Players never get to face the villain behind the lame cloning plot of The King of Fighters M2, but the "Shadow Creature", as he is referred to, looks awfully familiar....
Applies to: K9999 King of Fighters M2, The
K9999 is in many ways (read: every way) a homage to Tetsuo Shima, a main character from the anime/manga AKIRA. The two characters even share the same voice actor (Nozomu Sasaki). It is widely suspected this connection led to K9999's replacement by the head-swap Nameless in KoF'02 Ultimate Match.

Kanzaki Ryu Sto Ou Len
Karin's original debut was not in SFA3, but a Sakura side-story manga called Sakura Ganbaru by Masahiko Nakahira. This makes her the only character in all of SF not created by Capcom.

Snooping through the spritesets of Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter reveal that Karin was supposed to appear in the game - about a year prior to her video game debut in Street Fighter Alpha 3. Her sprite here, however, is a head-and-feet swap of Sakura.

Karate Oxfighter
In Data East's genre-starting Karate Champ, a bonus stage involves striking a charging bull. This is most likely the origin of the bonus battle with Ox in Fighter's History Dynamite.

Credit must be given, however, to the true innovator of punching bulls, karate master Mas Oyama.

The first actual sequel to the original Street Fighter was actually Street Fighter 2010: The Final Fight for the NES/Famicom.

Killer Name
Seth's name was initially thought to have basis of his residency in Egypt (which turned out to be rumor), after the evil Egyptian deity Set/Seth. Another rumored name origin stems from the fact that he is essentially Abel's brother, and Seth was the name of the biblical Cain and Abel's brother. While this may hold some water in-universe, Seth is ac...

This love of his life is a Gear referred to only as "the maiden of the grove." So, Dizzy. ...

Much of MK4's newcomer cast originally started as returning characters, but they were replaced by pastiches to give the cast more new faces. Of note is the replacing of Kitana with Tanya; either Kitana was replaced late in development, or Eurocom (the company responsible for the home ports) designed a palette swap of Kitana for the home versions th...

Kohaku can be seen stuck on a wall on Miyako's stage. This stage can be fought after the G-Akiha battle in Story Mode depending on which route your playing.
