NA: Jet the Hawk, a.k.a. the Legendary Wind Master, has a lot of cool stuff going for him besides his name. He's amazing on his Extreme Gear, a flying skateboard. Unfortunately, he's no hero–he leads thieves called the Babylon Rogues, and he can't stand losing to Sonic in anything.

PAL: Being known as the Legendary Wing Master is pretty cool on its own, but to earn that title by being the greatest at riding flying skateboards called Extreme Gear? That's awesome! He's the cocky leader of the Babylon Rogues, a group of thieves, and he can't stand losing to Sonic.
