Kyo Kusanagi – Story & Skills

Kyo Kusanagi is the main hero of SNK’s The King of Fighters series. He is the descendant of the Kusanagi clan and inheritor of the Kusanagi martial arts. Kyo has a resolute personality, appearing cold on the outside but harboring warmth within. Only those who truly know him understand his fondness for poetry.
