* AmbiguousGender: Originally it was believed she was a {{Transsexual}} for many years following her debut in ''Final Fight'' and this topic was (and still is) hotly debated among fans (there's even a ''documentary'' about [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Lj-9npanOI&feature=colike Poison's gender]]). But in recent years, Street Fighter director [[WordOfGod Yoshinori Ono]] has stated that she has no canon gender anymore, and that it is up to individual fans to decide what they wish to view Poison as. Though Capcom has made some jokes about it such as a few character quotes in ''Street Fighter X Tekken'' (the first game where she was playable) noticing how "manly" she seems for a woman. For what it's worth her original ''Final Fight'' concept art calls her a "newhalf"[[note]]an offensive Japanese term for a hermaphrodite with a female body and male genitals[[/note]] and whatever she is physically she clearly considers herself female.

* BrokenAce: Yes, the girl needs to be locked in a rubber room and pumped with enough drugs to tranquilize a tiger ''and'' went through lots of horrifying shit through years, but given that she managed to defeat Chun-Li, Guile, ''and'' Cammy in straight-up fights during her OVA, she's undeniably skilled. Some characters even take notice of her inner sadness.

* CastingAShadow: Her KiAttacks are a dark purple and in V it's now a smoky grey..

skilled. Some characters even take notice of her inner sadness.
-->'''Menat:''' So, don't take this the wrong way, okay? But it seems to me that you're actually very lonely.
-->'''Zeku:''' Suffering is pain. In pain, you will not find joy. Your sadness, profound.
-->'''Blanka:''' You're like an injured animal. I feel bad for you.
* CastingAShadow: Her KiAttacks are a dark purple and in V it's now a smoky grey.. grey.



* TragicVillain: See UsedToBeASweetKid. Several characters winquotes against her make note that behind her sadistic, sociopathic personality is a lonely girl with some serious emotional pain.

** If her win quote against Blanka in ''V'' is to be believed, she's normally against cruelty to animals, but is willing to make an exception with Blanka.

* GameplayAndStoryIntegration: Viper has lousy normals, but great specials and mix-ups. This makes perfect sense when you consider that she's not a trained martial artist, but a fit woman who just happens to have a powered suit.

Added DiffLines:

* MovesetClone: Because of his obsession with kung-fu movies, he trained fervently in Chinese martial arts so much so that many of his normal moves and special attacks are similar to those used by Chun-Li, Gen, Yun, and Yang if somewhat tweaked to accommodate his larger size and lack of high-class training (while Gen only needs to use one finger for his Hyakurenko, Rufus needs to use both his hands to perform the comparable Snake Strike). However, his Galactic Tornado and its various offshoots are techniques unique to himself.

* DeadAllAlong: [[spoiler:In the Japanese dialogue in ''SSFIV'', it's heavily implied that Gouken did die shortly after Akuma attacked him, and that his appearance in the game is actually his spirit. Traces of this were removed from the translations however. ''StreetFighterV'' makes it clear that he is very much alive.]]

* AffirmativeActionGirl: Part of the reason she was created was to fill two voids: a proper female villain and a Korean character. In her villainous role's case, while Cammy was a villain during the ''StreetFighterAlpha'' days, it was because she was [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashed]] into being Bison's assassins Killer Bee, while Juri is straight-up [[PrecisionFStrike FUCKING]]. [[PunctuatedForEmphasis EVIL]]. In her ethnicity's case, she is Capcom's first Korean character ''ever''.

* DanceBattler: Many of her moves in StreetFighterV make it look like she's breakdancing or doing ballet.

* PhysicalGod: Easily among the top five most powerful characters in the StreetFighter universe, considering normal Akuma ''pales in comparison'' to him.

* HiddenDepths: Seems to have accompanied her growing an actual personality when she migrated to the StreetFighter series. Aside from having an unrequited crush on Cody, She has become a successful professional wrestler, and if her ending is anything to go by, has impressive latent musical talents and enough charisma to lead a very popular band.

* ArtisticLicenseMartialArts: She uses the Flamingo Stance as her default pose. Most Tae Kwon Do schools don't use it as part if their curriculum (and the default stance is usually the more BoringButPractical Front Stance, which looks more like an upright version of the Orthodox Stance in boxing).

It gets worse in ''V'', where she completely relaxes both her arms. Not as bad as Bison's BadassArmfold, but certainly not in any kind of good defensive position.

Added DiffLines:

** However, Juri's win quote against Makoto suggests she intends to kill the latter. Could be justified by the [[GroinAttack brutal nature]] of Makoto's fighting style, though.
