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). During the events of Street Fighter V Mike Haggar exonerated Cody of his crimes, leading Cody to become the mayor of Metro City and is slowly getting over his depression.
- Blood Knight: Tragically deconstructed. Prior to becoming mayor, he lost the will to try and achieve any kind of constructive goal, such as fighting for justice or protecting family, and fights simply because he finds it fun. Even as he took back his life as mayor of Metro City and is working toward constructive goals again, he still likes a good fight.
- Crossover: Following Guy, Rolento, and Sodom, he appeared in Street Fighter Alpha 3, Street Fighter IV and Street Fighter V. Hugo and Poison join him in Ultra Street Fighter IV (although they already appeared in Street Fighter X Tekken and the Street Fighter III series).
- Demoted to Extra: He only appeared in the first game of the series, returning for the polygonal games.
- Despair Event Horizon: His story after the original game, but prior to his Street Fighter appearances.
- Dull Surprise: In Super Street Fighter IV. Notable because most characters show an "Oh, Crap!" expression when face-to-face with an opponent's Ultra Combo.
- Expy: He's based on Tom Cody from Streets of Fire.
- Fallen Hero: From "The Hero of Metro City" to a convicted vigilante. Thankfully this didn't last.
- Hes Back: In Street Fighter V, he's out of jail and has succeeded Haggar as the mayor of Metro City.
- Hurricane Kick: His "Double Kick."
- I Know Karate: According to the manual of the SNES version, it was said that Cody is a fifth-degree black belt in karate and a boxing expert, not to mention that he's been training in martial arts since he was nine years old. This was retconned, however; it is now said that Cody simply taught himself how to fight simply through his struggles in the harsh slums of Metro City. In that sense, he is the most literal street fighter in Street Fighter.
- Institutional Apparel: Wears the classic prison stripes (though blue-and-white instead of black-and-white) in Street Fighter Alpha 3 and Street Fighter IV.
- He also wears a more contemporary orange jumpsuit in Final Fight Streetwise and as an alternate costume in Super/Ultra Street Fighter IV.
- Jack-of-All-Stats: Not as fast as Guy, but not as strong as Haggar.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Mainly to his brother.
- Ki Attacks: As a GLOW addict in Streetwise.
- Blow You Away: A move he has in Street Fighter Alpha 3 as well, but it's powered up by the effects of the glow.
- Knife Nut: He can throw them so hard it cancels out a Hadoken.
- Peggy Sue: In ''Final Fight One' for the Game Boy Advance, an unlockable variation of him, Alpha Cody. It hits him pretty hard, as the first game was the only time he was a true hero, while he views the events from the perspective of his bitter, totally apathetic SFA 3/SFIV self.
- Perma-Stubble: After the first game.
- Promotion to Parent: To Kyle, sort of...
- Retired Badass: In Streetwise, due to arthritis in his knees. He now spends his time training Kyle, who he believes has the potential to surpass him, but ultimately unknowing of said potential. By the end of the game, thanks to his overdose of GLOW, Cody remarks that his knees are feeling "better than ever", hinting that he's ready to come out of retirement.
- Shout-Out: In Revenge, his Final Finish has him punching the opponent, slowly walking away, and muttering, "You are already dead." as they are hit by numerous invisible strikes.
- Tragic Hero: Even ignoring his various Street Fighter appearances, he still went to jail, still lost Jessica, and in the end of Streetwise when his use of GLOW healed his knees, he still wants to live his life through fighting. As of SFV, Cody's life has gotten better thanks to Mike Haggar and Cody is now mayor.
- Victory Is Boring: Cody is so addicted to fighting that he shows dark elements of this both in Streetwise and Street Fighter Alpha 3.
"Well now. Let's see if we can't do something about my boredom."
- In Street Fighter Alpha, he is thrown in prison and manages to escape just as everyone starts fighting.
- In Streetwise, Father Bella turns him into a fighting monster via drugs.
- Judging from his intro quote in Super Street Fighter IV, he's still like this. Granted, Streetwise, unlike IV, is not considered canon.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: Him and Guy.
- Wolverine Publicity: When Alpha 3 was released for the arcades, Cody was featured either featured prominently or specifically focused on in the promotional illustrations, despite not being even the highest profile new character to the game. He even got to share the packaging illustration of the Sega Saturn version in a dynamic battle pose against perennial Street Fighter icon Ryu.

