May Lee



The most promising student of Kim Kaphwan's, May Lee was required to join Team Korea in 2001 when Jhun was wounded. Seeing her chance to finally help her hero, she eagerly joined. Kim also suggested that she kept an eye on her teammates, former criminals Chang Koehan and Choi Bounge. This suits Chang and Choi, as May doesn't feel the need to physically punish them on a regular basis like Kim does.

Despite her inexperience, May surprises the audience with her unique Tae Kwon Do style in the tournament. Kim and the others are also surprised by her achievements, and she soon gains much praise. After the tournament ends, May returns to Korea along with her partners and celebrated the end of the evil NESTS cartel. Later in The King of Fighters 2002, May Lee joins a team with Mai Shiranui and Yuri Sakazaki, replacing King
(and was marked for death by some King fanboys).

May Lee was a refreshing KOF design at the time of her debut... even though she sort of comes off as one of those weird cosplayer girls who you see at every anime convention ever, lol (not saying there's anything wrong with girls who do that, but y'know). It's cute how she thinks she's some sort of superhero... so what are her super powers anyway? Cool kicks? Idk. She doesn't really seem to have any... lol. Her yellow frog shirt is random but somehow works with her design, but those goggles are ridiculous. I'd say she looks like some sort of frog-themed superhero, especially if she put those on. I'm not sure I get it... but for some reason I still like her.

While not as deep or memorable as some other KOF characters, May Lee has a pretty cool fighting style and persona.. She helped take KOF to the next era in 2001/2002 as she showed off some pretty smooth animations.
