“Looked dead, didn’t I? Well, I wasn’t. But it wasn’t from lack of trying, I can tell you that. Actually Bill’s last bullet put me in a coma–a coma I was to lie in for four years. When I woke up, I went on what the movie advertisements refer to as…’A roaring rampage of revenge.’ I roared and I rampaged, and I got bloody satisfaction. I’ve killed a hell of a lot of people to get to this point, but I have only one more. The last one. The one I’m driving to right now. The only one left. And when I arrive at my destination, I am gonna kill Bill.”–Beatrix

Beatrix Michelle Kiddo, also known as “The Bride”, is the main protagonist of the Kill Bill series.

She is the daughter of Marc and Michelle Kiddo and the romantic partner of Bill. Beatrix was once a member of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad and her code-name was Black Mamba.

After her premature retirement from her assassination career upon becoming pregnant, Beatrix left the squad to escape the life of an assassin and start a new one for her unborn daughter. However, Beatrix’s friends and her fiance were murdered at the marriage rehearsal. But Beatrix herself was shot in the head and put into a four-year coma, during which B.B. Kiddo was delivered successfully.

Once she woke up from her coma, Beatrix plotted her deadly vengeance against all members of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad, including Bill himself, killing them all one-by-one and killing anyone who stood in her way. She then drove away with her daughter B.B. in tow.

Beatrix is a highly capable fighter, having been trained by both Bill and Pai Mei. She managed to overpower fellow assassins such as Vernita Green with her bare hands and hold her own against Elle Driver, gaining the upper hand at one point. Before being trained by Pai Mei in Hung Gar Kung Fu, she had already mastered two kung-fu styles (Tiger and Crane) and, how she herself implied, was able to break wood panels. Under the tutelage of the Chinese master, she learned Snake Style kung-fu and other techniques requiring physical strength and agility. She also learned the Three-Inch Punch, which she used to punch through a wood coffin. She has the ability to rapidly snatch eyes out and can perform the Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique. The Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique was described as “Quite simply, the deadliest blow in all of martial arts. He hits you with his fingertips at 5 different pressure points on your body, and then let’s you walk away. But once you’ve taken five steps your heart explodes inside your body and you fall to the floor, dead.”

Beatrix was also seen resorting to chokeholds.

In combat, she is eager to attack the enemy’s weak spots, demonstrating excellent reflexes and accuracy. Her fighting method before Pai Mei’s teaching was limited to her kung fu, but after the coma she displayed quick, strong and brutal blows much more effectively. This includes a wide array of moves mutated from Jeet Kune Do.
