* SNK never shared any full-body and hi-res versions of the KOF UM 2002 Characters illustrations. The big SNK fan Topdog4815 edited the official artworks and added the missing bodyparts as good as he could. We thought they are really good enough to be shared here for other fans as well and recommend to have a look at his gallery here!
