Shermie rounds out the "New Face Team" of KOF, her partners being Yashiro and Chris. Shermie, Yashiro and Chris are in a music band together called "CYS" (based on their first initials). Shermie plays the keyboards. They enter KOF '97 tournament due to Yashiro's grudge against rival band player, Iori Yagami. Even though Shermie plays in a band, her day job is fashion design. Her fighting style is pro-wrestling, but little is known of where she learned her technique.

Shermie's true origins are shrouded in mystery, but she is one of the Four Heavenly Kings of the Orochi. When Goenitz was killed, the remaining three arranged the next tournament to gather energy for Orochi's reincarnation. Following this event, Shermie became Orochi Shermie. It appears Shermie ultimately took her life to revive Orochi.

Shermie is one of those designs that defines the KOF series. Sexy, stylish, and 100% original. Her cool mannerisms and constant dancing compliment her unique fighting style. She actually has some of the best dance moves I've ever seen from a 2D sprite. As far as fighting style goes, Shermie's stylish gymnastics techniques and interesting throws & kicks make her stand out. Visually, she's obviously a cool design...  her hairstyle in particular really defines her. Can she even see through her epic bangs? Doesn't matter. Her bangs are epic.

Shermie's 2D sprite wasn't updated much until KOF2002, where she got a lot of new animations. I think she would've made a good character to crossover in CVS series, but it wasn't in the cards for her. On that note, her Card Fighters Clash card is one of my favorites to use in the game. Her card's "BE GENTLE TO ME!" ability is top tier... I always have three Shermie cards in my deck. Among my friends, I was the first to discover the awesome power of Shermie's card (preventing the opponent from attacking). All in all, she's a great design that stands the test of time.
