Yellow Iris with Fin

Yellow Iris, known as Yellow Beast (イエロー・ビースト Ierō Bīsuto?) in Japan, is the codename for a cat-like character introduced in the Capcom arcade beat 'em up game Battle Circuit.


Diana Martines is a part-time fashion model whose feral appearance gives her access to a number of clawing and agility-based techniques. She is also skilled with a whip, and is accompanied by her pet fox "Fin". Her battle download allows her to hasten the entire party, drastically improving the attack speed of all party members for a limited time.


Yellow Iris can dazzle opponents with her Crystal Rose move, perform cartwheel kicks, claw swipe enemies in the face with her Feline Barrage attack, or charge up her pet fox Fin and use him like a torpedo. He charges out and briefly attacks all enemies on the screen.

Other appearances[]


  • Considering the release date of Battle Circuit and her being shown with (or as a skin for) Felicia, Iris likely is at least partially inspired by Felicia from Darkstalkers, which came out a few years before.
    • It is even possible that Yellow Iris is directly inspired by one of Felicia's concept designs as it is almost the same except for minor color differences and having a more cat-like appearance.
