According to former Capcom artist Katsuya Akitomo, the game's final boss Kingpin was originally so big he filled half the screen. This was shot down by Capcom who said that "he's a regular human, he can't be that big", and so he was made smaller.

When the game's general planner and visual designer Akira "Akiman" Nishitani told Katsuya Akitomo about this, he pointed out that there have been times where the Kingpin has been drawn as an incredibly large figure in the comics, citing examples such as 1986's Daredevil: Love & War. This bummed Akira Nishitani out.
