** ''The King of Fighters 2000'': [[ShouldersOfDoom Clone Zero]] may not be the leader of NESTS, but stands as its most wicked member. At the conclusion of the 2000 tournament, he reveals his ultimate plan: using the fighters' energy to fuel his KillSat, the Zero Cannon. This would be the key step in Zero's desire to [[TakeOverTheWorld create a new world order where he would rule supreme, not NESTS]]. Before the fight, he demonstrates the cannon's power by destroying the city of Southtown. After being defeated and his device shut down for good, he reveals to Whip in his dying breath that she is a clone of K's sister, angering her enough to shoot him dead. The game's story reveals more of Zero's deeds: he murdered Heidern's close friend Ling and impersonated him, creating a clone of the murdered man to act as his spy in the VideoGame/IkariWarriors. He also killed Krizalid in '''99'' for [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness no longer being useful to him]]. Unlike the other NESTS villains, Clone Zero has no sympathetic traits. He is an utter {{hypocrite}} who hates traitors while being one himself, and his desire to TakeOverTheWorld led to the destruction of an entire city. He stands out in the saga for his sheer and absolute malevolence.

* CompleteMonster: Rugal Bernstein does evil [[ForTheEvulz for the sake of being evil]]. He owns one of the [[MegaCorp world's biggest]] [[ArmsDealer weapons manufacturers]], has a BIG influence on global politics, is capable of causing WorldWarIII, and killed many martial artists just to bathe their bodies in liquid bronze and make them into decorative statues for his yacht.

** Blue Mary's voice. High pitched and with VERY repetitive kiais. And let's not get started on her "I shall return" ko cry.

** So you know that Verse is an amalgamation of many souls and most of them got released to the real world. One of them? [[spoiler:Mizuki Rashoujin, the dreaded priestess of Ambrosia that ruined the world so badly that Nakoruru needed to sacrifice her life just to undo her damage. Imagine Mizuki raising hell in the modern day just as she escaped from Verse's body and she may be more savvy now with her experience in the past with Nakoruru. And unlike Orochi, Ambrosia is completely malicious that this could be the most threatening foe that Kyo (or Shun'ei) may ever have to face one day...]]

* AmbiguouslyGay: Because of his reason for not shacking up with [[MsFanservice Mai]], some people within the fandom theorize and wonder if Andy Bogard is [[AmbiguouslyGay gay]].
** Spoofed with a couple of his special intros with Mai, where she shows him a (fake) baby that looks like him and he looks shocked.
** His AmbiguouslyGay status in the fandom was apparently also parodied in Mai's ending for ''Gals Fighters'': [[spoiler:Andy refuses to marry Mai arguing that he has secretly been a woman all this time; fortunately for Mai, it was AllJustADream, and she immediately wakes up]].

** The entire newcomers in ''XIV'' (except King of Dinosaurs [[spoiler:since he is Tizoc in disguise]]). Some longtime fans find them to be a boring, generic and too much animé in their character designs, personalities and movesets.

** Rock Howard, some fans, especially those who remember him from ''[[VideoGame/FatalFury Garou: Mark of the Wolves]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/CapcomVsSNK2MarkOfTheMillennium Capcom vs. SNK 2]]'' are generally happy at his inclusion in the [=KoF=] cast. However, other longtime series fans find him to be a boring, generic, [[{{Bishounen}} animé pretty boy]] who copies some of Terry and Geese's moves but doesn't have what makes them interesting to play. The fact that he was [[TierInducedScrappy low tier]] in most of his appearances (especially in ''Garou'') doesn't help, although SNK has promised that [[TookALevelInBadass he would be buffed quite a bit]].
