* BigBad: Wolf Hongo is the mastermind behind the terrorists taking control of the skyscraper. He later returns in the sequel leading a group of pirates who take over a cruise ship.


** 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 (in Asia, it's only referred to as "Asian Dynamite"), and didn't receive a port to any home system.

* ShoutOut: In the Sega Ages 2500 version of the first game, on Easy Mode, there's an item that, if picked up, turns Bruno into [[VideoGame/GoldenAxe Ax Battler]] and Cindy into Tyris Flare. If either character is transformed, one of the bosses is subsequently turned into Death Adder, and the main theme from ''Golden Axe'' plays during the fight.


* KilledOffscreen: The penultimate boss the second and third games is a MasterOfDisguise / Shapeshifter who has pulled a KillAndReplace on the heroes' superior.

* 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.

* 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''.
