Aside from fighting games and tie-ins, there were the rather infamous DatingSim games for mobiles and NintendoDS, ''Days of Memories'' allowed the player character to venture in Southtown and date most of the fighting divas from the series ([[VideoGame/FatalFury and]] [[VideoGame/ArtOfFighting from]] [[VideoGame/SamuraiShodown others]]); later versions also allowed a girl player character to date the male fighters as well.

* IWasYoungAndNeededTheMoney: When SNK Playmore was in dire need for some quick profit in 2005, they pulled a desperate gamble; make a game to gather as many fans as they could, though another fighting game wasn't their aim. Seeing how many Bishoujo and MsFanservice girls they had in ''The King of Fighters'' and other [[VideoGame/ArtOfFighting fighting]] [[VideoGame/SamuraiShodown games]] [[VideoGame/FuunSeries as]] [[VideoGame/FatalFury well]], a series of {{dating sim}}s were made for mobiles and later ported over to the NintendoDS. The series was called ''Days of Memories'' with a subtitle for each new installment, it proved to be rather successful as seven ''mobile'' games and two [[UpdatedRerelease rereleases]] for NintendoDS were made until 2008.

[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_kvG7vjH_8 classic Kyo Kusanagi]] (''[==]'94''-''[==]'98'') skin for preorders. Additionally Athena Asamiya and Iori Yagami also received classic retro outfits. Geese Howard received a zombie-fied version of his infamous "Nightmare" form.
*** Extra outfits for Shun'ei and Nakoruru (both Japanese school uniforms). Extra outfits for Sylvie, Angel, Meitenkun, and Kula are also inbound.
*** Two retro stages are on the cards (a ''[=KoF=]''-themed version of Terry Bogard's ''Fatal Fury 2'' train stage and the Monaco racetrack stage from ''[='97=]'').
*** Most excitingly, there has been DLC characters confirmed. Whip is the first revealed with at least two (possibly three) more to come.

** Most notably, [[SamuraiShodown Nakoruru]], as well as her team-mates, Miu Miu and Love Heart, are stuck in King Of Fighters possibly permanently, making them ExiledFromContinuity for their ORIGINAL universes!

* 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).
