Cutie Mark Crusaders KOF94 by mayorlight Cutie Mark Crusaders KOF94 by mayorlight
Twenty years ago, The King of Fighters '94 was one of my favorites at the arcades. I played it every chance I got - and I always picked Team England (Mai Shiranui, Yuri Sakazaki, and King).

For quite sometime, I've been wanting to draw the Cutie Mark Crusaders, as well as something to mark the 20th anniversary of KOF. So I decided to draw the CMC as my favorite KOF gals.

-Considering that Apple Bloom already has a bow in her hair, I made her Mai Shiranui.
-Sweetie Belle being the most "girly" of the three, I made her Yuri Sakazaki.
-Which left Scootaloo as King - befitting for a tomboy.

As luck would have it, their costume colors ended up going rather well with their Equestria Girls-style "coat/skin" coloring.

(that's just grape juice Scootaloo has in her glass btw)

Working Music: King of Fighters '94 OST (mostly the England and Italy stage tracks).

I was 4 years old when the King of Fighters first came out. And I think that's pretty cool to do a cosplay of this.

I thought this team was the "Punch Princesses".  "Team England" makes no sense considering two of them are Japanese and the last is French.

Yes, now I remember seeing them referred to as "The Princesses of Punch" in an issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly back in the day.

Some magazines referred to the teams by the country's flag/stage. Indeed, it hardly made much sense either to call the Art of Fighting team "Team Mexico" or the Fatal Fury team "Team Italy."

YEAH! This is great. Sad lack of KoF/MLP crossovers. Awesome job!

Had to comment again because yeah, I love King of Fighters and you did an amazing job. And yeah, they're recognizable throughout the years.

To be fair, I had someone do the CMC as the Hero Team from KOF 2003.

Applebloom = Ash
Sweetie Belle = Duo Lon
Scootaloo = Shen Woo

Thanks. Indeed, the original All-Female Team will forever remain iconic. :)

I think I saw that pic of them as the 2003 team on Derpibooru.

Yeah. Kathy Hauser did that picture and I commissioned her. I also had one idea with Twilight, Dashie and Celestia as Kyo, Iori and Chizuru. Notice anything...

I'd say switch Dash to Trixie, and that would be a great Three Treasures Team.  (I picked Trixie due to Iori being Kyo's rival.)

Funny you should mention Celestia as Chizuru - I had the same notion. I'm debating whether Discord or Sombra should be Rugal.

A great track indeed. Although the original '94 track "Ne!" will always have a special place in my heart. :)
