The King of Fighters is a fighting game released by SNK for the Neo Geo arcade and home consoles. It is the first game of The King of Fighters series, done by the same company.

The game is a fictional crossover with many characters from SNK's previous fighting games, Fatal Fury and Art of Fighting. There are even modernized versions of their pre-Neo Geo games: Ikari Warriors and Psycho Soldier. There are also original characters in this series.

The game was converted for Neo Geo AES and Neo Geo CD after the releases for Arcade. In 2004, to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the series, SNK released a remake titled The King of Fighters '94 Rebout, featuring the original game and a newer version with high definition graphics.
