Characters from Capcom's Final Fight
series. This page deals only with the characters as they appear in the Final Fight
canon. For notes on their appearances in the Street Fighter
series, please visit the Street Fighter
Cody Travers is a born street fighter who became known as the "Hero of Metro City" after rescuing his childhood sweetheart Jessica from the Mad Gear gang in Final Fight with his friend Guy and Jessica's father Mike Haggar. However, after breaking up with Jessica following his arrest, Cody became very apathetic, seeing his imprisonment as a punishment for his good deeds (even though he's gotten so strong that he can escape at any time he wants
An ex pro wrestler turned mayor of Metro City, Mike Haggar is the only hero from the first game to appear in all of the sequels. When the Mad Gear gang kidnaps his daughter Jessica and demands that he let them run free, Haggar refuses and enlists the help of Cody and Guy to stop them. In Final Fight 2, he fights Mad Gear once again to rescue Guy's master and fiancée. In Final Fight 3, he faces the Skull Cross gang who invades Metro City. By Final Fight: Streetwise, he is no longer the mayor of the city and is now a dock worker and a wrestling trainer.
- Assist Character: To Kyle in the story mode of Streetwise.
- Authority Equals Asskicking: You think he will bow down like a whimpering dog as 1) his daughter is held hostage, 2) his friend's fiancé and master are held hostage, or 3) a massive gang war erupts in the middle of his city? Hoo boy, have you got another thing coming...
- Badass Mustache
- Badass Normal: He's a president, sure, but he doesn't need guards to do the fighting for him.
- Beware the Nice Ones
- Breakout Character: In the original game, the role of The Hero is played by Cody. But Haggar proved popular enough to take that role in following games, as well as representing Final Fight in Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds.
- The Commissioner Gordon
- Crossover: His appearances in Namco x Capcom, Saturday Night Slam Masters (which gave us a look at his actual wrestling career before he became a mayor, at least in the original Japanese continuity), and Marvel vs. Capcom 3. He can also be found in the UDON Street Fighter comics and in USA Network's Street Fighter cartoon.
- Curse Cut Short: "You son of a... What have you done to her?"
- Expy: Of "Sleepy" Estes.
- Genius Bruiser: He's a wrestler who can beat up a gang of thugs, but muscles don't win elections.
- Gentle Giant: Outside battle, the same arms of steel that allow him to literally snap villains in half give the warmest and kindest hugs.
- Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: Smokes a cigar in a win pose of Final Fight: Revenge.
- Improvised Weapon: Pipes and 2 x 4 are his signature weapons.
- Invulnerable Attack: His Spinning Lariat.
- Meteor Move: His Sky High Backdrop and Final Hammer in Final Fight 3.
- Mighty Glacier
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: Haggar resembles professional wrestler Jesse Ventura, especially since he later became governor, although some think Haggar's mustache and trim haircut makes him look like Freddie Mercury.
- Our Mayor Is Different: He takes a more direct approach in reducing the crime rate of his city than most mayors.
- President Badass: In his ending in MVC 3, fresh off the heels of beating Galactus, he uses that momentum to run for—and gets elected—President of the United States. The Haggar/Stark ticket is implied to be a landslide victory.
- Papa Wolf: Do not mess with his daughter. It will be a miracle if he let's you live...
- Rated M for Manly
- Red Baron: Is lovingly called "Mayor of Earth" in his MVC 3 ending.
- Retired Badass: In Streetwise, Haggar seems to have distanced himself from most of Metro City, saying that many of its citizens have forgotten him. He now runs a gym ("Mike's Mat and Muscle") and a dock ("Mike's Maritime Maintenance").
- Spin Attack: The Double Lariat.
- Spinning Piledriver
- Walking Shirtless Scene: Excluding Streetwise.
