* NoExportForYou: Prior to the ''Samurai Shodown Anthology'' and digital re-release on [=PlayStation=] 4, ''Samurai Shodown VI'' was only released on Japanese arcades and [=PlayStation=] 2, with the latter adding more playable characters and spirit systems available.



* PromotedFanboy: Nobuhiro Watsuki, creator of popular anime and manga such as ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'', ''Manga/BusouRenkin'' and ''Manga/GunBlazeWest'', mentioned early in ''Rurouni Kenshin'' that he is hooked on the Samurai Shodown series and bought a Neo Geo CD just to play it. He continued to write ''Samurai Shodown''-related notes in subsequent releases of ''Rurouni Kenshin'' manga. In 2003, SNK hired him to design new characters for ''Samurai Shodown V''.
** Subverted by Yasuhiro Nightow, Japanese mangaka and game creator who created the anime and manga ''Manga/{{Trigun}}''. In his previous time as doujinshi artist he created a Samurai Shodown-based manga book, yet later reflected that he isn't very proud of his work for that book and requested that there be no further reprints. Ironically, the book's notoriety is what caused SNK to notice his love for the series and later lead to his job for designing Youkai Kusaregedo in Samurai Shodown V.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: As revealed in a [[http://www.polygon.com/2017/4/10/15223966/the-making-of-samurai-shodown 2017 interview]], the first ''Samurai Shodown'' was originally designed as a monster-themed BeatEmUp. Genan was the only thing carried over from this version of the game.

* * NamesTheSame: Gen-An shares his surname with [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Mai]] [[VideoGame/FatalFury Shiranui]]. Whether or not they're related is something [[FlipFlopOfGod the writers can't agree on]].

* FranchiseKiller: ''Samurai Shodown Sen'', best described as a highly stripped down [[FollowTheLeader clone]] of ''SoulCalibur''. Good luck finding a positive review.

* PortOverdosed: The original ''SamuraiShodown'' is one of the more recent games to qualify, due to SNK's near-constant stream of compilations and re-releases over the last decade.
