Athena Asamiya is a pop idol who fights evil as she seeks to bring peace to the world. Her fighting style incorporates Kung Fu, which she learned growing up, along with her psychic powers. Her character’s personality is serious yet polite. In this iteration, she has teamed up with two familiar, yet different characters.

Mai Shiranui is a kunoichi and successor of the Shiranui style of martial arts. She has mastered using large fans as weapons and uses her graceful movement to defeat her enemies. On the other hand, Yuri Sakazaki has managed to learn deadly techniques only one year after joining the Kyokugenryu Dojo. She has joined the fight to prove her skills to her older brother, Ryo Sakazaki.
