Rider is an enemy which appears in Streets of Rage 2 and all subsequent games.
Riders appear as helmeted punks driving motorcycles, which they use to zip around the screen while trying to trample the player. Some of those will need to be knocked down from their motorcycles before being able to procceed. Others will be fought like regular enemies, these will fight barefisted or carrying lead pipes.
- The Riders are named after natural phenomena like hail, storm, fog, etc.
- Storm bears a striking resemblance to Jagi, one of the 4 Hokuto Brothers who later became Kenshiro's enemy in the manga (and later anime) Fist of the North Star.
