Nicole Bass (Nicole Bass-Fuchs) 1999
  • Amazon Chaser: A somewhat twisted Real Life case. She filed a lawsuit against WWF and claimed she was sexually harassed by Steve Lombardi backstage. The suit was eventually dismissed however.
  • Arch-Enemy: Debra.
  • Brawn Hilda: A female bodybuilder, though not one of the typical Amazonian Beauty,variety.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: As a female bodybuilder, she was pretty strong.
  • Fan Disservice: She and Chyna participated in a bikini contest. Whether or not the disservice was intentional or not is up for debate.
  • The Dragon: Became the bodyguard to Sable following her 1999 heel turn.
  • Finishing Move: A chokeslam or a powerbomb.

Barbara Bush/B.B. (Katherine Dingman) 1999-2000

  • Arch-Enemy: For the short time she was there, Ivory.
  • Bigger Is Better: In hyping the Miss Royal Rumble Swimsuit Competition, she asked Lawler if he thought the fans might want to see a "bigger show."
  • Clothing Damage: This was part of her debut, though before she was officially named. Jacqueline had defeated Ivory in a "Gravy Bowl Match" with Miss Kitty as the referee on the 1999 Thanksgiving Episode of SmackDown!. Kitty had something lodged in her throat and BB came down to giver her the Heimlich maneuver. Ivory attacked BB, tore her top open, so she was there in her bra, and threw her into the gravy.
    • Ivory ripped BB's shirt off again that following Monday on Raw.
  • Emergency Services: Her gimmick was of an EMT.
  • Non-Action Girl: Other than her appearance in the Evening Gown in a Pool match at WWF Armageddon 99, she was not used in an in-ring capacity.
  • Only Known by Initials: She was first introduced as Barbara Bush, but from that point on she became known as BB.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Not her, but Bubba Ray Dudley used one to set up the above item. Edge and Christian had defeated the Dudleys, and Bubba acted like he was injured, which naturally brought out BB. Cue tablebomb.

Jazz (Carlene Denise Moore-Begnaud) 2001-2004, 2006-2007

Stacy Keibler (Stacy Ann-Marie Keibler) 2001-2006

Nidia (Nidia Guenard) 2001-2004
  • Action Girl: Though she was the only wrestler on Raw who was not a former champion, besides perhaps Stacy, who did not actually consider herself a wrestler.
  • Bigger Is Better: She thought she'd get a bigger push once her breasts were larger. Unfortunately, not really.
  • Chef of Iron: The good cook who happens to be a wrestler variety.
  • Combat Pragmatist: All the time, even as a Face she'd cheat right back if the opponent resorted to it and sometimes even preemptively.
  • Deep South: Her gimmick anyway.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: First when Torrie Wilson was chosen to pose in Playboy over her and she wasn't even allowed in the mansion to see Hugh Hefner by his security. Then when Jamie Knoble won the lottery and tried to pay Torrie to sleep with him.
  • Kayfabe: Appeared on a special WWE Tough Enough episode of the Reality Show Blind Date in October 2002 and stayed completely in character the whole time, going on about her storyline then-boyfriend Jamie Noble to the annoyance of her date.
  • Ms. Fanservice: The March 22, 2004 Raw featured the Draft Lottery, where she was switched from SmackDown! to Raw. She celebrated by removing her SmackDown! shirt, so she was momentarily on stage in her bra, and putting on a Raw shirt instead.
  • Pretty in Mink: After Noble went from Rags to Riches.
  • Spicy Latina: Subverted, when WWE paired this Texan/Puerto Rican up with Jamie Noble and billed her from a trailer in West Virginia. She showed some signs of it in occasional interview confrontations where she would briefly break into Spanish, then even moreso after she learned Noble had been taking advantage of her blind state.
  • Temporary Blindness: Thanks to Tajiri, as a way for her to be temporarily taken off of TV so she could get implants. See Bigger Is Better above.
  • Wrestling Family: Well, almost. Her sister was briefly in WWE's developmental promotion OVW under the name Nurse Lulu, but nothing came of it. Nidia herself was engaged to Kurt Angle's brother Eric when Eric was in OVW, but they split up for whatever reason.
  • Your Princess Is in Another Castle!: Defeated Molly Holly and Victoria in a Triple Threat #1 Contender Contract on a Pole Match on the July 5, 2004 Raw. Apparently, it wasn't a Money in the Bank-type situation where she'd get to decide when she wanted to cash in her shot since, Trish, the Champion at the time and who had been on commentary during the match due to an injury, came in and KOed Nidia with the cast on her hand and pinned her in 3 seconds.

