Rebecca Welsh (or simply "Becky") is a playable character in both the original Rumble Roses in 2004 and sequel Rumble Roses XX in 2006.

She fights under the moniker of "The Rumble Bunny". Her Japanese voice actress is Hitomi Nabatame. She was dubbed by Peggy Woo in the first game (who also provided her singing voice during her intro), with Kate Higgins voicing her in the sequel (although Peggy Woo did the singing for the character in the game).[1][2][3]

Becky can be unlocked in the first Rumble Roses by completing Candy Cane's story-line or through the Vow system. In Rumble Roses XX she emerges after Candy Cane is defeated by Miss Spencer ten times without loosing) in one-on-one matches.


"My teacher convinced me to return to school. Now I'm really into it... I'm in the prime of my youth! And to add another extra-curricular [activity] to my record, I joined the cheerleading squad. This outfit is ridiculous, but I suppose it is what it is! I've turned over a new leaf! ...I'm going to make these the best times of my life! And I'm gonna make you sweat!"


Rebecka Welsh is the Babyface alter-ego of Candy Cane. More specifically, Becky could be viewed as an extremely idealized version of the girl. She's happy, bursting with enthusiasm, as well as being academically successful and popular in school. Put another way: Becky is what Candy Cane could be with a nurturing environment and the support of the people around her (such as Miss Spencer).

Becky Spazzing Out

Becky credits her Face-turn to Miss Spencer, who convinced her to return to school. Given how happy and successful she now is, it's likely that he transformation happened after winning the Tournament. She explains that she's now "busy with studying and wrestling." She also joined the school's Cheerleading Squad, apparently taking it to heart and basing her new wrestling persona around it. She continues to wrestle, and enjoys in-wring friendships with both Miss Spencer and Yasha.[5]

While not an official tag-team in the second game, Becky and Yasha's partnership is so good that the two have unique moves that only they can perform together.


In contrast with her alter-ego, Becky is cheerful, perky, and outgoing. She has fully embraced her new Babyface persona- eager to make friends and prove herself to others. Her dramatic transformation has given her strong sense of right and wrong, and allowed her to ally herself with the similar-minded Yasha.

Becky has come to admire Miss Spencer, remarking in the first game (during the interview) that Spencer is the person she most wants to spend time with. She's also very happy now in school: "...I'm really into it, busy with studying and wrestling. I'm in the prime of my youth!" She even joined the school's cheerleading squad, explaining to the interviewer "I joined the cheerleading squad. This outfit is ridiculous, but I suppose it is what it is! I've turned over a new leaf! ...I'm going to make these the best times of my life!"

Becky and her crew hits the ramp!

Her new found positivite outlook is also reflected in her antics, both in and out of the wring. The anger and rage that her previous self showed has largely melted away. Though she prefers not to dwell on her past, and at times seems to still be adjusting to her new relationship with Miss Spencer. Although, in her ending scene Becky suddenly slaps away Miss Spencer's hand. Declaring: "I'm not cut out for this! To hell with school! I am who I am..." Becky then makes a punching motion toward the camera as it freezes on her ending. It's unclear if shes still adjusting, or if she's reverting back to her alter ego once again.

Becky perhaps most shows her new enthusiasm in her arrivals. She shows up to high-energy music, dressed in her cheerleading outfit and and flanked by two other girls. Both her regular and Super Star introductions spotlight her high-flying gymnastic and cheerleading moves, though her Super Star intro also showcases her doing baton dancing in the wring. In both games, Becky provides the vocals for her intro.

In XX alongside the drastic change in look Becky seems to be far less "girly" and bubbly compared to her PS2 counterpart. While she is still usually nice and friendly she sounds notably more aggressive in the ring. She also uses words such as "ass" when angered and calls the player "stupid" when she is angry and what she had to do as a penalty in a queens game. Becky also does some underhanded tactics in the ring such as tickle her opponent and rakes their eyes in some attack sequences. It is possible that this version of Becky was supposed to be the result of her PS2 ending where she doesn't quite return to being Candy Cane but can channel her alter ego more frequently when she is pushed into it.


Becky Norm v1.0.jpg

Beck has dirty-blond hair, blue eyes, and notably pale skin (even more so than her alter-ego). Because she has such a fair complexion, her makeup is much more subdued now- including pale pink lipstick and blush. Though for obvious reasons, she doesn't wear any jewelry.

Becky still keeps her hair up in collar-length twin ponytails- just as her previous incarnation had done. Her also still keeps her bangs long in the front, the ends being level with her eyebrows. She still has a slender figure (with smaller breasts and tapered hips). As a cheerleader and performer, there is much more emphasis on her overall figure and muscle tone.

Her regular in-wring costume is a cheerleading outfit. It includes a fairly typical tight white and orange cheerleading tank top; with white, cinnamon and orange trim running along the edges. He name "BECKY" is written across the front, in large bright blue letters with white and orange outlines. She also wears an orange pleated cheerleading skirt, with a white and cinnamon trim on the fringe and hemline. The outfit does a good job of showing off her legs and her stomach, while being more practical.

As a cheerleader, Becky wears large elbow and knee pads- solid white, with a lot of visible padding. However, she doesn't wear gloves when fighting... Making her one of the few girls who wrestles barehanded in matches (the others being Makoto and Aigle). Instead of boots or martial arts footware, she wears solid white high-top athletic shoes (that lace up in the front). She also wears thick white socks that stop below her calves.

