Fulgore is an advanced fighting cyborg made by the Ultratech company that debuted in the original Killer Instinct and has made a playable appearance in every game in the series. He is the rival of Jago.

Appearance

Fulgore's appearance in Killer Instinct 1 seems to be based off of an old English knight. His head and face resemble that of a knight's helmet and mask, his red eyes slanted into a death glare and no nose or mouth, though he seems to be able to make grunts and noises. He seems to take pleasure in the destruction of the enemies and regularly engages in hand to hand combat. One of the most dominant "knight" appearances is the feather-like extension protruding from the back of his head, as seen with most knight's helmets with feathers. The rest of his body is humanoid, having random circuitry and eletrical tubing coming out of his neck and torso that powers his massive strength and intelligence.

Fulgore receives a slight design overhaul in Killer Instinct 2/Gold, retaining a mostly similar physical design, though he's slightly sleeker, his armor appearing much sharper and polished, with streaks of metallic blue lining his arms, torso and legs. His metallic blades are now composed of energy. This is to show this Fulgore is a new, improved model over the original.

Fulgore again receives a strong overhaul to his design, save for his head and face which aside from being sleeker and more menacing, appears virtually identical to past versions. He body appears more mechanical than the previous incarnations. Joints, gears, circuitry, wires, and tubes are exposed along his entire body and back of his limbs and the interior of his chest plate reveals a Mark 3 stamp inside of him. When his chest plates open, his nuclear reactor core is revealed. His plasma blades are much longer and sleeker in design.

Killer Instinct

Story

A prototype cybernetic soldier developed by Ultratech, Fulgore was entered into the Killer Instinct tournament as a final test of its combat capabilities. Once its abilities are proven, mass production will begin.

Extended Story
One of Ultratech's latest creations and possibly the most dangerous to date, Fulgore is the first in a planned series of cybersoldiers boasting state-of-the-art armouries, worked at feverishly over the last few years by a particularly erratic Ultratech genius and his team of Asian engineers. Dark rumours abound as to where the prototype's human parts originated - the kind of rumours nobody dares voice. The rumors say the human parts originated from a human organ harvesting operation based in Moscow. Before the Fulgore Mk.I model is even finished, the scientists are already working on an upgrade: and to prove the prototype's ultimate worth, it is entered into the tournament with orders to destroy all opposition.

Ending

The combat test of the Fulgore series assault cyborg has been a success. Mass production can now take place. After years of research, a weapon of awesome power is in the hands of Ultratech. The dawn of a robot controlled empire will soon begin. The first prototype model, Fulgore 1, is deactivated and placed in a museum. The only humans left to view it are now slaves.

Killer Instinct 2

Story

The advanced and deadlier successor to the original Fulgore cyborg destroyed by Jago. Activated after the time jump, its final Ultratech commands are executed... find Jago and kill him.

Extended Story

Even before the Mk. I prototype in the vastly expensive Fulgore project was completed, the scientists at Ultratech were working frenziedly on an updated version. When the original met its match at the hands of Jago, its creator was enraged and set about beating a single directive into the Mk. II’s circuitry, turning it into a single-minded predator and an even more deadly foe than its predecessor. Unfortunately for Jago, not even the timejump has the power to stop it now.

Fulgore Artwork Revealed

Fulgore in KI3

Story: Protocols reactivated. Enhanced system bootstrap complete. A new Fulgore prototype is online, with a singular directive: ELIMINATE ENEMIES TO ULTRATECH. However, the mind of the machine is different. It plans. It feels. It is aware. It is somehow... human.

Stage: UltraTech Industries (Similarity of both Industrial Warehouse (KI) and Museum (KI2))

During an Ultra Combo, a retort in the background will explode, making an orb-like shield and becomes magnetic causing some metallic items to float and to be sucked into the magnetic fiery retort, which causes it to become distorted.

Ultra Combo Hits: 23 Hits

Reactor Gauge: (Season 2) Replacing the Shadow Meter, Fulgore has a 10 piece meter as his super gauge. Fulgore will gain a piece of meter over time as his reactor fills a small meter above his reactor gauge. When this meter is full, a tic of meter is earned. The meter speeds up whenever he is attacking the opponent but slows down when he is not attacking or is using some of his energy based special attacks. A tic of meter can be spent to cancel a special move with another special move. Four tics are spent when performing a Shadow Move or a Shadow Counter. When the reactor meter has four green tics, his forward movement is improved, when he gains four yellow tics, his backwards movement is improved and when his meter is full, Fulgore's dashes are improved.

Instinct Mode - Devastation Beam: (Season 2) Fulgore activates his instinct, causing his Reactor Gauge to gain tics at full speed. After the Reactor Meter is full, Fulgore can fire a massive laser beam from his chest which can cause upwards of 40% damage.

Combo Trait - Auto-Triples: Fulgore can perform three hits for his auto-double by holding down the button he uses for that double. If the third hit connects without being broken, Fulgore gains a tic of meter for his Reactor Guage. This cannot be done with manuals.

Endings:

Spare Orchid, ULTRA Fulgore:

SYSTEM MALFUNCTION. KILLING BLOW ABORTED. How can a machine know mercy? Fulgore cannot ignore his imperative to destroy but human "memories" interfere with his machine logic. Unable to digest the echoes of a fighting spirit, Fulgore attempts to process his true nature.

Spare Fulgore, ULTRA Orchid:

PROTOTYPE. APPROVED. Echoes of a lost humanity have been purged from Fulgore's systems. The sum of what remains is a merciless machine, driven to destroy. Without a cycle spared to savor his victories, Fulgore begins a search for his next adversary.

ULTRA Both Orchid and Fulgore:

Thousands of Fulgores have been created, only to be destroyed, remade, and improved upon... But this one is different. Individuality and independence now race through his circuits. Still a killing machine, Fulgore rejects his coded imperatives and ponders his next target.

Trivia: When the player reaches to 16+ Combo Hits, his remixed classic theme, "Museum" will play. During the slow music due to characters not moving, his remixed classic theme, "Full-bore" will play.

Notes: Fulgore was the last character to be confirmed, and was revealed on the launch trailer (only the shadow figure with glowing eyes and hair). He was set to be available on March 2014; however it was delayed until April 2014.

  • Turrent Morph: Fulgore Changes his head into a turret-like gun and shoots the opponent repeatedly. (KI 1).

Notes

  • Although Fulgore is said to be a cyborg, it is presently unknown what organic parts may make up his body in order to qualify the appropriate use of the term.
    • The comics (as shown below) show Fulgore with a human head, which would justify the use of the term, but the comics do not seem to be canon.
  • There is a different version of Fulgore across all three games. The KI1 Fulgore was destroyed at the end of the game and the KI2013 Fulgore is stated to be a new prototype, which indicates that the KI2 Fulgore was also destroyed.
  • Its revealed that UltraTech used the brain of Eagle to create Fulgore, however it is very vague as to wether this means Eagle's brain patterns are copied into each Fulgore unit, or only the present third Fulgore actually carries his mind.
  • Fulgore's name maybe a shortened version of Belphegor (due to character size). Belphegor is demon of invention and seduces human beings to invent ingenious inventions in order to get rich ( and ultimately become lazy and greedy). This mirrors what Ultratech is trying to do with Fulgore, an invention to allow Ultratech to be powerful and rich and have enough finacial power to make unrest throught the world.
