* ArtEvolution: Patch 1.10 of XIV includes a significant graphical upgrade to the character models, making it look even better and less like a PS2 game as it was derided before. [[http://www.siliconera.com/2016/11/28/king-fighters-xiv-patch-1-10-will-make-game-look-better/ See for yourself]]

* TheArtifact: It's what happens when [[DemotedToExtra you're not the protagonist]], regardless of whether or not you've been a mainstay. The biggest cases of this are probably [[TheHero Terry Bogard]], [[MsFanservice Mai]] [[JigglePhysics Shiranui]], and [[JusticeWillPrevail Kim Kaphwan]]. While they are still around more than the others whom are generally DemotedToExtra or [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome just mysteriously disappear]], they are generally only kept in to appease older fans.

Really, this can apply to anyone who isn't original to the series; you'll be there for the veterans but have little to no impact on the actual plot.

** Joe skipped ''XI''.



** Many Tales of Ash-introduced characters (save for Tung, and he really only comes in XI's console release without any bearing to the plot) don't come back in ''XIV''.
* QuestForIdentity: The focal point of the NESTS Team storyline in ''2001''.[[spoiler:[[{{Freakout}} The results aren't pretty]], [[GoneHorriblyRight especially for Igniz.]]]]

''XIV''. Played with in that [[spoiler:King of Dinosaurs is almost certainly Tizoc, introduced in 2003, and Ash appears in Official Invitation Team's ending where Kukri and Elizabeth are looking for him.]]

* SequentialBoss: '''97'' has ''five'' of these, or even ''six'' if some conditions are met. The first one is either [[spoiler: Orochi Iori]] if you don't have [[spoiler: Iori Yagami]] in your team, or [[spoiler: Orochi Leona]] if you do. He or she will be followed by [[spoiler: the empowered forms of the New Face Team: first you defeat Orochi Chris, then Orochi Shermie, and Orochi Yashiro at last]]. Not satisfied? Once they're defeated, [[spoiler: it's time to fight {{Orochi}} himself.]] ButWaitTheresMore! If you [[spoiler: fight as the Japan Team and defeat Orochi with Kyo Kusanagi]], this will unlock one last match [[spoiler: where Kyo fights Iori Yagami (as in, normal Iori without the Riot of the Blood)]]

* An as of yet unnamed new story arc that begins with ''The King of Fighters XIV'' and introduces Shun'ei, a student of [[VideoGame/FatalFury Tung Fu Rue]] as the new protagonist. The game itself will now use 3D graphics while still retaining its roots as a two-dimensional playing field, similar to games such as ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'' or ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9''.

In addition to the thirteen games of the main ''KOF'' storyline, there are multiple spin-offs, remakes and [[DreamMatchGame "dream match"]] titles (that combine all the characters of that particular saga into one game).

** Seeing at it was the old SNK's last hurrah, ''2000'' featured a massive overload of [[TheCameo cameos]] from most of their older [=IP=]s. The Maniac Strikers in the console versions continue the trend.

** ''[='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).