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.
- Action Politician: Current Trope Image!
- Ambadassador: Time and time again, Haggar will use his fists do his talking when it comes to the issues of crime.
- 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: Haggar is said to weigh over 120kg, and over half of it is estimated to be body hair.
- Badass Normal: He's a president, sure, but he doesn't need guards to do the fighting for him.
- Beware the Nice Ones: A level-headed reasonable man, Haggar will not hesitate to cave in some skulls to save his daughter.
- 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 and Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite.
- The Commissioner Gordon: Subverted, he not only aides the vigilantes, he's out there fighting along side them in every Final Fight game.
- Cool Old Guy: Pushing 50? Check. Pro-wrestler turned mayor? Check. Kicks as much ass as martial artists half his age? Check.
- Crossover: His appearances in Namco × 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), Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. 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, giant wall of muscle with black hair and a killer stache? Trying to rid his city of gang violence that did his family wrong? Yep.
- 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: One of the oldest examples of this trope in video games. He is the slowest of the initial trio and cannot throw enemies, but makes up for it with the most damage output. Not mention he can pull off body busting wrestling maneuvers such as the German Suplex and the Pile Driver. Him being a former pro-wrestler helps.
- 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.
- Papa Wolf: Do not mess with his daughter. It will be a miracle if he lets you live...
- Rated M for Manly: Haggar, along with Cody and Guy, have enough testorone for all of Metro City to share. He's a politician who cleans up crime... by piledriving thugs into the ground and introducing them to the concept of gravity.
- Red Baron: Is lovingly called "Mayor of Earth" in his Marvel vs. Capcom 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").
- Shout-Out Theme Naming: Haggar was named after Michael Anthony and Sammy Hagar, the then-bassist and lead singer, respectively, for Van Halen.
- Spin Attack: The Double Lariat.
- Spinning Piledriver: "Borrowed" the move from Zangief, but it is no less punishing.
- 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 × 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.
- Fighting with Chucks: Nunchaku, his signature weapon in Final Fight 3.
- Flechette Storm: All of his supers in Revenge are this.
- Fragile Speedster: He is the fastest of the original three characters, something that carries over in Street Fighter as one of his special moves is running.
- Highly Visible Ninja: Guy wears red ninja suit (with no mask) and fights people in broad daylight.
- Hurricane Kick: His Bushin Senpūkyaku which was carried over to Street Fighter Alpha
- In Harm's Way: According to the Japanese script, Guy had never actually met Cody before the main game, and had only overheard Cody worrying about Jessica at the gym. As a practitioner of Bushinryu, Guy is obligated to fight against evil, and of course, saw the perfect opportunity to test his skills. Hence, Guy gladly volunteered to help out Cody and Haggar take on the Mad Gear.
- 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.
- Ninja: Guy is the 39th successor of the Bushin-ryuu.
- 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: Guy has a trademark scowl that matches his aloof and serious personality. The only instance in which Guy smiles is in an official art depicting Ryu, Ken, and Guy in casual clothes
- 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: Going hand in had with, perpetual frowner, Guy carries out his duties as a ninja/protector of the world's balance with an almost professional air of detachment. His grim face rarely shows any emotions other than scowl.
- Tall, Dark, and Handsome: One of the reasons why Guy has a fiance.
- Wall Jumper: One of the earliest characters to use the move. Being a ninja, the move an obvious one for Guy to have.
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 France shortly after. She occasionally makes cameos in games involving Final Fight characters.
- Daddy's Girl: Loves her father dearly, to the point where she is in her father's win poses in Saturday Night Slam Masters.
- Damsel in Distress/Save the Princess: The objective of the first Final Fight was to rescue her from the Mad Gear Gang.
- Fingerless Gloves: In the first game's ending.
- Put on a Bus: After breaking up with Cody around the time of Street Fighter Alpha 3, Jessica had decided to head to France to study abroad.
- Sexy Backless Outfit: Her red cocktail dress.
- She's Got Legs: With sexy heels to boot.
- Shameful Strip: When Damnd contacts her father, we see Jessica on the monitor tied up and wearing nothing but her underwear. That scene was cut from the English version of the arcade game, and the SNES version redrew the scene to depict her in her traditional red cocktail dress.
- Shout-Out: The character resembles Ellen Aim the Love Interest in Streets of Fire who is abducted by a motorcycle gang.
Mad Gear Gang
Bred, Jake, Dug and Simons
The Goombas of Final Fight thugs, Bred, Jake, Dug, and Simmons are the low-ranking members of the Mad Gear gang. Bred is a car-obsessed thug who is pretty unlucky, Jake is a physically powerful former bouncer with some martial arts skills, Dug is a carefree houdlum who lives a life of depravity, and Simons is a fighter who uses his position in Mad Gear to take care of his family.
In a bit of a Running Gag, Bred always gets his car 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. And Ultra Street Fighter IV, not even his former Mad Gear allies note offer any sympathy when they wreck his car as well.

