* VirginSacrifice: [[spoiler:Intended to serve as one for Orochi's resurrection, as per the real life myth (and in the ''KOF'' story, the tale of Yuki's ancestress). Note that this only fully applies to ''The King of Fighters: Kyo'': In '[='97=]'', the Orochi Team mostly needed {{life energy}} gathered from the tournament grounds in general and planned on sacrificing the winning team to revive their lord. Her situation only comes up if they're fought with the Gods Caliber Team, with Yashiro telling them that they plan to kidnap Yuki to taunt Kyo.]]

** DemotedToExtra: While she isn't the most important character to start with, Ryo Takamisaki's ''KOF: G'' has poor Yuki only ''in one scene at the beginning''. Also qualifies as borderline DerailingLoveInterests: said scene [[{{Flanderization}} makes her few more]] than a ClingyJealousGirl opposing Athena [[MistakenForCheating over Kyo]], and once Kyo explains everything and Yuki relents, she's [[PutOnABus not seen through the rest of the story]].

* HiddenDepths: According to ''KOF: KYO'', she's an excellent keyboardist. Her skill's enough to have Athena, a professional IdolSinger, ask her to play keyboards for her in a SchoolFestival.



* MeaningfulName: [[spoiler:{{Fanon}} usually gives Yuki the surname Kushinada due to her ancestry. If this ''is'' true, it hearkens to Kushinada-hime, the eighth maiden Orochi was planning on eating.]] Either way, her role in the story correlates to the Orochi legend.

* SmoochOfVictory: Subverted in the Shonjyouji manga. After [[spoiler:Kyo rescues her from Rugal's DeadlyGame]], she tries to give him one while [[spoiler:crying due to [[BreakTheCutie the terrifying stress]] that the deal brought her.]] However Kyo gently [[FingerMuzzle places a finger over her lips]], smiles sadly and tells her [[spoiler:he's not worthy of a kiss from her since she was kidnapped in an attempt to lure him out and force him to fight.]] She understands his reasons and doesn't insist, only watching him walk away.

* DeathByOriginStory: Thanks to Goenitz's MoralEventHorizon, Leona was deprived of her parents... ''[[SelfMadeOrphan by her own hands]]''. Granted, it was MoreThanMindControl, but still.

-> An OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent and Kyo's girlfriend. She also has the bad luck of [[spoiler: being the last descendant of Princess Kushinada, the famous BarrierMaiden of the Orochi legend]], so during ''KOF '97'' she's kidnapped by the New Faces Team [[spoiler: so she can be sacrificed in the ritual to bring Orochi back]]; luckily, she's rescued by Kyo and his team. She only had cameos in the proper games, but had her role expanded in the ''KOF: Kyo'' RPG and manga, as well as the CD dramas. Finally, ''VideoGame/SNKGalsFighters'' made her a playable character.

** LadyAndKnight: [[spoiler:Informal example. Yuki isn't a princess but she ''is'' the descendant of the SoleSurvivor from the Eight Kushinada Maidens; Kyo is ''pissed off'' when told about that by Yashiro, and in the end he's asked to protect her by the spirit of the Yasakani.]]
** LongDistanceRelationship and LovedINotHonorMore: As of ''XIII'', their relationship seems to have settled on this. In NESTS!Kyo's pre-fight talks with Athena, she tells him that he shouldn't push himself too hard and that everyone back at home love and support him, and Kyo guesses that Yuki asked Athena to tell him such things.

-> An Athena fangirl who is stuck in a wheelchair and very depressed, but regains the will to live and walk thanks to seeing Athena in a TV concert. She sends Athena the letter that motivates her and Kensou to ask Chin forfeit his veto to them going to the 1997 tournament. Kaoru joins up with them at the end of the tournament, starts getting better physically speaking, and ever since then she works as their aidé, taking care of Bao and their Temple when they're not around. She also appears as a Striker in ''KOF 2000''.

* ApologeticAttacker: IDidWhatIHadToDo: [[spoiler:In ''KOF:KYO'', Kusanagi was NOT happy to keep Yasakani prisoner after attempting to betray him, but did it anyway since he didn't have other options. It's not like it worked, since Orochi ''still'' managed to reach for Yasakani.]]
