Eiji Kisaragi

Ryo 2: Let's see who is who, funny face!

Jack Turner

Jack: "You really know how to frost my cake, sonny. Eat my shoes, bug!"

John Crawley

Ryo: Quit the life in the service? You're probably a couch potato.

Mickey Rogers

Mickey: Heh, heh! You got a big mouth, junior. Why not come and see!

Mr. Big

Ryo: Long time no see, Big! Haven't yet quit using toys?
Mr. Big: Let's say, I know which holes in which to put my pegs, pal!

Robert Garcia

Ryo: What is this? You have bought a new car again! Whoa!
Robert: Hey, you can't understand the coolness of a car like this.

Takuma Sakazaki

Ryo: You are my dad and I love you, but I'm going to knock you silly!
Takuma: You should have stayed a glint in my eye, smart guy... Waah!


Ryo: Oooh, be sure not to hurt me, ya big Mongolian madman, you!
Temjin: You're about to learn your error in teasing a Mongolian sumo!

Agent: "Mr. Ryo Sakazaki? The Police Commissioner would like a word with you. Could you walk this way?"
Ryo: "If I could walk that way...sure, I'll come along."

Geese Howard

Geese: "So your Takuma's little brat? A pleasure to meet you."
Ryo: "You must be Duck!"
Geese: "That's Geese, fool. A sad pun. I know, but...the fowl leader of Southtown. That's not the point. It's you I seek. Care to join forces with me and kick some Southtown butt?"
Ryo: "You're Geese, my father's enemy. I know about your sick plans. They're kind of cool, but no."
Geese: "Then face my wrath, wimp!!!"


Ryo: "I'll never forgive you!"
Geese: "Heh, it's all over."
Ryo: "Eat this! HA OH-- Waaah. What the heck...!"
Servant: "This way, Mr. Geese."
Geese: "I have lost this time, but I will be back. For now, my farewell."
Ryo: "Wait, where...? Geese!"
Servant: "Mr. Geese, we are entering Japanese air space."
Geese: "I see. How goes Southtown?"
Servant: "Everything is going as planned. Just f-a-b, b-i-g g-u-y."
Geese: "Tell me more. Don't spell it out."
Servant: "OK, whoops, sorry. Anyway, it seems that Jeff Bogard is checking up on you and your actions. We don't know who this guy is."
Geese: "Take care of him. Rub him out."
Servant: "Rub him off. Got it."
Geese: "Out! Twit! Kill him and get me control of Southtown. I have invested too much in this to see my plans ended. The city will be mine. All mine. Wah hah haaaah."

Ryo: "No way, dude! Wanna start something?"
Robert: "No, I'm gonna finish something!"
Ryo: "You rich twit!"

The King of Fighters XIIIEdit

Pre-Battle DialoguesEdit

Andy Bogard

Ryo: "Shiranui style, eh? I should warn you that I know a thing or two about the ancient martial arts as well!"
Andy: "Sorry to rain on your parade, but you won't be the victor today. Just as Kyokugen exceeds standard karate, Shiranui exceeds standard ancient martial arts."
Ryo: "I see! I'll keep that in mind!"

Ash Crimson

Ryo: "Listen up, boy! The only thing thay will guide you in life is the discipline of your own fists! You'll never get anywhere by siphoning away other people's powers!"
Ash: "Thanks for the advice, but I'm not after your undoubtedly magnificent sweat-based powers... Anyway, just get out of my sight already, okay? You're really starting to tick me off..."

Athena Asamiya

Ryo: "Don't you think you're relying on your psychic powers too much!? It seems like you're neglecting your physical training. Once the chips are down, all you can truly rely on are your own arms and legs!"
Athena: "Those and my mind! My Master has taught me now to wield my mind as a weapon well!"
Ryo: "I see... It seems I've said too much then. Let's see what you're capable of!"

Benimaru Nikaido

Benimaru: "This goes for Daimon too but I can't stand your spirit and willpower speech. Change your tune every one in a while!"
Ryo: "What's the matter? We haven't even started yet and you're already looking pale! Are you eating proper meals? You can't just be concerned with your figure! You need calories, protein... a balanced diet! Bad diet means bad willpower and only spirit and willpower matter!"
Benimaru: "That's exactly what I'm talking about! You sound like a self-help book! I don't know if you're going to try and hit me or charge me $99 for your seminar!"

