Origin

The King of Fighters '94

Rugal Bernstein is one of the many boss-characters in the King of Fighters series, and the very first of a series of bosses. He originates from The King of Fighters '94, where he brings the winning team of the King of Fighters tournament onto battle ship, the Black Noah, where he threatens to turn the losing team into statues. If playing as Kyo's team, he has also captured Kyo's father, Saisyu Kusanagi.

In the original game, he has two forms, but mainly his first form is just a warm-up, as he does not use any special moves in his first form. His second form, however, is VERY brutal, introducing his notorious Genocide Cutter that used to be able to deal as much as 50% damage in a single hit. The developers did admit that they overdid the damage ratio for him.

Since then, Rugal has gained numerous improvements to his moveset, most notably a rising Genocide Cutter, Beast Destruction (a multi-hit approach move) and Gigantic Pressure (a super version of God Press)

Rugal appears in The King of Fighters '94, '95, '98, 2002 and the Capcom VS SNK series. Since he is canonically dead after The King of Fighters '95, his alternate forms have been known as Omega Rugal.

In Capcom vs SNK2, Rugal possesses an alternate form known as Ultimate Rugal (known as God Rugal outside of the U.S.), who serves as one of two potential final bosses, the other being Shin Akuma.

In M.U.G.E.N, Rugal Bernstein has been made by various authors.

Rugal Bernstein XI (Mr. X-File)

Rugalxi-stand

Rugal Bernstein XI by Mr. X File is a King of Fighters XI-styled Rugal, with his moves based off his King of Fighters '98 incarnation. His AI is extremely good at pressuring the opponent, and makes good use of the unblockable Rugal Execution grab to punish blocking.
