Vita is a new character introduced in Metal Slug Attack.
Vita is a Rebel Army cyborg. Parts of her have been replaced with mechanical componets, and she wears an eyepatch over her left eye. She has a mix of pink and yellow hair.
A member of the Rebel Army, Vita was badly injured in an unknown mission. Navy, the chief Rebel scientist at the time (the Professor deserted to the Martians), successfully converted her into a cyborg.
She appears to have feelings, as she wanders around battlefields to place flowers for her fallen comrades. She does not mind sacrificing herself for the cause, as she simply sees herself as a cog that must perform its duties. She believes that her head is the only human part of her, as that is what she was told.
The Future Rebels have taken an interest in Vita, as they have used her base to create clones of her called Nova. Vita remote controls Nova via stasis chamber.
Vita first appears in the Extra Ops "Signal Red", where she is sent by Morden to stop the Professor and the Martian Brain Robot. When she arrives, she battles and destroys the Brain Robot. The Professor attempts to attack Vita, but she quickly avoids his attack and knocks him out of his mecha. She is about to kill him when a Red Ring Laser Mecha appears, and after some communication, she spares the Professor and leaves.
She later reappears in the Extra Ops "Next One", where she controls a Nova clone to stop the Regular Army's new machine, the Slug Gigant MK II.
Vita appears in the Regular Army story "The Sand Kingdom and the Golden Hero", where she is sent by Abigail to oversee Assy Nero, which Abul Abbas has borrowed from them. Vita confronts Eri and Fio in a tunnel. While initially having the upper hand, El Dorado gives Eri a Slug Gunner, allowing the two to be on equal terms. Vita is somewhat impressed with the durability of the Slug Gunner and battles Eri. After a long battle, she is defeated and attempts to self-destruct, but abruptly stops when an unknown person calls her, and she simply withdraws after the call is finished.
When Assy Nero is badly damaged, Abigail orders Vita to recover the core engine of Assy Nero. As Abigail is disappointed with Abul, she revokes his privileges, including his control of Vita. Abul begs for Vita to save him, but she calculates that there is a 20% chance of saving Abul before getting intercepted by the Regular Army and decides to abandon Abul.
