Cocatrix is a new character introduced in Metal Slug Attack.
Cocatrix is the ringmaster of the Mirage Circus, a traveling troupe that puts on shows and does mercenary work from time to time. She is extremely talented and intelligent, knowing a fair amount in mechanical engineering, electronics, bioengineering, pharmacology and psychology, making the impossible possible.
She wears magicians' attire with a lizard tail as a result of her skills, along with a chicken staff. In battle, she uses her chicken staff to launch a snake at enemies, while her hat also doubles as a magical weapon that engulfs enemies in numerous hands and feet. Her expertise in bioengineering also makes them highly toxic and capable of spreading through enemies. She can also "separate" her legs and "grow" a new pair, sending the detached legs running into hostiles.
She also has a habit of wanting stimulating feelings and often heads to the battlefield to enjoy them, without regard to her own safety.
First appearing in "Shakety Empty", Cocatrix and her troupe are performing at a town when Caroline sneaks backstage and causes havoc after seeing a pendulum. Hearing the commotion, she and Bunny realize that Caroline is with an army and manage to trick her into signing a contract that would allow them to claim some new weapons. Trailing Caroline back to the base, Cocatrix and the others end up fighting the Ptolemaic Army, but are able to escape with various spoils of war.
- Her special attack, Hecatonchires Symphoniae, is a reference to the Hecatonchires, beings in Greek lore who possess a hundred heads and fifty hands. The attack itself however, consists of feet and hands.
