King is a female Muay Thai fighter.


In the first Art of Fighting, King appears as a CPU-controlled character. She is hired by the criminal Mr. Big to work as a bouncer in his bar. After King is defeated by Ryo Sakazaki and Robert Garcia who were searching for Ryo's kidnapped sister, Yuri, King agrees to help them to find Mr. Big. In Art of Fighting 2, King enters into the King of Fighters tournament in order to win the prize money to pay for an operation for her younger brother, Jan, to regain the use of his legs. As such, Ryo and Robert decide to use the prize money to pay for the operation in gratitude for helping them to find Yuri.


In the King of Fighters series, King started out as the leader of the women fighter's team, initally composed of King, Mai Shiranui and Yuri, in '96 Yuri is replaced by Kasumi Todoh and in '98 by Chizuru Kagura. In The King of Fighters '99 Kasumi, Li Xiangfei and Blue Mary join King to complete the team sinc ethe new rules allow for a 4th member. In KoF 2000, King is requested by Yuri to replace her in the Art of Fighting Team, in which she bonds with Ryo, Robert and Ryo's father, Takuma. She returns to the Women Fighters Team in The King of Fighters 2001 with Mai, Hinako Shijou and Li Xiangfei. She was removed from The King of Fighters 2002, but was added as a playable character in the home version from the game as well as in the remake The King of Fighters 2002: Unlimited Match teaming up with Kasumi and Mai.

In The King of Fighters 2003, King joins Mary and Mai once again in the Women Fighters Team as the tournament returns to the use of three fighters per team. In The King of Fighters XI, King is once again requested to enter into the tournament with the Art of Fighting Team with Ryo and Yuri as Robert has problems with his organization and Takuma is in a weak state. Takuma pretends to be in a bad state just to make King join Ryo and intensify their relation which has been hinted several times in the series.

King has also appeared in The King of Fighters Neowave with the her original team and in The King of Fighters Kyo aiding Kyo Kusanagi and Blue Mary into investigating Geese Howard. Additionally, she has appeared in Capcom vs SNK and Capcom vs SNK 2. Harumi Ikoma has voiced King since her debut.
