Hero Overview

Sorry about that! Are you hurt? I guess I got a bit carried away!
~ Athena Asamiya's win quote from The King of Fighters '98.

Athena Asamiya is a major character originally from the former SNK's video game Psycho Soldier and a descendant of Princess Athena from the game Athena. Her box is upgraded because of the Love Heart Arrow made of Miracle Light Bouquet and the Silver Crystal. She is the leader of the KOF team in SNK OVAs.

She is voiced by Haruna Ikezawa in Japanese ever since The King of Fighters '98 and Kelly Metzger in the VIZ dub onwards.

She has also been voiced by Rushina (who is an anonymous SNK employee) in Psycho Soldier, Reiko Fukui in The King of Fighters '94 and Metal Slug Defense, Masae Yumi in Neo Geo CD Special, Moe Nagasaki in The King of Fighters '95, Tamao Sato in The King of Fighters '96 and Neo Print, Yukina Kurusu in The King of Fighters '97 and The King of Fighters: Kyo, as well as Feng Youwei performing her Chinese voice in Neo Print, and her English voices in the Maximum Impact series were Robyn Gryphe in the first game and Lily Kong in the sequel.

About

She later appears in The King of Fighters series of fighting games as a female fighter character and has appeared in every one of its editions. She was also given her own RPG game Athena: Awakening from the Ordinary Life in 1999 released only in Japan for the Sony PlayStation. She is perhaps best known for changing her outfit and hairstyle for virtually every new KOF game.

Athena was an anticipated character for The King of Fighters lineup and developers relate that they are constantly working to keep her in the series. Throughout the years, her sailor uniform outfit was a frequent request from Japanese fans that was denied due to the belief that it wouldn't translate well with the overseas audience (this kept up until recent installments). Her official nickname is The Psychic Powered Idol.

In the character popularity poll on Neo Geo Freak's website, she was voted as the 10th favorite character with a total of 1,020 votes.

Story

Athena Asamiya is originally from the action arcade game Psycho Soldier (1986) and is a descendant of Princess Athena from the game Athena (also released in 1986). Athena also starred in her own RPG called Athena: Awakening from the Ordinary Life, which was only released in Japan on PlayStation.

A Japanese schoolgirl, Athena Asamiya teamed up with her friend Sie Kensou to fight in the name of justice. In Psycho Soldiers, she was one of the "heroes of light" who defended the world from the Shiguma forces. Her psychic powers are believed to be transmigrated to her rather than inherited by her family.

She became a student of Kensou's Kenpo teacher, Chin Gentsai. She has spent most of her life secluded in China's mountains training. By the time of the KOF NESTS saga, Athena became a famous pop idol in Japan. Athena is well aware of Kensou's crush on her but usually ignores his romantic advances since he embarrasses her.

Trivia

  • She is also shares date of birth by Sayaka Maizono in Danganronpa and of Saki Tsuzura in Arcana Heart.
  • Her childhood best friend is Sulia.
  • She is a singer at the end of the 4th and 5th SNK OVAs. The 4th one is a singer along with Shion, and the 5th one along with Alice, Jenet, Love, Lily, and Sulia. She becomes a lead singer in the Miraculous Animals series.
