Streets Of Rage Wiki

Rider is an enemy which appears in Streets of Rage 2 and Streets of Rage 3.


Riders appear as helmeted punks driving motorcycles, which they use to zip around the screen while trying to trample the player, while others will throw grenades as they pass by. Some of those will need to be knocked down from their motorcycles before being able to proceed. Others will be fought like regular enemies; these will fight bare fisted or carrying lead pipes.




  • In Streets of Rage 2, Riders are named after natural phenomena like hail, storm, fog, tempest, frost, etc.
  • Storm bears a striking resemblance to Jagi, one of the four Hokuto Brothers who later became Kenshiro's enemy in the manga (and later anime) Fist of the North Star.
  • Rider was originally considered as a returning enemy for Streets of Rage 4, alongside Jack, Hakuyo, Slum, Vice and Chiba. Like those, he was ultimately scrapped.
    • He was, however, in a way, replaced by Sugar, as a female counterpart and spiritual successor.
  • Even though in Streets of Rage 2 they can occasionally jump off their bikes to fight on foot, the Riders in Streets of Rage 3 never do this, as a result, they are always fought while riding their bikes.
