Cammy White (キャミィ・ホワイト Kyamī Howaito?), also known by the codename Killer Bee (キラービー Kirā Bī?) in Street Fighter Alpha 3, is a character in the Street Fighter series. She first appeared in the fighting game Super Street Fighter II, which was released in 1993, as one of the "New Challengers", out of the four new characters introduced in that title. Cammy is the second female character in the Street Fighter series, following Chun-Li.
Out of the four "New Challengers," Cammy is by far the most prominent, having many more game appearances than the others, as well as more appearances in games and other media than many of the original "World Warriors." Along with Chun-Li, Cammy's considered one of the deadly damsels of the Street Fighter universe, her popularity quickly making her one of the most famous characters, because of her attractive and slender figure along with her strong personality and fighting skills.
Cammy has undergone many changes over her video game career. In Super Street Fighter II, and Super Street Fighter II Turbo, Cammy wore a green thong leotard and was a member of a British special forces team known as Delta Red. This classic incarnation is known as "Delta Red Cammy."
In the later games X-Men vs. Street Fighter and Street Fighter Alpha 2 Gold (Cammy is a secret character in the latter), she had a light blue leotard that resembled a big turtleneck sweater with shoulder pads and a win pose that showed her saluting the sinister M. Bison. This rendering of Cammy is the younger version featured in the prequel story line of Street Fighter Alpha, detailing the time when she was affiliated with the criminal syndicate known as Shadaloo. Therefore, this version of Cammy is known as "Shadaloo Cammy", or "Doll Cammy". She is also referred to by her codename, "Killer Bee."
Since Shadaloo Cammy didn't have a storyline in Street Fighter Alpha 2 Gold (until the re-release version of the arcade port in Street Fighter Alpha Anthology for the PS2; in SFA2 Gold she was only playable in the VS. and Training modes), and X-Men vs. Street Fighter is not considered a true part of the Street Fighter storyline, the Killer Bee's only canonical appearance is Street Fighter Alpha 3.
Shadaloo Cammy also appeared as a playable character in Marvel vs. Capcom 2, Capcom vs. SNK, and Capcom vs. SNK 2, and made appearances in the endings of certain Street Fighter III 3rd Strike characters. Since the Shadaloo Cammy sprite was designed more recently than the Delta Red Cammy sprite, the former was larger and more detailed, therefore making it an obvious choice to use in other games; the sprite was also recycled in a similar fashion for use in the non-canon Capcom vs. SNK series. The most blatantly anachronistic appearance is in the 3rd Strike endings, where there was no reason to portray Shadaloo Cammy in a time far beyond Street Fighter Alpha 3, because in this appearance she is rendered in a drawing, rather than a re-used sprite. It seems it was done purely as a joke.
In the futuristic 3D shooter Cannon Spike, Cammy is depicted as Delta Red for player 1, and Shadaloo for player 2.
Therefore, although the "Delta Red Cammy" appeared first, "Shadaloo Cammy" predates the Delta Red version in the Street Fighter canon (besides having more in-game appearances).
Cammy has blue eyes, unusually long blonde platted pigtails with a small forelock, and a scar on her left cheek.
In Super Street Fighter II and Super Street Fighter II Turbo, Cammy wore a green thong leotard and a Delta Red triangle insignia on either the right or left breast (some promo art has it on the right while other instances, including her endings in SSFII, have it on the left), a red beret, black combat boots, and red gauntlets. Her legs were sparsely decorated with green camouflage paint. This classic incarnation is known as "Delta Red Cammy."
In Cannon Spike, Cammy is 21 years old and wearing an outfit similar to her SSFII incarnation, except she has kneepads and inline skates, as well as two sub-machine guns. In her right hand, she holds a standard Uzi sub-machine gun, and in her left, a Skorpion vz. 61. Both guns are depicted in a comically larger size than their real counterparts.
