It's cool that Kim Wu fights with nunchakus and all... but her design was pretty generic from the very beginning - especially when compared some of the more original and memorable Killer Instinct characters (many of whom sadly went missing in KI2). Kim Wu has a few cool moves in KI2 I suppose, but her overall moveset and fighting style just lacks excitement. Something's also kinda "funny" about her face, like Maya, she has a slight case of man-face. (Although, I've seen worse over in the Mortal Kombat realm). 3D rendering was difficult in the 90's... lol.

Kim's redesign in KI 2013 / Season 3 fell a bit short, in my opinion. There's too much going on with her default outfit... and it's just plain ugly. Even worse is her facial rendering, which looks like it was made by a beginner in 3D modeling. Sorry, but it's just plain bad (even in max graphics settings). Yeah, she looked better in KI2. On the bright side, her moveset & special effects within her moves are pretty cool in the new KI
