Starting Roster

    Athena Asamiya 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character_athena1.png
Voiced by Haruna Ikezawa

A high school pop-star and long-time member of Team Psycho Soldier in the King of Fighters tournaments. As a singer and martial artist, she is passionate and hardworking but can be a bit of a crybaby at times.

  • Butt-Monkey: Out of all the jokes made of the heroines, most of it is made at the expense of poor Athena.
  • Idol Singer: That's a given.
  • Magical Girl: She's always had this going on to some degree, but her new costume takes it even further. With her psychic powers, she does technically qualify as one.

    Kula Diamond 
Voiced by Yumi Kakazu

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character_kula1.png
A former member of NESTS, a criminal organization that genetically engineered her to be able to create and manipulate ice. A side effect of her genetic manipulation is that she has a child-like personality, being innocent as a babe and as sweet as the candies she enjoys.

  • An Ice Person: Wouldn't be Kula without lots and lots of ice.
  • Whole Costume Reference: One of her outfits is just Angel's. Of course Angel has no problem being provocative in her mode of dress so this naturally off-puts Kula.

    Mai Shiranui 
Voiced by Ami Koshimizu
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character_mai1.png
Heiress to the Shiranui-ryu style of ninjutsu and insanely head-over-heels for fellow student Andy Bogard. She uses a combination of ninja techniques and flame control. She is an excellent cook, but also a bit of a snob.

    Nakoruru 
Voiced by Mai Nakahara
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character_nakoruru1.png
A shrine maiden for the Ainu tribe of northern Japan. She is a kind woman who is a pacifist at heart, but if mother nature is in danger, she will not hesitate to bear her sword and her pet hawk Mamahaha on her foes. Originally the female lead of the Samurai Shodown series before making a canonical appearance in The King of Fighters XIV.

  • Drama-Preserving Handicap: As a Nature Spirit, Nakoruru is able to cross through time and space freely whenever she senses mother nature being threatened, but she is unable to escape from the pocket dimension for some reason. Because of this, she's forced to participate in the tournament like everyone else.
  • Innocently Insensitive: She happily tells Athena that she will always cheer her on... even if she's a third-rate idol.
  • Vampires Are Sex Gods: One of her costumes (as shown here) is that of a skimpy vampire outfit. To take it further, her sword has been turned into an oddly shaped cross while Mamahaha has been turned into a bat.

    Leona Heidern 
Voiced by Seiko Yoshida
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character_leona1.png
Adopted daughter of the military commander Heidern, who found her as an orphan after her Orochi blood lead to the death of her tribe. She fights using the assassination techniques learned from her surrogate father. She is also very taciturn and stoic.

  • Cat Girl: One of her costumes.
  • The Comically Serious: Leona puts on arguably the straightest face ever while wearing some of the most revealing outfits in the game.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: With Shermie. She hasn't forgotten how she and her other teammates forced her to enter the Riot of Blood at the end of KOF '97. Shermie's attempts in making her give into the Riot of Blood again doesn't help either.

    Yuri Sakazaki 
Voiced by Ai Kakuma
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character_yuri2.png
A student of Kyokugenryu Karate, alongside her elder brother Ryo. She is a rambunctious tomboy who hopes to use her fighting style, a combination of Kyokugenryu Karate and her own techniques, to support her dojo.

  • Her Code Name Was "Mary Sue": Her ending. She dreams the events of Art of Fighting, except she and Ryo have switched roles. Ryo is the one who is kidnapped and she goes into Southtown to save him.
  • Never Live It Down: In-Universe. Several of the other characters remark on how Yuri is always a kidnapping target, despite the fact that she was only kidnapped once. She doesn't seem to mind, thinking that it shows how irresistibly cute she is.

    Shermie 
Voiced by Erina Seto
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character_shermie2.png
A fashion model and part-time keyboardist for a band who, like Leona, also has Orochi blood. She is an acrobatic fighter with powerful grappling techniques who loves to fluster her opponents with her flirtatious taunting.

