  • 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.
