Damnd (ダムド Damudo?), is a character from the Final Fight series. He is a member of the Mad Gear Gang and the boss of the first stage of Final Fight, Metro City's Slum Area. He was also known as "Thrasher" in the western localisation of the original Final Fight.



Damnd is a large Afro-Caribbean man (from the Dominican Republic) with white dreadlocks, each ending in a number of blue beads. He wears a waistcoat, blue sunglasses, turned-down boots and various jewellery. He is always seen with a large grin on his face.


Final Fight

Damnd was a top lieutenant in Belger's Mad Gear Gang, and was in control of the gang's information network, including having intel from the local police and the FBI.[1] When Mayor Haggar refused to accept kickbacks and let the gang do as it pleased, Damnd kidnapped the mayor's daughter Jessica and phoned him, telling him to turn on the TV. When Haggar did so, he saw that Damnd was on air, laughing maniacally as he broadcasted images of the kidnapped Jessica and telling Haggar to be reasonable. Haggar refused their ultimatum and he went with Cody and Guy to the slums of Metro City to rescue her. Soon Cody found Damnd with Jessica in the Slum Area. Damnd retreated while his cronies held Cody and Guy at bay, and though Cody soon caught up to him, Damnd had by then successfully passed Jessica on to accomplices, and she was nowhere to be found. Despite initially getting the jump on Cody, the street fighter beat him senseless to get information on Jessica's whereabouts.

Fighting style

Despite his size, strength and agility, Damnd is a cowardly fighter who often retreats to a perch on a wall and whistles for reinforcements. When his reinforcements prove insufficient, he leaps from his perch and attempts to land on his opponent. Damnd will also occasionally take a moment to laugh at the hero. Aside from this, Damnd's fighting style is that of the typical Mad Gear punk.
