The original members of the England Team were King (Art of Fighting), Billy Kane (Fatal Fury Special), and Big Bear (Fatal Fury 2), since all three were English. However, after the release of Art of Fighting 2, the development team decided to make an all-female team, replacing Billy and Bear with Yuri Sakazaki from Art of Fighting 2 and Mai Shiranui from Fatal Fury 2.

Billy would later become playable in the sequel, while Big Bear would appear much later in The King of Fighters XII as his alter-ego Raiden.
