    Default Characters: Babyface 

Reiko Hinomoto

Voiced by: Noriko Hidaka (Japanese), Bianca Allen (Rumble Roses), Michelle Ruff (Rumble Roses XX, Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence) (English)

  • All-American Face: Japanese in this case as she loves her country. Her superstar outfit is based on the Japanese flag.
  • The Baby of the Bunch: Obvious within her own family to the point Evil Rose will protect her at all cost, but many Roses of the division such as Dixie, Aisha, and Anesthesia already know of her despite Reiko never meeting them because of said Roses knowing of either of her mother or older sister. She doesn't get this in terms of appearance as Candy Cane does however and Reiko is also in general more mature and level headed than Candy.
    • In Reiko's own story mode Anesthesia taunts Evil Rose quite harshly for "losing to her own baby sister" after Reiko defeats Evil Rose.Anesthesia also rubs in Evil Rose's face that Reiko will be the one in the "Mother Daughter Showdown".
  • Badass Adorable: While Reiko is a capable wrestler, she is seen asking her deceased mom to watch over her and she is a fangirl of Aisha.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Trailers for Rumble Roses XX has Reiko pull this in a manner that would do "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, The Rock or John Cena proud.
  • Damsel in Distress: Odd example, as Reiko is the main character in the game, but most marketing/official art depicts her in this way, from losing to Dixie in trailers, to being kidnapped by Anesthesia. Most of the time, it's either Dixie or Noble Rose saving her.
  • Fangirl: Reiko is a big fan of Aisha's. Too bad Aisha treats her with disdain when they meet, believing that Dixie must have been "trippin" to be excited over Reiko and that Kamikaze Rose must have been spinning in her grave.
  • Friendly Rivalry: With Dixie.
  • Faux Action Girl: In the first game. While Reiko is considered the face of the company and has a strong reputation based on her heritage, outside of her own story mode, she is a young rookie who isn't very skilled (yet), and is extremely easy to defeat. Most American marketing shows Reiko losing to Dixie via submission/passing out as well. This changes in Rumble Roses XX, as by this point, Reiko is more experienced.
  • Meaningful Name: Her surname literally translates to "Player One" in Japanese. Also, "Rei" can mean "Zero", hence her wrestling moniker "Zero Fighter".
  • Momma's Boy: Frequently asks her mother in heaven to watch over her, and fights her matches and advances in her goals for her mother's sake.
  • My Hero, Zero: Her wrestling moniker is "Zero Fighter".
  • No Sympathy: Apparently, as we learn in Makoto and Evil Rose's storylines, Reiko's mother used to tell her that "there is no mercy in combat". This is played gently, however; it just means Reiko never holds back when she fights.
  • Panty Shot: Her hot pants are perpetually unzipped, revealing her panties' waistband.
  • Sexy Walk: Moreso than the other characters, Reiko is in full on model mode during her entrance, essentially using the entranceway as her runway.
  • To Be a Master: Reiko's goal is to be the greatest wrestler the world has ever seen, to make her mother in heaven proud of her.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Reiko has some of the lowest health/resistance in the game, and is considered weak by most of the roster. She can, however, do double moonsaults and a long variety of suplexes/holds, so she works around her negatives.
  • Who Wears Short Shorts?: Reiko's default wrestling outfit includes high-waisted red short shorts.