- The Goombas: A simple 3-4 punch combo and these guys are out for the night.
- Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow: Dug's SFV profile says that he once had a fancy hairstyle when he was young. Now he's near balding and constantly worries about his hair.
- 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: Sometimes these guys kick oil drums towards the heroes, causing them to roll into the ground.
- Mooks: They are Mad Gear's front line and they have the "honor" of taking on two 20-something fighting prodigies and enraged wrestler mayor first.
- Ms. Red Ink: Mrs. Simons likes to go though her husband's earnings like water with even one instance of her buying Mambo, the cleaning robot without his permission.

- Shout-Out: Simons to Gene Simmons.
- The Stoic: Accoring to his SFV profile, Simons is a stoic man.
- Walking Shirtless Scene: Jake's SFV redesign has his hairy chest only covered by a black biker vest. Simmons also just wears a vest, but his is zipped at the bottom.
- Workaholic: Simmons's new profile highlights his diligence to his job and daily training.
J and Two P
J voiced by: note
Two P voiced by: note
The quick fighters in the Mad Gear gang, they were just a step above Bred in being a threat. J is very introverted and health conscious, while Two P has mysterious origins, being found by the gang with no memory of who he was.
After the gang's demise, J still hangs around with Axl and Roxy, and the three work for Abigail in his custom car shop. 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.
- Ambidextrous Sprite: J's jacket has the word "BAD" written over it. It becomes mirrored when he faces to the right.
- Anime Hair: J whose hair is long and points upwards.
- Ascended Extra: 2P, from a regular mook to a significant character, plot-wise, in Streetwise.
- Assist Character: 2-Ill to Kyle in story mode of Streetwise.
- Cool Shades: Two-P/2-Ill's eyes are never seen.
- Delinquent Hair: J's spiked Anime Hair and Two-P's mohawk.
- 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"). This is once again brought up in Two-P's SFV bio, implying that he is the same 2P from Forgotten Worlds.
- Gale in Mighty Final Fight is based on J.
- Fragile Speedster: They attack and move fast, are a nuisance when you're distracted by a lot of other enemies, but generally have low HP and are quick to kill. J, in particular, is known for his "razor like jabs".
- Goggles Do Nothing: J wears a new spiffy pair in his redesign.
- Handguns: 2-Ill carries on in Streetwise in lieu of actually fighting.
- 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.
- HeelFace Turn: 2-Ill in Streetwise
- The Informant: 2-Ill to Kyle in Streetwise.
- Informed Ability: Two-P apparently skilled with heavy weaponry and his SFV sees him holding a knife, a weapon he's never used in the games.
- Mysterious Past: Two-P was found by Mad Gear collapsed half-naked in the street with no idea who he is/was.
- No Social Skills: In his SFV profile, J is described as being "extremely introverted".
- Old Shame: In-Universe for 2-Ill, it was working for Mad Gear and having the name Two P.
- One-Letter Name: J's name is, well, J.
- Straight Edge Evil: According to his updated profile, J is health nut who only drinks decaf, though evil is pushing it a bit.
- 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. Holly Wood is an escaped convict who happened upon the gang and joined up. They appear in Street Fighter Alpha 2 and 3 as two of his knife fighters that aids Rolento in battle.
- Animal Motifs: Scorpions for El Gado.
- Assist Character: Of Rolento in the Street Fighter Alpha series and Capcom vs. SNK 2.
- Dynamic Entry: Sometimes shows up jumping through their upside down, hitting the player characters if he gets above them.
- Glass Cannon: Rather literally; the red-garbed Holly Woods who throw firebombs in the original game can be taken out with just one hit (mainly because their sole purpose is to pop up in the screen, throw the bomb and leave), while the regular knife-wielding version is fairly tough.
- It's Personal: El Gado against Rolento for killing El Gado's family, but...
- Every Man Has His Price: ... and Rolento found El Gado's to have him spare his life.
- Expy: Tequilla in Mighty Final Fight, who resembles El Gado.
- Head Swap: El Gado has black hair that's either curly with a hair band or covered under a cap depending on the adaption, while Holly Wood always wears a cap. El Gado has a green jumpsuit and a goatee, Holly Wood has a tan or red jupsuit and clean shaven.
- Hidden Depths: Holly Wood is a murderous convict, but also a good singer and dancer.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Knocking them down a couple of times tends to leave the area littered with their knives, which you can pick up and use on anyone - including themselves.
- Invisibility Cloak: El Gado's "Scorpion Veil".
- Knife Nut: They can throw knives, stab with them, and jump overhead to stab downward at the player.
- Meaningful Name: Holly Wood gets his name from the fact that he's a good singer and dancer.
- Molotov Cocktail: Holly Wood (the red-clothed version).

