Pre-Battle Dialogues (Story Mode) Edit

Women Fighters Team

King: "We're almost at the venue."
Yuri: "Hey, Mai, it's been a while since you fought, hasn't it? Are you sure you're up for this?"
Mai: "Now this is unexpected! You think I've been slacking off or something?"
Yuri: "No no, that's not what I mean. It's just that, you know, I've been practicing really hard..."
Mai: "I see. But Yuri, don't make the mistake of thinking I'm at the same level I used to be. Why don't we warm up, and I'll show you how rusty I am. I bet I could easily take on the both of you!"
King: "Wait, since when am I involved in this?"
Yuri: "Really? Are you sure about this, Mai?"
Mai: "Sure! This'll be a good chance for us to test each other's skills! Bring it, ladies!"
Yuri: "All right, you asked for it!"
King: "*Sigh* I hope this doesn't end with us forfeiting the tournament..."

Art of Fighting Team

Takuma: "You stubborn girl! you entered the tournament again! I didn't even give you my permission!"
Yuri: "Oh, just deal with it already, Dad! I can take care of myself!"
Mai: "Calm down, Yuri."
Robert: "Yes, there's no need to get upset here, Master."
King: "Perhaps you should be more considerate of your farther, Yuri. He's just worried about you because of the many times he hasn't been able to look out for you."
Takuma: "Precisely! What a keen eye! That's why I like you! You should be more like her, Yuri!"
Ryo: "Dad, Yuri's a grown-up now. Why do you have such a hard time admitting that, huh?"
Yuri: "Ryo..."
Mai: "Oh, how cuuute! Is that some brotherly love there?"
King: "Maybe you should take your own advice, Ryo? Don't take it so easy on your little sister."
Ryo: "What?"
Takuma: "(Huh...!?)"
Ryo: "I'm just looking out for her, trying to get Dad off her back."
King: "Well, maybe she doesn't need you to do that anymore. She can fight her own battles."
Robert: "(I don't like where this is going...)"
Ryo: "What's gotten into you, King? This is family business, all right?"
King: "You're just going to dodge the issue like that? I tell you, men these days..."
Yuri: "(This isn't good!)"
Ryo: "Who do you think you..."
Yuri: "I'm sorry, Dad! I wanted to tell you, honest! But I just couldn't..."
Takuma: "O-Okay! As long as you're sorry. We'll let this slide this time! Right, Ryo?"
Ryo: "Huh? I wasn't angry with her in the first place..."
Robert: "Fantastic! Must be amazing to be part of such a wonderful family! Right, King?"
King: "Well, whatever works for them, I guess..."
Takuma: "Well then, Yuri, show me what you've learned!"
Yuri: "All right, here goes!"
Robert: "Wake up, you two! The fight is starting!"
Ryo/King: "Wh-Wha...!?"
Mai: "Wow. This is an amazing team here..."

Fatal Fury Team

Mai: "Hey, Andy! What a shame we're not on the same team, huh? But let's not go easy on each other, okay?"
Andy: "Of course, Mai! We'll make this a fight to remember!"
Mai: "*giggle* Oh, by the way, Andy... Did you know the hotel we're staying at is known as a legendary wedding location?"
Andy: "What? What are you talking about, Mai!?"
Terry: "Yo, Karate Girl! Have you been training properly?"
Yuri: "You know it! I've got all your moves totally figured out!"
Terry: "Is that so? Every single one of my moves, huh? OK! This should be interesting!"
Joe: "L-Look at the two of them, drooling over each other like that..."
King: "What's the matter, boxer boy? Are you jealous?"
Joe: "Quiet, you! I'm gonna make you pay for those words! I'll show you! I'm the best around, no one's gonna ever bring me down! I'm the greatest!"

