So, I've seen this subject all over the other threads, but I haven't seen this here. So, I'm wondering, why do you guys play/main Kokoro? What's so special about her? Personality? Play-style? For me, I love her sarcastic personality so much. Her win quote is so insulting. She may be a bit of an air head at times too, but it's adorable. As for her play-style, I love aggression and quick damage. So, what about you guys?

I've thought about this too before. Before DOA5 vanilla, I've never played Kokoro and I mained Hayate and Tina. I don't exactly remember why I chose her as soon as I started DOA5 up lol, but I'm glad I did though. I've really grown to love her play style. She is considered "low tier" but I don't mind that because I like those kind of characters and people tend to underestimate them. But in all honesty, tier doesn't matter I just like playing this character so no matter how good or bad she is i'm not dropping her.

I dont know about you guys, but playing her feels like a chore. Of course the more difficult a character is to play against people the more I get interested. Instead of just relying on BS setups that magically grant automatic damage (cough cough Jann Lee) You have to use brain power and make a way to continue and oppress your opponent.
I just feel relaxed playing Kokoro.

Even though people have told me to drop Kokoro several times cause of how supposedly bad she is... maybe its not Kokoro. But maybe it's the player using her.

I remember exactly of why I played Kokoro. At first I bought DOA5 (my first DOA game) just because I like Ayane from Ninja Gaiden series. I intended to play as Ayane, however, when I started the game on campaign mode in order to learn how to play this game. As Kokoro is one of the very first female character on campaign mode (which also serve as tutorial) I have no doubt that I fall in love with her. It is kind of my first impression with her feeling that she is so cute.

It take like almost 10 months for me to force myself to try to pick Ayane and other characters in order to learn their moves.

For me it's well everything about her. Design, personality, fighting style, everything! When I first saw Kokoro I just knew she would be my new favorite character in the game because of the way her fighting style looked.. and I thought she was so cute! XD I think her play style fits me the most out of all characters I play in DOA and probably any other fighting game I've played. I like using characters that are played aggressively and not have to be really defensive all the time.

I really liked her Tifa look in DoA5U. Also she was somewhat of a personal rival as I struggled facing her, so I thought "hey, if you can't beat them...".

I started DOA5+ playing Helena and Christie as they are OP sexy. xD.
Then i tried Kokoro, and i liked the blend of a shy girl with the rage wolf game style.

Look at this , which best represents her rage temper

I like her playstyle, that's the gamestyle i want to play. All in agressivity, no defense at all (or fewer than others).
Her Gameplay is strong, she has no kameha as a showoff, she wants to get the job done quickly. In short she executes.

Like Bushido said in is tutorial "Kokoro can be too sexy at times". Spent too much time looking her in her demon outfit watching this wiping little pearl of sweat, or in her rape swimsuit.

The rape swimsuit best represents a match with Kokoro. Losing the first rounds then coming back in the match with so much rage and winning at the end : A must see.

And last word : her Taunts. I love them. I used to use the "laught taunt" a lot. For me i considered it like when hitomi is saying " hey look i won, unbelievable". But now I never use it again since it can be considered very offensive ( happen to me in real match with an opponent i played against.) But i really like to chuckle like a brainless blond girl.

The "I"m sorry" taunt: The best use is when you are obviously losing the game against a master. you do it when you still have a slice of life : funny.

"It's not over yet taunt": obvious use is in her rape swimsuit ;)

Been reppin Kokoro ever since DoA: D. What made me try her out was reading a comment praising how good she was when I thought she was one of the worst at the time. Now I main her because

1) Her mixup game, deep stuns, gracefulness, and simplicity.

2) HER OUTFITS (COSTUME 7 IN 5U THO <3)

3) She's friggin adorable.

For me, it was her fighting style and moves. Even before I tried any characters out, something about her look stood out to me. She seemed classy, lol. So I went into command training with her first out of everyone and was pretty much set after I finished it.

I've mained Akira in VF ever since I started playing that game bout 5 years ago. Didn't have any idea that they used the same fighting style, hahah. I thought some of her moves looked a lil familiar. So I guess sub-consciously that's why I liked her move set right out the gate and said "Yup, this is who I'm gonna learn". So you can imagine my surprise when their story mode part came up, and the first time I played a tag team match and used those two.

And just to throw out there. I like using her English voice cause she just sounds more bad ass and powerful when she's doing her moves.

I like her fighting style, outfits and taunts. Also to quote a friend of mine "She can be too sexy at times." :D

Nah but the more serious answer is that I like how balanced her offense is. She's got somethin to open you up, something to come in fast and somethin to whiff punish you with. Best troll technique ever: 236T > laugh taunt.

EDIT: Lmao I didn't realize someone else quoted Bushi.

Even I am the worst Kokoro Player I still love her.

Why I pick up Kokoro ?

1. She is beautiful no doubt. ( especially her new design compared to doa4 )
2. You can troll opponents
3. She has cool moves and I like grabs. She fits to my playstlye.
4. She is a loose woman not so serious like other characters.
5. She is someone , who I have fun to play with her. Even randoms enjoy it when I fool around xD .
6. She fits to my Tag Team for Akira


That is my way with Kokoro.This path will be harsh for me and Koko but I think I will make it :)

Dropping her is no option

@Nameless Sama I doubt you're the worst Kokoro player! If you love a character for everything she has and ESPECIALLY if you're dedicated to getting better than her, that automatically puts you above every person who plays Kokoro / DoA for jiggly, OMG-mode boobs :)

(Which isn't a problem since she's SEXY as hell ;) )