Queen Sharmell (Sharmell Sullivan-Huffman) 2001, 2005-2007, 2013

Torrie Wilson (Torrie Anne Wilson) 2001-2008, 2009, 2018


     Debuted in the Ruthless Aggression Era (2002-2008) 

Brooke Adams (Brooke Nichole Adams) 2006-2007

Ariel (Shelly Leonor Martinez) 2006-2007
  • Absolute Cleavage: That top leaves almost nothing to the imagination.
  • Ambiguously Brown: She's Latina, but her heritage was never mentioned and began wearing makeup to appear pale once the vampire thing started.
  • Arch-Enemy: Kelly Kelly.
  • Cat Fight: Her debut match was an "Extreme Catfight" with Francine.
  • Fortune Teller: Was this until she became Kevin Thorn's valet.
  • For Halloween, I Am Going as Myself: She participated in a Halloween costume contest with Kelly Kelly and Trinity...wearing the same vampire getup that she always did. That combined with Kelly's Fetish Retardant CM Punk-tribute attire more or less guaranteed Trinity's victory.
  • Gag Boobs: She rivals Jillian Hall in this area.
  • Minidress of Power: Her trademark outfit.
  • Ms. Fanservice: If vampires are your thing.
  • Panty Shot: Short skirts and thongs were her stock and trade. One of the infamous moments of ECW December to Dismember 2006, besides the low quality of the overall show, was how due to the short skirt she was wearing during her tag team match with Kevin Thorn against Kelly Kelly and Mike Knox, the camera caught a lot of these.
  • Put on a Bus: Was released after getting into a backstage altercation with Batista.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: The New Breed was one strange bunch.
  • Power Stable: The New Breed.

Ashley (Ashley Marie Massaro) 2005-2008

Cherry (Kara Elizabeth Drew) 2007-2008
  • The '50s: The basis of her gimmick.
  • Arch-Enemy: Katie Lea in OVW, Maryse, who became the new valet of Deuce 'n Domino for a bit. She had feuds with Natalya, Maryse and Vickie Guerrero as well.
  • Armor-Piercing Slap: Delivered one to Maryse in a tag match, who hilariously oversold it. She also gave Natalya a few.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: On the recieving end of one from Natalya, tapping to the Sharpshooter in a few seconds.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: She has a pretty epic tan, as the image shows.
  • Disco Dan: She was the valet of Deuce 'n Domino, two Greaser-like characters who looked like they were from the 1950s. Her attire consisted of poodle skirts and roller blades.
  • Good Bad Girl: Implied. Deuce 'n' Domino saw her emerge from a closet in the hallway... and then, seconds later, Ric Flair emerged from the closet as well!
  • Edible Theme Naming: Her ring name along with her finisher, a Hammerlock DDT called the Cherry Pop Drop.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Deuce 'n Domino replaced her with Maryse, forcing her to go out on her own.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Participated in a swimsuit contest in 2008 (albeit somewhat reluctantly) as well as a "wet 'n' wild" match on SmackDown with Michelle McCool, Maryse and Victoria.
  • Odd Friendship: With Michelle McCool, her frequent manager and tag partner.
  • Panty Shot: Inevitable given that she frequently wore poodle skirts.
  • Parts Unknown: From "the other side of the tracks".
  • Put on a Bus: She was released in August of 2008 due to "budget cuts". There was a long-standing rumor that WWE fired her for gaining a little weight, but she eventually denied those claims in a shoot interview.
  • Shrinking Violet: Her shtick since splitting from Deuce 'N' Domino was being a scared, timid punching bag for the heel Divas on SmackDown. She eventually built her confidence up and even got a few wins against the likes of Victoria.
  • Unrelated Siblings: Cherry and Domino.

