    1) Introduction
    
    
    <Psyke>
    Okay, I was bored for the holidays and since it has been quite I while since
    I've written another faq so I thought I'd just write up a cast faq of all the
    characters of my fave game series, the King Of Fighters. I wrote one for the
    SF series quite a while back, and I'm having it updated as well. : )
    
    This faq will aim to clearly state all the characters in the KOF universe,
    and if requested I might also extend the characters from the KOF universe to
    the other related characters, such as The Art Of Fighting, Fatal Fury, and
    Real Bout. But for now, I'll only state the characters who appeared in the
    KOF series 94 to 99, and the number of their appearances.
    
    As a side note, KOF '99 was titled : Episode 5 in the game's intro. This
    probably means that the story events in '99 happens after the events of KOF 
    '97, and KOF '98 was just a game to satisfy the gamers without a proper 
    storyline to continue.
    
    <Kertra>
    Since Psyke hasn't updated the FAQ although 2000 was out and now that 2001 is
    finally out, I e-mailed him with all the info so he would update it but
    apparently, he doesn't use that mail anymore which shows he is really out of
    FAQ-writing. Anyway, I'm updating it for him by adding the characters for
    2000 and 2001 along with some corrections. Enjoy!
    
    Special thanks to Blader-X <juan.calcano@codetel.net.do> for doing the other
    games (Garou, AOF, Psycho Soldier, Ikari Warriors) and ShadowNash for doing
    the list of the newer titles (cross-overs, handheld releases).