Billy Kane

Ryo: "I'm not interested in getting involved with gangs and the mafia and stuff but I'll be more than happy to fight you as a practitioner of the martial arts!"
Billy: "You gotta be kidding me! I don't think anyone ever called me a martial artist before. Now let's see some of that Kyokugen style that Geese always speaks so highly of!"

Chin Gentsai

Ryo: "I know a lot about Kung Fu, but all of my knowledge just seems to go out the window when I look at you...."
Chin: "Make no mistake, young grass-jumping creature! Kung Fu is more profound than you can imagine! It would take you more than 4000 years to comprehend all of it!"
Ryo: "Then I'll fight you and learn just as much as I can from that!"

Clark Still

Ryo: "You're the polar opposite to that army buddy of yours. But, you're both quite formidable opponents."
Clark: "That is very kind of you to say, but you're not exactly a pushover yourself, either. Our manual even states that we need to approach Kyokugen fighters with utmost care. Let's see.... How should I go about this? This is making me more nervous than disarming a bomb."
Ryo: "I can't help you with that, but I can give you some advice about fighting.... Don't get hung up on the details and attack!"

Duo Lon

Duo Lon: "I can tell just by looking at you that you are strong. But not strong enough to defeat me."
Ryo: "Isn't a bit early to jump to conclusions? You might be surprised by what a proper fight can teach you."
Duo Lon: "I see... I guess there's some sense in that."
Ryo: "See? That's what so fun about fighting! So let's get started!"

Elisabeth Blanctorche

Elisabeth: "Your fists embody both vigor and simplicity.... But what you gain in simplicity, you also gain in predictability."
Ryo: "I'll admit I may be a bit too predictable, but what about you, huh? Don't they say that beauty fades?"
Elisabeth: "Let us see which of us is correct. We shall have our answer soon enough."

Evil Ash

Evil Ash: "Kyokugen Style Karate? Kyokugen means extreme and that implies limits and restrictions. What a perfect name for such a worthless piece of trash. It's good to know you have an accurate image of yourself."
Ryo: "You do not seem to understand. Kyokugen is about exceeding your limits! It's abour reaching new heights beyond your former limits, not your twisted definition!"
Evil Ash: "Well, allow me to show you the limits of being humans. Limits that you cannot possibly hope to ever exceed!"

Flames Iori

Ryo: "I know you probably don't wanna hear this, but I actually kinda enjoy fighting you. I believe that fighting against strong warriors only makes me stronger too!"
Iori: "Hmph... You "seeking true strength" types are a really pathetic bunch aren't you?"

Goro Daimon

Ryo: "Hey, if you have some free time, would care to join me on one of my ascetic sessions in the mountains? No one I know ever wants to come along. Robert and Yuri said there's no way they'd even think about it."
Daimon: "Very well. It would be my honor to join you."
Ryo: "Really!? What a relief! Now I can give my full concentration to the fight at hand!"


Ryo 1: "This is gonna sound odd coming from me but... Is there really anything to gain from trying to look like me?"
Ryo 2: "Good question... I'm wondering the same thing.I'm not letting anyone else be called "The Invincible Dragon" though."
Ryo 1: "Good call... I agree! That's one of the few things I can actually pride myself on!"

Human Saiki

Saiki: "So you say you'll never step down, no matter what you're facing? That's not courage, it's just plain stupid!"
Ryo: "I'm a simple man, I'll admit. But it's helped me reach incredible heights so far! I'll never give up! I'm gonna aim for the top, and nothing's gonna get in my way!"
Saiki: "And that's why you're going to end up stranded half-way to the top. Hahaha...Nothing but destruction awaits those who fail to learn their place!"

Hwa Jai

Hwa: ""The Invincible Dragon?" Don't make me laugh! You'd better ditch that name right now!"
Ryo: "Hey, it's not like I gave myself the nickname. Even still, it's going to take more than you to get me to change it.If you want me to change my name, why don't you try and take it from me, huh? Strength is all that matters here after all!"
Hwa Jai: "You think some karate man from some poor dojo in the middle of nowhere can defeat the True Champion!? Hehehe! Then I'll grant you wish and feed you to my Dragon Kick!"