- Palette Swap: There are two variants of Holly Wood. The brown ones are the standard knife-wielding ones, while the red ones throw molotov cocktails.

- Stuff Blowing Up: El Gado with TNT in Revenge and Red Holly Wood in Final Fight.
- Wrestler in All of Us: El Gado's finishing move is the Scorpion Death Lock.
Poison and Roxy
Poison voiced by: note
Roxy voiced by: note
Part of Mad Gear's acrobatic seemingly female thugs, Poison and Roxy grew up in a Los Angeles orphanage. After finding their way to Metro City, the two started working for Mad Gear. They were the gang's acrobatic fighters. After Mad Gear's defeat, Poison develops a crush on Cody and pursues 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. Roxy stays in Metro City's Bay Area with Axl and J, where the three of them work for Abigail's custom car shop.
Refer to this fan-made documentary about Poison's gender confusion saga.
- 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 transgender woman. 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 cisgender 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, Street Fighter X Tekken and Ultra Street Fighter IV.
- 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."
"She may seem like a dynamite babe, but anyone who knows the real Poison will tell you she's anything but ladylike!"
- UDON's World Warrior Encyclopedia includes this gem:
- Bare Your Midriff: Poison and Roxy wear midriff white tank tops:
- Batter Up!: While not used in the game, Roxy wields a metal bat in her SFV portrait.
- Combat Stilettos: They fight in heels and they never seem to fall off despite all the acrobatics they do.
- Contralto of Danger: Roxy is described as having a "characteristic husky voice". The better to lure her foes in with.
- Creepy 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.
- Crossover: Was supposed to appear in the canceled 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.
- Greed: Roxy loves to squander money.
- Kick Chick: Mostly true in the original games as most of their best-known attacks were kicks. By Revenge, Street Fighter X Tekken and USFIV this would be evened out for Poison as she used her riding crop to attack.
- Kiss of Death: Complete with hearts in Revenge.
- Mysterious Past: Roxy has one and apparently doesn't want to talk about it.
- Nice Hat: Roxy and Poison wear these cool biker hats to cover their '80s Hair.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: While not as blatant as Street Fighter III character Effie, but Roxy's redesign is definitely inspired by Harley Quinn.
- 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 cisgender 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: Extenuated by their short shorts and 5'9 frames.
- Shout-Out: Poison is named after a band. As Billy and Sid, they are named after Billy Idol and Sid Vicious.
- Stripperiffic: The ratio for clothing to skin is about 65/35 in favor of skin.
- Underboobs: Both Poison and Roxy.
- 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 in the first game. Afterwards they play the trope straight.
- You Gotta Have Pink or Neon Orange Hair: In Billy's case it's green.
Axl and Slash
Axl voiced by: note
A pair of bikers with powerful attacks and defensive ability. Axl has a wild personality and enjoys tearing through Metro City at night with his biker friends. Slash is very quiet and reserved, making him a respected member of the gang, but he gets emotional whenever he loses at something.
After Mad Gear's defeat, Axl still hangs with J and Roxy in the Bay Area, and works for Abigail at his custom car shop.
- Ambiguously Brown: Slash has fairly dark skin, but it's never stated why — though likely because he is based on the real-life Slash of Guns n' Roses fame, who himself is mixed-race.
- Badass Biker: Both of them, but Axl prefers motorcycles while Slash likes cars.
- Biker's Headband: Axl.
- Blinding Bangs: Slash has them in his new artwork.
- Blocking Stops All Damage: Played straight, but a certain amount of your punch combos can break through it. Averted if any the heroes are equipped with a weapon as it breaks Axl & Slash's blocks instantly.
- Delinquent Hair: Slash fashions an Elvis pompadour, though his SFV artwork changes it to be Blinding Bangs, more in line with his namesake.
- Does Not Like Spam: Axl hates all vegetables.
- Expy: Sarge in Mighty Final Fight.
- Axl and Slash themselves wear an outfit similar to the one wore by Kenshiro during the later chapters of Fist of the North Star
- Head Swap: Axl has long blond hair with a red bandana, and wears black leather; Slash has a pompadour (curly dark hair in the SNES version), and is decked in reddish-brown leather.
- Hell-Bent for Leather: Wearing leather jackets, pants and boots.
- Improvised Weapon: Slash likes using these.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: Modeled after the lead singer and former guitarist from Guns N' Roses, made even more obvious in their SFV artwork where Axl looks like he's pretending to hold a mic and Slash is holding a pipe like a guitar. Also Slash, like his namesake, is now from England.
- The Quiet One/The Stoic: Slash deosn't say much, but acts with professionalism and is repected in Mad Gear. He also hates noisy people, but ironically he shouts and yells when he plays games himself.
- No Shirt, Leather Jacket: Axl and Slash go shirtless, exposing their muscles.
- Shout-Out Theme Naming: Axl Rose and Slash from Guns N' Roses.
- Stone Wall: Outside of blocking, they only have two attacks: a hammer fist and a kick. Yet despite that, they are known for doing as much damage as most bosses. The exception is Sodom, Edi. E, Abigail and Belger.

