Zamza is a recurring boss from Streets of Rage 2 as well as a hidden boss in Streets of Rage 4.


Zamza appears as a masked clawed fighter, keeping a hunched position with its arms extended. He has various attacks up in his sleeve and is very nimble, being able to easily evade attacks or suplex the player. However, some of his attacks can be easily countered. For example, if the player keeps a distance, he will attempt to either slide or do a forward flip, which the player can counter with a Forward Forward B move (i.e. Axel's Grand Upper) to knock him out.

He appears in:

  • Level 3 (Zamza) - Main Boss. While he never summons other enemies to aid him it is possible to drag existing enemies to the area where he appears.
  • Level 6 (Souther) - Main Boss. He will be fighting alongside with 1-3 Jets, depending on the difficulty: Stealth, Blitz, and Kite. The player just needs to beat Souther to complete the level as the other Jets will fall.
  • Level 8 (Nail). He is part of the Boss Gauntlet in the last stage. The player will fight him and many enemies in a cramped elevator, making this fight very difficult. Beating him rewards a chunk of health restored.
