Glow Heads is a term that started being used in the streets of Metro City during Final Fight: Streetwise, referring to users of a new street drug known as "glow". Users of the drug have glowing green eyes and become stronger, but they also become more aggressive, appearing as enemies.
While in the Bijou Hotel, Kyle witnessed some glow junkies for the first time and they give him trouble. They later appear again as part of the Blue Ballers, in the glow factory, and when the Glow Heads riot in the city.
They first appear in three forms. The weaker type (orange shirt) acts like a zombie, walking slowly and grabbing Kyle, rubbing him while rocking him back and forth. The other two types (black and blue shirts) act like normal thugs, and all three are able to use Bats. Later, the orange type will also act like the others while still keeping his own moves.
Besides the common three versions, near the end of the game the orange type will appear muscular, apparently having a large dose of glow. This big enemy attacks by charging at Kyle and rolling. Due to his size, he can't be grabbed and won't flinch against most attacks.
These enemies have the same names of common male Pedestrians.
Some members of the Blue Ballers appear under the effect of the drug. They are more muscular and tough, not flinching against most attacks. They will suicide while hold grenades. If unarmed, they will attack Kyle with a spinning claw attack or use a grab move where they choke Kyle and violently wrench him back and forth. If Kyle is defeated with this move, The Blue Baller will tear out his heart, killing him.
During the riot of Glow Heads, two muscular enemy types appear, one being a Pedestrian and the other a masked thug. These masked thugs hold a knife in each hand and attack in three ways:
- Strike with both hands at the same time.
- A wide slice followed by another slice.
- Five quick stabs followed by a stab with both hands, knocking Kyle down.
Like the Pedestrian muscular enemy, they can't be grabbed and won't flinch against most attacks. They have the same names of the common masked thugs.
- Dirty Dave
- Little Squeaky
- Mr. Scurry
Four Horsemen of the ApocalypseEdit
Father Bella (and Dr. Chang) used large doses of glow to mutate people into his Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, who appear as bosses: War (The Weasel), Famine (Blades), Pestilence, and Death (Stiff Death and Cody Death).