A trio of heavy-set fat goons that charge at the opponent head first. Bill Bull is a hot-headed drunk with his own special cocktail of sauce, soy sauce, mustard, chili oil and salad dressing. Graham Oriber is a confident guy who believes himself to have the greatest leg strength of the trio. Wong Who is a relative of T.U.S.K, one of F.A.N.G's underlings in the Nguuhao.
- Acrofatic: None of them can do flips, but they can charge at you really quickly if the player is not prepared for it They can also deliver a fairly impressive standing high kick.
- The Alcoholic: His special "cocktail" aside, Bill Bull is known to down a whole bottle of beer, gets angry and smashes the bottle.
- Alliterative Name: Bill Bull and Wong Who. Averted with G. Oriber, whose initial stands from "Graham".
- Ambiguously Brown: According to All There in the Manual, G. Oriber and Bill Bull are supposed to be of Arabic and Mexican respectively, but you wouldn't know it from looking at the concept or official artwork.
- Badass Beard: G. Oriber and Bill Bull. The former wears a standard beard, and the latter, a full Amish beard with thick sideburns that he's quite proud of.

- Hot Blooded Sideburns: G. Oriber has a pair, and prefers to maintain them with a straight razor rather than an electric one.
- Mighty Glacier: Sometimes they border on Lightning Bruiser; especially if any of them are charging from off-screen. What doesn't help is that they have a limited ability to change direction in mid-charge, which makes them difficult to avoid safely.
- Nice Shoes: They all sport clog-style shoes in the games. Changed in their SFV artwork to more normal shoes.
- Nutritional Nightmare: Bill Bull's favorite drink is his special cocktail comprised of Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, mustard, chili oil and salad dressing. Lately, he's been adding honey to mellow it out.

