Verse (バース, Bāsu) is the main antagonist and final boss in The King of Fighters XIV.
He is voiced by Yusaku.
Due to Ash Crimson changing his history by erasing his ancestry for being Saiki's descendant from the timeline, Verse was created. Within its being, it traps the souls of fighters from the past tournaments such as Orochi and others, including Ash. A fragment of Verse is implanted inside Shun'ei on his left-half. As a being that disrupted time and space, various fighters from the tournament join to stop it. Nakoruru travels across dimensions to repair the damage caused by its presence.
When Verse defeated, these souls are released and return to their former bodies, which triggers a world-wide search for the remaining revived warriors. In Verse's ending, its remains land at Australia's Ayers Rock implying its possible return.
Verse is an embodiment of rage like a fire. It can speak human language albeit sparingly and expresses its desire to destroy everything. Due to the numerous souls contained within, Verse is unable to fully prevent their personalities from completely seeping through its control and they can temporarily manifest as a result.
Verse's power is connected to one of Shun'ei's powers, as both powers have a symbiotic form of each other.
- Transdimensional manipulation - Verse is able to change the fabric of reality.
- Soul Container - Verse contains the souls the dead and those who are trapped in the time warp.
- Pyrokinesis - Verse can control fire.
- Levitation - Verse can fly.
Just like Shun'ei, it is able to conjure a barrage of fists.