Francine (Francine Fournier) 2006

Miss Jackie Gayda (Jacquelyn Gayda-Haas) 2002-2005, 2009
  • Arch-Enemy: Dawn Marie, as, in late 2004, Dawn was suggesting that she and Charlie Haas were having an affair. (Doubles as hilarious since Jackie and Haas are married in real life now.)
  • Expy: Of Miss Linda, the valet for "Exotic" Adrian Street, when she was with Rico.
  • Finishing Move: Somersault neckbreaker.
  • Humiliation Conga: She got a well-deserved one at WrestleMania XX in 2004. She and Stacy Keibler were booked to face Torrie Wilson and Sable in a Playboy Evening Gown Match; unlike more traditional Evening Gown Matches, this one would begin with the participants willingly removing their gowns and wrestling the match under normal rules in their underwear. Sable, Stacy, and Torrie all obligingly removed their high-heeled shoes and gowns, but Jackie played the role of a shameless cock-tease by slowly taking off each of her shoes....and then slipping back through the ring ropes and trying to leave the arena. Sable and Torrie weren't about to let this happen, though: Sable grabbed Miss Jackie and threw her back into the ring, and she and Torrie proceeded to tear off her white gown and matching long gloves to leave her in her lacy white undies. Then Torrie rolled Jackie up in a pin to win the match for her team, continuing to hold Jackie in the pin for several seconds with her butt pointing up into the air. Then Torrie delivered a spank to Jackie's upper thigh, which was bared by her skimpy white panties. And then Torrie grabbed Jackie's panties and yanked them down (or rather up, since Jackie was basically sitting on her head), exposing her butt crack to the entire world. Only then did Torrie release Miss Jackie from the hold, and the poor lovely hastily covered her coin slot and fled the arena sobbing in humiliation. Oh, and this all happened in front of a crowd of 20,000 at Madison Square Garden in New York City - the single most famous forum for professional wrestling in all of world history? It just doesn't get more mortifying than that. (And, just to top things off, Miss Jackie was a Face when this all happened and remained a Face even afterward, which does make what happened to her seem rather unfair.)
  • I Have Boobs, You Must Obey!: Flashed Rob Conway, with her back to the camera, during the Rico-Rob Conway (w/Rene Dupree) match on the January 26, 2004 Raw, leading to Rico winning the match. During the postmatch replay, Lawler was so flustered he mixed up the names of La Resistance.note 
  • Ms. Fanservice: To help Rico and Charlie Haas, she was glad to be.
  • Power Stable: (in OVW): The Revolution
  • The Bus Came Back: Participated in the Miss WrestleMania Battle Royal at WrestleMania 25.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Took Billy Kidman's BK Bomb on the October 7, 2004 SmackDown! and got shoved down by Heidenreich on the November 4th show.

Joy Giovanni 2004-2005, 2009
  • Arch-Enemy: Amy Weber would probably be the biggest. She also had brief feuds with Torrie Wilson, Dawn Marie and Melina.
  • “Awesome McCool” Name: You must admit, it's fun to say.
  • Cat Fight: Got into one with Amy Weber.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Like most Diva Search participants. She participated in a bikini contest against Torrie Wilson and was fond of shaking her assets for the fans.
  • Put on a Bus: Released in 2005 due to "budget cuts".
  • The Bus Came Back: Participated in the Miss WrestleMania Battle Royal at WrestleMania 25.
  • Would Hit a Girl: She served as Big Show's on-screen girlfriend and ended up being targeted by Show's opponent JBL.

Layla (Layla El-Young) 2006-2015

Dawn Marie (Dawn Marie Psaltis) 2002-2005

Kristal Marshall 2005-2007
  • Action Girl: She had some believable victories over Jillian(before her jobber period, that is) not long after coming in on Smackdown. On the other hand, this lead Kristal to feud with Ashley, whom she believed herself to be more talented than.
  • Beauty Contest: She was a beauty queen and a model before joining the company.
  • But Not Too Black: She had light hair and was fairly light-skinned.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: She had blonde hair for a brief period.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Toward Ashley Massaro after she lost the diva search, setting up a Face–Heel Turn in the process.
  • May–December Romance: With Theodore Long, with the two set to have a Kayfabe wedding, only for Teddy to have a Kayfabe heart attack during it.
  • Meganekko: She wore glasses at times.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She participated in many bikini contests and even the odd bra-and-panties match.
  • Put on a Bus: Kristal was quietly released after the Teddy Long incident.