- Wrestler in All of Us: Haggar is a former pro wrestler, and also a playable character in Saturday Night Slam Masters. In the second Final Fight game, he upgrades his piledriver to a Spinning Piledriver, similar to Zangief's in Street Fighter II. According to the manual for the SNES version of Street Fighter II, Zangief copied his Spinning Clothesline (a.k.a. the Double Lariat) from Haggar and taught Haggar the Spinning Piledriver.
A Japanese American Ninjutsu master dressed in a red ninja outfit and Nike sneakers. Guy is the 39th successor of the Bushin style of Ninjutsu, a martial arts style dating back to Japan's feudal age. Guy traveled to America to improve his martial art skills and found himself in Metro City, where he befriended fellow fighters Cody and Haggar and assisted the two in their battle against the Mad Gear gang in the original Final Fight to save Jessica (Cody's girlfriend and Haggar's daughter). Guy then helps Haggar and the others fight the Skull Cross gang in Final Fight 3. In Streetwise Guy became a crime boss after committing a serious crime that Cody was blamed for.
- Assist Character: To Kyle in the story mode of Streetwise.
- But Not Too Foreign: His nationality was listed as Japanese in Final Fight, but was changed to American since the Street Fighter Alpha series (implying that he became a naturalized citizen at some point).
- Cloudcuckoolander: The Alpha version of Guy in the Game Boy Advance version (Final Fight One), who acts as if he was a time-traveler from the future literally reliving the past.
- Crossover: So far, he's the Final Fight character with the most appearances outside of his main series: Street Fighter Alpha (all three games), Super Street Fighter IV, Namco x Capcom, and Capcom Fighting Jam/Evolution.
- Delinquent: Believe it or not, he was one before being taken in as Zeku's pupil. As you can see, the training caused Guy to mellow out considerably.
- Dope Slap: Or a Dope Auto Combo if you will, to Cody at the end of the first game, because Cody was ignoring Jessica calling out to him even though they just rescued her.
- Epic Flail: Nunchaku, his signature weapon in Final Fight 3.
- Fragile Speedster: He is the fastest of the original three characters.
- Highly-Visible Ninja
- Hurricane Kick: His Bushin Senpūkyaku which was carried over to Street Fighter Alpha
- Katanas Are Just Better: His signature weapon in the original Final Fight.
- Ki Attacks: But only in Final Fight 3.
- Meaningful Name: His real name in Japanese is actually Gai (spelled with the kanji 凱, which means "victorious", but more often rendered in kana as ガイ), but its romanized "Guy" to avoid the obvious mispronunciation.
- It could also count as a reference to Guy Picciotto of Fugazi, like other characters in the original game who are named after or are references to musicians. Both have bangs long enough to cover their eyes.
- Nice Shoes: As mentioned below, his Nike sneakers, to Memetic Mutation levels.
- Older and Wiser: Granted, he was pretty wise to begin with, but Streetwise sees him training the next generation of Bushin genin.
- Perpetual Frowner
- Product Placement: In the original, Guy wore jika-tabi. From Street Fighter Alpha and Final Fight 3 onwards, he instead wore some Nikes. But hey, real ninjas wear Nikes.
- The Stoic
- Tall, Dark and Handsome
- Wall Jumper
- Warrior Poet
Introduced in Final Fight 2, Maki Genryusai is the younger sister of Guy's fiancee Rena and is also trained in the art of the Bushin style. She was once the leader of a biker gang during her high school years. After her sister and father are kidnapped by a revived Mad Gear, Maki enlists the help of Haggar and Carlos to rescue them.
Introduced in Final Fight 2, Carlos Miyamoto is a South American swordsman and martial artist who traveled to Metro City and lived as a boarder with the Haggars. He aids Haggar and Maki in their battle against the Mad Gear gang after they had kidnapped Maki's father and sister.
Introduced in Final Fight 3

after the collapse of the New Mad Gear gang.
Introduced in Final Fight 3, Dean is a lone street fighter who assists Guy, Lucia and Haggar in their fight against the Skull Cross gang after they murdered his family when he refused their offer to join them.
