"Screw the foreplay, let's just do it!"

Shaniqua is a featured fighter and a playable character in Def Jam Fight for NY.


Shaniqua moved to New York to take an internship with a media company and never went home. The allure of the big city kept her both intrigued and busy. Last year she got involved with a local circuit fighter and was introduced to the underground scene, vicariously enjoying the fights until one night during a cat fight, she realized she could actually make money throwing people around the ring. Now she's busting tables at the Limit while trying to kick-start her fighting career. This girl has attitude and she will beat down any guy foolish enough to get in her way. You can find her in the Limit.

Def Jam Fight For NY[]

If the player loses the fight against Nyne at the Limit, Shaniqua approaches the player offering to help clean him up, in which Hero eccentrically accepted and leaves with her, leaving a shocked and disgusted Blaze watching the two leave the club.
