Top 10 King of Fighters Characters


The Top Ten

1 Iori Yagami

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

Just the coolest dude in town

2 Kula Diamond

She is really fun to use and strong too.

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

Kula is my girl.. OH YEAH..

I think kula's moves are easy to use

3 K'

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

He is coolest and already undefeatable

Nothing is more fun than k',he is dark hero and attitude is the absolute best!

In my opinion k' is the greatest of k,o,f characters specially k' is greater than iori and kyo and all the bosses,but I think k,o,f needs to improve k',he should be the face character instead of iori&kyo or any other.I don't know that why jhoon noon misused a lot of episodes but he is ten times better than kim or andy

4 Benimaru Nikaido

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

Really easy to fight with benimaru.

2 words:
Cool hair and awesome attacks

My favorite

5 Terry Bogard

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

Terry Bogard, The Hero of Fatal Fury. He has his own fighting style. He was raised in the streets of the city and that made him so tough. He is better than Kyo Kusanagi ( the school boy ) and clones like K etc. and he has a winning streak as well.

The coolest player in the series and the most acessible. The original King of Fighters hero (Art of Fighting and it's sequels didn't take place during King of Fighters tournaments, but Fatal Fury and Fatal Fury 2 did. )

Terry it's number one

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

Beaten iori numerous times

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 Tizoc
9 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

10 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

The Contenders

11 Kim Kaphwan

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

12 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!

13 Choi
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 Mai Shiranui Mai Shiranui

She's the perfect epitome of femme fatale!

Wow she is the most hottest and pretty female fighter

My Ninja girl favorite

Sexyest video game character ever

17 Elisabeth Blanctorche Elisabeth Blanctorche

She has very unique skillset and very nice desing

18 Yuri Sakazaki Yuri Sakazaki

I love her, she's so funny and entertaining to use!

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.

This is my greatest player in I love him

20 Chris

I love when he transforms into orochi because I love orochi! lol

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 strongest he can possess iroi and make him go berserk and Leona too

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!

He steals a the power and win in KOF 2012

27 Ryo Sakazaki

One of the best Karate fighters in video game history and Legendary SNK and KOF hero!

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.

28 Orochi Iori

He is better than flames Iori and he is faster.

He is like an upgraded Iori!

29 K9999

Dril power

30 Zero

Which Zero? Original or Clone?

He is unstoppable!

31 Mizuchi

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

32 Chizuru Kagura
33 Goenitz
34 Whip Whip

Her whip attacks are awesome. She's the one that I have fun playing with the most.

35 Ramon
36 Chin

Good character

37 Malin
38 Takuma Sakazaki
39 Lin

This guy is badass but why did KOF decided to get rid of him?

40 Geese Howard

The Evil Fighter, Fierce Grappler, Crime Boss and Our Worst Nightmare
Please vote him for the Top 2, guys. Thank You!
- Marc Tezon

41 Angel

Unique style of attack

42 Adelheid Bernstein

What's wrong with you people Adelheid is a KOF winner in the 11 game

43 Maxima

The best cyborg ever and he's my favorite canadian in gaming history

He's BIG, he's CANADIAN AND HE HAS SIDEBURNS! You can't beat the sheer awsomness of the haoken busting, person throwing m4 vapour cannon!

44 Robert Garcia

Robert should be at least number 5. He has higher and better combos than Ryo. He is good both on air and land.

45 Magaki

Very good character, my favorite.
