Verse (バース, Bāsu) is the main antagonist and final boss in The King of Fighters XIV.

He is voiced by Yusaku.

Story

Verse is an entity that was introduced in the storyline when Ash Crimson erased himself and Saiki from spacetime. It is a being created from eternal negative energy and thrives from the darkness of people's wishes. Within its being, it traps numerous fighters' souls from many ages.

This Verse's manifestation has already caused time anomalies. A fragment of Verse is inside Shun'ei. Its presence compelled Nakoruru (who refers to him as Wei Kamu) to traverse through spacetime to defeat it.

When this Verse is defeated, the souls inside it are released and a worldwide search for revived fighters commences. Verse's ending shows its remains landing at Australia's Ayers Rock.

According to Geese Howard, Verse's appearance was foretold in "The Secret Scrolls". He also said that "it didn't appear at it's full state this time", implying that Verse's abilities are even greater than what it has shown in XIV.

Personality

Verse is an embodiment of negative energy and rage like a fire. It can speak human language albeit sparingly and expresses its desire to destroy everything as it usually bellows incoherently in rage. Due to the numerous souls contained within, Verse is unable to fully prevent their personalities from completely seeping through its control and they can temporarily manifest as a result.

Powers

Verse's power is connected to one of Shun'ei's powers, as both powers have a symbiotic form of each other.

  • Transdimensional manipulation - Verse is able to change the fabric of reality.
  • Negative force Manipulation - As it is the embodiment of negative forces, it has full control over every negative force or energy.
  • Soul Container - Verse contains the souls of the dead and those who are trapped in the time warp.
  • Pyrokinesis - Verse can control fire. Unlike other characters who can use pyrokinesis, Verse can control other fires it didn't create and is immune to other types of fire, due to it being an entity of fire itself.
  • Levitation - Verse can levitate and fly.
  • Teleportation - Verse can disappear and reappear in another location.
  • Superhuman strength - Verse has superhuman strength.

Fighting Style

Just like Shun'ei, it is able to conjure a barrage of fists.

Theme

  • Independence from an Aggregate - The King of Fighters XIV