Dixie Clements

Voiced by: Yuko Kaida (Japanese), Lilia Silva (Rumble Roses), Jessica Straus (Rumble Roses XX) (English)

  • All-American Face: Her superstar gimmick.
  • Ass Kicks You:
    • In Rumble Roses XX, she has a move that can be performed on a downed foe in a corner which involves her slamming her ass into her opponent's face three times. She ends this by running off the opposite side ropes, and delivering a running butt slam.
    • As part of the Double X team move American Attack (when paired with Aisha), Dixie begins the move by running towards the opponent, turning around, and hitting them with her buttocks.
  • Big Damn Heroes: In Aisha's storyline, Aisha doesn't notice Lady X get back and attack after Aisha beats her, so Dixie charges into the ring and attacks Lady X.
  • Boobs of Steel: Dixie seems to have larger-than-usual breasts. Both Aigle and Candy Cane comment on them in their respective storylines.
  • Cowboy: Her gimmick.
  • Expy: Like Tina Armstrong, Dixie's a blonde, big breasted American wrestler who is one of the most predominant non-Asian females in the cast.
  • Fangirl: Dixie used to greatly look up to and admire Kamikaze Rose; now that Kamikaze Rose is dead, this is Dixie's motivation for her rivalry with Kamikaze Rose's daughter, Reiko.
  • Though Dixie either isn't aware of, or doesn't care about Kamikaze Rose's oldest daughter, who is also part of the division.
  • Friendly Rivalry: With Reiko.
  • Isn't It Ironic?: Her entrance song is "Yankee Rose", even though she's from the Deep South.note 
  • Only Sane Man: Acts very much like a professional wrestler, as opposed to most of the cast who seem to totally buy into the kayfabe.


Voiced by: Reiko Kiuchi (Japanese), Jessica Gee-George (Rumble Roses),note  Julie Ann Taylor (Rumble Roses XX) (English)

  • Big Damn Heroes: In Dixie's storyline, after Dixie beats Lady X the final boss, Lady X charges at Dixie as she is trying to catch her breath, but Aisha suddenly shows up and saves Dixie on the grounds that she wants nobody other than herself to take Dixie down.
  • Dark-Skinned Blond: As can be seen in her picture.
  • I Know Kung-Fu: She wears black MMA-style gloves, uses armbars, and the ground n' pound. In Rumble Roses XX, she adds mounted knees.
  • The Minnesota Fats: With Dixie. Unusually, it's not just because Dixie once defeated Aisha. As Aisha explains before their match in her storyline, it's also because Aisha was born poor and had to work her way up to wealth, while Dixie has always had money. Also, in Aisha's opinion, Dixie always "acted like the queen of high school."
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Her moves and appearance are blatantly inspired by several different pop starlets, with Beyoncé being the most obvious.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: Despite how mad Aisha is at Dixie, she actually saves Dixie in the latter's ending because she is going to be the one to take Dixie down.
  • Shaking the Rump: Both her regular and Superstar intro has this. Her tag introduction with Mistress also has this.
  • Unknown Rival: Aisha is one to Dixie; Dixie didn't have a clue "what she ever did to Aisha" until Aisha explained herself just before their match.

Makoto Aihara

Voiced by: Yui Horie (Japanese), Lisle Wilkerson (Rumble Roses), Carrie Savage (Rumble Roses XX) (English)

  • Badass Adorable: She's a judoka who treats every match as a learning experience.
  • Catchphrase: "Time to psych up! Fight!! Fight!! Fight!!" She says this twice: once at the beginning of her own storyline, and once in Reiko's storyline before Reiko and Makoto's match.
  • Genki Girl: She is always psyching herself.
  • Idol Singer: Her superstar gimmick.
  • The Minnesota Fats: With Aigle, but a much more mild example than Aisha with Dixie. Makoto does not hold a grudge against Aigle like Aisha does with Dixie; rather, Makoto thinks Aigle is strong because Aigle beat her before and Makoto wants to get strong enough to beat Aigle. They're rather civil to each other even before they become friends.
  • Panty Shot: In Rumble Roses, despite wearing shorts, her underwear is quite visible.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse:
    • While Makoto doesn't have power based attacks in her own arsenal, she can, due to the game's reversal mechanics, reverse the H-Move of a power based bigger girl that Makoto is usually the prime victim of and put them in the position.
    • When teaming with Aigle, who is the game's definition of pint sized powerhouse herself, they can perform the creatively named "Makoto and Aigle's Finishing Move". This attack sees both Makoto and Aigle lift their opponent up and drop the victim on her head. While Makoto does have assistance from Aigle in this instance, Makoto does hold her end of the attack quite well.
  • The Power of Friendship: Makoto believes in this. Her theory is that everyone has inner weaknesses they try to hide, but friends can help each other overcome them and become stronger. The power of friendship works in this example; it allows Makoto to break Aigle free of Anesthesia's brainwashing in her storyline, much to Anesthesia's disgust.
  • Weak, but Skilled: She's among the physically weakest of the girls in the game but she makes up for it by being an Olympic level judoka.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: She compliments Candy Cane and Reiko after beating them. Reiko has to tell Makoto to lay off the "Miss" stuff. She thinks all her matches are learning experience for her to grow stronger, whether she wins or loses. This is how she's able to break Aigle's brainwashing later on in her storyline, and Reiko is heavily taken aback in her storyline when Makoto shows up brainwashed by Anesthesia into being coldhearted.


