...Vice is a woman whose entire character model is designed around two words. Cruel Woman.
Her name means anything which is considered immoral.
And that's pretty much what she's all about. Her main objective is to resurrect the deomn god Orochi so he can control the world.
She first appeared in the game King of Figther 95. She entered the tournament with team Yagami and has mostly been in that team, each time she's entered the tournament. Whether or not she is on the Yagami team, she is always paired with "friend", Mature.
Vice is a Hakkeshu, which is the KOF Universe word for the followers of Orochi
Before she even joined the competition, she was the one who brainwashed Kyo Kusanagi's father, Saisyu, which caused him to go on a Blood hungry rage and attempt to kill his son.
The only reason she entered the King of Fighters tournament, was to recruit fighters and spectators for Orochi servitude.
She has been known to work with several other Orochi members: including Rugal Bernstein, Goenitz, Shermie, Chris, and Yashiro Nanakase.
Vice and the other Hakkeshu. Mature, Yashiro, Chris, Shermie, and Goenitz
When Rugal Bernstein died in KOF 95, Vice's superior Goenitz, ordered Vice and Mature to keep an eye on Iori Yagami. Iori realizing that they were spied, killed them. In subsequent titles, Vice and Mature haunt Iori until KOF 98 and 2002, where they manifest into the physical world as shadow spirits.
Vice is set to appear in the latest installment, King of Fighters XIII
Vice is in KOF XIII next to her companion Mature, they join together to retrieve the amulet Iori had stolen in the tournament last year for Ash. During Iori's team ending, they discover that Ash was actually trying to collect the three sacred treasures not for evil but to prevent the Orochi power into the hands of the land diatante. After defeating Ash, Iori, Mature, and Vice consulted on whether they would recover their purple flames, but on condition that the disturbance of the Orochi blood flowing through their veins would also be reinstated in his body. Iori, Mature, and Vice accepts that and disappear, saying that surely will meet again on a moonlit night. This shows that actually Mature and Vice were never alive, but that having broken the seal that imprisoned Orochi, they could re-enter into the realm of mortals like shadows, appearing in the dreams of Iori and taking the form of strong shadows to have a human appearance.
While there are many examples of evil/psychotic characters in the King of Fighters Universe, Vice someone stands out as one of the more crazy and bloody thirsry of almost all the fighters. To specific, she is very violent, even among a tournament of fighters, and takes delight and pleasure of hurting and killing people. She goes crazy during a fight, and will only calm down after the final bloodshed. Her personality is a dichotomy though, she effortlessly switches from psychopath killer, to classy secretary, to somewhat flirtatious women and back again.
She's also a comic book fanatic
Vice has no friends, nor does she have any real loved ones. Though Vice and Mature help each other all the time, they aren't really friends. As far as anyone knows, they are only working together so they can serve Orochi. However, Vice has been known to show at least a small amount of concern for Mature and even Iori. She even put Mature and Iori's lives before those of Orochi, so maybe deep down she does love them.
As mentioned above, Vice doesn't like anyone, as a matter of fact she actually hates most people. But one person she hates more than most is Saisyu Kusanagi. Their mutual hatred stems from the fact that, Vice brainwashed him into attacking his song Kyo. As a matter of a fact, when Vice meets Saisyu on the fighting grounds pits on the floor to see him and exclaims, "Anta mitetto kundago tatto hara." (I hate the mere sight of your face).
Notably one of the more physical females in the series, having virutally no projectiles throughout the series. She is the one of the only female Grapplers in the series. And as a reult requires more techincal play than others. Her attacks are also extremely violent. Her super move in KOF 98 causes a geyser a blood to explode from her opponents body.
Slashing Hands - Her hands can slash and pierce as if they were knives (As seen in KOF'96).
Multiple Attacks - Vice can kick several times in high speed.
Cutting Attacks - Vice can make her kicks be enveloped in a cutting aura. She combines this and the Multiple Attacks power.
Snake Arms - Vice can stretch her arms in front of her within a long range and with high speed.
Negative Energy - Vice can slam a foe out of pure hatred, producing a pillar of dim light with a large skull inside, this attribute sometimes manifests itself in a burst of deep crimson as well.
Hooked Nails - Vice has purple, hooked, acrylic nails, most likely used to grab her opponent.
Ignore Weight - Vice can grab and slam anyone bigger than her like Goro Daimon, Maxima, Mr. Big, Chang Koehan, or Raiden.
Outrage - Vice performs a series of kicks, her feet turning into blades that have a reasonably large hitbox and decent recovery on block
Ravenous - Vice performs a series of blade kicks in the air
Overkill - Vice laughs and grabs her foe’s head and slams them to the
ground. She then disappears. A serpent appears in the over her foe and then
Vice reappears where the serpent is. She comes down, knee first, into them.
In the King Of Fighters movie, Vice is portrayed by Bernice Liu. In the film Vice is brainwashed by Rugal Bernstein and is not only the partner, but the girlfriend of Mature. Vice and Mature become Rugal's servants.
Vice and Mature are summoned to the fight universe, where they are attacked by Rugal Bernstein. He defeats both of them easily, and then passionately kisses them to make them his slaves.
Under Rugal's control, Vice is ordered to tell all of the fighters to disregard the danger they heard about the fighting universe and that it was safe to come back.
Once the fighters return to the fighting universe, Vice and Mature are made to attack the fighters, and attempt to kill them. And is defeated and presumbaly killed by Mai Shiranui on the staircase scene,
As with most characters in this movie, Vice was just loosely based on the game while most of her character was changed for the movie. The lesbian relationship with Mature is the most glaring example. Also is her position as a regular KOF fighter and not a servant of Orochi. In the film, Vice is a friend of Chizuru and the rest of the KOF fighters. Also her design is completely different going with an almost leather Goth look, instead of her usual dress.
In the KOF universe, her ethnicity is unknown but in the movie she is played by Asian-American actress Bernice Liu.

Vs. Vice Win Quotes
King of Fighters XIII, The
Your power and fighting spirit are formidable, but you're too slow.
Who would’ve thought the famous Hakkensho would be such push-over?
The world will never be rid of Evil. And that’s why I keep fighting!
There's nothing worse than losing without learning your lesson.
Break my bones!? Looks like YOU'RE the one with the broken leg there! Hyahahaha!
Stand in my way and I'll kill you. I have told you this before!
I don't like big women. Get out of here before I burn you to a crisp.
It may sound trite, but I believe in it! Yes! Justice shall prevail!
That woman just now was scary! I have no idea what she was saying.
I don’t know what my dad did to you, but don’t try to take it out on me!
I'm not so weak as to be torn apart by a vulgar woman like you!
You rely solely on force and momentum. You aren't even in the same league as I am.
Even if you'd brought the Four Kings, you wouldn't have been able to stop me!
"Now, return to nothing?" Very well! I'll return you, Orochi, and human history to nothing all at once!
You fight like crazy! You’re more of a man than most guys I know!
You fight only to kill. You'll never beat a true martial artist like that!
Foul-mouthed as always. Who knows? You might get along with Yamazaki, though
