A Critical Hit, as the name implies, is any attack that deals more than the usual amount of damage at a random chance. Although common in many RPG games, this mechanic appears in only a few fighting games, including The King of Fighters and Melty Blood.
Critical Hits in The King of Fighters
In The King of Fighters 97 and The King of Fighters 98, only certain characters are able to land critical hits. One such character is Shingo Yabuki.
Critical Hits in Melty Blood
In Melty Blood, all attacks have a small chance of inflicting a critical hit. Critical hits will deal x1.15 (15% additional damage) the attack's normal damage.
