Her V-Skill is her Perfume Swing is a swinging strike that can travel one of two distances. It can be cancelled from some of her normal attacks and allows for a follow-up strike. It can also travel over most projectiles if spaced correctly. Poison's second V-Skill is Cartwheel, which allows her to flip her opponents to get them on their heels and open up their defenses. Her first V-Trigger is the Poison Cocktail where she hits her opponent with Molotov cocktails as her projectile and her second V-Trigger is the Toxic Glamor where she gains access to two new command grabs: Toxic Hold, a fast, short ranged command grab and Toxic Bind, a slow but long ranged command grab.
It was once believed that Poison and Roxy were originally planned to be cisgender females, because of a rumor that claimed that because of an issue on the idea of making female characters take part in a beat em up game that the developers went with the idea of making them transgender. This was later proven to be false, as it can be seen in concept art for Poison that she was referred to as "ニューハーフ" (roughly translated as "newhalf"), a largely derogatory Japanese term equivalent to "shemale". This was where the worry of controversy for Western Audiences stems from. When the US version of the game was ported onto the SNES in 1991, Poison and Roxy were replaced with two male thugs named Billy and Sid for the American release. 59ce067264
