* {{Moe}}: Athena (more so starting in ''XII''), Hinako, Momoko, Hotaru. Leona ''might'' count, but this overlaps with her status as TheWoobie.

* {{Moe}}: Athena (more so starting in ''XII''), Hinako, Momoko, Hotaru. Leona ''might'' count, but this overlaps with her status as TheWoobie. ''XIV'' ups the ante by bringing in SNK's (or Japan's) champion {{Moe}} character, [[VideoGame/SamuraiShodown Nakoruru]], along with some legit {{Moe}} characters like Muimui and Sylvie... though the last one is [[BitchInSheepsClothing a nasty Moe.]]

*** As mentioned before, Iori is more of a shotoclone-like character, but its due to his unique moves and his actually high damage output, he's often used a lot as he provides massive-yet-possibly-combo potential and decent mixup. Though he's a bit of a case of DifficultButAwesome due to the fact that his moves are clunky, as in very easy to punish if misused, and his walking speed is quite slow. In it all, Iori is powerful, but still a difficult character to manage due to some of his more unsafe tools.

** Terry's mangled English has become a vital part of his character.

** Terry's mangled English has become a vital part of his character. As well as Geese's. Which led to his hilariously cheesy reveal trailer at ''XIV'' (although this quote was instead taken from his ''Capcom vs SNK'' incarnation): "'''PREDICTABO!!'''"

** Athena's new [[LimitBreak Desperation Move]] in ''KOF XIV'' has led to some fans calling her "[[Franchise/DragonBallZ Frieza's]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_YASzvGohQ final form]]".

* BrokenBase: The series going 3D again in the KOF XIV announcement trailer. Some welcome it, believing that 3D models will be much more efficient and allow them to put more characters into the game, others believe the initial graphics presented in the trailer look like a PS2 game, drudging up memories of the already-divisive ''Maximum Impact'' series, and others believe that the new entry should have either kept the high-quality sprites of ''XIII'' or went with a graphics style more like that of ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear Xrd'' (3D models with shading to make them look like sprites).

** Averted with ''[[DreamMatchGame 2002]]'' to some extent even though it's made by Eolith, it's still one of the most played versions in the series competitively, and even after the release of ''[[UpdatedRerelease 2002: Unlimited Match]]'' you'll still see some original ''[='02=]'' tournies being played. Now, ''2001'' on the other hand? Nope.

* DorkAge: Fans of ''The King Of Fighters'' generally look at the period of time Eolith produced the games (''KOF 2001'' and ''2002'') as a Dork Age. The way ''2001'' plays is in general more glitchy and gimmicky (letting you choose how many teammates and strikers you want, for starters - meaning you can even fight ''1-vs-4 battles'', something that should only be reserved for bosses) than any other incarnation of the series, and is in general a mess. The music for these games has been compared to the sounds of robots farting, and Eolith [[ExecutiveMeddling introduced a few of their own character designs]] (although a scant few, like [[EnsembleDarkhorse May Lee]], were more favorably received). When Creator/{{SNK}} [[BackFromTheDead reclaimed the wheel]] as SNK Playmore, among the first things they did was to [[{{Retcon}} wipe several elements from]] ''[[{{Retcon}} 2001]]'' [[{{Retcon}} right out of the canon]], including the whole character of K9999 (also a blatant CaptainErsatz of [[Manga/{{Akira}} Tetsuo]]) and [[KilledOffForReal Foxy's death]]. To give ''[[DreamMatchGame 2002]]'' some credit, it's still one of the most played versions in the series competitively, and even after the release of ''[[UpdatedRerelease 2002: Unlimited Match]]'' you'll still see some original ''[='02=]'' tournies being played. Now, ''2001'' on the other hand? Nope.

to:

* DorkAge: Fans The tag team games,''2003'' and ''XI''. There's a reason that the series went dropped these with ''XII''

* BaseBreaker: Sylvia; an adorable modern idol with a hidden sadistic streak, or a God-forsaken kawai POS that was an out-of-place abomination from as early as the leaked concept art?