In X-Men vs. Street Fighter, Street Fighter Alpha 2 Gold, and every subsequent game in which she appeared, Cammy wore a blue thong leotard with an open back and a small yellow tie attached to the front, a small blue garrison cap, pointed brown boots, and red gauntlets similar to her classic incarnation. Her legs were lightly adorned with a blue lightning bolt design. This version of Cammy is the "Killer Bee" or "Shadaloo" persona. This uniform is a lighter version of the Shadaloo Doll uniform, and swaps the standard tights for the bare legged, lightning bolt design. The lightning bolts could be symbolic of speed; they are often given to real world military forces, known for conducting raids. This was probably adoptive of lightning bolt symbols that were used in the Roman empire.
Shadaloo Cammy's pre-fight intro has her wearing an over sized red cloak (the same seen in Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie), which she quickly discards, revealing her previously hidden identity.
In the (non-canon) anime prequel series Street Fighter II V, Cammy's character design and persona are radically different compared to any other appearances. However, her blunt, serious personality is similar to her original design. Her hair is styled in a high ponytail instead of the braids, but she is seen in her original pigtails in a photograph in episode 17. She wears a black leather tank top, matching black leather tights, and a choker decorated with a crucifix, the latter which she used to conceal a deadly garotte to assassinate her victims. In the series, she usually works as a contract assassin.
Cammy makes an appearance in Final Fight: Streetwise, as an opponent in pit fighting in Japan town. Her attire reflects the game's urban aesthetics while retaining her trademark pigtails and red cap. In this game she sports a sleeveless sweater top, silver and red gauntlets, and baggy fatigued cargo pants that sag slightly.
In Street Fighter IV, Cammy appears in her classic Delta Red attire. Her alternate attire, available as DLC, resembles her Killer Bee attire with key differences. The top is a padded, collared jacket with a Delta Red symbol of its chest. Cammy has matching hat and long boots as well, and retains her signature gauntlets. She appears to at least still be wearing her thong leotard under the jacket while her legs are still painted with fatigue strips. Her third Super Street Fighter IV alternate costume resemble M. Bison's attire and her new alternate costume is resembling DC Comics character Catwoman's suit with military touches.
In the SSFIV OVA, she wears her Delta Gear, though her gauntlets are dark blue instead of apple red.
In Street Fighter X Tekken, Cammy returns with her Delta Red gear. However, the game introduces new Swap Costume and Alternate Costume DLC giving Cammy new outfits. Her Swap Attire is based on Tekken character, King, which also alludes to her fondness for cats. Adding pro wrestling gear inspired by King, the most distinct feature is a jaguar hood with cat ears (similar to her literal catsuit in SSFIV). She also has jaguar fur on her lower body. Her alternate attire is inspired by her apparent interest in punk rock music; this is probably attributed to her being british; punk originally having stemmed from those islands. She has a skirt and alternate hair style in this form.
Cammy's appearance in Street Fighter V is mostly unaltered from her appearance in the Street Fighter IV series. She loses the camouflage markings on her legs, but gains a shoulder and thigh gun holster each and she has a significant larger bust. Her fighting stance has also changed, resembling that of Evil Ryu's in SNK vs. Capcom: Match of the Millennium.
She has two alternate costumes in the game. Her first outfit is a green military dress with a white long sleeve button shirt underneath with a black neck tie on the collar, black panties underneath her dress and black military boots. She retains her classic red beret on her head and her delta red gloves. The second is a blue (with different shades) long sleeve leotard with green shoulder holster adorned with red and black shotgun shells, black kneepads with white thigh-high socks and a matching pair of black boots. She also regains her camouflage markings on her legs (though they are brown) and also gains a black nylon utility belt on her waist and a matching black mid-arm gloves. Her long blonde hair is loose with a matching red rider goggles on her forehead.
Cammy is a strong, determined young woman with a strong sense of justice who is friendly and respectful towards those whom she knows and cares about (such as Delta Red, Chun-Li or Sakura), but can be very brutal and sometimes condescending to those whom she hates and/or does not hold in such high regards (such as M. Bison or Vega). She refuses to go down without a fight, using her extensive training from both Delta Red and Shadaloo to her advantage in defeating her enemies.
