Roxy (ロキシー Rokishī?) is a character from the Final Fight series, appearing as a member of the Mad Gear Gang. She appears as a palette swap of Poison, having orange hair instead of Poison's trademark pink.
Roxy appears very similar to Poison, having long orange hair, and wearing a black peak cap and a midriff-revealing tanktop. Roxy wears cutoff red jean shorts, and, like Poison, carries around a pair of handcuffs.
In her Street Fighter V artwork, Roxy now has a red vest and a lacy white band around one of her legs, along with black high-heeled shoes. 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.
- 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 SNES 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.
- Roxy is named after the English rock band Roxy Music.