Kyle Travers is the main character of Final Fight: Streetwise and brother to Cody from the first Final Fight. He fights as an underground pit fighter in Metro City with Cody as his trainer. When Cody is kidnapped, Kyle goes on a one-man search party to find him and those that abducted him.
Mad Gear Gang (Final Fight)
Bred, Dug, Jake and Simons
of Final Fight
thugs, Bred and his head swaps
Dug, Jake and Simmons are the low-ranking members of the Mad Gear gang. The only thing that's really notable about Bred (other than his dumb name) is that his car gets trashed in a Bonus Stage
by the heroes. He would go on to make a cameo
in Super Street Fighter IV
where in yet another bonus stage, Cody and/or Guy wreck another one of his cars.
Telling them apart: Bred is caucasian and dresses in grey; Dug is brown-skinned, bald, wears shades and dresses in red; Jake is the bearded guy in blue; and Simons has shaved hair, wears shades and dresses in khaki.
- Affably Evil: Bred's official bio in the manual for the SFC version describes him as a "nice guy who always gets himself in trouble."
- Big "OMG!": When Bred's cars get totaled, changed to "Oh, My Car!" in the overseas versions of the SNES and GBA ports and Super Street Fighter IV.
- Expy: Iron in Mighty Final Fight, who is based on Bred.
- The Goombas
- Head Swap: Jake and Simons differ from Bred and Dug due to the vests they wear and their jump kick attacks in the arcade version.
- Kick A Barrel At It
- Shout-Out: Simons to Gene Simmons.
Two P and J
The quick fighters in the Mad Gear gang, they were just a step above Bred in being a threat. Two P remained with the gang until Belger's defeat. In Final Fight: Streetwise, Two P changes his name to 2-Ill (he doesn't like to be reminded of his Mad Gear days) and helps Kyle search for his brother by gathering information for him, for a price.
Telling them apart: J has spikey blond hair with a blue headband, yellow jacket and blue pants; Two P has an orange-dyed mohawk with green shades, with orange jacket and green pants.
- Ambidextrous Sprite: J's jacket has the word "BAD" written over it. It becomes mirrored when he faces to the right.
- Ascended Extra: From a regular mook to a significant character, plot-wise, in Streetwise.
- Assist Character: 2-Ill to Kyle in story mode of Streetwise.
- Dirty Coward: Yeah, these guys subscribe to the "jumping an enemy from behind" fighting style.
- Expy/Meaningful Name/Shout-Out: Two P. is based on the Player 2 character from Forgotten Worlds, hence his name ("Two P." as in "2P").
- Gale in Mighty Final Fight is based on J.
- Fragile Speedster
- Head Swap: In the arcade version, Jay has a nuclear symbol on the back of his jacket, while Two P. has a dragon. In the SNES and GBA versions, they both wore nuclear symbols.
- Heel-Face Turn: 2-Ill
- Old Shame: In-Universe for 2-Ill, it was working for Mad Gear and having the name Two P.
- The Informant: 2-Ill to Kyle.
- Sunglasses at Night: 2-Ill in Streetwise
- Who Names Their Kid 2P: Given that a fair deal is given about his name change, and that he didn't change his name to something that sounds very much like his original, 2P's name seems to really be 2P.
El Gado and Holly Wood
Mad Gear's knife-fighters, It is revealed in Final Fight: Revenge
that El Gado infiltrated the gang to kill Rolento who is responsible for the deaths of his family. Eventually Rolento made a deal with him and El Gado spared his life. They appear in Street Fighter Alpha 2
as two of his knife fighters that aids Rolento in battle.
Telling them apart: El Gado has a full beard, a headband and wears a sand-colored outfit; Holly Wood has a goatee, a skull cap and wears a beige outfit.
