For more information about Kim, see his Fatal Fury and King of Fighters (Orochi Saga) entries.

Kaphwan Kim, usually written surname first as Kim Kaphwan, is in both the Fatal Fury and King of Fighters series by SNK. Kim is a master of taekwondo, and also considers himself a fighter of justice. Since Kim was young and during his taekwondo training sessions, he was always reminded to fight for justice, and use the martial art as a way to accomplish this. One of Kim's defining characteristics is his strong, inherent sense of justice. It is to the point where he has the innate ability to tell whether or not someone is evil or holds dark intentions just by looking at that person. Kim strives for excellence and righteousness in everything he does, be it his fighting or personal life. He is a loving husband and father, and a strict disciplinarian. He is deeply respected and admired by his acquaintances for his honesty and bravery, and has many friends amongst the characters in both King Of Fighters and Fatal Fury (chief amongst them being Fatal Fury's main protagonist, Terry Bogard).

Normal Kim plays very like his his Fatal Fury incarnation while Extra Kim plays closer to his representation in The King of Fighters. Kim in Capcom vs. SNK 2 plays like a fusion of the two versions.

Pro version changes[edit]

  • Kim can combo into Haki Kyaku off of his normal crouncing Arcade-Button-LPunch.png or Arcade-Button-LKick.png or even the first hit of his in close standing Arcade-Button-HPunch.png. For Extra Kim, this makes for some very stylish combos such as jumping Arcade-Button-HKick.png, crouching Arcade-Button-LKick.png (cancel) --> Haki Kyaku (cancel) --> Hou'ou Tenbu Kyaku.
  • Extra Kim's Hou'ou Hiten Kyaku Super Combo takes off much less life than it used to, although it does retain the ability to juggle after a Level 2 or even a Level 3/MAX with the Level 1 Hou'ou Tenbu Kyaku for decent life.
  • Kim's Level 1 Hou'ou Tenbu Kyaku has less priority. It will trade hits a lot more than it used to.
  • Kim's Hangetsuzan hits higher now; it feels a bit like the KoF version. This means it's harder to do things like Cannon Spike him out of it after he buffers it from a Roundhouse sweep.
  • Less priority on his Haki Kyaku when used on its own, it hits slightly different now and doesn't seem to "pound the ground" as forcefully as it used to.
