Appearance[edit | edit source]
Rouge is a dark-skinned woman with long brown hair tied in a braid and wears a white headband with the red gem on the center and wears a pale blue bra top with brown collar, purple pants and brown shoes.
In her anime appearance, she remains largely the same as in the games as her bra top is now white and her collar is purple to match her pants.
In her Power change form, she is barefoot and has fire hair that faces in the up direction, with a large gold object around her neck and gold wrapped around her torso. She has a pink see-through harem pants with a pink belt hanging from them, and a gold ankle bracelet that reaches to her foot.
Story[edit | edit source]
Rouge the Gypsy fortuneteller is exotic and graceful, with a mysterious, refined presence. Guided by signs in her crystal, she is dancing her way around the world in search for the famed Power Stones.
In her ending, Rouge finds the Power Stone she was searching for which she intends to use bringing happiness to people all over the world. She opens a tent in the Paris World Fair, granting simple wishes to people. Kraken, reduced to a mere barker from his defeat by Rouge, is seen and heard attracting patrons to the Dream House of Rouge. Rouge grants a man's wish, which turns out to see Rouge nude, surprising the man, his father, and his son as well as Rouge herslf. She covers the image and shames the man for wishing such a perverted thing.
"How ominous...!" Rouge opens her eyes wide and stares at the shadow that has just broken her crystal. More than anything, she can't stand having her occupational tools broken. She meditates and tries to send her force of will into the Power Stone.
"Take me there...!" When she opens her eyes, she is inside the floating castle that people have talked about. "I feel it ... the origin of the ominous shadow is here!".
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Even in the battle arena her graceful moves look like dancing more than fighting. She is mesmerizing when she wields fire as easily and naturally as her own arms and legs, putting the heat on any opponent who stands in her way. Though her normal attack and defense abilities are relatively low, Rouge's flame atacks have long range and inflict severe damage. Her speed and jumping abilities are top notch, making her easy to handle in the arena and able to avoid attacks with ease. Because she has long range Power Drives and powerful Power Fusion, she may be a top tier character. In Power Stone Collection, she unlocks the Crystal Ball.
Power Drives and Power Fusions[edit | edit source]
- Hellfire Sign: (Sigh of Hellfire in Power Stone 2 and Power Stone Collection).
- Dream Temptation: (removed in Power Stone 2)
- Fiery Trap (Power Fusion) : Rouge uses her fireball that hovers around her and slams it to the ground, creating pillars of fire. In the anime, Rouge calls this ability "Red Hot Trap".
- Secret Heaven: Rouge spins on one of her feet having hearts around her. If one of the hearts touch the opponent, he or she get dizzy and Rouge attacks with a 10-chain combo (removed in Power Stone 2).
- Summon Giant: Using the same buttons as the Secret Heaven while in the air, the fireball that looks like a miniature sun turns into a giant head, expelling fireballs from its mouth.
Other appearances[edit | edit source]
