How King joined the Tourney
In The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, King faced Marduk in a grueling battle that ironically resulted in a friendship between the two after the fight. Upon returning from the ring, Marduk was ambushed by someone dressed as Armor King. King was furious and vowed to find the culprit, but was unsuccessful in his attempt.
With the world engulfed in war, King all but gave-up looking for Marduk's attacker when he received an invitation from Marduk to join him in the Smash Bros. Tourney. If they both participated in the tournament, perhaps the Armor King imposter would appear once again. With that hope in his mind, King decided to take part in the contest.
Pine Sword (Neutral)
King uses a wooden sword to attack his opponents.
Headbutt Throw (Side)
King will spin like a top, sucking his opponent toward him. He will then finish off by throwing a palm strike toward the opponent, launching them.
High Jump (Up)
King does a high jump.
Spinning Piledriver (Down)
King grabs his opponent and holds them upside down by the waist, then leaps into the air in a sitting position with the opponent's head between his legs. Spinning rapidly, Zangief slams the opponent headfirst into the ground for massive damage.
Hyper Fire (Hyper Smash)
Based on Zangief's Street Fighter IV Super Combo, King attempts to grab the opponent; if successful, he performs two Atomic Suplexes, finishing with a Spinning Piledriver.
Oak Fist (Final Smash)
Based on Zangief's Street Fighter IV Ultra Combo, the move starts with King spreading out his arms and attempting to grab the opponent. If successful, King goes behind the opponent and lands a German Suplex. He then lifts the opponent above his head and performs a reverse back breaker on them. King then flings the opponent in the air and jumps up to grab them and finish them with a devastating Spinning Piledriver.
