Kula Diamond (クーラ・ダイアモンド, Kūra Daiamondo?) first appeares as the sub-boss in The King of Fighters 2000; she enters as a normal participant in her other appearances. Her original hair color is chestnut brown, but it changes to a light blue when she activates her ice powers. She was designed to be the antagonistic foil to K', in an attempt to better develop characteristics of the NESTS cartel. She was specially made with attempts to depict a "14-year-old girl" with "appropriately girlish" gestures with help from newly hired female staff.
Story[edit | edit source]
She is a being created by NESTS to exterminate the cartel's traitor, K'. Despite the fact that their subject was a mindless puppet with no sign of emotions, the NESTS cartel created an android called Candy Diamond to monitor Kula's behavior and to ensure that she would accomplish her missions. When Kula destroys the main Zero Cannon, Candy shields her descent from space, sacrificing her body as it is badly burned from Earth's atmosphere. Diana, a former top executive of NESTS acts as the girl's guardian in the series. Kula is often ordered to exterminate other traitors to NESTS but has been known to disobey her orders for the sake of others. After NESTS' destruction, she allies on friendly terms with her target, K' and his companions. Her seiyu is Yumi Kakazu, and her voice actress in English-language adaptations is Kat Cassteneda.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Before being a killer, Kula is a child. While working for NESTS or for Diana and Foxy, she would fail to kill anyone she finds unworthy. During her time with NESTS, her feelings were repressed, as she was portrayed as a cold girl executing her mission. Since joining K', her feelings are starting to appear again as shown in her The King of Fighters XI ending.
Powers[edit | edit source]
- Create Ice - Kula can create ice out of nowhere.
- Ice Breath - Kula can transform her breath into ice.

- Ice Attacks - Kula can create ice spikes around her hands and transform her hair into ice spikes that can push everything even to the weights of Maxima and Daimon.

Fighting Style[edit | edit source]
As the Anti-K', her fighting style is primarily based on K's, but adapted to her ice-based powers. She also fights using her ice skates, which are able to cut easily through flesh. She has high flexibility, which allows her to kick high and with ease, so she can use her skates to their full extent. Some of her moves also resemble ice dancing. She also employs the help of her friends, Foxy, Candy and Diana, primarily the latter.