Voiced by: Yuka Inokuchi (Japanese), Terry Osada (Rumble Roses), Sandy Fox (Rumble Roses XX) (English)

  • A-Cup Angst: Implied to have this before and after her match with Aisha. It is also implied that she has this before her match with Dixie.
  • Animal Motifs: Goats, her outfit has some fur and her Superstar outfit is literally her dressed as one (as much as you can be dressed in this kind of game). Her Super Star intro has her chasing one and only catching it when it gets to the ring.
  • Braids, Beads and Buckskins: Her outfit for the most part.
  • Hidden Depths: Though you only get to see them if you're playing as her. First of all, Aigle notices right off the bat that Evil Rose isn't really evil and comments that Evil Rose has a sad look like a "wounded wolf". Second of all, Aigle has the "heart of a hawk", which is how she's able to figure out that Anesthesia's offer to make her stronger was made with a "serpent's tongue." And finally, when Makoto gets brainwashed into the Black Belt Demon in Aigle's storyline, Aigle manages to break through the brainwashing. Suffice it to say, while Aigle isn't speaking in her native language, and thus unfairly comes across as a simpleton, she's definitely no idiot.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Aigle's usually pretty nice, but her reaction to the sight of Dixie's breasts is to exclaim that the cowgirl has "teats more magnificent than [her] sheep."
  • Male Gaze: Aigle looks at Aisha's body before and after their match. She also looks at and compliments Dixie's breasts before their match.
  • Meaningful Name: Even though she's Mongolian, Aigle is French for "Eagle".
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: In Makoto's storyline, Aigle promises not to lose and makes Makoto promise not to lose either so they can have their match later.
  • Real Men Love Jesus: Aigle always refers to the Great Father when she speaks.
  • Third-Person Person: Aigle refers to herself in the third person.
  • You No Take Candle: English/Japanese isn't Aigle's first language, since she's from Mongolia. Consequently, Aigle has problems with pronouns and contractions, thus unfairly making her sound like more of an airhead than she really is, in a manner similar to Shampoo. This was tone down in Rumble Roses XX, making it so that she only slips into this type of speaking on occasion.

Miss Muriel Spencer

Voiced by: Satsuki Yukino (Japanese), Rachel Walzer (Rumble Roses), Karen Strassman (Rumble Roses XX) (English)

