* ActorAllusion: Yuri tells Gai to try pulling off a Hurricane Upper. The joke here is that Gai and Joe [[Creator/NobuyukiHiyama sound the same]].
** Benimaru's English VA in ''XII'' and ''XIII'' is Eric Kelso, who also voices [[VideoGame/{{Tekken}} Paul Phoenix]] and [[VideoGame/VirtuaFighter Jacky Bryant]], both of whom, like Benimaru, are blond fighters with AnimeHair pointing upwards.
** Kusanagi from ''2002'' has special battle intros with any weapon wielder (e.g. Whip, Billy, Chang and Choi), calling them out to fight with their fists instead of weapons; basically the same scene in ''Manga/{{AKIRA}}'' with Kaneda (who, like Kusanagi, was voiced by Creator/MitsuoIwata) calling out on Tetsuo to take on him with his own fists instead of using his powers.
--->'''Kusanagi''': "Temee! Sude de shoubu shiagare!" ("You [bastard]! Fight me with your bare hands!")
*** [[ExaggeratedTrope Doubled]] during his intro against [=K9999=] (who was even voiced by Creator/NozomuSasaki, hammering home how much he was a Tetsuo-lite):
--->'''K9999''': "[[SayMyName KUSANAGIIII]]!!!"
--->'''Kusanagi''': "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVCQ3srN-Z4 '-San' wo tsukero yo, dekosuke yarou!!!]]" ("[[TheyCallMeMisterTibbs That's MISTER Kusanagi to you, punk!]]")
** Athena being voiced by Haruna Ikezawa is one, Ikezawa being born in Athens, Greece no less.
* AscendedFanon: Mr. Karate and Nightmare Geese were actually {{fan nickname}}s before Creator/{{SNK}} officially named them as such in later games.
** Yamazaki became a member of the Hakkesshu because he conveniently shared several snake-like aspects with Orochi.
** SNK says that most of Oswald's background (which has not yet been revealed) has already been surmised by the fans.
** Athena's [[UnrequitedLoveTropes one-sided romantic interest]] in Kyo was purely fanon, until ''KOF:KYO'' and the ''[='98=]'' and ''2000'' dramas strongly hinted that she ''did'' harbor some feelings for him. (And then they dropped the ball.)
* BillingDisplacement: ''XIV'' has Shun'ei as a new protagonist of the series. However, Kyo and Iori are featured very heavily in the promotion of the game. Kyo is also on the front cover of the [=PS4=] box art along with Iori, Mai and Nakoruru, while Shun'ei was put on the background.
* CreatorsFavorite: SNK flat-out admits they love Rugal. They designed him from the ground up to be the most badass boss character there ever was (and that's not paraphrasing by much), and that they make him the final boss in Dream Match games because he's their favorite. This would be annoying, if Rugal didn't viciously beat his way into players' hearts the world over, cementing himself as an icon to the fanbase as much as he is to the folks at SNK. The SNK fandom likely idolizes him more than Capcom fans have idolized the likes of [[Franchise/StreetFighter Akuma or M. Bison]].
* DevelopmentGag: May not even have been intentional. Prior to creating Kyo Kusanagi, SNK had drafted his character as "Syo Kirishima", a more archetypal fighting game protagonist. While this was eventually dropped in favor of Kyo, Syo showed up a couple of times in the NESTS arc as a special Striker character. During those appearances, he was voiced by the aforementioned Mitsuo Iwata. Come ''KOF 2002'', Iwata would be voicing Kusanagi, who is a throwback Kyo clone complete with his ''[='95=]'' moveset.
* DoingItForTheArt: SNK Playmore's decision to stick to the traditional means of sprite creation (dot art, or "pixel-by-pixel") for ''The King of Fighters XII'' and ''XIII'' over doing cel-based 2D animation (like ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' does) or fully 3D graphics (as ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'' did). Since ''XII'' and ''XIII'' are HD games, they needed sprites that would be reasonably sized at [=720p=], which required a ''lot'' of work (they estimated about a year's worth of work for every character's animation set). However come ''XIV'' they adopted the TwoAndAHalfD approach ''Street Fighter IV'' uses. Still, commendable effort to stick to such a traditional means of sprite creation at a time where it was becoming increasingly infeasible (both due to the advancement in display resolution requiring larger and more detail-heavy sprites and the diminishing number of talented artists who could still ''do'' that kind of work).
