Introduced in Final Fight 2, Carlos Miyamoto is a South American swordsman, martial artist and former bodyguard 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.


Supporting Characters

    Rena Genryusai 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/japan_4602.png

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. As of Street Fighter V however, she is still said to be Guy's fiance.

    Genryusai 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/japan_4602.png

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. If, Maki's Capcom vs. SNK 2 text ending treated as canon, then it is because he had died sometime after being 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.

  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Like Rena, after he was rescued, he's never seen again. As mentioned, he died in Maki's CvS2 text ending, so he may be gone for good.
  • Distressed Dude/Save Maki's Father: The objective of the Final Fight 2 was to rescue him and his daughter from the Mad Gear Gang.
  • Flat Character: The only things he had going for him is that he was the head of the Genryusai family, celebrated practitioners of the Bushin-ryuu style, master to Guy and father of Rena and Maki. None of that is explored at all and Guy being his student is retconed out. Since he's (most likely) dead, it's doubtful if he'll have any more characterization in the future.
  • Informed Ability: With him spending the entirety of FF2 being kidnapped, the badass who trained Guy and Maki is never shown. It's never even explained if he put up a fight whn him and Rena were being abducted. Granted he's older now, but it's the lack of detail about him that makes it confusing.
  • Old Master: To Guy, originally before Street Fighter's retcon, though it's still valid, especially as he trained Maki how to fight.
  • Satellite Character: Like Rena, there isn't much to him other that he's important to Maki and Guy and was taken by the Mad Gear gang, so the heroes must rescue him.
  • Unwilling Suspension: How Retu restrained him and Rena during the game's final battle.

Mad Gear Gang

Underlings

    Jack and Schot 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/usa_1961.png
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/UK_9231.png
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ff2_jackschot.png
The most average of the enemies in the game. Jack is a very fashion-conscious guy who spends most of his money on clothes and wants to open his own clothing shop in the future. Schot is a former member of an English punk band called "BigB & Bullheads", a band presumably founded by Birdie.


  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Schot originally had an orange mohawk in his Final Fight 2 art, but his art on the CFN website colors it black, which is more in line with how he looked in-game.
  • Cool Shades: Jack has a pair. Schot does too in his CFN redesign.
  • Delinquent Hair: Schot has a spiky orange mohawk (Or black in-game and in his CFN redesign).
  • The Fashionista: Jack, an unusually manly example that prevents him from being The Dandy. He's very fashion-conscious and spends most of his money on clothes.
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: Average in all ways. They're faster than Bull and Elijah, but not as strong. They're stronger than Mic and Mark, but not as fast. They're right in the middle.
  • The Goomba: By far the most simple of the enemies of the game. Nothing stands out about them.
  • Nice Hat: Jack wears a backwards baseball cap, and hats are his favorite article of clothing.
  • Not a Morning Person: Jack hates getting up in the morning.
  • One Degree of Separation: Schot used to be in a punk band in England called "BigB & Bullheads". It's more than likely that Birdie was the founder of the band, given his English origins, his large size, and his Bull Head special move.
  • The Quincy Punk: Schot used to be in a punk band, and now works in a record shop specializing in punk music.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": As he's English, Schot is most likely supposed to be "Scott".
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: As the lowest ranking members in the gang, they're the equivalent of Bred, Jake, Dug and Simons.

    Bull and Elijah 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cnada_6.png
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/usa_1961.png
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ff2_bullelijah.png
Another pair of common enemies, slightly tougher than Jack and Schot. Bull, despite his appearance and profession, is actually a Nice Guy who grew up in nature and loves animals. Elijah is a smuggler who lives with his mother in downtown Metro City and styles his hair like Tony Stark.