  • Armor-Piercing Slap: All of her punch attacks open with one of these.
  • Badass Teacher: She prefers to stress the fact she's a teacher. The fact she can suplex people is just gravy as far as she's concerned. In her storyline, it turns out there's actually a reason why she's so good at suplexing despite being a teacher: it's because in her college days, before she became a teacher, she used to be captain of the wrestling team.
  • Beauty Mark: Has one near the left side of her lips.
  • Christmas Cake: She's 28 and single.
  • Hot Teacher: She's a beautiful woman whose primary occupation is that of a teacher.
  • Improbable Age: She's 28. It's said that, prior to being a teacher, she was the captain of her school's wrestling team, which explains how she carries her weight in the tournament.
  • Literal Ass-Kicking: Miss Spencer can literally target the rear end of her opponent with Atomic Drops to the tailbone for as long as she wants to, something unique to her in this Rumble Roses XX.
  • Meganekko: She wears a pair of glasses.
  • Misplaced Kindergarten Teacher: She joins the fray when seeking Candy Cane out.
  • Only Sane Man: With the exception of Dixie, she's pretty much the most level headed character in the cast, mainly by virtue of not giving a crap about the kayfabe the other characters take seriously.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Rumble Roses XX allows players to swap the introductions of the Roses, letting you have Becky perform Yasha's ninja entrance for example. Miss Spencer's Superstar entrance is hard coded to show Miss Spencer wearing her default outfit as part of the start despite who is actually performing it.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: She wears a skirt, stockings, knee-high boots, and knee pads.


Voiced by: Ai Orikasa (Japanese), Donna Burke (Rumble Roses), Wendee Lee (Rumble Roses XX) (English)

  • Absolute Cleavage: Thanks to her nurse's outfit.
  • Big Bad: And a non-spoiler example, since even in storylines where she first shows up as a friend offering an opportunity, such as in Makoto's storyline, Anesthesia's "offer" is heavily loaded with creepy undertones, and whichever girl the player is playing as is heavily creeped out by it. In Reiko's storyline, Anesthesia's first introduced as the bitch who brainwashed Reiko's sister. Also, as we learn in her own storyline, her "big plan" is to perfect Lady X as a weapon and radically alter the balance of global military power, but not as a "merchant of death" - it's not about the money, it's about a desire to fill this world with fear and suffering.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Considering she's a face, even though she makes no real attempt to hide her bitchiness.
  • Deal with the Devil: In most storylines other than hers, Anesthesia offers the girl in question an opportunity to become even stronger. They all refuse for different reasons; Makoto wants to get stronger through training and perseverance, Aisha finds Anesthesia creepy and wonders what her deal is, etc.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Anesthesia seems to have trouble comprehending that humans are capable of experiencing emotions other than the "jealousy, hatred, and humiliation" that she cites in her storyline's intro sequence. For example, when Reiko and Dixie act in a friendly manner after their match despite being huge rivals, Anesthesia's reaction is to wonder if they're going to hug, and then claim she's going to be sick. She has a similar "going to be sick" reaction when Aigle and Makoto act in a friendly manner despite being huge rivals. This also ends up derailing her plan if the player is playing a face storyline; typically Anesthesia brainwashes someone, but that someone is then snapped out of it by the power of friendship.
  • Hospital Hottie: She's beautiful woman who wears a nurse's outfit.
  • Light Is Not Good: The game designates her as a "face," but she's transparently evil from the get go.
  • Mad Doctor: She likes to experiment on other women.
  • Naughty Nurse Outfit: Her outfit has Absolute Cleavage.
  • Psycho Lesbian: She has some really blatant subtext for most of the cast, and a remark she makes about "Miss Walsh" (Candy Cane) has Miss Spencer rather understandably worried for her student's continued state of virtue.
  • Sexy Stewardess: Her superstar gimmick.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Anesthesia is the primary villain of the franchise. And this is the Face version of the character!
  • Underboobs: In her superstar outfit.
  • Wham Line: Minor example in Reiko's storyline when Reiko expresses a desire to make her mother "up there" proud of her: "UP...there? Hm? She could be DOWN there for all you know. Right next to your sister." It's sort of true; it turns out Lady X, the final boss, is a cyborg made from Reiko's mother's DNA.