Iori Yagami

Ryo: "Hey Yagami, be honest with me here. You know, right? You know that even if you defeat Kyo Kusanagi, your anger's still gonna be there, right? So why are you fixated on it, huh?"
Iori: "Are you trying to be helpful or something? You're pathetic. If you stand in my way, I'll end you. It's that simple."

Joe Higashi

Joe: "I'll acknowledge your spirit and willpower, but you still won't be able to defeat me!"
Ryo: "I'm intrigued, Champion. What makes you think that?"
Joe: "Because skill and willpower alone will always lose to skill, willpower, and talent combined!"
Ryo: "I think the only real difference between us is that you're way too into yourself."


Ryo: "Hey, why don't you lighten up and have some fun, huh? You're on the big stage now!"
K': "Shut up. I'm not here to have fun... So I'm gonna make this quick... Get ready."
Ryo: "You're only going to make mistakes, if you're gonna fight like that! Put some weight behind those moves if you wanna dish out some meaty punishment!"

Kim Kaphwan

Ryo: "Sorry buddy, but I don't really care about good and evil. I just want to become a better fighter. I only want to be stronger! That's all!"
Kim: "I respect the fact that you constantly seek to improve yourself... But the strong also have a duty to fulfill! This is something you must understand!"


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: "Haha, 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!"

Kula Diamond

Ryo: "Why don't you join my Kyokugen dojo? You're still young, so it should be a great experience!"
Kula: "Sure as long as Diana can join too! Kyokugen sounds great!"
Ryo: "Great! If we get more girls in dojo, I'm sure it'll make Yuri a bit less grouchy."
Kula: "So what is Kyokugen anyway? Can I eat it? Is it cold?"

Kyo Kusanagi

Ryo: "This tournament is broadcast live across the entire planet! It's the perfect chance for me to show everyone on Earth how fearsome Kyokugen Style Karate is!"
Kyo: "I'm not trying to destroy the Sakazaki family's income... But there's not a soul out there who's going to want to enroll in your school after they watch happens to Kyokugen here! Sorry, but I'm not going to act as the underdog! I've already wasted too much time here!"

Leona Heidern

Ryo: "What's the matter, huh? Those eyes of yours lack vigor. You can't win if your heart's not in it!"
Leona: "Whatever you say... This is who I am..."
Ryo: "Of course it's important to stay calm but in the end, it all comes down to spirit! Remember that!
Leona: "Are you even listening?"

Mai Shiranui

Ryo: "Thanks for always taking care of my little sis! But, I'm not gonna give you any favors here, ninja girl!"
Mai: "I wouldn't want you to. But, are you sure you wanna do this, Big Brother? I've been training with Yuri a lot, so your Kyokugen style might not work on me, you know?"
Ryo: "Don't think you've seen Kyokugen by studying my sister. Her style is far too unorthodox!


Mature: "You look so strong.... I wonder how many hits you can take. Would you be a dear and show me what you look like writhing around in pain!"
Ryo: "I'm sorry, but that's a bit too odd for my tastes. You should find someone else who's more into that kind of thing. I don't think you'll find many takers, though...."


Ryo: "I don't care if you're a cyborg or a robot! I will break you down with my fists!"
Maxima: "Hey, hey, there's no need for that! Think about what you're doing to other people, okay?"
Ryo: "Don't worry! After the match I'll stick some bandages on you and slap some new batteries in, and you'll be right as rain!"
Maxima: "You don't have any idea how a cyborg works, do you...?"

Mr. Karate

Mr. Karate: "Let me see if you have what it takes to inherit the title of the Unbeatable Karateka..."
Ryo: "Dad's Dad, and I'm me. I'm not looking to inherit anything from anyone... But I'm not about to turn my back on a good challenge."
Mr. Karate: "That's the spirit! Use all your might to crush my Demon Fist, Ryo!"

NESTS-Styled Kyo

Kyo: "Hey man... Haven't you ever wondered what's the point in following your father's footsteps?"
Ryo: "I'm not following in his footsteps. I just ended up being really good at karate somehow. Besides, if it hadn't been for karate, Yuri and I would never have survived in that town. But why do you ask? Is something bothering you?"
Kyo: "No... No, forget about it. Let's just start fighting. And let's make this a good one!"


