Before the match begins, if Sakura and Yuri are about to fight, Yuri does a parody of Felicia's intro from "Vampire Savior" where she raises her hand in a surprised position and says 'Osu' (karate greeting). Sakura bows responding 'Pleased To Meet You'.

The game contains six grooves that you can select. There are three from Capcom and three from SNK. Interesting enough the Capcom grooves put together spell out CAP and SNK spells out SNK. Each groove came from a specific game in each company's series...
• C Groove : From "Street Fighter Alpha 3"'s A-ism. Powers up to three level and you can variate the strength of your super depending if you hit LP/LK (Weak), MP/MP (Middle), and HP/HK (Strong).
• A Groove : A combination of "Street Fighter Alpha 3"'s V-ism and "Super Street Fighter II Turbo"'s system. The main draw of this groove is the custom combos.
• P Groove : From "Street Fighter III - Third Strike"'s engine. The main feature of the groove is the parry technique.
• S Groove : From "The King of Fighters 94" to 96, in KOF97 & 98 it's under the Extra system. You can either charge up the super meter by being attacked or by using HP & HK to charge it. When your life is low you can perform more powerful supers.
• N Groove : From "The King of Fighters 97" & 98 under the Advanced system. This groove allows you to initiate a MAX status at a cost of one charged meter. During the MAX status your offense and defense strength increase and at a cost of one charged meter you can perform the strongest super.
• K Groove : From "Samurai Showdown". This groove allows you to go into a 'rage' mode once your meter fills up. The meter can only fill when you are hit or block an opponent's attack. Also, the groove has a 'Just Defended' action where you block just as the attack hits you. This is most likely from "Garou - Mark of the Wolves".

The Osaka stadium stage is based on the real life Nagai Stadium in Osaka, Japan.

The floats in the background of the Aomori stage resemble E.Honda (on the left), Haohmaru (on the right), and Kyoshiro (from the Samurai Shodown series)

Cameo Apperances :
• Aomori : Goro Daimon (from The King of Fighters) can be seen banging drums
• London : Dudley (along with his butler), Elena (from Street Fighter III), Carman Cole (from Art of Fighting 3), Billy & Lilly Kane (from Fatal Fury), Mei-Ling (from Red Earth), and Rose (from Street Fighter Alpha) can be seen in the background.
• Nairobi : Rouge (from the Power Stone) & Leona (from The King of Fighters) are on top of a car. Alex (from Street Fighter III), Fokker (from Power Stone), Ralf Jones, Clark Steel, and Heidern (from The King of Fighters) can be seen behind the car. Goro Daimon also appears to watch the battle when Kyo fights Benimaru in-game.
• Shanghai : Hsien-Ko (from Darkstalkers), June (from Star Gladiator), Xiang Fei (from Fatal Fury), Shermie, Chin Gentsai, and Bao (from The King of Fighters) can be seen throughout the rotating arena. Goro Daimon also appears to watch the battle when Kyo fights Benimaru in-game.

UPDATES

Capcom vs SNK 2 may have been one of those games that were unwilling victims of terror-related censorship in the US. Then again, it could have been planned all along for the US version. Whatever it is, here's an interesting tidbit : For the US versions, all references to gods or genocide is removed. What does that mean? God Rugal was referred to as Ultimate Rugal in the English version. Rugal's Genocide Cutter and Sagat's Tiger Genocide also had minor name changes (Although the Tiger Destroyer sounds the same as before, calling a move the Destroyer Cutter is rather stupid IMO).

TIPS AND TRICKS

• Fight Mini-Bosses : Satisfy all of the following conditions...
1. Get at least 800 points.
2. Never get hit by more than 5 first hits in any match.
3. Have at least 2 CC finish or Super finish.
Geese/Vega will appear after the 4th match (the match before the final round).

• Finest KO : To obtain a finest KO, satisfy one of the following...
1. Counter a super move with a special move.
2. Counter a special move with a level 3 super.
3. Counter a super move with a super move.
4. Finish an opponent with a level 3 super who is taunting.
For 2. & 3., one can start with any normal/special move that counter the special/super move, as long as the finishing hit is the level 3 super, Finest KO will appear.