Poison and Roxy
Part of Mad Gear's acrobatic seemingly female thugs, Poison grew up in a rich family... as a boy. One sex change later, she is disowned by her parents and became one of Metro City's homeless, until she started working for Mad Gear. She and her Palette Swap
Roxy (who may also have been a man in another life) were the gang's acrobatic fighters. After Mad Gear's defeat, Poison develops a crush on Cody and purses him in Final Fight: Revenge
. She realizes that Cody will never love her and after he's arrested, Poison moves on. Some time afterward, she reunites with her old partner Andore (now known as Hugo) from Mad Gear, and together they make a legitimate career in professional wrestling, Poison being the manager and Hugo doing the work.
Refer to this fan-made documentary
about Poison's gender confusion saga.
Telling them apart: Poison has pink hair and shorts; Roxy's are red.
- All There in the Manual: Poison's gender. Character bios in Japanese manuals, guide books, and even design documents, clearly labels Poison as male (or "newhalf," a Wasei-eigo term for pre-op transwomen).
- Ambiguous Gender: With some sources, Poison is outright stated to be a transsexual. Others are left ambiguous. Concept art of Poison also refers her as a "newhalf".
- Roxy as well, given she's effectively a straight up Palette Swap of Poison in the games. The early strategy guides for Final Fight identifies her as a transvestite like Poison, but her bio in Capcom Classics Collection retcons her into a natural female.
- Ascended Extra: From a regular mook and cameos in Hugo's appearances in the Street Fighter III series and SNK vs. Capcom: SVC Chaos, to playable in Revenge and Street Fighter X Tekken.
- Attractive Bent-Gender: This character profile from SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighters DS said it best.
"She's a man, baby! But she's prettier and sexier than any other woman."
- UDON's World Warrior Encyclopedia includes this gem:
"She may seem like a dynamite babe, but anyone who knows the real Poison will tell you she's anything but ladylike!"
- Bare Your Midriff
- Combat Stilettos
- Crossover: Was supposed to appear in the cancelled Capcom Fighting All-Stars before finally making her crossover debut in Street Fighter X Tekken.
- Distaff Counterpart: Poison and Roxy were replaced by Billy and Sid in some of the overseas releases of the first game.
- Expy: Poison and Roxy's younger sister, Poison Kiss in Mighty Final Fight, who is biologically female.
- Kick Chick
- Kiss of Death: Complete with hearts.
- Nice Hat
- Palette Swap: Poison has pink hair, while Roxy has orange.
- She-Fu: Given the time when she was released, it's only natural that this is how she fights.
- She's a Man in Japan: Since the English localizations of the console versions omitted Poison's backstory (or in the case of the SNES version, replaced her and Roxy entirely), the American developers in charge of Final Fight Revenge (unaware of Poison's transgender nature) were under the impression that she is a natural woman and depicted her as such in their game. Street Fighter IV producer Yoshinori Ono addressed this inconsistency years later in a joking manner, saying that in North America, she is "officially a post-op transsexual", but in Japan, "she simply tucks her business away to look female."
- She's Got Legs
- Shout-Out: Poison is named after a band. As Billy and Sid, they are named after Billy Idol and Sid Vicious.
- Underboobs: Both Poison and Roxy.
- Villainous Crossdresser: Poison. Whether or not Roxy is one is up for debate,
- Yet there are official sources that do claim Roxy is a female while Poison is not.
- Villainous Crush: On Cody, according to Revenge.
- Whip It Good: In Revenge. In Street Fighter X Tekken she uses a riding crop.
- Who Wears Short Shorts?: Hot pants to be specific.
- You Gotta Have Pink Or Neon Orange Hair: In Billy's case it's green.
