Not that Rugal would have any problem siring kids the good ol' way, it's possible Adel and Rose are clones of him.

The Riot of the Blood. It's a repercussion of the Yasakani/Yagami clan's Deal with the Devil they made with Orochi because they were jealous of the Kusanagis.

I hope they're his actual children. TBH I thought the whole klonez thing was stupid.

However I did like K', Krizalid, Kula and K9999 as characters, I just didn't like that they were clones of Kyo.

I'm pretty sure they're his actual children. It's like Geese Howard having a son. I still don't know how he was able to snag Marie. No wonder Kain and Rock hate his guts.

Yeah, the NESTS saga was kinda... meh.

Wasn't K9999 retconned out? And the less time I spend thinking about the story of the Ko F: Clone Saga, the better.

It's more frustrating waiting for the asskicking than the asskicking itself.

Tetsuo K9999 was a horrible, bland, shameless ripoff who deserved his fate of being Put on a Bus to Hell.

I like the other Kyo "clones", but I think that's it good the story strayed away from that. By 2003 and 2002UM, we had K', Krizalid, Kyo-1, Kyo-2, Kula, K9999, Kusanagi, Nameless, and Isolde. It was getting ridiculous.

I think SNK faced a lawsuit cos' he basically is Tetsuo Shima.

BTW, how do you pronounce K9999's name? Kay Nine Nine Nine Nine is a bit of a mouthful.

All Girls Want Bad Boys. You don't get much badder than the most powerful crime lord around.

Rock, Adel, and Ryo should group up and form the Dysfunctional Dad team some KOF down the road.

Yeah K9999 was retconned but really I like him more than Nameless for some reason. He just seemed more awesome and psychotic. I know he was a rip of Tetsuo from Akira but still, I like him.

It's funny, although the Nest saga were my least favorite in terms of story and games, it also introduced a lot of characters I really liked too. But then again it also gave us Bao...

Rock can't. He's eternally a kid of six or seven years in the mainstream KOF world.

Ryo probably wouldn't team up with them, as the family is a crazy one, but hardly dysfunctional.

I'm wondering if the possible children of Original Zero, Igniz, Goenitz will ever make an appearance. I mean, ever since Goeniko appeared in SNK Vs Capcom: SvC Chaos, fan theories have abounded. And it's stated in Original Zero's bio that he adopts and raises several children as his own. And then we have "lovable wanker Igniz", whose lover Misty escaped alongside Ron after 2001. Who knows?

[up][up][up] That would be Ash Crimson, the God-Mode Sue Magnificent Bastard Obviously Evil Ambiguously Gay Villain Protagonist from 2003 to XIII, Omega. Except for that he's not evil. He's a Well-Intentioned Extremist Guile Hero who died in a Temporal Paradox Heroic Sacrifice to prevent the evil machinations of his ancestor/other half, Saiki. And all of it was done for the sake of his big sister figure, Elisabeth.

Somebody else has gotta have daddy issues in this series. Leona, maybe?

Given that Leona killed her biological father, but is on good terms with her adoptive father, Heidern, I'd say not.

Actually Ash got some redemption following KOF 13. He's not as hated as he once was, and even when he did have a vocal hatedom he still had quite a loyal following. I always liked him personally though yeah at first I thought he was a girl and his name was Ashley lol.

Shen Woo is cool in personality but I find his gameplay and moves boring.

Duo Lon is sick but his stance really bugs me. His foot looks broken.

I thought Oswald was badass. He was like Tubalcaine from Hellsing.

I've always been a Krizalid fan. Even if he's been cloned so much that the only word he can say is 'Barf'.

I mean, his music:

Y'know, a common fan theory is that Shen Woo is an amnesiac Krizalid...

Vertigo, Shen Woo is an uncouth brawler who grew up in Shanghai. He's the patron saint of Boring Yet Practical.

Yeah, the Oyaji Team in '98 was awesome. Doubly so with this nice theme song. Sucks that Chin took Saisyu's place in 2002UM. He's not deserving of the ver. Immortal remix of "In Spite of One's Age".

On the topic of clone issues again, is dressing like a gimp a genetic trait in KOF? I mean, Krizalid is a clone of K', who likes wearing a leather romper suit, and Krizalid himself wears an outfit remeniscent of Psycho Mantis.

Nice pimpcoat mind you.

Krizalid IMO has the most pimpin coat in any game ever. I love that coat.But he fights better with it off, unfortunately since his combat outfit isn't as cool.

Nest Saga I think was the high point visual design wise. Except for you know, Bao and some others. But most ended up looking really cool.

[down] I forgot about Yamazaki's coat. Gah.

Maybe it's a quirk for villains. Mature and Vice were secretaries in suits, Yamazaki and Mr. Big have fur pimp coats, Rugal has his tuxedo longcoat, etc.