* ExecutiveMeddling: When Eolith sponsored Playmore so they could pick up the scraps from SNK's fallout, they requested a "Korean Athena". The end result was May Lee.
* ExiledFromContinuity: K9999, mainly due to him being too blatant an {{Expy}} of [[Manga/{{AKIRA}} Tetsuo Shima]]. So much so, he was the only character present in the NESTS arc not to appear in ''2002 Unlimited Match''; SNK-Playmore created Nameless with the specific purpose of replacing K9999 and [[PutOnABusToHell retconning him away]].
* FanNickname:
** In order to differentiate Kyo from his clones, fans often refer to his NESTS depiction as "Shin Kyo" ([[MeaningfulName as in]] "True Kyo").
** [[HoYay Yaoiori]] for Iori, thanks to all of his FoeYay with Kyo. The infamous "Yagami is I'm-a-gay backwards" joke didn't help in this regard; his tendency of throwing out ambiguously gay lines in his special intros with Kyo probably helped even less. This is [[ShipTease teased]] to no end by various official/fan works.
** Fathena for Athena's appearance in ''XII'' and ''XIII'': {{Moe}}ness and chubby legs.
** Yuri's parody of the [[Franchise/StreetFighter Shun Goku Satsu]], the Yuri Chou Enbu, is sometimes called the Shin Yuri Satsu.
** Kim is sometimes nicknamed as The Beijing King, thanks to the MyWayEntertainment fan dub of one of the ''Fatal Fury'' [=OVAs=].
*** Don't forget "WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry" for [[ThoseTwoBadGuys Chang and Choi]].
** Ralf's Neo MAX from ''XIII'' has been christened as the [[RatedMForManly MAN]]retsuken (a play on Ryo's Zanretsuken), due to the [[AwesomenessIsVolatile overflowing abundance of]] [[{{Badass}} GAR]].
** Robert's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1U_5rCax8Y Hien Shippu Ryuujin Kyaku Neo MAX]] is alternatively called ''[[VideoGame/TonyHawksProSkater Robert Garcia's Pro Skater XIII]]'' and [[Series/KamenRider Rider Kick]].
** Firstly, there's Rugal's "Rugalspin" (Dead End Screamer DM, 1998 only). This owes a lot from {{MUGEN}}.
** [[SNKBoss Cheesenitz]] and [[UnfortunateNames Goenadz]] for the Goenitz himself, as well as the Goenitzpin, another [[MemeticMutation meme]] spawned in the wake of the Rugalspin thanks to his new HSDM/[=MAX2=] in ''2002: Unlimited Match''.
** Geese is usually called [[SNKBoss Geeser the Cheeser]] and [[JustForPun Geeseter Bunnie]]. As for his Raging Storm DM, there's the Pretzel due to the move's [[SomeDexterityRequired absurd input command]] that was made that convoluted ''just'' for the sake of nostalgia.
** Krauserspin for Krauser Gigatech Cyclone SDM. Again, blame {{MUGEN}}.
*** Also there's Betty [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IMMJkvY4OUc for an]] [[DummiedOut unused DM]] for Krauser in ''[='96=]''.
** Shingo's notebook full of information on his techniques has been known as both the Manga/DeathNote and GameFAQs thanks to his HSDM in ''2002: Unlimited Match''.
** Mongolia - Maxima, with one of his normal moves being a Mongolian Chop. It's from Japanese {{Mugen}} community where they call him such due to parody videos involving him doing that move a lot.
** Ass Crimson - Ash Crimson from ''The King of Fighters 2003'', who is so flamboyant that he might qualify as a GorgeousGeorge. He's also sometimes called as Ass Crapson, Fish Crimson (stemming from an unfortunately squished uppercase "A" in one of the ''XI'' menus resembling the letter F) and Fist Crimson. [[ViewerGenderConfusion Ashley]] [[PrecisionFStrike Crishit]] and Ash [[PrecisionFStrike Shitson]] are less popular but still common variations of the above. You can tell that ''a lot'' of people hate [[ReplacementScrappy Ash]], but SNK ([[AmericansHateTingle and the Japanese]]) [[CreatorsPet just love him]]. Of course, all fan nicknames for Ash Crimson became discredited [[spoiler: [[WellIntentionedExtremist once his true motives were revealed]]]].
