While story and character development aren’t qualities most people look for in fighting games, one personality in Street Fighter’s history draws a fair amount of attention whenever she happens to make an appearance. Poison, the Mad Gear lackey first seen in the original Final Fight, went through a fair amount of adjustment when the game made its way to America, changing drastically from woman to transsexual before being scrapped altogether in favor of a different male character. Or so we thought. A new mini-documentary from MegatonStammer chronicles the true facts behind these changes as well as recent developments in her history, hoping to once and for all put an end to the confusing nature of this oft-discussed character. Check it out below.