Though she does not believe in doing any more harm than is necessary to her opponents, she employs some rather deadly techniques when they are needed. Overall, Cammy is not really fiery tempered, just dismissive and irritable. She is also rather harsh on herself when she makes mistakes. She could be a girl that's torn between childhood and adulthood, struggling with the resultant stresses. She can also be rude towards comic relief characters. Cammy is also fond of cats.
Cammy strongly dislikes Vega due to his connections with Shadaloo and his obsession with her beauty. In Alpha 3 Vega was sent to observe Cammy. He told her she was meant to be destroyed and was rather rude to her, contrary to later interactions (most notably shown in SFIV & SFV). During Cammy's Character Story in SFV, Cammy and Juni are talking about cats when they are interrupted by Vega, accompanied by several Shadaloo soldiers. Vega demands to fight Cammy in order to 'awaken her beauty'. Cammy defeats Vega and he and his minions flee the scene. Later on in SFV's Cinematic Story, Cammy is in Union Station with her 'sister' Decapre and Juri. Again, Vega disrupts the scene and forces Cammy to fight him so he can see her beauty, this time succeeding in defeating her. Fortunately, Juri steps in and fights Vega, calling him a pervert and telling him to "go play somewhere else". Vega departs, but later attempt to attack Cammy again at the Shadaloo base. This time, Cammy is assisted by Decapre, and Vega is defeated once again.
Street Fighter Alpha seriesEdit
Cammy's actual birthplace and early history are unknown; her first appearance in the Street Fighter chronology was in Street Fighter Alpha 2 Gold, where she was a soulless Doll who seemingly broke free of her brainwashing and traveled the world to find out the truth. Eventually, she faced M. Bison and she asked him what her purpose was in life, in which he tells Cammy that she was to serve him, he also realized that Cammy became much stronger during her journey. Cammy wins her battle against M. Bison, but is hit by a bolt of electric current and knocked down. Once again she is brainwashed to erase her memories of whatever discovery she made during her journey.
In Street Fighter Alpha 3, Cammy was sent to assassinate Dhalsim. Dhalsim used his spiritual powers to make her self-aware, and she realized that Shadaloo was controlling her. M. Bison sent Vega to observe her. When Vega confronted her, he revealed to her that she was an "experiment" and was no longer needed. Vega intentionally lost a battle to her, and she wondered why Shadaloo wanted to destroy her, since she had never committed any altercations against them.
She later encountered Juli and Juni, two other Shadaloo Dolls, who lacked the benefit of self-awareness. When Cammy confronted Bison, he told her that she was meant to become his next body, after his current physical manifestation was destroyed by his own Psycho Power. Cammy managed to break the twelve Dolls free from Shadaloo's mind control, and they confronted Bison together. He explained to Cammy that she was a clone of himself who possessed a small portion of his Psycho Power, and that if he were to die, she would die as well. Cammy fought against his psychic probing and rescued the Dolls from Bison's control with the Psycho Drive.
Cammy got the Dolls out of the Shadaloo base and then fell unconscious, no longer a clone, but an independent human. Vega rescued her before the base was destroyed, not wanting to allow a beautiful human to die. He deposited her on the doorstep of the British paramilitary government organization Delta Red.
Cammy awoke with amnesia, and Delta Red took her in. While she could not remember her past, she retained nearly all the fighting capabilities that were implanted in her during her tenure with Shadaloo. This made her a very valuable asset to the team. The second World Warrior tournament was announced and, discovering that Bison was part of it, Cammy felt a strange connection to him, and entered the tournament. She confronted Bison, who told her that she is a copy of him, that she killed for him, that he planted her in Delta Red (but didn't count on her losing her memories), and that he had no further use for her. After Bison was defeated, her Delta Red teammates told her that she didn't need to live in the past; she had a new life to live.
The Delta Red team consists of the leader, Colonel Keith Wolfman, ranged weapons expert Matthew McCoy, melee weapons expert Lita Luwanda, and young computer expert George Ginzu.
