The King of Fighters XV

OverviewStrategyDataCombosReplays

A mysterious young man who teamed up with Ángel this KOF. His goggles and mantle compose his trademark design, and he fights foes with his transforming arm.
Unknown to most, however, is that he is actually NESTS' 9999th "perfected" clone of Kyo Kusanagi. Formerly known as K9999, he has adopted a new identity in an effort to hide himself.

Gameplay Overview

Krohnen is a defensive midrange character, who harasses his opponents with oppressive normals before punishing their jump-in attempts.
Pros Cons
  • Great Normals: To the jealousy of many, Krohnen's normals are all fantastic and each offer him something valuable to his kit. His cl.D is a 17 frame overhead that can OTG, his air punches are fantastic and scary jumpins, his cl.C is a fantastic hit-confirm button, and his 2C is a bonkers midrange sweep.
  • Harassment: Krohnen's drill normals and his variety of long-range pokes make it very easy for him to control the midrange and harass his opponents to death. His drill normals also build good guard bar on hit, making it difficult for turtling opponents to survive his onslaught. He also has good options for dealing with fireballs despite lacking one himself, meaning he can survive fireball pressure quite well.
  • Big Damage With Meter: Krohnen has fantastic meter dump opportunities. With meter his damage also skyrockets, as it allows him to cancel his DP into 236236 A/C very easily for a big kill confirm. His metered BnB also allows him to end it at any time while always dealing respectable damage depending on the amount of meter he puts in, letting him easily retain a high threat level throughout the match.
  • Rewarding Offense: Due to Heat Shield being his default ender, most of Krohnen's combos end in hard knockdown very close to him. This allows him to immediately continue his offense with a safejump and makes him a monster when he gets ahead. Being able to switch between blockstrings, frametraps, staggers, and pressure resets allow him to establish his pressure easily as well.
  • Incredibly Threatening Defense: With a little bit of execution, any reversal or anti-air Krohnen does can turn into anything from 30% to full on assured death depending on how much meter he has. This makes Krohnen uniquely terrifying to offend against, as any wrong move can lead to the game itself.
  • Bad Blowback: The one awful normal in Kronhen's kit is his CD. It has horrendous range and leaves him wide open for a punish. Don't use it on anything but corner offense.
  • Linearity: Though Krohnen is by no means bad, he is quite linear, with defined answers to most of the problems he'll face in a match. For example, due to his lack of anti-air normals, he's very reliant on Heat Shield to punish a jumpin. In longer matches, this can result in the player getting 'downloaded'.

  • Data in [] represent values for when the move OTGs.

A close-range overhead attack which is very hard to react to. Capable of hitting opponents off the ground (OTG) for additional damage while giving time for Krohnen to set up a safe jump as well. Can be hit confirmed into OTG climax anywhere on the screen and combos into itself if done while opponent is cornered. Many characters cannot punish this move on block. Krohnen has no low hurtbox during this move allowing it to beat 2B mashing.

  • The neutral. Longest non slide non whip button in the game (Billy doesn't count due to chronic "unplayablitis") and the first hit is cancellable. Krohnen's hurtbox drops very low for this attack allowing it to low-profile many pokes. Due to the low profile and high reward, this is an important tool in neutral for Krohnen that helps him absolutely dominate the ground game and outpoke basically everything. Can even go under some fireballs. If he lands this close enough it can even go into his DP loops. Nothing short of fantastic.
  • The first hit has considerable forward movement, but the second hit has massive pushback only when blocked. In fact, there's no pushback on hit whatsoever.

  • Short-range sweep with slow startup. Krohnen's hurtbox drops very low for this attack allowing it to low-profile many pokes. Though its range and startup are poor its other advantageous properties make it a useful tool in some close-range situations.

  • Multi-hitting jump normal that is active until Krohnen reaches the ground. Only the first hitbox must be blocked high. This is a very useful attack when going for hop pressure on a close-range grounded opponent due to its downward-pointing angle. Scales combo damage heavily due to its multiple hits but strangely only applies to the hop version.

  • Downward-pointing kick attack that can be used to cross up. Due to its low hitstun Krohnen is susceptible to throws as he lands if this hits early on a standing opponent. Krohnen's fastest air normal but its lower angle limits its use as an air-to-air attack.

  • Multi-hitting jump normal that is active until Krohnen reaches the ground. Only the first hitbox must be blocked high. Similar to jump A in its uses but angled a bit more outwards making it better suited for opponents that are further away or even as an air-to-air.

