Namco's Outfoxies has seven different 8x8 fonts, in addition to the standard Namco arcade font, which just seems like showing off.

The first four are complete, the latter three are  missing a lot of punctuation.  Also, weirdly, there was a duplicate of the standard Namco font in the game with a different set of "quotation marks".  One was vertical, one was curved.  I didn't bother pulling them out.

I didn't bother adding colour variations, the original game stuck more or less to red, green and white.  You can use the CS (Colour Shift) command in the PHP script to add colour to them yourself.  For example, #1 above is white, which is invisible on this page, so I added CS-128.-200.-200 (+128 Red, -200 Green, -200 Blue) to the URL so it'd be red instead.

And because I felt like being sort of productive, here are some more King of Fighters fonts, 2000-2003.  There's quite a difference between them, and '97 wasn't really similar either.  SNK really liked to put the effort into their latter flagship titles.  Even if it was Eolith, not SNK, and what's the difference really?  ;)

Very unusually, KoF 2000 loses the shadows where the lower case character set is.  They're not actually lower case, but an alternate set of shadow-free caps.  It makes it look funny in use, so be sure to stick to one or the other when using this font.

2001 is, for all intents, a 5-pixel-high font.  It uses 2 pixels for the outline, and has one spare to provide space between lines of text.  That's very unusual to give away so much space.  The other fonts are much more traditional, with your standard sizes and shadows.

KoF '94 is the same as Last Resort, and '95-'99 are all the same as '97.

Two new fonts added today, a rather lovely little number from Tatakae Big Fighter, and a balls-out fuck-you of a font from Nichibutsu's Sky Fox.  Quite what the hell a shooting bikini-babes on snakes in space game needs with a script font this ornate is beyond me.  I can't even.

These fonts totally look better on a dark background.  go play with them on the font engine and see what I mean.

For some reason I never checked out Parodius DA! until today.  There are two fonts in here, one chunky little number and one Gradius-alike.

Namco's Ordyne has a neat little font, a slightly puffy design with a jaunty little lean at the top.

Saboten Bombers is chunky and competent, but the lower case characters are a bit weak.

Two new ones added today:

I almost didn't include Bakuretsu Breaker because, while it looks decent enough in-game, it looks fairly rough up close. 

I'd wager that the font was created from a higher res source, downsized via algorithm.  What appears to be a small font with a two-colour shadow is actually an automatically-aliased downsampling, resulting in misshapen characters and odd pixel placements.

Acrobat Mission is fairly unremarkable, with a simple texture in all but the lower case characters.  Only one colour, unfortunately.

You can't see it, white on white doesn't really lend itself to clarity, but SNK's SAR - Search and Rescue:
