When Yashiro became aware that he was, a Heavenly King is unknown. To bring back Orochi, Yashiro, Shermie, and Chris awaken the Riot of the Blood in Iori Yagami and Leona Heidern after the 1997 tournament. In KOFXV, they activate the shard, which is said to be capable of eradicating humanity at once and be more potent than Gaia herself. The only living things left on the now-desolate Earth are them and Goenitz. Therefore, their victory is ultimately a pyrrhic one. Orochi Yashiro is now questioning whether what they did was correct because, in his opinion, the Earth without humanity is boring.


Orochi Yashiro devotes himself to his master and his mission to exterminate humanity as a Heavenly King. He is much crueller and openly expresses his disgust with others. Yashiro is torn, though, because he has grown to appreciate human civilization and considers a world without humans boring.


Yashiro abandons his striking technique in favor of a grappling-only approach, employing his newly gained superpower to his advantage.

Orochi Yashiro is a pressure-based grappler who seeks to duke it out in midrange and capitalize off any opening to get his game started. With a simple game plan, many options, and congratulatory versatility, Orochi Yashiro can only be described as a menace that significantly rewards players who have fast thinking and the ability for high APM aggressive gameplay.

Essentially, be it point or mid, Orochi Yashiro is a force to be reckoned with due to having things most other grapplers wish they had.


Orochi Yashiro has spiky white hair and wears a distinctive leather jacket of ancient oriental design and a short cape.
