The King of Fighters XIII Aftermath (storyline discussion/speculation)
reelmojo
This thread is for talking about what's going on in the KOF world and where we're headed for the next canon game in the series. Obviously, this thread will be full of spoilers so if you haven't played through story mode and don't want things ruined for you, you've been warned.

So, at the end of KOFXIII Ash's actions made it so Those From the Distant Land (or Those From the Past if you go by the original translation) never existed. Since Saiki is his ancestor this also made it so Ash never existed and no one in the KOF universe will have any memory of the events of the entire Ash Crimson Saga. This means that not only can Ash not be in the next game, but neither can characters who are there only because he is (like Elizabeth). It's not unlike SNK to create popular characters, kill them, and only have them return for dream match games. Although, they can be involved for reasons other than Ash I suppose.

But for a moment let's not focus on who will be absent and talk about who will be present, or rather, returning. Mature and Vice's return to life is an important point in the timeline... All of the Eight Heads of Orochi are supposed to reincarnate if they die and none of them had until these two came back. That certainly opens the door for Chris, Yashiro, Shermie, Goenitz, and even Gaidel (Leona's biological father). And if the main storyline revolves around Orochi enough to bring them back, Yamazaki should be there as well.

Going with the Heads of Orochi theory, the first storyline possibility I can think of is that the one power of Orochi not assigned to anyone is finally obtained. This is exactly what Rugal was trying to do but he couldn't contain it. Perhaps his son Adelheid would have a better chance?

Unrelated to all of this Orochi business, it's also very exciting that I've noticed in KOFXIII at least two references to Geese... and it would appear he's still alive. We've all seen the screenshot of the alpha version of the unfinished Garou: MOTW2 with Geese in it, so his return is definitely an idea that SNK has had for a while. And since KOF has caught up to the timeline of MOTW and Buriki One it's very possible he'll be back soon. Probably fighting his own son even.

One last thing... other than the fact that a few MOTW characters showed up in KOFXI I have no evidence for this one, but I think either all of the MOTW characters should be in the next KOF, or most of them.

the geese tune is cool in it too. I have just 1 slot left to fill in story mode now, just need to figure out how to get there then i will watch all the chapters together.

Edit: just completed all scenes in story mode... had to actually lose one fight to saiki for it to happen... now im going to sit back and watch.

Yeah I haven't done everything in story mode yet, so there might be some other clues to the future of the series that I missed in my long post up there.

Iirc, Mature and Vice faded out of existence at the end of the game, so I don't think they will be returning to the storyline again.

I really hope Adel becomes the protagonist in the next saga, though. Its the only direction I can think of so far. He definitely has a storyline that hasn't really been fleshed out, he was always just... there. (Not to mention the claim that he was the other protagonist in XIII, but nothing came out of it...)
Without love, the truth cannot be seen.

There's the whole dragon spirit thingamajig with Kensou that doesn't seem to be going anywhere.

Garou Mark Of The Wolves 2 please.

KOF's story is finished for now, even if there is still some unanswered questions, I'd rather see the Legend Of The Hungry Wolf continue.

Oh yeah, completely forgot about that.. Not sure what to make of that, Kensou always just seemed like a side-character to me.

I agree with Running Wild though, bring back Garou already!
