Yashiro Nanakase is one of the playable characters in the King of Fighters fighting game series by SNK. He was introduced in The King of Fighters’97 as part of the “New Faces” Team. Yashiro returned only in the three “Dream Match” KOF games 98,2002 and Neowave and the spinoff title The King of Fighters: Kyo (1998).


 Yashiro and his team members Chris and Shermie resurrected Orochi successfully in KOF’97  but after their master was defeated Yashiro and the others sacrificed themselves to ensure that Orochi would survive. 

Somehow him and the other members from the New Faces / Orochi Team are back in The King of Fighters XV (2002)
