For those of you who don't know, she made her debut in Fatal Fury 3 before she made her way into KOF series. Upon entering the tournament of KOF '97 in a team with Billy Kane and Ryuji Yamazaki, she quickly became very popular to fans. Her Japanese fan base actually voted for "Blue" Mary Ryan through gaming magazines to be picked for her entry in The King of Fighters '97. Billy and Yamazaki were also picked with her and you can re-create the original team of these three once again in KOF XIV.

Blue Mary is one of the characters of the series with a very unique move-set as her fighting style is based on Sambo, a Soviet martial art form. Most of her attacks are grapple moves and that thing didn't change for till date according to the trailer. Back in the day, designers had a tough time to animate her moves but it was a fun experience in the end and everything worked out pretty fine. KOF XIV used a new graphic engine to render those moves in real-time 3D.
