Candy Diamond (キャンディー・ダイアモンド, Kyandī Daiamondo) is a character from The King of Fighters series. She was first introduced in The King of Fighters 2000 as the player's striker (by selecting Kula Diamond as a striker). When fighting against Kula, Candy will be her striker. She is voiced by Masae Yumi (only in The King of Fighters 2002 and The King of Fighters 2002 Unlimited Match).
Candy is a robot that was created to be a partner of Kula in her missions. Some personality was built-in her circuit and she and Kula developed sororal feelings for each other.
