Character Description

Iori Yagami (八神 庵, Yagami Iori) is a video game character who made his first appearance in the Neo Geo fighting game, The King of Fighters '95. He is a central recurring character and the initial enemy (and eventual rival) of Kyo Kusanagi.

He is the heir to one of the three clans that sealed the legendary snake entity, Orochi, 1,800 years ago. His clan, formerly known as the Yasakani (八尺瓊, Yasakani), wields pyrokinetic powers. They keep the seal over Orochi intact with help from the Kusanagi and Yata clans using three ancient artifacts. His family's treasure is the Yasakani Jewel (八尺瓊曲玉, Yasakani no Magatama) and his family crest is the crescent moon, which he wears on the back of his jacket. He also wears a plain silver ring around his left middle finger; the significance of the ring, if any, is unknown.

Iori Yagami

Iori is a arrogant man who also wields pyrokenisis like Kyo, who happenes to be his rival. He's the heir of one of the Yagami Clans and he didn't like violence, and dosen't care about special things. He was later joined with Mature and Vice to make the Yagami Team, but in some games that starres him, he always fights alone. The worst thing is that he once possessing the Orochi power and caused chaos!

Iori Yagami (Smash)

His Up Special, the Oniyaki looks exactly like Kyo, but the difference is that it deals a single hit and has more horizontal movement, but his vertical height is worse than Kyo's. But is incredibly strong! And his Yani Barai also has differences, is it is weaker, but much faster than Kyo's, just try not to get burned!
