He's then arrested again for taking the blame for a crime Guy committed (though he can escape at any time he wants), which led to the end of their friendship.

Mad Gear Gang (Final Fight)
Bred, Dug, Jake and Simons
The Goombas 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.
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.
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 and 3 as two of his knife fighters that aids Rolento in battle.
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.
The tropes below explains the long complicated story on why Poison and Roxy are transwomen/transvestites.
Refer to this fan-made documentary about Poison's gender confusion saga.
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).
Axl and Slash
A pair of bikers with powerful attacks and defensive ability.
G. Oriber, Bill Bull and Wong Who
A trio of heavy-set fat goons that charge at the opponent head first.
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 series).
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.

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
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. While Kyle was searching for his brother Cody, he finds a picture of Cody's with a mobster with a tattoo. He asks the Skin about it in his parlor, who unexpectedly clocks Kyle over the head with a cash register. The tattoo is revealed to belong to Guy. After some misunderstandings, Lou fights Kyle using his acrobatic fighting style and loads of kicks. Kyle defeats him and Lou becomes a pit fighter, Kyle can face in Japantown.
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 characters.
Rena is Guy's fiancée and Genryusai's eldest daughter. Like Genryusai, she is taken captive by Retu during the events of Final Fight 2. Unlike Jessica and her sister, Maki, she and her father haven't appeared since.
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.
Vanessa Sims is the girlfriend of Kyle Travers and owner and bartender of the "Barfly" lounge in Final Fight: Streetwise. When Kyle’s brother, Cody, is taken captive by the Stiff in her bar, Vanessa does her best to provide information and ideas to Kyle to find Cody. She also has her brother on the MCPD aiding Kyle in his search. During the GLOW-induced riots on Metro City, Kyle and former Mad Gear member 2-ill saved her life.
Sergeant Sims is a deep cover cop for the MCPD (Metro City Police Department) in Final Fight: Streetwise. By the request of his sister, Vanessa, Sims assisted her boyfriend, Kyle into looking for his missing brother, Cody. He wanted Kyle not to get involved due to the danger Cody was in and sought to arrest Cody for using GLOW. When Sims traced the source of the GLOW to a church in Little Italy during the city riots, Sims along with Kyle and whatever officers he had left attempted to storm the church.
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. Unaware of Bella's true intentions, Vito begins to pray at his suggestion.
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".
