Which SNK character do you think has changed the most
GeeseTheDuck
Since his/her introduction?

My vote goes to the fiery polefighter from England Billy Kane!
His design started as a homage to English wrestler "Dynamite Kid"
and then somewhere down the road became a Axl Rose homage.

Then: images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100427010454/snk/images/f/f6/Billykane95.gif
Now: images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100427010514/snk/images/c/c6/Billykane97.gif

Dynamite Kid + Axl Rose = Billy Kane?
While i prefer Axl Billy, Dynamite Billy wasn't a bad design either,
somewhat of a shame that he had to go.

I'D SAY...
Robert Garcia was pretty high up on my list. Every so often they just feel the need to just completely revise him, both physically an in terms of how he plays!

^Good choice Ninja. Yeah that guy freaking changes his clothes, hair, stance, and moves so much. My favorite is '02 Robert, the sprite in the middle... especially when you pick his all black alternate costume.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Athena Asamiya o.o
Without love, the truth cannot be seen.

I believe Mai of many characters has changed. She used to be a smart, determined fighter, but ever since she entered the KOF series, she became a spunky joyful sort that seems to give the impression she isn't quite up to a fight like before.

The character that has had a one step change from one game to its sequel would be Riden to Big Bear.

A character changing both appearance wise and power wise would always be Rugal.

Athena Asamiya, because of her outfits changes in almost every KOF games.

REGARDING ATHENA...
I don't really think that it's the best choice OVERALL because it's only really her aesthetics that ever change - the character herself tends to ALWAYS remain the same.

Sure there's nothing wrong with mentioning her based on this factor, but for me, it's pretty superficial.

Personally, I chose Robert because, sure, he doesn't change outfit as often as Athena, but imo, he is the most constantly heavily revised character I can think of (off the top of my head!), both aesthetically (stance, clothing etc) and moves-wise - especially the specific transition iterations: 95 - 96 - 99 - 02 - 03 - XI. They all play pretty damn differently imo, with 02 Robert perhaps harking back to the more traditional AOF Robert from 94/95 (and indeed, XII!).

03 ver. is my fave, followed by XI (NGBC) and then 95...

Personally, aesthetically speaking the NESTS Robert is my least favourite - hate the bouncy stance (it looks too rigid ) and the outfit looks terrible imo - can't stand the overly jangly necklace/medallion either. Sorry!

Yeah Ninja, Robert's move set is so confusing to me, from one KOF to another. The only game I use Robert in is KOF '02, his move set (and their respective command inputs) is basically identical to Ryo's (with variations of course). Hence when I try to play with Robert in various KOF games( 03, XI and nest Robert)... I am totally useless. In some KOFs you even have charge commands for Robert, LAME. Which leads me to ask, in what other KOF's does Robert play like '02 ?

images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100419182109/snk/images/b/ba/Robert99.gif
^As for appearances (concerning clothes and hair)... in '02 Robert looks just like his AOF 1 & 2 version, with added tacky medallion. I really like the way the sprite looks. Although I must admit that the stance welcomes a punch to the face.


images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100419182134/snk/images/a/a9/Robert2003.gif
^His KOF 03 sprite looks weird to me, he looks wayyyyy skinny and disproportionate. I admitt I don't know much martial arts, but, I don't think his stance resembles any Karate Stance I've ever seen. In general, Robert has funny looking stances.

images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100419182151/snk/images/5/5e/Robertngbc.gif
^This Robert looks like he is dancing around doing the 'hockie pokie', saying "Look my hands are down, please hit my face!!". Plus this Robert throws weird Sonic-Boom-like projectiles FROM HIS LEGS! WTF?!?

images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100419182054/snk/images/7/70/Robert96.gif
^Here his leading leg looks as if it is getting dislocated and popped into place over and over again. Geez Robert, YOUR LEG IS BROKEN! Pfft Hahahaha!

I am amazed at how Robert changes so quick from game to game until he finally puts on a pair of white trousers instead of beige. I like the Robert with the black shirt, the brown jacket and the necklace out of all.

Don't mind me asking bojan4o, but how older is Robert than Terry exactly? Their age looks pretty similar in KOF series.
 
STE C
yeah I would agree with Robert having some radical changes my fave being his 03 self followed by his 96 reinvention. I have always been a fan of Robert since AOF1 and would like to see more SNK characters get major overhauls in future games ( er well KOF that is as it appears to be the only franchise SNK still see as viable).

Iori I still think is the coolest designed SNK character ever and he was well due an overhaul but last years white spandex pants and move changes dod not go down well with me, white spandex thats like that knob who was in The Darkness Justin Hawkins *not cool*

were gonna have to disagree on this one mate. I actually think that Iori's new look is pretty f'in cool. As for white Spandex, where did you get that from?! They just look like boot cut trousers to me. Check out his latest badass self in the attached picture, his KOFXIII self no less. i think he's looking plain awesome. Infact, I reckon that's one of his finer protraits. The face is unbelievable. Ah... maybe it's just me.

I do love his original outfit too, and I'm secretly hoping that one day, they'll do a 'Kusanagi' with Iori, and create an alter ego in his Orochi rendition, to play as a separate character (just like Kusanagi) complete with old moveset and old outfit! (minus the ridiculous speed and 'hunch' ). Trés cool, non?

I know that Athena hasn't changed much gameplay wise, her play style hasn't changed all over the years, so as Mai Shiranui.

Kyo really changed in KOF 99. He'd already been changing gradually before then like everyone elseb but his incarnation in that game really stood out to me. It was nostalgic seeming him return to his old style in XII.

Aye now I see that pic they are white bootcut pants and pretty cool they are , they just look a bit spandexy when playing the game.

What an easy question:
look at Haohmaru in main SS games and then look at old Haohmaru in PSX samsho. Different hairdo, different clothes, beard(!), and like completely new moveset.

Also honorable mention for Terry Bogard sprite change in Garou

and his KOF XII - XIII Appearance (Which looks weird for me)
