  • Kyo Kusanagi (Japanese: 草薙 京 Hepburn: Kusanagi Kyō) is a fictional character in SNK's The King of Fighters series of fighting games. The character was first introduced in the 1994 video game The King of Fighters '94 as the leader of the Japanese team from the series' title tournament. Kyo, heir to the Kusanagi clan, is first introduced as a cocky, delinquent, high-school student who has pyrokinetic powers. His clan is one of the three clans that sealed the legendary snake entity Yamata no Orochi. During the series' story, Kyo meets rivals and enemies who seek to take his flaming abilities. Aside from the main series, Kyo appears in several other media series including spin-offs and crossover video games, as well as comic adaptations of the series, including both his spin-off manga The King of Fighters: Kyo and video game adaptation with the same name. Kyo was created by Shinichi Morioka as a hero who would fight the main characters from other franchises from SNK, Fatal Fury and Art of Fighting. His debut in the game was noted by the staff to have received a large positive response by fans. His outfit and gameplay techniques were redesigned throughout the series; the games' designers created clones of his old appearance that wore the high-school uniform, which was popular within the fans. The same occurred with his moves, which were rebalanced across the series. Video game journalists have praised Kyo's design and fighting style as among the best of the series, and in fighting games in general. His role in the story and his long rivalry with Iori Yagami was also celebrated. The character's redesign in the sequel The King of Fighters XIV earned mixed responses because of the differences to previous incarnations. Kyo's role in printed media and other adaptations of the series has often been criticized, most notably in the live-action film. A variety of Kyo collectibles, including key chains and figurines, has been created. (en)
