- Strider Hiryu
- Grandmaster Meio
- Strider Hien - He became jealous of Hiryu's success and god-like status as he was the youngest ever to become a Super A-Class Strider. Seeking revenge, he offered his services to Grandmaster Meio and assisted him in wiping the Striders out. Hiryu fights against Hien twice during the course of the game, and he is an unlockable character in the PlayStation version. His weapon is a double-sided Cypher, since either side of the weapon can be thrown at his enemy like a boomerang. In his boss form, he's only vulnerable once he does this. Strider Hien ultimately is defeated, but tells Strider Hiryu the truth and goes to the cliffs to see the sunset.
In Strider 2, the player takes control of a Super A Ranked Strider code named Hiryu who wields a deadly plasma-ejecting cypher named the Falchion, completing missions assigned to you. There are four starting selectable missions and a fifth is unlocked by completing them. Defeating the fifth mission unlocks the final boss mission where Hiryu will have to face off with powerful bosses which includes the rogue Strider Hien, Grandmaster Meio and a bioweapon named Caduceus. By completing all the missions, the player will unlock Strider Hien, who wields two ranged cyphers, as a playable character.
There are also special unlockable and powerful skills which will ease the player on their mission. Included are the Savage Slash (Midare-Giri in Japanese), Hassou Jump, Boost (unlimited if the game is beaten using Hien), and rapid slash.
- Strider Hiryu, Strider Hien and Grandmaster Meio all appeared in the crossover strategy-RPG game Namco ✕ Capcom.
- The Marvel Vs. Capcom version of Strider are modified sprites from Strider 2. Most of the Strider 2 sprite work was done during development.
