Black Widow (ブラック・ウィドー Burakku Uidō?) is a fighting game character and CWA wrestler from the Slam Masters series of wrestling games. She is the only playable female wrestler in the series and her stage is located in Hanover, Germany.
She's stated to sport a lean but muscular frame in a full-body costume, fooling opponents with her flexibility. In-game, her design is androgynous with a deep voice, and advertisements purposefully used neutral Japanese pronouns to leave it up in the air whether or not the character was male or female. Unlike most characters that turn red when "heated", her costume turns silver.
She is likely modeled after Mariko Yoshida, a female wrestler known for her flexibility, musculature, and full-body costume with a black widow spider motif.
Almost nothing is known about Black Widow's early life, other then that at one point, she was in a wrestling match against Yoko Harmageddon, which ended with Widow hurting and injuring Yoko's neck and waist, forcing the latter to officially retire from pro wrestling.
In Black Widow's ending in Ring of Destruction: Slam Masters II, she reveals herself to be very much female (and sports a very female voice) to the crowd. It's never stated exactly why she posed as she did in the game, though given that she is the only female wrestler, it's speculated that the CWA did not have their own women's division at the time during the events of Ring of Destruction.
- Her unique attack skill is the Frankensteiner.
- Due to space constraints in some points of the game such as the select screen, her name is shortened to B. Widow. Everywhere else, however, refers to her by her full name.
