Ruby (ルビィ?) is a character adapted from Ruby Heart (ルビィ・ハート?), an original character who appeared in Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes.. She was first revealed in the Street Fighter V character guide.
Ruby is the youngest child in a family of fishermen which include her older brothers Momotaru, Bows. and Beard. A strong-willed lady, she is the most stable and firm person in the entire family. She always makes clear what she wants and always enjoyed her father's travels tales when he was a pirate. While working at her mother's bar she started constructing her own ship to sail the seas. Her ship's name is Pare-Tonn're (パートナー Pātonā?, mistranslation of "Paratonnere", which is French for "lightning rod", has also been translated as "Partenaire", French for "partner").
In September 2016, Ruby was added to the Street Fighter V character guide. According to the director Takayuki Nagayama, she's not intended to be Ruby Heart, but a different character similar to her.
- According to Yoshinori Ono and Seth Killian, Ruby Heart was originally a rejected character from the Darkstalkers series.