K' Team

Maxima: "Hello there, ladies. You're looking gorgeous, as usual."
Mai: "Why, thank you! Flattery won't get you anywhere in this tournament, though!"
Maxima: "Well, that's a shame, I guess. What are we gonna do now, buddy?"
K': "Leave me out of this. What a pain in the ass..."
King: "Nice to see you're as cheerful as ever."
K': "Shut up and leave me alone!"
Mai: "What a waste. The ladies would be all over you if you just smiled a little, you know?"
K': "I don't care."
Yuri: "Come on, try to laugh for us. Just this once! Like this!"
Kula: "Heeheehee ,yeah, try for me, too!"
K': "You look like like an idiot..."
Yuri: "Tha'ts rude!"
Kula "I'm not an idiot! You're just shy , K'!"
K': "I am not..."
King: "Oh! It all makes sense now!"
Mai: "Shy!? Awwww! See? You do have a cute side to you!"
Maxima: "Give the man a break ,ladies. Our buddy just isn't a people person. Right , K'?"
K': "I'm going to burn the whole lot of you!"

Psycho Soldiers Team

Yuri: "Hey, Athena, isn't it hard being an idol? I mean, you can't hang out with friends in public or date and stuff, right?"
Athena: "Yeah, there are some restrictions on my personal life... But I'm happy to be an idol, so I can accept those inconveniences!"
Mai: "But you're still so young! You should date! Love makes you prettier and stronger!"
King: "Oh, here we go. Again with the Andy stories..."
Yuri: "Hey, what about you, King!?"
King: "W-What are you talking about!?"
Yuri: "You've gotten a lot prettier ever since you started seeing my brother."
King: "D-Don't be ridiculous! Well, what about you? What's going on between you and Robert?"
Chin: "Hohoho, that brings back memories. I remember when I first met granny..."
Athena: "It's so nice that you all have someone special to talk so passionately about. I wish I could have someone like that in my life..."
Kensou: "Hey, wait a minute! You have me, Athena!"
Athena: "Huh? You don't count, Kensou you're like a friend, or an ally or something."
Mai: "Oh, poor Kensou♪ He's stuck in "just friends" jail."
Kensou: "Could you all shut up for a second? Athena, I really lo...l-lo...lo-lo-lo-lo!"
Athena: "Kensou! Not in front of everyone else!"
Yuri: "Oh? That's a suspicious response! Was that all an act just now?"
Athena: "W-What? There wasn't anything suspicious..."
Kensou: "Athena, I lo-lo... luhhhhh!"
Athena: "Oh, give it a rest already, Kensou! Look, it's time to fight now, okay? Let's go!"
Mai: "That's a shame... Still no progress this time, eh?"
Chin: "Hoho! That's youth for you!"

Pre-Battle Dialogues Edit

Andy Bogard

King: "Ah, Andy, just the man I was looking for!"
Andy: "You were looking for me? Why!? Don't tell me something's happened to Mai!"
King: "No, it's nothing to do with Mai, it's about that brother of yours. He came to my bar with Ryo the other day. They both drank almost every bottle in the house and they had it all put on the tab! I got Ryo's share from Robert, but I'm going to have to ask you to take care of Terry's share."
Andy: "But... that's insane! Why should I have to pay for that!?"
King: "Why indeed? Because you have a good-for-nothing brother I'd say."
Andy: "That slacker! Next time I see him I'll tell him to get a real job already!"

Ash Crimson

King: "I heard you've been acting kinda strange. Have anything you want to share?"
Ash: "What's it to you? This is something I, and only I, can do."
King: "That sounds like a cry for help. You need someone to help carry your burden, right?"
Ash: "Stay out of this! I hate nosy people like you! It's too late, anyway! Soon all will be forced to an end!"

Athena Asamiya

Athena: "I'm usually teamed up with my teacher, so I always kind of envy you, King! It must be so much fun to put together a team with a different group of girls. Just like in school!"
King: "Well, if you'd like, I'd gladly exchange one of my teammates for you!"
Athena: "W-Why, Miss King? Did something happen?"
King: "Well, nothing serious. It's just.... Mai and Yuri just can't hold their liquor very well.... And you're still a minor so I couldn't possibly ask you to take care of two drunkards, could I?"
Athena: "Oh, I don't mind. I'm used to being around people when they get hammered! Whenever Master gets drunk, he goes out and fights pandas!"
King: "R-Really!? Is that what your teacher does when he gets drunk?"
Athena: "Oh yeah, it happens all the time! Grandma always gets really angry with him though!"
King: "Wow.... Alcohol is the great equalizer, huh?"