The Andore Family
Hugo voiced by: note
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 and Ultra Street Fighter IV.
- Afro Asskicker: The entire family. When you're based on one of the mightiest pro-wrestlers in the world, you tend to do that.
- Badass Family: Of course.
- Chained by Fashion: Wears a chain around the waist.
- 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.
- Depending on the Artist: While the Andores have the same in-game design, since they're all palette swaps, the promotional art for the Super Famicom version depicts Grandpa Andore◊ with 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 full body art for this version).
- Dumb Muscle: Hugo, who is a borderline Manchild, sought to challenge Haggar to a fight and never figured out his message never even hit air.
- Elite Mook: The Handicap, Steel Cage match in the West Side.
- Giant Mook: This game's equivalent to Abobo. Largest mook in the game, and one of the toughest.
- Ground Pound: Hugo/Andore has several moves like this in Revenge SFIII and SF 4 all of them end up squashing his foes into the pavement.
- Mighty Glacier: The Andores' may be slow (still faster than the fat enemies), but their attacks freaking hurt! In addition to their punch attacks, they have a charging punch, a choke attack, a throw, and can jump on you when you're knocked down. The Andore family have the most health out of all the mooks.
- 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).
- Nonindicative 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).
- 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/Hugo wears lavender.
- 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: At least five members: You have the standard issue one (Andore/Hugo), his brother (Junior), his father, his uncle and his grandfather.
- Wrestler in All of Us: That wrestler being André the Giant. Still, they will slam the heroes into the street with pile drivers of their own.

A Dominican Republic 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.
- Casanova Wannabe: Hits on Maki in the Caribbean in his ending. Sadly, his tired pick-up lines lead him to get buried deep into the sand.
- Clean Dub Name: Called Thrasher for the SNES and Sega CD ports of Final Fight.
- Cool Shades: Wears a classic pair for most of his appearances, until being upgraded to a pair of shutter shades as of his SFV artwork.
- Cowardly Boss: Fights for a little bit, then, once he realizes he's getting beat, he'll jump back, call for reinforcements and take a breather. Only when the heroes are surrounded will he fight again taking a cheap shot as he does so.
- Dark-Skinned Blond: He's a black man with golden dreads, it is unknown if it's dyed or not.
- Dynamic Entry: He'll use this for a cheap shot twice during your fight with him.
- Evil Laugh: His demented cackle, which he does just before taking Jessica into the Slums and when he fights the heroes.
- Flunky Boss: Disposable minions are just a whistle away.
- Guyliner: He is depicted with multicolored nail polish in Mighty Final Fight and Street Fighter V, with pink on his thumbs, red on his index fingers and pinkies, blue on his middle fingers and lime green on his ring fingers.
- Just Whistle: Which he'll do 3-4 times to summon more thugs until he's beaten.
- Our Founder: In Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite, there's a giant statue dedicated to him in New Metro City. Although he's the lowest ranking member of Mad Gear's bosses, the statue is there out of the gang's respect for him having the balls to kidnap the mayor's daughter.
- Scary Black Man: A massive wall of muscle who is taller and larger Haggar with a demented cackle matched with his unnerving Dee Jay levels of smiling. Subverted as he's more scared of you than you are of him and being the first boss, he's the least scary by default.
- Signature Laugh: Yup. He'll guffaw whenever one of his goons knock you down. Or even if you're idling.
- Spin Attack: His rolling attack, which he will use to follow up with a kick or retreat back to his stoop and rest.
- Super Armor: One of his specials in Revenge is gaining temporary super armor.
- Sunglasses at Night: In Revenge as there are night stages.