  • '80s Hair: Elijah had long, flowing hair, although his CFN artwork changes it to be shorter, and adds a beard and mustache. The reason why is actually stated to be because his favorite conditioner was discontinued, so he went with a new look after seeing a certain superhero movie.
  • Badass Beard: Bull has one, and so does Elijah (as well as a Badass Mustache) in his CFN redesign.
  • Basement-Dweller: Elijah still lives with his mother.
  • Cool Shades: Elijah has a pair with red lenses in his CFN redesign.
  • Delinquent Hair: Bull has a short mohawk.
  • Does Not Like Spam: Elijah hates raw fish.
  • Family Man: Bull has a wife and daughter who he loves.
  • Fingerless Gloves: Both of them wear a pair.
  • Mighty Glacier: Subverted. They're stronger and slower than Jack and Schot, but they're not the definitive musclemen of the gang. That honor belongs to Atlas, Jony and the Andores.
  • Minion with an F in Evil: Despite being part of the Mad Gear Gang, Bull is actually a big softie. He's a nature lover with a wife and child who also adopted a stray dog. He's also thinking about quitting the gang since he hurt his back.
  • Mythology Gag: Bull is stated to have adopted a stray white dog. There's a white dog in the original Final Fight that appears in the Bay Area.
  • Name's the Same: There's Bull, and then there's Bill Bull, one of the fat enemies from the original Final Fight.
  • Nature Lover: Bull grew up in nature, and as such loves plants and animals.
  • Race Lift: Elijah has darker skin than in his original artwork, but it's also closer to how he looks in-game.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Bull and Elijah are slightly tougher versions of Bred, Jake, Dug and Simons.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Neither of them wears a shirts, only a pair of criss-crossed suspenders.

    Mic and Mark 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/frenchfag_214.png
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/usa_1961.png
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ff2_micmark.png
A pair of low-ranking grunts who can move quickly, but have low health and damage output. Mic is an overconfident French Jerk living in a leaky apartment, and Mark is a Camp Gay wannabee actor.


  • Bald of Awesome: Mic is bald, contrasting with Mark's prominent pompadour.
  • Bare Your Midriff: In Mark's CFN redesign, his tank top doesn't fully cover his torso.
  • Camp Gay: Mark became one in his CFN redesign. He wears lipstick, perfume, and likes handsome men.
  • Cool Shades: Mic has a pair.
  • Delinquent Hair: Mark has a pompadour.
  • Expy: Mark was turned into a Camp Gay in his CFN redesign, specifically as a reference to Puri-Puri Prisoner.
  • The Fighting Narcissist: Mark loves beautiful things, of which he includes himself, similar to Vega. Mic is also overconfident and looks down upon others.
  • Fingerless Gloves: They both wear a pair.
  • Fragile Speedster: Mic and Mark move quickly, but don't do much damage and go down easily.
  • French Jerk: Mic is French and an overconfident jerk, but he isn't exactly overtly French.
  • Large Ham: The reason Mike keeps getting rejected at acting auditions.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: As the quick fighters, they're the equivalent of J and Two P from the first game.
  • Vanity Is Feminine: Mark is a narcissist, and his CFN redesign gives him some feminine traits, like wearing lipstick and perfume.
  • Waiting for a Break: In addition to being in the Mad Gear Gang, Mark is also a struggling actor.

    Elias, Eliot, and Joe 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/usa_1961.png
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/UK_9231.png
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ff2_eliaseliotjoe.png
A trio of tall, lanky men. Elias is a quiet but knowledgeable man who knows a lot about fortune telling and lucky items. Eliot is quiet and serious, but becomes very emotional when he gets drunk. Joe grew up in a strict household, which stressed him out and caused him to become an arsonist. Elias and Eliot attack using batons, while Joe throws Molotov cocktails.

    Eliza and Mary 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/usa_1961.png
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ff2_elizamary.png
A pair of knife-wielding women. Eliza is a lowbrow woman who tends to pursue fads, and used to be a singer in a rock band. Mary is a health nut who likes jogging and cleaning. Eliza has a brother named Leon, while Mary has a brother named Robert.


