[QUOTE] Krizalid! So many good memories of it![/QUOTE] It is surprising that that loveable Irish bastard is one of the memorable bosses not just for me but for many. Plus with fond memories. Not only design and looks wise, also gameplay reasons. I really wonder why. Where does his charm comes from? I consider him as one of the underdog bosses who has really all around good design. Lets dig around with some JoJo parallelsand guesses. Rugal is the posterboy much like Dio and he keeps coming back. Unlike Dio's comebacks, his doesn't feel too much. KoF XV here we go. Orochi is basically Cars. Igniz is Valentine without noble intentions. Zero's are, well, experiment gone wrong; they feel like glorified OP villains of the week. Magaki is RHCP with SNK boss syndrome. Mukai feels like Pucci And yeah Ash and Saiki is clearly Doppio and Diavolo (check Nobi's King of Characters article which gave me this inspiration and I still wait for the sequels once promised hopelessly). Antonov is Josefumi/Yoshikage a loveable pratagonist/antagonist and Verse is...personification of gimmick called part 8 an old flame/s that come back to life to give series a new beginning and uses previous characters. That makes Krizalid...Kira. Well if you take away disturbed serial killer part and inject "Blade Runner's "villain" traits. He is a creation which he believes that he is a natural born human and feels betrayed at the last moments. He remembers Whip as the big sister and used as pawn in the Nests project, for mass killing and world domination which probably made believe that it was his idea. His last moments of despair for one more chance feels very similar to the rain scene, minus the dove and instead of water, it rains concrete. Final revelation by Whip that his memories is all made up makes him very relatable a tragic antagonist. Also despite being powerful he is beatable even by us; scrubs ( can't believe there is so many of us here, yay!). I hope Krizalid -the one who died in 99- is inside Verse and comes back to life ala Ash style and joins the K's crew. It's unbelievable how similar the arcade experience all around the world. The bits with advanced players is so spot on. Hardcore seen was so small I remember once people from next city came to town just for KoF01 and master some combos. There was also really advanced if not hardcore players, too. And it was delight to watch them and beat them every now and then. So many good memories.
