The Chicago Rooftop (also known as Chicago's Rooftop, Orchid's Rooftop, or City Rooftop (in Chicago)) is a stage from the original Killer Instinct. It is Black Orchid's primary stage.

Description

True to its namesake, this stage is taken place at night on a helipad atop a high-rise building in Chicago. In the original arcade version, there are two separate jumbotrons: one that shows the video from the game's original intro that promotes the "Ultra 64" (which, unfortunately, was never released by the time this game came out in 1994), and the other that shows live footage of the characters fighting.

However, due to hardware limitations, the footage and the videos on the jumbotrons (and even the jumbotrons themselves) have been replaced with a billboard(?) showing one of three things: the Nintendo logo (the name of the game's original publishers), the Rareware logo (the (original) name of the game's original developers), and the KI logo.

Knockoff (Stage Ultra)

The winner can knock the loser off of the building, and they are sent careening at top speed until they violently crash unto a parked, pink lowrider vehicle with flame decals.

The SNES version, however, instead bounces the loser off the lowrider and onto the pavement.

Music

The stage's theme, "K.I. Feeling", is composed by Robin Beanland and features Faye Newborough on vocals. This theme is critically acclaimed by fans to be one of the best and instantly recognizable character tracks on Killer Cuts, and continues to be to this day.