Benimaru Nikaido

Benimaru: "Hello, Miss King! How are those beautiful, taut, and exquisitely lethal legs of yours doing today?"
King: "That's no way to greet a lady! You still haven't changed your raunchy playboy ways, I see. But if you are that interested in checking out my legs, I'll make sure to show you all your eyes can handle."
Benimaru: "Oh my, this is gonna be a rough date.... But you know I can't say no to a pretty lady!"

Billy Kane

King: "Just let me tell you this in advance: your kind isn't welcome in my bar. If you want a drink, you'll have to go find some seedy bar on the outskirts of town. You'll feel so much more at home there anyway."
Billy: "I ain't interested in your drinks, lady. I'm only interested in seeing you bleed!"

Chin Gentsai

Chin: "Say, I was wondering, could I get you to invite Grandma into your team next time?"
King: "What!? Are you crazy!? Of course not!"
Chin: "Why not!? Grandma's a lot stronger than I am, and she's the world's hottest babe!"
King: "I honestly can't tell if you're being serious or not.... Just thinking about this is messing with my concentration...."

Clark Still

Clark: "A female bartender.... Or should I say a female bouncer? You look like you've got a mean bite."
King: "My kicks will make your head pound more than a fifth of vodka. If you take one shot of my kicks, it's goodnight!"
Clark: "Now I'm starting to get thirsty. I'll have the house special! On the rocks!"

Duo Lon

Duo Lon: "You there, Muay Thai girl. I hear you're pretty good with your feet."
King: "What's it to you? Don't think I'll go easy on you if you flatter me."
Duo Lon: "Oh, nothing. You just reminded me of someone else who can dish out some pretty devastating kicks."

Elisabeth Blanctorche

King: "I hear you are quite a knowledgeable gourmand. We've got many different varieties of wine back at the bar.... Would you like to sample our wares sometime? I'll give you a special discount!"
Elisabeth: "I shall pay your bar a visit this very evening, then! It will be a good opportunity to celebrate my victory!"

Evil Ash

Ash: "You're like a moth! Drawn to my flames, even though you know they'll kill you."
King: "You think we humans are like moths? You sound just like a bratty child! Just an insolent child running around and showing off his toys!"
Ash: "Toys, eh? We'll see. Now, come into the light, maggot!"

Flames Iori

King: "Let's get going, Yagami! Don't even think of telling me you won't fight women!"
Iori: "I'll fight anything if it stands in my way. Who am I to deny your death wish?"
King: "You really should learn how to treat women, though. You'll never be popular with the ladies otherwise!"

Goro Daimon

King: "People who move really fast also tend to make mistakes easily.... In that sense, you're a tough opponent to fight. You don't make many mistakes."
Daimon: "Is that so? Then what will you do?"
King: "I'll just have to force you to make mistakes. This isn't the first time I've had to fight a man your size."


King 1: "I can't do this. I can't fight someone whose only talent is copying people."
King 2: "Already making excuses in case you lose, huh? If you're so scared of losing, just get out of here while you still can."
King 1: "There's no fun in taking on someone whose every move you already know. But if you're that eager to lose, let's play!"

Human Saiki

King: "Man, I just can't get a rest, can I? Are you some kind of Ash impersonator or something?"
Saiki: "My semblance to him is proving to a bit of a problem, yes. It seems I am never taken seriously by those who see me. But I'm sure you will come to regret your insolence once you find out my actual identity."

Hwa Jai

Hwa Jai: "You aren't seriously telling me those dance steps of yours are supposed to be Muay Thai, are you!?"
King: "Hello to you, too.... What if I am?"
Hwa Jai: "Well, first I would kick that mouth of yours in!"
King: "Hm. Why don't you try and see just how close you can get before you hit the floor?"

