** Gang-il's physical appearance, especially in the face, bears an eerie resemblance to [[WebOriginal/TheKingOfHate DarkSydePhil.]] This has not gone unnoticed.

** Iori Yagami in ''[='98=]'' is beatable due to his clunky moves and his slow movement, yes, but he is also a god-tier character. Pretty much all of his moves, normal or not, have a longer range than they look, and are solid combo tools giving him deadly hit confirms. His air attacks hit extremely low, so much that his jumping C can easily hit a ''crouching'' [[HitboxDissonance Choi Bounge]], and lets not get into his very reliable cross-up kick that pulls in opponents on hit. He has a invincible grab (Kuzukaze/Scum Wind) that makes the opponent open to anything, and anything he does can combo into his Aoihana (Hollyhock Flower), a 3-input move that deals high damage and quickly stuns the opponent. And, he has a fast projectile of his own, allowing him to zone. AND, his Ya Otome AKA Maiden Masher DM rushes toward the opponent with high priority, low enough to go under any midair projectile and it's its possible to hit midair opponents with it. Go ahead, try to find a pro-level match where Iori isn't present.

** Athena's Psycho Ball projectile possesses almost instant recovery, as well as having a teleport and a bug that makes her retreat at absurd speed when doing a backdash. Should you be at a lower health when the match time is about to finish, unless you're a very fast character yourself there's pretty much nothing you can do other than try and follow her while avoiding her fireballs and watching out for a DM that jolts you if you touch her.

** Angel in ''2002''. She is meant to be played by players with experience in string-system combos; however, since this system would be considered hard to use properly, the game rewards Angel with long invincibility periods while doing her moves. This translates in the opponent having to guess what Angel will do and attack in the hopes that her next move won't have invincibility. Also, one of her moves in the string is a uppercut that can hit the opponent while he is recovering in the air. Should Angel spam this on the corner, we have an infinite combo that requires absolutely no power stocks.

*** Due to that case, EX Geese (who was a rebalanced version of Nightmare and Real Bout Fatal Fury 2 Geese in one) was used a lot more than normal Geese, possibly due to his better zoning with actual projectile-based Reppuuken attacks.

** ''The King of Fighters 2000'': [[TheStarscream 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.

** Heidern's Moon Slasher and Stormbringer in ''KOF '94''. Due to [[GoodBadBugs bugs]], these two moves had [[ForMassiveDamage abusive damage ratios]] to the point that a maximum power Stormbringer could ''[[OneHitKill one-shot]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CmhGMVPY2Yw a character who was at full health.]]'' Luckily, these bugs were addressed by the time ''[='95=]'' rolled in.
