From a broken cocoon, the butterfly dances away.

Listen carefully, pitiful children... Annihilation is approaching.
~ Orochi

Orochi is the main antagonist of the same name saga, the first chapter of the The King of Fighters series and arguably the main antagonist of the series as a whole. Fans consider him to be the easiest boss from the The King of Fighters series, which is known for having some of the cheapest bosses from fighting games.

He's the arch-nemesis of the Kusanagi, Yagami, and Yata Clans (especially Kyo Kusanagi, Iori Yagami and Chizuru Kagura).

He was voiced by Rio Ogata in all games up to Neo Geo Heroes: Ultimate Shooting, Shiki Aoki in The King of Fighters: World and The King of Fighters: All Star, Rui Yamasaki in The King of Fighters XV, and Motoko Kumai in drama CDs for The King of Fighters.


Orochi is a deity who serves Gaia, being the guardian of nature. He watched over nature since ancient times, creating a clan and forming the Hakkeshu, who were the eight strongest warriors of his clan. As mankind grew in numbers and populated most of the planet, nature started to become unbalanced. 1800 years ago, Orochi simply decided that humanity had to be exterminated, spreading chaos through the world. Humanity fought against him and his clan, and Orochi was defeated by the combined forces of the clans of Kusanagi, Yasakani and Yata, who used three sacred treasures to seal him away.

The Hakkeshu attempted to break the seal by pitting the three clans against each other. The Yasakani became mortal enemies of the Kusanagi, changing their name to Yagami. Goenitz, the recent leader of the Hakkeshu, started a plan to break the seal of Orochi. He fought a crime lord known as Rugal Bernstein, taking his right-eye and giving him a portion of Orochi power in hopes that he would become one of the Hakkeshu. Rugal hosted the King of Fighters tournament twice and was defeated by Kyo Kusanagi, so the Orochi power consumed him in the end. Chizuru Kagura, heir of the Yata clan, hosts the tournament again in hopes of convincing Kyo Kusanagi and Iori Yagami on giving up their vendetta and joining to defeat Orochi, but Goenitz interferes. Goenitz is defeated and disappears, so Yashiro Nanakase, another member of the Hakkeshu, hosts the next year tournament to gather enough energy to awaken Orochi, aided by his fellows Shermie and Chris. Yashiro succeeds, and Orochi possesses Chris's body, reshaping it to look older and tougher. Although weakened from his seal, Orochi wants to resume his plan to wipe out humanity. Kyo, Iori and Chizuru join their forces and defeat Orochi, sealing him once again. After the defeat of Verse, Orochi managed to return in Hungary in a weakened state, although he was quickly sealed away again by the Three Saced Treasures.


Orochi is a powerful being that plans to serve Gaia by all costs. It will protect her from anything, even from what she created herself. It shows no mercy to humans, citing their sins and their harmful self-destructive acts, although it grudgingly does acknowledge their potential to be able to change for the better.