    Default Characters: Heel 

Bloody Shadow/Benikage

Voiced by: Aki Sasaki (Japanese), Lenne Hardt (Rumble Roses), Jessica Gee-George (Rumble Roses XX) (English)

  • Dark Is Not Evil: She's only a heel because the game says so. She's no more evil, sinister, or even somewhat rude in her Bloody Shadow/Benikage persona than she is as Judgment/Yasha.
  • Dramatic Unmask: Type I example. After she begins fighting independently rather than for any organization, she tosses her mask away as a symbol of this and fights without it for the final few matches of her story.
  • Fragile Speedster: She has the highest movement speed of the division of all the human girls. However, despite her being on par with Reiko in terms of size and build, she's easily the most fragile. When she is hit, the opponent gains noticeably more Killer Move meter than against other opponents and it doesn't take much punishment from Lady X Subsistance before Benikage is down for the count.
  • Highly Visible Ninja: She's a ninja who's barely wearing anything at all.
  • I Work Alone: Due to a certain event that happens in Bloody Shadow's storyline, at the end she decides she owes allegiance to no entity at all, even refusing to team up with Noble Rose.
  • The Infiltration: Bloody Shadow isn't actually a heel; she's a member of an unidentified Japanese ministry and she's been sent to investigate the shenanigans going on behind the Rumble Roses tournament. This is not a spoiler, by the way, since it's the very first thing we hear from her narrative voice at the beginning of her story mode.
  • Mask of Power: With an oni mouth etched on it, no less.
  • Ninja: Her primary occupation.
  • Ninja Log: When she initiates a reversal.
  • Ninja Run: She does this and is the fastest running human in the game.
  • Not So Different: Bloody Shadow's storyline revolves around her investigating the brainwashing scheme that turns women into "puppets", but near the end, it turns out her boss has betrayed her and sold her to Anesthesia, like a "dog". This makes Bloody Shadow mad enough to turn into a "wolf", to use her metaphor, and scuttle Anesthesia's scheme anyway.
  • Only Sane Man: While Dixie is this in terms of personality and levelheadedness, Benikage is this through her training. She knows why the heel versions of the other Roses act the way they do, though she does have some confusion why Candy Cane/Becky are in the division.
  • Precision F-Strike: "You bitch, die"!
  • Spotting the Thread: Bloody Shadow is unique in that she can tell when someone's been brainwashed even before they start talking like the Hulk and ranting about killing people. How? It turns out anyone who's been brainwashed gets a tattoo near their breast, and since Bloody Shadow's a trained government agent, she can spot this in advance.
  • Vapor Wear: Her outfit leaves little to the imagination.

Evil Rose/Fujiko Hinomoto

Voiced by: Mitsuki Saiga (Japanese), Xanthe Smith (Rumble Roses), Mary Elizabeth McGlynn (Rumble Roses XX) (English)

Candy Cane/Rebecca Welsh

Voiced by: Hitomi Nabatame (Japanese), Peggy Woo (Rumble Roses), Kate Higgins (Rumble Roses XX) (English)

