Also as stage cameo in various KOF games like ''XI'', ''[='=]94 [=ReBout=]'', ''Maximum Impact 2'' and both Pachinko games.

* {{Moe}}: The original game artwork was made in this style, also with SuperDeformed sprites, one of the first media that made this before being a fad in the TurnOfTheMillenium. Also, being more a {{homage}} than a {{sequel}}, ''Athena: Full Throttle'' mantained this kind of styles in artwork and game sprites too.
* MsFanservice[=/=]{{Stripperiffic}}: Fighting monsters and demons with just a red bikini is enough reason to get these tropes. ALso Helene, a RoseHairedSweetie version of her, but also wears a bikini (a white one.)