  • Back from the Dead: Shermie did recall she died in 1997, she came back and was able to participate due to Verse's defeat in XIV releasing her soul and the rest of the New Face Team members. None of her former opponents bats an eye on this and were just glad she's back after being missing so long, with the exception of Leona since she did not forget that was Shermie and her two friends Yashiro and Chris who made her enter the Riot of Blood at the end of KOF '97. This is even lampshaded by Mai.
    "Huh? Didn't you die back in... um, 97? Was that an illusion or trick or something?"
  • The Corrupter: She wastes no time attempting to tempt Leona into giving in to her Orochi blood. Thankfully, Leona isn't having any of that.
  • Easily Forgiven: A lot seemed to forget her status as a Hakesshu and treated her like an old friend that will certainly never repeat her old plot in reviving Orochi again.
  • Hidden Eyes: We never see her eyes.
  • Pretender Diss: While she's playful about it, Shermie doesn't seem to believe that Fem!Terry is the real deal.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Out of everyone trapped in the pocket dimension, she is clearly the most sinister. Though time will tell if she and her teammates plan on resurrecting Orochi again in the future.
  • Unexplained Recovery: The game doesn't bother explaining anything about how she's alive again, but taking into account that the events of SNK Heroines happen a few months after those occurred in KOF XIV and as the defeat of Verse liberated the souls of all the warriors who were defeated in the past inside him, it is logical to think that she and the rest of the New Faces Team were included in the list of those who were absorbed by Verse at that time after his death in KOF' 97.

    Sylvie Paula Paula 
Voiced by mio
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character_sylvie1.png
A former NESTS agent, similar to Kula. Unlike Kula, she was deemed a failure when the experiments that granted her control over lightning made her mentally unbalanced and unable to control her powers. She dresses in flamboyant and eye-catching outfits to compensate for her fear of rejection.

    Zarina 
Voiced by Ayumi Fujimura
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character_zarina2.png
A dancer and caporeia fighter, and a fun-loving girl whose honest nature endears her to others.

  • Cloudcuckoo Lander: Very airheaded and mistakenly believes that Terry was a girl to begin with.
  • Latino Is Brown: She's the only character to hail from Latin America-Colombia to be exact. And fittingly, she's the only brown-skinned character in the cast.

    Love Heart 
Voiced by Toa Yukinari
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character_love1.png
Leader of the Peace Sky Pirates. She is a capable fighter who can keep a cool head in the heat of battle, but also has a girly side that she prefers to keep under wraps.

  • Absolute Cleavage: Goes braless with her police uniform, which bares this and most of her stomach.
  • Fair Cop: Dressed skimpily like a policewoman in her regular outfit.
  • Girls With Mustaches: Wears one in her cowgirl outfit. Like her hair, it's purple.
  • She's Got Legs: Her police uniform bares her legs.

    Mian 
Voiced by Ayuka
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character_mian1.png
A Siuchanese opera performer whose skills in combat are formidable. She tends to come off as standoffish and rude, but in truth, she is actually very shy.

  • Chinese Girl: Just look at her!
  • Greed: Despite her situation, she seems to be looking to find more ways to get more money. She criticises Kukri not for dragging her and the others into the pocket world, but for wasting it on that instead of using it as a business. She also briefly considers making money off of Terry's new appearance.

    Luong 
Voiced by Chika Kino
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character_luong1.png
A taekwondo practitioner under the tutelage of Kim Kaphwan.

  • Ambiguously Bi: She openly hits on the other girls in her winning quotes and even admits that she wouldn't mind if Terry stayed a girl forever. During her ending, she's blatantly checking out the new girl incorporating to her class. Too bad it turned out to be Gang-Il in a drag
  • Horny Devils: What her second costume is based on.

    Mui Mui 
Voiced by Namiko Otsu
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character_mui1.png
Scion of the Dragon Clan and a master of Kung-Fu.

    Terry Bogard 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/characters_terry03.png
The legendary "Hungry Wolf" of Southtown and a long-time veteran of the King of Fighters tournaments...except now, he's been transformed into a woman! But how? And why?

  • Big "NO!": Does this when paired up with Mai after she points out his new form to him.
  • Gender Bender: He's been transformed into a woman, much to his dismay.
  • Gratuitous English: It ain't Terry without the Engrish!
  • Man, I Feel Like a Woman: Indulges in this in some of his intro cutscenes.
  • Mood Whiplash: His ending is probably the most serious of the bunch in a game that's really wacky in general. He fails to save Geese and suddenly Rock kicks him off the balcony onto his death. Thankfully it's a dream but it really is messed up for this kind of game. The game doesn't even pull any punches by making his ending so detailed compared to most of the characters.
  • Pervert Revenge Mode: He's very unhappy with what's happened to him, and makes damn sure that Kukri knows it.
  • Second Law of Gender Bending: Begrudgingly admits to himself to getting accustomed to his new body in some win quotes and cutscenes.
  • Tomboyish Voice: Probably the only way to describe his new voice; after all, he is still a guy. His alternate voice sets go two ways about this - one has his voice go even deeper, another has him adopt a higher, more feminine tone.
  • Whole Costume Reference: Looks exactly the same as he did when on the receiving end of a Midnight Bliss.