  • Ass Kicks You: Not as notable as Becky, but fitting for a heel Candy has a pinfall attempt that she simply sits on the lower chest of her opponent causing body damage, humiliation, and is a genuine pinfall attempt.
  • The Baby of the Bunch: She is often treated like this, despite not being so much younger than the rest of the division at 18. Anesthesia doesn't even seem interested in using her as a "donor" because of how under developed she is compared to the rest of the girls.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Due to her schoolgirl outfit.
  • Catholic School Girls Rule: She's a schoolgirl who wears a schoolgirl outfit.
  • Delinquents: She's a rude, defiant, punk rock schoolgirl.
  • Fiery Redhead: Due to her being a punk rock girl.
  • Girlish Pigtails: She sports red pigtails.
  • Glass Cannon: She is just as delicate as Becky in terms of her ability to take damage and lacks Becky's speed and agility but can end matches even faster than Miss Spencer using her infinite or Lady X Subsistance with her overpowered attacks with a specific sequence ending with her Guitar's Lethal Move.
  • Instrument of Murder: Can attack using her guitar.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She's fighting to raise money to save the orphanage in which she grew up. And yet, she's billed as a heel. Pretty much because of her confrontational nature. This is also because, out of pride, Candy Cane usually refrains from actually telling people that her goal is to save an orphanage. She tells Miss Spencer her goal after the former beats the latter in the former's storyline, but in other cases, such as when Makoto asks Candy Cane why she fights, Candy Cane rudely responds that she's only in it "for the money baby!"
  • Literal Ass-Kicking: She's the most notable example. Aside from one her taunts saying "I'm going to kick your ass", her lethal move in Rumble Roses starts with Candy Cane kneeing her opponent from behind, with her knee literally hitting between her opponent's glutes. In Rumble Roses XX, she has a different lethal attack that literally involves her grabbing the rear end of her opponent temporarily.
  • Male Gaze: Looks at and compliments Dixie's breasts before their match.
  • Pain In The Ass: As aforementioned, she literally kicks her opponent right between the glutes in Rumble Roses, but her XX Super Star incarnation gains the dreaded Atomic Drop, which visibly leaves the opponent tending to the area.
  • Riot Grrrl: She's a punk rock girl.

    Alternate Characters: Heel 

Rowdy Reiko (a.k.a. Queen Cobra)

Voiced by: Noriko Hidaka (Japanese), Bianca Allen (Rumble Roses), Michelle Ruff (Rumble Roses XX, Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence) (English)

  • Absolute Cleavage: Thanks to her biker outfit.
  • Biker Babe: A biker babe leader, no less.
  • Broken Bird: This version of Reiko became "Rowdy" because she never found out what happened to her sister, and nobody in Japan gave a damn about her until she found the "Road Warriors", who were all people with nowhere to go just like her.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Evil scars, in this case: one over her right eye.
  • Scarf Of Asskicking: She wears a white scarf around her neck.
  • She's Got Legs: Thanks to her being a biker.
  • That Man Is Dead: Rowdy Reiko now insists on being called "Queen Cobra" instead of "Reiko", and insists that both Sergeant Clements and Noble Rose have "got the wrong person."
  • Wooden Katanas Are Even Better: She uses a wooden sword.

Sgt. Clemets

Voiced by: Yuko Kaida (Japanese), Lilia Silva (Rumble Roses), Jessica Straus (Rumble Roses XX) (English)

  • Ass Kicks You: She has the same corner ring butt slam attack as her original incarnation.
  • Dirty Cop: Her heel persona.
  • Dirty Harriet: Possibly, considering that most heels play up on fetishes, and Dixie here is no exception to this rule.
  • Freudian Excuse: She became a "cop" precisely because that way she'd be the good guy no matter what she did, after the fans started booing her when she'd expected them to cheer. The "no matter what" part is what makes her a "crooked cop", and therefore a "heel".

Showbiz/Sista A

Voiced by: Reiko Kiuchi (Japanese), Jessica Gee-George (Rumble Roses), Julie Ann Taylor (Rumble Roses XX) (English)

  • Belly Dancer: Her superstar gimmick.
  • Dark-Skinned Blond: As can be seen in her picture.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: Her motivation. Aisha turned into "Showbiz" because her CD sales plummeted just because she liked to "bend the rules" a bit, and she never forgot her famous days with eyes on her dancing on a stage.
  • Underboobs: Thanks to her outfit.

The Black Belt Demon

Voiced by: Yui Horie (Japanese), Lisle Wilkerson (Rumble Roses), Carrie Savage (Rumble Roses XX) (English)

Killer Khan/Great Khan

Voiced by: Yuka Inokuchi (Japanese), Terry Osada (Rumble Roses), Sandy Fox (Rumble Roses XX) (English)

  • Dragon Lady: Complete with a qipao-styled dress.
  • Facial Markings: Wears white makeup and red facepaint.
  • In Name Only: Killer Khan is the ring name of an actual wrestler. This is subverted in that Aigle's fighting style (roughneck, sometimes with weapons) and nationality (Mongolian) are actually similar to the billing of the real life Killer Khan's. Hence, she was renamed Great Khan in Rumble Roses XX.
  • Kill It with Fire: Not a literal "kill" but more of a figurative. She can literally burn her opponent with her weapon based lethal move to leave them ready for the three count.
  • Large Ham: "ALL become SLAVE to KILLER KHAN!"
  • Third-Person Person: She refers to herself in the third person.

