The King of Fighters XV

OverviewStrategyDataCombosReplays

A mysterious young man who teamed up with Ángel this KOF. His goggles and mantle compose his trademark design, and he fights foes with his transforming arm.
Unknown to most, however, is that he is actually NESTS' 9999th "perfected" clone of Kyo Kusanagi. Formerly known as K9999, he has adopted a new identity in an effort to hide himself.

Gameplay Overview

Krohnen is a character best suited for players with confidence in their defensive game. His lackluster air-to-airs forces him to play slightly more grounded and reactive to contest the opponent's air approaches. His toolkit seems geared towards utilizing fast pokes and anti-airs which he can convert into considerable damage with some meter expenditure.
Pros Cons
  • Great Normals: To the jealousy of many, Kronhen's normals are all fantastic and each offer him something valuable to his kit. His cl.D is a 17 frame overhead that can OTG, his air punches are fantastic and scary jumpins, his cl.C is a fantastic hit-confirm button, and his 2C is a scary midrange sweep.
  • Harassment: Krohnen's drill normals and his variety of long-range pokes make it very easy for him to control the midrange and harass his opponents to death. His drill normals also build good guard bar on hit, making it difficult for turtling opponents to survive his onslaught. He also has good options for dealing with fireballs despite lacking one himself, meaning he can survive fireball pressure quite well.
  • Big Damage With Meter: Krohnen has fantastic meter dump opportunities. With meter his damage also skyrockets, as it allows him to cancel his DP into 236236 A/C very easily for a big kill confirm. His metered BnB also allows him to end it at any time while always dealing respectable damage depending on the amount of meter he puts in, letting him easily retain a high threat level throughout the match.
  • Rewarding Offense: Due to Heat Shield being his default ender, most of Kronhen's combos end in hard knockdown very close to him. This allows him to immediately continue his offense with a safejump and makes him a monster when he gets ahead. Being able to switch between blockstrings, frametraps, staggers, and pressure resets allow him to establish his pressure easily as well.
  • Low Damage Without Meter: Krohnen relies heavily on his EX moves to convert into big damage and supers to push for a kill confirm. As a result, his meterless damage is very low.
  • Bad Anti-Air and Air-to-Air Game: Anti-airing effectively requires strong fundamentals due to his reliance on Heat Shield, which is extremely punishable on block or whiff. Meanwhile, his Air-to-air game relies heavily on jump CD which starts up rather slowly. Kronhen likes to fight on the ground, where his drill normals can harass the enemy- taking to the air severely weakens him.
  • Bad Blowback: The one awful normal in Kronhen's kit is his CD. It has horrendous range and leaves him wide open for a punish. Don't use it. As a result his Shatter Strike also sucks, but you have Heat Shield for defense. Use that instead.

  • Multi-hitting and fast with a relatively generous hitbox and activation range. Krohnen's best combo starter. Try to land these in punishes, after jumpins, or as a frame trap after a close light attack. Multiple hits provides ample time to hit confirm into 3D.

80 [50] High super 17 6 - Hard Knockdown (+44) -2 Low (After the first couple of frames) 80 [0] 120
  • A close-range overhead attack which is very hard to react to. Capable of hitting opponents off the ground (OTG) for additional damage while giving time for Krohnen to set up a safe jump as well. Can be hit confirmed into OTG climax anywhere on the screen and combos into itself if done while opponent is cornered. Many characters cannot punish this move on block. Krohnen has no low hurtbox during this move allowing it to beat 2B mashing.

  • The neutral. Longest non slide non whip button in the game and the first hit is cancellable. Krohnen's hurtbox drops very low for this attack allowing it to low-profile many pokes. Due to the low profile and high reward, this is an important tool in neutral for Krohnen that helps him absolutely dominate the ground game and outpoke basically everything. Can even go under some fireballs. If he lands this close enough it can even go into his DP loops. Nothing short of fantastic.

  • Multi-hitting jump normal that is active until Krohnen reaches the ground. Only the first hitbox must be blocked high. This is a very useful attack when going for hop pressure on a close-range grounded opponent due to its downward-pointing angle. Scales combo damage heavily due to its multiple hits.

  • Downward-pointing kick attack that can be used to cross up. Due to its low hitstun Krohnen is susceptible to throws as he lands if this hits early on a standing opponent. Krohnen's fastest air normal but its lower angle limits its use as an air-to-air attack.

  • Multi-hitting jump normal that is active until Krohnen reaches the ground. Only the first hitbox must be blocked high. Similar to jump A in its uses but angled a bit more outwards making it better suited for opponents that are further away or even as an air-to-air. Scales combo damage a bit due to its multiple hits.

Fantastic poke that can cover the hop range while advancing and doesn't leave Krohnen in a bad position on block. Vulnerable to low profile attacks and full jumps. Useful to fish for Quick Max activations or super cancels for larger reward on hit.

  • Krohnen's low slide. Great combo tool when canceled into from normals as it becomes special cancelable. Special cancel can be delayed to allow Krohnen to slide further towards the opponent before performing the special move. Decent poke in neutral if spaced in a way to keep him safe and can be used in this way to sneak in Quick Max activations against standing opponents.

