+--------------------= COLOUR CO-ORDINATED KOF 98 FAQ =------------------+


Everything belongs to SNK Corp 1998, apart from my wasted energy for
typing this!!!

-------What is this?  

Simple, it's the color you get with each button when selecting your
character for battle!!!  The best way to use this FAQ is simply note
down your favourite color combination for your teams and take em to
the arcade to fight in style!

*At this point, the author got bored and switched on KOF 98.  A month later he realised it had been three months since the release of the game and so he'd better finish the damn color faq.  But it was December 22!  There was simply no time!  So....

Note: Obviously, some characters have more than one color in their outfits but I have sorted them aesthetically as pleasing as possible (ie: Chizuru B wears purple and black but I have put her in the purple section).  Also some characters could go in either scheme so I've laid them out accordingly.  Er... yeah, that's it.

This is FAQ #2 From the K.O.U.F. (King of Useless Faqs 4 K.O.F.), Gunsmith.  I've also done a measurements faq and soon to come will be a "end quote" and "Storyline" faq.
