Baby Bonnie Hood (ベビー・ボニー・フッド Bebī bonī fuddo), also known as B.B. Hood (B.B.フッド B. B. Fuddo) and alternatively as Bulleta (バレッタ Baretta) in Japan, is a character who first appears in Vampire Savior and is inspired by Little Red Riding Hood. Outside the Darkstalkers series, she also appeared in Capcom's Cannon Spike and Marvel vs. Capcom 2.


Many supernatural beings from Makai have entered the human realm. Many of these supernatural beings are considered by people to be of high value or sources of decorative items; materials that don't exist in the human world (such as blood and fluids from the internal organs), can be used for research on biological weapons and the like. The demand for these are very high. The trade of the Darkhunter was created to meet the demands of these clients.

These particular hunters track down the supernatural and collect a reward depending on the creature that they hunt. The risks are very high, but so are the rewards. To fight against these Darkstalkers, merely having a fit body, martial arts skills, and firearms are not enough. It is possible for a Class C creature to defeat an entire army of first class elite supernatural beings. A powerful mind and the thrill of the hunt is also needed to keep one self from going on. A powerful soul, and one as steeped in darkness like those of Makai is needed so that they are not affected by the aura that the supernatural of Makai give off[2].

Several hundred Darkhunters of varied skill are said to exist in the realm of Makai. Some of these hunters can often hunt a wild beast from Makai, let alone a Darkstalker. Among these hunters, B. B. Hood is a Special S-Class Hunter. Her skills of hunting are so amazing that even Jedah himself considered her worthy as a Darkstalker, and pulled her into the Majigen as a worthy soul. Her stare alone can cause the lower ranking Darkstalkers to be filled with fear, and she is able to hunt many kinds of creatures. It would be fair to say that she was born to be a hunter.

When she was pulled into the Majigen by Jedah, she simply looked around and said, "Haha, they're all mine... It's been a long time since a job this big."

The Darkhunter occupation has grown considerably, though it has only started within the last year. This occupation is quite different from what Donovan, a half-human, half-supernatural, does out of fate.


Baby Bonnie Hood is a thrill seeker who enjoys the hunt, she will search out for many creatures to hunt, even to the point of doing it for the sport of the hunt rather than the pursuit for money. She hunts solely for the sport and personal gain, while Donovan hunts to find meaning in his existence. As a profit-seeking Darkhunter, she intentionally pretends to act like a defenseless girl as a way to trick her prey in order for them to get closer to her, and many of her hunting skills are stabbing her opponents with weapons such as knives and using guns for shooting.

Despite the ruthlessness, outside the Darkhunter occupation, she is very well capable of being civil, and looks after her grandmother, demonstrating her degree of self-control and humanity in preventing the taint of Makai from corrupting her mind.


  • Attending the conference Hunters Guild of the Northern European Alpine Branch to secure part of the total profit, interchanging with the other Hunters is necessary.
  • Obtaining weapons and ammunition through illegal means. A first class job requires first class materials.
  • Maintaining portable weapons at home. To every Hunter, skipping this is suicidal.
  • Making gunpowder mixtures for mines. Continuously researching is the sign of a professional.
  • Going to town to buy food and clothing, and going to the house of her grandmother, Margaret (マーガレット),[3] to do errands.
  • Training for controlled shooting, such as shooting 50 targets while performing a 100 m (328 ft) dash. Basic training is the foundation for advanced skill. One must not forget to always return to the basics.
  • Using the satellite Catastrophe, a camouflaged hunting satellite, to retrieve information on Darkstalkers. Information gathering is the key to the Hunting business. One must use any means possible to eliminate the target.
  • Enter the Dark Hunting Grand Prix held twice a year. A target is decided upon and they compete to see who can hunt it down first. This is a competition for the Hunters to test their own skills, but not all Hunters compete in this tournament.

