- Originally, the developers stated that Lilly's relationship with Joe wasn't a serious one. Joe was only hitting on her during his ending and it was meant to be a comical moment with Billy. However, there may be more between the couple since the pachislot and novel imply that they care for one another. This however, may have all broken down since KOF XIII, if the Fatal Fury Team's ending in that game is to be taken into account, and Billy's more-than-usual hostility towards him in KOF XIV. Their relationship seems rekindled however in KOF XV where she was stated to be actually willing to go out with Joe on a date, only for this to fail again due to unforeseen circumstances, and Billy filling in on the aborted date to bash Joe's head in as usual.