Some time later, Cammy, Guile and Chun-Li continue to investigate S.I.N. when they run afoul of Juri, one of S.I.N.'s operatives. Juri hospitalizes Chun-Li but runs when Guile and Cammy arrive. Soon after, the three start to receive anonymous tips (unbeknownst to them, the tips are from Viper) which gives them info about Juri. They use the info they obtain to catch up to Juri as she assaults a secret facility which houses the twelve Dolls for Shadaloo.
By the time Guile and Cammy arrive, Juri has already defeated all twelve Dolls and is carrying the final two, Juni and Juli, unconscious, to her jet. A fight ensues and Guile is incapacitated, and as Cammy rushes to his aid, Juri escapes with the Dolls to her jet. Cammy catches up just as it takes off, and after a brief skirmish, Juri pushes a gurney carrying Juni into Cammy and off the plane. However, the two fall into a deep snow drift and survive.
Juni falls into a coma, and Colonel Wolfman informs her that S.I.N. has recently built a dam in India, cutting off the water supply to a nearby village where Dhalsim lives. Surveillance photos reveal S.I.N. operatives in the area bearing Shadaloo's insignia.
Dispatched to investigate, Cammy then enters the recently announced S.I.N tournament, where she swears to get revenge on Juri for the dolls who she considers her "sisters." She does encounter Juri again, although the winner of the rematch remains unknown. Later during the tournament she infiltrates the S.I.N dam base. When she does, she discovers computer files on a "BLECE Project" in the process. While reading the files, Crimson Viper surprises her and holds her at gunpoint, wanting the BLECE files for herself. Not wanting the data to be used to hurt anyone, Cammy deletes the files instead, and Viper puts away her weapon and escapes, lamenting years of investigation wasted.
During her infiltration of the base she encounters Decapre, who collapses while raving about how she hates Cammy and her face. Bison appears and informs Cammy that Decapre is dying, but that a bargain could be made. Cammy allows Bison to take Decapre in exchange for saving her life.
When Cammy informs Colonel Wolfman of her failure to retrieve the files, Wolfman informs her that he's already aware, and congratulates her on a job well done.
Cammy returns home and soon Juni wakes from her coma with some amnesia. Cammy greets her comfortably and promises to help Juni recover.
Cammy remembers her encounter with Decapre, who angrily attacked her due to her strong hatred. Then, she also remembers that she had hurt everyone in the past and now wants to protect. She is later contacted by her superior, informing her that Shadaloo is on the move.
As she travels through India, she encounters Birdie. After defeating him, he recognizes Cammy as one of Bison's dolls from the time that he was a Shadaloo member as the police arrive. Birdie escapes, which Cammy fails to.
Arriving at the Shadaloo base, she is attacked by F.A.N.G., who seeks to terminate her due to defecting from Shadaloo. During their battle, Cammy asks him about Decapre's whereabouts, then soon changes her question to be about all of Bison's dolls. F.A.N.G mocks Cammy over her desire to protect the dolls, and then alludes to Cammy's history as a killer. Before she can press further however, she is swarmed by Shadaloo soldiers as F.A.N.G mentions "Operation C.H.A.I.N.S." and warns her that if she interferes, he will kill her with no mercy, causing Cammy to flee.
When Cammy returns to London, she is reunited with Juni, noticing she has a permission to go out. As the two are talking about cats, they are cornered by Shadaloo. Vega attacks her, when Juni begins to recognizes the claw that Vega wields is much like Decapre's, and Cammy is forced to fight Vega while protecting Juni. After defeating Vega, he falls back, noticing Cammy's dangerous actions. Juni worries for Cammy as she remembers how F.A.N.G. told her about the operation. Cammy decides to stop Shadaloo and to save her fellow dolls. Juni encourages her and tells her to come back after she saves them. As Cammy leaves the scene, Juri is revealed to have been observing the whole event while spying on her.
In the main's story, Cammy manages to save Chun-Li when Bison is about to unleash his final blow towards her which makes her, Guile and Chun-Li to retreat. Cammy also explains to Guile about the activation of the seven Black Moons created by Shadaloo and its connection of the missing hackers. Cammy also gives Chun-Li the chess piece as they are confronted by a revived Charlie and along with him is Rashid and Azam and they are here to retrieve the chess pieces.
