"What we're about to witness is the biggest, baddest brain ARMS Labs has ever produced—Dr. Coyle! ARMS is more than just a pet project for her—it's a full-on obsession, people! For years, Dr. Coyle has gone to extreme lengths to develop state-of-the-art ARMS weaponry. And, in some cases, she has even experimented on herself in the name of technological advancement… If that doesn't win her Employee of the Month, nothing will."

Dr. Coyle is a playable fighter in ARMS. She was released in Version 5.0.0 on December 22nd, 2017.


Dr. Coyle is a scientist wearing a large metallic suit, with her design being electricity-based. Her ARMS are made of copper with coils rotating around them, referencing the concept of electromagnetic induction. She has green eyes, green hair which covers her right eye, yellow eyebrows and eyelashes, purple lipstick, and a purple mask. Her outfit consists of a black and green suit with a green top with her logo on it, a black high collar, a zipper and a belt, and grey tights, as well as matching black and green stiletto boots with green soles, and black fingerless gloves with studs and her logo on them.


"She's the director of ARMS Laboratories, and a certified genius. Fascinated with ARMS since she was a young girl, Dr. Coyle decided early on to devote her entire life to ARMS research. Her plans for this research are not necessarily nefarious... She simply wants to be the most powerful ARMS fighter of all time...even if that means subjecting herself to her own experiments. But all her pain and hard work will be worth it if she wins the ARMS Grand Prix!"
—Official Description


Uniquely, Dr. Coyle does not have a jump. Instead, she levitates at all times and is able to increase her height with the jump button. This permits her to dash and guard at any height. She will be registered as being on the "ground" at any altitude; because of this, some weapons such as the Scorpio or Funchuk will always move out in the mode/form they are in when launched in the ground. In addition, she can briefly activate an additional ARM by charging for a long period of time. The ARM appears on a random shoulder of Dr. Coyle and matches the ARM immediately below it. Furthermore, she can temporarily disappear while moving freely, an ability activated by holding guard or getting up after being knocked down.

Grand Prix Ending[edit]


  • She is the oldest known female fighter, at 48 years old. The second oldest Twintelle at 26.
  • Her name is a play on Coil, which her arms are made of.
  • She is the creator of Hedlok, Springtron, and Helix, as well as being responsible for Master Mummy's reanimation.
  • She never gained her ARMS naturally but instead experimented on herself to gain the ARMS ability and succeeded.
  • She's the only ARMS fighter to have unique dialogue when fighting other ARMS fighters.
  • Her win quote against Kid Cobra implies she has a dislike and fear of snakes.
  • She has a slightly similar design, and bears similarities to Sombra from the Overwatch videogame series, as they also have the ability to turn invisible.
    • She also shares similarities with Moira from the Overwatch series since their both scientists at 48 years old, and have the ability to float.
  • She can, in some cases, be seen as the opposite to Mechanica.
    • Both are technically minded women who engineer themselves the ability to use ARMS.
    • Mechanica is the youngest female fighter, utilizing a fighter suit made of scrapyard technology. Dr. Coyle is the oldest, using advanced technology to grant herself the ARMS ability.
    • They are both admirers of ARMS, however Dr. Coyle's investment borders on "obsession".
    • Mechanica is a fan of Ribbon Girl. Conversely, Dr. Coyle has a low opinion of Ribbon Girl, as she believes her pop singer occupation is a waste of time that would be better spent honing her ARMS talents.
    • One of the badges even has Dr. Coyle use one of Mechanica's default ARMS.
  • She is most likely the one who stole blueprints from Mechanica to create Springtron.