Iori Yagami

Iori: "Do you have any idea what you're up against, woman?"
King: "What kind of question is that!? Now that you've lost your flames, is talk all you have left?"
Iori: "Excellent. Then you know that you will die!"

Joe Higashi

Joe: "Let me just tell you that your fake Muay Thai isn't going to stand a chance against the real thing!"
King: "*sigh* I'm getting so sick of these guys acting like they have the only opinion that counts. Who cares what you think is fake and what you call real!? Looks like the only way to shut you up for good is to show you once and for all who's stronger!"
Joe: "Right! Losers don't get to do any explaining! That's the iron rule in this world!"


King: "That doesn't look like the kind of face that enjoys a good drink. Oh, wait.... You're underage? Anyway, why don't you try smiling a bit more, like that kid you have with you?"
K': "You're kidding me.... I'm not as dimwitted as she is."
King: "Aww, I think you're just being shy! That's pretty cute!"
K': "...All right, that does it. Get ready to get burned!"

Kim Kaphwan

Kim: "Muay Thai is a beautiful martial art, certainly, but my kicks will not fall behind! I shall win this fight for the honor of Tae Kwon Do as well!"
King: "*sigh* All you men are the same. Can't you fight without slapping some justification like 'honor' onto it? You're such a pain to listen to."

Kula Diamond

Kula: "Hey, do you work at a restaurant? Could you bring me some sorbet?"
King: "Well, it's not exactly a restaurant, but we do have some sorbet."
Kula: "Sor-what? I don't want sorbet! I want sherbert! You don't know what they are?"
King: "...Is anyone here missing their kid? An annoying little girl...? Anyone?"

Kyo Kusanagi

Kyo: "A female bouncer, huh? How's that personal Muay Thai style working out for ya? If you think the skills that you honed by beating up drunks are going to work on me, you're about to get a painful lesson!"
King: "You should try working at my bar. You'll have a bit more respect once you know what it's really like. Every fight there could be your last! I don't lose to men drunk on alcohol, and I'm not going to lose to a boy drunk on his own delusions!"

Leona Heidern

Leona: "Target located.... Starting mission...."
King: "You're a straightforward one! Well, why waste words, right? Okay, I guess it's 'Mission Start' for me, too!"

Mai Shiranui

Mai: "You know, I don't really care who gets to be the leader.... But don't you think we should at least make sure which of us is the strongest?"
King: "I can tell by the look on your face that you think it's you. Ah well, whatever! There's no harm in finding out how strong we both are!"


Mature: "Hmmm.... You're a pretty one! I love picking pretty flowers!"
King: "Just remember that every rose has its' thorn. Once you've grabbed hold of it, it'll be too late!"
Mature: "I wonder how pretty you will look when you're snapped in two? I'm going to have some fun with you, little flower!"


King: "I know this is a weird question, but do you ever get drunk?"
Maxima: "It's one of the few downsides to this body.... Drinking has no effect on me anymore."
King: "That's a shame. That's one less thing that you can appreciate in life."
Maxima: "Hmmm. If I didn't know any better, I'd swear I could see you smiling just now."
King: "I'd never do that! I don't take joy in seeing other people in complete misery!"
Maxima: "Grrr.... Who cares about alcohol!? I'm more into desserts anyway!"

Mr. Karate

King: "Hey, if it isn't Ryo's dad! What's up? You're looking kinda weird today...."
Mr. Karate: "Your strength, your wits, and your resolution.... Show them to me!"
King: "Okay, you seem to be more serious than I thought.... Let's do this!"

NESTS-Styled Kyo

King: "History isn't just about piling up years, Kyo. You have to use that time to actually improve yourself."
Kyo: "And what's that supposed to mean? You make it sound like I've just been sitting around all this time."
King: "That's not what I'm saying. I just have the impression that you've been waving this '1800 years of history' thing around like some kind of status symbol. Those 1800 years aren't going to look very good if you just lose in the blink of an eye, are they?"
Kyo: "Oh, don't worry about that. There's no way I'm going to lose anyway!"


