* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: ''Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown'' has two examples:
** Training mode includes an animation frame counter that displays how long it takes for a technique to execute, as well as how much of an advantage you have after a successful hit or guard. Usually, this kind of feature is available only to the developers, who would use it to tweak moves to make them faster or slower. This trope is notable because no other fighting game before ''Final Showdown'' has a frame counter.
** You can configure your buttons at the character select screen. A much-appreciated feature for tournament players.
** See JigglePhysics below to see how far the dev team thinks.

A 35 episode [[AnimeOfTheGame anime]] aired in Japan from October 2, 1995 June 27, 1996. Only the first 24 episodes were dubbed into English, though the entire series has been dubbed in Spanish, Italian, and Arabic. An OVA titled ''Virtua Fighter Costomize Clip'' was also released in 1996, consisting solely of animated music videos set to songs from the Virtua Fighter image song album ''Dancing Shadows.'' The OVA is incredibly obscure, but it can be viewed [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=flO4rsRe-mc here.]]

* ExcusePlot: Due to the lack of in-game references, the machinations of J6 end up becoming this when you play. None of the characters even have endings.

Compared to other fighting game franchises, ''Virtua Fighter'' doesn't have much focus in its storyline. This is partially due to trying to make the combat mechanics more realistic and the depth in the characters' fighting styles as a whole and the moves they use. ''Virtua Fighter'' is known for the balance of its characters between each other. The series is also notable for being one of the few fighting game franchises to preserve its character roster throughout every entry, adding new fighters without removing anyone. The sole exception was Taka-Arashi, who was retired in ''Virtua Fighter 4'' due to the difficulty of integrating the sumo wrestling style into the new engine, only to return in ''Virtua Fighter 5R''.

** Akira himself. Despite being the main character, he's, ironically, generally considered one of the hardest characters to master in this already difficult to master game. That said, he consistently tops tier lists.
