*** Creator/PercyByssheShelley's poem "Ozymandias" gets referenced twice. The obvious one is Sekhmet paraphrasing, "[[LookOnMyWorksYeMightyAndDespair Look on ye mighty, and despair!]]" The poem (and trope) being about how "Nothing beside remains" of the Egyptian empire, Sekhmet also [[RageAgainstTheHeavens tears at it]] with, "[[BadassBoast I remain!]]" in her Lady of Slaughter Blockbuster.

** Squigly can [[PunchedAcrossTheRoom punch opponents across the room]] with Liver Mortis. The name is already appropriate ("liver death"), but "[[AWorldwidePunomenon livor mortis]]" is also the [[UndeathlyPallor discoloration]] brought on from dying. On top of that, it is a nod to "rigor mortis," the post mortem stiffening of muscles, and is fashioned after Creator/BruceLee's famously rigid [[MegatonPunch one-inch punch]].

** The Medici Mafia run the city of New Meridian and are the patrons of Cerebella's circus. During the Italian Renaissance, the House of Medici ran the city of Florence and were patrons of the arts, though with less [[WorldHalfEmpty horrifying crime]].

** Common fanon is that it is romantic, but only on Cerebella's part, with Vitale seeing her only as a daughter. [[FreudWasRight This would of course make Cerebella the resident Electra-complex representative.]]

* AmericansHateTingle: While it does have its fans there and is not exactly hated per se, the game is not ''exactly popular'' in Latin America, compared with other established fighting game franchises like ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' or ''Franchise/StreetFighter''. This is partly because unlike the aforementioned games, the gameb is notorious for having a steep learning curve regarding combos, meaning that any useful tactic in those games will definively ''not'' going to work here, and partly because it's a console-exclusive game, while most Latin American players are more experienced with arcades.[[note]]This is not exclusive from this game, as practically games with similar playing schemes like Creator/ArcSystemWorks's fighters like ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' and ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' suffer from this as well in that region.[[/note]]

* BestKnownForTheFanservice: The game has a rather cool art style, a good story for a fighter, some interesting characters with personalities that shows they actually have more depth to them then just their looks, and is an overall fun and solid tournament fighter. Unfortunately, many people who haven't played the game for more than 10 minutes, if at all, often [[AudienceAlienatingPremise get stuck on]] its rather blatant fanservice. Though this [[FanDisservice diminishes really fast]].