Later, Cammy arrives at the Kanzuki Estate where Karin gathers all top fighters to infiltrate against Shadaloo until they are confronted by Marz and Decapre along with Shadaloo soldiers. She and Cammy defeats both as Marz was captured by them as she saw Decapre's condition which she escapes. As everyone are gathered to get the missing chess pieces, she aids Chun-Li and Ken to go to Brazil. At Brazil after retrieving the chess piece to Laura when she joins with them in the fight, they are confronted by Decapre who is under control of its Psycho Power. Cammy gazes to see Decapre has been controlled as she steps in to fight her. Cammy manages to defeat Decapre who finally lost consciousness as the police arrive to arrest Decapre. Cammy gazes at Decapre which reveals a flashback between her and Decapre to be separated when they are little as she heard Decapre's voice who calls her as her sister. This forces Cammy to knock the police down due to her protective nature of the Dolls as Juri arrives to knock the policemen with her motorbike even as she removes Decapre's mask which she tries to expose her burned face to everyone as Cammy decides to take Decapre with Juri as they rode away.
At Union Station, Cammy noticed Decapre is awakened as she tries to attack her on purpose because of her extreme hatred towards her causing both of them to have a catfight. When Decapre is about to kill her with her infused daggers, Cammy is forced to knock her out which Juri is impressed for her actions as Vega arrives and manages to attack her because of his obsession of Cammy's beauty as Juri steps in calling Vega a pervert and simply dispatches him on time causing Vega to leave. Cammy briefly stays in Helen's side because of Decapre's sake. She later arrives in the final assault against Shadaloo and to her horrible shock that all the Dolls which is her sisters are controlled by F.A.N.G she was confronted by Juli until she was defeated. She was later attacked again by Vega which he was still obsessed from her beauty. Cammy is later saved by Decapre to block Vega's claw with her infused daggers and is now free from its control and Juri arrives to fight Vega who becomes disappointed from his defeat as he leaves. Both Cammy and Decapre are forced to fight other Dolls who are still controlled by F.A.N.G until his confrontation with Rashid leading his device to be destroyed during their fight as the other Dolls are now free from its control.
Cammy is last seen with the other Dolls watching Shadaloo's destruction.
Marvel vs. Capcom gamesEdit
In the series of crossover games with characters from Marvel Comics, Cammy appears in two of them, donning her "Killer Bee" attire from the Street Fighter Alpha series, as most of the characters from Street Fighter also retained their respective design from this series, with the exception of Chun-Li, whose sprite resembles that of Street Fighter Alpha, but retains her outfit from her regular appearances.
Cammy is one of the playable characters in the first game of the Marvel vs. Capcom series, X-Men vs. Street Fighter. It should be noted that this was the first appearance of "Killer Bee" Cammy, as she had not yet appeared in Street Fighter Alpha 2 Gold. She would remain absent in the series until Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes, where she retained most of her play style from her previous appearance, as well as her design. She did not return for Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds or its update Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
Capcom vs. SNK gamesEdit
Cammy is one of the playable characters (and one of the three Street Fighter characers, the other ones being Charlie and Vega) in the multi-directional shooter game Cannon Spike (which is named, outside of Japan, after Cammy's trademark attack).
Cammy also appears in Namco x Capcom, first as an enemy whose mind is being controlled. After a certain point, she joins the party as Chun-Li's partner.
As mentioned above, Cammy is a bonus boss character in Final Fight: Streetwise, and can be fought through the in-game tournament section as a reward.
Cammy appear as a playable character in Street Fighter X Tekken with Chun-Li as her tag partner.
Live-Action films and SeriesEdit
Cammy was mentioned in Street Fighter: Resurrection episodes "Fight & Flight" and "Mission Critical".
