[[WMG:Janne D'Arc]]

%%* ActionGirl
* AllAmazonsWantHercules: Janne's main goal and dream is to get married and settle down, but she will NEVER set for a man who isn't as physically strong as she is. She seems to quite... admire J. Carn if his ending is to be believed, and is annoyed to find Ryoko fawning over Hanzou in ''Perfect''. However, she flatly (and violently) turns Fuuma down when he hits on her.
* AnimalMotifs: The phoenix/firebird. Her Aura Bird projectile takes the form of a fiery avian, and her Firebird special/super move sees her charge at the opponent engulfed in a bird-shaped aura.
* BoobsofSteel: Has an hourglass figure and effortlessly handles a huge broadsword.
* CircusBrat: In this game she was raised in a circus and acts as its guardian.
* CoolBigSis: Acts like this towards Ryoko.

* WhipSword: Preceding [[SoulSeries Ivy's]] by six years.
** ShapeshifterWeapon: Her sword can even transform into a bow and arrow.

[[WMG:Kim Dragon]]

* AnimalMotifs: As his name suggests, the dragon. His Dragon Kick has him delivering a Bruce Lee-esque flying kick while surrounded by an aura that resembles a dragon's head.
* BruceLeeClone: One of if not ''the'' first in fighting games, predating [[MortalKombat Liu Kang]], [[Franchise/StreetFighter Fei Long]] and the Laws from {{Tekken}}.
%%* FunnyBruceLeeNoises
%%* {{Kiai}}
* NoKoreansInJapan: Averted. In the first game he was said to be Chinese, but in the second he was retconned to be South Korean.
%%* WalkingShirtlessScene

[[WMG:Muscle Power]]

* AllAmericanFace: We are talking MostTriumphantExample territory here, [[HulkHogan brother.]] Mostly evident in his ''Perfect'' ending: "America! A great body from that great land!"
* AtrociousAlias: "Muscle Power" is up there with Fight Fever's "Magic Dunker."
* BadassBeard: In the first game; he shaved his moustache because it was unpopular with kids.
%%* BicepPolishingGesture
* CatchPhrase: "NUMBER ONE!" Also, at least 90% of his dialogue revolves around muscles and exercise.
%%* {{Eagleland}}: Type 1.
* FriendToAllChildren: His profile states that he has a soft spot for children.
* LightningBruiser: His walking speed is slow, but his lariat and drop kick attacks give him decent mobility, and god help you if he ever lands a grab on you. His only problem is that he lacks a command move that can destroy projectiles, and so is forced to navigate around these instead.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: He ''is'' Hulk Hogan, complete with Axe Bomber lariat, Leg Drop, big boot kick, "listen-for-applause" taunt and shirt-tearing/arm-flexing intro poses. This is probably the ''real'' reason his moustache was nixed after the first game.
%%* ProWrestlingIsReal
%%* UnderwearOfPower
* WalkingShirtlessScene: His standing block animation has him sticking his chest out to [[NoSell absorb everything from sword slashes to killer sharks.]]
* WearingAFlagOnYourHead: Or rather wearing a flag as your wrist-bands, elbow-bands, boots [[BreadEggsMilkSquick and speedo]]


* ActionBomb: One of his specials involves blowing his ENTIRE UPPER BODY UP. Like [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Stroheim]], that does not keep him down for long.
* BlondGuysAreEvil: Mostly subverted after the first game, what with his comic relief-laden endings.
%%* {{Cyborg}}
* {{Expy}}: Of Brocken Jr. from ''{{Kinnikuman}}'' and Stroheim from [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure]]. His ending in ''Perfect'' even has him boasting loudly about German technology ("Best in the world! Number one on the planet! Jahahahahaha!")
%%* NiceHat
%%* ThoseWackyNazis

[[WMG:Julius Carn]]

%%* BeardOfEvil
%%* BloodKnight

%%* BadassPreacher
* FireIceLightning: His Fire Ball is a standard projectile that can be fired from the air as well as the ground, his Thunder Ball is slow but damaging and his Ice Ball freezes the opponent on hit.
* GiantHandsOfDoom: Uses his magic to make his hands (and sometimes his feet) bigger for more power.
%%* LoveFreak: Oh, so much.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: A truly and hilariously frightening take on the "Mad Monk" Rasputin.

