* PostScriptSeason: The series was intended to end with the death of Raoh, Kenshiro's ultimate nemesis and the greatest warlord of the post-apocalyptic era. It was renewed after the end of its run, leading to the following arcs requiring a fair amount of [[AssPull rectal requisition]] to fit into the existing canon (particularly pulling out new Hokuto heirs and another Big Brother for Kenshiro).

* DisownedAdaptation: According to the ''Ore-tachi no sukina Hokuto no Ken'' anime guide, original writer Buronson and editor Nobuhiko Horie were angered over some of the insane filler content that Toei's writers were coming up with during the show's early run that clashed with the serious tone they were trying to set up with the manga. The Nanto Human Cannonball technique in particular near the end of Southern Cross arc was what triggered their outrage. As a result, they became more creatively involved with the anime to prevent it from becoming an {{ink stain adaptation}}.
