The game forbids the initials 'SEX' on the high score table. If you try, it gets changed to 'HKD'.

The music may seem familiar since the Japan-only Rockman Memories series uses the same music in some stages.

Victor Entertainment released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Rockman 2 - The Power Fighters : Capcom Game Soundtrack - VICL-2173) on 21/09/1996.
