** ''[='98=]: Ultimate Match'', which added Eiji from ''[='95=]'', Kasumi, the Boss Team and Goenitz from ''[='96=]'', and Orochi Iori, Orochi Leona, and Orochi himself from ''[='97=]''. Also included a game system option beyond "Advanced" and "Extra" called "Ultimate" that let the player mix elements from Advanced (stock bar and rolling) with Extra mode (charge bar and dodging). Certain rules were also tweaked (like having to trigger Extra mode's Max state manually as opposed to just activating on its own when the bar was full).

** ''2000'''s Another Striker cameos. We don't just mean from ''KOF'' either. The sprawling list of SNK [=IPs=] includes ''VideoGame/MetalSlug'', ''VideoGame/ArtOfFighting'', ''VideoGame/TheLastBlade'', ''VideoGame/SamuraiShodown'', ''[[VideoGame/FuunSeries Savage Reign/Kizuna Encounter]]'', ''VideoGame/{{Athena}}'', ''VideoGame/PsychoSoldier'', ''Burning Fight'', ''Buriki One''... Even [[http://snk.wikia.com/wiki/Neo_%26_Geo the mascots of a rather obscure quiz series]] and [[http://snk.wikia.com/wiki/G-Mantle SNK's mysterious former mascot]] were included.

** This is the result of [[spoiler: Verse's defeat in ''XIV'']], which brings many formerly dead characters back to life, including the [[spoiler: New Faces Team, and Ash]].

* AscendedExtra: Nakoruru and Tung Fu Rue have actually appeared in KOF games ('95 Gameboy and as an alternate Striker in '00 for the former, XI for the latter), but only as [[GuestFighter guest fighters]] with no bearings on the plot. In ''XIV'', they have their own teams, with Tung accompanying his student Shun'ei (the new protagonist), and Nakoruru leading the Another World team, apparently yanked away from her home series like her teammates.

*** XIV's announcers as well, despite fairly clearly being native Japanese speakers, their English is otherwise quite fluent.

** The original intent was to only aim at men with the female fighters as obvious [[LoveInterests interests]] for the average Player Character, but the series proved to worthy of their time and SNK Playmore started to whore out male fighters for female fans of the franchise as well. The initial roster for girls was composed of: '''Athena Asamiya, Kasumi Todoh, B. Jenet, King, Mai Shiranui, Yuri Sakazaki, Leona Heidern''' and '''Kula Diamond''', and the men were: '''Kyo Kusanagi, Iori Yagami, K', Ash Crimson, Terry Bogard, Rock Howard, Alba Meira''' and '''Ryo Sakazaki''', eventually after all the seven installments the choices grew to arguably as many popular guys and girls as any ''KOF'' "fan" would like to date. Of course this also includes massive doses of AlternateContinuity, HandWave, and {{Retcon}}, specially in regards to canon/teased love interests or other relationships, in order to make the games work.

** ''XIV'' brought with it not only Nakoruru from ''SamuraiShodown'', but also a Mui Mui and Love Heart, characters from a couple of obscure Japan only pachinko games as part the "Another World Team". The fact that they're appearing in a non-DreamMatch game opens the door to more of these as well.
