In an interview with Polygon, the series lead Director, Katsuhiro Harada, confirmed that King's motion capture was performed by Japanese pro-wrestling star and MMA pioneer, Minoru Suzuki. The wrestling star made King's fighting style with a mix of Mexican lucha libre and Japanese puroresu. Harada also said that Suzuki also invented original moves for King and Michelle (as well as Julia in future games). Harada also says that Suzuki also offered to choke him out, to which he said "Yeah, of course dude, I want you to choke me out" and that "it felt like taking a refreshing nap."

King's backstory was inspired by Sergio Gutiérrez Benítez, a catholic priest who moonlit as the masked wrestler Fray Tormenta to raise funds for his orphanage, while the character's jaguar mask design was inspired by Tiger Mask, a recurring masked persona first portrayed in real-life by mixed martial artist Satoru Sayama, and a character licensed out to Japanese professional wrestling companies from the 1968 manga of the same name by Ikki Kajiwara.

Sneak King
Sneak King's early motion capture test animations were considered unsatisfactory by Burger King. It was eventually figured out that the actor could successfully mimic the King from the commercials by wearing the authentic head used in commercials and being weighed down by it. The developers of Sneak King played with the head when it first arrived, imitating the sneaking actions from the game, not realizing that it was the only Burger King head ever made, and though no damage was made to the head, they were still scolded for using it as a toy.