** Chuuni for Shun'ei in ''XIV'' due both to his design giving off vibes of the stereotypical chuunibyou teenager and the similarity of his name to the term.
* FlipFlopOfGod: Is this series an AlternateContinuity to ''[[VideoGame/ArtOfFighting Art of Fighting]]'' and ''VideoGame/FatalFury''? What gender is Shion? Is Kula Diamond a clone or just an altered human? SNK can't seem to decide.
** To answer the first question: Is Geese Howard [[SchrodingersCat dead or alive]]? There ya go.
** Luise's profile and storyline in the ''Maximum Impact'' series were written to be deliberately different from one another, most likely to prevent spoilers.
* MarthDebutedInSmashBros: Maxima was originally in an old SNK beat 'em up called ''Robo Army''. The other main character, Rocky, serves as his alternate Striker in ''2000''.
** Also in ''XIV'', the characters from SNK's pachislot games like Muimui, Love Heart and Alice.
* NamesTheSame: Despite being named Heavy D[[ExcitedTitle !]], the leader of the US Sports Team is not the rapper...
* TheOtherDarrin:
** Jun Hashimoto (Andy Bogard's seiyuu in ''KOF '94'') was replaced by Creator/KeiichiNanba in the following game; Nanba has voiced Andy in all subsequent games.
** In ''XII'', Matsuo Matsuo now voices Chin instead of Toshikazu Nishimura.
** Several characters had alternate voice actors/actresses in the ''[='94=]'' Dengeki drama CD:
*** Kyo: Creator/RyotaroOkiayu.
*** Benimaru: Creator/HikaruMidorikawa.
*** Daimon: Creator/RyuzaburoOtomo.
*** King: Creator/YumiTouma.
*** Mai: Music/MegumiHayashibara.
*** Ryo: Creator/AkiraKamiya.
*** Yuri: Creator/SakuraTange.
*** Takuma: Creator/HochuOtsuka.
*** Rugal: Creator/BanjoGinga.
*** Terry: Creator/TakeshiKusao.
*** Joe: Creator/KazukiYao.
** Katsuhisa Namase voiced Joe in ''KOF '94''. NobuyukiHiyama has taken over the role since then, until ''XIV''.
** Robert Garcia: Kazuhiro "Kay" Inage was replaced by Mantaro Koichi, who voiced Robert from ''KOF '96'' to ''2003''. When Robert popped up as a SecretCharacter in ''XI'' (which was based off of his appearance in MascotFighter ''VideoGame/NeoGeoBattleColiseum''), Inage returned to voice Robert, and continues to do so in ''XII'' and ''XIII''.
** Bunsyu Shinoya takes over for Ralf in ''XII''. In English, Scott Casey in the ''Maximum Impact'' series, Jeff Manning in ''XII''.
** In English, Clark went from Sean Michaels (''Maximum Impact'') to Eric Kelso (''XII'').
** Kim is voiced by Kazuhiko Nagata in ''XII'', succeeding Satoshi Hashimoto (Hashimoto still voices Terry, though).
** Akoya Sogi (who has voiced Mai from the beginning up to ''XI'') has been replaced by Creator/AmiKoshimizu as of ''KOF Sky Stage''. Given that Sogi has apparently retired, it's a safe bet to assume that Koshimizu will take over in all subsequent appearances. This could also be the reason behind Mai's absence in ''XII''.
** For Kyo, Andrew Roth (his English VA in the ''Maximum Impact'' series) was replaced by Peter von Gomm come ''XII''.
*** His Japanese Voice is also changed for ''XIV'', with Tomoaki Maeno taking over Masahiro Nonaka.
** Between ''[='94=]'' and ''[='98=]'', Athena's voice changed as much as her clothes, with one for every game. In order: Reiko Fukai, Moe Nagasaki, the aforementioned Tamao Sato, Chris Yukina, and lastly Haruna Ikezawa, which was the one who stuck. It can be presumed that this was because SNK was testing out seiyuu for her.
** The [[AuthorExistenceFailure unfortunate consequence]] of the suicide of Creator/DaisukeGori led to Raiden's voice duty being handed over to Iain Gibb in ''XIII''.