%%* CuteBruiser
* FlexingThoseNonBiceps: One of her win poses from ''Jet'' onwards features this.
%%* GenkiGirl
%%* HeroWorshipper: She is this to Janne and Hanzou.
* HonorBeforeReason: Her Kubikiri Nage (Decapitation Throw) is a running grab... preceded by Ryoko bowing to her opponent and thus significantly increasing the move's start-up time.
* KiAttack: The Bosatsusho, a sphere of energy that is just as fearsome as her throws.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: She's an {{expy}} of real life judoka [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ryoko_Tani Ryouko Tani]].
%%* PluckyGirl
* SayItWithHearts: Nearly ubiquitous in her dialogue in the Japanese versions.

[[WMG:Captain Kidd]]

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He is certainly no gentleman but he has a good heart.
* MakingASplash: Has two projectiles that have water take form in a GhostShip and a [[EverythingsEvenWorseWithSharks shark]]
%%* NiceHat

%%* {{Pirate}}
%%* WalkingShirtlessScene

[[WMG:Johnny Maximum]]

* EmbarrassingFirstName: His son's name is... '''Cock'''.
* TheFaceless: His face is never seen under his helmet.

%%* LightningBruiser

%%* RedEyesTakeWarning

* MagicalNativeAmerican: Subverted: he looks and fights like one, but is actually from [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Papua_New_Guinea Papua New Guinea]]... in Oceania.
* ReligiousBruiser: Battles on the orders of the Earth spirit Fafa(r).
* SummonMagic: Non-RPG example where he summons spirits to attack
* VerbalTic: In the Japanese version, he ends most of his sentences with "-samasu."
%%* WalkingShirtlessScene

[[WMG:Shura Nai Khanomtom]]

* ButtMonkey: His family treats him like a nuisance, and several characters' ''Perfect'' win quotes (including his [[HypocriticalHumor own mirror match quote]]!) touch on his perceived status as dull and unpopular.
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: Deeming his Kuuchuu Nidan Mawashi Geri (Twirl Kick) from ''WH2'' too lethal to use, he sealed it away for ''Jet''. It made its return as the finisher of his MAX Crazy Death Blow in ''Perfect''. The joke here is that it was neither particularly effective nor very spectacular.
* HeroWorshipper: To his older brother, as well as Dragon (who reminds him of the former).
* IWillFindYou: His older brother disappeared and may have been killed, so he sets out to find him. [[spoiler: Subverted: said brother was looking for ''him'' instead and dragged Shura back home while scolding him for going off and worrying their family.]]
%%* WalkingShirtlessScene


%%* AnAxeToGrind
* AnIcePerson: Can freeze opponents solid with bis Blizzard Breath, or summon a whale to swallow them and blow them out of its air hole.
%%* BigFun
* HornyVikings: Silly as they may look, those horns are used to good effect in his Long Horn tackle and Hurricane Drop command throw. How would ''you'' like 400 pounds of Viking landing horns-first on your belly?
%%* MakingASplash
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Somewhere between Eric the Red and Leif Erickson.
* ShockAndAwe: In the form of a giant [[DropTheHammer mallet]]
* StoutStrength: Big arms, bigger belly.

%%* SNKBoss

!'''World Heroes 2 Jet'''


%%* AxCrazy
* BloodKnight: In quite a literal sense: he desires to drink the blood of the world's strongest, and often refers to this in his quotes. His idle animation in ''Perfect'' even has him spraying excess blood from his mouth!
%%* EvilRedhead
* FlungClothing: Shreds his black cloak and top hat in his intro.
* UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper: Half this, half Spring-Heeled Jack.
* TheQuincyPunk: Part of his motif: mohawk hairstyle, heart-shaped tattoo, a penchant for sticking out his tongue farther than the norm....

%%* WolverineClaws


%%* BladeOnAStick
%%* BloodKnight
* BreathWeapon: He can take a big swig of alcohol from a bottle he keeps... and then immediately [[PlayingWithFire breathe fire]] at the opponent.
