Welcome to my web.

— Sadira's intro quote

Sadira, a Persian name which means "Dreamy", is a mysterious female fighter. She was the first new character revealed for the first season of Killer Instinct 2013. She is also the first female character added to the current roster.


Appearance Edit

Sadira is extremely pale, she has long black hair and her eyes are also notably and unnaturally glowing yellow. Sadira wears a mulberry-colored outfit with a hood and a decorative mask. She appears to be wearing ripped stockings on her legs. In general, her clothing appears to be of a Persian or Arabian design, perhaps hinting at her nationality. She has bladed gauntlets with two talons protruding from the knuckles.

Personality Edit

As lethal as she is intelligent, Sadira studies her foes for weaknesses and strikes only when victory is assured.

— Sadira's story mode description

She has a bit of a hidden temper which ignites once bothered enough.

Main article: Assassin's Cave

During an Ultra Combo, the cave begins to crumble as the nest of rocks fall down, causing a giant tarantula to drop from the top of the cave.

Trivia: During the slow music due to characters not moving, the samples from the Main Theme will play.

Endings Edit

Spare Jago, ULTRA Fulgore:

Sadira savors victory against all who opposed her. Glacius' alien power source has been secured and ARIA believes it is strong enough to rip open a path through space itself. What is at the other end of that path, no one can guess.

Spare Fulgore, ULTRA Jago:

Secrecy has long been Sadira's greatest weapon, but now, she has been dragged from the shadows to become a puppet for ARIA. She has won riches beyond imagination, but the price of her newfound wealth may be too great, and the ultimate prize too small.

ULTRA Both Jago and Fulgore:

Long ago, Sadira abandoned her humanity to an unending quest for wealth and power. Now, allied with ARIA, she has both. Abandoning her life lived in secret, she vows to extend her network of assassins into one that will blanket and terrorize the globe.
