Pupa Salgueiro is a breakdancing Capoeira expert featured in the cult 2D fighting game, Rage of the Dragons. She is considered a top-tier character in her home game, but is known for her goofy personality and terrible English skills. Few mugen authors have taken on making a mugen conversion of the character, with Jango's being generally considered the most definitive one, being a hybrid adaptation of her appearance in Rage of the Dragons with gameplay elements from Power Instinct: Matrimelee.
Pupa is able to mix up her approach very well. Able to zone well with Bencao, but also able to get in close and combo well, Pupa has the tools to answer just about any given situation. However, many of her attacks are unsafe on block, and she has significantly less health than the average fighter.
(The description is based on Jango's version unless noted)
- Nyankiryu created the first Pupa available for MUGEN in 2006 for the WinMUGEN build. As an older character, there are many technical issues including incorrect move behavior and improperly ripped sounds and sprites. However, she does feature hardcoded winquotes prior to MUGEN 1.0's standardized format for them.
- Ryo2005's Pupa is meant to be a mixture of both Matrimelee and Rage of the Dragons systems. However, most of the moves appear to be "guesswork" and make Pupa behave abnormally.
- Jango's version is also a combination of Matrimelee and Rage of the Dragon's systems. However, data was extracted from both of these games to ensure some level of accuracy, creating a sort of "best-of" version. Additionally, this version has multiple easter eggs and an improved palette.
