In The King of Fighters '99, two clones of Kyo Kusanagi appeared as selectable characters: Kyo-1 and Kyo-2. The original Kyo was redesigned for the game, but some designers wanted his return to KoF '99 with his iconic school uniform. When they were nearing the end of their production schedule, staff members were indecisive upon which uniform the Kyo clone should wear (KoF '94 or KoF '95) when the project head said to just make two clones instead. To save time, the project head then drew designs for Kyo-1 and Kyo-2 on the spot.


During the course of The King of Fighters '99, Kyo-1 and Kyo-2 were merely two of thousands ready to be activated by Krizalid. They were presumably destroyed, since both characters don't have a personal ending and don't belong to any team. They return in The King of Fighters 2002: Unlimited Match as part of the clone team along with Kusanagi, only to presumably test their opponents and eliminate Kyo.


Kyo-1 is more serious than Kyo-2, hates Kyo Kusanagi, and doesn't underestimate any of his opponents.


  • Pyrokinesis - Kyo-1 has control over fire.
    • Create Fire - Kyo-1 can create fire from thin air.
    • Fire Attacks - Kyo-1 can deliver punches and kicks of fire.
    • Fire Projectile - Kyo-1 can fire a projectile of fire through the ground.

Fighting StyleEditar

His fighting style is based on Kyo's fighting style during The King of Fighters '94 and The King of Fighters '95though heavily modified and arranged. Like Kyo-2, Kyo-1 does not possess any method numbering like the original Kyo does, and his Oniyaki (Demon Baker) is notably replaced by a variation of the original Kyo's Batsu Yomi (Punishment Recital) known as the Souki (Pale Demon). And compared to Kusanagi and Kyo-2, Kyo-1's attacks are more original with moves like the Kurogami (Black Bite; a flameless Aragami-style punch not unlike Shingo's Aragami Mikansei) and Hofuri (Scion Swing; a simple elbow drop derived from the Yanosabi/Eight Rusts); even a flameless version of the original Kyo's Migiri Ugachi (Momentary Driller).

His new Desperation Move and Hidden Super Desperation Move in The King of Fighters 2002: Unlimited Match resemble Terry's Power Wave and Saisyu Kusanagi's final moves he uses in The King of Fighters '98, respectively. His DM is known as the Shutenbarai (Vermillion Sky Cleanser), and with his HSDM/MAX2 being a Dokugami-to-Orochinagi combo known as the Ame no Habakiri (Feathery Slash of Heaven), which is a Shintou mythology reference. This predates EX Kyo's Saishuu Kessen Hiougi: Totsuka (Final Showdown Hidden Secret Technique: Ten Fists) in The King of Fighters XIII, as the Totsuka-no-Tsurugi (Sword-of-Ten Fists) is also known as both the Ame-no-Habakiri and the Ame-no-Ohabari (Tail Feather String-of-Heaven).
