** The Official Invitation Team. Sylvie is a minor BaseBreaker but still fairly well-liked, Mian is seen as a character with a unique design and fighting style and {{Moe}} personality due to her shyness and Kukri's edginess being ramped UpToEleven with his meanspirited and insulting winquotes makes some see him as a hilarious {{Troll}} and tongue in cheek take on edgy characters.

** Ron, the {{badass}} [[NonPlayerCharacter NPCs]] who shows up in ''KOF 2000'', is a notable example.

* EarWorm: [[https://youtu.be/jwbFjXfuQIU "Follow Me"]], the theme of ''XIV'', is ridiculously energetic and catchy. It's hard not to get excited while listening to this song.

** Many South American fans (excluding Brazilians) do not like the South American Team, or at least say they should have called Team Brazil. Why? Because despite the name of the team, its member are all Brazilians, even Zarina, despite being Colombian, she lives in Brazil and has more brazilians elements than colombians in her design.

* TheyJustDidntCare: From ''[='96=]'' to ''2001'', King kept using the same vocals. Even in ''Capcom vs. SNK'', where every other SNK character had new vocals, King kept the same dated audio.
** The same point could be made for Robert. It wasn't until ''2003'' that Robert finally received an updated audio track.
** In the [=PS2=] port of ''XI'', all of the extra characters ported over from ''VideoGame/NeoGeoBattleColiseum'' sans EX Kyo and Geese lack their own character themes, instead receiving "Secret Circumstances," the theme of the Agent Team. [[AwesomeMusic/{{SNK}} While by no means is it a bad choice in music]], it is rather ill-fitting, especially when you consider that the console version included multiple remixes of older themes, either for characters who were first in rotation [[note]]"Big Shot!" for Terry, "Diet" for Yuri, "Bad Girl" for B. Jenet, "Arashi no Saxophone" for Iori, "Still Green" for Shingo, "Esaka [[{{Irony}} ~ Acid Mix]]" for EX Kyo", "[[{{Leitmotif}} Geese ni]] Katakori" for Geese[[/note]] or [[EasterEgg fighting at the Concert stage]] [[note]][[ImageSong "Kizudarake no Blue Moon"]] for Athena, "Duck Duck Dub" for Duck King[[/note]]. Even if they weren't given rearrangements of previous themes, you'd think that the sound team would at least quickly put together a catch-all theme like "Jack", the theme for mid-bosses Silber and Jyazu (after all, there's an "Ace" missing from the [[ThemeNaming card motif]] of ''XI''[='s=] musical tracks), or, failing that, match up the characters with themes belonging to their closest in-game buddies (ex: giving Robert "After a Long Absence", the Art of Fighting Team's BGM).

** Nakoruru's teammates from the Another World Team (Mui Mui and Love Heart). One part think they're pretty cool additions and showing that SNK is pretty fair to even their Pachinko titles even as they are leaving the venture behind. The other camp is the camp that assumes that [[FanDumb they're instantly bad characters]] solely because of [[AmericansHateTingle how reviled Pachislot games are to just them at least]] after the bad taste to Pachinko left by Creator/{{Konami}}. Or just people who were pretty salty that SNK did not use actual old arcade series that they'd know already, like those featured in ''VideoGame/NeoGeoBattleColiseum''. (majorly ''VideoGame/WorldHeroes'' and ''VideoGame/TheLastBlade'')

Even sometimes Nakoruru took small heat on it because they thought her team is 'Team Pachinko', only to be reminded that ''VideoGame/SamuraiShodown'' existed long before Pachinko (though the series did get several Pachislot series after getting a FranchiseKiller game)

* BaseBreaker: A number of characters have a fair share of fans and haters, but Sylvie takes the cake; an adorable modern idol with a hidden sadistic streak, or a God-forsaken kawaii POS that was an out-of-place abomination from as early as the leaked concept art?

* DorkAge: Some fans of the series also look at the period of time Eolith produced the games, especially ''2001'' 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]].

* {{Moe}}: Athena (more so starting in ''XII''), Hinako, Kula, 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.]]

** Taken UpToEleven with Nightmare Geese's appearance in ''XIV.'' This time, his nightmarish aspects extend to his appearance. His appearance makes him actually look like he's returned from beyond the grave (despite KOF being a separate timeline from the one he dies in) with pale purple skin, [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]], [[WhiteHairBlackHeart gray hair]] and tattered clothing. He now sports a VoiceOfTheLegion and ghostly [[PurpleIsTheNewBlack purple reppukens]] as well, giving him a truly otherworldly and frightening vibe.
