"I got you...". - Solo (from Strider)
Solo (ソロ Soro) is a recurring enemy, appearing in all versions of the first Strider coin-op as well as both its sequels.
A hired assassin and bounty hunter, Solo's body is fitted with a reinforced power armor that grants him free-flying capabilities and a speed boost that makes him hard to catch by ordinary human eyes. His speed level is such that he leaves after-images as he moves around. His weapon of choice are two: a large cannon-like weapon in his left hand, and a gun in his right one. His left hand weapon is a flamethrower with a built-in missile launcher on top. He later gets an upgraded form and a new weapon in the form of energy rings he can create and throw at his enemies.
Solo is a ruthless and dangerous killer, and considers himself Strider Hiryuu's rival. He's, however, not quite on Hiryuu's level of skill or ability.
