** Mongolia - Maxima, with one of his normal moves being a Mongolian Chop. It's from Japanese {{Mugen}} community where they call him such due to parody videos involving him doing that move a lot.

** Firstly, there's Rugal's "Rugalspin" (Dead End Screamer DM, 1998 only). This owes a lot from {{MUGEN}}.



** Also in ''XIV'', the characters from SNK's pachislot games like Muimui, Love Heart and Alice.



** And don't forget about Creator/MotokoKumai, while sometimes voicing the BrattyHalfPint or the AnnoyingYoungerSibling, has voiced {{Orochi}}. [[FridgeHorror Think about it]].

** King's Surprise Rose super move from ''Art of Fighting 2'' was her original DM in ''[='94=]'' but was scrapped for some reason. King's designer then came up with the Illusion Dance DM and it was well received. It was turned back into a DM in ''2002: Unlimited Match''.
** Ralf (and presumably Clark) was supposed to have a moveset revolving around grenades back in his ''KOF'' debut as a ShoutOut to ''Ikari Warriors''. This was scrapped due to a possible case of [[GameBreaker game breaking mechanics]]. Averted in ''XII'', which gives him explosives in addition to most of his trademark moves.

** Originally, Chang and Choi were going to be paired up with another dangerous criminal to from the "Fugitive Team". Kim was a last-minute addition, thus setting up the whole "rehabilitation" plot. [[RecycledForSequel This concept would be revisited]] for XIV, with Chang and Choi teaming with Xanadu to form the Villains team.

* DoingItForTheArt: SNK Playmore's decision to stick to the traditional means of sprite creation (dot art, or "pixel-by-pixel") for ''The King of Fighters XII'' and ''XIII'' over doing cel-based 2D animation (like ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' does) or fully 3D graphics (as ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'' did). Since ''XII'' and ''XIII'' are HD games, they needed sprites that would be reasonably sized at [=720p=], which required a ''lot'' of work (they estimated about a year's worth of work for every character's animation set). However come ''XIV'' they adopted the TwoAndAHalfD approach ''Street Fighter IV'' uses. Still, commendable effort to stick to such a traditional means of sprite creation at a time where it was becoming increasingly infeasible (both due to the advancement in display resolution requiring larger and more detail-heavy sprites and the diminishing number of talented artists who could still ''do'' that kind of work).

* DevelopmentGag: May not even have been intentional. Prior to creating Kyo Kusanagi, SNK had drafted his character as "Syo Kirishima", a more archetypal fighting game protagonist. While this was eventually dropped in favor of Kyo, Syo showed up a couple of times in the NESTS arc as a special Striker character. During those appearances, he was voiced by the aforementioned Mitsuo Iwata. Come ''KOF 2002'', Iwata would be voicing Kusanagi, who is a throwback Kyo clone complete with his ''[='95=]'' moveset.
