Cycloid Beta is one of the Cycloids, a pair of secret characters from Street Fighter EX. Cycloid-β (Cycloid Beta) is a blue 3D-model of a human male with no facial features, and Cycloid-γ (Cycloid Gamma), is similar to Beta but resembles a wireframe model. Both of the cycloids use attacks borrowed from other characters in SFEX. Their origins are unknown.

Cycloid-β borrows attacks from a variety of characters, such as: Ryu, Akuma, Allen, Kairi, Chun-Li, Skullomania, Garuda, Blair, Pullum and Doctrine Dark. In Street Fighter EX 3, the Cycloids were replaced with the character Ace who has access to all character moves as well.

The Cycloids were pretty cool 'extra secret' hidden unlockable characters in Street Fighter EX... their main draw is obviously that they share moves from many other fighters in the game. Besides showing off fairly "visually interesting" character models for a PS1 game, there's obviously not a whole lot to their designs.

Overlooking their purpose of simply showing off the graphics engine... there was something else likeable about the Cycloids. Are they aliens? Are they our friends? We as the player have so many questions. That's a good thing for an unlockable fighter, btw! Adds hype. Also, the game's well done animation itself was able to provide the Cycloids with a bit of personality (where they clearly lack it). Also, I think "Cycloid" is a pretty cool word and name for a character. Both of the Cycloids even had their own unique endings in SFEX... gotta give Capcom bonus points there!
