Jeanne D'Arc (ジャンヌ・ダルク), formerly named and also known as Janne D'Arc, is an original character from the World Heroes series.

She is voiced by Keiko Tani in SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy.

Personality

Aware of her fighting prowess and own beauty, Jeanne won't back down from insulting her opponents if she judges them weak. However, she also desires to find a man suitable for her.

Powers

  • Fire Bird - Jeanne can release a projectile that looks like a bird made of fire from her sword.
  • Energy Attacks - Jeanne can fuel her slashing attacks with energy.

Fighting Style

Jeanne uses a type of swordsmanship that is not based on French fencing. Her sword can also transform into a chain whip, extending its reach.

Trivia

  • Jeanne is based on the real-life French national heroine, Joan of Arc. While Jeanne is cocky, Joan was virtuous.
    • As a reference to Joan, her hair will go bald after being defeated in her own Deathmatch stage.
  • Jeanne is the first fighting game character to use a whip sword, followed by Ivy of Bandai Namco's Soulcalibur series.
  • In the Japanese version of World Heroes Perfect, Jack's win quote reveals that she's a virgin. He comments on her blood tasting like one. This is another reference to Joan of Arc.
  • Though rendered as "Janne" through the entire World Heroes series, her name is apparently supposed to be "Jeanne", hence the change in SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy.