The Andore Family
Originally hailing from West Germany, the Andore family are a family of hulking brutes that worked under Belger as members of the Mad Gear gang. They consisted of Andore, Andore Jr., Father Andore, Uncle Andore, and Grandfather Andore. After the fall of the original Mad Gear gang, Andore tried to pick a fight with Haggar on TV in Final Fight: Revenge
, to no avail. He, Grandfather Andore and Andore Jr. then worked for Retu's Mad Gear faction in Final Fight 2
. Andore was then later recruited by the Skull Cross gang in Final Fight 3
and crime lord Vito Bracca as a pit fighter in Final Fight Streetwise
Hugo from Street Fighter III
is the same character as the "regular" Andore (the one in lavender clothing).
Telling them apart: Andore = magenta ; Andore Jr. = red; F. Andore = yellow; U. Andore = grey; G. Andore = blue.
- Ascended Extra: In Street Fighter III as mentioned, but also Street Fighter X Tekken
- Afro Asskicker
- Crossover: Hugo (confirmed to be the "regular" lavender-clothed Andore) was featured in the Street Fighter III series and SNK vs. Capcom: SVC Chaos.
- Continuity Drift: Andore and Hugo are stated to be one and the same. However, Hugo's official character profile in Street Fighter III makes no mention of having any brothers (only two unseen sisters) and his father, instead of being a wrestler, is a German farmer.
- Dumb Muscle
- Elite Mook: The Handicap, Steel Cage match in the West Side.
- Giant Mook
- Ground Pound
- Mighty Glacier
- Mook Carryover: Be it Mad Gear, Skull Cross or just the run in the mill Italian Mob, the Andore Family has always been part of Metro City's criminal underbelly.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: They are named and modeled after famed wrestler André the Giant. (Andore is pronounced "An-do-re," which is also the Japanese pronunciation for Andre).
- Non-Indicative Name: Andore Jr. is Andore's younger brother, not his son. The rest of his clan are named Father, Grandpa and Uncle, but their exact relation to Andore and Andore Jr. are never clarified, considering they all look exactly the same age (the fact that they're all palette swaps doesn't help).
- The promotional art for the SNES version depicts Grandpa Andore◊ wearing spectacles and Uncle Andore◊ with a mustache, making them stand out from Andore◊ and Junior◊ (Father wasn't in the SNES port until the Guy revision, so he never got any cool full body art).
- Palette Swap: The standard Andore wears lavender clothing, Junior wears red, Father wears gold, Uncle wears black, and Grandpa wears blue. Hugo wears lavender by default, but wears some of the other colors as alternate color schemes.
- Real Men Wear Pink: The regular Andore
- Transplant: Hugo, of the Andore family, joined the Street Fighter III roster starting with 2nd Impact.
- Unique Enemy: The standard Andore and Andore Jr. are recurring mooks, but the Father, Uncle and Grandpa variants are unique to Round 3, and Uncle only appears if a second player is present.
- Wrestling Doesn't Pay: So work for a gang instead.
- Whip It Good: Andore's "Giant Chain"
- Wrestling Family
- Wrestler in All of Us

A Caribbean born bruiser, Damnd is the lowest ranking of Mad Gear's leaders. He is directly responsible for kidnapping Jessica and sells drugs out of Metro City's slums. When he faces Cody, Guy and Haggar, he constantly call for back-up while he takes rests to conserve his energy. After the fall of Mad Gear, Damnd goes into hiding back to the Caribbean but returns to Metro City shortly after.
An American Japanophile decked in a Samurai-like armor and helmet, Sodom was a member of the Mad Gear gang, working as an underground wrestling promoter and undefeated champion in a secret ring within Metro City's subway system. Sodom would use twin katana in his matches, which can be knocked out of his hands by his opponent. After the downfall of the gang in Final Fight, he attempts to revive the Mad Gear gang under his leadership, attempting to recruit his former allies, as well as Japanese sumo wrestlers like E. Honda in Street Fighter Alpha
Far from Metro City's finest, Edi. E is a police officer on Mad Gear's take. He patrolled the city's West Side district, taking out rival gangs and stifling efforts of fellow officers. When he needs to fight, he fights with his gun and night stick in tow. With Mad Gear defeated, Edi. E was one of the lucky few to escape prosecution and even threw some of his fellow members in jail just to throw everyone off. In Final Fight: Revenge
Edi. E grew to hate Cody and helped to get Cody arrested. When Cody broke out of jail in Street Fighter Alpha 3
, Edi. E wasn't far behind.
