Well, here we go...


Poison is a fan favorite, consistently cosplayed and also one of the most controversial figures among the entire Street Fighter roster. Originally appearing in Final Fight as part of the Mad Gear Gang, Poison's transition from Japanese to American culture resulted in some rather interesting character changes.

Rarely will there be discussion about Poison without talk of her gender, and it seems her story changes depending on whether you're in Japan or America. It seems even Capcom's Yoshinori Ono has made contrasting statements about Poison's identity.

History Behind the Warrior has developed a video detailing the character's history both in and out of game story lines. Give it a watch to get the full picture on Poison.