Maryse (Maryse Mizanin, née Ouellet) 2006-2011, 2016-

Michelle McCool (Michelle Leigh Callaway, née McCool) 2004-2011, 2018

Candice Michelle (Candice Michelle Beckman-Ehrlich) 2004–2009

Beth Phoenix (Elizabeth Kocanski Copeland. neé Carolan) 2006-2012, 2018, 2019-

Shaniqua (Linda Miles) 2002-2004
  • Abhorrent Admirer: Teased with Benoit.
  • Amazonian Beauty: She was considered ugly by some but most, especially the wrestlers she managed and Tazz, thought she was fine.
  • Dominatrix: While managing the Bashams, she even had a whip (but not of the bullwhip variety).
  • The Giant: Though she's most known for managing Shelton Benjamin and the Basham Bros this was how she was in the ring when she started on SmackDown and was beating up Torrie Wilson, Dawn Marie, Nidia and Scotty 2 Hotty. Turned around on her against Rikishi.
  • Statuesque Stunner: She was the tallest woman on Smackdown and was the second tallest woman to be on the main roster after Nicole Bass.
  • Voodoo Shark: She was "mistaken" for Shelton Benjamin, attacked by Bradshaw and removed from WWE television. The logical conclusion was to sell the injury she got even though WWE really took her off to get a boob job. When she returned WWE insisted on drawing attention to them by claiming it was due to swelling caused by Bradshaw's attack, which was so unconvincing it killed all the heat fans gave to the APA/Basham feud and lead to Shaniqua's release not long after. Worse, the increase wasn't as drastic as others in the past, like General Manager Stephanie McMahon's!
  • We Used to Be Friends: To Shelton Benjamin when she moved on to the Bashams and he was in the world's greatest tag team and Jackie Gayda, who betrayed her for Ivory and Molly Holly.
  • Weapon of Choice: The "Magic Stick"

Eve Torres (Eve Torres Gracie, born Eve Marie Torres) 2007-2013

Trinity (Stephanie Finochio) 2006-2007
  • Amazonian Beauty: Claimed to have the best biceps in the business, and they were pretty impressive.
  • I Have the High Ground: Relied on the turnbuckle for a good deal of her offense, particularly her finishing move, fall from grace.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She was "dressing" in police tape before Orlando Jordan made it (in)famous...though she never did it quite to the extent he did and mostly limited it to photo shoots. She even won a costume contest for it, and considering that she was against Kelly Kelly, that's saying something.
  • Power Stable: Managed The Full Blooded Italians.
  • Retired Badass: Retired to focus on her stunt work.
  • Signature Move: A standing shooting star press.
  • Wrestling Doesn't Pay: A wrestling stunt woman, this was not just a gimmick either, she really worked in both professions at once, being a stunt double for the likes of Jennifer Garner.

Krissy Vaine (Kristin Eubanks) 2007

Amy Weber (Amy Marie Weber) 2004-2005
  • Arch-Enemy: Joy Giovanni.
  • Catfight: Got into one with Joy.
  • Heel: JBL's "Image Consultant."
  • Ms. Fanservice: Typical of Diva Search girls.
  • Non Action Girl: Managed JBL and only wrestled once, defeating Joy by forfeit.
  • Power Stable: The Cabinet, led by JBL.
  • Put on a Bus: She requested her release in February 2005 because she was unsatisfied with the pay and was allegedly sexually harassed backstage. She compared the locker room to a "frat house".
  • Sexy Secretary: Dressed as this while part of The Cabinet.

Lena Yada 2007-2008
  • Alpha Bitch: Turned heel in ECW and joined forces with Layla to beat up Kelly Kelly.
  • Ms. Fanservice: A former model.
  • Neutral Female: The first and only match thst she did have was a tag match that she was never tagged in for.
  • Ninja: Dressed as one for a costume contest at Cyber Sunday 2008.
  • Non Action Girl: Competed in the 2007 Diva Search contest. Once hired, she mostly served as a backstage interviewer and valet. Once she finally did have a match (which was a tag match that she was never tagged in to), she was subsequently let go.
  • Put on a Bus: Was released at the end of 2008, shortly after her in-ring debut, which was a tag match that she was never tagged in to.