    Kukri 
The main antagonist and a user of the Hot Sand Assassin's Fist. He has sent the Heroines of SNK to his world, but for what purpose?

  • All Men Are Perverts: To put it bluntly, he's a far cry from the mysterious asshole we saw from XIV, even if he was already fairly perverse in his win quotes towards female characters. His goal? To merge the pocket dimension with the real world so he can turn all the women on Earth into his personal collection of sand sculptures.
  • Big Bad: The one who has abducted all the Heroines into this world.
  • Doppelgänger Attack: His supporter is another him. The ending also shows lots of him.
  • Fourth-Wall Observer: He is perfectly aware of being in a game, going so far to directly address the player at some points.
  • The Faceless: His face is always hidden in shadow, though we can still see his mouth and sometimes his eyes. In the ending, he exposes his face, but it's immediately pixellated out.
  • Final Boss: Of the story mode.
  • Gratuitous French: Yeah, we aren't sure why he does that either.
  • The One Guy: The only (physically) male character in the game, and he's not playable.

    Thief Arthur 
Voiced by Ayane Sakura
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character_arthur.png
A guest from the Million Arthur: Arcana Blood fighting game and the first DLC character.

    Skullomania/Skullolady 
Voiced by Yuuko Kaida
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character_skullo.png
A guest from Street Fighter EX and Fighting EX Layer and the second DLC character. Third-rate Salaryman Saburo Nishikiyama found passion in fighting crimes after a superhero attraction gig, taking the mantle of the skull-themed superhero Skullomania... Except that he's now a lady. Skullolady, to be exact. Because that's exactly what happens to male characters that entered Kukri's dimension except Kukri himself.

  • Expressive Mask: His mask is surprisingly expressive.
  • Gender Bender: The second character after Terry to be put through this.
  • Guest Fighter: It would seem that SNK and Arika decided to a mutual crossover, since Skullomania appears in this while Terry (in his standard, male form) is set to appear in Fighting EX Layer.
  • Mythology Gag: Skullomania's ending in Street Fighter EX3 mentions him having a Distaff Counterpart in the form of Skullolady who we never see, and Skullomania is referred to here as Skullolady.
  • Spy Catsuit: What his normal outfit turns into after being turned into a woman.
  • The Un-Reveal: In his ending, he is seen with his mask off, but an inconveniently placed pipe prevents the player from seeing his face.

    Miss X 
Voiced by Chisa Horii (Female Version) / Takanori Hoshino (Male version)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dqxwkp_wwauwwk8.png
The original boss character from SNK Gals Fighters, Iori Yagami has returned as the third DLC character. Only now, Kukri has made Miss X a real woman.

  • Blatant Lies: Still refuses to admit that Iori and Miss X are one in the same. In one of his win quotes, when it's pointed out that his moveset is too similar, he claims to be Iori's long lost sister.
  • Gender Bender: The third character to receive this treatment. However, Iori seems to have an exception as his third outfit is not him as a woman but just him crossdressing as he did in his original appearance as Miss X.
  • Mythology Gag: Miss X was originally the boss in the first Gals Fighters game, only it was Iori cross-dressing.
    • His second outfit is a send-up to the female Kyo Kusanagi cosplayer and fangirl “Kyoko”, who showed up as an “Another Striker” in The King of Fighters 2000 for Shingo.
  • Noblewoman's Laugh: One of his win quote's has him about to go Laughing Mad again, but he slips into this.
  • The One Guy: So far, he's the only physically male playable character in his third outfit.
  • Proper Tights with a Skirt
  • Sailor Fuku: His default outfit and his non-gender bent outfit.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: Of a sort. While the first two costumes depict Iori as a girl, his third outfit is his normal self wearing Miss X's sailor outfit.

    Jeanne (Janne) D'Arc 
Voiced by Keiko Tani
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/characters_jeanne01.png
The heroine of the World Heroes series of fighting games. A swordswoman from 15th century France, she is always on the prowl for a good man in her life.

  • Guest Fighter: The first guest from an SNK-owned property, the long-dormant World Heroes fighting game series (originally owned by ADK).
  • Spell My Name with an "S": In World Heroes her name is spelled as "Janne D'Arc" but in SNK Heroines it is seemingly corrected to "Jeanne".
  • Whip Sword: Her weapon is a segmented sword she can extend at will to hit at range.
