Floyd is an original protagonist character making his debut as a heavy hitting fighter with cybernetic arms. His mechanical arms are a gift from Streets of Rage 3 cyborg scientist character Dr. Gilbert Zan, which is his tie to SoR series.

Though his movements and health recovery period is slower than others, he has the longest reach among all five. Aside from shocking, smashing and throwing bad guys, his arm cannon can deal serious damage with a powerful blast.