Sonya Deville (Daria Berenato) 2017-
  • Badass Gay: WWE's second openly gay wrestler (after Darren Young) and she's a badass MMA fighter, both in and out of Kayfabe.
  • Blood Knight: Agrees to join Peyton Royce and Billie Key against Ember Moon, Liv Morgan, and Aliyah since it means she gets a chance to beat people up. Naturally, she's the one who ate the pinfall.
  • Braids of Action: Typically has her hair in either this, a Tomboyish Ponytail, or a combo of the two, which goes with her professional MMA fighter gimmick.
  • Catch-Phrase: "Put your hair up and square up".
  • The Gloves Come Off: When she has an opponent on the ropes or gets pissed she takes off her gloves and unloads punches.
  • I Know Karate: She's a trained MMA fighter.
    • Kayfabe: Although she does have some respectable training, the company tries its best to not bring up Sonya's actual fight record, which is 2-1.
  • Paper Tiger: Her first few appearances on NXT TV had her being defeated rather easily despite her MMA background. Averted once she took a hiatus, changed her name and came back, becoming a full-on Wrestling Monster.
  • Revenge: After Peyton and Billie abandoned her in their match against Ember, Liv, and Aliyah, she attempted to get even with a match against Billie, but Peyton interfered and Daria lost.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Sonya (the tough MMA fighter) is the tomboy to pretty blonde Mandy Rose's girly girl.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: Typically has her hair in either this, Braids of Action, or a combo of the two, which goes with her professional MMA fighter gimmick.

Lacey Evans (Macey Estrella) 2019-
  • Action Mom: She has one daughter.
  • Alpha Bitch: She claims to be on a mission to bring "class" back to the women's division, which seems to consist of nothing but her acting like this.
  • Anachronism Stew: The style of her attire is straight out of the 40's or 50's, and her theme song has a 90's sound to it.
  • Arch-Enemy: Becky Lynch
  • Boring, but Practical: In a universe that runs on Serial Escalation, Evans (despite having more impressive capabilities in her own arsenal) opts to end matches by simply punching her opponent in the face really hard.
  • Eagleland: Her outfits and demeanor invokes Type 1, although in late 2017-2018 she turned heel and edged much closer to Type 2.
  • Interrupting Meme: Since moving up from NXT, her randomly showing up during matches and in-ring segments (and doing pretty much nothing else) has become one of her defining features. Finally changed it up the night after Wrestlemania 35 by socking Becky Lynch in the jaw.
  • One-Hit KO: "The Woman's Right", which is basically punching her opponent in the face really hard.
  • Red Baron: "The Lady of NXT".
  • Semper Fi: Was a U.S. Marine in real life before becoming a professional wrestler.
  • Southern Belle: Billed from South Carolina and her ring gear and persona has elements of this.
  • Statuesque Stunner: She's 5'8.

Mandy Rose (Amanda Saccomanno) 2017-
  • Amazonian Beauty: She's a former bodybuilder and fitness model.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: By way of tanning.
  • Identical Stranger: She bears more than a passing resemblance to Trish Stratus, particularly during Trish's early years when she was more bulky, to the point that it was referenced by WWE itself, and Trish herself didn't disagree. Both were also fitness models before becoming wrestlers.
  • Kick Chick: One of her Signature Moves is a running bicycle kick, though it looks more like a knee strike than a kick.
  • Spiritual Successor: Despite her resemblance to Trish Stratus, more than a few fans have called her "a better version of Eva Marie." Both women are former models who came into WWE through reality shows (Eva through Total Divas, Mandy through WWE Tough Enough). The reason why Mandy is the "better" version is because, unlike Eva, who was put on the main roster almost immediately with minimal training and subsequently became one of the most hated wrestlers in the company, she spent a year training and working NXT house shows before her TV debut, and her ring work is at least passable. The fact that she and Eva were quite friendly with each other on Total Divas, she debuted shortly after Eva was called up, and Corey Graves' first reaction to her, only heighten the comparison.
    Corey Graves: I'll tell you what, at this point Mandy Rose is runner up to only one thing in my life: Eva Marie. Beyond that, that's it.
    Tom Phillips: Oh no.
  • The Runner-Up Takes It All: Mandy was the runner-up on the female side of the 2015 version of Tough Enough. The winner, Sara Lee, was released before she could appear on TV.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Mandy is a pretty blonde (and former fitness model) who plays the girly girl to Sonya's tomboy.