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.
- Arch-Enemy: Sodom is treated as this to Guy.
- Cool Helmet/Cool Mask
- Clean Dub Name: Called Katana for the SNES and Sega CD ports of Final Fight.
- Crossover: Has appeared in the three games of the Street Fighter Alpha series.
- Dual Wielding: Sodom starts out with two katanas. When one or both of them are knocked out of his hands, he will get up and try to retrieve them as quickly as possible.
- Evil Counterpart: Of Guy. Guy is a Japanese-American ninja, while Sodom is an American who desperately wants to be a Japanese samurai.
- Gratuitous Japanese: In-Universe. Sodom constantly uses Japanese phrases, but spectacularly messes up he pronounciation, or even the words, leading to occasional gibberish phrases. Even the kanji on his armour is incorrect.
- Katanas Are Just Better: Uses them in his Subway boss battle as well as his X-Ism mode in Street Fighter Alpha 3. Along with his Jitte from his Street Fighter appearances, they are his most iconic weapons.
- McNinja: He's a McSamurai, as he's really American, but speaks entirely in Gratuitous Japanese (and messes up the pronunciation spectacularly) and dual-wields katanas.
- Never Bareheaded: He always wears his kabuto helmet and mask, and his face has never been shown without them. The only parts of his face that are visible are his eyes and mouth, which are usually pretty shadowy. The only time he's lost his mask was in the Street Fighter Alpha manga, where it gets broken by a kick to the face, leading him to cover his face and demand everyone to look away.
- Occidental Otaku: Sodom is obsessed with Japanese culture, which is why he dresses like a samurai. The Street Fighter series often plays this up even further, by having his win quotes be hilariously Gratuitous Japanese.Sodom: Die job death car? (Daijobu desu ka? - Are you ok?)
- Public Domain Artifact: Both of his katanas are Masamune. Unlike the Muramasa normally found in other stages, they don't disappear if the player is knocked out wielding one.
- Samurai: Tries to get the look down by wearing a samurai kabuto, "armor" (shoulder pads from American Football), tabi and zori. He also uses samurai weaponry, specifically his swords.
- Shout-Out: Named after a Thrash Metal band.
- Unfortunate Names: While his name comes from a rock band, it's not lost on those that Sodom is also the name of a city that was destroyed by God in the Bible.
- Wake-Up Call Boss: Once Damnd is dealt with, the real boss battles start with Sodom. Simply punching him normally only took off a sliver of a fraction of his health with each hit, forcing you to rely on throws or to pick up one of his dropped swords to attack him. In terms of offense, his katans and unpredictable rushing attack can take off anywhere close to one half of a full health bar.
- We Used to Be Friends: Sodom never forgave Rolento for not supporting his attempts to rebuild Mad Gear.
- Wicked Cultured: He is well-versed in many elements of Japan's culture; a point of humor, however, is that his usage of the language is somewhat dubious, as shown with the (incorrect) kanji on his costume and several of his win quotes.
- Worthy Opponent: Sees Guy as this after his defeat.

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.
- Acrofatic: Despite being heavyset, Edi. E is a relatively fast runner in Final Fight.
- Ambiguously Brown: In Final Fight games he's this; in Final Fight Revenge, he's black, and in any other appearance, he's much lighter.
- Anti-Villain: Type III. According to backstory, since he was not getting enough money to support his wife and three children at home in his old job, he was lead astray into working for Mad Gear since Belger was rich and offered other members of Mad Gang outrageous amounts of money
- Arch-Enemy: Following the events of Final Fight, Edi. E becomes this for Cody. The former deliberately frames the latter for Poison's crimes out of spite. When Cody breaks out in Alpha 3, Edi.

- Fat Slob: Implied, notably in how he starts the fight by spitting his gum right on the ground where you fight.
- Flunky Boss: After a few good hits on Edi. E, Mad Gear's underling come to gang up on the heroes and it continues until the corrup cop nears his defeat.
- Hand Cannon/Revolvers Are Just Better: His .44 Magnum

- Nice Hat: Standard issue MCPD peaked cap, it completes his uniform.
- Verbal Tic: Saying "Bang" when he fires his gun in Revenge. He can be made to fire his gun twice, resulting in "Ba-bang!"

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.
- Better to Die than Be Killed: Drops the rest of his grenades around himself upon defeat. Not that the death sticks.
- Bomb-Throwing Anarchists: He uses grenades in close combat, for crying out loud!
- Colonel Badass: Whether he actually is a colonel or not is unknown. What is known is who he's based off of (see Expy below) and what he can do in a fight.
- Cool Plane: His own personal assault helicopter.
- Crossover: Made it into the Street Fighter Alpha series since 2, and he's part of the Capcom vs. SNK 2 roster, as well. In fact, alongside Maki, they're the first Final Fight characters to make appearances in Capcom's Vs series.
- Expy: One of the many, many characters to crib notes from the Golan Colonel.
- Fingerless Gloves: He wears a brown pair as part of his uniform.
- Fragile Speedster/Glass Cannon: He's a quick and dangerous foe to do battle with, but he can't sponge damage like the others.
- From Camouflage to Criminal: Rolento's backstory is that he was a member of the US Special Forces who became a merc working with Mad Gear after leaving the military behind.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: A massive scar going from the top of his head, to the bridge of his nose going under his eye. Totally an evil scar.
- Lightning Bruiser: Other bosses may run and jump around, but Rolento almost never stops dashing, bouncing, and rolling all over the place, making it very hard to get a hit on him.
- Mad Bomber: Closing in on his defeat, Rolento throws every single last grenade he has at Cody, Haggar and Guy. When he looses, he drops all his remaining grenades around him and goes out in a fireball.
- Mysterious Middle Initial: F.
- Nice Hat: He's showing those dweebs how to rock a beret.
- Simple Staff: Rolento style of fighting, although his is more of a command baton rather than a weapon.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Spelled "Rolent" in Final Fight 2 and in his Alpha 2 ending.
- Tank Goodness: His ending in Revenge.
- Turns Red: In Final Fight and FF2.
- Unnecessary Combat Roll: All the freaking time - they should have called him Roll-ento while they were at it. However, rolling is far from unnecessary for him, since it's actually the basis of his acrobatic combat style.
- Wall Jumper: In a move that is or inspired his Mekong Delta Escape, Rolento jumps from one end of the elevator to the other to kick the heroes.

