Cycloid Beta (サイクロイドβ Saikuroido β?) is a video game character from the Street Fighter EX series, first appearing in in Street Fighter EX Plus as a secret character. Alongside Cycloid Gamma, it is a humanoid weapon that is capable of mimicking moves from other fighters.
The Cycloids consist of Cycloid-β (a.k.a. Cycloid Beta), who is a blue 3D-model of a human male with no facial features, and Cycloid-γ (a.k.a. Cycloid Gamma), who looks similar to Beta, only Gamma's a wireframe model. Both use attacks borrowed from other characters and don't speak. Their origins are unknown. Amusingly, its body shines and still does so even when the game is paused.
Cycloid-β is a mysterious weapon that was found by Cycloid-γ during one of its escapades. Its origin is unknown, but Beta shares many similarities with Gamma, including having a mixture of fighting techniques and occassionaly running away from Shadaloo.
Street Fighter EX PlusEdit
Mysterious Cyborgs suddenly appeared. What is their purpose? They are tools of wars that have absorbed the techniques of martial artists. Will it be the true warrior who will stop these evolved weapons? Or will it be the master of the Satsui no Hadou?
