When she first debuted, I was excited to see KOF try a different character from the normal fare. Whip is one of the few KOF characters who uses a weapon... on that note, an incredibly long-range weapon (suddenly 100% fair game in KOF tournaments? I call shenanigans... lol.) Heidern must've bent the rules somehow. Anyhow, Whip even pulls out a freakin' gun and fires it during one of her super moves... Get outta herrrre. Crazy stuff for KOF!

While she's kinda "cheap" in some ways and her name lacks originality, Whip is memorable in the series. Worth noting, it's nice to see a fighting game female not ultra-sexualized to gain attention. ;) Much respect to this classy gal here. Her confidence is sexy. Also, Whip's original 2D sprite animation in KOF '99 and onwards was some of SNK's best sprite-work to date and really made a statement at the time. The majority of her moveset is nicely designed for a 2D character. Whip's epic in King of Fighters XIV worked pretty well in 3D. Nice to see her make a proper return after all these years.
