Syo Kirishima (霧島 翔, Kirishima Shō) is a character in The King of Fighters series of fighting games created by SNK. Syo was first introduced in The King of Fighters '99 Evolution as a striker. He is voiced by Mitsuo Iwata.


Syo Kirishima is basically the prototype of Kyo Kusanagi, just like Kang Bae Dal is for Jhun Hoon.


Syo often acts before he thinks. He was created to be an impatient but talented martial artist. His profile seems to imply that he would've been a child-like character.


  • Fire Attacks - Syo can deliver a punch of fire.

Fighting Style

Syo dives towards the opponent and delivers a punch of fire. The said move under a different name modeled somewhat after his surname "Kirishima" is also used by Kusanagi in The King of Fighters: 2002 Unlimited Match (as he shares the same voice actor as Syo).
