Did you know?

You say arigatou, like we say arigatou!
Takuma is rather blatantly based on Japanese actor Shinichi "Sonny" Chiba. Most notably is his given name, which comes from Takuma Tsurugi, Chiba's character in the film "The Street Fighter". The fighting art of Kyokugen Karate is a direct parody of Kyokushinkai Karate, which was created by Masutatsu Oyama, one of Chiba's real-life sensei, who Chiba also portrayed in a series of films.
Reduced Roster
According to some leftover data on the home version discs, The King of Fighters XII originally would have had Mai, Yuri, King, Vice, Takuma, Hwa Jai, "Billy", a "Dark" Ash, and a KoF '98 version of Iori, as well as a boss of unknown identity. KoF XII was well-known to have been rushed through development, so these characters all obviously got the axe due to budget and time constraints. Further supporting this is the fact that all of these characters made it info KoF XIII eventually (counting the home version).
