** Akira Kazama gets her name, kung fu fighting style, and love of motorcycles from a character in ''Manga/Kenji''.
** Gan is basically Gorilla-Imo from ''Manga/DokonjoGaeru'' crossed with a friend of Akira's from ''Manga/Kenji''.
** Tiffany's hairdo and [[{{Engrish}} manner of speech]] is very similar to Swan White's in ''Anime/GaoGaiGar''. Supposedly, the creators were big on the show, which is also why Batsu and Hinata have Guy and Mikoto's voices.

''Manga/{{Kenji}}''. Being a kung fu manga, it is also why she fights in that style.

* CanonImmigrant: Much like Karin and Evil Ryu in ''Franchise/StreetFighter'', Hayato Nekketsu was an original character in a manga spin-off (a short for a mook, ''Shiritsu Justice Gakuen Gaiden'') who got added to the games. But unlike those two, he is not owned by Capcom, making him partly a GuestFighter. He appears in at least one other work by his creator, Kazuhiko Shimamoto.

* ShoutOut: Helmetless Akira's team-up attack in the original game is copied from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'''s infamous episode "Both of You, Dance Like You Want to Win!" (you know, the one where Shinji and Asuka take learning teamwork so far that he even dresses up as her).
** Natsu's surname, Ayuhara, may be one to Kozue Ayuhara, the protagonist of ''Manga/AttackNumberOne'' (conversely, volleyball being the sport Natsu practices).

* ShoutOut: The game itself is a send-up to old fashioned fighting high school mangas. Plenty of other references abound, mostly also to older mangas.
** Natsu's surname, Ayuhara, is from Kozue Ayuhara, the protagonist of ''Manga/AttackNumberOne'' (conversely, volleyball being the sport Natsu practices).
** Shoma's absurd baseball moves come from the manga, ''Samurai Giants''.

* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Boman actually does a [[{{Kinnikuman}} Kinniku Buster]] in his Team-Up Attack. That aside, most grapples are wrestling-inspired; even little Momo can bust out a piledriver!

The games are rather obscure, so there is not likely to be a sequel any time soon. Despite that though Capcom doesn't seem to have forgotten about it though as characters can be seen in the CapcomVSWhatever games (namely ''[[VideoGame/CapcomVsSNK2MarkOfTheMillennium Capcom vs. SNK 2]]'', ''VideoGame/NamcoXCapcom'', ''VideoGame/TatsunokoVsCapcom'' and ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone''). However, in 2012, the [=PlayStation=] version of ''United By Fate'' [[http://andriasang.com/con02g/rival_schools_psn/ was re-released as part of Sony's PSN Classics]] program in Japan and then in 2016 a couple of characters cameoed in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV'', leaving hope that the series might not be finished just yet...

* {{Crossover}}: There are numerous references to ''Street Fighter'' in ''Rival Schools'', most notably Sakura's inclusion in the first game. However there are also a few inconsistencies (like Sakura's blood type) that prevents ''Rival Schools'' from fitting neatly into the ''Street Fighter'' continuity.

Nevertheless Hinata and Tiffany would appear in the background of a stage in ''Street Fighter V'', confirming that they both exist in a {{Shared Universe}}.