King: "Whenever I see you, I'm always reminded of this really nasty guy...."
Raiden: "Hmm.... Describe this guy to me."
King: "Him? He's a foul, fat gasbag with a nasty laugh. He's such a vile human that he could give you a run for your money!"
Raiden: "I don't think I've ever felt this angry hearing someone else being badmouthed...."

Ralf Jones

King: "I used to be a bouncer, so I know how to deal with big guys like you."
Ralf: "Hey, don't compare me to a bunch of drunks at a sleazy bar! When I get serious, I can easily level one or two bars like yours in the blink of an eye!"
King: "That's exactly the kind of talk I'm used to silencing! Let me show you how...."

Robert Garcia

King: "You and Ryo's father.... What are you up to?"
Robert: "Huh? What are you talking about? I'm not up to anything! Let's do this, already! Show me if you've improved at all since we last met!"
King: "Still cocky as ever. Ah well, why not? I've got time to give you a quick lesson in fighting!

Ryo Sakazaki

King: "Let's go, Ryo! And don't you even dare to go easy on me!"
Ryo: "Don't worry! I always put everything into every fight!"
King: "Ha ha, you probably couldn't even go easy if you tried...."
Ryo: "Going easy on you won't get me anywhere, anyway! That's why I always like fighting you!"


King: "That appearance.... Who are you? I can tell you're not one of the good guys...."
Saiki: "That's no way to talk, mademoiselle. Or should I call you 'maggot'? Because all humans are maggots! And I'll treat you all equally and without bias like the worms you are!"
King: "Your vocabulary's quite limited, isn't it? I'm more amazed than I am angry.... But, well, you've come this far. Let's hear the rest of your story, huh?"

Shen Woo

Shen: "What, I gotta fight a woman next!? Gimme a break!"
King: "What's so bad about having to fight a woman? If you underestimate me you're gonna be leaving in an ambulance!"
Shen: "It's not that women can't fight. It's just that I hate the sounds of your shrieks when you're eating my punches!"

Sie Kensou

King: "I shouldn't have to tell you this, but if there's someone you want to protect, you should try a little harder!"
Kensou: "Y-Yeah, I know.... But I'm trying so hard, you know!?"
King: "Then show me! I'm sure she'll be watching, too!"
Kensou: "A-Alright! Let's go! I'll make you proud, Athena!"

Takuma Sakazaki

Takuma: "Show me your strength one more time. Otherwise, I cannot accept you!"
King: "Why do you have to accept me? What on earth are you talking about?"
Takuma: "Nevermind the details! Attack me!"

Terry Bogard

King: "Bring it on, Wolfy! I can take anything you can dish out!"
Terry: "Every rose has its' thorn.... I learned that fighting Mary. There's no art in just brute force, right? I'll show that I can fight with skill, too!"


King: "That stare is really freaky! Can't you do anything about that?"
Vice: "Sorry, it's just that you look so tasty.... I'm overcome by hunger!"
King: "Ugh, that's not helping at all. Cut that rubbish out! I hate your sense of humor!"
Vice: "Oh, you think I'm joking? Ah ha ha ha! So naive...."

Yuri Sakazaki

Yuri: "Oh, that's right! I always meant to ask...."
King: "What is it? I hope I can be of assistance...."
Yuri: "Be honest with me here. What do you think of my brother?"
King: "What!? Wh-What are you asking me that for!? Is this the time or place to be talking about that!?"
Yuri: "Hmmm? What's the matter, King? You seem flustered all of a sudden!"
King: "N-No, I'm not! It's.... I just.... Let's...uh.... Let's do this!"
Yuri: "Tee hee, I can read you like an open book. Looks like I already won this one!"

King: "Yes, back in the day. I'm a former bouncer. Now I'm just the owner of a regular bar."