  • Artist Disillusionment: Eliza used to be the singer in a rock band, but got bored of it and quit.
  • Bowdlerise: The two were removed from the US and European versions and instead replaced with two punks called Leon and Robert, similar to what happened with Poison and Roxy being replaced by Billy and Sid in the first game. Their CFN profiles state that Eliza and Leon are siblings, and so are Mary and Robert.
  • Distaff Counterpart: Leon and Robert to Mary and Eliza.
  • Bare Your Midriff: They wear bra top shirts that show off their midsections.
  • Knife Nut: Mary and Eliza dual wield a pair of knives in battle.
  • Neat Freak: Mary likes cleanliness and hates cockroaches, and Eliza hates dirty people.
  • She-Fu: They use lots of kicks and lots of flips.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: They're the equivalent of Poison and Roxy, right down to being censored in the US and European version of their game.
  • Stripperiffic: Sure, their thigh high boots cover a little more than Poison and Roxy's heels but they still dress in a very skimpy manner.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: When Mary was a kid, she wanted to be a florist when she grew up.
  • Who Wears Short Shorts?: Much like Poison and Roxy.

    Atlas and Jony 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/usa_1961.png
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ff2_atlasjony.png
A pair of heavily muscled men with strong attacks and the ability to block. Atlas was once a promising young athlete who threw it all away and now lives a life filled with violence and alcohol. Jony has a short temper and flies into a rage easily, but he at least gets along well with Atlas.


    Elick 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/usa_1961.png
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ff2_elick.png
A portly man who attacks with a pair of electrical tuning forks. As a child, he was a prankster who greatly admired his father, who worked at the Metro City power plant, so he studied electrical engineering.


  • Badass Mustache: His CFN redesign gives him one.
  • Dual Wielding: Has an electric tuning fork in each hand.
  • Expy: His CFN redesign gives him a mustache, black goggles and a pink nose, making him look like Porco Rosso.
  • Fat Bastard: Like the pudgy enemies from the last game, Elick is fat, but is at least part muscle.
  • Like Father, Like Son: His use of electricity comes from his admiration of his father, who worked in the Metro City power plant.
  • Nice Hat: Wears a backwards baseball cap.
  • The Prankster: Loved pulling pranks since he was a kid, and still does today.
  • Psycho Electro: Charges forks first in an effort to stab the heroes and shock them.
  • Punny Name: His name is Elick, and he uses electric attacks.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: He's the replacement for the fat enemies from the first game, Bill Bull, G. Oriber, and Wong Who.

Bosses

    Won Won 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hongkong_5398.png
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ff2_wonwon.png
An ex-sailor turned Mad Gear member, Won Won controls the seaport section in Hong Kong. Respected by the area's local mafia, 800 Dragons, 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.


  • The Alcoholic: Alcohol is one of his favorite things.
  • Bald of Evil/Braids of Barbarism: Won Won's haircut complete with his braid wrapped in an orange bow.
  • Bowdlerise: His meat cleaver was taken away in western versions.
    • Ironically, at the same time, his occupation was changed to say he was a former chef. Cue Facepalm.
    • Even better, his "shoulder bash" still has a *slash* sound effect when it hits.
  • Chef of Iron: Won Won's a renowned gourmet that specializes in mǐxiàn recipes and hates food that isn't fresh.
  • Flunky Boss: The underlings attack as soon as the fight starts.
  • Knife Nut: At least in Japan, in the other ports of the game, he's just a nut.
  • Not-So-Safe Harbor: His stage in Hong Kong and established as his turf, even by the Mafia.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: His elbow drop, which deals massive damage.

    Freddie 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/usa_1961.png
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ff2_freddie.png
A former member of the US Marine Corps, Freddie was dishonorably discharged after he accidentally killed his commanding officer. He became a mercenary hired by Mad Gear to lead their terrorism unit in France. His moves include a charging attack, a head crush move, a jumping attack (done after he knocks the player down), a lunging knee attack and a piledriver.