Mistress Spencer

Voiced by: Satsuki Yukino (Japanese), Rachel Walzer (Rumble Roses), Karen Strassman (Rumble Roses XX) (English)

Dr. Cutter/Dr. Anesthesia

Voiced by: Ai Orikasa (Japanese), Donna Burke (Rumble Roses), Wendee Lee (Rumble Roses XX) (English)

    Alternate Characters: Babyface 


Voiced by: Aki Sasaki (Japanese), Lenne Hardt (Rumble Roses), Jessica Gee-George (Rumble Roses XX) (English)

  • Fragile Speedster: Alongside her heel persona Benikage, Yasha has the fastest movement options just under Lady X Subsistence, but also can take much less punishment than the rest of the cast before she is ready for the three count.
  • Highly Visible Ninja: She's a ninja who's barely wearing anything at all.
  • Justice Will Prevail: She fights for honor and justice.
  • Leotard of Power: She wears a white and gold leotard.
  • Ninja Log: One of Judgement's special moves is to get German Suplexed only to disappear in a cloud of smoke and leave the opponent trying to pin a log. She karate chops them from behind while they're staring at the log in bafflement.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Not towards her but to her opponents. Yasha can make them fall for the same tricks each time. You would think that after the first two times her opponent would stop trying to German Suplex Yasha after Yasha just missed a high kick.
  • Vapor Wear: Her outfit leaves little to the imagination.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Moreso than even her heel alter ego, some of her strongest attacks depend on her opponent literally attempting offense on her and Yasha executes it perfectly each time.

Noble Rose/Fujiko Hinomoto

Voiced by: Mitsuki Saiga (Japanese), Xanthe Smith (Rumble Roses), Mary Elizabeth McGlynn (Rumble Roses XX) (English)

  • Absolute Cleavage: Thanks to her outfit.
  • Expy: Of Cutey Honey.
  • Boring, but Practical: Due to losing her benefits of Evil Rose, her moveset is in contention for the most bland in the game.
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: After losing the superhuman strength of her Evil Rose persona, she is actually rather unremarkable in terms of wrestling ability. She can take more hits than the frailer girls like Becky and Benikage, but doesn't have any of their advantages and in general struggles to defeat high health or high damage girls due to her own unremarkable moveset. She is literally just okay at everything.
  • Justice Will Prevail: After breaking free of her brainwashing, Noble Rose vows to stop Anesthesia.
  • Leotard of Power: She wears a black and white leotard.
  • Something About a Rose: She's known as Noble Rose.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has little purple hair.

Rebecca "Becky" Welsh

Voiced by: Hitomi Nabatame (Japanese), Peggy Woo (Rumble Roses), Kate Higgins (Rumble Roses XX) (English)

