OverviewStrategyDataCombosReplays

The Yagami clan is one of three ancient clans entrusted with a Sacred Treasure. As a descendent of this clan, Iori has access to abilities that allow him to tear apart his foes, and powerful amethyst flames granted by his knowledge of the Yagami Style of Ancient Martial Arts. His ancestors signed a blood-pact with Orochi 660 years ago, sparking a feud with the Kusanagi clan. Despite this, he decides to up-hold his duties as a member of the original sacred clans and joins KOF.

Gameplay Overview

Iori, the perennial poster child of KOF after his rival Kyo, enters into KOFXV as a all-rounder with rushdown flair. Iori's deal is speed. He loves to get into his opponents face with his fast running speed, wide-reaching normals, and fast special moves. Once he's in, Iori can confirm into his rekka series and get a hard knockdown where it really begins. He can run high/low, left/right crossup and even command grab pressure to open his opponents up. Then, he can either spend meter to cancel into big damage or stock his resources and force hard knockdown again. Overall, Iori is a mainstay in the KOF series for a reason, and beginners and veterans alike flock to him for all he offers.

Iori Yagami is an all-rounder character. A KOF mainstay, he has long rewarded players with strong fundamentals. His versatile toolkit enables a flexible gameplan able to adapt to any situation.
Pros Cons
  • Strong Rushdown: Iori can be rather frightening once he's allowed to get in. His suite of good standing normals, great jumping buttons, far-reaching specials and a great DP let him push through the opponents offense. His ground-travelling fireball is also incredibly fast, letting him put on pressure with it from afar. With his wide toolset, Iori has the ability to fight at all ranges while aggressively approaching.
  • Great Conversions: Easy to combo into his Rekka series for consistent damage at all ranges. The EX version launches, letting Iori continue the combo further. Iori is also constantly threatening hard knockdown thanks to his Rekka ender, which leads right into his close-range mixup game.
  • Hard Knockdowns Galore: Iori gets hard knockdown off of tons of stuff, like his rekka ender, his running command grab, and his Yaotome super. From here, Iori can get some great mixup potential and force it all over again, or back off and space out his opponent.
  • Solid Mix: Iori has great mixup off of a hard knockdown. He has great buttons for the usual KOF jumpin high/low, but he can also cross up with j.4B, otherwise known as the infamous "taco kick". He also has a fast command grab to open up blockers, and though it doesn't deal damage, he can link it into f.C for a full combo or CD for full screen corner carry and hard knockdown.
  • Meter Dump: All of Iori's EX moves and supers are fantastic meter dump opportunities. He can use them to help him combo, tack on extra damage after a hard knockdown, or punish approaches from fullscreen. His two-bar Quick Max meter dump also does great damage for the cost, making him a serious threat when he has access to Max Mode. His 0.5/1 bar combos are also highly damaging, with midscreen combos dealing close to 450 damage and corner combos dealing 500.
  • Mobility: Iori's run speed is among the fastest in the game, but where he truly distinguishes himself is with "taco backdashes". These two factors give him both incredible forward mobility and nigh unmatched backward mobility respectively, making Iori not only difficult to catch, but also difficult to outspace.
  • Poor Kick Normals: His big kick normals have all been neutered from previous entries, being slower and easier to punish. Since Iori usually relies on his kick normals to contest space in the midrange, this has noticeably weakened his overall gameplan.
  • Systemic Weakness: KOFXV has made serious changes to wakeup throw that overall hamper his mix and pressure. Iori must now space himself out much more than usual or risk going for a mixup to open his opponents up.
  • Fireball War Loser: Iori's fireballs are only ok, with longer than average recovery. This makes him really vulnerable to fireball wars, although he has some other moves to alleviate keepaway.

  • Excellent for frametraps at the end of light strings.

Since Far D got neutered, this is probably the best possible normal to throw out at semi-close range. Since it is not special cancellable, you won't get much on hit. Still good for contesting space.

  • Iori's biggest poke.
  • A shadow of its former self. Being both slower and shorter.

