The King of Fighters 2000/Kyo Kusanagi

From SuperCombo Wiki


Introduction

Kyo is an offensively focused character with a variety of tools to get in, pressure the opponent, and deal damage. With his solid ground and air normals, as well as his 114 Shiki Aragami special and its follow-ups, he can bully his opponent to keep them locked down.

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Fantastic normals both on the ground and in the air
  • Strong combos thanks to an easily-accessible launcher and a hard knockdown
  • Good synergy with a wide variety of Strikers
  • Lacks unique answers to projectiles, making him potentially predictable against strong zoners
  • Has few ways to spend meter outside of taunts
  • Most rewarding combos have a high execution demand

The Basics

Combos

Close C > qcf+C > hcb+P > f+P

Close C > qcf+D,D > rdp+B

Close C > qcf+D, D > hcb+B > qcf+A > hcb+P > f+P

Close C > qcf+D,D > hcb+B > dp+C

Close C > qcf+D,D > qcb,hcf+P

throw > BC > run > qcf+D,D > hcb+B > qcf+A > qcf+A > f+B

Combo from throw, works with any striker, remember that calling striker after a throw costs an additional bar of meter so use sparingly

Best Striker: Another Iori

cr.B,cr.B,cr.B > BC > run > qcf+D,D > rdp+B

cr.B,cr.B,cr.B > BC > run > qcf+D,D > hcb+B > dp+A

Relatively easy striker combos with decent damage and hard knockdown

cr.B,cr.B,cr.B > BC > run > qcf+D,D > hcb+B > qcf+A > qcf+A > f+B > [BC > hyperhop back > qcf+D,D > hcb+B > qcf+A > qcf+A > f+B] x N

Low confirm, the first part of this combo (up to before the second striker call) works anywhere on the screen, for the extension with additional striker calls opponent must be in the corner when the first hit of light rekka connects.