  • All Guys Want Cheerleaders: Her gimmick.
  • Animal Motifs: Her nickname is "The Rumble Bunny".
  • Ass Kicks You: A more subdued example, but Becky's lethal and killer moves end up with her sitting on top of her opponent. Also while not directly hitting when her opponent is slammed into the ground, her rear end is the means to apply her body weight to make the drop effect more effective.
  • Badass Adorable: Becky might be the biggest example of it in this game. She seems to be more concerned with putting on a good show than fanservice compared to most of the other girls. Her introduction is a showcase of her cheerleading skills and her SS introduction is even more flashy. If she wins a match that she took very high amounts of damage in she will ask the audience "Is everyone enjoying their view"? She even keeps with her cheerleader gimmick in match with her taunts such as "One Two You're All Through!". This is all after she potentially just wrestled a robot meant to take over the military and saved the world by defeating it.
  • Bare Your Midriff: This is justified due to her gimmick.
  • Boring, but Practical: Despite being a cheerleader, her moveset is more in line with actual wrestling and Becky is actually the closest the game has to a full luchadora. Since her transition from Candy Cane, Becky lost many of her crowd pleasing moves that spread the legs of her opponent or her flashy Guitar Attacks but instead uses huracanranas, suplexes, and other actual wrestling attacks.
  • Discard and Draw: From her change as the heel Candy Cane to the face Becky, Becky lost many of her cheating attacks alongside her Guitar that Candy started matches with and could even perform a very powerful Lethal attack with. Becky also loses much of the Humiliation factor Candy made her opponent a victim of. As a trade off, Becky becomes much faster in terms of running speed and footwork, gained actual wrestling attacks, acquired many attacks that end in pinfall attempts, and uses a more practical than embarrassing to the opponent H-Move that requires less effort from Becky herself to perform, but is much safer on her end at the same time.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Reverts back into her Candy Cane persona at the end of her storyline.
  • Genki Girl: Due to her being a cheerleader.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Sports a pair of blonde pigtails.
  • Fragile Speedster: She isn't as delicate or fast as Benikage, but Candy Cane was already on the frailer end of the Roses spectrum. As part of her moveset change from Candy Cane to Becky, she didn't get any more sturdy in that department but she lost her hard hitting guitar attacks and gained a lot more movement abilities. Effectively, she goes from being a Glass Cannon to this.
  • Pint Sized Power House: While notably taller than Makoto and Aigle, Becky is still on the smaller end of the division. Despite her high flying moveset, she still can side suplex girls who are bigger than her, alongside Sebastian the Clown who is taller and bulkier than Becky, the all steel built Lady X Subsistance and even an adult bear all without assistance.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl:
    • In the first game, Becky's softer compared to her Candy Cane persona and even uses words like "silly" and "dreamy" in her interview. She also wears flowers on her hair when she wears swimsuits.
    • In Rumble Roses XX, she was given a Tomboyness Upgrade. She loses Candy Cane's heart shaped pendant, loses a lot of the makeup, and uses her natural hair color and is more of a Tomboy with a Girly Streak. She even sounds more aggressive than Candy Cane despite being a face in the ring.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Becky isn't the biggest or the strongest in the division. She isn't even the best at submissions. She gets her mileage off her acrobatic high flying skills and reversals. In the original game, some of her attacks even involve her reversing her opponents attacks within her own grapple animations.
  • Who Wears Short Shorts?: Her swimsuit sees her wearing short shorts over her real bikini bottom, in Rumble Roses the shorts are even cut and expose her rear end more. They are just shorts in Rumble Roses XX, albeit still very short.

    Final Boss: Lady X 

Lady X Substance/Lady X Subsistence

  • All Your Powers Combined: She has all the best moves in the games.
  • Cybernetics Eat Your Soul: Thanks to being experimented on by Anesthesia.
  • Hoist Hero over Head: Substance and Subsistance do this. They lift their opponent who appears exhausted during the sequence despite how much damage they have actually taken, lift said opponent with one arm over their head, and proceed to spin their robotic joins while holding the opponent to spin the victim then toss them. While any Rose is a potential victim, this can apply if the victim is a face and is even more fitting if Reiko or Noble Rose are the victim.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: She's actually Kamikaze Rose, Reiko and Fujiko's Missing Mom. And it's when looking for her that Fujiko gets turned into Evil Rose.
  • One-Winged Angel: In the first game.
  • Ridiculously Human Robot: She's a cyborg.
  • Shout-Out: The Substance/Subsistence is reference to the Metal Gear series.

How well does it match the trope?
