Final Fight (and eventually Street Fighter) character Poison’s history has been riddled with speculation and various back-and-forths regarding her gender. Her recent return to the general consciousness of Capcom fans and subsequent addition to Street Fighter X Tekken have only helped fan the flames surrounding said issue. So, how do we finally close the door (or at least come close to it) on this issue? Leave it to Youtube user MegatonStammerÂ and his exhaustively researched and pretty informative 20-minute documentary on Poison’s gender issues.
It definitely is interesting to see how everything can get blown out of proportion due to things being lost in translation or just simply having different statements from various people working at Capcom. Massive props to MegatonStammer for putting together something that’s not only enlightening, but is also pretty darn entertaining to watch.
So, is everything regarding Poison’s gender clear now, or are you left with even more questions? Do sound off in the comments.