A German-American mercenary, Rolento F. Schugerg formerly served the American special forces unit the Red Berets before joining Mad Gear as sub-leader, managing the gang's secret drug plant located at Metro City's Industrial Area in the original Final Fight
. The stage was left out of both SNES versions, so Rolento returned as a near-endgame boss of Retu's Mad Gear gang in Final Fight 2
in Italy to compensate for it. In Final Fight: Revenge
and the Street Fighter Alpha
series, Rolento's priorities had changed. He now wants to start his own Utopian Nation with the aid of Mad Gear's knife fighters. In all his appearances, Rolento's fighting style involves lots of rolling, grenade throwing and baton twirling.
The top soldier in Belger's Mad Gear, Abigail controlled the Bay Area. His strength rivaled that of Haggar's and the Andore family, but his power increased two-fold when angered (which was every other second). After Mad Gear's defeat, Abigail disappeared (save for the occasional background cameo in the Street Fighter Alpha
Horace Belger is the mastermind of the Mad Gear Gang, hiding behind the guise of being a businessman. He rides around in a motorized luxurious wheelchair with his weapon of choice being a repeating bolt-action crossbow gun. At first he uses Jessica as a human shield, but Haggar, Cody and Guy get her away from him. Belger is finally defeated, but in Final Fight: Revenge

An ex-sailor turned Mad Gear member, Won Won controls the seaport section in Hong Kong. Respected by the area's local mafia, 108 Dragon, Won Won battles with his signature move, a seismic elbow drop. In the Japanese port of the game, he also had a cleaver, but that was taken out overseas due to censorship issues.

See his entry in Mad Gear Gang (Final Fight)
Retu is the second leader of Mad Gear after its downfall in the first game. In retaliation against their past defeat, Retu kidnaps Guy's master and fiance and holds them hostage.

The head waiter of Creep Eats, a barbecue joint located in the back streets of Metro City. Callman is big but quick and catches opponents off guard with his rush attack.
Drake is a sailor and the gang's weapon supplier who is stationed at Metro City's shipyard. He fights with an anchor but he also has a dashing headbutt and aerial butt smash.
The gang's mechanic, Caine attacks the player with a gigantic wrench in an abandoned bus yard, but this large boss is nearsighted and slow-moving.

- Badass Longcoat
- The Dragon
- Extremity Extremist: Only punches.
- Flunky Boss
- Power Fist: His spiked gauntlets
- Skippable Boss: This involves a little moment of Guide Dang It. To skip him, you have to go to the second room in the third part of stage 5 (or the second part if you came from the Caine-Wong route). Defeat the enemies there, wait a moment, and you'll proceed to another hidden room. There, you have to destroy all the machines with a little help from the mooks. If you destroy all the machines, you can skip him. If you didn't, you'll proceed to the next part of stage 5 instead. The only downfall of this is that you can't see the cinema displayed after you finished the stage in that way, or have access to the bonus game.
- You Gotta Have Purple Hair
Black is the leader of the Skull Cross Gang and the final boss of the game. He uses a riding crop as his main weapon, occasionally throws knives, possesses a spinning attack that is similar to Haggar's lariat, and a ki attack similar to Guy's Palm Blast Attack.
Nicholas "Nicky" Wissell aka the Weasel is a porn dealer in Cody and Kyle's neighborhood and leader of the Blue Ballers gang. Kyle goes to him to force him to reveal information about Cody's whereabouts. Weasel refuses, so Kyle slams his head into a blunt object until he talks
. It is later revealed that he and his gang trafficked the addictive Psycho Serum
GLOW throughout Metro City. The Weasel would face Kyle three times.
