This is a summary of the tier list for all global fighters for KOF All star. If you don't see your fighter, that means he/she is not very strong in the Live PvP meta currently, and therefore not listed. That doesn't mean he/she isn't good in PvE or PvAI (Arena and League Match). PvP mostly requires a few key things, that includes:
  • Ability to combo skills and normal attacks
  • Super Armor and Immunity availability
