Among the King of Fighters 15 cast, Iori Yagami is one of the more recognizable faces for series fans due to his appearance in every entry and spinoff in King of Fighters. In KoF 15, he still sports his savage fighting style mixed in with his blue flames to brutally subdue his foes. However, Iori is not one of the main characters of this entry.

Who Is Iori Yagami in King of Fighters?

Iori Yagami has always been the rival and foil to the first main character of the game, Kyo Kusanagi. Both characters have been defined by, and have grown in fighting styles through, their rivalry.

In King of Fighters 15, Iori Yagami joins Kyo Kusanagi and Chizuru Kagura as part of Team Sacred Treasures. Beyond their rivalry, both Iori and Kyo will be fulfilling their roles as descendants of clans responsible of sealing ancient evils that are suspected to rise up during the events of King of Fighters 15.
