Cheats & Guides

The King of Fighters 02/03 Cheats For PlayStation 2

  1. Hidden Team Ending

    If you play through arcade mode with the Mukai path (i.e. beating Kusanagi with a DM), you'll get an ending cut-scene if you used one of the ten pre-set teams. However, there is yet another ending if you select the "Sacred Three" team: Kyo, Iori, and Chizuru. Should look familiar to older fans of KoF. Beat Mukai, and kick back with the destined trio!

  2. Unlock the first 44 artwork images in the gallery

    Defeat 40 opponents in a row in Single Attack found in the Challenge section. Rugal should be your 40th opponent.

  3. Unlock Galleries for 2003

    Use any character (including the bosses) for S - Survival (One on one) to unlock the individual character portraits. For every individual you defeat in S - Survival, that individual's portrait is unlocked. Eventually, you will be forced to face Adel then Mukai separately. Defeat them to unlock their portraits and to further play S - Survival.

    Use any characters (including the bosses) for T - Survival (Arcade team play style) to unlock all the team endings in the gallery. For every team you defeat in T - Survival, that team's ending is unlocked. Eventually, starting with Kusanagi, you'll fight all the bosses available in Arcade Play. Defeat Mukai during these series of fights to unlock the 3 Divine Vessels' ending (Kyo, Iori, Chizuru).

    Note that the "regular" battles in both Survival games are random, meaning you don't have to unlock all in one playthrough. However, to unlock the bosses' portraits and the 3 Divine Vessels' ending, you MUST defeat a certain number of opponents.