    Bratken 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/netherlands_flag.jpg
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ff2_bratken.png
A mentally unstable Dutchman with the body of Frankenstien's Monster, but the mindset of a child. He was bribed by Mad Gear with a roomful of toys and is imprisoned in the room when not needed. He has a throw, a flying jumpkick and a dashing punch that does massive damage.


  • Dumb Muscle: Dumb enough to be manipulated by Mad Gear, strong enough to break out of his cell to fight the heroes.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: Being a Psychopathic Manchild, the only two things he likes are toys and his mother.
  • Flunky Boss: Despite his unstable nature, the thugs are brave enough (or dumb enough) to give Bratken a hand.
  • Frankenstein's Monster: Bratken's overall design clearly brings this image to mind.
  • Manchild: He was bribed using a room full of toys, after all.
  • Mighty Glacier: Yet another Goliath that towers over Haggar with enough power to knockdown the heroes in one blow.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Mentally unstable, he is a threat to "friend" or foe alike, unless he gets a lot of toys to play with.
  • Rummage Sale Reject: While what he wears isn't the worst the trope has to offer, it's clear by his gawdy, mismatched clothing and belt tied around his shirt, that dressing himself is not his forte.
  • Security Blanket: His best friend is a teddy bear.

    Phillippe 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/UK_9231.png
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ff2_phillipe.png
Philippe is the clown-faced ringmaster working for the R & B Circus, smuggling weapons, drugs and other illegal goods for Mad Gear through it. He uses a cane to battle his opponents. He is able to grab his enemy and strike repeatedly with it, which is very damaging. He also has a sliding attack that knocks his opponent down instantly.


  • The Ace: As the ringmaster of his circus, he's a juggler, animal handler, clown, smuggler, cane fighter, whip fighter and his body is in a toned, fighting shape.
  • Cane Fu: Phillipe uses his cane to strike enemies from a distance.
  • Flunky Boss: After the start of the battle, Mad Gear thugs will appear to fight.
  • It's All About Me: He hates palying attention to others.
  • Monster Clown: An evil clown who smuggles items to terrorists using his circus as a front, yep he qualifies.
  • Nice Hat: Wears top hat similar to what magicians wear.
  • Slide Attack: One of his special moves is a baseball slide.
  • Whip It Good: His SFV profile and art has him drawn with a large crop-style whip and says that's his other Weapon of Choice.

    Retu 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/japan_4602.png
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ff2_retu.png
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. With a deadly spin-kick and powerful strikes, Retu held his own against a battle with Haggar, Maki and Carlos, but was defeated.


  • Anime Hair: Having elements of a kabuki in his wardrobe, Retu's hair (or wig) is ankle-legnth, flowing and very very hot pink.
  • Big Bad: The leader of the Mad Gear gang in Final Fight 2 and responsible for kidnapping Rena and Genryusai. According to his SFV profile, his infuence expands to all of Asia.
  • Disney Villain Death: Just like Belger, Retu has an unhealthy obsession with the paper-thin shoji style walls at the top of his high-rise building. Naturally, the final hit knocks him out of the window and he falls to his death.
  • Facial Markings: His face is painted in the kumadori style of makeup used by kabuki artists.
  • Hurricane Kick: Has the Kaiten Senpukyaku, a jumping spin kick similar to that used by Street Fighter's shoto characters.
  • It's Personal: While he is avenging the defeat of the US Mad Gear branch, it is implied that there is more to his kidnapping of Maki's family according to his SFV profile. His dislike is Bushin-ryuu and he had some sort of falling out with a Bushin-ryuu-related person.
  • Name's the Same: An alternate way of spelling his name is Retsu, which is the same name of the monk from the first Street Fighter.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: With his heavily Japanese aesthetic, he's conceptually similar to Sodom, although Retu is at least genuinely Japanese.
  • Villain Ball: He's the only other boss in the entire game to not be a Flunky Boss (the other being Rolento). Had he had help in the fight, it probably would have had him in a 3-on-1 loss that ultimately ended in his death.
