SNK Wiki

Seth (セス) is a character from The King of Fighters series. He made his first appearance in the series as a Striker in The King of Fighters '99 Evolution, and made his playable debut in The King of Fighters 2000 as a member of the Benimaru Team.

His official nickname is "The Secret Agent" (シークレットエージェント).


Seth was created along with Vanessa, though Seth became the visual model for her. Developers wished to have a character with "the powerful image of a big, dark, middle-aged man with a Mohawk haircut". Seth's prototype name was "Dick". [1] Ureshino explains that he was added to the KOF: Maximum Impact series over other agent characters due to his professional and focused attitude.


Seth is a good man engaging in a dangerous line of work. Methodical and straight to the point, he completes his missions with the ease of a true professional. He will faithfully obey any orders from his superiors and protect his family at all costs. Even then, Seth can at times be lighthearted enough to fake a finishing blow towards his fallen foes.


  • Sense - Seth can sense the presence of people nearby.
  • Vacuum - Seth's punches are so strong they create a vacuum around the areas he strikes.
  • Scramble senses - One of Seth's more powerful abilities is to be able to land a blow upon his foe that discombobulates their sense of direction for a short period of time.

Fighting Style

As Seth himself says, his fighting style is mostly made up self-defensive techniques.


  • Inner Shade - The King of Fighters 2000
  • The Immortal Mirror of the Sun - The King of Fighters 2001
  • KD-0084 - The King of Fighters 2002
  • Flame of Invincibility - KOF: Maximum Impact 2 (against Kyo in the Neo Geo Land stage)
  • Undercover - The King of Fighters 2002 Unlimited Match

Voice Actors

  • Hidetoshi Nakamura - The King of Fighters 2000~2002 UM, The King of Fighters All Star (redub)
  • Glenn Haig - KOF: Maximum Impact 2 (English dub)






  • Uniquely enough, his moves are all written in kanji with a unique romaji format that are all in English uppercase letters, along with his moves being named after a solar motif (the sun, moon and rain).
  • Seth's voice actor, Hidetoshi Nakamura, passed away on December 24th, 2014. All of Seth's appearances after KOF: Maximum Impact Regulation "A" reuse his voice lines from older titles.[2]
