Characters / The King of Fighters

As many tropers know, The King of Fighters contains Loads and Loads of Characters. This will be a HUGE project, possibly remaining a WIP for several thousands of years to come. Here is a list of EVERY CHARACTER in the series, including the crossover characters.

Characters are listed in alphabetical order of last names. It should be noted that all the Chinese and Korean character names are rendered in the Western style (given name-surname rather than surname-given name).

Due to size problems, this page has now been split. Please put new relevant characters and their related tropes in the new pages linked below. For the sake of simplicity, characters debuting in The King of Fighters '94 will be listed in the Rugal Saga page and so on.

Please refer to the Fatal Fury and Art of Fighting character pages for tropes applying to alternate incarnations of characters that also appear in this series.

    Unorthodox Team-up 
These teams are likely to be possible to amount in only one or a few games, they are not predetermined by the character select interface, it depends on the player's knowledge of their background to be aware of their existence; the only traits preventing these teams to be considered random, is that they have ending sequences, or a music track, or special quotes of their own.
