Ninon Beart is a fictional character from the SNK Playmore's fighting game series KOF: Maximum Impact, part of The King of Fighters series. She is the younger sister of Mignon Beart and appears as an unlockable playable character in KOF: Maximum Impact 2. Ninon also appears in the dating simulation game, Days of Memories~Pure White Angels.
Similar to Nagase, her design was pulled from Falcoon's storage of illustrations that were unused from previous works. She was created to flesh out Mignon's backstory, as she serves as a rival as well as a second account to Mignon's magical progress. Her first in-game model put a heavy strain on their computers' rendering compacity, and thus required several retakes.
Ninon is Mignon Beart's sister and a powerful dark sorceress. She follows her sister around and usually berates Mignon's childish antics. Though her tricks and pranks on her sibling suggest otherwise, Ninon doesn't despise her sister entirely and sees her as a rival. Their clashing banter is how the sisters normally interact and oddly show their care for one another.
Ninon might also have a crush on Rock Howard. In KOF: Maximum Impact 2, Ninon hints to Rock that he is, indeed, her "type". Rock has showed no response to this comment.
In an original side story written by Akihiko Ureshino, she briefly met Goenitz's ghost. He had no memory of his previous life but he did respond to the words, "Wildly-Blowing Wind".
She is, in terms of personality, the exact opposite from her sister as she is a cool and mature young lady. She dresses in Gothic Lolita clothing, greatly contradicting the cheerful idol-style clothing her sister wears. She is also more adept at magic than her sister, a trait that she often refers to hauntingly in a show of superiority. To Ninon's chagrin, it is Mignon who once again receives an invitation to the KOF tournament. When speaking normally, Ninon usually ends her sentences with "shi", which notes a tone of apathy and literally translates to "death" in Japanese.
