  • Tracks 16-29 are blank tracks lasting four seconds each (56 seconds in total) that lead into the hidden track 30, "Humiliation" (0:39).


  • Robin Beanland composes most of the tracks on the album, while Graeme Norgate is credited on tracks 3, 4, 6, and 7
    • Beanland also arranges most of the tracks, while Norgate arranges tracks 1, 3, 4, 6, and 7
  • "K.I. Feeling" and "The Way U Move" features uncredited vocals by Faye Newborough
  • "The Way U Move" features uncredited vocals by Chris Sutherland
  • "Oh Yeah" features uncredited vocals by Ken Lobb


  • Despite being official tracks, the songs "The Way U Move" and "It's A Jungle" are not included in the original arcade version of Killer Instinct, nor the SNES version (and to an extent, the Game Boy version).
    • However, years later, "The Way U Move" would serve as the credits theme of the 2013 reboot game.
      • Also, "It's A Jungle" would be added as part of the reboot's practice mode, where the players can choose backgrounds for the training stage along with the themes represented in Killer Cuts-style-order, as shown here.
  • The second half of Eyedol's theme, "The Extreme", is the official credits theme for all versions of the original Killer Instinct, as well as the main theme "The Instinct".
    • Unfortunately, "The Instinct" was excluded from the credits of the Game Boy version, due to data storage issues.
  • The song "Freeze" is the only stage theme that does not (specifically) belong to any character on the original roster.
