  • The Lads - chants and sound FX


  • This is, by far, the shortest KI soundtrack overall, ranging at only 40 minutes, 25 seconds.
  • The themes of Orchid, Maya and Combo, respectively, are the official credits themes for all versions of Killer Instinct 2 (including the Gold version released for the Nintendo 64).
  • This is the only soundtrack where the character themes are titled by the names of those involved in the KI2 roster.
  • The theme of the secret Sky Stage in KI2/Gold is not included in this soundtrack, nor is it even officially titled. This marks the first KI soundtrack where a stage's theme is not included.
    • Also, this marks the first secret stage theme not represented in an OST (the original game had secret stages, but they've mostly had themes based on certain characters (except the Chicago Alley stage, which had the track "Freeze" as the main theme)).
