Also known as "Shermie of the Savagely Crazed Flash of Lightning", Orochi Shermie is the Heavenly King title of Shermie. This alternate form of Chris first appeared in The King of Fighters '97 alongside Orochi Chris and Orochi Yashiro. It's not known when Shermie realized she was a Heavenly King. At the end of the '97 tournament, Shermie, Chris, and Yashiro activate the Riot of the Blood within Leona Heidern and Iori Yagami as a part of their plan to resurrect Orochi.

When both Leona and Iori are defeated, the New Faces Team reveal themselves as the Heavenly Kings and fight the player's team. When they are defeated, Shermie and Yashiro commit suicide in order to transfer their remaining energy into Chris, thus allowing Orochi to be resurrected back into the living world via possessing Chris' body, but Orochi itself would later be sealed away by the combined efforts of Iori, Kyo Kusanagi, and Chizuru Kagura.

Due to Verse's actions during the events of The King of Fighters XIV, it is confirmed that Shermie, along with Yashiro and Chris have been brought back to life, despite Chris himself being Orochi's vessel. Shermie is apparently one who has been revived, along with her comrades Yashiro and Chris. As per her canonical appearance in SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy, some aspects of her heritage and this persona seeps into her normal form.

In KOF XV, they get the shard described to be more powerful than Gaia itself, and sets in motion to end mankind all at once. However, they end up in a pyrrhic victory where they (and Goenitz) are the only living things remaining on the now-desolate Earth.

The alternate super-powered version of Shermie that we didn't know we needed. Do we need her? I personally prefer the original spunky / dancing / pro-wrestling version of Shermie, but Orochi Shermie offers a completely different mood and playstyle entirely. It actually reminds me of Jean Grey turning into Phoenix, another tragic but cool storyline.