Devin Aranoc, aka the Stiff, is The Dragon
to Father Bella. He kidnaps Cody after his thugs fight him and Kyle in Vanessa's bar. Kyle finds Stiff and fights him in a hotel. Stiff first fights by firing his gun, with some assorted kicks if Kyle gets close. If he drops his gun, Kyle can pick it up but the Stiff just pulls out another one. The second fight takes place on the roof of the hotel, where Stiff is unarmed. Stiff is defeated by Kyle and is knocked off the roof. Kyle does manage to save him, but when Stiff pulls out one more gun, Kyle lets him drop to his death.
Dino, aka Blades, was an assassin and enforcer for Vito Bracca, who worked for Father Bella in secret. Kyle and Blades fight in the church cemetery. Blades fights with his twin knives and acrobatic skill. He can use his knives to shield himself from gunfire. Kyle defeats Blades, but he later returns.
Dr. Chang is responsible for the creation of GLOW, though she only did so because her life was threatened by Father Bella. She meets Kyle in a fish packing plant. Kyle rescues her and she reveals that the effects of the GLOW will wear off once the drug has run its course. She leaves to help people in the city but is once again kidnapped and forced to work for Bella. He makes her create his version of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse
using GLOW. When Kyle sees her again, she is distraught by what Bella has made her do, lamenting that she could have helped people.
War is the first of Father Bella's Four Horsemen Kyle faces in Little Italy. War fights with a gating gun and grenades and is invulnerable to physical attacks. He can only be hurt by gunfire, grenades, and molotov cocktails.
Famine is the second of Father Bella's Four Horsemen Kyle faces in Little Italy. He can stretch his arms and uses knife attacks.
Pestilence is the third of Father Bella's Four Horsemen that Kyle faces in Little Italy. Unlike the other horsemen, Pestilence does not seem to have been originally human. Instead, its body seems to be comprised of the corpses of GLOW victims. Initially, Pestilence fights very slowly by spilling acidic GLOW, throwing one of its many limbs and firing out explosive GLOW bubbles at Kyle. Kyle defeats Pestilence the first time, but the creature changes its form into a slimmer, more humanlike form. In this form, Pestilence uses fighting combos, energy blasts and grabbing church pews to use as weapons against Kyle.
Death is the final member of Father Bella's Four Horsemen Kyle faces in Little Italy, but before that he was the first Horseman Kyle faced. In reality, there were two versions of Death: the first one was discovered in the fish packing plant at the Pier District. In addition to his physical attacks, Death uses his mutated bones from his body as weapons and can generate electricity from his body, to protect himself or harm Kyle. He can also eat GLOW-induced rats to regain life.
Kyle faces the second Death on the roof of Father Bella's church. Death's attacks are all unblockable with his Hurricane Punch, Earth Splitter and Power Storm attacks generating green energy from his body. Later, Father Bella helps Death in the fight by injecting more GLOW into his body when he is defeated.
Death 1 aka Stiff Death
Death 2 aka Cody Death
Father Bella (Father Belger)
Father Bella is the mastermind of the GLOW outbreak in Metro City. He forced Dr. Chang to make GLOW in an attempt to take over the city and become its "savior", cleansing it of all sinners. He also held a personal vendetta against Cody. With the services of Stiff, Blades and Weasel, Bella spread GLOW throughout the city and planned to have mob boss Vito Bracca take the blame.
When Kyle faces Death, Bella, first stands on the sidelines, but after he's defeated once, Bella becomes more daring in the second round. As Death attacks, Bella stands a safe distance away, using a bazooka, grenades and a machine gun against Kyle while Death also attacks Kyle. When Death is defeated, Bella injects more GLOW in his body to heal him, holding Kyle off with a sword. Only when both Death and Bella are defeated does Kyle win the fight.
