Janne D'Arc

She's the holy savior of France, Janne D'Arc, and she has a bad tude. She is a skilled fencer and dislikes "rough guys." She continues to fight with her trusty blade, the "Bastard Buster." She has but one wish: to meet a man stronger than she is who will marry her, but she can't so she must wait. She is based off of Joan D'Arc or "Joan of Ark."

Although Janne D' Arc was a female knight in a fighting game, before Charlotte Colde, I found Charlotte to be a more interesting and likeable character design. However, Janne deserves some credit. Although Janne is a rather basic design, she actually uses a sword that can into a whip before Ivy Valentine (another character I love). Know your roots! Janne even has a few of the same attacks as Ivy. On the flipside, Ivy's moveset took the concept of this weapon eons farther than Janne ever could in the 2D realm.

To her credit, Janne was still an innovator to the "female knight" archetype of fighting games. Naturally, she's a likeable design... and she's probably one of the coolest characters from World Heroes.
