The girls are the personified human versions of the three main animals that appear in Professor Genki's Super Ethical Reality Climax. Their main purpose is to boost the show's sex appeal but they are also credited with creating the new activities in Genkibowl VII.
Each girl takes on the persona of an animal that appears in PGSERC and, as such, dresses and acts accordingly. The appearance of the Genki Girls in the Tim & Eric promo are nearly identical to their artwork with only a few minor exceptions, most notably their hairstyle.
The first Genki Girl appeared in the trailer for Professor Genki's Hyper Ordinary Pre-Order Pack, giggling at the sight of the "ultra tight" stunt suit. Though her appearance was minor and only served to portray a stereotypical eccentric Japanese girl she later went on to become the character known as Sexy Kitten.
The rest of the Genki Girls later made their official debut in the live action Tim & Eric Professor Genki promo for Saints Row: The Third. It was in this incarnation where the girls were first referred to as the "Genki Girls" and is where Sexy Kitten was given a name.
Tim & Eric PromoEdit
The Genki Girls debuted in the live-action Tim & Eric promo. They were called upon the stage at the beginning of the show accompanied by their name, a piece of artwork of their character as well as the cartoon head of the animal they were based on. The girls stood on the sidelines, next to three poles corresponding to the color of clothing they wore, for the majority of the show and occasionally either cheered or jeered at the contestants. After a commercial break the girls were called out to lead a "Tall Cat Parade" where they walked tall dogs, dressed as cats, along a catwalk across the stage. Later in the show, Sad Panda aided General Cho (a parody of Colonel Sanders) by wheeling his oxygen tank onto the set and then assisted the other girls with dumping out buckets of rotten chicken for the final challenge. The show ended with the girls leading another Tall Cat Parade.
The Genki Girls play an important role in the DLC Genkibowl VII as each girl was responsible for creating the new activities that appear in the game. The player can even unlock each of the girls as homies. By completing both instances of either Apocalypse Genki (Angry Tiger), Sexy Kitten Yarngasm (Sexy Kitten), or Sad Panda Skyblazing (Sad Panda), the corresponding Genki Girl will be unlocked. The player can also unlock mascot heads of the animals the girls are based on in a similar fashion. The Genki Girls also appear during the closing ceremony of Genkibowl VII. Two of them applaud the player while Angry Tiger hands over a trophy.
Angry Tiger is based off the angry one-eyed tiger that appears on the "Ethical" targets that pop up in the show. It is said by Genki host Bobby that Angry Tiger has 'put her own twist' on the Professor Genki Super Ethical Reality Climax course,which is named Apocalypse Genki, and a script written by Angry Tiger is later read by Tammi Toliver with somewhat captivating expression.She has ginger-colored hair, tanned skin and is dressed in a tiger-stripe bikini, blue tube socks, a pair of neon-green tiger-striped legwarmers as well as matching paws and ears. She also has an eye patch over her left eye as well as a green tiger tail attached to her posterior. Her in-game appearance is identical to her artwork yet her hair style and skin tone in her live-action portrayal is slightly different. Unsurprisingly, Angry Tiger is known to have an extremely aggressive personality, as in one point during the second instance of Apocalypse Genki she was reported to have stabbed a stagehand, in the neck, with the leg of a chair just because he accidentally spilled coffee on her. Her catchphrase is "Angry Tiger fury!"
Sad Panda is based off the panda that appears on the "Unethical" targets as well as whenever the player is burned, electrocuted or otherwise put through misery. She has pale skin, wears a black top along with white briefs, fishnet stockings, as well as a set of blue leg warmers, ears, paws, and a cotton ball tail. Her hair is blue in both incarnations. As her name suggests, she is constantly sad and suffers from depression. One of the commentators of Sad Panda Skyblazing suggests she feels this way because her name is synonymous with "Unethical" or the fact that people wish to avoid her much in the same way the player wishes to avoid hitting the panda target. Her catchphrase is "Sad Panda power!"
Sad Panda is the only girl with an additional line of dialog other than her catchphrase. Upon dismissing her from your party she will utter the phrase "Super sad!"
In Saints Row 2, there store in Little Shanghai named "Sad Panda", which has an animated neon sign of a crying panda. There is another Sad Panda store on the upper level of Rounds Square Shopping Center's exterior.
Sexy Kitten is based on the health target. A cartoon head of the animal version of Sexy Kitten was featured in the Tim & Eric promo while a slightly different version was used in-game. The human Sexy Kitten wears a pink bikini-top with a matching plaid skirt. She has tube socks as well as a set of pink leg warmers, paws, ears, tail, and a pair of black, thick rimmed glasses. Her hair is blonde in-game while it is blonde with pink streaks in the Tim & Eric promo. Not much else is known about her other than that she is the namesake of the Sexy Kitten Yarngasm activity and that she participated in the creation of the enormous yarn ball used in the event. Her catchphrase is "Sexy Kitten time!"
- At one point during the second instance of Sexy Kitten Yarngasm the commentators state that Mayor Reynolds has displayed an interest to the girls. They also said Professor Genki would likely not be fined for the damage caused to the city since that would hurt the Mayor's chances of getting a "private interview" with the girls.
- One of the idle lines from Male Voice 1 says "Those Genki Girls give me a reality climax!"
- There is a building with a billboard that reads "Sad Panda" along with a neon light displays of a crying Panda. It is located near Donnie's garage in the Little Shanghai neighborhood in Saints Row 2.
