BIO:

The true origins of Yashiro are shrouded in mystery. He eventually met Chris and Shermie and formed a rock band with them, with him playing the guitar. They were preparing to perform when the club they were scheduled at canceled them in favor of a jazz band featuring Iori Yagami. Upset at their loss and angered by "the man with red hair", Yashiro and his band steal the invitations from the American Sports Team and enter the KOF tournament. During the tournament's duration, they remember their duties as the Four Heavenly Kings of Orochi and work to resurrect their lord by gathering fighters' energy. They succeed but, after Orochi's defeat and subsequent concealment, the trio sacrifice themselves to ensure their lord's survival.

Yashiro has a very odd taste in clothing, but some would say he's a rock star so he can get away with it. His flamboyant style also defines the King of Fighters series and he's been a memorable character since his debut in the fan favorite KOF '97. In terms of fighting style, Yashiro definitely has some unique moves & mannerisms in the fighting game universe. His ultra powerful Orochi form is also pretty cool.

On a side note.... Visually, there seems to be two different versions of Yashiro (and I'm not talking about his Orochi form). The artists either draw him "good looking" or  just plain "ugly"... lol. XD Yeah, he looks a bit funky in some artworks, but he usually has the sexy thing going on. lol. On a side side note: Yashiro's card in Card Fighters Clash is one of the BEST in the game! A must have in your Card Fighters deck! ;)