Super Star Becky

When Becky wins enough matches to gain at least 80% popularity, her Super Star outfit is unlocked. Unlike the fairly subdued costume she normally wears, this outfit is extremely flashy and stylized... Possibly taking inspiration from the UK Glam Rock fashion of the 1970s. Also, both the bright and guady colors and her performance are somewhat similar to the characters in the 1980s cartoon series "Jem and The Holograms".[6][7]

Becky's ponytails are now held by blue star-shaped hair-ties. A long gold segmented earring hangs down from her right ear, with a gold star fixed to the end of it. She wears a pale metallic blue and white choker around her neck, complete with a gold broach fixed to it- also in the shape of a star. Her left eye has shiny silvery-blue paint (with a dark blue edge) around it, done in the shape of a starburst. She has light metallic blue and gold arm bands over the lower halves of her forearms.

The central part of the outfit is a shiny metallic aquamarine one-piece, with a pair of tight bright orange (spandex?) shorts visible below the base. It has a low back, while narrow straps loop aroun the neck and the front plunges down to show off a fair amount of her cleavage. The garment has white, gold, and teal stars dispersed across it. "Becky" is written diagonally across the front (SW to NE) in bright red letters, with white and dark blue outlines. And a bronze-colored shooting star in her lift hip. The bottom few inches is a shiny white color, with devides in it.

The final parts of the outfit includes a pair white knee pads with bright white stars on them. Becky also wears knee-hair boots (the same bright shade of white as the knee pads), with zips running up the inner sides. Aquamarine padding runs down the back of the boots- until it merges into the matching large aquamarine wedge heals and treds.

Becky posing at the beach

When she's taking part in Queen's Matches (or Mad Mud Matches, in the first game), Becky wears a showy bikini-style two-piece. She also wears a pair of dark cut-off jean shorts and a sandals.

Interestingly, her swimsuit is more revealing then tha one worn by her alter-ego. Now outside and on the beach, her pale skin is especially noticeable the strong sunlight.

Both the top and (partially visible) bottom are shiny silver, with dark red edges and straps. The straps of the bikini top tie around her neck and behind her back. Most of the bottom (aside from the straps) is covered by the pair of shorts that she wears to her matches, which stop just below her backside. Aside from this, she also wears a standard-looking pair of sandals to the wring as well.

Becky is in fact one of only two of the fighters in the game to wear something over her bikini bottom (the other person being Sgt. Clemets, who also wears a pair of similar-looking jean short shorts over hers).

Fighting Style[]

Becky's acrobatic style allows her to deliver flashy moves

Becky's fighting style is somewhat similar to her alter-ego's, but with much less of the focus on humiliation build-up and fouls. Instead, her focus in more on fast striking and grappling. Her moves are also have a very acrobatic style to them and require some degree of planning to perform- with many of her striking attacks having a fairly specific range to them. Her running speed is third only to Lady X Subsistance and Benikage.

Becky dropping Reiko to the mat

Because of this, if one of her elaborate attacks fails to make contact, she can end up veering off course and being left exposed to the counter-attacks of her opponent. Because of her small size, Becky is also weak against the strikes and submissions of strength-based fighters. Because of her limited physical strength, much of her focus is on inflicting damage and not on performing submission holds. Despite these limitations, if used correctly, she can still be a very strong fighter.

Her grapples are quite effective, and she is good at performing pins. These two factors can make her a challenging opponent in matches. Becky is best suited to fighting in regular match types, as she's at a disadvantage in Street Fights and Humiliation Matches. Overall Becky can be considered a "Fragile Speedster" style of characters with her ability to take hits just barely above Makoto and Benikage's but still being frailer than the "default" Reiko and opponents getting a good amount of meter per hit against with her. This makes her especially weak against attacks that could be chained together such as Special Lesson or weapon Lethals that build meter while hitting her as Becky will give more per hit to her opponent which in turn will allow them to hit Becky with more consecutive attacks than most other Roses.

In a way while Benikage is the game's "fastest" Rose with the fastest movement Becky instead is the most agile. Her actions generally being among the fastest and least girly such as climbing to the top turnbuckle, exiting and entering the ring and other non shared among the Roses actions Becky performing them much faster than the others. Somewhat fittingly Becky and Benikage both are the game's more fragile Roses as a trade.

  • Becky's anthem B.E.C.K.Y. involved the most contributors and production staff. Konami Sound Producer Yuichi Asami (credited as "U1-Asami") composed it and co-wrote the lyrics with the Producer Akari Uchida. The vocals were done by Peggy Woo in the first game. The first game's manual credits the "Cheerleading" (presumably the motion-capture work) to a group called the "Konami TYO Girls Rumble Roses".[8][9]

    Unusually, Becky's costume changed dramatically between the two games, with her cheerleading outfit going from blue to orange. She also wore Candy Cane's Heart Pendant (as shown in the picture) in the first game.
  • In both games, Becky is one of only three unlockable Babyfaces, since she started out as a Heel. In the second game, she is one of only three alter-egos that is unlocked under special circumstances. In both cases, the other two are Yasha and Noble Rose.
  • Rebecka Welsh always fights her matches under a stage name (Candy Cane/Becky), despite the fact that her real name has always been commonly known. The only other character to do this is Reiko's older sister Fujiko Hinomoto (aka. Evil Rose/Noble Rose).
  • Her appearence is somewhat identicle to Juliet Starling, the protagonist of the game Lollipop Chainsaw. As both are blond, busty, and are Cheerleaders.
