** Igniz' whip attack, which can juggle infinitely when the AI feels like it. You can even play as Igniz in ''2002 UM'' with the move completely intact in terms of cheapness and comboability.

** Nakoruru in ''XIV'', due to a combination of things, her heavy and EX Annu Mutsube can be made safe on block for one. Then there's her bird, Mamahaha, which acts as a projectile that comes in at a diagonal angle, making it work both as a long range poke and an anti-air move. Add to this the fact that it cannot be stopped by hitting Nakoruru which means it can break her out of combos, and even stop [=DM=]s in their tracks. There's a reason Mamahaha has been nicknamed [[MemeticMutation Bird Jesus]] by some players, and this would really bring back the nightmares of how broken she was in ''[[VideoGame/CapcomVsSNKMillenniumFight2000]]''.

Meitenkun is a male example, being a [[SleepyHead sleepy]] androgynoous young boy, his voice helps.

** Rugal crosses it several times:\\
\\
A ''KOF '94'' [[AudioAdaptation drama CD]] has him killing his servants for making minor goofs and not being "perfect". That same action is repeated in Tatsuya Shinjyouji's ''KOF '94'' manga, where in the second volume he bloodily murders a barely teenaged maid for merely bringing him the wrong wine for dinner. As he slowly approaches the poor little girl, you see him walking and [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything looming over the poor girl as she begs him to not hurt her...]] and then [[GoryDiscretionShot "SPLAT."]]\\
\\
In the third volume of the same manga, Rugal orders one of his subordinates to [[IHaveYourWife kidnap Kyo's girlfriend Yuki]] and lock her in a room with a time bomb only to force Kyo, Benimaru and Daimon fight the Women's Team in the streets of Osaka, in a sort of DeadlyGame where instead of fighting to the death, they fought to rescue poor Yuki. [[spoiler: Thank God the bomb was fake and Yuki was rescued in the nick of time.]] Rugal didn't even really ''need'' to have them fight that way, and did just to {{troll}} Kyo and co. ForTheEvulz.\\
\\
And then, there's the wicked pleasure he took on having Saisyu Kusanagi tortured within an inch of his life and then BrainwashedAndCrazy to make him [[TheDragon his servant]] in ''[='95=]''. Double when you play with the Japan Team and he ''gloats'' about it in front of Saisyu's son Kyo, who understandably ends up screaming "ThisIsUnforgivable!"\\
\\
There's also his mauling of Heidern's family and mercenary unit (mind you, this was ''single-handed'' and that Heidern's unit was ''fifty men strong''). Apparently done for no other reason than to provoke and slight Heidern. It was also featured in Shinjyouji's manga, with an added bonus: Clara and Sandra were killed ''while trying to protect the badly injured and now eye-less Heidern''.
** Goenitz, in response to Gaidel turning down his offer to join him in the attempt to resurrect their master Orochi, awakened Leona's Orochi blood for the first time when she was still a child, causing her to destroy her whole village and kill every inhabitant, her own family included.\\
\\
Also, he has several in Ryo Takamisaki's ''KOF: G''. First, he [[spoiler:gives Mai Shiranui a cruel BreakingLecture when [[HeroicBSOD she's at a very low point]], [[MoreThanMindControl which causes her]] to go UnstoppableRage on Kyo and Athena]]. Second, he [[spoiler: wreaks havoc in the finals, and we get to ''see'' the people collapse and almost surely die when his power rises and destroys everything, with the side-effect of making Benimaru [[MoreThanMindControl snap completely on Kyo]] and sending other fighters into BrainwashedAndCrazy states]]. Third, [[spoiler: he almost beats both Kensou ''and'' Chizuru to death, and shows up bragging about it while ''lifting the badly beaten Chizuru by her head''.]] And fourth, [[spoiler:remember what he did to Leona in her past? In this version, he ''does this again'', making her go into the Riot of the Blood ''with words alone'' so she'll kill everyone for him, with only Clark and Ralf's timely intervention keeping her from doing so.]]\\
\\
His [[spoiler:murder of Maki Kagura in front of her twin sister Chizuru]] is already bad, but in the ''KOF: KYO'' manga it's even worse because, in that particular continuity, [[spoiler:''[[WouldHitAGirl Chizuru and Maki]] [[WouldHurtAChild were little girls under the age of ten]] and he was [[TeensAreMonsters barely a teenager]]''.]]

*** Considering how odd the Hizoku clan is to begin with, with a gamut of abilities ranging from necromancy to stretching their limbs at will to naturally producing poisonous substances from their bodies to dissipating into skeletons in order to disappear/reappear on a whim, it's safe to say they're more than a bit unsettling. Seeing as some of the other fighters are creeped out by Duo Lon (a NiceGuy and a shining example of DarkIsNotEvil), it's very possible the heroic members of Hizoku are full-blown Type 4 {{Terror Hero}}es firmly settled in CreepyGood territory.