Ryo: "'re big! As a sumo wrestler, the odds are in your favor!"
Raiden: "Don't be an idiot! I'm a pro wrestler, not a sumo wrestler!"
Ryo: "What's the difference? Either way, I'm still fighting some twice my weight and with ten times my body fat... I'm ready for you!"
Raiden: "We'll see about that! I'll mash you to a bloody pulp!"

Ralf Jones

Ryo: "I'm used to fighting with you army types, but you look like you're going to push me to the limit."
Ralf: "Of course! Who exactly are you comparing me to? I'm still on active duty -- always on the front line! Don't compare me to a reservist!"
Ryo: "I welcome any and all strong opponents. It will be nice to fight a war veteran for once!"
Ralf: "I'm not really one to talk,'re an odd one, aren't you? He he he...."

Robert Garcia

Ryo: "How many fights have we fought now? It's gotta be several hundred by now...."
Robert: "I guess so. I don't remember every single one of them, though. But I do know that I won most of them."
Ryo: "Ha ha, like heck you did! I'm the leader in this matchup, Robert!"
Robert: "Really? Well, it doesn't matter anyway. I don't care about my past records. I don't care about the past. I'm only interested in the present, Ryo! Who wants to live in the past!?"
Ryo: "You're right. It's not about who used to be stronger; it's about who's stronger now!"


Saiki: "You think strength gives you invincibility? When did humans stop envolving like this?"
Ryo: "Who can say? But the moment you underestimate your opponent is the exact moment that your strength reaches its limits!"
Saiki: "You humans have a silly answer for everything, don't you? It's such a chore to listen to!"

Shen Woo

Shen: "Kyokugen style karate... The style is known even in Shanghai... Only by name though."
Ryo: "Well how about I open a Shanghai branch to open Kyokugen style there? You could run the school after you get some lessons. How about it?"
Shen: "Are you kidding me!? I'm not gonna work for your freaking school!"
Ryo: "Of course I'm kidding about you running a school in my name. But I AM going to give you some lessons now!"

Sie Kensou

Ryo: "Your eyes look different from before. You look like you've been to Hell and back kid..."
Kensou: "That's right! Don't think I'm the same guy I used to be, I'll give you a taste of my new powers!"
Ryo: "Some things should be discarded and some should be kept. Knowing which is the most difficult thing. But you have a great teacher and some skilled companions. I look forward to seeing what will become of you!"
Kensou: "Thanks... Hey, wait a minute! What's with that tone!? You sound like you're an old wise man looking after his students! Like you're on a different level than I am!? I just told you that you're facing the new me!"
Ryo: "Even so, it will be a long time before I lie at the feet of someone as young as you."

Takuma Sakazaki

Takuma: "Ryo... I haven't told you everything I know about Kyokugen yet!"
Ryo: "I'm not going to go back to studying now! If you want to teach me, you'll have to do it through fighting now, Dad!"
Takuma: "That's my boy! Defeat me and you will learn the true essence of our fighting style!"

Terry Bogard

Terry: "Now that I think about it, we have quite a long and unusual history together, don't we? How many years has it been?"
Ryo: "I've lost count. You're right, it's been a long time. Now that we ever do anything besides fight, though..."
Terry: "That just means we were made from the same mold! So shall we begin, Ryo Sakazaki?"
Ryo: "Anytime you're ready, Terry Bogard!"


Vice: "Don't you see? No matter how many years you train, there's a concrete limit to what you humans can do!"
Ryo: "I don't buy that for a second. I believe in infinite possibilities!"
Vice: "I'll show you just how wrong you are! Humans are too weak and insignificant to ever get anywhere!"
Ryo: "And even if you do, I will keep trying to reach the highest point possible no matter what!"

Yuri Sakazaki

Ryo: "Yuri, I still don't agree with you learning karate."
Yuri: "Isn't it a bit too late for that now? You're always worrying way too much! This should be a good opportunity to show you that I hold my own as a fighter!"
Ryo: "All right, attack me with full strength! I won't hold anything back either!"
