Kyou Fujibayashi (藤林杏, Fujibayashi Kyō) is a bad-mouthed and aggressive girl who is a surprisingly good cook. The older of the Fujibayashi twins, her younger sister is Ryou, whom she is very protective of and doesn't like it when others pick on her. Kyou and Ryou can be distinguished through their eye color; Kyou has purple eyes while her sister's are blue. Kyou also has longer hair than her sister and Kyou's hairpiece is on the left, while Ryou wears it to the right. She was Tomoya's class representative in their second year, and has maintained a steady friendship with Tomoya even though they are put in different classes on their third year. She is the class representative of class 3-E in Clannad. She has a pet baby boar named Botan. She owns a motorcycle, which is known only to Tomoya, Nagisa, and her sister. She throws various types of books towards anyone she gets furious with, especially Yōhei Sunohara. Her strength is great, with Tomoya once comparing it to Tomoyo's kicks. Her books are thrown with enough force to crack concrete in the anime.
Kyou's theme is That's Like the Wind.
Kyou is very protective of her younger sister, Ryou, throughout the entire series, and we first see her when she shoots a book at Tomoya thinking that he was bullying Ryou. She knows of her little sister's crush on Tomoya since junior year, so she tries her best to get them together and seperate Tomoya from any sort of romantic interest (like Kotomi and Nagisa), even though she is their friend and means them no harm. She helps Kotomi during her arc and supports her and Nagisa. However, while working so that Ryou and Tomoya become a couple, Kyou falls in love with Tomoya. This is proven in season one when Kyou sees Tomoya and Nagisa together. After Nagisa had been hit by a foul tennis ball, Tomoya helped her to the nurse's office. She looked at Ryou and tried to tell her that she was sorry and that she couldn't get Tomoya to fall in love with her, but Ryou stopped her and said, "Onee-chan...I'm so sorry..." Kyou then looked at her in shock and said, "Wh-What are you t-ta--" Kyou then stopped as she noticed tears welling up in her eyes. She tried to hold back the tears but she just started sobbing. The two sisters hugged and cried as they finally came to grips with reality that Tomoya is already in love with Nagisa.
Kyou becomes a member of the Drama Club, although she only signs up so the minimum number of members will be reached. She is athletic and doesn't get on too well with Tomoyo, whom she sees as a great threat. Kyou also notices that she is strangely popular amongst underclassmen.
Kyou appears as a secondary character during most of Clannad ~After Story~. She plays in the baseball match at the beginning of the season, and attends Nagisa's mock graduation ceremony later on. She is also seen visiting Nagisa during her pregnancy. Later in ~After Story~, Kyou works as a kindergarten teacher, and coincidentally is also Ushio's teacher. According to Tomoya, her personality is still the same, even after the reunion, but Ushio says that Kyou is a good teacher. She misses Nagisa and is often reminded of her each time she sees Ushio.