Her two-year-old pet dog's name is Harry (ハリー).[4] Although Harry sits along side B.B.Hood in battle, he cowers in fear as she fires her various weapons. When B.B. Hood loses in battle, he runs to her side and howls. The two mercenaries who appear in Beautiful Hunting are John and Arthur (ジョンとアーサー).[4] They use a submachine gun and rifle. The man who appears in one of B.B. Hood's winning poses is simply named Mr. K.[5]

About Little Red Riding Hood

The classic fairy tale of Little Red Riding Hood focuses on a young girl who travels to bring a basket of food to her Grandmother's house. However, she is stalked by the infamous Big Bad Wolf, who conceives a plan to devour the girl: he tricks the girl into picking flowers for her grandmother and then makes it to Grandma's house, where he then ambushes and devours the old woman whole. He then dresses up in Grandma's night gown and waits for the girl to arrive. When she does, she is amazed of how her "Grandma" appears different, remarking of how big her eyes, ears and teeth are. The wolf then replies how they are all the better to see, hear and ultimately eat her with, shedding off his disguise and then eats the girl. But as the wolf sleeps, the woodsman arrives and cuts open the wolf's stomach, freeing the girl and her grandmother, and then fills it back up with stones. The wolf awakens and attempts to flee, but the stones cause him to collapse and die.

  • Darkstalkers comics by Udon, B.B.Hood appears in a side story, "The Silver Necklace," in issue 6. She also appears on an alternate cover for this issue.


  • B.B. Hood's design is based on the title character of "Little Red Riding Hood", and is possibly inspired by the James Thurber and Roald Dahl versions of the story, both of which feature the titular character fatally shooting the wolf, going as far as making a coat out of him in the Dahl variant. She's also been stated to represent the worst qualities of humanity, namely avarice and violence; Akiman stated in his design notes that every Darkstalkers character is inspired by something in fantasy, myth and horror, but when creating B.B. Hood, he wanted to do something a little more sinister. Rather than be based off of an archetype or myth, she's inspired by the frightening qualities of the human race itself.
  • Her designation as a Special S-Class Hunter may be a reference to the Strider series, where Strider Hiryu is ranked as an elite Special A-Class, a ranking reserved only for the handful best Striders.
  • Lord Raptor has a special intro when opposing B.B.Hood; Le Malta will pop out with a heart bulging from his eye only to be kicked by Lord Raptor.
  • In some early concept art, B.B. Hood had a spiked ball in her basket; a weapon which was not used in the final game but a mace with a spike ball at the tip can be seen in her basket when she gets electrocuted. She also wore a long-sleeved pink blouse. The original idea was for her to just be a werewolf hunter before she became a full on darkhunter. She seems to have the least changes from her concepts to final versions compared to most characters.
  • One of the concepts for Anita had her as someone who would uses multiple weapons in combat, such as a gun, along with an appearance that looked either more western or like the typical look of a woman in a fairytale setting. The idea of Anita using multiple weapons was scrapped cause they thought she’d be too similar to Hsien-Ko. These traits seem to have been moved onto B.B. Hood.
  • In the Dead Rising 3 downloadable content pack Super Ultra Dead Rising 3′ Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX + α, a B.B. Hood cosplay is available for Frank West.
  • During Midnight Bliss, B.B. Hood ages significantly into a tall adult waitress which is a subservient role. This is a contrast to B.B. Hood's young but rebellious and domineering self.
  • Her official Japanese bio narrows her origin down to "a certain Nordic country" (北欧某国 / hokuō bōkoku, with 'hokuō' referring to Scandinavia in Japanese) but doesn't get more specific than that.
  • In the official strategy guide for Darkstalkers: Jedah's Damnation by GameFan Books, B.B. Hood's country of origin is incorrectly given as USA; her date of birth, never given in any other publications, is claimed to be 1979. Her height is also claimed at 170 cm (5'7 feet).
  • Baby Bonnie Hood is voiced by Miyuki Matsushita, who also originally voiced Q-Bee.
  • She is the only villain in Vampire Savior to have no major plot relevancy.