Ronda Rousey (Ronda Jean Rousey) 2018-

Peyton Royce (Cassie McIntosh) 2018-
  • Amazonian Beauty: Mostly in the abs.
  • Ambiguously Bi: Come on, even the IIconics entrance graphics are in the bi pride flag colors.
  • Beta Bitch: To Billie Kay. She was however able to get a win in a #1 contender's match and challenge Asuka on her own - even if she didn't win.
  • Dance Battler: Her graceful movements give away that she was a dancer before becoming a wrestler.
  • Flower in Her Hair: Flowers have recently become a part of her motif.
  • Green and Mean: She's taken to wearing green attires and she definitely has an attitude.
  • Jobber: Was initially this under her real first name Cassie, but she's picked up a few wins since then.
  • Kick Chick: Depending on how much offense she gets in, it's possible for her to go through a match doing nothing but kicks.
  • Kick the Dog: She and Billie taunted Liv Morgan following a Curb-Stomp Battle she suffered at the hands of Asuka.
  • Land Down Under: Where she and Billie both grew up, attended the same high school, as well as first trained together.
  • Red Baron: "The Venus Flytrap of NXT"
  • Redhead In Green: Well, more of a burgundy shade.
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: Although some fans think the heterosexual part is supposed to be ambiguous, Peyton and Billie are 100% loyal to each other and have sworn never to betray the other even though they are heels. Even in a Fatal Four Way for the NXT Women's Championship they never turned on each other, instead trying to help the other get a pin or submission.
  • Secondary Color Nemesis: She spent a lot of the Iconic Duo's run in NXT wearing light green ring gear with purple accents. Once they got to the main roster, she upgraded purple to the main color and started adding aqua accents instead.
  • Suplex Finisher: She's been using a Fisherman's Suplex as of late.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Tends to go to pieces if an opponent starts kicking out or no selling her offense, despite this meaning she's still got the momentum. In one match Asuka kicking out after a two count reduced her to a screaming tantrum and some weak shoves, after which Asuka predictably recovered and flattened her.
  • Whole Costume Reference: The overall motif seems to be a reference of some portrayals of Poison Ivy. Liv lampshaded this on Twitter, referring to Peyton as "a chick who thinks she's Poison Ivy".
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has purple in her hair.

Kairi Sane (Kaori Housako) 2019-
  • Arch-Enemy: Shayna Baszler, a rivalry that began since the Mae Young Classic in 2017 in which Kairi defeated Shayna in the Finals. When Baszler debuted at NXT, the first thing she did was attacked Kairi from behind. In February 2018, the two had a match in which Shayna won. Fast forward a few months later, Shayna is the reigning NXT Women's Championship and belittled Kairi for not accomplishing anything since the Mae Young Classic. For the latter half of 2018, the two continue their rivalry with the NXT Women's Championship on the line, with Kairi winning it on NXT TakeOver Brookyln IV but dropping it a few months later at Evolution and failing to reclaim it at TakeOver WarGames II. The feud intensifies when Shayna brought in her MMA buddies to interfere in their matches while Kairi is aided by Io Shirai and Dakota Kai.
  • Badass Adorable: Her cute face belies a ferocious competitor who's not to be taken lightly.
  • Bash Brothers: Most recently, she's been paired witb Asuka as a tag team.
  • Finishing Move: A diving elbow drop known as the "Insane Elbow". She also uses a Cross-Legged Boston Crab known as "The Anchor".
  • I Have the High Ground: The height she gets on her "Insane Elbow" has to be seen to be believed.
  • Meaningful Name: Her in-ring name 'Kairi' means "ocean village", derived from the Japanese 'kai' for "sea/ocean" - perfect for a Pirate Princess.
  • Nice Hat: A snazzy-looking tricorn.
  • Older Than They Look: Look at that face. Would you believe for a second that she's 30?
  • Pintsized Powerhouse: She may be a rather short woman, but her elbow drop is absolutely deadly.
  • Pirate Girl: Her entrance gear evokes a pirate captain's outfit.
  • Red Baron: "The Pirate Princess".
  • Signature Move: The Sliding D, a sliding elbow strike to a cornered opponent. The Interceptor, a striking Spear.
  • Sky Pirate: When teaming with the "Genius of the Sky" Io Shirai, they are called the "Sky Pirates"
  • Tournament Arc: Debuted during the inaugural Mae Young Classic (2017) and was its first winner.
