Kukri (ククリ; Arabic: كوكري ) is a new character in The King of Fighters XIV. He is voiced by Hiroki Takahashi.
Kukri is a mysterious fighter that lives in the underground society. He hides his face with a hood at all times. Nobody knows his true identity.
The team ending reveals that he is familiar with Verse, especially with the monster's half-power within Shun'ei. He has been hired by Elisabeth to enter the King of Fighters XIV Tournament to find and rescue Ash, whose soul resides inside Verse.
At first glance, Kukri comes off as a very rude, foul-mouthed, arrogant and sadistic fighter. However, in certain teams' cutscenes and his team ending, it's shown that Kukri is very observant and has a good side in him, helping Elisabeth locate Ash's whereabouts when he is brought back to life.
Kukri has the power of sand in order to trick, attack, and defend against his opponent(s).
- Venator Ballare - The King of Fighters XIV
- Full Burst - The King of Fighters XIV (as Shun'ei's opponent)
- According to Antonov, people will die of a curse if they supposedly look directly at Kukri's face.
