I'm stronger, faster -- and thirsty. So thirsty for Amazon blood.

Injustice 2 - Cheetah Ending

Hungry for his blood, I prepared to claim Brainiac. But the alien, desperate to save his life, sputtered out an offer. Brainiac said that if I spared him, he'd deposit any of his collected beings I wanted on a world of my choosing. There I could pursue them at my leisure. So now I hunt, free from Wonder Woman's interference. With each kill, I glorify the Goddess. As for Brainiac? Of course I didn't abide our agreement. I'd never give up on killing him. A true huntress always catches her prey.

Costumes

Cheetah - Minerva's Curse

Cheetah is a human/cheetah hybrid, her body covered entirely in fur. To the right is the base skin for Cheetah, Minerva's Curse. She is wearing her default gear. The remainder of her costumes can be found on her gallery page.

Trivia

  • Her voice actress Erica Luttrell previously voiced her from JLA Adventures: Trapped in Time and LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham.
  • Cheetah is the only character to acknowledge Harley's hyenas Bud and Lou during match intro dialogue.
  • One of Cheetah's clash quotes to Catwoman, "Embrace your inner feline!", is ironic; in the episode "Tyger, Tyger" of Batman: The Animated Series, Selina did indeed do just that, but by force thanks to a crazy scientist.
  • Cheetah's intro quote to Black Canary in which shes says "I'll pick your feathers from my teeth" is very similar to "I'll pick your flesh from my teeth", an intro quote that Mileena says to Kenshi in Mortal Kombat X.
    • Interestingly enough, Cheetah also says "I will rend your flesh" to Green Arrow the same way Mileena says "I will rend your hide" to Johnny Cage in MKX.
    • Cheetah also says "I will rip out your throat" to Wonder Woman, the same exact line Mileena says to D'Vorah and Bo Rai Cho.
    • However, the two characters have not officially encountered each other yet.
