King of Fighters 98', also known as 98 Gedou Wang (98 格鬥王) and later reissued as King of Fighters 2000, is an unlicensed Sega Mega Drive fighting game. It should not be confused with the "real" The King of Fighters '98 which bypassed Sega consoles.

Though the name would suggest The King of Fighters '98 is an attempt to port official game to the Mega Drive, it is actually a completely original fighter. Some stages are stolen from official games in the series, but the cast of characters also includes fighters seen in the Street Fighter series.



From Fatal Fury
  • Terry Bogard (as TREEY)
  • Andy Bogard
  • Joe Higashi
From Street Fighter
  • Ryu
  • Cammy (as CANME)
  • Guile
From Art of Fighting
  • Ryo Sakazaki
  • Takuma Sakazaki
  • Robert Garcia (as LOBAUT)

And there are each of a different color of the character.
