- Casanova Wannabe: In his special win quote against Lihua and Liza, he tries hitting on them and in his scene in the credits, he used his Shoryuken-like attack to lift a girl's skirt.. Said girl was NOT pleased and Kazuya ends up getting slapped in the face for his trouble.
- Shoryuken: Two variations; one starting with a crouch dash when done on the ground and one in mid-air.
- Shotoclone: As the main character of the game, Kazuya being one is a given.
- Walking Shirtless Scene: Other than his Sarashi wrappings and his gi top which he uses more than a Coat Cape, he fights bare-chested.

- Walking Shirtless Scene: He wears an open jacket but no shirt.

- Action Dad: Has an unnamed son that shows up in his win poses and ending.

- Taking You with Me: His Desperation Attack where he grabs the opponent and a number count appears over his head. When it reaches zero, Marco explodes, damaging his opponent in the progress. This is subverted when Marco somehow regenerates his body while his opponent is on the ground after taking a lot of damage.
- Use Your Head: One of his special moves have him take off his head and throw it across the screen.
- Wrestler in All of Us: Sort of. He IS the token grappler of the game, after all. At least the playable grappler in Gonzales' case.
- Expy: He's pretty much a Russian version of Goro Daimon, given the fact that the two of them are judokas, having their Eyes Always Shut, and that their own judo moves go way beyond that of the standard judo techniques.

- I Will Find You: Gonzales is very determined to find his missing fiance Tanya.

- Doppleganger Attack: One of his infamous moves is sending out ghostly figures of him around him, making it impossible for the player to even get near him.
- Evil Laugh: "HUHUHUHUH! HUHUHUHUH!". He'll belt it out every time you challenge him, so get used to this one.
- Expy: Let's see. A SNK Boss that is dressed like a dictator. M. Bison much?
- Pet the Dog: In Marco's ending, he not only gives Marco the money to fund the science research project but he also helps out with it by giving up Marco a human body for him to have.
- SNK Boss: Goodness. Observe. This guy is basically the hardest boss throughout all fighting games since its release. For further proof? Even the writers from game magazines gave up to write strategies against him. It took until 2014 until he was finally beaten fairly, here, and even then it was a very narrow win.
- Teleport Spam: One of the big factors in his difficulty is that he can spam a DBZ-esque teleport like there's no tomorrow. And he knows it, closing every distance by a chokeslam-followed teleport and casually teleporting behind you every time he feels like it.
- Space Zone: His space station stage. How his opponent managed to get all of the way up there is up to debate.
