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.

In Metal Slug: Awakening, Kyo is a special operations hero capable of optimizing team damage. Kyo’s Rage can significantly boost damage when, after using Rage, the entire team gains the Burning effect. His attacks can also inflict burns on opponents, and damage increases based on Close Combat, enhancing Kyo’s overall damage output.