  • Krohnen moves forward while performing a multi-hitting attack that looks similar to his far C. Fantastic poke that can cover the hop range while advancing and doesn't leave Krohnen in a bad position on block. Vulnerable to low profile attacks and full jumps. Useful to fish for Quick Max activations or super cancels for larger reward on hit.

  • Data in [] represent values for when the move is cancelled into.

Krohnen's low slide. Great combo tool when canceled into from normals as it becomes special cancelable. Special cancel can be delayed to allow Krohnen to slide further towards the opponent before performing the special move. Decent poke in neutral if spaced in a way to keep him safe and can be used in this way to sneak in Quick Max activations against standing opponents.

  • Short-range grounded fireball that hits multiple times. Krohnen builds meter even when whiffing unlike other fireballs giving him a slight edge in fireball clashes.
  • A version can be used to extend pressure strings while leaving a small gap. Can also combo off heavy attacks and causes a small launch, which allows for follow-ups in the corner.
  • C version starts up rather slowly which leaves him vulnerable to hops if used during pressure strings. If blocked Krohnen is at a large advantage and it also knocks down on hit allowing for some juggles if done while opponent is cornered.
  • EX version crumples on hit and is Krohnen's main combo tool due to its ease of use and versatile followups.

Krohnen becomes briefly invulnerable and creates a sphere of fire around himself which damages opponents that come in contact with it. All versions can neutralize fireballs (even EX and some super fireballs!) allowing Krohnen to build meter safely if the opponent is throwing fireballs from far away. Generally very active and deals good damage, especially with super cancels. One of, if not the best DPs in the game, and his most reliable anti-air at that.

  • A version only has upper body invincibility but is incredibly fast - phenomenal anti-air tool that can be converted into big reward with super cancels. This launches the opponent diagonally forwards.
  • C version has full body invincibility but starts up much slower than the A version. Useful as a reversal and in combos when possible as it does more damage than the A version. Launches straight up which can allow for better juggles in certain situations. This can lead to EX Prominence juggles (yes, juggles off a super) when delay canceled and is very important in his ToDs and anchor combos.
  • EX version has full body invincibility while retaining the A version's speed at 4f making it useful as both an anti-air and reversal. Additionally, it launches the opponent for a juggle into another 623A, leading to easy-to-confirm conversions. Moves Krohnen forward slightly, increasing the effective range of the move itself and its subsequent juggles. 623AC > 623A > 236236A does incredible amounts of damage for the cost.
  • EX version also has less recovery than most heavy DPs, meaning you can sometimes get away with it unpunished in neutral. Don't bet on it though, it's still lengthy.

  • Krohnen hops a set distance towards the opponent and then performs a slash in front of him.
  • B version allows for juggles if done close and combos from heavy normals. Okay tool to throw out very occasionally due to its safety but do not overuse it as it's high commitment for low reward.
  • D version is an overhead that starts up rather slowly but rewards a combo on hit and advantage on block. Decent move to use very sparingly to keep opponents on their toes but highly telegraphed so don't overuse it. Hard knockdown on air hit allowing for a close D OTG.
  • EX version is projectile invincible and starts up pretty slowly. Must be done early in response to a projectile to punish but rewards a combo if successful. Strong combo tool due to its ground bounce property.

  • A much larger version of Krohnen's Heat Shield with considerable invincibility.
  • A and C versions are great combo tools. Can be used as an anti-air or reversal but outside of a few niche situations it's generally better to use Heat Shield and then cancel it into this move for more damage.
  • AC version has mostly the same use cases as the non-EX versions albeit with better numbers across the board. It also has faster recovery and allows for extremely high damage extended juggles off delayed super cancel 623C in the corner. At the very least, it allows extra time to land an OTG close D.

  • Krohnen turns his arm into a gun and shoots in a straight line ahead of him. Useful to punish fireballs on reaction, chip damage, or very niche punish situations.
  • B and D versions fire multiple times but the shots have a short travel time. Due to its multi-hit property and the pushback on block this move is decent for chipping out very low health opponents. If they have meter they can guard cancel roll to punish.
  • BD version allows you to hold the button(s) down to charge up the shot - giving it additional damage based on the time spent charging. The shot has no travel time and will be released the moment you release the button. This version will beat fireballs more reliably due to its speed. If Advanced Canceled into from Infernal Prominence, be sure to hold one or both kick buttons until the opponent falls closer to the ground.
    • Advanced cancelling off Infernal Prominence which hits high enough by using certain routes (e.g. delayed super cancel 623P into Infernal Prominence) allows a fully-charged MAX Fusion Blaster to land by simply holding down B or D till it automatically launches.

