Hair Metal
Millia is named after the metal band Meliah Rage. Her overdrive "Winger" and instant kill "Iron Maiden" both share their names with metal groups.

Another likely reference is her move "Iron Savior," which is close to Iron Saber, a Helloween side project--Helloween features in some other GG references.

Applies to: Millia Rage

Heart of Steel
In Last Blade 2, Shigen is accompanied by his daughter Kotetsu. She can be made "playable" by entering a code and selecting Shigen, but it's simply an elaborate joke intro pose (Shigen comes out and pushes her aside).

Her Majesty's Secret Substitution
"Yuri is a disciple of Kyokugen Karate but her appearances in the KOF series are frequently as a member of the women fighters' team.

Hidden Chameleon
The Genesis version of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 has Chameleon tucked away in the coding. Obviously unfinished, he has Scorpion's sprites, no special moves, no finishing moves, and the only combos he has are jump-in combos. Using the 1 button Finishing Moves cheat gives him access to a Stage Fatality and Scorpion's Friendship. If certain Fatalities ...

How Come Everybody Wanna Keep It Like the Kaizer?
After beating all the playable characters in Burning Fists you're treated to a brief cinema of a non-existant boss, Kaizer. The apparently incomplete Kaizer was most likely hacked out of the game by Good Deal in order to get it working (such as it is).

Bonus videos on the game disc reveal a similarly cut animated intro and character endings ...

Applies to: Burning Fists: Force Striker
It's well known that Hugo is a pastiche of Andre the Giant. Alex seems to have something going on with him in regards to Hulk Hogan. Alex and Hugo have a special into together in SF3: Third Strike, that mirrors the legendary sizing up provocation between Andre and Hulk.
Applies to: Alex Hugo Street Fighter 3: Third Strike

The "Ladder" in his bio is likely a reference...