** Krizalid is a rather perplexing example in that ''both'' of his seiyuu are used in ''2002 UM'' (Yoshiyuki Iwamoto for him as a standalone character, Eiji Yano for him as one of Original Zero's Strikers). Semi-justified since they are two different Krizalids, the one who backing Zero being a clone of the one who hosted the '99 tournament.
** En masse for XIV, many voice talents got replaced, not the first time it happened in the series as one can see above but XIV took many mainstays out in one go; characters that had the same voice for decades (Kyo, Kensou, Yuri to name a few) were finally, but sadly, gone. And also shockingly, despite still being active in 2016, Creator/NobuyukiHiyama did ''not'' return for Joe.
** Nakoruru subverts this in ''XIV'', though. Harumi Ikoma, her very original voice actress, did not return for her. However, Creator/MaiNakahara, who was voicing her during her appearances in ''Samurai Shodown'''s Pachislot titles reprised her role.
** In her old Pachislot title, Love Heart was voiced by Creator/AtsukoTanaka. Come her KOF debut, Creator/ToaYukinari took over.
* PlayingAgainstType: Creator/TakehitoKoyasu as... Shingo Yabuki. Yep.
** Also, Ramon is one of Creator/EijiTakemoto's quirkiest roles. From Rock Howard to him, wow, that's quite a jump. And, like the previous case, it's quite different from the main parts of Takemoto's resumé.
** And don't forget about Creator/MotokoKumai, while sometimes voicing the BrattyHalfPint or the AnnoyingYoungerSibling, has voiced {{Orochi}}. Justified because she also voices [[spoiler:Chris, Orochi's vessel.]]
* RoleReprisal: In the mass replacing in ''XIV'', some old voice actors ''still return'':
** Atsushi Maezuka is back for Benimaru and Choi (but not for Ralf).
** Hiroyuki Arita is back for Chang.
** Kong Kuwata is back for Geese.
** Harumi Ikoma is back for King (but not for Nakoruru)
** Hikaru Hanada is back for King of Dinosaurs/[[spoiler: Tizoc]]
* TalkingToHimself: Get yourself a snack, this could take a while.
** Brian Battler shares a seiyuu with Kensou, Eiji Yano. Yano was also the announcer for ''2002'', as well as Krizalid's voice in ''2001''.
** Toshimitsu Arai, the voice of Rugal, also voices Heidern, as well as Original Zero and Saisyu (only in ''KOF '95'', though).
** Jeff Manning voices Andy, Ralf, and Shen Woo in the English version of ''XII''.
** Satoshi Hashimoto voices both Terry and Kim.
** Hiroyuki Arita, the voice of Chang, also voices Silber in ''XI'' (though Chang doesn't fight in this entry). Yoshinori Shima, [[TheOtherDarrin his original seiyuu]] from ''[='94=]'' and ''[='95=]'', also voices Clark, Eiji, and Goenitz.
** Toshikazu Nishimura voices Chin and Heavy D! in ''[='94=]'' and ''[='98=]''. Josh Keller (who voices Chin in the dub for ''XII'') also voices Duo Lon and Kensou in the same dub.
** Hanzo has the same seiyuu as Ryo in ''[=MI2=]'', Masaki Usui, who also voices Goro Daimon.
** Lilly Kane shares [[Creator/YumiKakazu a seiyuu]] with Kula.
** Haruna Ikezawa voices Foxy in ''2001'' and ''2002 Unlimited Match'', in addition to Athena.
** Richard Meyer is voiced by Kong Kuwata, who also voices Geese Howard and Duck King.
** Eric Kelso voices Takuma, Clark and Benimaru in the English version of ''XII'' and ''XIII''.
** Monster Maezuka voices Ralf, Benimaru, and Choi.
** Masahiro Nonaka voices Kyo's [[JustifiedTrope clones]], Kyo-1 and Kyo-2. Subverted with evil, magical doppelganger Kusanagi, who is instead voiced by Creator/MitsuoIwata.
*** However, ''KOF [[BulletHell Sky Stage]]'' seems to be using Nonaka instead of Iwata for the voice of Kusanagi, which of course plays this trope straight again.
