* AdaptationalHeroism: Fo Fai in TheAnimeOfTheGame, in which in the games, he is a seemingly friendly old man and traveling magician who is actually a SerialKiller who would gladly kill anyone ForTheEvulz. While the OVA did follow the first part of Fo Fai's personality, it had downplayed the second part as he is seen with the other Toshinden fighters in the big fight against the Secret Society. Though granted, it was highly implied that he had only did it [[EnemyMine just to get back at the Secret Society for trying to attack him earlier in the OVA]].
** Eiji and Kayin are technically this as well, since while Eiji is the franchise's [[TheProtagonist main protagonist]] and Kayin is his [[HeterosexualLifePartners best friend]] and [[TheRival rival]], the two of them do have their own personality flaws from within the games themselves (Eiji being a JerkWithAHeartOfGold and Kayin being a KnightInSourArmor), thus both Eiji and Kayin are substantially nicer and more heroic in the OVA. And while the second part of the OVA did state that the reason of why the other Toshinden fighters had pulled a BigDamnHeroes and help aided Eiji, Kayin, Sofia, and Tracy was because they had just wanted to get back at the Secret Society. Namely how the OVA did try to point out that the Toshinden fighters are for the most part acquaintances than allies. Though that being said Eiji did help Rungo (getting his battered body back to his family to take care of him) & Sonia (seeking her out to warn her about the Organization that is coming after the Toshinden fighters.)
* AdaptationalModesty: Sonia seems to play this really straight at first in TheAnimeOfTheGame when we first see her greeting Eiji in her debut scene wearing a rather large shirt that covers most of her body. Though this gets subverted when she gets a brief full frontal nudity scene in the shower then when she gets mind controlled and tries to attack Eiji she is seen in her usual MsFanservice attire.
** Ellis on the other hand plays this straight in the OVA as she looks even younger and is flat-chested unlike how she was in the Games.

Added DiffLines:

* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: Surprisingly flat out averted in the English voice work in Battle Arena Toshinden Remix's story mode in which all Asian & European characters have their respective region's accents. Granted the accents were generally not well received but still.
** The English Dub of TheAnimeOfTheGame did play this straight for the most part aside from Mondo who did have a Japanese accent there but a tad bit lighter than the one he had in Remix's story mode.

Added DiffLines:

* DressedLikeADominatrix: In the first game, Sofia wears a black leather leotard, thigh-high high-heeled boots, opera gloves, a choker, and a ponytail. She wields a whip. The ''VideoGame/SoulSeries'' is a spiritual successor to ''Battle Arena Toshinden'', so the similarities aren't coincidental.

** Basically half of the third game's cast was this to the other half, discounting Sho and Naru.



*** Uranus wins the tournament, having slain all of her opposition. As she kills off Master, she takes on as the next "Master", and moves in on planning on taking over the everyday world.

The series also has a 2D [[{{Game Boy}} Game Boy port]]. Unlike [[PortingDisaster other fighting game ports was released on the Game Boy]], it's [[PolishedPort actually quite good and entertaining]]. It includes all the 8 playable characters from the first game and 4 bosses (Gaia, Gaia II, Sho, and Uranus). [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome The background music is also outstanding to say the least]]. One weird fact that distinguish it from other 2D fighting games is that keeps its ''Ring Out'' feature from the 3D games, but it's made in such a way it doesn't break the game balance (you've a 3 points ''Ring Out'' meter; until it gets emptied you don't fall). If you have time in your hands, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8pxUyuwrW4 give it a look,]] it's worth it.
