Life is one bargain after another. Now, the bargaining is over!
~ Mature


Mature (マチュア, Machua) appears as a member of Iori's Team in The King of Fighters '96. The designers at the time created both Mature and Vice with the image of a "ruthless woman" and a "cruel woman" respectively. Their origin story was mostly based on the notion of Rugal employing secretaries prior to The King of Fighters '96. Both women were unavailable during location testing and were likely finished near the end of the game's production schedule.

In contrast of Vice, Mature is ruthless but she likes to toy with her victim a little bit, often using her charms. She seemed to have liked Rugal while they were together. Though Iori killed both of them, she and Vice seem genuinely concerned for Iori's well being and respect his wishes. Their dislike of Goenitz implied that they are uninterested in the affairs of the Hakkeshu and in connection, the Orochi as well.

It is notable that Mature seems to be bisexual. Based on her quotes with several female fighters, most notably King, she has an attraction to both genders.

Mature has a certain rilvary with Chizuru because she is the guardian of the Orochi Seal, and as a member of the Hakkeshu, Chizuru is her natural enemy, in addition, Mature says that Chizuru looks like a priestess.

    • Well he does have heat vision in which I believe ignores durability. But you are right Flight will not help much due to Mature's Snake Arms.
    • lol what, Supe's heat vision doesn't ignore durability, it's just another way of transmitting energy and as such normal durabil...