Notes

Alternate input for Super Special Moves

As it stands, while the inputs for Krohnen's SDMs have been simplified, it's still possible to do the classic inputs for K9999's/Nameless' old supers. By doing Infernal Prominence as Db.gifHcb.gifDf.gif + A.gif / C.gif, the move will be performed as per usual. The same also goes for Fusion Blaster as well. Calamity Overdrive can also be done as Dn.gifFd.gifDf.gif+A.gif+B.gif+C.gif+D.gif like with K9999's and Nameless' SDMs back in Vanilla '02 and UM, respectively. These alternative inputs don't affect the properties of these moves in any way and are just there as a fun Easter Egg.

Changes from K9999/Nameless

  • New Design (and Voice): Make no mistake, this is very much the same K9999 that we've seen the last of since 2002, right down to having the same two team members. The only difference here is that he's got a new (yet familiar) jacket, he always keeps his red cape on, he put on some goggles (that look strikingly similar to Alba Meira's - of Maximum Impact fame - glasses), and he's grown out his distinctive blue hair. Oh, and he's voiced by KENN (of Yu-Gi-Oh! and Parasyte fame) instead of Nozomu Sasaki, Tetsuo's VA from AKIRA.
    • Toned down AKIRA References: Speaking of which, the AKIRA references have been toned down significantly. His move names are more direct and simple instead of being quotes ripped from the movie, his Raging Storm special is different, and he's replaced that fleshy abomination with more cybernetics; more on that below.
  • More fire in his Attacks: In his absence, it seems like K9999 finally got used to the Kusanagi flames, because come his return as Krohnen, he's literally spitting out nothing but fire for much of his moveset. 236P is now a burst of flames instead of sand, 623P has more fire in it than it did before (and is just as strong as Nameless' equivalent move from 2002UM, if not better), and his Raging Storm is actual fire instead of a psionic blast. All of this to make him closer to Kyo (since he is a clone of him) and as far removed from Tetsuo as possible.
  • EX Moves: Seeing as he's been gone for the better part of 20 years, K9999/Krohnen now has EX versions of his trademark special moves. And they're all very excellent in their own right. 236AC being a crumple stun, 623AC being one of the best moves in the game period because of its sheer versatility, and 214BD being both another great combo extender/starter and a great approach tool owing to its projectile invulnerability. Suffice to say that Krohnen is every bit as excellent with meter as his (intended) replacement was back in 2002UM, if not better.
  • New animation for 214K: Compared to K9999 leaping forward and throwing a spark of flames at the opponent's face (same story with Nameless, as the animation is virtually the same as K9999's), Krohnen slashes down at the opponent with a huge blade. What this translates to in gameplay terms is a much better, more usable Special Move that works as both a very solid approach tool (especially the EX version as mentioned above) and a great combo starter/extender depending on the version used.
  • Altered Super Special Moves: Okay, moreso with the "Moon..." (aka, Infernal Prominence in Krohnen's case) special rather than "You get lost too!" (aka, Fusion Blaster). In 2002, it was basically a psionic blast that, again, was taken straight from AKIRA. In XV, however, it's a big, devastating ball of fire that is liable to delete at least a third of your health bar; especially if canceled into from 623P. Fusion Blaster remains the same animation-wise, but is now infinitely more useful (especially post-Patch 1.32) as both a punish for fireballs and another great combo ender - especially the MAX version, which trades a volley of shots for a single, powerful shot that can be charged up. Oh, and that SDM that is a spoiler to AKIRA's ending? He swapped that out for a gigantic claw that's strikingly similar to one of Doc Ock's mechanical arms.
    • Simpler Inputs: Oh, right. As you might've noticed above, the inputs are much, much simpler than they were back in 2002, drastically lowering Krohnen's skill ceiling and making him more intuitive to play. Though if you've still got the muscle memory from 2002, the Pretzel Motion inputs can still be performed as mentioned above. As is the norm for Climaxes in KOF XV, Krohnen's also has the same 2141236CD input as everyone else. Though the original input (263ABCD) still works too.
  • Shigure (6B) is Gone: In 2002UM, Nameless carried over K's Sniper Side (6B) from XI. As K' has that move back in XV (albeit as 4B), Krohnen no longer has it in his repertoire, with his slide (3D) now being cancelable after the December 2021 Open Beta to compensate.
