Blaze Fielding is the deuteragonist from the Streets Of Rage series of games. Being in every game thus far, she is considered the front woman of the series. A mainstay of the series, having appeared in every installment, she was a British former police detective who also worked as a private eye. While she starts out the series as a stereotypical female character (fast but weak), she ends up becoming the series' all-rounder by the second game. Her specialty is Judo, which gives her a more powerful 'throw' move than the other characters. With balanced attributes and solid fighting techniques, Blaze is widely-held to be the one of the strongest characters in SoR3, but the second weakest character in SoR2 after Skate . Her special techniques in the later two games are a cartwheel kick (Embukyaku) and a fireball (Kikousho). Her standard blitz attack, Vertical Slash, is a forward somersault that strikes enemies with her fists.
- Combination - attack repeatedly. In the original, she has two chops, a thrust kick, and back-flip kick. The
- Back-kick/Sweep kick (attack + jump) - In the original, she did the higher ranged back-kick to the head of the opponent. In the sequel and trilogy, she does a back sweep tripping any opponents that merge behind blaze. In the sequel, the first part of the attack can actually hit an opponent in the front as well. The move command will also throw any weapon.
- Embukyaku (special) - This is a brand new move for the sequel. The back cartwheel knocks opponents in multiple directions. In the sequel, as long as the move doesn't hit an opponent, this will not drain your life gauge. In the trilogy, using this move with having a the meter on "OK" will take some energy from the life gauge.
- Fireball (f+special) - This move is brand new to the sequel much like Chunli's kikosho which drains plenty of the opponent's life gauge. In the SOR3, it's comes out in a form of a combination attack rather than one blow making it ore initially effective but takes up less of the opponent's life gauge. NOTE: This move will change if he has a knife in her hands.
- Knee Combination (Front Grapple f+attack) - In the original, blaze does a few knee attacks and does a back-flip kick to opponents hitting any opponent nearby. In SOR2 and SOR3, she does two knee attacks, but does a power smack to the opponent.
- Sweep Slam (Front Grapple + attack) - Blaze sweeps the opponent and does a forward power-slam.
- Judo Lift Throw (Front Grapple b+attack) - Blaze thrusts her foot into her opponent and lifts them over and tosses them across the screen. This opponent is good when you want to deflect a group of attackers.
- German Suplex (Back Grapple + attack) - Blaze back suplexs opponent dealing much damage.
- Vertical Slash (f,f+ attack) - This is a brand new special move in SOR2. She does a front handspring into the air and chops the opponent. In the sequel, this move is powerful and very effective on opponents, but in SOR3, the move is far toned down. NOTE: This move will change if she has a knife or sword in her hands.
- Vertical Slash II (f,f+ attack (1 star) - This is a brand new special move in SOR2. She does a front handspring into the air and chops the opponent. In the sequel, this move is powerful and very effective on opponents, but in SOR3, the move is far toned down. With one star, this move has ore range in the attack.
- Gainer Back-flip kick (f,f+attack (2 stars) - Blaze does an incredible forward back-flip kick impacting opponent in a combination.
- Gainer Back-flip, Blaze slide kick (3 stars) - Blaze does an incredible forward back-flip kick impacting opponent in a combination leading into her new signature; blaze slide-kick.
