* DownloadableContent: The Dreamcast version of ''Dyanmite Cop'' got one in the form of the Detonator Pack, known as the Elements of Deka Pack in Japanese. This DLC adds Cindy Holiday[=/=]Kris Thompson as an alternate costume for Jean Ivy, and also serves to update the existing game to its revised arcade counterpart in Japan, ''Dynamite Deka 2.1''. Has sadly become PermanentlyMissableContent with the Dreamcast's death, outside of alternative methods.

* SequelTheOriginalTitle: An odd inversion. Some arcade cabinets for the second game bear the title "Die Hard 2: Dynamite Cop", though the game itself still just used ''Dynamite Cop''.

* DieHardOnAnX: Well yeah, the first game ''was'' inspired by ''Die Hard'' and just meant to use Expies of the characters. SEGA manage to get the rights to legit make it a tie-in to ''Die Hard'' (despite only barely resembling the film in terms of story i.e a building and terrorists taking it over). The second game is pretty much ''Die Hard on a Cruise Ship'' and the third is ''Die Hard in a Asian District''.

** The first game that was released for Saturn-based system ST-V. As Bruno Delinger and Cindy Holiday, you're on mission to rescue the president's daughter, Caroline Powell, from terrorists led by Wolf "White Fang" Hongo. For the international debut, Sega decided to tie it with then-popular action flim ''Franchise/DieHard'', which also happened to be about terrorists seizing skyscraper. Outside DubNameChange, nothing else was changed to match it to the film.

** The second game developed for more advanced Sega Model 2 system. Once again, the president's daughter has been kidnapped by a band of modern-day pirates. Bruno Delinger, joined by other allies Jean Ivy and Eddie Brown, must fight through levels on board a cruise ship and a deserted island to save her.

** Informally a sequel, but in terms of gameplay it's a remixed version of ''Deka 2'' with a wacky Asian theme and several changes on the gameplay mechanics (for instance, instead of being an ImprobableWeaponUser, the player characters can transform into different characters with their own fighting styles by picking up items). This time, Bruno is joined by a grown-up Caroline Powell as well as the newcomer Jennifer Genuine in fighting through Asian-themed stages. Only released in Japan and Asia (where in Asia it's only referred to as "Asian Dynamite"), and didn't receive port to any home system.

Because of TitleConfusion between the English versions, the individual game will be referred to as the Japanese ones, in a way like ''Deka 1'', ''Deka 2'', and ''EX''.
