Shermie of the Savagely Crazed Flash of Lightning (荒れ狂う稲光のシェルミー, Are Kuruou Inabikari no Sherumī) is the Heavenly King title of Shermie. This is an alternate form of Shermie that was introduced in The King of Fighters '97 as part of the sub-boss team, alongside Orochi Yashiro and Orochi Chris. Her Orochi name is a homage to one of the opening themes of Lupin the 3rd.
It's not known when Shermie realized she was a Heavenly King. At the end of the tournament, Yashiro, Shermie and Chris activate the Riot of the Blood within Leona and Iori Yagami. When they were defeated, the New Faces Team reveal themselves as Orochi's Heavenly Kings and fight the player. Once defeated, Shermie is killed by Yashiro to supplement Orochi's power.
Verse's defeat during the events of KOFXIV released numerous souls and has caused many who have perished throughout the series to be brought back to life. Shermie is apparently one of them who has been revived, along with comrades Yashiro and Chris. As per her canonical appearance in SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy, some aspects of her heritage seeps into her normal form.
She becomes serious and sadistic during this form, preaching that her master will bring the end of humans.
- Electrokinesis - Given by Orochi, Shermie is able to control electricity.
- Create Electricity - Shermie can create electricity from thin air.
- Electric Projectile - Shermie can fire two different kinds of electric projectiles. The first is blade shaped and it has medium range. Shermie must first strike with an electric attack in a slashing motion, and then release the energy in this blade-like projectile. The second is a very small ball of condensed electricity that Shermie blows towards the opponent. When it reaches a specific point in space, the ball expands, causing damage to any creature nearby.
- Electric Attacks - Shermie can infuse her attacks with electricity. Her most powerful attack is a variation of this power. She concentrates all of her electric energy on her hand, which creates a powerful discharge similar to Benimaru's Raikouken.
- Thunder - Shermie can summon thunders from the sky.
- Orochi Power - As a Heavenly King, Shermie has limited control of the Orochi power.
- Activate Riot of the Blood - Shermie can activate the Riot of the Blood within people susceptible to it.
- Syphon - Shermie can channel and transfer energy to her master, Orochi.
She abandons some of her wrestling moves and relies more on her electric attacks. Her fighting style in this form is somewhat reminiscent of Benimaru's. Like the other Four Kings, her moves are all written using the Cyrillic alphabet.
