Mika's real name is Mika Nanakawa, and she is a professional wrestler trained by the big, domineering, shinai-sporting, golf cart-riding, Yoko Harmegeddon. The very rich Karin Kanzuki is Mika's sponsor.
Mika's goal is to be "Star of the Ring." To try to accomplish this, Mika decided she would travel abroad and battle famous street fighters even before she made her official debut. During that time, she met Zangief, a wrestler she is a huge fan of. Zangief inspired her as a pro wrestler to train hard for the next time they meet.
Some of Mika's special attacks are rather comical. In her Flying Peach and Shooting Peach specials, she flings herself into her opponent, buttocks-first and she mostly falls on it and has to rub it due to recoil. For her opening taunt and Beach Special super combo, she uses the top turnbuckle of a wrestling ring that appears from the side of the screen. The sudden appearance of a turnbuckle is amusingly redundant when Mika is fighting on her own stage at a beachside wrestling ring.
On the cover of a Japanese magazine called Capcom Secret File, Mika is teamed up with a black haired female wrestler named Yamato Nadeshiko (actually the Japanese concept of the "perfect" woman), who works for the same wrestling organization as Mika. She is sometimes her tag team partner.
