Jessica (ジェシカ・ハガー Jeshika?), also known by her full name Jessica Haggar (ジェシカ・ハガー Jeshika Hagā?), is a non-playable supporting character from the Final Fight series of beat 'em up games. She is the young daughter of Mayor Mike Haggar and the former girlfriend of Cody. Her kidnapping by the Mad Gear Gang triggers the events of the first game. Although not a major character, she has made several subsequent cameo appearances with both her father and her boyfriend.



A young woman with long blonde hair, she wears a tight, red strapless dress with a sweetheart neckline and matching red pumps.


In Final Fight, Jessica is kidnapped by the Mad Gear in order to coerce her father Mike Haggar, the Mayor of Metro City, to relinquish his campaign against crime and corruption. Instead of submitting to the gang's demands, Haggar sets out to vanquish the gang and save her with the help of her boyfriend Cody and his training partner Guy and is rescued at the end.

She would make several cameo appearances through many subsequent games after the original Final Fight. In Final Fight 2, she can be seen in a photograph with Cody, Haggar, and Guy at the beginning of the game. The game's opening intro states that she is taking a vacation with Cody during the present events of the story.

In the Slam Masters series of wrestling games, Jessica appears whenever her father Haggar wins a match, in which she walks up to the ring to celebrate with her father. Although, the international versions of the Slam Masters games established the series to be set after the events of Final Fight, the Japanese versions (titled Muscle Bomber) actually established the series as a prequel to the events of Final Fight, with Haggar beginning his campaign for Mayor. In an anecdotal back-story to the game, Haggar once fought Lucky Colt (the character known as Gunloc in the English versions) for trying to hit on Jessica (this was before she began dating her childhood friend Cody in Final Fight).[1]

In Street Fighter Alpha 2, Jessica can be seen cuddling her boyfriend Cody in the background of Guy's Metro City stage. Whenever Cody decides to shift his attention from Jessica to another female fighter, a jealous Jessica will slap Cody in the face to get back his attention.

Final Fight Revenge (which is chronologically set between Final Fight and Street Fighter Alpha 3) would center around Haggar and Cody's search for Jessica after her disappearance during a string of riots that occured in Metro City following the defeat of the Mad Gear Gang, her whereabouts are never resolved however in the game's endings. The Street Fighter Zero 3 Secret File Book would later establish that Haggar was able to rescue his daughter from danger, leading to Jessica's departure to Europe from within the events of Street Fighter Alpha 3.

In Street Fighter Alpha 3, Cody and Jessica ended their relationship after Cody got involved in too many street fights and was subsequently arrested for aggravated assault. Not much is mentioned about Jessica in the game's back-story, other than she has left Metro City to study abroad in Europe.[2]

Trivia Edit

  • In Final Fight: Guy, the second SNES version of Final Fight (which featured Guy in the place of Cody), it is shown that Jessica considers Guy a close friend.
  • Jessica is modeled after Diane Lane's role as Ellen Aim from the 1984 action movie, Streets of Fire. Like Ellen, Jessica was kidnapped by a street gang and Cody had to rescue her, which is a reference to the movie.
  • During the opening of the Japanese version of Final Fight, her bra was shown.
