Kimberly invited herself to become Guy's
student, who is the 39th successor to Bushinryu after defeating
his master Zeku, the 39th successor.
Kimberly had an ordinary upbringing, but she's a prodigy who graduated college
early and now wants to be a full-fledged ninja. She is infatuated with '80s pop
culture when the portable cassette player was at its peak
popularity, hence why she always carries one with her.

Kimberly is a
perfect newcomer for Street Fighter 6. Her visual design and
animations are jaw-dropping right from the get-go... and casual fans won't even
realize many of her inspirations are taken straight from Final Fight's Guy
and Zeku. Even the sound of her attacks
when she hits opponents sounds like Final Fight. While her Bushinryu inspirations are as clear as
day, Kim really stands out on her own with undeniably
stylish, interesting, and super entertaining mannerisms and animations.
Kimberly and KOF XV's Isla should have a graffiti
battle in Capcom Vs. SNK 3. Not to throw unnecessary shade on SNK...
but Kimberly's animation quality, moveset, and Super Art are quite a few levels
above Isla's. This might be one of the prime examples
of how Capcom's 3D animation is currently leagues ahead of SNK's.
