* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Ukyo Tachibana, was originally written as a rival to Haohmaru but he was going to die due to having tuberculois. However Ukyo got so popular SNK didn't kill him off but tried to replace him with Genjuro as Haohmaru's rival but Ukyo stuck around in the series anyways. Nowadays it is interpreted that Ukyo is Haohmaru's friendly rival while Genjuro is Haohmaru's "not-so" friendly rival.

** Nakoruru, a nature-protecting priestess, whose popularity grew to the levels of national idol in Japan and other asian countries . Out of Samurai Shodown fanart found on the net, around 70-80% is dedicated to Nakoruru; and in Japan big companies compete over releasing Nakoruru dolls. She may be the main heroine of ''VideoGame/SamuraiShodown'', but in terms of the whole SNK (whose biggest draws are mostly ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'') and Japan overall? Yeah.

To the point she even gets integrated into KOF canon by appearing in ''XIV''



* TheWoobie: Shizumaru, Jushiro and Mina are shining examples of this trope. ''Specially'' Mina, [[spoiler: who ends up ''commiting suicide''.]]

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Sugoroku was originally supposed to be a pirate character, explaining the otherwise out of place pirate stage in ''Tenka''. This was scrapped due to the fact that all of the preproduction designs [[CaptainErsatz strongly resembled]] [[SoulSeries Cervantes]], and the design team couldn't think of something more creative before deadlines.

* CrossoverShip: Iroha is actually fairly popular in this regard with the Yuri Fandom as she has been paired with the likes of [[SoulCalibur Ivy Valentine]], [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Morrigan Aensland]] and [[VideoGame/FatalFury Mai Shiranui]].

* SoBadItsGood: There are characters with uber annoying looks/laugh (Genan, Minto, Tashonmao, Kusaregedo, etc), that have certain popularity and are selected by players quite often - with (often successful) aim to get on opponent's nerves.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Tachibana Ukyo, a BadAss swordsman afflicted with tuberculosis, was intended for death early on in the series, when that didn't stick, they make him irrelevant to the plot thanks to Genjuro. However, due to popularity among fans, he was not killed off and has appeared throughout the series, despite the minimum roles. Most of the latter Samurai Shodown game stories are always set in a timeline where they can always include Ukyo.
