What sets this game apart is the setting and theme. The series is set in a fictional town called [[{{Americasia}} Bronx]] (unrelated to BigApplesauce), where everyone are in fact [[PettingZooPeople anthropomorphic animals]]. All of the characters are in fact various ''kemono''. Another thing is that the Battle in the Bronx tournaments are rather benign in nature, with no malevolent TakeOverTheWorld plot usually seen in Franchise/StreetFighter or VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters (relatively speaking anyway - the first game involves DemonicPossession but mostly for selfish reasons). There is a rather casual, optimistic tone in the setting where even the character who takes training seriously is seen taking a break with friends.

** Victory Zero is a twofer. He's a barely-armored lizard, with an armor that covers his chest, shins, feet, head, and forearms, much like ''[[{{Franchise/Digimon}} WarGreymon]]''.

** DarkAndTroubledPast: However, tidbits of information can be pieced together to show that he has a rather painful past. His motivation stems from the fact that he knew military projects end up being harmful. Him being friends with Kiba, the KamenRider ShoutOut, could be connected that he was rescued by him. And then there is the case of his powerful punches and his mysterious camouflaging ability.

Added DiffLines:

* HollywoodChameleon: Somewhat subverted by Jackie. His coat is actually tailored to mimic his color change, making him look like he could teleport (he is actually moving fast while camouflaged), but this is actually "unnatural" to him and he can only do it at short intervals. His "natural" color changing can be seen when he taunts, as he makes various expressions that his body color reflects.


Added DiffLines:

* MysteriousPast: Jackie doesn't really tell much other than being a private investigator who wants to see the truth about this tournament.