Three of the pit fighters Kyle fights in Final Fight: Streetwise
are Handsome Bob, the Locksmith and the Ghost. Handsome Bob, who is not really that handsome, is Kyle's first opponent who, when knocked down, gets up with a rising hook punch. The Locksmith is a black guy who is only slightly quicker than Handsome Bob and has a Flash Kick
that can combo into an unblockable forward kick. The Ghost may just well be Joe from Street Fighter
, but they really don't say in the game. He is a Muay Thai fighter under Vito Bracca who is a very quick fighter.
Hey it's this guy again, as always see the "The Andore Family entry in Mad Gear Gang (Final Fight)
Lou "The Skin"
Lou is a tattoo artist in Metro City who has a number of tattoos and piercings. He's a member of Guy's crew who uses capoeira as his fighting style.

The final pit fighter in the game, Cammy takes a break from working for Delta Red to kick some ass in Metro City's Japantown district. Why is never explained, but it's not that important. Cammy uses many of her command and special moves from her Street Fighter
appearances. Probably one of the more frustrating characters to fight in the entire series.
Jessica is Mike Haggar's daughter and Cody's ex-girlfriend who must have a damsel in distress
sign taped to her back. She is carried off by Damnd in the beginning of Final Fight
and taken to Mad Gear's hideout. When the heroes finally do find her, she is held tightly by Belger in his lap, but escapes after his wheelchair is broken. Ultimately, she is saved by Cody and the rest in the game's ending. In Final Fight Revenge
she disappears, which plays a central role in that game's storyline. It is never resolved in any of the characters' endings, but Haggar does rescue her from danger. Eventually Cody and Jessica break up after Cody couldn't give up his destructive behavior and she travels to Europe shortly after. She occasionally makes cameos in games involving Final Fight

Genryusai is Guy's master and the father of Maki and Rena. He is taken captive by Retu and the revived Mad Gear during the events of Final Fight 2
. Like Rena, he is never seen again after they were rescued. Note that in the later Street Fighter Alpha
series, it is established that instead of Genryusai, a man named Zeku is the 38th Bushin-style master and Guy's master. As such, it is assumed that Genryusai was Zeku's teacher instead.

Vito Bracca is the boss of a gang in Little Italy during Final Fight: Streetwise
. Despite being a crime boss, Vito is a pious man who hates GLOW's effect on the city
. Kyle interrogates Vito about Cody's whereabouts after his kidnapping. Vito, feeling disrespected, has Blades take Kyle out of his sight. After Haggar tells Kyle to respect Vito, he competes in pit-fights for Vito for free, in exchange for info on Cody. Kyle wins the fights against the Ghost and Andore and gets the info he seeks. Vito lets Kyle keep his winnings as well. After an attack on Japantown, Vito sees Father Bella asking for guidance about the GLOW dilemma.

Madame Celeste is a fortune teller in Kyle's neighborhood in Final Fight: Streetwise. Vanessa sends Kyle to her psychic parlor to get information on Cody's whereabouts. The mystic asks him to play a magic card matching game, before she tells him the future. Once Kyle is successful, Madame Celeste tells Kyle some information and gives him Cody’s house key. It is insinuated that she and Cody had been intimate. Afterwards, she appears in various parts of the city with Kyle having the option to play the matching game again, in which she’ll allude to what Kyle will have to deal with in the near future.
Paco is a tattoo artist that lives in the same building as Kyle, and is trained as a boxer in Final Fight: Streetwise. If paid $100, he'll help Kyle save 2-Ill at the beginning of the game. He also helps Kyle by telling him about Lou "The Skin" designing the tattoo on the mysterious person in Cody's picture. He also trains people for money in Tiger's gym. At one point in the game, he asks Kyle to get rid of the cockroaches in his infested apartment to keep the health inspector away. Apparently, he "smells as bad as a bum at the Barfly, but at least looks like he can throw a punch".
