Antonov is a Russian powerhouse and the organizer of The King of Fighters XIV tournament. He serves as the sub-boss of KOF XIV. A mysterious billionaire and self-proclaimed "first champion", Antonov bought the rights of the King of Fighters brand to host the new tournament. After the tournament, he uses his wealth to buy land to help Zarina (after a bit of coercion on her part) protect her pet, Coco.

I'm sure there's no substance abuse going on here.... lol. Muscle-dude is your KOF XIV sub-boss, and he certainly looks the part. Someone pointed out on TFG's Facebook that Antonov looks surprisingly like Triple H. (His face in that portrait artwork mainly, lol). Similar to Triple H's current position in WWE, he's also the "organizer" of the tournament. Interesting.

Antonov might seem generic at first glance, but he turned out to be one of the most charismatic SNK bosses in recent times. Antanov's voice and mannerisms during the KOF14 cutscenes reminds me of Heihachi Mishima's comedy moments in TEKKEN endings and cutscenes. Also, I can respect a dude that fights with a cigar in his mouth... with the cigar smoke coming out of his ears. His power & wrestling based moveset is also pretty entertaining and impressive. That KOF belt design is also pretty sick. All in all, Antonov is a solid and satisfying sub-boss for KOF14... and ironically, much much better than the game's final boss. >_>
