1 Iori Yagami

Just the coolest dude in town

His moves can stop anybody... Everybody

If he isn't your favorite there is something wrong with you

Iori combo is easy to use also his skill so cool

2 Kula Diamond

Cute, but powerful! She can kick anyone's ass when she gets serious

She is really fun to use and strong too.

I think kula's moves are easy to use

Kula is my girl.. OH YEAH..

3 K'

Cooler than Kyo Kusanagi

Yes his flames may harn him but due to that his chain combo potential is pretty good, also let's not forget who looks cool.

Honestly, he's really fun easy to play as, and in my opinion he beats Kyo and Ash on all fronts.

The alternate protagonist of KOF. - Allizdog

4 Benimaru Nikaido

Really easy to fight with benimaru.

He has one of the best fighting style in the history of fighting games. It is so complete and fun to play with

2 words:
Cool hair and awesome attacks

My favorite

5 Terry Bogard

Terry it's number one

Hungry wolf is the best

It's the hungry wolf

Terry and Ryo are the only fighters in the series who actually have fighting skills and not relay on their inherited super powers.. Terry defeated Ryo so he is definitely strongest

6 Kyo Kusangi

What Kyo must be the most powerful character. At least he should be placed at the 2nd rank

He is the coolest character after k' and easy to make combos

He is the strongest character in the world and he beats iori in one second

He should be number 1

7 Shermie Shermie

Interesting imagine and the most sexy/hot female character with an mysterious look

The most powerful female in KOF when she becomes orochi, also she is the most sexy of all the females!

8 Joe Higashi

One of the few characters that actually fights like a martial artist, not to mention that he very complete and has a great personality

He is a japanese guy that learns muay thai and hwa and king learns muay thai too

9 Tizoc
10 Kim Kaphwan

His moves are lightning fast and his style is different enough to be interesting

The Contenders

11 Athena Asamiya

The character that has the most outfits of all fighting series. - Allizdog

Goddess Athena Is The Full Power Of Athena And She Can Defeate Anyone By Her Powers

12 Choi
13 Leona Leona

Leona's history and internal strife against her Orochi heritage has been a very unique and intriguing trait to see amongst other female characters in the series. The other characters know that Leona may be well-disciplined and reserved, but also very deadly.

She's got one of the coolest specials in the game.

A true war machine!

What Leona is the best!

14 Sie Kensou

He deserves to be a mascot to share with Athena on psycho soldier and can learn new moves to make a good rival with Terry and kyo

Kensou even though he's strong, but dislikes training he is probably the most will powered and he won't stop until he's completedoing what he has done. He is probably the the 2 or 3 strongest charcter after terry (2nd) or after terry and iori (3rd).

Kensou has good attacks,could rival terry,kyo and lori and his popularity is off the hook. He could have rank 3rd and his powers are too much for athena. His power is like lui kang,but stronger

15 Mature

She's a hot babe!

16 Mai Shiranui Mai Shiranui Mai Shiranui is a player character in the Fatal Fury and The King of Fighters series of fighting games by SNK.

My Ninja girl favorite

She's the perfect epitome of femme fatale!

Wow she is the most hottest and pretty female fighter

The female babe in the SNK Universe. - Allizdog

She has very unique skillset and very nice desing

18 Yuri Sakazaki Yuri Sakazaki

She is powerful athena is yuck and she is not powerful because she is yuck and yuri is cool

19 Rugal


Love him or hate him, but there's no such thing as luck, when you're facing Rugal. He's still awesome.

His moves have an answer for everything and a few unique statements as well.

21 King

Not as sexy as mai but steel kickin ass

The female kick boxer. - Allizdog

22 Blue Mary

I'm so glad to play the game as mary because she's a tricky girl if you honestly try her you'll become an expert in playing as mary.
I love mary

23 Orochi

Orochi must be the best!

Epic character to play as

Fun character

He is the best

24 Igniz

With infinite combos, fast punches and kicks, super long range specials and cool desperation moves, even long time boss character Rugal cannot be compared to him. Blocking? No problem, he'll just break your guard and cancel into another special WITHOUT special gauge consumption. Oh and did I forget to mention he has invincibility frames while doing desperation moves? Ultimate badass.
"You can run, you can jump, you can block and you can even cheat, but you cannot hope to defeat Igniz"

25 Ash Crimson

The main protagonist in the Ash Saga. - Allizdog

Is she or he is a girl or boy

Really fun to play as!

Best character in my opinion

He s the best

KOF's original KOF Champion (followed by Terry and then Kyo) who originally sparked the "Dream-match" phenomenon by appearing as a secret hidden boss in Fatal Fury Special.

30 Orochi Iori

He is better than flames Iori and he is faster.

He is like an upgraded Iori!

He is unstoppable!

32 Mizuchi

Mizuchi is kinda strong and I like his projectile tips are however, he is way down orochi

33 Chizuru Kagura