Once one of Iori's best tools, Far D has gone through a rough time. Its far slower than usual, far shorter than usual, and leads to overall less reward on hit. That being said, this move is still incredibly useful if you have Max Mode stocked, since you can easily cancel it into Quick Max > cl.C > 6B > 236C > Yaotome > Saika for big damage.

  • Virtually identical to his 5C, only less damage.
  • Combo filler that lets you combo heavy rekkas from light attacks.
  • The damage is overall low and could worsen the scaling on your combo, so it you don't need it for your combo to work, it's ok to omit it.

  • Slow grounded overhead that can be Max cancelled.
  • As a string filler it's almost identical to 6A, but the slower speed makes it easier to hitconfirm.
  • Frame traps when cancelled into.

Outside of combo filler, throwing this out in pressure and meterdumping is a great way to put the fear of god into your opponent.

55 Mid - 5 6 1 on ground - - - 60 40
  • Iori's "Taco" Kick. Originating from the Spanish word "Tacón", referring to the heel of a shoe.
  • Crossup tool. Neither ambiguous nor an overhead, but still a staple of his pressure/mixup game. Often used with hyper hops on opponent's wakeup.
  • While somewhat predictable, the threat of Iori's command grab and the sheer speed of his movement can open people up with this if you run enough pressure.
  • Can be used during backdashes to slightly increase the distance.
  • Allows for combos the deeper it hits.

  • Command grab that puts the opponent in a combo-able state.
  • 2C > (whiff) 6A ~ 6A is sure to connect after, leading to good damage.
  • CD also connects.
  • EX version has lots of invincibility, but not on frame 1. It also causes less damage scaling.

  • B version is simply an extender into his rekkas. Punishable on hit even, so get those rekkas going.
  • D version has some projectile immunity. Safe on block and cancels into any specials. Extremely useful as a pickup from 236AC, as you can cancel it into C Rekkas to do good damage and corner carry. If performed as a kara from CD will travel almost the entire screen.
  • EX version is a launcher with complete projectile immunity. Plus on block.

  • Combo super, with no invul.
  • Goes nearly full screen.
  • Has a unique follow-up super that can be performed after A or C version.
  • A.k.a. the "Maiden Masher".

Ol' reliable. Maiden Masher aka Shiki Yaotome is Iori's go-to ender with meter. Decent damage for the cost, but the real prize is forcing Oki or being able to cancel into Saika (see below) for an immediate kill confirm. With this, Iori can confidently meter dump and still retain a safejump opportunity anywhere on the screen, making this a great tool. Plus, the quick animation means there's lots of places to combo into this super in Iori's combo structure- 623A and 236C being good examples.

  • A follow-up to Yaotome that costs 1 bar (none in Max Mode).

Inputting this after Yaotome will allow Iori to squeeze out a bit more damage. Very useful as a kill confirm or just getting out as much damage as possible, since it still gives hard knockdown and better Oki the closer to the corner you are.

Functionally, there's no difference between inputting this versus the MAX version of Yaotome- both do about the same amount of damage. That being said, the lower number of hits in this move with an odd number damage causes it to scale better in longer combos, meaning it can be useful to perform in Iori's longer corner combos.

  • *Values in [] indicate when the move is held.
  • A big projectile cloud that lingers for quite a while.
  • Regular version does 4 hits while MAX version does 8.
  • The long startup coupled with the short lockdown makes this very hard to use outside of corner juggle resets.
  • In any case it is still +15 on block, giving you a "free" mixup (you still have to mind escape rolls).

A weird move, but useful in some circumstances. It's primary purpose seems to be as an Oki tool, but Iori already gets tons of hard knockdown anyways and you can simply roll out of it. The MAX version has much better purpose as an extra damage tool tacked on at the end of Saika in the corner, which can really lay on the hurt. If you cancel into it after Saika and then immediately let go and slightly delay a 214A, you can relaunch them into it and retain hard knockdown. The resulting combo can easily deal close to 800 damage.
