The BOXING GORLS belong to the Punch-Out!! universe. This is their original conception, but they're pretty versatile and can work on their own or alongside my other original characters. However, I enjoy playing up their dynamics with the canon cast since they're really fun, and a foil for them (Such as Rory to Aran) can open to interesting dynamics.
I got into Punch-Out back when I was scrolling through youtube and found a Wii gameplay, and it subsequently developed into an interest for combat sports. Weirdly enough, if it wasn't for Punch-Out, I probably wouldn't have gotten into judo in real life... so I thank this game for my newfound love for exercising!
★ Characters ★
Aliases: "Lis" by friends, "Moomin" by any old person
From: Helsinki, Finland
Height: 183 cm/6'0"
Weight: 62 kg/138 lbs
Reach: 185 cm/73"
Total fights: 7 (2 victories by decision, 5 losses)
Fun fact: Since her mom is Argentinian, her tango is much, much better than her boxing.
"After spending months on programming the perfect artificial coach, Alice had completely neglected the physical training itself. It's a (painful) work in progress, as her only remarkable qualities are her height and intelligence."
She's based off one of Punch-Out's Arm wrestling rival,
& Ape III, but instead revamped into a lanky finnish boxer-mechanic (formerly belgian until I couldn't think of many
Despite having a knack for machines, Alice decided to go down the sporty path simply because she likes it, even if without being the most fit for it. She constantly falls in love with the nearest american boy who has the slightest bit of attitude, and got her latest patent stolen thanks to an incompetent attorney and poor financial choices. She also speaks in baritone and laughs like Betty la fea.
Relationships: In her younger years, she considered her robo-coach the closest and only friend she had, but she's learned to step out
her social bubble as she grew older.
Alice has an unrequired crush on Disco Kid, but she's too oblivious to realize that he's not into ladies at all. Her only true friend is Rory, who treats her like a punching bag and rewards her with a new Tamagotchi every six months. She also recieved lessons from Von Kaiser for a while, but it was mainly because her robo-coach was still in testing at the time. They have a good teacher-student relationship, but Alice regrets not being a hardened german engine like him.
Karina "Arm Candy" Larson
Aliases: "Candy" by friends
From: Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
Height: 196 cm/6'5"
Weight: 82 kg/182 lbs
Reach: 198 cm/78"
Total fights: 25 (20 KOs, 4 TKOs, 1 loss)
Fun fact: The only thing her Dominican dad left her is a half-sister that she baybisits during weekends.
"As the name suggests, Arm Candy used to be a well-known ring girl in the WVBA, until ultimately getting dumped by a boxer. However, she would manage to reach World Circuit in just a matter of three years, sacrificing her all positive reputation to be the headcase that she is nowadays."
Yet again, taking an NPC from the Arm Wrestling game. I'm basing her off Vonda Ward and the typical american trophy girl, who just so happens to be a brawny sociopath coming a long way: from a hotel clerk, criminal, model, to a slugger.
Besides her actual experience with boxing, she has some wrestling knowledge from her highschool sports club, although those aspiring olympian days are over. Her hobbies include crippling people, being jealous, bullying shorties, and hanging out with with her equally diva pals at her 70's themed apartment. She also plans on dying at 50 by crashing at high speed on her AMC Matador
Relationships: Karina's famously disliked by her peers, but the only person she truly gets along with is Super Macho Man, mostly due to
their matching elitist attitude. They pay for the expenses of the other and often act like sour
old ladies bickering in a Florida retirement home.
She also had a dull fling with Aran Ryan that made both reach their breaking points, whom she can't currently talk to without strangling him. Some time later, Subaru and her entered a more meaningful relationship, but ultimately broke it off, much to Karina's dismay. She still yearns to reconnect with her through aggressive means.
Despite her malice, Karina is concerned about any young girl entering the association due to the treatment she got in her younger years, inspiring her stagename.
Aliases: "Sue" by Karina
From: Yokohama, Kanagawa, Japan
Height: 178 cm/5'10"
Weight: 75 kg/165 lbs
Reach: 178 cm/70"
Total fights: 29 (28 KOs, 1 victory by decision )
Fun fact: Her favorite people ever are Sakana-kun and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
"Once a judoka and now the champion of the World Circuit, Kandori's jolly attitude is off-putting to a few, and relieving to many. Though it's well known that she has no preference when it comes to size or sex: every oponent is a step closer to becoming Japan's strongest woman."
I'm particularly fond of masculine ladies, so I dragged a heavy inspiration from Shinobu Kandori, a very cool japanese wrestler.
Subaru spent her teenage years training to be an olympic champion, before an accident put an end to her career and caused a fall out in her life. Still sour, she became a coach overseas until she discovered her new passion: boxing.
Although that molded her into the optimistic person that she is today, her coaching is a complete nightmare, and no weakling comes out alive from her training. Martial arts, alongside the business behind the scenes, is a serious matter to her, so she'll turn down any unchallenging exhibition fight or crappy international deals. Being your own manager has it's perks.
Relationships: She avoids Karina as to not let any personal beef intervene with her job, to the point
of refusing to hit her on the ring. Despite her own conflicting feelings, Subaru tries to remain neutral on the matter.
Besides that, she has no issues with anyone past tansient distrust from the other end. She's very detached from people to the point of being unknowingly insensitive, but she's always there to give the younger fellas pep talk and training during her spare time. She doesn't seem too concerned about her solitude thanks to her near-obsession with sports and self-improvement.
Aliases: "Pup" by Aran Ryan, "Fosforito" as her luchadora persona, "Enrica" as an inside joke
From: Dublin, Ireland
Height: 160 cm/5'3"
Weight: 56 kg/125lbs
Reach: 157 cm/62"
Total fights: 10 (5 KOs, 2 victories by decision, 3 losses)
Fun fact: The rest of her family calls her "pony" because she used to be a pot-bellied toddler.
"Succumbing to the mainstream competitiveness, Rory chose to box despite having practiced collar and elbow back in her homeland. That's why her fights are prone to irish leglocks and uncalled kicks to the face, if she's in a particularly bad mood."
The first girl I came up with thanks to an askblog I started out in 2021 (only that she's a wee lass in that
version before I concieved her as an action girl), so she's the earliest developed.
Spending all day with Father Jack Hackett for a mother has turned her into an overachieving bully, having gone from collar and elbow, kickboxing and volleyball to the nearly criminal boxing of the W.V.B.A., often inadvertedly adding them to her current style-- plus all that showy lucha libre she sees on TV behind her mom's back.
Relationships: Despite being withdrawn and often mistaken for shy, Rory's a brusque girl with a liking to pick on docile people like Alice or Little Mac, although not in the same callous level as Arm Candy.
Her older brother doesn't take her boxing ambitions seriously given his own detachment from sportmanship, so he encourages her to cheat and often exploits her recklessness for his own schemes. Although he still cares for her, Rory feels like he's constantly overshadowing her, only prompting her to be more competitive. She does get along well with Aran's friends who happened to watch over her when she was little, like Soda Popinski.
Though she's much more romantically reserved than Alice, she's had her history of fleeting crushes, mainly consisting of luchadores and toreadores. Her favorite boxer is Masked Muscle just because he can get away with spitting poison at people's faces. And much like her brother, she's terrified of her mother.
