Piranha's role in the plot of Jet Set Radio is minimal. She only appears as a rival at the garage, challenging the GG's to copy some of her moves in Shibuya-cho. When one of them completes these challenges, she joins the gang, and becomes a playable character.
From this point onwards, Piranha can be seen dancing near the middle of the garage on the character select screen.
Piranha is a dark skinned and rather curvy girl. She is seen wearing a white top with short sleeves, which is very low cut to the point of being open down to below her chest, and also bares her midriff. It has two red stars across the front and a larger one on the back, centered between her shoulder blades. Completing her outfit are white tight fitting bell bottomed white pants, with more red stars at the ankles. Her shoulder-length, dark brown hair sticks out in what appear to be thick braids from behind red tinted goggles, placed above her forehead. Finally, she wears bright green gloves with dark green/gray cuffs, and her skates are two toned grey, with bright yellow frame rails, and grey wheels.
