There is also evidence of a long deserted plan for a [[http://www.mmcafe.com/archive/news35.htm Toshinden prequel,]] through the pictures found in ''Toshinden Card Quest'', now long known as ''Toshinden Next''. As it stands, ''Next'' was supposed to have delved deeper into the affairs of the four executives of the ''Toshinden'' games, being Gaia, Cupido, Uranus, and Chaos, before what would lead into Gaia's mutiny, and as well into supporting characters mentioned and hinted to in the main series, with the Secret Society's own influences affecting them all as well.

In 2009, the series had gotten a {{spiritual successor}} for the Nintendo Wii in the form of ''War Budokai'' (often called "''Toshinden Wii''" by publications), a weapons-based arena fighter with heavy anime influences which also incorporate skills such as {{summon magic}}.

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.

* ShoutOut: In ''Toshinden 2'', Chaos had some secret moves via {{some dexterity required}} commands that are blatant references to other fighting games, usually something made by Creator/{{SNK}} (the specific special moves that Chaos does includes [[VideoGame/FatalFury Terry Bogard]]'s Power Geyser, [[VideoGame/ArtOfFighting Ryo Sakazaki]]'s Haoh Shoko Ken, [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Kyo Kusanagi]]'s Serpent Wave, and [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Iori Yagami]]'s Dark Thrust).
** As a more blatant example, selecting one of Adam's alternate costumes in ''Toshinden 3'' gives him a human, [[Franchise/StreetFighter Zangief-like]] head.

* KillerApp: Seen as this when it first came out, though the series later fell into decline. ''GamePlayersMagazine'' promoted it as the "Best Brawler EVER!" on one cover, giving it 98% (the only other games that were previously given this score were ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' and the SNES port of ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Super Street Fighter II]]''), over ''Virtua Fighter'' and ''Tekken'', to whom it was a major competitor. This became {{hilarious in hindsight}} once the other series came to far surpass it, as ''Toshinden'' is nowadays considered a joke.



* ManualMisprint: ''Toshinden 2'''s manual printed Eiji's movelist twice, pushing the other characters' lists back two pages, but leaving out Chaos.
* NamesTheSame: [[GunsAkimbo This Vermilion]] [[AxCrazy is]] [[PsychoForHire definitely]] [[EvilLaugh not]] [[FourEyesZeroSoul related to]] [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Noel Vermilion]].



** Eiji and Kayin even ''do'' look like Ryu and Ken with swords, to boot.
