Storyline
King of Fighters '95 / 1995
It's the year of our Lord, 1995. Once again invitations to the King of Fighters tournament have found their ways to the world's most powerful fighters.

And their author is none other than the mysterious "R!" Could the "R" be that of Rugal, who supposedly blew himself up on his aircraft carrier a year ago?

Among the contestants for this year's tournament is the newly selected team of Billy, Yagami, and Kisaragi, who sent the American Team packing.
But what in the end is Billy's scheme? What ambitions does Kisaragi cradle? And what evil designs for his old foe Kyo Kusanagi spur Iori Yagami on?

These new challengers join all of the previous tournament's contestants-except the American Team, of course-both in battle and the all-consuming intrigue that forms the core of King of Fighters '95.

Fun Facts
Decent Exposure
Plotwise, King's true gender was revealed during when Ryo split her shirt open with a Koh Oh Ken, a feat that could be replicated if it was used as the final blow in AoF1. This could also be performed on Yuri in AoF2, and even followed them both to the first few editions of KoF.