Cammy appears in Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie in a scene early in the movie, where she assassinates the British Minister of Justice, Albert Sellers, after being brainwashed by Shadaloo. She is then subdued by bodyguards and taken in for questioning by Interpol. She is later shown on a Shadaloo surveillance video being interrogated by Chun-Li, but by now, her brainwashing has worn off and she does not remember anything about the assassination. Bison later sends Sagat to kill both Cammy and Vega, but Cammy's fate is left unrevealed. For whatever reason, like all the characters portrayed in the anime, Cammy speaks with an American accent.
Street Fighter cartoonEdit
Cammy also makes an appearance in Street Fighter II V, again with an American accent but this time as a more honorable freelance assassin rather than a Shadaloo minion. She is hired by Interpol agent Balrog (actually a spy for Bison) to assassinate Inspector Dorai (Chun-Li's father) for destroying the Ashura syndicate, a branch of Shadaloo, although she is unaware that Balrog is working with Shadaloo and instead believes the Chief of Interpol, Barrack, has ordered the hit upon realising Dorai is supposedly with Shadaloo. Cammy hangs Dorai from his balcony in Barcelona but fails to kill him and he is hospitalised. Cammy is later informed and goes to the hospital to finish the job, but is intercepted by Fei-Long, Dorai's star pupil. Cammy and Fei-Long fight brutally and appear to be even, until Fei-Long blurts out his intention to make both her and Shadaloo pay for their crimes. Realising that she has been set up, Cammy enlists Fei-Long and Barrack's help in exposing Balrog, and makes sure to beat Balrog severely before leaving him for the authorities. Following this, she flees the scene, vowing to fight Shadaloo her own way.
After the fall of Bison and Shadaloo, Cammy enjoyed relative peace. However, while investigating strange energy readings coming from the Amazon River basin, she discovered dead animals everywhere and the shallow graves of various martial artists who have recently disappeared from around the world. Forensic analysis determined that the cells inside the animals were heated to boiling point, at which point they exploded. She called Guile to share the information as he and Chun-Li began investigating the disappearances.
Together, the three found and exposed a lab that had been experimenting on further kidnapped martial artists. They discovered from the lab's data that the experiments were authorized by an arms manufacturer called S.I.N., and that the unusual energy readings and boiled cells were part of a project called BLECE, which could harness ki energy and weaponize it. They also discovered that Ryu - whose ki potential is incomparable - was the prime target for the project.
When they finally located Ryu, Cammy rushed to warn him of the danger but failed to reach him before Crimson Viper, who at the time was believed to be an S.I.N. agent. Cammy arrived soon afterwards and warned Ryu not to use his power, as it would enable S.I.N. to capture its data, and confronted Viper instead. However, Viper surprised her with the abilities of her Battle Suit, and began to brutally torture her in an attempt to force Ryu to unleash the Satsui no Hado. She succeeded, but the power surge destroys the monitoring equipment, and she was forced to flee. She was evacuated for treatment, and later appeared alongside Guile and the US Coast Guard as they surrounded Seth's cruise ship, only for Seth to escape via a Shadaloo helicopter.
Cammy makes a cameo appearance in the 2012 Disney film, Wreck-It Ralph. In the first trailer of the film, Cammy can be seen for a brief second at Game Central Station in the right hand corner of the screen. Later in the actual film as the bad guys head off to Game Central Station, Cammy can be seen chatting with Chun-Li for a couple of seconds as they pass by the villains. Her outfit is nearly identical to her trademark Delta Red attire, except that instead of her usual barelegged appearance with green streaks, she's wearing light green tights. This change was made, most likely to make her outfit more modest, and thus, more appropriate, for a family-friendly setting.
Comics and MangaEdit
Cammy is seen in the South America underground conducted by Shadaloo, in which she fights Dan Hibiki. Being viewed from a monitor, Vega reveals that she is the result of genetic manipulation, and that she his superior to most fighters in every way despite her young age. Vega orders Cammy to slay Dan after the latter was weakened, but the fight is interrupted by Sodom (as the arena had rules to support multiple fighters joining any battle). After throwing Dan out of the arena, Sodom engages Cammy, easily overpowering her. During the fight, he causes injuries to her that free her from Shadaloo's control, and triggers her sense of pain.
