Roxy (ロキシー Rokishī ) is a character from the Final Fight series of beat 'em up, appearing as a member of the Mad Gear Gang. She and Poison are palette swaps of each other. Unlike Poison, who have made several appearences since her debut, Roxy only appears in the first game of the series and at some of its later versions.
Roxy appears very similar to Poison in design, the former has orange hair however instead of Poison's trademark pink color. She wears a black peak cap, a midriff-revealing tanktop, black high-heeled shoes, cutoff red jean shorts and, like Poison, carries around a pair of handcuffs.
In her Street Fighter V profile artwork, Roxy has a red vest and a lacy white band around her left leg. She is shown carrying a metal baseball bat.
Not much is known about Roxy's personality, but she said to have a characteristically husky voice, possibly implying she has a seductive or bewitching demeanor most of the time. Referred to as "the flower of the Mad Gear Gang", she is one of the few female members of the gang, and enjoys wasting money. She looks up to Poison, who was raised in the same orphanage as her.
Like Poison, not much is known about Roxy's background, as she prefers not to speak about it. She was raised in the same Los Angeles orphanage as Poison was, and the two eventually made her way to Metro City, joining up with the Mad Gear Gang.
Final Fight Edit
Roxy appears as a common enemy in Final Fight, working as a member of the Mad Gear Gang during Belger's attempt to retain his control over Metro City from newly elected Mayor Mike Haggar. She often appears alongside Poison, confronting Haggar, Cody, and Guy as they attempt to rescue Haggar's daughter, Jessica.
- Roxy is named after the English rock band Roxy Music.
- Like Poison, Roxy was initially planned to be a cisgender woman, but was changed to a transsexual female in Final Fight due to the suggestion that "hitting women was considered rude" in America and the concern that feminist groups would sue. Despite this, on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System port of Final Fight, the issue was avoided altogether, replacing Roxy with a male character named Sid. In later media relating to the characters, while Poison's status as transgender is left ambiguous, Roxy is considered to be cisgender.