*** In ''XII'' and ''XIII'', he shares an Englsh VA (Peter von Gomm) with ''Ash'' of all people.
** King shares her seiyuu (Harumi Ikoma, who also is the announcer in ''KOF '96'', ''KOF '98'', ''KOF XI'', and ''KOF XII'') with Blue Mary. Ikoma also voiced King's [[CrossdressingVoices brother]] [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Jean/Jan]] in ''KOF: Kyo''.
** Greg Irwin voices Joe and Robert in the dub of ''XII''/''XIII''.
** Kazuhiro "Kay" Inage (who voiced Robert in ''KOF '94'' and ''[='95=]'', and returned in ''XI'') also voices Lucky. Mantaro Koichi (who voiced Robert from ''KOF '96'' to ''2003'') was also the announcer in ''[='97=]''.
*** Kay Inage also voiced [[VideoGame/FightersHistory Mizoguchi]] in ''Regulation A''. Both he and Robert are semi-shotos with a flying kick move, both have the Tiger as their AnimalMotif, and EX Robert's HSDM in ''2002: Unlimited Match'' ends with him firing a Tiger-shaped Haoh Shokoken, identical to Mizoguchi's "Tiger Bazooka Attack".
** In ''XIII'', Sonosuke Nagashiro voices both Hwa Jai and Ash (and Saiki, by extension).
* ThrowItIn: Hyena's lines were devised in a collaborative effort between the seiyuu of Hyena, Alba, and Soiree (who consequently became good friends through the experience).
** Krauser's Gigatech Cyclone was actually taken from the [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning spinning supers]] (i.e. the Senpuuken/Hadou Senpuukyaku) utilized by he and Terry in the ''VideoGame/FatalFury 2'' [[TheAnimeOfTheGame OVA]]. His [[{{Bishonen}} youthful beauty]] and lack of a mustache and [[BeautyIsNeverTarnished scars]], were not retained, despite being well recieved by some fans.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Beside the various prototype designs of characters (many of which can be seen as Strikers in ''2000''), many plot points were shafted or altered:
** Orochi Iori was originally planned to be the final boss of ''[='97=]'' (remnants of this manifest as Iori being a BonusBoss in said game if you beat Orochi with Kyo).
** Kyo and Iori were going to be dropped from ''[='99=]'' to put emphasis on K'. They became secret characters instead.
** The biggest "what if?" would have to come from ''2001''. One could only imagine what direction the series would have taken if SNK hadn't gone bankrupt after ''2000''.
** Even better, this series wasn't even originally a [[FightingGame fighting game]]; it was going to be a [[BeatEmUp beat 'em up]] in the vein of ''VideoGame/FinalFight'' and ''[[VideoGame/StreetsOfRage Streets of Rage]]'' called ''Survivor'' with Terry, Robert, and Ralf as playable characters.
** Athena's appearance in ''XII'' [[http://snk.wikia.com/wiki/File:Athena_rejected_artwork.jpg was originally conceived to be not quite as loli/moe as the final result.]] Said art would be polished and used as a promo image for ''The Rhythm of Fighters''.
** Rugal was originally planned to [[DittoFighter mirror special moves of the characters and use them against them]]. Hardware limitations killed this idea. Rugal's Reppuken, Kaiser Wave, and [[AttackReflector Dark Barrier]] are relics of this idea.
** Believe it or not, it was planned for Terry to actually ''die'' at the climax of ''[='99=]''[[note]]One of the Fatal Fury team endings give off this vibe by having Terry stay behind in the collapsing base, but TheStinger reveals that he survives[[/note]]. Luckily, head management disagreed and brought him back in ''2000'', avoiding what would have been a shocking PlayerPunch and the ensuing barrage of InternetBackdraft. However, the "what if" aspect of his death was played up for the remainder of the saga to the point that Blue Mary told Terry how his teammates ([[ShipTease or more specifically, her]]) were worried about him in the team's ''2000'' ending.
** Kim was supposed to debut in the first ''Maximum Impact'' under the alias of "Mr. Taekwondo", akin to "Mr. Karate". Instead, [[DistaffCounterpart Chae Lim]] took his place, and Kim popped up in the sequel as his good 'ol regular self. Chae Lim herself was chosen over the likes of Jhun Hoon, May Lee, and ''Buriki One'' character Seo Yong Song.
