Kyo Kusanagi Classic (or Classic Kyo) is a character used in KOF: Maximum Impact 2.
Kyo Kusanagi Classic is basically Kyo as he appears in the Orochi Saga and NESTS Saga as well. Since many fans of the series like Kyo in his school uniform, SNK decided to put him in the game. As an inside joke for fans, Mizoguchi sympathizes with Kyo, since he has also failed to graduate in 10 years.
- Pyrokinesis - Due to his Kusanagi heritage, Kyo can control fire. He can create fire from thin air, create fire balls, deliver punches of fire, create pillars of fire and put his own body on fire. He is not immune to other types of fire. He cannot control other fires that he didn't create.
His fighting style is the one used by Kyo from The King of Fighters '94 and '95. He also has the Saishu Kessen Ougi Mu Shiki SDM from The King of Fighters '97 and the 182 Shiki Super Desperation Move from The King of Fighters 2000.
