The King of Fighters '95 (ザ・キング・オブ・ファイターズ’95) is the second in the The King of Fighters series, and was released for the Sega Saturn in 1995.

The game was released in Europe and Japan, but not North America. Subsequent entries in the series would remain as Japanese exclusives, bar The King of Fighters: Dream Match 1999 which would see a release in North America but not Europe. The Saturn version marks as one of the few games which use the Twin Advanced ROM System peripheral.

In Japan this game was later bundled with its sequels - The King of Fighters '96 and The King of Fighters '97.
