning red!").

** One of her DMs (especially its SDM version) has her do multiple kicks, then steps onto her opponent's head and stomps their head three times. It's pretty much [[Videogame/StreetFighterEX Vulcano Rosso's]] Accellerando and Tameiki no Hashi Super Combos combined.

Added DiffLines:

** The character is something of a mid-[[TheNineties '90s]] time capsule, at least in Japan. Hiei from ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' and ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'' were a hit, so he debuted with the former's self-harming black flames and Trowa Barton's hairdo from the latter. When ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' swept the country, he got his [[UnstoppableRage Riot of the Blood]] form with the same eyes and mannerisms as the berserk Eva 01.

Added DiffLines:

** Not just only that, but there is also another parallel with Star Wars. While Original Zero [[LukeIAmYourFather is not the protagonist's father]], but [[{{Expy}} he is like]] Darth Vader in that he is also a black clad, BadassCape wearing NobleDemon AntiVillain who serves as the {{Big Bad}}'s (Igniz in Zero's case) [[TheDragon chief operative]].

* Shun'ei, the fourth protagonist of the series, has his Climax being a RapidFireFisticuffs by another being[=/=]supernatural power accompanied with ''[[{{Kiai}} "DORARARARARARA!!!"]]'', similar to the ''fourth'' protagonist of ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'', Josuke Higashikata. His other DM is also similar to [[Anime/GaoGaiGar Heaven and Hell]] in appearance.

** Iori design was partially inspired by Creator/YasuhiroNightow designs, and, if anyone has read ''Manga/{{Trigun}}'' before, can definitely see his design was inspired by Legato Bluesummers.
