King of Fighters '97
Storyline of King of Fighters '97, The
Red hair and red spandex pants.... One look would make one think they were looking at a some pop musician.
But this man gives credence to the saying that you can't judge a book by its cover. There's something more to him than meets the eye.
Even in his drenched clothes, the man's eyes glare fiercely. Just what are his eyes, gleaming with a magical light, gazing upon...?

The man stops abruptly before a giant LCD display.
"...And the regular entrants for King of Fighters '97 are as follows."
The man begins to leave. But the contents of the broadcast thereafter make him stop in his tracks.
"...The for the Japanese team, Kyo Kusanagi, Benimaru Nikaido, and Goro Daimon are slated to enter. Iori Yagami is also scheduled to enter as a seeded competitor...."
The man laughs when his own name is read.
"Heh, heh, Kagura. So this is all her work.... And Kyo...once again you plan to enter this silly tournament...?"
Muttering this, the man takes his leave.
Strong feelings of hate seize the man's soul. A hate that almost assumes the quality of pleasure throbs in his body.
Hate. Hate. Hate. Hate....
Hate. Hate. Hate....

The man begins to moan.
"Hoo, hoo...."
From somewhere the sound of laughter filters into the man's ears.
"Who is it...?"
"Iori...It seems you still cannot defeat Kyo...Hoo, hoo, hoo...."
Out of the darkness float a pair of glowing eyes.
"Hmph, so it's you?"
All of a sudden, the presence appears at the man's feet and squirms. There are two women. Unfamiliar faces. Strangely, the two women crawl naked along the ground. And their slippery movements resemble those of serpents.
"Hoo, hoo, you've outlived your time...."
"Hoo, hoo...if that's all you're capable of, Kyo will most certainly defeat you...."
He unleashes his "Exorcism" move. The blue flames, however, pass through the two without effect.
"Whoo, hooo, hoo...Iori...we'll meet know know when...."
The woman disappear into the darkness along with their fading laughter.
"Whoo, hoo, hoo, Kyo! Thanks to you I'm seeing monsters now!"
The man lets out a scream.

The man rises from his bed.
The man looks around. There is nothing in the room. Yes, there is nothing else but his bed in this room. It's the usual vacant room, containing nothing....
"...A dream...Wah, gaaack!"
The man coughs. He looks at the hand he brought to his mouth, and notices blood spattered on his palm. Not wishing to trouble himself with wiping it off, the man simply lies back down on the bed. He then looks up at the dirty ceiling above him.
"Hmph, Kyo, you and our destiny...who will be the first to fall...?"
A pale smile comes over the man's lips.
Woo-hah, hah, hah! Kyo! Your voice! Your face! More than anyone! More than anyone in the world! The thing I hate most of all is you! Kyo! My only desire! My only desire is your defeat!!! Hah, hah, hah!!!"
The man laughs.

The pathetic laughter fills the room and continues interminably.