Killer Bee first appears sixty days after Gouken's assassination and Charlie Nash's capture. She receives orders from Shadaloo Central Headquarters to locate Ryu, who she tracks down to a restaurant in Chinatown, San Francisco, and continues to follow him and report to M. Bison. That same night, she tracks Ryu, Ken and Eliza to Ken's house, and continues to observe, listening to their conversation and realizing her target was about to leave the country. A flashback from six months prior to that time, Killer Bee is revealed to have been sent to Hong Kong to capture an agent of Interpol that had infiltrated in Shadaloo, Dorai.
He is swiftly apprehended by Shadaloo agents as Cammy fight his daughter Chun-Li, before escaping herself. In her next scene, Killer Bee has been captured by Rose, who had sensed in her "the potential to be human". Using her powers, she "killed" the codenamed agent Killer Bee, freeing her and providing her with the name "Cammy". She appears in a flashback of Charlie, who tells Chun-Li how her father was set to fight Shadaloo's 13 Dolls, only to be killed by Killer Bee. In yet another flashback, from about a year before her capture by Rose, Killer Bee is shown fighting Vega as Bison's last test of her abilities, and manages to knock him down in a moment of distraction. Later in the flashback, she is seen in a restricted area, undergoing Shadaloo's Memory Algorithm Delete Program. Back to present day, Cammy wakes up on a bench in front of the British Embassy in Rome, Italy, with a note reading: "Welcome to your new life, Cammy. Do not waste it."
Already part of Delta Red, she is shown in a mission in the border between Germany and France, where the team struggles to escort a British cabinet minister from Berlin to home. During the mission, Cammy figures something was off when a wagon from the train they were in is disengaged, and walks into a secret Shadaloo operation, capturing agent Satsuki. Later, in Lieutenant Matthew McCoy's flat in London, Cammy explains her arrival to the British Embassy back in Italy. In the occasion, she walked right into a terrorist attack, and was forced to fight. By the time Delta Red arrived at the location, Cammy had handled the 30 terrorists mentioned to be in the area, and was quickly enlisted in Delta Red's training. Later on, she woke up from a nightmare involving her past as assassin and the genetic experiments from which Killer Bee was born. She called Colonel Wolfman immediately, informing him of her dream, and remarking that she never had one before. Upon interrogating Satsuki by herself, she was saluted as "Commanding Doll Officer Killer Bee", and pretended to be under cover so as to win her trust.
She is given highlights of a past mission, in which she had assassinated Professor Rodmovic's team for the designs of an experimental weapon, of which the technology was being used to recuperate Bison's health, after his fight with Charlie in Japan. In a reunion in MI-6, she reports everything she learned from Satsuki, while George Ginzu gathered intelligence of Shadaloo's actions, figuring out that almost all of the organization's major cells were focusing operations in Brazil. With the help of Shadaloo agents, Satsuki escapes her cell and, later, the building, saluting Cammy for a last time while being lifted off by a helicopter. When Delta Red is shown dropping off in a dense Brazilian forest, she is seen leading the way.
Cammy is a quick, close range fighter. She lacks any projectile or long-reaching attacks, and therefore hurls herself at the enemy relying on speed and priority. For example, her standing hard punch can often cancel an opponent's attack outright, if it connects. Priority such as this makes her one of the easiest characters to use in Capcom vs. SNK 2. Her original incarnation in Super Street Fighter II had trouble evading projectile attacks, so later incarnations involved reworked and additional special moves to evade fireballs with ease. Her moveset utilizes many kicks, but she also has several grabs, her trademark being her frankensteiner. At times Cammy also has a more brutal fighting style, such as her second ultra in Super Street Fighter IV.
Cammy's overall style revolves around doing sudden and rapid sweeping attacks. Her moveset allows the player to attack from almost any given range, and with great agility as a benefit. Her combo ability rivals that of Akuma, and can easily be on the toes of the opponent throughout the battle. However, her moves are a bit awkward to execute, and can make her vulnerable if blocked accordingly since her moves can put the player right in front of the opponent for an easy counterattack.
