Seifuku Densetsu Pretty Fighter (制服伝説プリティファイター Seifuku Densetsu Puriti Faitā?, lit. "Seifuku Legend Pretty Fighter") is a 1994 fighting game developed by Genki and published by Imagineer for the Super Famicom. Similar to Metal & Lace: Battle of the Robo Babes, the Variable Geo and Asuka 120% franchises, the game features an all-female roster with eight fan service-friendly girls.
In 1995, an enhanced version titled Seifuku Densetsu Pretty Fighter X (制服伝説 プリティ・ファイターX?), was released for the Sega Saturn. This version is basically the same as the original version, but features four additional characters and anime-style animation sequences, as well as altered graphics and audio. In 1996, a 3D sequel titled FIST was released for the Sony PlayStation and Sega Saturn, but had little success in Japan with low ratings and sales.
Marin Aoki (青木 真琳?) (Voiced by: Kyōko Hikami) - Considered the Yuka Takeuchi or the Asuka Honda of the series. Marin is a normal school girl in a sailor uniform. Her best friend Saki was attacked by bullies and Marin quickly disposed of them. Marin's sailor outfit also bears a resemblance to Sailor Moon's outfit. Marin's signature attack "Blue Sailor Punch" is taken from blue sailor, a fetish reference where people can buy used girls' panties in Japan from vending machines and shops. Another signature attack of hers is sending an assistant character. The color mainly associated from her is blue (Aoki).
Jyuri Akasaka (Juri) (赤坂 樹里?) (Voiced by: Rica Fukami) - Juri's move set is nearly identical to Marin's. She works the daytime as an OL, but at night she goes to nightclubs dancing the night away in a dancer's uniform. She takes out a couple of thugs who cause trouble at the club. Juri's last name Akasaka is named after the Akasaka district in Tokyo known for its nightclubs and hostess bars. The color mainly associated from her is red (Akasaka).
Minami Midorikawa (綠川 みなみ?) (Voiced by: Akemi Okamura) - Minami is a young girl who goes to a private school. She is Marin's friendly rival, like Karina Toyota is to Asuka Honda in the Asuka 120% series. She even saved a young baseball player from an oncoming train, and afterwards, she took down a player from a rival team who pushed the player in the first place. The color mainly associated from her is green (Midorikawa).
Kris Shiratori (白鳥 クリス?) (Voiced by: Mika Kanai) - Kris is a bubbly nurse with pink hair and a cute disposition. She works at a hospital and handles her duties as a doctor and a nurse. While fighting, she uses doctor's equipment to her advantage as exemplified by taking out a sword-wielding fiend who tries to assassinate one of her patients. Her clock tower stage in Pretty Fighter X is set to the user's real time clock that can be set on the Saturn's menu. The color mainly associated from her is white (Shiratori).
Ryouko Kiori (Oryou) (黃織 涼子 「おりょう」?) (Voiced by: Yuri Satou) - Ryouko, or Oryou as she likes to be called, is a college student who loves doing traditional Japanese customs. She takes out a ninja who tried to harm her and her friends. The color mainly associated from her is yellow (Kiori).
Keiko Konno (Kei) (紺野 警子?) (Voiced by: Eri Nomoto) - Kei is a police officer who delivers justice with a blazing fury. She carries around her standard police gear when she's fighting or chasing after criminals and is not above using her sex appeal to trap them. An example of this is when she takes out a knife-wielding lunatic by distracting him with her curvaceous features. The color mainly associated from her is navy (Konno).
Ai Momoyama (桃山 愛?) (Voiced by: Ikue Ōtani) - Ai is a gymnast who plans on excelling to the top. She loves to train and keep herself focused. She loves bananas and hates boys who take voyeur photos of her at inconvenient times. Ai's gymnastics routines like rhythmic and callisthenic are used in her fighting moves. She even saves some little kids from a vampiric scoundrel. The color mainly associated from her is pink (Momoyama).
Yawara Yamabuki (山吹 柔?) (Voiced by: Ayumi Kida) - Yawara is a martial artist who wears a judo uniform. Similar to Torami Hōjō from the Asuka 120% series, Yawara plans on establishing herself as the strongest fighter. Like most female judoka in video games, Yawara is based on the real-life Japanese judoka Ryoko Tani. Yawara also stopped a maniac with a gun after she won first place at a judo competition in Kyushu.
Sorami Shizaki (紫崎 空美?) (Voiced by: Atsuko Tanaka) - Sorami is a young stewardess who travels around the world. She quickly disposed of a hijacker during a flight even using a bit of her sex appeal. She's also a teetotaller, meaning she doesn't drink any alcohol. She was added to the roster Pretty Fighter X.
Shizuka Minakami (水上 静?) (Voiced by: Yōko Sōmi) - Shizuka is a high school teacher who is arrogant and domineering. On off days, she loves to bet on horse races. She comes dressed in a white laboratory coat when she goes into battle. She took out a group of male delinquents who raided her classroom inventory and made them clean up her classroom. She was added to the roster of Pretty Fighter X.
Tokiko Tsuchiya (土屋 登喜子?) (Voiced by: Katsuyo Endou) - Tokiko is currently a waitress at Ima Ima Host, a restaurant similar to Anna Miller's. She had an encounter with a thug wearing a wrestling mask and quickly took him down. She was added to the roster Pretty Fighter X.
Maria Christel (マリア・クリステル?) (Voiced by: Kikuko Inoue) - Maria is a Catholic nun in a traditional habit. Maria is the evil mastermind in Pretty Fighter X and is the lighter equivalent to Vega/M. Bison. She loves to pray and hates computer technology since it distracts her from her religious beliefs. Maria also has hired henchmen who try to attack the 11 girls (as seen in the anime sequences), but fail at the hands of the fighters. Maria Christel is the only fighter without an anime introduction in Pretty Fighter X.
