Summary

The King of Fighters (ザ·キング·オブ·ファイターズZa Kingu obu Faitāzu?), officially abbreviated KOF, is a series of fighting games developed by SNK Playmore (formerly SNK), which began with The King of Fighters '94 in 1994. The characters in the story's canon include character from other series including Fatal Fury, Art of Fighting and other SNK games that exist in alternate timelines within the series.

The series was originally developed for SNK's Neo Geo MVS arcade hardware, which served as the main platform for the series until 2004, when SNK retired the MVS in favor of the Atomiswave arcade board. Only two King of Fighters games were made on the Atomiswave platform (The King of Fighters Neowave and The King of Fighters XI) before SNK decided to discontinue using the platform for the series. The current arcade hardware for the series is the Taito Type X2, with its first usage coming with the release of The King of Fighters XII. Ports of the arcade games and original The King of Fighters games have been released for several video games consoles.

Power of the Verse

King of Fighters is a fairly strong verse with a decent amount of hax and special abilities, including, but not limited to: Soul Destruction, Sealing, Mind Control, Teleportation, Elemental Manipulation, among others.

Most of its top tiers stand from Large City to at least Large Mountain level, and in speed they reach up to at least Massively Hypersonic levels.

A lot of the characters are scaled to each other into an incomprehensible mess, which sometimes makes it hard to measure how strong they are relative to one another.
