The King of Fighters EX: Neo Blood is a video game based on The King of Fighters '99 Evolution''''s systems. It was released for the Game Boy Advance in 2002.
The EX series created a alternate timeline. According to the team prologues of the game, in this continuity, Kyo Kusanagi was found by Moe Habana rather than NESTS at the end of KOF '97. As a result, the events of the NESTS Saga did not occurred. Also noted that the appearances of the Striker-only characters in this game are non-canon, as they are either never mentioned in prologues or have other things going on (such as Joe defending his title and Yuri contracting the mumps), and that this game takes place instead of KOF '99 in the EX continuity.

- Despite this game's systems primarily being based on KOF '99: Evolution, most if not almost all the character leitmotifs are instead compressed versions of their KOF 2000 leitmotifs.
