Yoshimitsu is a reoccuring character in the Tekken and Soul games.


Yoshimitsu is a ninja and a member of the Manji clan. When his village is destroyed Yoshimitsu seeks vengeance upon those who destroyed it.



Yoshimitsu is with Kunimitsu in their village when it is suddenly attacked. Fire everywhere and bandits running about Yoshimitsu and his fellow ninja fend them off. After noticing something strange about one of the ninjas Yoshimitsu gives chase.

Rival - Scorpion


Reason - Yoshimitsu sees Scorpion sneaking around and shooting fire. Noticing his strength and obvious ninja attire Yoshimitsu attacks Scorpion. After Scorpion fends off his attack Yoshimitsu asks if he was involved with the attack on his village. Stating that if he was Yoshimitsu would be dead and there would be no more village. Finding his answer rude and dishonorable to the ninja way Yoshimitsu attacks him.

Connection - Yoshimitsu and Scorpion are both ninjas. They both appear in fighting games and cross over fighting games (Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe and StreetFighterXTekken). Yoshimitsu chooses not to embrace his hatred while Scorpion has become engulfed by his hatred for Sub Zero. Both seem to be undead by having skulls for heads. They are also both not the main characters of their series and yet have appeared in every one of the games in their respective series. Both have had their villages attacked and destroyed.


Yoshimitsu: Yo! I'm back!

Kunimitsu: Did you find those who were responsible?

Yoshimitsu: I believe so. I came across many a worthy adversaries on my journey each stronger than the last.

Kunimitsu: Something seems different about you. Is everything ok?

Yoshimitsu: There was a great power they were all after. One that I now come to possess. I wonder if obtaining it will allow me to protect our village...or just bring more danger to it. Though whatever happens I shall be here, and fight to my last breath! YO!


Yoshimitsu is a bit of an oddball on the battlefield. He is strictly a close range fighter and his strikes are precise and deadly and easy to chain combos off of as he juggles his opponents around.
