I recently discovered an album that has been sampled in many videogames. Can you help identify more?

It all started when I was playing Metal Wolf Chaos XD. I'm fighting the final boss and to focus on not dying to pay attention to anything else. I end up dying and in that brief moment between dying and reloading, I hear it. "Radical rebel with a need to bomba". Those lyrics hit me and trigger something in my memory. I know those lyrics. Where do I know those lyrics? I had to stop playing and lay in my bed. I tried to think. What is the rest of that verse? What does the music sound like? I narrow it down to something from a fighting game, a song that was made by Capcom. Then I remember. Capcom released "Street Fighter III: New Generation Original Arrange Album" which featured remixes of the game music. Within the song, "Tomboy" is where I found my lyrics. Finding it gave off a wave of enjoyment for something so simple. But that just sparked me to find where those lyrics originated.

At the time, in August of 2019, a quick Google search leads to some interesting results. One result was the song "Put Your Faith In Me", another video game song. More searches lead me to this old Reddit post by u/Kn7ght containing a whole list of songs with just this one sample. My search for the sample would end shortly after with me sending a direct message to u/Kn7ght stating the sample was used in Metal Wolf Chaos XD.

I began to think about those lyrics again recently and I started my Google search again and found this youtube video. I thought it was interesting how it was just vocals, but searching the youtube channel lead to nothing. I then googled "Masterbits Climax 9: RAPsody". That is when I found the youtube playlist Masterbits CLIMAX 9 Rapsody (Vocals ll). I believe I finally found my source of the sample within the song Drama.

Listening to the whole album lead me to find a couple of other samples I recognized. I'll try my best with what I know to document some of the samples. If you know any, please feel free to help out. I'm skipping the first song "Demo Song" as it features many samples from the rest of the album.