** Originally, Chang and Choi were going to be paired up with another dangerous criminal to from the "Fugitive Team". Kim was a last-minute addition, thus setting up the whole "rehabilitation" plot. [[RefittedForSequel This concept would be revisited]] for XIV, with Chang and Choi teaming with Xanadu to form the Villains team.
** King's Surprise Rose super move from ''Art of Fighting 2'' was her original DM in ''[='94=]'' but was scrapped for some reason. King's designer then came up with the Illusion Dance DM and it was well received. It was turned back into a DM in ''2002: Unlimited Match'' and ''XII''.
** Ralf (and presumably Clark) was supposed to have a moveset revolving around grenades back in his ''KOF'' debut as a ShoutOut to ''Ikari Warriors''. This was scrapped due to a possible case of [[GameBreaker game breaking mechanics]].
*** Lampshaded in the intro dialogue between Kyo and Clark in ''XIII'', wherein Clark explains that the grenades he's wearing are duds, so there's no danger of them going off if Kyo uses his fire on them.
** Heidern's moveset and their names were so strange that the designers were going to make him an alien as explanation for his "abilities." However, the lead designer became attached to the character, giving him a tragic backstory instead and keeping him as a human.
** Saisyu was supposed to have died during his EarlyBirdCameo in ''[='94=]''. His appearance in the following game was a last-minute addition.
** "Chris of the Flames of Destiny" was originally going to have black flames, but the idea was dumped as they would have been too hard to notice in his rather dark stage.
** [[FanDisservice One of Orochi's early designs was that of a naked Chris using an energy ball to attack...]]
** [[http://game.snkplaymore.co.jp/official/kof-xiii/blog/archives/2010/08/post_28.html According to the Developers' Blog]] for ''XIII'', Chang, Malin, Momoko, and Oswald were meant to be in the game. Chang was reduced to a cameo in the India stage, whereas the other three cameo in endings (the Women Fighters Team, Psycho Soldiers Team, and Ash Crimson, respectively).
*** And Chang (along with Choi) makes the customary Kim Team ending cameo.
** Vanessa was supposed to be playable in ''[='99=]'', but didn't make it in time. She makes an EarlyBirdCameo as a Striker in the ''[='99=] Evo'' console release.
** The Neo MAX supers in ''XIII'' were at first created as extensions to normal supers, but because of testing feedback they were eventually changed into stand alone supers. A few Neo MAX supers in the final build still look like they were supposed to follow up on normal supers, some of them only effective gameplay-wise when used as such.
** Adelheid was apparently meant to be playable in ''XIII'', based on some full-body and winpose sketches by Eisuke Ogura.
** If [[http://snk.wikia.com/wiki/File:Adel_and_rose_99.jpg unused]] [[http://snk.wikia.com/wiki/File:Adel_and_99_2.jpg concept]] [[http://snk.wikia.com/wiki/File:Magaki_unused.jpg art]] for ''[='98=]'' and ''[='99=]'' is any indication, it might have been intended for Adel, Rose, and Magaki to join the series as early as the NESTS Chronicles. In particular, one of Rose's prototype designs is shared with that of Whip.
** Foxy, who made her debut in ''2001'', originally wasn't meant to be playable. When it was decided that she'd be added to the roster, it was intended for Diana to join her, although this didn't pan out because of time constraints and Diana remains to this day an NPC.
** Raiden's first playable entry in the KOF series (prior to ''XIII'') was going to be in ''2003'', but the developers eventually decided on using Tizoc instead.
*** His 'Big Bear' persona was also going to appear in ''94'', but scrapped in favor of Yuri being added.
** Billy Kane was planned to be playable in ''94'' but scrapped due to limitations.
** Whip was planned to enter the series as early as ''96'', but was pushed backed till ''99'' due to Leona being introduced.
* WordOfGay: [[http://bitmob.com/articles/kof12-75-dollar-demo "[Ash]'s gay, he paints his nails, and he's awesome!"]]

!Misc. tidbits
* The Japanese version's introduction for ''[='98=]'', "Cipher", as well as the ending theme, "Zero", had a sound clip in it with rather vulgar language in it: "Pay dat shit like he just got yo motherfuckin' check and he's gonna pick it up at the bank." In all foreign releases of the game and OST releases, except for the 15th Anniversary CD, this clip has been edited out and replaced with static.