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), until finally returning as a playable character in Street Fighter V.
- The Berserker: This man has major anger issues and very little restraint. This mentality also makes him sloppy in battle.
- Bullfight Boss: Charges his opponent to either bum rush his opponents or grab them and slam them hard.
- Crossover: Follows in the footsteps of Guy, Sodom, Rolento, Cody, Hugo, and Poison by making an appearance in an installment of the Street Fighter series, Street Fighter V.
- Facial Markings: Has a black and white face tattoo similar to that of a pro wrestler.
- Flunky Boss: Like most of the bosses, Mad Gear's lower rung guys get involved when Abigail gets knocked down a couple times.
- Gender-Blender Name: Being named after a rock album doesn't make his name any less girlish.
- The Giant: He's colossal, standing at 8' tall, making him the single largest character in the Street Fighter / Final Fight universe.
- Head Swap: If not for that different head, he'd be another member of the Andore family due to the rest of him have the same body type and fighting style with a white version of the same clothes.
- Referenced in Street Fighter V where some of his colors are those of the Andore family.
- Mighty Glacier: Mad Gear's most powerful member that's around the size of the Andore family.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: He has the same André the Giant shaped body as Andore, and his head is modeled after Road Warrior Animal.
- Put on a Bus: Not seen in Revenge with the other Final Fight bosses.

- Wrestler in All of Us: Has running powerslam as one of his more deadly moves.

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, Belger attempts to get his revenge on the heroes.
- Automatic Crossbows: His Weapon of Choice, the man does not even throw a punch or kick.
- Authority Equals Asskicking: An Evil Counterpart of Haggar, he's the head of the Mad Gear gang yet can more than handle himself in a fight.
- Badass in a Nice Suit: Dressed like he's going to a formal event of some kind, complete with bow-tie.
- Bald of Evil/Beard of Evil: A jet black beard worthy of stroking and a round dome on top. Add to the fact that he's made lots of money running crime, then the "Evil" part of it is also correct.
- Big Bad: Runs the Mad Gear gang, arranged Jessica's kidnapping and caused most the ills that's inflicted Metro City. He also is the heroes' Final Fight of the game.
- Bottomless Magazines: Similar to Edi. E, except he can use the crossbow from the start of the battle.
- Corrupt Corporate Executive: Runs a company as a front to cover his illegal activity.
- Cyborg: In Mighty Final Fight.
- Destination Defenestration / Disney Villain Death: With a dose of tactical suicide, Belger jumps next to the window of his high-rise tower and refuses to leave when his health is low. Naturally, the final hit knocks him out of the window and he falls to his death.
- Evil Cripple: He's faking it.
- Flunky Boss
- I Have Your Girlfriend: Not a good idea at all in hindsight; not only does kidnapping Jessica press Cody's Berserk Button, but it presses Haggar's as well.
- I Own This Town: He did until Haggar became mayor, at least, and the kidnapping was his attempt to keep it that way.
- Killed Off for Real: But became part of The Undead in Revenge.
- Obfuscating Disability
- Spared by the Adaptation: In the Final Fight episode of the American Street Fighter cartoon, he falls off his building like he does in the game, but one of his suspenders is conveniently caught by a flag pole just before his body hits the pavement.
