In the third stage of Vendetta, there are minor villain characters who appear to be caricatures of gay men. They are dressed as leather daddies with black leather hats and pants, suspenders,and naked torsos. Their attacks consist of dry humping the player and licking them. During the fight they also hump a light pole until the bulbs fall down on their heads. This can be seen in the video below.
In 1992, when Vendetta was released for the Sega Genesis, these characters were removed.