  • Short-range grounded fireball that hits multiple times. Krohnen builds meter even when whiffing unlike other fireballs giving him a slight edge in fireball clashes
  • A version can be used to extend pressure strings while leaving a small gap. Can also combo off heavy attacks for easy hit confirms into super.
  • C version starts up rather slowly which leaves him vulnerable to hops if used during pressure strings. If blocked Krohnen is at a large advantage and it also knocks down on hit allowing for some juggles if done while opponent is cornered.
  • EX version crumples on hit and is Krohnen's main combo tool due to its ease of use and versatile followups.

  • Krohnen becomes briefly invulnerable and creates a sphere of fire around himself which damages opponents that come in contact with it. All versions can neutralize fireballs (even EX and some super fireballs!) allowing Krohnen to build meter safely if opponent is throwing fireballs from far away.
  • A version only has upper body invincibility but is incredibly fast - phenomenal anti-air tool which can be converted into big reward with super cancels.
  • C version has full body invincibility but starts up much slower than the A version. Useful as a reversal and in combos as it does more damage than the A version. Launches higher than the A version which can allow for better juggles in certain situations.
  • EX version has full body invincibility while retaining the A version's speed making it useful as both an anti-air and reversal. Additionally it launches the opponent for juggles.

Super active reversal that deals good damage. EX version is frame 4 and leads to a million damage. One of, if not the best DP in the game.

  • Krohnen hops a set distance towards the opponent and then performs a slash in front of him.
  • B version allows for juggles if done close and combos from heavy normals. Okay tool to throw out very occasionally due to its safety but do not overuse it as it's high commitment for low reward.
  • D version is an overhead that starts up rather slowly but rewards a combo on hit and advantage on block. Decent move to use very sparingly to keep opponents on their toes but highly telegraphed so don't overuse it. Hard knockdown on air hit allowing for a close D OTG.
  • EX version is projectile invincible and starts up pretty slowly. Must be done early in response to a projectile to punish but rewards a combo if successful. Strong combo tool due to its ground bounce property.

  • A much larger version of Krohnen's Heat Shield with considerable invincibility.
  • A and C versions are great combo tools. Can be used as an anti-air or reversal but outside of a few niche situations it's generally better to use Heat Shield and then cancel it into this move for more damage.
  • AC version has mostly the same use cases as the non-EX versions albeit with better numbers across the board.

  • Krohnen turns his arm into a gun and shoots in a straight line ahead of him. Useful to punish fireballs on reaction, chip damage, or very niche punish situations.
  • B and D versions fire multiple times but the shots have a short travel time. Due to its multi-hit property and the pushback on block this move is decent for chipping out very low health opponents. If they have meter they can guard cancel roll to punish.
  • BD version allows you to hold the button(s) down to charge up the shot - giving it additional damage based on the time spent charging. The shot has no travel time and will be released the moment you release the button. This version will beat fireballs more reliably due to its speed. If Advanced Canceled into from Infernal Prominence, be sure to hold one or both kick buttons until the opponent falls closer to the ground.

Notes

Alternate input for Super Special Moves

As it stands, while the inputs for Krohnen's SDMs have been simplified, it's still possible to do the classic inputs for K9999's/Nameless' old supers. By doing Infernal Prominence as Db.gifHcb.gifDf.gif + A.gif / C.gif, the move will be performed as per usual. The same also goes for Fusion Blaster as well. Calamity Overdrive can also be done as Dn.gifFd.gifDf.gif+A.gif+B.gif+C.gif+D.gif like with K9999's and Nameless' SDMs back in Vanilla '02 and UM, respectively. These alternative inputs don't affect the properties of these moves in any way and are just there as a fun Easter Egg.

Changes from K9999/Nameless

  • First and foremost, EX Moves. Krohnen now has access to EX Moves at any given time at the cost of half a bar. EX Blaze Thrower crumples the opponent on hit, EX Heat Shield launches the opponent high (making it especially good in the corner), and EX Strike Slash leads to a Ground Bounce on hit, for more combos.
  • Krohnen's Super Specials also have MAX versions as well. Special mention to MAX Fusion Blaster which, compared to the normal version, only deals one hit but can be held down. It won't lead to a Guard Crush if it's held down all the way, though. Or deplete the opponent's Guard meter, for that matter.
  • Updated throw animations. Front throw has him grab the opponent by neck hold and kick them into the dirt. For the back throw, Krohnen offhandedly bashes the opponent with his elbow.
  • As is the norm in XV, Krohnen's standing B and C are Special Cancelable on Hit. Though only on the first hit in the latter case.
  • Like Nameless, Krohenen's slide is always df+D as opposed to being his stand-in for a generic cr.D sweep. Unlike Nameless, however, it's Special Cancelable on hit, as well as MAX Cancelable.
  • qcb+K has a completely new animation compared to either of his predecessors -- Krohnen leaps towards the opponent and slices them with his mechanical arm. The B version is much faster than either K9999 or Nameless, being great combo filler and leading to a free OTG in the corner.
  • Close D hits OTG - can be followed up with another cl.D or Calamity Overdrive on hit, which also hits OTG.
  • Unfortunately, Nameless' f+B is gone -- that's been given back to K' as his new (old) b+B.
  • Visually, Krohnen's animations are a composite of his predecessors - he has K9999's thuggish attitude and identity, but a lot of his attacks are also derived from Nameless. Blaze Thrower (qcf+P) has him throw fire at the opponent like Nameless while Calamity Overdrive has Krohnen attack the opponent with a mechanical arm of the "I can't believe it's not Doc Ock's arm from Spider-Man 2!" flavor, among other things.
  • Finally, he looks more like a biker now.