Also, Cammy's offensive power lacks mixup, often requiring frame-traps and/or baits to open up defenses. Due to her fast offense however, she is able to apply solid wakeup pressure and vortex mixups. Overall, Cammy is a very versatile character with a great offensive game, with useful attacks to prevent her from being cornered.
Cammy fights in England in her first appearance, but her voice actors in the games always have either American or Japanese accents, up until Street Fighter IV where she now sports a proper English accent. She is voiced in the Marvel vs. Capcom series by Susan Hart (not to be confused with the adult film actress of the same name).
Cammy appears as one of the heroes in the 1994 movie Street Fighter. She is portrayed by the famous Australian musician Kylie Minogue. In the movie Cammy is a British intelligence agent that is serving as Colonel Guile's intel officer and right-hand woman in the Allied Nations Army. In Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie and Street Fighter II V, Cammy's accent is American and she is voiced by Debra Jean Rogers. In Street Fighter IV: The Ties that Bind, Cammy is finally English again and voiced by Caitlin Glass. Caitlin continues portraying Cammy in Street Fighter X Tekken and in Street Fighter V.

- Cammy is among the two characters in Super Street Fighter IV who have been given a counter ultra, the CQC (Cammy's Quick Combination), with the other character being Fei Long, whose counter ultra is Gekirinken.
- She was initially going to be in the front box cover for Super Street Fighter IV, before being replaced by Dudley near the final release; however, she is featured on the Japanese cover.
- In Masahiko Nakahira's Sakura Ganbaru manga, Cammy was accidentally named by Sakura, who found her with a lost memory. Cammy couldn't remember her name, but Sakura called her Cammy, the name coming from a cat in her neighborhood she reminded her of.
- In Makoto's 3rd Strike ending, Cammy can be seen among the fighters defeated by Makoto. This was most likely a cameo appearance then anything else.
- Abel and Cammy share many similar character traits:
- Their past is linked with Shadaloo (as "replacement bodies" for M. Bison and Shadaloo experiment objects).
- They both share a soft spot for stray house pets: Abel enjoys dogs while Cammy prefers cats.
- They both suffered from amnesia.
- They both hate M. Bison: Cammy hates him because he brainwashed her and turned her into an assassin; Abel, on the other hand, hates the Shadaloo leader because he remembers him as the man from his past, probably linked with the disappearance of his adopted father.
- They both have blonde hair, clear-colored eyes and are European born/representative: Abel is possibly from France, while Cammy hails from England.
- They both bear physical scars: however, while Cammy has a single one on her left cheek, Abel has numerous scars across his body, including five on his face.
- In Decapre's Ultra Street Fighter IV opening, a young Cammy is seen comforting a young Decapre. Oddly enough, Cammy speaks in an American accent and not a British one, likely due to her origin story indicating she isn't actually a UK native.
- In Street Fighter Alpha 2, M. Bison states that Cammy has the power to destroy an entire country. This being said, it is very possible that Cammy has not fully retained her skill after suffering from amnesia and could become considerebly more powerful in the future.
- Cammy's alternate "Horror" costume (a bee outfit, a nod to her codename "Killer Bee") in Ultra Street Fighter IV has a strong resemblance to Q-Bee from the Darkstalkers games, also made by Capcom.
- Initially, Cammy's model in Street Fighter V had angular, European features, which were altered following complaints from Japanese commentators, who felt Cammy's new design was "aimed at foreigners" and “exceedingly ugly”.
- In addition to complaints, parts of Cammy, R. Mika and Juri's bodies have been "censored" in Street Fighter V. For example, Cammy's opening scene is shown at a higher angle than before and her classic mid-fight pose has also been changed to a less revealing one. These changes have caused widespread controversy among the Street Fighter community, many claiming that it should not have been added or was not needed and others saying it should not have been changed.
- One of the earlier drafts of Cammy's character design in Super Street Fighter II has her wearing harnesses and a gun holster, details which were eventually incorporated into her Street Fighter V default design.
