Sarah Bryant




Sarah Bryant is a college student from San Francisco, CA that debuted in the original Virtua Fighter. According to the game's story, Sarah, eldest daughter of the Bryant family becomes suspicious of the circumstances surrounding her brother Jacky's horrible accident in the 1990 Indianapolis 500. While investigating this accident, a mysterious group called Judgment 6 kidnapped and brainwashed her. Her innate fighting sense aroused by the brainwashing, Sarah was sent into World Martial Arts Tournament to deliver the knock-out blow to her brother Jacky. She fights with Martial Arts, which includes a bit of Savate, Taekwondo and Karate style.

Since the end of the third tournament, Sarah has fully regained her memories. Life went back to normal for all the Bryants, but Sarah still felt a twinge of uncertainty. Even though she has recovered, she remembered all the bad things she had done while under the Organization's control. Worst of all, she remembers trying to kill Jacky. She is also unable to remember clearly enough if the desire to kill Jacky was a result of J6's brainwashing, or if it was part of her own wishes all along. When she finds out that Jacky intends to join the fourth tournament, she decides to do so as well, so that she can beat Jacky and resolve matters once and for all.

A leggy blonde who knows Karate? I sure wasn't going to complain about that as an 11 year old kid in 1994. I liked Sarah even better in VF2. For all the right reasons. Female heroine. Hot. Great combos. The 90's were simple good times. For me, Sarah was an early waifu if you will... (although that meme didn't exist in the 90's).

Anyhow, Sarah was the token blonde of the VF series since the very beginning. By today's standards, I'm not sure if her blue spandex, full-body suit is as "cool" as it was in the 90's... but nonetheless, she still wears it well and people still aren't complaining about her (are they? I don't care). Although I find her original attire bland by today's standards, Sarah's alt. outfits (and customizations) in her post VF2 years weren't half bad.

Finally, Sarah's moveset was always heavy on kicks and knees... which I always liked (did I mention that?). Over the years, Ms. Bryant acquired some plenty of cool new maneuvers and throws... notably in VF4-VF5. Watching the evolution of her design was always fun. Sega did a consistently good job on her. She was even good in DOA5 and part of the reason I even bothered to try that game. :)
