** The Arbiter has already managed to be this, considering the reaction from his tease made a lot of people interested in ''Killer Instinct'' just for his appearance. It helps he was this in his home series too. It also doesn't hurt that it's been a ''long'' time since ''Halo'' was involved in a crossover [[DeadOrAlive a popular fighting game franchise]].

** Rash. There's just as many people who are excited as there are people who think he doesn't fit the tone of KI at all, as well as claiming his inclusion will lead to KI getting flooded with guests and turn it into Microsoft's equivalent of VideoGame/SuperSmashBros.

* KillerApp: The SNES port of the original Killer Instinct helped push a lot of units thanks to the success the game found in the arcades. The Xbox One reboot also counts, being a very popular, exclusive launch title for that system.

** Fulgore's [[https://youtu.be/k7HqDxtPAlU?t=14s Devastation Beam]], which makes a really satisfying Godzilla-like mechanical roar. Unless you're targeted by it, in which case it's [[HellIsThatNoise nightmarish]].

Unless you're targeted by it, in which case it's [[HellIsThatNoise nightmarish]].nightmarish]]. ** It sounds amazing to Instinct Cancel with anyone in the game (especially Fulgore) during a combo - all the music and sound effects and explosions stop for a second while your character gets ready to lay down a beatdown, often with a punchy sound to it (ex. Fulgore entering a command into the keypad on his arm, Orchid yelling "Take em down!", Spinal cackling, etc.)

** Thankfully, his rebooted appearance is much more politically correct, rather than the "red-skinned Indian" stereotype from before. Apparently some of the Iron Galaxy devs even approached some of the people of the Nez Perce tribe to help them make it as accurate as possible, so it has the approval of at least one actual Native tribe. ** Additionally, the Iron Galaxy devs refused to make Thunder's retro outfit fully resemble his original appearance. They gave him a jacket and got rid of his war paint and mohawk headdress, so he looks more politically correct while still resembling his old self.

Apparently some all of the Iron Galaxy devs even approached some of sound effects in the people of game, especially those from ethereal characters like [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z41TN3Pu6NU Omen]]. You normally can't hear it very well over all the Nez Perce tribe to help them make it as accurate as possible, so it has the approval of at least one actual Native tribe. ** Additionally, the Iron Galaxy devs refused to make Thunder's retro outfit fully resemble his original appearance. They gave him a jacket music and got rid of his war paint hitsounds, but they're there and mohawk headdress, so he looks more politically correct while still resembling his old self.they're grand. The team really outdid themselves on this one.

* DuelingGames: ''Killer Instinct 2013'' is billed as one against ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear Xrd'', by virtue of being on rival platforms (''Xrd'' and the PS3/4 vs. ''KI'' and the XBO) and being the resurrection of two old 2D fighting game franchises. There's also a bit of an America vs. Japan thing going on.
